With preferred lies in effect, World No. 196 Alex Cejka signed for a 2-under-par 34-35=69 after the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, dipping two places to T9 on 11-under 273 but posting his second straight top 10 after a P2 at last week's Shriners. UPDATE: Cejka now has 33 career top-10 finishes on TOUR, but this is the first time he's posted back-to-back top 10s.
Not counting the unofficial World Cup in 2009 (T7) and a T8 the month prior at the Frys.com -- and repeating that same cycle in 2007 -- this is the 46-year-old's first consecutive top-10 finishes on TOUR, EVER. That's saying something as he was making his 359th career start. It's his third top 25 at the OHL among three cashes in seven tries and first top 10, supplanting T16 in 2015. After kicking off in 69-67-68, the one-time TOUR winner began T7 on 9-under, six shy of 54-hole leader and eventual champ Patton Kizzire. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.692 putts per GIR with 28 total putts. The Las Vegas resident outpaced bogey-5 at hole 3 and a walk-off double bogey-6 at 18 with five circles at 5-7, 10 and 14. He goes for three in a row at this coming week's RSM. UPDATE: Cejka WD from RSM on Monday. Nov 12 - 8:38 PM

Alex Cejka maintained a hot hand during round two of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, signing for a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 that moves him to 6-under 136 heading into the weekend.

Cejka arrived at last week's Shriners with zero form to speak of. A home game in Las Vegas helped him find his game, eventually losing in a playoff to Patrick Cantlay. That form is carrying over this week, even as he crossed the border to Mexico. Yesterday was all about scrambling for Cejka as he carded just one blemish (double bogey) despite landing just nine greens. Today, he picked up the ball-striking to pelt 15 greens, allowing him a stress-free, 4-birdie round. Cejka doesn't appear to be slowing down and gamers should enjoy the ride.

Two-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 300 Alex Cejka twirled a week-low 8-under-par 33-30=63 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to conclude on 9-under 275, up 27 places on the live leaderboard to T2 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Cejka was matched by Whee Kim and eventual champ Patrick Cantlay, and then lost to Cantlay's par with bogey-5 on the second playing of the par-4 18th in sudden death. He drops to 1-1 in playoffs and records his fourth runner-up finish in 358 career starts, first since T2 here 106 weeks ago.

This was the Las Vegas resident's 1,056th career TOUR round and ties a career low, also carding 8-under 63 in R2 at the 2004 Booz Allen (TPC Avenel). He was making his 12th appearance with one prior top 10, a T2 in 2016 (67-70-66-66). This was the 46-year-old's third start of the season following a DQ last week (Sanderson Farms) and a MC at the Safeway, and will be his first top 10 since a back-door T9 at the Greenbrier back in July, closing with 6-under 64. After kicking off 66-74-72, he began T29 on 1-under, two shy of the overnight top 10. On eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, Cejka squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 2, smothered by nine birdies at 1, 7, 8, 10, 13 and four straight at 15-18, four from between 10 and 17 feet, adding a chip-in 3 at 17 from 46'5" away. He posted 3.386 SG: Approach-the-Green, 2.301 SG: Around-the-Green, and 1.806 SG: Putting with 24 total putts.

Las Vegas resident Alex Cejka bombarded TPC Summerlin with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-34=66 during the opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, placing him one stroke off the early lead.

Cejka entered the week in horrid form, posting just two top 40s in his last 15 starts. A return home appears to have corrected that form, as he peppered 14 greens today and converted with the flat stick. That included a four-pack of birdies from outside 11 feet. The longest came at the par-3 14th, circling a birdie from 35'4". Despite his recent slide, Cejka has converted on fast starts during his slump. He's posted top 15s in each of the last two tournaments where he positioned himself inside the top 50 after day one.
Nov 2 - 8:23 PM

World No. 289 Alex Cejka was disqualified after a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

As of press time, no reason has been gleaned as to the reason for the DQ, his sixth in 357 career events. After an opening 72, the 46-year-old was 1-over total, two outside the projected cut line. He finished last season 149th in the FedExCup standings, good for conditional status, but recorded a T31 and solo 4th in three starts in the Web.com Tour Finals to regain fully exempt status (33rd in the WCT Priority Rankings).
Oct 27 - 7:27 PM

World No. 243 Alex Cejka twirled a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 271, up 24 places on the live leaderboard to T8 and tying the low round of the day with Phil Mickelson, amateur Joaquin Niemann and Ryan Blaum. UPDATE: With play completed, Cejka finished a season-best T9.

This was the 45-year-old's third appearance and second cash (T60/2015). After opening in 66-71-70, he began T32 on 3-under, five adrift of the overnight top 10. The Las Vegas resident striped 13 (of 14) fairways and found 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.189 strokes off-the-tee and 0.835 around-the-green. He carded six birdies at holes 4, 8-10, 12 and 14, four from between 11 and 31 feet, including two 30-footers. Cejka posted 1.571 putts per GIR and 3.114 SG: Putting, needing 26 total putts. For the week, he totaled 16 birdies against seven bogeys en route to his third top 25 of the season in 23 starts and possibly a first top 10 (T14, Valspar).
Jul 9 - 3:50 PM

Alex Cejka has withdrawn from the Wells Fargo Championship, citing a back injury, he was 4-over thru 24 holes before the WD. UPDATE: Cejka returned to action at THE PLAYERS, recording a T79 (MDF).

Cejka opened his week an even-par 37-35=72 in round one. He returned to Eagle Point Golf Club today and squared four bogeys over his opening six holes, finding three bunkers along the way and three-jacking the par-5 12th from 18'1". The German is generally great in windy conditions and was just three strokes off the cut line at the time of his WD. Nagging injuries are nothing new for Cejka as this goes in the books as his 20th career mid-tournament WD (343 career starts).
May 5 - 6:09 PM

Alex Cejka and Soren Kjeldsen enjoyed a bogey-free 10-under-par 32-30=62 on Day 2 of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 12-under 132, currently T3 and three back of 36-hole clubhouse leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith.

In yesterday's foursome action (alternate shot), the duo carved out a 2-under 70 (five birdies, two bogeys) to sit T19. They got things going in R2, circling 10 birdies, matching the low round of the day thus far with three other squads. Each squared one bogey on their side of the card, at the fifth and 11th, but as is the whole point of best-ball, the other had conventional, no-stress pars, so no drops occurred. Cejka, however, was responsible for eight of the 10 birdies, including six on the back side at TPC Louisiana, while Kjeldsen got the party started at the second and sixth.
Apr 28 - 2:08 PM

Alex Cejka ended his week with a disqualification from the Shell Houston Open, following rounds of 70-77=137 (+3).

The German was in good position after a 2-under 70 in his opening lap at the Golf Club of Houston. He returned on Friday and got his round started on the 10th tee. Three holes later he climbed to 3-under on the week, but followed that up with a double bogey at the par-5 seventh, four-putting from 100'4" to rack up those strokes. He would miss a 6'11" putt at the next hole to add another blemish to his card. Things really went sour after the turn when he three-jacked the par-5 fourth, leading to a double bogey and then found water at the 5th before three-putting (again) for a triple bogey. Cejka did rebound to birdie the next hole and closed out his round before getting tagged with a DQ. There is no word at the cause of the WD but this could be a case of Cejka walking off the course in frustration after taking 32 swipes with the flat stick, not even bothering to sign his scorecard (but that is just speculation). We will update if any official word is released on this DQ.
Mar 31 - 8:39 PM

Past champ and World No. 178 Alex Cejka fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach 10-under 134, up 13 places on the live leaderboard into an eight-way T4, one back of co-clubhouse leaders Bryson DeChambeau and D.A. Points.

This is the 46-year-old's seventh appearance with three prior top 25s and one top 10, his sudden-death win in 2015. That remains his lone TOUR title in 337 career starts. At the 2015 edition, Cejka led by one after 36 holes (70-67), T5 thru 54 holes with 75, and joined a 5-man playoff with a closing 69. This is his 11th start of the season with one top 25 among six cuts made, a T14 at the Valspar in his most recent start (68-70-72-69). The Las Vegas resident opened with a five-birdie one-bogey 68 and with lift, clean and place in effect for R2, circled six on 14 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation. He got 17 holes completed on Friday, returning on Saturday morning to 2-putt the par-5 18th for a walk-off 4.
Mar 25 - 7:32 AM

Alex Cejka pieced together a 1-under-par 33-37=70 during round two of Valspar Championship, arriving at the midpoint on 4-under 138.

The German raced out to 7-under on the week after birdies at 1, 4, 7, and 10. That's where the fun stopped as he squared bogeys at three of the closing five holes, two of them coming at the Snake Pit. Looking at the raw stats, he found six more fairways today and landed four more greens, but yesterday's round resulted in a bogey-free 68 while today he mustered up a 1-under 70. It's a funny game sometimes, but Cejka is still in good position heading into the weekend.
Mar 10 - 1:06 PM

The first round of the Valspar Championship was suspended due to darkness at 6:43 p.m. ET with play set to resume at 7:40 a.m. on Friday.

The culprit for this suspension was the one-hour fog delay that took place this morning. Before the horn sounded, Alex Cejka successfully finished his round, styling a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-33=68 to position himself just outside the top 10 as the horn sounded. All three birdies were converted from long distance (11'3", 27'10", and 53'6"). That gained him 3.938 strokes putting over the field. There were 19 golfers stranded due to darkness and they will return tomorrow morning to finish out their rounds as soon as the fog allows them.
Mar 9 - 6:56 PM

Battling Monterey Peninsula Country Club’s Shore Course in round two of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am, Alex Cejka coasted to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-35=66, giving him a two-round tally of 5-under 138.

Cejka weathered the storm in round one, surviving Pebble Beach Golf Links with an even-par 72. Luckily, his two-day round at Monterey Peninsula CC will help make up some ground, as he circled five birdies while maintaining a clean card. The German made it look easy with 10 (of 13 fairways) and 15 greens in regulation. He is making his 13th appearance at this event, and will now have his eyes on a new personal best, previously a T10 during the 2010 edition. Next up for Cejka is a round-three appointment with Spyglass Hill Golf Course.
Feb 11 - 11:45 AM

Alex Cejka cruised to a 4-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, staking an early spot inside the top 10 with play still in progress on day one.

Cejka arrived with missed cut in his last three starts, but today was a different story. He landed 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.38 strokes approaching-the-green in the process. His flat stick made a few waves, as well. Right after making the turn, he saved par from 18'1" at the par-4 second and then splashed home a 32'8" birdie bomb at the par-4 sixth hole. In addition to the poor form, Cejka also entered the week with a missed cut or WD in each of his last six visits to TPC Scottsdale. Cejka shook off the poor converging trends and currently sits T9 on the live leaderboard.
Feb 2 - 6:03 PM

Germany field a blend of experience and callowness in the 2016 World Cup of Golf at Kingston Heath Golf Club in Melbourne, Australia this week.

Other than the home team few in the field boast the experience of playing in Australia that Alex Cejka has. His last two appearances might be the most instructive: in 2005 (yes, quite a long time ago) he was T8 in this event after rounds of 65-68-64 at Victoria GC, like this week's course a Melbourne sandbelt venue. However his most recent start down under was a MC here at Kingston Heath itself in the 2009 JBWere Masters (with rounds of 76-80). He missed the cut in the OHL Classic last time out but prior to that he reeled off six straight top 30s. Team-mate Stephan Jaeger missed out on graduation from the Web.com Tour this year (despite winning the Ellie Mae Classic after a round one 58) and also missed the cut on his first start of the season, the Sanderson Farms Championship. Germany is a two-time winner of the event, in 1990 and 2006, both times with Bernhard Langer part of the team.
