Prior to the start of the event, Greg Chalmers has withdrawn from this week's Travelers Championship. Shane Bertsch will take his spot in the field.
Chalmers ranks 165th in the FedExCup standings for the season. Given that rank, it's likely not by choice that he changed his mind this week. It's possible that a nagging injury popped up or even something personal. There is no injury cited at the moment but we will update if anything changes on that front. Weekly gamers should make sure they remove the Aussie from all lineups. Jun 20 - 7:45 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 464 Greg Chalmers painted a day-tying-low, 7-under-par 31-34=65 on Moving Day at the Houston Open to post 12-under 204, up 40 places on the live leaderboard to T2 and good for a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead with Emiliano Grillo. UPDATE: With play completed, Chalmers is T3, two back of co-leaders Ian Poulter and Beau Hossler, and will play out of the penultimate twosome in Round 4.

After opening with 67-72, the Colleyville, Texas, resident began on 5-under, six short of leader Beau Hossler and four shy of the overnight top 10. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.570 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.211 around-the-green. The 44-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at 17, outflanked by eight birdies at 11-13, 1, 3, 4, 7 and 8, three from between 11 and 21 feet. He also dropped in a 14-footer and a 25-footer from the fringe (for circles), otherwise his 4.600 SG: Putting mark would've been even higher. The Aussie posted 1.455 putts per GIR and needed just 21 total putts. His lone TOUR title in 432 events came at the 2016 opposite-field Barracuda.
Mar 31 - 4:11 PM

Greg Chalmers blitzed the Golf Club of Houston en route to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 to sit just inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.

The lefty who resides in Texas smothered 15 greens in regulation today. That is the recipe for success for Chalmers who rarely disappoints with the putter. Today he knocked home three putts from outside nine feet without missing any short ones. Overall, it was good for +1.661 strokes gained putting at the time he signed his card. Entering the week he has gained strokes putting in eight straight ShotLink events. If the rain-soaked conditions continue to allow him to hit 83 percent of greens then he should stick around all week. Making his seventh start at the Golf Club of Houston, he is 3-for-6 here including a T8 back in 2011.
Mar 29 - 5:55 PM

Greg Chalmers comes into this week's Honda Classic ranked 204th in the early FedExCup standings.

It's still very early but Chalmers has opened the season with just three cuts made in 10 starts. The lefty hasn't made the FEC Playoffs since 2013. Even with a 2016 victory, he didn't crack them. More recently, he missed the cut in five straight events before grabbing a T68 last week. As for this event, Chalmers is 5-for-7 since the time that PGA National took over hosting duties. With a little course experience under his belt, gamers could take a flyer in very deep leagues, but he's a long shot to truly contend.
Feb 21 - 1:35 PM

Greg Chalmers packs his bags and turns his attention toward TPC Scottsdale ahead of this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The smooth-putting lefty is 5-for-10 at this event, including a trio of top 25s. More recently, he arrives with three straight missed cut, missing the cut in six of his last eight on the PGA TOUR. Internationally, he went back home to record an MC and T11 at the Australian Open and Australian PGA Championship, respectively. Diving back into his PGA TOUR form, Chalmers has lost strokes to the field in 20 of his last 21 starts, making him a very risky option for fantasy gamers.
Jan 30 - 8:26 AM

Two-time Australian PGA Championship winner Greg Chalmers will have his eyes on a third victory this weekend after moving up to third place at the midpoint with a second-round 6-under-par 33-33=66.

That seven-birdie, one-bogey lap of Royal Pines nudged the Aussie local up five spots and, at 10-under 134, he's just two shots behind joint-leaders Marc Leishman and Adam Bland. The left-hander won this event for the first time at Hyatt Coolum in 2011 and landed it again here at Royal Pines in 2014. The tournament specialist kicked off with an opening birdie today but gave it straight back at No. 2. It was only red numbers and pars after that though and he picked up further shots at 3, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 15 to step up his challenge. The 44-year-old is 4th for Putts Per GIR through 36 holes.

Local man Greg Chalmers won the 2014 Australian PGA Championship at Royal Pines but is struggling for form ahead of his return this week.

The left-hander shot a brilliant final-round 64 to take the title three years ago, the most recent of his five wins on the Australasian Tour. He also made the big breakthrough when finally capturing his first PGA TOUR title last year, the Dallas-based Aussie landing the Barracuda Championship. It came 18 years on from his first start and in his 386th event. Chalmers put up a decent defense when T18 there in August but since then he's suffered five missed cuts and a pair of T68s in seven starts. The poor run continued with an early exit in last week's Australian Open. He was T45 in this tournament 12 months ago.

Greg Chalmers hoisted the hardware at the 2016 edition of the Barracuda Championship, returning this week for his first chance at defending a PGA TOUR title.

The smooth-putting lefty put on a show last year, circling 22 birdies and two eagles throughout the week. Chalmers certainly played aggressively, as you'd expect in a Modified Stableford event, swallowing 11 bogeys along the way. Most of the damage was done before the finale where he traded five bogeys with two birdies before his closing eagle. That letdown round was to be expecting since he was playing with his first 54-hole lead on the PGA TOUR, but it was still good enough to take home the hardware. In 11 previous starts at this event, Chalmers had never cracked the top 30, meaning gamers shouldn't hold their breathe if they're expecting a repeat of last year.

Texas resident Greg Chalmers turns his attention toward Colonial Country Club ahead of this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational in Fort Worth, Texas.

The Colleyville resident enters with a 7-for-9 record at this event, including a T15 during the 2001 edition. More recently, Chalmers finished in 72nd place at last week's AT&T Byron Nelson, breaking a five-event slump full of missed cuts. The lefty is just 6-for-19 on the season, ranking 167th in the FedExCup race. With a steady track record at this week's venue, Chalmers makes for an appealing sleeper in deeper fantasy formats that reward cuts made.

World No. 307 Greg Chalmers tacked on a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational for a 54-hole total of 6-under 210, currently T8 and up five places on the day.

The 43-year-old squared bogeys at Nos. 1 and 17 (failed sand saves), circling five birdies in between. He conjured six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.730 strokes off-the-tee but gained 2.351 strokes approaching- and around-the-green. The Aussie, whose only win in 403 career events came in his 386th career start at the 2016 Barracuda, birdied holes 3, 11, 13 (from 37'10"), 14 and 16, four conventional and a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 eighth.

Greg Chalmers settled for an even-par 36-36=72 during round two of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, scribbling a two-day tally of 3-under 141 which has him hovering around the top-10 mark on the live leaderboard.

The lefty found nine (of 14) fairways for the second straight day. He found 11 greens in regulation today, two more than yesterday, but couldn't repeat the same magic on the greens. The magic wasn't completely lost, though, as he holed out from 37'10" at the par-3 17th, his third hole out of the week. The Aussie is making his seventh API appearance this week, with a T28 in 2002 being his best. He will head into the weekend with a great opportunity to set a new mark.

Greg Chalmers cruised to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during round one of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, claiming a spot inside the top 10 on day one.

The Aussie split nine (of 14) fairways and parlayed that into just nine greens in regulation. His short game bailed him out all day. He opened on the back nine and highlights included a 30'3" hole out for birdie at the par-4 11th. The hole outs were not done yet, as he closed his round with a slam dunk from the greenside bunker at the par-4 ninth. Chalmers walked off Bay Hill Club and Lodge gaining 3.495 strokes around-the-green and another 1.949 strokes putting. It will be hard to maintain this kind of short-game pace, but that area is Chalmers' number one asset.

World No. 307 Greg Chalmers has missed his last three cuts at Bay Hill Club and Lodge and enters this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational 169th in the FedExCup standings and off missed cuts in six of his last seven starts.

This is the 43-year-old's seventh appearance, first since a MC in 2014, and overall is 2-for-6 with a best of T28 in 2002. He's made just four cuts this season in 12 events with a best of 28th at the 32-man SBS Tournament of Champions. The Aussie qualified for the winner's only event on Maui with an unexpected triumph at the opposite-field Barracuda Championship last July, where he was the 36- and 54-hole leader and won as a pre-tourney 300/1 outright, and after beginning the season on conditional status. It's his only win in 403 career events and came in his 386th career start. Chalmers' previous best was T2 (x2), most recently at the 2009 Buick Open.

Greg Chalmers is one of 11 first-timers at this week's SBS Tournament of Champions and garnered the invite via his maiden win at the opposite-field Barracuda Championship in his 386th career start.

At No. 282 in the Official World Golf Ranking, the 43-year-old is the lowest-ranked player in the 32-man winners-only field. Excluding two TOUR rookies, he is the only participant this week who did not qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs last season, finishing 142nd with one top 10 in just 12 starts after beginning the season on conditional status. The Aussie, a pre-tourney 300/1 outright at the Barracuda, collected 300 FEC points for the win and came as the 36- and 54-hole leader (his first-ever 54-hole lead on TOUR). In 11 worldwide events since, he's cashed eight times but a T14 at the Emirates Australian Open (seven weeks ago) is his only top-30 finish.

Greg Chalmers has withdrawn from this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba, citing a back injury as the culprit. UPDATE: After a seven-day absence, Chalmers returned to action on Nov. 17th at the Emirates Australian Open and finished T14.

The Aussie opened his week with a bogey at the par-4 first hole before grabbing three straight pars. From there he rinsed his tee ball at the par-5 fifth and then found the water again on his approach shot immediately following the drop. That was all she wrote, as Chalmers decided that was enough. On the bright side, he is in Playa Del Carmen and can still enjoy a nice vacation if he chooses to stick around. In 395 career starts this goes in the books as just his fourth mid-tournament WD. Chalmers is fully exempt through 2017-18, thanks to a win at last year's Barracuda Championship.
