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. Aug 28 - 9:02 AM

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.
Aug 3 - 6:03 PM

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.
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.
Jun 30 - 11:09 AM

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.
Jun 2 - 11:03 PM

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.
Mar 26 - 3:40 PM

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.
