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.

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.

George McNeill turned in an 8-under-par 33-30=63 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The 39-year-old hit 13 greens in regulation and circled nine birdies at TPC Summerlin today. His longest conventional conversions measured 18'5" and 25'9" at the par-4 10th and 12th holes, respectively, but McNeill also holed out for birdie from eight yards away from a lie just off the green at the par-4 third. This is his lowest aggregate since he closed out the emotional runner-up finish at Greenbrier with a 61 that included a hole-in-one. He's 8-under 134 at the midpoint in Vegas, one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

George McNeill returns to a favorable venue at this week's Shriners Hospital for Children Open.

McNeill took home the crown in 2007 when course hosting duties were split among TPC Summerlin and TPC Canyons. He backed up his victory with three straight top 15s but has soured a bit since. The Florida State product hasn't finished inside the top 35 his last three trips here, which is a bit more predictive of what's to come this year. The upside is huge here for this course horse, take a look in deeper formats.

George McNeill begins the BMW Championship ranked 48th in the FedExCup standings and needs to crack the top 30 if he is to advance to East Lake.

McNeill struggled in the aftermath of his sister's passing just before he teed the final round of The Greenbrier Classic. Following that runner-up finish at The Old White TPC, he missed his next three cuts. He got back on track to some degree with a T29 in the Deutsche Bank Championship, so perhaps he has caught a second wind.

George McNeill shot a 4-over-par 37-39=76 in his opening round of The Open Championship.

You know the story by now. After polishing off a career-best 61 that included a hole-in-one in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic, McNeill learned that his sister had died just prior to his tee time that day. His runner-up finish exempt him into the field at Royal Liverpool, so he withdrew from the John Deere Classic and spent last week with family. Today he split eight (of 14) fairways and hit just 10 greens. McNeill exchanged two birdies for six bogeys, one of which on the par-5 16th hole. He's eight strokes in arrears of the overnight lead.

George McNeill has been removed from the published field of this week's John Deere Classic.

This is as expected. McNeill's oldest sister died on Sunday, so he has returned home to be with his family. He should return at next week's Open Championship at Royal Liverpool. As a result of his solo second at The Greenbrier Classic, he's zoomed to 29th in the FedExCup standings.

George McNeill twirled a bogey-free, 9-under-par 28-33=61 in his final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 14-under-par 266, two strokes in arrears of champion Ángel Cabrera.

En route to what is his career low on the PGA TOUR, McNeill enjoyed one highlight that stood above the others. He recorded a hole-in-one with a 4-iron from 219 yards on the par-3 eighth hole. That ace came at the end of a run preceded by four consecutive birdies. Of his seven birdies on the day, the notable measured 24'11" at the par-4 sixth and 10'1" at the par-4 10th. As one would imagine, McNeill's game was clicking on all cylinders. He split 11 (of 14) fairways, landed 16 GIR and gained over three strokes with the putter at the time of his posting. After his round,'s Jason Sobel tweeted that McNeill's oldest sister died today and that the golfer was informed after his round. He is expected to withdraw from this week's John Deere Classic as a result, but Sobel reported on Golf Channel that McNeill will accept the exemption he earned into The Open Championship today.

George McNeill answered his opening 69 at the Quicken Loans National with another in his second round to post 4-under 138, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole quad-leaders.

The way he started today's loop of Congressional, it was anyone's guess in which direction this day was headed. McNeill started on the par-3 10th and walked off with a zero-putt par after holing a six-yarder from the fringe. He then found water off the tee at the par-4 11th, but salvaged par with a gem of a putt from 31'2". While both conversions saved squares, they seemed to invigorate the veteran as he rallied for three birdies on his next six holes, including rolls from 17 feet and 12'6" at the par-4 15th and 17th, respectively. McNeill played his last 10 in 1-over, but snuck in as the last man of 10 inside the top 10 on the leaderboard at the halfway point.

George McNeill turned in a 2-under-par 37-32=69 for his opening round of the Quicken Loans National.

You'll forgive him if he signed his card thinking that he at least salvaged something worthwhile out of today's trot around Congressional. He missed only two greens in regulation, yet stood at birdie-free 1-over through 11 thanks to a three-putt bogey from 35 feet at the par-3 second hole. McNeill then circled three birdies on his way in to finish just two strokes off the clubhouse lead. His longest birdie measured 15 feet at the par-5 16th.

George McNeill has made each of his six cuts in the Quicken Loans National and is back for a seventh journey this week.

While McNeill regularly cashes checks, his only two top 25s came in the two editions not held at Congressional Country Club. His best result at this week's venue was a T31 in 2009. He's made three of his last four cuts leading up to this event, with each cracking the top 30.

George McNeill submitted a 2-under-par 35-33=68 for his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Other than a two-week sidetrack of missed cut in New Orleans and Charlotte, McNeill has been playing exceptionally. Prior to that stumble, he connected five top 20s, but then rebounded for a T13 at THE PLAYERS in his most recent start. Today at Colonial, he went 4-for-14 in birdie chances. Each of his 18 conversions measured under 10 feet, but he also whiffed on three tries inside the same range. Nevertheless, he's just one stroke adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

George McNeill carded a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the third round of THE PLAYERS and enters the finale at 8-under 208.

McNeill was aggressive early, holing four birdies to just one bogey on his opening nine. He would play it safe coming to the clubhouse, trading a birdie and a bogey to go with seven pars. Though he gained just shy of three strokes with his flat stick on Saturday, all of his birdies fell from inside eight feet. While his last few starts of the season weren't his best, he was on fire in March during the Florida swing. Each of his three starts in the Sunshine State ahead of this week went for top 15s, so bring on the Bermuda greens.

George McNeill is 5-under-par 71-68=139 at the halfway point of THE PLAYERS.

McNeill loves himself some golf in Florida, but TPC Sawgrass has always given him fits at least once during every trip. This is his sixth appearance, his best finish of two paydays was a mere T58 in 2010 and his effort thus far this week marks the first time he's ever connected red numbers in the same edition. It's this fact that demands concern as he's carded six rounds of 75 or higher over the years, including a pair of 82s. He also arrived having missed his last two cuts, so the odds seemed stacked against success. Today's walk featured five birdies against just one bogey. His longest conversion measured 14'8" at the par-4 10th where he began the day.
