David Lingmerth has played just one major in 2017, finishing T21 at the U.S. Open; he'll get the ball rolling again with a start at this week's PGA Championship at Quail Hollow Club in North Carolina.
Despite never having cracked the top 10, the Swede has a quietly impressive record at this level. He's pegged it up in nine majors and made the top 25 in five of them. That run includes T22 (2016) and T12 (2015) in the last two editions of this tournament. As for course form, Lingmerth struggled on his first few looks at Quail Hollow, missing the cut from 2013-2015. But on his fourth visit, the 2015 Memorial winner posted T17. Lingmerth is down at 102 in the current FedExCup race after just one top 10 this season (T5 Quicken Loans) but he has shown admirable consistency with eight finishes of T27 or better in his last 10 starts.

David Lingmerth grinded out a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64 during round one of The Greenbrier Classic, staking an early share of the clubhouse lead as the morning wave nears a conclusion.

The Swede arrived on the heels of five straight top 30s, including last week's T5 where he led after each of the first three rounds at the Quicken Loans National. He also owns a strong track record at The Old White TPC (three top 20s in three tries). The trends were converging and the trends didn't lie. It wasn't easy, though, as Lingmerth lost 0.696 strokes approaching-the-green, leaning heavily on the short game. In fact, he walked off the course gaining 4.710 strokes putting after splashing home three putts from outside 18 feet in addition to a plethora of clutch par-savers (four from the 6-to-9 foot range). Lingmerth also sank a 24'10" birdie from the fringe to pad his strokes gained around-the-green numbers. There is no reason to expect a slowdown from the Swede, given his strong performance over the last two months.

First- second- and third-round leader David Lingmerth labored to a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National, dropping four places to a season-best T5 on 4-under 276, three adrift of a two-man playoff involving Charles Howell III and eventual champ Kyle Stanley.

After kicking off in 65-65-73, the World No. 99 began with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Daniel Summerhays, who shot 74. It was his second career 54-hole lead/co-lead (2013 PLAYERS), dropping to 0-for-2. The 29-year-old landed nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.214 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.454 tee-to-green and 2.100 on-the-green. He circled two birdie-3s at Nos. 8 and 14, both from inside of five feet, outbalanced by three bogey-5s and double bogey-6 at 11 (tee ball in the water). The Swede does manage a second top 5 at the QLN in four tries (3rd/2015), and his sixth top 25 of the season in 18 starts, first top 10, supplanting a previous-best T12 (DEAN & DELUCA).

First- and second-round leader and World No. 99 David Lingmerth patched together a 3-over-par 37-36=73 on Day 3 of the Quicken Loans National to post 7-under 203, good for a one-shot lead over Daniel Summerhays. UPDATE: This is Lingmerth's second 54-hole lead/co-lead in 119 career starts (2013 PLAYERS T1, finished T2).

After kicking off with twin 65s, the 29-year-old led by two over playing competitor Geoff Ogilvy and by four over Summerhays. He outbalanced two birdies at Nos. 4 and 14 , both from inside of five feet, with bogeys at 1, 10 and 17, and double bogey-6 at 4 (tee ball in the water). The Arkansas product conjured six (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation, losing strokes in all strokes gained categories with the exception of 0.549 around-the-green. He posted 1.778 putts per GIR and -0.672 SG: Putting, needing 28 total putts. The Swede is vying for his second TOUR title in 119 career starts, joining the 2015 Memorial where he was the 36-hole leader by one, eventually prevailing in a two-man playoff.

Overnight leader and World No. 99 David Lingmerth smoothed a day-tying-low bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the Quicken Loans National to post 10-under 130, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead by two over Geoff Ogilvy, who also shot 65. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth leads by two over Ogilvy and had the only blemish-free round of the day.

After an opening 65, the 29-year-old led by one over six players. On 10 (of 14 ) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he gained 4.896 strokes tee-to-green, including 2.052 around-the-green. The University of Arkansas product circled five birdies at Nos. 2, 3, 5, 10 and 18, four conventional and adding a pitch-in 4 at the second from 14'10" away. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.664 SG: Putting, converting two scoring tries from between 18 and 25 feet. The Swede has one TOUR win in 118 career starts, claiming the 2015 Memorial where he was the 36-hole leader, which is his only other lead/co-lead thru 36 holes holes.

David Lingmerth bombarded TPC Potomac at Avenel Farm with a 5-under-par 34-31=65 during the opening round of the Quicken Loans National, claiming the title of clubhouse leader as play winds down for the day.

This week's venue has been completely overhauled since the PGA TOUR had last hosted an event here. However, the Web.com Tour used the course on two occasions and Lingmerth is one of the golfers to have notable course history from those events. The Swede won the 2012 Neediest Kids Championship and that knowledge appears to be paying dividends on day one. Lingmerth was brilliant off the tee today, striping 12 (of 14) fairways but really did the damage on the greens, gaining 2.745 strokes putting by round's end thanks to a trio of putts converted from outside 11 feet. On top of that, he also holed out from off the green (19'5") for birdie at the par-4 fourth hole. This will be Lingmerth's second career first-round lead on the PGA TOUR, with the first one coming just three starts ago at the Memorial Tournament (finishing T15 come Sunday).
Jun 29 - 6:26 PM

World No. 101 David Lingmerth tossed up a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole tally of 8-under 202, up 24 places on the live leaderboard to T3 and tying the clubhouse lead with C.T. Pan and Paul Casey. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth is T4, four short of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

The 29-year-old is making his third appearance at TPC River Highlands with one previous cash, a T64 on last visit in 2015 (68-68-72-70). He arrived off three consecutive top-25 finishes, including a T21 at last week's U.S. Open. After kicking off in 67-70, the University of Arkansas product hit nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.151 strokes approaching-the-green and eked out a 0.431 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at the first (failed scramble), but then played his final 17 in blemish-free 6-under, circling holes 3, 5, 8, 10, 15 and 17, five from between 10 and 30 feet with a long of 29'1" at the par-4 third. The Swede posted a stellar 1.538 putts per GIR, 4.885 SG: Putting, needing just 26 total putts. He's won one TOUR event in 117 career events, the 2015 Memorial Tournament where he was the 36-hole leader and T2 thru 54 holes.
Jun 24 - 5:03 PM

Overnight co-leader David Lingmerth slowed his pace in round two of the Memorial Tournament, settling for a 2-over-par 37-37=74, arriving at the weekend on 5-under 139.

Lingmerth posted poor ball-striking numbers in R1 by traditional metrics (7 fairways, 12 GIR) but today it was the strokes gained metrics that suffered. The Swede lost 1.469 strokes approaching-the-green, a 5.859 stroke difference, round-over-round. His putter also cooled off as he sank just one putt from outside six feet today. Lingmerth will try to erase this round from his memory bank as he enters the weekend inside the top 10.
Jun 2 - 6:04 PM

David Lingmerth breezed through Muirfield Village Golf Club during round one of the Memorial Tournament, carding a 7-under-par 31-34=65, grabbing the early title of clubhouse leader on Thursday morning.

The Swede wasn't perfect today but he made the most of his opportunities. He split half of the potential 14 fairways and landed just 12 greens, not the numbers you would expect from a round of 65. He got the job done by converting two birdies from the 18-to-26 foot range and also drained an 8'5" eagle putt at the par-5 15th to pick up two strokes. Lingmerth walked off the course gaining 3.52 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.86 strokes putting. If he hangs onto this lead it will be his first R1 lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR, fourth time leading/co-leading after any round, and first time leading/co-leading since his 2015 victory at this event.

Local resident David Lingmerth led off THE PLAYERS Championship with a 3-under-par 37-32=69 to throw his name into the mix early on Thursday.

Lingmerth got his day started early (7:43 a.m. ET tee time) and wasted no time getting the scoring started. He splashed home an 11'8" birdie at his opening hole, the par-4 10th and followed that up with two more birdies from 11-to-12 feet. The Swede would make it a four-pack, with the fourth birdie coming from much shorter (4'3"). Lingmerth would slow his pace from there but still walked off the course gaining 3.405 strokes over the field with this 3-under 69. The Ponte Vedra Beach resident is no stranger to success here, finishing T2 in his 2013, although he's missed the cut in two return visits.
May 11 - 2:57 PM

David Lingmerth and Danny Lee hung up a 10-under-par 31-31=62 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 10-under 134, up 35 places on the live leaderboard to T9 and matching the low round in the clubhouse with four other squads.

The international's tread water on Day 1 in alternate shot, silencing five birdies with three bogeys and double bogey-6 at eight. As would be expected (or should be), they were much better at four-ball on Friday, camouflaging a lone bogey-5 at 15 with nine birdies and eagle-3 at the seventh, the latter Lingmerth's only scoring contribution on the front nine (from 8'11"). Lee wrote down birdies at Nos. 2, 8 and 9 on his first nine, the latter from 32'4" at the par-3 ninth, adding birdies at 13 and 17, ending their scoring with a 27'2" birdie-2. Along with Lingmerth's 3 at the par-5 seventh, he circled 10, 11, 14 and 16, two from between nine and 10 feet, though he did miss a birdie try at the par-5 18th from 4'5".
Apr 28 - 3:27 PM

World No. 93 David Lingmerth embarks on his third RBC Heritage and checks in at 167th in the FedExCup standings.

The Swede is down 25 places in the world ranking since the end of last year, indicative of his results. He's 5-for-9 on the season with zero top 25s and a best of T27 at the Valspar three starts ago (70-72-72-68). The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident chased with a made cut at Bay Hill, 70-72, but played the weekend in 72 and a career-worst 88 to finish 72nd (last place). He arrives off a missed cut at the Shell (by three) on rounds of 71-74. The 29-year-old is 1-for-2 at the RBC with a MC on debut in 2013 and T33 last year, where he was T7 thru 36 holes (67-71), but closed with 76-72.

David Lingmerth will debut in both the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters and the European Tour's Desert Swing this week at Doha GC.

The Swede has always been based on the PGA Tour, but made an attempt last year to qualify for the European Ryder Cup team, taking up membership of the European Tour to do so. He played the minimum number of starts and that didn't include a trip to the Middle East for regular tour stops. Indeed he has always been very committed to the PGA Tour's East Coast Swing which takes place at the same time. But, in truth, the CareerBuilder Challenge aside (he has twice finished second in it) he has an average record in California. Perhaps he thinks the key is desert conditions and he'd be better off keeping to them (rather than hitting the Pacific coast)? Opened his year with T49 in the Sony Open then T34 last week in this year's CareerBuilder Challenge.
Jan 23 - 1:43 PM

David Lingmerth will hope to extend his first year as a European Tour member in the Nedbank Golf Challenge at Gary Player Country Club this week.

The Swedish 29-year-old took up membership in a doomed bid to make the European Ryder Cup team. Four regular Tour starts have seen him miss three cuts and finish T22 at the BMW PGA Championship. But an early summer sweet spot, which began at Wenworth, and also included top 25s in the U.S. Open and Bridgestone Invitational has helped him to 72nd in the Race to Dubai. That said, he'll need a decent check to bounce up into the top 60 who earn a spot in the Final Series finale in Dubai next week. And since finishing T11 in the Olympic Tournamen he has failed to finish better than T60 in six starts, with three missed weekends thrown in there, so the omens aren't great.

David Lingmerth ranks 65th on the FedExCup big board ahead of this week's BMW Championship.

In four seasons on TOUR, the Swede has cracked the FEC Playoffs three times now. He's yet to qualify for the TOUR Championship and he'll need a giant finish this week to change that. On the season he is 17-for-23 with eight top 25s. Statistically he ranks top 85 in strokes gained off-the-tee, approach-the-green, and putting while he's just 151st in strokes gained around-the-green. Without the distance to overpower Crooked Stick, Lingmerth will need to be striping fairways at an incredibly high rate if he wants to jump into contention.
