Jim Renner fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Frys.com 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. Oct 9 - 6:01 PM

Jim Renner turns his attention to the Frys.com 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 Web.com 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.
Jul 5 - 5:02 PM

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.
Jul 4 - 12:36 PM

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.
Jul 3 - 4:56 PM

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.

At 2-under-par 71-68=139, Jim Renner finished alone in third place to secure one of four berths up for grabs at today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Purchase, New York.

The PGA TOUR member holed an eagle and four birdies to offset four bogeys at the tandem host of Old Oaks Country Club (par 70) and Century Country Club (par 71). Medalist honors were shared by Rob Oppenheim (3-under 64-74=138) and former PGA TOUR member Fran Quinn (3-under 69-69=138). Matt Dobyns, who won the 2012 PGA Professional National Championship, locked up the final berth at even-par 70-71=141. Of this foursome, only Quinn has competed in a U.S. Open, doing so three times, but not since 1996. Notables that failed to qualify at this site include: 142--Jamie Lovemark ... 143--Lee Janzen; Alexandre Rocha ... 147--Kevin Foley; Jon Curran ... 150--Bill Britton ... 153--Geoffrey Sisk ... 154--Jim Herman.

Jim Renner returns to Quail Hollow for the first time since 2011 for the Wells Fargo Championship.

Renner has had a wild 2013-14 season, cashing in just three of his 13 starts but scoring a T2 at Pebble Beach when he caught lightening in a bottle. His first trip to Charlotte, North Carolina resulted in a missed cut, but also offered a massive improvement from one round to the next. He posted a first-round 80 before bouncing back with a 70. Anyone for a 60 this week?

Jim Renner chased his opening 66 at the Shell Houston Open with an even-par 35-37=72.

He posted 6-under 138 and sits six strokes off the pace of Sergio Garcia's clubhouse lead. Renner missed seven greens in regulation today en route to three bogeys. He offset with three birdies, the longest from 19'1" at the par-4 10th where he opened. While he didn't put any pressure on the lead, it'll be just his second payday in 11 starts on the season.
Apr 4 - 3:23 PM

Jim Renner put up a 6-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing just one stroke back of the overnight co-leaders.

Renner is just 1-for-10 on the season, but sits 96th in FedExCup points because the lone payday was a co-runner-up at Pebble Beach. Today's effort goes in the books as just his seventh red number in 22 rounds this season. He hit 14 greens in regulation and erased one bogey with seven birdies, two of which finding the cup from outside 10 feet. The highlight measured 30'9" at the par-4 sixth hole.
Apr 3 - 7:54 PM

Jim Renner fashioned a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

This was boring golf. Renner split half of the 14 fairways, but stood over 14 opportunities to break par. He converted three times to help offset a bogey-6 at the second hole, none of his conversions measured longer than his successful par attempt from 6'10" at the par-5 eighth. He signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Mar 27 - 8:50 PM

Jim Renner has regained entry into this week's Valspar Championship.

He was the first alternate when the top 10s in Puerto Rico were added this morning, but he's now for good now following a pair of withdrawals. Renner is just 1-for-7 on the season, but that was a co-runner-up at Pebble Beach. He's 74th in FedExCup points. This is his second look at Copperhead (MC, 2008).
Mar 10 - 2:16 PM

Jim Renner has been bumped to first alternate for this week's Valspar Championship.

Five golfers at the Puerto Rico Open not already exempt posted top 10s at the Valspar Championship. Renner took the week off, so his number was in jeopardy. Only one other has withdrawn thus far, so he'll sit outside the bubble for now.
