Tom Gillis has been removed from the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.
Gillis has a T26 at the Frys.com Open on the board, so he's in position to rise in the Web.com 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. Oct 20 - 3:31 PM

Tom Gillis backed up his opening 70 at the Frys.com 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.

Tom Gillis opened the 2014-15 season with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his opening round of the Frys.com Open, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Now this is how you hit the ground running. Gillis went out in the first threesome off the first tee at Silverado Resort and Spa's North Course today. He split only six (of 14) fairways and found just 10 greens in regulation, but he limited the negative to a lone bogey at the par-4 17th hole where he found a greenside bunker on approach. All three of his birdies traveled longer than 10 feet, the gem disappearing from 31'7" at the par-5 ninth.
Oct 9 - 2:49 PM

Tom Gillis earned back his PGA TOUR card thanks to strong play in each leg of the Web.com Tour Finals.

The PGA TOUR veteran of 160 events will have a chance to improve upon his record of 89 career cuts made. Starting in the 20th spot of the reshuffle, Gillis should earn plenty of early-season opportunity before the new year rolls around. He was a model of consistency this year with cuts made in 15-of-17 Web.com Tour events. Gillis doesn't possess a lot of upside at this point in his career but his steady play should make him a viable option in deeper formats.
Oct 4 - 2:11 PM

Tom Gillis packed on six more points to his total in the third round of the Reno-Tahoe Open and will head to the final round with 22.

Gillis had two bogeys and a birdie through 12 holes at Montreux, and needed to make a move late in his round. Birdies at 13, 15 and 18 accomplished that and he now stands a chance at recording his first top 10 of the season on Sunday. Entering the week 151st in the FedExCup standings, he needs every point he can get to try and lock up a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.

Tom Gillis spun a bogey-free second round at the Reno-Tahoe Open en route to 10 points.

Gillis birdied all four par 5s and added a birdie at the par-4 14th. With a 6-point opener, his 16 points at the midpoint serves as the very early 36-hole clubhouse lead. He entered the week ranked 151st in FedExCup points and 153rd in earnings, so like many in the field, he's battling to retain his card for 2013-14.

Tom Gillis has been removed from the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

He's cashed in six consecutive starts but has climbed just seven spots in FedExCup points to 143rd due to the fact that just one of those paydays went for a top 50 (T34, AT&T National). Never count him out, however, as he's known for coming out of nowhere in between and even during stints when he's nursing injuries.

Tom Gillis came out firing at flags in the third round of the AT&T National, signing for a 5-under-par 32-34=66 to reach the clubhouse in the lead at 5-under 208.

Gillis circled seven birdies in his navigation of Congressional CC, giving back two bogeys in the process. He found 10 (of 14) fairways, which were the most he's found all week, and landed 13 GIR. His putter was hot, gaining over three stokes on the field with the flat stick and converting two birdie attempts from outside 30 feet.

Tom Gillis enters Congressional Country Club for AT&T National on the heels of his most consistent run of 2013.

Gillis has made four of his last five cuts, including a T12 at the Byron Nelson to start the surge. He’s made one of his three cuts in this event, but has never cashed when the venue was Congressional. At 73rd in total driving and 126th in ball-striking, perhaps his game isn’t the perfect fit for the tee-to-green demands he faces this week.

Tom Gillis signed for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship and enters the final round two back at 11-under 199.

Gillis circled four birdies and suffered one bogey in his third lap around TPC Four Seasons. His most dramatic shot was his final one, holing out a bunker shot from 15 yards for birdie at the 18th. He leads the field in strokes gained-putting this week, averaging a gain 2.757 strokes per round over the field. He's one of a number of players chasing Keegan Bradley in search of a first win.

With a 7-under-par 30-33=63 in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship, Tom Gillis was the first to stake a claim to the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 8-under 132.

The lift, clean and place provision was in place again today, buthe veteran was a one-man highlight reel going out today. After starting his round with a benign par at the 10th, he rolled in four consecutive conversions from outside 11 feet. The first was in the form of a par save from 12'10" at 11. The birdies immediately trailed, the best of the bunch dropping in from 31'10". He then closed out his first nine with two more birdies, this time finding the distance from 16'11" at 16 and 12'3" at 18. Bogey-free through 17 and eyeing a birdie putt at the par-4 ninth, he'd three-putt from 9'1" to settle for a career-tying low on the PGA TOUR.

Tom Gillis looped Quail Hollow in 4-over-par 38-38=76 in his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

The good news is that he's back inside the ropes after consecutive early withdrawals the last two weeks. The bad news is that he converted on only one of 12 birdie opportunities at Quail Hollow today, and then proceeded to bogey five of the other six holes. Everything Gillis has been giving us lately smells of a guy barely hanging on as he approaches 45 years of age (in July).

Tom Gillis is listed in the published field of next week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Continue to hold your breath. Gillis has withdrawn early after each of his last two commitments. He shared 53rd place at last year's stop at Quail Hollow, but he is not a recommended investment until he proves that he's able to peg it.

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

Same story, different week. The veteran was an early WD at last week's RBC Heritage as well. With two straight dismissals, we'll add him to our Injury Report. He's 153rd in FedExCup points.

Tom Gillis has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

Gillis has missed six of nine cuts this season, including his last three. He's 148th in FedExCup points. The 44-year-old is the quintessential tweener in fantasy gamers. He probably belongs on a long-term roster but most aren't patient enough to wait for that infrequent great finish.
