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. Jul 30 - 10:49 AM

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.
May 9 - 6:28 PM

Geoff Ogilvy settled on a 2-under-par 25-25=70 in his third round of the Quail Hollow Championship.

The Aussie's scorecard saw plenty of action, circling five birdies and handing two bogeys on his lap around Quail Hollow. Four of his five birdies were inside four feet, with none longer than 7'1", so he was an opportunist. Perhaps it's no surprise that he lost just shy of a stroke with the putter. At 7-under 209, he will enter the final round safely inside the top 10. Should he remain there, it would be his first of the season.
May 3 - 5:13 PM

Geoff Ogilvy fashioned a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Well, of course he did. The Aussie opened the week with one of the most lopsided tandem of splits on the PGA TOUR. His 73.08 scoring average in the opening round ranked 202nd, but his 70.15 clip in the second round placed him T23. Lo and behold, he carded an even-par 72 on Thursday at Quail Hollow and has just one red number in 14 lid-lifters this season. Today's under-par aggregate is his 10th in a second round. He hit 13 greens and circled seven birdies, four of which from outside 11 feet. The gems measured 28'8" at the first hole and 21'8" at No. 8. He also rolled in a 10-footer for bogey at the par-3 second. Ogilvy is 5-under 139 at the break, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He has one top 25 in 2013-14 (T11, Valero).
May 2 - 1:00 PM

Geoff Ogilvy arrived at the midpoint of the RBC Heritage in 2-under-par 72-68=140, just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Aussie is 5-for-11 on the season with a T11 at the Valero Texas Open three weeks ago, so it's turning into yet another forgettable chapter in a career that peaked years ago. But you never know in this game. Today's walk around Harbour Town was highlighted by five birdies, including a conversion from 18'3" at the par-4 16th hole and a walk-off hole-out from a greenside bunker 13 yards away at the par-4 18th. His only gaffe was a biggie, however. After missing the green short and left of the par-4 10th, it took him two swings to find the putting surface on which he two-putted from 50 inches.
Apr 18 - 1:30 PM

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.

Ogilvy'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.
Mar 29 - 4:12 PM

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.
Jan 15 - 9:18 PM

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.
