Peter Malnati is set to make his debut at Sedgefield Country Club this week in the Wyndham Championship.
Malnati enters the week with missed cuts in nine of his last 10 events. The rookie has cuts made in just four events during in inaugural campaign. Sitting with 166 FedExCup points, ranked 178th in the standings, Malnati is an extreme longshot to make the Playoffs, and can generally be avoided by all gamers this week.

Peter Malnati turns his attention to TPC Deere Run this week as his makes his John Deere Classic debut.

The PGA TOUR rookie has been hit or miss this year, with 10 missed cuts in 14 events, but three of his cuts made have turned into top 20s. Malnati currently ranks 68th in birdie or better conversion percentage as he breaks par 29.78% of the time he hits a green in regulation. With large greens and a weak field this week, look for this skill to be very useful. Consider Malnati an off the radar sleeper that should only be used in the deepest of formats.

Peter Malnati settled for an even-par 33-37=70 in the third round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to remain at 7-under 203.

The rookie started hot, with a pair of birdies including a 46'10" chip-in on the par-3 eight, but struggled on the back nine. For the second consecutive round, he posted a 2-over 37 without a birdie on TPC Southwind's back nine. His goal for the afternoon should be to score his best PGA TOUR finish, with a T14 in Puerto Rico the mark.

Peter Malnati answered his opening 65 of the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 2-under-par 31-37=68 in his second round.

The rookie opened birdie-birdie-birdie, so it's a mild upset that he didn't score better overall. In fact, he circled the last of his five birdies when an attempt from 16 feet disappeared at the par-3 eighth hole. That complemented a conversion from 22'2" at 2 and a par save from 12'3" at No. 4. Malnati played the last 10 in 2-over with two bogeys that trailed a bogey-5 at the fifth. But he's in terrific position entering the third round. At 7-under 133, he's just five strokes off Ben Crane's 36-hole lead.

Peter Malnati opened his debut at the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 5-under-par 32-33=65, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Malnati completed his lid-lifter after play resumed at approximately 4:45 p.m. CT after a two-and-a-half hour weather delay. He went 6-for-7 in scrambling and dropped six birdies, three of which from outside 12 feet. This matches his career-low aggregate on the PGA TOUR (final round, Mayakoba), but this is just his 12th career start, all in 2013-14. The rookie will go in the books as the low man among today's early draw, and the afternoon wave won't complete its first 18 holes until Friday at the soonest as the last threesomes went off at 5:30 p.m. CT and sunset is at 8:10 p.m.

Peter Malnati returns to his home state to make his debut at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The PGA TOUR rookie resides just outside of Knoxville, Tennessee, and may consider this week a home game. His lone Tour victory took place at the News Sentinel Open, played in Knoxville, backing up the theory that he would be comfortable on Tennessee golf courses. DFS gamers should take notice and consider Malnati when combing through the bargain bin.

Peter Malnati's rookie season weaves its way to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans at TPC Louisiana.

The Tour grad is a respectable 163rd in the FedExCup standings bagging a pair of top-15 finishes in his three paydays spread across eight starts. Considering his three made cuts came at Puerto Rico, Mayakoba and Hawaii, it seems there is something about tropical locations that suit his eye. While New Orleans is eclectic to say the least, it may not qualify as tropical. Of course, compared to his native Indiana just about anything is exotic.

Peter Malnati turns his attention to TPC San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open.

The rookie has made each of his seven career PGA TOUR starts during the 2013-14 season, making three cuts and cracking the top 15 twice. His most recent start was a T15 at the Puerto Rico Open. He was unable to gain entry into the Valspar Championship or the Arnold Palmer Invitational. Rather than let his form die on the vine, he decided to play the Panama Claro Championship on the Tour last week, but missed the cut.

Peter Malnati was able to put two starts under his belt as a true rookie on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14 before the holiday break.

After missing the cut at the Open, he posted a 15th in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He earned his card via the Tour regular-season money list, posting a win at the News Sentinel Open and two other top 10s before the Tour Finals. The 2013 Open was his first PGA TOUR start.

Peter Malnati fired a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to finish the week at 11-under 273.

He began his round on the back nine since the groups remained as they were for the third round. His lap around El Camaleón featured birdies on six of his last seven holes, securing a nice payday and plenty of FedExCup points. Given he missed the cut in his only other start, this will go a long way towards helping him secure starts on the West Coast Swing since the first Tour reshuffle will occur after this event.

Peter Malnati will make the second start of his PGA TOUR career at El Camaleón Golf Club in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The book on the rookie is thin, to say the least. In his only other start, he missed the cut with matching rounds of 73 at the Open. He double bogeyed two par 5s in those 36 holes, and he will quickly learn that to be a recipe for disaster on the PGA TOUR.

Peter Malnati has been added to the published field of this week's Open.

The PGA TOUR rookie was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday evening. He gained entry when Andres Romero withdrew. In his first year on the Tour, Malnati, 26, finished 18th in earnings before sliding to 32nd in the reshuffle during the Finals. Until he proves his ware on the big stage, avoid owning.

Peter Malnati posted a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the News Sentinel Open, claiming his first Tour title by a stroke at 16-under 268.

Malnati opened with a pair of shaky bogeys on Fox Den Country Club's first two holes, but that would be it for the blemishes. He would pull back to even with birdies on the fourth and seventh holes, then a third birdie on the eighth would put him in the red to stay. On the back nine, he rattled off five birdies on his final seven holes including the par-5 18th and watched as the final threesome on the course failed to tie him. His 84.72-percent clip in GIR ranked second in the tournament. With this victory, the rookie secures his 2013-14 PGA TOUR card by virtue of moving to 16th on the money list with one week to go before the playoffs. It's a tremendous story for Malnati, who lives less than an hour from Fox Den. He started the year without status before gaining Special Temporary Membership. Alas, critics of the new qualifying process on the PGA TOUR are likely to overlook it tonight.
