In an entry at today, the runner-up at the Barbasol Championship shared with readers that an injured wrist prompted his withdrawal from this week's RBC Canadian Open.
In part, Wilcox wrote, "While playing the final round at the Barbasol Championship, I hit a shot out of a poor lie in the rough on number 11 which came up well short of the green. During impact, I felt pain in my wrist however did my best to ignore it the remainder of the round. Sunday evening and thru the day Monday, the inflammation did not immediately subside and it continues to feel 'tweaked.' After consulting with my long time doctor and other members of my team I have decided that it is best for me to take this week off to rest in the interest of long term health." The good news is that it's a precautionary decision. He's expecting to lace up the spikes at next week's Quicken Loans National. Jul 21 - 3:38 PM

Will Wilcox fired a 4-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the inaugural Barbasol Championship to polish off a 16-under 268 aggregate, good for solo second and three shots back of champion Scott Piercy.

Wilcox began the day at 12-under (T3) and three off the pace of Piercy and Ricky Barnes. The native of Birmingham, Alabama, opened a little nervy, missing two of his first four greens, but managed pars at each. He opened his scoring from 5'8" at the par-5 fifth and then chipped-in for birdie at the sixth from the left rough. After a near ace on the eighth came to rest just 21 inches for the gimme, his next scoring chance came from 5'4" at the par-5 13th but he missed left. He was outwardly dejected after another miss from 6'1" for birdie at the 14th and lost his composure squaring bogey at the par-5 16th. He righted the ship with a five-footer for birdie on 17 and then he earned his PGA TOUR card for next year by canning a 58'9" bomb on the last. Wilcox sits 88th in the FedExCup standings with just seven events remaining prior to the playoffs (including The Open). The 29-year-old's previous career-best was a T4 at the 2014 Greenbrier Classic.
Jul 19 - 9:15 PM

Will Wilcox rallied to a 6-under-par 35-30=65 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship to post 12-under 201, one shot back of joint-clubhouse leaders Scott Piercy and Ricky Barnes.

Wilcox began his third round at 6-under (T15) and three shots adrift. He exchanged one birdie with one bogey to turn even. The University of Alabama-Birmingham product rallied with a bogey-free inward half, augmenting an eagle at the par-5 16th with birdies at Nos. 10, 12, 13 and 17. Typically, his 39'4" birdie roll on 10 would be the highlight, or perhaps his 29-footer at 17, but his 61-foot sidewinder for the eagle-3 at 16 trumped all. His lone bogey came at the par-3 sixth, the result of a three-putt from 45 feet. Wilcox, 128th in the FedExCup standings, will be chasing a season-best T6 at the Puerto Rico Open. He's coming off a T8 at last week's John Deere Classic, his second top 10 in 2014-15 on 12 starts.
Jul 18 - 6:31 PM

Will Wilcox turned in a 5-under-par 32-34=66 for his opening round of the Barbasol Championship.

The Birmingham native has merely conditional status, but he's 128th in the FedExCup standings and trending heavily toward the Playoffs. He converted six birdies against one bogey at Grand National's Lake Course today before checking up just two strokes off the clubhouse lead. Three of his par breakers ranged 13-18 feet and his well-balanced stats reflect the kind of game he's been flashing in limited action this season. At last check, he ranked fourth in distance off the tee in the field of 130, T20 in greens hit (14), ninth in strokes gained: tee-to-green (2.915), 16th in strokes gained: putting (1.855) and T17 in putting (1.643).
Jul 16 - 7:23 PM

Will Wilcox signed for a 4-under-par 33-34=67 after today's final round of the John Deere Classic to conclude at 16-under 268, good for a four-way tie for eighth place.

Wilcox began the festivities at 12-under (T9) and five back of the 54-hole lead. He promptly slam dunked his approach from 113 yards out for the eagle-2 at the opener. The wave collapsed for the remainder of his inward half, trading one birdie at the par-4 fourth with one bogey at the par-4 ninth. The 29-year-old squared bogey at the par-4 15th with a three-putt from 32 feet, but offset it with three circles at Nos. 10, 13 and 17. Wilcox split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, but staggered in with -1.171 in strokes gained: putting after finishing in positive territory in that stat in the first three rounds. He also three-putted the ninth from just over 24 feet. This is Wilcox's second top 10 on the season (T6, Puerto Rico Open) in just 12 starts and his first cash in two trips to the Deere (MC/2014).
Jul 12 - 8:35 PM

Will Wilcox signed for a 2-under-par 33-36=69 after today's third round of the John Deere Classic and sits five strokes back at 12-under 201.

Wilcox began the day as part of a three-way T4 and two off the pace of 36-hole leader Justin Thomas. He hid two bogeys with four birdies in his fifth career round at the TPC Deere Run. In total, Wilcox striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation, registering a scant 0.023 in strokes gained: putting. The 29-year-old converted two shorties from inside five feet at the par-5 second and 17th and converted back-to-backs on Nos. 6 and 7 from 14'9" and 36'4" respectively. Although lift, clean and place was in effect, he had no other birdie looks from inside of 12 feet on the day. Wilcox missed the cut by four strokes at the 2014 Deere in his only other appearance. He's 7-for-11 on the season with a personal-best of T6 at the Puerto Rico Open, his lone top-10 finish.
Jul 11 - 11:08 PM

Will Wilcox tossed up a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in today's second round of the John Deere Classic to reach the break in 10-under 132, two shots off Justin Thomas' overnight lead.

After missing his last two cuts by a shot each, it's great to see Wilcox get back in the fast lane. He hit 15 greens and offset two bogeys with seven birdies at TPC Deere Run today. The set featured conversions from 11'1", 17'10" and 29'11" at Nos. 18, 4 and 8, respectively. Just as his profile suggests, he's executing in all facets of the game in the Quad Cities, but that the ball is dropping helps fuel the confidence to continue to do what he's doing on every full swing.
Jul 10 - 8:09 PM

Will Wilcox carded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in today's opening round of the John Deere Classic.

He just missed in his last two starts, falling outside the cut lines at TPC River Highlands and The Old White TPC by one swing, so it's good to see him rebound for early position at TPC Deere Run. Wilcox hit 14 greens in regulation and found three birdies, including a roll from 35-and-a-half feet at the par-4 fourth hole and from the rough eight yards away at the par-5 10th. But his highlight occurred at 569-yard, par-5 17th. After knocking his second to 72 yards from the cup, the 29-year-old jarred his third for eagle. Wilcox went on to sign his scorecard sitting only three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Jul 9 - 2:28 PM

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

The 29-year-old was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry following two withdrawals. Wilcox tied for fourth here in his debut last year. It's his best finish in 28 career PGA TOUR starts. He's currently 141st in the FedExCup standings in only 10 starts thanks to one top 10 and another four top 25s. As much as he's been contributing on conditional status and off the radar, he's a gem in all formats, but especially at The Old White TPC.
Jun 29 - 11:32 AM

Will Wilcox rallied for a 5-under-par 34-31=65 to polish off his second FedEx St. Jude Classic at 6-under 274.

Wilcox began the day at 1-under (T40) and eight shots off the lead. On his round he striped nine (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. The 29-year-old, who finished T19 in his SJC debut last year, offset two bogeys on his first nine with three birdies to turn in 1-under 34. After consecutive pars on Nos. 10-13, Wilcox put on a ball-striking display, starting with his approach on the par-3 13th that traveled 185 yards to come to rest 26 inches from the cup for the kick-in birdie. His approach at 14 settled in at 6'6" for another circle, and he put a stamp on the proceedings reaching the par-5 15th in two blows, dropping a 10'1" putt for eagle. Wilcox currently sits T7 on the live leaderboard, up 33 spots on the day.
Jun 14 - 2:47 PM

Will Wilcox suffered a MDF in his 2014 AT&T Byron Nelson Championship debut but returns this week for another look at TPC Four Seasons Resort.

The Alabama native posted rounds of 2-over 72 and 2-under 68 last year to make the weekend but slipped on Saturday with a 74 to miss the 54-hole cut. He arrives this week ranked 159th in the FedExCup after missing just two cuts in seven starts. Wilcox has impressed gamers with eight top 25s in his first 25 career PGA TOUR starts and that keeps him in the category of waiting to break out.
May 26 - 8:16 AM

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 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.
Apr 20 - 11:44 AM

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.
Mar 12 - 3:40 PM

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.
Mar 9 - 12:10 PM

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.
