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.

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

Prugh was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday. He snuck in following a pair of withdrawals this morning. In his return to the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, he missed his first six cuts. All four of the Washington state native's career top 10s have occurred on the West Coast. His best finish was a T2 at this tournament in 2010 when it was contested at CordeValle. The event will be played at Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course for the first time this week.

Alex Prugh is one of the 2014 Tour Finals grads and will try to make the most of his fresh PGA TOUR card this season.

Prugh will enter the year placed 38th on the opening reshuffle, meaning an early-season strong finish or two would go a long way to prevent a year like the last where he only accumulated 16 starts. At 30 years of age, he's not past his prime, but you would like to see more than a 31-for-74 record at this point in his career if you were a gamer looking to invest. Prugh ranked first in GIR percentage on the Tour last season. It will be interesting to see how that 75% translates to the PGA TOUR.

Alex Prugh finished the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season ranked 206th in the FedExCup standings but could earn a return trip to the big time with a solid Tour Championship.

Since he finished outside the top 200 in the FEC standings, Prugh had to earn his spot in the Tour Finals by virtue of being 36th on the Tour regular season money list. Not a bad result considering he made just seven starts prior to the Finals. He enters this week ranked 29th on the list of players who have not already earned a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card, and he must crack the top 25 in order to return to the PGA TOUR next season.

Alex Prugh readies for his third Wyndham Championship start this week at Sedgefield Country Club.

Prugh enters the week ranked 204th in the FedExCup standings, a true long-shot to make the FEC Playoffs. A more reasonable goal would be climbing into the top 200 of the FEC standings, earning him exemption into the Tour Finals. Even that will be a tall task for Prugh as he's missed cuts in 11 of his 15 events on the season.

Alex Prugh returns to Silvis, Illinois, for his second look at TPC Deere Run in this week's John Deere Classic.

Prugh is on the outside looking in, entering the week ranked 210th in the FedExCup standings. With only three cuts made in 12 attempts, he is in desperate need of a big finish over the next six weeks. Prugh debuted on TPC Deere Run in 2011 with a share of 45th place, and gamers could mark that down as a likely ceiling this week.

Alex Prugh is set to make his 11th start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR schedule at the Travelers Championship.

Prugh has twice teed it up at TPC River Highlands, missing the cut in 2011 after a T57 in 2010. He's made just three of 10 cuts this season on the PGA TOUR, but has made each of his four cuts when dropping down to the Tour including a runner-up at the South Georgia Classic. To borrow from a baseball analogy, he's becoming quite the AAAA player.

Alex Prugh enjoyed a 3-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Prugh's return to the PGA TOUR this season simply has not gone his way. He opened 0-for-6 and has cashed just twice. But as the old saying goes, it takes just one week to change a career. He landed 12 greens in regulation and swallowed just one bogey while picking off four birdies. His longest measured 12'11" at the par-4 10th hole where he began the round. Thanks to his lowest round of 21 in 2013-14, Prugh sits just two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Alex Prugh hopes his third start in the HP Byron Nelson Championship proves to be a lucky one.

Prugh missed his first six cuts of the PGA TOUR season before tying for 72nd in the Valero Texas Open and sharing 29th in his last start at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Add to that, his two starts at TPC Four Seasons resulted in a T59 in 2010 and a T63 in 2011. It's reasonable to expect that he could make his third consecutive paycheck in both this event and this seasons.

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.
