World No. 861 George McNeill withdrew during the final round of the Barbasol Championship. UPDATE: McNeill returned to action at the Sanderson Farms Championship with rounds of 71-72=143 (-1) which is good enough to play the weekend.
As of post time, no reason has been cited. After opening in 69-70-70, the 41-year-old began T60 on 4-under. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he was 4-over thru four holes, circling birdie-3 at 10, par at 11, triple bogey-6 at 12, and double bogey-7 at 13 when he called it quits. This is the Florida State product's 12th mid-tourney WD in 265 career events, first this season in seven starts. Sun, Jul 23, 2017 04:03:00 PM

George McNeill withdrew from this week's Wyndham Championship during the opening round, citing neck pain. He was 6-over through nine holes at the time of the WD. UPDATE: McNeill is in the published field for the DAP Championship, the first leg of the Tour Finals as he attempts to play his way back onto the big stage.

Making his 23rd start of the season, McNeill entered the week ranked 191st in the FedExCup standings. It's been a lost season for the Florida State product, breaking a streak of five straight playoff appearances. This goes in the books as his third mid-tournament WD of the season and 11th of his career. The 40-year-old has also been DQ'd from two events during the 2015-16 campaign so this is certainly a season to forget.

With one hole remaining in his second round, George McNeill withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open, 3-over-par on his lap and 6-over total. UPDATE: McNeill returned to action on August 4th at the Travelers and will miss the cut after posting rounds of 5-over-par 75-70=145.

Since debuting at the 2007 Canadian Open with a T3, the 40-year-old's next three starts show: CUT-WD-DQ. His last four starts this season now read: WD-CUT-WD-CUT. This is McNeill's 10th mid-tournament WD in 255 career starts and second of the season in 20 events, tossing in a pair of DQs as well. No reason for today's exit has been provided as yet, but his last WD at the QL Nat'l in June was due to a back injury. The Florida native and resident entered the week 184th in the FedExCup standings with one top 25 in 19 events.

George McNeill has withdrawn from this week's Quicken Loans National with a back injury, he was 6-over through 27 holes at the time of the WD. UPDATE: McNeill returned to action July 14th at the Barbasol Championship and missed the cut by one after rounds of 72-69=141.

McNeill is having an interesting season, to say the least. He is now 6-for-18 with a pair of DQs and a WD. He opened the week with a 4-over-par 36-39=75 where he traded two birdies with four bogeys and a double. He started on the back nine today and swallowed another double bogey early at the par-4 11th. McNeill circled three birdies before reaching the 18th tee box. From there he found a greenside bunker, then water, and ultimately carded a triple-bogey 7 before walking off the course with the back injury. Gamers should steer clear of McNeill in all formats until he can show some semblance of form.

George McNeill has been disqualified from the Zurich Classic after missing his second round tee time, he was 3-over through 18 holes.

File this one under odd DQ stories. McNeill was stranded on the course due to darkness during round one. He took to the course this morning and made a mess of the back nine in the process. On the par-4 13th hole he had a mishap on the green that led to a double bogey and then found water on his approach shot at the par-4 16th. Once again, that lead to a double bogey. He backed that up with two more consecutive bogeys to close the round, rinsing another ball at the par-5 18th. McNeill closed the round at 3-over 75 and did not care to give TPC Louisiana another chance today. This will go in the books as his second DQ of the season, the first coming at the Puerto Rico Open due to a non-conforming club.

George McNeill survived a dormant putter on the way toward a 1-under-par 36-34=70 during round two of the RBC Heritage, placing him at T7 with a 4-under 138.

McNeill striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 10 greens in regulation, but could not catch a break with the flat stick. He missed a par-saving attempt from 5'5" on the par-4 eight hole in addition to his lack of lengthy putts made. The 17'1" birdie splash on the par-3 14th hole was his only putt made from outside six feet. He walked off the course losing 0.186 strokes with the putter. All in all, McNeill is just two strokes off the current co-leaders and is still on pace to post a career-low Heritage finish (T37/2009).

George McNeill opened his week at the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 while taking on Harbour Town Golf Links in windy conditions.

The Florida resident traded three birdies with one bogey on his outward nine (opening on the back nine). All three birdie splashes came from outside 11 feet but his lone bogey was a result of missing a 4'11" par-saving attempt. McNeill was one of eight golfers in the A.M. wave to finish at 3-under or better. In five previous Heritage appearances his best is a T37, he could be on his way toward besting that.

George McNeill has been disqualified from the Puerto Rico Open at Coco Beach, following his third-round, 5-over-par 39-38=77. A non-conforming club was the culprit for the DQ.

McNeill fired out of the gates on Thursday with a 7-under 65 in the opener before stalling out with a 1-under 71 on day two. He got himself out of contention early today with a bogey on the first and a disappointing double on the par-5 fifth hole. There have been no specifics released about what club caused the issue or why, but we will update here if or when that news comes in. McNeill would have entered Sunday at 3-under 213, eight strokes off the pace set by Ian Poulter.

Past champ George McNeill stalled out to a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open for a two-day tally of 8-under 136, one shy of 36-hole leader Rafael Campos.

The 2012 winner opened his fifth appearance with 65 to sit solo second after 18 holes, one adrift of Campos. After three birdies against two bogeys on day two, he's in the exact same spot after 36 holes. The 40-year-old raced out with three straight circles on holes 1-3, but played his final 15 holes in birdie-less 2-over, squaring bogeys on 12 and 16. He digressed to 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, and went from 1.429 putts per GIR in R1 to a pedestrian 1.818 on day two.

George McNeill left his mark on Coco Beach Golf and Country Club, signing for a 7-under-par 31-34=65 during the first round of the Puerto Rico Open to stake claim of the early clubhouse lead.

In a classic case of course history versus recent form, McNeill arrived with three top 20s including a win at Coco Beach G&CC, but had missed cuts in 6-of-8 starts on the season. Course history prevailed today as the Florida resident landed 14 greens in regulation on his way to eight birdies. That included a four-hole birdie train that began on the par-5 second hole, as he made his way into the clubhouse. This goes in the books as his second-lowest round at Coco Beach G&CC, with a 64 in R2 of the 2013 edition his low. McNeill has proven to enjoy this venue year after year, so gamers should strap in and enjoy the ride.

George McNeill crafted a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in today's final round of the Valspar Championship for a four-day total of 1-under 283, up 12 spots on the live leaderboard to T11.

McNeill had two top 10s in nine previous visits, including runner-up in 2008. He entered the week with five missed cuts in six events on the season with his sole cash a T53 at the Honda in his last start. The Fort Myers, Florida, resident began his final frame on even-par (T23) after opening in 74-66-73, two off the overnight top 10. He split eight (of 13) fairways for a third straight day, and peppered a week-best 14 greens in regulation, registering a pedestrian 1.857 putts per GIR and a -0.729 in strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. The 40-year-old circled three -- each from inside of eight feet -- and squared two bogeys (back-to-back) on 15 and 16, the former a failed scramble and the latter a three-putt from 49'3".

George McNeill painted a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round of the Valspar Championship for a 36-hole total of 2-under 140, up 72 places on the live leaderboard to T11.

The Florida native currently resides in Fort Meyers, a short drive south down I-75 from the Copperhead Course at Innisbrook Resort. He missed the cut here last year (badly) in his ninth appearance after rounds of 72-78, and looked to be heading towards the same fate after a three-birdie six-bogey 74 in R1. However, McNeill also owns a solo seventh in 2014 and T2 in 2008 and flashed that form on day two, circling six, on just 11 greens in regulation, including three straight on Nos. 1-3 to begin his loop. His one retreat was a failed scramble at the par-4 ninth. The 40-year-old, who's made just one cut this season in six events (T53, Honda), improved to 3.887 in strokes gained: putting from a miserable -0.920 on day one. Four conversions in R2 traveled greater than 11 feet with a long of 45'7" at the par-4 third.

George McNeill bombarded PGA National's Champion Course with a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the opening round of this week's Honda Classic.

The Florida native arrived as somewhat of a course horse, posting top 15s in three of his last five Honda appearances. Many gamers were still skeptical after his 0-for-5 start to the season. A return to bermudagrass greens was the perfect cure as McNeill made putt after putt today. The longest was a 43'9" birdie bomb on the par-3 fifth hole. That was just the beginning though, as he rattled home seven total putts from outside 10 feet on the day. McNeill walked off the course with 6.692 strokes gained:putting next to his name. A regression with the flat stick is a guarantee, but he's already put himself in great position to cash his first paycheck of the season.

George McNeill contests his 10th edition of The Honda Classic this week in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

It's a coin-flip on McNeill this week at PGA National. On the one hand, he's got three top-12 finishes here in his last five tries, including T11/2015 and T12/2014. On the other hand, the FSU product is 0-for-5 this season and posted a dismal 72-84 (12-over-par) in his last start at the Farmers. As can be expected then, the 40-year-old ranks outside the top 150 on TOUR in just about every statistical category, including 198th in par-4 scoring (4.12), which will be a key metric this week at the par-70 layout.

George McNeill searches for his first taste of FedExCup points ahead of this week's CareerBuilder Challenge in partnership with the Clinton Foundation.

After finishing 62nd in the FEC standings during the 2014-15 campaign, he's kicked off the new season with an 0-for-3 goose egg. McNeill hasn't racked up double-digit missed cuts since 2010, so this is certainly a surprising start. His experience at these venues is better than most, as he took care of business at the 2006 Q-School Finals where he completed five of his six rounds at 3-under-par or better while playing the Nicklaus Tournament and TPC Stadium at PGA West. The upside is there for McNeill, but gamers are taking a big risk given his current form.
