George McNeill crafted a 1-under-par 38-32=70 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to nab a top-10 finish at 3-under 281.
McNeill had a 15'8" putt for birdie on the par-4 18th to join Will MacKenzie in the clubhouse lead, but it wouldn't cooperate. After opening with two bogeys and seven pars on the Copperhead Course's front nine, he was blemish-free with three birdies on the back. He extends his streak of consecutive top-20 finishes to four. Given he is a Florida native, it isn't a surprise that he's performed well on the Florida Swing. Mar 16 - 5:07 PM

George McNeill posted a blemish-free 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Valspar Championship.

McNeill picked up a pair of birdie on each nine at the Copperhead Course, with his 19'1" effort on the par-4 18th the longest and the only one not on a par 5. Given his recent form of late, it isn't a surprise that he's sneaking up the leaderboard this week. He's cracked the top 20 in each of his last three starts. He enters the finale at 2-under 211.
Mar 15 - 1:34 PM

George McNeill produced a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach the 54-hole mark at 12-under 204.

It shouldn't be a surprise that he's in contention this week when one considers that he picked up the trophy here in 2012 and finished fifth in 2011. Add to that, he tied for sixth at the Northern Trust Open and shared 12 at The Honda Classic in his last two starts leading up to this event. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and found 15 GIR in what was a ball-striking display of excellence. He'll try and chase down the leaders in Sunday's final round.
Mar 8 - 3:14 PM

George McNeill added a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 8-under 136 at the halfway point.

McNeill buried six birdies to cover a singular bogey at the par-4 14th hole today. He's found just 24 greens in regulation but minimized the damage to the tune of two bogeys. He four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 7 - 4:32 PM

George McNeill posted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

This gives the 2012 champion 12 red numbers in 13 rounds at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico, this despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation today. McNeill sandwiched a singular bogey -- at the par-5 second hole no less -- with four birdies, two of which on the other par 5s. He walked off positioned three strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.
Mar 6 - 4:24 PM

George McNeill could only muster an even-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the Northern Trust Open, tying for sixth at 10-under 274.

While the top 10 was nice, McNeill didn't really do any damage until he was well out of contention for the title. All four of his birdies came in the final eight holes. The irons were the culprit, as he landed just eight GIR for the day. This is his second top 10 of the season, and first since the Open to kick off 2013-14.
Feb 16 - 6:37 PM

George McNeill signed for a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the Northern Trust Open and is the first man in the clubhouse at 10-under 203.

He began his round in fine fashion, corralling a 22'9" eagle on the par-5 first. His card was nearly perfect, squaring just one bogey to go with four birdies and the aforementioned eagle. His T52 last week was his first paycheck in 2014, so it would have been hard to predict that he would be fighting for his third PGA TOUR victory at Riviera Country Club this week.
Feb 15 - 5:25 PM

George McNeill reached the midpoint of the Northern Trust Open in 5-under-par 69-68=137 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

McNeill was the focus of some concern over the holidays and until he returned to competition at the WM Phoenix Open, but that attention has swung over to potential success. He's missed 12 greens in regulation at Riviera thus far, but has limited the damage to four bogeys. Coincidentally, he's bogeyed the par-4 12th and par-3 16th in both rounds. Today's loop featured five birdies, including conversions of 10'9" and 13'3" at Nos. 3 and 7, respectively. The last two times that he's opened with sub-70s, he carded a 75 in the third rounds of the Travelers Championship and Wyndham Championship last season. In fact, he hasn't broken par in a third round after consecutive sub-70s since the 2011 Sanderson Farms Championship, seven occurrences ago.

George McNeill opened the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a 1-over-par 36-36=72.

It's been two-and-a-half months since McNeill has had a tee time on the PGA TOUR. He's been resting a back injury that bumped him out at Mayakoba after one round. Today he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, but squared four bogeys against three birdies. One of the bogeys was of the three-putt variety from just inside 26 feet at the par-3 fourth hole. As for the positive, his longest birdie measured 23'6" at 12 and he poured in a par save from 13'2" at 16.

George McNeill is listed in the published field of next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

McNeill hasn't competed anywhere since withdrawing after one round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a back injury. He had opened the season 3-for-3 with a T7 at the Open and T22 at McGladrey of note. He's cashed in each of his last three trips to TPC Scottsdale, but hasn't fared better than T35 in 2009.
Jan 24 - 9:12 PM

George McNeill withdrew from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba following his opening round, citing a back injury.

McNeill posted a 4-over-par 35-40=75 that was end-weighted by bogeys on six of his last seven holes. After playing his first 11 holes in 2-under with only one bogey, his conclusion would seem to indicate that he's ill or has suffered an injury. He started the season 3-for-3 with a pair of top 25s and two 62 on his first 12 rounds.

Eighteen-hole leader George McNeill followed his opening 62 at The McGladrey Classic with a 6-over-par 36-40=76 in the second round.

It's why they play 72 holes. McNeill split 11 (of 14) fairways in the second round but landed only eight greens in regulation. He squared seven bogeys, including five in a row beginning at the 10th hole. Overall, he fanned on four putts inside eight feet. He's 2-under 138 at the midpoint, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

George McNeill returned to Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course this morning to put the finishing touches on a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-32=62 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic.

When play resumed at 7:01 a.m. ET, McNeill faced an opportunity to roll in his ninth birdie of the day, but his attempt from 19'1" at the par-4 18th hole didn't drop. He closed with pars but still secured what is his lowest round on the PGA TOUR. (He had gone as low as 63 twice before.) He split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation. He converted on six of those chances, three of which ranging from 13'9" (18th hole) to 15'2" (No. 4), but he also logged zero-putt varieties at 16 and 1, respectively, with hole-outs measuring 14 and eight yards. McNeill is scheduled to begin his second round at 7:40 a.m. A Lake Wind Advisory is in effect for the area until 7:00 p.m. It's warning boaters of sustained breezes of 20-25 mph with gusts of 30-39 mph. As a result, scores could look a little funny today.

The opening round of the McGladrey Classic was suspended for darkness at 5:33 p.m. ET.

Tournament officials scheduled golf during all of the daylight minutes available today, but a 95-minute delay due to fog this morning precluded the first round from finishing. Fifty golfers were stranded tonight. This includes George McNeill, who is bogey-free 8-under through 16 holes. When he returns to Seaside at 7:00 a.m. on Friday, he'll be standing over a birdie attempt from 19'1" at the par-4 eighth hole. Unlike today's spectacular conditions for scoring, tomorrow's weather forecast calls for sustained breezes out of the north-northeast at 15-20 mph. And the high temperature may not reach 65 degrees.

George McNeill tied for seventh to kick off his 2013-14 campaign at the Open, turning in an even-par 34-37=71 in the final round to finish the week at 13-under 271.

McNeill never really threatened in the finale, mixing in three birdies and three bogeys throughout his round and never getting any lower than 1-under. His irons were solid, landing 15 GIR, but he struggled off the tee and with the putter. He split just six (of 14) fairways and lost 1.412 strokes to the field with the flat stick. Still, his complaints should be minimal seeing as he begins the year with a top 10.
