PGA TOUR rookie Blayne Barber prepares for his first loop of Sedgefield Country Club at this week's Wyndham Championship.
In his first attempt at navigating the TOUR schedule, Barber is 12-for-25 with four top 10s, but enters the week 141st in the FedExCup standings. Strength of field factors in here, with three of his top finishes coming at the Sanderson Farms Championship (T9), OHL Classic at Mayakoba (T9), and T10 at the opposite-field Barbasol Championship. Following the Barbasol, Barber sat on the coveted 125th slot in the FedExCup standings, but has finished T91/MDF-CUT-CUT in his last three. In total, he's missed seven of his last nine cuts to fall outside the playoff picture. Aug 18 - 5:26 PM

Blayne Barber circled nine birdies in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open and signed for a 4-under-par 33-35=68.

Fresh off his fourth top 10 of the season, today's aggregate doesn't reflect how well the rookie scored when given opportunities. He hit 14 greens in regulation, so he missed only five looks at breaking par. His longest conversion was his last, a walk-off birdie from 17'3" at the par-5 18th hole. However, Barber failed to save par on the other four holes, settling for three bogeys and a double, and his last bogey needed to find the target from 17'3" at the par-4 17th. When the dust settled, he found himself just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Blayne Barber signed for a 3-under-par 31-37=68 after the final round of the inaugural Barbasol Championship to post 12-under 272, good for a six-way tie for 10th place.

Barber began his final frame at 9-under (T12) and four shots back. On his round, he overshadowed three bogeys with six birdies en route to his fourth top 10 of his rookie season on 22 starts. The 25-year-old, who graduated from Auburn University and still lives in the area, chased down the leaders early on by circling birdies on Nos. 3, 5, 6 and 7 to reach 13-under. He stalled out playing his next eight holes in 2-over, squaring bogey at 10 and 13. Two birdies at 16 and 18 sandwiched a third bogey of the day coming at the par-3 17th. He three-putted the 10th from 26 feet and toiled in the rough on the par-5 13th for the other dropped shots. The Web.com Tour grad split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation on Sunday. He's in the field at next week's RBC Canadian Open and is a projected 125th in the FedExCup standings.

Blayne Barber sets his eyes on Grand National's Lake Course for the inaugural edition of this week's Barbasol Championship.

Barber will play the role of hometown hero this week in Opelika, Alabama. The Auburn alum arrives ranked 132nd in the FedExCup race. His familiarity with the area should give him a leg up this week and should be firmly on the radar for One-and-Done gamers.

Blayne Barber settled for a 6-over-par 38-38=76 in his return to competition at today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

While he successfully sectional qualified for the U.S. Open on Monday, Barber failed to carry that form over at TPC Southwind. He landed only eight greens in regulation today and wiped away three birdies with five bogeys and two doubles. He had sat out the last three tournaments for the birth of his first child.

Blayne Barber is scheduled to compete in next week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The rookie has been out for the birth of his first child (on May 28) since missing the cut at Quail Hollow four weeks ago. He's drifted 12 spots in the FedExCup standings to 108th in the meantime, but a competitive rest might not be such a bad thing as he grinds through his rookie season. Not surprisingly he'll be making his debut at TPC Southwind.

After missing the cut at last week's Wells Fargo Championship, Blayne Barber alerted his followers on Twitter that he would be away to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.

Barber wrote on Friday, May 15, "Really fought hard this week, just didn't quite hit it well enough. Thankful for the positives though. Onward to becoming a dad!" This explains why he didn't commit to this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial or next week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. The PGA TOUR rookie is 96th in the FedExCup standings, so the only sleep he should be losing will occur shortly after the baby is born.

Barber's career (and season) best on TOUR are a pair of T9s back in November.

Today, he went 7-for-13 in scoring chances with seven birdies. Four of the conversions stretched 10-15 feet. He signed his card slotted three swings adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Barber currently ranks outside the top 75 in most key statistics, but we are still waiting for him to blossom.

It rolled 33'7" for birdie at the par-3 14th hole. At 7-under 137, he's six shots off Morgan Hoffmann's 36-hole pace. Barber was the last of 15 golfers to finish inside the top 10 on the leaderboard today.

Blayne Barber has been added to the published field of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Barber was a late entry into the field of 156. He missed the cut at Torrey Pines by three strokes, so the rookie will have had a couple of extra days to recharge for the thinner field on the Monterey Peninsula. Barber's consecutive T9 continue to provide the wind in his sail this season. He's currently 81st in the FedExCup standings.
