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).

Robert Garrigus takes his talents to Las Vegas, Nevada, for his 10th appearance at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The big hitter found his form over the summer, arriving with top 30s in seven of his last nine starts. The highlights include a T5 at the Travelers Championship, a T11 at the Barbasol Championship, and a T8 at the Quicken Loans National. Adding more fuel to the fire, he brings plenty of course history with him this week, as well. Since 2008 when TPC Summerlin become the single host of the Shriners, Garrigus is 6-for-7 with a trio of top 30s. That includes seven round of 5-under 66 or better. The product of Scottsdale Community College certainly brings a lot of upside to gamers this week, without adding a lot of risk.

Robert Garrigus has withdrawn from this week's Barclays, he was 3-over through 11 holes today, and 9-over on the week at the time of WD, citing an elbow injury as the culprit.

Garrigus opened his week with a birdie-free, 6-over-par 39-38=77 to fall behind right form the start. He landed just six greens in that opening navigation of Bethpage Black and his flat stick was equally unproductive, losing 2.466 strokes putting in round one. It was more of the same today as he traded four bogeys with just one birdie before calling it quits. On the week he missed four putts from 6'4" or shorter. Initially grouped with Jonas Blixt and Brett Stegmaier, Blixt was left to play the final seven holes alone as Stegmaier withdrew during round one with a left-wrist injury. Entering the week 102nd in the FedExCup standings, this puts an end to Garrigus' 2015-16 campaign.

Robert Garrigus signed for a 3-under-par 35-32=67 after the final round of the Travelers Championship to reach 11-under 269, up three places to T5 with play winding down.

The 38-year-old began the final frame on 8-under (T8) after opening his eighth appearance in twin 67s and 68, seven back of 54-hole leader Daniel Berger. Playing out of the fifth-to-last twosome, he circled three birdies against two bogeys, adding an eagle-3 at the 13th from 39'9". The Idaho native posted a 1.769 putts per GIR on 13 greens in regulation, buoyed by a 50-footer for birdie-2 at the fifth. For the week, he outpaced 10 bogeys with one eagle and 19 birdies en route to his third top 10 of the season in 18 starts. His previous best at the Travelers was T19 in 2009.

Robert Garrigus stalled out to a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the Travelers Championship to post 8-under 202, down three into a three-way T8.

The 38-year-old bobbed and weaved to six birdies against four bogeys on 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. He was mediocre across all of the strokes gained categories, ending with a 0.649 in SG: Total. The Scottsdale Community College alum birdied Nos. 1, 7, 9, 11, 13 and 14, all from inside of 12 feet, and bogeyed holes 4, and 6 (3-putt from 41'5"), and back-to-backs on 15 and 16 that completed his scoring.

Robert Garrigus pieced together a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the Travelers Championship, reaching 6-under 134 through two days.

The bomber continues to split fairways, striping 13 (of 14) today to reach 23 on the week (currently T12 in the field). The accuracy off the tee helped set up 15 greens in regulation today. From there, his putter was up-and-down. He missed five putts from 9-to-11 feet but made up for those with three splashes from outside 12 feet. Garrigus entered the week ranked 193rd in driving accuracy, so it will be very interesting to see how his accuracy holds up over the weekend. Currently T2 on the live leaderboard, he's in great position to post his career-best finish at the Travelers (previously T19 in 2009).

Robert Garrigus pieced together a 3-under-par 35-32=67 during the opening round of this week's Travelers Championship, currently three off the early leaders Andrew Loupe, Vaughn Taylor, and Jerry Kelly.

The 38-year-old kept the ball in front of him all day, missing just four (of 14) fairways on his way toward 13 greens in regulation. His putter never really caught fire, but it was steady enough to circle five birdies and save par from outside seven feet (twice). Garrigus is making his eighth appearance at TPC River Highlands, with just one top 35 on his resume (T19, 2009). Wedge play is not a strength of his game and his distance goes a little wasted at a short track like this, so it will be interesting to see how the bomber fares as the week progresses.
