Cameron Beckman manufactured 11 points in today's opening round of the Barracuda Championship.
The 45-year-old has everything to gain this week as he's outside the top 220 on TOUR in both FedExCup points and earnings. He found only nine greens in regulation, but figured out a way to seven birdies against three bogeys. He connected for consecutive birdies from off greens, first from a bunker 16 yards away at the par-4 fifth hole, and then from just off the putting surface, six yards away at the par-4 sixth. His longest conventional par breaker traveled 53 feet at the par-4 17th. Beckman even poured in a par save from 10'6" at the par-4 15th. It's the kind of display you'd expect from a guy with nothing to lose in a format that rewards going for broke. And now, he's only four points off the clubhouse lead. Aug 6 - 8:34 PM

Cameron Beckman has gained entry into this week's John Deere Classic.

Beckman started the week as the fifth alternate, and then wiggled in following two withdrawals. He'll be making his 15th appearance in this tournament. His first was in the last edition hosted by Oakwood Country Club in Coal Valley, Illinois, in 1999. All three of his top 25s at TPC Deere Run came consecutively (2007-2009), but he's gone 19 straight starts on the PGA TOUR sans a top-35 finish.
Jul 7 - 10:23 AM

TPC San Antonio member Cameron Beckman completed his 20th appearance at the Valero Texas Open in 7-over-par 71-72-79-73=295.

Currently T43, this would be his best finish on the PGA TOUR this year (in three events) and his best overall finish since this same event last year where he finished 2-over which was good for a T36. Similar to last year's VTO, where he opened in 69-70 and was T4 through 36 holes, Beckman was near the top again this year at T11 through two rounds. Unfortunately, much the same as last year, where he crashed to a third-round 79, he the suffered the same demise this year with a third-round 77, costing the local resident any hope of contending.
Mar 29 - 5:00 PM

Cameron Beckman walked to an even-par 35-37=72 in his second round of the Valero Texas Open.

If there's such a thing as the opposite of Moving Day, Beckman experienced it today. He didn't necessary make a stride toward victory, but he also didn't shoot himself out of the tournament. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation while trading three birdies for three bogeys. His most notable birdie dropped from 12'11" at the par-3 16th hole, but Beckman's longest conversion disappeared for par from 15'7" at the par-4 first where he made the turn. At 1-under 143, the local resident is just five strokes off the 36-hole lead.
Mar 27 - 7:02 PM

Cameron Beckman submitted a 1-under-par 35-36=71 for his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Beckman doesn't warrant fantasy value anymore -- not that he had much in his glory days, anyway -- but this is a home game. He lives just a couple of minutes away from TPC San Antonio where he went 5-for-9 in scoring opportunities for five birdies today. His longest birdie traveled 26'10" at the par-3 seventh hole. The better of Beckman's two paydays in five starts on the track is but a T36 last year when he opened 69-70 in arguably better conditions.
Mar 26 - 7:11 PM

Cameron Beckman competes in his 20th Valero Texas Open thanks to a sponsor exemption this week.

Beckman has played every edition of the VTO dating back to 1997 without fail, also teeing it up in 1993. He's missed 10 cuts and never cracked the top 10, but his loyalty to this event is admirable. Though he was born in Minnesota, he went to college at Texas Lutheran University, possibly explaining the love affair on both ends. He's missed three of his four cuts on TOUR this season, so there are not really any reasons to invest.
Mar 24 - 9:19 PM

Cameron Beckman has been added to the published field of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

The three-time PGA TOUR winner was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was given a tee time thanks to six withdrawals. Beckman missed the cut in both of his starts in the fall. He's gone 16 consecutive starts on the TOUR without a top 35 (dating back to July of 2013). Perhaps this week's action will be boosted by the fact that he'll celebrate his 45th birthday on Sunday.
Feb 9 - 11:07 AM

Cameron Beckman settled for a 3-over-par 37-36=73 at Brunswick (Ga.) Country Club in this week's open qualifier for The McGladrey Classic.

The three-time PGA TOUR winner squared three bogeys and failed to pick off a par breaker to finish seven swings adrift of the five-way playoff needed to send the final two into the tournament proper. Other notables that failed to survive include: 66 (lost in playoff)--Marc Turnesa; Casey Wittenberg ... 68--D.J. Trahan; Patrick Sheehan; Ben Kohles; Todd Demsey ... 69--Justin Bolli; Brad Adamonis; Brad Elder; Darron Stiles ... 70--Chris Smith; Cliff Kresge; Kyle Thompson; Paul Claxton; Edward Loar ... 71--Jeff Klauk; David Branshaw ... 72--Kevin Johnson ... 73--Len Mattiace; Frank Lickliter II; Jamie Lovemark; Bubba Dickerson ... 74--Nick O'Hern; Gavin Coles; Tommy Biershenk.

Cameron Beckman has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Beckman was the sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He should have risen to first alternate with the first wave of withdrawals, but Jason Gore also withdrew as second alternate. Beckman tied for 76th at the John Deere two weeks ago, but he's 203rd in FedExCup points and 209th in earnings. While seemingly always a threat to make a charge, he doesn't belong on any fantasy roster.

Cameron Beckman shot a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

We never learned why he called it quits halfway into his second round in Memphis two weeks ago, but his owners will appreciate today's rapid recovery. Beckman hit 12 greens and circled five birdies against three bogeys at TPC River Highlands. His par breakers included a five-yard hole-out from the rough five yards away at the sixth hole and conventional conversions of 11'6" and 17 feet at Nos. 3 and 17, respectively. He's six strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Cameron Beckman has been added to the published field of this week's Travelers Championship.

Beckman was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when David Toms withdrew. Beckman withdrew midway through his second round of the St. Jude two weeks ago, but an explanation wasn't made available. Always capable of a shocking success, he's 6-for-10 at TPC River Highlands, but hasn't cashed since 2007 (T61) and has never cracked the top 30. Zero top 35s among three paydays in seven starts this season on Past Champion status.

Cameron Beckman withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Classic during his second round.

Beckman went off the 10th tee and submitted a 2-over-par 37 on his opening nine before calling it quits. With a 6-over 76 already on the board, he was 8-over through 27 holes and in serious jeopardy of having the weekend off anyway. This drops him to 3-for-7 on the season and still without a top 35. He arrived in Memphis ranked 193rd in FedExCup points. It an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you. Beckman did not qualify for the U.S. Open.

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

He started the week as the 10th alternate, but snuck into the field of 156 when Seung-yul Noh withdrew today. Beckman has teed it up in each of the last 15 editions of the SJC, but he's missed nine cuts and fared no better than T29 in 2009. Saddled with Past Champion status this season, he's 3-for-6 with no top 35s. There are times when he makes sense at the back end of DFS rosters, but this isn't one of them.

Cameron Beckman has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Beckman started the week as the 10th alternate and rose to No. 3 on Wednesday, but gained entry when Charlie Beljan withdrew and the first two alternates weren't on site to accept the berth. (First-alternate Ben Kohles is in the field at the WNB Golf Classic on the Tour. Jason Gore was second alternate and not playing the WNB.) This is Beckman's fourth start of the season. He's cashed thrice but hasn't posted a top 35. Meanwhile, fog delayed the first round by 20 minutes. As a result, the first ball wasn't aloft until 7:20 a.m. CT.

Cameron Beckman somehow posted a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in his second round of the Valero Texas Open despite hitting only seven greens in regulation.

Talk about squeezing every ounce of scoring from a round. He suffered only one bogey while finding three late birdies, including a conversion from 17'7" at the par-3 16th hole. He maintained momentum with par saves of 14'8" and 12 feet at Nos. 10 and 15, respectively. Beckman reached the break in 5-under 139, but can't expect another performance like this tomorrow if his irons don't catch fire. He's currently two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
