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.
Mar 18 - 5:06 PM

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.
Mar 17 - 2:08 PM

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.
Mar 16 - 6:25 PM

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.
Jan 4 - 7:14 AM

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.

Greg Chalmers coasted to a 4-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, placing him three strokes off the early pacesetters Rafa Cabrera Bello and Kevin Na.

The 42-year-old entered the week ranked 146th in the FedExCup. However, he has much less pressure on him than others in that same range, considering he locked up PGA TOUR status with his win earlier this season at the Barracuda. Playing with out that added pressure, he made Sedgefield Country Club look rather easy, splitting 10 (of 14) fairways and landing 15 greens in regulation. The lefty splashed in just one putt from outside nine feet, which prevented him from going really low. Despite the cold flat stick, Chalmers is still inside the top 10 through day one as he searches for his first top 30 at the Wyndham (12th appearance).

Overnight leader and World No. 490 Greg Chalmers patched together a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in today's final round of the Barracuda Championship to collect 4 points and post 43 points total, good for a six-point win over runner-up Gary Woodland and his first TOUR title in his 386th career start.

The 42-year-old, a pre-tourney 300/1 outright, had the dubious distinction of leading all active players with the most starts on TOUR without a win. His previous best was T2 two times, most recently at the 2009 Buick Open. Playing this season on conditional status with a lone cash in six prior events -- T58 at the no-cut HSBC Champions -- the Aussie earns a two-year exemption on TOUR and also claims a spot in The Open Championship at Royal Troon, where he'll be making his fourth appearance. He led this week by two points after 36 holes and by six after 54, the latter his first-ever 54-hole lead on TOUR. Understandably, it was a struggle in the finale, squaring five against two birdies, but culminated his win, and first top 10 since T10 at the 2013-14 McGladrey, with a 8'7" eagle putt on the par-5 18th.

Overnight leader Greg Chalmers twirled a 7-under-par 34-31=65 in today's third round of the Barracuda Championship to collect 15 points and reach 39 points total, good for a six-point lead over Ben Martin and Gary Woodland.

The 42-year-old opened with a bogey-5 at the first on a failed sand save, but played his final 17 holes blemish-free. He circled eight birdies, including five in his last six holes to increase his margin, which was just two points to begin the day. The Aussie banged-in seven the conventional way, highlighted by a 15'9" roll at the par-4 ninth and a 28'4" blast at the par-4 15th, adding a chip-in birdie-3 at the fifth. The transplanted Texan striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.462 putts per GIR.

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. UPDATE: With play completed, Chalmers leads by 2 points over Gary Woodland and 18-hole leader Martin Laird.

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.
