Matteo Manassero hopes his third start at the Masters later this week will prove to be lucky.

The Italian missed the cut at Augusta National in 2013, but managed a T36 as an amateur in 2010. There is more than just a green jacket on the line for him this week. He is currently a non-member on the PGA TOUR but is a mere 49 FedExCup points shy of qualifying for Special Temporary Membership.
Apr 7 - 10:29 PM

Matteo Manassero settled for a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the Valpsar Championship, securing a share of eighth place at 2-under 282.

Manassero circled his only birdie of the day at the par-5 first, and then completed his round with two bogeys and 15 pars. This is the Italian's best finish in 27 start on the PGA TOUR. With today's top 10, he has earned the right to tee it up in the Valero Texas Open in two weeks if he so chooses. As of today, the "Agenda" on his website lists the Shell Houston Open and Masters as his next two scheduled starts. Meanwhile, with 72.50 non-member FedExCup points earned at Copperhead applied to his season total, he is just 49 FedExCup points short of qualifying for Special Temporary Membership. Of all non-members outside that bubble, he's the nearest.

Matteo Manassero turned in an even-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the Valspar Championship to remain at 3-under 210.

The Italian offset each of his two birdies with bogeys, gathering 14 pars in the process. His birdies came on the back-nine par 5s at the Copperhead Course, both falling from inside 10 feet. He is not a member of the PGA TOUR, but a top-10 finish on Sunday would get him into the next full-field PGA TOUR event if he so chooses.
Mar 15 - 6:03 PM

Matteo Manassero carded a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in his second round of the Valspar Championship to post 3-under 139 at the midpoint, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Just as he achieved on Thursday, the Italian split 11 (of 13) fairways again today, but he improved his number of chances to break par by three to 13. He did so on three occasions, including conversions of 16'9" and 11'2" at Nos. 16 and 2, respectively. Manassero added a zero-putt seven-yarder from the rough for a fourth birdie at 12. A double-bogey 5 at the 13th, where he rinsed his tee ball, and a bogey at the par-4 third stand in the way of the outright lead, but he's in terrific position to secure his first top 10 in a stroke-play start on the PGA TOUR if not victory.

Matteo Manassero crafted a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship.

Manassero split 11 (of 13) fairways but hit only 10 greens in regulation. He bogeyed twice after missing the GIR and added a three-putt bogey from just inside 45 feet at the par-4 10th hole. However, the Italian also converted five birdies to finish one stroke off the overnight quad-leaders. His set included a six-yard hole-out from the rough at No. 1 where he began his round. He also poured in a four-yarder from the fringe at 4. But Manassero saved the best for last at the last, drilling home a birdie-3 from 42'2".
Mar 13 - 7:31 PM

Matteo Manassero closes out his week at The Honda Classic with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 and ends the tournament at 4-under 267.

The Italian settled for pars on his first eight holes, then traded five birdies for two bogeys on his final 10 holes. After opening his tournament at PGA National with a 67, he posted a pair of 71s in the second and third rounds. Manassero is seemingly in good form as he now turns his attention towards the WGC-Cadillac Championship later this week.
Mar 2 - 1:51 PM

Matteo Manassero submitted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of The Honda Classic.

This was a bit of a strange round in that he hit only 11 greens in regulation but converted five birdies, the longest of which from just 10'2" at the par-4 13th hole. He also squared two bogeys, which is to be expected when any golfer is scrambling seven times in a single round, but his first was as a result of a miss from one foot at the par-3 15th, at least according to's ShotTracker software. Nevertheless, the aggregate result left him four strokes off the overnight lead.

Matteo Manassero swept past Luke Donald 5 and 4 in the Player Bracket in the first round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

Manassero was deadly today. He opened with a birdie-3 at the first hole and kept his foot on the 2011 champion's throat until Donald was forced to tap out on the 14th green. Overall, the Italian scored bogey-free 6-under-par. He won six holes to Donald's lone win (via a birdie-3 at No. 7). Manassero advanced to the second round for the third time in four appearances. His date on Thursday will be Jason Dufner.

Matteo Manassero squares off against Luke Donald in the opening round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

The Italian's record is headed in the wrong direction in this event, making the third round in his first start, then second in his second before losing out in round one a year ago. That matches his form entering this event. He managed a T10 at the Volvo Golf Champions before fading to a T31 in Abu Dhabi and missing the cut in the Omega Dubai Desert Classic. Manassero is the 12th seed in the Gary Player Bracket.
Feb 17 - 8:53 PM

Matteo Manassero sits seventh in the Race for Dubai and looks to improve upon that at the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

It's unclear if his sights are set on a permanent home on the PGA TOUR, but a big week at Sheshan International Golf Club could also bring that option into play. This is the first time the WGC-HSBC is considered an official PGA TOUR event. In his two previous appearances in this event, the Italian has failed to crack the top 50.

Matteo Manassero tied for 37th in the 2011 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational and is back again in 2013.

The Italian star managed to post a 3-under-par 67 in the third round at Firestone CC in 2011, but ended the week at 1-over 281. Victories at the Barclays Singapore Open in 2012 and the 2013 BMW PGA Championship were enough to land the invite this time around. He enters the week 27th in the world, but off a missed cut at Muirfield.

Matteo Manassero emerged with the victory at the BMW PGA Championship following a three-way playoff.

The 20-year-old Italian converted a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th hole the fourth time is was played during the playoff. Simon Khan rinsed his approach to open the door for Manassero's fourth career victory on the European Tour. Khan recorded a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 to join the playoff that also included Marc Warren (3-under 35-34=69). All three concluded regulation in 10-under 278. Warren was eliminated on the first extra hole after an unplayable lie and another penalty for finding water with his fourth. Manassero (3-under 32-37=69) and Khan went birdie-par-birdie until the clincher. Fifty-four leader Alejandro Cañizares (even-par 35-37=72) shared fourth place with fellow Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiménez (5-under 33-34=67) at 9-under 279. Manassero will climb inside the top 30 of the Official World Golf Ranking with the victory. It also exempts him into the U.S. Open although he would have qualified anyway via the OWGR.

Matteo Manassero concluded his week at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship with a brilliant 6-under-par 32-34=66, finishing the tournament at 5-under 283.

Manassero's round has a chance to stand as the round of the day, as the wind is kicking up and blowing from a different direction on TPC Blue Monster at Doral today. He was bogey-free, with eight birdies through his first 17 holes, but suffered a double-bogey six on the daunting 18th hole to conclude his round. He his his approach into the drink and failed to convert a six-foot bogey save.
