Making his season debut, Tour member and World No. 418 Henrik Norlander plays his third straight RSM Classic at Sea Island Golf Club and is in the field on a sponsor invite.
In his second appearance last year following a missed cut the year prior, the 30-year-old nearly won on a sponsor exemption, losing in a five-man playoff on Monday. It's remains his lone top 10 in 49 career TOUR events and used the top-10 finish to gain entry into the Sony Open where he finished T20, his second-best result last season in just five starts for the former TOUR member of two seasons. The Augusta, Georgia, resident is a one-time winner of the Tour in 64 career events, claiming the 2015 Hotel Fitness Championship, the kickoff Finals event, which earned him his second trip to the main stage. In his two TOUR campaigns, the Swede finished 159th and 164th, respectively, in the FedExCup standings. Wed, Nov 15, 2017 06:46:00 PM

Henrik Norlander is looking to bounce back from a recent missed cut as he preps for this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Playing without any PGA TOUR status, Norlander ran with an early-season sponsor's invite and parlayed it into finishes of T2, T20, and T50 to open the season. The good form came to an end two weeks ago at the Farmers Insurance Open, but he's back in action this week thanks to another sponsor's exemption. In two previous trips to this event, Norlander has a missed cut and a T70 to his name (2013, 2016). The 29-year-old has the motivation of earning PGA TOUR status, but other than that, there isn't much in his favor as he readies for his battle with Pebble Beach Golf Links, Pebble Beach Golf Links, Spyglass Hill Golf Club, and Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course.

Sponsor invite and World No. 441 Henrik Norlander painted a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of The RSM Classic to match four others on 17-under 265, and then was eliminated on the third hole of sudden death by champion Mackenzie Hughes, who was the first- second- and third-round leader.

The Swede, who lives in Augusta, Georgia, began the finale in a three-way T9 on 12-under, four back of Hughes. Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, he landed 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, circling five birdies, including a walk-off 3 at the 18th, tying the low lap of the day with three others. In the playoff, which extended into Monday, the 29-year-old bunkered his tee shot to the par-3 17th and missed a par-saver from eight feet, while Hughes made par from the fringe. Making his 45th career start and first start of the season, he posted rounds of 67-66-66-65 and his P2 is a career best, previously T15 at the 2013 Zurich Classic. Norlander's top 10 will get him an exemption into the 2017 Sony Open.

Sponsor invite and World No. 441 Henrik Norlander fashioned a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's third round of The RSM Classic to reach 12-under 200, up 17 spots to T9 with play still in progress.

The 29-year-old missed the cut here last year in his tourney debut (73-70) and is making his first start of the season and first since ending 2015-16 with a missed cut at the Wyndham. He finished last season (his second on TOUR), 164th in the FedExCup standings and cashed three times in the Tour Finals, but it wasn't enough to regain status. The Augusta University alum (2011) opened in twin 67s and tacked on a five-birdie one-bogey 66 today. He pelted 16 greens in regulation and was bogey-free 5-under thru 16 holes, highlighted by a 35-footer for birdie-2 at the 12th, before squaring bogey-4 at 17 (failed sand save).

Henrik Norlander authored a career-tying-low 6-under-par 33-31=64 in today's final round of the Travelers Championship to wrap his second appearance on 7-under 273, up 38 places on the live leaderboard to T22.

The 29-year-old was making his second appearance after 83/MDF in 2013 as a TOUR rookie (75-65-75). He's hoping for his first top-25 finish of the season in his 19th start, but should break his best 72-hole finishes of 2015-16, which is T39 (twice), most recently at the Puerto Rico Open. The Tour grad's actual best this season is T31 at the weather-shortened Zurich Classic (54 holes) and his 64 is a season best (previously 65) and matched a career mark shot in R2 of the 2013 Sony Open. He began the final round on 1-under (T60) after opening in 71-68 (made cut on number) and tacking on a 70 in R3. The Swede, an Augusta University alum, circled seven birdies against a lone bogey on nine (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation.

Henrik Norlander swallowed a late double bogey to settle for a 3-under-par 36-31=67 during the first round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, putting him at T10 on the leaderboard through day one.

A late-round three putt destroyed the hopes of a bogey-free round but the Swede has a lot of good to takeaway from this round. He opened on the back nine and circled four birdies before making the turn, all four coming on putts from 8-to-13 feet. Norlander would add one more birdie to find himself in a share of the lead as he reached the eighth tee box. He played the par-3 eighth in textbook fashion, needing just a 3'10" roll to secure par. Instead, he blasted one 3'1" past the hole and missed the come-backer as well. A three-jack from inside four feet will sting, mentally, but luckily he had just one hole remaining. Despite the late stumble, he's just two off the lead through 18 holes.

Sweden's Henrik Norlander arrives at TPC Southwind for his second edition of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The Tour grad has connected three straight paydays, including a season-best T31 at the weather-shortened Zurich Classic. He's a respectable 9-for-15 on the season but is laboring at 172nd in the FedExCup standings. The 29-year-old ranks 53rd on TOUR in GIR and 29th in Proximity, but 155th in birdie average (3.29). He's 0-for-1 at TPC Southwind with a missed cut in 2013 (72-70).

Henrik Norlander finished T53 during the 2013 Valero Texas Open and returns this week for another crack at JW Marriott TPC San Antonio.

The Swede sits at 29th in the Tour graduate reshuffle after a 6-for-10 opening to the season. That's on the heels of a 2015 Tour season that featured seven top 25s, including a win and a runner-up in 23 starts. We know the upside is there for the Augusta resident, it just hasn't translated to the big stage yet. Gamers should file Norlander under sleeper status for the time being.

Henrik Norlander tees it up this week for his second playing of the Sony Open in Hawaii after finishing T41 in 2013.

The Tour grad finished third in the WCT Finals last season to earn his second trip to the PGA TOUR and first since 2013, where he finished 159th in the FedExCup standings. He entered the 2015-16 season at No. 6 in the priority rankings but dipped to 22nd following the first reshuffle post-RSM Classic. The 28-year-old Swede went 3-for-5 prior to the holiday break, his best a T39 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. He's in the final threesome off No. 10 tee in round one, grouped with TOUR rookie Harold Varner III and Open Qualifier Nick Killpack.

Twenty-eight-year-old Henrik Norlander returned to the PGA TOUR for the 2015-16 season, his second go-around since finishing 159th in the FedExCup standings in 2013.

The Tour grad began the season ranked sixth in the priority rankings but nosedived 16 spots following the first reshuffle at the conclusion of The RSM Classic. He's 3-for-5 with a season best T39 at the Sanderson Farms. Most notably, he opened the Shriners in 6-under 65 (T5), and then missed the cut by three after a 7-over 78. The three-time All American helped Augusta State win back-to-back NCAA titles in 2010 and 2011, a team which also featured Patrick Reed. The collegiate success manifested itself on the pro level when he came from six shots back and won the Tour Finals' opener last season (Hotel Fitness Championship) with a bogey-free, course-record 62 in the final round and a three-stroke victory, his first on the Tour (48 starts).

Henrik Norlander returned to TPC Summerlin at 7:30 a.m. PT today to put the finishing touches on a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 for his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Norlander was one of 13 golfers who couldn't complete the lid-lifter due to darkness. He won't complain, not only because the outdoor sport is his chosen profession but also because he checked up only one stroke behind the clubhouse tri-leaders. The 28-year-old went 6-for-16 in scoring opportunities with six birdies. That set included a pair ranging 11-15 feet. He'll turn around and begin his second round off the 10th tee at 8:30 a.m.

Henrik Norlander conjured up a bogey-free 10-under-par 30-32=62 in the final round of the Hotel Fitness Championship for the course record and the win.

He ends the week at 19-under 269. Norlander circled 10 birdies and settled for eight pars on his stroll around Sycamore Hills GC in the first of four Tour Finals tournaments. Amazingly, he landed a mere 13 GIR. That added up to a 1.231 putting average for the afternoon. He was a rookie on the PGA TOUR in 2013, where he finished a respectable 159th in the FedExCup standings, and has assured himself a card for the 2015-16 season with his play this week. The Swede ended the 2014 Tour season ranked 50th on the money list, and was 47th during the regular season for 2015. That consistency could be valuable to gamers in 2015-16 on the PGA TOUR, as he should stand a decent shot at cracking the top 125 next season.

Henrik Norlander turns his attention to El Bosque Mexico Championship as he readies for his tournament debut.

The former PGA TOUR member missed the cut in his last start, the Chile Classic, but has a pair of top 5s this season in five starts. His 2015 campaign has been all about consistency as he's carded 9-of-14 rounds in red numbers. Norlander currently sits at 14th on the Money List.

With a pair of 2-under-par 70s at Ansley Golf Club's Settindown Creek Course in Roswell, Georgia, Henrik Norlander earned medalist honors at his U.S. Open sectional qualifier.

The former PGA TOUR member buried nine birdies against five bogeys in the 36-hole marathon. He has never competed in a major. The other berth at stake at this site was secured by Smylie Kaufman. The Louisiana State University product submitted respective rounds of 67 and 75 to post 2-under 142, one clear of Trevor Cone in third place. Kaufman circled seven birdies in the opener to pave the way. The only notable that failed to qualify was Ollie Schniederjans. The Georgia Tech senior was a finalist for the Jack Nicklaus and Ben Hogan Awards.

Henrik Norlander posted an 8-under-par 33-31=64 in the first round of the Chile Classic and is in a three-way tie for the lead.

While Norlander was unable to retain his PGA TOUR card last year, he's wasted no time in trying to earn a card for 2014-15. The Swede birdied half of the holes at Prince of Wales Country Club, giving back his lone bogey at the par-4 fifth hole. A veteran of 22 Tour starts, he's yet to record a top-10 finish.
