Mark Anderson settled for a 5-over-par 35-39=74 in today's final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.
He banked $14,271.00 and 1.5 FedExCup points, but he's probably just happy that the week is over. Anderson squared half of his 14 birdies at TPC Four Seasons on Sunday, including four consecutive to open his inward nine on the front side of the course. Now 2-for-4 on the season, he's down to three starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to find $562,932 or 368.652 FedExCup points and get promoted to the Major Medical category.

Mark Anderson completed 36 holes of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in 4-under-par 71-69=140, missing the cut on the number.

He totaled just 21 greens in regulation at TPC Louisiana this week, but limited the damage to three bogeys against seven birdies. All things considered, it was a good effort, especially when you factor in that this was just his third start of the season and first since missing the cut at the Farmers in early February. Nevertheless, Anderson now has four starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to bank $577,203 or 370.152 FedExCup points for a promotion to the Major Medical category.
Apr 25 - 12:01 PM

At 7-over-par 76-75=151, Mark Anderson will miss the cut at the Farmers Insurance Open.

Anderson split only 11 (of 28) fairways and hit 20 greens in regulation on the North and South Courses at Torrey Pines. All four of his birdies fell in on par 5s, but he countered with nine bogeys and a double. This ends his modest consecutive cuts made streak at four. It also leaves him with five starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle to collect $577,203 or 370.152 FedExCup points and secure a promotion to the Major Medical category.
Feb 6 - 7:17 PM

At 3-under-par 70-70-67-70=277, Mark Anderson finished in a nine-way share of 54th place at The McGladrey Classic.

All in all, this was an effective return. He recorded an ace on his third hole in the opening round and survived the 36-hole cut on the number. A four-birdie 67 on Saturday laid the foundation for an opportunity to take a big bite out of his medical extension in the reshuffle. Instead, Anderson dropped six spots on the leaderboard on Sunday and banked $12,544 and 13 FedExCup points. It leaves him with six starts to earn $577,203 or 370.152 FedExCup and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

In his first round in over five months, Mark Anderson shot an even-par 35-35=70 on Thursday at The McGladrey Classic.

Back from an injury to his right ankle due to a fall off a ladder, Anderson couldn't have asked for a more exciting day. After opening par-par, he holed his tee ball from 212 yards at the par-3 third. He'd go on to incur four bogeys in a six-hole stretch beginning at the par-4 eighth -- two were as a result of three-putts -- but birdies at 15 and 16 helped ease the sting and avert an over-par score. Overall, Anderson split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, fair numbers given his competitive layoff.

Mark Anderson has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

Anderson was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry following two withdrawals this morning. This will be his first start since the Byron Nelson in mid-May. He sat out thereafter due to an injured right ankle suffered during a fall off a ladder. As a result, he has seven starts on a medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $589,747 or 383.152 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Mark Anderson begins the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season with seven starts on a medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $589,747 or 383.152 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Anderson injured his right ankle when he fell off a ladder in May. He hasn't played since. He didn't make his 2013-14 debut until the Sony Open in Hawaii, and then opened the season 0-for-6. Buyer beware.

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.

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.

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.

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.
Mon, Apr 14, 2014 08:33:00 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.
