Patrick Rodgers has crashed the field of this week's Quicken Loans National.
Rodgers was given a sponsor exemption to compete. It'll be the 15th start of the season for the PGA TOUR rookie with Special Temporary Membership. He'd rank 122nd in the FedExCup standings among members. He's also 17th on the Tour money list. If he finishes inside the top 125 with non-member FedExCup points on the PGA TOUR and inside the top 25 in earnings on the Tour, Rodgers will be fully exempt via the format on the PGA TOUR next season and one less card will be available at the Tour Finals. If he achieves the double, he'll be the first since the new qualifying process was created. It's also relevant to add that all golfers who are already fully exempt for the following season on the PGA TOUR are no longer allowed to participate in the Tour Finals. Jul 27 - 1:23 PM

Patrick Rodgers has climbed into the field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie and Special Temporary Member was ninth alternate when the field was released on Friday, but was given a ticket for entry via a sponsor exemption. Rodgers is still cutting his teeth at the game's highest level, so despite his sudden cachet, gamers are advised to let him come to them, not the opposite. His co-runner-up at Quail Hollow remains his only top 25 among nine paydays in 13 starts this season. Glen Abbey will cater to a tactical approach tee-to-green, so the 23-year-old may be out of his comfort zone.

Patrick Rodgers trotted around TPC Deere Run in 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the John Deere Classic.

He did so with a sore throat due to tonsillitis, but that's one of the maladies that gamers can accept since it doesn't influence the golf swing. After parring the par-4 first hole, Rodgers converted an eagle from 23'1" at the par-5 second. He'd collect six birdies thereafter, including a pair from just outside 10 feet, but went just 1-for-5 in scrambling with four bogeys. The PGA TOUR Rookie checked up four shots adrift of the overnight co-leaders.

Patrick Rodgers revealed that he has tonsillitis.

A "pretty bad" case of the throat infection notwithstanding, Rodgers is scheduled to go off the first tee at TPC Deere Run at 1:10 p.m. CT for Thursday's opening round. "They had to give me a shot," he said. "I don’t really like shots. I’m kind of a weenie when it comes to that stuff. But it was definitely worth it. I feel better today despite how bad I sound." The PGA TOUR rookie has been riding the wave of his T2 at Quail Hollow in mid-May, but he's yet to land another top 25 in 18 other starts as a professional on the PGA TOUR. His only other top 25 came as an amateur at TPC Deere Run in 2013; he tied for 15th. Rodgers missed the cut in his other two trips to the Quad Cities.

Patrick Rodgers reached the halfway point of The Greenbrier Classic in 7-under-par 68-65=133 and sits just two strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

After his bogey-free opener in which he landed 15 greens in regulation, Rodgers tallied another 15 GIR today. He smothered a lone bogey (at the par-4 sixth hole) with six birdies, four of which on his last seven holes. Three of the par breakers found the cup from outside 11 feet, the longest stretching 24'2" at the par-4 third hole. While he has Special Temporary Membership and is a rookie on the PGA TOUR, Rodgers is still chasing his second top 25. That's how far that co-runner-up at Quail Hollow has gone at shaping his early experience as a touring professional.
Jul 3 - 5:42 PM

Patrick Rodgers received a sponsor exemption to compete in this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The PGA TOUR rookie added a T39 at the Travelers Championship to his slate, but he still has just the lone top 25, albeit a T2 at Quail Hollow. With 408.38 non-member FedExCup points in the bank, he'd rank 107th among members, so he's in comfortable position to earn fully exempt status. Rodgers is also 10th on the Tour money list, so he has a real-time contingency plan in play. His fantasy value is still very much down the road, but keeper leagues are encouraged to make room if you already haven't.

Patrick Rodgers spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-30=63 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to post 9-under 201, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Rodgers made the 36-hole cut on the number at 2-under on rounds of 68-70. He began the day in a 14-way bunch at T59 and nine shots off the lead of Bubba Watson. The 22-year-old --who celebrates his birthday in three days on the 30th-- packaged himself a nice, early present by hitting eight (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation. Rodgers, who made his professional debut at the 2014 Travelers (T46), circled seven birdies on his round, including three of his last four and four of his last six. Six of his conversions came from eight feet and in, saving his highlight reel for the par-4 18th, rolling in a 22'6" sidewinder to close in style.

Patrick Rodgers has accepted the final sponsor exemption into this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

We always lean on the published field for accuracy -- well, almost always -- but Rodgers alerted his followers on Twitter about his plans, anyway. He wrote, "Toughest 9 points [to secure Special Temporary Membership] of my career I'm sure. Excited for the rest of the season and getting back into contention. Now off to Memphis!" What's mildly interesting is how many mainstream outlets and even Rodgers were under the impression that he needed nine FedExCup points for STM instead of the actual 7.88. Regardless, any tournament would like to have him in its field this summer, so his new target are the top 125 in FedExCup points and earnings, both as a non-member. While he now has STM, unless he wins, he is not eligible for the Playoffs.

With a nine-way share of 40th place at the Memorial, Patrick Rodgers has qualified for Special Temporary Membership.

Rodgers entered the week just 7.88 FedExCup points shy of the target for Special Temporary Membership. He collected 27. With 341.88 on the season, that would place him 114th among members, so he's not a lock to secure his 2015-16 PGA TOUR card via non-member FedExCup points, but he'd rank 94th among members with $715,993. The top 125 in both measurements are fully exempt next season, but he's also sixth in Tour earnings. Once STM is official, he's eligible for unlimited sponsor exemptions, unlimited starts and a spot in the Beyond 150 Reshuffle, a category into which the field for this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic was needed to help fill it. "Even though this is temporary status, I still need to get sponsor exemptions to play out here," he said. "So I’ve been fortunate to have plenty of opportunities so far, and I need more to reach my dream of playing out here next year."
Jun 7 - 8:28 PM

Patrick Rodgers checked up at the halfway point of the Memorial in 9-under-par 69-66=135, three strokes off the 36-hole lead.

Rodgers exhausted his last sponsor exemption at Colonial, but he played last week's Nelson on a top-10 exemption from the Wells Fargo Championship. His berth into the Memorial was as a result of winning the 2014 Jack Nicklaus Award. This was also his last guaranteed start to make a run at qualifying for Special Temporary Membership [STM] for which he needs 7.88 FedExCup points. He'll achieve it with a solo 63rd at Muirfield Village. Suffice it to say that he's on his way tied for fifth at the break. Today's round featured eight birdies, five of which ranging 10-19 feet. He's totaled 27 greens in regulation and 13 birdies. Should he achieve STM, he'll be eligible for unlimited sponsor exemptions and starts, and will also be slotted in the Beyond 150 reshuffle for the remainder of the season.
Jun 5 - 7:11 PM

Patrick Rodgers shot 2-over-par 72-69-71=212 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing in a five-way share of 74th place.

He needed no worse than a solo 62nd to qualify for Special Temporary Membership. Instead, Rodgers will take his talents to this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship needing 7.88 FedExCup points to hit the target. That would require no worse than a solo 63rd in the 156-man field. He has 314.88 non-member FedExCup points and has exhausted all seven sponsor exemptions, but his berth at TPC Four Seasons was as a result of his top 10 at Quail Hollow last week. The 22-year-old is also exempt into the Memorial in two weeks as the 2014 recipient of the Jack Nicklaus Award.
May 24 - 7:06 PM

Patrick Rodgers concluded the Wells Fargo Championship with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 to secure a co-runner-up with Webb Simpson at 14-under 274.

While avid golf fans and most gamers were aware of Rodgers entering the tournament, this was the week when casual fans were introduced in earnest. After navigating The Green Mile in bogey-free 3-under in the first three rounds, he closed par-double bogey-bogey today, but the 22-year-old had already converted an eagle from 20'4" at the par-5 10th hole to highlight eight par breakers. His longest birdie ran 15 feet at the par-5 15th. For the week, Rodgers scored 14-under on the par 5s to co-lead the field with Sunday's playing partner, Justin Thomas. Rodgers collected 245 non-member FedExCup points. With 314 on the season, he's just 8.76 shy of qualifying for Special Temporary Membership. To secure it at Colonial this week, he'd need only a solo 62nd. Today's top 10 also exempts him into the Byron Nelson the week after if he accepts it.
May 17 - 6:16 PM

Patrick Rodgers conjured up a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship and enters the final frame at 10-under 206, eight shots off the pace of the 54-hole leader.

Rodgers, playing this week on a sponsor's exemption, began the day in a two-way tie for third at 8-under. On the round, he managed six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation en route to a three birdie, one bogey loop at Quail Hollow Club. His lone hiccup came at No. 8 where he squared bogey-5 despite sitting in the fairway just 12 feet from the hole in two. The 23-year-old converted on three of 11 scoring opportunities with each of this three circles coming from inside of eight feet.
May 16 - 7:56 PM

Patrick Rodgers tossed up another 4-under-par 68 in today's second round of the Wells Fargo Championship to touch 8-under 136 at the midpoint, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Martin Flores.

Rodgers went off the 10th tee at Quail Hollow today and carded respective nines of 33 and 35. He went 5-for-14 in scoring chances with five birdies, the longest measuring 14'2" at the par-4 16th hole. His only blemish was a walk-off bogey at the par-4 ninth. At last check, he ranked third in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with an aggregate clip of 6.976. Everything he provides at this point is gravy. Should he finish inside the top 10, Rodgers will earn an exemption into the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship in two weeks. Not only would it yield another start on the PGA TOUR, but it wouldn't take a bit out of his seven allotted sponsor exemptions. This week's is his sixth.
May 15 - 2:18 PM

Patrick Rodgers signed for a 4-under-par 34-34=68 following his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship, finishing three strokes adrift of the overnight lead.

Rodgers is sitting out the Tour's BMW Charity Pro-Am in favor of a sponsor exemption at Quail Hollow. He made the most of it with six birdies against two bogeys, the first of which a three-putt at the par-3 second hole. The 22-year-old connected for a pair of birdies from 15-18 feet as well as a zero-putt four-yarder from the fringe at the par-5 10th. He was the last of 12 golfers to complete the day inside the top 10 on the leaderboard. Incidentally, thanks to a win in Colombia in February, Rodgers sits third on the money list on the Tour. Therefore, we're getting close to the time of the season when keeper leagues may want to consider how their going to make room for the stud from Stanford on the 2015-16 PGA TOUR.
