Nick O'Hern spun a 5-under-par 30-37=67 in the opening round of the Chiquita Classic, becoming one of four men atop the leaderboard.
The Aussie began his day on the 10th hole and got to work with five birdies on his first seven holes, then offset a bogey on the 17th with an eagle at the par-5 18th. He would then trade two bogeys for a birdie on the front nine. He did his damage despite hitting just half of River Run Country Club's fairways. He tied for 24th at the Hotel Fitness Championship last week in the first leg of the Tour playoffs. Thu, Sep 5, 2013 09:01:00 PM

Nick O'Hern has been added to the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

O'Hern was the ninth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he gained entry via a sponsor exemption. The lefty sits 178th in the FedExCup standings and 170th on the money list. He's 3-for-3 with 10 of 12 rounds under par at Sedgefield, but has yet to crack a top 30.

Nick O'Hern turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Travelers Championship and enters the final round at 9-under 201.

O'Hern is playing with limited status on the PGA TOUR, so his current position inside the top 10 would be valuable at the end of tomorrow's round. After a bogey at the par-4 fourth at TPC River Highlands, he bounced back to circle birdies at the seventh, ninth and 10th holes. For the week, he's split 88.1 percent of his fairways.

Nick O'Hern is 7-under-par 67-66=133 through two rounds of the Travelers Championship and sits three swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

You have to tip your cap to the left-handed Australian. He's fared nicely this season despite ranking 174th in FedExCup points. Saddled with conditional status and limited to five starts before this week, he's lost a T10 and a T18 to at least set the stage for a fighting chance to qualify for the Tour Finals at worst. And who knows, maybe he'll crash the FedExCup Playoffs. He hit 13 greens at TPC River Highlands today en route to an eagle (via a 10-yard hole-out at the drivable par-4 15th) and four birdies. Three of his birdies deserve bold print as they traveled 28'9", 24'8" and 18'3" at the first, sixth and ninth holes, respectively.

Nick O'Hern put a bow on his first top 10 on the PGA TOUR this season with a 1-under-par 34-35=69, boosting him to 5-under 275.

O'Hern circled three birdies to just two bogeys on his final lap around TPC Southwind. His 64.29 percent driving accuracy placed him inside the top 10 in the field. Due to his top 10, he leaves Memphis with an invitation to the Travelers Championship in tow if he chooses to accept it.

Nick O'Hern shot 1-under-par 72-71=143 at the U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Ritz-Carlton Members Golf Club in Bradenton, Fla., one of two sites decided this morning.

The lefty buried just four birdies against three bogeys to finish six strokes short of joining a playoff for the final of three berths into the major. Weather prevented this site from concluding on Monday, but amateur Kevin Phelan (9-under 65-70=135) and John Hahn (8-under 65-71=136) went to bed last night knowing that they had punched their tickets to Merion. After darkness fell, John Nieporte and amateur David Snyder returned this morning to vie for the final tee time. They finished regulation at 7-under 137. Nieporte's second-round 66 included a hole-in-one at the par-3 third. Other notables that failed to qualify include: 143--Manuel Villegas ... 145--Matthew Borchert.

Nick O'Hern had his number called for the fourth time in 2013 and is in the field at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

O'Hern has made two of three cuts, with a T18 in Puerto Rico the highlight. In three attempts in this event, his best start resulted in a 68th last year. He's one of a number of guys that now must imply strategy as to whether it's better to make starts on the PGA TOUR or Tour for the remainder of the year in an effort to ensure a shot at a 2013-14 TOUR card.

Nick O’Hern will play in his fourth Valero Texas Open this week.

The Aussie has struggled to find starts, given his conditional status, but he’s made the cut on both of his trips to TPC San Antonio. He’s made both of his PGA TOUR cuts this year, with a T18 in Puerto Rico leading to a T4 at the Tour’s Chitimacha Louisiana Classic two weeks later. It’s rare to see a player of his pedigree on the junior circuit, but speaks to the state of the PGA TOUR and importance of either finishing inside the top 200 on the PGA TOUR or top 75 on the Tour to gain entry in the race for a 2013-2014 TOUR card.

Nick O'Hern is 6-under-par 70-66=136 at the midpoint of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After holing five birdies against three bogeys in his opening round at the host course, the lefty dropped in an eagle and four birdies to offset two bogeys at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course today. All things considered, he couldn't ask for a better start to his 2013 season. Spyglass Hill awaits him on Saturday.

Nick O'Hern will finally get his 2013 season underway at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The Aussie finds himself in a peculiar position. That is, he isn't fully exempt. He's played in this event three times, but none of them were anything to get to excited about. After notching a couple of top 40s in 2010 and 2011, he missed out on the cut in 2012.

Nick O’Hern is running out of time to improve his 147th spot on the money list, as the 2012 PGA TOUR season comes to a close at the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.

The lefty from Down Under has made 12 (of 25) cuts, and three of his last five, including a T22 at the Open. His lone top 10 was a tie for third at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. It’s not a stretch to think he might pull out a miracle this week, as he tied for sixth in last season’s edition.

Overnight leader Nick O'Hern signed for an even-par 34-37=71 following his second round of the Open.

Just as the Aussie accomplished en route to a course-record-tying 62 on Thursday, he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens again today, but he needed a whopping nine more putts (32) in his second round, making up the entire difference in scores. He traded two birdies with two bogeys and converted just one attempt from outside nine feet, and that was a par save from 14'1" at the fourth hole. After sleeping on a three-stroke margin, he settled for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead (at 9-under 133) as the afternoon wave began.

Nick O'Hern blistered CordeValle Golf Club in his opening round of the Open with a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-30=62, three strokes lower than the previous clubhouse co-leaders.

The lefty not only matches the course record but it's the first time he's gone as low as 62 in 175 career starts on the PGA TOUR. Needless to say, he was superb today, splitting nine (of 14) fairways and hitting 14 greens. In addition to getting up and down all four times, he converted nine birdies. The set included traditional rolls from 36'7" and 20'10" at the 18th and third holes, respectively. He also holed out from 15 yards off the green at the fourth hole for birdie. O'Hern needed just 23 putts during his round, and he couldn't have picked a better time to go low. He entered the week ranked 144th on the money list.

Nick O'Hern steps onto the tee at Hamilton Golf & Country Club in search of some form, as he has missed his last three cuts leading up to the RBC Canadian Open.

His lone top-25 finish of the year was a T3 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. Ranking 171st in both GIR and Strokes Gained-Putting show the long putter isn't getting it done for the lefty this year and the iron aren't any better. His $406,946 rank him 135th on the money list.

Nick O'Hern stepped on the 18th tee in the final round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic needing a birdie to force a playoff with Dustin Johnson, but instead the lefty pushed his tee shot into the drink and settled for a bogey and a 1-under-par 34-35=69.

The Aussie circled four birdies and squared three bogeys to finish the week at 7-under 273 and in a tie for third. This marks his best since his T3 at the 2009 Shell Houston Open. He struggled off the tee, finding just five of 14 fairways, but managed to hold 13 GIR. He will not be teeing it up at the U.S. Open
