Scott Gardiner pieced together a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Gardiner's appearance in the first-ever WinCo is his first anywhere since an illness forced him out before his second round of the John Deere Classic six weeks ago. Today's return made it seem like he had zero rust to shed. He split 10 (of 13) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation en route to four birdies against one bogey. The Aussie will be attempting to regain his PGA TOUR status at the Tour Finals that commence next week. Aug 21 - 5:45 PM

Scott Gardiner is listed in the published field of next week's WinCo Foods Portland Open on the Tour.

The Aussie hasn't competed anywhere since withdrawing during the John Deere Classic with an illness. However, after appearing in the field at this week's Wyndham Championship, he was removed on Monday. So, either the illness is quite serious or there's more to it if not originally misclassified. Gardiner will qualify for the Tour Finals, but he won't be a favorite to survive.
Aug 15 - 7:24 PM

Scott Gardiner has been removed from the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Well, he'd have been a wing and a prayer to crack the top 125 in FedExCup points. Currently 186th, the Aussie will settle for a spot in the Tour Finals. He hadn't competed since the John Deere Classic where he withdrew prior to the second round with an illness. Overall, he went just 6-for-18 with on top 35 in his return trip to the PGA TOUR.
Aug 11 - 12:34 PM

Scott Gardiner is listed in the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

The Aussie will be looking to play out the string of the regular season. He last competed at the John Deere Classic where he withdrew before the second round with an illness. Gardiner sits outside the top 180 in both FedExCup points and earnings.
Aug 8 - 7:13 PM

Scott Gardiner was removed from the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Gardiner had to withdraw prior to his second round of the John Deere with an illness. He's currently 182nd in FedExCup points and 180th in earnings. Suffice it to say that the Tour Finals are reserving a spot.
Jul 21 - 11:22 AM

Scott Gardiner is listed in the published field of next week's RBC Canadian Open.

The Aussie had to call it quits before his second round in the Quad Cities last week due to an illness. As a result, he fell to 180th in both FedExCup points and earnings. So, while a spot in the Tour Finals is all but a lock, he can still make a move toward the Playoffs or at least conditional status as a safety net.

Scott Gardiner withdrew prior to his second round of the John Deere Classic due to an illness.

He opened with a 7-over-par 40-38=78 with three birdies, five bogeys, one double and a triple. The Aussie is in no position to shoot high numbers at this stage of the season, much less withdraw from tournaments, so this is a tough pill to swallow. Today's decision drops him to 6-for-18 on the season. He entered the week just inside the top 180 in both FedExCup points and earnings.
Jul 11 - 11:28 AM

Scott Gardiner is back in town for his second crack at The Greenbrier Classic.

The Aussie missed the cut in 2013 on his first trip to The Old White TPC. His 2013-14 season isn't going all that well, ranking 176th in the FedExCup standings and having made five of 16 cuts. He's missed three of his last four cuts, so something has to improve quickly if he is to retain his status for 2014-15.
Jul 1 - 9:15 PM

Scott Gardiner missed the cut in his FedEx St. Jude Classic debut but found his way back this week for another crack at TPC Southwind.

The Aussie averages just under 286 yards off the tee, ranking 120th on TOUR, and ranks 153rd in strokes gained-putting. Overpowering TPC Southwind has proven to be the best method of success in the past, but a remarkable week putting can also do the trick. Gardiner possesses neither skill, and it will take a statistical aberration for him to contend this week.
Jun 4 - 9:44 AM

Scott Gardiner makes his second trip to the Wells Fargo Championship this week.

Gardiner tied for 22nd in his maiden voyage to Quail Hollow in 2013, representing his second-best start of last season. That brings hope of a big payday this time around, but it should be noted that the greens at Quail Hollow were below PGA TOUR standards last year. With the greens back to their normal pristine condition, it could play as a completely different golf course this time around.
Apr 29 - 9:13 PM

Scott Gardiner has been added to the published field of this week's Shell Houston Open.

Gardiner started the week as the fourth alternate, but gained entry when Scott Verplank withdrew. The Aussie is 166th in FedExCup points with three paydays, including a T13 at Pebble Beach. He missed the cut in his debut at the SHO last year.
Apr 1 - 1:48 PM

Scott Gardiner is back for his second try at the Valero Texas Open this week.

The Aussie failed to make the cut last year in his first attempt at TPC San Antonio. Gardiner has a very undesirable ratio of seven missed cuts to only two cuts made in 2014. That leaves him in danger of sliding down the reshuffle rankings in two weeks.
Mar 25 - 10:43 PM

Scott Gardiner had himself an unusual day in his second-round, 1-over-par 35-38=73 on the host course of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

It's not every day that a touring professional finds all 14 fairways but hits only nine greens in regulation, but it happened to the Aussie today. He buried five birdies, including a 17'1" conversion at the par-5 18th hole, but wiped them off with four bogeys and an opening double at the par-4 10th. It could have been worse, too, as he needed a par attempt to drop from 10'10" to close at the par-4 ninth. Gardiner is 5-under 138, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead in relation to par. He'll wrap up his rotation at Spyglass Hill in the third round.
Feb 7 - 6:43 PM

Scott Gardiner shot a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course.

Even with ball-in-hand today, this is a solid number. It's also his lowest (by three strokes) of 18 rounds this season. Gardiner missed only two (of 13) fairways and two greens in regulation en route to seven birdies before closing with a bogey-5 at the 18th hole. With only one payday in seven starts this season, he's not on anyone's radar, but he's flashed promise at times, especially in the Tour Finals where he bracketed that four-event series with top-threes. The Aussie will have a hand at the host course in Friday's second round.
Feb 6 - 8:38 PM

Scott Gardiner was a rookie on the PGA TOUR in 2013, but failed to retain his playing privileges via the FedExCup standings or the money list.

Seemingly not bothered, Gardiner dropped down to the Tour Finals for four tournaments and easily earned a return trip with a T3 at the Hotel Fitness Championship and a T2 at the Tour Championship. It shouldn't be a surprise that he struggled to acclimate himself on TOUR in 2013 if you stop to consider his Tour history. He needed 199 starts on the junior circuit before earning the call up to the big leagues, suggesting it takes him a little while to reach a comfort zone. He made one of four cuts to start the new season, so his success in the Finals didn't seem to carry over.
