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. Nov 8 - 5:45 PM

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.

David Lingmerth hopes the third time is the charm as he preps for TPC Boston at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Swede is 0-for-2 at TPC Boston and has never secured a cut made in either of the first two legs of the FedExCup Playoffs (0-for-3 at Barclays). It's not a fear of the bright lights because he's recorded four top 25s in eight major championship appearances. At 58th in the FedExCup race, a cut made would go a long way to secure his spot in next week's BMW Championship and help him toward the goal of earning his way to East Lake for the first time in his career. With top 25s in 28 of his 99 career PGA TOUR starts, the upside is there for the Swede, but gamers should be well aware of his poor track record at TPC Boston before pulling the trigger.

Sweden's David Lingmerth awoke to card a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the Men's Olympic Golf Competition to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 207, up 10 places on the live leaderboard to T4, six back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

The 29-year-old began the third frame on 3-under (T14) after opening in 69-70. He went out in 1-over with eight pars and an opening bogey-6 on the first on a failed scramble. The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident circled four birdies on his inward half, playing his final 17 holes blemish-free. He birdied Nos. 10, 13, 14 and 18, two from inside of 11 feet, adding a 48-footer for birdie-2 at the 14th and walking-off with a 25'7" birdie at the par-5 18th.

David Lingmerth will fly the Swedish flag at the 31st Olympiad in Rio de Janeiro this week.

The two-time All American (whilst at the University of West Florida and then University of Arkansas) has enjoyed a solid summer of golf which has seen him make five top 30 finishes in strong events: at the BMW PGA Championship, the Memorial Tournament, the U.S. Open, the Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship. In that spell he has only failed when missing the cut at the Scottish Open and Open Championship. If that form represents the positives (bar the links golf problems), the negatives come when he plays the Olympic Golf Course designer's layouts. He shot 82-72 to miss the cut at Castle Stuart and on Gil Hanse's renovations he has a missed cut at Plainfield, two of them in two starts at TPC Boston and T49 in a limited field at Doral. Nor is he great on paspalum greens: MC-MC at El Camaleon in the OHL Classic and T64-T39-T14 at CIMB Classic in Kuala Lumpur.

David Lingmerth kicked off his week at the 98th PGA Championship with a 2-under-par 34-34=68, placing him three off the early pace set by Jimmy Walker.

The Swede didn't have his best stuff approaching the green but he was a magician around the greens today. Despite landing just eight greens in regulation, he swallowed just two bogeys. It all started with a 36'11" hole out from just off the green to secure his first birdie of the day at the par-4 third hole. After that, he converted three putts from outside 10 feet before the round was through. Lingmerth finished T12 at last year's PGA, held at Whistling Straits, and is off to another good start this week in Springfield, New Jersey.

David Lingmerth came up four strokes shy at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational after posting a 2-over-par 35-37=72 during the closing round, finishing the week T7 at 2-under 278.

The Swede struggled tee-to-green from the get-go, finding water on his first tee ball of the day. He split just four (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation. His putter tried to keep him in the mix, draining four putts from outside seven feet, including a 26-footer to save par at the par-5 16th hole. That was following his second water ball of the day. His poor ball-striking was too much to overcome as he lost 2.760 strokes tee-to-green. Despite the disappointing finale, Lingmerth now owns a T6 and T7 on his WGC-Bridgetstone resume, and gamers should jot down a note regarding his fondness of Firestone Country Club.

David Lingmerth pieced together a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational to reach the three-quarter pole on 4-under 206, down one place to solo third, one shot shy of 54-hole co-leaders Scott Piercy and Jason Day.

The 28-year-old will be seeking his second PGA TOUR title on Sunday in his 96th career start and first since breaking through across the state at the 2015 Memorial. He began the third frame in solo second on 3-under, one swing back of 36-hole leader Day. Playing out of the final twosome, he mustered half (of 14) fairways and hit a week-best 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.750 putts per GIR. The Swede birdied Nos. 3, 6 and 11 the conventional way from between 10 and 24 feet, and used the flat stick from the fringe at the 13th to drop a 24-footer for birdie-3. He bogeyed holes 5, 8 and 16 on failed scrambles.

David Lingmerth bolted up the leaderboard during round two of the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational with a 3-under-par 31-36=67 to reach the weekend at 3-under 137, currently the leader in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth is in second place, one back of 36-hole leader Jason Day.

The Swede split half of the potential 14 fairways today and landed just six greens in regulation. Despite the lackluster ball-striking, Lingmerth gained 5.064 strokes over the field today. The weapon of choice was the flat stick as he roped in three putts from outside 18 feet, the longest being a 26'5" birdie bomb at the par-4 ninth hole. He also holed out twice from just off the green, gaining 1.978 strokes around-the-green. Lingmerth finished T6 in his 2015 debut at Firestone Country Club, and now finds himself T2 on the live leaderboard. It's safe to say he likes this venue in Akron, Ohio.

David Lingmerth enjoyed a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the U.S. Open in Oakmont, Pennsylvania, to wrap his second appearance on 3-over 283, up 22 spots on the live leaderboard to T15 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Lingmerth finished solo 12th and Jim Furyk posted the low round with 66.

The Swede finished T17 in his U.S. Open debut in 2013 at Merion GC so Pennsylvania has been good to him. His best finish in a major is T12 at the 2015 PGA Championship, so he could be around that mark by day's end. The 28-year-old split 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 13 greens in regulation and totaled 28 putts. He raced out with four birdies over his first five holes before back-to-back bogeys on holes 7 and 8 to turn 2-under. Lingmerth added birdie-3s at 10 and 15 before a walk-off bogey-5 at the last. For the week, he totaled 119 putts (1.65 avg.) and posted rounds of 72-69-75-67.

David Lingmerth returns to Muirfield Village GC to defend his title at the Memorial Tournament.

The Swede was the unlikely winner here last year as a 400/1 long shot in his third appearance. He led by one after opening in 67-65, and trailed by three after a third-round even-par 72. The 28-year-old shot 69 in the finale to catch 54-hole leader Justin Rose and then won his maiden TOUR title with par on the third hole of sudden death. He's 12-for-16 this season with P2 at the CareerBuilder a lone top 10 -- and has just one top-30 finish in 10 starts since. Of course, he wasn't exactly in-form last year either heading in, missing four of five cuts with his only cash a T33.

As he chases a Ryder Cup berth David Lingmerth makes his debut in England at the BMW PGA Championship on the West Course at Wentworth.

In starting the week ranked No. 50 in the world rankings Lingmerth has already claimed a victory sorts: a place in the British Open at Royal Troon in July. A useful little win, but in truth he has been hanging on to that spot since he was T2 at the CareerBuilder Challenge in January. Since then he has made 11 starts and claimed just one top 30, when T17 at the Wells Fargo Championship. He missed the cut in Ireland, but did make 75% of the greens in regulation (which would have ranked him 6th in field had he made the weekend and maintained the stats) but he struggled with the putter.
May 24 - 8:59 AM

David Lingmerth authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Wells Fargo Championship to warp his fourth appearance on 2-under 286, up 35 places on the live leaderboard to T16.

Whatever Lingmerth's final position ends up being, it's a moral victory of such. He hadn't played more than 36 holes in each of his three previous visits to Quail Hollow and hadn't broken par. The Swede put three red numbers on the board this week posting rounds of 71-71-76 and today's four-birdie stroll. For the week, he totaled 14 birdies, eight bogeys and two double-bogeys, which came back-to-back on holes nine and 10 in R3. The Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident heads home for his third PLAYERS. He missed the cut on last visit in 2014 but nearly won on debut in 2013. Having co-led thru 54 holes, he shot a 72 for a three-way T2, two back of champion Tiger Woods.

David Lingmerth signed for an even-par 35-36=71 after the second round of the RBC Heritage to reach the midpoint on 4-under 138, down one spot on the live leaderboard to T4. UPDATE: With play completed for the day, Lingmerth is in a four-way T7, two back of 36-hole tri-leaders Kevin Chappell, Jason Day and Charley Hoffman.

The 28-year-old missed the cut in 2013 in his only other appearance and opened his second visit with a five-birdie one-bogey 67. His driving accuracy remained solid in round two, peppering 13 (of 14) fairways and thru 36 holes, currently leads the field in that category at 85.71 percent (24/28). The Swede digressed slightly to 11 greens in regulation (from 13), but dropped big time in strokes gained: putting from 2.778 to -1.225 at the time he signed his card. He erased three birdies with three bogeys but did end on a positive, walking-off with a birdie from 8'11" on the par-4 ninth, his final hole of the day.
Apr 15 - 1:15 PM

David Lingmerth fired out of the gates with a 4-under-par 31-36=67 in the first round of the RBC Heritage, currently one stroke off the co-leaders.

The Swede wasted no time today, lighting up the scoreboard five times in the opening nine holes. Other than a 3'4" roll at the par-5 second, they all came from outside 13 feet. Overall, the five birdies totaled 94'3" of putts made. He calmed down on the back nine, trading eight pars with a lone bogey. The bogey came at the par-3 14th where he found a greenside bunker and missed on the 11'3" par-saving attempt. Lingmerth sits at T3 through day one and will remain a seriously contender if he can keep rolling in the putts like today.
