Playing this season on a Top 50 career-money-list exemption, World No. 286 Geoff Ogilvy handed in a 3-under-par 33-35=68 after today's final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open for a 72-hole total of 16-under 268, four short of champion and fellow Aussie Rod Pampling and in a three-way T4.
The 39-year-old began the final frame T4 and that's where he finished following a five-birdie two-bogey effort. He arrived off missed cuts at the Safeway and the Sanderson Farms and departs with his first top 10 since back-dooring a T9 at the RBC Canadian Open in July with a 9-under 63. The Scottsdale, Arizona, resident also records his best finish since T2 at the 2013-14 Deutsche Bank Championship. His previous best at the Shriners was T16 in 2005. Nov 6 - 8:52 PM

Geoff Ogilvy rallied for a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at TPC Summerlin, up nine places on the live leaderboard to T3 and joining 54-hole clubhouse leader Russell Henley on 13-under 200. UPDATE: With play completed, Ogilvy is in a two-way T4, two back of 54-hole leader Lucas Glover

Playing this season on a Top 50 career-money-list exemption, the 39-year-old arrived for his eighth appearance off back-to-back missed cuts at the Safeway (75-76) and the Sanderson Farms (73-73). He has one finish inside the top 30 in Vegas, T16 in 2005, but he's opened in twin 67s and 66. The Aussie exchanged two birdies with two bogeys to turn even, but came to the house in blemish-free 5-under, circling the 10th and four straight on holes 14-17. Six of his seven conversions were conventional, adding a 23-footer from the fringe at the par-3 eighth.
Nov 5 - 6:28 PM

Eight-time PGA TOUR winner Geoff Ogilvy makes his way to TPC Summerlin for his eighth Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and arrives off consecutive missed cuts at the Safeway Open (75-76) and Sanderson Farms (73-73).

The 39-year-old had just three top-25 finishes last season in 22 events and they all came in his last four starts of the season as he attempted to make the Playoffs and keep his card. It wasn't nearly enough however, finishing 161st in FedExCup points, missing the postseason for a second straight year. The Aussie's exemption from his win at the 2014 Barracuda also ran out, so he's using a Top 50 career-money-list exemption -- where he ranks 28th with $29.5M -- for this season. Ogilvy missed the cut here last year (by one) and finished 69th (of 71) in 2014.

Geoff Ogilvy painted a 9-under-par 32-31=63 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to post the clubhouse mark on 9-under 279, up 43 places on the live leaderboard to T1 and tying the low round of the week with two others.

The 39-year-old is making his sixth RBC appearance with a best of T4 in 2011 (Shaughnessy G&CC). He arrived 190th in the FedExCup standings with only six made cuts on the season in 18 prior starts. The Aussie's season-best was T33 as a sponsor exemption three starts ago at the Memorial. He began the final frame on even-par (T44) after opening in 73-71-72, nine swings back of overnight leader Brandt Snedeker. The eight-time TOUR winner split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 5.296 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.500 putts per GIR. He camouflaged a lone bogey-4 at the 12th with birdies at Nos. 2, 5, 8, 11, 13 and 15, and then eagled the par-5 16th (from 40 inches) and the par-5 18th from 4'6". Ogilvy's last win on TOUR came at the 2014 Barracuda.

Sponsor invite Geoff Ogilvy rallied for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the Memorial to post 7-under 137, up three to T10 with play still in progress.

The 38-year-old, who turns 39 this month (June 11th), is making his 13th appearance but first since missing the cut in 2013 after rounds of 77-76. He's in the midst of a career-worst season, arriving with 11 missed cuts in 16 starts and ranking 195th in the FedExCup standings. The Aussie kicked off with a seven-birdie three-bogey 68 and chased with five birdies against two bogeys in R2. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and mustered 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR. Ogilvy erased birdies at Nos. 6 and 7 with bogeys at 1 and 12, but circled three over his final six holes, including a long of the day from 12'4" at the par-4 13th and a gimme from three inches at the 18th after hitting his approach stiff from 192 yards out.

Geoff Ogilvy returns to Quail Hollow Club for a 12th appearance at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The Aussie enters the week with a 4-for-13 record on the season. That slots him into 191st position on the FedExCup standings. Luckily, he brings great course history with him to Charlotte, North Carolina. Ogilvy is 11-for-11 at Quail Hollow with eight top 25s. Course history buffs will want to target him in DFS this week as he sits in the bargain bin.

Geoff Ogilvy plastered a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the first day of the Zurich Classic, currently three strokes off the pace set by Brian Stuard.

The Aussie is just 3-for-12 on the season but managed to put those bad vibes in the back of his mind today. Instead he went right to work in landing 12 (of 14) fairways and splashing home a few lengthy putts to pad his scorecard. The first birdie bomb came from 47 feet on the par-4 fourth hole and he adding another from 35'2" on the par-3 14th. This will go in the books as just his 11th round in red numbers in 33 tries this season. The eight-time PGA TOUR winner could use this as a slump-busting round or return right back to his poor form so gamers should keep a close eye on the Aussie as the week progresses.
Apr 28 - 7:36 PM

Geoff Ogilvy makes his way back to Scottsdale, Arizona, for his 14th look at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The Aussie is 8-for-15 in his career at the WMPO, but he's still searching for his first top 10 at the event. To make matters worse, his game is all out of sorts currently, earning zero paychecks in five tries to kick off the new season. Gamers are taking a big risk this week if they place Ogilvy on their rosters.

Geoff Ogilvy finished 154th in the FedExCup standings last season with one top 10 (T7, Wells Fargo) on 15 starts and five missed cuts, missing the Playoffs for the first time in the FEC era.

Dating back to last season, the 38-year-old has missed five consecutive cuts on the PGA TOUR, including an 0-for-3 start in 2015-16. He posted a T14 two weeks ago at the Ho Tram Open (Asian Tour) and a T8 at the Emirates Australian Open the week prior (68-71-71-73), seven shots in arrears of champion and fellow Aussie Matt Jones.

Geoff Ogilvy gets his first look at El Camaleón Golf Club at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, México.

The Americans are a perfect 8-for-8 at the OHL Classic in México. Ogilvy has a good a chance as any of the 44 internationals in the 132-man field to end that streak. Motivation should be high for the Aussie, and he's in the last season of his exemption on TOUR from winning the 2014 Barracuda Championship, his eighth title in 333 career starts. No course form to go off here as the 38-year-old makes his tournament debut, but there has been five first-time winners already this season on TOUR in as many events. On the flip side, he's missed four consecutive cuts coming into the week, including his first two starts in 2015-16.

Geoff Ogilvy gets an early start to his season when he tees it up at the Frys.com Open in Napa, California.

Ogilvy made 10 cuts on a career-low 15 starts in 2014-15 and finished 154th in the final FedExCup standings. His season best was a T7 at the Wells Fargo Championship and was his only top 10, missing the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since their inception in 2007. The Aussie remains fully exempt thru 2015-16 however, via his win at the 2014 Barracuda Championship, his eight career victory on the PGA TOUR. Ogilvy's only prior appearance in the Frys.com came in 2013 (2013-14 season) and posted a T72/MDF on rounds of 76-66-71.

Geoff Ogilvy picked off seven points in his second round of the Barracuda Championship, but missed the cut by three points.

He hit only 11 greens in regulation but lassoed five birdies at Montrêux Golf and Country Club today. Alas, the trio of bogey-5s made up the difference between slamming his trunk and a tee time on Saturday. This drops him to 10-for-14 on the season as he looks ahead to Whistling Straits next week. Other notables who missed the cut today include: 8 points--Tim Clark; Scott Langley; Ryo Ishikawa ... 7 points--Alex Cejka ... 6 points--Adam Hadwin ... 5 points--Hudson Swafford; Spencer Levin; S.J. Park ... 3 points--Jeff Overton; Ollie Schniederjans ... 0 points--2000 champ Scott Verplank; 2008 champ Parker McLachlin.

Geoff Ogilvy opened his title defense of the Barracuda Championship with minus-1 point.

Pure and simple, this wasn't good golf today from the Aussie. He hit 13 greens in regulation and circled only two birdies, both of some distance. The first rolled in from 11'5" at the par-5 eighth hole; the second disappeared from 34'10" at the par-3 16th. Ogilvy also squared two bogeys, but he concluded his round with a 7 at the par-5 18th. Well, officially it's a double bogey but only because worse scores aren't tabulated when the Modified Stableford scoring system is in effect. See, he took two penalties en route to the green and sat 6 in the rough 91 yards away. Even if he holed out, it wouldn't have mattered.

Geoff Ogilvy arrives in Reno, Nevada, for a shot at defending his 2014 Barracuda Championship title.

The Aussie arrived out of sorts last year before putting on a Modified Stableford clinic. He had zero top 30s in the six starts leading up to victory. Current form is much better this time around, collecting top 30s in three of his last six, including a T7 at the Wells Fargo Championship. Ogilvy set the tournament record last year with 49 points, so he's certainly worth a shot in formats that require Barracuda picks this week.

Geoff Ogilvy turned in a 4-under-par 35-33=68 for his second round of The Open Championship and posted 5-under 139 at the break.

The Aussie has already had three notable subsections of form at St. Andrews. He birdied four of his first six holes on Thursday and sat bogey-free 6-under after 12. He gave almost all of it back by playing the next four holes in 5-over. Today, while hitting 15 greens in regulation, he really didn't capitalize until late with birdies at 15, 17 and 18. They paid off two birdies against one bogey going out. He signed his card sitting four swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
