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. Nov 21 - 9:58 AM

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.

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.
Feb 26 - 6:27 PM

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.
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.
