George McNeill slots 69th in the FedExCup standings as he prepares for his eighth playing of the Quicken Loans National.
McNeill has played in seven consecutive Quicken Loans (2008-2014) only missing the inaugural edition in 2007. He's made the weekend in each of the seven, posting two top 25s (T25/2010; T25/2011). The 39-year-old has cashed 16 times on 21 starts to his season with seven top-25 finishes, but just one has gone for a top 10 (T5, Crowne Plaza Invitational). McNeill chased the CPI with a T13 at the Memorial and a T29 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic. His missed cut at the U.S. Open, on rounds of 75-74, ended a streak of nine consecutive paydays. Post Chambers Bay, he's gone T22 (The Greenbrier Classic) and MC at the John Deere Classic in his latest start. Jul 28 - 2:57 PM

George McNeill fell two shots shy at last year's Greenbrier but he returns this week for another crack at The Old White TPC.

McNeill made a final-round charge last year, posting an emotional nine-under 61 to apply the pressure. He found out that same day that his sister had passed away. It was the second straight top 20 at The Old White TPC, with a T17 the year prior. McNeill has the form to match the course history, as he's 15-for-19 on the year, including top 30s in six of his last seven.

George McNeill has withdrawn from this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

As of this post, he's yet to be removed from the published field, but the PGA TOUR reported this internally as it always does first. McNeill rose to a personal-best T5 at Colonial last week and he's cashed in seven straight starts, so his decision not to play stings gamers a bit. The 39-year-old is 69th in the FedExCup standings.
May 27 - 10:56 AM

George McNeill hung up a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in today's final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 10-under 270 was good for a five-way tie for fifth.

McNeill began his final frame at T6, four shots back of the 54-hole lead. On his round, he split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation finishing the week fifth in strokes gained: putting. The 39-year-old circled birdies on Nos. 2, 7 and 10 converting all from inside 10 feet. He erased bogeys on 12 and 13 with two more circles on 16 and 17, the former dropping from 25'. McNeill's T5-finish was a career-best in seven appearances at the CPI (replacing his T21 in last year's edition), and was his first top 10 in 16 events on the season.
May 24 - 7:46 PM

George McNeill followed his opening 65 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 1-under-par 37-32=69 in today's second round.

He manufactured a dozen opportunities to score, but didn't find the first of his three birdies until his attempt from 24-and-a-half feet disappeared at the par-4 second, the 11th hole of his round. McNeill squared two bogeys going out, so he was even until converting birdie from nine-and-a-half feet at the par-3 eighth. At 6-under 134, the 39-year-old is two strokes off the clubhouse lead, but Kevin Na is about to at least double McNeill's deficit.

George McNeill paced the opening threesome at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Even though he went out in the first group off the first tee at Colonial Country Club today, and even though lift, clean and place was in play, that's a good score. McNeill and his playing partners waited out a three-hour delay due to heavy rain and a saturated golf course before finally being allowed to stick a peg in the ground at 10:00 a.m. CT. He promptly birdied the first three holes with conversions from 14'5" and 24'10" at Nos. 1 and 3, respectively, and a six-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 second. He added two birdies, but sunk nothing longer than a par save from 13'2" at the par-4 ninth the rest of the way. Overall, the 39-year-old split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation.
May 21 - 3:40 PM

George McNeill has turned in a pair of 3-under-par 69s to open the Wells Fargo Championship.

Almost predictably, McNeill has wrangled all four of his top 20s this season since the beginning of the Florida Swing. At 6-under 138 in Charlotte, he's only three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead and projected for another top 20. Today's trot around Quail Hollow Club featured six birdies, the longest measuring 19'5" at the par-3 second hole. The par breakers helped his a bogey-5 at No. 3 and a three-putt double bogey from just 6'4" at the par-3 sixth.
May 15 - 1:38 PM

George McNeill is back for his ninth-consecutive edition of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

McNeill is 6-for-8 at TPC Louisiana with one top 10 (T6 in 2011). His last three visits have gone T24-T47 and MC last year. He's 9-for-12 on the season with two top 20s including a season-best T11 at Honda where he closed 68-68. The 39-year-old has rattled off eight weekends in his last nine starts but at 109th in FedExCup points he needs to post higher finishes to get serious looks from fantasy-goers.
Apr 22 - 7:15 PM

George McNeill enjoyed his opening, 3-under-par 69 at the Arnold Palmer Invitational so much that he turned in the same aggregate in today's second round.

McNeill shot respective nines of 34 and 35 today. He hit 16 greens in regulation, seven more than the bogey-free lid-lifter, but he managed only four birdies. In fact, each traveled more than 15 feet to get to the target, the longest measuring 24'11" and 23'4" at Nos. 13 and 15, respectively. McNeill then walked off with a bogey-5 at the 18th. It was the first shot he gave back this week. He came to rest at 6-under 138, seven strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 20 - 5:03 PM

George McNeill scrambled his way to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

McNeill was in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Bay Hill today. He piped nine (of 14) fairways, but found only half of the greens in regulation. Not a problem. He was perfect on 17 looks inside 15 feet, but none were outside 10 feet, so his greenside touch was on point. McNeill also buried the last of three birdies from 23'2" at the par-4 eighth hole. He signed his card with first possession of the clubhouse lead, but now sits two swings in arrears of Jason Kokrak, who posted 67 in the group immediately after.
Mar 19 - 12:26 PM

George McNeill polished off The Honda Classic with a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round to post 2-under 278 and join Joost Luiten as early clubhouse co-leaders.

McNeill has found fortune in Florida over the years, so it's not surprising that he'll secure his first top 25 of the season in the Sunshine State. He's a native Floridian and played collegiately at Florida State University. In his two-day finale at PGA National, he went 4-for-14 in scoring opportunities with four birdies, including a pair from 14-15 feet at Nos. 14 and 17. McNeill will now enjoy a week off.
Mar 2 - 9:19 AM

George McNeill carded a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of The Honda Classic to reach the 54-hole mark at even-par 210.

McNeill circled five birdies and squared three bogeys on his lap around PGA National's Champion Course. Each of his five birdies fell from inside of 11 feet, with three of them occurring on the par 3s. He's developed the reputation of being somewhat of a specialist on the Florida courses, so that he's in the mix for a top-10 finish at this point is not a surprise.
Mar 1 - 2:26 PM

George McNeill returns from a two-week break and is back in action at the Northern Trust Open.

The Floridian had made three consecutive cuts, beginning with the Sony Open in Hawaii, before skipping the Farmers Insurance Open and the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He's made six of his seven cuts at Riviera Country Club, including a T6 last year, so consider him a solid option in certain formats. This is also a nice preview for how he will fare on the upcoming Florida Swing. McNeill typically thrives in events on the Bermuda greens of his home state.
Feb 17 - 9:01 PM

George McNeill has four top-20 finishes in six tries at the Sony Open and returns to Waialae Country Club this week.

As a Floridian, McNeill has often enjoyed the Florida Swing that features Bermuda grass. Waialae offers the same putting surfaces, which favors a player of McNeill's experience with the grainy strand. His current form has not been impressive. Following his emotional runner-up at The Greenbrier Classic, with the final round occurring the same day that his sister passed away, he has missed five out of eight cuts and failed to crack a top 25.
Jan 14 - 3:44 PM

George McNeill disappointed during the Fall Series with a pair of missed cuts, ending the 2014 calendar year ranked 157th in the FedExCup standings.

Expectations were high for McNeill, coming off a career year that saw him land four top 10s, including a runner-up at the Greenbrier. After finishing 46th in the FEC standings last season, he has a long way to go, missing two of three cuts during the Fall and finishing T33 in his other start. Gamers should keep a watchful eye over McNeill early on in 2015 to determine whether last year is repeatable.
