Prior to the start of his opening round tee time, David Toms has withdrawn from THE PLAYERS, citing a back injury.
Toms was set to start his week with a 2:25 p.m. ET tee time today but will instead sit this week out. He's been dormant on the PGA TOUR since a missed cut at the Sony Open in January. Since then, he's spent his time on the senior circuit (8-for-8 but just one top 10). Toms still has full status thanks to his 124th place finish in the FedExCup last season, but he appears to be drifting toward the PGA TOUR Champions. Thu, May 11, 2017 08:58:00 AM

David Toms brings plenty of course knowledge back to TPC Sawgrass for his appearance at THE PLAYERS this week in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

The 50-year-old has played just once on the PGA TOUR since becoming eligible for the senior circuit in January. He is just 1-for-3 on the main stage this season but 8-for-8 on the PGA TOUR Champions. Surprisingly he's found just one top 10 against the greyhairs so perhaps that's why he's spent a majority of his time away from the PGA TOUR. Given his lack of stellar form, it would be a bit of a surprise to see him contend this week at TPC Sawgrass. In 22 previous PLAYERS visits, he is 11-for-22 with seven top 25s.

13-time PGA TOUR winner David Toms contests his 11th overall Sanderson Farms Championship and third straight at the Country Club of Jackson.

This is Toms' 613th career TOUR start and second of the season after a missed cut (by four) at the Safeway Open (74-71). Last season, his 24th, the now 49-year-old finished 124th in the FedExCup standings, ending with a MC at The Barclays (by 11) at 15-over 79-77=156. His lone top 10 in 19 events was here at the SFC where he was a 54-hole co-leader and closed in 3-under 69 for T2, his second straight top 10 (T9/2015). The Louisiana native and resident's last win came at the 2011 Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

David Toms has backed out of this week's Wyndham Championship, he will be replaced in the field by Andres Romero.

The 49-year-old did not cite an injury for now.. Toms was set to make his 18th start at the Wyndham, posting top 25s in five of his last seven starts here. Currently ranked 121st in the FedExCup standings, this will very likely take him out the FEC Playoffs conversation. We will update if any injury news pops up but for now gamers need to remove him from all weekly lineups. In his place, Andres Romero will be making his fifth appearance at Sedgefield Country Club with a T28 (2010) and T14 (2014) being the highlights. UPDATE: reported that Toms backed out to help out with flood relief in his home state of Louisiana.

David Toms remained blemish-free through 36 holes at the Barbasol Championship following a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-34=66 during round two, climbing to 9-under 133 on the week.

Toms kept his ball in front of him throughout the round, missing just three fairways and four greens. His flat stick remained quiet for much of the round but he did save par from 16'2" at the par-3 sixth hole to keep his bogey-free streak alive. The 49-year-old entered the week ranked 110th in the FedExCup standings, and a good weekend could help secure his spot in the Playoffs. Today's round matches his low for the season, previously recorded in round three of the Sanderson Farms, way back in November.

David Toms has unfinished business with Oakmont Country Club and earned his way back there today after posting 7-under-par 66-69=135 during the U.S. Open sectional qualifier held in Memphis, Tennessee, joining nine others who played at Germantown Country Club and Ridgeway Country Club during the longest day in golf.

Toms finished T5 at Oakmont Country Club during the 2007 U.S. Open and will now get another crack at it next week. While Toms was notable, it was D.J. Trahan (69-62) and Andres Gonzales (64-67) who actually shared medalist honors at 11-under 131. The TCU product Tom Hoge finished alone at 8-under-par 67-67=134. There was a five-way tie for fourth at 135, which included Derek Fathauer (69-66), Andrew Landry (68-67), Dicky Pride (67-68), J.J. Henry (67-68), and the aforementioned Toms. Rounding out the 10 qualifiers were the 136 group of Sung Kang (67-69), LSU's Sam Burns (67-69) who outlasted Whee Kim (72-64), Brian Gay (70-66), Thomas Aiken (69-67), and Robert Garrigus (66-70) in a 6-for-2 playoff. This was one of the deeper sectionals of the day as the FedEx St. Jude Classic is set to take place just down the road. There were handfuls of notable misses here, but a few that fell one stroke shy of a playoff include Ryan Palmer, Scott Stallings, Scott Langley, Steve Stricker, Abraham Anc

David Toms constructed a 3-under-par 32-35=67 to open his week at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

Toms surprisingly missed six (of 14) fairways but couldn't have been missing by much as he still landed 14 greens on the day. The LSU alum got started on the back nine and splashed in two straight birdie putts from outside 18 feet, the longest a 26'3" bomb at the par-5 11th. The Thursday Army was ready to put him on 59 watch at that point, but he quickly swallowed bogeys in two of his next five holes, forcing him to start over at even-par. Toms would circle three more birdies coming into the clubhouse, each of them coming from the 6-to-10 foot range. Colonial Country Club remains one of Toms favorite golf courses on TOUR, as it takes distance out of the equation and it's the site of his 2011 victory.

David Toms preps for a home game as he returns for a 23rd appearance at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The LSU product is 16-for-21 including a win at this event. Since the venue changed to TPC Louisiana he boasts a 8-for-9 record that includes three top 20s. On the season he is resembling vintage David Toms, as well, record six top 40s in nine starts. That includes a runner-up finish at the Sanderson Farms Championship back in November. That puts Toms at 102nd in the FedExCup race and also square of the radar for gamers this week who are looking for a great cut-maker with upside.

David Toms is in Humble, Texas, for this week's Shell Houston Open and warmed-up with a T39 (73-69-69-74) at last week's Puerto Rico Open.

The Golf Club of Houston's Tournament Course is a 2005 Rees Jones design with Toms a design consultant. He finished 144th in the FedExCup standings last season but retained status at No. 125 in earnings -- thru the Wyndham -- using the latter to make his 15th career start at the Shell. The 49-year-old returned from a five-year hiatus to post a T37 in 2014 and a missed cut by two (72-70) last year. He's 4-for-7 on the season with a T2 at the Sanderson Farms his only top-30 finish. The Louisiana native and resident is No. 1 on TOUR in scrambling (69.77 percent) but 216th in driving distance (269.5) and 179th in birdie average (3.26).

David Toms turns his attention to this week's AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am where he will battle a three-course rotation of coastal tracks.

Toms has recorded 111 top 10s during his 595-event PGA TOUR career. However, none of those have came at the AT&T Pro-Am. In 11 tries, the closest he got to a top 10 here was a T13 during the 1998 edition. More recently, he is 2-for-3 to kick off the new season, including a T2 at the Sanderson Farms back in November. Despite a good start to the 2014-15 season, gamers should look elsewhere considering his poor tournament history.

David Toms will ring in the new year ranked 27th in the FedExCup standings.

The PGA TOUR veteran from Louisiana is approaching 600 career starts, but shows little signs of slowing down. Sure, he hasn't won since the 2011 Crowne Plaza, but his runner-up finish at the Sanderson Farms shows he's still a legitimate contender. Gamers can target Toms on any short venues or courses that favor accuracy over distance.

Fifty-four-hole co-leader David Toms rallied to a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to wrap his 11th appearance at 17-under 271, one shot shy of champion Peter Malnati and joint runner-up with William McGirt.

After opening in 67-69 and a bogey-free 66, which concluded on Monday, Toms co-lead with rookie Patton Kizzire at 14-under, one ahead of five players, including Malnati. On his round, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and finished the week 46/56, first in the field in that stat at an 82.14 percent clip. The 48-year-old hit 14 greens in regulation in the finale, converting on four, each from inside eight feet. His one dropped shot came via a three-putt from 43'6" at the par-5 fifth and was sandwiched among eight pars to turn in 1-over. The 13-time TOUR winner's split came in back-to-back fashion at Nos. 10 and 11, and 14 and 15. Of his other 10 chances, only two came from inside of 20 feet, and those were the first two holes he played in the final frame. Toms' runner-up finish was his best showing since solo second at the 2012 McGladrey Classic and the 16th of his career on 594 starts.

David Toms fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to share the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 14-under 202.

Toms finished 144th last season in the FedExCup standings, missing the Playoffs for just the second time, but he nabbed 125th on the money list to maintain status. The 13-time TOUR winner began his 24th season with a pedestrian T32 at the Open, but he did break par in all four rounds. He's made that seven consecutive now, opening the SFC in 67-69-66. Toms began his third round at 8-under T12 and seven off the pace. He circled six on the card at Nos. 6, 9, 11, 13, 14 and 17 to vault into a share of the top spot with playing partner Patton Kizzire. The 48-year-old, who placed T9 in last season's inaugural playing at the CC of Jackson, landed 11 (of 14) fairways and at last check, leads the field in that category (34/42) at an 80.95 percent clip. There is no repairing between rounds three and four, so Toms is paired with Kizzire again for the finale and scheduled to go off at 9:44 a.m. CT.
