Chad Collins added a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open.
The Tour Finals grad hit 14 greens, buried three birdies and squared two bogeys. He's 3-under 213, only three strokes off the 54-hole lead. At last check, 20 golfers sat inside the top 10 of the leaderboard, so it'll be anyone's to win on Sunday. Collins' best finish in 112 PGA TOUR starts is a T4 at Mayakoba in 2010. Mar 7 - 3:08 PM

Chad Collins posted an even-par 35-37=72 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach the halfway point in 2-under 140, one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Given the challenge on the island this week, perhaps the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship should have been contested at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Collins split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation today. That kind of precision usually yields a red number, but the journeyman erased four birdies with two bogeys and a double. So, running in place may translate into climbing the leaderboard at the PRO.
Mar 6 - 11:14 AM

Chad Collins end-loaded his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open before signing for a 2-under-par 70.

Collins carded respective nine of 38 and 32. He squared two bogeys against no birdies going out on the back side of Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, but scored bogey-free 4-under with four birdies on his inward side. The journeyman has four top 10s in 112 PGA TOUR starts, one of which in this event in 2010. He's flashed some form this season, evident by a string of six paydays until a missed cut at last week's Honda, so the stars are aligned a bit for him to make more noise on the island.
Mar 5 - 3:35 PM

Chad Collins has found a spot in the field at this week's Honda Classic.

He was one of five to gain entry when the second reshuffle of 2014-15 was executed after the Northern Trust Open. Collins jumped 10 spots to 14th and comfortably into a tee time at PGA National where he's just 2-for-5 with zero top 55s. However, he'll arrive for this edition having cashed in his last six starts, four since the holiday break. That stretch includes a season-best T17 at the Farmers. Of his 26 rounds this season, 18 are red numbers.

Chad Collins has collected four straight paychecks ahead of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Collins has signed for sub-70 rounds in 10 of his last 12 rounds but will face a much tougher test this week at Torrey Pines. He is getting it done with the flat stick, as he currently ranks 18th on TOUR in strokes gained:putting. If his putting goes cold on this week's poa annua greens then gamers chasing recent finishes may be in for an unpleasant surprise.
Feb 3 - 11:35 PM

Chad Collins cracked the top 30 in two of his three starts to begin the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

After missing the cut in The McGladrey Classic to start the season, Collins posted back-to-back T29s before the holiday break. He earned his card via the Tour Finals, so the early FedExCup points he netted were crucial in terms of the first reshuffle that occurred after his last start. He ranks 111th in the FEC standings.

Chad Collins toured El Camaleón Golf Club in 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Fresh off a T29 in Mississippi, Collins book-ended today's loop with bogey-5s at Nos. 12 and 9. In between, he converted an eagle-3 at 13 and five birdies, including three in a row beginning at the third hole. He maximized on his chances, too, given he split only seven (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation. Collins signed his card sitting one back of the six clubhouse co-leaders.

The second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship was suspended for darkness at 5:01 p.m. CT.

This is the second straight day that the field of 132 couldn't complete play despite Mother Nature's cooperation. The PGA TOUR has essentially done its members a solid by booking more than the daylight hours can handle. Once again, 15 golfers were stranded. Chad Collins is 1-over-par through 16 holes on his round, but he's 1-under through 34 and just inside the cut line, so you know that he'll be back at 7:40 a.m. on Saturday to finish. The third round is scheduled to begin at 8:50 a.m. with threesomes off split tees.

Chad Collins prepares for his 2014-15 season debut this week at The McGladrey Classic.

Collins finished in a share of 33rd place in his 2010 Seaside debut but took a step back last year, shooting 6-over-par on his way to a missed cut. He was 11-for-28 last year on TOUR to miss the FedExCup Playoffs but finds his way back via the Tour Finals. Collins has finished outside the top 30 in each of his last 15 TOUR starts, missing the cut in 11 of those. Gamers should avoid until he shows signs of a turnaround.

Chad Collins has graduated from the Tour Finals and is ready to rock for the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

Collins has been here before, but has failed to make the most of his opportunities in the past. In 104 PGA TOUR starts, he's earned cuts made in just 49 (47%) of them. Collins has never earned a win on TOUR, let alone a podium finish. It's a different story down on the Tour, as he's collected 11 podium finishes, including two victories since 2005. So, we know he has some upside potential. Collins will start in 44nd position in the opening reshuffle.

Chad Collins makes his third start in the Wyndham Championship later this week.

After missing the cut in the 2008 edition, Collins returned to Sedgefield CC in 2010 and tied for 28th. Of note, five of his six rounds have been 2-under-par or better in this event. He enters the week 156th in the FedExCup standings and 155th on the money list. In order to retain his PGA TOUR card for next season, he must crack the top 125 of one of those lists at the end of this week. A more realistic goal is finishing between 126 and 150 on the FEC standings and earning conditional status for 2014-15.

Chad Collins opened The Greenbrier Classic with a 4-under-par 34-32=66, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

After reaching 51st in the FedExCup standings in mid-January, Collins has drifted all the way to 139th upon arriving in West Virginia this week. It was ugly early, too, as he sat birdie-free 2-over through six holes. He's turn it around with birdies at 7 and 8 to turn in even par. Four birdies coming in give reason to believe that he'll cash for the first time in eight starts. His longest par breakers measured 15'6" at the par-5 12th hole and 11'7" at the par-3 18th.

Chad Collins has missed his last seven cuts leading up to The Greenbrier Classic this week.

Collins tied for 51st here in 2010 in his only start at The Old White TPC. That combination should be enough to scare most investors away. His only top 10 of the season came back in January at the Humana Challenge.

Chad Collins submitted a pair of 3-under-par 69s at today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Woodmont Country Club's North Course in Rockville, Maryland, good for medalist honors and a trip to his second U.S. Open (T40, 2006).

The PGA TOUR member buried four birdies against one bogey in each round and finished three strokes clear of a threesome in second place. With four berths into the major reserved for this site, no playoff was necessary. Billy Hurley III (3-under 74-67=141), Nick Mason (70-71=141) and former PGA TOUR member Donald Constable (72-69=141) will be making their debuts in any major next week. Notables that failed to qualify include: 143--John Mallinger ... 144--Paul Claxton ... 1477--Kyle Thompson.

Chad Collins tied for 44th in the 2010 Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and has earned his way back for a second try this week.

Collins currently ranks 118th in the FedExCup standings, so anything he can do to bag more FEC points this week would be a major plus. He ranks 197th in ball-striking, so he'll have to do his heavy lifting on and around the greens. He is 27th in strokes gained-putting.
