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). Oct 22 - 5:48 PM

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.
Aug 3 - 11:18 AM

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.
Jul 31 - 12:24 PM

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.
Jul 30 - 7:00 PM

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.
Jul 16 - 7:22 AM

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.
Jul 6 - 11:20 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.
Jul 5 - 6:07 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 5:27 PM

Greg Owen tossed up a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing one stroke adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

The runner-up in Memphis three weeks ago went 6-for-14 in scoring opportunities today with six birdies. However, his longest conversion disappeared for par from 11'7" at the par-4 seventh hole. Owen's only miscue was a bogey at the par-3 15th where he missed the green way right and couldn't convert an eventual par try from 14'6". At 101st in the FedExCup standings, one more solid finish should punch his ticket to the Playoffs since 2012.
Jul 2 - 12:46 PM

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.
Jun 13 - 5:42 PM

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.
Jun 12 - 7:24 PM

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 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.
Jun 11 - 2:47 PM

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 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.
