Due to inclement weather in the Quad Cities area, the resumption of round one play at the John Deere Classic has been delayed further. Previously scheduled to start at 7:00 a.m. CT this morning, the start time has been pushed back to at least 10:00 a.m. UPDATE: Officials have now set 1:20 p.m. as the new target start time.
We knew this was a possible scenario, with thunderstorms in the forecast all day around Silvis, Illinois. The focus will be on getting as much golf in today as possible, as the forecast clears up over the weekend. This puts a burden on all the initial p.m. wave as their start time is still somewhat up in the air and more potential delays could be on the horizon today. Meanwhile, Alex Prugh is likely far from the golf course relaxing this morning after posting a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the opening round on Thursday. Playing on conditional status, he's making just his 12th start of the season with a 5-for-11 record entering the week. Fri, Aug 12, 2016 07:29:00 AM

Alex Prugh put together a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to throw 4-under 206 on the board, up 38 spots on the live leaderboard to T10 and good for the low lap in the clubhouse. UPDATE: D.A. Points posted a 64 five groups later.

The 593rd-ranked player in the world is making just his ninth start of the season on conditional status. His best thus far on two cashes is 78/MDF at the Shriners back in October. The other is T85/MDF at the RSM, so barring any unforeseen events, the Washington state native will play all 72 holes for the first time on TOUR since T51 at the Wyndham last August. He has six career top 10s in 109 starts and all have come in the state of California so this is unfamiliar territory. Prugh began R3 on even-par (T47) after posting twin 70s. He raced out with four birdies in his first five, including a turkey to open, and exchanged four bogeys with four additional birdies the rest of the way, including a walk-off 3 from 31'2" at the 18th, which actually earned him some telecast time.

Alex Prugh is playing this season on conditional status and is making his seventh start in 2015-16 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Washington state native has six career top 10s in 107 events and all have come in California, including two last year on 27 starts. He finished the season 133rd in the FedExCup standings and failed to retain full exempt status in the Tour Finals. This season, he's 2-for-6 but has failed to complete 72 holes posting T85/MDF at the RSM and T78/MDF at the Shriners, so completing an entire tournament should be the goal. The 31-year-old is 2-for-4 at TPC Louisiana with a best of T28 on debut in 2010.

Alex Prugh plays the 2015-16 season on conditional status after finishing 133rd in the FedExCup standings.

The 31-year-old played three tourneys prior to the holiday break and he's yet to complete 72 holes (78/MDF-CUT-T85/MDF). The Spokane, Washington, native and Las Vegas resident has six career top 10s in 103 professional starts, with four coming in 2010 and two last season on 27 starts. All six have come in California, so on the remote chance that he's going to do anything of significance, it'll be there.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
