Sponsor invite Fred Funk and 9-time PGA TOUR Champions winner is in Honolulu for his 24th Sony Open in Hawaii.
There are four, 50-somethings in the field this week but Funk is the elder statesman at 60 years of age. He proved last year, when a sprout 59-year-old, that he could still hold his own, posting a T42 with a pair of 65s book-ending rounds of 70-71. The University of Maryland alum's most recent win on the senior circuit was in 2014 and has eight PGA TOUR victories in 647 career events. He posted one top 10 in his last 51 starts on the main stage, a T9 at the 2014-15 OHL Classic. Previous to that, it was a T10 at this Sony Open in 2008. Wed, Jan 11, 2017 11:11:00 AM

Past champ Fred Funk takes advantage of a sponsor exemption to make his seventh tournament appearance in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Funk won the inaugural edition in 2007 in a playoff over Argentinian Jose Coceres and did so eight-plus months past his 50th birthday. It was the last of his eight wins on the PGA TOUR and came during a transition year to the Champions Tour. It's no wonder then, that the tournament has shown an affinity to inviting Champions' Tour players back often. At 59 years of age, Funk will easily be the elder statesman in the field at El Camaleón GC and with Davis Love III a pre-tournament WD, will be the only player north of 50 to tee it up. He proved at last season's OHL that he can still deliver the goods however, posting a T9, his first top 10 on TOUR since the 2008 Sony Open.

Fred Funk withdrew from the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am prior to his opening round.

Funk was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at Spyglass Hill Golf Club at 9:50 a.m. PT. The 58-year-old gained entry into the tournament on Past Champion status. He tied for ninth at Mayakoba in the fall, so Funk still has some game. Veteran gamers miss the days when he was as reliable as a sunrise.

Fred Funk prepares for his 11th start at this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Funk is still looking for his first top 20 at this event, but he's not getting any younger. Playing on Past Champion status, he will look to use his experience as his advantage. Funk stays busy on the Champions Tour as he played 25 events last season and 24 the year prior.

Fred Funk is set to make a rare PGA TOUR appearance in the Sony Open later this week.

Funk tied for ninth in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in his only other start of the season, proving that he can't be discounted all together. He competed eight times last season, making three cuts but never cracking the top 60. Waialae Country Club is a good spot for the veteran, as his accuracy off the tee should be rewarded, while his lack of length will not be penalized too badly.

Fred Funk settled for a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to share ninth place at 11-under 273.

This marks Funk's first top 25 on the PGA TOUR since tying for 10th in the 2008 Sony Open. It could have been much better, as his four birdies at El Camaleón GC were offset by just one miscue. The problem was, that blemish was a triple bogey at the par-4 12th hole. At the ripe old age of 58, one has to wonder how many more top 10s the veteran can expect to make on the PGA TOUR. He plays primarily on the Champions Tour.

Fred Funk navigated El Camaleón Golf Club in the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba without a blemish on his card in a 2-under-par 34-35=69

Funk picked off a pair of birdies on the two par 5s on the front nine and tacked on 16 pars. He found the fairway on each of his 14 tee shots on the par 4s and par 5s, but his lack of length only allowed him to land 10 GIR. Despite that, he was a perfect eight-for-eight in scrambling. Should he hold on for a top 10 on Sunday it would prove to be a nice story and also ensure him a spot in the field at the Sony Open. His 10-under 203 is inside the top 10.

Fred Funk turned back the clock and spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The 58-year-old, eight-time PGA TOUR winner won the inaugural edition of this tournament at the age of 50 in 2007, so he knows what it takes to get around El Camaleón Golf Club. Funk split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation today. On top of saving par six times, he converted an eagle and four birdies. The eagle dropped in at the par-5 13th hole; he birdied both par 5s on the front. This is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 65 at the 2008 Travelers Championship. At 8-under 134, Funk is positioned only four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead in México.

Fred Funk won the inaugural OHL Classic at Mayakoba and returns to El Camaleón Golf Club this week.

Funk has made three of his previous five cuts in this event, with his T49 in 2012 serving as his second-best finish. Known for being both short off the tee and accurate, this course is one of the few that would still offer him a chance to contend. It measures a mere 6,987 yards and plays to a par of 71. He focuses the vast majority of his attention on the Champions Tour.

Fred Funk has been removed from the published field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The recently turned 58-year-old hasn't played the PGA TOUR since the Valero Texas Open where he placed T69. His probable, last concerted attempt at success on the circuit hasn't gone anywhere near as hoped. While he's fully exempt via a career earnings exemption, he's just 3-for-8 with no better than a T65 in Puerto Rico. However, he's currently 12th in earnings on the Champions Tour. NOTE: Fabian Gomez also withdrew as an alternate.

Fred Funk opened the Insperity Invitational with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 and sits two strokes off the overnight lead.

Funk withdrew from last week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans on the Wednesday night prior to the tournament. He cited a knee injury. Today at The Woodlands (Tex.) Country Club, he hit 14 greens and rolled in five birdies to erase a lone bogey. He's 3-for-8 on the PGA TOUR this season, but has finished no better than T65 in Puerto Rico. We'll continue to see him appear as he's exhausting a career earning exemption.

Fred Funk is listed in the published field of this week's Insperity Invitational on the Champions Tour.

The 54-hole event is slated to begin on Friday, May 2. Funk was a Wednesday scratch from the PGA TOUR stop in New Orleans last week. He's burning a career earnings exemption on the circuit, so he'll have our attention all season, but he has virtually zero fantasy value in any format.

Fred Funk withdrew from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans due to a knee injury.

The oft-banged-up senior is 3-for-8 on the PGA TOUR this season and hasn't finished better than T65 (Puerto Rico). Each of his five starts on the Champions Tour has yielded a top 15, however, so limit him to formats that include the 50-and-over circuit.

Fred Funk is set to tee it up in the Valero Texas Open this week.

Funk is playing on a career earnings exemption this season, and he's made just two cuts in seven starts. One of those came in his last appearance at the Puerto Rico Open, when he posted a season-best T65. Accurate drivers have done well at TPC San Antonio in the past, so that would be the silver lining. This is his first appearance in this event since 2006, and first-ever at this venue.

Fred Funk shot a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his opening round of the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Just some housecleaning here as Funk has virtually zero fantasy value. We still don't know why he withdrew from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba before his second round. Today at Waialae, he split a vintage 12 (of 14) fairways but found only 11 greens in regulation. The miscues led to three bogeys and a double against only three birdies.
