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. Jan 21 - 6:09 PM

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.

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.

Blayne Barber carded a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and posted 17-under 271, currently tied eighth on the tightly-packed leaderboard.

Barber started the final round at 15-under (T3) and just one shot back of the 54-hole leaders. With premium scoring conditions and lift, clean and place in effect, the 25-year-old was not able to keep pace with the pack, circling five birdies against one bogey and a costly double bogey-5 at the par-3 17th, finding the water off the tee. Barber's career (and season) best on TOUR are a pair of T9s back in November.

Blayne Barber spun a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-33=64 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 15-under 201, good for the early clubhouse lead.

Barber started round three at 7-under (T23) and five shots off the 36-hole lead. He circled eight birdies in a spotless round to vault up the leaderboard. After a routine par on No. 1, he chipped in for his first par breaker on the par-5 second from six yards right of the hole. He added four more birdies on the front including three straight on Nos. 7, 8 and 9. The 35-year-old added three more birdies on the back on 12, 17 and 18. Barber hit 11 (of 14) fairways, 13 greens in regulation and required just 23 putts.

The third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was suspended for fog at 7:53 a.m. CT. Players are being held in place. UPDATE: Play resumed at 7:59 a.m.

Well, that didn't last long. The resumption of the already-delayed third round began at 7:30 a.m. and lasted a grand total of 23 minutes prior to it being halted. Blayne Barber began the third round at 7-under-par (T23) and five shots off the pace. He is currently 6-under on the day and had completed 13 holes when the horn sounded.

Blayne Barber shot 5-under-par 36-31=67 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The rookie has been quiet since the PGA TOUR moved east eight weeks ago, but he's still 104th in the FedExCup standings, which is better than the alternative as he navigates the schedule for the first time. 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. At last check, Barber ranked fourth in the field with a strokes gained: putting clip of 2.995.
