Corey Pavin withdrew during round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge, citing a neck injury.
Pavin was playing at the Stadium Course in round one. He swallowed five bogeys while circling just one birdie today. After 17 holes he called it quits with a neck injury. Given the unique pro-am nature of this event, first alternate Ken Duke will take the spot of Pavin for the remainder of the event. This was Pavin's first attempted PGA TOUR start since the 2015 DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. Jan 18 - 6:45 PM

Corey Pavin makes his way back to Colonial Country Club for this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational.

The two-time Colonial champ will be making his 32nd start in this event. He has collected a paycheck in 25 of those starts. Unfortunately, his returns have become less and less fruitful over the years, missing the cut in three of his last four tries. This course is one of the few on TOUR where a 55-year old veteran like Pavin can truly contend, but as gamers we should place out chips on golfers that play this circuit on a regular basis.

Corey Pavin has climbed into the field at the Puerto Rico Open. UPDATE: Pavin has since withdrawn from the tournament.

The 55-year-old was sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was the last of three to gain entry following today's second wave of withdrawals. Pavin hasn't played the PGA TOUR since missing the cut at Colonial last May. He hasn't cashed on the circuit since Colonial in 2012. He's made only one appearance in Puerto Rico. That resulted in a T31 in 2009 when he was 49 years of age.

Corey Pavin makes his annual pilgrimage back to this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational.

Pavin's history at Colonial runs as deep as anyone in the field. Teeing it up in his 31st consecutive start at Colonial with a CV that includes wins in 1985 and 1995, two runner-up finishes and six other top 10s. With just five missed cuts in 30 years, Pavin is worth a look this week for salary-cap gamers.

Corey Pavin heads to Texas for the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The Champions Tour player is a two-time winner of this event, first climbing the mountain in 1985 and again doing it in 1996. His only start on the PGA TOUR in 2013 was a missed cut at the Northern Trust Open and the last time he cashed was a T31 in this event last year.

Corey Pavin focuses most of his attention on the Champions Tour these days, but will make a token appearance on the PGA TOUR for the Northern Trust Open.

Pavin picked up a spot via sponsor exemption, and with good reason. This will be his 29th start at Riviera CC, making 22 cuts over the years with back-to-back wins in 1994 and 1995. It's hard to imagine he will be a factor given his lack of length. He also hasn't cracked a top 10 here since his last victory 18 years ago.

Playing mainly on the Champions Tour, Corey Pavin will make his second start of the season on the main stage at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Pavin is in by virtue of his 1994 title at Colonial. In his only other PGA TOUR start of the year, he finished T38 way back at the Sony Open. He missed the cut at the 2011 edition of the Crowne Plaza Invitiational.

Corey Pavin posted a final round of 4-under-par 66 and finished in a tie for second place after a playoff with Bubba Watson and Scott Verplank at the Travelers Championship.

The Ryder Cup captain opened the front nine in 2-under-par, which was three-strokes off the lead. On the back nine, a birdie at the 12th hole moved him 2-strokes off the pace and a clutch 31-foot birdie-bomb at the 17th hole moved him to a tie with Scott Verplank, one-stroke off the lead. A three-way playoff soon took place after the leader, Bubba Watson, finished with a double-bogey-birdie finish. Pavin was eliminated on the first playoff hole, when he took a 3-wood off the tee and then found the greenside bunker with his approach. His recovery shot out of the bunker left a short putt, but both Watson and Verplank made birdies on the hole, which eliminated Pavin. Still, the P-2 finish for the 50-year-old Pavin is his best result on the PGA Tour since his victory at the 2006 U.S. Bank Championship.

Corey Pavin is 9-under-par 65-66=131 through two rounds of the Travelers Championship.

Horses for courses. The 50-year-old has missed just one fairway this week. He's hit 26 greens and cleaned up well, with a tidy 53 putts. And he has just one bogey (nothing worse). The longest of his four birdie putts today was 13'11" at the par-4 17th hole. The Ryder Cup captain signed his card today five strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Corey Pavin shot 3-under-par 70-71=141 in the U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Bull Valley GC in Woodstock, Illinois today, two strokes too high to earn one of the two bids available at the site.

The 1995 U.S. Open champion hasn't qualified for this major since 2006. Bennett Blakeman was the medalist today, finishing at 6-under 67-71=138. Former PGA TOUR member, Jerry Smith (139), earned the other spot.

In his press conference at the Northern Trust Open this afternoon, Corey Pavin announced that his assistant captains for the 2010 Ryder Cup are Tom Lehman, Jeff Sluman, Davis Love III and Paul Goydos.

Pavin, Lehman and DL3 were teammates on the victorious U.S. squads at the President's Cup in 1994 and 1996. Lehman was the Ryder Cup captain of the U.S. squad when it lost at the K Club in 2006. Sluman is a three-time assistant captain for Jack Nicklaus at the President's Cup (2003, 2005, 2007). Love will be in his first-ever leadership role as a non-player, and he is the most likely of the four chosen by Pavin to qualify for the playing roster. Goydos will be making his first appearance in any capacity for a team competition as a pro.

Doug Ferguson of the Associated Press is reporting that Corey Pavin and Brad Faxon, 48th and 37th among career money leaders, respectively, will burn their one-time lifetime earnings exemptions in 2010.

Pavin turned 50 on November 16 and announced on his Twitter page on November 9 that he had played in his final event as a member of the PGA Tour at the Children's Miracle Network Classic. Even with today's news, as the U.S. Ryder Cup captain, he's unlikely to make an impact in the fantasy world. Meanwhile, Faxon is 48 and made 23 starts in 2009 using his one-time career earnings exemption for sitting inside the top-25. A pair of lower leg surgeries in the final months of 2007 have all but rendered Faxon useless in all non-duffer leagues.

Corey Pavin is 4-under-par 69-71=144 through 36 holes of the Children's Miracle Network Classic.

Pavin is predictably dissecting Disney's host courses this week, with 21 (of 28) fairways hit and 29 GIR thus far. The 2010 U.S. Ryder Cup captain will turn 50 on Monday and has already announced that this is his final start as a full-time member of the PGA Tour. The plan may be to jump to the Champions Tour, but at 145th in earnings on the PGA Tour, a high finish this week could bring the under-50 circuit back into the equation.

Corey Pavin was added on Monday morning to the field of the 50th Bob Hope Classic.

This will be Pavin's 23rd start at the Bob Hope and he won the event in 1991 and 1987. He did play in last week's Sony Open, but missed the cut with a 5-over-par score.

In New York City this morning, Corey Pavin was formally announced as the new United States Ryder Cup captain for the biennial event in 2010 at Celtic Manor in Wales.

While speculation has lingered since Paul Azinger confirmed that he was not returning (and even before that), and while it was leaked on Wednesday, stranger things have happened, so we wanted to wait until it was official. The only fantasy impact will affect Pavin's Champions Tour value in 2010, when his playing schedule will likely ebb a few months before the event. In the meantime, expect him to make 20-23 starts in 2009, and have his usual success on the shorter, classic tracks on tour.
