Alternate and World No. 245 Blayne Barber signed for a 3-under-par 32-37=69 after the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to conclude his third appearance on 5-over 293, up 10 places to T62 with play still in progress.

The 27-year-old was the only alternate to crack the 120-man field, replacing World No. 14 Danny Willett who withdrew due to illness. He posted rounds of 75-72 to make the cut on the number, chasing with 77 to begin in last place of the 72 to survived the 36-hole trimming. The Tallahassee native's closing 69 is noteworthy on a sunny, yet breezy day at Bay Hill, currently only the third of 30 laps completed that were sub-70. For the week, he totaled 16 birdies, outbalanced by 15 bogeys and three doubles. Barber chased a career-best P2 at the RSM back in November with four missed cuts but has now cashed in three straight, though all outside the top 40.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 239 Blayne Barber fashioned a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Valspar Championship for a 36-hole total of 5-under 137, up 31 places to T9 with play still in progress.

This is the 27-year-old's third appearance and after opening with 70 (two birdies, one bogey), improves to 2-for-3. His best is T42 last year (71-72-75-70). The Tallahassee native is making his 10th start of the season and this will be just a third cash, joining T62 in last start two weeks ago at the Honda, and a career-best P2 at The RSM Classic. He circled four birdies at Nos. 10, 11, 14 and 5, all from between eight and 14 feet, on 10 (of 13) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.692 putts per GIR and 3.590 in SG: Putting, currently pacing the field in the latter with a cumulative 5.959.

Blayne Barber finished on the podium at the 2016 Honda Classic and returns this week for another crack at PGA National's Champion Course.

The Florida native posted a 58th-place finish in his 2015 debut at The Honda Classic. He took it up a notch in his second visit, posting four rounds at even-par 70 or better to find himself T23→T5→3→T3 after each round, respectively. That went in the books as his career-best finish at the time, although he bested it last fall when he lost in a playoff at The RSM Classic. Barber is still finding his legs on the PGA TOUR but this week presents a great opportunity for him to shine once again.

Blayne Barber returns to the site of his PGA TOUR debut as he readies for this week's Genesis Open.

The Auburn product finished T7 at the 2012 NCAA Championship held at Riviera Country Club. The following year he Monday qualified into this event, making it his first career start on the PGA TOUR. Barber finished T42 that year and returned two years later to post a T12. Last year he backpedaled with a missed cut but overall his memories are fond at this week's venue. More recently, Barber ended his fall schedule with a runner-up finish at The RSM Classic but has followed that up with three straight missed cuts since the start of 2017.

World No. 217 Blayne Barber returns for a second Waste Management Phoenix Open after a T45 last year on rounds of 68-71-68-76.

Buoyed by a career-low 63 in Round 1 at The RSM Classic, the Florida native ended the fall portion of the schedule with a career-best P2, losing in a 5-man playoff. He missed two (of three) cuts prior, cashing a T42 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms, and returned from the 6-week holiday break with MCs at the CareerBuilder and last week at the Farmers (by one) on rounds of 70-75. The 27-year-old ranks 23rd on TOUR in greens in regulation (75.49 percent) but 147th in scrambling (57.33 percent).

Blayne Barber fashioned a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of The RSM Classic to conclude his third appearance tied with four others on 17-under 265, and then lost on the third hole of sudden death to PGA TOUR rookie Mackenzie Hughes.

Making his fourth start of the season with a previous best of T42 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms, the 26-year-old began the final frame on 13-under (T6), three shy of Hughes. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, circling five birdies (Nos. 2, 3, 7, 14 and 15) against a lone bogey-5 at the fourth. In sudden death -- which extended into Monday -- the Auburn alum flew his approach long to the par-3 17th, used the putter to get on the surface, and then missed his par putt while Hughes dropped a par-saver from the fringe. His P2 is a career best in his 60th career start, eclipsing T3 at the 2016 Honda Classic.

Blayne Barber pieced together a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of The RSM Classic to reach 13-under 199, down three places into a three-way T6, three adrift of 54-hole leader Mackenzie Hughes.

The 26-year-old began the third round in a four-way T3 on 11-under, three shy of Hughes and maintained that deficit with a four-birdie two-bogey showing. He sandwiched bogey-5s at 11 and 13, the former after whiffing a par-saver from 28 inches, with birdies on 2, 7, 14 and 15, all from inside of 13 feet. The Auburn alum split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, but posted a disappointing -0.883 SG: Putting. He did make a 5'7" come-backer for par on the 18th to end on a good note.

Taking on the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club, Blayne Barber cruised to a 4-under-par 32-36=68 during round two of The RSM Classic, sharing the early clubhouse lead with Hudson Swafford on 11-under 131.

Barber trains at Sea Island Golf Club so it was a bit surprising to see him enter with nothing better than a T75 in two tries. He's on pace to easily set a new personal best as he's circled 13 birdies while swallowing just two bogeys through two days of action. After pelting 17 greens yesterday at the host course (Seaside), he regressed a bit, but still landed an impressive 15 today. Barber's career-best finish is a T3 at the 2016 Honda Classic, but his 36-hole mark of 11-under 131 goes in the books as his new best (by three strokes). If the Auburn product continues to hit 16 greens per round over the weekend, he'll be a serious threat to contend come Sunday afternoon.

Taking on the Seaside Course at Sea Island Golf Club, Blayne Barber pieced together a career-low, 7-under-par 31-32=63 during round one of The RSM Classic, positioning himself two strokes off the early pacesetter Mackenzie Hughes.

Barber arrived with a few close calls at the Seaside Course during his days at Auburn playing in the SEC Golf Championships. Since turning pro he's missed the cut (2015 edition) and posted a T75 (last year). Looks like third time is the charm for Barber who fired a career-low round today, besting his previous of 64 which he's posted twice on the PGA TOUR, most recently at the 2016 Travelers Championship. The 26-year-old gained 2.596 strokes putting, but he couldn't have splashed in the putts if he didn't pepper 17 greens in regulation. Barber walked off the course ranked 10th in strokes gained tee-to-green as well as strokes gained putting. His balanced approach makes him an interesting name to watch as the week progresses and he searches for his sixth career top 10, or even better, his first career win.

Blayne Barber authored a 2-under-par 36-33=69 during round two of The Barclays to reach 3-under 139 at halftime, five strokes off the pace set by Patrick Reed.

The Auburn product split nine (of 14) fairways en route to 12 greens in regulation. His short game helped on several occasions, as well. Most notable was a 55'3" hole out from the fringe at the par-4 12th hole, to collect his first birdie of the day. Barber would add three birdies splashes from 10-to-19 feet before the round was over. The 26-year-old entered the week ranked 112th in the FedExCup and has moved to 71st on the live projected points through two days of work. This extends his streaks of cuts made to eight straight, and he certainly has the potential to make a splash over the next few weeks as he continues his debut appearance in the FedExCup Playoffs.

Blayne Barber made a big move in Round 2 of the Travelers Championship with a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64, reaching the midpoint on 5-under 135 and matching the low round of the week with three others.

This was a season best for the second-year man, eclipsing 66 (three times). It also ties a career low, which he shot in R3 of the 2015 Zurich Classic, and catapults hims 89 spots on the live leaderboard to T5. The 26-year-old peppered 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation, posting 1.688 putts per GIR and 2.904 in SG: Putting. He circled six, including two from between 13 and 20 feet, adding a long of 44'11" on the par-4 10th. Barber entered the week 126th in the FedExCup standings.

Local Auburn product Blayne Barber blended together a 5-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of the Barbasol Championship, placing his one stroke shy of early clubhouse leader Ángel Cabrera.

Barber finished T10 last year at the inaugural edition of this event, played at his old stomping grounds, Grand National’s Lake Course. His local knowledge won out again today, splitting 10 (of 14) fairways en route to 14 greens. From there, he gained 2.595 strokes with the flat stick, converting three putts from outside 11 feet. Barber's understanding of this venue makes him a serious contender this week, and does so at a very opportune time. He currently ranks 126th in the FedExCup race, so a big finish this week could move him inside the Playoff bubble.

Blayne Barber has dipped to 125th in the FedExCup standings as he preps for his second playing of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The second-year man missed the cut on debut last year (by three) after rounds of 76-68. He finished 145th in the FEC standings last season but retained his card by finishing 121st in earnings. The 26-year-old is on a similar trajectory in his sophomore campaign, currently 123rd on the money list with 10 missed cuts in 18 events, including five of his last seven. His T3 at The Honda Classic is his only finish inside the top 30, though almost adding a second with T34 in his last start at the DEAN & DELUCA (72-68-71-68).

Blayne Barber ranks 104th in FedExCup points ahead of his tournament debut at the RBC Heritage.

The second-year man surprised seven weeks ago with a career-best T3 at The Honda Classic sandwiched between three missed cuts, T45 and T42. It's his lone top-30 finish on 13 starts to the season, missing seven cuts. The 26-year-old Auburn alum ranks outside the top 100 in just about every statistical category on TOUR, including 150th in greens in regulation, 127th in scrambling, and 139th in strokes gained: putting.
