Kevin Foley is dropping back down to the Tour this week to defend his title in the Panama Claro Championship.
Foley's rookie season on the PGA TOUR isn't exactly a ringing success to this point, making just two of four cuts and ranking 194th in the FedExCup standings. Considering the PGA TOUR season is nearing the half-way point, he's struggled to pick up valuable starts. At this rate, it could become necessary for him to make more than just the random Tour start as a way to try and ensure his spot in the 2014 Finals. All signs point to him struggling to retain his PGA TOUR card this season. Mar 19 - 9:25 PM

Kevin Foley has been added to the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Foley was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry thanks to four withdrawals this morning. The PGA TOUR rookie tied for 72nd place (MDF) at the Sony Open in Hawaii in what was his debut on the circuit. With start hard to find at the bottom of the graduate reshuffle, the pressure is on to capitalize at Torrey Pines.

Kevin Foley's third round of the Sony Open resulted in a 1-over-par 35-36=71, as he completed 54 holes in even-par 210 and missed the secondary cut for the final round on the nubmer.

Joining Foley on the beach and under an umbrella for the final round are Scott Verplank (210), John Huh (210), Miguel Angel Carballo (210), Toshinori Muto (210), Ken Duke (210), Eric Dugas (211) and Joe Durant (212). That leaves 71 players with a tee time in the final round.

Kevin Foley submitted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Not only did this kick off his 2013-14 rookie season, but this was his first-ever round in a PGA TOUR event. Foley split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation en route to four birdies and a closing eagle-3 from 26 yards off the green at the ninth hole. His most notable birdies measured 25 feet at 13 and 12'5" at 7. He also swallowed three bogeys, but he couldn't ask for a better foray overall. He signed his card sitting four strokes in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Kevin Foley is a member of the 2013-14 PGA TOUR via his top-25 finish on the Tour regular season money list.

Quite frankly, his prospects as a rookie aren't looking good for several reasons. For starters, he failed to secure a strong number coming out of the Finals and still hasn't nabbed a tee time in an event. Having never played a PGA TOUR tournament before, the wait has to be unbearable. Perhaps the biggest issue could be his performance overall. He won the first event of the 2013 Tour season, but missed 15 of his remaining 22 cuts with just one other top 10.

Kevin Foley turned in a 5-over-par 40-35=75 at Brunswick (Ga.) Country Club in the four-spotter for The McGladrey Classic, seven strokes too high to join the playoff for the final two spots into the tournament proper.

The rookie has never competed in a PGA TOUR event, which means the final chance to make his debut before the holiday break will come next week in México. He erased two birdies with three bogeys and two doubles at the OQ. Other notables that failed to qualify include: 69--Mark Anderson; Robert Streb; Tag Ridings; Paul Claxton ... 70--Alex Prugh; Billy Mayfair; Rod Pampling; Frank Lickliter II; Nick O'Hern; Jeff Klauk; Michael Letzig; Bubba Dickerson ... 71--Jamie Lovemark; Marc Turnesa; Glen Day; Robert Gamez; Brad Elder; Henrik Norlander ... 72--Andrew Loupe; Doug LaBelle II; Patrick Sheehan; Chris Wilson ... 73--Ben Kohles; Dicky Pride; David Mathis; Craig Kanada; Michael Connell ... 74--Jim Renner; Lee Janzen; Chris Smith; Skip Kendall ... 75--Tim Wilkinson; Tim Petrovic; Len Mattiace ... 76--Bronson La'Cassie; Joe Ogilvie; Donald Constable ... 78--Guy Boros.

Kevin Foley came from behind to earn his first Tour victory at the Panama Claro Championship thanks to a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round.

Foley hung around the leaderboard all week after an opening 66, finishing the tournament at 8-under 66-69-70-67=272. He stepped on the par-4 18th in a tie at 7-under with 54-hole leader Mathew Goggin, who was playing in the group behind. Foley circled a clutch birdie, while Goggin could only settle for a par. The win is Foley's first on the Tour, and comes a year after he played his way onto the Tour having begun 2012 with no status. It also virtually assures him of finishing inside the top 75 on the year-end money list, meaning he will be part of the four-tournament race for a 2013-2014 PGA TOUR card.
