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.
Jul 6 - 5:44 PM

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.
Jul 5 - 3:09 PM

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.
Jul 1 - 12:46 PM

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.
Jun 2 - 10:31 PM

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.
Apr 25 - 2:56 PM

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.
Apr 24 - 8:05 PM

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.
Apr 23 - 11:01 AM

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.
Mar 25 - 10:25 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.
Jan 13 - 10:08 AM

Will Wilcox stumbled to a 1-over-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the Sony Open, falling into a tie for eighth at 10-under 270.

It was the rookie's first career top 10 on the PGA TOUR, so all was not lost. Furthering the learning experience, he was able to play in the final threesome in the final round of a tournament for the first time. With this top 10, he is guaranteed a spot in the field at the Farmers Insurance Open in two weeks. Entering this tournament at the bottom of the Tour reshuffle, this will be huge in terms of the remainder of his schedule.
Jan 12 - 10:32 PM

Will Wilcox posted a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the Sony Open to take the lead at 11-under 199.

Wilcox is making just his third career PGA TOUR start, and first as a member in his rookie season. His round featured seven birdies to just one bogey. If this sounds familiar, perhaps it should. Russell Henley won last year's Sony Open in the first start of his rookie season in what was also the third start of his career. Wilcox was unable to gain entry into any of the fall events of the 2013-14 schedule because his number coming off the Tour was so low. A win tomorrow would remove him from the reshuffle and allow him to set his schedule for the remainder of 2013-14, as well as the two seasons following.
Jan 11 - 6:49 PM

Will Wilcox more than answered his season-opening 69 at the Sony Open in Hawaii with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round.

He has to be soaring. This is nowhere near the kind of foray any gamer could have expected, but it's in the direction of the kind of effort that could define his year, if not his career. Wilcox split only five (of 14) fairways but he hit 13 greens and poured in five birdies against one bogey. His highlights came twofold in the form of a par save from 33'5" at the par-4 14th and a hole-out from a greenside bunker 24 yards away for birdie at the par-4 first. The rookie is at 5-under 135, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Jan 10 - 8:15 PM

Will Wilcox signed for a 1-under-par 36-33=69 following his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

His patience to make his debut as a PGA TOUR rookie paid off. Back inside the ropes since August (after taking time away for personal reasons), Wilcox split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens at Waialae today. He went 0-for-3 in scrambling with three bogeys, but found four birdies, the longest of which from just 10'10" at the par-3 11th hole. Stuck at the bottom of the reshuffle, starts on the West Coast Swing will be hard to find, but Pebble Beach always has room for his category on merit.
