Overnight co-leader Greg Chalmers chased his opening 68 at the Valspar Championship with a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in the second round.
Chalmers hit only nine greens in regulation today -- he's found only 17 through 36 holes -- but couldn't recover as well as Thursday. He squared four bogeys to cancel out three birdies. All of the par breakers dropped in from outside 10 feet, the longest measuring 17'9" at the par-5 14th hole. At 2-under 140, he's still only one stroke off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. Mar 14 - 2:45 PM

Greg Chalmers signed for a 3-under-par 35-33=68 following his opening round of the Valspar Championship, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

The lefty arrived at Copperhead having missed his last three cuts, so he was due for a return to our consciousness. Chalmers found only eight greens in regulation but limited the damage to two bogeys while circling five birdies. His par breakers included a pair of hole-outs from the rough, first from six yards away at the par-3 fourth hole, and then again from 20 yards at the par-4 sixth. His longest conventional conversion disappeared for birdie from 19'1" at 12. He also rolled in a par save from 12 feet at 15.
Mar 13 - 7:01 PM

Greg Chalmers signed for an even-par 36-35=71 following his third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Whatever he had in the first two rounds was not in the bag today. He hit 12 greens but canceled three birdies with three bogeys to post 10-under 203. That's five strokes off the 54-hole overnight lead. Chalmers' only notable conversion was for birdie from 12'2" at the par-5 13th. He still leads the tournament with a strokes gained-putting clip of 2.588 per round, so he'll need more of that magic on Sunday if he's going to make a run at his first PGA TOUR title. Entering the week, he's survived 203 cuts in 340 starts, two of which resulting in a second-place finish.

Greg Chalmers chased his opening 65 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to post 10-under 142 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The first round concluded this morning but the Aussie went off as scheduled for his second walk around TPC Scottsdale. If Thursday's 73'8" birdie conversion (at the sixth hole) and an eagle-2 at the drivable, par-4 17th didn't impress you, consider that he rolled in six putts today from outside 10 feet today. The first dropped for par from 14'3" at the par-4 10th where he opened the round. Chalmers then buried six birdies, five of which from long range, including gems of 37'4", 21'10" and 29'6" at Nos. 12, 16 and 8, respectively. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting measurement for the round sat north of 4.685.

Greg Chalmers enjoyed a 6-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Since opening the season with a pair of top 15s, the Aussie is 2-for-3 with no top 50s. Today's round could serve as a return to form as he landed 14 greens in regulation and absorbed a lone bogey at the par-3 16th hole. After rolling in a birdie from 13'6" to begin the show at the par-4 first, Chalmers buried his attempt from 73'8" at the sixth. Entering the day, he authored the longest conversion by anyone on the PGA TOUR this season, with a 74-footer at the sixth hole on Seaside during his second round of The McGladrey Classic. The lefty then added an eagle-2 at the 17th hole at TPC Scottsdale today; he drove to 6'10". He's one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
Jan 30 - 7:03 PM

Greg Chalmers reached the halfway point of the Sony Open in Hawaii in 6-under-par 68-66=134 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The lefty tied for fifth in his third appearance at Waialae, but he's gone 0-for-4 since. Thus far this week, he's landed 27 greens in regulation and erased one bogey in each round with a total of eight birdies. Of today's set of five, three disappeared from outside 15 feet, the longest of which measuring 20'8" at the par-4 16th hole. Chalmers has played 338 PGA TOUR events without notching a victory.
Jan 10 - 9:49 PM

Greg Chalmers has already teed it up in three events counting towards the 2013-14 PGA TOUR schedule and ranks 46th in the FedExCup standings.

The Snake tied for 15th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and then shared 10th a few weeks later at The McGladrey Classic. He then tied for 60th at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. Worth noting, he ranked first on TOUR in strokes gained-putting in 2013 and sits fourth in that metric in 2013-14.

Greg Chalmers torched Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course for a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of The McGladrey Classic, and is the first in the clubhouse at 8-under 272.

The Aussie circled seven birdies and didn't incur a blemish in his final round until the 18th hole, missing just one fairway and gaining over four strokes with the flat stick at the time of his posting. In his only other start this season, he tied for 15th at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. While it seems nearly impossible that his score will hold up for a win, he is certainly off and running in 2013-14.

Greg Chalmers prepares for his first taste of the Seaside Course in The McGladrey Classic.

The Aussie is obviously fully committed to his PGA TOUR success, as some of the biggest tournaments of the season are currently taking place in his home country. He tied for 15th at TPC Summerlin in his first and only start of the new season.

Greg Chalmers turned in a final-round 3-over-par 37-37=74 at The Barclays, but his 2-under 282 for the week allows him to advance to the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs.

The Aussie entered the week 122nd in the FEC standings, needing a solid week to advance. He did enough, and is safely inside the top 100 and currently projected at 94th. His final round included six bogeys to just three birdies.

Greg Chalmers returns to The Barclays after missing the cut in 2009 at Liberty National Golf Club.

The 2009 edition was the only one contested at the current venue, so even by playing Liberty National in the past Chalmers might have a slight edge on the competition. At 122nd in the FedExCup standings, he will need any and every advantage he can muster. He must have a strong showing if he hopes to move on to TPC Boston next week.

Greg Chalmers tacked on five points in his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open to hit 18 at the midpoint, four short of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Chalmers' scorecard reads even-par 40-32=72 today, but the five bogeys he squared were matched by five birdies to prove the attraction of the Modified Stableford scoring system. The Aussie holed all of his par breakers on his inward nine. In fact, he's dropped 11 of his 12 birdies for the week on holes 10-18 at Montreux.

Greg Chalmers scored 13 points in his opening round of the Reno-Tahoe Open, finishing one point off the clubhouse lead.

The Aussie started on the back side of Montreux today and promptly birdied his first five holes to hit double digits in a hurry. He added two birdies before dropping one point with a bogey at the par-4 fifth hole. He's 118th in FedExCup points but hasn't logged a top-35 finish in his last 15 starts.

Greg Chalmers posted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and improved to 8-under 208 for the tournament.

Chalmers entered his week at Glen Abbey ranked 122nd in the FedExCup standings, and is far from a lock for a Playoff spot and a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card. Simply put, every point is precious. He managed six birdies and a bogey on Saturday, despite splitting just five of 14 fairways and landing 12 GIR. As has been the case many times in his career, the flat stick propped him up. He gained well over two strokes on the field with the putter.

Greg Chalmers makes his 17th start of the season at AT&T National.

Chalmers tied for 17th in this event last year at Congressional. He’s a bit of a carbon copy of Stephen Ames when it comes to the stats. Chalmers handed over the top spot in strokes gained putting to Ames last week, dropping to third. The Aussie is similarly bad in ball-striking, ranking 173rd.
