Alex Cejka spun a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and enters the final round stalking a top 10 at 11-under 202.
The Tour graduate bagged six birdies and an eagle, surrendering two bogeys on his navigation of TPC Summerlin. His eagle came from 26'11" at the par-5 ninth, and he also saw three of his birdies fall from longer than 11 feet. Though he hit just 12 GIR, he gained over two strokes with the flat stick. A nice finish on Sunday would be nice for his reshuffle number in an effort to ensure as many starts as possible in the future. Oct 18 - 6:23 PM

Alex Cejka secured his PGA TOUR card for the 2014-15 season after starting off the Tour season with a win and runner-up finish.

Cejka earned $221,400 in the first two tournaments of the season, which would have placed him 13th on the final money list had he stopped there. Instead, he played 13 more events throughout the season to improve his standing to sixth for the regular season. That was good enough to place him 15th in the opening reshuffle. Cejka is 157-for-275 in his career on the PGA TOUR but at 43-years old, his peak years are likely behind him.

Alex Cejka shot a 1-under-par 32-38=70 in his opening round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open on the Tour.

He had our attention today because he withdrew from last week's Wyndham Championship prior to his third round with a neck injury. Today at Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge, he split 11 (of 13) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. Cejka sat bogey-free 3-under through 11 holes, but squared bogeys at 3, 5 and 7 to drift back to level. However, he grabbed one last birdie at the par-4 eighth to reel in the red number. He's going to be on the PGA TOUR full-time in 2014-15, and he's already a Veteran Member on the circuit, so there will be worse choices than the 43-year-old come draft day.

Alex Cejka has withdrawn from the Wyndham Championship due to a neck injury.

He was scheduled to go out with Mark Wilson at 8:26 a.m. ET. Cejka survived the cut on the number at 2-under-par 68-70=138 with a birdie on his 36th hole. He entered the week 226th in the FedExCup standings, so cracking the top 125 was never all that realistic. However, at fifth on the Tour money list, so he will be a member of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR via that metric. If he's able, look for him again at next week's WinCo Foods Portland Open.

Alex Cejka has been added to the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Cejka was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. Eight withdrew to open the door for the 43-year-old. He's fifth in Tour earnings, so he's known for a while that he'll be fully exempt on the PGA TOUR again in 2014-15. So, why not tee it up in the regular-season finale at Sedgefield where the purse is $5.3 million? Cejka is 4-for-5 on the circuit this season, but hasn't cracked a top 50.
Aug 11 - 1:42 PM

Alex Cejka has been removed from the published field of this week's John Deere Classic.

At this point, he's exchanging a potential payday for some rest. Cejka has competed in each of the five previous weeks in three different countries on three tours. The run includes a T60 at the U.S. Open, a T12 at the BMW International Open and a T7 in Nova Scotia last week. He's currently third in Tour earnings, so we'll see him full-time on the PGA TOUR next season. NOTE: Alternates Peter Lonard and Skip Kendall also withdrew as alternates. They are scheduled to compete in this week's Utah Championship on the Tour.
Jul 9 - 2:56 PM

Alex Cejka spun respective bogey-free rounds of 67 and 65 in today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Lake Merced Golf Club and Olympic Club's Ocean Course in Daly City, California, en route to comfortable medalist honors among five survivors.

Cejka will play in the major for the first time since 2008. He's missed five of seven cuts lifetime, but both of his paydays are top 15s. Steven Alker of New Zealand was the runner-up today at 8-under 70-65=135. He tied for 45th in his U.S. Open debut last year. Stanford University's soon-to-be sophomore Maverick McNealy finished alone in third place at 7-under 67-69=136. Kevin Sutherland (70-67=137) shared fourth with B1G Player of the Year, Brian Campbell of the University of Illinois (67-70=137). Notables that failed to qualify include: 138--Craig Barlow ... 141--Jason Gore; original "Big Break" champ Justin Peters ... 143--Jeff Brehaut ... 148--2008 U.S. Amateur Public Links champ Jack Newman ... 153--Mike Springer.
Jun 2 - 10:48 PM

Alex Cejka opened the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 and sits two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Cejka opted not to compete in the BMW Charity Pro-Am on the Tour even though he's third on its money list with a victory this season. Frankly, he may not need to play that circuit again this season as his $238K is likely to land inside the top 25 and secure a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. However, he's already eligible in the big leagues via Veteran Membership, status that warranted entry into the HPBNC on merit as the last man in the field. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens at Las Colinas en route to six birdies against three bogeys. His longest conversion measured a mere 10'2" at the par-4 14th hole, site of his first birdie of the round.

Alex Cejka has been added to the published field of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Cejka started the week as the fourth alternate. He gained entry when Patrick Reed withdrew. This will mark Cejka's third start of the season. While he survived both previous cuts, he's yet to post a top 50. TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas has been mildly generous to him as he's picked off a top 30 in three of his last four trips.
May 13 - 4:24 PM

Alex Cejka managed a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in the opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

He missed only two (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation en route to four birdies against a lone bogey at the par-5 17th hole. Cejka has Veteran Membership on the PGA TOUR. This is his second appearance of the season (T56, Pebble Beach).
Mar 6 - 4:07 PM

Alex Cejka captured his first Tour title at the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship when the final round of the tournament was washed out and his 14-under-par 199 was declared the winning score.

Cejka was even through nine holes in the finale, but a fourth consecutive day of rain has essentially negated all play in the final round. The 54-hole scores are deemed to be the official final standings. The hard-luck loser under this arrangement was Andres Gonzales, as he was 6-under-par through 16 holes in the fourth round and had moved all the way into solo third. For Cejka, this is his first Tour win and goes a long way towards securing him a spot on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR. Following two weeks off, the Tour will return to action on March 6th at the Chile Classic.
Feb 16 - 3:07 PM

Alex Cejka carded an 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship to take the lead through 54 holes at 14-under 199.

The German circled nine birdies to just one bogey on his lap around Bogota Country Club in a round that was largely contested on Sunday morning. He'll have a quick turnaround, as they will keep the same threesomes in the final round that was already under way at the time of his posting. A veteran of 30 Tour and 270 PGA TOUR starts, he's never won on either tour. Cejka enjoys a three-stroke advantage over Andrew Putnam entering the finale.
Feb 16 - 11:48 AM

Alex Cejka has been added to the published field of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Cejka received a sponsor exemption into the tournament. It'll be his ninth consecutive appearance and 10th overall. Despite missed cuts in his last two visits, he has some success at Pebble Beach with a record that includes a T10 here in 2010 and a T8 in the U.S. Open that same summer. He returned and finished T21 in the AT&T in 2011. With 152 career cuts made in 269 starts, he has Veteran Membership on the PGA TOUR, but he went 0-for-2 in 2013, so his slot in the pecking order is extremely low.
Feb 3 - 10:27 AM

Alex Cejka has been added to the published field of this week's Reno-Tahoe Open.

We'll be shocked if he doesn't withdraw. Cejka gained entry as one of three alternates this morning. He missed the cut in his only start at Pebble Beach and is expected to compete in the Tour's Mylan Classic. Cejka ranks 45th on that circuit's money list and on track to qualify for the Tour Finals at worst. The only reason he'd remain committed to the RTO is to chase a victory, something he didn't achieve in his first 268 starts on the PGA TOUR.

Alex Cejka has been removed from the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

In his only PGA TOUR start this year, Cejka missed the cut at Pebble Beach. He'll play this week's Midwest Classic instead. He's posted top 10s in the last two Tour events to rise to 41st on the money list.
