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).

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.

Blayne Barber navigated PGA National in a final-round even-par 33-37=70 to wrap his second visit to The Honda Classic in 5-under 275, good for a two-way T3 with Justin Thomas, four adrift of champion Adam Scott.

The Tallahassee native posted a 58th-place finish in his tourney debut in 2015 (75-69-72-71) and entered Sunday's finale in solo third after opening in 70-66-69, four shy of 54-hole co-leaders Scott and Sergio Garcia. Playing out of the penultimate twosome with Thomas, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation but mustered just three circles for 1.800 putts per GIR. All three birdies came on his first half and outpaced one square to turn 2-under. The 26-year-old stalled out with a birdie-less 2-over inward nine with two more failed scrambles but hung on for a career-best T3 in his 39th event and first top 25 of the season in his 10th start. His previous career mark was T8 at the 2015 Zurich Classic.

Blayne Barber patched together a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's third round of The Honda Classic for a three-day total of 5-under 205, up two places on the leaderboard, four adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Sergio Garcia and Adam Scott.

The Tallahassee native was four back (T5) of 36-hole leader Rickie Fowler after opening his second Honda in 70-66. Searching for his maiden win in his 39th career start, he overshadowed two bogeys with three birdies to bump to solo third. The second-year man striped 10 (of 14) fairways and mustered 10 greens in regulation, registering 1.700 putts per GIR. His split included two conversions from inside of seven feet and a long of 15'11" at the par-4 eighth. The 26-year-old dropped shots on six and 11 on failed scrambles but did curve in a five-footer at the par-5 last. He entered the week 5-for-9 on the season with a best of T34 at the CareerBuilder and his career mark is T8 at the 2015 Zurich Classic.

Blayne Barber styled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the Honda Classic, completing his first 36 holes at 4-under 136.

Kicking off his round on the back nine, he splashed in a 16'5" birdie blast on the par-4 11th and followed it up with a 10'7" birdie roll on the following hole. The putter went quiet until it turned on him at the par-4 16th, leading to a three-putt bogey. He bounced back nicely with three more putts from outside nine feet on the round. Ultimately, there has been much more good than bad with the flat stick for Barber, ranking fifth in the field in stroked gained:putting through two rounds. The Florida native sixs four adrift the clubhouse leader, and is in great position to grab his first top 25 of the season.

Blayne Barber returns to his home state for a second attempt at this week's Honda Classic.

Barber grew up in Florida and attended UCF for a year before transferring to Auburn. He's very familiar with golfing in Florida and a 58th-place in his 2015 Honda debut tells us that he can survive the Bear Trap. Barber is just 4-for-9 on the season and still searching for his first top 30. PGA National's Champion Course could be a comfortable landing zone for Barber to get his season turned around.

Blayne Barber breezed through La Quinta Country Club with a bogey-free, 33-33=66 in round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge.

The Auburn alum put on a ball-striking clinic in round one, splitting 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 15 greens in regulation. He was blemish-free as he navigated the bermudagrass greens of La Quinta CC. The highlight of the round came at the par-5 fifth where he found the green in two and rolled in his first eagle of 2016. The 25-year-old still has a lot of untapped potential, and gamers should keep a very close eye on him as the week progresses.

In last season's 26-start rookie campaign, Blayne Barber finished 145th in the FedExCup standings but retained his card at 122nd in earnings.

The 25-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Christmas Day, had four top 10s last season on 26 starts, including a career-best T8 at the Zurich Classic at the end of April. He's made five starts thus far in 2015-16, completing 72 holes once (T39, Sanderson Farms), and missed a 54-hole cut by one at The RSM Classic on rounds of 70-70-70. The Auburn alum ranks 188th in both strokes gained categories and 196th in the all-around.

Blayne Barber finished inside the top 10 last year in his OHL Classic at Mayakoba debut and returns for another crack at El Camaleón Golf Club.

Barber looks to parlay a T39 at last week's Sanderson Farms Championship into another payday south of the border. His first trip to Playa del Carmen resulted in a T9 and was only held up by a poor third round where he posted a 1-over 72. With good course vibes and decent form entering the week, gamers should give Barber a deep look when searching for sleepers.

Blayne Barber brings 29 PGA TOUR events worth of experience into this week's Frys.com Open.

The Auburn Tiger is still getting his feet wet in terms of PGA TOUR experience, but a 12-for-26 rookie campaign that included four top 10s is nothing to sneeze at. It wasn't quite good enough to crack the FedExCup Playoffs, finishing at 145th in the standings. On the bright side, his top-heavy finishes earned him a TOUR card by finishing 121st on the money list. Barber is one of the top young talents in the game and should be monitored closely moving forward.

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.

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.
