Marc Turnesa settled for an even-par 36-36=72 at Lake Caroline Golf Club in Madison, Mississippi, in today's open qualifier for the Sanderson Farms Championship, seven strokes too many to join the playoff for the final berth into the tournament proper.
It was in the 2008 edition of the SFC at Annandale Golf Club that Turnesa lost in a playoff just one month before securing his only PGA TOUR victory (in Vegas). He counterbalanced six birdies with two bogeys and two doubles today. Other notables that failed to qualify for the first opposite event of the season include: 65--Len Mattiace; Steve Marino; Brad Elder; Shane Bertsch (all were eliminated in an 8-for-1 playoff) ... 67--Frank Lickliter II; Casey Wittenberg; Brad Adamonis; Gavin Coles; Wes Roach ... 68--Patrick Sheehan; Kyle Thompson ... 69--Todd Hamilton; Omar Uresti; Ben Kohles ... 70--Kent Jones; Arjun Atwal; Steve Allan ... 71--Danny Ellis ... 72--Justin Bolli ... 75--Edward Loar.

Turnesa was the seventh alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was the last alternate to gain entry following the first wave of withdrawals. The one-time PGA TOUR champ has cashed in his last two starts, but hasn't wrangled a top 45 since a T31 at the 2012 Barracuda. He has not played the Tour all season.

Turnesa was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was one of many to gain entry in today's first wave of changes. He's survived one of three cuts this season (T53, Shriners) and has elected not to ply his draft on the Tour. He's 0-for-3 at TPC Deere Run.

Marc Turnesa won the 2008 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and returns to TPC Summerlin this week for his fifth edition.

Turnesa now only possesses Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR, so it is imperative that the make the most of this rare start. He's shown up three times between the Tour and the PGA TOUR in 2013, making the cut in both PGA TOUR events but not finishing any better than a T56 at the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Marc Turnesa gathered 12 points during his third round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Beginning the week as an alternate, he circled six birdies without a blemish on his tour of Montreux GC and enters the final round with 21 points. This is only his second PGA TOUR start of the year, sharing 65 at the Sanderson Farms Championship opposite The Open Championship. He likely needs at least a top five to even crack the top 200 of the FedExCup standings to earn an invite to the four-tournament playoff for a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.

Marc Turnesa turned in a 5-under-par 37-30=67 at the Bayonet Course at Bayonet and Black Horse in Seaside, Calif. in today's open qualifier for the Open to earn a spot in the tournament proper.

The one-time PGA TOUR winner opened with a birdie at the par-5 10th hole but finished his first nine in birdie-free 2-over. He then flipped on the jets for six birdies on his inward side. Turnesa shared medalist honors with Veteran Member Craig Barlow, who signed for a 5-under 35-32=67. Barlow circled eight birdies to offset one bogey and a double. Derek Ernst erased two bogeys with six birdies to finish alone in third place at 4-under 32-36=68. The final of four berths required a 6-way playoff from which Matt Marshall (33-36=69; five birdies, one bogey) survived. The field for the Open is now complete at 132.

Marc Turnesa is listed in the published field of next week's Reno-Tahoe Open.

We still don't know why he called it quits during his second round of last week's True South Classic. He rose as high as fifth alternate for the RBC Canadian Open, but settles for a spot at Montreux next week where he'll be looking to end an 0-for-5 slide.

Marc Turnesa withdrew during his second round of the True South Classic.

Turnesa teed off on the par-4 first hole and then walked off. It was his 10th of the second round. He was 2-over for the round and 4-over for the tournament at the time. If an explanation is released for his decision, we will relay it to you. It drops him to 3-for-8 on the year.

Marc Turnesa was the last man to sneak into the HP Byron Nelson field at the commitment deadline and will look to make the best of his opportunity this week.

Turnesa has found starts hard to come by playing out of the Past Champion category, but he's done a decent job of making the most of them. He's cashed in three of his four attempts, with a T16 at Mayakoba as the highlight. He'd rank first in Strokes Gained-Putting at 2.302 if he had enough rounds in the books to qualify.

Marc Turnesa crafted a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

Making his first start since getting demoted to the Past Champion category, Turnesa was impressive today. He hit 14 greens, rolled in four birdies and got up and down for par four times. He took 29 putts. Unless he wins, his fantasy value is limited to opposite events, and only in the deepest of formats.

Marc Turnesa has been removed from the published field of this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

As we relayed on Sunday night, Turnesa lost his status after failing to meet the terms of his medical extension. He shot a 2-over-par 74 at the Monday qualifer for the WMPO, seven strokes too high to join this morning's four-man playoff that will decide the final man in the field of 132 at TPC Scottsdale. He will play out of the Past Champion category for the remainder of the year.
