Arjun Atwal posted minus-4 points in his opening round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.
We last saw the one-time PGA TOUR winner at the Sanderson Farms Championship where he withdrew at one round with an illness. His game was sickly today as he racked up four bogeys before a pair of birdies return him to zero on the round. Alas, a double bogey-bogey finish left a terrible taste in his mouth. Last year's cut fell at seven points, not that Atwal needs a reminder that he needs to post a big number on Friday to have a shot at the weekend. Thu, Aug 1, 2013 05:00:00 PM

Arjun Atwal is listed in the published field of next week's Reno-Tahoe Open.

He had to call it quits after last week's opening round in Mississippi due to an illness. Atwal has cashed in just one of six starts and entered this week ranked 248th in FedExCup points.

Arjun Atwal withdrew from the Sanderson Farms Championship following his opening round due to an illness.

Atwal submitted a 5-over-par 38-39=77 before calling it a week. He hit only half of his fairways and greens, and erased two birdies with five bogeys and one double. He's now 1-for-6 on the season on Past Champion status.

Arjun Atwal has been added to the published field of this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Atwal was the fifth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry thanks to four withdrawals and two others as alternates ahead of him. The one-time PGA TOUR winner hasn't cashed in three starts this year, but he placed T19 at TPC Southwind last year.

Arjun Atwal has been added to the published field of this week's Valero Texas Open.

Atwal was the sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry due to a high number of withdrawals today. Currently 0-for-2 on the season and relegated to the Past Champions category, the recently turned 40-year-old could use some of the mojo that led to a T17 at the VTO in its inaugural edition at TPC San Antonio in 2010. However, he chased it with a T51 in 2011 before missing the cut last year.

Arjun Atwal entered the final round of The McGladrey Classic in a tie for third, but dropped into a share of 10th with a 1-over par 36-35=71.

Atwal erased a birdie on the opening hole with a double bogey on the second. On the remaining 16 holes, he would alternate a birdie and a bogey, with the rest pars. While his 15 GIR were the most he'd landed all week, so too were the 33 putts needed to navigate Seaside. He is projected to have moved from 175th to 166th on the money list.

Arjun Atwal turned in a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The McGladrey Classic and shares third with D.J. Trahan at 11-under 199 entering the final round.

Atwal entered the week at 175th on the money list, and is currently projected outside the top 125 at 143rd even with a share of third. Though he found four birdies in his third lap around Seaside, he swallowed three bogeys as well. He ranks seventh in Strokes Gained-Putting for the week, but gave back .509 strokes to the field in the third round. He will tee it up on Sunday in desperate need of a strong finish.

Arjun Atwal spun a 7-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of The McGladrey Classic to assume sole possession of the 36-hole lead at 10-under 130.

At 175th on the money list and not yet exempt for 2013, the one-time PGA TOUR champ is leaving it all on Seaside this week. He's hit 28 greens and needed just 54 putts en route to 11 birdies, eight of which falling today. The set included respective conversions from 16'8", 13'6" and 19'9" at the first, second and fourth holes (to start his second nine). He's suffered just one bogey, that a result of a failed up-and-down attempt from the greenside rough at the par-4 14th hole in the second round. Atwal entered this week having gone 39 consecutive starts on the PGA TOUR without a top-15 payday.

Arjun Atwal enters The McGladrey Classic occupying the 175th spot on the money list and needing cash quickly if he hopes to avoid Q School.

Atwal won the 2010 Wyndham Championship after Monday qualifying, but his exemption from that victory expires at the end of this season. He ranks outside the top 100 in virtually every major statistical category and is 161st in the all-around ranking. After missing 10 of his first 11 cuts of 2012, he’s slowly regained some form, highlighted by a T19 at the FedEx St. Jude Classic in June. He tied for third on Sea Island in 2010, just two tournaments removed from the aforementioned Wyndham win, but missed the cut in last year’s edition.

Arjun Atwal tallied 14 points in his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open to reach the midpoint with 21.

This was a long-awaited showcase by the one-time PGA TOUR champ. He hit 13 greens in regulation and converted nine birdies on just 23 putts. At the time he signed his card, he sat 1 point back of the 36-hole clubhouse leaders, but the Indian led the field with 14 birdies.

Arjun Atwal enters the John Deere Classic with momentum on his side.

While the 2012 campaign hasn't been his best, he has managed to see the weekend in each of his last five starts beginning with the Byron Nelson. Another reason to be optimistic this week is his T18 in the 2011 edition at TPC Deere Run. To make a similar run this year, the putter will have to be better than his current 168th ranking in Strokes Gained-Putting.

Arjun Atwal carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Having missed 11 of 14 cuts, Atwal has been a non-factor for most of the year. Today's score ties his low aggregate. More relevantly, seven of his last 11 rounds are sub-70s, so he's turning a corner. He hit just nine greens at TPC Southwind today, but swallowed only two bogeys and still managed five birdies, including rolls of 14'2" and 56'10" at the first and 18th holes, respectively. The one-time PGA TOUR winner also converted a par save from 25'3" at the ninth hole.

Arjun Atwal had quite the colorful scorecard in the Wells Fargo Championship final round, and it led to a 3-under-par 33-36=69.

Atwal circled two eagles, three birdies and four bogeys in a round where he had the flat stick working. He took 24 putts to the tune of a 1.455 putting average while navigating Quail Hollow's greens. He ends the week at 7-under 281 in what will be his best finish of the season. His previous best, a T51 at the Transitions, came in his only made cut. He will now head to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida for THE PLAYERS.

Arjun Atwal is 7-under-par 68-69=137 through 36 holes of the Wells Fargo Championship.

He hit just five (of 14) fairways and 11 greens today, but went 7-for-7 in scrambling en route to a bogey-free loop of Quail Hollow. Atwal kept his card clean with a hole-out from nine yards out at the par-5 15th where he rinsed his tee ball, but the highlight of the day was a birdie putt that found the cup from 53'9" at the par-3 sixth. He's five shots back at the midpoint. This is just the second time he's survived a cut in 12 starts this year.

Arjun Atwal has been removed from the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The one-time PGA TOUR winner has endured an awful season, cashing in just one of 11 starts. Needless to say, if you haven't already jumped ship, walk that plank and don't look back.
