Brad Faxon will tee it up at TPC River Highlands in this week's Travelers Championship.
Consequently, the last time we saw the 2005 champion of this event on the PGA TOUR was in the 2012 edition. His history here would be unforgettable if not for his win, owning just three top 10s in 28 starts. Things have gone well for the smooth putter on the Champions Tour this year, picking up a win at the Liberty Mutual Insurance Legends of Golf. Mon, Jun 17, 2013 08:49:00 PM

Brad Faxon is mainly playing the Champions Tour these days, but will step away for a week to tee it up at the Travelers Championship.

The smooth putter last made a cut in a PGA TOUR event in August of 2010 at the Turning Stone Resort Championship. Faxon is likely playing this week because it is near his home in Rhode Island. It is also one of the shortest courses on TOUR.

In his final start on fully-exempt status on the PGA TOUR, Brad Faxon posted a 2-over-par 37-37=74 on Disney's Magnolia Course in the Children's Miracle Network Classic.

While it's somewhat notable that Faxon has burned through all of his TOUR exemptions, he actually has our attention since he withdrew after his opening round of the Open for an unknown reason. His two birdies today were on par 5s. Fax will get his shot at the shorter Palm Course on Friday.

Brad Faxon is listed in the published field of next week's Children's Miracle Network Classic.

We still don't know what bumped Faxon from the Open following his opening 80, but his return next week has our attention. The 49-year-old burned his final of two career earnings exemptions this year, and seems to be full-steam ahead for the Champions Tour when he qualifies on August 1, 2011.

Brad Faxon withdrew from the Open after opening with a 9-over-par 40-40=80.

Faxon hit just eight greens and still needed 34 putts. He suffered seven bogeys and one double without the benefit of a birdie or better. He's cashed in just five of 22 starts this year. He'll turn 50 years of age next August. If an explanation is provided for today's WD, we will update you.

Brad Faxon turned back the clock today in his opening round of the Turning Stone Resort Championship, with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66.

Fax missed just one green and buried six birdies, including at the final three holes of Atunyote. His longest conversions found the cup from 13'4" and 15'4" at the 10th and 17th holes, respectively. He's the fourth to reach the clubhouse one back of the co-leaders as the afternoon wave plays its second nine. Faxon hasn't gone this deep since a second-round, 5-under 65 at the Travelers Championship, where he missed the cut. He hadn't posted a 6-under 66 since the final round of the 2006 Buick Open.

Opening-round play of the HP Byron Nelson Championship was suspended due to lightning and encroaching inclement weather at 10:45 a.m. CT.

UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 2:30 p.m. CT. The threat for rain and thunderstorms was in the forecast today, but electricity in the air was the primary reason the golfers were ordered off the course. TPC Four Seasons was in the path of a series of small storm cells that popped up, and a tornado watch has been issued for a wide area immediately south and east of the course. Brad Faxon went out in bogey-free, 2-under 33. When play resumes, he will be lining up his approach in the fairway at the par-4 10th hole.

Brad Faxon signed for a 4-over-par 76 after his opening round of the Turning Stone Resort Championship.

Faxon parred his first nine holes to turn in 36, but bogeys on five of his next six led to an inward 40. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways but just seven GIR at Atunyote today. The weather is the real story, with the temperature falling below 50 degrees amid light rain. A healthy WNW breeze of 13-15 mph has resulted in a wind chill in the low 40s. Afterwards, Faxon addressed his fall schedule and where he wants to be come January. "I'll see my doc next week," said Faxon, who will not play in next week's Texas Open, "and then, you know, if I continue to do all the rehab and see some progress in my leg and it's getting better, I'll go play the last couple in Florida. The most important thing for me right now is to be healthy for '09. I don't want to start the year tip-toeing. I want to come out and have my physical health and my golf game both in good shape."

Brad Faxon is listed in the published field of next week's Turning Stone Resort Championship.

Recently, Faxon alluded to his intent to play in at least one event in the Fall Series, so this isn't a major surprise. If he doesn't withdraw early like he did at the Travelers in June, this will be his first PGA Tour event of the year. He did play in a U.S. Open sectional qualifier and the unofficial CVS Charity Classic, where he rode in a cart, but Faxon primarily has been recovering from knee surgery at the end of 2007 for a torn ACL.

Brad Faxon withdrew late on Wednesday from the Travelers Championship.

The Travelers was to be Faxon's first tournament since offseason knee surgery. He has been replaced in the field by John Huston, who has played better recently and has made his last two cuts on the tour.

Brad Faxon is listed in the published field at next week's Travelers Championship.

This is a natural return location for the native Rhode Islander but Faxon has already said that he won't play unless he knows he can compete. He has little if any fantasy value anyway but monitor his situation closely. He did win here in 2005.

Brad Faxon shot 79-77=156 in the U.S. sectional qualifier in Purchase, New York, missing a playoff for the fourth spot by 13 strokes.

Faxon had already postponed his return to the PGA Tour from last week's Memorial to the Travelers on June 19 but that is now up in the air. "I've got to practice a lot, which I knew," Faxon said. "I'm not going to play Hartford if I'm shooting scores like this." The four guys headed to Torrey Pines are Kevin Silva (medalist), Yohann Benson, Jeffrey Bors and Mike Gilmore. Other notables that failed to qualify include Mathias Gronberg, who lost in the playoff to Gilmore, and former PGA Tour member, Scott Dunlap.

Brad Faxon is now eyeing the Travelers Championship as the site of his return from knee surgery.

"I'd hoped to return for the Memorial [in three weeks], but that's not going to happen," Faxon said Monday. "My recovery plan is to get better as fast as I can and come back when I feel I can compete and not embarrass myself. I fully intend to play in the Travelers, but I have to get my head back in the game." It was just a few days ago that we relayed to you Faxon's intention to return at the Memorial but those comments were already a couple of weeks old. The Travelers is scheduled to begin on June 19.

As reported in an online blog connected to the Providence Journal, Brad Faxon is planning on returning to action at the Memorial on May 29.

Faxon announced his intentions during a conference call in mid-April. He hasn't played an official event since last year's Wyndham and missed the cut at the Memorial a year ago. Stay tuned for the official field that is scheduled to be published on May 23. Even so, Faxon's viable fantasy days are long gone.

Brad Faxon had knee surgery over the holidays and will be off the Tour for at least four to five months.

A little noticed article appeared on Christmas Eve in the Providence Journal, that Brad Faxon had major ACL surgery which will keep him off the Tour for the first half of the 2008 season. Faxon described not only did they total repair the ACL, but also, "had to do two bone graphs, part of the tibia was exposed,(and) cartilage was floating around." Faxon was able to keep his Tour card this season by taking a Top-25 All-Time exemption and he still has yet to take his Top-50 All-Time exemption.
