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. Jul 24 - 2:21 PM

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.

Geoff Ogilvy returns to Quail Hollow Club for a 12th appearance at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The Aussie enters the week with a 4-for-13 record on the season. That slots him into 191st position on the FedExCup standings. Luckily, he brings great course history with him to Charlotte, North Carolina. Ogilvy is 11-for-11 at Quail Hollow with eight top 25s. Course history buffs will want to target him in DFS this week as he sits in the bargain bin.

Geoff Ogilvy plastered a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the first day of the Zurich Classic, currently three strokes off the pace set by Brian Stuard.

The Aussie is just 3-for-12 on the season but managed to put those bad vibes in the back of his mind today. Instead he went right to work in landing 12 (of 14) fairways and splashing home a few lengthy putts to pad his scorecard. The first birdie bomb came from 47 feet on the par-4 fourth hole and he adding another from 35'2" on the par-3 14th. This will go in the books as just his 11th round in red numbers in 33 tries this season. The eight-time PGA TOUR winner could use this as a slump-busting round or return right back to his poor form so gamers should keep a close eye on the Aussie as the week progresses.
Apr 28 - 7:36 PM

Geoff Ogilvy makes his way back to Scottsdale, Arizona, for his 14th look at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The Aussie is 8-for-15 in his career at the WMPO, but he's still searching for his first top 10 at the event. To make matters worse, his game is all out of sorts currently, earning zero paychecks in five tries to kick off the new season. Gamers are taking a big risk this week if they place Ogilvy on their rosters.

Geoff Ogilvy finished 154th in the FedExCup standings last season with one top 10 (T7, Wells Fargo) on 15 starts and five missed cuts, missing the Playoffs for the first time in the FEC era.

Dating back to last season, the 38-year-old has missed five consecutive cuts on the PGA TOUR, including an 0-for-3 start in 2015-16. He posted a T14 two weeks ago at the Ho Tram Open (Asian Tour) and a T8 at the Emirates Australian Open the week prior (68-71-71-73), seven shots in arrears of champion and fellow Aussie Matt Jones.

Geoff Ogilvy gets his first look at El Camaleón Golf Club at this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba in Playa del Carmen, México.

The Americans are a perfect 8-for-8 at the OHL Classic in México. Ogilvy has a good a chance as any of the 44 internationals in the 132-man field to end that streak. Motivation should be high for the Aussie, and he's in the last season of his exemption on TOUR from winning the 2014 Barracuda Championship, his eighth title in 333 career starts. No course form to go off here as the 38-year-old makes his tournament debut, but there has been five first-time winners already this season on TOUR in as many events. On the flip side, he's missed four consecutive cuts coming into the week, including his first two starts in 2015-16.

Geoff Ogilvy gets an early start to his season when he tees it up at the Frys.com Open in Napa, California.

Ogilvy made 10 cuts on a career-low 15 starts in 2014-15 and finished 154th in the final FedExCup standings. His season best was a T7 at the Wells Fargo Championship and was his only top 10, missing the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since their inception in 2007. The Aussie remains fully exempt thru 2015-16 however, via his win at the 2014 Barracuda Championship, his eight career victory on the PGA TOUR. Ogilvy's only prior appearance in the Frys.com came in 2013 (2013-14 season) and posted a T72/MDF on rounds of 76-66-71.

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 Montrêux 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.

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.
