Jonathan Byrd is scheduled to compete in this week's Quicken Loans National.
There was some confusion at last week's RBC Canadian Open over whether Byrd was in the field, but he finished the week as first alternate. He was the last man to qualify at the commitment deadline at Glen Abbey, and then five top 10s at the Barbasol Championship bumped him (and four others, of course) from the field. He was the only originally exempt golfer not to regain entry. This week at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, Byrd was third alternate. Six withdrawals paved the way for guaranteed entry. He's 165th in the FedExCup standings but recorded top 25s in two of his last three starts. Jul 27 - 12:50 PM

Jonathan Byrd followed his opening 63 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round.

This was a bit sloppy after Byrd enjoyed a career-tying-low on Thursday. He piped only eight (of 14) fairways and hit just 12 greens in regulation on a gettable Old White TPC today. He'd squared three bogeys, including a 15-footer at the par-4 fifth, and three of his four birdies found the cup from outside 11 feet. At 8-under 132, the 37-year-old is just one shot off the pace of the 36-hole co-leaders.
Jul 3 - 7:10 PM

Jonathan Byrd spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Oh, them breaks. Byrd tied his career low today and doesn't even share the lead in his own wave. This is the sixth time he's signed for a 63 in 1,088 career rounds on the PGA TOUR. He hit 13 greens in regulation and converted seven birdies. Three of them found the cup from outside 17 feet, the round-long measuring 36'9" at the par-4 10th hole. He also recorded a zero-putt six-yarder for birdie at the par-4 11th. Byrd's greatest test to keep his scorecard clean was fulfilled when he rolled in a five-yarder for par from the fringe at the par-4 seventh. At last check, he ranked sixth in both strokes-gained stats. At 166th in the FedExCup standings, today's success couldn't have come at a better time. Now comes the hard part, to make it count.

Jonathan Byrd has joined the field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

He was fourth alternate when the field was released, but Byrd was handed a sponsor exemption to eliminate the wait. He's competed in every edition of the tournament, trading two top 25s with three missed cuts. On conditional status this season, he's cashed in just half of his 16 starts and sits 166th in the FedExCup standings as he's still chasing his first top-15 finish.

Jonathan Byrd is scheduled to compete in this week's Travelers Championship.

Byrd was the second alternate when the field was released. He gained entry when four others withdrew. The 37-year-old has been grinding out a season on conditional status, but he's fared no better than T40 (Memorial) in his last eight starts. At 163rd in the FedExCup standings, he'll need to get a move on to qualify for the Playoffs. Alas, if he's interested in tapping into success at TPC River Highlands, he'll need a strong drill. Byrd is just 3-for-7 here with only one top 40, and that was in 2003 (T26).

Jonathan Byrd stapled up a 3-under-par 35-32=67 for his opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and sits five strokes off the overnight lead.

In need of a big move in the FedExCup standings where he's currently 163rd, the five-time PGA TOUR member laid a brick for the foundation of the possibility this week. He exchanged six birdies with three bogeys at TPC Four Seasons today. Two of his birdies ranged 11-13 feet, but his longest conversion disappeared for par from 12'7" at the par-4 ninth hole where he concluded his round.

Jonathan Byrd is in the published field at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and arrives 163rd in the FedExCup standings.

Byrd is in the AT&T Byron Nelson on conditional status so he has to make the most of his opportunities when he gets them. To date this season, he hasn't, going 6-for-12 with zero top 10s and swallowing four missed cuts in his last five events. The 37-year-old trunk-slammed at last year's Byron Nelson (by six strokes) in his first trip back since a T69-finish in 2009. Byrd is a five-time winner on the PGA TOUR but his last victory came at the season-opening Hyundai TOC in 2011, 100 starts ago.

Jonathan Byrd has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Byrd was fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he was given one of the two remaining sponsor exemptions into the field of 156. He missed the cut last week at Harbour Town to extend his skid to three consecutive MCs. Now 162nd in the FedExCup standings, the early flame that he lit this season has dimmed. He's 1-for-3 at TPC Louisiana, but that lone payday was seven years ago when he tied for 12th.

Jonathan Byrd looks to improve upon his 159th ranking in the FedExCup standings at this week's RBC Heritage.

Only playing with conditional status, Byrd got into the field through sponsor exemption. He will have a bit of a following this week as his South Carolina and Clemson roots run deep. Local knowledge hasn't helped him here in the past as he owns just one top 25 in 12 attempts.

Jonathan Byrd recorded a hole-in-one at the par-3 15th hole in his second round of the Valspar Championship, but still missed the cut on the number.

Byrd was 5-over through 32 holes and destined for the weekend off anyway, but he made it interesting. Wielding a 4-iron from the left side of the tee box on the 211-yard hole, his ball landed just short of its target and rolled in. (You can view it at the link below.) The only thing unconventional about it was its rarity. It's the 18th ace on the PGA TOUR this season. There were 17 all of 2013-14. He then parred Nos. 16 and 17 before burying a walk-off birdie from 21-and-a-half feet at the par-4 18th to post 2-over 74-70=144. Adding salt into the wound, this is the first time that the 37-year-old has missed the cut in 12 appearances at Copperhead.
Mar 13 - 8:02 PM

Jonathan Byrd settled for an even-par 36-36=72 in his third round of the Puerto Rico Open.

He hit only 11 greens in regulation and wiped away three birdies with as many bogeys. At 3-under 213, he's only three strokes off the 54-hole clubhouse lead. Byrd's last top 10 was a T3 at the Barracuda Championship last summer. Like the PRO, that's also an opposite event where the distribution of FedExCup points is about three-fifths that of a regular PGA TOUR stop.
Mar 7 - 3:43 PM

Jonathan Byrd chased his opening 70 at the Puerto Rico Open with a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in today's second round to post 3-under 141 at the midpoint, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Byrd went out in the second threesome off the first tee at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today, so his aggregate is unlikely to go in the books as the 36-hole target. However, he's where he needs to be entering the weekend. He hit 12 greens in regulation and covered four bogeys with five birdies today.
Mar 6 - 11:07 AM

Jonathan Byrd signed for a 2-under-par 35-35=70 following his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Byrd is one of the more contemporary notables in the field, but he has conditional status, so this is a must-start for the veteran. He enjoyed top 15s in his first two trips to Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, so it makes sense that he got off to a good start today. Byrd striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens en route to four birdies against two bogeys.
Mar 5 - 3:32 PM

Jonathan Byrd returns to Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico for his third Puerto Rico Open.

The veteran has fared well on his first two trips, tying for 13th in 2009 before returning with a T12 in 2014. He possesses only conditional status in 2014-15, so his starts have been few and far between. He last popped up at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, where he tied for 65th.

Mar 3 - 8:31 PM

Jonathan Byrd has wiggled into the field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Byrd was the seventh alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when former alternate D.H. Lee withdrew and sixth alternate Scott Gardiner passed on filling the void. Byrd hasn't played since concluding the fall with a pair of top 25s. He's 109th in the FedExCup standings. That's solid given he's playing this season on conditional status. This will be his eighth start at Torrey Pines where he's survived five cuts but hasn't finished inside the top 35.
