Mark Anderson has again been removed from the published field of this week's Barbasol Championship.
Well, so much for that Cinderfella story to which we alluded last night. Anderson gained entry on merit after losing status, but he's going to stick with his commitment to the Web.com Tour's Stonebrae Classic. Jul 14 - 10:22 AM

Mark Anderson has regained entry into the inaugural Barbasol Championship.

Here's one you don't see very often, so play close attention because the following explanation is true. Anderson lost his PGA TOUR status when he exhausted the final start on his medical extension in the reshuffle category with a missed cut at the John Deere Classic. Yet, he qualified for the field at Grand National's Lake Course on merit. The 30-year-old finished 212th in the FedExCup standings in 2013-14 with 55 points. He collected 69 points this season on the medical, so they contribute to a whole of 124 FedExCup points (as if it were a single season). That total would have slotted him 188th in last season's standings. Since the Barbasol needed to dip into the 151-200 category, Anderson was waiting at no higher than 23rd alternate when 11 others withdrew and 12 alternates took a pass. This has the makings of a special story, but the reality is the he's 800th in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Mark Anderson has been removed from the published field of this week's Barbasol Championship.

Just a little housekeeping here. He lost his PGA TOUR status when he burned through the last start on a medical extension with a missed cut at the John Deere Classic, and he didn't receive a sponsor exemption to compete at Grand National this week.

Mark Anderson completed 36 holes of the John Deere Classic in 4-over-par 75-71=146, missing the cut by eight strokes.

In his final start on a medical extension, Anderson missed 14 greens in regulation at TPC Deere Run this week and erased five birdies with seven bogeys and a double. For the record, he fell $460,532 or 314.652 FedExCup points short of fulfilling the terms of his medical in the reshuffle category. He also came nowhere near securing conditional status, stopping 199.412 FedExCup points shy of that secondary goal. So, with no PGA TOUR status, he'll most likely be removed from the published field of next week's Barbasol Championship when it's updated on Monday. Look for him to establish a regular schedule on the Web.com Tour for the foreseeable future. He's currently 152nd on that circuit's money list, so there's work to do to qualify for the Web.com Tour Finals.

Mark Anderson submitted respective rounds of 70 and 71 at The Greenbrier Classic and missed the cut by three strokes.

He hit only 17 greens in regulation at The Old White TPC this week, so he did well to limit the hemorrhaging to six bogeys, but the 30-year-old managed only five birdies. It's his third missed cut in six starts this season. More importantly, he'll head to the John Deere Classic with only one start remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $460,532 or 314.652 FedExCup points for a promotion to the Major Medical category. Short of that, Anderson would secure conditional status for the remainder of the season if he collects 199.412 FedExCup points. If he fails at that secondary objective, he'll lose his status on the PGA TOUR.

At 9-under-par 67-71-65-68=271, Mark Anderson finished in a five-way tie for 15th place at the Travelers Championship.

Anderson traded four birdies with two bogeys in today's finale at TPC River Highlands. The week-long consistency yielded $102,400.00 and 54 FedExCup points for what is his best finish on the PGA TOUR since he concluded the 2012 season with a T9 at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic. Despite the windfall, he has just two starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to bank $460,532 or 314.652 FedExCup points for a promotion to the Major Medical category. The 29-year-old will attempt to tackle The Old White TPC this week where he missed the cut in his only previous appearance in 2012.

Mark Anderson crafted a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in today's third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole aggregate of 7-under 203, currently T18 on the live leaderboard.

Anderson began the day at 2-under (T59), having made the cut on the number with rounds of 67-71. The 29-year-old smothered one bogey with six birdies, including three straight on Nos. 1-3 to begin his round. Beginning at the fourth, he exchanged one birdie with one bogey over his next eight holes, adding his last two par breakers on the par-4 12th and 17th respectively. Anderson, currently No. 1,128 in the Official World Golf Ranking, is making just the fifth start of his 2014-15 campaign, registering a season-best T54 at The McGladrey Classic back in October. At the conclusion of this week's Travelers, he'll have two starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category.
Jun 27 - 2:15 PM

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.
May 31 - 6:52 PM

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.
