J.B. Holmes is lurking near the top of the Shell Houston Open leaderboard following a third-round 1-under-par 37-34=71.

Holmes erased a bogey at the par-5 eighth with birdies at 12, 14 and 15 before suffering a final blemish in the form of a bogey at the par-4 17th. This sets up a potentially important final round for the bomber, as he has 11 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $307,649 or 180 FedExCup points. He was tied for eighth at the time of his posting.
Apr 5 - 2:49 PM

J.B. Holmes submitted a 6-under-par 34-32=66 for his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, good for a piece of the clubhouse lead.

Holmes went 5-for-12 in par-breaker chances today, including conversions from 22'4", 16'8" and 12'10" at the 11th, fifth and eighth holes, respectively, but he also recorded consecutive hole-outs from off the green to begin his second nine on the front side of the Golf Club of Houston. Both of his respective attempts from 10 yards and seven yards at Nos. 1 and 2 disappeared for birdies. Holmes' lone gaffe occurred at the par-3 seventh where he found a greenside bunker off the tee and failed to knock in a par try from just inside five feet.
Apr 3 - 2:51 PM

J.B. Holmes tied for 64th place at the Valero Texas Open to earn $13,020.00 and 6.00 FedExCup points.

Holmes made the cut on the number at 3-over 72-75=147, and then shot 4-over 72-76=148 on the weekend. It's his seventh payday in eight starts this season, but five has resulted in a finish outside the top 50. He'll make the trip to the Shell Houston Open with 11 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $307,649 or 180 FedExCup points and retain status.
Mar 30 - 6:45 PM

At 6-under-par 68-69-72-73=282, J.B. Holmes shared 10th place at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Despite failing to break par after the cut, Holmes ended his drought without a top 10 that extended nearly two years. His last occurred at the Shell Houston Open on April 1, 2012. He led the field at Bay Hill in distance off the tee (311.6 yards) and ranked a stout fourth in strokes gained-putting (1.536). The strong week yielded $148,800.00 and 67.5 FedExCup points. As a result, he'll head to the Valero Texas Open with 12 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $320,669 or 186 FedExCup points and retain status.
Mar 23 - 6:39 PM

J.B. Holmes turned in an even-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and is tied for eighth at 7-under 209.

There are many ways to post a 36-36=72, and Holmes chose the wild way. His round featured an eagle, a double bogey, three birdies and three bogeys, so it was interesting to say the least. This is his first significant taste of contention after coming back from an injury that has him playing out of the Major Medical category, so some bumps in the road are to be expected. A nice round on Sunday should put a palpable dent in his $469,469 or 253.5 FedExCup deficit.
Mar 22 - 6:00 PM

J.B. Holmes chased his opening 68 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 3-under-par 36-33=69 to post 7-under 137, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Holmes went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee today and took advantage of the perfect greens. While he found only 11 of them in regulation, he limited the damage to a lone double bogey at the par-4 11th where he rinsed his approach. Elsewhere, he picked off five birdies, all inside eight feet. His longest conversion came in the form of a par save from 11'11" at the par-5 sixth where he didn't find the putting surface until his fourth stroke.
Mar 21 - 12:10 PM

J.B. Holmes carded a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

He split only seven (of 14) fairways and hit nine greens, but Holmes rallied for six birdies to offset just two bogeys. Three of his par breakers disappeared from outside 11 feet, the longest measuring 22'5" at the par-4 15th hole. He also curled in a par save from 10'2" at 5. He played the quartet of par 5s in 2-under with three birdies and a bogey, the 6 occurring at the (in)famous sixth where he sailed his drive out of bounds long. Holmes signed his card with a strokes gained-putting split north of 3.450 and sitting six strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Mar 20 - 5:31 PM

J.B. Holmes has been added to the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Holmes received a sponsor exemption to compete this week. He's currently 157th in the FedExCup standings after a T54 at the Valspar. He's 7-for-7 at Bay Hill but hasn't cracked a top 20.
Mar 17 - 10:56 AM

J.B. Holmes settled for a share of 54th place at the Valspar Championship.

He failed to break par in any round en route to 5-over-par 71-74-71-73=289. Holmes earned $13,053.00 and 15.5 FedExCup points, and he's 5-for-6 on the second, but he's finished outside the top 50 in his last five starts. He'll enter a week off with 13 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $469,469 or 253.5 FedExCup points and retain status.
Mar 16 - 6:28 PM

J.B. Holmes blew up for a 6-over-par 41-35=76 in his second round of The Honda Classic to post 6-over 146, six strokes too many to play the weekend.

After trading five birdies with three bogeys and a double on Thursday, he painted an even more color card today. Starting on 10, Holmes would double bogey No. 11 after rinsing his approach into the par 4. Then, in an effort to outmuscle the par-4 13th, he knocked two tee balls out of bounds before what was his fifth shot came to rest 356 yards from the tee. Alas, he took an snowman on that par 4. Four birdies ensued, but so did two bogeys and another double, this time at the par-3 fifth where his tee ball found water. It's his first missed cut in five PGA TOUR starts since returning to competition following an ankle injury. Holmes now has 13 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $482,522 or 269 FedExCup points and retain status.
Feb 28 - 7:14 PM

After opening with a 4-under-par 67 at the Northern Trust Open J.B. Holmes faded to finish in a tie for 52nd place with successive rounds of 71, 75 and 71.

He posted even-par 284, good for $15,467.43 and 16 FedExCup points. It's his fourth payday in as many starts this season but third straight result outside the top 50. He now has 14 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $482,522 or 269 FedExCup points and retain status.
Feb 16 - 7:20 PM

J.B. Holmes returned to Riviera Country Club this morning to complete a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

He "led" the 15 stranded at darkness on Thursday, and then parred the par-4 18th hole this morning to finish as the last of 11 one stroke off Dustin Johnson's overnight lead. Holmes' affinity for Riviera dates back to 2008 when he tied for seventh place. It was the first of five straight top 15s (four of which were top 10s) before he missed last year's cut. In his lid-lifter this week, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. While he squared two bogeys, including a three-putt from just 16'5" at the par-3 16th, he wrangled six birdies to overcome. The set included a 17-footer at the famous par-3 sixth and a chip-in from 15 yards away at 13.
Feb 14 - 11:03 AM

J.B. Holmes settled for a 6-over-par 41-37=78 in his final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am to finish in a three-way tie for 61st place.

He landed only seven greens in regulation en route to six bogeys and a double. It caused him to tumble 30 spots on the leaderboard and into last place among the 63 golfers that completed 72 holes. No one carded a higher round on Sunday. Holmes earned $14,256.00 and 9.00 FedExCup points to take a nibble out of the terms of his Major Medical Extension. He'll travel to the Northern Trust Open with 16 starts remaining on the MME to bank $497,989 or 285 FedExCup points and retain status.
Feb 9 - 8:43 PM

J.B. Holmes shared 58th place at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Holmes survived the cut at 1-under-par 73-68 thanks to birdies on his 35th and 36th holes. He went on to score 1-over 70-73=143 on the weekend to post even-par 284. It's a forgettable finish, but the $13,764.00 and 12.00 FedExCup points he pockets chips away at his Major Medical Extension. He'll head to Pebble Beach with 17 starts on the MME to earn $512,245 or 294 FedExCup points and retain status.
