Bud Cauley provided a straightforward update on his well-being following a dislocated left shoulder suffered during the Saturday of the John Deere Classic.
Cauley wrote, "disappointed to not be teeing it up in the @RBCCanadianOpen today. still rehabbing the shoulder. getting better everyday." All of that information is pretty much what we'd expect. Since he's 118th on the money list, he can afford at least one week off, but starts in the final two opens are question marks. Expect him to take it week to week, but don't be surprised if he commits to next week's Reno-Tahoe Open and then withdraws early like he did this week. Jul 24 - 11:36 AM

Bud Cauley has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Cauley suffered a dislocated shoulder during the third round of the John Deere Classic, but gutted out a share of 52nd place for 16.00 FedExCup points. He's 131st in the standings but 118th in earnings, so he just may secure 2014-15 status on money. Still, the RBC is one of three remaining events in which most of the guys near him on both lists will play, so he probably won't be able to afford sitting out the remainder of the regular season to heal.

Bud Cauley alerted his followers on Twitter today to probably explain why he blew up for a 3-over-par 33-41=74 in the final round of the John Deere Classic.

Cauley wrote, "dislocated my left shoulder Saturday at the John Deere. no tears so I hope a week of rehab will have me ready for the Canadian open!" The RBC Canadian Open is scheduled for July 24-27. Cauley sat T18 after 54 holes and went out in bogey-free 2-under through 10 in the final round. He then played the final eight holes in 5-over with one birdie, three bogeys and a triple. He didn't elaborate as to how he suffered the injury, but clearly he was able to gut it out. The 24-year-old sits 130th in the FedExCup standings and 118th in earnings.
Jul 15 - 7:41 PM

Bud Cauley has crafted a pair of bogey-free, 4-under-par 67s to begin the John Deere Classic.

Cauley remains on fire. After sharing fourth place at Greenbrier on Sunday, he's gone 11-for-11 in scrambling at TPC Deere Run and converted four birdies in each round. Today's set featured rolls from 14'9" and 13'1" at Nos. 4 and 6, respectively. At 8-under 134, the 24-year-old is four strokes back of the 36-hole co-leaders.
Jul 11 - 8:05 PM

Bud Cauley fired a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic and is the first to post 9-under 271.

Cauley gave the fans positioned in the sky boxes surrounding the 18th green something to remember. He landed his 7-iron on the par 3 measuring 176 yards today just short of the hole and watched it roll into the cup for a hole-in-one. His first 17 holes featured six birdies and two bogeys, so he had it going all day long. Highlights were abundant, as four of his birdies were longer than 12 feet, with a 29'3" effort on the par-5 12th the longest.
Jul 6 - 2:08 PM

Bud Cauley settled for a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Travelers Championship.

Cauley didn't make the most of moving day, but didn't fall out of contention, either. He reached 2-over on the round through seven before bouncing back with back-to-back birdies from 11'11" and then 17'8" on the next two holes. While his T11 at the Zurich was close, Cauley hasn't officially earned a top 10 since the 2010 Barclays.
Jun 21 - 5:20 PM

Bud Cauley followed his opening 63 at the Travelers Championship with an even-par 35-35=70 to post 7-under 133, coming to rest four strokes off Scott Langley's 36-hole pace.

He went just 3-for-6 in scrambling with three bogeys and was fortunate not to score higher thanks to a pair of long-range birdie conversions. After sinking his try from 27'10" at the par-4 second hole, Cauley dropped the bomb from 50'5" at the par-4 17th. Every round is crucial as only two months remain in the PGA TOUR's regular season, so he'll need to find a better gear on the weekend at TPC River Highlands.
Jun 20 - 7:00 PM

Bud Cauley stormed to a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Cauley has been slipping gears all season, arriving in central Connecticut ranked outside the top 150 in both FedExCup points and earnings. He hadn't scored lower than 66 until today. Toting a torrid putter that yielded a strokes gained split of 2.688 at last check, he converted an eagle from 20'3" at the drivable, par-4 15th and six birdies, five of which from outside 10 feet. He went 1-for-2 in scrambling with a bogey-5 at No. 2, his only gaffe of the round.
Jun 19 - 1:59 PM

Bud Cauley withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Classic during his second round.

He was laying 3 on the par-4 sixth hole when the second weather delay occurred on Friday afternoon. Cauley sat birdie-free 7-over-par through 14 holes on the round and 7-over for the tournament, so he'd have needed a miracle to make the cut. It's a disappointing end to a week that included some promise as he was coming off a T21 at Colonial, his second of two top 25s on the season, both in his last four starts. He did not qualify for the U.S. Open.
Jun 7 - 8:39 AM

Bud Cauley returns for his second FedEx St. Jude Classic after missing the cut in 2013.

The last 18 months has been a disappointment for Cauley considering how well he played very early in his PGA TOUR career. While he's stayed off the front page of leaderboards of late, he's shown signs that his game could be coming around. He's made three of his last four cuts, with two going for top 25s. He's improved from 193rd in the FedExCup standings to 152nd in the last few months.
Jun 3 - 10:31 PM

Bud Cauley has been added to the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Cauley was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Briny Baird withdrew. Cauley is coming off a season-best T11 in New Orleans to rise to 167th in FedExCup points. In his only previous stop at Quail Hollow, he shared 38th place a year ago.
Apr 28 - 11:01 AM

Bud Cauley crafted a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach the 54-hole mark at 11-under 205.

Once a rising star, Cauley entered this week 199th in the FedExCup standings and an afterthought on the PGA TOUR. Perhaps that will change when the TOUR leaves TPC Louisiana, as he circled seven birdies to just one bogey on Saturday afternoon. Highlights included birdies from 17'4" and 14'1" on the par-5 11th and 18th holes. He currently ranks inside the top 20 in GIR, strokes gained-putting and putting average for the tournament.
Apr 26 - 4:11 PM

Bud Cauley is looking to bounce back at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Cauley was finally starting to build momentum with a T45 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am followed by a T29 at the Puerto Rico Open, but followed it up with a missed cut at the Valero Texas Open. After starting his career missing just nine cuts in his first 37 tournaments, he has since missed 19 of his last 32 cuts.
Apr 23 - 10:51 AM

Bud Cauley turned in a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Well, hello! Where have you been? He sandwiched a bogey-5 at the first hole with six birdies to post 8-under 136, four off the 36-hole lead. Cauley hadn't scored lower than 69 all season. He hasn't gone as low as today's since a 4-under 66 in the third round of the Colonial over nine months ago. This kind of start would translate into a huge pick-me-up given he's gone 17 straight starts without a top-30 finish.
Mar 7 - 4:57 PM

Bud Cauley is listed in the published field of next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

There was some concern when he was removed, reinserted and removed again from the field at last week's Farmers. Cauley was in the area early in the week, but wasn't replaced publicly until Thursday. Should he honor this latest commitment, he'll be making his first start since the Humana Challenge, where he missed the cut. It was his fifth consecutive MC after opening the season with a solo 71st at the
