Jeff Overton fired a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a two-day total of 5-under 137, two adrift of early 36-hole clubhouse leader Hideki Matsuyama.
Overton went off the 10th tee with William McGirt (67/R2) and they lost their third, Carl Pettersson, after five holes (WD). Apparently, the now duo enjoyed the lightened load, particularly Overton, as he posted the low lap of the day thus far. The 32-year-old, who posted an even-par 71 in R1 (two birdies, one eagle, four bogeys), bogeyed his opening hole (failed scramble) and then played his final 17 holes in blemish-free 6-under. He circled five birdies on just 10 greens in regulation and added a short chip-in for birdie at the rambunctious par-3 16th hole. Feb 5 - 2:58 PM

Overnight quad-leader Jeff Overton back-pedaled to a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the second round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 9-under 135, down 18 spots on the leaderboard to a five-way T19.

Making his seventh consecutive CBC appearance, Overton co-lead with three others after 18 holes. In yesterday's loop of the Nicklaus Tournament Course, he circled nine birdies against one bogey, including five straight at one point. Today's lap of the TPC Stadium Course was significantly less enjoyable, with just two birdies against one dropped shot. The 32-year-old, still winless on TOUR in his 274th career start, found just five (of 14) fairways in round two and only 10 greens in regulation en route to a -2.558 mark in strokes gained: tee-to-green. After circling par breakers on all four par 5s on day one, he failed to birdie any of the four par 5s in his second round.

Jeff Overton torched Jack Nicklaus Tournament Course with an opening round, 8-under-par 32-32=64 at this week's CareerBuilder Challenge.

The Indiana Hoosier product plodded his way around the course, averaging just 297 yards off the tee in round one (T70 at time of signing scorecard). He did his damage through accuracy, splitting 10 (of 14) fairways, leading to 13 par-breaking opportunities on the greens. Overton converted on seven of those, and circled a couple more birdies from off the green, to boot. After a T6 at The RSM Classic and two very low rounds at last week's Sony Open, it appears his stock ticker is on the rise.

Jeff Overton crafted a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii to post 11-under 199, up 29 spots on the day and good for a share of the early 54-hole clubhouse lead with Japan's Daisuke Kataoka.

After opening in 70-65, Overton began Moving Day on 5-under (T36), seven back of 36-hole leader Brandt Snedeker. It was a tale of two nines for the 32-year-old going out in bogey-free 5-under 30 and then stalling out after the break, outpacing a lone bogey with two birdies the rest of the way. In total, he landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, converting six the conventional way, including three straight to begin the round, and added a chip-in birdie-3 at the eighth. Overton missed a prime scoring chance from 5'7" at the 17th and then swallowed a bogey at the par-5 18th, skulling his third shot out of the green side bunker, ricocheting off the grandstands, and then failing to get up-and down for par from there. Overton went T6 (RSM) in his last start and hasn't had consecutive top 10s since the 2010 season.
Jan 16 - 8:32 PM

Jeff Overton went 3-for-5 prior to the holiday break with one finish inside the top 50.

After opening the season with two missed cuts and T54 (SFC) T51 (OHL), Overton's T6 at The RSM Classic was welcome news to his faithfuls. However, his prospects for back-to-back top 10s are bleak at best. The last time the 32-year-old accomplished that feat was in his Ryder Cup year of 2010, 143 starts ago. Through five events thus far in 2015-16, he ranks an uninspiring 87th in scoring average (71.040) but he has shot 64 twice already, something he did not accomplish at all last season in 92 rounds.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
