Bo Van Pelt will tee it up in The Barclays at Ridgewood Country Club ranked 104th in the FedExCup standings.
While BVP skated into the Playoffs without too much drama, he is on the wrong side of the cut line for the Deutsche Bank Championship next week. He must do enough heavy lifting this week to move inside the top 100 in the FEC standings. His last three PGA TOUR starts have gone T7-MC-T14 at the John Deere Classic, RBC Canadian Open, and Wyndham Championship respectively. While that sounds good, his previous two trips to Ridgewood CC in 2008 and 2010 resulted in a 71st and a missed cut. Aug 19 - 3:31 PM

Bo Van Pelt calmly wrote down a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 10-under 200.

BVP's three birdies were only offset by one bogey. He dropped a couple of bombs at Sedgefield CC in the form of a 35'8" birdie on the par-4 14th and a 23'6" birdie on the par-4 17th. While not quite a bubble boy for the FedExCup Playoffs at 114th in the FedExCup standings, a top-10 finish this week would certainly help his chances of advancing past The Barlcays and into the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Bo Van Pelt toured Sedgefield Country Club in 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round of the Wyndham Championship.

At 114th in the FedExCup standings, BVP has no worries about qualifying for the Playoffs, but it's not the season he wanted. However, anything is possible in the next few weeks, which can he set up with a strong effort in Greesboro. He went 2-for-2 in scrambling today, but three-jacked the par-4 second from outside 57 feet for bogey. It was his only blemish of the day. Van Pelt followed with six birdies, including rolls from 36'11" and 14'1" at Nos. 9 and 18, respectively. He opened the walk, and perhaps set the tone for a taut experience, with a par save measuring 11'4" at the par-4 first. The one-time PGA TOUR winner is 8-under 132, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Bo Van Pelt has been removed from the published field of this week's Barracuda Championship.

He's the only WD today so far. BVP missed the cut in Canada to halt a consecutive cuts made streak at seven. At 106th in the FedExCup standings, he's in good position to qualify for the Playoffs for the eighth time in as many chances.

Bo Van Pelt turned in a 4-under-par 36-30=66 for his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

BVP is bouncing off a season-best T7 at the John Deere Classic, so it's downright refreshing to see him go low again in Canada. He hit 12 greens and buried seven birdies, six of which on his second nine (holes 1-9 on the Blue Course at Royal Montreal). Three of his conventional conversions disappeared from outside 10 feet, the longest measuring 20'7" at the par-4 third. He also holed a zero-putt seven-yarder at 2 and bogey try from 10'9" at the par-4 fourth.
Jul 24 - 5:06 PM

Bo Van Pelt charged up the leaderboard with a final-round 6-under-par 33-32=65 at the John Deere Classic to post the clubhouse lead at 16-under 268.

Van Pelt circled five birdies and an eagle to just one bogey on his navigation of TPC Deere Run. Four of his five birdies came from between 10 and 17 feet, but the real highlight was an approach from 224 yards to set up a 2'1" eagle on the par-5 second hole. The ball-striking was elite, as he split 13 of 14 fairways and landed 15 GIR. It's been a struggle for BVP this year, but this should hold up for his first top 10 of the 2013-14 season.
Jul 13 - 4:45 PM

Bo Van Pelt nearly picked off his second PGA TOUR victory at Congressional Country Club in the 2012 Quicken Loans National and is looking for that magic this week.

BVP backed that runner-up finish with a missed cut in 2013, making it hard to place too much stock in his course history. While 2013-14 isn't close to his best PGA TOUR season, at 111th in the FedExCup standings, he has picked up his game lately having made his last five cuts including a pair of top 20s. It's probably not fair to label him a dark horse this week, but he could fly in under the radar and walk away with a big paycheck.
Jun 25 - 10:24 PM

Bo Van Pelt got the third round of the Memorial Tournament off and running with a 6-under-par 30-36=66, improving to 6-under 210 for the week.

Van Pelt was on fire early, circling each of his seven birdies over the first 11 holes before squaring his only blemish at the par-4 14th. Highlights included a 35'5" birdie on the par-4 second and a 15'5" birdie on the par-3 fourth holes. He split 11 of 14 fairways for the third consecutive day, adding an impressive 15 GIR in the process. BVP is continuing to play his way into the form gamers grew accustomed to seeing in 2012.

Bo Van Pelt followed his opening 67 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 2-under-par 34-34=68.

This was vintage BVP all day long. He hit 15 greens in regulation and offset a lone bogey at the par-4 fifth hole with three birdies. All of his 18 conversions measured under 10 feet, but he fanned on three from 8-10 feet. At 5-under 135, he's two strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 23 - 1:36 PM

Bo Van Pelt twirled a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Van Pelt loves himself some Colonial, and it showed today. He went 3-for-4 in scrambling en route to a bogey at the par-4 sixth hole while circling four birdies the rest of the way. His most notable conversions occurred on par 3s. After his try from 13'8" dropped at the 16th, he rolled one in from 19'9" at 8. BVP signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead. He hadn't opened a start this low since he kicked off last year's Travelers Championship with the same.

Bo Van Pelt will look to build on his strong course resume as he enters this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

BVP is finding some form just in time for one of his favorite tournaments. After a mid-season slump that consisted of five straight missed cuts, Van Pelt has now finished 26th or better in three of his last six events. What's more important is his perfect 10-for-10 track record at Colonial with six top 25s, three of those landing inside the top 10, as well.

Bo Van Pelt lambasted TPC Louisiana in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, signing for a 9-under-par 32-31=63.

No need to adjust your digital device. It is, indeed, 2014. Van Pelt converted two eagles and six birdies to offset a lone bogey (at the par-3 ninth hole) today. His first eagle was the highlight of the round as he holed a 32-yard pitch from the rough at the par-5 11th. His other eagle was walk-off 13'3" conversion at the par-5 18th. Three of his birdies measured 11-15 feet and he added a par save from 12'2" at 3. It's hard to believe given his reputation as a guy that used to go low with regularity, but today's aggregate ties his career low. It's the third time he's carded a 63 and the first since the opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in 2009. At 7-under 137, BVP is eight strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Apr 25 - 3:18 PM

Bo Van Pelt carded a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 3-under 139 at the break.

Van Pelt hit only 10 greens in regulation and swallowed three bogeys, but he offset with four birdies, just one of which from outside five feet (10 feet, 12th hole). He's two strokes off the pace of the 36-hole co-leaders.
Apr 19 - 12:08 PM

Bo Van Pelt submitted a 2-under-par 35-34=69 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

BVP landed only 10 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to a lone double bogey at the par-3 14th hole where he rinsed his tee ball. Elsewhere, he found four birdies to secure his season-tying low opening aggregate (Valero). He was perfect inside 11 feet, but his longest conversion measure just 7'4" for par at the par-3 fourth.
Apr 17 - 2:01 PM

Bo Van Pelt completed 36 holes of the Shell Houston Open in 11-over-par 75-80=155 and will miss the cut.

Sigh. He circled two birdies in each round, but swallowed 10 bogeys. He also played the par-4 fifth hole triple bogey-double bogey. It's his seventh MC in 11 starts this season, but his first two tournaments didn't have a cut (CIMB, WGC-HSBC). To find the last time he connected paydays in PGA TOUR events with a cut, you have to go back to June of last year when he wrapped up a consecutive cuts made streak of eight with a T43 at the Travelers Championship. At the time, BVP sat 27th in the Official World Golf Ranking. He started this week at No. 100.
