Tim Petrovic has gained entry into this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.
Petrovic started the week as the 11th alternate, but finds himself with a tee time at TPC Four Seasons thanks to Jason Day's withdrawal. Petrovic lost in a playoff in Puerto Rico in early March, but he's just 170th in the FedExCup standings since the opposite events distribute a fraction of the usual points allocated. He hasn't cashed in this event since a T76/MDF in 2012 and hasn't broken 71 in his last six, competitive rounds on the course. May 27 - 11:55 AM

Tim Petrovic spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 36-32=68 at The Club at Comanche Trace in Kerrville, Texas, in the open qualifier for the Valero Texas Open, one swing too many to join the playoff for a spot in the tournament proper.

Ah, the fine line between losing in a playoff in Puerto Rico three weeks ago and not having full status on the PGA TOUR. Relegated to four-spotting again, Petrovic opened his inward nine in birdie-birdie-par-eagle, but settled for pars everywhere else. Other notables that failed to qualify include: 68--Vaughn Taylor; John Rollins ... 69--Oscar Fraustro; Steven Alker ... 70--Jonathan Randolph; Wil Collins ... 71--Roger Sloan ... 72--Heath Slocum; Omar Uresti; Kyle Thompson ... 73--Matt Bettencourt ... 74--Chris Smith ... 76--Whee Kim; Carlos Sainz, Jr.; Roberto Castro ... 79--Arjun Atwal.

Tim Petrovic has been added to the published field of this week's Valspar Championship.

Losing in any playoff stinks, but the consolation prizes include a boatload of FedExCup points, a six-figure payday and an exemption into the next open event. This is why Petrovic has slid into the field at Copperhead. He'll be making his 13th appearance on the track where he hasn't cashed since a T63 in 2010. A P2 at the Puerto Rico Open lifted the 48-year-old to 149th in the FedExCup standings in only three starts this season.

Tim Petrovic lapped Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico in 5-under-par 32-35=67 in today's final round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 7-under 281, and then lost in a five-way playoff to Alex Cejka.

Petrovic didn't grab our attention until today, but he was the first to set a target on Sunday. He opened with respective rounds of 75 and 71 to survive the cut on the number. Saturday's 68 positioned him for the opportunity to pounce today. And boy, did he. After opening birdie-birdie, the 48-year-old eagled the par-4 third hole to go 4-under after three holes. He'd trade a bogey at the par-4 10th with a birdie-3 at 13, and then close with a birdie at the par-5 18th. Alas, despite the return to 18 for the playoff, he settled for par before Cejka drilled home a birdie for the title. Petro's consolation is his first top 10 on the PGA TOUR since the 2013 Greenbrier Classic (T9). He last finished inside the top five at the 2012 Open where he shared runner-up honors.

Tim Petrovic has been removed from the published field of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

This is a minor blow. He's not going to get many early starts on Past Champion status. Petrovic tied for 35th at the Sanderson Farms in his only previous start, so he laid the foundation. In his only action since, he posted a T54 at the Panama Claro Championship on the Tour.
Feb 11 - 11:57 AM

Tim Petrovic's Past Champion status was good enough to get him into the field at the Sanderson Farms Championship this week.

He enjoyed 10 starts in 2013-14 with the same status, making four cuts and snaring one top-15 finish when he tied for 14th in Puerto Rico. Petrovic's lone PGA TOUR win came at the 2005 Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Perhaps being at the Country Club of Jackson in nearby Jackson, Mississippi, will ignite a positive fire.

Tim Petrovic has been added to the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Petrovic was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry following numerous withdrawals this morning. He made noise at the RBC Canadian Open before fading into a share of 43rd place, and then chased it with a T53 in Reno. Now 192nd in the FedExCup standings with four paydays in nine starts, and just 119th in Tour earnings, the one-time PGA TOUR winner's most realistic shot at regaining fully exempt status is via the Tour Finals.

Tim Petrovic took a step back with a 2-over-par 34-38=72, falling to 8-under 202 after 54 holes.

The overnight co-leader came out shaky, writing down a bogey-five on the first hole, but settled down nicely after that. He reached 11-under before finding a greenside bunker on the 11th and then again on the 13th, giving back a total of three shots on those holes. As the last man in the field, he has the be ecstatic to be entering Sunday inside the top 5 and just seven shots off the lead.

Overnight co-leader Tim Petrovic backed up his opening 64 with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 10-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Jim Furyk.

No letup for Petro, who went 7-for-8 in scrambling with a bogey-5 at the 18th hole today, his ninth of the round. He also rolled in five birdies, including conversions from 18'2" and 13'2" at Nos. 3 and 6, respectively. Perhaps the highlight of the bunch was an eight-yard hole-out from the rough at 15. And for good measure, he saved par from 40'7" at the par-3 fifth where he found a greenside bunker off the tee. Anything he does at this point is a bonus.

Tim Petrovic smoothed a bogey-free, 31-33=64 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, good for a share of the overnight lead with Michael Putnam.

Petrovic was the last man in the field when Benjamin Alvarado withdrew on Wednesday. The American has been limited to seven starts this season due to Past Champion status, but he proved today that he needs only one to change everything. After opening with a standard-issue par at the par-4 first, he strung together birdies at 2, 3 and 4, the last disappearing from 59'5". He added a birdie from 11'7" at the par-3 seventh and an eagle-3 at 12 where he knocked his second to just 39 inches. This is Petro's lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he closed out a T2 at the 2012 Open with the same.

Tim Petrovic has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Petrovic started the week as the seventh alternate. He gained entry when Benjamin Alvarado withdrew. The one-time PGA TOUR winner has missed the cut in his last five starts dating back to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans. He's currently outside the top 200 in both FedExCup points and earnings.

Tim Petrovic returns to TPC Deere Run for his ninth start at the John Deere Classic.

Petrovic has plenty of success to lean on at TPC Deere Run, with five top 30s in eight attempts, including 2009, when he shared a piece of the 54-hole lead before settling for a T5 finish. Unfortunately for gamers, he has missed 20 of his last 35 cuts on the PGA TOUR, and he's made just six starts this season. The upside is there for Petrovic this week, but the downside is also clear as day.

Tim Petrovic has been added to the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

He was the 12th alternate at the start of the week, but gained entry today when Charley Hoffman withdrew. Petro recorded the first of four career runner-up finishes on the PGA TOUR (to go with one title) in his debut at TPC Southwind in 2002. He's cashed in four of eight return trips, including a T56 last year when he sat one stroke off the 18-hole lead. This is his fifth start of the 2013-14 season that includes a T14 in Puerto Rico. He's 196th in the FedExCup standings.

Tim Petrovic has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Petrovic won the first edition of this tournament at TPC Louisiana in 2005, but he required a sponsor exemption to gain entry. All of his other three paydays went for top 25s, but it's been five years since his last (T11). This will be just his third start of 2013-14 due to Past Champion status.

Tim Petrovic carded a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Petro buried seven birdies against two bogeys today and finished one stroke off the early clubhouse lead. This is his 17th competitive loop at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, and it matches his lowest round thus far. He turned in a 68 in the third round in last year's edition. It's also just the third time that he's gone sub-70 on the layout.
