Robert Garrigus carved out a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to wrap his 10th appearance on 8-under 276, good for his second top 10 of the season in his 14th start.
The 38-year-old was T8 after 36 holes, T8 after 54 holes, and ended in a two-way T8 after a three-birdie two-bogey finale. He squared the first and the ninth but erased them with birdies on Nos. 7, 11 and 17. The Idaho native managed just five (of 14) fairways but hit 12 greens in regulation and posted 1.750 putts per GIR. For the week, he totaled 18 birdies against eight bogeys and one double. Both of his top 10s this season have come in his last three starts. Jun 26 - 6:16 PM

Robert Garrigus stalled out to a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the three-quarter pole on 7-under 206, eight in arrears to 54-hole leader Billy Hurley III.

The 38-year-old began the third round in a three-way T8 on 6-under, five back of overnight co-leaders Hurley III and Jon Rahm. He mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting negative numbers across the board, with one notable exception, a 1.807 in SG: Putting. The Idaho native entered the week ranked 194th on TOUR in SGP, and thru 54 holes, is No. 2 with a cumulative 6.487. He was 3-under on his lap thru 14 holes, erasing bogey at the second with birdies on Nos. 5, 6, 11 and 13, but bogeyed 15 and 18 coming to the house, missing par-savers from 5'5" and 6'2", respectively. Three of his birdies traveled between 10 and 18 feet, but his longest of the day dropped from 18'3" for par at the third. Garrigus has connected three straight red numbers for the first time in five months.

Robert Garrigus survived a double bogey to sign for a 2-under-par 36-33=69 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National to grab a very early stake on the clubhouse lead at 6-under 136.

Garrigus arrived as a course horse and he's digging into that course history bank to get into contention yet again. On the day, he landed 13 greens in regulation, but gained 2.927 strokes approaching-the-green, so his iron play was better than raw GIR numbers would indicate. On the greens, he splashed home five putts from outside six feet, including a 20'1" birdie blast on the par-4 11th hole. Through two rounds, he currently ranks ninth in the field in regards to strokes gained putting.

Robert Garrigus keeps his streak alive when he contests this week's Quicken Loans National in Bethesda, Maryland, and checks in at 150th in the FedExCup standings.

The 38-year-old has played in all nine editions across three venues and has cashed eight times. His one missed cut came last year in Virginia. In the three most recent at Congressional (2012-14), Garrigus posted T4-T64-T11, and also went for T3 at the 2011 U.S. Open (Congressional), his career-best finish in a major. The Tour grad is 8-for-13 on the season with one top 25, which doubles as a top 10. His T4 two starts ago at the Byron Nelson was his first top 10 in 46 events, dating back to a T5 at the 2014 Zurich Classic. The Phoenix transplant chased with an up-and-down T50 at the St. Jude on rounds of 70-69-76-67.

Robert Garrigus orchestrated a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to wrap his 11th appearance on 13-under 267, up nine to T4 with play still in progress.

The 38-year-old hasn't had a top 10 on TOUR since T5 at the 2014 Zurich Classic, 46 events ago. He entered the week off a season-best T28 (on 11 starts) at the Wells Fargo with a previous best at the Nelson (and only top 10) of T9 in 2012. For the week, Garrigus tallied 22 birdies, currently T2 in that stat, against nine bogeys, and ranks second in SGTTG with a cumulative 11.087, including 4.947 in R4. He was No. 1 in proximity to hole at 22'5", while the field average was 34'3".

Robert Garrigus fired up the scoring machine in round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson, carding a 5-under-par 33-32=65 to sit two shots off the early pace set by Sergio Garcia.

Garrigus started the day with a bogey at the par-4 first hole, it came as a result of a missed 4'2" par-saving attempt. He bounced back in a big way, rattling off a three-hole birdie train, totaling 20 feet of putts made over the three-hole stretch. His ball-striking was astute all day, gaining 5.948 strokes tee-to-green but giving 1.487 strokes back with the flat stick. Garrigus entered the week ranked just 175th in the FedExCup standings, but he's enjoying a return to a venue that's yielded five top 30s for him.
May 19 - 6:18 PM

Robert Garrigus gears up for a meeting with TPC Four Seasons at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson.

Playing out of the 30th slot in the Tour graduate reshuffle, starts have been tough to come by. He enters with a 6-for-11 record but nothing better than a T28. Garrigus finished inside the top 100 in the FedExCup standings in four straight seasons before last year's 174th finish. His course history is much more encouraging, as he sports five top 30s here in his last seven visits here. Gamers can take a chance on Garrigus this week, but his lack of form still makes him a risky option.

Robert Garrigus finds his way back to this week's CareerBuilder Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation for an eighth appearance.

The bomber slid off the rails last season with a disappointing 11-for-25 record. He took care of business at the Tour Championship but is not making the most of his renewed PGA TOUR status. Through four starts, he's tallied just one finish better than T70. That finish was a T33 at last week's Sony Open in Hawaii. He will feel right at home on this year's new tracks as he finished inside the top 10 at Q-School in 2006 and then again in 2008. Garrigus also sports four top 25s including a runner-up finish at this week's CBC, but his form makes him a risky selection for gamers.

Robert Garrigus has nowhere to go but up after a disappointing 2014-15 season.

The bomber missed out on the FedExCup Playoffs for just the second time since its in inception in 2007. The early returns during the fall show no signs of a rebound, as he's yet to post anything better than a T70 after three starts. Garrigus has a long history with injuries, evidenced by the 11 mid-tournament WDs on his resume. Gamers should play it safe and avoid Garrigus until he gives us a sign of revival.

Robert Garrigus crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-35=67 for his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Garrigus just missed cracking the first two fields of 2015-16 on merit, so the SFC marks his season debut. He was itching to score, too, circling birdies on Nos. 10 and 11 where he began the round. All told, he went 5-for-15 in scoring opportunities and posted up five strokes back of clubhouse leader Roberto Castro. Garrigus will turn 38 years of age on Wednesday the 11th.

Robert Garrigus returns to the Sanderson Farms Championship for the first time since a missed cut in 2010.

Garrigus missed four of his last five cuts on TOUR last season with his only cash a disappointing T15 at the opposite-field Barracuda Championship where he was solo third thru 54 holes. In total, he made just 11 cuts on 25 starts, adding only one other top-25 finish and eventually finishing a career-worst 174th in the FedExCup standings. It broke a streak of six consecutive seasons where he had qualified for the Playoffs. The 37-year-old, who turns 38 on Nov. 11, went the Tour Finals' route for the first time and posted CUT-CUT-T9-T12, finishing 38th on that tour's priority rankings.

Robert Garrigus preps for his Tour Championship debut and enters the week 33rd on the Finals money list among those currently ineligible.

This is Garrigus' first foray in the Tour Finals posting CUT-CUT-T9 in the first three events. He was T2 after 54 holes at last week's Nationwide Children's Championship (two adrift), before back-pedaling to 4-over 75 in the final round, including a birdie-less 6-over 41 on the back nine. The 37-year-old completed his PGA TOUR season ranked 174th in the final FedExCup standings, his worst showing in 10 years on TOUR. He made just 11 cuts on 25 starts with a dismal two top-25 finishes.

Robert Garrigus readies for his Hotel Fitness Championship debut after a disappointing 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

The big hitter missed out on The Barclays this year for the first time since 2008, finishing 174th in the FedExCup race. Garrigus wasn't really himself this season as he posted just two top 25s in 25 starts. In comparison, the bomber had collected 35 over the four seasons, prior. With a T15 on his resume as recent as the Barracuda Championship in August, perhaps Garrigus will find a way to rise to the occasion over the next four weeks.

Robert Garrigus ponied up 16 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship to reach the three-quarter mark at 37 points, four points back of 54-hole leader J.J. Henry.

With three weeks (four events) remaining before the FedExCup Playoffs begin, Garrigus had missed three consecutive cuts heading into the tournament and at 174th in the FedExCup standings, was in desperate need for a high finish. He began the day in a seven-way tie for seventh with 21 points, five points back. The 37-year-old lost three points right away squaring double at the par-4 first. He struck back with consecutive birdies at Nos. 2-4 and at 8-10 to reach nine points on the day. Garrigus played his last eight in seven points for the good, offsetting bogey at the 12th with birdies at Nos. 13, 15, 17 and 18. He'll peg it on Sunday in the penultimate pairing with Jonas Blixt and will be looking for his second TOUR victory (2010, Children's Miracle Network Classic) in 256 career starts.

Robert Garrigus gathered another nine points in today's second round of the Barracuda Championship to touch 21 at the halfway point.

Garrigus was on a roll today with six birdies on his first 13 holes. The set featured conversions from 20 feet and 12'4" at Nos. 6 and 7, respectively. However, he finished with four pars and a walk-off double bogey at the par-5 18th. The good news is that he's ended his schneid and sits in striking distance entering the weekend just five points back of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
