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. Mar 2 - 12:56 AM

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.

Tom Gillis opened the 2014-15 season with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his opening round of the 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.

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

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.
