Tim Clark was defeated by Bubba Watson on the only hole of sudden death at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.
Talk about an eclectic leaderboard. Sporting new teeth this year in the form of longer rough and new bunkers, Sheshan International boasted a range of talent and didn't discriminate against a bunter like Clark. He secured a spot in the playoff with a birdie-4 at the 18th hole. It was his seventh consecutive birdie on a par 5 and 11th of the week on the set of four. After signing his card at 11-under 69-70-69-69=277, the South African found the fairway with his drive and lay-up at the closing hole in the playoff. His third found the green short and right of the hole. With eventual champion Bubba Watson also laying three but just inside Clark's ball, Clark's run at birdie stopped short but in the jaws. He tapped in for par, but Watson rolled in a long birdie for the win. This is Clark's first top five in 27 starts in the WGC series. It also extends his dubious streak of registering at least one runner-up finish in every season since 2005. Nov 9 - 3:17 AM

Tim Clark added a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his third round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to post 8-under 208 and sit two strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Clark remains a mild surprise on the leaderboard. Just like in Friday's 70, he squared two bogeys today, but he collected one more birdie and circled five on Saturday. Short of a victory at Sheshan International, the South African could establish a personal best in WGCs. In 18 starts in the stroke-play versions, he has just one top 10, that a T6 at the 2007 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Tim Clark added a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions and posted 5-under 139 at the break, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After converting seven birdies on Thursday, the South African holed only four today, but he also trimmed his bogey output from four to two to keep pace. Few stats are available at Sheshan International Golf Club, and what is relayed isn't done in real time. If they were, we'd have shared that Clark hit 12 greens in regulation in the opening round, so he maximized on his scoring opportunities.
Nov 7 - 1:11 AM

Tim Clark poured in seven birdies en route to a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

Clark has picked off only one top-35 finish since emerging with victory in Canada in late July, so he's a mild surprise early on in Shanghai. After a par at the par-4 first hole, he connected birdies at 2, 3 and 4 to set the tone. A foursome of bogey-5s spoiled the day a bit, but he's only two shots back of clubhouse leader Graeme McDowell.
Nov 6 - 2:28 AM

Tim Clark submitted a 4-under-par 31-36=67 for his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Clark opened the season with a T57 at last week's Open, but he's poised to improve on that considerably. At 7-under 135, he's just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead in Las Vegas. Today's walk around TPC Summerlin was highlighted by an eagle from 161 yards at the par-4 18th hole. He flew his approach into the hole. (You can view the vid by clicking on the link below.) The South African also circled four birdies, the longest measuring 27'10" at the par-4 10th where he opened his round. He also saved par from 10-and-a-half feet at 13.
Oct 17 - 8:09 PM

Tim Clark posted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Open to grab a piece of the clubhouse lead.

The South African enjoyed one of the more electrifying starts to a season. He opened with a par save from 14'5" at the par-4 10th hole. After missing the green just short at the par-3 11th, he poured in his birdie attempt from seven yards to dip into red numbers. Clark then short-sided his approach into a greenside bunker at the par-4 12th, but blasted out and in for birdie from 12 yards away. His only miscue on the card was a bogey-5 at No. 13. While that's impressive on its own, consider that he missed eight green in regulation during his walk around Silverado.
Oct 9 - 3:41 PM

The opening round of the BMW Championship was suspended at 5:50 p.m. MT due to inclement weather in the area.

Conditions on site were dry, but a storm cell was encroaching from the southwest. The horn blew just after Tim Clark struck his approach into the green at the par-4 18th where he was to conclude his round. He's 1-over-par with four birdies, three bogeys and a double. His longest conversion disappeared from 20'9" at the par-3 sixth hole. Only nine golfers were stranded at the time of the delay. Play is scheduled to resume at 11:00 a.m. on Friday.
Sep 4 - 7:57 PM

Tim Clark has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship due to an elbow injury.

He had to call it quits at the turn of his second round of The Barclays with the same problem. At 38th in the FedExCup standings, Clark will advance to next week's BMW Championship, but the more relevant concern for gamers is his health long-term. Needless to say, if he plays at Cherry Hills, let him go it alone.
Aug 28 - 1:54 PM

Tim Clark withdrew during his second round of The Barclays due to an elbow injury.

Clark opened on the first hole at Ridgewood Country Club this morning and reached the turn in 5-over-par 40. Added to his opening 76 during which he went 0-for-9 in birdie opportunities, he completed 27 holes in 10-over. Clark started the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 29th in points, so he'll advance to next week's Deutsche Bank Championship. Because the stop outside Boston is scheduled to begin on Friday, the South African will get an additional day to rest and recover. Unfortunately, he's quite familiar with having elbow issues (and surgery).

Tim Clark bombarded the back nine at Royal Montreal Golf Club's Blue Course en route to a 5-under-par 35-30=65 and earn a one-shot victory over Jim Furyk at the RBC Canadian Open.

Playing in the final threesome, Clark shook out the nerves early as he bogeyed the par-4 first before playing the remainder blemish-free 6-under. He converted five of his birdies on his inward side, including rolls of 24'8", 10 feet and 14'9" at Nos. 11, 15 and 17, respectively. The South African stepped onto the 18th tee box with a one-shot lead over Jim Furyk and stuck to his rep as a fairways-and-green specialist, allowing him a two-putt for the win at 17-under 263. In typical Clark fashion, he led the field in fairways hits this week (47 of 56) and landed 52 greens in regulation. This is his second career victory on the PGA TOUR. It exempts him into this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship in two weeks.
Jul 27 - 3:45 PM

Tim Clark torched Royal Montreal with a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 to grab the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 12-under 198.

Clark started off the round the right way with a 12'8" birdie roll on the first and holing out for eagle from 50 yards on the par-4 second. The South African had all facets of the game working today, hitting 12 (of 14) fairways, leading the field in proximity to hole, and walking off the 18th green with a strokes gained-putting of 1.854 for the round. Clark will make an attempt at his second career PGA TOUR victory tomorrow.
Jul 26 - 4:59 PM

Tim Clark completed 36 holes of the RBC Canadian Open in 6-under-par 67-67=134 and sits four strokes off the clubhouse lead at the midpoint.

The South African had a week off following a T5 at the John Deere Classic, but he's picked up where he left off in the Quad Cities. After going bogey-free on Thursday at Royal Montreal, he opened today's loop at the 10th hole and promtply birdie the first three holes. His roll from 15'7" at the par-4 11th served as his longest conversion of the day. Clark added a birdie-2 at 17, which would help offset a bogey at the par-4 third, but that square is his only blemish thus far. He's 8-for-9 in scrambling.
Jul 25 - 5:56 PM

Tim Clark posted a 4-under-par 32-35=68 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to secure a top five at 18-under 266.

Clark made a serious run early, circling four birdies on his first seven holes, before dropping a shot on the par-4 ninth. The back nine at TPC Deere Run was a little less friendly, yielding a lone birdie at the par-3 16th. While his highlight was easily the 40'8" birdie at the par-4 first, he also dropped putts from 11'2" on the par-3 third and 23'6" on the par-4 sixth to arouse applause. He landed 15 GIR on the afternoon.
Jul 13 - 5:48 PM

Tim Clark conjured up a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in his third round of the John Deere Classic and enters the finale at 14-under 199.

Clark picked up two birdies on the front nine at TPC Deere Run, before scorching the back with five more. His 14'7" birdie at the par-5 10th was easily the highlight. A previous runner-up at this stop, he hit every fairway and every GIR in the third round. His last bogey came on his final hole in round one, making him blemish-free for his last 36 holes. He'll try and go low in Sunday's final round in an effort to pick up just his second PGA TOUR title.
Jul 12 - 5:15 PM

Tim Clark torched TPC Deere Run for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

When you open birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie as the South African did today, you expect to take it deep. So, props to Clark for making that run count. He hit 14 greens in regulation and total eight birdies, the longest measuring 17'2" and 36'8" at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. At 7-under 135, he's strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
