Memphis native Casey Wittenberg turns his attention to his home course for an appearance at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.
After a standout amateur career, Wittenberg's talent hasn't still hasn't translated to the big stage. He led the 2012 Tour money list (also earned Tour Player of the Year) but he is just 31-for-82 on the PGA TOUR. Only four of those finishes have landed inside the top 10. He's played in just two PGA TOUR events since 2014 (MCs at the 2014 U.S. Open and 2016 Farmers). Down on the Tour he is 2-for-6 this season, although he did pick up a win as recently as the 2017 Louisiana Open. Growing up with TPC Southwind as his home course, this could be a week to kick his career back into gear. However, he is 3-for-8 here over his career with nothing better than a T52 (2005).

Overnight co-leader Casey Wittenberg spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the El Bosque Mexico Championship to post 11-under 133 at the break and share the lead with Casey Wittenberg for the second consecutive night.

At least they'll play together on Saturday, so they can compare notes. The duo holds a one-shot margin over Kevin Tway. They're three clear of Luke List and Chase Wright. Wittenberg poured in four birdies today to total 12 for the week. He's dropped only one shot. Scorecard data isn't available, at least in real time, but the cut fell at even-par 144.

Casey Wittenberg opened the El Bosque Mexico Championship with a 7-under-par 34-31=65 to co-lead.

It's not inaccurate to say that Wittenberg's career has not followed the projected arc in the wake of a successful collegiate career at Oklahoma State University. He was the Tour's earnings leader in 2012, but couldn't stick in the big leagues for the second time in two tries. After returning to the developmental circuit in 2014, he finished a forgettable 71st on the money list. Now 30 years of age, Wittenberg is 113th this season with three paydays in five starts. Today's loop of El Bosque Golf Club was a solid reminder that he can still stick. He covered a lone bogey with eight birdies. It's his lowest aggregate since he carded the same in the third round of the News Sentinel Open where he placed T14 last August, the site of his last top 40.

Casey Wittenberg qualified for his seventh U.S. Open and will tee it up at Pinehurst No. 2 this week.

There's something about the 36-hole sectional qualifier that appeals to the former PGA TOUR member, as he once again punched his ticket that way at the Memphis, Tennessee sectional. He's made two cuts in the national championship, tying for 36th in 2004 and sharing 10th in 2012. Of note, he missed the cut at the 2005 edition held at Pinehurst No. 2. He's made a modest six of 11 Tour cuts this season, with a lone top 10.

Casey Wittenberg makes his fifth Tour start of the year at the Chitimacha Louisiana Open.

Wittenberg is the winner of the 2012 event and graduated to the 2013 PGA TOUR, but failed to retain his card. Back in the trenches again, he's made three of his four cuts to start the season. His highlight was a T5 in the Brasil Champions. This is the fourth consecutive week the Tour has been in action, with each tournament in a different country. One can't rule out some jet lag at this point.

Casey Wittenberg enters the Wyndham Championship having missed 10 of his last 12 cuts.

The top man on the Tour money list in 2012 is in serious jeopardy of headed back to the junior circuit in 2014 if he can’t get it figured out this week. At 147th on the money list and 161st in the FedExCup standings, he’ll need to be on the front page of the leaderboard come Sunday afternoon or it’s off to the Tour playoffs.

Casey Wittenberg take his first swing at The Old White TPC in The Greenbrier Classic.

Wittenberg was tracking well for the year when he picked up his first top 10 at THE PLAYERS. After that T8, he's missed six of his last seven cuts with a T72 at the Travelers Championship the lone payday. He's faded all the way to 151st in the FedExCup standings, sitting on the outside looking in for the Playoffs and a spot on TOUR in 2013-14.

Casey Wittenberg has been added to the published field of this week's Memorial.

Wittenberg was granted one of the remaining five sponsor exemptions into the field of 120. The 2012 Tour money leader sits a disappointing 137th in FedExCup points this season due to missing 10 of 16 cuts. He'll be making his first start at Muirfield Village.

Casey Wittenberg had a front-row seat for Tiger Woods' win at THE PLAYERS, turning in a 3-over-par 37-38=75 in the final round and sharing eighth at 7-under 281.

Wittenberg moves to 127th in the FedExCup standings with his performance this week, which is his first top 10 of the 2013 season. With momentum on his side, he heads to Texas for the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Casey Wittenberg ended his third round of THE PLAYERS with back-to-back-to-back birdies, signing for a 2-under-par 37-33=70.

Wittenberg trails his third-round playing partner and leader David Lingmerth by a shot at 10-under 206. Wittenberg's round was a meager 1-over through 15 holes, with one birdie and two bogeys on the card before he came to the par-5 16th. A 6'8" birdie at 16 was followed by a 4'7" effort on the par-3 17th, then he capped off his round early Sunday morning with a 39'5" bomb on the difficult 18th. That proved to be a two-shot swing on the leaderboard and leaves him with a chance to claim his first PGA TOUR win at TPC Sawgrass Sunday afternoon.

Casey Wittenberg backed up his opening 67 at THE PLAYERS with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to reach the halfway point in 8-under 136, three shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit 12 greens in regulation today and needed a couple of pick-me-ups to keep the pedal down. After negotiating a birdie from 38'2" at the par-3 17th to get back to even on the day, he birdied 18 and 1 to go 2-under through 10 holes. A zero-putt eight-yarder for par from the fringe at 5 was nifty. Wittenberg then holed a seven-yarder from the fringe for birdie at 7 before closing out with another clutch par save, this time from 17'4" at 9.

Casey Wittenberg turned in a 5-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

Wittenberg is lucky to be in the field. He's 160th in FedExCup points but earned the exemption when he finished atop the 2012 Tour money list. Today at TPC Sawgrass, he hit 14 greens in regulation and swallowed just one bogey, a 5 at the closing 18th hole. Prior to that, he rolled in six birdies, the most notable a beauty from 33-and-a-half feet at the par-4 fourth hole. He also poured in a par save from 20'3" at 9. Wittenberg signed his card sitting four strokes off the early clubhouse lead.

Casey Wittenberg came to the ninth hole, his 18th, of his second round needing a birdie to move the cut line at the RBC Heritage to 1-over-par 143, but when he could only muster a par it meant a record-tying 91 players secured the 36 hole cut at 2-over 144 and an MDF looms.

There were four conceivable scenario's that would have prevented this many players from making the cut, the most likely being Jesper Parnevik holing a 5'5" par attempt on the 18th out of the gate. Ryan Palmer, Nicolas Colsaerts and Wittenberg all had opportunities to make a late birdie and bump the cut to 1-over but failed. Given the late start to the third round, this is a nightmare scenario for tournament officials. The 91 players making the cut ties a PGA TOUR record set in 1981 when 91 players also cashed checks at the Travelers Championship.

Casey Wittenberg signed for a 4-over-par 38-37=75 following his opening round of the RBC Heritage.

Good news, bad news. After withdrawing early from each of his last two commitments, he stuck to this one. Of course, the result is hardly impressive. He hit only 10 greens in regulation, bogeyed all three par 5s and circled only two birdies. His strangest experience occurred at the par-4 14th hole, however. After yanking his tee ball left of the green and sitting nine yards from the cup, Wittenberg pitched over the green. His ball came to rest 10 yards away in the fringe, but he holed from there for par.

Casey Wittenberg is listed in the published field of next week's RBC Heritage.

Wittenberg has withdrawn early from his last two commitments (Houston, Valero). No news has surfaced to explain his decision for the time off, but our philosophy has always been that if a golfer has pulled out of at least two straight starts before teeing it up, he's assumed to be dealing with an injury or personal matter. Harbour Town suits his game, so despite his mysterious schedule, don't hedge against him next week.
