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. Dec 16 - 7:00 PM

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.
Sep 6 - 6:49 PM

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.
Jul 25 - 5:20 PM

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.

Overnight leader Greg Chalmers followed his opening 66 at the Quicken Loans National with a 7-over-par 39-39=78 to post 2-over 144 at the midpoint.

Enter Exhibit Nth to the theory that all that matters is when you add up all of the strokes at the end of the week. Chalmers opened with a birdie conversion from 17'2" at the par-4 first hole, but it was his only highlight of the round. He'd go on to swallowed seven bogeys and a double to wipe away a total of two birdies. He hit only eight greens in regulation.

Greg Chalmers opened the Quicken Loans National with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 to snare outright possession of the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: He leads by one entering the second round.

The lefty went out in the last threesome off the 10th tee in today's morning wave. He wasted no time in breaking par with a 7'7" birdie conversion at the par-3 opener. Chalmers chased it with five more, including a round-long 20'6" at the par-5 16th and walk-off birdies at 7, 8 and 9. He added a par save from 11'11" at the par-4 third. While he missed six greens in regulation, his only miscue occurred at the par-3 second where he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker and squared a bogey. The Aussie arrived in Bethesda, Maryland ranked 126th in FedExCup points and 123d in earnings, so every swing right now is potentially critical to his status in 2014-15.

Greg Chalmers enters the Travelers Championship ranked 124th in the FedExCup standings.

The Aussie has made 11 of 20 cuts, spreading four top 25s and a top 10 across his returns. He'll likely need a few more top 25s or a top 10 if he is to crack the field at The Barclays to kick off the FEC Playoffs. Despite 11 looks at TPC River Highlands, he's made just four of 11 cuts with a T19 in 2009 easily standing as the highlight.

Greg Chalmers put on a short-game clinic on his way to a 5-under 31-34=65 and the clubhouse lead after 54 holes at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Chalmers is no stranger to great putting rounds, but the third-round 3.992 strokes gained-putting mark at the time of his signing is remarkable, even by his lofty standards. Hole-outs from off the green at the par-4 first and par-4 ninth holes set the stage for his lengthy birdie putts of 19'11" and 14'1" on the par-4 11th and par-3 17th holes, respectively. Chalmers sits at 7-under 203 after 54 holes and will have a chance on Sunday to post his best finish of the season.
May 17 - 4:19 PM

Greg Chalmers signed for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 following his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

He called it quits after one round at Harbour Town last week due to a back injury, so it's comforting to see him ready to play again. We'll even embrace the under-par score. He hit 12 greens and buried three birdies, but his longest conversion of the day dropped for par at the par-5 18th, his ninth of the loop around TPC Louisiana. The lefty found water off the tee, took a drop and eventually rolled in his save from 20'1".

Greg Chalmers is listed in the published field of next week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Assuming he's good to go, he'll be returning from a back injury that forced him to withdraw from this week's RBC Heritage during the opening round. Oddly enough, Chalmers had to call it quits during his second round of last year's stop at Harbour Town due to an injury to his left hand. Those WDs account for two-thirds of his career total in 349 PGA TOUR appearances. He's cashed in all five tries at TPC Louisiana, including top 10s in 2010 and 2011. The lefty also shares the course record with a 64 in his second round in 2012.
