Billy Mayfair has been added to the published field of this week's Barracuda Championship.

Mayfair was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He slid in easily when 11 were removed today. The five-time PGA TOUR winner is 1-for-3 this season (T75, Travelers). He's also cashed in six of 13 starts on the Tour, but sits 141st on its money list. Mayfair will turn 48 years of age on Aug. 6, so he can almost hear the Champions Tour calling.

Billy Mayfair has been added to the published field of this week's John Deere Classic.

Mayfair was the 12th alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was the second of two to gain entry with withdrawals this afternoon. If he doesn't remain committed to his spot at the Tour's Utah Championship, he'll be making his 19th appearance at the Deere.
Jul 7 - 4:47 PM

Billy Mayfair returns to the Travelers Championship for the 23rd time later this week.

While Mayfair has seen TPC River Highlands plenty of times over the years, he has just a pair of top-10 finishes in this event and tied for 81st a year ago. While he's made four of nine cuts on the Tour in 2014, he's missed his only attempt on the PGA TOUR. At this point, he plays with only Past Champion status.

Billy Mayfair landed a sponsor exemption into this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Mayfair has loyally teed it up here 23 times since 1989, so consider this a reward for his past patronage. His success has been limited to 11 paydays and just one top 10, which was a T10 back in 2004. This is his first start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, as he only owns Past Champion status.

Billy Mayfair has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Mayfair tied for ninth place at Annandale on Sunday to earn a top-10 exemption into the field at Glen Abbey this week. There's some synergy as it relates to his berth. His most recent of 15 runner-up finishes on the PGA TOUR occurred on the track in 2008. He'll arrive ranked 197th in FedExCup points.

Billy Mayfair spun a blemish-free 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to end his week at 15-under 273.

Mayfair was without a top 25 on his season entering his trip to Mississippi, so while he is still far from inside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings, at least he has a top 10 in tow. Today's round featured two birdies and an eagle sprinkled among 15 pars. Considering he missed eight GIR, his scrambling propped him up. He is not currently in the field for the RBC Canadian Open, but has that option by virtue of his top 10.

Billy Mayfair tore up Annandale Golf Club in his second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship for a bogey-free, 10-under-par 31-31=62.

Friday night's suspension had nothing on the soon-to-be 47-year-old (Aug. 6). He started on the back side of Annandale and completed half his round with five birdies. Upon returning this morning, he promptly birdied the par-4 first hole before adding eagle-3s at Nos. 5 and 7. He posted 10-under 134 at the midpoint to sit four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. This is his lowest round on the PGA TOUR since a career-best 61 in the finale of the now-defunct Buick Open in 2001.

Billy Mayfair limps into Silvis, Illinois for the John Deere Classic.

Mayfair has secured just two paychecks in 2013 and ranks 206th in the FedExCup standings. He must move inside the top 200 just to earn a spot in the four-tournament series to decide the final 25 TOUR cards for 2013-14. At this point, at top 125 finish seems a long shot at best.

Billy Mayfair heads to Memphis for the FedEx St. Jude Classic chasing his first paycheck of 2013.

Mayfair is playing with conditional status, and this is just his seventh start of the season. Perhaps seven will be his lucky number this week at TPC Southwind, as he’s twice finished seventh in this event. With over half the season in the books and no money in the bank, it appears he’s headed for a rocky landing at the end of 2013 without a quick jolt of success.

Billy Mayfair has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Mayfair started the week as the seventh alternate. He gained entry when Robert Garrigus withdrew today. In four starts on conditional status this season, Mayfair hasn't cashed or broken 70 in nine rounds. However, he shared eighth place in his last appearance at TPC Louisiana in 2011.

Playing with conditional status, Billy Mayfair will make his fourth start of the year at the Valero Texas Open.

The veteran has missed his first three starts of the year, even dropping down to play a Tour event two weeks ago and sharing 33rd in an effort to right the ship. He’s played all three installments of the tournament at TPC San Antonio, never missing a cut but never finishing better than T48. At worst, he could nab his first TOUR paycheck of the year this week.

Billy Mayfair was added to the field of 156 at this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Mayfair started the week as the fifth alternate. He gained entry when Bubba Watson withdrew this morning. Mayfair, who is making his 2013 debut, replaced the lefty on the 10th tee on the North Course at 9:30 a.m. PT.

Billy Mayfair is the bubble boy at 125th on the money list headed to the Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals Classic.

The veteran of 729 events avoided a trip to Q School last year with his tie for sixth in Disney last season. It won’t take something quite as dramatic this season, as a top 25 will likely be more than enough to do the trick. It could be easier said than done, given that his 17 paydays in 27 events have included just two top 25s and none since the RBC Heritage in April.

Billy Mayfair has long been a staple on the PGA TOUR, and to continue that presence he could use a good week at The McGladrey Classic.

Mayfair enters the week 125th on the money list, and is totally reliant on finishing inside the top 125 if he hopes to retain full status for 2013. He has already burned his only exemption via the career money list back in 2005. He eclipsed the $20 million mark in career earnings this year, placing him 38th in career money. He’s made the cut in both of his prior trips to Sea Island, with a T20 last year the best.
