Aaron Baddeley begins The Barclays ranked 102nd in the FedExCup standings.
He doesn't need to do anything overly dramatic to sneak inside the top 100 and advance to the Deutsche Bank Championship, but he probably shouldn't make any dinner reservations just yet. In his two previous trips to Ridgewood CC, he missed the cut in 2008 and improved slightly to a T56 in 2010. Adding to the drama, he's missed his last four cuts on the PGA TOUR. Aug 20 - 9:31 PM

Aaron Baddeley will have a crack at Royal Montreal Golf Club’s Blue Course at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The Aussie was swinging a hot club prior to his missed cut at the Quicken Loans National. Three of his last six starts have yielded a top 30, including a fourth place finish at the Travelers Championship. Baddeley rarely has any troubles with the putter but his week will largely be dependent on his tee-to-green game, where he currently ranks 179th in greens in regulation.
Jul 22 - 12:25 PM

Aaron Baddeley closed out the week with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Travelers Championship.

Playing in the final group, Badds circled two birdies in the first seven holes to find himself on top of the leaderboard. Things got away from the Aussie on the par-3 11th when he found his tee shot in a green side bunker, leading to his first bogey of the day. He followed it up with bogey on the next hole before collecting birdies on the 13th and 17th holes. Baddeley stepped on the 18th tee box needing a birdie to force a playoff with Kevin Streelman. His errant tee shot gave him a poor lie, ultimately bogeying the hole and settling for a 13-under 267, good enough for a 4th place finish.

Aaron Baddeley submitted a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach the 54-hole mark as the clubhouse leader at 12-under 198.

Baddeley split just eight (of 14) fairways but recovered to find 14 greens in regulation. He played the first 11 holes bogey-free before giving one back on the par-4 12th. He circled two more birdies before walking off the 18th green as the 54-hole clubhouse leader. Baddeley's last win came at the 2011 Northern Trust Open.
Jun 21 - 5:11 PM

Aaron Baddeley reached the midpoint of the Travelers Championship in 7-under-par 67-66=133 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Badds has wiped away three bogeys with an eagle-3 (at the sixth hole in the second round) and eight birdies. Today's longest conversion measured 20'8" for birdie at the par-3 eighth hole. This is his fifth consecutive payday, but he's still in pursuit of his first top 20 since a T18 at the Northern Trust Open in mid-February. The Aussie seems quite content will his role among the rank and file. With over $16.675 million in PGA TOUR earnings at just 33 years of age, it's understandable.

Aaron Baddeley fashioned a 3-under-par 40-29=69 in his opening round of the Memorial.

As those nines suggest, this was everything but an uneventful day for the Aussie. He birdied both par 5s on the back side of Muirfield Village where he began his round, but Baddeley also squared four bogeys and a double. Naturally then, he unlocked the code coming in with seven birdies, including five straight to conclude his walk. His longest par breakers measured 27'1", 10'4" and 23'4" at Nos. 2, 6 and 9, respectively. He's three strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.
May 29 - 4:59 PM

Aaron Baddeley has been added to the published field of this week's Memorial.

Baddeley was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Patrick Reed withdrew. The Aussie has only two top 40s in 12 appearances at Muirfield Village, but both are T9s, the latter occurring in 2012. He could use some of that mojo as he's gone eight starts this season without a top 25 and sits 116th in the FedExCup standings.
May 27 - 11:06 AM

Aaron Baddeley reached the midpoint of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial in 5-under-par 68-67=135 and sits two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Badds' only top 15 of the season came way back at the CIMB Classic in November. He's added just one top 25, that a T18 at the Northern Trust Open which also happens to be the last time he opened an event with sub-70s. He went just 2-for-4 in scrambling today, but circled five birdies, including conversions from 31'1" and 11'1" at the 16th and 18th holes, respectively.
May 23 - 6:14 PM

Aaron Baddeley fashioned a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The Aussie is riding an 0-for-3 slide and hasn't offered anything of note since a T18 at the Northern Trust Open. He's 121st in the FedExCup standings. Today in Texas, he went 4-for-13 in birdie chances, dropping in tries from 26'5" at the 10th hole and 18'1" at 16. Baddeley added a par save fr4om 12'8" at No. 11. He signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
May 15 - 3:15 PM

Aaron Baddeley will attempt to rebound this week at THE PLAYERS.

Baddeley has found himself in contention here more than a few times. He posted top 10s in 2011 and 2009. In 2007, he also entered Sunday inside the top 5 before ballooning to 37th place thanks to a final round 5-over-par 77. On the flip side, he has also missed five cuts at TPC Sawgrass, and has played the par 4s at 23-over-par during his last two visits.
May 6 - 10:44 AM

Aaron Baddeley carded a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in his second round of the Valero Texas Open, reaching the midpoint in 3-under 141, five strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit only 10 greens in regulation today, but limited the damage to two bogeys, the second of which at the par-5 eighth hole, the penultimate of his round. Badds hit the ground running with three birdies on his first five holes, but his only notable conversion disappeared for par from 13 feet at 17.
Mar 28 - 8:02 PM

Aaron Baddeley turned in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 for his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Badds already has a T3 (2010) and T15 (2013) in two appearances at TPC San Antonio, but it's unlikely that he's wrapped many rounds in his life like today's. After hiding a lone bogey at the par-4 fourth hole with 11-foot birdie conversions at 3 and 5, and adding a 10'5" birdie at 16, he arrived at the par-5 18th in 2-under. Fast forward to his third shot that found a greenside bunker. The Aussie then failed to exit with his fourth, only to hole out for par from the sand. He walked off two strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.
Mar 27 - 4:07 PM

Aaron Baddeley sits at 6-under-par 210 through 54 holes on the heels of a 2-under 36-34=70 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Aussie has been on point with his ball-striking this week, splitting 32 of 42 fairways and landing 39 GIR. Today's lap at Bay Hill featured three birdies and one bogey, with his 14 pars the order of the day. His best finish of 2013-14 came back at the CIMB Classic late in 2013, but he is well on his way towards posted a second top 10 if he can finish strong on Sunday.
Mar 22 - 4:56 PM

Aaron Baddeley found his patented touch with the putting in the second round of the Northern Trust Open en route to a 6-under-par 33-32=65.

Badds split only four (of 14) fairways and hit just 11 greens in regulation, but he limited the damage to two bogeys while picking off eight birdies. Four of his par breakers disappeared from outside 13 feet, the longest of which ending his round from 25'6" at the par-4 18th hole. He also poured in par saves from 10 feet and 19'1" at Nos. 6 and 7, respectively. He didn't miss from inside 10 feet. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting split sat just north of 6.000, but it's climbed to as high as 6.445 since. It's one of the highest single-round measurements we've ever seen.
Feb 14 - 4:33 PM

Aaron Baddeley stumbled to a 4-over-par 38-38=76 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open, falling one-stroke shy of the 54-hole cut at 4-over 220.

The Aussie has some fine company, with Camilo Villegas (221), Brice Garnett (221), Tim Herron (221), Steven Bowditch (221), Will Claxton (221), Bobby Gates (222), Tiger Woods (222) and Michael Block (229) all missing out on Sunday tee times as well. 73 players will compete in the final round of the FIO on Torrey Pines South.
