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.
Jun 16 - 9:21 PM

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.
Apr 18 - 6:32 PM

Greg Chalmers withdrew from the RBC Heritage during his opening round due to a back injury.

The lefty split the expansive fairway at the par-4 18th hole, his ninth of the round, and then walked off. He was 5-over-par through eight holes with no par breakers, three bogeys and a double. It's just his third mid-tournament WD in 349 PGA TOUR starts. It drops him to 8-for-14 on the season. He started the week slotted 109th in FedExCup points.
Apr 17 - 3:03 PM

Greg Chalmers enters the RBC Heritage ranked 109th in the FedExCup standings.

Chalmers has cooled off considerably since the Waste Management Phoenix Open. Since that tournament in February, the lefty has missed four-of-seven cuts and has lost strokes to field putting in four of the last five events. That is very unusual for him, as he currently ranks 6th in strokes gained-putting. If he can regain his putting stroke, there is always an outside chance of contention for the Aussie.
Apr 16 - 1:02 PM

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.
