Alex Cejka is slated to compete in next week's Shell Houston Open.
We'll slap a question mark beside him for next week. Remember that he was an 11th-hour withdrawal from this week's Valero Texas Open due to a back injury. He hasn't popped in the field in Houston since 2011, but if he's going to play in the Masters, the recent winner in Puerto Rico will need to repeat the success at the Golf Club of Houston.

Alex Cejka pulled out of this week's Valero Texas Open before his opening round, citing a back injury.

The PGA TOUR's media page on Twitter reported the injury, but it stated in the same tweet that Mike Weir withdrew due to a wrist injury 66 minutes after Weir himself tweeted that it's his forearm that forced him out. In any event, this will be Cejka's second straight week off after six in a row on the road. He chased his breakthrough title in Puerto Rico with a T53 at Copperhead. He's not yet exempt into the Masters and would need to win in Houston next week to secure an exemption. The top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking after the conclusion of action this weekend will be exempt. Cejka is currently 165th.

Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

This is quite understandable given he competed the last six weeks and picked off his first PGA TOUR victory. Cejka sits 28th in the FedExCup standings.
Mar 16 - 11:13 AM

Alex Cejka continued his good play with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the opening round of the Valspar Championship.

No rest for the wicked. Sunday's winner in Puerto Rico piped 11 (of 13) fairways and stood over 15 opportunities to break par at Copperhead today. He converted for five birdies, including respective rolls from 16'5", 27'3" and 22'10" at Nos. 5, 7 and 10. With just one bogey on the card, Cejka sits two strokes off Brian Davis' pace.
Mar 12 - 6:24 PM

After Alex Cejka polished off the Puerto Rico Open with a 3-under-par 32-37=69 to post 7-under 281, he rolled in a birdie on the first hole of a five-way playoff to secure his first victory on the PGA TOUR.

Cejka was the third to conclude regulation with a share of the clubhouse lead, but it didn't seem likely that any of the guys on top would have a chance to win. Both of the golfers in the penultimate pairing -- Jon Curran and Emiliano Grillo -- sat at 8-under entering the par-5 18th. Both bogeyed to join the playoff. Cejka striped his tee ball at the par-5 18th in the playoff and eventually poured in a mid-range putt for a 4. He had to wait for Sam Saunders' try from nearer the hole, but considering that Cejka had waited 287 PGA TOUR starts for his first title, another couple of minutes didn't matter. He sprinted out of the gates at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. The 44-year-old birdied Nos. 1, 2, 5 and 6, but failed to find another par breaker. Instead, he sandwiched a bogey at the par-3 11th hole with 11 pars the rest of the way. He's now exempt into THE PLAYERS and PGA Championship, as well as fully exempt on the PGA TOUR through 2016-17.
Mar 8 - 4:34 PM

Overnight leader Alex Cejka blew up for a 3-over-par 35-40=75 in today's third round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Sigh. Cejka was sailing along bogey-free with one birdie through 14 holes before his engine failed. He closed bogey-par-bogey-double bogey to post 4-under 212, two strokes adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Scott Brown and Chris Smith. Cejka played 40 consecutive holes in bogey-free 8-under before the meltdown. As he knows as a non-winner in 286 previous starts on the PGA TOUR, the hardware isn't easy to secure, so he'll be attempting to achieve something for the first time as a 44-year-old touring professional.
Mar 7 - 3:59 PM

Alex Cejka crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 7-under 137 and assume outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This was as good as it gets in tricky scoring conditions at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Cejka split 10 (of 14) fairways and created 17 scoring opportunities. He buried five birdies, three of which on par 5s. He also walked off with birdie at the par-4 ninth. He's missed only seven GIR thus far and has just one bogey. Cejka is making his 287th career start on the PGA TOUR, but he's never won one.
Mar 6 - 3:40 PM

Alex Cejka turned in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 for his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

Cejka got an early start on his mental approach this week after missing the cut at The Honda Classic. He sandwiched a lone bogey at the par-4 10th hole today with three birdies to post up one stroke off the clubhouse lead. The 44-year-old has been hovering in no-man's land for years. While he qualified for Veteran Membership on the PGA TOUR in 2012, he hasn't registered a top 10 on the circuit since the now-defunct Turning Stone Resort Championship in August of 2010.
Mar 5 - 11:27 AM

Alex Cejka burned Riviera Country Club for seven birdies en route to a 3-under-par 37-31=68 in today's opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

He also squared four bogeys, but shared the clubhouse lead when he walked off. Overall, he piped eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. His longest birdies disappeared from 25 feet and 12'7" at Nos. 3 and 8, respectively. At the time he signed his card, Cejka led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a split just north of 4.855. Cejka wasn't in the field when he woke up this morning, so this goes to show that you need to be prepared for any opportunity just in case it presents itself.
Feb 19 - 2:51 PM

Alex Cejka has regain entry into the Northern Trust Open.

Cejka was bumped to second alternate after the top 10s at Pebble Beach were added on Monday. He reclaimed his spot in the field of 144 when Stuart Appleby withdrew this morning. Cejka began his round at 7:11 a.m. PT on the 10th hole at Riviera Country Club. He's 4-for-9 on the season with a trio of top 20s and sits 81st in the FedExCup standings.
Feb 19 - 10:28 AM

Alex Cejka has been moved outside the window of entry to second alternate at the Northern Trust Open.

Cejka is the victim of three top 10s at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. He connected four red numbers in the tournament, but settled for a share of 34th place. The NTO isn't just the last event on the West Coast Swing, it's also the last opportunity for those in the Tour graduate reshuffle to pad their FedExCup point totals before the next reshuffle occurs at the conclusion of the tournament.
Feb 16 - 10:59 AM

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.
Jan 23 - 7:02 PM

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.
