Robert Garrigus rolls into THE PLAYERS Championship at Ponte Vedra Beach, Fla. this week desperate to get on track after a rough month.

Garrigus posted a solid 18th-place showing at the Houston Open and he appeared to be ascending again, but the golf gods slapped him back down with three straight missed cuts at the RBC Heritage, Valero Texas Open and with his partner at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Now, it's back to the drawing board again. He can still hammer it off the tee, but that's about all he has going for him. Garrigus is 18th in Driving Distance (308.1 yards), but he is brutal in nearly every other category. Strokes gained tee-to-green is huge at TPC Sawgrass, and Garrigus is 101st on TOUR in the category and absolutely brutal with the putter, ranking 110th in Putts Per Round (29.09).
May 9 - 4:43 PM

World No. 222 Robert Garrigus tossed up a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Houston Open for a 54-hole total of 11-under 205, up 23 spots on the live leaderboard to T7, three back of clubhouse leader Ian Poulter.

This is the 40-year-old's ninth appearance with two prior top 25s, including a T20 last year, and one top 10 (T5/2007). He's got one top 25 so far this season among six cashes in 11 events, a T8 at the Farmers six starts ago. The Phoenix resident hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 0.896 strokes off-the-tee and 1.259 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-6 at hole 8 (3-putt from 33'4"), outpaced by six birdies at 3, 7, 11, 13, 15 and 18, three from between 15 and 28 feet, adding a hole-out 3 from a greenside bunker at 11 (from 32'0" away). The Idaho native posted 1.733 putts per GIR and 2.159 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.
Mar 31 - 5:05 PM

World No. 250 Robert Garrigus styled a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to finish up on 6-under 282, up 22 places on the live leaderboard to T9.

This was the 40-year-old's first top 25 of the season among four cashes in six starts. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his first since three straight top 10s in late-July early-August last year at the Barbasol, RBC Canadian Open and Barracuda. After kicking off in 69-70-73, the Idaho native began T31 on 4-under, four shy of the overnight top 10. He conjured four (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation, gaining 1.492 strokes around-the-green and 2.732 tee-to-green. The Phoenix resident squared two bogeys at holes 4 and 18, outpaced by four circles at 5, 9, 12 and 13, three from inside of 10 feet and a 21-footer from just off the green at 12. He registered 1.625 putts per GIR and 2.071 SG: Putting with 24 total putts. This was Garrigus' 13th Farmers, third top 25 and second top 10 (T6/2013).
Jan 28 - 5:51 PM

Robert Garrigus blitzed TPC Summerlin to the tune of a 6-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, climbing to 7-under 135 at the midpoint to stake an early claim of the clubhouse lead.

Battling crosswinds in the morning, the morning wave averaged more than 3/4 of a stroke over par, but Garrigus didn't seem to be bothered. He split nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation. The ball-striking was superb but his flat stick was even better. He walked off the course gaining 4.539 strokes putting on the round, splashing home a trio of putts from outside 10 feet. The lone blemish came at the par-4 18th where he found a greenside bunker and then splashed out into the water, leading to a double bogey. An eight-pack of birdies easily erased the big number. If this lead holds by day's end, it will be his fourth career 36-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR, first since the 2014 Valspar Championship.

World No. 188 Robert Garrigus is at the Silverado Resort and Spa for this week's Safeway Open.

The Idaho native is 5-for-7 at the Safeway with three top 25s and a best of T12 in 2014 (CordeValle GC). He missed the cut in 2015, the kickoff at Silverado, and posted T26 last year (73-68-72-66). The Phoenix resident finished 109th in the final FedExCup standings last season after an 109th-place finish the season prior. He went 14-for-26 with six top 25s and three top 10s, two of the latter were at opposite-field events, and the third was a season-best T5 at the RBC Canadian Open. The 39-year-old bowed out of the Playoffs with a MC at THE NORTHERN TRUST.

World No. 243 Robert Garrigus finished birdie-eagle en route to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open for a four-day tally of 18-under 270, dropping two places to a season-best T5, three shy of a two-man playoff.

The 39-year-old records a fifth top 25 of the season in 24 starts and second top 10, besting 10th last week at the opposite-field Barbasol. It's the first time he's recorded back-to-back top 10s since the 2012 BMW (T4) and TOUR Championship (T10) 58 months ago. The Idaho native records a second top 25 at the RBC in 11 tries, both top 10s and both top 5s after T2 in 2012 as 54-hole leader. After opening in 70-69-62, he began T3, two back of 54-hole leader Charley Hoffman. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he was sleepwalking on even-par thru 16 holes, trading three birdie-3s with three bogey-5s, but wrapped with a 10-footer for birdie-3 at 17 and a 24-footer for a walk-off eagle-3. The Arizona resident, whose lone TOUR title in 302 career events came 169 starts ago, found five (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.946 SG: Approach-the-Green but losing 1.339 around-the-green.

World No. 243 Robert Garrigus painted a season-low bogey-free 10-under-par 29-33=62 on Moving Day at the RBC Canadian Open to post 15-under 201, up 45 places to the top of the leaderboard, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and matching the course record at Glen Abbey GC with four others. UPDATE: With play completed, Garrigus is T3, two adrift of leader Charley Hoffman.

This is the 39-year-old's 11th Canadian Open with only one prior top 25 among just four cashes, posting a T2 in 2012 (Hamilton G&CC) where he was the 54-hole leader by one (64-66-64), closing in even-par 70. It's his 24th start of the season, checking in at 131st in the FedExCup standings and off his first top 10 of the season (10th) at last week's opposite-field Barbasol. After kicking off in 70-69, the Idaho native began on 5-under, one inside the cut line, and found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 3.633 strokes around-the-green and 6.078 tee-to-green. He carded two eagle-3s at Nos. 2 and 16, adding six birdies at 3, 4, 7, 8, 11 and 13, recording 1.538 putts per GIR and 1.621 SG: Putting, needing just 23 putts. If the lead holds, it'll be the Arizona resident's sixth in 302 career events, previously 0-for-5 converting.

World No. 262 Robert Garrigus was disqualified at the John Deere Classic following a third-round even-par 34-37=71.

As of press time, no reason has been cited for the DQ, his second in 300 career starts with the other occurring at the 2006 Honda Classic. After opening in 67-68 and the R3 71, the 39-year-old was on 7-under 206, which would've positioned him T44 heading to the final round. Garrigus entered the week 135th in the FedExCup standings so he forfeited some much-needed FEC points. If a reason emerges for the DQ, we'll update this post.

World No. 247 Robert Garrigus preps for his ninth Travelers Championship in Cromwell, CT., and checks in at 133rd in the FedExCup standings.

The 39-year-old is batting.500 at the par-70 TPC River Highlands, making and missing four cuts. He has two top 20 finishes, highlighted by T5 last year (67-67-68-67), where he was T5 thru 36 holes. The Scottsdale Community College alum is just 8-for-18 on the season, posting three top 25s with a best of T17 at the CareerBuilder 22 weeks ago. He ranks 118th on TOUR in scoring average (71.362) and a respectable 40th in birdie average (3.84). The Idaho native arrives off six consecutive missed cuts and seven in his last eight, interrupted only by a T20 at the Houston Open seven starts ago.

World No. 210 Robert Garrigus contests his eighth Zurich Classic of New Orleans, this time with teammate and World No. 44 William McGirt, the duo a pre-tourney 50/1 outright.

Garrigus is 3-for-7 in NOLA with one top 50, a T5 in 2014. He was a mid-tourney WD in 2015 and a T72/MDF last year (69-70-75). The Scottsdale Community College alum checks in 103rd in FedExCup points with three top 25s among eight cashes in 14 starts. His season best is T17 at the CareerBuilder back in January and has missed three of his last four cuts, sandwiching in a T20 at the Houston Open. McGirt is slightly off his career-season pace last year where he won his lone TOUR title (P1, Memorial), finished T2 at the Sanderson Farms and qualified for his first TOUR Championship. He's 47th in FEC points and 9-for-13 on the season with three top 10s, checking in off a season-best T3 at the Heritage. The Wofford College alum is 1-for-4 in NOLA, cashing a T30 in 2012.

Taking on Spyglass Hill Golf Course, Robert Garrigus twirled a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during his two-day navigation of round one of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am.

Garrigus got faced with Spyglass Hill for round one, typically the most difficult test in the rota. Thanks to some windy and misty conditions, he may actually be in the driver's seat in terms of the correct weather draw this week. In his opening round he split just six fairways but still managed 14 greens in regulation. From there knocked in five birdies to offset a pair of bogeys. Garrigus will have a short rest before heading out to Pebble Beach Golf Links for his second round. In 10 previously appearances, Garrigus has three top 30s but nothing better than a T20 (2012).

Robert Garrigus torched TPC Scottsdale with a 5-under-par 32-34=66 during round one of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, sharing an early piece of the clubhouse lead.

The Scottsdale Community College alum is making his eighth appearance at this event. This matches his previous low for round one, posting rounds of 66 in 2007 as well as 2013. He went on to finish T11 in both of those editions. Today, it was all about the flat stick as he splashed home three birdies from the 22-to-27 foot range. He also trickled home a trio of putts from 6-to-9 feet. Garrigus walked off the course gaining 2.065 strokes putting. It's easy to see the big hitter feels very comfortable here in Scottsdale, Arizona.

Playing La Quinta Country Club, Robert Garrigus styled a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 13-under 203, up 13 spots to T8, four adrift of 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin, who shot 59.

The World No. 229 opened his ninth appearance in 68-69 to begin the third round on 7-under (T21). He camouflaged a lone bogey-4 at 12 with seven birdies, including four straight on Nos. 8-11. The 39-year-old, runner-up here in 2012, found just seven (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR. His one TOUR victory in 282 career starts came at the now-defunct Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic in 2010.

World No. 229 Robert Garrigus is in final preparations for this week's 3-course CareerBuilder Challenge and begins on the Nicklaus Tournament Course.

The 39-year-old has one top 10 in eight prior visits, a T2 in 2012. That was the first of four runner-up finishes that year, ending the season with a T2 at the now-defunct Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, his most recent runner-up in 282 career events. Since then, the Phoenix resident has five top 10s in 78 starts and no podiums. He's begun this season respectably, going 3-for-4 with each cash between 26th- and 35th-place, most recently a T33 nine weeks ago at the RSM (67-68-70-68).
