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. Feb 26 - 3:36 PM

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 This is the 10th time that he's withdrawn mid-tournament in 317 career PGA TOUR starts.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.

Brian Davis scored his first top-10 finish of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Sony Open.

At the time of his posting, the Englishman was tied for fourth at 12-under 268. His final navigation of Waialae Country Club featured four birdies and a lone bogey. With the exception of a 25'8" birdie on the par-4 second hole, each of the circles on his scorecard came from inside of 10 feet. He began his week ranked 206th in the FedExCup standings, so this is just what the doctor ordered.

Brian Davis posted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Davis arrived in Hawaii without a top-35 finish in 13 consecutive starts, but he always puts together a run and secures status. However, now 40 years of age, we need to take the approach that the long-term silence is more of the norm. Today at Waialae, he countered two bogeys with six birdies, including three in a row to conclude his round on the track's front side. Among his notable conversions for birdie were rolls of 18'7", 23'4" and 13'3" at Nos. 13, 7 and 8, respectively. He also poured in a 13-footer for par at the par-4 first. Today's score is his lowest in 15 career competitive rounds on Waialae. The Englishman signed his card sitting four strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Brian Davis has yet to crack the top 70 in any 2014-15 PGA TOUR event to start the new season.

The veteran has made two of his five cuts, with the paydays coming in the form of a 73rd at the CIMB Classic and a T73 in The McGladrey Classic. That has him weighing in at 201st in the FedExCup standings. Davis has been a stalwart on the PGA TOUR since 2005, but went without a top 10 last season. It appears the 40-year-old may be starting to slip, so invest with caution until he proves otherwise.

Brian Davis hopes the third time is a charm for him in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba this week.

The Englishman has made the cut in each of his previous two trips to El Camaleón GC, but has never done any better than a share of 49th in 2009. This season is not off to a good start, as he's 195th in the FedExCup standings with two missed cuts, a T73 and a solo 73 on his ledger. Since turning 40 in August of 2014, he's failed to crack a top 35 on the PGA TOUR.

Brian Davis is set for the Open at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course.

The veteran easily retained his PGA TOUR card by finishing 110th on the FedExCup standings, but Davis didn't earn a top 10 in any of his 28 starts. Now 40 years old, it's likely that he is past his prime. While he offers the stability of making more than his share of cuts, it's growing less likely that he will ever earn a breakthrough victory.

Brian Davis begins his week at The Barclays ranked 100th in the FedExCup standings.

The Englishman could make it onto the Deutsche Bank Championship with a missed cut, but that would require everyone behind him to also fail. A safer plan for Davis would involve a replication of his 2008 Barclays performance where he tied for a piece of 38th place. Ranking 23rd in driving accuracy on the season, but 158th in greens hit, Davis will need to get his irons figured out this week if he wants to contend.

Brian Davis has been removed from the published field of this week's Barracuda Championship.

He missed the cut in Canada and hasn't finished inside a top 35 since a T14 at Colonial, but the Brit is 97th in the FedExCup standings. He's competed in each of the first seven editions of the Playoffs, surviving the first leg in all. Davis will embark on his eighth appearance in three weeks.

Brian Davis will get introduced to Royal Montreal Golf Club at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Davis is securely fastened in the FedExCup Playoff race, currently sitting in the 94th position. Playing with no pressure, and against a weaker field, the Englishman will return to his search for his maiden PGA TOUR victory. With five career runner-up finishes, gamers could do worse if they are looking for an under the radar, high-upside option.

Brian Davis earned his share of 8th place in the 2013 Quicken Loans National and returns to take on Congressional Country Club in this week's edition.

The Englishman enters the week ranked 94th in the FedExCup standings. He's played the weekend in five of his last six events, finishing inside the top 15 on two of those occasions. Good form parlayed with good course history makes Davis a very intriguing sleeper this week.

Brian Davis completed 36 holes of the Memorial in 7-over-par 72-79=151 and will miss the cut.

The Brit began the week as a sleeper given two top 15s in his last three starts and top 25s in his last three trips to Muirfield Village. Instead, his failure to escape trouble fueled a lunchtime exit today. Davis hit only eight greens in regulation in the second round and squared five bogeys, one double and a snowman at the par-5 15th hole. Three birdies did nothing more than prevent an 80 or worse.
