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.

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.

Mark Anderson was the sixth to earn a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic at 9-under-par 68-67=135.

The rookie started the week ranked a season-worst 170th on the money list. He sat as high as 109th following a T13 at the RBC Heritage in mid-April. Thus far as Disney, he's dialed in tee to cup, hitting 20 (of 28) fairways, 30 greens in regulation and taking just 57 putts. At the time he signed his card following today's round at Magnolia, he also sat inside the top 10 in distance off the tee at 297.8 yards. Anderson has rolled in 12 birdies, seven of which in his second round. The set included conversions from 11'5", 15'9" and 10'4" at the second, fourth and 15th holes, respectively.

Mark Anderson turned in an even-par 34-36=70 for his second round of The McGladrey Classic despite a case of food poisoning.

Anderson was originally listed as an early withdrawal this morning, but he gutted it out at Seaside, offsetting three bogeys with three birdies. Before he teed off, he received an IV, and then split three (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. He's 170th on the money list, so if he makes the cut, today's effort may have tremendous circumstance. Alas, he reached the midpoint in 1-under 139, which is unlikely to be low enough to advance to the weekend. UPDATE: The cut line, indeed, fell at 1-under 139, so Anderson will play on. However, a second cut of top 70 and ties will fall after 54 holes since greater than 78 golfers survived today's cut.

Mark Anderson is set to play in his first Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and he enters the week in danger of a return trip to Q School.

The rookie had things going for a while, notching eight cuts in-a-row from the last week in January to the final week of April. Since then, he’s made just two of 12 cuts, with the best a T64 at the True South Classic. He hopped down to the Tour last week, where he tied for 38th at the Chiquita Classic in North Carolina. Everything has turned into a problem for him, as he ranks 125th in Strokes Gained-Putting, 182nd in driving accuracy and 153rd in greens in regulation. At 166th on the money list, every opportunity is precious at this point in the season.

Mark Anderson has been added to the published field of this week's AT&T National.

Anderson was the third alternate at the start of the week. He gained entry when Matt Every withdrew today. The rookie has cashed in eight of 14 starts this year but he's missed five consecutive cuts by an aggregate 22 strokes. This include last week's Travelers Championship where he fell short of a payday by five shots.

Mark Anderson will play the Travelers Championship having missed his last four cuts leading up to this week.

Anderson was in the midst of a solid rookie season, seeing the weekend in eight of his first nine tournaments. Since then, he's dropped into the first real dry spell of his rookie campaign. He ranks 133rd in GIR and 55th in Strokes Gained-Putting. If he can get hot with the irons this week, he has a chance to get his season back on track.

Mark Anderson signed for a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the RBC Heritage for what will be his second top-25 finish of 2012.

The rookie, and South Carolina native, finished the week at 3-under-par 281 and tied for 13th. His final round saw him circle five birdies to just two bogeys, and he boasted a solid 1.675 putting average for the week. His previous best finish on the PGA TOUR was a T16 at this year's Mayakoba Golf Classic, so. He is scheduled to travel to San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open.
