James Driscoll makes his seventh start at this week's John Deere Classic.
Driscoll will look to flip the script on course history, as he's missed the cut in four of his six attempts at the John Deere Classic. He enters the week ranked 142nd in the FedExCup standings, needing to make a final push in the six weeks leading up to the Playoffs. With poor course history and missed cuts in eight of his last 10 events, things are not looking up for the University of Virginia product. Jul 8 - 10:04 AM

James Driscoll enters this week's Travelers Championship ranked 125th in the FedExCup standings.

Driscoll is going through a legitimate slump right now, with six missed cuts in his last seven events. We've seen a steady decline in his driving distance over the last four years, with a decrease of 15.9 yards since his 2011 campaign. Lucky for Driscoll, this is one of the shortest tracks on TOUR and that length will not be needed. His track record at TPC River Highlands is not too shabby, either, with four top 35s in his last five attempts. It looks like a great opportunity for Driscoll to end his recent slump.

James Driscoll has been removed from the published field of this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

He ended an 0-for-5 slide with a T64 at the Byron Nelson, but Driscoll still fell nine spots to 113th in the FedExCup standings. Today's decision secures his first week off in the last six.

James Driscoll enters his ninth HP Byron Nelson Championship having made seven of his previous eight cuts.

His best finish was a tie for eighth in 2011, backing that up with a T19 in 2012 and a T33 last year. Something has to give, as he's missed each of his last five cuts this season. When dissecting the stat sheet from his last five starts, it's clear the ball-striking has suffered.

James Driscoll will try and score his first top-50 finish in his eighth RBC Heritage.

While Driscoll is no stranger to Harbour Town Golf Links, he's been a slow learner. After missing the cut in his first three attempts, he has posted finishes of T73-T56-T56-T88. He hasn't missed an edition since 2008, so something keeps bringing him back to Hilton Head. Perhaps it's the relaxed atmosphere of the South Carolina coast.

James Driscoll has been removed from the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Driscoll has never played Bay Hill in competition, so that fact will remain unchanged. He has three top 25s among nine paydays this season. It's the kind of persistent success that has him 68th in FedExCup points. He hasn't finished better than 103rd in any previous season.
Mar 17 - 10:29 AM

James Driscoll grabbed six birdies en route to a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the the third round of the Valspar Championship.

Driscoll picked up four of his birdies on his front nine at the Copperhead Course, handing back just one bogey over that span. On the inward nine he traded two birdies for two bogeys. His best finish in eight attempts at this event was a T21 last year, so he's clearly growing more comfortable with the difficult layout.
Mar 15 - 3:35 PM

James Driscoll stubbed his toe to the tune of a birdie-free 3-over-par 37-38=75 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open after entering the day with the lead.

Driscoll spread three bogeys across his 18 holes, with his 2.182 putting average making the problem easily identifiable on the surface. The real issue was likely dealing with the prospect of his first PGA TOUR win in his 224th career start. It looks like that day will have to wait, as his 9-under 207 has him in a tie for 20th and seven off the lead with just 18 to play.
Mar 8 - 4:31 PM

James Driscoll throttled Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open to assume outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 12-under 132.

He circled an eagle and seven birdies today en route to tying the course record carded four times previously, including his own in the opening round in 2011. It's one shy of his personal mark on the PGA TOUR. Driscoll played the par 5s in 5-under to extend his scoring on the quartet to 9-under on the week. He's eagled the par-5 fifth both times through. He arrived on the island ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings despite having only two top 25s, neither of which going for a top 15. He's gone 223 PGA TOUR starts without a win and hasn't finished better than 100th in earnings, and that was during his rookie season of 2005.
Mar 7 - 3:43 PM

James Driscoll posted a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

He split only seven (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, but eked out an eagle (at the par-5 fifth hole) and four birdies to negate the effects of three bogeys. This is his fifth consecutive sub-70 to open a tournament and eighth in 11 starts. He arrived on the island ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings. He's currently three shots off the clubhouse lead.
Mar 6 - 4:03 PM

The final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am tees off at 9:00 a.m. PT, with groups going off the first and 10th tees.

James Driscoll is among the first off the 10th tee at 9:00 a.m. After playing the first three rounds with New England Patriots head coach Bill Belichick, he'll have to go at it without a partner in the final round. The way the Pro-Am cut fell, there are 25 amateurs spread across the field in the final round. That means tee times include mostly threesomes, but there are a handful of foursomes as well.
Feb 9 - 11:59 AM

James Driscoll carded a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Driscoll amassed 15 greens in regulation and converted five birdies at TPC Scottsdale today. His set of par breakers included respective rolls from 11'11", 17'1" and 20 feet at the fourth, 14th and 18th holes. His only gaffe occurred at the par-4 sixth where he failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker and swallowed a bogey. He signed his card sitting two strokes adrift of the early clubhouse co-leaders.
Jan 30 - 2:34 PM

James Driscoll signed for a 6-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the Humana Challenge and reaches the 54-hole mark eight off the lead at 19-under 197.

Driscoll took on the Nicklaus Private at PGA West on Saturday, opening his round on the 10th hole and beginning with back-to-back bogeys. He would figure things out from there, netting seven birdies and an eagle to just one more bogey. He only managed 10 GIR, meaning he took advantage of his limited opportunities to the tune of a 1.40 putting average. He'll return to Palmer Private at PGA West, where he opened with a 68 on Thursday, and hopes to leave with his first top 10 of 2013-14.
Jan 18 - 5:44 PM

James Driscoll dissected La Quinta Country Club in his second round of the Humana Challenge with a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63.

He went 2-for-2 in scrambling while picking off nine birdies along the way. Surprisingly, he played the quartet of par 5s in only 2-under with two pars. Up next is PGA West's Nicklaus Private where he'll begin at 13-under 131, five strokes off the 36-hole lead.
Jan 17 - 7:17 PM

James Driscoll has finished inside the top 125 on the PGA TOUR money list each of the last three seasons, but hasn't broken the top 100 in that span.

While that may relegate him to a lower standard in the minds of many, it provides real value to gamers that play full-season formats. Further, he's started off 2013-14 by securing three of four cuts, with the paydays ranging from a T21 at the Open to a T31 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He may not be this season's Jimmy Walker or Graham DeLaet, but his potential to crack the top 100 for the first time ever is quite realistic and provides for a moderate return on investment.
