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. Sat, Dec 6, 2014 08:24:00 PM

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 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 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 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.

Will Wilcox turns his attention to TPC Southwind for his first start in the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

While his rookie season hasn't been a massive success, at 167th in the FedExCup standings it hasn't been a total failure either. He's made each of his last three cuts, and six of nine overall, with his T8 at the Sony Open in his first start still standing as the best. Proximity is a concern this week, as Wilcox ranks 183rd in that statistic.

Will Wilcox chased his opening 68 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with another in his second round.

Wilcox submitted respective nines of 35 and 33 today and squared one bogey on each side, but compensated with six birdies. His only conversion outside 10 feet measured 10'6" at the par-3 ninth hole, his last of the walk, and it dropped for par on the tail end of a two-putt from 41'5". At 8-under 136, the rookie sits seven strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Will Wilcox carded a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, finishing six strokes off the overnight lead.

This was about as high a score for which he could have signed. The rookie missed only one green in regulation, but converted on just four chances to break par. His only notable birdie measured 14'7" at the par-4 10th. He also whiffed on three chances inside 10 feet, including a 47-incher at the par-4 fifth.

Will Wilcox is set to make his debut at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans this week.

The rookie is batting .500 on the season and currently ranks 177th in the FedExCup standings. Sitting in the bottom-half of the Tour reshuffle, securing a payday this week will be pivotal in finding future starts for the up-and-comer.

Will Wilcox is set to make his debut at the Valero Texas Open this week.

The rookie cooled off after a top 10 to start the season, but is starting to heat back up. He has made back-to-back cuts on the PGA TOUR and stayed fresh with a T20 last week on the TOUR. His performance on the par 5s this year is very encouraging. Wilcox has played them at 3-under-par or better in all five of his 2014 PGA TOUR events. That could be very useful this week with four par 5s on the scorecard.
Tue, Mar 25, 2014 10:25:00 PM

Will Wilcox has been added to the published field of this week's Humana Challenge.

As we explained on Sunday night, the rookie's top 10 at the Sony Open in Hawaii secured a berth into next week's Farmers Insurance Open. The Humana Challenge isn't an open event, but it reserved one spot in the field for the winner at Waialae if he wasn't otherwise exempt. Champion Jimmy Walker didn't commit but he didn't change his plans either, so the tournament organizers gave the final sponsor exemption to Wilcox.
