Greg Chalmers rallied for a 4-under-par 36-32=68 and 10 points in the second round of the Barracuda Championship for a two-day tally of 24 points, up one place on the live leaderboard and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.
The 42-year-old is making his 386th career start on TOUR and just his seventh of the season on conditional status. He's still searching for his first career TOUR title but thru two days in Reno, the Aussie is making a serious bid to erase the goose egg. Chalmers was 1-over on his lap thru 10 holes (0 points), overshadowing birdie at the ninth with bogeys on 7 and 10, but circled five birdies over his final eight holes, dropping 16-footers at 11 and 14, and capping with a 9'9" walk-off 4 at the par-5 18th. The Texas resident striped 11 (of 14) fairways and mustered 10 greens in regulation, losing -2.214 strokes approaching the green, but posted a stellar 4.962 in SG: Putting and 1.400 putts per GIR.

Greg Chalmers cruised to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round one of the Barracuda Championship, collecting 14 points under the Modified Stableford scoring format.

The Aussie landed 12 greens in regulation today and let his flat stick go to town from there. Chalmers rolled in six putts from outside eight feet. The longest was a 17'10" par-saver at the par-4 10th. It was one of three putts converted from outside 12 feet. Despite missing a 3'11" par-saving attempt at No. 14, Chalmers still finished the round gaining 2.68 strokes with the putter. In addition to the putting, he also holed out from 27'7" for eagle on the par-5 13th. The Aussie hasn't collected a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since a T22 at the 2014 Byron Nelson Championship, but he's off to a good start in Reno.

Greg Chalmers secured a spot in this week's Valero Texas Open field thanks to a pre-tournament change of heart from Retief Goosen.

The veteran PGA TOUR member has been making his starts on the Tour lately with starts on the big stage getting tougher and tougher to come by, given his status. He is 1-for-3 on the Tour and just 1-for-4 during the current PGA TOUR campaign. Luckily, Chalmers is no stranger to JW Marriott TPC San Antonio as he's 3-for-3 with a pair of top 40s on his resume. The Texas resident will enjoy playing just four hours from home, but his upside is limited at this stage of his career.

Greg Chalmers conjured up a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Chitimacha Louisiana Open to join Julian Etulain in the 54-hole lead at 12-under 201.

Chalmers erased his lone bogey of the day with five birdies on his trot around Le Triomphe G&CC. In fact, bogey avoidance has been the key to his week, as he has amassed just two through 54 holes. Compared to his co-leader, Chalmers is the grizzled veteran that's been there and done that. He will try and claim his third Tour win in 94 starts on Sunday.

Greg Chalmers lugs his gear overseas in preparation for this week's World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

The Aussie will be making his eighth appearance in a WGC event, still in search of his first top 10. Chalmers is coming off a second straight season of missing out on the FedExCup Playoffs. Last year, he tallied 17 starts, missing the cut in just five of them. Unfortunately, the lefty found nothing better than a T26 over the course of the season. Gamers should keep Chalmers on the bench until further notice.

Greg Chalmers descends upon Reno, Nevada, for his 11th playing of the Barracuda Championship and enters the week 171st in the FedExCup standings.

Chalmers is making his 378th career start on the PGA TOUR and he's yet to win. He's played in 10 Barracuda's making the weekend five times. His best finish is a T35, which came all the way back in 2002. The 41-year-old is 10-for-15 on the season with no top 25s. He started 2014-15 with a T26 at the CIMB Classic in November and it's his best finish to date. In his last five starts, he's missed three cuts and finished T68 at the John Deere Classic and T58 at The Open Championship. The Aussie missed the FEC playoffs last year for the first time since 2007 & 2008, when he lost status and played on the Tour.

Greg Chalmers has gained entry into this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Chalmers started the week as the third alternate, but he didn't secure a tee time until Neal Lancaster withdrew today. The lefty has competed in every edition of the Greenbrier but failed to finish inside the top 50 in both of his paydays. He's 161st in the FedExCup standings with zero top 25s via the conditional status category.

Greg Chalmers has found a place in this week's Travelers Championship.

The lefty was the first alternate when the field was released. He gained entry following four withdrawals. Playing on conditional status this season, Chalmers if 159th in the FedExCup standings and without a top 25 among eight paydays. 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).
