J.J. Killeen opened the Open with a 4-under-par 33-34=67.
The PGA TOUR rookie and 2011 Tour earnings leaders has taken advantage of his spot exempt from the reshuffle, amassing 30 starts, but he's failed to capitalize. Killeen arrived at CordeValle ranked 154th on the money list, but perhaps this is the week when everything clicks. He hit 12 greens today and converted six birdies, including rolls from 21'8" and 12'1" at the third and fifth holes, respectively. He circled half of his birdies on the trio of par 5s, and the signed his card while sitting five strokes back of the overnight lead. Thu, Oct 11, 2012 09:20:00 PM

It’s no surprise that J.J. Killeen is scheduled to tee it up at the Open this week.

The top player on the 2011 Tour money list has enjoyed the luxury of setting his schedule this year, and has already played in 30 events. Having made just 14 cuts with a lone top 10 at the True South Classic, Killeen needs to take advantage of his last few starts if he is to improve his position on the money list from 154th to inside the top 125. He’s struggled to find looks at birdie this year, landing just 59.28 percent of his greens in regulation.

J.J. Killeen posted a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the True South Classic to finish the week at 17-under 271.

J.J. Killeen settled for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the True South Classic, and he enters the final round at 13-under 203.

His six birdies were offset by three bogeys, including a disappointing one on the par-5 18th as his short game let him down. He landed 14 GIR, but needed 29 putts to tour Annandale Golf Club. He will try and nab his first top 10 and second top 25 of his rookie season in the finale.

J.J. Killeen backed up his opening 66 at the True South Classic with a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in his second round to reach the halfway point in 10-under 134, three strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The second round resumed at 11:02 a.m. CT. Killeen was the fourth to post double digits under par. He hit 13 greens in regulation in his second loop of Annandale Golf Club and buried five birdies, including rolls from 13'2" and 10'7" at the eighth and ninth holes, respectively.

J.J. Killeen spun a 6-under-par 35-31=66 in his opening round of the True South Classic to establish the very early clubhouse lead.

Well, this is a welcome surprise. The rookie is making his PGA TOUR-high 26th start this week, but he's logged only one top 25. Killeen held a clinic in how to hole out from everywhere at Annandale today. He rolled in five birdies, four of which from 11 feet or beyond. The most notable were conversions from 31 feet and 28'4" at the 16th and first holes, respectively. He also jarred a greenside bunker shot from 18 yards for eagle at the par-5 fifth. And for good measure, he poured in a par save from 10'4" at 12. It's his lowest aggregate in an opening round on the circuit.

J.J. Killeen has yet to record a top 10 on the PGA TOUR but hopes that will change at The Greenbrier Classic.

The 2011 Tour grad has given himself a bounty of opportunities, teeing it up 23 times already. Some may question if more rest would be wise. After making only one cut between the Transitions Championship and THE PLAYERS, his performance has begun to improve. Starting with the Byron Nelson and running through the AT&T National, he's cashed in four of six events with a T27 at the FedEx St. Jude the highlight.

J.J. Killeen will tee it up for the 20th time this season at the Memorial.

Plenty of debate can be had as to the wisdom of the high number of starts the 2011 Nationwide Tour money leader is taking on, as his lone top 25 came in March and was a T14 in Puerto Rico. He's coming off his best finish since that tournament, as he posted a T37 at Colonial to barely crack the $200k mark in earnings for the year. If he doesn't keep his card, it wouldn't be from a lack of giving himself opportunities.

The opening round of the Shell Houston Open was suspended due to inclement weather at 1:27 p.m. CT.

Lightning was in the area. It is not known how long the delay will last. Rookie J.J. Killeen was scheduled to go off the first tee with J.J. Henry and David Hearn at 1:30 p.m. This is Killeen's twelfth consecutive start dating back to the full-field season-opener at Waialae. Despite leading the PGA TOUR in starts, he's a mere 117th in FedExCup Points.

J.J. Killeen has been added to the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The rookie has played in every event for which he's been eligible this year. Therefore, the API will mark his eleventh straight week on the road. He missed the cut at last week's Transitions by six strokes. He's 5-for-10 overall with one top 30.

J.J. Killeen missed the cut with a 5-over 70-77=147 total at the Transitions Championship

Killeen was making his 10th consecutive start and it appears the lack of rest could be starting to take its toll. For the week, hit only hit 18/36 GIR and had a below average putting stat of 1.889. He is listed as the first alternate in next week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

J.J. Killeen will be playing for the 10th week in a row at the Transitions Championship.

It's a little bit of a head-scratcher that last year's Nationwide Tour leading money winner hasn't taken a week off to recharge his batteries considering he's fully exempt and doesn't have to bother with a reshuffle. That said, he's coming off his best finish of 2012 in Puerto Rico. Still, this run of events could have long-term consequences as the season wears on.

J.J. Killeen doesn't have to worry about a reshuffle since he finished first on the 2011 Nationwide Tour money list, but he's teeing it up at the Puerto Rico Open anyway.

It would have been understandable if Killeen felt the need to take a week off since he has yet to do so this season. He's made four of eight cuts on the year, but missed three of his last four. Time will tell if he's fresh enough to contend in Puerto Rico.
