John Rollins will make his fourth start of the season as he teams with Shawn Stefani for this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
After making the FedExCup Playoffs in each of the first seven editions of its existence, Rollins hit a roadblock in 2014 and he's been trying to work his way back ever since. The VCU product hasn't landed a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since November of 2014 (T4 Sanderson Farms Championship). In his favor, Rollins does have a T7 at this event back in 2012. Perhaps a return to this familiar venue will spark something out of Rollins but this team remains a long shot to contend come Sunday. Apr 25 - 11:52 AM

World No. 1895 John Rollins is at TPC Louisiana for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and teams up with fellow Texas resident and World No. 394 Shawn Stefani. UPDATE: With rounds of 74 (alternate shot) and 66 (best ball), Rollins & Stefani missed the cut by three shots.

Rollins has made just one start this season on Past Champion status, a T65 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms back in October. His last top 10 was T4 at the same event in 2015, his lone top 10 that year in 14 starts. The VCU alum has won three times in 415 TOUR career events, most recently at the 2009 Reno-Tahoe Open. This is his first Zurich since a 74th-place finish in 2014, last of those that survived a secondary 54-hole cut, and overall, is 10-for-11 with five top 25s and one top 10 (T7/2012). Stefani also is playing his first Zurich since 2014, finishing T52, and missed the cut on debut in 2013. He's 149th in the FedExCup standings with one top 25 in 13 starts, a T10 at the Shriners. The duo is a pre-tourney 200/1 outright.

John Rollins is back at the Country Club of Jackson and looking to avenge a disappointing finish to last season's Sanderson Farms Championship.

After finishing calendar-year 2014 at No. 430 in the Official World Golf Ranking, Rollins tips the scales this week at No. 864. At first look, perhaps the CC of Jackson is just what the doctor ordered, where Rollins finished T4 at last year's inaugural playing at the venue. However, he entered his final frame with a two-shot lead (over William McGirt) after opening in 68-66-68. He swallowed a 1-over 73 in the finale, but it was his best finish since solo sixth at the 2013 FedEx St. Jude. The 40-year-old is playing out of the Past Champion category in 2015-16 after finishing a career-worst 196th in the FedExCup standings last season, missing the Playoffs for a second consecutive campaign.

John Rollins readies for his 10th playing of the Barracuda Championship and enters the tournament 194th in the FedExCup standings.

Rollins began the year No. 430 in the Official World Golf Ranking and has cratered to No. 718 entering the week. He's deposited but four paychecks from the PGA TOUR on 13 starts to his season, posting a lone top 25 at the Sanderson Farms Championship (T4) back in November. In calendar year 2015, he's made nine starts and cashed once, a T58 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. In his last 17 rounds, he's broken par three times. The 40-year-old is a perfect 9-for-9 at the Barracuda with five top 25s, including his victory in 2009, the last of three wins in 404 career TOUR starts.

John Rollins cracks this week's John Deere Classic field via Past Champions status and enters the week No. 674 in the Official World Golf Ranking, down from No. 430 to begin the year.

Rollins missed the FedExCup playoffs (first contested in 2007) last season for the first time in his PGA TOUR career. He finished his 2013-14 campaign (28 starts) at No. 164 in the FedExCup standings. His worst FedExCup rank prior to that was No. 96 in 2008. At 185th in the standings entering this week's JDC, he's well on his way to missing the playoffs again. Rollins is 4-for-10 on the season with one top 25 --which doubles as a top 10-- T4 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. With limited starts available to him on TOUR, he's also sprinkled in four events on the Tour, cashing once, a T32 at the Chitimacha Louisian Open. The 40-year-old is 5-for-8 at the Deere with two top 10s (T8/2004; T10/2002) and a T23 in last year's edition. His last win on TOUR was the 2009 Legends Reno-Tahoe Open.

John Rollins carded a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in today's opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing three swings adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

This is his 10th start of the season, but Rollins' fantasy value is but a fraction of what it once was. Despite a T4 at the Sanderson Farms in the fall, he's 184th in the FedExCup standings. Today, he traded five birdies with two bogeys. His only notable par breaker dropped in from 16'7" at the par-4 ninth hole where he concluded his trot around TPC Southwind. Overall, he hit 15 greens in regulation. More power to you if you're on board, but continue to hold your breath.

Due to unplayable conditions, the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship began at 10:00 a.m. CT.

Four-and-a-half inches of rain fell overnight, so the three threesomes went off split tees three hours later than scheduled. This includes John Rollins on No. 10. The local resident shot 7-over-par 40-37=77 in the opener. While the tournament is underway, the par-4 14th hole has been modified. On the scorecard, it's 406 yards, but an unplayable fairway has forced officials to reduce it to 104 yards. It will still be a par 4, no doubt to maintain ease in record-keeping. UPDATE: Because of the significant change, the hole will be played as a par 3 today, giving TPC Four Seasons an overall par of 69. Lift, clean and place is in effect in closely mown areas only.

John Rollins makes his way back to Irving, Texas, for this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

The Texas resident is very familiar with the area and will be making his 14th consecutive start at the event, thanks to a sponsor exemption. He's finished top 30 in seven of those previous 13, but we've seen an out-of-form Rollins over the past two seasons. The VCU alum is just 3-for-8 this season and has just three top 25s to his name over his last 36 starts.

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.

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.

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.
