Jeff Overton bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of The RSM Classic to conclude his fifth appearance at 11-under 271.
Overton is winless in 272 career starts finishing runner-up four times, most recently at the 2010 Greenbrier Classic. Granted, that's not very recent, but he also had logged only one top 25 over his last 44 starts (T7/2015 Honda Classic); that is, until this week. Overton began his final frame in a two-way tie for fifth and six adrift of 54-hole leader and would-be-champ Kevin Kisner. He ended up dropping one spot on the day into a three-way T6 after outpacing three bogeys with four birdies. Ranked No. 1 in the field thru 54 holes in strokes gained: putting, the 32-year-old suffered through a -0.579 in the finale. He missed three putts on the day from inside eight feet, including two for birdies. His T6 matches the same result he had in his 2011 tourney debut. Nov 22 - 7:00 PM

Jeff Overton authored a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of The RSM Classic to post 10-under 202, currently T5 on the leaderboard.

Prior to making a fifth RSM appearance this week, Overton had shot par-or-better in 13 of 14 rounds on Sea Island's par-70 Seaside Course. It translates into one finish inside the top 40 (T6/2011 debut). He opened in 6-under 64 on Seaside before an even-par 72 on the Plantation Course had him T13 and five off the pace of 36-hole leader Kevin Chappell. The 32-year-old landed eight (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation on Moving Day, currently T60 in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green. He went blemish-free dropping three par putts between seven and ten feet, and elsewhere, two of his four circles traveled in excess of 10 feet, with a long of 27'3" coming at the par-4 fifth. At last check, it all adds up to first in the field in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative 7.770. Overton is winless in 272 career starts and hasn't logged a top 25 in his last 44 starts.

With a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in his opening round of The RSM Classic, Jeff Overton shared the clubhouse lead.

Overton tackled the Seaside Course today to the tune of seven birdies, four of which from outside 13 feet. His longest measured 20-and-a-half feet at the par-4 16th hole. He squared just one bogey due to a three-putt from outside 50 feet at the par-4 eighth, but the 32-year-old averted another with a par save from 17'10" at the par-4 18th where he made the turn. After his round, he told Golf Channel's Steve Sands that he hasn't practiced at the Plantation Course, so Overton will be going in blind when he takes his one spin there on Friday.

Jeff Overton readies for his fifth start at this week's RSM Classic.

The Indiana Hoosier scored a top 10 in his 2011 debut, but hasn't backed it up in three return trips. He collected two paydays but posted nothing inside the top 45 during those starts. His game doesn't rely on distance so he's the perfect candidate to benefit from the shorter tracks this week. Gamers can use Overton as a sleeper, but shouldn't put too much trust in his direction. With seven podium finishes to his name, he is still searching for that illustrious maiden victory.

Jeff Overton arrives in Las Vegas, Nevada, ahead of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Indiana Hoosier was the final man in the field at The Barclays last season. He made his FedExCup Playoffs experience a one-stop shop as he finished T69 and failed to advance. It was the ninth consecutive season that Overton qualified for the Playoffs but he still owns just two top 25s in 20 post-season starts. Entering the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season, Overton owns seven career podium finishes but is still searching for that elusive maiden victory.
Oct 20 - 8:17 AM

Jeff Overton opens up his 2015 FedEx Cup Playoffs at this week's Barclays.

The Indiana Hoosier heads into the stretch run ranked 125th in the FEC standings. He made it this far by chipping away, one FEC point at a time. Other than a T7 at the Honda Classic which yielded 83 points, his highest return was 43 points at the Memorial. Overton brings a 16-for-29 record into Plainfield Country Club this week, and can be safely overlooked by gamers.
Aug 24 - 8:52 PM

Jeff Overton carded a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National, checking up two strokes off adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Overton has submitted one of the most underwhelming successful seasons to date. He's 109th in the FedExCup standings thanks to 15 paydays, only one of which is a top 25 (T7, Honda). Yet, he's 147th on the money list, which used to be the only measure of success on the PGA TOUR. Today's aggregate matches his season low. While that's impressive on one level, that he hadn't beaten 65 in 82 prior rounds puts a different spin on things. The 32-year-old sandwiched a lone bogey at the par-4 10th hole with seven birdies, three of which from outside 12 feet. His longest stretched 41'1" at the par-5 eight hole. Overton also salvaged par with a hole-out from the rough 10 yards away at the par-4 12th.
Jul 30 - 6:32 PM

Jeff Overton has withdrawn from this week's Barbasol Championship.

Despite a smattering of red numbers over the last few months, Overton hasn't found a top 25 since a T7 at The Honda Classic. Winless in 262 PGA TOUR starts and a repeat offender in terms of questionable public behavior, it's a constant wonder if the 32-year-old will ever catch up to the expectations with which he left Indiana University 10 years ago. He's currently 108th in the FedExCup standings and likely to retain his card as he continues to aggravate faithful gamers.
Jul 13 - 12:31 PM

Jeff Overton has many fond memories to cite as he readies for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Overton finished runner-up here in the inaugural 2010 running. He fell victim to Stuart Appleby's final-round 59, losing by one stroke when all was said and done. Regardless, the Indiana Hoosier has to think fondly of this venue as it's still one of the closest chances he's gotten to victory on the PGA TOUR. If you're into a redemption story, then Overton should certainly warrant consideration this week.
Jul 1 - 8:10 PM

Jeff Overton crafted a 4-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, reaching the midpoint in 5-under 134, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Overton hasn't been relevant most of the season with only one top 25, but he's 98th in the FedExCup standings. He's poised to pad his record if not finally pick off his first PGA TOUR win. This is his 257th career start. He connected for an eagle-3 and four birdies at TPC Four Seasons today. They covered bogey-5s at Nos. 15 and 18. Yes, he birdie the modified par-3 14th hole.
May 29 - 4:23 PM

Jeff Overton navigated TPC Sawgrass to the tune of a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round.

When he signed his card, he held a share of the very early clubhouse lead. It helps considerably that he went out in the first threesome off the first tee. Overton went 4-for-4 in scrambling and buried only one try from outside nine feet. That was a walk-off par from 16 feet at the par-4 18th hole. He cashed in five of seven previous appearances, but has yet to find a top 25, instead settling for a trio os T26s.
May 7 - 12:17 PM

Jeff Overton missed the cut in his RBC Heritage debut in 2012 and makes his return to Harbour Town Golf Links slotted 80th in the FedExCup standings.

On the season, Overton's T7 at Honda remains his only top 25 in 14 events. In his last two starts on the Texas swing, he finished T50-MC. The 31-year-old ranks 45th on TOUR in scoring average and 73rd in par-4 scoring, which conceivably could give him a chance at the weekend, but 188th in total driving will make it an uphill battle from the get-go.
Apr 14 - 5:18 PM

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Overton withdrew during his second round of this tournament last year with his recurring wrist injury. He's cashed just twice in five trips with no better with a T47 in 2009, so gamers won't miss him. He's cashed nine of 12 times this season, but only once for a top 25 (T7, Honda), so his relatively lofty position at 64th in the FedExCup standings is a bit deceiving.
Mar 16 - 11:18 AM

Jeff Overton concluded The Honda Classic in 1-under-par 33-36=69.

Overton was due for a good week. He hadn't finished better than T29 at Mayakoba in nine starts this season, but sat T8 at last check at PGA National. While he bogeyed both holes where he didn't find the green in regulation in his finale, he compensated with three birdies, including a round-long conversion from 18'10" at the par-4 second hole. He went in the books at 3-under 277. At the time he signed his card, he co-led the field in GIR with 51.
Mar 2 - 10:12 AM

Jeff Overton submitted a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The Honda Classic and is in the mix for a top 10 at 2-under 208.

Overton traded three birdies for two bogey on his navigation of PGA National's Champion Course. His first two birdies were of note, holing a 13'6" birdie from just off the green at the par-5 third hole and a 10'8" birdie at the par-3 fifth hole. He ended his round with a 9'4" birdie at the par-5 18th. It's been a tough 2014-15 PGA TOUR season for the veteran. Not only has he failed to record a top-10 finish, he hasn't even cracked the top 25 to this point. That certainly looks subject to change this week.
