Michael Letzig settled for an even-par 34-38=72 at Deerfield Golf Club in Madison, Mississippi, in today's open qualifier for the Sanderson Farms Championship, four swings too many to join the playoff for a berth into the tournament proper.
The former PGA TOUR member was bogey-free 3-under before walking off double bogey-bogey. He tied for 26th place. The 35-year-old placed seventh on the Order of Merit on the Mackenzie Tour in Canada this year, two places from automatically qualifying for Tour membership in 2016. He hasn't seen time in the big leagues since going 4-for-17 with no top 45s in 2013. Other notables who failed to qualify for the SFC today include: 70--James Driscoll; Tag Ridings; Kyle Thompson; Kevin Tway ... 71--Josh Teater; Craig Kanada; Brad Adamonis ... 72--Omar Uresti; Brad Elder; Jason Allred ... 73--Steve Allan ... 74--Frank Lickliter II; Edward Loar. Incidentally, Wade Binfield was the odd man out in the 3-for-2 playoff at Deerfield. While he's not a notable, it's noteworthy that his bogey-free, 34-34=68 included an ace at the par-3 third hole.

Michael Letzig makes his 15th start of the season at the RBC Canadian Open.

It's been a tough year for Letzig, making just four cuts with a T47 in New Orleans the best. If there is a sunny side, he's made his last two cuts. He's also had success at Glen Abbey, sharing eighth in 2009.

Michael Letzig has two top 25s in his previous three FedEx St. Jude Classic and is in the field this week.

Letzig missed the cut at TPC Southwind in 2011, but a T18 in 2008 and a T23 in '09 qualify him as a legitimate flier. Proceed with caution however, as he's made just two of nine cuts this season with a T47 in New Orleans the highlight.

Michael Letzig has been added to the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Letzig was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Fredrik Jacobson withdrew. Letzig tied for 47th at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. It's his best finish among just two cuts made in seven starts this season. He's 1-for-2 at Quail Hollow with a solo 79th/MDF in 2008.

Michael Letzig enters the Valero Texas Open struggling to find his game in 2013.

Letzig’s only payday was a T60 at the Farmers Insurance Open, sprinkling in a pair of missed cuts before and after that week. He was one of many struggling players to drop down and play the Chitimacha Louisiana Open on the Tour two weeks ago and tied for 33nd. He tied for 64th here in 2010.

Michael Letzig earned a shot at a second stint on the PGA TOUR through 2012 Q School but has missed both of his cuts ahead of the Farmers Insurance Open.

In what have proven to be events where the scores have been deep, Letzig has failed to shoot a sub-par round in five tries. In his two trips to Torrey Pines, his lone made cut resulted in a 77th with nothing better than a 71 on the card. He needs to prove he is worth the investment before you plug him into any fantasy lineups.

Michael Letzig shared medalist honors at today's four-spotter for The McGladrey Classic at Brunswick (GA) Country Club with a 4-under-par 32-34=66.

Letzig went from withdrawing from the after 32 holes to committing to this week's Miccosukee Championship on the Nationwide Tour to a spot in the 132-man field at Sea Island. He circled six birdies against two bogeys at Brunswick. Phillip Choi, who left the University of Florida after his sophomore season and turned pro this year, matched with a 4-under 33-33=66, also carding six birdies and two bogeys. Tom Murray (3-under 33-34=67; 4 birdies, 1 bogey) and Richard Scott (3-under 35-32=67; 6 birdies, 3 bogeys) survived a 3-for-2 playoff to qualify. Among the notables that failed include Gene Sauers (69), Lee Janzen (70), Leif Olson (70), Ty Tryon (71), Frank Lickliter II (72), Jerod Turner (72), Mathias Gronberg (72), Matthew Borchert (72), Russell Henley (72), Robert Gamez (73), Bob Estes (74), Tadd Fujikawa (74), Chris Smith (75), Aron Price (76) and Dru Love (78), son of Davis Love III.

Michael Letzig withdrew during his second round of the Open.

Letzig three-putted from 9'5" at the par-4 fifth hole for double bogey -- he missed a 14-inch bogey putt -- before play was suspended for darkness on Friday night. He didn't return this morning and didn't submit an explanation for his decision. He was 3-over through 14 holes in his second round and 6-over through 32 with an extremely slim chance to make the cut. If he's able, Letzig will compete in next week's Miccosukee Championship on the Nationwide Tour. He entered this week ranked 198th on the PGA TOUR money list and seems destined for a spot in the second stage of Q School.

Michael Letzig was added to the published field of this week's Open.

He was listed as the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon and gained entry this morning after a series of withdrawals. Finishing 150th on the money, as Letzig did in 2010, can be a crucible. For the majority of the first five months, guys at that level in the pecking order struggle getting into tournaments. Letzig was no different and the will be just his twelfth PGA TOUR event of 2011. He hasn't qualified since the Wyndham Championship where he missed the cut and ranks 198th in earnings.

Michael Letzig was added on Monday morning to the field of the Greenbrier Classic.

Letzig started the week as the second alternate into this week's field. So far this season, Letzig has one made cut in eight starts on the PGA TOUR.

Michael Letzig was added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Michael Letzig was added on Monday to the field of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Letzig started the week as the first alternate into the St. Jude field. He has played in four PGA TOUR events this season and he still is looking for his first paycheck.

Michael Letzig has been added to the published field of this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Letzig started the week as the eighth alternate, and gained entry when Peter Tomasulo withdrew. This will be Letzig's fourth start on the PGA TOUR this year; he's 0-for-3 thus far. He's partially exempt via the conditional status category for finishing 150th in earnings in 2010. However, Mike Weir and Brett Wetterich rank below him in the priority ranking after falling short of meeting the terms of their Major Medical Extensions but earning enough to qualify for conditional status. Even so, Weir and Wetterich both gained entry into the Nelson fields through other means, so Letzig is the last of his category to secure a tee time this week.

Michael Letzig crafted a 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the opening round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The third-year PGA TOUR member entered the week 148th on the money list, so he has to hustle to earn his card. This is the third straight week that he's gone low in the first round (65, McGladrey; 66,, but he's finished outside the top 50 in the previous two. He started today 6-under through seven after following four consecutive birdies with an eagle at the par-5 16th hole. After a dry spell, he finished birdie-eagle to join the co-leaders in the clubhouse. Letzig's longest conversions today came at the par-4 15th (22'6") and par-3 8th holes (24'10"). He also saved par from 11'11" at the par-4 10th to start his round.

Michael Letzig carded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Open.

Letzig hit 14 greens and needed just 27 putts at CordeValle today, finishing two back of the overnight lead. He dropped five birdies, including putts of 21'1", 18'0" and 27'2" at the 17th, 1st and 6th holes, respectively. He also holed out from 18 yards in a greenside bunker at the par-3 3rd.
