Mark Anderson is planning on returning to competition in October.
Anderson responded to a question on Twitter about his playing status. His response: "ill [sic] be back playing in October. Can't get here soon enough." He hasn't pegged it for real since mid-May due to falling off a ladder. The assumption is that he'll receive a medical extension in the reshuffle category at best, but he may be slapped with a Minor Medical instead. We'll relay the terms when they're announced. After opening the 2013-14 season with five missed cuts, Anderson cashed in his last three and finished 212th in the FedExCup standings. Sep 2 - 3:22 AM

Mark Anderson has been removed from the published field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

He would have ended a six-week layoff due to a leg injury suffered while falling off a ladder. At this point, he might as well just sit out a full two months and qualify for a Minor Medical Extension in case he needs it for 2014-15. If he sits out the rest of the season and his application is approved, he could qualify for a medical in the reshuffle category. However, if he's healthy, then he might as well just give it a go and play into shape for the Tour Finals assuming he qualifies. Anderson is currently 204th in the FedExCup standings, so he'd need to put some points on the board to crack the top 200.

Mark Anderson is listed in the published field of next week's Greenbrier Classic.

Anderson has been sidelined with a leg injury since falling off a ladder just over a month ago. He'll have his work cut out if he's able to play full-time this summer. Buried in the Tour reshuffle category, he's made only eight starts and cashed just thrice. He's currently 204th in the FedExCup standings and 189th in earnings.

Mark Anderson has been removed from the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Anderson alerted his followers on Twitter on May 21 that he fell off a ladder. He then withdrew from the Rex Hospital Open on the Tour after an opening 73. This morning, he added on Twitter: "Having a cast on my leg reminds me of the summer in high school I had my car confiscated." That sounds like a great story, but this is bad news for his short-term usage in all fantasy formats. That said, he's currently 199th in FedExCup points with only one top-65 finish among three paydays in eight starts, so it's not like many of you will miss him for however long he needs to heal.

Mark Anderson will tee it up for the second time in the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

He missed the cut here in 2012, so expectations aren't the highest. That said, it was this week a year ago where he hoisted the hardware at the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Tour. Rather than defend, he will try and improve on his 197th ranking in the FedExCup standings.
May 12 - 9:28 PM

Mark Anderson settled for a 3-over-par 38-36=74 in the third round of the RBC Heritage.

On the bright side, Anderson is making the most of his sponsor exemption and is in line to receive his first pay check of the season after missing his first five cuts. Every shot will count for The Beaufort, South Carolina resident as he currently sits in 77th place with a 7-over 220 after 54 holes.
Apr 19 - 7:32 PM

Mark Anderson will compete in his fifth RBC Heritage this week on Hilton Head Island.

Anderson is a product of the University of South Carolina and makes his home on the South Carolina coast. This is his second full season on the PGA TOUR, but things aren't going particularly well. He has yet to make the cut in an event. This could be his week, as he tied for 13th in his last trip to Harbour Town in 2012.
Apr 14 - 8:33 PM

Mark Anderson has been added to the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

Anderson started the week as the eighth alternate before gaining entry today when Tim Herron withdrew. Anderson is 0-for-4 this season and sits at the bottom of the reshuffle among golfers no on medical extensions. In his only previous appearance at TPC San Antonio, he took solo 79th/MDF in 2012.
Mar 26 - 4:04 PM

Mark Anderson is struggling to pick up starts in the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, making just his second appearance of the season at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Anderson is a Tour graduate, finishing inside the top 25 of the regular season money list. Since he struggled in the Finals, his reshuffle number was very low out of the gates. Any cash he could make in his trip to Torrey Pines could go a long way towards future PGA TOUR starts and a higher reshuffle number. He tied for 64th at Torrey Pines in his only trip back in 2012.
Jan 21 - 8:17 PM

Mark Anderson easily secured his 2013-14 PGA TOUR during the Tour regular season, with a win and a runner-up finish, but a weak showing in the Finals cost him dearly in terms of early starts.

Anderson has yet to hear his name called for a tee time in the 2013-14 season, and the first reshuffle is already in the books. One trend to watch on Anderson, it took him until his second full season on the Tour to earn PGA TOUR status for 2012. That season wasn't all that bad as he finished 164th in the FedExCup standings and 155th on the money list, meaning a second full season on the PGA TOUR could result in a marked improvement. The biggest problem is that he needs some starts.

Mark Anderson captured his first Tour win at the BMW Charity Pro-Am with a final-round 6-under-par 32-33=65 at Thornblade Club, finishing five clear of Tom Hoge.

The University of South Carolina product circled seven birdies to a lone bogey in the final round and completed the tournament at 27-under 63-67-64-65=259. He finished the week sixth in driving distance and tied for ninth in GIR, finding the putting surface 60 (of 72) times in regulation. His 28 birdies led the field. He was a 2011 Tour graduate, but failed to maintain his status on the PGA TOUR. With this victory, he moves to ninth on the money list and stands an excellent chance at picking up a card for the 2013-14 season.

Mark Anderson pulled in front at the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Tour with a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round, boosting him to 21-under 194 and one clear of 36-hole leader Franklin Corpening.

Anderson was cruising along with three birdies and one bogey on his first 14 holes at Thornblade Club, then caught fire over the final four holes. He chipped in for eagle on the par-5 15th, and followed with a birdie on the par-5 16th. He then navigated the difficult final two holes with birdies to end his round. A native of South Carolina, he will try and pick up his first Tour victory in Sunday's final round.

Mark Anderson opened the Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am with a bogey-free, 32-31=63 at The Reserve at Lake Keowee, good for a share of the overnight lead in relation to par.

Anderson is back in the minors after a failed rookie season on the PGA TOUR in 2012. He's cashed in three of six starts on the Tour this year but hasn't recorded a top 30. Today he ripped off an eagle and seven birdies in addition to going 4-for-4 in scrambling.

Mark Anderson shares the lead at the Panama Claro Championship after firing a 6-under-par 29-35=64.

It shouldn't be a big surprise that Anderson finds himself in contention early, as this isn't the first time he's spun a 64 on Panama Golf Club. In 2010, a second-round 64 vaulted him to a T4 finish. He returned in 2011 and tied for 13th. In the eight rounds that consisted of those two tournaments, he was sub-70 in seven. Today's round consisted of eight birdies, including both of the par 5s, to just two bogeys.

Mark Anderson finished off his first career top 10 with a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, ending the week at 11-under 277.

The unfortunate news for the rookie is that, not only will he not finish the year inside the top 125 on the PGA TOUR, he looks one shot shy of the top 150 and will head to the second stage of PGA TOUR Q School next week. Switching to the belly putter this week, his 1.580 putting average was among the best in the field. If his momentum continues, and he earns a card via Q School, he could be a player to watch in 2013.
