Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.
This will give him two weeks off since Wells Fargo. He's riding a consecutive cuts made streak of seven that was sparked with his first PGA TOUR victory (Puerto Rico). It remains his only top 10 of the season, but Cejka is 49th in the FedExCup standings and surely a cheap source of production down the stretch. May 25 - 12:15 PM

Alex Cejka tossed up a 3-under-par 34-35=69 for his opening round of THE PLAYERS.

Cejka is making his seventh appearance at TPC Sawgrass, a track that yielded a pair of top 15s among four paydays. So, the 44-year-old knows his way around and on the tricky greens. He missed only two (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. His only blemish was a bogey-5 at the fifth hole, but Cejka had already converted four birdies by then. The set included rolls from 15'3" and 10'11" at Nos. 15 and 2, respectively. Like so many before him, he signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Alex Cejka enters this week's PLAYERS slotted 40th in the FedExCup standings.

The last time Cejka teed it up at TPC Sawgrass was 2011 and he missed the cut. Overall, he's 4-for-6 at THE PLAYERS and his one top 10 was in 2009. In that edition, he held a five-shot lead after 54 holes, but faded to T9-finish with a final-round 79. The 40-year-old won the Puerto Rico Open in March and has cashed in four straight starts since, posting T53-T11-T31-T65.

Alex Cejka posted a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his third round of the Shell Houston Open, reaching the three-quarter pole in 9-under 207.

For the second straight day, he landed only 10 greens in regulation, only time time he manufactured a red number following Friday's even-par 72. It wasn't easy, however. Cejka circled six birdies, including a 43-footer at the par-5 eighth hole and a zero-putt five-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 10th. He also drops shots with bogeys at the par-4 fifth and 17th holes and added a double bogey-6 at No. 6. With one round remaining, the 44-year-old is positioned just four swings in arrears of the 54-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Alex Cejka treadmilled his way to an even-par 38-34=72 in today's second round of the Shell Houston Open.

So much for the golden opportunity to parlay a fine opening round of 65 in scorable conditions this morning. Cejka hit only 10 greens in regulation today. He penciled in three bogeys and needed a look from 15'3" at the par-3 16th and a chip-in from off the green eight yards away at the par-4 18th to drop for birdies just to remain level. Now 7-under 137, he's only two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders, so he can't complain about his position.
Apr 3 - 2:35 PM

Alex Cejka returned to competition in style with a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in today's opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

He was a last-minute scratch in San Antonio last week, so he's made amends with anyone he stood up. Cejka striped all 14 fairways and went 8-for-15 in scoring chances at the Golf Club of Houston today. He birdied all four par 5s, but his longest conversions disappeared from 17'7" at the par-3 16th and a respective 34'5" and 35'8" at the par-4 first and second holes. Cejka walked off with a bogey-4 at the par-3 ninth where he splashed a greenside bunker off the tee, but he signed his card slotted just two swings adrift of overnight leader Scott Piercy. At last check, Cejka's strokes gained: putting measured 3.347, good for fourth-highest in the field of 144.

Alex Cejka is slated to compete in next week's Shell Houston Open.

We'll slap a question mark beside him for next week. Remember that he was an 11th-hour withdrawal from this week's Valero Texas Open due to a back injury. He hasn't popped in the field in Houston since 2011, but if he's going to play in the Masters, the recent winner in Puerto Rico will need to repeat the success at the Golf Club of Houston.

Alex Cejka pulled out of this week's Valero Texas Open before his opening round, citing a back injury.

The PGA TOUR's media page on Twitter reported the injury, but it stated in the same tweet that Mike Weir withdrew due to a wrist injury 66 minutes after Weir himself tweeted that it's his forearm that forced him out. In any event, this will be Cejka's second straight week off after six in a row on the road. He chased his breakthrough title in Puerto Rico with a T53 at Copperhead. He's not yet exempt into the Masters and would need to win in Houston next week to secure an exemption. The top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking after the conclusion of action this weekend will be exempt. Cejka is currently 165th.

Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

This is quite understandable given he competed the last six weeks and picked off his first PGA TOUR victory. Cejka sits 28th in the FedExCup standings.

Alex Cejka continued his good play with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the opening round of the Valspar Championship.

No rest for the wicked. Sunday's winner in Puerto Rico piped 11 (of 13) fairways and stood over 15 opportunities to break par at Copperhead today. He converted for five birdies, including respective rolls from 16'5", 27'3" and 22'10" at Nos. 5, 7 and 10. With just one bogey on the card, Cejka sits two strokes off Brian Davis' pace.
Mar 12 - 6:24 PM

After Alex Cejka polished off the Puerto Rico Open with a 3-under-par 32-37=69 to post 7-under 281, he rolled in a birdie on the first hole of a five-way playoff to secure his first victory on the PGA TOUR.

Cejka was the third to conclude regulation with a share of the clubhouse lead, but it didn't seem likely that any of the guys on top would have a chance to win. Both of the golfers in the penultimate pairing -- Jon Curran and Emiliano Grillo -- sat at 8-under entering the par-5 18th. Both bogeyed to join the playoff. Cejka striped his tee ball at the par-5 18th in the playoff and eventually poured in a mid-range putt for a 4. He had to wait for Sam Saunders' try from nearer the hole, but considering that Cejka had waited 287 PGA TOUR starts for his first title, another couple of minutes didn't matter. He sprinted out of the gates at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. The 44-year-old birdied Nos. 1, 2, 5 and 6, but failed to find another par breaker. Instead, he sandwiched a bogey at the par-3 11th hole with 11 pars the rest of the way. He's now exempt into THE PLAYERS and PGA Championship, as well as fully exempt on the PGA TOUR through 2016-17.
Mar 8 - 4:34 PM

Overnight leader Alex Cejka blew up for a 3-over-par 35-40=75 in today's third round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Sigh. Cejka was sailing along bogey-free with one birdie through 14 holes before his engine failed. He closed bogey-par-bogey-double bogey to post 4-under 212, two strokes adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Scott Brown and Chris Smith. Cejka played 40 consecutive holes in bogey-free 8-under before the meltdown. As he knows as a non-winner in 286 previous starts on the PGA TOUR, the hardware isn't easy to secure, so he'll be attempting to achieve something for the first time as a 44-year-old touring professional.
Mar 7 - 3:59 PM

Alex Cejka crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 7-under 137 and assume outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This was as good as it gets in tricky scoring conditions at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Cejka split 10 (of 14) fairways and created 17 scoring opportunities. He buried five birdies, three of which on par 5s. He also walked off with birdie at the par-4 ninth. He's missed only seven GIR thus far and has just one bogey. Cejka is making his 287th career start on the PGA TOUR, but he's never won one.
Mar 6 - 3:40 PM

Alex Cejka turned in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 for his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Cejka got an early start on his mental approach this week after missing the cut at The Honda Classic. He sandwiched a lone bogey at the par-4 10th hole today with three birdies to post up one stroke off the clubhouse lead. The 44-year-old has been hovering in no-man's land for years. While he qualified for Veteran Membership on the PGA TOUR in 2012, he hasn't registered a top 10 on the circuit since the now-defunct Turning Stone Resort Championship in August of 2010.
Mar 5 - 11:27 AM

Alex Cejka burned Riviera Country Club for seven birdies en route to a 3-under-par 37-31=68 in today's opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

He also squared four bogeys, but shared the clubhouse lead when he walked off. Overall, he piped eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. His longest birdies disappeared from 25 feet and 12'7" at Nos. 3 and 8, respectively. At the time he signed his card, Cejka led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a split just north of 4.855. Cejka wasn't in the field when he woke up this morning, so this goes to show that you need to be prepared for any opportunity just in case it presents itself.
