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. Sat, Aug 3, 2013 08:22:00 PM

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.

Tom Gillis will play his third Shell Houston Open this week.

While he’s a veteran of the event, this is his first trip to Redstone GC Tournament Course. He entered the Florida Swing needing a spark, and given his history at PGA National it needed to come at The Honda Classic. His tie for 25th represented his best start of the season, but puts him behind the eight ball in terms of fighting for his FedExCup Playoff life. One has to assume there’s a reason the veteran has left this stop off his schedule for a number of years, so it’s likely wise to sit this one out.

Tom Gillis enjoyed a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of The Honda Classic.

Last year's co-runner-up didn't miss a beat in his return. While he needed to go 5-for-5 in scrambling to maintain a clean scorecard, that's exactly what he did. The veteran also circled three birdies, including a roll from 15'4" at the 14th hole. He signed his card sitting two strokes in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Tom Gillis returns to the Monterey Peninsula for the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with plenty of good memories on which to lean.

Gillis has cashed in each of his four trips to Pebble Beach, including a T8 in 2010 and a third in 2011. He's also made his last two cuts entering the week despite failing to cash at the Sony Open to start his season. If you want to throw a dark horse out at the water cooler this week, he may be a guy to consider.

Tom Gillis missed out on his first win in 2012 when Rory McIlroy closed out The Honda Classic, but it was a successful year none the less.

Gillis ended the year 72nd on the money list and a respectable 49th in the all-around ranking. This was his third-consecutive successful run on the PGA TOUR after graduating from the 2009 Tour. Looking ahead, The Honda Classic could be a solid play for him in 2013, as he also tied for 17th in that event in 2010.
