Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship prior to the start of the event, citing a lower back injury, putting an end to his 2015-16 season.
The German has now withdrawn pre-tournament from the last three events.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. Aug 31 - 11:05 PM

Prior to the start of the event, Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Barclays, citing a pinched nerve as the reason.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Prior to the start of the event, Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Wyndham Championship.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

After just missing out at the Powell, Ohio, U.S. Open sectional qualifier, Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic. Charlie Wi will take his place in the field.

The WDs keep piling up, as expected the day after "the longest day in golf." Cejka posted rounds of 4-under-par 69-69=138 at yesterday's sectional, falling one shy of the qualification line. He also missed out on the second alternate spot this morning, as Adam Hadwin walked out of the 10-for-1 playoff victorious. Prior to the WD, Cejka was set to make his seventh career start at TPC Southwind, with a T8 (2008) on his resume. Given his play at yesterday's sectional, this is likely not injury-related and gamers should feel free to give him a look whenever he tees it up next.

Alex Cejka settled for a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in today's third round of the Memorial to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 210.

After making the cut on the number (70-72) in his eighth appearance, the 45-year-old had moved all the way inside the top 10 on Saturday after playing his first 17 holes in bogey-free 6-under. Unfortunately, he took some luster off with a double bogey-6 at the 18th after putting his tee ball into the water. Cejka still bested his playing competitor Bubba Watson by six strokes and moved 28 places on the live leaderboard to T34. Before the disappointing finish, he circled five on 13 greens in regulation and added a hole-out birdie-4 at the fifth from 77 yards away.
Jun 4 - 12:15 PM

Alex Cejka turned in a 2-over-par 39-35=74 after the final round of THE PLAYERS for a 72-hole total of 8-under 280, down seven places into a three-way T9, seven adrift of champion Jason Day.

Cejka began the final frame in a three-way T2 on 10-under after opening his eighth PLAYERS in twin 67s and 72, four back of Day. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered just six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, posting a -2.898 in SGTTG, his first negative effort in that stat for the tourney. On the week, he finished 44th in SGTTG but No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 8.565, including 1.135 in R4. The 44-year-old totaled 19 birdies, four in the finale, against nine bogeys (four/R4) and one double which he carded on the par-4 seventh on Sun. Cejka's T9 matches a personal best at TPC Sawgrass (2009) and is his third top 10 of the season on 16 starts but first of the calendar year.
May 15 - 8:16 PM

Alex Cejka rallied for an even-par 36-36=72 in today's third round of THE PLAYERS to post 10-under 206, up one on the leaderboard into a three-way T2, four shy of 54-hole leader Jason Day.

Cejka began the third round in a three-way T3 on 10-under after opening in twin 67s, five back of Day. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, eeking-out a 0.064 in SGTTG but wielded the flat stick to 3.528 in SGP, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 7.434. The 45-year-old was 2-over on his lap thru 15 holes, erasing a 25-inch birdie-3 at four with bogeys on holes 5, 13 and 15 on failed scrambles, but circled the 16th and the 17th from 16'3" and 22'5", respectively, to get back to level. Cejka had a 20'4" birdie try at the last to get into the final Sun. pairing, but missed short.
May 14 - 7:59 PM

Alex Cejka cruised to a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during round two of THE PLAYERS, grabbing an early share of the clubhouse lead at 10-under 134.

The German opened his day with a 20-foot birdie splash at the par-4 first hole and backed it up with three more putts from outside seven feet over his next four holes. The last of those came at the par-4 fifth hole, firing one in from 19'10" for birdie. As good as his putter was, his ball-striking was steady as well, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and landing 16 greens in regulation. Cejka has some past experience here, recording a pair of top 15s in seven tries, so it won't be too surprising to see him hang around over the weekend.
May 13 - 1:20 PM

Alex Cejka submitted a birdie-free, 4-over-par 39-37=76 in round one of this week's Shell Houston Open before withdrawing due to a neck injury.

The German made waves last week with pre-tournament talks of a hand injury as he prepped for his Puerto Rico Open title defense. He battled through that with flying colors en route to a T11 finish. Today was a different story as he landed just 11 greens in regulation and lost 1.79 strokes with the flat stick. His neck was also cited as the reason for the mid-tournament WD earlier this season at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, so gamers should take note of this recurring issue and build that into their risk assessment moving forward.
