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

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

If you checked it with us earlier this week, you know that we relayed his removal when it occurred the first time. A few hours later, he was reinserted so we deleted the blurb. Cauley remained in the field until this morning. He was in the area on Tuesday, spending time at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar in San Diego. If an explanation is released for his decision not to compete, we will pass it along. He's just 1-for-6 on the season with a solo 71st-place finish at the Open.

Bud Cauley entered the 2013 PGA TOUR season as one of the young guns to watch, but failed to finish inside the top 125 of either the money list or the FedExCup standings and was relegated to the Tour Finals.

Fortunately for Cauley, he bowed his neck and earned enough cash in the four-event series to regain his PGA TOUR card for 2013-14. In his first four starts of the new season, he failed to carry over the momentum and made just one cut in four attempts, finishing 71st at the Open. He is subject to the reshuffle, and has dropped to 31st in that category following the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. This time last year, he was considered an excellent prospect and a good investment. He now requires thoughtful deliberation and patience as a fantasy option.

Bud Cauley is ready for his first appearance in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Unfortunately for Cauley, the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season isn't starting any better than the 2013 edition ended. He regained his card via the Tour finals, but has made just one of three cuts. That went for a 71st at the season-opening Open. Recently considered a top talent, he needs something good to happen at El Camaleón Golf Club or he risks tumbling down the first reshuffle, which occurs after this tournament.

Bud Cauley remains on the PGA TOUR after successfully navigating the Finals and kicks off his season at the Open.

Cauley was a victim of the dreaded sophomore slump in 2013, failing to finish inside the top 125 in either the FedExCup or the money list in his second full season on TOUR. Unfazed, he finished high enough in the four-tournament Finals to rank 16th in the Tour graduate reshuffle. He finished third at CordeValle in 2011, but fell to a T55 last year.

Bud Cauley corralled seven points in his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

He made the turn with one point after two birdies and three bogeys. It stayed that way until he birdied 13 and 14 and concluded his round with a birdie at 18. Cauley has 17 points at the midpoint and sits just five off Andres Romero's 36-hole lead.

Bud Cauley amassed 10 points in his opening round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

Gamers need to remember that he's only 23 years of age and the days of chasing a PGA TOUR card through nontraditional means are over. He's 9-for-22 on the season and has yet to pick off a top 10. It has him 129th in FedExCup points and 137th on the money list. Today he buried six birdies against two bogeys to finish four points adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Bud Cauley carded a 3-over-par 38-36=74 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

He hit only nine greens in regulation but managed to find seven birdies at Muirfield today, so there's an argument that he stole one from the R&A today. However, he also incurred five bogeys in between an opening 7 at the par-4 first and a 6 at the par-4 last.

Bud Cauley settled for a 6-over-par 37-40=77 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The PGA TOUR sophomore entered the week having cashed in just eight of 19 starts with no top 10s, but he's 123rd in FedExCup points. Unless he turns it around on Friday, he'll be in danger of falling outside the top-125 bubble. Cauley hit 10 greens in regulation at TPC Deere Run today but failed to convert on any. He missed three putts inside 10 feet and square six bogeys.

Bud Cauley settled for a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in his second round of the AT&T National to reach the midpoint in 2-under 140, five back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit 13 greens in regulation but wiped away the benefit of three birdies with four bogeys. Cauley whiffed on five attempts from inside 10 feet, two of which for birdie; the other three resulted in bogeys.

Bud Cauley carded a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the AT&T National, finishing two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Cauley matched early-draw leader Billy Horschel, but fellow afternoon waver Roberto Castro took it two shots deeper. Cauley hit 13 greens and rolled in five birdies. The set included conversions from 17 feet at the 14th hole and 23'6" at 4. He also curled in a par save from 20'4" at the par-3 second where his tee ball came to rest well right of the green. He's 115th in FedExCup points but hasn't finished better than a T14 at Colonial this season.

Bud Cauley spun a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and is the first to post 8-under 202.

Cauley circled five birdies, suffering one bogey, in his navigation of Colonial Country Club. While he found just half of his greens in regulation, he crafted a 1.556 putting average and managed a birdie from off the green on the par-3 16th. The 2013 season has been a struggle for him, with a T16 at the Shell Houston Open his best of the season. With three rounds in the 60s and 18 holes remaining, perhaps a return trip to the Lone Star State was exactly what the doctor ordered.

Bud Cauley returns for the second time to play the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Cauley's already had a busy week, open qualifying for The Open Championship on Monday. His 2013 season hasn't been as successful as his rookie season, which included a missed cut at Colonial CC. At 124th in the FedExCup standings, he has some work to do over the next three months to ensure that he retains his card for a third full season.

Bud Cauley has been removed from the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

He missed the 36-hole cut at the RBC Heritage by four strokes to drop to 4-for-11 on the season. The PGA TOUR sophomore sits 115th in FedExCup points, but for all intents and purposes, he's enduring a slump. Unfair as it may be for a 23-year-old who's going to take his lumps from time to time, his early success has projected for greater heights.
