Greg Owen makes his way back to Sedgefield Country Club for an eighth appearance at this week's Wyndham Championship.
The 44-year-old is 4-for-7 at this event but 3-for-4 since the move back to Sedgefield Country Club. This season he's earned 13 paychecks in 28 starts, positioning himself in 156th on the FedExCup leaderboard. A big finish is needed this week for the Englishman, but he may be headed for the Tour Finals if he wants to keep playing on the big stage come the fall. Aug 17 - 9:12 AM

Greg Owen readies for his eighth Zurich Classic of New Orleans where he's 5-for-7 with two top 25s and a best of T16 in 2010.

The 44-year-old journeyman is nails in ball striking ranking T13 on TOUR. He's also 23rd in greens in regulation and 26th in strokes gained: tee-to-green. The Englishman's major drawback is with the flat stick, as it has been virtually his entire career. He ranks 198th in strokes gained: putting this season (-0.993), and going back four seasons, he hasn't ranked inside the top 170. Owen is a respectable 10-for-16 this season with two top 25s and one top 10. His T5 at the Sony Open is the only time he connected four straight sub-par rounds in 2015-16.
Apr 27 - 8:23 PM

Greg Owen conjured up a 1-under-par 35-34=69 on day three of The Honda Classic to post 1-under 209, up eight places on the live leaderboard to T12.

The Englishman entered one for his last five since the tourney moved to PGA Nat'l with his only cash a T13 seven years ago. He began in even-par 140 (69-71) to sit T20 after two days but only two off the overnight top 10. The 44-year-old, who's winless on TOUR in 231 career events, split 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation en route to a 2.709 mark in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. He circled only three on those 14 greens however (-0.452 in SGP), to outpace bogeys at nine (failed scramble) and a three-putt from 38'1" at the par-4 16th.

Greg Owen authored a 6-under-par 34-30=64 in the final round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to wrap his fifth appearance at 15-under 265, currently solo sixth on the leaderboard.

The last time Owen put four rounds in the 60s was seven years ago at the 2009 John Deere Classic so this week's effort was unexpected to say the least. The 43-year-old, making his first visit to Waialae since a missed cut in 2013, began his final frame on 9-under (T23) after opening in 69-65-67. He circled five in the finale against a lone bogey and culminated his stroll with a walk-off eagle from 8'4" at the par-5 last, his third eagle of the tourney. For the week, the Englishman circled 19 birdies, squared eight bogeys and a double. At last glance, he was first in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green (11.895) but 67th in strokes gained: putting.
Jan 17 - 8:59 PM

Greg Owen conjured up a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in today's second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 6-under 134, up 53 spots on the live leaderboard, and tied with seven others for low lap of the day thus far.

The 43-year-old circled five birdies and an eagle-3 against two bogeys to better his personal best (in 16 career rounds) at Waialae CC by two strokes. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation. Thru 36 holes, he's T1 in that latter stat at last check with 31/36 (86.11 percent). True-to-form however, he's currently 115th in strokes gained: putting. Owen entered the week ranked 213th in SGP on TOUR thru five starts prior to the holiday break. That said, he posted a 0.959 mark on day two to bite into a dismal -3.310 in R1. Four of his five birdies on Friday traveled less than 10 feet and added a 13-footer at the par-4 10th and a walk-off eagle at the par-5 ninth from a mere 3'4".
Jan 15 - 7:47 PM

Through five starts of the fall portion of the wraparound schedule, Greg Owen ranks 137th in the FedExCup standings and 213th in strokes gained: putting.

Owen finished 104th in FEC points last season and has collected a scant 38 FEC points in five starts to begin 2015-16. His three cashes read T74/MDF-T43-T56 and he departed early in both of his latest starts, missing the cut by one at the OHL and by four at The RSM Classic. The 43-year-old missed 10 cuts last season on 19 starts, but pocketed $1,180,794, highlighted by a solo second at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Money-wise, it was his best season on TOUR since 2006, despite finishing 181st in SGP.

Greg Owen carded a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, finishing one stroke back of the threesome sharing the clubhouse lead.

After making only 19 starts in 2014-15, the Brit is already off and running on the new season. He placed T74/MDF last week at Silverado to open 2015-16. Today in Las Vegas, he went 1-for-2 in scrambling with a bogey, but countered with seven birdies. That included a pair from just outside 10 feet. So, while he ranked second in strokes gained: tee-to-green at last check (4.528), he owned a negative strokes gained: putting clip (-0.090).

After a two-year recess from postseason action, Greg Owen returns to the FedExCup Playoffs at The Barclays and enters the week 90th in the FEC standings.

Owen is 2-for-2 at The Barclays in the Playoffs format, last participating in 2012 at Bethpage State Park (T38) and adding a T15 in 2009 at Liberty National. Those finishes were enough to advance him to the second playoff event (Deutsche Bank Championship), but that's where both seasons concluded. It's been a renaissance year for the 43-year-old, that is, since mid-June, where he tied a career best with a solo second at the FedEx St. Jude Classic (2006 Arnold Palmer). Two starts later, he put up a T6 at The Greenbrier Classic. At the FESJC, he co-lead after 54 holes for the first time on the PGA TOUR and closed with an even-par 70. Still winless on TOUR in 219 career starts, the Englishman has enjoyed four top-25 finishes over his last six events, including a T15 in his latest start at the Quicken Loans National.

Greg Owen has bowed out of this week's Barracuda Championship.

The Englishman added a T15 to his slate at the Quicken Loans National and ranks 80th in the FedExCup standings. He has top 20s in four of his last six starts. Even if he flames out in the Playoffs, it's been a successful season in just 18 starts out of the Tour reshuffle category.

Greg Owen chased his bogey-free 66 to open the Quicken Loans National with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round.

He joined Pat Perez as a co-leader at the midpoint at 8-under 134. Owen was one of 13 golfers without a blemish on Thursday. Today, he went 3-for-3 in scrambling and circled three birdies, the gem measuring 29'11" at the par-5 eighth hole. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with an aggregate clip of 6.851, but owned a negative split in strokes gained: putting (-0.832). That's not too surprising on a course where few in the field had any experience on the greens at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

Greg Owen posted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National.

Owen has enjoyed a solid several weeks, so the hits keep coming. He missed only two (of 14) fairways and went 4-for-4 in scrambling with five birdies. His longest measured only 11'5" at the par-4 15th hole. The Brit is 83rd in the FedExCup standings, which seems low given his recent form, but the QLN is just his 18th start and all three of his top 20s have come in his last five starts. He's three strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

Greg Owen tossed up a 4-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of The 144th Open Championship.

The Englishman went out in Group 1 at St. Andrews today and traded five birdies with one bogey after finding 15 greens in regulation. It stood as the clubhouse lead until Robert Streb went two lower four threesomes later. It probably surprises most American golf fans that Owen is in his eight appearance in this major, but it's just his third of the last 12 editions. And it's his first start in any major since he placed T54 at Royal Lytham & St. Annes in 2012. He arrived in Scotland this week with momentum having finishing second in Memphis in mid-June and T6 at Greenbrier two weeks ago.

Greg Owen has withdrawn from this week's John Deere Classic.

The Brit qualified for The Open Championship on Sunday at Greenbrier, so he's headed to the U.K. for the major for the first time since 2012. Owen's T6 at The Old White TPC validates a runner-up finish in Memphis in mid-June. Now 88th in the FedExCup standings, the 43-year-old is all but a certainty to retain his PGA TOUR card.
Mon, Jul 6, 2015 11:20:00 AM

Greg Owen capped his week at The Old White TPC with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 269, good for an exemption into The Open Championship.

Owen started the day outside the top 10, and then traded five birdies with two bogeys. He hit 17 greens in regulation, failed to salvage par on the other hole and added a three-putt bogey at the par-3 eighth hole. The top four, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 12 and ties today punched tickets to St. Andrews. The Englishman was one of five tied for sixth place not already exempt, but after David Hearn (T1) and Danny Lee (T1) secured the first two spots, Owen wrangled his for having the second-best Official World Golf Ranking (194th). James Hahn (T6) is 106th, so he received the other berth. The trio that failed to collect consisted of Bryce Molder (248th), Andres Romero (315th) and Chad Collins (350th). Of today's qualifiers, only Owen (seven appearances) and Hearn (one appearance) have competed in the season's third major.

Greg Owen backed up his opening 65 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in today's second round.

The Brit hit 14 greens in regulation again today. They led to five birdies, the longest measuring 12'10" at the par-4 ninth hole. He also squared two bogeys, both in failed attempts to scramble for pars, but he checked up just one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. At last check, Owen led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with an aggregate clip of 7.046.
