James Driscoll crafted a 5-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Nashville Golf Open to earn his first Tour title since the 2004 Virginia Beach Open.
His 19-under 269 was three-strokes clear of Brian Campbell. Driscoll circled two birdies and one bogey on the outward nine at Nashville Golf & Athletic Club. He caught fire early on the back nine, putting the tournament away with a birdie-eagle-birdie run on the 11th-13th holes. The eagle fell on the par-4 12th. A veteran of 240 PGA TOUR events and 92 Tour events before the week began, this is the first time the University of Virginia product has cracked the top 10 on either tour since the 2013 AT&T National.

James Driscoll carded a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the second round of the Nashville Golf Open to take the 36-hole lead by three strokes at 11-under 133.

Driscoll began his round at Nashville Golf & Athletic Club two off the lead of Wesley Bryan. Beginning on the back nine, Driscoll scored four birdies in his first nine holes. He would slow his pace on the front, trading two birdies for two bogeys. Currently 144th on the Tour money list, a win this week would move Driscoll inside the top 25 and in position for a return trip to the PGA TOUR in 2016-17.

The third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba was suspended at 12:19 p.m. ET due to lightning in the area with 27 of 78 players having completed their respective rounds when the horn sounded. UPDATE: Following a delay of one hour and 24 minutes, play resumed at 1:43 p.m.

This is the third suspension in play (second for weather) in Playa del Carmen. Officials were proactive in anticipating the disruption, moving Saturday tee times forward and splitting the field into threesomes off both tees. Still a far cry from the seven varied interruptions at last week's stop in Mississippi, however. That said, 27 of the 78 players that made the cut completed their rounds prior to the stoppage, including Driscoll. The world's 1043rd-ranked player in the Official World Golf Ranking, among two (of four) Open Qualifiers this week to make the weekend, sits at 7-under 206 and currently T29. The 38-year-old veteran of 237 pro starts on the PGA TOUR, cashed a T73 eight months ago in his only big-stage start of the 2014-15 season.

James Driscoll shot a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Never mind current form -- he hasn't cashed in his last five starts, all on the Tour -- Driscoll has Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico's number. He's 5-for-6 on the track and about to pad that résumé. In today's lid-lifter, he split only seven (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, but he squared just one bogey. Elsewhere, the former PGA TOUR member converted thrice for birdie. He signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

James Driscoll finished in a share of 14th place at last year's Puerto Rico Open and returns for another look this week.

Playing without any PGA TOUR status, Driscoll enters the week via sponsor exemption. He went 11-for-24 on the circuit last year but is just 0-for-2 this year on the lower-tiered Tour. His top 15 here last year is nice but his lack of any true form makes it easy to avoid Driscoll this week.

James Driscoll reached the midpoint of the Tour Championship in 13-over-par 74-79=153 and will miss the cut.

At the time he signed his card, he sat last of the 125 projected to complete 36 holes at Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass. Driscoll opened the Tour Finals with a T12 at the Hotel Fitness Championship, but trailed with a withdrawal before his second round at the Chiquita Classic and an MC in Columbus, Ohio, last week. So, he will not secure one of the 25 PGA TOUR cards up for grabs this weekend. It's a disappointing conclusion to a forgettable year. He sat 68th in the FedExCup standings in mid-March, but closed the season 2-for-11 with no top 60s and finished outside the top 150 in points and earnings. He's never cracked the season-ending top 100 in either, but maintained membership for seven consecutive seasons. Now without any status -- he's survived 116 cuts, so he's 34 short of qualifying for Veteran Membership -- Driscoll is headed back to the Tour where he hasn't played since 2007. He'll turn 37 years of age on Oct. 9.

James Driscoll missed the cut on the number at the Wyndham Championship and it ultimately cost him conditional status on the PGA TOUR for 2014-15.

Entering the week ranked 150th in the FedExCup standings, it was a virtual certainty that someone would replace Driscoll inside the top 150 when he missed the cut. Ending the year 155th, he must successfully navigate the Tour Finals if he is to earn his PGA TOUR card for 2014-15. Having missed 10 of his last 13 cuts, with one WD, his game seems to be in terrible shape for the important run.

James Driscoll returned to the PGA TOUR with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

He's been mysteriously absent since withdrawing after an opening 78 in Canada three weeks ago. Now with his back up against the wall at 150th in the FedExCup standings, Driscoll has everything to gain at Sedgefield this week. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, trading two birdies with one bogey along the way. This is just his fourth round under par in his last 13 starts dating back to early April.

James Driscoll is listed in the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

We don't know why he withdrew before his second round of the RBC Canadian Open two weeks ago, but he hasn't played well in months. In his last 12 starts, he's cashed just twice, neither going for a top 60. As a result, he's faded to 150th in the FedExCup standings and 160th on the money list. He seemed destined for the Tour Finals.

James Driscoll withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open prior to his second round.

Driscoll was slated to go off the 10th tee at 8:20 a.m. local time. He opened with 8-over-par 38-40=78 with one birdie, seven bogeys and a double. He hit only nine greens in regulation. This is the first time in 237 PGA TOUR starts that he's withdrawn during a tournament. (Three were as an amateur.) If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you.

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.

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.
