Alex Prugh readies for a third attempt at this week's RSM Classic.
If at first you don't succeed, try, try again. Prugh has posted an aggregate of 8-over 288 in four rounds at Sea Island’s Seaside Course. His status is only conditional after finishing 133rd in the FedExCup race last season. Gamers can safely overlook Prugh when setting rosters this week, given his poor course history.

Alex Prugh returns home for his fifth look at TPC Summerlin at this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Las Vegas resident will have home cooking on his side this week as he preps for another Shriners. He finished the 2014-15 campaign with 12 missed cuts in 27 starts. Surprisingly, it improved his career track record as he entered the season with a 42 percent rate of cuts made. Prugh should use the local knowledge to get past the cut this week, but his upside is still pretty limited.

Alex Prugh readies for his fourth playing of the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Prugh has cashed in four of his last seven on TOUR. His T23 at the opposite-field Barbasol Championship was his first top-25 finish since a T10 at the AT&T Pebble Beach in mid-February, a span of 15 events. In total, the Tour grad has 12 missed cuts on 26 starts, good for 132nd in the FedExCup standings. He posted T37 at the opposite-field Barracuda Championship in his latest start. The 30-year-old is 1-for-3 at the par-70 Sedgefield, cashing a T41 in 2010. He ranks 95th on TOUR in bogey avoidance and 128th in par-4 scoring average.

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.

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.

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.
