Rocco Mediate prepares for his ninth playing of the Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada, and first since a missed cut in 2012. UPDATE: Mediate totaled 25 points (7 points, 6, 7, 5) and is currently T20 on the leaderboard, his first paycheck on the PGA TOUR since T43 at the McGladrey in October, 2012.
The 53-year-old is making his first PGA TOUR start this season and just his fifth overall since his last full season on TOUR in 2012. He's a six-time TOUR winner in 642 career events, most recently at the 2010 Open. The Pennsylvania native is probably best remembered for his playoff loss to Tiger Woods at the 2008 U.S. Open at Torrey Pines. He's 12-for-12 this season on the PGA TOUR Champions and ranks 10th on the money list with two top 10s, including last month's three-shot win at the PGA Senior Championship after rounds of 62-66-71-66. Mediate is 3-for-8 in Reno with one top 25, a T9 in 2009. Wed, Jun 29, 2016 11:00:00 AM

Rocco Mediate will tee it up for the first time on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 at the Puerto Rico Open.

Mediate now holds only Past Champion Status on the PGA TOUR, but plays regularly as a member of the Champions Tour. He last made the cut in a PGA TOUR event at The McGladrey Classic in 2012, tying for 43rd. He's traveled to Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico three times in the past, making the cut twice but failing to crack the top 60. His fantasy value is minimal this week.

Rocco Mediate makes a rare appearance on the PGA TOUR at this week's Wyndham Championship.

Mediate is a two-time winner of this event, but both of those triumphs came at Forest Oaks CC. Sedgefield CC took over as the host venue in 2008, so all research involving course history should begin with the '08 edition. In four trips to Sedgefield, Mediate's best finish is a T22 in 2012.

Rocco Mediate withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open prior to his second round due to an injury to his left hip.

The newlywed opened with a 2-over-par 37-37=74 at Torrey Pines South on Thursday. He was scheduled to go off the first tee on the North at 9:10 a.m. PT today. Since he's now full-time on the Champions Tour, we will leave him off our Injury Report.

Rocco Mediate earned his most recent PGA TOUR victory at the Open in 2010, and returns to play CordeValle Golf Club again this week.

Mediate recorded four eagles in his magical week back in 2010, but now focuses much of his attention on the Champions Tour. This is more of a trip down memory lane, so his fantasy value is minimal at best.

Rocco Mediate carded a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Open, finishing two strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Not only is this an impressive effort by the soon-to-be 50-year-old -- he'll hit the half-century mark on Dec. 17 -- he was in our crosshairs today after pulling out of last week's stop in Vegas after three rounds. We still don't know why he withdrew from the JT Shriners, but it doesn't matter now. He hit 11 greens and limited the damage to just one bogey at CordeValle today. Of his five birdies, three found the cup from beyond 11 feet, the longest of which measuring 26'7" at the third hole. He also converted a par save from 10'6" at 11. This is his first sub-70 round on the track since a third-round 67 during his victory in 2010.

Rocco Mediate withdrew after his third round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

After going out in bogey-free, 2-under-par 34, Mediate limped home in birdie-free 5-over to post 3-over 74. He was an aggregate 2-under 211 through 54 holes. He did not submit an explanation for his decision. If he's able, he'll tee it up at next week's Open in San Martin, Calif. Mediate's most recent of six PGA TOUR victories occurred at CordeValle in 2010.

Rocco Mediate is set to play the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open in what could be one of his final stops on the PGA TOUR before heading to the Champions Tour.

The long-time crowd favorite will turn 50 on December 17th, and would love to notch his seventh victory on the main TOUR before sailing off into the sunset of the Champions Tour. Mediate last cracked a top 10 at the Reno-Tahoe Open, when he tied for ninth in 2009. He tied for 57th in last year’s trip to TPC Summerlin.

Rocco Mediate shot a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The 49-year-old called it quits before his second round last week at The Old White TPC due to an injured leg. If it's still bothering him today, his score didn't show it. He hit 13 greens and poured in five birdies, the longest of which from 11'6" at the 13th hole. He signed his card sitting four shots back of the clubhouse lead.

Rocco Mediate withdrew before his second round of The Greenbrier Classic due to an injured leg.

Mediate was scheduled to go off the first tee at 12:50 p.m. ET today. He opened with a 5-over-par 37-38=75. This ends his modest consecutive cuts made streak at five. For the time being, he's scheduled to compete in next week's John Deere Classic.

Rocco Mediate posted a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Mediate is 7-for-13 on the year but hasn't posted a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since his win at the Open in 2010. That's also the last time he's scored as low as he did today, having opened that victory with a 64. Today's round was buoyed by a kick-in eagle from 27 inches at the par-5 13th hole. He also rolled in four birdies, the longest from 13 feet at the 17th, but Mediate also saved his round with par saves from 13'4" at the 11th and a 13-yard hole-out from off the green at No. 4.

At 7-under-par 68-69=137, Rocco Mediate is five strokes off the lead at the midpoint of the Wells Fargo Championship.

He's 5-for-11 this year with zero top 25s but he's rolling his rock this week, and that's the name of the game at Quail Hollow. Mediate has converted five birdies in each round, including all of the four par 5s today. After conversions of 51'0" (10th hole) and 21'6" (13th) in his opening round, he knocked in a par save from 18'6" at the fifth. He brought that stroke back to the course today, pouring in three birdies from beyond 11 feet, the longest measuring 19'10" at the 10th. Put it all together and it makes sense that he led the field in Strokes Gained-Putting when he signed his card following his second round.

Rocco Mediate turned in a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 for his second round of the Zurich Classic to get to the midpoint in 8-under 136, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Every once in a great while, he reminds us that what was once good can be again. He's missed only three (of 28) fairways thus far, and he hit 15 greens today en route to five birdies and an eagle-3 from 23'8" at the finishing hole. Mediate is 4-for-10 with no top 25s this year. In fact, he hasn't recorded a top 25 in 34 starts since winning the Open in mid-October of 2010.

Rocco Mediate has been removed from the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

Mediate will turn 50 years of age in December. He's fully exempt on the PGA TOUR this season, but his fantasy value is long gone. Gamers won't miss him this week.

It's no surprise that Rocco Mediate is teeing it up in the Arnold Palmer Invitational as the Pennsylvania natives have developed quite the friendship over the years.

Mediate's played a full slate in 2012 with eight events already in the books and three cashes. He's been hot and cold at Bay Hill with a second place finish in 2007 the highlight and missed cuts on numerous occasions.
