Nick Flanagan will defend his title at the BMW Charity Pro-Am this week on the Tour.
Flanagan picked up his fourth victory on the Tour in last year's Pro-Am, and heads back to South Carolina chasing a solid week. He's trending well this year, with a T9 to start the season in Panama and a T4 at the WNB Golf Classic in April. Of note, the three-course rotation has experienced a little turnover since last year. The Reserve at Lake Keowee joins The Greenville Country Club's Chanticleer Course and Thornblade Club in the rotation for the first three rounds, with Thornblade seeing all the action on Sunday.

After firing a final-round 4-under-par 34-33=67 at the BMW Charity Pro-Am, Nick Flanagan outlasted Cameron Percy in a three-hole playoff to claim his first Nationwide Tour victory since 2007.

Flanagan was a star on the Nationwide Tour in 2007, earning a battlefield promotion to the PGA TOUR for winning three times in one season. One of those three victories came at the BMW Charity Pro-Am. It's been a long road back for the Aussie, and he earned a spot in the playoff after making an unlikely birdie at the difficult par-4 18th when his approach bounced off the hospitality tent and rolled to 15 feet. He didn't waste his good fortune, as he went bogey-par-par in the playoff to hoist the trophy once again. He ended the week at 15-under 67-70-67-67=271 in what was his second event on the Nationwide Tour this season.

Nick Flanagan withdrew from the second stage of Q School in California on Thursday, citing back spasms.

The Aussie shot an opening round 79 before calling it quits at Oak Valley GC in Beaumont. He dealt with the ailment all year, landing at 169th on the PGA Tour money list. The WD means that he will be returning to the Nationwide Tour and will be limited to seven sponsor's exemptions on the PGA Tour in 2009. "It is a very disappointing finish to the year but something that I have to deal with and get resolved before the 2009 season begins," he said in a statement. "Hopefully I will be able to participate at the (Australian) PGA Championship (Dec. 4-7) and Australian Open (Dec. 11-14) but at this stage it is touch and go." Because Flanagan has lost his PGA Tour status, we will leave him off our injury list.

Nick Flanagan chased an opening 69 with a 7-under-par 65 in the second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

At 10-under-par, Flanagan is four swings off the clubhouse lead. His putting has been brilliant as he's taken just 47 strokes on the greens this week, including 21 today. After a very quiet start of the year, the Aussie has been making headlines lately, most notably for sharing the 36- and 54-holes leads in Milwaukee, where he faded to a T-11 finish.

Nick Flanagan crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 63 in the second round of the U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee.

Flanagan's 63 is a personal best in his brief career on the PGA Tour. Combined with his opening 67, Flanagan shares the early clubhouse lead through 36 holes. It's been a learning curve of a rookie season for the Aussie as he's missed 10 of 19 cuts and sits well outside the Top 144 on the FedExCup points list (he's 165th). His T-9 at the Mayakoba is his career-best finish.

Nick Flanagan carded a 3-under 69 in the opening round of the Wachovia Championship.

Entering the year with lots of hype, we haven't been able to report lots of success on the Aussie. However, that might be changing as today's effort comes on the tails of a T-19 at last week's Nelson. Today, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 GIR, leading to six birdies. If the greens firm up as they're expected to on Friday, Flanagan will need his iron game to be sharp as the putter is his weakness.

Nick Flanagan fired the low round of the day when he carded a 6-under-par 64 to finish tied for ninth place at the Mayakoba Golf Classic.

It's been a frustrating year for fantasy owners of Flanagan, with four missed cuts in the five prior events. Today's round of seven birdies and one bogey is a good reminder why he was so highly thought of among this year's group of new players on the Tour. He is currently in the field for next week's Honda Classic.

Nick Flanagan posted a pair of 74s in the first two rounds at the Northern Trust Open and will miss the cut.

Flanagan is off to a terrible start in 2008. His only paycheck in five events was a result of an MDF at the Buick Invite. It's been a case of course mismanagement all season for the Aussie. And he's had tremendous trouble putting, something with which he is not familiar. Perhaps the change of scenery as the tour heads east will help turn things around. He's is in the published field at next week's Mayakoba held at El Camaleon, a putter's paradise.

Nick Flanagan is in the published field for next week's Sony Open.

Last year, after earning the automatic promotion to the PGA Tour for winning three events on the Nationwide Tour, the 2003 U.S. Amateur champ posted a pair of Top 20s in the Fall Series. Then, he returned home where his best finish in three events was T-56. Flanagan is just 23 and one of a plethora of Australian young guns. His game belongs on the PGA Tour and he should be considered in the middle-to-late rounds.

Nick Flanagan shot a final round of 2-under-par 70 to finish in a tie for 18th place.

Flanagan had to wait four weeks because of the FedEx Cup Playoffs to enjoy his promotion from the Nationwide Tour, but it worth the wait as his T-18 finish is the best ever debut by a "battlefield" graduate from the Nationwide Tour. He is scheduled to play next at the upcoming Viking Classic in Madison, Mississippi.

The Nationwide Tour's Nick Flanagan earned a "battlefield" promotion to the PGA, but won't be able to play until late September.

Flanagan posted his third victory on the Nationwide Tour last Sunday at the Xerox Classic, and under the rules of the two tours, those three victories (within a year) mean an automatic promotion to the PGA Tour. Unfortunately, with the current FedExCup playoffs, he won't be eligible to play until the Turning Stone Resort Championship in Verona, New York (September 20-23). The 23-year-old Australian, winner of the 2003 U.S. Amateur Championship, gained his Xerox victory by running in a dramatic 30-footer on the 18th hole Sunday for a 63 and a one-stroke win over James Driscoll, who closed with a 71.
