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 MontrĂȘux 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. Aug 7 - 10:49 PM

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.

Geoff Ogilvy heads to Scotland this week for his 12th appearance in The Open Championship and will tee off with Bill Haas and Francesco Molinari at 13:23 local time.

The 2006 U.S. Open champion has a best Open finish of T5 and, notably, that came at St. Andrews in the 2005 edition. He missed the cut in 2010 but did post a second top 10 in The Open at Royal Lytham in 2012. The wins have dried up for the Aussie since the start of the decade although he did post a first victory in four years at last year's Barracuda Championship. Ogilvy dropped another hint that he could shine at St. Andrews again when T18 in last month's U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.

Geoff Ogilvy concluded his 115th U.S. Open with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 and is in the clubhouse at 3-over 283.

Ogilvy, the 2006 champion, started his final frame at 6-over (T39). Expectations among gamers to start the week was muted as the Aussie had missed four of his last five cuts at the U.S. Open and was also MC in his last start at the AT&T Byron Nelson. The 38-year-old was quoted early in the week however, as haven taken a liking to Chambers Bay and that obviously boded well for his mindset. On his round, he picked off 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation, overshadowing three bogeys with six birdies. His split included three consecutive birdies on Nos. 8-10 and was later culminated with a 32-foot conversion at the par-4 13th, his longest on the day. Ogilvy is currently T18 on the live leaderboard, up 21 spots. He's in position for his first top 25 at the U.S. Open since a T9 in 2008.

Geoff Ogilvy contests this week's 115th U.S. Open at Chambers Bay and shares the tee in the first two rounds with fellow U.S. Open champions Ernie Els and Retief Goosen.

Ogilvy is 6-for-11 at the U.S. Open with two top 10s, including his win in the 2006 edition at Winged Foot Golf Club in New York state. He added a T9 in 2008 but has missed cuts in four of his last six and didn't crack the top 30 in the other two. The now 38-year-old (celebrated his birthday on the 11th of June) enters the week at 139th in the FedExCup standings on limited starts in 2015, going 8-for-11, with one top 10 (T7, Wells Fargo Championship). The Aussie finished 48th in the season's first major at Augusta National and was T24 at THE PLAYERS.

Geoff Ogilvy rounded off his 11th Wells Fargo Championship with a 4-under-par 33-35=68 to post 11-under 277.

Ogilvy began the round at 7-under (T14) and too far back to contend for his ninth PGA TOUR title, but with limited starts on his season and ranked 159th in the FedExCup standings, there was plenty at stake for the Aussie. On his round he found eight (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation en route to a six birdie, one double-bogey loop. His split included four birdies from outside of 12 feet, including a 38'2" bomb on the second. With play still in progress, it remains to be seen if his double bogey-6 at the 18th will cost him a chance at a third top 10 at WFC (T10, 2004/06). He will however, log a season-best on TOUR, previously T24 at THE PLAYERS.

Geoff Ogilvy has opened the Wells Fargo Championship with a pair of 3-under-par 69s.

He's not the automatic investment of a few years ago, but Ogilvy is as automatic as it gets at Quail Hollow Club. This week's success yields his 11th payday in as many starts. Today's round featured eight birdies, including five consecutively beginning with a conversion from 22'6" at the par-4 third hole. The Aussie also rolled in a birdie from 24'6" to open his round at the par-5 10th, but his most impressive was a hole-out from a bunker nine yards away at the par-3 sixth. At 6-under 138, Ogilvy is just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Geoff Ogilvy turns his attention to TPC Sawgrass for this week's PLAYERS.

The Aussie is 6-for-13 in his career at TPC Sawgrass including a four-pack of top 25s. His most recent top 25 here came in the form of a T12 during the 2012 edition. Ogilvy has missed just two cuts on the season in seven starts, but is still in search of his first top 25. He remains a bit of a wildcard to gamers on a weekly basis.

Geoff Ogilvy tees it up for the sixth time in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at this week's Valero Texas Open.

Each of is five starts occurred in the 2015 portion of the schedule, and he has made four of his five cuts. He ranks a mere 165th in the FedExCup standings, so he's clearly still trying to get things going. He tied for 11th at TPC San Antonio last year following a T23 in 2011. It's reasonable to expect him to at least make the cut, but a stretch to place him on a top-10 finish.

Geoff Ogilvy fashioned a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

Ogilvy got after it immediately with a hole-out for eagle from the rough 13 yards away at the par-5 first hole. He'd trade two birdies with one bogey the rest of the way before signing his card sitting two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders. His birdies ranged 21 feet and 10 feet, respectively at the ninth and 17th holes. Ogilvy also rolled in a par save from 10'5" at the par-4 second.

Geoff Ogilvy carded a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open and is one-stroke off the clubhouse lead at 5-under 137.

The Aussie battled all day at TPC Scottsdale, logging five birdies and three bogeys to go with 10 pars. His 20'5" birdie from just off the green on the par-3 fourth was nice, but not as special as the 52'6" birdie bomb he stroked in with the flat stick on the par-3 seventh. Perhaps the biggest surprise is that he lost almost a stroke with the putter.

Geoff Ogilvy has found the winner's circle in two previous Hyundai Tournament of Champions trips and makes his way back to Kapalua Resort this week.

The Aussie doesn't own a perfect record at The Plantation Course but it's certainly impressive nonetheless. His first two trips yielded over-par aggregates that were still good enough for a pair of top 20s. Since then, he's posted eight straight rounds of 69 or better at this venue. After winning last season at the Barracuda Championship, it's clear that elevation changes are just fine with Ogilvy.

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.
