Jeff Gove enters the Travelers Championship having made just two of 10 cuts on the PGA TOUR this season.

Gove's successes came in back-to-back starts in Puerto Rico and at the Valero Texas Open, but neither even cracked a top 45. This will be his seventh trip to TPC River Highlands, with a T10 in 2002 the highlight. He has missed the cut in four of his previous six visits.

Jeff Gove has been added to the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Gove was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry on a sponsor exemption. He's just 2-for-7 with zero top 45s this season. His only cut made in two trips to the Quail Hollow Club resulted in a T61 in 2007.

Jeff Gove will play his seventh Valero Texas Open this week.

It will be the second time he’s played TPC San Antonio, with a T34 in 2010 marking a relatively successful first trip. This will be his sixth start of the season, with his only payday coming in his last start in Puerto Rico where he shared 57th. If he had enough rounds to qualify, he would rank 25th in GIR, but 168th in scrambling.

Jeff Gove leaves PGA West and heads to the Farmers Insurance Open for his third start of 2013.

It's not surprising that he's had a hard time earning weekend tee times, having missed more cuts (90) than he's made (73) in a journeyman's career. Concerning is that he has only broken par twice in five rounds on courses the field has eaten alive. His batting average is a little better at Torrey Pines, making three cuts in six attempts.

Jeff Gove has been added to the published field of this week's Bob Hope Classic.

The Nationwide Tour grad started this week as the first alternate, so he gets the nod due to Jerry Kelly's WD. Gove missed the cut at the Sony last week and in his only career appearance at the Hope (2007).

Jeff Gove has gained entry into the Open.

Gove started the week as the 8th alternate and will be making his 17th start of the year out of the conditional status category. Currently 173rd on the money list, even a solo 2nd this week wouldn't guarantee a 2009 PGA Tour card. He placed T-27 at the inaugural

Jeff Gove was 1-under-par through nine holes when the first round of the Canadian Open was suspended due to darkness.

Play was suspended for about five-and-a-half hours due to inclement weather this afternoon, forcing the entire afternoon wave to return at 8:00 a.m. local time on Friday to finish. Gove pulled out of the U.S. Bank after one round (72) last week due to personal reasons and will have an 11-foot putt for par on the 1st hole when play resumes on Friday. Because of today's delay, the second round will bleed into Saturday morning, which usually means a withdrawal or two from late starters with zero chance at making the cut.
Thu, Jul 24, 2008 09:53:00 PM reported today that Jeff Gove withdrew from the U.S. Bank Championship on Thursday due to personal reasons.

He carded an opening round 72 before pulling out. He's scheduled to play in next week's Canadian Open at Glen Abbey, where he missed the cut in 2000.

Jeff Gove withdrew on Thursday from the U.S. Bank Championship.

Gove had finished his opening round and he was 2-over-par when he withdrew.

Jeff Gove finished T-13 at the Byron Nelson Championship.

The journeyman was one stroke shy of a Top 10, which would have secured a tee time at the Wachovia this week. It was his first payday in five starts this year. Because of his conditional status, he's only suited for weekly leagues and could be a shrewd start at the John Deere or certainly during the Fall Series. He's never had a Top 5 on the PGA Tour but he's guaranteed to be a bargain every time out.

Jeff Gove signed for a 1-under 69 after his first round of the Byron Nelson Championship.

Forced to Monday qualify due to his conditional status, Gove's playing opportunities are minimal. The 69 is his best score in 10 rounds (five events) on the PGA Tour this year. Gove finished T-51 at last year's pre-redesigned Nelson. Take a pass on the 36-year old for now but keep an eye on his performance as he might develop into a sleeper during the Fall Series.

Jeff Gove fired a 8-under-par 63 at the Sherrill Park Golf Course to Monday qualify for the EDS Bryon Nelson Championship.

Gove last year fell out of the Top-125 on the Money List and has had to try to Monday qualify to get into some of the better fields this year. He has missed all four of his cuts this year, but he did make the cut at last year's Bryon Nelson and finished in a tie for 51st place.

Jeff Gove fired a 5-under-par 67 on Monday at the Bridges Golf Club at Hollywood Casino to qualify for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Gove was the low score of the day and he was two shots clear of second place. He is having to Monday qualify because had an off year last year and fell to 143rd on the Money List. The limited status has only gotten him into three events this year and he has missed the cut in all of them.

Jeff Gove fired a seven-under-par 65 and is tied for the first-round lead at the Turning Stone Resort Championship in Verona, New York.

Gove ranks second on the PGA Tour in GIR (greens in regulation), but is only No. 181 in putting average. However, in Thursday's opening round he needed only 26 putts to record seven birdies and an eagle as he tied for the lead with Chad Campbell. Gove is probably best known for his critical remarks of 2006 John Deere Classic playing partner Michelle Wie when he suggested "she needs to learn how to act."
