Bo Van Pelt has elected not to compete in this week's RBC Canadian Open.
He rallied for seven birdies en route to a 5-under-par 66 in the second round of the Barbasol Championship, but missed the cut on the number. It's his third straight MC since a T7 at the Travelers Championship. BVP sits 144th in the FedExCup standings and 135th on the money list, so today's decision is a little concerning. Obviously, if he fails to retain status, he can go to the Web.com Tour Finals to get it back. If he finishes outside the top 150 in FedExCup points and doesn't graduate from the Finals, he could burn a career earnings exemption. Van Pelt is currently 47th on the all-time money list but less than $225K from dropping outside the top 50. Jul 20 - 10:38 AM

Bo Van Pelt smoothed a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in today's final round of the Travelers Championship to post 11-under 269; his 4-under 66 is currently tied with four others for low round of the day.

Van Pelt began the festivities at 7-under (T25) and seven shots back of the 54-hole lead. On his round, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, circling five birdies against one bogey. The 40-year-old's split included an interesting three conversions on his inward nine of less than 22 inches. His birdie roll from 6'6" at the opener was his longest conversion on the day. Van Pelt had an opportunity to post 12-under, but missed from 10'7" at the last. Still, he currently sits T10 on the live leaderboard, just off his season-best T9 at the RBC Heritage, his only top 10 of his 2014-15 campaign (21 prior starts).

Overnight co-leader Bo Van Pelt settled for an even-par 35-37=72 in today's second round of the Memorial, reaching the midpoint in 8-under 136.

He's suddenly four off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. BVP hit 12 greens today and found three birdies, including a pair from 11-15 feet. He even walked off with a par save from off the green six yards away at the par-4 ninth hole. However, bogeys and 3, 7 and 8, the middle of the set via a three-putt from 27'4" on the par 5, thwarted a red number.

Bo Van Pelt torched Muirfield Village Golf Club with 10 birdies en route to an 8-under-par 30-34=64 and sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Van Pelt's love to this tournament and this golf course is evident. Despite hitting the backside of his career arc in recent seasons -- he's currently 153rd in the FedExCup standings -- he's finished no worse than T21 (2013) in the last five editions. Today's effort is his best in 41 career competitive rounds at Muirfield Village. It featured 10 birdies, including five in a row beginning at the par-5 fifth. He birdied all four par 5s and converted three tries from 15-19 feet. BVP even saved par from 10-and-a-half feet at the par-3 fourth. This is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 63 in New Orleans in late April of 2014.

Bo Van Pelt missed the cut by five strokes at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, posting a two-day total of 6-over-par 75-71=146.

Van Pelt missed his first cut this week at the CPI, having entered this year's edition a perfect 11-for-11 (with seven top-25 finishes). The 39-year-old's stats on his short week read 12 (of 28) fairways hit (42.86 percent); landing 21 greens in regulation (58.33 percent). BVP circled just two birdies against eight bogeys for a cumulative -5.454 strokes gained: total.

Bo Van Pelt preps for another look at Colonial Country Club at this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational.

BVP is largely considered a horse for the course here at Colonial. He's finished inside the top 35 in eight of his 11 starts. That includes a pair of top-5 finishes, the most recent coming in 2011. Van Pelt is just 9-for-17 on the season but this scenario calls for gamers to use course history ahead of form.

Bo Van Pelt's top-10 drought ended with a closing 2-under-par 35-34=69 at the RBC Heritage and his 11-under 273 was good for T9-finish.

Van Pelt has not sniffed a top 10 in 13 events on his 2014-15 season and has just three in his last 62 events. So suffice it say, his finish this week comes as a big surprise and is easily his best finish at HHI since a T3 in 2009. The 39-year-old circled just two birdies on his round (six over his last 36 holes) but more importantly he didn't drop a single shot over the weekend and finished the week third in strokes gained: putting. He has to feel as if his play this week removed a rather large monkey from off his back.

Bo Van Pelt authored a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the RBC Heritage to post 9-under 204, five shots back at 54-hole mark.

Once a top-10 machine, Van Pelt has managed just three in his last 62 events played, most recently a T7 at the 2014 John Deere Classic. On a day when he found just half the fairways, and just half the greens in regulation, he still managed a four birdie, bogey-free round. Not known for his short-game prowess (he's 195th on TOUR in scrambling) the 39-year-old went 9-for-9 in par-save opportunities and needed just 22 putts. In total, he had 14 one-putt greens on the day and leads the field in strokes gained: putting through 54 holes.
Apr 18 - 10:00 PM

Bo Van Pelt answered his opening 69 at the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's second round.

This isn't the direction he was expected to go today, so he's quietly developing into a potentially great story on the weekend. If guys like Padraig Harrington and Alex Cejka can find the winner's circle at a certain age, don't rule out BVP, who will turn 40 on May 16. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 10 greens in regulation today at Harbour Town. Along the way, he traded five birdies with two bogeys. All of his birdies traveled longer than 12 feet. The set included a hole-out from the rough five yards away at the par-5 fifth and conventional conversions of 26'7" and 21'6" at Nos. 16 and 4, respectively. Van Pelt signed his card sitting just one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Bo Van Pelt turned in a 5-under-par 35-34=69 for his first round of the RBC Heritage, finishing three strokes off the pace of the overnight co-leaders.

Man, when was the last time that BVP did anything worthy of our attention? His only top 25 among six paydays in 13 starts this season is a T25 at the Sanderson Farms, and he back-doored it with a closing 66. So, don't get too excited about this early success at Harbour Town. What's more, all five of his birdies found the cup from outside 14 feet. That includes a six-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 10th hole. His longest of the conventional variety measured 24'7" at the par-4 sixth. At last check, he ranked fourth in the field in strokes gained: putting at 2.683.

Bo Van Pelt limps into this week's Valero Texas Open having missed six if his last eight cuts.

BVP was once a fantasy stud, but now he qualifies as a dud. This is a good time to ignore his solid course history at TPC San Antonio. Since the tournament moved to this venue in 2010, he has teed it up in three occasions and cashed in each. A T26 last year was the highlight. If he shows up for anything more than barley making the cut, it would be a surprise.

Bo Van Pelt turns his attention to Riviera Country Club for this week's Northern Trust Open.

BVP posted three rounds under-par last week to earn a MDF when all was said and done. A much better result than his three starts prior, all resulting in missed cuts. Van Pelt has a long resume at this event, going 8-for-13 with a quartet of top 15s. He has just one top 25 on the season, but earning another one this week is well within reason.

Bo Van Pelt returns to La Quinta, California, for his 10th appearance at the Humana Challenge.

BVP is 6-for-9 here in the past, but owns just one top 25 at the venue. He enters this week having missed just one cut in four starts this season. His ranking of 159th in the FedExCup standings is indicative of how average those cuts made have been. Van Pelt can provide an element of consistency to gamers but his upside is likely limited this week.

Bo Van Pelt went 3-for-4 during the Fall Series and will enter 2015 ranked 141st in the FedExCup standings.

Van Pelt got into an early-season slump last year, missing the cut in six of his first nine events, so it's good to see him swinging well this time around. After the slump was busted, BVP rattled off eight top 30s in his final 16 events. Van Pelt looks good to go once 2015 rolls around, and should be back on most gamers' radars, if he wasn't already.

Bo Van Pelt answered his opening 66 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round to post 8-under 134 and finish two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Van Pelt hit 14 greens in regulation and squared one bogey for the second straight day. Today's miscue occurred at the par-5 ninth hole. Elsewhere, he circled four birdies, including gems from 24'9" and 25'0" at the first and 10th holes, respectively.
