Alex Cejka (neck) withdrew prior to the start of the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.
This is Cejka's 18th mid-tournament WD in 314 career starts, the last was at the 2015 PGA Championship after a first-round 4-over 76. He was high-up on the 36-hole leaderboard at TPC Scottsdale sitting T13 after 70-68, and it was also the first time he's made the cut here in his last six tries, so the departure has to be at least somewhat concerning. We'll find out in short order, as the 45-year-old is in the published field at next week's AT&T Pebble Beach. Feb 6 - 11:47 AM

Alex Cejka finished up his Hyundai Tournament of Champions debut with a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-35=68 to post 11-under 281, currently T21 on the leaderboard.

The 45-year-old was second oldest in the field this week (Davis Love III/51) and while he never contended, he ended on a high note with today's blemish-free five-birdie stroll. He landed 12 (of 15) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation for a second consecutive day. Cejka's split featured three rolls from outside of nine feet and ended with a walk-off 4 from 16'8" at the par-5 finishing hole. He's one of 21 in this week's field that are scheduled to compete at the TOUR's next stop, the Sony Open in Hawaii, where he'll be making his sixth appearance.

Alex Cejka checks into the Kapalua Resort for his first playing of the Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

At 45 years of age, Cejka is not the oldest player in the 32-man field on Maui, that mantle belongs to 51-year-old Davis Love III, but he's runner-up in that category. He stamped his ticket to the no-cut event with his maiden title (287th career TOUR start) at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open back in early-March. Prior experience on the Plantation Course has been historically required, but Cejka is cooking thus far in 2015-16 with three top 20s in four starts, including a T2 at the Shriners and T6 in his latest start at The RSM Classic. He's par-or-better in all 14 rounds (one MC) and ranks sixth on TOUR in scoring average at 69.552.
Jan 3 - 7:30 PM

Alex Cejka patched together an even-par 37-33=70 in today's final round of The RSM Classic to post 11-under 271, good for a three-way tie for sixth place.

As was noted after yesterday's round, Cejka's record in three previous RSM appearances was dismal, so this week's showing scores one for the current form debate over course form. The T6-finish, although down two spots on the day, is his third top 20 on the season in four starts, and backs-up a T2 at the Shriners, where he played the weekend in 66-66. The 44-year-old was birdie-less 2-over thru his 14 holes in the finale before connecting back-to-backs on Nos. 15 and 16 from 11'2" and 6'4", respectively. Interestingly enough, he matched the field of 74 on Sunday exactly, with a 0.000 mark in strokes gained: putting.

Alex Cejka rebounded to post a third-round 3-under par 35-32=67 at The RSM Classic and sit solo fourth on 11-under 201, five strokes off the pace of 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner.

Whatever the opposite of course horse is, that would be the term for Cejka at Sea Island Resort. In three prior RSM appearances, he hadn't completed 72 holes, missing two cuts and finishing T86/MDF in 2012. However, three starts ago at the Shriners he finished T2, playing the weekend in 66-66. It may have been good enough for a six-way playoff were it not for Smylie Kaufman's 10-under 61 to steal the show by one. Of course, Cejka's only TOUR victory came in a five-man playoff at the 2015 Puerto Rico Open, so one can only speculate. The 44-year-old's 67 on Saturday was his third straight on that number. He played his final nine in bogey-free 3-under, circling birdies at 13, 15 and 16. Of note, Cejka has now played his inward nines bogey-free in each of his rounds this week. Thru 54 holes, he's fifth in driving accuracy and T6 in greens, with both stats registering over 80 percent.

Alex Cejka enjoyed his opening 67 at The RSM Classic so much that he turned in another at Sea Island Resort’s Plantation Course in today’s second round.

Of course, the difference is that Plantation is a par 72 while Seaside is a par 70, so he’s 8-under 134 at the break. That’s just three swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Cejka shot respective nines of 35 and 32 today with six birdies against just one bogey. He landed 16 greens in regulation.

Alex Cejka connected on eight birdies en route to a 6-under-par 30-36=66 in today's third round of the CIMB Classic.

He opened the tournament with the same score before fading on Friday with a 71. Now positioned at 13-under 203, he's one stroke adrift of the 54-hole clubhouse lead, but probably lost the opportunity to win in the second round. Nevertheless, the chiseled international kept his head down today and made the most of 13 scoring chances. He also squared a pair of bogey-5s on his inward nine.

Alex Cejka twirled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 for his opening round of the CIMB Classic, finishing with a slice of the early clubhouse lead.

No jet lag for the 44-year-old following a brilliant co-runner-up in Vegas. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and scattered six birdies in Kuala Lumpur today. Three of his par breakers dropped on the set of four par 5s. Today's effort marked his debut in the tournament.

Alex Cejka sleepwalked for most of his final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open but a late rally saw him close in 5-under-par 35-31=66, good for a six-way tie for second, one stroke back of champion Smylie Kaufman.

Cejka began the finale at 10-under (T6) and three back of 54-hole leader Brett Stegmaier. He was even thru his first 12 holes, exchanging bogeys at the par-4 third and 12th, respectively, with birdies at Nos. 5 and 10. The 44-year-old dropped a six-footer for birdie at the par-5 13th which began a run of four straight, with each conversion coming from inside of 10 feet. He ended with a 37'5" bomb on the 72nd hole for the walk-off birdie-3 for his best finish on TOUR and first top 10 since P1 at the Puerto Rico Open back in early March. This is Cejka's third runner-up in 306 career starts and his first top-10 finish at the Shriners in his 10th appearance.

Alex Cejka fired a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to post 10-under 203, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

After opening in 67-70, Cejka began Moving Day at 5-under (T27) and five adrift. On his round, he split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 5.919 in strokes gained: tee-to-green at the time he signed his card. Thru 54 holes, he's currently a cumulative 10.175 in SGTTG, first in the field. Cejka was 2-over thru his first six, missing two nine-footers for birdies at Nos. 1 and 2, followed by back-to-back bogeys at three and four, the latter a three-putt from 36'1". He closed his first nine with three straight circles, including a chip-in to start the run at the seventh followed by two birdies from inside six feet. The 44-year-old exchanged birdie at 11 with bogey at 14 before a birdie-ace-birdie finish. The ace came on the 212-yard par-3 17th (see link below) and he chased with a walk-off birdie at the par-4 last from 11'4". Cejka was T9 after 54 holes here last year, but concluded in even-par 71 and a T18-finish.

Alex Cejka ends a seven-week break by teeing it up this week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

After a T24 in 2009 and consecutive missed cuts in 2010/11, Cejka took a break from the Shriners and returned last season to post a T18-finish. He was T9 thru 54 holes, opening in 69-68-65, but fell off the pace with an even-par 71 in the final round. The 44-year-old ultimately finished a career-best 71st in the FedExCup standings, qualifying for the postseason for the first time since finishing 103rd in FEC points in 2010. Cejka won his first PGA TOUR title in 2015 in his 287th career start, taking the Puerto Rico Open in a five-man playoff. It would up being his only top-10 finish in 30 starts. He went for T39 in his last action seven weeks ago at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Alex Cejka sets his eyes on TPC Boston ahead of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

Cejka posted 77-73 in his 2006 TPC Boston debut and hasn't earned his way back since. On the season he is 17-for-29, but hasn't played a weekend in his last four starts. Given the Friday start this week, he will be guaranteed a weekend round, but should not be relied upon to play more than two rounds. At 73rd in the FedExCup standings, its do-or-die this week, but his last top 20 was a T11 at the Shell Houston Open back in April.

Alex Cejka shot a 2-over-par 37-35=72 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

He called it quits at Whistling Straits a week ago tomorrow with an ankle injury. If he was feeling better today, it's not reflective on his scorecard. Cejka mounted 15 greens in regulation but converted only once, and that was at the easy par-5 15th hole. He went 2-for-3 in scrambling with one bogey, but added a pair of three-putt bogeys to help spoil the day. The 44-year-old is 63rd in the FedExCup standings, but there's nothing onto which to hang our hats and hope that he'll be making a splash in the Playoffs.
Thu, Aug 20, 2015 06:48:00 PM

Alex Cejka withdrew from the 97th PGA Championship prior to his second round, citing an ankle injury.

He was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 6:45 a.m. CT, but instead will log his 17th mid-tournament WD in 302 PGA TOUR starts. He opened with a 4-over-par 39-37=76 at Whistling Straits, so he'd have needed to go low to survive the cut. The breakthrough winner in Puerto Rico is 63rd in the FedExCup standings, but there's reasonable concern now whether he'll be able to give it a go when the Playoffs roll around in two weeks. UPDATE: Cejka has committed to next week's Wyndham Championship.
Fri, Aug 14, 2015 10:36:00 AM

Alex Cejka has been removed from the published field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Cejka tied for 41st at Glen Abbey for his 11th payday in 13 starts since breaking through in Puerto Rico, but that victory remains his only top 10 on the season. He's 60th in the FedExCup standings and is just two weeks from returning to the PGA Championship for the first time in 10 years.
