Peter Malnati has qualified on merit for this week's Barbasol Championship.
Not too shabby given he doesn't have PGA TOUR status after finishing 178th in the FedExCup as a rookie last season. However, after all of the Past Champions and Veterans Members are invited to plug a hole, those who placed 151st-200th in FedExCup points from the previous season fall in line. As a result, Malnati was no higher than 22nd alternate when this week's field was established, yet he might be licking his chops given his form. The 28-year-old is second in earnings on the Tour and headed back to the big leagues, anyway. He's coming off a T7 in Boise where he spun a 62 in the second round. Jul 13 - 11:13 PM

Peter Malnati increased his lead at the Rust-Oleum Championship to two strokes with a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round.

Malnati's first 54 holes at Lakewood Country Club add up to a 15-under 198. Perhaps the most impressive accomplishment of his first three rounds has been his ability to limit the blemishes to a single bogey, to go with 16 birdies. For the tournament, he's a perfect two-for-two out of the sand and ranks inside the top six in GIR and putting average. He will try and slam the door on his second Tour win of the season in Sunday's finale.

Peter Malnati carded a 4-under-par 36-31=67 in the second round of the Rust-Oleum Championship and emerged with a one-stroke lead at 11-under 131.

Malnati finished his second lap around Lakewood Country Club on Saturday morning, after storms on Friday afternoon delayed the conclusion. The round featured five birdies to just one bogey, his only blemish of the week, as he landed 15 GIR. Already a winner in 2015 and sitting in second place on the Tour money list, he would improve to first with a win this week. It would take three wins during the Tour season for him to advance to the PGA TOUR before the start of the 2015-16 season.

Overnight co-leader Peter Malnati chased his opening 65 at the Tour's El Bosque Mexico Championship with a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in today's second round to post 11-under 133, good for a share of the 36-hole lead.

Once again, Malnati pounced on holes 1-13 at El Bosque Golf Club today. After going bogey-free 8-under on them on Thursday, he scored bogey-free 4-under today, albeit playing them in succession. (He opened the tournament on the par-5 10th.) He traded two birdies with two bogeys coming in before landing beside Casey Wittenberg at the conclusion of the day yet again. Malnati co-leads the field with 15 birdies, six of which he's converted on the set of four par 5s.

Peter Malnati rode nine birdies to a 7-under-par 35-30=65 in today's opening round of the El Bosque Mexico Championship, good for a share of the overnight lead.

Malnati is on a mission to get back to the PGA TOUR after a dreadful rookie season in 2013-14. He's already a winner on the Tour this season and leads the circuit in earnings. Today at El Bosque Golf Club, he squared only two bogeys and picked off six of his par breakers on his inward side, holes 1-9 on the course. Should he parlay this strong start into another win, the 27-year-old would need one more for an automatic promotion. That's a long way off, but he demands your attention both in the short- and long-term.

Peter Malnati fired a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Brasil Champions to earn the second Tour win of his career at 22-under 262.

Malnati finished four shots ahead of a seven-way tie for second place. His round featured nine birdies and four bogeys at Sao Paulo Golf Club. He was streaky to say the least, circling four consecutive birdies beginning with the third hole and ending his round with birdies on the 16th, 17th and 18th holes. With this victory, he moves to second on the Tour money list and has virtually assured himself of a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card. He was a rookie on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14.
Mar 15 - 2:15 PM

Peter Malnati returned Saturday morning to polish off a bogey-free 9-under-par 29-33-62 in the second round of the Brasil Champions to take the 36-hole lead at 14-under 128.

His round featured nine birdies and nine pars, with a streak of four birdies in succession beginning on the second hole highlighting his efforts at Sao Paulo Golf Club. He ended his round with back-to-back birdies. Malnati was a rookie on the PGA TOUR last season, but made just five of 18 cuts and did not retain his card. He's made two of his three Tour cuts this season, with a T40 at the Panama Claro Championship the best. His lone Tour win came at the 2013 News Sentinel Open.
Mar 14 - 10:08 AM

Peter Malnati is set to make his debut at Sedgefield Country Club this week in the Wyndham Championship.

Malnati enters the week with missed cuts in nine of his last 10 events. The rookie has cuts made in just four events during in inaugural campaign. Sitting with 166 FedExCup points, ranked 178th in the standings, Malnati is an extreme longshot to make the Playoffs, and can generally be avoided by all gamers this week.

Peter Malnati turns his attention to TPC Deere Run this week as his makes his John Deere Classic debut.

The PGA TOUR rookie has been hit or miss this year, with 10 missed cuts in 14 events, but three of his cuts made have turned into top 20s. Malnati currently ranks 68th in birdie or better conversion percentage as he breaks par 29.78% of the time he hits a green in regulation. With large greens and a weak field this week, look for this skill to be very useful. Consider Malnati an off the radar sleeper that should only be used in the deepest of formats.

Peter Malnati settled for an even-par 33-37=70 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to remain at 7-under 203.

The rookie started hot, with a pair of birdies including a 46'10" chip-in on the par-3 eight, but struggled on the back nine. For the second consecutive round, he posted a 2-over 37 without a birdie on TPC Southwind's back nine. His goal for the afternoon should be to score his best PGA TOUR finish, with a T14 in Puerto Rico the mark.

Peter Malnati answered his opening 65 of the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in his second round.

The rookie opened birdie-birdie-birdie, so it's a mild upset that he didn't score better overall. In fact, he circled the last of his five birdies when an attempt from 16 feet disappeared at the par-3 eighth hole. That complemented a conversion from 22'2" at 2 and a par save from 12'3" at No. 4. Malnati played the last 10 in 2-over with two bogeys that trailed a bogey-5 at the fifth. But he's in terrific position entering the third round. At 7-under 133, he's just five strokes off Ben Crane's 36-hole lead.

Peter Malnati opened his debut at the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 5-under-par 32-33=65, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Malnati completed his lid-lifter after play resumed at approximately 4:45 p.m. CT after a two-and-a-half hour weather delay. He went 6-for-7 in scrambling and dropped six birdies, three of which from outside 12 feet. This matches his career-low aggregate on the PGA TOUR (final round, Mayakoba), but this is just his 12th career start, all in 2013-14. The rookie will go in the books as the low man among today's early draw, and the afternoon wave won't complete its first 18 holes until Friday at the soonest as the last threesomes went off at 5:30 p.m. CT and sunset is at 8:10 p.m.

Peter Malnati returns to his home state to make his debut at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The PGA TOUR rookie resides just outside of Knoxville, Tennessee, and may consider this week a home game. His lone Tour victory took place at the News Sentinel Open, played in Knoxville, backing up the theory that he would be comfortable on Tennessee golf courses. DFS gamers should take notice and consider Malnati when combing through the bargain bin.

Peter Malnati's rookie season weaves its way to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana.

The Tour grad is a respectable 163rd in the FedExCup standings bagging a pair of top-15 finishes in his three paydays spread across eight starts. Considering his three made cuts came at Puerto Rico, Mayakoba and Hawaii, it seems there is something about tropical locations that suit his eye. While New Orleans is eclectic to say the least, it may not qualify as tropical. Of course, compared to his native Indiana just about anything is exotic.

Peter Malnati turns his attention to TPC San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open.

The rookie has made each of his seven career PGA TOUR starts during the 2013-14 season, making three cuts and cracking the top 15 twice. His most recent start was a T15 at the Puerto Rico Open. He was unable to gain entry into the Valspar Championship or the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Rather than let his form die on the vine, he decided to play the Panama Claro Championship on the Tour last week, but missed the cut.
