Alex Prugh was the last man eliminated in a 5-for-2 playoff at the open qualifier for this week's Shell Houston Open at Cypresswood Golf Club's Tradition Course in Spring, Texas, on Monday.
Prugh shot 6-under-par 33-33=66 with nine birdies and three bogeys. However, he failed to convert a 16-footer for birdie on the par-5 18th in the playoff on Tuesday morning during which Ted Purdy was the second to survive. Prugh is just 1-for-7 on the season with a T72/MDF at the Valero Texas Open. It will barely register when the Tour category reshuffles following the SHO. Other notables that failed to qualify at the OQ include: 66--Will Strickler (also lost in playoff) ... 68--Kevin Tway; Robert Streb; Chad Campbell ... 69--Tim Petrovic; Wes Short, Jr. ... 70--Frank Lickliter II; Guy Boros ... 71--Andrew; Svoboda; Lee Williams; Troy Merritt; Billy Mayfair ... 72--Peter Malnati; Wes Roach; Kevin Foley ... 73--Daniel Chopra; Eric Axley; Glen Day; Rod Pampling ... 74--Justin Bolli ... 75--Bronson La'Cassie ... 77--Troy Matteson ... 79--Edward Loar; Cameron Beckman ... 81--Arjun Atwal.

Alex Prugh suffered a 5-over-par 40-37=77 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to miss the 54-hole cut on the number at 5-over 221.

Joining Prugh on the sidelines for the finale are Robert Streb (221), Charlie Wi (221), Stuart Appleby (221), Jim Herman (222), Camilo Villegas (224), Tyrone Van Aswegen (224), Branden Grace (227) and John Merrick (227). That leaves 71 players with final-round tee times at TPC San Antonio.

Alex Prugh reached the break of the Valero Texas Open in even-par 71-73=144.

So what, you say? Well, it's his first payday in seven starts this season and his first in 10 events dating back to his sophomore season of 2011. With the third reshuffle of 2013-14 to occur after next week's Shell Houston Open where he's approximately 25th alternate, the timing of today's effort could prove to be invaluable.

Alex Prugh has been added to the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

Prugh was the seventh alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Mark Calcavecchia withdrew. Prugh arrives at TPC San Antonio without a cut made in six starts this season. He's also 0-for-1 on this week's host track. While he's near the bottom of the Tour reshuffle category, the next reshuffle will occur after next week's stop in Houston, so he could do himself a huge favor and put some numbers on the board immediately.

Alex Prugh signed for a 2-over-par 35-39=74 at Southern Hills Plantation Club in Brooksville, Fla., in today's open qualifier for the Valspar Championship, seven strokes too many to join the playoff for the final two berths into the tournament proper.

Prugh is straight strugglin'. He's 0-for-6 on the season and likely won't play again on the PGA TOUR until the Valero Texas Open in two weeks. He converted an eagle and four birdies today, but wiped them off with four bogeys and two doubles. Other notables that failed to qualify include: 68--Tyrone Van Aswegen; Troy Merritt; Patrick Sheehan ... 69--Jamie Lovemark; Lee Williams; Bronson La'Cassie; Glen Day; Mark McCumber; David Branshaw; Fran Quinn ... 70--Jim Herman; Alex Aragon ... 71--Peter Malnati; Kevin Tway; Kevin Foley; Robert Streb; Lee Janzen; Garrett Willis; Michael Letzig; Will Strickler ... 72--Heath Slocum; Andrew Loupe; Bobby Gates; Daniel Chopra; Tag Ridings; Craig Kanada ... 73--Andrew Svoboda; Marc Turnesa; Nick O'Hern ... 74--Brad Fritsch; Will Wilcox; Frank Lickliter II; Greg Kraft; Scott Hend ... 75--Scott Gardiner; Miguel Angel Carballo; Edward Loar; Chris DiMarco; Ryuji Imada ... 76--Robert Gamez.

Alex Prugh was a PGA TOUR regular in 2010 and 2011 before losing his playing privileges, but is back for a third lap after five top 10s on the 2013 Tour led to a top-25 finish on the regular-season money list.

Prugh isn't exactly off to a flying start, missing cuts in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. In 2010, when he retained his TOUR card as a rookie by finishing 70th in earnings, he did plenty of damage on the West Coast Swing. A native of Washington state and a resident of Nevada, all four of his top 10s that season came in either California of Nevada.

Alex Prugh has been added to the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Prugh started the week as the fifth alternate. He gained entry today when Daniel Chopra withdrew to honor his commitment on the Asian Tour. Prugh hasn't played El Camaleón in competition, but he'll have to figure it out quickly since he's 0-for-1 on the season and stands to remain buried in the graduate reshuffle unless he cashes.

Alex Prugh will kick off his PGA TOUR season at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Prugh begins the season 40th in the Tour Finals reshuffle, and in the field on a sponsor exemption. He played at TPC Summerlin in 2010 and 2011, making the cut both times. His best round was a second-round 64 in 2010.

Alex Prugh signed for a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Price Cutter Charity Championship to take a two-stroke lead into the final round at 16-under 200.

Prugh opened with a birdie on the par-5 first hole before handing it right back with a bogey at the second. That would be his only blemish, as he would tack on birdies at the third, eighth, 11th and 17th. He only hit half his fairways, but still managed to land 15 GIR. He also leads the tournament in putting through 54 holes with a 1.591 average. He has a quartet of chasers two back, so he can't rest on his laurels in the finale at Highland Springs Country Club.

Alex Prugh spun a bogey-free 9-under-par 31-32-63 in the second round of the Price Cutter Charity Championship to share the 36-hole lead at 12-under 132.

The second round wasn't able to be completed until Saturday morning due to a length weather delay on Thursday. It didn't bother Prugh. He circled seven birdies and an eagle after beginning the day on the 10th hole. He chases his second Tour title alongside Miguel Angel Carballo and Hunter Haas.

Alex Prugh fired an 8-under-par 32-31=63 in the opening round of the Air Capital Classic to take a two-stroke lead over Mike Lavery.

Prugh's round at Crestview CC was blemish-free, featuring six birdies and climaxing with an eagle on the par-5 18th to end the round. He landed 14 GIR despite finding just eight (of 14) fairways. His current form suggested that a round like this could rear its head. He's finished T23, T2 and T6 in his last three Tour outings.

Alex Prugh spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open at the North Course of Torrey Pines.

The second-year PGA TOUR member disappointed many a fantasy owner at last week's Bob Hope Classic, where he missed the cut. At least it was an anomaly for his long-term investors. He converted seven birdies today, including at holes 15-18 to complete his round. Prugh signed his card one back of the clubhouse leader, Sunghoon Kang.

Alex Prugh carded a 7-under-par 29-35=64 in his second round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, and has reached the midpoint of the tournament at 11-under 131, good for the clubhouse lead.

If the PGA TOUR played nothing but events west of the Rocky Mountains, Prugh wouldn't complain. All four of his top 10s this year were posted in California. He's hit just 26 greens at TPC Summerlin thus far, but he's taking advantage and finding the range. He buried a birdie putt of 27'2" at the 14th hole today, and then followed it with an eagle conversion of 41'10" at the 15th. Birdies of 14'9" at the 12th and 5th holes complemented the round, as did a par save from 15'3" at the 4th. Prugh is gunning to become the third rookie to win on TOUR this year (Derek Lamely, Puerto Rico; Rory McIlroy, Quail Hollow).

Alex Prugh signed for a final round of 2-under-par 69 and finished in a tie for second place at the Open.

Prugh played the best of the players in the final group and his even par opening nine holes moved him to within two strokes of the lead. The steady even-par play had Prugh in a five-way tie for the lead after the 13th hole, but a poor approach at the next hole led to a bogey. Prugh looked like he was back in the hunt for the title when almost holed out his tee shot at the short par-4 17th hole, but then Rocco Mediate holed-out from 116-yards to take a two-strokes advantage going into the final hole. A brilliant approach shot resulted in a birdie for Prugh at the final hole, but moments later Mediate sealed the championship when he sank a four-foot par-putt. The T2 finish for Prugh is a career best on the PGA Tour and the official earnings from Open have ensured his Tour card for next season.

Alex Prugh carded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-32=66 in his second round of the Open.

The rookie is an aggregate 7-under 135 through 36 holes, six back of the clubhouse lead. He hit 14 greens today and needed just 27 putts to get around CordeValle. He also saved his best for last, dropping in birdies from 19'4" and 14'6" at the 17th and 18th holes, respectively.
