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). Jan 18 - 4:21 PM

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Robert Garrigus has withdrawn from this week's Barclays, he was 3-over through 11 holes today, and 9-over on the week at the time of WD, citing an elbow injury as the culprit.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

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.

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.

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.
