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.

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.

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.

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.

Aaron Baddeley narrowly retained his PGA TOUR card for the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, finishing 101st in the FedExCup standings and 113th on the money list in 2013.

Badds has built an early cushion this season, tying for fifth at the CIMB Classic and sharing 40th at The McGladrey Classic after an early missed cut at the Open. He also tied for 27th in his native Australia when he was in the area for the Emirates Australian Open. Savvy golf fans know his deal. He's going to putt the lights out, but his accuracy tee-to-green as always been his question mark. In 2013, he was 179th in driving accuracy and 178th in GIR. Conversely, he's up to 148th and 141st in those respective categories this season.

Aaron Baddeley concluded the CIMB Classic with a 6-under-par 32-34=66 to post 12-under 276, good for sole possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

Golf mercifully resumed in Kuala Lumpur after a delay of three hours and five minutes. Baddeley opened his final round with a bogey-5 at the first hole, but kept his card blemish-free, finding seven birdies along the way. He squared only six bogeys all week and will rebound from a season-opening missed cut at the Open with a top 10 here. Given that he cashed only 10 of 24 times during the 2013 season, gamers can't quite feel comfortable jumping on his bandwagon just yet, but those that were already on board are treated to a cookie in Malaysia.

Aaron Baddeley is set to tee it up at Kualu Lumpur Golf & Country Club’s West Course for the CIMB Classic.

Baddeley enters off a rough season on the PGA TOUR where he finished 101st on the FedExCup Playoffs Points list, failing to make it to the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. He opened his 2013-14 season with a missed cut at the Open, and has dropped all the way to 205th in the Official World Golf Rankings.

Aaron Baddeley has an opportunity to turn around a disappointing season to date at The Barclays this week.

The Aussie made an uncharacteristic nine of 23 cuts this year, explaining his 119th standing in the FedExCup Playoffs. He’s missed 12 of his last 13 cuts this season, with a T9 at the RBC Canadian Open serving as the eye of the storm.

Aaron Baddeley concluded his week at the RBC Canadian Open with a 4-under-par 32-36=68, wrapping up his tournament as the first in the clubhouse at 11-under 277.

Bads entered this tournament 123rd in the FedExCup standings and in serious jeopardy of missing out on the Playoffs. While there are still players on the course at Glen Abbey, his round of five birdies and one bogey appears to have secured his spot in the field at The Barclays. His ball-striking is still a cause for concern. He split just 39.29 percent of his fairways and landed 54.17 percent of his GIR, but was leading the field in strokes gained-putting at the time he posted his final tally.

Aaron Baddeley answered his opening 68 at the RBC Canadian Open with another in today's second round to post 8-under 136 and sit five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Since he survived his first cut in 11 starts, he might as well do it with a bang. Badds has hit only 21 greens in regulation thus far, but he ranked third in strokes gained-putting -- surprise, surprise -- with a clip north of 2.950 for 36 holes at the time he signed his card today. He went 8-for-9 in scrambling in the second round and circled five birdies, three of which dropping in from 10-16 feet. He also poured in a par save from 11'2" at 5.

Aaron Baddeley turned in a 4-under-par 32-36=68 for his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, finishing three strokes back of the clubhouse lead.

Given the Aussie has missed 10 straight cuts and has only one top 10 this season, it's hard to believe that he's 123rd in FedExCup points. He's also not yet exempt for 2013-14, so the pressure is on. He responded like a veteran today, going 7-for-12 in birdie opportunities to offset three bogeys. His notable par breakers -- all birdies -- measured 27 feet, 12'4" and 19'9" at the first, fourth and 15th holes, respectively. He added a par save from 10'3" at 12. This is his lowest opening round in 20 starts.

Aaron Baddeley returns to The Greenbrier Classic after a two-year absence.

Baddeley played The Old White TPC in 2010, sharing 36th in the first edition of the young event. At 114th in the FedExCup rankings, it's likely he is returning to West Virginia somewhat out of desperation. He must remain inside the top 125 to lock up a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card and a spot in the field at The Barclays.

Aaron Baddeley enters the Memorial having missed his most recent three cuts this season.

The Aussie’s record at Muirfield Village has its share of highlights, sharing ninth last year. He’s made eight of his 11 cuts in this event, with both of his top 25s also going for top 10s. He’s only a valuable investment in deeper formats.

Aaron Baddeley sneaks into the Zurich Classic of New Orleans a little under the radar.

The Aussie has made his last three cuts, with a T15 at the Valero Texas Open the highlight. He’s only played TPC Louisiana one time, and that resulted in a T28 in 2010. He’s 180th in ball-striking and sixth in strokes gained-putting. That needs no further explanation.
