J.B. Holmes handled his business at Spyglass Hill Golf Club, turning in a 6-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.
Opening his week on what is generally the hardest track of the three on-tap this week, Holmes signed for the co-low-round of the day at Spyglass Hill. The other 6-under coming from first-timer, Justin Rose. As expected, Holmes chose power over accuracy as he walked off the course ranked T17 in driving distance but just T121 in accuracy off the tee. The bomber has four top 20s in nine tries at this event and its shaping up to be another high finish through 18 holes. Feb 11 - 5:41 PM

Past champ J.B. Holmes tossed up a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open for a 72-hole aggregate of 9-under 275, up 11 places on the live leaderboard to T6.

The 2008 WMPO playoff winner opened in a disappointing one-birdie 2-over 73, but closed like a champion with 67-68-67. He played his last 54 holes squaring just two bogeys (one double), but overshadowing them with 15 birdies, five in the finale. At last check, the 33-year-old, who entered the week off a T6 at last week's Farmers, is No. 1 in the field in driving distance (329.0 yards) and first in bogeys with five. Holmes is scheduled to make his 10th appearance at next week's AT&T Pebble Beach.

J.B. Holmes signed for a 4-over-par 38-38=76 in the two-day final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to wrap his 11th appearance at 2-under 286, up three spots on the live leaderboard into a two-way tie for sixth.

Holmes, a playoff loser here last year, resumed on Monday with five holes to complete and posted three pars before a bogey-bogey finish. He began his final round (on Sunday) at 6-under (T9) after opening in 70-68-72. The 33-year-old circled three in the finale against five bogeys after five (of 14) fairways and seven greens in regulation. He races to this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open where he's a two-time winner (2008, 2006) in 10 appearances.

J.B. Holmes got the birdie machine working in round two, signing for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 at the Farmers Insurance Open to reach 6-under 138.

It appears the bomber just needed some more room off the tee. The nearly 7,700 yard layout of today's Torrey Pines South was more his style after a 2-under 70 on the shorter North Course, yesterday. Speaking of length, Holmes currently leads the field in driving distance, averaging 317.6 yards through two rounds. It wasn't all drive for show today, as he rolled in a pair of birdie bombs from outside 20 feet. The first came at the par-4 second and then again at the par-3 eighth. Holmes is just three strokes off the co-leaders and in great position to make a run over the weekend.

J.B. Holmes rebounded with a 5-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions for a three-day total of 8-under 211, up four places on the live leaderboard.

The 33-year-old was T3 after 18 holes with an opening 67, but cratered to a 3-over 76 on day two, swallowing a bogey and two doubles against just two birdies. Today's loop promised to be more of the same beginning with back-to-back bogeys after missing each green, but he played his last 16 holes in bogey-free 7-under. While Holmes' fairways and greens numbers in R3 were identical to Friday, with 10 (of 15) and 14 GIR, respectively, he flipped a -6.281 in strokes gained: total into a 1.715 mark at the time he signed his card. Six of his conversions traveled less than 11 feet prior to dropping a 16-footer for birdie-4 on the finishing hole.
Jan 9 - 6:13 PM

J.B. Holmes handled his business with a 6-under-par 34-33=67 during the opening round of this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The bomber coasted out to 3-under through 11 holes before dropping a shot at the par-4 12th thanks to a three-jack from inside seven feet. He bounced back in a big way with four straight birdies, including a 19'4" birdie bomb on the par-4 13th hole. We shouldn't be so quick to crown Holmes as he entered the week with five of his 12 career Hyundai rounds going for par or worse which can prove devastating when the rest of the field is going low.
Jan 7 - 10:46 PM

J.B. Holmes heads back to Hawaii for his fourth start at this week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

It took Holmes six years to make it back following his second appearance (2009). He's much more efficiency this time around, winning for a second consecutive season. The bomber's latest victory took place at the 2015 Shell Houston Open and earned him a spot in this week's field. Kapalua's Plantation Course is one of the easiest courses on TOUR so it's concerning to see five of Holmes' 12 rounds here going for par or worse.
Jan 5 - 7:24 PM

J.B. Holmes and Bubba Watson cruised to a 3-and-2 victory over Hideki Matsuyama and Adam Scott in Thursday foursomes at the Presidents Cup.

The short story here is that Holmes more than filled Jim Furyk's shoes in the opening session at Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea. All five of the points won by the bombers, who went out in the first match of the day, were birdies converted by Holmes. The quintet included rolls of 13'12" and 10'6" at the second and fifth holes, respectively. His connection from 24'9" for a 3 at the par-4 16th concluded the match. The International tandem won only two holes, but they were behind after Holmes' first birdie. When they shook hands, the U.S. led 2-0 in the competition.

J.B. Holmes turns his attention toward Jack Nicklaus Golf Club Korea ahead of his debut at this week's Presidents Cup.

The power of intimidation cannot go unnoticed when it comes to match play and team formats. The bomber can certainly lay the pressure on heavy as he bombs it miles down the fairway. His career resume backs it up as he owns a 6-4-0 record in singles and 1-0-1 in Ryder Cup fourball. Playing as a late fill-in for the injured Jim Furyk, Holmes should hold his own this week in Incheon, Korea.

J.B. Holmes has been announced as Jim Furyk's replacement at next week's Presidents Cup.

Furyk had until the evening on Oct. 7 to decide if he could go, but he elected to cut his losses. This gave captain Jay Haas the luxury of announcing an official replacement early and without having to worry about Furyk's status. "Jim did everything he could to be ready, and I'm sad that he won't be able to play," said captain Jay Haas, who plucked Holmes off the bench. The bomber will be a debutant in the biennial competition. He placed 12th in automatic qualifying and was first on the outside looking when when Bill Haas (11th) went off the board as a captain's pick. "J.B. is excited for the opportunity and will be ready to play," Jay Haas said. "He’s had two top 10s to end the FedExCup Playoffs, so he’s playing well and he’ll be a good fit. We’re all looking forward to a great week." Meanwhile, Brooks Koepka remains the primary snub for the Americans, who will be going for their eighth consecutive victory and 10th in 11 editions.

J.B. Holmes carved out a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to complete his debut at 3-under 277, good for T8 and 14th in the final FedExCup standings.

Holmes went for second of the nine first-timers at East Lake (Danny Lee/T2). After opening in 68-72-68, he began his final frame in solo seventh at 2-under, six in arrears of would-be-champ Jordan Spieth. His circled three on the card over his first half to outpace a dropped shot at the par-3 second to turn 2-under. Following the break, he overshadowed birdie at the par-3 11th with bogeys at 10 and 13 to complete his scoring. The 33-year-old wraps his 10th season on TOUR with a career best $4,037,430 in earnings, easily surpassing his previous best of $2,386,248 in 2010. On his season of 25 starts, he recorded his fourth career victory and recorded six other top-10 finishes. With Jim Furyk questionable for the Presidents Cup, he's definitely a possible replacement for the American squad and if so, would be making his second career appearance (2008).

J.B. Holmes successfully battled the elements in the third round of the TOUR Championship to card a 2-under-par 35-33=68 and move to solo seventh with play still in progress.

Holmes is one of nine first-timers in the elite field of 28 and he's making the most of his opportunity at 2-under 208 thru 54 holes. After opening in 68-72, he began Moving Day at even-par (T9) and nine adrift. On his round, he landed seven (of 14) fairways, better than the four he found yesterday. Particularly important today however, with lift, clean and place in effect. The 33-year-old hit 12 greens in regulation, converting on three, but also holed his greenside-bunker shot at the fourth for the birdie-3. His dropped shots came at the par-4 fifth and 16th, respectively, after failing to get up-and-down. With just one par breaker thru his first 11 holes, Holmes circled three over a four-hole stretch at Nos. 12, 14 (from 17'2") and 15, salvaging just the seventh sub-par round of the day thus far.

J.B. Holmes followed his opening 68 at the TOUR Championship with a 2-over-par 34-38=72 in today's second round.

He found only four (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation today. The imprecision led to four bogey-5s against a pair of birdies on his outward nine. At even -par 140, Holmes is six swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He's played holes 13-18 in birdie-free 6-over thus far.

J.B. Holmes toured East Lake Golf Club in 2-under-par 31-37=68 in today's opening round of the TOUR Championship.

Evident in his nine-hole scores, Holmes was a rabbit early, but he bogeyed three of the last six holes before coming to rest three strokes off the clubhouse lead. Overall, he hit 12 greens and connected for five birdies. The set featured rolls of 10'1" at the par-4 eighth hole and 19'5" at the par-4 10th. Despite four PGA TOUR wins since joining the circuit in 2006, he hadn't qualified for the season finale until this year. Previously, the 33-year-old had stalled out at the BMW Championship five times.

J.B. Holmes debuts at the TOUR Championship 17th in the FedExCup standings.

Holmes led the field last week in strokes gained: putting and putts per GIR en route to a T4 at the BMW. It was his first top-10 finish in 20 career starts in the Playoffs and first stroke-play top 10 since winning the Shell Houston Open the first week of April, a span of 13 events. He was not a factor in the first two legs of the postseason posting T58 at The Barclays and T44 at the Deutsche Bank. The 33-year-old is one of eight first-timers this week at the Playoffs finale where two players, Bill Haas (2011) and Henrik Stenson (2013), have won the TOUR Championship in their first appearance. Holmes' other season highlights were solo second at the no-cut WGC-Cadillac Championship in March and P2 at the Farmers in February.
