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 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. May 19 - 7:40 PM

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.

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.
Apr 1 - 3:02 PM

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.
Feb 23 - 11:01 AM

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.
