Alistair Presnell makes his way back to the Chile Classic after finishing runner-up in last year's edition.
Presnell could use a friendly layout, as he has missed each of his four Tour cuts to start the year. The Aussie is a veteran of 135 Tour events, so he knows how to cope with the highs and lows of life on Tour. Considering he's missed almost as many cuts (64) as he has made (70), this is not the first time he's faced a dry spell. He needs to get moving in the right directly sooner rather than later to ensure his spot in the top 75 at season's end for a shot at a PGA TOUR card for 2015-16. Wed, Mar 18, 2015 05:46:00 PM

Alistair Presnell was a co-runner-up in the 2010 WNB Golf Classic and return to Midlands CC this week.

The Aussie has perfect attendance on the 2014 Tour, having made four of his six cuts and finishing alone in second at the Chile Classic. That's good for 11th on the money list. At this rate, he will make a second trip to the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 after failing to keep in card in his rookie season of 2013.

Alistair Presnell submitted a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and enters the finale inside the top 10 at 5-under 205.

Beginning the week 194th in the FedExCup standings, it's a bit surprising he was able to play such a flawless round on a tough day for scoring at Sedgefield. He began his day on the 10th hole, circling birdies at the difficult par-4 18th, the par-4 second and the reachable par-5 fifth.

Alistair Presnell turned in a 3-under-par 35-32=67 for his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

The Aussie arrived at the regular-season finale ranked 194th in both FedExCup points and earnings. He then started his first-ever competitive lap around Sedgefield par-bogey-bogey-bogey before righting the ship. Presnell played the remainder in bogey-free 6-under with three birdies on each side. The set included conversions from 13'6" at the sixth hole and 10'10" at 13. He reached the clubhouse sitting just three strokes adrift of the lead.

Alistair Presnell circled an eagle on the 18th hole in his third round of the RBC Canadian Open, highlighting a 4-under-par 36-32=68.

Presnell had a bogey and 10 pars through his first 11 holes, but picked up the pace on his final seven holes. Birdies on 12, 13 and 14 settled him down, then a 26'5" putt for eagle found the bottom of the cup to put the cherry on top. Entering the week 196th in the FedExCup standings, he needs a couple of huge weeks if he want to retain his 2013-14 TOUR card and avoid the Tour playoffs.

Alistair Presnell has arrived at Glen Abbey for the RBC Canadian Open.

It's been a long season for the Aussie, failing to crack a top 30 since his T30 at Pebble Beach. At 196th in the FedExCup standings, he's running out of time to secure a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card. In fact, his first priority should be staying inside the top 200 so he has a shot to play in the four-tournament playoff for a TOUR card next year.

Alistair Presnell's rookie campaign heads to Connecticut for the Travelers Championship.

As you might assume, this is Presnell's first trip to TPC River Highlands. He broke a string of five missed cuts dating back to the RBC Heritage with his T67 at the U.S. Open which included a 76-79 finish. At 131st in par breakers, it's hard to imagine he will make enough birdies to contend at the annual shootout that awaits.

Alistair Presnell makes his first trip to Quail Hollow for the Wells Fargo Championship.

The rookie enters the week having made just four of his 11 cuts, with a T30 in Pebble Beach still standing as his highlight. With back-to-back missed cuts as the backdrop, he heads to Charlotte searching for some type of spark. At 166th in Total Driving, he may have a hard time navigating the long and demanding course that awaits.

Alistair Presnell opened the Valero Texas Open with a 3-under-par 34-35=69, finishing two strokes off the overnight lead.

The rookie is 0-for-4 since the PGA TOUR traveled east for the Florida Swing, but today's tour of TPC San Antonio was his first sub-71 in eight complete rounds. He hit only half of his greens in regulation and missed three putts from 10 feet and in, but he still managed to circle six birdies to offset three bogeys. His most notable par breakers measured 10'7" at 17 and 20'6" at 9.

Alistair Presnell posted an even-par 38-34=72 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Back in action following a mid-round withdrawal at last week's Honda (back injury caused by the flu), the Aussie began his round at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico with a bogey at the par-4 first hole. Still 3-over on the loop after 11 holes, he managed to scrape together birdies at 12, 15 and 18 to reach level par. The last two are par 5s. He's seven back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Alistair Presnell is listed in the published field of next week's Puerto Rico Open.

Good news, but given his spirits on Twitter, not surprising. Even if your format includes this event, take a pass on the Australian rookie. He's still after his first top 25.

Alistair Presnell withdrew at the turn during his opening round of The Honda Classic due to an illness.

The rookie from Australia started on the 10th hole at PGA National and went out in 9-over-par 44. His experience a quintuple bogey-8 on the 15th hole in addition to one bogey and two doubles (including at the par-3 17th to conclude The Bear Trap). That he rolled in a birdie from 41'6" at the par-4 18th hole was nothing but a minor moral victory. UPDATE: After his WD, Presnell wrote the following on Twitter: "Unfortunately my back seized up (result of flu) so I had to WD from the #HondaClassic. Disappointed, but didn't want to make it any worse."

Alistair Presnell was added to the published field of this week's Honda Classic.

Presnell was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He climbed into the field of 144 as one of the final four sponsor exemptions. The Australian rookie went 3-for-5 on the West Coast Swing but failed to post a top 25. This will mark his first appearance at PGA National.

Alistair Presnell turned in a 4-under-par 34-34=68 at Spyglass Hill for his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The Aussie arrived this week having cashed in his first two of four starts on the season, but he's yet to crack a top 35. Today's score marks the fourth time already that he's logged a sub-70, so it seems that it's only a matter of time before he rides that momentum for an entire event. He offset two bogeys with six birdies to finish two strokes off the overnight lead. The PGA TOUR rookie will play the host course in the second round.

Alistar Presnell carded a 33-34=67 on the Pine Course at McCormick Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale, Ariz. on Monday, good for medalist honors at the open qualifier for this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie missed the cut at last week's Farmers Insurance Open, thus affording him the time to travel and participate in the open qualifier. Many that were scheduled to compete stayed at Torrey Pines to secure a paycheck, thus forfeiting their tee times at the OQ. Presnell finished one stroke clear of a foursome that returned this morning to vie for the final two berths into the tournament proper. (This is the only open qualifier of the season that awards three spots instead of four.) John Hurley (32-36=68) and 2012 PGA TOUR rookie Edward Loar (35-33=68) survived the 4-for-2 playoff over Aaron Watkins (35-33=68) and Kent Eger (32-36=68). The field for the WMPO is now complete at 132.
