Spencer Levin rattled off a clutch performance last week and now turns his attention to the Deutsche Bank Championship.
Levin arrived at last week's Barclays ranked 115th in the FedExCup standings. The University of New Mexico product could have laid down his sword and called it a year, but instead went out and finished T16. The finish catapulted him into this week's field, where he currently sits in 80th position. Levin now has back-to-back top 20s and should be considered a very lively sleeper threat. Sep 3 - 10:16 PM

With only the top 100 in the FedExCup rankings advancing to this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, Spencer Levin secured his spot with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of The Barclays to tie for 16th place at 5-under 275.

Levin posted rounds of 65-71-67-72 to move from 115th in the FEC standings to 80th. Joining him in cracking the top 100 this week were PGA TOUR rookie Zac Blair (106 to 45), Mark Wilson (114 to 85), Luke Donald (119 to 87), Carlos Ortiz (112 to 83), Camilo Villegas (123 to 99), Jason Dufner (103 to 82) and Johnson Wagner (101 to 92). Hudson Swafford entered the week as the bubble boy at No. 100 and bumped to 93rd with a T50-finish. 17 players were eliminated from the Playoffs following The Barclays, most notably Adam Scott (94 to 106), Lee Westwood (110 to 109), Francesco Molinari, who was idle (99 to 111), and Nick Taylor (102 to 101). Taylor, the only rookie to win this season on TOUR, is in the running for Rookie of the Year, but his first-round exit may dampen his chances as six fellow rookies are moving on to the second round.

Spencer Levin tacked on a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of The Barclays at Plainfield Country Club for a 54-hole aggregate of 7-under 203, four off the pace of co-leaders Sangmoon Bae and Jason Day.

At No. 412 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Levin is the lowest-ranked player in the field this week in Edison, New Jersey. Fortunately, the Playoffs are about FedExCup points, and the 31-year-old secured his spot in the postseason with a final-round, 7-under 63 at last week's Wyndham to post T18, and entered the week 115th in the standings. On his round, Levin circled five birdies against two bogeys to move up one spot on the leaderboard and jump to a projected 65th in FEC points. The 31-year-old landed 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, registering a -0.004 in strokes gained: putting. Come Sunday, he'll be looking for his second top 10 of the season (T10, Shriners Hospitals for Children Open) in his 30th start. He's yet to win on the PGA TOUR in 173 prior starts as a pro.

Overnight quad-leader Spencer Levin settled for a 1-over-par 34-37=71 in today's second round of The Barclays and posted 4-under 136 at the halfway point, three strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Levin mimicked his opener by converting birdies on three of his first six holes again today, including a beauty from 45'7" at the par-4 13th hole. However, he'd played the remainder today in birdie-free 4-over with four bogeys, including a three-putt from way outside at the par-5 16th. Given he totaled only 11 greens in regulation, it's not a surprising score, but it affirms the premium on avoiding mistakes on a challenging layout.

Spencer Levin enjoyed a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in today's opening round of The Barclays and shares the clubhouse lead.

Levin strode into town having tied for 18th at the Wyndham Championship. It was his best finish since a T11 at the Farmers over six months ago. Riding that momentum, he navigated Plainfield Country Club to the tune of 11 (of 14) fairways hit and 14 greens in regulation. Levin circled six birdies, three of which from outside 11 feet, the longest measuring 29'10" at the par-3 third hole. He'd drop a shot at the par-3 14th but escaped with par after his 16-footer fell for a 4 at No. 13. He's winless in 173 PGA TOUR starts, and Camilo Villegas (2008 BMW Championship) is the only golfer to record his breakthrough title in the Playoffs, but Levin is positioned where he needs to be to make a run at joining the Colombian in the club.

Spencer Levin makes his way back to this week's Barclays after a three-year recess.

Levin finished the regular season with a record of 16-for-29, closing out at 115th in the FedExCup. He's missed two of his three cuts when appearing at the Barclays. The University of New Mexico product hasn't finished better than T37 in six career FEC Playoffs starts. Gamers should not invest too much into Levin this week at Plainfield Country Club.

Spencer Levin matched a season best with a 7-under-par 32-31=63 in the finale of the Wyndham Championship to conclude at 11-under 269, up 35 spots on the leaderboard at the time he signed his card.

Levin entered the week No. 122 in the FedExCup standings with just one top 10 in 28 starts (T10, Shriners Hospitals for Children). He began the day at 4-under (T52), 11 off the pace but seven back of the overnight top 10. The 31-year-old was 2-under on his round thru 12 holes, offsetting a lone bogey at the par-4 10th with birdie at the par-4 eighth (from 14'4") and an eagle at the par-5 fifth from 12'7". Beginning at the 13th, Levin played his final six holes in 5-under circling three straight on Nos. 13-15 and two more on 17 and 18 for the birdie-birdie finish. In total, five of his par breakers came from outside of 10 feet, including a 10'1" roll at the last for the walk-off. Levin's 63 matches a season best which he shot in round two of the Shriners. With play still in progress, he's projected at 115th in the FEC standings.
Aug 23 - 2:04 PM

At 122nd in the FedExCup standings, Spencer Levin returns to the Wyndham Championship after a four-year hiatus to bolster his tenuous FedExCup standing.

Levin missed the cut in his Sedgefield Country Club debut in 2009 and hasn't played the tournament since a T53 in 2010. He's 15-for-28 on the season with five top 25s, including back-to-back T22s at the AT&T Byron Nelson and the FedEx St. Jude Classic. In seven events since, he's missed four cuts, including his last three starts, and cracked the top 40 once, a T39 at the opposite-field Barbasol Championship. His season best (and only top 10) is a T10 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open back in October. Driving accuracy and greens in regulation are the 31-year-old's strong suit, but sits 155th on TOUR in the all-around ranking.
Aug 18 - 11:56 PM

Spencer Levin continued to minimize his mistakes in today's second round of the John Deere Classic after which he signed for a 4-under-par 34-33=67.

After Thursday's bogey-free 66, Levin landed 15 greens in regulation and covered a singular bogey with five birdies today. The par breakers included conversions from 12'2" and 24'6" at Nos. 9 and 14, respectively. At 9-under 133, he's only three shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. The 30-year-old will go into the weekend with his latest reasonable chance at his first PGA TOUR title. This week's JDC is his 168th start as a professional.
Jul 10 - 7:15 PM

Spencer Levin crafted a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the John Deere Classic, posting up three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

After a relatively solid start to the season, Levin has gently drifted to 107th in the FedExCup standings, but that's better than the alternative. Today at TPC Deere Run, he went 5-for-5 in scrambling and circled five birdies. The set included conversions from 29'7", 12'7" and 20'10" at Nos. 14, 16 and 8, respectively. His greatest test to keep the scorecard blemish-free occurred at the par-4 13th where he hit the green in regulation but left himself with a comebacker for par from 11'1". This is Levin's lowest aggregate in any opening round since he signed for the same at the 2012 JDC.
Jul 9 - 1:32 PM

Spencer Levin arrives at this week's John Deere Classic ranked 107th in the FedExCup standings.

Levin has climbed the FEC ranks through the old adage of quantity over quality, as he readies for his 24th start of the season. His track record at TPC Deere Run is above average, as he's finished top 40 each of his past three visits after missing the cut in his 2005 debut. Levin has compiled 14 top 10s in 168 career starts. Using that ratio of success, gamers could say he is due for another top 10 very soon.
Jul 8 - 8:14 AM

Spencer Levin posted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing three shots back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

He opened with a birdie from 20'7" at the par-4 10th hole and walked off with birdie from 17'10" at the par-4 ninth. In between, Levin rolled in an eagle from 19'2" at the par-5 16th, circled a zero-putt birdie from six yards away at the par-3 fourth and connected for yet another birdie at the par-4 seventh, this time from 18 feet. Bogeys at 17, 5 and 6 left him 3-for-6 in scrambling, but he signed for what is his lowest aggregate in a first round since opening the 2014 WMPO with the same over 16 months ago. After meeting the terms of his Major Medical Extension in the fall, he's drifted to 113th in the FedExCup standings, but a big week in Memphis would all but eliminate concern of him getting to the Playoffs.
Jun 11 - 3:24 PM

Spencer Levin makes his fifth career appearance at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Levin arrives in moderate form, collecting a T22 in his latest start, the AT&T Byron Nelson. On the whole, he ranks 119th in the FedExCup standings after 20 starts. Levin is 2-for-4 here at TPC Southwind, including a T15 in 2011. Gamers should consider him as a sleeper this week, but nothing more.
Jun 10 - 8:04 PM

Spencer Levin sets his sights on Quail Hollow Club this week at the Wells Fargo Championship.

Levin needs a boost to his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign --and his 110th-place ranking in the FedExCup standings-- but it may not come this week. The 30-year-old has gotten the early boot in three of his four previous loops at the WFC, with a T32-finish in the 2012 edition as his only cash. On the season, Levin has made 10 of 17 weekends but he's only mustered one top 10 (T10, Shriners Hospitals for Children Open), and that was way back in October. Over his last 10 starts, he's missed the cut five times and has only cracked the top 30 once.
May 12 - 9:15 PM

Spencer Levin makes his way back to Harbour Town Golf Links for this week's RBC Heritage.

Levin has feasted on Harbour Town's short and tight layout. He's 5-for-5 at this venue with no finishes worse than last year's T38. It's a perfect pairing on paper as well, as Levin relies on accuracy over distance and plays conservatively. He is 9-for-14 on the season and gamers should have no hesitation backing him this week.
