Carl Pettersson is off and running on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15, having cashed paychecks in four of his first five starts.
The highlight was easily a T17 at The McGladrey Classic, as the Swede currently ranks 79th in the FedExCup standings. One thing to keep an eye on this season is the possibility to that he will continue to experiment with his putting. There were several occasions last season where it was mentioned that he tested a traditional putter in competition. He has traditionally been known to use a long putter, but with the anchored putting ban just 13 months away it's possible he will continue to tinker. That could be a problem for gamers, as it could produce lower returns in the short run. Nov 29 - 8:20 PM

At 5-under-par 68-67=135, Carl Pettersson is four strokes behind 36-hole leader Russell Henley at The McGladrey Classic.

The Redneck Swede is quietly now 3-for-3 on the young season. He's already amassed 11 birdies at Seaside, six of which dropping in the second round and all on par 4s. Four from today's set ranged outside 12 feet, including three from longer than 20 feet. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the round measured 3.251.

Carl Pettersson turns his attention to TPC Summerlin for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Swede had made each of his previous five cuts in this event, including two T5s and a T12 last year. Of his 16 rounds in this tournament, 15 of those have been under par. He tied for 57th at the Frys.com Open last week, so he seems to be an excellent candidate to, at the very least, make the cut.

Carl Pettersson carded a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is the early clubhouse leader at 9-under 275.

Pettersson began his week at TPC Boston ranked a distant 93rd in the FedExCup standings. His play this week has done the improbable, moving him into the safety zone and qualifying him for the BMW Championship later this week. It took a 12 foot par on the par-5 18th to seal the deal. The Swede circled five birdies and settled for 13 pars, with his 29'8" hole out from off the green at the par-4 12th easily serving as the highlight. Proximity was the key to his round, as four of his birdies fell from inside of seven feet.

Carl Pettersson scored a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Pettersson played like he has nothing to lose this week, because he doesn't. Ranked 93rd in the FedExCup standings, he has to be thinking top 20 or so to advance in the Playoffs. So far, so good. He hit 12 greens and circled six birdies at TPC Boston today. The highlights included a roll from 29'7" at the par-4 fifth hole and a hole-out from the rough 10 yards away at the par-4 12th; both dropped for birdie. The Swede also poured in a walk-off par save from 15'10" at the par-5 18th where he landed his approach in an unplayable lie, which led to a one-stroke penalty. Pettersson signed his card sitting just two strokes in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Carl Pettersson readies for TPC Boston for his ninth start at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Swede enters the week at the back of the line, ranked 93rd in the FedExCup standings. Pettersson has been hit-or-miss in his Deutsche Bank career, with two top 15s but also three missed cuts out of eight attempts. With two missed cuts in his last three events, it's hard to endorse the Swede with any confidence this week.

Carl Pettersson added a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 8-under 132, two strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Pettersson wielded a red-hot putter for most of the round, dropping an eagle from 11'2" at the par-5 15th hole to complement four birdies. That set featured conversions from 19'2", 29 feet and 11'7" at Nos. 14, 17 and 4, respectively. However, after landing his approach at the par-4 eighth just 52 inches from the stick -- the penultimate hole of his walk -- the Swede promptly three-jacked for bogey. Despite that mess, he signed his card with a strokes gained-putting clip north of 1.200 for the round. He's missed only five greens in regulation through 36 holes.

Carl Pettersson, the all-time earnings leader at the Wyndham Championship, carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the 75th edition.

While he went to high school nearby, played collegiately at North Carolina State and didn't become a U.S. citizen until early 2012, Greensboro has always been good to the transplanted Swede. With a win and another three top fives in this tournament, the first over at Forest Oaks in 2007, Pettersson can never be counted out in the tournament. Today, he split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to four birdies against one bogey. His most notable conversion measured 16'10" for birdie at the par-4 14th hole. He signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Carl Pettersson lifted the trophy at Sedgefield CC in 2008 and returns this week for his 12th Wyndham Championship.

The Swede moved to Greensboro, North Carolina at age 15, and attended high school just seven miles from Sedgefield CC. It's no wonder that this event has always been a favorite for Pettersson. Since Wyndham moved to Sedgefield in 2008, he's earned two top 5s in addition to his victory. Gamers should feel confident trotting out Pettersson this week, in any format.

Carl Pettersson has been removed from the published field of this week's Barracuda Championship.

Given the fact that he connected top 10s in June, he stood out as a potential contender for the title at MontrĂȘux this week. Instead, he'll sit on his laurels. The Swede currently ranks 80th in FedExCup points.

Carl Pettersson completed his week at The Greenbrier Classic with a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round.

It was all pars on the front nine at The Old White TPC for the Swede, but he heated up on the back. A 10'7" birdie on the par-4 10th got him on the board. He added a short birdie at the par-5 12th and picked up his final circle at the par-4 16th from 16 feet. Pettersson ends the week at 4-under 276.

Carl Pettersson signed for a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the Travelers Championship, landing inside the top 10 at 11-under 269.

The Swede split just seven (of 14) fairways in his Sunday navigation of TPC River Highlands. Playing out of the rough didn't yield many scoring chances, and his putter stayed relatively quiet. The Swede has now signed for red numbers in 11 of his last 14 TPC River Highland rounds, and should be considered strongly in future editions. You can mark this down as Pettersson's second straight top-10 finish.

Carl Pettersson kept the pedal down on his way to a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Travelers Championship.

Pettersson put on a driving exhibition, splitting all 14 fairways on his way to his third consecutive round in the 60s. Unfortunately, his putter did not cooperate, as he missed three putts inside 6'3" and walked off the course with a -1.561 strokes gained-putting. Sitting at 9-under 201, the Swede is right in the thick of things.

Carl Pettersson spun a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to share third place with Webb Simpson and Matt Every at 8-under 272.

His last lap around TPC Southwind featured three birdies and two bogeys, with a 15'11" birdie at the par-4 seventh and a 10'4" birdie at the par-4 17th serving as the highlights. He finished the week first in GIR and third in driving accuracy, so ball-striking was clearly the key to his success this week. He entered the week 115th in the FedExCup standings, and on the bubble for the Playoffs later this season. He is now projected in 80th, which makes him a virtual lock to finish inside the top 25.

Carl Pettersson signed for a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic and enters the finale inside the top 10 at 7-under 203.

Pettersson alternated three birdies with two bogeys on his lap around TPC Southwind, with an 18'4" birdie on the the par-4 ninth and a 10'2" birdie on the par-4 12th serving as the highlights. He landed 15 GIR on the round, and leads the tournament with 41 in the first 54 holes. The Swede is also first in driving accuracy, so the ball-striking is on point. He will try and score his second top 10 of the season later this afternoon.
