Brad Fritsch has violated the terms of the PGA TOUR Anti-Doping Policy and will be suspended for three months.
Fritsch self-reported the violation after discovering an ingredient in a supplement he was taking was on the prohibited list. The supplement was part of a weight-loss program. As a Tour graduate, the Canadian went 10-for-18 last season to finish 204th in the FedExCup standings. With no PGA TOUR status at the moment, this won't have a big impact on season-long gamers. Fritsch will be eligible to return on February 28, 2018, but starts will be extremely limited upon his return. He made just four PGA TOUR starts across the 2014-15 and 2015-16 seasons. For more details, read the full story that Fritsch posted on his Facebook Page. Jan 8 - 5:08 PM

Canadian and World No. 537 Brad Fritsch is at Glen Abbey Golf Club for his 10th RBC Canadian Open and arrives at 201st in the FedExCup standings.

This is the 39th event of the season and the Tour grad is making just his 16th start with a season best of T29 at the Sanderson Farms back in October. He's made eight cuts and missed seven, including three straight and five of his last six, interrupted by a T43 at the Travelers. The North Carolina resident is just 3-for-9 in his national open with one top-70 finish, a back-door T9 in 2014. He's missed the last two cuts, including last year by five (77-74).

Brad Fritsch continued his dominance of Torrey Pines with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the Farmers Insurance Open.

The Canadian has just four top 10s to his credit in 64 PGA TOUR starts, but two of them have come at this venue. He's finished every round at the Farmers at T36 or better, and that trend will continue today as he currently finds himself T3 on the live leaderboard. Fritsch did most of his damage on the poa annua greens of Torrey Pines South, splashing home six putts from outside six feet, including a 32'3" birdie bomb at the par-4 seventh. It wasn't all putting, though, as he nearly holed out his 216-yard tee shot at the par-3 11th, settling for a tap-in birdie from six inches. The Canuck clearly has an eye for this layout so there is no reason to expect a big drop off as the week progresses.

World No. 408 Brad Fritsch is slotted 28th on the Tour grad reshuffle.

The 39-year-old is playing his third season on TOUR, first since 2014, and all three as a WCT grad. He 2-for-3 to begin 2016-17 with a best of T29 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms Championship, and went T74/MDF in his last start at The RSM Classic (72-64-74). The Canadian won his first pro title at the 2016 Servientrega Championship (playoff) and followed with a T2 at the Mexico Championship, where he was the 54-hole leader, his two top 10s last season on the junior circuit in 16 events. While he didn't improve his priority ranking in the WCT Finals, missing all three cuts, his 14th-place finish in regular-season money earned him the promotion.

Brad Fritsch returns to the PGA TOUR via a 14th-place finish on the Tour's regular-season money list and is playing his third Safeway Open.

The Canuck is making his third foray onto the main stage (2013, 2014) and all as a WCT grad. He won his first pro title at the 2016 Servientrega Championship (playoff) in his 136th career start on the lower circuit and chased with a T2 at the Mexico Championship, but coughed up the 54-hole lead with a closing 1-over 73. Those were the 38-year-old's two top 10s in 16 starts and didn't better his priority ranking after missing all three cuts in the WCT Finals. The North Carolina resident made just one start last season on the PGA TOUR, missing the cut at the Canadian Open as a sponsor exemption. He's yet to make the weekend at the Safeway with a MC in 2015 but did make the cut in 2014, withdrawing due to injury (back).

Former PGA TOUR member and Canada native Brad Fritsch makes final preparations for his ninth playing of the RBC Canadian Open and cracks the field at Glen Abbey GC via a sponsor exemption. UPDATE: Fritsch posted rounds of 77-74 and at 7-over 151, will not be around for the weekend.

The Canuck makes his home in North Carolina and played two full seasons on TOUR in 2013 and 2014. He missed the FedExCup Playoffs both times, finishing 129th and 151st in the standings, respectively. The 38-year-old's last start on the main circuit was here last year, missing the cut by four after rounds of 75-71. He also played the 2008 and 2013 editions at Glen Abbey, missing the cut in the former and withdrawing after making the cut in the latter with a bad back -- which he's battled for several years. Fritsch has played the Tour the last two seasons and has made nine starts in 2016. He has two top 10s, winning his maiden title in a playoff at the Servientrega Championship and finishing T2 in his next start at the Mexico Championship. The Campbell University alum arrives off a run of CUT-WD-62-CUT.

Brad Fritsch carded a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the El Bosque Mexico Championship to reach 16-under 200 through 54 holes.

He is now two-strokes clear of his 36-hole co-leader, Wesley Bryan. The Canuck circled four birdies and squared one bogey on what proved to be a rather calm lap around El Bosque CC. It should be noted that each of his birdies fell on the four par 5s. He'll try and close out his second win in as many Tour starts during Sunday's finale.

Brad Fritsch crafted a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the second round of the El Bosque Mexico Championship and shares the 36-hole lead with Wesley Bryan at 13-under 131.

Fritsch started hot at El Bosque CC, circling birdies on three of his first five holes. He added an eagle on the par-5 eighth before tacking on two more birdies on the back nine. He won the Servientrega Championship two weeks ago, which was the last time the Tour pros teed it up. Anything close to a win this week would lock up a 2016-17 PGA TOUR card for the Canuck.

Brad Fritsch battled for a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Servientrega Championship and outlasted Ollie Schniederjans in a one-hole playoff to claim the title at 11-under 277.

Fritsch sprinkled four birdies and three bogeys across TPC Cartagena in Sunday's finale, all in regulation, before winning the playoff on the par-5 18th with a par. This is the first career Tour victory for the Canuck in what is his 136th start. With this win, he moves from 108th to fifth on the Tour money list and is well on his way to claiming a 2016-17 PGA TOUR card.

Brad Fritsch lit up TPC Cartagena to the tune of a 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the second round of the Servientrega Championship to take the lead at the half-way point at 8-under 136.

The Canuck began his round on the back nine, calmly recording three birdies and swallowing one bogey. He went a little wild on his back nine, circling three birdies and adding an eagle at the par-5 eighth hole, his 17th, late in his round. Currently 108th on the Tour money list, he projects to move inside the top five with a win in Colombia this week.

Brad Fritsch feels the pressure ahead of this week's Tour Championship, as he arrives ranked 30th in the standings.

The Canadian has posted four top 25s on his way to a 18-for-24 record on the Tour this season. His consistency was good enough for 37th on the regular season money list, so he'll need to crack the top 25 during the Tour Finals if he wants the coveted reward of PGA TOUR status. With a 28-for-52 career record on the PGA TOUR, gamers know Fritsch has the chops to handle the big stage.

Brad Fritsch is one of 16 Canadians in a field of 156 at this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Fritsch is 3-for-7 in his national championship with four missed cuts and one post-cut withdrawal. His one top-10 finish in the event came last year (T9/Royal Montreal GC), where after opening in 2-over 72, he closed in 68-67-64. His only other cash was T71 at Shaughnessy G&CC (2011). The 37-year-old made the cut at Glen Abbey (2013) by three strokes (69-73) but withdrew prior to the third round with a back injury. He missed the cut 2008/Glen Abbey. Fritsch lost status on the PGA TOUR after the season-opening Open (post Minor Medical). His only other start on TOUR in 2015 was at the U.S. Open (Chambers Bay) where he tied 46th. He's made 16 starts on the Tour season posting two top 10s, good for 65th on that tour's money list.

Brad Fritsch takes the show on the road to the Pacific Northwest as he readies for this week's U.S. Open.

Fritsch fell short of meeting his Minor Medical when he missed the cut at the season opener, the Open. That explains where his status went, and why we haven't seen him teeing it up on the PGA TOUR since. The Canadian finds his way into the field this week thanks to a 69-67 showing at the Columbus, Ohio, qualifying site. He is just 77th on the Tour money list, and can likely be avoided this week when putting together fantasy rosters.

In his only start on a Minor Medical Extension, Brad Fritsch missed the cut on the number at the Open and has lost status.

The Canuck's opening 2-under-par 35-35-70 was one of just five bogey-free scores on Thursday, but he turned in a 2-over 39-35=74 that included four bogeys -- two on par 5s -- and one double. He closed birdie-par-birdie on the par 5-4-5 finish, but the damage was too much to overcome. Officially, he fell short of meeting the terms of the medical (and a promotion to the Major Medical category) by $143,954 or 116.131 FedExCup points. The most painful fact, however, is that he was just 0.891 FedExCup points shy of securing conditional status. All that was required for that was a solo 75th-place finish. So, the 36-year-old is headed back to the Tour in 2015.

Brad Fritsch is in the published field of next week's Open.

He finished the season ranked 151st in FedExCup points and 140th in earnings. He didn't survive the Tour Finals, but he's in the field at Silverado on a top-10 exemption for a T8 at the Wyndham Championship. It will also be his last (and only) start on a Minor Medical Extension for a back injury. To fulfill its terms for a promotion to the Major Medical category, Fritsch needs to collect 116.131 FedExCup points or $143,954. The Open boasts a purse of $6 million, so the Canuck needs no worse than a two-way T11 worth $144,000 to achieve his goal. (A two-way T4 worth 122.5 FedExCup points would be necessary to reach the same objective via that conduit.) Fritsch is just 0.891 FedExCup points shy of securing conditional status for the remainder of the season. A solo 75th-place finish worth 0.90 FedExCup points would get it done. If he can't meet the secondary goal, he'll lose status on the PGA TOUR.
