David Toms could only muster an even-par 38-34=72 in the third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship and is tied for fifth at 10-under 206.

Toms began the day holding a share of the lead with John Rollins, but had to spend his entire round battling back from a poor start. He followed a trio of pars with three consecutive bogeys beginning with the par-3 fourth hole. He found a bounce-back birdie at the par-e seventh hole, and then added birdies at the par-3 10th and par-4 18th holes to equalize his round. Now four off the lead, he will likely need a low round at the Country Club of Jackson Sunday if he is to steal a 14th PGA TOUR win.

David Toms answered his opening, bogey-free 68 at the Sanderson Farms Championship with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 to post 10-under 134 and assume outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Toms has put on a clinic at the Country Club of Jackson thus far. After finding 11 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation on Thursday, he collected 12 and 15, respectively, today. His second-round opportunities yielded six birdies. Interestingly, he converted only one on the set of par 5s for the second straight day. There are certain veterans that figure out a way to win one more event before turning 50. Obviously, defending champion Woody Austin did so, but others with a little more ilk also rush to mind. Tom Watson (48) and Loren Roberts (47) weren't spring chickens when they capped off their totals. Toms will turn 48 on Jan. 4, so he fits that profile perfectly.

David Toms spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Toms may be pushing 48 years of age -- his birthday is Jan. 4 -- but he played like he was in the heart of his prime today. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation. Along the way, he collected four birdies. Given the airshow, it's no surprise that at last check, he ranked ninth in the field of 132 with a strokes gained: tee-to-green clip of 2.536.

David Toms enjoyed a 5-under-par 31-34=65 for his final round of The McGladrey Classic.

If Sea Island Resort has horses, there's probably one named after the Louisiana native. He's played in all five editions of the McGladrey and has a pair of top threes to show for it. He added to his list of accomplishments this week, but it was a rough going early. Toms went 0-for-10 in birdie chances in the opening round, but regrouped for a five-birdie 66 to make the cut. A bogey-free 67 on Saturday assured safety from the 54-hole cut, but he really turned on the jets today. Despite hitting only 12 greens in regulation, Toms squared one bogey and buried six birdies, four of which ranging 22-34 feet. He also holed out for birdie from off the front of the green 12 yards away at the par-5 15th. He even poured in a par save from 10'1" at the par-3 12th. At 9-under 271, the 47-year-old is the outright 72-hole clubhouse leader. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the day measured 4.570.

David Toms has been removed from the published field of this week's Frys.com Open.

Toms finished inside the top 120 in both FedExCup points and earnings in 2013-14, and did so in just 20 starts. While he's obviously slowing down, he's proven that his game still play on certain tracks. He'll turn 48 years of age in early January, so the Champions Tour isn't tugging just yet.

David Toms enters The Barclays having cracked the top 20 in two of his last three PGA TOUR starts.

The LSU Tiger enters the week 112th in the FedExCup standings, so he must stick around for the weekend at Ridgewood CC if he his to have any hope at advancing to the second leg of the FEC Playoffs. While Toms has seen this layout on two occasions, it didn't go well. He missed the cut both times, failing to break par in any of his four rounds.

David Toms carded a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 7-under 203.

Toms wowed the crowd with his hole-in-one at the par-3 seventh hole from 199 yards. It was his third ace on the PGA TOUR, and first since the 2004 Memorial Tournament. He recorded two birdies and one bogey on the rest of his navigation of Sedgefield CC, with each of the birdies falling from inside four feet.

David Toms posted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

First, whew! He had withdrawn during each of his last two starts with a back injury. That includes an early WD from last week's PGA Championship. Toms turned the page on that today at Sedgefield, striping all 14 fairways and hitting 14 greens in regulation. The airshow yielded five birdies, the longest from just 10'4" at the par-4 13th. Both of his bogeys were three-putts, the first from just 13'3" at the par-3 third.

David Toms is listed in the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

This may be a mere formality just so that he doesn't lock himself out of the FedExCup Playoffs. Toms couldn't play the PGA Championship due to a lingering back injury that stopped his march at the Barracuda before the third round. He's currently 117th in FedExCup points and 116th in earnings, so he may still sit out the regular-season finale if he thinks he's safe once the numbers have been crunched following this weekend's major.

The PGA of America alerted its followers on Twitter that David Toms has withdrawn from the PGA Championship due to a back injury.

This is not a surprise. He survived the cut at last week's Barracuda Championship, but couldn't give it a go in the third round due to the same malady. Toms is 117th in the FedExCup standings, so he'll have to hold his breath to qualify for the Playoffs. He's also 116th on the money list, so his opportunities to retain status for 2014-15 are promising.

David Toms withdrew from the Barracuda Championship prior to his third round due to a back injury.

He was scheduled to tee off at 10:40 a.m. PT. Toms reached the midpoint with 11 points thanks to an 11-point second round. Today's news and decision will have an impact on his value for next week's PGA Championship.

David Toms settled for a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

He posted 7-under 135 to sit two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but it's still a disappointing day since he failed to parlay Thursday's success into a charge today. Overall, Toms landed only 10 greens in regulation and offset two bogeys with three birdies. In step with his regression, his longest conversion dropped for bogey from 25'10" at the par-5 17th hole. His most notable birdies measured 16'2" at the par-5 10th where he began the day and 13'7" at 3.

David Toms turned in a 6-under-par 34-31=65 for his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

Toms is coming off a relatively rare feat of recording four red numbers in the same tournament without cracking the top 25. Such was his experience at The Greenbrier Classic where he tied for 26th at 5-under 69-69-68-69=275. His putter made the trip to the Quad Cities today as he poured in seven birdies, five of which from outside 13 feet. The highlight occurred at the par-3 12th where he drilled it home from 25'2". At last check, his strokes gained-putting split sat at 3.343. His lone gaffe occurred at the par-5 second where he rinsed his approach and two-putted from 10'7" for bogey. He signed his card sitting just two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

David Toms returns to TPC Deere Run for this week's John Deere Classic.

While Toms is a veteran of 12 editions of this event, he's only played the current venue four times. Two of those counted for missed cuts, while another was a withdrawal. His only paycheck came in 2005 when he shared 40th. At 115th in the FedExCup standings, it's likely that he's added this to his schedule as an attempt to bank a few extra points to assure his inclusion into the Playoffs later this season.
