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Alex Cejka has withdrawn from the Wells Fargo Championship, citing a back injury, he was 4-over thru 24 holes before the WD.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.

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.

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.

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.
