Jim Renner crafted a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, coming to rest three shots off the clubhouse lead.

Renner has missed 11 consecutive cuts. He opened every one of those short week with a score of par or worse, so he has reason to be optimistic about that slide ending at Harbour Town. Of course, it's only Thursday and he still needs to execute an efficient round on Friday. He'll be able to draw on watching his eagle fall in from inside nine feet at the par-5 second hole today. Renner added three birdies, including a 34-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 eighth and a conventional conversion from 12 feet at the par-4 12th. But if he regresses, you'll understand why. Neither of his paydays this season are top 60s. He's currently 237th in the FedExCup standings and the only outside the top 215 with more than nine starts.

Jim Renner looks to avoid his 10th straight cut missed as he prepares for this week's Valero Texas Open.

Things are looking down for Renner who is 2-for-13 overall on the season. He currently ranks 206th in strokes gained:total and that correlates pretty well with his FedExCup rank of 233rd. Gamers can steer very clear of Renner this week as his putrid form provides a natural defense.

Jim Renner returns to Riviera Country Club for the Northern Trust Open.

After beginning his week at the 2014 edition of this tournament with a 1-under-par 70, Renner withdrew before completing his second round. His second round was suspended due to darkness last year, and he failed to return to complete his last two holes since he had no chance of making the cut. At 213th in the current FedExCup standings, it's tough to get excited about his chances this week.

Jim Renner begins his week at the Humana Challenge having made just two of his six cuts to start the season.

Renner finds himself occupying the 204th spot in the FedExCup standings. His four missed cuts have only been interrupted by a T81 in The McGladrey Classic, which was ultimately a MDF, and a T61 in the Sanderson Farms Championship. He was 2-over-par through 36 holes in last week's Sony Open in Hawaii.
Jan 21 - 2:11 PM

Five starts into the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, Jim Renner is ranked a distant 194th in the FedExCup standings.

For those that follow Renner closely, this comes as no surprise. If you tossed out his T2 at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am last season, he wouldn't have come close to holding onto his PGA TOUR card. He missed 18 of his 25 cuts in 2013-14, so expect plenty of famine to go with the rare feast. He's made just two cuts in the 2014-15 season and has yet to crack the top 60.

Jim Renner spun a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, posting up just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Renner has fully exempt status via earnings, not FedExCup points where he ranked 147th in 2013-14. That's what a T2 at Pebble Beach can do for one's status. So, congrats if you were on board today because he's not likely to repeat it. Renner split 10 (of 14) fairways and totaled 17 greens in regulation. The stripe show yielded five birdies, including respective rolls of 15 feet and 19'1" at the sixth and 10th holes. Naturally, he bogeyed the only hole on which he didn't set up a birdie try (the par-4 second), but he signed his card leading the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green. At least check, that split measured 3.666.

Jim Renner fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Open.

Renner is fully exempt via earnings thanks to a huge payday at Pebble Beach, but with only six cuts made in 25 starts last season, he doesn't project to be a fantasy force moving forward. However, one day into 2014-15, there are no complaints. He went 6-for-7 in scrambling and circled four birdies, three of which ranging 11-13 feet. He signed his card sitting three strokes behind the clubhouse leader.

Jim Renner turns his attention to the Open for the 2014-15 kick-off extravaganza.

Renner missed the cut in 18 of 25 events last season but found a way into the top 125 of total earnings for exempt status thanks to a runner-up finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He finished last season ranked 168th in scoring average and 143rd in par breakers. Renner and his 17-for-48 career record can be left on fantasy benches for the time being.

Jim Renner secured fully exempt status on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR for finishing 118th on the money list with $763,978.

Renner placed a distant 147th in the FedExCup standings, so we won't see him again until October at the soonest, but he's a prime example of how one strong effort can translate into fully exempt status. His earnings for sharing second place at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am over six months ago valued at more than 76 percent of his total. He survived just six of 25 cuts and managed only two other top-65 finishes. The 30-year-old will be entering his third season on the PGA TOUR, but it will be his first north of the Tour reshuffle category.

Jim Renner returns to Greensboro, North Carolina, for this week's Wyndham Championship.

Renner enters the week ranked 143rd in the FedExCup standings, and will need a fantastic finale if he wants to find a spot in The Barclays field, next week. He is just 6-for-24 on the season, and is largely being anchored by his runner-up finish at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am early in the season. Even without a high finish this week, Renner could still earn full exemption for the 2014-15 season via the Top 125 on the Official Money List, where he currently ranks 113th.

Jim Renner turned in a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and is 7-under 203 with 18 to play.

Renner was on a wild ride around The Old White TPC, circling seven birdies while handing back two double bogeys and a bogey. Several of those birdies were of note, holing a 21'4" attempt on the par-3 eighth, an 11'6" bid on the ninth and a 26'6" bomb on the par-3 15th. As the distance of his birdies might suggest, he gained well over a stroke with the putter. Both of his double bogeys were a product of wayward drives.

Jim Renner followed his opening 65 at The Greenbrier Classic with an even-par 32-38=70 to post 5-under 135, three swings back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

While he didn't surrender any strokes in the aggregate today, contenders beat the field average with regularity. It's likely that today's scoring will land under par as it did on Thursday (69.987). Renner still found enjoyment in five birdies on the Fourth of July, including a 21'7" conversion at the par-4 second hole, but he had no choice but to pencil in three bogeys and a double as well.

Jim Renner spun a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic to settle one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Renner missed only two (of 14) fairways and two greens in regulation en route to matching his season low on the PGA TOUR. He opened his T2 at Pebble Beach with the same on the Shore Course at Monterey Peninsula Country Club. Today he erased a bogey-5 at the 14th hole, where he pulled his approach into the green, with six birdies. The set featured conventional conversions from 12'1" and 21'11" at Nos. 10 and 5, respectively, but he also holed out from the rough four yards away at 2. While 138th in the FedExCup standings, Renner ranks 109th in earnings, so he just might back-door a PGA TOUR card with cash if he doesn't qualify for the Playoffs.

Jim Renner missed the cut in The Greenbrier Classic in 2011, but returns to try and rectify that this week.

Despite a T2 in the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and a T24 at the Shell Houston Open, Renner's lack of consistency has him outside the current top 125 in the FedExCup standings at 138th. In fact, he's missed his last five cuts. While he could catch lighting in a bottle this week, similar to what Ted Potter Jr. did in his 2012 win, chances are he will miss the cut. It's probably best to invest elsewhere.
