Steve Elkington is 7-over-par through 14 holes of the TPC Stonebrae Championship on the Nationwide Tour.
Elkington has been out for a couple of months after withdrawing from Pebble Beach with a rib injury. After a birdie at the par-4 first hole today, he traded five pars with eight bogeys before darkness suspended play for the day. Fog delayed the start of the tournament by two hours, the mercury didn't rise above 50 degrees and rain likely slowed play. The entire late draw of 78 golfers was stranded at the horn. They will return on Friday at 8:00 a.m. PT. to complete their openers. Thu, Apr 12, 2012 11:20:00 PM

Steve Elkington is listed in the published field of this week's TPC Stonebrae Championship on the Nationwide Tour.

Elkington is 0-for-2 on the PGA TOUR this year. He's withdrawn from both starts, the most recent of which with a rib injury at Pebble Beach two months ago. He has Past Champion status and possesses no fantasy value.

Steve Elkington withdrew after five holes of his second round at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am due to a rib injury.

The Aussie started on the 10th hole of Spyglass Hill and sat 4-over through five holes when he called it quits. He was an aggregate 5-over through 23 holes of the tournament. This is his second WD in as many starts this year. Elk wrote the following on Twitter shortly after his withdrawal was posted: "For those who follow me .. I've withdrawn from AT&T pro-am with a reoccurring Rib injury."

Steve Elkington shot a 1-over-par 34-39=73 at Pebble Beach in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

We last saw Elk at the Humana Challenge three weeks ago when he withdrew during his third round. He didn't submit an explanation and he didn't do anything to quell doubt over anything that might be wrong. He hit 11 (of 14) fairways today but only nine GIR. His only highlight was a bogey conversion of 27'10" at the 12th hole. He's playing 2012 on Past Champion status and will turn 50 in December, so his has virtually zero fantasy value.

Steve Elkington is listed in the published field of next week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Elk last competed at the Humana Challenge two weeks ago but withdrew after 47 holes. He'll be making his 20th career appearance at Pebble Beach. He's missed six of his last eight cuts at the tournament but also snuck in a T16 in 2010.

Steve Elkington withdrew during his third round of the Humana Challenge.

Elkington was 3-over-par through 11 holes at PGA West's Nicklaus Course -- and an aggregate even par through 47 holes -- when he called it quits. He sat several strokes below the cut line and had virtually no chance of surviving the 54-hole cut. Should an explanation surface for today's decision, we will relay it to you. In the meantime, he is not listed in the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Steve Elkington spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open, reaching the midpoint in 6-under 138.

The 48-year-old has been completely irrelevant in our world this year, going a mere 4-for-12 with zero top 30s, but today was absolutely vintage. He split 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens, yet required only 27 putts. Among his seven birdies were conversions of 19'1", 14'4" and 17'11" at the 12th, first and sixth holes, respectively. At the time he signed his card, he shared the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but has since forfeited it to Hunter Haas. Nevertheless, it's always encouraging to see Elk in the mix, particularly on the eve of the PGA Championship, where he was a factor all the way until the finish, eventually settling for a share of fifth place at Whistling Straits.

Steve Elkington was removed from the published field of this week's AT&T National.

Elk was still listed in the field at the end of the day on Wednesday. He's had a terrible, cashing in just three of 10 starts, none of which for a top 30.

Early on Monday morning, Steve Elkington withdrew from the Farmers Insurance Open.

Elkington made headlines last weekend when he announced he was going to donate a $1,000 for every birdie he made at the Bob Hope Classic for flood relief in Queensland, Australia.

Steve Elkington has been removed from the published field of this week's Open.

Elk finished T36 at the Viking Classic, and then withdrew as an alternate from The McGladrey Classic, so today's decision isn't a surprise, but you do have to consider that he might be ailing what with his extensive injury/illness history. He's already earned enough coin for a 2011 PGA TOUR card, so he can afford the time off.

Steve Elkington withdrew on Monday from the Wyndham Championship.

Elkington was in the hunt last week at the PGA Championship. He found the green at the par-5 16th hole in two strokes and he had a 13-foot eagle putt to take the lead. His putt slid by the hole, but he was able to tap-in his birdie to tie for the lead. Unfortunately, his approach at the par-3 17th hole rolled over the back of the green and he did well to bogey the hole. After that Elkington bogeyed the par-4 18th and finished in a tie for fifth place.

Steve Elkington smoothed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the opening round of the Turning Stone Resort Championship.

Having cashed 12 of 17 times for nearly $579K this season, Elk is having one of the best years of guys on Past Champion status. The mojo carried over today, as he hit 15 greens and needed just 27 putts to finish one off the clubhouse lead. The Aussie rolled in four sizeable attempts, the first of which was for par from 16'11" at the par-3 16th hole, where his tee ball came to rest pin-high but well left of the green in the rough. He then converted on his birdie putt of 17'10" at the 17th. Attempts of 17'7" and 20'1" at the 5th and 7th holes, respectively, also found the cup.

With the nasty weather moving east, the opening round of the Travelers Championship will resume at 3:30 p.m. ET.

Steve Elkington is the afternoon rabbit, having started bogey-free 4-under-par through seven holes. The entire morning wave was able to complete its opener. Given that daylight hours are longest at this time of year, the first round will conclude today, as long as there isn't another delay.

After polishing off the final two holes of his opening 66 this morning, Steve Elkington went out and posted another in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship to take the clubhouse lead (8-under) at the midpoint.

Elk shot a 31-35 in his second round that included six birdies, including conversions of 10'0" and 12'8" at the 11th and 13th holes. He's been deadly with the flat stick thus far, taking just 51 putts (24 GIR). The 47-year-old hasn't won on the PGA TOUR since the 1999 Doral-Ryder Open.

The opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship resumed at 7:15 a.m. CT.

A full day of golf is on tap today in Irving, Texas as a high-pressure system has planted itself over the region. Steve Elkington, who started the week as the second alternate, turn in a 4-under-par 32-34=66 to join Jason Day and Joe Durant (the first alternate) in the clubhouse with a share of the lead. Elk hit 12 greens and took 26 putts, five of which disappeared for birdies, including an attempt from 18'7" at the par-5 7th hole.
