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.

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.

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.

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 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.

Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship prior to the start of the event, citing a lower back injury, putting an end to his 2015-16 season.

The German has now withdrawn pre-tournament from the last three events. He's fought quite a few injuries over the course of the season but still managed to tie his career-bests in top 10s (4) and top 25s (9) in a single season. At 73rd in the FedExCup standings, he won't crack the field at next week's BMW Championship. The 45-year-old is becoming a walking injury bug, but he remains a worthy fantasy option when healthy. Cejka teed it up in four events during the fall wraparound schedule this year, so gamers should keep an eye out for a fall return, assuming his health cooperates.

Prior to the start of the event, Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Barclays, citing a pinched nerve as the reason.

The German has been battling injuries all year. He withdrew mid-event with a neck injury at the Waste Management Phoenix Open as well as the Shell Houston Open. Sandwiched in-between those, he also battled a hand injury ahead of his title defense at the Puerto Rico Open. After a T21 at the Olympic Golf Competition in Rio two weeks ago, he backed out of last week's Wyndham Championship prior to the start of the event. At 59th in the FedExCup standings, he will have a chance to tee it up at TPC Boston next week, if his health cooperates. Since we are in the Playoffs, he will not be replaced in the field, which now sits at 120 golfers instead of the 125 max.

Prior to the start of the event, Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Wyndham Championship. He will be replaced in the field by D.J. Trahan.

Cejka was set to make his eighth start at this event, with nothing better than a T37 (2007) on his resume. After a week of grinding at the Olympic Golf Course in Rio, he's decided to take a pass. In Rio, he pieced together rounds of 67-71-74-69 to record a T21. A good effort despite the backpedaling Saturday. Cejka sits at 57th in the FedExCup race and there is no reason to suspect an injury here, but we will update if any news pops up. For now, make sure to remove him from any weekly rosters at the Wyndham.

World No. 119 Alex Cejka patched together an even-par 33-38=71 in today's second round of the Rio 2016 Olympic Games to reach halftime on 4-under 138, down three spots on the live leaderboard to T7.

The 45-year-old landed 11 (of 13) fairways for a second straight lap but digressed to just nine greens in regulation. He got up-and-down to save par seven of nine times, including an 18-foot one-putt par at the third and a 17'5" par save at the eighth. The Czech of German nationality bogeyed Nos. 12, 14 and 15 (3-putt), but balanced the card with three birdies on 7, 9 and 18. His long conversion was 23'9" at the par-4 ninth and opened his scoring with a hole-out birdie from 50 yards away at the par-4 seventh.

Alex Cejka pieced together a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the opening round of the Olympic Golf Competition in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.

The German split 11 (of 13) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation. He circled back-to-back birdies at Nos. 2 and 3 before carding five straight pars. After the turn he added another circle at the par-5 10th before a pair of hiccups gave two strokes back at Nos. 13 and 14. Cejka bounced back nicely with a three-hole birdie train to close the round. World No. 119 entered the week on the heels of two straight top 15s and he's keeping that momentum rolling through one round in Rio.

Alex Cejka orchestrated a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to post 9-under 271, up 20 places to T13 with play still in progress.

The Czech, of German nationality, will be joining Martin Kaymer on the German Olympic squad in Rio. He was one of six playing this week at the Travelers heading to Brazil and of the six, he's tied with Patrick Reed for low Olympian. The 45-year-old was making his fourth appearance at TPC River Highlands with a previous best of T53 on debut in 2006. He posted rounds of 68-69-69 and ended with a six-birdie one-bogey 65. The 65 is a season best in 67 rounds, eclipsing 66 four times, and secured his ninth top 25 of the season in 22 events.

Alex Cejka patched together a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 10-under 278, down one place into a four-way T5, two in arrears to champion Jhonattan Vegas.

This was the 45-year-old's seventh appearance with a previous best of T10 in 2007 at Angus Glen GC. He began the final frame in a two-way T4 on 7-under, two back of overnight leader Brandt Snedeker. Playing out of the third-to-last pairing, he mustered just six (of 14) fairways but hit 12 greens in regulation, posting 3.059 SG: Tee-to-Green but a dismal -1.946 in SG: Putting. The Las Vegas resident outpaced bogeys on Nos. 4 and 14, with birdies at holes 2, 5 and 15 and an eagle at the par-5 13th from 11'11". He departs with his fourth top 10 of the season in 21 starts and bumps 17 spots to 56th in the FedExCup standings.

Alex Cejka shot a 3-under-par 32-37=69 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 7-under 209, up seven spots on the live leaderboard to T3, two back of 54-hole clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 45-year-old opened his seventh appearance in 71-69 to sit in a six-way logjam on 4-under (T10), three back of 36-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Luke List. He landed eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.455 putts per GIR. The Las Vegas resident went out in bogey-free 3-under, highlighted by a 15-footer for birdie-4 at the second and a 23'6" roll for a '3' on the par-4 sixth. After the break, he stumbled to bogey-5s at 10, 11 and 14 (failed scrambles), but cancelled them with birdies on each of the three back-nine par 5s, including a walk-off 4 from 84'6". Cejka's putt on the last was the longest of his career and the longest on TOUR this season. VIDEO link below.

Alex Cejka heads home to Germany for this week’s BMW International Open on a Gut Larchenhof course he knows well.

Through the 2002, 03 and 04 seasons Cejka was a monster on home turf. He completed 8 events in Germany in that period, never finishing outside the top 16 and was 5 times a top 5 finisher, including 2 runner-up finishes. In more recent times, since settling his career in the States, he’s been a less frequent starter and perhaps naturally rather less consistent, but his course form is very solid. He withdrew on his first start after 18 holes, but is 10-for-10 since, including 7 top 30 finishes. He also broke 70 in all four rounds the last time he played the event in 2014. T9 at the Players Championship, when T2 after 54 holes, he has to be a strong consideration this week.
