Geoff Ogilvy conjured a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and is positioned for his first top 10 of 2013-14 at 4-under 212.
Ogivly's previous best finishes on the PGA TOUR this season are a pair of T29s at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and the Northern Trust Open. He bagged six birdies on his lap around TPC San Antonio, handing back three bogeys in the process. His highlights were late in the day, driving the green at the par-4 17th and narrowly missing an 11'5" eagle attempt for a tap-in birdie, then wedging his third shot at the par-5 18th to nine inches for an easy birdie to end the day.

Geoff Ogilvy will compete in this week's Valero Texas Open.

Ogilvy is having an up-and-down season with five missed cuts and only four cuts made. The Aussie shared the 36-hole lead with six others when he competed here in 2011, so he might be worth a closer look this week for weekly salary gamers in search of a cheap pick.

Geoff Ogilvy enters The Honda Classic this week as the all-time earnings leader in this event.

The funny thing is, Ogilvy has amassed his $1,841,608.33 without the benefit of a victory. He has been a runner-up on three occasions, including last season. The venue moved to PGA National in 2007, where it remains. Last season was the first time he teed it up at the current venue.

Geoff Ogilvy, once again, seems to be making the Humana Challenge a regular event, as he will play this week.

The Aussie competed in his first four editions of this tournament from 2002-2005, but then was noticeably absent until last year, when he tied for 27th. It seems clear that his attendance in this event correlates with the level of his star power, as he was considered one of the game's elite for much of the time he skipped this tournament. For gamers, this offers a glimpse that he may comprehend that he isn't the player he used to be.

Geoff Ogilvy failed to break $1 million on the PGA TOUR in 2013 for the first time since 2002, and the early returns of the 2013-14 season don't appear to be all that encouraging.

The Aussie teed it up at the Open and the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open during the Fall Series, finishing T72 and 69th respectively. Recently, he tied for seventh at the Talisker Masters and was T27 at the Emirates Australian Open, so perhaps some home cooking did a little good. The hardest thing for gamers, is there isn't anything explaining the gradual slide other than blanket speculation. At 36, he isn't very old by current standards. He has earned over $26 million just on the PGA TOUR, so one could surmise that he has it on cruise control. Either way, there isn't a solid reason to invest heavily for 2013-14.

Geoff Ogilvy makes his first start at the Open this week.

The Aussie finished 104th in the FedExCup standings and 93rd on the money list. He is fully exempt through 2014-15 season so, while that isn't the issue, he is in a desperate search for the form that delivered him a U.S. Open championship back in 2006. Adding CordeValle to his list of stops signals a possible change in strategy towards his 2013-14 schedule.

Geoff Ogilvy turned in a pair of 4-over-par 75 at The Open Championship and will miss the cut.

He split only half of his 28 fairways and created just 20 birdie opportunities at Muirfield. He circled four birdies but squared eight bogeys and two doubles to secure the weekend off. This was his 11th appearance in this major, eight have which have resulted in a missed cut. In his other three tries, he has two top 10s and a T16.

Geoff Ogilvy won the 2006 U.S. Open at Winged Foot and is back to take on Merion Golf Club this season.

It’s been a rough year for Ogilvy, only finishing inside the top 25 just one time. That came in the form of a runner-up at The Honda Classic. His struggles this year show up most noticeably with the flat stick, ranking 167th in strokes gained. You can never count a past winner out, but things aren't looking all that promising for the Aussie this time around.

Geoff Ogilvy looks to stay perfect at the Wells Fargo Championship, having never missed a cut in eight prior trips to Quail Hollow.

In half of those appearances, the Aussie has cracked the top 25 but has nothing better than a couple of ties for 10th. Absent his runner-up at The Honda Classic, he’s only made three cuts in his nine other starts and hasn’t found his way inside the top 25. Perhaps he snaps his streak of two missed cuts this week, but shouldn’t be counted on for a big payday.

Geoff Ogilvy has been removed from the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

After missing the cut at Redstone last week, it was only a matter of time before he'd learn that he'd fall outside the top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking and fail to secure a berth in next week's Masters. Indeed, he dropped five spots to 55th in the latest update. The last tee time at Augusta National will go to the champion of the VTO if not already eligible, but Ogilvy clearly believes that his game isn't in shape to win a tournament right now.

Geoff Ogilvy carded a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Here he is again, wedging his way into our consciousness. The Aussie continues to play well at times. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at Bay Hill today. Alas, he bogeyed both holes where he failed to hit his GIRs, but he converted four birdies to offset the damage. All of his birdies dropped in from holes 11-16, including rolls from 13'8" at 11 and 14'11" at 14. He signed his card sitting five strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Geoff Ogilvy looped the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort in 2-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the Tampa Bay Championship.

After the Aussie reminded us in the form of a runner-up at The Honda Classic that he still has game, he faded to a T47 at last week's WGC-Cadillac Championship. Copperhead has been relatively kind to Ogilvy in his last four starts, two of which resulted in a top 20; he placed no worse than T28 twice either. He hit 10 greens today and complemented a 12-yard hole-out for eagle at the par-5 fifth hole with three birdies, including conversions from 20'10" at 9 and 13'6" at 17. Alas, it wasn't all koala bears and eucalyptus as he also carded three bogeys, all as a result of par misses from inside eight feet. He concluded his round sitting two strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Geoff Ogilvy nearly played flawless golf in the final round of The Honda Classic, turning in a 1-under-par 35-34=69 to finish his week at 7-under 273, good for a solo runner-up finish.

The former U.S. Open winner played PGA National like it was the national championship, making pars on each of his first 13 holes and surviving the conditions. Ogilvy suffered his lone blemish of the round on the par-4 14th when his drive found a fairway bunker; he had to lay back on his second shot. The Aussie bounced back with a birdie on the par-3 15th and reached red figures for the first time in his round with a two-putt birdie on the 18th. Given he had missed his last four cuts entering this week, his performance was a pleasant surprise. Shortly after the conclusion of the tournament, it was confirmed that Ogilvy has climbed into the top 50 of the Official World Golf Ranking, thus earning a berth into this week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship. He rose 32 spots to 47th. It's hard to believe but he's not yet eligible for the Masters.

Geoff Ogilvy fought back to shoot an even-par 35-35=70 in the third round of The Honda Classic, joining Lee Westwood in the clubhouse lead at 6-under 204.

With three bogeys surrounding one birdie in his first four holes, the Aussie found himself in survival mode early and often. He responded with birdie on eight and nine to square his nine to level. He then scrambled for a birdie on the par-5 18th after being over the green in two to erase his only bogey of the back nine on the par-4 16th. It's been a poor year for Ogilvy, with four missed cuts in five starts before this week, but all will be forgotten if he closes the deal in Sunday's finale.

Geoff Ogilvy turned in a 4-under-par 30-36=66 for his second round of The Honda Classic to reach the midpoint in 6-under 134, two strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Assuming unforeseen circumstances on the weekend, Ogilvy's streak of failing to cash will end at four starts. He secured this week's payday with a brilliant run of bogey-free golf on his opening nine today. It included five birdies and featured a conversion from 26'1" at the first hole to set the tone. He rolled in his third from 10'7" at 7 before holing out from the greenside rough at the par-3 eighth for another birdie. The Aussie then punctuated his outward side with one more at the ninth, this time from 26'8". This is Ogilvy's first appearance at PGA National.
