Aaron Baddeley submitted a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's second round of the Travelers Championship to reach the midpoint in 6-under 134, five strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
The Aussie has only two top 30s this season, neither of which is a top 15, and sits 146th in the FedExCup standings. He's not exempt for 2015-16, but he usually figures out a way to retain status. Days like today are proof. Baddeley hit 12 greens in regulation and recorded a strokes gained: putting clip of nearly 5.000 (at last check). While he connected for an eagle hole-out from the rough 33 yards out at the par-5 sixth hole, he also poured in six birdies, all of which from outside 10 feet. His longest was his first, a 20-footer at the par-4 second hole. He also went just 2-for-6 in scrambling for four bogeys, but he's poised to turn around a forgettable season. Jun 26 - 1:07 PM

Aaron Baddeley turns his attention to this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic and slots in at 138th in the FedExCup standings.

The last time Baddeley deposited a check at the St. Jude was in 2003 and it came in the form of a T53. He's sporadically attended this event since, but he missed his other three weekends as well, bowing out early in 2013, 2009 and 2006. The 34-year-old has had a tough go of it on TOUR this season, making nine of 16 cuts with only two top 25s to show for his efforts, the last of which came eight starts ago at the Valero Texas Open (T20). The Aussie has missed the cut in five of seven events since the VTO and didn't crack the top 50 in the two starts that resulted in paydays.

Aaron Baddeley makes his way back for a ninth start at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The Aussie is still searching for a key to unlock success at Quail Hollow as he's 5-for-8 but hasn't finished any better than T40 along the way. He currently ranks sixth in strokes gained:putting, which keeps him alive in every event. On the flip side, tee-to-green is vital at Quail Hollow and Baddeley weighs in at 179th in strokes gained:tee-to-green.

With respective rounds of 70 and 67 at the RBC Heritage, Aaron Baddley is 5-under 137, just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The Aussie collected the first of his three PGA TOUR victories at Harbour Town in 2006. His overall record is solid here, but he cashed just one in his previous three visits and only for a T42 in 2013. Today, he went 4-for-5 in scrambling with one bogey again five birdies. His most notable conversions measured 17'10" and 26'5" at Nos. 12 and 7, respectively.

Aaron Baddeley answered his opening 68 at the Valero Texas Open with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in today's second round to post 5-under 139, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee this morning. Weather is measurably more favorable as compared to 24 hours ago, but Baddeley didn't take full advantage despite the red number. He split six (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation en route to five birdies, but also squared a double bogey at the par-4 15th hole and closed bogey-par-bogey on the front side of the course. What's more, three of his birdies were far from gimmes as they ran at least 10 feet. The highlight was a hole-out from off the green 14 yards away at the par-4 sixth.

Aaron Baddeley hung up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's opening round of the Valero Texas Open to assume outright possession of the clubhouse

OK. Great score and all that, but what he did at the 17th hole might be a once-in-a-lifetime experience if not less often. After pulling his tee ball at the drivable par 4, Badds was forced to swallow an unplayable lie. Now back at the tee and hitting his third, he promptly holed out from 336 yards for birdie. Remember, it's a par 4! It was his fifth birdie of the round that also featured measly conversions from 14 feet and 11'3" at the par-5 second and eighth holes, respectively. He hit 11 greens in regulation and dropped only one shot (at the par-3 seventh hole). The Aussie is 3-for-3 at TPC San Antonio with a T3 (2010) and T15 (2013), but he's logged only one top 30 all season, that a T17 in a home game in Phoenix.

Aaron Baddeley has withdrawn from this week's Valspar Championship.

Badds hasn't played since missing the cut at the Northern Trust Open three weeks ago. He's currently 105th in the FedExCup standings.

Aaron Baddeley turned in a 5-under-par 34-32=66 for his hard work in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The Aussie was in the first group off the 10th tee at TPC Scottsdale, and he finished his week at 8-under 276. His round featured six birdies to just one bogey, landing 13 GIR and picking up over two strokes with the flat stick. Highlights included a 21'3" birdie on the par-5 13th and a 49'5" bomb on the par-4 second hole. He began his week 95th in the FedExCup standings but should make a considerable leap after his performance this week.
Feb 1 - 3:40 PM

Aaron Baddeley hoisted the 2007 Waste Management Phoenix Open trophy and will attack TPC Scottsdale yet again this week.

The Scottsdale resident has enjoyed his time at this event, earning weekend tee times in eight of his 12 tries, including each of the last six. His current form is looking strong as well, as he's yet to miss a cut in four 2014-15 events. Current form, local knowledge, and course history combined this week to make Baddeley a very appealing deep-league sleeper.

Aaron Baddeley is off to a consistent start in the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, securing each of his four cuts and ranking 122nd in the FedExCup standings.

While he's seeing the tournaments through to the bitter end, the end has, indeed, been bitter. Baddeley has yet to crack the top 30 in any of his outings. He's struggled to find fairways and ranks 212th in driving accuracy. Considering he made 13 cuts and missed 11 last season, perhaps he's figured out some type of formula that will allow him to be more successful this season.

Aaron Baddeley hit the ground running with a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

He bogeyed the par-4 first, so his motion began with a stumble, but Badds picked off a field-tying-high eight birdies at El Camaleón Golf Club today. They also helped offset a double bogey at the par-3 10th hole. He signed his card sitting one strokes back of sextuple clubhouse leaders. It's his lowest first round with he cracked open his 2013 season with a 64 at the Humana Challenge.

Aaron Baddeley toured Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course in 3-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic and finished two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Badds recorded six red numbers in his first two starts, but he placed outside the top 30 in both. He's evolved into a serviceable own over the years, but probably comes across as an underachiever to the masses. Today was quite something, however, as he converted two eagle-3s. The first was a bit unexpected as he holed out from 14 yards from a lie off the green at the seventh hole. The second was a traditional conversion at No. 15, this time from 43'2". Elsewhere, the Aussie traded one birdie with two bogeys. Today's aggregate is his lowest in a first round since he carded the same en route to a solo fourth-place finish at the Travelers Championship in June.

Aaron Baddeley closed out his week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round.

The Aussie picked up an eagle and five birdies on his last lap around TPC Summerlin, handing back a pair of bogeys in the process. With the exception of a 12'3" birdie at the par-4 fourth hole, all of his par breakers fell from inside of five feet. He gained well over three strokes tee-to-green while losing ground with the flat stick in Sunday's finale. He ends the tournament at 9-under 275.

Aaron Baddeley posted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Frys.com Open.

Badds concluded the 2013-14 season with five consecutive missed cuts and hadn't scored this low since a third-round 65 at the Travelers Championship in June. So, if you're debating whether there's not enough of a break between seasons, cite the Aussie as Exhibit A as one that probably doesn't mind the reset that it provides regardless of the calendar. In vintage form, he split only five (of 14) fairways, but landed 13 greens and converted seven birdies. Five of the par breakers fell in from outside 10 feet, including a seven-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 fourth hole and 21-footer at the par-3 seventh. However, his strokes gained-putting clip read just 1.344 at last check because he three-putted thrice from inside seven feet. The only relevant number that matters right now, however, is his deficit. He sits only two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Aaron Baddeley looks to improve on his 2013-14 results this season, and it all begins at the Frys.com Open this week.

The Aussie was 114th in the FedExCup standings last season, which wasn't his best by any stretch. He struggles with consistency. That makes him an interesting investment in full-season formats. Baddeley has experienced several highs in in career, including PGA TOUR wins in 2006, 2007 and 2011. He was also a member of the 2011 Presidents Cup. Needless to say, he has the game to do big things if he remains focused on the task at hand.
