Will Wilcox fired a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open to wrap his tournament debut at 9-under 275, up 26 spots on the live leaderboard to T5 and good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Wilcox finished in a five-way T6 and his 65 was low lap of the round.
As noted in his pre-tourney player news, Wilcox closed the CareerBuilder in 67-67 in his last start. He still missed the scheduled 54-hole cut (by four) after opening in 5-over 77, but it was obviously something to build on. The 29-year-old was T31 thru 54 holes at TPC Scottsdale (68-73-69) and began the day 10 adrift of 54-hole leader Danny Lee. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, and at last check, leads the field in strokes gained: putting with a cumulative 7.949. Wilcox erased a lone bogey at the par-3 eighth with seven birdies ranging from between three and 46 feet, with three dropping from greater than 17 feet. Feb 7 - 3:29 PM

Will Wilcox tees it up for a seventh time in 2015-16 but makes his first appearance at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

The 29-year-old opened the season with T10 (Frys.com) but has missed three of five cuts since and also WD after a first-round 4-under 68 at the weather-plagued Sanderson Farms. He tweeted later he was under the weather and wanted to get better for the OHL in Mexico, where he posted T17 (69-66-68-71). The Alabama native and resident is driving the ball well, ranking 29th on TOUR in total driving, but that's about it. He slots 165th in greens in regulation and 176th in strokes gained: putting. One bright spot was closing the CareerBuilder with 67-67. He still missed the scheduled 54-hole cut by four however, after opening in 5-over 77.

Will Wilcox walks into Waialae Country Club for his second appearance at this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The statistical phenom kept the clubs warm during the fall to arrive at this week's event ranked 69th in the FedExCup standings. Wilcox gave owners a nice sweat in the season opening Frys.com Open before fizzling out on Sunday to finish T10. After his PGA TOUR schedule concluded, he took to the Japan Golf Tour to finish T7 at the Dunlop Phoenix Open. In addition to the recent form, Wilcox posted a T8 (2014) in his only start at the Sony Open.

Will Wilcox went T7 four weeks ago at the Dunlop Phoenix (JGTO) and also played four events in the fall portion of the 2015-16 PGA TOUR season posting two top 20s, one missed cut, and one mid-tournament WD.

The 29-year-old is a top-25 machine with 16 in 39 career TOUR starts, or 41 percent of the time. However, he's also missed the cut in over 35 percent of his starts with 14 early departures. Throw-in one mid-tournament WD and it's like catching a leprechaun. Huge reward if you snare him, but there's almost equal risk. The Alabama native and resident played last season on conditional status and posted four top 10s on 17 starts. His season/career best came at the inaugural, opposite-field Barbasol Championship in mid-July where he finished solo second, three shots in arrears.

Will Wilcox reached the halfway points of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in 7-under-par 69-66=135 and sits five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He promised (on Twitter) that he wouldn't withdraw this week. That's setting the bar rather low but when you call it quits after an opening 68 at the Sanderson Farms, it makes sense. Thus far at El Camaleón, he's connected for 10 birdies to outbalance three bogeys. Wilcox is somewhat fortunate to be in his position entering the weekend given he's found only 16 (of 28) fairways and 23 greens in regulation. Both percentages slotted him outside the top 80 at last check.

In response to an inquiry on Twitter, Will Wilcox stated why he withdrew from the Sanderson Farms Championship before the second round.

Wilcox tweeted, "feelin under the weather.. With 2 weeks outta country coming up i gotta get well." He opened with 68, so there was promise for a big week. At the same time, given the disjointed nature of the tournament due to the rain, gamers can at least understand his decision. After this week's commitment to the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, Wilcox is slated to peg it at the Dunlop Phoenix in Japan on Nov. 19-22.

Will Wilcox withdrew from the Sanderson Farms Championship before his second round.

He was scheduled to go off the first tee at the Country Club of Jackson at 10:42 a.m. CT. It's a curious decision given that Wilcox opened with 4-under 34-34=68 with six birdies. He was well within the cut line with the obvious possibility to contend the rest of the way. This is his first mid-tournament WD in 38 PGA TOUR starts. If an explanation is provided, we will relay it to you. It would be surprising if he doesn't share with his followers on Twitter or on his website why he pulled out considering how forthright he's been about other relevant nuggets of late. In the meantime, this puts his appearance in next week's OHL Classic of Mayakoba in some doubt.

Will Wilcox back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the Frys.com Open to conclude his tournament debut at 11-under 277, good for a seven-way tie for 10th place.

In his first action since injuring his knee in a rental car following a missed cut at The Barclays at the end of August, Wilcox managed a top 10 in the season-opener. He began his final frame in an eight-way tie for fourth place and just two off the pace. The 29-year-old opened with birdie from 6'1" at the par-4 first and that was it. He played his final 17 holes in a birdie-less 2-over, squaring bogeys at Nos. 3 and 7. In fairness, Wilcox only had two other scoring chances from inside nine feet but missed them both, contributing to a -1.274 in strokes gained: putting in the finale. For the week, he totaled 16 birdies, T33 in that stat, but squared just five bogeys, T5 in that category.

Will Wilcox crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's second round of the Frys.com Open to post 9-under 135, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Wilcox shook off his mid-round fade from Thursday and went 5-for-15 in scoring chances for five birdies today. Among the notable conversions were a nine-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 third hole and a conventional roll from 15'1" at the par-4 fourth, both for birdie. He left himself with a testy par try at the last, but it dropped from 55 inches to keep his card clean. Through 36 holes, the 29-year-old has missed only nine (of 28) fairways and six greens in regulation. He'll soar into the weekend with his latest chance to break through for his first PGA TOUR title.

Will Wilcox opened the Frys.com Open with a 4-under-par 30-38=68.

Back in business after an injury to his right knee forced him out before the Deutsche Bank Championship, Wilcox made amends early with birdies on his first four holes and six of his first eight. Three of them traveled 11-15 feet. Alas, the well dried thereafter as he played his last 10 in birdie-free 2-over with a pair of bogey-5s. Nevertheless, this is the form that prompted a promotion from conditional status in 2014-15 to fully exempt status this season. He'll take full advantage, too. as Wilcox has three more starts planned this fall (Shriners, Sanderson Farms, Mayakoba) before jetting to Japan for the Dunlop Phoenix in mid-November.

Will Wilcox is included in the published field of next week's Frys.com Open.

You may recall that he ended his FedExCup Playoffs early by withdrawing from the Deutsche Bank Championship prior to the tournament due to a knee injury. The good news is that's a thing of the past. In a response to a status check on Twitter on Oct. 1, Wilcox said, "hey the knee is all good! Was a deep bruise that healed n [sic] 2 weeks. Ill [sic] be good to go for Frys." Good for us, too. He'll be a popular investment in every format right out of the gate.

Will Wilcox has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship due to an injury to his right knee.

In a descriptive entry on his website, Wilcox wrote, "On Monday morning of this week, I slammed my right knee into the dash of my rental car, which was set up much differently than my car, while getting in to drive to a fundraiser golf event outside of Atlanta. After attempting to treat it myself with rest and ice, the pain and swelling continued. Over the past few days, I have sought out multiple medical opinions. ... After appointments, X-Ray and a MRI, we have found deep bruising to my patellar tendon, which explains the current pain and difficultly in applying weight to my right knee and leg." At 89th in the FedExCup standings, he will not advance in the Playoffs. "The 2015-16 season will be here very soon," he added. "I am looking forward to getting 100% healthy, rested and prepared for full status on the PGA TOUR for next season and beyond."

Will Wilcox hung up a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of The Barclays, good for a piece of the clubhouse lead with Daniel Summerhays.

Out in the second threesome off the 10th tee at Plainfield Country Club this morning, Wilcox extended his recent form by splitting 11 (of 14) fairways and landing 13 greens in regulation. That yielded five birdies, including a round-long 21'4" at the par-4 17th hole. He also poured in a par save from 20'8" at the par-3 11th. He starts the Playoffs ranked 75th in points, but has earned the spot atop the short list of probables to advance all the way to East Lake. Continue to enjoy this ride.

Will Wilcox managed a 12-point effort in the final round of the Barracuda Championship to conclude at 38 points, nine in arrears of clubhouse leader Kyle Reifers.

Wilcox began his final frame with 26 points (solo 21st) and 15 points adrift. On his round, he landed all 14 fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, converting on seven for a sparkling 1.538 putts per GIR. The 29-year-old's set included four rolls from inside three feet with a long of 15'8" coming at the par-4 ninth. He dropped points with bogeys at the 12th and 16th after missing both greens and also missed three scoring chances from inside nine feet. Wilcox sits T10 on the live leaderboard and if it holds up, it would be his fourth top 10 of the season on 15 starts. He entered the week slotted 89th in the FedExCup standings.

Will Wilcox tallied 12 points in today's second round of the Barracuda Championship to post 21 at the break, five off the pace of the 36-hole co-leaders.

He is where we expected to be entering the weekend in Reno. Wilcox went 4-for-4 in scrambling but squared a three-putt bogey at the par-3 16th hole. With that pesky detail aside, he authored one of the highlights of the day with a hole-out for eagle from the fairway 121 yards away at the par-4 12th hole. The 29-year-old also converted four birdies, the longest dropping from just 10'7" at the par-4 ninth hole. And just to show that he's truly balanced throughout his bag, his 389-yard poke at the par-5 18th hole is the longest measured drive of the week.
