He's missed the cut in the last two editions of the Travelers and hasn't placed inside the top 35 since 2009 (T19).

Greg Chalmers has been added to the published field of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

The Aussie was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Kevin Kisner withdrew. Just 165th on 6-for-8 this season due to conditional status, it's not terribly long ago that Chalmers went fourth-first in Australia to cap off 2014. However, he's winless in 370 starts on the PGA TOUR and hasn't finished inside the top 15 in 13 appearances at the Nelson.

Greg Chalmers has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The lefty was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Branden Grace withdrew. Chalmers is 6-for-7 on the PGA TOUR this season and sits 158th in the FedExCup standings, but it's been 11 months since his last top 25 on the circuit (T22, Byron Nelson). He's cashed in his last six trips to TPC Louisiana with top 10s in 2010 and 2011, so he may serve as a valuable complement in DFS formats this week.

A plethora of talent failed to qualify for The Honda Classic at the four-spotter at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, this week, including Greg Chalmers, who tied for 59th with a even-par 71, six strokes too high to join the playoff for a berth into the tournament proper.

This is a strange fortnight for the Aussie. He's been limited to five starts this season due to conditional status, but he's exempt into next week's WGC-Cadillac Championship via leading the Order of Merit on the PGA Tour of Australasia in 2014. Other notables that fell short at Mayacoo Lakes include: 66--Mark Hubbard; Whee Kim; Eric Axley; Peter Malnati; Marcel Siem ... 67--Sam Saunders; Jason Allred; Bubba Dickerson; Kyle Thompson ... 68--Trevor Immelman; Casey Wittenberg ... 69--Heath Slocum; Jonathan Byrd; Andrew Loupe; Will Wilcox; D.J. Trahan; Glen Day ... 70--Frank Lickliter II; Jeff Klauk; Brad Adamonis; Alexandre Rocha; Wes Roach ... 71--Josh Teater; Tommy Gainey; Kevin Tway ... 72--Jarrod Lyle; Chris Smith; James Driscoll; Darron Stiles; Mikko Ilonen; Alexander Levy ... 73--Oscar Fraustro ... 74--Scott Pinckney; Marc Turnesa; Guy Boros ... 77--Len Mattiace.

Greg Chalmers has been added to the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

The lefty started the week as the eighth alternate, and then gained entry when Graham DeLaet withdrew this morning. Chalmers has conditional status this season, but he'll be making his fourth start already. He cashed in his first three, all in the fall, but none went for a top 25. He's 4-for-11 at Torrey Pines with one top 30 (in 2002). If there's any reason to rally around the veteran, this will be his first action since he won the Australian PGA Championship in mid-December.

Greg Chalmers will look to parlay his victory Down Under into a successful 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

Chalmers outlasted fellow countryman Adam Scott to secure the Australian PGA Championship last weekend. The win will provide the lefty with some additional outlets to enter strong-field events like the WGC-Cadillac Championship. Meanwhile on the PGA TOUR, Chalmers lefty went 3-for-3 during the Fall Series, yielding a pair of top 30s along the way. Gamers will continue to lack trust in him week-to-week, but his smooth putting stroke always gives him a chance to contend.

With his victory at the Australian PGA Championship, Greg Chalmers finished atop the Order of Merit on the PGA Tour of Australasia to earn an exemption into the 2015 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

It took seven holes of a three-way playoff at RACV Royal Pines Resort, but the lefty outlasted Wade Ormsby (eliminated after three holes) and Adam Scott to clinch victory at the top spot in earnings. Chalmers didn't make his season debut on the circuit until the Perth International in late October. The money leader also earns exemption into The Open Championship, but Chalmers had already secured that with a solo fourth at the Australian Open two weeks ago. American golf fans can take for granted berths into the WGCs, but they are a big deal abroad, evidenced with Steven Jeffress securing the second of two on the table in the Order of Merit. On the strength of a win at the Fiji International in mid-August, the 39-year-old Aussie is also headed to Trump National Doral in early March. In his only start to date on the PGA TOUR, he missed the cut at the 2013 Open Championship.

For finishing a respective second, third and fourth at the Emirates Australian Open, Aussies Rod Pampling, Brett Rumford and Greg Chalmers punched tickets into the 2015 Open Championship.

Jordan Spieth ran away with the victory at The Australian Golf Club in Sydney, closing with a bogey-free, 31-32=63 to post 13-under 271, six clear of Pampling, who will be making his eighth start in the season's third major. It'll be his first since 2009. The top three not otherwise exempt earned tee times at St. Andrews in July. Rumford is just 1-for-4 with a T16 in 2006, while Chalmers has cashed in both of his tries, albeit 14 years apart (1998, 2012).

Greg Chalmers has been added to the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The lefty started the week as seventh alternate, but snuck in when Kevin Stadler withdrew and three others elected to withdraw as alternates. Chalmers will take it. Saddled with conditional status, this will be his third start of the season already, but playing time will come far and few between for a while after the holiday break. He's 2-for-2 both to start 2014-15 and at Mayakoba.

Greg Chalmers finished in a share of 30th in his home town at last week's ISPS HANDA Perth International and makes the short flight to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, for the CIMB Classic.

The world-renowned putter finished T16 in this 2012 CIMB Classic debut, but he'll have a new course to explore this time around. Playing with conditional status, the Aussie will need to bag some nice finishes to get back in the good graces in the world of statuses. Given the short length of the course, and geographic locale of the event, Chalmers could be a nice surprise come Sunday.

Greg Chalmers is the 54-hole leader by one stroke at the Chiquita Classic after a 5-under-par 33-34=67 catapulted him to 15-under 201.

The Aussie circled eight birdies and squared three bogeys on his navigation of River Run CC. Long known for being an elite putter but an average ball-striker at best, Chalmers has flipped the script this week. He ranks second in GIR at 77.8 percent but a distant 29th in putting average at 1.714 despite a 1.583 average on Saturday. He has enjoyed full status on the PGA TOUR without disruption since 2009, and would keep that streak alive in 2014-15 with a win on Sunday.

Greg Chalmers spun a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the Barracuda Championship to bag 10 points and up his total to 26 for the week.

Chalmers took advantage of the Modified Stableford scoring system with an eagle from nine feet on the par-5 18th to turn an average round into a very good one. Two of his three birdies were from between nine and 11 feet, which is not surprising from the man who ranks fourth on the PGA TOUR in strokes gained-putting. Entering the week 127th in the FedExCup standings, he has a chance to secure his full status for 2014-15 with a solid final round.

Greg Chalmers followed his opening 66 at the RBC Canadian Open with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round to post 6-under 134 at the midpoint, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Chalmers went 4-for-12 in birdie chances today, including a 14-footer at 14 and a conversion from 12'6" at 15, both par 4s. When he signed his card, he ranked sixth in strokes-gained putting through 36 hole at 2.133. This has always been the strength of his game, but he remains winless on the PGA TOUR. This week's stop in Canada is his 360th career start.

Greg Chalmers painted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 for his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, good for a share of the very early clubhouse lead.

The lefty went out in the second threesome off the 10th tee today and promptly rolled in a birdie from 22'6" on the par 4. He then poured in birdies from 20'10" and 25'3" at Nos. 15 and 16, respectively before making the turn in bogey-free 3-under. Chalmers circled two more birdies at 2 and 3 before finally giving one back with a bogey-5 at No. 4. Overall, he split only seven (of 14) fairways and hit just 12 greens in regulation, but at last check his strokes gained-putting split read 2.729.
