Justin Leonard is back for his tenth edition of the Valspar Championship.

His ninth trip to the Copperhead Course resulted in his best finish, tying for fourth at 6-under 278. He's been consistent in this tournament, posting 278 in each of his last three efforts. In the eight times he made the cut, he's never posted lower than 278 or higher than 282.
Mar 10 - 9:46 PM

Justin Leonard capped off a strong week at the Humana Challenge with a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 and tied Zach Johnson for third at 25-under 263.

With five birdies in his first eight holes, Leonard put Patrick Reed on notice that he couldn't just coast around Palmer Private at PGA West. The veteran slowed his pace after that, finding just two more birdies to go with eight pars the rest of the way, but still managed his best finish since a runner-up in 2011. He went his last 45 holes without a blemish.

Justin Leonard submitted a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the third round of the Humana Challenge and is tied for fifth at 18-under 198 entering the finale.

Leonard took on La Quinta Country Club in the third round, circling seven birdies without a blemish on his afternoon. His round was solid across the board, splitting 11 of 14 fairways, landing 13 GIR and putting to a 1.615 average. Already off to a solid start in 2013-14, he'll go for his second top 10 at Palmer Private in his final round.
Jan 18 - 6:24 PM

Justin Leonard added a 5-under-par 37-30=67 at PGA West's Palmer Private in his second round of the Humana Challenge.

After a wondrous 66 at Nicklaus Private on Thursday, he negotiated eight birdies today to help offset one bogey and a double. He buried six of the birdies coming in, but five of the entire lot disappeared from beyond 10 feet. The most notable found the cup from 26'3" at the par-4 seventh hole and six yards from the fringe at 17. At 11-under 133 through 36 holes, he's in striking position for the weekend. Look for him at La Quinta Country Club in the third round.
Jan 17 - 5:23 PM

Justin Leonard posted a 6-under-par 36-30=66 in his opening round of the Humana Challenge at PGA West's Nicklaus Private.

With a 4-for-4 start to 2013-14 that includes a top 10 in México, the 41-year-old is making a case as a long-term sleeper this season. His latest example today featured 13 greens in regulation en route to an eagle (at the par-5 eighth hole) and six birdies. He started on the 10th hole and promptly bogeyed Nos. 11 and 14, but he finished like a veteran to finish one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders. Next up in his rotation is Palmer Private. The 12-time PGA TOUR winner hasn't hoisted any hardware on the circuit since the 2008 St. Jude Classic.
Jan 16 - 5:35 PM

Justin Leonard crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

With what is now a 4-for-4 start to the season, including a T6 at the Mayakoba, Leonard is rekindling some old fantasy value. He got up and down all four times today and picked off four birdies. The set included a conversion from 17'8" at the 10th hole and 10'9" at 5. He reached the halfway point in 6-under 134 and sits four strokes off the overnight lead.
Jan 10 - 11:19 PM

Justin Leonard is a PGA TOUR veteran by every definition of the word.

If you want experience on the course, he has 533 events under his belt. If it's success you're after, his 12 wins including an Open Championship should fit the bill. Currently 41, his age angle covered as well. While we learned several years back that he is no longer an elite option, his perfect record in three starts this season, including one top 10, all for him to be a solid mid-to-late-round option in many formats.

Justin Leonard closed out his week at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a final-round 4-under-par 33-34=67 and is the first man in the clubhouse at 15-under 269.

With preferred lies in place for the final lap around El Camaleón Golf Club, Leonard took advantage to the tune of six birdies and just two bogeys. Somewhat surprisingly for the short hitter, he managed to corral birdies at each of the three par 5s. Of note, he split every fairways on the afternoon and landed 14 GIR. His best finish of 2013 was a T4 in Tampa Bay back in March, and his most recent top 15 was a T13 at The Open Championship. After a couple of weak finishes in his first two starts of 2013-14, this was just what the doctor ordered headed into the holidays.

Justin Leonard spun a third-round bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 and reaches the 54-hole mark at 11-under 202.

Leonard circled six birdies, including three on par 4s, two on par 3s and one on a par 5. He's avoided bogeys well all week, scrambling to the tune of 80 percent. Another strong round in the finale later this afternoon could result in a top-10 finish.

Justin Leonard is scheduled to compete for the fourth time in The McGladrey Classic.

For those counting at home, that means the former Open Champion has never skipped the Sea Island staple. Perhaps that's somewhat surprising, seeing that his best finish was a T45 in 2010. He finished 79th with an MDF in his only start of the 2013-14 season at the Open.

Justin Leonard continues his Playoff run at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Leonard missed just his fifth cut of the year at Libety National last season, but heads to TPC Boston where he sports a respectable record. He's made five of six cuts here, with a T7 in 2008 as the highlight. He'll need something along those lines this week if he is to move inside the top 70 from his 98th standing and advance to the third leg of the FedExCup Playoffs

Justin Leonard turned in a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and enters the finale at 6-under 210.

The veteran is fresh off his second-best finish of the season, a T13 at The Open Championship, and is continuing his fine play at Glen Abbey. His round featured five birdies and 13 pars, despite splitting just six (of 14) fairways. He got it done with the irons, landing 14 GIR and picking up over two strokes on the field with the flat stick. Despite that, only two of his birdies fell from outside 10 feet.

Justin Leonard wrapped up his week at The Open Championship with an even-par 38-33=71 to lock up a top-15 finish at 5-over 289.

Leonard had a front-row seat for Ian Poulter's romp around Muirfield, and join in on the fun late in his round. After playing the first 11 holes in 3-over, Leonard rattled off birdies on 12, 17 and 18 to end his afternoon. With only one top-25 finish on the PGA TOUR this season, this week comes at a nice time.

Justin Leonard will play the Memorial for just the second time since 2007.

In his 12 previous attempts, he has his share of success. He tied for second in 2000, but since then does not own a top 10. Seemingly because of that, he scaled back on his trips to Muirfield Village after 2004. It's been a strange 2013 for Leonard. He's had no trouble making 12 of 15 cuts, but his T4 in Tampa Bay remains his lone top 25 of the season.
