John Rollins is set for his fourth edition of the Puerto Rico Open.
While one might think that Rollins offers a great value as a grizzled veteran in a weak field, his returns at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico tell a different story. His first stop came in 2011 resulted in a missed cut. After taking a year off in 2012, he returned to miss the cut in 2013 and tied for 58th last season. He's missed his last three cuts on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, so the converging trends aren't good ones. Mar 4 - 8:16 PM

John Rollins has gained entry into this week's Farmer Insurance Open.

Rollins has Past Champion status, so the odds were stacked against breaking into this field. That concern was eliminated when he was given a sponsor exemption. It makes sense given his devotion to show up every year since 2002. He's logged four top 10s during that span, the most recent a solo third in 2012. The 39-year-old is currently 126th in the FedExCup standings, mostly because of a T4 at the Sanderson Farms in the fall.
Feb 2 - 1:02 PM

John Rollins is playing with Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15, and he is already off to a quick start.

The veteran is 83rd in the FedExCup standings thanks in large part to his T4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship, which was held opposite the WGC-HSBC Champions. He is a three-time winner on the PGA TOUR, and two of those wins came in opposite-field events. His start to the season is very important, as it could lead to future sponsor exemptions due to his longevity on TOUR.

John Rollins has been added to the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Rollins T4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship exempted him into this week's stop in Playa del Carmen, México. He shared the 36-hole lead and held the outright 54-hole lead at the Country Club of Jackson before fading with a Sunday 73. Nevertheless, it was his first top 10 since he rattled of two consecutively in late May and early June of 2013. Currently 84th in the FedExCup standings, starts are going to come far and few between given his Past Champion status, so the berth into the final event of the fall is a coup. Rollins is 1-for-2 at El Camaleón Golf Club with a T65 in 2009.

John Rollins stumbled to a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship and settled for a three-way share of fourth place at 13-under 275.

Rollins began his final lap around the Country Club of Jackson with 10 pars. He finally got on the board with a short birdie at the par-5 11th, but immediately erased it with a bogey at the 12th. He would again alternate a birdie at 13 with a bogey at the short par-4 14th before ending his day with a bogey at the 18th. It was the putter that ultimately let him down on Sunday. After gaining over three strokes per round with the flat stick in each of the first three rounds, he lost 1.48 on Sunday. In the end, he finished three strokes behind Nick Taylor.

John Rollins emerged with the lead by himself at the Sanderson Farms Championship after a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round.

Rollins finds himself at 14-under 202, two-strokes clear of William McGirt, after beginning the day tied for the lead with David Toms. Rollins circled five birdies and handed back just one bogey on his tour of the Country Club of Jackson. The putter was the key to his third round as it has been for his entire tournament. He ranks third in strokes gained: putting, picking up 12.307 for the week, and is first in putting average. Rollins is a three-time winner on the PGA TOUR, with his last win coming at the 2009 Legends Reno-Tahoe Open, which is now the Barracuda Championship.

John Rollins backed up his opening 68 at the Sanderson Farms Championship with a 6-under-par 31-35=66 to post 10-under 134, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with David Toms.

Rollins didn't waste any time parlaying Thursday's success. He opened birdie-birdie-birdie at the Country Club of Jackson today. He picked off two more before the turn. He'd squared bogeys at 10 and 17, but stuffed three more birdies in between to total eight on the round. At the time he signed his card, he led the field with 14 birdies at the break. He's split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation in each round. Rollins finished no better than T19 (WM Phoenix Open) in 2013-14, so he's on pace to record his best result in a while.

John Rollins ripped off a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to take sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

This is not a joke or a misprint. Yes, John Rollins. After a terrible season by his standards, the 39-year-old is in pursuit of righting the ship via Past Champion status. He was vintage today in splitting 10 (of 14) fairways and hitting 16 greens in regulation. While he squared two bogeys, he compensated with six birdies to take that first step. The three-time PGA TOUR winner had only two top 30s in 2013-14 and hasn't logged a top 15 since the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic.

John Rollins lost his full status on the PGA TOUR but picked up a sponsor invitation to the Open.

The three-time PGA TOUR winnner has Past Champion status to fall back on. While that will get him into a handful of events on its own, he needs to do well in opportunities like the one before him this week to try and gain some momentum. The better he plays, the more likely it is that other sponsors will want him in their fields.

John Rollins completed 36 holes of the Wyndham Championship in 8-over-par 75-73=148 and will miss the cut.

He hit 23 greens in regulation, but converted only twice for birdie. He went 0-for-10 in the opening round. It's been a dismal year for the three-time PGA TOUR winner with just two top 30s among 14 paydays in 28 starts. It's the first time in his career dating back to 2000 that he hasn't logged at least one top 10. (He didn't have a card in 2001.) At 164th in the FedExCup standings, Rollins is headed to the Tour Finals. He's 58th on the all-time money list, so he doesn't qualify for a career earnings exemption. Now 39 years of age, it has to be a bit of a punch to the gut, so we'll see what he's made of sooner than later. He's certainly capable of a spirited run, so perhaps he'll embrace the opportunity that goes with the crossroads.

John Rollins enjoyed a 5-under-par 31-36=67 worth 12 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

Rollins has only two top 25s in 26 starts this season. His pinnacle was a mere T19 at the WM Phoenix Open. As a result, the three-time PGA TOUR winner is 164th in FedExCup points and 169th in earnings. One of his titles occurred in Reno in 2009. In fact, he's 8-for-8 in the tournament. Today at Montrêux, he counterbalanced two bogeys with seven birdies, six of which on his outward nine. He's four points back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

John Rollins enters this week's John Deere Classic ranked 163rd in the FedExCup standings.

It's been a disappointing 2013-14 campaign for the PGA TOUR veteran, finishing inside the top 30 on just one occasion in 24 attempts. To put that in comparison, his 2013 season yielded 11 finishes inside the top 30, and he tallied nine of them the year prior. While we know the upside is there for Rollins, gamers would be wise to keep expectations to a minimum this week.

John Rollins touts a strong record at TPC River Highlands as he enters this week's Travelers Championship.

Rollins possesses two top-5 finishes in the last three years at TPC River Highlands, signing for red numbers in 10 of his last 11 rounds. The bad news is form, as it's been an issue all season, with just two finishes inside the top 45. The form is very discouraging, but the history suggests this could be a week where Rollins can get back on track.

John Rollins defied logic in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 1-under-par 34-35=69.

Rollins has endured a terrible season, missing 10 of 19 cuts, picking off just one top 45 and arriving at Colonial slotted 161st in FedExCup points. Even today, his form was far from inspiring as he split only five (of 14) fairways and created just six opportunities to break par. But he limited the damage to two bogeys, impressive on its own given that he went 10-for-12 in scrambling for 83.33 percent. He started the week ranked 184th on the PGA TOUR in scrambling at just 51.40 percent. Rollins also compensated by burying half of his chances for birdie. At the time he took a bow for this magic show, he sat just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

John Rollins is making the short trip to Fort Worth, Texas, for this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The Dallas resident could use this relative home game as a kick-start to his season, as his recent struggles have led to finishes outside of the top 55 in each of his last 11 starts. Rollins is 4-for-11 in his career at Colonial, but his T4 finish last year is encouraging.
