Doug LaBelle II is set for his fourth start in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.
LaBelle has twice tied for 30th in the event to go with one missed cut. Playing with conditional status, this is only his second playing opportunity in 2013-14. His first was a missed cut at the Open to kick off the new season. To say he's feeling pressure to perform this week would be an understatement. Feb 5 - 8:14 PM

Doug LaBelle II will have to fight for starts with only conditional status in 2013-14 on the PGA TOUR.

Labelle II was able to Monday qualify for the Open to start the year, but failed to cash in on the opportunity. In 2013, he made 14 of 23 cuts but only managed a pair of top 25s. Given his inability to finish off tournaments in 2013 and his uphill climb for tee times this season, it's probably best for gamers to back off.

With a 5-under-par 31-36=67 at Bayonet Golf Course in Seaside, Calif., Doug LaBelle II shared medalist honors in today's open qualifier for the Open.

DL2 missed the cut in all four events in the Tour Finals, but he secured conditional status on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR for finishing 147th in FedExCup points, so we'll see him 10-12 times over the 45 events. This week's start is a bonus, however, as it would have required maybe 20 withdrawals before his number would have been called on merit. He offset one bogey with five birdies, five on his outward side (the back nine at Bayonet). Mark Hubbard shared the top of the leaderboard at 5-under 32-35=67, also on the strength of six birdies against a lone bogey. In his only previous start on TOUR, he missed the cut in Reno two months ago. Jim Renner (4-under 33-35=68; 5 birdies, 1 bogey) and TOUR winner Jason Gore (4-under 33-35=68, 5 birdies, 1 bogey) tied for third to secure the other two berths into the tournament proper. Renner is a Tour Finals graduate. The field at CordeValle Golf Club is now complete at 132.

Doug LaBelle II has been removed from the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Given he's just 134th in FedExCup points, it's an interesting decision not to play as often as possible. Of course, this assumes he's healthy and there's nothing outside the ropes demanding his attention. He tied for 61st place at the John Deere Classic.

Doug LaBelle spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at TPC Southwind today, burying four birdies along the way. The set included conversions from 16'1" at the 13th hole and 18'11" at 16. Today's score ends an eight-round drought without a sub-70. He signed his card at 4-under 136, six strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Doug LaBelle II is set for his third trip to TPC Southwind for the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

While he's missed the cut in each of his previous two starts in Memphis, he has experienced some success at par-70 courses. Ranking 48th in the all-around category, the biggest surprise may be that he's only 123rd in FedExCup points. Though he's missed the cut in his last two starts, he did successfully qualify for the U.S. Open on Monday.

Doug LaBelle II is 7-under-par 70-67=137 at the midpoint of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, five strokes back of Lucas Glover's 36-hole lead.

DL2 has experienced a very quiet but steady return trip to the PGA TOUR. He entered the week having cashed in eight of 10 starts and sits 112th in FedExCup points. Thus far at TPC Louisiana, he's hit 26 greens and poured in 11 birdies. Four of today's set of six found the cup from outside 10 feet. This included respective conversions of 16'6", 25'11" and 14'7" at the 18th, first and eighth holes. He also drilled home a par save from 19'3" at 6. LaBelle II was the last of 11 to completed two rounds inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.

Doug LaBelle II has been removed from the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

LaBelle II is 8-for-9 on the season and sits 95th in FedExCup points, but it's strange anytime a guy in the middle of the graduate reshuffle withdraws. He posted a season-best T22 in Houston thanks to a closing bogey-free 66, which doesn't suggest that he's dealing with an injury. With next week off already, it's a gutsy move not to play if he's fine.

Doug LaBelle II spun a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Shell Houston Open, improving to 8-under 280 for the tournament.

He got his day off to a roaring start, making an eagle on the par-4 first hole when his approach from 140 yards found the bottom of the cup. He would tack on four birdies, with three of those on par 5s and the fourth at the par-4 10th from 16 inches. His previous best finish this season was a T30 at Pebble Beach. While he still has plenty of players to dodge before he officially tops that, he was T17 at the time of his posting. Next stop will be the Valero Texas Open.

Doug LaBelle II settled for a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

We still don't know why he withdrew from last week's stop at Copperhead following and opening 80, but it's good to see him return immediately. He hit 12 greens in regulation but swallowed four bogeys, two of which as a result of three-putting. He helped offset those over-par holes with three birdies, the longest of which measuring 10'9" at the 14th hole.

Doug LaBelle II withdrew from the Tampa Bay Championship prior to today's second round.

He posted a field-worst, 9-over-par 39-41=80 in the opening round. His loop of Copperhead included one birdie, six bogeys and two doubles. LaBelle II hit just six greens in regulation. If an explanation is released for his decision to call it quits, we will relay it to you. In the meantime, he's scheduled to tee it up at next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational where he's missed the cut in both of his previous appearances (2007, 2008).

Doug LaBelle backed up his opening 66 at The Honda Classic with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round to reach the midpoint in 6-under 134.

DL2 added another five birdies at PGA National today, the longest of which from just 12 feet at the par-5 18th hole, his last of the round. Yet, he's probably kicking himself for the double bogey-6 at the sixth hole where he rinsed his approach. He also whiffed on a par save from 51 inches at the par-4 12th. He signed his card sitting three strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Doug LaBelle II carded a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of The Honda Classic.

LaBelle II is one of several golfers to sign his card sitting two strokes off Camilo Villegas' overnight lead. The 38-year-old journeyman erased an early bogey at the par-4 11th hole with five birdies, three of which ranging from 10-16 feet. In his only previous appearance at PGA National, he tied for 13th place in 2007 thanks to a closing 66.

Doug LaBelle II has been added to the published field of this week's Honda Classic.

DL2 was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he gained entry on a sponsor exemption. The journeyman has cashed in all four of his starts this year but has yet to crack a top 25. He'll be making his first appearance at PGA National.
Mon, Feb 25, 2013 04:49:00 PM

Doug LaBelle II crafted a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 at PGA West's Nicklaus Private in his opening round of the Humana Challenge.

LaBelle II took advantage of the par 5s today, netting two eagles and a birdie to finish one stroke behind the threesome sharing the overnight lead. He finished T49 last week at Waialae thanks to a pair of 66s in the middle two rounds. He'll be aiming to pile on today's heroics in his second round at Palmer Private on Friday.
