Geoff Ogilvy kicked off the final round festivities at the TOUR Championship with a 3-over-par 38-35=73.
Ogilvy blitzed through East Lake by himself, playing his round in just under two and a half hours. The Aussie circled five birdies today but gave back more than his fair share along the way as he doubled the par-4 first as well as the par-4 17th holes. In the end, his 20-over 300 will be recorded as a last place finish, but just making it to East Lake qualifies it a successful season for Ogilvy. He will finish the season 29th in the FedExCup standings. Sep 14 - 2:19 PM

Geoff Ogilvy went through the motions on his way to a 3-over-par 34-39=73 in the third round of the TOUR Championship.

Sitting 22 strokes off the lead to begin the day, Ogilvy had zero pressure on him as he navigated East Lake for the third time this week. Played in just over two and a half hours, the Aussie landed 12 greens in regulation on the day. He picked up his fourth and fifth birdies of the week on the front nine, but gave four strokes back on his way in. Sitting at 17-over 227 after 54 holes, Ogilvy will be the first man on the course again come Sunday.

Geoff Ogilvy has opened the TOUR Championship with a pair of 7-over-par 77s.

The Aussie served at today's rabbit in the 29-man field, all others paired in twosomes. He's split only 12 (of 28) fairways, hit 16 greens in regulation and circled just three birdies at East Lake Golf Club thus far. Ogilvy has also swallowed 13 bogeys and two doubles. He signed his card sitting seven strokes higher than fellow countryman John Senden. Ogilvy was a non-factor on the Playoffs landscape until winning the Barracuda Championship just six weeks ago. A co-runner-up at the Deutsche Bank laid the foundation for an appearance in Atlanta.

Geoff Ogilvy continued to live to fight another day all the way to East Lake Golf Club for the TOUR Championship.

While the Aussie still has a mountain to climb if he hopes to win the FedExCup title, entering the week 25th in the FEC standings, he's already defied the odds late in the season. He entered the Barracuda Championship ranked 151st in the standings and hoisted the trophy. Ogilvy's next trick was a T2 at the Deutsche Bank Championship to pave the way for a top-30 finish. Perhaps the lesson is not to count him out.

Geoff Ogilvy surged in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship with a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 to take the clubhouse lead at 13-under 271.

The Aussie was the last man in the field this week, beginning the tournament in the 100th spot in the FedExCup standings, but will easily advance to the BMW Championship later this week. Perhaps his ranking removed any pressure this week and allowed him to play without any worries. The flat stick was on fire Monday afternoon, with four of his birdies falling from outside of 13 feet including a 29'5" bomb on the par-4 fifth hole. He was without a bogey over his final 40 holes of the tournament. The putter was the key to that run, as he gained 2.577 strokes with the putter in the third round and just over three strokes in the finale. He will now sit back and watch to see if he will claim his second PGA TOUR win in his last four starts.

Geoff Ogilvy dissected TPC Boston to the tune of a bogey-free 6-under-par 36-29=65 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is the first to reach the clubhouse at 7-under 206.

Ogilvy flew under the radar early, settling for pars on each of his first nine holes. He flipped a switch at the turn, picking up four birdies and an eagle over his final nine holes. A 17'7" birdie on the par-4 10th got him on the board and was followed by an 11'4" birdie at the par-12th. He saved his biggest roar for last, stopping his approach on the par-5 18th 12 feet from the hole for a closing eagle. He entered the week 100th in the FedExCup standings but was projected to advance to the BMW Championship should his position hold for 18 more holes.

Geoff Ogilvy was the last man in the field at this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings.

It's remarkable that Ogilvy has made it this far, considering it was looking like a lost season prior to his win at the Barracuda Championship. On the year, he's earned just six top 30s in 23 events. You won't find any statistical predictors of success for the Aussie, as he's outside the top 100 in nearly every category. With 21 career podium finishes on his resume, he deserves more attention than some of the younger, inexperienced pups, but he's still a long shot to contend this week.

Geoff Ogilvy is ranked 90th in the FedExCup standings ahead of The Barclays this week.

The Aussie needed a win at the Barracuda Championship three weeks ago just to move inside the top 125 to snare a Playoff berth. Now that he's in, he must continue posting solid returns to secure spots in previous Playoff events. It seems likely that he will move on to the second leg at TPC Boston this week if he manages to make the cut. That could be a problem, as he missed the cut at Ridgewood CC in 2008 and 2010 in his only two trips.

Geoff Ogilvy captured the Barracuda Championship by 5 points over Justin Hicks with a 14-point effort thanks to a final-round 6-under-par 33-33=66 and 49 points for the week.

This was a huge performance for Ogilvy, as he hadn't won on the PGA TOUR since the 2010 Hyundai Tournament of Champions. His final lap around Montrêux Golf and Country Club consisted of five birdies and a bogey, with a massive eagle from outside 26 feet providing the cushion he needed to cruise to the clubhouse. He also wrangled a birdie from outside 33 feet at the par-3 seventh hole earlier in the afternoon. After entering the week 151st in the FedExCup standings, he now moves to 86th. With the win, Ogilvy earns a spot in this week's PGA Championship at Valhalla.

Geoff Ogilvy bagged 12 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship by virtue of his 5-under-par 33-34=67 and leads by 3 points over Nick Watney and Jason Allred.

The Aussie circled seven birdies and squared a pair of bogeys over his 18 holes at Montrêux G&CC on Saturday afternoon. Each of his birdies fell from inside 10 feet, as proximity was his friend. Ogilvy hasn't won on the PGA TOUR since the 2010 Hyunadai Tournament of Champions. He entered this week ranked 151st in the FedExCup standings and 141st on the money list.
Aug 2 - 9:54 PM

Geoff Ogilvy cruised to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 worth 16 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

It's still a little strange to accept that the 2006 U.S. Open champ and seven-time PGA TOUR winner needs to play in Reno to fuel his eight consecutive trip to the FedExCup Playoffs. However, at 151st in points, he's certainly thankful that the opportunity exists opposite the annual points and money grab in Akron for which he didn't qualify for the second straight season. Today, he split 13 (of 14) fairways, hit 16 greens in regulation and circled eight birdies, including on three of the four par 5s.
Jul 31 - 3:49 PM

Geoff Ogilvy returns to this week's Barracuda Championship after an 11-year recess.

The Aussie enters the week 151st in the FedExCup standings, and will be looking for maximum FEC points this week as he makes his push toward the Playoffs. Ogilvy is one for two in his previous appearances at this event, but those were before the switch to the Modified Stableford scoring system. At 147th in strokes gained-putting, it's hard to imagine enough putts falling this week for him to truly make an impact. Playoff motivation is certainly on his side, though.

Geoff Ogilvy has been removed from the published field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

He tied for 55th at Congressional to end an 0-for-3 slide, but Ogilvy sits 151st in the FedExCup standings and isn't eligible for the remaining two majors or the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational, so it's anyone's guess why he's elected not to play this week. However, he's fully exempt through next season, and he's fulfilled the membership requirement of 15 starts for 2013-14 -- he's made 19 -- meaning that he could shut it down for no reason right now and it wouldn't impact his status. The Aussie has only two top 25s all season.

Geoff Ogilvy makes his sixth start at TPC Southwind in this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The Aussie missed his first four cuts before slightly improving to a T66 in 2011. He hasn't returned since, but his struggles in 2013-14 have likely forced his schedule shift back to Memphis. He's 141st in the FedExCup standings and in serious jeopardy of missing out on the Playoffs. Ogilvy missed the cut at Colonial in his last start.

Geoff Ogilvy sits 5-under-par 69-70=139 through two rounds of THE PLAYERS.

Ogilvy has managed a pair of top 15s in his last five starts, including a T14 at Quail Hollow, so his early success at TPC Sawgrass doesn't come as too much of a surprise. It's that he's been able to sustain form that deviates from his norm in the long-term. He raced out to bogey-free 5-under through 11 holes, a spurt capped by an eagle conversion from 18'11" at the par-5 second, but the Aussie closed bogey-bogey-bogey-par. He's seven strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
