Greg Owen followed his opening 66 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in today's second round.
He hit 15 greens in regulation but went just 1-for-3 in scrambling with a bogey-5 at the sixth hole and a walk-off double at the par-3 ninth where he found water off the tee. The rest of his round was great. Owen rolled in five birdies, including a try from 14'3" at the par-3 third. At 8-under 136, the Englishman is just three shots adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Greg Owen birdied half of TPC Louisiana en route to a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in today's opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

His nine birdies leads the field of 156. Three of them disappeared on the set of four par 5s, including a conversion from just outside 10 feet at No. 7 and a walk-off five-yarder from the fringe at 18. His longest par breaker measured 26'5" at the par-4 15th. This is Owen's lowest aggregate in 27 rounds this season, heady stuff given he hit only 12 greens in regulation today. He arrived in town just 3-for-9 on the season and 181st in the FedExCup standings. The Brit hasn't had a top 20 on the PGA TOUR since a T12 at the RBC Canadian Open in July of 2013, so he's probably already feeling the butterflies given what's at stake right now. Owen signed his card slotted two strokes back of the overnight co-leaders.

Greg Owen has been added to the published field of this week's Shell Houston Open.

The Englishman started the week as the fifth alternate but gained entry when Jimmy Walker withdrew. Owen is just 3-for-8 this season and hasn't played the PGA TOUR since sharing 38th place in Puerto Rico. He tied for 16th on the Tour last week and has top 25s in his last two trips to the Golf Club of Houston, so his trends could be much worse. That said, we know who he is, which means he's worth avoiding in most formats.

Greg Owen returns to Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico for his third Puerto Rico Open.

Owen has made each of his previous two cuts in this event, tying for 31st in 2009 and sharing 24th in 2014. He's broken par in seven of his eight rounds. He's made just two of his seven cuts thus far in 2014-15, and both were respectable finishes. A T22nd in the Sanderson Farms Open, also an opposite-field event like the PRO, was the highlight followed by a T32 in the Farmers Insurance Open. Given how weak the field is this week, he possesses some value to gamers.
Mar 2 - 8:55 PM

Greg Owen was added to the published field of this week's Humana Challenge.

Owen was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he gained entry via a sponsor exemption. All of the top 10s at the Sony Open in Hawaii were already eligible on merit for the Humana. Owen is 1-for-4 on the season with a T22 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. The 42-year-old has made five trips to the desert and cashed three times, but he's yet to record a top 60.
Jan 19 - 2:59 PM

Greg Owen sputtered to a 1-for-4 record this fall, landing in his current position of 171st in the FedExCup leaderboard.

The Englishman regained his PGA TOUR status through the Tour Finals last season. He's been a disappointment early on, but has plenty of appeal in weekly salary-cap leagues due to his 114 career cuts made in 205 attempts. Owen now ranks 39th after the first reshuffle and may struggle to pick up the amount of starts he would prefer.

Greg Owen gathers his gear and heads south of the border for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Englishman is no stranger to El Camaleón Golf Club, signing for a T16 in 2012 and a T20 in 2009. Both top 20s came after a missed cut in his 2007 course debut. Starting the season ranked 18th on the opening reshuffle, Owen led off with a pair of missed cuts before yielding a T22 at last week's Sanderson Farms Championship. This is the final week to bank some FedExCup points before the next reshuffle. Owen's course history makes him an interesting sleeper in deeper formats.

Greg Owen enters the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season ranked 18th in the opening reshuffle.

Owen had conditional status on TOUR in 2013-14, but wisely chose to focus his time on the Tour. A T4 at the South Georgia Classic and a win at the United Leasing Championship essentially locked up his PGA TOUR card before the end of June. He played just three of the four Tour Finals events, doing enough damage with a solo third at the Hotel Fitness Championship to render him satisfied with a solid reshuffle number. The 42-year-old is a veteran of 201 PGA TOUR starts and owns 10 top-10 finishes.

Greg Owen has been removed from the published field of this week's John Deere Classic.

Same story, different week. He bowed out of last week's stop in West Virginia for the Tour stop in Nova Scotia and missed the cut. However, with his win in Kansas the week prior and a T4 in Georgia two months ago, the Brit ranks 15th on the tour's money list. So, he'll play in this week's Utah Championship. Given he's 198th in the FedExCup standings, it would be shocking if he played the PGA TOUR again this summer. NOTE: Wes Short, Jr. (U.S. Senior Open) and Richard S. Johnson (no commitment) also withdrew as alternates.

Greg Owen has been removed as an alternate for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The Englishman started the week as the seventh alternate, but had risen into the No. 1 spot after Monday's field changes. We wouldn't normally alert you of this kind of news, but Owen won on the Tour on Sunday. It was his first victory of any note since the 2004 World Sand Championship. His last title on a sanctioned circuit occurred at the 2003 British Masters on the European Tour. His win at the United Leasing Championship two days ago vaulted him to 13th on Tour money list. With the tour in Nova Scotia this week and travel to and from West Virginia likely impractical, it makes sense that he'd remain committed to the Nova Scotia Open to try to pad his earnings.

Greg Owen lit up Victoria National Golf Club for a 5-under-par 37-30=67 in the final round of the United Leasing Championship for a one-stroke victory over Ryan Armour and Mark Hubbard.

Owen's 9-under 279 earned him a breakthrough Tour win in his 48th start. The veteran of 201 PGA TOUR events began his day with a triple bogey on the opening par 4, seemingly shooting himself out of the tournament. He partially erased that with back-to-back birdies on the sixth and seventh holes. His back nine featured five birdies and an eagle on the first eight holes before closing with a bogey at the 18th. He landed 14 GIR and putted to a 1.50 average. After beginning the week 88th on the Tour money list, he now moves inside the top 25 to the 13th spot. While he isn't a lock to earn a PGA TOUR card for next season just yet, he's well on his way.

Greg Owen returns to the FedEx St. Jude Classic for his fourth look at TPC Southwind.

Limited by conditional status, this will be just the seventh start of the season for the Englishman, with his lone top 25 coming at the Puerto Rico Open. His last three trips to Memphis have resulted in two missed cuts with a T11 sandwiched in-between. Owen is still in search of his first PGA TOUR victory.

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

Owen was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but gained entry due to three withdrawals today. Limited by conditional status, he's still 4-for-4 on the season, but has just one top-55 finish (T24, Puerto Rico), leaving him 203rd in FedExCup points. This will mark his sixth appearance at TPC Louisiana. He survived four cuts, two of which went for a top 20 but none since 2010 (T16).

Greg Owen stapled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. Three of his par breakers dropped in on the par 5s. He arrived at the midpoint in 8-under 136, two back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. It's a critical week for the Englishman to shine since he's stuck on conditional status this season. Given that and his age (42), he shouldn't populate fantasy rosters, but he'd make for a great story is he would manage to break through. He's winless in 195 previous PGA TOUR starts. When veteran gamers think of him, all that comes to mind is that three-putt from nearly inside the leather to cost him the title at Bay Hill in 2006.

Greg Owen has been added to the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Owen was the sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry tonight when Patrick Reed withdrew. Now strapped with conditional status, the Englishman will be making his first start on the PGA TOUR this season. He's 3-for-7 at Torrey Pines but has yet to secure a top 50.
