Blayne Barber shot a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii and finished four strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.
The rookie went 5-for-15 in birdie chances, picking off four of them on his outward nine. That included a round-long 13'2" on the par-4 first hole. His only par breaker coming in occurred at the par-5 18th from 12'9". Today's aggregate matches his career low on the PGA TOUR. Sure, it's only his ninth start on the circuit, but it's better than the alternative. Jan 15 - 6:02 PM

Blayne Barber is off and running during his rookie season, closing out the Fall Series ranked 54th in the FedExCup standings.

The Auburn product was 3-for-5 overall this fall. The rookie saved the best for last as he closed out with a pair of T9 finishes. Barber has immense talent, finishing 7th on the 2014 Tour money list to secure his PGA TOUR card. His only downfall in the past has been signing the wrong scorecards. Gamers should keep him on their breakout radar this year and wish him a happy birthday as he turns 25 years old tomorrow.

Blayne Barber carded a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and is inside the top 15 at the time of his posting.

Barber's round featured two big highlights. He found the green in two on the par-5 fifth and par-5 13th holes and converted his eagle putts on both occasions. He traded one birdie for one bogey the rest of the way at El Camaleón Golf Club. He ends the tournament at 11-under 273. On the heels of a tie for ninth last week, the Auburn product hit is stride just in time for the first Tour reshuffle.

Blayne Barner answered his opening 66 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's second round to post 8-under 134.

He's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but it could have been worse. Barber split only six (of 14) fairways and found just 10 greens in regulation today. And while he squared three bogeys late in the round, he rallied for six birdies to overcompensate.

Blayne Barber hung up a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, finishing one stroke adrift of the sixsome sharing the overnight lead.

Barber was the last of 14 golfers to shoot 66 This means that 20 are within one shot of the lead entering Friday's second round. Fresh off a career-best T9 at the Sanderson Farms Championship, the rookie traded six birdies with one bogey at El Camaleón Golf Club today. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation. The way he's swinging it, don't be surprised if he piles on come morning.

Blayne Barber fired a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to hang an early number in the clubhouse at 10-under 278.

The rookie's lap around the Country Club of Jackson featured eight birdies to just two bogeys. Four of those birdies fell from longer than 12 feet, as the flat stick picked him up over three strokes on the day. He sat inside the top 10 at the time of his posting. This will easily eclipse his T24 in the 2013 Puerto Rico Open for the best finish of his young career.

Blayne Barber posted a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round of the Open to finish the tournament at 4-under 284.

While Barber's work this week is hardly worthy of a headline, it does represent a nice start to his rookie campaign. Considering he is subject to the Tour reshuffle, any FedExCup point earned is a good thing. He circled five birdies and squared three bogeys on his final navigation of Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course, with 13'6" and 17'9" birdies on the par-4 12th and 14th holes standing out as the highlights.

Blayne Barber earned his PGA TOUR card for the 2014-15 season by earning a win and securing five other top 10s on the Tour.

The running joke with Barber is that he has a tendency to sign incorrect scorecards, thus disqualifying himself from competition. The first instance came in the 2012 PGA TOUR Q School. He successfully navigated the first stage, but disqualified himself well after the tournament due to uncertainty surrounding a possible penalty in a bunker. His brother was on his bag that week. His wife was his caddie when he was disqualified at the Brasil Champions early in 2014. Perhaps the lesson is that he needs a veteran caddie on his seemingly lucrative bag to make sure he handles the details correctly. His talent is unmistakable.

Blayne Barber spun a 7-under-par 32-31=63 in the opening round of the Stonbrae Classic to share the 18-hole lead.

Barber picked up six birdies and an eagle on his lap around TPC Stonebrae, surrenduring just one bogey. He split 11 of 13 fairways, as there are five par 5s, and landed 13 GIR. He is chasing his second Tour win of the season.

Blayne Barber fired a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am to share the 54-hole lead with Ryan Blaum and Matt Davidson at 14-under 201.

Barber took advantage of The Reserve at Lake Keowee on Saturday, picking up seven birdies while handing back three bogeys. He's looking to win for the second time in as many Tour starts, claiming the South Georgia Classic two weeks ago before the Tour enjoyed an off week. The biggest concern for Barber fans is his second-round 1-under 70 at Thornblade Club on Friday. The host venue seemed to present more challenges to him than most on his first navigation.

Blayne Barber fired a 9-under-par 32-31=63 in the opening round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am to take a one-stroke lead over Dawi van der Walt.

Barber is making his first appearance since winning the South Georgia Classic two weeks ago, and there clearly isn't any hangover. He circled 10 birdies to just one bogey on his lap around Green Valley CC. This is Green Valley's first year in the BMW three-course rotation. Players had to deal with a four-hour rain delay before play was underway. While there are still several players stranded on the course at day's end, none stand a chance at catching Barber. He will turn his attention to the host course, Thornblade Club, in Friday's second round.

Blayne Barber fired a final-round 5-under-par 33-34=67 at the South Georgia Classic to claim the first Tour title of his career.

Barber has spent his share of time in the headlines in his young professional career, but generally for high-profile disqualifications of the self-inflicted variety. That changes now, as his 15-under 273 placed him two strokes clear of Alex Prugh and all but guarantees the Auburn product of a PGA TOUR card for 2014-15. His day featured seven birdies, with one double bogey marring his scorecard. He entered the week having made five of his six cuts, with four of those going for top-25 finishes.

Blayne Barber spun a 4-under-par 36-31=67 in the second round of the News Sentinel Open and shares the 36-hole lead with Richard Scott at 9-under 133.

Barber circled six birdies and gave back two bogeys on his jaunt around Fox Den Country Club, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and landing 14 GIR for the second consecutive round. Perhaps his biggest fear isn't making bogeys, rather looking over the scorecard at round's end. He famously disqualified himself from Q School after a questionable penalty in 2012, then signed an incorrect scorecard at the Mylan Classic following the second round while he was in contention. Assuming he can navigate that minefield the next two round, he could find himself in the Tour playoffs for a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.

Blayne Barber became somewhat famous for disqualifying himself following the first stage of PGA TOUR Q School last fall, and he has repeated the trick while contending at the Mylan Classic on the Tour this week.

Barber appeared to be in a tie for second after posting a 6-under-par 65 in the second round, but in actuality he shot a 66. The discrepancy came when he signed for a birdie on the par-4 16th rather than a par. After the round, Barber commented, "I looked (the card) over and didn't see it ... Somehow I missed that one on 16." He had only made one cut in four starts on the Tour this season and a big finish could have boosted him inside the top 75 on the money list, earning him entry into the four-tournament playoff for a PGA TOUR card and full status for the 2014 Tour as a backup plan. At this time, the young pro seems snakebit. Every time he takes a big step towards PGA TOUR or Tour status, he finds a way to shoot himself in the foot.

Blayne Barber grabbed the clubhouse lead in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open thanks to a third-round 6-under-par 33-33=66, improving him to 14-under 202.

The possible feel-good story in the making circled birdies on three of his final four holes to burst ahead of a pack of players hanging around 12-under. In all, Barber circled seven birdies and squared just one bogey in his lap around Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Sufficed to say, he's making the most of his sponsor exemption into the field this week.
