Geoff Ogilvy flirted with the lead at times today but ended up recording a 3-under-par 32-36=68 during round one of the Wells Fargo Championship, good for a spot inside the top 10 on the live leaderboard.
The aging Aussie entered with missed cuts in eight of his last nine starts but an early eagle gave him plenty of confidence today. That big bird came at the par-4 first hole where he holed out from 194 yards. That was a big reason he walked off the course gaining 5.255 strokes approaching-the-green. Ogilvy's putter contributed with a pair of long-distance birdies from outside 15 feet but he also missed four chances from inside 10 feet, including a 2'11" birdie chance at the 8th. Ogilvy has plenty of fond memories of this week's venues, posting top 10s in 2004, 2006, and 2015. May 3 - 6:06 PM

Geoff Ogilvy pieced together a 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship, moving up 18 spots on the live leaderboard as he heads into the weekend on 8-under 136, good for T4 at the moment.

The Aussie striped 13 (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in R1. Today he found two fewer fairways but landed the same number of greens in regulation. That opening round resulted in four birdies and one bogey while today produced seven birdies and two bogeys. Despite the similarities in basic ball-striking stats, Ogilvy found a way to score today. With this round, the 40-year-old will snap a missed-cut streak of five events. With nothing better than T68 (OHL Classic) this season, Ogilvy is also well-positioned for a season-best result down here in the Dominican Republic.

Geoff Ogilvy rolls into the CareerBuilder Challenge at La Quinta CC in California looking for his third made cut in three events this season.

Ogilvy has advanced into the weekend in each of his previous two tournaments this season, but he has faded hard on Saturday and Sunday. He is averaging 69.5 in the opening round and 71.5 in the second round, but then 74.5 in the third round and 72.0 in the fourth round. The 40-year-old hasn't shown very good stamina in his limited results, and that's something that needs to change in order for fantasy players to trust him. If he is to be effective he needs his putter to work, and so far that aspect of his game has abandoned him, too.

After circling six birdies in each of the first two rounds, World No. 231 Geoff Ogilvy labored to a birdie-less 4-over-par 38-36=74 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National, dropping two spots to T4 on 4-under 206, three adrift of playing competitor and 54-hole leader David Lingmerth.

The Aussie didn't lose a whole lot of ground on Lingmerth, who shot 73, but was roughed up by TPC Potomac. He steadied 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, but lost 1.429 strokes around-the-green and 2.092 on-the-green. The 40-year-old, playing on a Top 50 career money exemption, squared four bogeys at Nos. 3, 5, 6 and 14, all failed scrambles. He posted a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR and took 35 total putts.

Geoff Ogilvy orchestrated a day-tying-low 5-under-par 32-33=65 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, reaching 8-under 132 to sit just two strokes off the early clubhouse lead set by David Lingmerth, who also shot 65.

The 40-year-old Aussie is playing like a man determined to earn back his full PGA TOUR status (playing this year on a Career Money exemption). Entering the week ranked 119th in the FedExCup race, he could use one or two more big finishes before the season is over, just to be safe. After a hot putter yielded a 3-under 67 on day one, the putter stayed warm on Friday but he also dialed in his irons and wedges. In fact, Ogilvy gave himself four birdie looks from inside six feet today. He also glued the round together with par-saving putts from 6'7", 7'10", and 19'5" throughout the round. The Aussie walked off the course gaining 3.101 strokes approaching-the-green today. The last time Ogilvy was inside the top 10 at the midpoint was the 2015 Wells Fargo Championship, so this is a pleasant surprise for all Ogilvy fans.

Geoff Ogilvy ranks 119th in the FedExCup race ahead of this week's Quicken Loans National in Potomac, Maryland.

The veteran Aussie didn't even attempt sectional qualifying for the U.S. Open, citing an increased focus on regaining his TOUR status instead of draining his batteries before the stretch run. That is exactly where we are now as Ogilvy sits just inside the FedExCup Playoffs bubble as we enter July. He has picked up paychecks in six of his last eight starts, but he hasn't found a top 20 since the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am back in February. The motivational angle is there for gamers looking to invest in Ogilvy, but his upside is no longer what it used to be.

Playing alternate shot in round one of the Zurich Classic, Geoff Ogilvy and Ian Poulter styled a 3-under-par 34-35=69 to find themselves inside the top 10 early in the week.

Entering the week with a combined 589 PGA TOUR starts, this duo does not lack in the experience department. However, they both lack in the status department, Ogilvy playing on a Career Money exemption with Poulter now playing on conditional status after failing to meet the terms of his Major Medical which ended last week. Today it was all about quality scoring chances, not quantity, as they set up six birdie-or-better looks from inside 10 feet but only one other chance from inside 20 feet. This duo will be intriguing to watch as the week progresses because a big finish could help them both tremendously in terms of regaining full status for the 2017-18 season.

Geoff Ogilvy looks to get back on track as he readies for this week's Shell Houston Open.

Playing this season on a Top 50 career money list exemption, Ogilvy is 4-for-10 to open the season but arrives with three straight missed cuts to his name. That has him positioned nicely at 90th in the FedExCup race. Remaining inside the top 125 would be a great feat by season's end, allowing him to regain full status without leaning on career accomplishments. This week's venue presents a decent opportunity for the Aussie, as he posted finishes of T2 and T6 in his first two appearances at Golf Club of Houston, although he's finished outside the top 40 in four visits since. Gamers needing an off-the-radar flier can give Ogilvy a look this week in Humble, Texas.

Playing Pebble Beach Golf Links, World No. 197 Geoff Ogivly fashioned a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to post 8-under 207, up 32 places on the live leaderboard to T3, three back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker. UPDATE: With play completed, Ogilvy is T6, a distant nine back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

The 39-year-old is making his seventh appearance and this will be just a second cash (T25/2012). He began with even-par 71 (Monterey Peninsula CC) and a five-birdie three-bogey 70 (Spyglass Hill). The Aussie went off No. 10 tee and circled back-to-backs at 10 and 11 to turn 2-under and added further birdies at 2, 4, 6 and 8. He landed 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.571 putts per GIR and 3.204 SG: Putting. All six of Ogilvy's par breakers were from inside of 10 feet.

On La Quinta Country Club, World No. 194 Geoff Ogilvy fashioned a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge for a three-day total of 12-under 204, up three spots to T10 with play still in progress.

Playing this season on a Top 50 career money list exemption, the 39-year-old opened his eighth appearance with 67-69 to begin the third round on 8-under (T13). Beginning off No. 10 tee, he went out in 2-under with birdies at Nos. 11 and 18, before squaring a lone bogey-5 at the second. The Aussie rebounded with eagle at the par-5 sixth and birdie-2 at seven which completed his scoring. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation for a third straight lap.

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.

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.

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.
