Shane Bertsch makes his way back to Hawaii for the 2014 Sony Open.
The former member of the PGA TOUR was granted a sponsor invitation into this year's tournament on the heels of his T13 last season. This will be his 10th appearance, and he has amassed a 69.53 scoring average in 30 rounds on the par-70 layout. Needless to say, this could be his only TOUR start this season, so he needs to make the most of it. Wed, Jan 8, 2014 08:09:00 PM

Shane Bertsch posted a 4-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round of the Sony Open.

He converted his sponsor exemption into the clubhouse at lead at 13-under 267. He was moving along at snail's pace for most of the round, but found an eagle from 32'6" on the par-5 18th after a birdie on the par-4 16th to end his round in style. With playing opportunities limited in 2013, he'll take any momentum he can muster.

Shane Bertsch got the third round of the Sony Open off and running with a 5-under-par 32-33=65, improving to 9-under 201 for the tournament.

It's not a complete surprise that the non-member has a good week in the works, as he owns three top 25s in this event including a tie for 13th in 2006. Starting on the back nine, he circled six birdies, with his lone bogey the result of a missed 4'5" attempt at a sand save on the first hole. He immediately bounced back from that blemish with a hole out from a greenside bunker on the par-4 second hole. He wrapped up his round with a two-putt birdie on the par-5 ninth hole.

Shane Bertsch was given one of the last four sponsor exemptions into this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. While he no longer has status on the PGA TOUR, Bertsch has supported this tournament over the year, compiling three top 25s among five paydays in eight appearances. The field for the tournament is now complete at 144.

Shane Bertsch has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

Bertsch was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry due to three withdrawals this morning. He missed the cut at last week's Open, his tenth in 15 starts this year. Bertsch tied for 48th in his only previous appearance at Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course a year ago.

Shane Bertsch tied for fourth in the 2011 Open, and he’s back for another crack at CordeValle Golf Club this week.

Bertsch is playing without full status, and has made just five of 14 cuts. It goes without saying that he could use another big week at CordeValle in a big way if he hope to not only avoid Q School all together, but finish inside the top 150 of the money list to earn an exemption into the final stage. He currently sits 213th on the money list.

Shane Bertsch has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Bertsch was the sixth alternate at the start of the week. He gained entry when four golfers withdrew this morning. He's coming off a T31 at the True South Classic, his best finish among four paydays in 11 starts this year. He's 213th in the FedExCup standings.

Shane Bertsch has been added to the published field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Bertsch was the seventh alternate at the start of the week. He gained entry thanks to two withdrawals today. Garrett Willis was the sixth alternate until successfully navigating Monday's four-spotter, so Bertsch got the call today. He could use the karma given he's cashed in just three of eight starts on the PGA TOUR this year and hasn't finished better than T49 (St. Jude).

Shane Bertsch was added to the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

Bertsch was the eighth alternate at the start of the week. He gained entry when Scott Stallings withdrew this morning and Garrett Willis wasn't on site as first alternate. Bertsch started his round on the 10th tee at 7:56 a.m. ET. He's a mere 3-for-7 on conditional status this year with no top 45s.

Shane Bertsch completed the 36-hole U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Woodmont Country Club in Rockville, Md. in 4-under-par 69-71=140, earning medalist honors and the one of seven berths into the major.

Bertsch circled just six birdies against only two bogeys to survive the test north of Washington, D.C. Michael Thompson was the runner-up at 2-under 74-68=142. Five golfers shared third place at 1-under 141, filling fill out the remaining exemptions: Nicholas Thompson (71-72); Darron Stiles (72-71); Paul Claxton (75-68); Jeff Curl (69-74); and Cole Howard (73-70). Notables that failed to advance from this site include: 145--Fred Funk; Adam Hadwin ... 146--Doug LaBelle II ... 148--Gary Christian; Aron Price ... 149--Sam Cyr ... 150--Kent Jones; Andrew McLardy ... WD--Cliff Kresge; Brent Delahoussaye; Drew Weaver.

Shane Bertsch will make his fifth start of the year at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, where he missed the cut in 2011.

Bertsch has found starts hard to come by, as he's playing with conditional status. His only made cut came at Pebble Beach. If there is a highlight to be found, he's split 64.03 percent of his fairways.
Tue, May 15, 2012 10:58:00 PM

Shane Bertsch has been removed from the published field of this week's Puerto Rico Open.

Bertsch has conditional status on the PGA TOUR so this is a mildly boggling decision especially since he's not scheduled to compete on the Nationwide Tour either. He's 1-for-3 this year with a T61 at Pebble Beach.

Shane Bertsch shot 1-over-par 72-69=141 at the Sony Open in Hawaii and will miss the cut.

Bertsch hit only 20 greens over 36 holes and still needed 57 putts. He offset seven birdies with eight bogeys. This was his last start on a medical extension in the reshuffle category. Therefore, since he finished 143rd on the money list in 2011, he'll tumble into the conditional status category for the remainder of this year. For the record, he fell short of meeting the terms of his medical by $241,285.

Shane Bertsch is listed in the published field of next week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

If he doesn't withdraw prior to his tee time, Bertsch will be making his final start on a Major Medical Extension in the reshuffle category. To meet its terms of $241,285 and earn a promotion to the MME category, he will need no worse than a two-way T4 worth $242,000. (A solo fifth would pay $220K of the $5.5 million purse.) Short of that and he'll fall into the conditional status category for the remainder of the year. He finished 143rd in earnings in 2011.

Shane Bertsch shot 3-over-par 76-71=147 at the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic and will miss the cut.

Bertsch hit only 24 greens and still needed 62 putts. Those totals just won't get the job done at the season finale. This leaves him with one start on his Major Medical Extension (reshuffle category) to earn $241,285 and get elevated to the MME category. While the medical will carry over into 2012, he'll likely secure conditional status at worst as he entered this week ranked 140th on the money list. Overall, the journeyman went 11-for-20 with two top 10s.
