Charlie Wi was the first to arrive in the clubhouse at 5-under 205 after a third round score of 4-under 32-34=66 at the RBC Canadian Open.
Wi's ascension up the leaderboard was a product of six par breakers, including a nontraditional eagle, holing out on the par-4 ninth from 179 yards out. It was a second shot kind of day, as he split just five (of 14) fairways but recovered nicely with his irons and flat stick. Wi sat just inside the top 25 at the time of his posting. If he can hold onto that position tomorrow, he would grab his first top 25 since January at the Humana Challenge. Jul 26 - 1:32 PM

Charlie Wi opened the RBC Canadian Open with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to put a stake down for the very early clubhouse lead.

Wi went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Royal Montreal Golf Club's Blue Course this morning. He ranks 155th in FedExCup points after missing his last four cuts, but he opened with a hole-out for birdie from the greenside rough at the par-4 10th today. Wi added five birdies, including a three-yarder from the fringe at the par-3 17th and a pair outside 10 feet on the greens at 2 and 7. He could have taken it even deeper if not for a pair of two-putts from inside seven feet, but considering his form entering the week, he should have been smiling when he signed his card.

Charlie Wi is in jeopardy of missing the FedExCup Playoffs as he enters this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The writing was on the wall last year when Wi barely snuck into the playoffs at 118th place, but now he may miss out on The Barclays for the first time in the playoff era, as he enters the week ranked 155th. With four straight missed cuts ahead of the Canadian Open, expectations are low, but motivation can be a powerful tool.

Charlie Wi enters the Travelers Championship ranked 137th in the FedExCup standings.

Wi is trending in the right direction after back-to-back top-30 finishes at the HP Byron Nelson Championship and FedEx St. Jude Classic. He appeared to hit a rough patch starting last year at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and has made the weekend in just 17 of his 34 starts since. Gamers should keep an eye on him this week to see if his good form continues.

Charlie Wi turns his attention to TPC Four Seasons for this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Wi currently sits 147th in the FedExCup standings, so he needs to make a move if he hopes to earn a spot inside the top 125 to keep his PGA TOUR card and reach the FEC Playoffs. He tied for seventh in this event back in 2008, then shared 23rd a year later. Since then he's missed two cuts and tied for 73rd. Not exactly a great trend.

Charlie Wi will have a crack at Harbour Town Golf Links at this week's RBC Heritage.

Wi is batting .500 for the 2014 season with 6 cuts made in 12 events. Unfortunately four of those cuts made came before February. Without any recent form or course history, gamers should not be expecting much out of Wi this week.
Apr 16 - 1:12 PM

Charlie Wi readies for his eighth Valero Texas Open this week.

Three of his previous seven starts have occurred at TPC San Antonio, with a T17 in 2010 and a T4 in 2012 overshadowing a missed cut last year. The bigger concern is his 2013-14 form. He's made just half of his 10 cuts and ranks 127th in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 24 - 9:05 PM

Charlie Wi is set for his sixth trip to PGA National and his seventh venture to The Honda Classic.

PGA National took over as the host venue in 2007. Three of Wi's six trips to PGA National have resulted in top-15 finishes, so his course history earns a check mark. Things have slowed down lately, as he missed the cut in 2011 and tied for 44th in 2012. He normally plays well in his home state of California, but that wasn't the case in 2014. He's missed the cut in each of his last three starts, rendering current form as a red flag.

Charlie Wi opened the Humana Challenge with a 7-under-par 34-31=65 at PGA West's Palmer Private, good for early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Wi hit only 11 greens in regulation but converted nine birdies against two bogeys. He signed his card with a strokes gained-putting split north of 2.875. After his round, he told Golf Channel that he didn't play at the end of 2013 due to a torn ligament in his thumb. (He didn't specify which hand.) While he suffered the injury prior to the Open, he tied for 12th at CordeValle and missed the cut in Vegas the following week before sitting out until a T38 last week at Waialae. The winless Wi entered the week 142-for-210 with five runner-up finishes in his PGA TOUR career. He'll try and pile on at La Quinta Country Club in the second round.

Charlie Wi returns from a lengthy vacation for the Sony Open.

Wi competed in the first two events of 2013-14 back in October, which included a T12 at the Open, but hasn't seen action on the PGA TOUR since. As a West Coast guy, he typically plays a hefty schedule in January and February. He tied for 26th in this event last year.
Jan 7 - 9:17 PM

Charlie Wi concluded the 2013 PGA TOUR season 123rd in the FedExCup standings, sneaking into the top 125 to remain fully exempt for 2013-14.

Not wanting to chance taking things down to the wire again this season, Wi jumped out of the gates with a T12 at the Open to start the year before failing to cash at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open the next week. We haven't seen the smooth putter since, which likely just means he's sticking to his regular list of tournaments and The McGladrey Classic and OHL Classic at Mayakoba didn't crack the rotation. Never a winner on TOUR, it's still fair to expect him to finish inside the top 100 on money and FEC lists at season's end given his solid start.

Charlie Wi reached the midpoint of the Open in 7-under-par 67-68=135 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He finally experienced a down season in 2013, but the University of California at Berkeley product has started 2013-14 campaign strong. After going bogey-free on Thursday when he went 8-for-8 in scrambling and converted four birdies, he added five birdies today against two bogeys. His longest roll today measured just 13'6" at the ninth hole, his last of the day.

Charlie Wi enters The Barclays 118th in the FedExCup standings.

Wi tied for 67th at Liberty National, so his experience could prove invaluable. He’s flashed glimpses of form lately, with a T11 at the Reno-Tahoe Open leading to a 68-65 start at the Wyndham Championship last week before a weekend fade.
Tue, Aug 20, 2013 09:44:00 PM

Charlie Wi carded a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship.

Wi hit 13 greens in regulation and buried eight birdies at Sedgefield today to reach the halfway point in 7-under 133, four back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He curled home three of his par breakers from 11-16 feet before capping his round with zero-putt seven-yarder at the ninth hole. He also squared three bogeys, one of which as a result of a three-putt from inside 31 feet at the par-4 18th hole.

Charlie Wi added six point to his tally in the third round of the Reno-Tahoe Open and enters the finale with 25.

Wi began the week ranked 121st in the FedExCup standings, and on the correct side of the bubble for locking up a 2013-13 PGA TOUR card and a spot in the Playoffs. Four birdies and two bogeys at Montreux now have him alone in fifth and projected in the 112th spot in the standings. That would be good enough for him to breath easy and set his schedule for 2013-14.
