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 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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
