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. Jun 30 - 11:16 AM

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.
Apr 23 - 8:23 PM

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.
Mar 24 - 8:28 PM

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.

Fred Funk is listed in the published field of next week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

We last saw the Champions Tour member at Mayakoba in mid-November where he mysteriously withdrew before his second round. Now fully exempt once again on the PGA TOUR via a career earnings exemption, he'll be making his 21st appearance at Waialae. The most recent of his four top 10s at the Sony is a T10 in 2008.
Jan 3 - 6:50 PM

Fred Funk withdrew from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba prior to his second round.

The 57-year-old first-ever champion of this tournament (in 2007) opened with a 4-over-par 40-35=75. Funk started his round bogey-bogey-double bogey before running the table with pars. He was 0-for-9 in par-breaker opportunities. He was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 4:40 p.m. CT for the second round. If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you. We'll also add him to our Injury Report since he's fully exempt on the PGA TOUR via a career earnings exemption.

In a PGA TOUR Hangouts on Oct. 9, Fred Funk revealed that he's prepared to tackle a busy schedule beginning with this week's Open.

"It depends how I’m doing, but right now I’m probably going to play 10 to 12 on the [PGA] TOUR and probably about 20 on the Champions Tour," he said. "So, it’s a big, big schedule. I’ll be playing a lot, so I’m hoping my body will hold out." He added that he'll play The McGladrey Classic and the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to conclude the fall portion of the 2013-14 schedule. He started the season with a missed cut at CordeValle. After opening with a 4-over-par 75 that featured only one birdie -- on the first hole he played -- he responded with a 70 despite racking up 14 greens in regulation. Although we'll see a fair amount of him competing alongside the younger boys, because he went 0-for-1 on the PGA TOUR in 2013, his only potential value remains deep in salary formats.

Fred Funk signed for a 4-over-par 36-39=75 following his opening round of the Open.

No matter what happens for the remainder of the season, no one can take away the fact that he birdied his first hole of the 2013-14 season at 57 years of age. However, he played the remaining 17 holes in birdie-free 5-over with five bogeys. Funk made only one start on the 2013 PGA TOUR, but he's exhausting his career earnings exemption for sitting inside the top 50 all-time at 38th. It's unlikely that he'll play often, using the circuit more to stay fresh for the Champions Tour.

Fred Funk posted a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round of the 3M Championship on the Champions Tour.

Funk is four strokes back of the overnight quad-leaders in this 54-hole event. Since we last relayed news on the 56-year-old, Rotoworld has learned that he no longer has a Major Medical Extension in play on the PGA TOUR. This is due to his choice to stick with a regular schedule on the 50-and-over circuit.

Fred Funk shot 9-under-par 72-67-72-68=279 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, good for a share of 30th place.

Not surprisingly, the 55-year-old led the field in fairways hit (47 of 56) en route to his best finish on the PGA TOUR since the 2008 Sony Open (T10). Funk will deposit a check worth $36,408.89, leaving him with two starts on his Major Medical Extension to bank $610,837 and retain status.

Fred Funk completed 36 holes of the RBC Heritage in 11-over-par 81-72=153 and will miss the cut.

Funk hit only 15 greens at Harbour Town this week and still needed 60 putts. While he carded an eagle and three birdies, it wasn't anywhere enough to offset 12 bogeys and two doubles. This leaves him with three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $647,246 and retain status.

Fred Funk shot 9-over-par 76-73=149 at The Honda Classic and will miss the cut.

Funk split 22 (of 28) fairways but hit only 14 greens in regulation at PGA National this week. He carded 10 bogeys, one double and a triple. This leaves him with four starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $647,246 and retain status.

Fred Funk shot even-par 73-71-72-68=284 at the Mayakoba Golf Classic, good for a share of 49th place worth $9,040.33.

The inaugural champion of this tournament (in 2007) did what he does best by splitting fairway all week. He missed just nine of 56, good for second-most in the field. He now has five starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $647,246 and retain status. He's scheduled to tee it up at this week's Honda Classic where he's 0-for-3 since the event moved to PGA National's Champion Course.
