Blayne Barber got off to a quick start in round one of The RSM Classic and held on for a 5-under-par 31-36=67 at Sea Island Golf Club's Plantation Course, good for an early share of eighth place.

The Auburn product played his way into a playoff here last year and he's right back in the mix after day one. Barber was striking the ball well all day as he pelted 16 greens in regulation. He converted five early scoring chances to reach 5-under thru 8. He backpedaled a bit with a three-putt bogey at the 10th and another bogey at the 14th, but recovered nicely with birdies at the par-5 16th and 18th holes. After the round, he cited his love of bermudagrass and familiarity with the course from his playing days back at Auburn.

Blayne Barber returns to El Camaleón Golf Club for his third appearance at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Barber finished T9 at this event back in 2014 (2015 edition). It was his tournament debut but he took a quick liking to the short track. He returned the next year only to be derailed by an opening-round 77. After a year in timeout, he's decided to give this course another shot. Barber arrives with missed cuts in six of his last 10 starts but does have a solo 15th (Barbasol Championship) during that stretch. The Auburn product continues to carry the tag of an underachiever based on his pedigree, but a short course like this weeks could certainly be a prime landing spot for the site of his first PGA TOUR victory.

World No. 247 Blayne Barber checks in for his third Barbasol Championship at 119th in the FedExCup standings.

The Auburn alum and Auburn, Alabama, resident will sleep in his own bed as he does battle in his third Barbasol. He cashed a T10 in the inaugural in 2015 (69-67-68-68) and T47 last year (66-69-70-71). The 27-year-old is just 9-for-20 on the season with two top 25s and one top 10, a career-best P2 at The RSM Classic back in November. He limps in off four straight missed cuts which followed his other top-25 finish, a T16 at THE PLAYERS.

World No. 231 Blayne Barber gets his first look at TPC Sawgrass and checks in for THE PLAYERS at 101st in the FedExCup standings.

The 27-year-old is playing his third straight season on TOUR and owns six top 10s in 71 career events. He finished last year 101st in FEC points and is 8-for-15 so far in 2016-17 with one top 25, a career-best P2 at The RSM Classic back in November. The Auburn alum chased the playoff loss with four consecutive missed cuts before connecting six paydays, one of those inside the top 40 (T26, RBC Heritage). He checks in off a MC at the Zurich Classic two weeks ago while teamed with Russell Henley. The Florida native ranks 143rd on TOUR in SG: Tee-to-Green (-.305) but 24th in SG: Putting (.528).

Alternate and World No. 245 Blayne Barber signed for a 3-under-par 32-37=69 after the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to conclude his third appearance on 5-over 293, up 10 places to T62 with play still in progress.

The 27-year-old was the only alternate to crack the 120-man field, replacing World No. 14 Danny Willett who withdrew due to illness. He posted rounds of 75-72 to make the cut on the number, chasing with 77 to begin in last place of the 72 to survived the 36-hole trimming. The Tallahassee native's closing 69 is noteworthy on a sunny, yet breezy day at Bay Hill, currently only the third of 30 laps completed that were sub-70. For the week, he totaled 16 birdies, outbalanced by 15 bogeys and three doubles. Barber chased a career-best P2 at the RSM back in November with four missed cuts but has now cashed in three straight, though all outside the top 40.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 239 Blayne Barber fashioned a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Valspar Championship for a 36-hole total of 5-under 137, up 31 places to T9 with play still in progress.

This is the 27-year-old's third appearance and after opening with 70 (two birdies, one bogey), improves to 2-for-3. His best is T42 last year (71-72-75-70). The Tallahassee native is making his 10th start of the season and this will be just a third cash, joining T62 in last start two weeks ago at the Honda, and a career-best P2 at The RSM Classic. He circled four birdies at Nos. 10, 11, 14 and 5, all from between eight and 14 feet, on 10 (of 13) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.692 putts per GIR and 3.590 in SG: Putting, currently pacing the field in the latter with a cumulative 5.959.

Blayne Barber finished on the podium at the 2016 Honda Classic and returns this week for another crack at PGA National's Champion Course.

The Florida native posted a 58th-place finish in his 2015 debut at The Honda Classic. He took it up a notch in his second visit, posting four rounds at even-par 70 or better to find himself T23→T5→3→T3 after each round, respectively. That went in the books as his career-best finish at the time, although he bested it last fall when he lost in a playoff at The RSM Classic. Barber is still finding his legs on the PGA TOUR but this week presents a great opportunity for him to shine once again.

Blayne Barber returns to the site of his PGA TOUR debut as he readies for this week's Genesis Open.

The Auburn product finished T7 at the 2012 NCAA Championship held at Riviera Country Club. The following year he Monday qualified into this event, making it his first career start on the PGA TOUR. Barber finished T42 that year and returned two years later to post a T12. Last year he backpedaled with a missed cut but overall his memories are fond at this week's venue. More recently, Barber ended his fall schedule with a runner-up finish at The RSM Classic but has followed that up with three straight missed cuts since the start of 2017.

World No. 217 Blayne Barber returns for a second Waste Management Phoenix Open after a T45 last year on rounds of 68-71-68-76.

Buoyed by a career-low 63 in Round 1 at The RSM Classic, the Florida native ended the fall portion of the schedule with a career-best P2, losing in a 5-man playoff. He missed two (of three) cuts prior, cashing a T42 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms, and returned from the 6-week holiday break with MCs at the CareerBuilder and last week at the Farmers (by one) on rounds of 70-75. The 27-year-old ranks 23rd on TOUR in greens in regulation (75.49 percent) but 147th in scrambling (57.33 percent).

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.

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.
