Peter Lonard has been added to the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Lonard was the 11th alternate at the start of the week. He gained entry due to eight withdrawals this morning. The Aussie has been a regular on the Nationwide Tour this year, cashing in six of nine starts with three top 25s. His only cut made in two starts on the PGA TOUR was a solo 67th in Puerto Rico. In his only start at TPC Southwind, he placed T59 in 2009.

Peter Lonard has been added to the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open. UPDATE: Lonard was removed from the field this afternoon.

The Aussie was listed as the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when four guys withdrew this morning. Since his recovery from dual surgeries in 2010, he's played rather well when he's been able to tee it up. Lonard is just 1-for-2 on the PGA TOUR this year, but he's a deep sleeper as we enter the point of the schedule that boasts the largest fields of the year. According to his website, he'll likely tee it up again at next week's South Georgia Classic on the Nationwide Tour.

Peter Lonard was added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

A superb return to the PGA TOUR last week. He shared ninth place at the Viking to earn an exemption at the RBC via the top 10. Given his year off and sudden success, he's playing on house money, which makes him dangerous. However, the challenge and depth of field in Canada will be a better indicator of his current form.

Peter Lonard carded a second round of 7-under-par 65 and holds a share of the lead at the Viking Classic.

Leonard played his opening nine in even-par fashion, but then he caught on first on the back nine with seven birdies and no blemishes. His putting continues to shine as Lonard took 27 putts in the second round and he currently is ranked number one in putts per round this week.

Peter Lonard crafted a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of the Viking Classic, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

Lonard turns 44 years of age on Sunday, but he might be feeling like he's dipped into the Fountain of Youth recently. After a lost 2010 due to surgeries on his right hip and left knee that we chronicled in depth for you, he's the ultimate sleeper this week in what is his first start on the PGA TOUR since the season-ending stop at Disney in 2009. He's posted top 20s in his last two starts on the Nationwide Tour, signifying that things are beginning to click again for the one-time PGA TOUR winner. He hit only 12 greens at Annandale today, but needed only 23 putts. Four of his eight birdies found the cup from beyond 10 feet, including one from seven yards on the fringe at the 10th hole and another from 15 yards out on the fairway fronting the green at the 16th.

Peter Lonard was one of 20 to successfully advance to the final stage of Q School after a 1-under-par 71-70-72-70=283 in the second stage at Hombre Golf Club in Panama City Beach, Florida.

The Aussie is recovering from dual surgeries this year, so this is major step. South Korea's Seong Ho Lee was the medalist at 9-under 275. Other notables that survived: former PGA TOUR winners, Dicky Pride (276), Glen Day (277) and Guy Boros (282). Veteran members, Skip Kendall and Omar Uresti, also advanced with 278s, as did former PGA TOUR members, Darron Stiles (277), Tim Wilkinson (281), Nicholas Thompson (281), Craig Bowden (281), Brent Delahoussaye (281), Geoffrey Sisk (282) and Greg Owen (283). Erik Compton (280) also survived. Notables that missed the cut: PGA TOUR winners Brett Wetterich (287; still has one start on his Major Medical Extension), Len Mattiace (291) and Bob Burns (291). Former PGA TOUR members, Ken Duke (286), Jason Buha (286), Scott Sterling (287), Paul Claxton (288), Andrew McLardy (289), Ben Bates (289), Rick Price (292), Clark Dennis (295), Steve Wheatcroft (297) and Shane Bertsch (298; will have medical extension in the reshuffle category) fell short.

Peter Lonard carded an even-par 38-33=71 in his opening round of the second stage of Q School at Hombre GC in Panama City Beach, Florida on Wednesday.

The news here isn't so much that he's at Q School as it is that he honored his commitment to tee it up. Given the state of his health this year, every start is a gift. Of the 73 that completed one round, the top 19 and ties will advance to the final stage in two weeks.

Peter Lonard carded a 2-under-par 68 in the opening round of the 36-hole Merewether Regal Mazda Pro-Am in Australia today.

Lonard started his comeback trail from right hip and left knee surgeries with a birdie at the first hole today. "I was as nervous as I’ve nearly ever been, standing on the first tee," he said. "It’s been a while since my last competitive round. The gallery was big enough (about 50 people) so that I felt I had to be on my game. It felt like I was playing tournament golf. I struck the ball pretty well and my back held up OK. It’s a bit stiff but as good as could be expected and I’m looking forward to tomorrow. I think I’ll wake up fine and have no issues with it, so today’s been a good first step." We likely won't see the Aussie in the U.S. until the second stage of Q School at Hombre GC in Panama City Beach, Florida on Nov. 17-20.

Peter Lonard will tee it up at the Merewether Regal Mazda Pro-Am in Australia on Oct. 12-13.

The event was rescheduled for next week following a rain-out in August. Lonard's next meaningful appearance in the U.S. is likely to occur at Hombre Golf Club in Panama City Beach, Florida on Nov. 17-20. It's one of the six sites for the second stage of Q School.

Peter Lonard has withdrawn from the Nationwide Tour's WNB Golf Classic.

Lonard's web site posted a new entry dated September 19, stating that Lonard has decided not to arrive in the U.S. for at least another month. "I had thought there may be opportunities to get starts," Lonard said, "but it is looking increasingly unlikely so will stay here and continue to work on my fitness, maybe play a couple of pro-ams then head over in late October. [PGA TOUR] Qualifying [School] at my venue begins on November 17th in Panama City in the north of Florida so will head over and get myself sorted a few weeks prior to that." Therefore, we are unlikely to see the Aussie until then. He has Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR, but sits far enough down in the pecking order that it's possible that the only event for which he'd qualify on merit is next week's Viking Classic.

Peter Lonard is listed in the published field of next week's WNB Golf Classic on the Nationwide Tour.

If he honors this commitment, it will be his first live action since early February. (He has not updated his web site since August 7.) The Aussie had surgery on his right hip and left knee earlier this year. He lost his PGA TOUR card following the 2010 season.
