Alex Prugh carded a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
At 128th in the FedExCup standings, Prugh knows that he's headed for conditional status if he doesn't get his act in gear. He sat as high as 62nd at the conclusion of the West Coast Swing, but has failed to record a top 25 since. Today at Glen Abbey, he landed 14 greens in regulation and poured in six birdies, including conversions from 18'2" and 11'8" at the par-4 10th and 11th holes, respectively. His only hiccup occurred at the par-4 sixth where he failed to get up and down for par and squared a 5. Jul 23 - 12:56 PM

Alex Prugh readies for his third visit to the Quad Cities at this week's John Deere Classic.

Prugh has missed his last two and three of his last four cuts, cashing a T40 in-between at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. In total, he's 10-for-21 on the season with two top 25s --doubling as top 10s-- a season-best T5 at the Farmers Insurance Open and a T10 the following week at the Farmers Insurance Open. His T5 at the FIO was his first top-10 finish on TOUR since the 2010 Open. Prugh, three times a Tour grad, including 2014, has had some success at the TPC Deere Run, cashing twice in two starts: T37/2014, T45/2011. The 30-year-old ranks a lofty 17th on TOUR in greens in regulation but 127th in strokes gained: total, including 127th in strokes gained: putting.
Jul 7 - 9:29 PM

Alex Prugh enjoyed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Since another strong West Coast Swing, Prugh has been silent and has drifted to 129th in the FedExCup standings after sitting inside the top 60 four months ago. So, today's success is what the doctor ordered. He piped 12 (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-5 in scrambling with four birdies on his card. The most notable ran 14'7" and 15 feet at the par-4 sixth and ninth holes, respectively. He signed his card parked just two strokes back of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

Alex Prugh returns to this week's Wells Fargo Championship after a three-year recess and enters 114th in the FedExCup standings.

Prugh suffers from an 'outside-of-California' affliction. The Tour grad has six-career top 10s (in just 89 career PGA TOUR starts), but they've all taken place on the West Coast, including a T5 at the Farmers Insurance Open followed by a T10 at the AT&T Pebble Beach back in February. After tossing in a T30 at the Northern Trust, he had vaulted to No. 267 in the Official World Golf Ranking (up from No. 447 to begin the year) but true-to-form, the TOUR moved East and he's gone 2-for-6 since, cracking the top 50 just once (T42, Shell Houston Open). Two previous visits to Quail Hollow resulted in a missed cut in 2010 and a T59 in 2011.
May 13 - 12:51 PM

Alex Prugh backed up his opening 67 at the Shell Houston Open with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to post 8-under 136 at the break, one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He wasn't bogey-free again today, but he hit one more green in regulation (15) and matched with five birdies. The set included conversions from 20 feet, 18'9" and 23'1" at Nos. 10, 13, and 5, respectively. Alas, Prugh squared two bogeys but he's positioned nicely for a run at his first PGA TOUR title. This is his 87th start as a professional.
Apr 3 - 3:07 PM

Alex Prugh registered a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Playing in the penultimate threesome off the first tee at the Golf Club of Houston today, Prugh split nine (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-14 in scoring opportunities. His birdies included a hole-out from the rough 13 yards away at the par-3 ninth hole and conventional conversions from 19'11" and 15'2" at Nos. 10 and 15, respectively. He was the last of 14 golfers to finish the day inside the top 10 on the leaderboard. This isn't the first time that the 30-year-old has taken it deep on this track. He carded a second-round 66 en route to a T22 in 2010. Today's was much-needed, too, as Prugh has done dry since the conclusion of the West Coast Swing. His only payday in four starts since is a T62 at Bay Hill.
Apr 2 - 8:02 PM

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).
Feb 23 - 10:52 AM

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.
Feb 20 - 9:28 PM

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.
Feb 15 - 5:48 PM

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.
