Soren Kjeldsen twirled an 8-under-par 32-32=64 in today's third round of the Memorial to post 12-under 204, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead and tying the low round of the week with two others. UPDATE: With play completed, Kjeldsen is in a three-way T8, two back of a trio of 54-hole co-leaders.
The last two Memorial champs won their maiden PGA TOUR titles at Muirfield Village. The Dane is trying to make it three. He arrived off T43 (PLAYERS), T19 in Ireland and a MC last week in England. The 43rd-ranked player in the world began R3 on 4-under (T43) after opening in 71-69, eight back of 36-hole co-leaders Brendan Steele and Matt Kuchar. He split 13 (of 14) fairways for a second time and currently leads in that stat at 90.48 percent (38/42). The 41-year-old squared a lone bogey at the par-4 17th but erased it with nine birdies, including two from greater than 38 feet. In total, he made 175 feet of putts in R3, capping with a 13'3" walk-off birdie at the last. His 64 is a career low on TOUR in 99 laps (previously 66 four times). Jun 4 - 2:01 PM

Søren Kjeldsen won last year's Dubai Duty Free Irish Open at Royal County Down and will attempt to win it again at the K Club this week.

In gusting winds 12 months ago, the Dane let a two-shot overnight lead slip but came through a play-off against England’s Eddie Pepperell and Austria’s Bernd Wiesberger to secure his first European Tour win since 2009. His previous best in the event was T6 at Fota Island in 2002 while he also made the top 20 when T18 at Carton House in 2013. The tournament moves to the K Club this year and he knows the course well having contested six European Opens there although his best was a modest T25 in 2000. Kjeldsen is 11th on the Race to Dubai this season thanks mainly to an impressive T7 at the Masters last month. He followed that with T4 in the Open de Espana while he took T43 in The PLAYERS Championship on Sunday.

Soren Kjeldsen maintained the good form displayed by last week's top ten at Augusta National in finishing T4 at the Open de Espana, ending the week with a fine 3-under-par 32-36=68 to post 4-over 288.

The Dane has now finished T2-1-T2-T49-T4 in his last five starts at the southern Spanish venue - so you have to believe that he hopes it will once again become a permanent fixture on the schedule. He may have encountered jet lag early in the week, but on Sunday he raced through the field. On the front nine he circled red at 4, 6, 8 and 9. Bogies on 5 and 13 were a setback but a final birdie on 17 clinched the top five finish, thanks largely to just 27 putts. He was ultimately left three strokes off the winning total of 285 set by Andrew Johnston.

World No. 44 Soren Kjeldsen crafted a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the Masters for a 72-hole total of even-par 288, up one on the leaderboard to a three-way T7 and securing him an invite to next year's Masters.

The 40-year-old, a pre-tourney 400/1 outright, didn't win, but his T7 gets him back for a fourth chance and easily supplants his previous best of T30 in his last appearance in 2010. It's also just his second top 10 in 18 major appearances, joining-up with a T6 at the 2009 PGA Championship. Kjeldsen began Sunday's play on 1-over (T8), four in arrears to 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation registering a tidy 1.61 putts per GIR and remarkably, suffered his first three-putt of the tourney from a mere five feet on the par-3 16th. The Dane's totals for the week were 13 birdies, four in R4, including a walk-off from 8'0", and 13 bogeys (three in R4).
Apr 10 - 9:12 PM

Søren Kjeldsen steadied a 2-over-par 36-38=74 during the third round of the 80th Masters to remain in contention at 1-over 217.

The Dane gave away two strokes early with bogeys at the par-4 first and the par-5 second holes. The latter one stinging a bit more, considering it's one of the few birdie holes on the course this week. His putter remained dormant as he whiffed on a seven-foot birdie attempt at the par-4 fifth. Kjeldsen did tack on a pair of birdie on Nos. 6 and 8, totaling just 10 feet of total putts made on those two circles. The putter finally made a splash on the par-5 13th hole when he fired in a 35-footer for birdie. Despite the overall poor putting performance, Kjeldsen signed for a 74 in very difficult, windy conditions. Missing the cut in his last four major championship appearances, he's already well ahead of expectations.
Apr 9 - 8:38 PM

World No. 44 Soren Kjeldsen signed for a 2-over-par 37-37=74 after the second round of the Masters for a two-day tally of 1-under 143, currently T7 on the leaderboard.

This is the Dane's third Masters and first since a T30 in 2010 (70-71-75-75), also missing the cut in 2009. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways with an average driving distance of 259 yards, and thru two days has hit 82 percent (23/28). The 40-year-old, who finished 15th in the final Race to Dubai standings last year, hit 14 greens in regulation and posted a pedestrian 1.83 putts per GIR. After circling five on the card in R1, he mustered just one on Friday at the par-5 second, overshadowed by bogeys on Nos. 4, 9 and 18, two of those on failed sand saves, including on the finishing hole.
Apr 8 - 3:57 PM

Søren Kjeldsen opened his week at Augusta National Golf Club with a 3-under-par 37-32=69 to sit three stroke off the current pace set by Jordan Spieth.

The Dane was not sharp to open the round, relying on a pair of par-savers from outside nine feet to remain bogey-free through five holes. The putter couldn't save him over the next two holes as he dropped a shot on each. From there, he bounced back with a seven-foot birdie roll on the par-5 eighth hole and the rest is history as he cruised on the inward nine. Kjeldsen dialed it in from downtown yet again, rolling in a 15-foot birdie splash on the par-3 12th to kick-start his back nine. The Dane added three more circles coming in to close out in style. Kjeldsen is making his first Masters appearance since 2010 (T30) and is just 1-for-2 overall in his career here.
Apr 7 - 7:44 PM

Soren Kjeldsen is winless in two World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play appearances so hopes new venue Austin Country Club offers improved prospects.

The Dane went 0-2 over six years ago, when playing the 2009 and 2010 renewals. In the first of those years he also had a rough time of it in the 2009 Seve Trophy when he was 1-4, gaining his only point with a singles win over Simon Dyson. Earlier this year, however, Kjeldsen was undefeated in the EurAsia Cup, claiming two halves with Victor Dubuisson and adding a win against Prayad Marksaeng. He lines up in Group 12 alongside Hideki Matsuyama, Kevin Kisner and Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

Søren Kjeldsen preps for his tournament debut at this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The Dane arrives this week having finished T28 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship in his latest start. Overseas, he cracked the top 10 as recent as six weeks ago (Omega Dubai Desert Classic). Kjeldsen doesn't make many appearances in the States, as this week's API will be just his 30th career start on the PGA Tour. Nine of those coming at the Open Championship, or WGC HSBC Champions, oversea events. Gamers should not sleep on Kjeldsen this week as he sports 58 top 10s in 433 career European Tour starts.
Mar 16 - 5:22 PM

Søren Kjeldsen was 15th on last season's Race to Dubai and continues his 2016 campaign at this week's Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship.

The Dane racked up nine top 10s, including a win at the Irish Open, in his best season in Europe since 2009 although the first of those didn't come until May. He looked out of gas when down the field at the Nedbank Golf Challenge before Christmas but, with the batteries refreshed, won two points out of three to help Europe score a convincing victory in last week's EurAsia Cup in Malaysia. Kjeldsen has played in all 10 editions of this event but hasn't managed better than T24 on debut in 2006 while he's missed three of his last four cuts. At least his most recent trip to the United Arab Emirates resulted in a T10 at the 2015 show closer, the DP World Tour Championship.
Jan 18 - 3:51 PM

The top 20 in the final Race to Dubai standings earned exemptions into the 2016 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Fifteen of the 20 were not yet exempt into the limited field, no-cut, cash-and-points grab at Trump National Doral on March 3-6. Søren Kjeldsen placed 15th to secure his fifth appearance but first since 2010. Today's other qualifiers (with R2D finish in parentheses): Danny Willett (2nd); Branden Grace (3rd); Shane Lowry (5th); Byeong-Hun An (7th); Andy Sullivan (8th); Bernd Wiesberger (9th); Thongchai Jaidee (10th); Victor Dubuisson (11th); Matt Fitzpatrick (12th); Kiradech Aphibarnrat (13th); Kristoffer Broberg (14th); Chris Wood (17th); Ross Fisher (19th); Anirban Lahiri (20th).

Søren Kjeldsen stalled on the back nine and finished joint runner-up in the British Masters at Woburn with a 2-under-par 32-37=69.

The Dane, who captured May's Irish Open, looked good for his second win of the season when shooting four birdies against a single bogey on the Marquess' course's front nine. But a 1-over 37 coming home wasn't good enough and he finished two shots behind Matt Fitzpatrick and level with Shane Lowry and Fabrizio Zanotti in tied second on 13-under 271. Kjeldsen hit 17 greens in regulation in both weekend rounds but took 34 putts in each and ultimately that cost him. He also missed just one GIR on Thursday but needed just 29 putts in his opening 65. However, he remains a golden goose for fantasy managers and his result in England this week follows back-to-back top 10s in Scotland and Germany.

With a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in Friday's second round, Søren Kjeldsen moved into a tie for the lead at the British Masters in England.

The Dane shares top spot with Matt Fitzpatrick on 9-under 133 after a lap of the Marquess course at Woburn which featured five birdies and two bogeys. Kjelden started out with six pars before dropping a shot at 16 but got it back with a birdie-2 at the next. On his second nine, he pressed the accelerator with further gains at 1, 3, 5 and 6 while also swallowing a bogey at 2. The 40-year-old is playing in his 26th event of the season but is happy to keep the engine ticking over. "When you play nicely you just want to keep going. I've always enjoyed playing a lot," said Kjeldsen, who is coming off back-to-back top 10s. "I know a lot of guys take a lot of time off but I love the competition, I love to be out there, I feel that's why I improve so I've always had the strategy of playing a lot." Kjeldsen split 11 (of 14) fairways for the second day running while he hit 14 greens in regulation in round two and was 3-for-4 in scrambling.

Søren Kjeldsen hung up a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round at the British Masters in England, good enough for a tie of second place.

And so it goes on. The little Dane is barely off a leaderboard these days and, following another pair of top 10s in the last fortnight, he's on target for another after a bright start on the Marquess course at Woburn. Kjeldsen set the tone with a birdie-birdie start and added another three in succession at 18, 1 and 2. He posted a final par breaker at 7 and eventually settled just a shot behind leader Matt Fitzpatrick. The 40-year-old missed just a single green in regulation after splitting 11 (of 14) fairways. To highlight the turnaround in his game, Kjeldsen is now 65-under in his last 13 events having been 25-over in his previous 13.

Søren Kjeldsen toured Kingsbarns in 7-under-par 31-34=65 to post the early clubhouse lead on day one of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland.

The Dane, who won the Irish Open at Royal County Down earlier this year, again showed his liking for links golf with a bogey-free lap of the par 72 -- one of three courses being used over the first three days. Under blue skies and a noticeable lack of wind, Kjeldsen started with a pair of pars at 10 and 11 and then reeled off five birdies in his next seven holes to turn in 31. He picked up a further shot at 3 and added a walk-off birdie at 9 to set the early target. His best previous finish in this event is T8 in 2006.
