Ricky Barnes stumbled to a 4-over-par 37-38=75 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National and is tied for 11th at 2-under 211 with 18 to play.
It was a tough day of scoring at Congressional Country Club, but the pressure of sharing the 36-hole lead couldn't have helped matters. He never found a birdie, squaring four bogeys on the afternoon. As it stands, he's only four strokes off the lead, so a hot final round could still result in his first PGA TOUR victory. Jun 28 - 5:46 PM

Ricky Barnes added a 2-under-par 32-37=69 in his second round of the Quicken Loans National to post 6-under 136 at the midpoint, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's the third to the top of the leaderboard where he joins Australians Marc Leishman and Oliver Goss. Barnes hit only 10 greens in regulation today, but he negotiated five birdies to take the sting off three bogeys. His longest birdie measure 34 feet at the par-5 16th hole. He also poured in a par save from 18'9" at 11.

With a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Quicken Loans National, Ricky Barnes possesses early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Barnes has been scraping by all season out of the Web.com Tour reshuffle category. He's 121st in the FedExCup points standings, but it's been 11 starts since he logged the second of just two top 25s. Today at Congressional where he went out in the second threesome off the first hole, he hit 16 greens in regulation and suffered just one bogey, that a 6 at the 16th hole where his second found an up-bunker from which he didn't find the green in regulation. Elsewhere, Barnes poured in five birdies, including conversions from 18'3" and 13'3" at Nos. 8 and 13, respectively. It's his lowest aggregate in a first round since he led off a T15 at the Shriners in October with a 5-under 66.

Ricky Barnes will tee it up in his sixth Quicken Loans Invitational later this week.

Barnes has played three of his previous five editions of this event at Congressional Country Club, which is once again hosting. The good news is, each of his first three results represented incremental improvement. He tied for 66th in 2009 before sharing 49th and 29th in 2012 and 2013 respectively. He's a FedExCup bubble boy at the moment, ranking 121st in the standings and needing to remain inside the top 125 to crack the Playoffs. He tied for 46th at the Travelers Championship last week.

Ricky Barnes posted a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Barnes did all of his work after the turn at Colonial Country Club today. After going out in birdie-free 1-over, he circled birdies at 1, 3, 6 and 7 to hide a bogey-5 at the second hole. He holed out from the rough eight yards away at the par-4 third and rolled in his longest conventional conversion from 22'5" at the par-4 sixth. Barnes signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Ricky Barnes will tee it up at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Barnes enters the week ranked 114th in the FedExCup standings, but is building some momentum with three consecutive cuts made. His Quail Hollow history is a mixed bag with three missed cuts alongside one top-25 finish. Barnes deserves some attention from gamers this week, but only in deeper formats.

Ricky Barnes opened the Shell Houston Open with a 2-under-par 36-34=70.

This is good news coming off a back injury that limited him to 18 holes in San Antonio. He hit 14 greens in regulation at the Golf Club of Houston today and circled four birdies, including gems of 22'11" and 43'4" at the 18th and ninth holes, respectively. Bogeys at 14 and 3 are largely inconsequential given the relevance of our attention today.
Apr 3 - 4:33 PM

Ricky Barnes withdrew from the Valero Texas Open prior to his second round, citing personal reasons.

Barnes was scheduled to go the first tee at 1:20 p.m. CT. He opened with a 5-over-par 36-41=77. It's just his second mid-tournament WD in 164 PGA TOUR starts (2011 Humana Challenge). Today's drops him to 6-for-12 on the season. He arrived in San Antonio ranked 114th in FedExCup points. Up next on his agenda is the Shell Houston Open where he's 3-for-4 with just one top-65 finish (T40, 2010). UPDATE: Barnes later alerted his followers on Twitter of why he withdrew: "Can't wait for this week to end. 1st Grandma Passes, then have to pull out of Valero Texas Open for back acting up. #timetogetheeled [sic]"

Ricky Barnes has been added to the published field of this week's Valspar Championship.

Barnes birdied four of his last six holes in Puerto Rico on Sunday, including the closing par 5, to sneak inside the top 10 and earn the automatic exemption into the field at Copperhead. He was previously second alternate. It was his first top 10 on the PGA TOUR since the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, thus ending a drought of 58 starts. He's 2-for-3 at Innisbrook with a T28 in 2011.

Ricky Barnes signed for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Puerto Rico Open to finish the week at 15-under 273.

Barnes outpaced his two bogeys with six birdies at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, including a birdie at the par-5 18th. He is currently listed as an alternate in the Valspar Championship later this week, but is tied for sixth in Puerto Rico with players still on the course. A top 10 would mean he is exempt into the Valspar field.
Mar 9 - 4:12 PM

Ricky Barnes submitted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open and enters the finale in a tie for 10th at 11-under 205.

Nothing went particularly wrong for Barnes, as he squared just one bogey, but he managed a rather modest four birdies at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. If there was an issue, perhaps it was that he only managed to take advantage of two of the four par 5s. Never a winner on the PGA TOUR, he enters the finale five off the lead.
Mar 8 - 4:20 PM

Ricky Barnes posted another 4-under-par 68 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

He turned in respective nines of 33 and 35 today on the shoulders of five birdies against one bogey, that a 6 at the 15th hole. Barring a withdrawal or disqualification, the payday will end an 0-for-3 slide. At 8-under 136, he's four swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Ricky Barnes submitted a 4-under-par 36-32=68 for his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

It's been a bit of a struggle for Barnes in the reshuffle this year, but he arrived on the island inside the bubble at 113th in FedExCup points. Today he wrangled six birdies to offset two bogeys. He sits two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Mar 6 - 11:30 AM

Ricky Barnes has been added to the published field of this week's Honda Classic.

Barnes was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Justin Rose withdrew. The American is 4-for-8 on the season with one top 30 (T15, Shriners) and sits 103rd in FedExCup points. PGA National could provide a spark since he finished alone in fourth place three years ago, but don't hold your breath. In his other three appearance, he missed two cuts and placed solo 73rd (2012).

Ricky Barnes received a sponsor exemption to compete in this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The University of Arizona product and current resident of Phoenix is playing out of the Web.com Tour reshuffle category this season. Since the cutoff for entry fell just before the priority ranking housing his brethren, he's fortunate to crack the field of 132. Barnes is 3-for-5 on the season with just one top 30 (T15, Shriners). Any local knowledge and comfort hasn't translated at TPC Scottsdale where he hasn't finished better than T40 (2012) in his last three trips. His personal-best T14 at the WMPO occurred in 2004, or five years before he secured his first PGA TOUR card.
