He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and circled five birdies, four of which from outside 10 feet. the highlight was a 10-yarder from just off the green at the par-4 17th. His closest shave to dropping a shot occurred at the par-3 16th where he found a greenside bunker off the tee, but the 46-year-old connected from 14'8" to salvage par. This is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a second-round 63 at TPC Four Seasons in May of 2013. Jun 25 - 5:37 PM

Tom Gillis backed up his opening 66 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round.

He went 4-for-13 in scoring chances at TPC Southwind. He knocked in four birdies, including a pair from 10'2" at Nos. 11 and 18. Once again, Gillis couldn't avoid squaring two bogeys, but he's in the thick of it entering the weekend. At 6-under 134, he's only three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Jun 12 - 7:14 PM

Tom Gillis submitted a 4-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The 46-year-old is 192nd in the FedExCup standings, but he was sidelined for three months due to shoulder soreness before returning to action just four weeks ago. He's a horse for certain courses, but TPC Southwind hasn't been one of them as he's just 2-for-5 with no top 35s. Today's score is his lowest among 15 in competition, so it was a special day. He circled six birdies, four of which conventionally from 13-17 feet. Gillis also recorded a zero-putt five-yarder at the par-4 sixth. With two bogeys on the card as well, he wrapped up his round sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Tom Gillis opened the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 4-under-par 32-34=66 to establish the very early clubhouse lead.

Given the relentless rain recently, lift, clean and place in closely mown areas is in effect for the first two rounds. Don't be surprised if that provision is extended into the weekend, especially if more rain falls. Gillis went out in the first threesome off the first tee at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas today and went 7-for-8 in scrambling with one bogey against five birdies. His longest conversion dropped for birdie from 19'10" at the par-3 fifth hole. He's looking to end an 0-for-4 skid that began with his first start of 2015 in January. The 46-year-old sat out over three months with lingering discomfort in his shoulder stemming from surgery for bone spurs in November.
May 28 - 1:01 PM

In his first action in over three months, Tom Gillis settled for a 4-over-par 38-38=76 in the opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

The 46-year-old picked a bear of a track to return from a sore shoulder related to surgery in November. He found only four (of 14) fairways and six greens in regulation, so it's probably a minor victory that he squared only six bogeys and picked off two birdies. Despite two forgettable paydays this season, he arrived in Charlotte ranked 189th in the FedExCup standings and inside the bubble to qualify for the Tour Finals.
May 14 - 6:56 PM

Tom Gillis is scheduled to compete in next week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The 46-year-old had surgery on his shoulder in mid-November for bone spurs and made three starts early in 2015, but has been out since early February with soreness in the joint. Even if he was the defending champion at Quail Hollow (where he hasn't competed since missing the cut in 2013), Gillis is not a suggested play on a brute of a golf course as he sheds rust.
May 8 - 6:55 PM

Tom Gillis remains sidelined with soreness in his shoulder after having surgery to remove bone spurs on Nov. 14.

This explains why he withdrew before the OHL Classic at Mayakoba (on Nov. 13-16). Gillis has played thrice in 2015, missing the cut in each start. He's currently 161st in the FedExCup standings and 31st in the Tour graduate reshuffle. The veteran had aspirations of teeing it up in Puerto Rico this week, but that plan went by the boards. "I haven't played that good," said Gillis for an article in The State on Feb. 17. "[The shoulder] has been pretty sore. I probably pushed it a little too early. The doctor said I wasn't going to hurt it but it was painful. It's just a matter of dealing with the pain." Gamers have no reason to wait for him to return, whenever that will be.

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

The outspoken veteran has missed all three of his cuts in 2015 and has plummeted to 150th in the FedExCup standings. He has a pair of top 10s at Pebble Beach in five starts, so his decision not to play warrants concern. While most gamers aren't on board anyway, the 46-year-old is subject to the reshuffle. Through the Farmers, he's projected to fall nine spots (from 21st). That may not have influenced today's decision, but the next reshuffle will occur after next week's Northern Trust Open where he would likely need an exemption to compete given the deep field that Riviera draws.
Feb 9 - 10:30 AM

Tom Gillis will tee it up for the fourth time on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR in this week's Sony Open.

He is a veteran of three previous trips to Waialae Country Club, twice missing the cut following a T25 in his first trip back in 2010. The new season has been relatively kind two him. Gillis has cracked the top 30 on each of the two occasions where he made the cut in 2014-15, only missing at the Shriners Hosptials for Children Open. He ranks 115th in the FedExCup standings.
Jan 13 - 2:50 PM

Tom Gillis collected a couple top 30s during the Fall Series and will enter 2015 ranked 105th in the FedExCup standings.

Gillis put on a throwback clinic but he's not fooling anyone at age 46. His last top 10 came in November of 2012, going 25 starts without one since that time. He put together a nice run of finishes at last season's Tour Finals to secure his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. The upside is limited at this stage of his career, but salary-cap gamers will be able to find good spots to invest in Gillis.

Tom Gillis has been removed from the published field of this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

He tied for 29th at the Sanderson Farms Championship to go 2-for-3 on the season with a pair of top 30s. The first reshuffle of the season will occur at the conclusion of this week's tournament, but Gillis will hold serve in the middle of the pack.

Tom Gillis backed up his opening 69 at the Sanderson Farms Championship with a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to post 7-under 137 at the break, three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Gillis hit 13 greens in regulation and poured in five birdies, including a walk-off 3 at the ninth hole. It went in the books as a bounce-back as well following a 5 at the par-4 eighth, his only bogey of the round. As we pointed out yesterday, he was in contention early at the Open before failing to break par on the weekend at Silverado. So, the veteran gets a chance to reverse that trend in Mississippi.

Tom Gillis turned in a 3-under-par 35-34=69 for his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, good for a piece of the early clubhouse lead.

Gillis matched playing partner Jason Kokrak on the scoreboard. The duo went out in the first threesome off the first tee at the Country Club of Jackson this morning. Gillis split only five (of 14) fairways, but landed 12 greens in regulation and poured in six birdies. Three bogeys mid-round did little to thwart momentum as he penciled in circles at 14, 15 and 16 before parring the last two. He garnered some early attention at the Open to crack the lid on the season, but faded to place T26 when he couldn't break par after the cut. The 46-year-old is winless in 162 career starts entering this week, but he's carved out a nice career as a journeyman with $4.545 million to show for it.

Tom Gillis has been removed from the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

Gillis has a T26 at the Open on the board, so he's in position to rise in the Tour reshuffle category when the first reshuffle occurs at the conclusion of the fall events, but it's a never-ending scrum in that bubble. He's been around long enough to know when he needs to rest, but gamers probably won't miss him too much anyway. NOTE: Greg Chalmers and Joe Durant also withdrew as alternates.

Tom Gillis backed up his opening 70 at the Open with a 4-under-par 34-34=68 to post 6-under 138 at the break, four back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The 46-year-old flashed vintage form on the greens, at least for most of the round. He hit 13 of them in regulation and circled seven birdies, four of which from outside 15 feet! The longest measured 25'6" at the 15th hole and 39'8" at 2. However, he fanned on consecutive par saves inside four feet beginning with a three-jack from 34'8" at the par-4 sixth. As a result, his strokes gained-putting clip for the round sat just south of 1.400 at last check. He ranked eighth in the stat when he signed his card.
