Alex Prugh makes third career start at Valero Texas Open.
As a Tour grad, Prugh regained his PGA TOUR card for 2015; an accomplishment he hasn't enjoyed since 2011. The University of Washington product began his career with four top 10s, all in 2010 and all on the West Coast. True to form, he added two more West Coast top 10s earlier this year with a T5 at the Farmers and a T10 at Pebble Beach. Has gone 2-for-4 since, including an uninspiring T62 last week at Bay Hill. Two previous visits to San Antonio resulted in a missed cut in 2011 and a T72/MDF last year. Mar 24 - 11:55 AM

Alex Prugh has gained entry into this week's Honda Classic.

Prugh vaulted 25 spots to ninth in the Tour graduate category when it reshuffled at the conclusion of the West Coast Swing. He put himself in a position to make noise with a T5 at the Farmers, but sealed it with a T10 at Pebble Beach. He cashed in both of his previous appearances at PGA National, but hasn't competed since 2011 (T58).

Alex Prugh will return to Riviera Country Club on Saturday morning to complete his second round of the Northern Trust Open.

Prugh was the only golfer that couldn't get his full round in before darkness blanketed the course. He was coughing up strokes coming home, too, so it's understandable why he wants a sunlit look over a birdie putt from 47'9" at the par-4 ninth hole at 7:00 a.m. tomorrow. After opening in bogey-free 3-under through 10 holes, he bogeyed Nos. 2, 3, 4 and 6. Prugh is 1-over on the round but even through 35, so he'll make the cut. The second round is scheduled to begin at 7:45 a.m. with threesomes off split tees.

Alex Prugh will compete in this week's Northern Trust Open.

Prugh is one of three to gain entry on his top 10 at Pebble Beach on Sunday. In his last two starts, Prugh has finished a respective T5 and T10 with all eight rounds under par. He's 1-for-2 at Riviera Country Club with a T10 in 2010, but hasn't played in the NTO since 2011. Consider him a nice find in DFS and formats that use the Official World Golf Ranking to segregate groups.
Feb 16 - 11:21 AM

Alex Prugh completed 72 holes of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am in 15-under 272 and will finish inside the top 10.

Prugh's second of two laps around Pebble Beach Golf Links went in the books as a 3-under-par 32-37=69 today. He opened with a birdie from 12'11" at the par-4 first hole and added five more, including a gem from just inside 20 feet at the par-4 10th. Three inward bogeys tainted the day, but he walked off with a birdie at the par-5 18th to sign his card with the confidence that he'll be exempt into this week's Northern Trust Open via the top 10. Prior to the success, he would have sat no worse than 18th alternate. In fact, it's Prugh's second consecutive top 10. We saw him enjoy a similar flourish on the West Coast back in 2010 where he placed T10 at Riviera, so don't rule him out for another big week.

Alex Prugh signed for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am to reach the 54-hole mark at 12-under 203.

Prugh was likely expecting a bit more out of his trip to Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course than a trio of birdies and one bogey, but so it goes. The good news is that he finds himself hanging on to a spot inside of the top 10. The bad news is that he is six off Jim Furyk's lead with 18 to play.
Feb 14 - 6:54 PM

Alex Prugh added a 4-under-par 36-32=68 at the host course in his second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Prugh opened double bogey-bogey at the 10th and 11th hole today, but he righted the ship to play the remainder in bogey-free 7-under with seven birdies. Three of his conversions measured 10-13 feet. Through 36 holes, he's missed only five greens in regulation, and at 10-under 134, Prugh is just two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He'll take his one shot at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course on Saturday.
Feb 13 - 5:32 PM

Alex Prugh extended his strong play with a 6-under-par 32-34=66 at Spyglass Hill in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Prugh has played well before on the West Coast, but that was in 2010. Fresh off a T7 at the Farmers, today's score was lowest among all 52 golfers that played Spyglass Hill. He missed only one green in regulation and converted eight birdies. The only negative is that he actually squared two bogeys despite the precision on approach. He signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead and in the driver's seat entering the second round at Pebble Beach. Spyglass Hill is often the hardest course of the three in play, so he'll be motivated to take advantage of the opportunity he created today.
Feb 12 - 7:04 PM

Alex Prugh conjured up a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Farmers Insurance Open to earn a top-five finish at 8-under 280.

Prugh circled three birdies and squared just two bogey on his lap around Torrey Pines South. His 13'2" birdie on the par-5 sixth hole stood as the highlight. He had a chance to join the lead back at 9-under with an 11'1" birdie bid on the par-5 18th, but left it short in the jaws. This goes on the books as just his fifth top-10 finish on the PGA TOUR.
Feb 8 - 5:56 PM

Alex Prugh crafted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open to establish an early clubhouse lead at 7-under 209.

Prugh picked up five birdies to just two bogeys on his navigation of Torrey Pines South Course on Saturday. Four of his birdies fell from longer than 10 feet, and two of those stood out as highlights. He holed a 37'10" birdie putt on the par-4 seventh and chipped in for birdie from 36 yards on the par-4 15th. He entered this week tied for 169th in the FedExCup standings, so this performance should go a long way towards improving his place in that ranking.
Feb 7 - 3:56 PM

Alex Prugh finished in a share of fifth place at the 2010 Farmers Insurance Open and makes his way back for another look this week.

Prugh has returned to Torrey Pines twice since the top-five finish, but fell outside the top 70 on both occasions. He enters this week with 44 FedExCup points to his name, ranking 169th in the standings. Given his form and lack of repetition, gamers can safely assume the T5 finish in 2010 was just an anomaly.
Feb 4 - 9:20 AM

Alex Prugh has made two of his four cuts to kick off the early potion of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

His best finish was a T35 in the Sanderson Farms Championship, and he sits 144th in the FedExCup standings. He is a veteran of 78 PGA TOUR starts over the years, with eight of those going for top 25s and four resulting in top 10s. His best finish was a runner-up in the 2010 Open.

Alex Prugh carded a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Despite just one payday in two starts (T49, Shriners) to begin the season, Prugh can already expect a busier schedule than what he endured in 2013-14 when he opened the season 0-for-6. If today's effort is any indication, we may be hearing more about him, too. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation at the Country Club of Jackson, circling five birdies along the way, none of them consecutively. Prugh's lone blemish occurred at the par-3 fourth hole, which he bogeyed. He's three shots off the clubhouse lead.

Alex Prugh has been added to the published field of this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

He was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry when Scott Langley withdrew. Prugh found his way into last week's, also as an alternate, but withdrew prior to the tournament. It's unknown as to why he turned down a spot in the season opener, but it rose a flag for gamers that invested in the 30-year-old. You have reason to be hold your breath this week.

Alex Prugh has been removed from the published field of this week's Open.

He was the second alternate when the field was released and gained entry on Monday. He went 4-for-4 during the Tour Finals, closing with three top 25s, so today's decision is a curious one.
