James Nitties won the Midwest Classic in 2011 and is back to tackle Nicklaus GC at LionsGate.

Nitties bested Jonas Blixt and fellow Aussie Nick Flanagan by five strokes to pick up the title in the tournaments second edition. His 26-under 258 final tally stands as the tournament record and a lofty benchmark for the field to shoot for in 2013. In 13 starts this season, Nitties ranks 73rd on the money list with eight cuts secure. He's firmly on the bubble for a top-75 finish and a spot in the four-tournament series for a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.

He got another to fall from 18'9" at the 11th. And finally, one more from 43'9" at the 13th disappeared for birdie.

James Nitties has been added to the published field of the Memorial.

Nitties started the week as the first alternate, and gained entry when J.J. Henry withdrew this morning. The second-year touring pro from Australia has cashed in four straight starts, but has just one top 15 all year (T3, Puerto Rico). He missed in his debut at last year's Memorial.

James Nitties posted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 on the North Course at Torrey Pines in his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

Golfers have said for a long time that they can't win tournaments on Thursday, they can only lose them. Well, Nitties is this week's poster boy. He carded an 8-over 80 on the South Course on Thursday, all but foiling his plans for a paycheck this week. The Aussie missed the cut by four swings, but he heads to the Northern Trust Open on the heels of a great round.

James Nitties settled for a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the opening round of the Frys.com Open.

The rookie managed only 11 GIR and still required a whopping 29 putts, so it's a good thing that his 2010 PGA Tour card is secure. He was an early WD from the Timberlake due to a recurring sore neck, which might still be bothering him based on his score today.

James Nitties is listed in the published field of next week's Frys.com Open.

Nitties was a late scratch from the Timberlake on Wednesday night, but it wasn't revealed until Friday's Las Vegas Review-Journal that his neck was again to blame for his absence. Considering his reactive arthritis and recent history battling this ailment, he will remain a question mark for the Frys.com all the way up to his tee time.

James Nitties is listed in the published field of next week's U.S. Bank Championship in Milwaukee.

The Aussie was a late scratch at the John Deere due to a neck injury, causing him to also pull out of this coming Monday's Rockford (IL) Pro-Am. Frankly, that he's held up as well as he has in his rookie year with reactive arthritis is impressive. Just be cautious if you want to put him in play next week.
