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. Aug 15 - 2:10 PM

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.

John Rollins teeters into this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The up-and-down season continues for Rollins, missing cuts in half of his 16 tournaments entered, but never missing more than two cuts in a row. He is just one cut away from matching his total missed cuts in 2013, yet he's earned just 14% of his 2013 money total.

John Rollins is looking to bounce back this week at the Shell Houston Open.

Rollins was sitting pretty at even-par through 27 holes at last week's Valero Texas Open. He then proceeded to bogey four straight holes (13,14,15,16) on the back nine and found himself one stroke outside of the cut line. Another disappointing finish for Rollins in what has become a very disappointing season having seven missed cuts in 13 trials.
Apr 2 - 10:51 AM

John Rollins enters the Valspar Championship ranked 131st in the FedExCup standings.

The veteran has secured six of his 11 cuts in 2013-14, just once cracking the top 25. His 10 trips to the Copperhead Course have offered eerily similar returns, cashing on six occasions and twice finishing inside the top 25. Given that 10 starts in this event and 11 events in 2013-14 have yet to produce a top 10, it's unlikely that this week will be the breakthrough.
Mar 11 - 9:01 PM

John Rollins seems poised to get back on the board at the Waste Management Phoenix Open where he cashed in all 11 of his appearances.

If course history shows any mercy, it'll find a way to get Rollins to the weekend. He's logged two top 10s and another four top 25s at TPC Scottsdale where he's pegged it in every edition since 2003. However, he's missed six of his last 10 cuts entering the week, including at the last two events, and hasn't cracked the top 30 since a T20 at the Reno-Tahoe Open in early August.
Jan 28 - 10:11 PM

John Rollins is three wins and 367 starts into a steady PGA TOUR career.

The Texan is established by every measure of the word, and already has notched three cuts in four attempts on his belt in 2013-14. While he's never been confused with the TOUR's elite, he has meticulously amassed $17,866,926 in cash over the years and ranks 53rd on the career money list. Savvy golf fans realize that a player ranking inside the top 50 in career earnings is afforded a mulligan should they ever fail to retain their card. He's creeping up on that number and adding that valuable potential exemption to his war chest.

John Rollins turned in a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of The McGladrey Classic.

After a front-weighted 2013 season, this is a welcome surprise from the veteran. He missed only three (of 14) fairways and two greens in regulation en route to five birdies. While he was no doubt happy to see birdie attempts from 14'9" and 21'1" drop at the first and 12th holes, respectively, his par conversion from 16'9" at 13 was clutch. It helped secure his lowest round since he began his week at Colonial in late May with a 63. He signed his card today sitting three strokes off the clubhouse lead and has already return to the course for his second round.

John Rollins heads to the CIMB Classic after taking last week off.

Rollins tied for 46th at the Open to start the season, then opted not to play at TPC Summerlin last week. Form is a bit of a concern, as he missed five of his last six cuts to close out the 2013 season. His last top 10 came at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June of 2013.

John Rollins lands on the wrong side of the FedExCup bubble as the Deutsche Bank Championship nears.

Rollins is in the 71st spot, with the top 70 at tournament's end moving on to the third leg of the Playoffs. He's made the cut in seven of his nine trips to TPC Boston, and that's about all it would take for him to move forward. On the down side, he's missed the cut at the Wyndham Championship and The Barclays so form is a question.

John Rollins has been added to the published field of this week's Reno-Tahoe Open.

Rollins was a late entry. He's 50th in FedExCup points but has missed the cut in his last two starts. He picked off the most recent of three PGA TOUR victory at Montreux in 2009. It's one of seven paydays in as many starts.
