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.

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 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.

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 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.
