World No. 245 Aaron Baddeley authored a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in today's final round of the Barbasol Championship to match Si Woo Kim's 72-hole aggregate of 18-under 266, and then eliminated the second-year pro with birdie-3 on the fourth hole of sudden death.
Playing this season on Past Champion status, the 35-year-old claims his fourth PGA TOUR title in his 354th career start (345 pro), and first since the 2011 Northern Trust Open, 135 events ago. With the win, he collects 300 FedExCup points, is projected to jump to 41st in the FEC standings, and earns a two-year exemption on TOUR. The Aussie began the finale in a two-way T2 on 13-under after opening his second appearance in 70-66-64, three back of 54-hole leader Jhonattan Vegas. Playing out of the final threesome, he squashed a lone bogey-5 at the 15th with birdies on Nos. 4, 7, 16 and 17 and an eagle on the par-5 fifth. Baddeley had a chance from 13'8" on the 72nd hole to win in regulation, but missed. In the playoff, the duo matched pars on the first two tours of the par-4 18th, and pars on the par-3 17th, before Baddeley claimed the title on the third playing of the 18th. He improves to 1-1 in sudden death, having lost the 2003 Sony Open in extra time. Jul 17 - 6:42 PM

The third round of the Barbasol Championship in Opelika, Alabama, resumed as scheduled at 7:30 a.m. CT Sunday morning with 43 (of 82) golfers needing to complete their respective rounds.

A total of 82 players made the 36-hole cut on 2-under 140 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will come after 54 holes. One of those who were fortunate enough to complete their third rounds on Saturday was Aaron Baddeley, who finished T10 here in last year's inaugural edition. Playing this season on Past Champion status, the 35-year-old won't have to worry about the secondary cut as he's currently solo third on the leaderboard, up 13 spots after a 7-under-par 32-32=64. UPDATE: With play completed, Baddeley is in a two-way T2, three back of 54-hole leader Jhonattan Vegas.

Aaron Baddeley smoothed a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National to post 6-under 207, up 39 spots on the live leaderboard to T8 and good for the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Ernie Els shot a 65 for the low round of the day.

This is the 35-year-old's seventh QL National with a best of T16 in 2010 at Aronimink GC. Today's 66 is his best lap in 23 tournament rounds, surpassing 68 three times, most recently, yesterday, after an opening 73. The Aussie mustered six (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR and 2.514 SG: Putting. He circled Nos. 1, 4, 12, 13 and 16, each from inside of eight feet, with a long of 29'6" at the par-5 ninth. Baddeley's lone bogey came at the par-4 11th after hitting his tee ball in the water.

Aaron Baddeley ranks 84th in FedExCup points ahead of his sixth AT&T Byron Nelson.

The 35-year-old is playing this season on Past Champion status. He arrives off a missed cut at THE PLAYERS where he got in as an alternate. Three starts prior, the Aussie posted a T9 at the Heritage on a sponsor exemption, his fourth top 10 of the season on 16 starts. Baddeley missed the cut here last year by one (71-68) after a personal-best T29 in 2014.

Aaron Baddeley enjoyed a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to reach the three-quarter mark on 6-under 210, vaulting 48 places on the leaderboard to T12, and tied for the low lap in R3 with Nick Taylor.

Baddeley was T2 thru 36 holes here last year (68-71), but played the weekend in 76-75 for T20. On the bright side, it was his third top 20 in four visits to TPC San Antonio with a best of T3 in 2010, the inaugural at the current venue. At the prior host across town (La Cantera GC), he posted solo fifth in 2003, with career-best 62s in Rds. 1 and 4. Today's lap came after making the 36-hole cut on the number (74-70), and began off No. 10 tee with bogey-5. Baddeley rebounded with back-to-backs on 11 and 12, and 16 and 17 to turn 3-under. He came home in 3-under, erasing bogey-4 at 7 with back-to-backs again on 1 and 2, and further par breakers on 5 and 8. Six of his eight conversions traveled less than nine feet with a long of 24'1" at the par-3 16th.
Apr 23 - 7:48 PM

Past champ Aaron Baddeley crafted a bogey-free 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's final round of the RBC Heritage to finish off his 12th appearance on 3-under 281, up 12 spots to T12 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Baddeley finished T9, gaining him an exemption into this week's Valero if not already in on merit.

Baddeley hasn't won on TOUR since the 2011 Northern Trust but the first of his three victories came here in 2006 in his second visit. Playing this week on a sponsor exemption, he began Sunday's play T24 on even-par after opening in 71-69-73. The 35-year-old landed eight (of 14) fairways and managed nine greens in regulation, and at last check, posted 1.186 strokes gained tee-to-green and 3.110 in strokes gained: putting. He circled birdies on holes 5, 13 and 17 highlighted by a 20'3" roll at the latter. The Aussie also dropped four par putts from between five and 18 feet.

Aaron Baddeley styled a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the opening round of this week's Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach.

The Aussie opened his round with a bogey at the par-4 first hole before bouncing back with a couple of birdies. He squared another bogey, this time at the par-4 fourth after an errant tee shot forced him to take a drop. Making the turn at 2-under 34, Baddeley only had three pars on his card. The back nine was much smoother as he went blemish-free, adding an eagle from off the green at the par-5 15th as well as two more birdies on the last two of his day. Baddeley is making his course debut this week, but is having no trouble adapting so far.

Aaron Baddeley, playing his 14th season on the PGA TOUR on Past Champion status, gets ready for his 10th Arnold Palmer Invitational at the Bay Hill Club and Lodge.

Baddeley has enjoyed success in invitationals before, winning the first (of three) TOUR titles at the 2006 RBC Heritage. He's 7-for-9 at Arnie's Invite with three top 25s, the most recent being T12 in 2011. The 34-year-old, who celebrates his birthday on Mar. 17th, also has a pair of top 10s, but not since a tourney-best T5 in 2005. His season results are quite similar to his API results, cashing seven times in nine starts with two top 25s doubling as top 10s. His season best is T4 at the Sanderson Farms and in his last action four weeks ago, posted a T26 at the Northern Trust (71-68-70-70).

Aaron Baddeley carved out a 4-over-par 36-40=76 in the two-day final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to wrap his 13th appearance at 1-under 287, currently T11 on the live leaderboard. UPDATE: With play completed, Baddeley settled into a five-way T8 for his second top 10 of the season on six starts.

Baddeley had four holes to complete on Monday and posted par-par-bogey-par. He got in the field via a sponsor exemption and made the most of it with rounds of 73-69-69-76. The Aussie, who's playing this season on Past Champion status, has shown his wares in windy conditions before, opening last year's wind-swept Valero Texas Open -- with 40-mph winds -- in 4-under 68, one of just three rounds in the 60s of 144 players. During that round, he famously had a 336-yard birdie at the drivable par-4 17th. After his tee shot went into the woods and unplayable, he returned to the tee box and holed it. The 34-year-old makes the quick turnaround and heads to this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Opening-round co-leader Aaron Baddeley back-pedaled to 2-over-par 37-36=73 in today's second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Despite last week's T4 and his opening 65 at El Camaleón, today's performance is more of what we've come to anticipate from the Aussie in recent years. He sunk three birdies today, but also squared as many bogeys and added a double bogey at the par-4 sixth hole. He totaled only 10 greens in regulation and couldn't recover. So, at 4-under 138, Baddeley is eight shots off the 36-hole lead and tied for 37th place entering the weekend.

Aaron Baddeley hung up a 6-under-par 31-34=65 for his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, good for a share of the clubhouse lead with Justin Leonard.

Both will await to see how leader Shawn Stefani scores on his final hole, but neither will gripe about today's success. Baddeley might feel more fortunate, however, as he missed seven greens in regulation but limited the negative to a lone bogey at the par-4 third hole. Elsewhere, he connected for seven birdies. At last check, the Aussie ranked fifth in putts per GIR at 1.455. The 34-year-old is in the field on his top 10 (T4) at the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Aaron Baddeley shot a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to conclude his third appearance at 16-under 272, one shot back of 72-hole clubhouse leader William McGirt. UPDATE: Baddeley finished T4 and subsequently accepted the top-10 exemption into this week's OHL Classic.

The last of Baddeley's three PGA TOUR victories came at the 2011 Northern Trust Open. He's not going to end that drought this week, but considering he logged just one top 10 last season on 25 starts (T10, Barbasol Championship), his current T5 was a really important finish playing out of the Past Champion category. Baddeley began the finale at 12-under (T8) and two adrift. He opened with three two-putt pars and a scrambling par at the fourth before back-to-back circles at Nos. 5 and 6 from 4'2 and 9'6", respectively, to turn 2-under. The 34-year-old joined the lead at 16-under (McGirt) with a 10'5" roll for birdie-2 at the 10th and a 23-footer finding the bottom of the cup at the par-4 12th. Baddeley, who was No. 1 on TOUR last season in strokes gained: putting and no worse than ninth over the past four seasons, uncharacteristically three-putted the 13th from 37'5" to square his only bogey.

Aaron Baddeley hung up a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64 in today's opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

The tendency would be to lead off with the fact that the Aussie also set the course record by one stroke, but scoring has been so low this morning that it's possible that the bar will be lowered again today. In the meantime, bask in his series of conversions that included an eagle-2 from the rough 38 yards away at the 15th hole. Baddeley also circled six birdies, five of which from outside 10 feet. His longest taped off at 22'11" at the par-3 fourth hole. When the applause from this clinic ended, he led the field in strokes gained: putting at 3.880 and in putts per greens in regulation at 1.385. Oh, Badds went 5-for-5 in scrambling, too.

Aaron Baddeley makes his eighth career appearance at the Frys.com Open and cracks this week's field via Past Champion status.

Baddeley made 25 starts last season and cashed 13 times with just one top 10 (T10, Barbasol Championship). He concluded the regular season 157th in the FedExCup standings, missing the Playoffs for the first time since their inception. The 34-year-old finished No. 1 on the PGA TOUR in strokes gained: putting but 176th in strokes gained: tee-to-green. In an attempt to regain his TOUR status, the Aussie went the Web.com Tour Finals route and played in all four events, posting CUT-T30-CUT-T30 to finish 71st on the Finals money list. Baddeley has played the Frys.com seven times prior, making three cuts. His best was T11 in the 2008 on the Raptor Course at Grayhawk GC. In last year's inaugural at Silverado Resort, he went T31 on rounds of 68-73-72-70.

Aaron Baddeley enters his seventh Wyndham Championship ranked 152nd in the FedExCup standings and is on pace to miss the FedExCup Playoffs for the first time since their inception in 2007.

Baddeley has played in six Wyndham's, three at the current venue of Sedgefield Country Club. In those three editions, he missed the cut in 2013 and 2014 and posted a T53 in 2010. His best showing (T31) came in 2006 at Forest Oaks CC. The Aussie enters the week 152nd in the FEC standings going 13-for-24 on the season with one top 10, a T10 at the opposite-field Barbasol Championship. He chased the Barbasol with two missed cuts and a T46 at the Quicken Loans National. The 34-year-old ranks second on TOUR in strokes gained: putting but 189th in strokes gained: tee-to-green.
