Alex Cejka managed a 2-under-par 34-36=70 at PGA West's Palmer Private during his third round of the Humana Challenge.
Cejka went off the 10th tee today and started with a bang, holing out from 48 yards for eagle on the par-5 11th hole. He immediately gave those shots back with bogeys on the par-3 12th and par-4 13th. Cejka hasn't finished inside the top 10 on the PGA TOUR since the 2010 Turning Stone Resort Championship but he's in great position to do so at 14-under 202. Jan 24 - 7:12 PM

Alex Cejka spun an 8-under-par 35-29=64 at PGA West's Nicklaus Private in today's second round of the Humana Challenge.

He missed only one of 14 fairways and one green in regulation, but settled for pars on each of his first seven holes. Cejka finally found his pocket with a birdie-4 at No. 8. He'd go on to eagle the par-4 10th and connect birdies at Nos. 12-17. Alas, a bogey-5 at the last thwarted a spotless card. Nevertheless, this is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he opened the 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a 64 on Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course. As he thinks ahead to Palmer Private at PGA West for tomorrow's third round, the 44-year-old is 12-under 132 and just three strokes adrift of the 36-hole lead.

Alex Cejka ranks 79th in the FedExCup standings after securing a pair of top-20 finishes in his first five starts of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season.

The veteran and Tour graduate has been a bit all or nothing thus far. His T18 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and T16 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba were surrounded by three missed cuts. The good news is, he did enough heavy lifting when he did make the cut to place himself in decent shape following the first reshuffle, and should land in numerous fields on the West Coast Swing.

Alex Cejka carded a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba and is tied for the clubhouse lead at 12-under 201.

While Cejka will trail at least Jason Bohn at day's end, he is locked into a spot inside the top three with 18 holes to play. His third lap around El Camaleón GC featured five birdies, but an ugly double bogey at the par-3 10th after swallowing a penalty stroke from his tee shot. His 18 birdies through 54 holes are the best of the week. Never a winner on the PGA TOUR, he could have a life-changing day on Sunday with a hot round and a little help.

Alex Cejka followed his opening 66 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 4-under-par 34-33=67 to post 9-under 133 at the halfway point.

He's three swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Today's lap around El Camaleón featured 12 greens in regulation and just one bogey, that a 4 at the 10th hole where he began his round. Thereafter, Cejka buried five birdies against no bogeys or worse. Like so many lurking entering the weekend, the 43-year-old is still chasing his first PGA TOUR title.

Alex Cejka posted a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Cejka arrived in México having cashed in just one of four starts this season, but that was a T18 in Vegas. Today he striped 10 (of 14) fairways but found only 11 greens in regulation, yet manufactured eight birdies to tie the field high at the time he signed his card. That set included 4s on all three par 5s. With a trio of bogey-5s on his card, he settled one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
