Will Wilcox has gained entry into this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
Wilcox was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, so he had no trouble getting a tee time at TPC Louisiana this Thursday following three withdrawals. The 28-year-old has conditional status on the PGA TOUR. He's made the most of it with five paydays in just six starts to sit 150th in the FedExCup standings. He's bouncing off a T12 in Mexico on the Web.com Tour, so he's putting together the kind of dual-circuit success that we've seen in recent years from guys like Brendon Todd and Russell Knox. As a result, Wilcox demands your attention every time he pegs it as he's in pursuit of achieving the same objective that Robert Streb made a reality last season; that is, qualify for the Playoffs on conditional status.

Will Wilcox toured the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort Golf Club in 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's opening round of the Valspar Championship.

He's already parlayed his top 10 in Puerto Rico into contention at Copperhead. Wilcox hit 14 greens in regulation and converted four birdies against a lone bogey at the par-4 16th hole. Two of his par breakers rolled in from just outside 16 feet. He signed his card sitting only two strokes off the clubhouse lead. Wilcox has top 20s in his last three PGA TOUR starts and demands attention in all formats despite the fact that he's playing with conditional status.

Will Wilcox has joined the field at this week's Valspar Championship.

Wilcox tied for sixth at the Puerto Rico Open, thus earning a top-10 exemption into this week's stop at Innisbrook Resort where he'll be making his first appearance. The 28-year-old has made only 23 starts on the PGA TOUR, but he has three top 10s and another five top 25s. Those are strong ratios for any relative newcomer. Even though he's playing 2014-15 on conditional status, he's worth a look in all formats. Currently 136th in the FedExCup standings and approaching that time of year when fields begin expanding and looping in his category.

Will Wilcox ran through the tape at the Puerto Rico Open, posting 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round.

Oh, what could have been. Wilcox opened with a 5-over 77, and then rallied for a pair of 69s before today's success. When he signed his card, he ranked third in the field in fairways hit (45 of 56) and T11 in greens in regulation (53). Today, he birdied four of his first five holes and totaled seven on the round to help offset bogeys at Nos. 6 and 7. At 6-under 282, the 28-year-old owns sole possession of the 72-hole clubhouse lead. It's unlikely to hold up or even get him into a playoff, but a top 10 would exempt him into this week's Valspar Championship. In that regard, it's a valuable bonus as he navigates the PGA TOUR on conditional status.
Mar 8 - 3:00 PM

Will Wilcox spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 at Spyglass Hill Golf Club in today's second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Making his first start of the 2015 portion of the schedule due to conditional status, Wilcox is making the most of it. He went 6-for-6 in scrambling today and converted five birdies, three of which on par 5s. Added to a 5-under 66 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course in the lid-lifter, the 28-year-old is 10-under 133 at the break, two strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. He'll conclude his rotation on the host course on Saturday.
Feb 13 - 5:38 PM

Will Wilcox finished tied for 64th at the 2014 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am and returns for another shot this week.

Wilcox is playing on conditional status and could really benefit from a high finish this week. His latest start was at the Sanderson Farms Championship and it yielded a T14 finish. Gamers looking to use the motivation angle could take a flier on Wilcox but he is no sure thing. He finished the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season ranked 53rd in strokes gained:tee-to-green which could certainly pay dividends this weekend.

Will Wilcox is competing on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR with conditional status after closing out last season 142nd in the FedExCup standings.

Wilcox gradually improved throughout the early part of the new season, following up a missed cut at The McGladrey Classic with a T63 in the CIMB Classic and a T14 in the Sanderson Farms Open. Because the Sanderson Farms Championship is played opposite of the WGC-HSBC Champions, he was awarded a fraction of the usual allotment of FedExCup points of a regular TOUR event. That is a big reason as to why he is only 149th in the FEC standings.

Will Wilcox carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Sanderson Farms Open to join a growing group of players at 8-under 208.

The sophomore circled three birdies and squared one bogey on each of his two nines at the Country Club of Jackson. He landed 15 GIR and gained well over a stroke with his flat stick. Perhaps it shouldn't be a surprise that he's finding the event to his liking, as it is a relative home game. He is a native of Birmingham, Alabama.

Will Wilcox has been added to the published field of this week's CIMB Classic.

Wilcox was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry due to two withdrawals prior to today's 9:00 a.m. local time deadline in Malaysia. Any withdrawals will now be replaced by golfers from the Asian Tour. Wilcox missed the cut at The McGladrey Classic by four strokes, but he's guaranteed FedExCup points and official earnings as long as completes four rounds in Kuala Lumpur. He's playing this season in the conditional status category, which reshuffles for the first time, so the trip to Malaysia could prove to be invaluable in the long-term.

Will Wilcox has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

He started the week as the seventh alternate. He procured a tee time when Robert Garrigus withdrew. Wilcox was trending to regain fully exempt status at the Web.com Tour Finals, but he missed the cut in the last two events and finished 32nd among those chasing 25 PGA TOUR cards. He'll not only be making his 2014-15 season debut, but Wilcox will be a first-timer at Seaside as well.

Will Wilcox will tee it up in the Web.com Tour Championship this week with full status on the PGA TOUR for 2014-15 on the line.

The good news for Wilcox is that he already has conditional status locked up by virtue of finishing 142nd in the FedExCup standings during his rookie season on TOUR. With a T19 in the Hotel Fitness Championship and a T12 in the Chiquita Classic ultimately boosting him to 23rd in the Web.com Tour Finals money list for players not already exempt for 2014-15, he is well positioned to solidify his standing for next season.

Will Wilcox makes his 16th start of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at the Wyndham Championship.

The rookie enters Sedgefield Country Club ranked 146th in the FedExCup standings and 138th on the PGA TOUR money list. While the main goal is cracking the top 125 on one or both of those lists for full status on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR, there is plenty of value associated with a top-150 finish in the FEC standings. Those finishing in the 126-150 range in the FEC standings earn conditional status on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR. That could be good for between 10 and 15 starts next season. It is worth noting that the 126-150 category on the money list is worthless in terms of conditional status.

Will Wilcox turned in a final-round 1-under-par 35-34=69 at The Greenbrier Classic to earn a career-best finish at 9-under 271.

Wilcox previously posted his best finish at the Sony Open in the form of a T8, and finds himself tied for fourth with only four players remaining on the course at the time of his posting. He circled three birdies, all on the back nine at The Old White TPC, to just two bogeys on his final lap. His 10'1" effort on the par-5 12th was the longest of his red figures. He entered the week ranked 163rd in the FedExCup standings, and is projected to move inside the top 150 if the results hold.

Will Wilcox carded a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to join Michael Thompson and Cameron Tringale atop the clubhouse at 8-under 202.

Wilcox is the least experience of the trio, owning just one previous top-10 finish on the PGA TOUR. His only action on the front nine at The Old White TPC was a 27'8" birdie at the par-4 sixth hole. Business picked up on the back, with an eagle at the par-5 12th from 4'7" highlighting his effort. He also tacked on three birdies, including 14'7" effort on the par-3 15th, to just one bogey on the back. He missed just two fairways and two GIR on the afternoon.

Will Wilcox set to make his tournament debut at this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Wilcox has shown flashes of brilliance in his PGA TOUR rookie season, with three finishes inside the top 35. Like most rookies, finding starts has been an issue, as this will be just his 12th start of the season. Wilcox does his damage with his length on par 5s, ranking 31st in par 5 birdie or better percentage. Unfortunately, The Old White TPC will only afford him two par 5s per round this week.
