Overnight leader Greg Owen settled for a 2-under-par 34-36=70 during the final round of the Barracuda Championship, picking up seven points to finish the week at 44 which earned him a seat in a three-man playoff. Owen would then get knocked out on the first playoff hole after failing to birdie the par-5 18th.
The Englishman positioned himself as the 54-hole leader in large part due to his stellar putting week. Instead of regressing on the greens, Owen struggled with his approach game today (-1.050 strokes gained approach-to-the-green). On the day, he gave himself just seven scoring chances from inside 20 feet which was ultimately his undoing at the first playoff hole as his approach found a tough lie in the greenside bunker. It was a slightly disappointing day that was made longer as he sat through a pair of weather delays. In the end, this will go in the books as his fourth career runner-up finish (265 starts). He is still searching for his first PGA TOUR title. Aug 6 - 9:07 PM

Greg Owen ransacked Montrêux Golf and Country Club with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round three of the Barracuda Championship, good for 14 points in the Modified Stableford scoring system to reach 37 points ahead of the finale, staking his claim as the 54-hole leader.

Owen split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation today. It was his flat stick that deserves most of the credit, though. Entering the week ranked 198th in strokes gained putting, the Englishman has clearly found something with his stroke. Owen gained 2.348 strokes putting today, +5.473 SG Putting on the week (8th in the field). The 45-year-old has just one 54-hole lead/co-lead in his career (2015 St. Jude Classic) and he finished solo second that week. Making his 265th career start, Owen will need to keep the putter hot for one more round if he wants to take home his first PGA TOUR trophy come Sunday night.

Greg Owen pieced together a 6-under-par 32-34=66 during round two of the Barracuda Championship, netting him 14 points in the Modified Stableford scoring format to reach 23 points on the week, currently just one off the pace set by Stuart Appleby.

The Englishman entered the week ranked 162nd in the FedExCup race, in need of something special here in Reno, Nevada. Today certainly qualifies as he split 13 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation. While the flat stick typically holds him back, he drained five putts from outside 10 feet today, gaining 1.651 strokes with the putter after a +1.492 SGP in R1. If the putter stays hot, then the sky is the limit for Owen, still in search of his maiden win (four career podium finishes).
Aug 4 - 5:10 PM

World No. 404 Greg Owen prepares for the Quicken Loans National at TPC Potomac and arrives at 146th in the FedExCup standings.

The 45-year-old's career best in 261 career events is runner-up three times, including one this season in 12 starts, a T2 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms in his kick-off event. Playing this season on conditional status, that's his lone top 10 with one other top 25, a T17 at the CareerBuilder back in January. Since then, the Englishman has three missed cuts, two MDFs, and two cashes of T52 or worse. He's 3-for-7 at the Quicken Loans with two top 25s and a best of T15 in 2015, two visits ago. The Transplanted Floridian ranks 38th on TOUR in GIR and 55th in birdie average (3.76), but 124th in scoring average (71.335).

Greg Owen weaved his way toward a 5-under-par 34-33=67 while taking on the Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course at PGA WEST during round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge, entering the weekend on 10-under 134.

The Englishman squeaked his way into the field with a mid-week WD by John Cook. Owen is taking full advantage of the opportunity through two days of play in the California desert. He opened his week with a blemish-free 5-under 67 at La Quinta Country Club and circled seven more birdies today at the Nicklaus Tournament Course, swallowing a pair of bogeys on the way. For the second-straight day he split 11 (of 14) fairways, currently ranking T14 in the field in fairways hit. Owen already has a runner-up finish on his 2016-17 resume (Sanderson Farms) but he's still searching for a first career win on TOUR.

Late-entrant Greg Owen is taking advantage of the opportunity, carding a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 while taking on La Quinta Country Club in the opening round of the CareerBuilder Challenge.

With John Cook withdrawing mid-Wednesday, Owen earned himself a late spot in the field as second alternate. The Englishman wasted no time getting to work, circling birdies on all four par 5s today, in addition to a birdie at the par-4 eighth hole. Owen is often a little shaky with the putter, but 16 greens in regulation helped alleviate some of that pressure. Owen is playing this season on conditional status after finishing 150th in the FedExCup standings last year. A big week would go along way toward earning back his TOUR card.
Jan 19 - 5:06 PM

Playing this season on conditional status, Greg Owen orchestrated a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship for a 72-hole tally of 16-under 272, up four places into a three-way T2, four in arrears to champion and PGA TOUR rookie Cody Gribble.

The 44-year-old, who finished 150th in FedExCup points last season, was making his 250th career start and is still chasing his first title. This is his third career runner-up, first since the 2015 FedEx St. Jude, and came in his first start of the 2016-17 season. The Windemere, Florida, resident began the final frame in a four-way T6 on 12-under, two shy of 54-hole co-leaders Luke List and Chris Kirk. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he outpaced bogey-5s on holes 8 (3-putt from 30 feet) and 12 with birdies at 3, 4, 10, 13, 15 and 17, including three birdie-2s. The Englishman was No.1 for the week in SG: Approach-the-Green at 6.815 though T61 (of 76) in SG: Around-the-Green (-1.046).

Beginning on No. 10 tee, Greg Owen spun a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship and at 10-under 134 is the new 36-hole clubhouse leader at the CC of Jackson. UPDATE: With play completed, Owen is in a two-way T2, two back of 36-hole leader Grayson Murray.

The 43-year-old is playing 2016-17 on conditional status after finishing 150th in FedExCup points last season. He logged just one top 10 in 29 events (T5, Sony) so kicking off here this week with twin 67s has to be a huge boost in confidence. As he did yesterday, the Englishman squared only one bogey, currently T1 in that stat, and circled six par breakers on 15 greens in regulation for 1.667 putts per GIR. Today's split featured six birdies -- yesterday four birdies and an eagle) -- with three birdie-2s, highlighted by a 30-footer at the par-3 seventh that completed his scoring.

Greg Owen opened his week at the Sanderson Farms Championship with a 5-under-par 33-34=67, placing him one off the early lead with play still in progress.

The Englishman split 11 (of 14) fairways on his way to 15 greens in regulation. That great ball-striking was clearly the key to success today, as he walked off the course gaining 2.945 strokes approaching-the-green. The highlight of the day came at the par-5 14th, though, where he found the green in two and bombed in a 40'9" eagle putt. Owen is making his second start at the Country Club of Jackson, finishing T22 during the 2015 edition.

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 Web.com Tour Finals if he wants to keep playing on the big stage come the fall.

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.

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.

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".

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.
