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, GolfChannel.com'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.
May 22 - 2:04 PM

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.
May 9 - 2:07 PM

George McNeill returns to the PGA TOUR after a four-week sabbatical for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Florida native put all of his eggs in the Florida Swing, playing four consecutive weeks beginning with The Honda Classic and ending with the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and it paid off. Each of those starts resulted in a top 20, with his seventh at the Valspar Championship the lone top 10. With his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card essentially locked up, he's back from vacation to try and claim more money and more FedExCup points.
Apr 21 - 9:10 PM

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.
