Ricky Barnes enters his sixth Waste Management Phoenix Open after missing the cut in his only two start of 2015.
Barnes last cashed at the 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba, when he tied for 16th. Ultimately, he enters this week 147th in the FedExCup standings largely because of Mayakoba. He's made four of his five cuts at TPC Scottsdale, so it stands to reason the he might get back on track in the Arizona desert. His best finish was a T14 all the way back in 2004. Jan 26 - 8:16 PM

Ricky Barnes final 2014-15 PGA TOUR start before the holiday break went for a T16 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

That was easily his best result of the early going, with a T65 in the no-cut CIMB Classic his only other payday in four attempts. That places Barnes 118th in the FedExCup standings. He ended the 2013-14 FEC Playoffs ranked 113th, meaning he is currently slotted into a familiar territory. There is no reason to suspect a season any better than the ordinary, as his value now is right on par with expectations.

Ricky Barnes makes his way back to El Camaleón Golf Club for his third attempt at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Barnes has signed for just one red number in six rounds at the resort. His start to the 2014-15 campaign has been lackluster, with a pair of missed cuts to go along with a T65 finish. Gamers could take a look in salary-cap formats if they wanted a proven veteran that may benefit from a weak field, but Barnes is far from a guarantee this week.

Ricky Barnes returns to Las Vegas, Nevada, for this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Barnes is 4-for-6 with three finishes of T33 or better at TPC Summerlin. The University of Arizona product and California native is very familiar with the west-coast course layouts. After finishing the 2013-14 campaign with 13 of 15 cuts made, he missed the cut in his season debut last week. Look for Barnes to get back on track this week, but gamers should also keep their expectations reasonable.

Ricky Barnes enters The Barclays with a second chance at Ridgewood Country Club.

Barnes is just 1-for-3 at The Barclays and 4-for-7 overall in his Playoff career. At 105th in the FedExCup standings, anything less than strong finish will put an end to his 2014 season. Barnes failed to earn a weekend tee time in his 2010 Ridgewood debut, and gamers should not be surprised to see a repeat of 2010.

Ricky Barnes enjoyed a 4-under-par 35-31=66 for his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

After a one-year hiatus from qualifying, Barnes will return to the FedExCup Playoffs. He's registered two top 10s and sits 112th in the standings. In today's opening primer at Sedgefield, he holed five birdies against one bogey and finished with a strokes gained-putting split north of 3.805, highest in the field at the time he signed his card. His conversions included birdies from 12'1", 29'11" and 10'6" at Nos. 1, 9 and 13, respectively. He also saved par from 11'8" at the par-4 fourth. Barnes sits two strokes in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Ricky Barnes gathered 11 points in his final round of the Barracuda Championship with a 5-under-par 32-35=67.

Barnes' only bogey of the day was a disappointing one, occurring at the par-5 18th. He more than covered that with six birdies, and likely assured himself a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs and full status for 2014-15 with his 34 points good for a top-10 finish after entering the week 114th in the FEC standings. He hit just 10 GIR, but gained over three strokes with the putter. Three of his birdies were outside of 10 feet, highlighted by a 25'4" effort at the par-3 11th.

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.

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 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.

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]"
