Overnight co-leader Greg Owen stagnated to an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic but his 9-under total of 271 was good for solo second, four shots back of the winner Fabian Gomez.
Owen shared the 54-hole lead for the first time on the PGA TOUR in 214 career starts. He didn't respond well to the moment, not that he played poorly, more so that he was overshadowed by playing partner Gomez. For the record, the Englishman struggled with his ball-striking on Sunday, finishing up his only round of the tournament where he registered a negative number in the strokes gained: tee-to-green category (-0.175). Totals on the round read six (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation exchanging three birdies with three bogeys. The consolation for the 43-year-old is his runner-up matches a career-best finish at the 2006 Bay Hill Invitational and he collects 300 much-needed FedExCup points. He also brushes off a season-best T22 at the Sanderson Farms Championship last November as well. Jun 14 - 6:14 PM

Greg Owen spun a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and his 54-hole aggregate of 9-under 201 has him in a two-way tie for the clubhouse lead with Fabian Gomez. UPDATE: With play completed, Owen is tied for the 54-hole lead with Fabian Gomez.

Owen, overnight co-leader after round one, began the day in a seven-way logjam at 6-under, three shots adrift of 36-hole leader Brooks Koepka. The 43-year-old mustered six (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation, the latter has him currently ranked first in GIR thru three rounds at a 75.93 percent clip. Owen outpaced one bogey at the tenth with four birdies on Nos. 3, 6, 14 and 18, his 10'5" roll on the par-3 14th his longest conversion on Moving Day. The Englishman is in prime position to record his first top 10 on the season (13th event), and more importantly, his first PGA TOUR victory in this his 214th career start.

Overnight co-leader Greg Owen carded an even-par 35-35=70 in today's second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to reach the midpoint in 6-under 134, three swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The good news is that he hit 14 greens in regulation at TPC Southwind today. The bad news is that he converted only one look for birdie. It was his first, too, from just 21 inches at the par-4 first hole. Owen also dropped a shot when he failed to get up and down following a wayward approach into the par-4 fifth hole. Overall, he's hit a field-high 30 GIR and has squared just the one bogey.

Greg Owen fashioned a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64 in today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

This is a potentially huge spark for the 43-year-old who really needs one. At 172nd in the FedExCup standings, you'd absolved if you didn't realize that he was fully exempt at Web.com Tour Finals grad. But today at TPC Southwind, he played like his career depended on it, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways and hitting 16 greens in regulation. Owen connected for six birdies, including rolls of 11 feet and 35'7" at Nos. 17 and 18, respectively, before making the turn. In fact, they were the inside pair of four consecutive birdies. Not only is this is lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he carded the same to open the 2012 McGladrey Classic, but it yielded a share of the clubhouse lead with Brooks Koepka.

Greg Owen heads to Irving, Texas, to contest this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and arrives 174th in the FedExCup standings.

Owen is 4-for-7 at the Byron Nelson but has yet to post a top 25. His T29 in the 2012 edition is his best showing, followed by a T78/MDF and a missed cut last year. The Englishman has missed seven cuts in 11 starts on his season registering one top 25 (T22, Sanderson Farms Championship). The Web.com Tour grad resurrected his career by finishing 27th on that tour's money list in 2014, including a win at the United Leasing Championship. The last top 10 the 43-year-old nabbed on the PGA TOUR was in 2012 (T7, McGladrey Classic), 44 starts ago.

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.
Apr 24 - 2:46 PM

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 Web.com 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.

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.

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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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 Web.com 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.
