Chad Collins turns his attention to Plainfield Country Club for this week's Barclays.
Collins finished T64 in his 2010 Barclays debut but hasn't earned his way back until now. He is 16-for-23 on the season, including four top 25s. Currently ranked 113th in the FedExCup standings, Collins will need a big week in order to qualify for the Deutsche Bank Championship. Sitting at 89th in the all-around ranking, perhaps he will play the spoiler role this week and advance to TPC Boston. Aug 24 - 8:56 PM

Chad Collins hopes the third time is the charm at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Collins missed the cut in his 2010 Quicken Loans debut and returned last year, only to slam his trunk early yet again. He arrived 13-for-17 in his debut, so form was not the issue. After falling short at Aronimink Golf Club and Congressional Country Club, Collins has a chance to redeem himself this week at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club.

Chad Collins patched together a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's final round of The Greenbrier Classic to conclude at 11-under 269 and a T6-finish.

Collins, a non-winner on the PGA TOUR in 122 prior starts, was in the catbird seat at 10-under (T5) and just one off the pace to begin his final round. He outpaced one bogey with two birdies at Nos. 6 and 7, from 15'4" and 10'3" respectively to turn in 1-under. The 36-year-old circled back-to-backs at 13 and 14, and was now tied for the lead at 13-under. After pars on 15 and 16, Collins need only finish level on the par-5 17th and the par-3 finisher to join a playoff for the title and/or secure a place in the 144th Open Championship, with the low four in the top 12 not already exempt getting invites. He did neither, finishing bogey-bogey, including three-putting the 17th from 52 feet and failing to save par after missing the green long and left on 18. A devastating result no doubt. His small consolation is his first top 10 on the season (19 starts) and a personal-best at the Greenbrier (T51/2010).
Jul 5 - 11:01 PM

Chad Collins carded a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 10-under 200, one stroke back of four players who share the top spot.

Collins began his day at 8-under (T3) and one swing off the pace, and after three birdies against one bogey, he remains one stroke in arrears. The 36-year-old circled par breakers on Nos. 3, 6 and 10, squaring his lone bogey at the par-4 seventh. His 16'5" birdie roll at the par-3 third was his longest conversion, the other two coming from inside six feet. The story on Collins' round however, were his par putts, including from 13'3" at the 15th, and from 12'6" at the par-5 12th after his approach shot found the water. For his efforts, the 36-year-old striped 13 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation playing in the penultimate pairing with Bryce Molder. Collins, who entered the week 110th in the FedExCup standings, has a season-best T11 (Shell Houston Open) on 18 starts and inclusive of this week, has now made nine consecutive cuts on TOUR. His career-best (122 starts) is T4 at the 2010 Mayakoba Golf Classic.
Jul 4 - 7:57 PM

Chad Collins answered his opening 65 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round to post 8-under 132 at the midpoint, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Collins split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, but he waited until his inward nine for all of his heavy lifting. After going out with eight pars and a bogey, he circled five birdies to cover one bogey on the back half of The Old White TPC. He walked off with a birdie conversion from 25'9" at the par-3 18th hole, but his longest conversion of the day disappeared for par from 26'5" at the par-4 first. This extends his consecutive cuts made streak to a career-best eight, but more importantly, it positions him to make a run at his first PGA TOUR title in his 123rd start on the circuit.
Jul 3 - 12:47 PM

Chad Collins carded a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing just three shots off the clubhouse lead.

The PGA TOUR's leader in scrambling went 3-for-3 in the stat today, but couldn't avoid a bogey thanks to a three-putt on the wonderfully challenging green at the par-3 third hole. Elsewhere, he picked off six birdies, including conversions from 13'6" and 34'2" at Nos. 11 and 7, respectively. Today's red number ends a drought without one in a first round at five starts. Meanwhile, he has an active streak of seven straight under-par scores in second rounds. And despite cashing in 14 of 18 starts this season, Collins is 110th in the FedExCup standings without a top 10.
Jul 2 - 5:06 PM

Chad Collins rides a cool wave into this week's Greenbrier Classic and arrives 110th in the FedExCup standings.

Collins is in the midst of a consecutive cuts made streak of seven heading into the Greenbrier, currently T8 on the PGA TOUR in that category. That includes a T39 at last week's Travelers Championship and a T11 at the Shell Houston Open to begin the stretch. The five in-between haven't cracked the top 40, but still. Staying on topic, Collins is 2-for-2 at the Greenbrier with a T51 in the 2010 inaugural and a T68 last year, where he opened in 4-under-par 66 (73-70-72). The 36-year-old, who earned his card via the Web.com Tour Finals, is a more-than-respectable 14-for-18 on the season, but just three have busted the top 25, including the aforementioned T11.

Jul 1 - 8:15 AM

Chad Collins makes his way to the Colonial Country Club for this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational and enters the week ranked 101st in the FedExCup standings.

Collins posted par or better in each of his four rounds at his CPI debut in 2010 to finish T44. After a three-year hiatus, he returned to shoot 73-74 in last year's edition to miss the cut by six. The 36-year-old journeyman earned his card via the Web.com Tour Finals and has posted three top 25s on 14 starts, missing four cuts. He logged a T11 at the Shell Houston Open for a season-best but is trending in the wrong direction going T43-T68 since.

The opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was halted at 2:12 p.m. CT due to heavy rain. Golf Channel reported that play is scheduled to resume at 3:30 p.m.

This is not unexpected and it probably won't be the last suspension of the tournament, either. The entire morning wave of 78 golfers has completed 18 holes and all of the 78 in the afternoon draw were on the course at the time the horn sounded. Chad Collins is the only from the late starters that has as many as nine holes in the books. He's 1-under at the turn with holes 1-9 to play.
Apr 23 - 3:27 PM

Chad Collins turned in a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the third-round of the Shell Houston Open and is in the clubhouse at 8-under 208.

Collins circled one birdie on his outward-nine converting on an eight-footer on No. 3 but quickly dropped that shot three-putting the par-5 fourth from 86 feet. He squared another bogey on par-3 ninth, missing a five-footer for par after missing the green. Collins went bogey-free after the turn converting three birdies from 4 feet to a longest of 15 feet on No. 17. At 98th in the FedExCup ranking, he'll look for a good finishing round to regain some much-needed momentum from earlier in the season.
Apr 4 - 4:05 PM

Chad Collins looks to regain earlier season form at the Shell Houston Open.

At one point this season Collins made six straight cuts but he's trunk-slammed in three of his last four events. His weekend prospects look dim as he's missed the cut in all three previous tries at the SHO. He's third on TOUR in scrambling -- a plus at SHO -- but he'll need all of it to offset his 196th total driving and 145th greens in regulation rankings.

Chad Collins added a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open.

The Web.com 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.
