Brian Davis opened The Greenbrier Classic with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-34=64 to establish the very early clubhouse lead.
The Englishman went out in the first threesome off the first tee at The Old White TPC today. After piping the fairway at the opening par 4, he jarred his approach from 146 yards for eagle. Davis followed with four birdies, including rolls from 11'11", 27'1" and 19'7" at Nos. 3, 17 and 18, respectively. Overall, he missed only one of the 14 fairways and three greens in regulation. Today's is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 64 at last year's John Deere Classic. He began the FedEx St. Jude Classic three weeks ago with a 65 but settled for a share of 58th place. Davis is 150th in the FedExCup standings, so he needs a hot summer to retain his card.

Brian Davis authored a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing just one shot off the clubhouse lead.

He's 140th in the FedExCup standings, but Davis cashed in only two of his last seven starts and arrived riding an 0-for-4 skid. Today, he missed only two (of 14) fairways and four greens in regulation while picking off five birdies. The set included conversions from 12'2" at the par-5 third hole and 17'10" at the par-4 ninth. At last check, the Brit led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.882. Today's aggregate matches his lowest of the season, which he carded twice previously.

Brian Davis withdrew during his second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Surprisingly, and refreshingly, the Englishman was the only WD of the 33 that were stranded at darkness on Friday night. He was even through 16 holes of his second round and 4-over through 34, so he wasn't going to make the cut unless he finished ace-eagle at the par-3 and par-4 18th holes, respectively. For the record, this is his 11th mid-tournament WD in 328 PGA TOUR starts. It's his second this season (Northern Trust).

The opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial was delayed three hours due to inclement weather.

This was the concern entering the day and figures to be the narrative throughout the tournament. An inch-and-a-half of rain fell overnight and this morning. No shots have been struck. The first tee balls are now scheduled for 10:00 a.m. CT. Brian Davis and Spencer Levin will be a twosome off the 10th tee. As a result of the damp turf, lift, clean and place is allowed for the first round.

After a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Brian Davis is just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The forever-streaky Englishman started on the back nine of TPC Louisiana today and promptly jarred his 72-yard approach from the fairway for an eagle at the par-5 11th hole. That set the tone for the round that also featured five birdies, three of which ranging 12-15 feet. Davis' only blemish was a bogey-4 at the 17th hole. He arrived slotted 133rd in the FedExCup standings but 116th in earnings. That latter rank is due in part to a pair of top 10s and only one other top-45 finish among eight paydays.
Apr 23 - 3:51 PM

Brian Davis turned in a 1-over-par 39-34=73 for his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

The Brit birdied the par-4 10th to begin the day. He squared a double bogey at the par-4 11th and bogeys at the par-4 12th and 17th holes, but came home in bogey-free 2-under. His final two birdies measured 15'7" and 33'11" at the first and third holes, respectively. It's a tremendous score given the conditions and the fact that he totaled just seven greens in regulation. Davis signed his card sitting just one stroke adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.
Mar 26 - 3:03 PM

Brian Davis closed out his week at the Valspar Championship with a 2-under-par 34-35=69.

That bumps the Englishman up to 4-under 280 for the tournament, and on the bubble for a top-10 finish. His final navigation of the Copperhead Course featured four birdies and two bogeys. The birdies were all notable, dropping from 10'8" on the par-4 second, 28'9" on the par-4 10th and 21'6" on the par-4 18th to go with a pitch in on the par-3 eighth.
Mar 15 - 4:45 PM

Overnight leader Brian Davis backed up to a 5-over-par 35-41=76 in today's second round of the Valspar Championship.

This was arguably worse than he should have scored. Davis went 0-for-5 in scrambling en route to five bogeys and added a pair of three-putt bogeys. His card included five consecutive squares beginning at the 13th hole. So, he erased his handiwork on Thursday. Davis is now 1-under 141 and tied for 27th place. If there's any good news, it's that only seven strokes separate all 71 golfers the survived the cut.
Mar 13 - 8:29 PM

Brian Davis chipped in for birdie on the par-4 ninth hole to put the finishing touch on a 6-under-par 30-35=65 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship.

Davis' approach at his closing hole came to rest in the rough short of the putting surface. When his third disappeared, it was his eighth birdie of the round. The first seven were conventional. Three ran longer than 16 feet, the highlight measuring 48'11" at the par-3 15th. He missed only one of the 13 fairways and three greens in regulation, but squared two bogeys, including a three-putt at the par-4 seventh. Alex Cejka broke through for victory in his 287th start last week in Puerto Rico, so Davis might be inspired. This is the winless Englishman's 319th.

Brian Davis has withdrawn from this week's Puerto Rico Open.

He hasn't played in Puerto Rico since missing the cut in 2013, so gamers aren't going to miss him anyway. After exiting last week's Northern Trust Open with just one round complete, Davis survived the cut at The Honda Classic and posted 8-over-par 71-71-71-75=288. At last check, he sat T59 on the leaderboard.

Brian Davis posted a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in his opening round of The Honda Classic.

Back after a mysterious withdrawal after an opening 79 at last week's Northern Trust Open, the Englishman exchanged three birdies with two bogeys and a double at PGA National today. He even walked off with a feel-good birdie from 10-and-a-half feet at the par-4 ninth before signing his scorecard sitting six strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Brian Davis is entered in the field of next week's Honda Classic.

Davis did not submit a public explanation for his withdrawal from the Northern Trust Open after an opening 79. Because he completed the round, his reasoning can be shared privately with the PGA TOUR. But even if he's healthy, he's not a smart investment at PGA National where he's cashed just once in the last six editions, and that was a T47 in 2012.

Brian Davis withdrew from the Northern Trust Open following his opening round.

Davis signed for an 8-over-par 38-41=79 before calling it quits. He split eight (of 14) fairways, but hit only seven greens in regulation and squared four bogeys and three doubles. This is the 10th time that he's withdrawn mid-tournament in 317 career PGA TOUR starts. If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you. He's now 5-for-11 on the season with only two top-70 finishes.

Brian Davis sets his eyes on Riviera Country Club for this week's Northern Trust Open.

The Englishman enters the week ranked 185th in the strokes gained:tee-to-green after 10 starts this season. Davis finished T3 during the 2005 rain-shortened event but hasn't cracked the top 10 here in nine tries since then. He's finished runner-up five times on the PGA TOUR but is yet to cross the finish line a winner. Given his lack of tee-to-green game, this is not the ideal track to pull off the feat.

Brian Davis kicked off moving day at La Quinta Country Club with a 4-under-par 33-35=68.

The Englishman went off the 10th tee in the first grouping of the day and will now sleep on a 12-under 204 after 54 holes. He was coasting along playing bogey-free golf through 16 before giving one back on the par-4 eighth. It was just his third blemish of the entire tournament. Davis finished T6 last week at the Sony Open in Hawaii and is looking to ride that wave of momentum to a second consecutive top 10.
