Justin Leonard turns his attention to Robert Trent Jones Golf Club for this week's Quicken Loans National.
Leonard is one of the few in the field with course experience at RTJ Golf Club. He represented Team United States in 1996 as well as 2005. Having a leg up on course experience is nice, but his 6-for-20 record on the season speaks louder than any history can. Gamers can safely overlook Leonard this week. Jul 28 - 6:59 PM

Justin Leonard carded a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

It's not quite a turn-back-the-clock day for the 43-year-old, but Leonard arrived having missed nine consecutive cuts since a T56 at the Northern Trust Open. He's 207th in the FedExCup standings. Today at The Old White TPC, he striped 13 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation en route to five birdies, three of which from 14'11" and longer. He squared only one bogey, that a 5 at the sixth hole, and would eventually sign his card sitting two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Justin Leonard makes his annual pilgrimage to The Old White TPC for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The Texas native has played in all five editions of this event up in West Virginia, with three paychecks to show for it. His best result was a T21 in his 2010 debut, but he hasn't found a way back inside the top 50. Leonard is leaking oil entering the week, with nine straight missed cuts. The veteran has earned double-digit cuts made every year since 1995, but he's running out of events in 2014-15 as he sits at 4-for-17.

Justin Leonard heads to Dublin, Ohio, for this week's Memorial and cracks the field on a sponsor exemption.

The last time Leonard (200th in FedExCup points) cashed a TOUR paycheck was back in February in the form of a T56 at the Northern Trust Open. He's trunk-slammed his last seven starts and 11 times in 15 events on the season, posting a season-best T44 at the Sony Open. The 42-year-old is a respectable 11-for-12 at Muirfield Village, having teed it up four times in the last eight years, with a T34-showing in 2013. His last top 10 (he has two in the tournament) came at the turn of the century as a T2 in 2000.
Jun 2 - 1:18 PM

Justin Leonard is making his 21st career start at THE PLAYERS and enters the week 195th in the FedExCup standings.

Leonard has missed five straight cuts and nine total on 13 starts in 2014-15. His best finish to-date is T44 at the Sony Open back in January. The 42-year-old is 15-for-20 overall at TPC Sawgrass with his win in 1998 as his lone top-10 finish (when he was the 11th-ranked player in the world). He's now ranked 472nd. Leonard has made his last six cuts at THE PLAYERS but hasn't cracked the top 30 in any of them.
May 6 - 10:55 AM

Justin Leonard makes his 18th career start at RBC Heritage and enters the week 193rd in the FedExCup standings.

Leonard has one top 10 (win in 2002) in 17 Heritage starts with three MCs in his last four visits. He's 4-for-11 on the season (zero top 25s) with a T56 at Northern Trust his only cash in his last five events. At 201st in greens in regulation, he'll rely heavily on his third in scrambling and 34th in strokes gained: putting rankings to make the weekend.
Apr 14 - 4:32 PM

Justin Leonard enter the Valspar Championship slotted 186th in the FedExCup standings.

The 42-year-old has fared no better than T44 (Sony Open) among four cuts made in eight starts this season, so he could use a jolt at Copperhead. He just might find it, too. Leonard has cashed in each of his last five visits, three of which yielding a top 20. That includes a share of fourth place in 2013.
Mar 9 - 8:08 PM

Justin Leonard turned in a 4-under-par 35-32=67 for his work in the first round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The veteran began his day on the 10th hole at TPC Scottsdale and broke the monotony of eight pars on his first nine with a 23'11" birdie on the par-3 12th hole. His second nine proved much more eventful, with the longest of his four birdies falling from 12'6" on the par-4 sixth hole and his only bogey of the round coming one hole later. It's becoming a rare occurrence to see Leonard in contention, so his ability to hang around the top of the leaderboard is not a guarantee.

Justin Leoanard makes his sixth start of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season in the Waste Management Phoenix Open later this week.

Leonard is a veteran of a robust 20 trips to TPC Scottsdale. He has twice finished runner-up, but the most recent of those near misses came in 1999. He's missed four of his last six cuts in this event and hasn't cracked the top 10 since 2006. If the current season is any indication, it would be a mistake to place too many eggs in his basket. His best finish thus far has been a T44 at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
Jan 26 - 8:21 PM

Justin Leonard is leaking oil ahead of the 2015 calendar year.

The veteran has missed five of his last six cuts and is not getting any younger. After three starts this season Leonard ranks 134th in strokes gained: tee-to-green and 126th in strokes gained: putting. Not an ideal start for a golfer that has gone 35-for-46 over the past two seasons. Gamers should prepare for a bounce back, but hold off until then.

Justin Leonard tied for sixth in last season's OHL Classic at Mayakoba and is back for another crack at El Camaleón Golf Club this week.

The veteran posted rounds of 70-67-65-67 on the par-71 layout that rewards accuracy over length off the tee. He's played just twice in the new season, missing the cut in the Open and sharing 66th in The McGladrey Classic. He ranked 38th in driving accuracy last season, and is 80th in 2014-15.

Justin Leonard finished 120th in last year's FedExCup standings and prepares for a new season at this week's Open.

The veteran continues to earn weekend tee times, and his record at this event is no different. In six tries, he's missed the cut in just one, but hasn't grabbed a top 25 at the event since 2010. Leonard started strong last season with top 10s in two of his first five tournaments. The story remains the same, as finishes in the 30th to 60th place range will remain plentiful.

Justin Leonard returns to Ridgewood Country Club for the third time in The Barclays.

This venue has hosted the tournament on two occasions, and Leonard was around for both of them. He tied for seventh in 2008 and returned to share 36th two years later.Simply making the cut won't be enough for him to advance from 115th in the FedExCup standings to inside the top 100 for inclusion into the second leg of the Playoffs. Should he conjure up something along the lines of his T7 in '08, he would stand a punchers chance.
Tue, Aug 19, 2014 02:22:00 PM

Justin Leonard enters this week's Greenbrier Classic ranked 91st in the FedExCup standings.

Leonard has consistently been making the weekend this year, with just three missed cuts in 18 events. After three top-30 finishes in his first six starts, he's failed to record a top 30 in his last 12 tournaments. Leonard has conditioned gamers to expect finishes in the 30th to 70th place range, and they should expect more of the same this week.

Justin Leonard carded a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Memorial.

Leonard went 5-for-5 in scrambling and circled four birdies, three of which from at least 10 feet. His longest measured 17'2" at the par-5 11th. He arrived in Ohio ranked 77th in the FedExCup standings, so he's all but assured of returning to the Playoffs for the second consecutive season after falling short in 2011 and 2012. He signed his card today sitting two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.
