Scott Verplank makes his 12th start of the PGA TOUR season at this week's stop, the Barracuda Championship at Montrêux Golf and Country Club in Reno, Nevada.
The 2000 Barracuda champ has made two other appearances in the tournament, a T50 in his 1999 debut and a missed cut in 2013. At 51 years of age, Verplank has completed 72 holes just twice on his TOUR season of 11 starts: T48 at the RBC Canadian Open and T69 at the Humana Challenge. He's played six events on the Champions Tour cashing all six times, good for 38th in the Charles Schwab Cup standings. His season best is a T4 at the Senior PGA Championship back in May.

Scott Verplank makes his 11th career John Deere Classic appearance this week and tees it up via his top 50 on the PGA TOUR career money list exemption.

Verplank is 7-for-10 at the Deere, with five top 10s, the last coming in the 2009 weather-plagued edition, finishing T9. He's played the event only sporadically since, WD/2011, MC/2013, and didn't play the tournament at all between 2001 and 2008. The TOUR veteran, who is making his 641st career start this week, has cashed one time (T69, Humana Challenge) in nine starts on the season. Verplank, 29th on the career money list, hasn't recorded a top 10 since 2011. The 50-year-old, who turns 51 on July 9th, has made five starts on the Champions Tour this year, highlighted by a T4-finish at the Senior PGA Championship in May.

Scott Verplank hoisted the hardware at the 2007 AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and returns for another look at TPC Four Seasons.

Verplank was the final winner here before TPC Four Seasons became the exclusive course in 2008. He finds his way into the field with a career earnings exemption. Verplank has missed the cut in three of his five starts here since his victory and gamers shouldn't be surprised if that becomes 4-of-6 after this weekend. After all, he's just 1-for-8 on the season entering the week.

Scott Verplank was disqualified from the Shell Houston Open following his second round for signing an incorrect scorecard.

Details of the miscue weren't made available. Verplank went out in the first threesome off the first tee this morning, so this took a while to determine, at least publicly. He's down for an 8-over-par 39-41=80. With a 2-over 74 in the opening round, his bags were packed anyway. This is his second DQ in 626 PGA TOUR starts as a professional. He's now 1-for-7 on the season as he burns through a career earnings exemption.

Scott Verplank has elected not to compete in this week's Valero Texas Open.

He pulled out of his last commitment at The Honda Classic as well and will once again remain 1-for-6 on the season. The 50-year-old tied for 74th at the Champions Tour's Tucson Conquistadores Classic on Sunday. He's yet to finish inside the top 50 in five starts on the senior circuit since becoming eligible last summer. Verplank is not scheduled to compete in the Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic that begins this Friday.

Scott Verplank has withdrawn from this week's Honda Classic.

Scott Verplank arrives at TPC Scottsdale for his 22nd start at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Verplank has the experience, including seven top 25s at this event. More recently, he's finished outside the top 50 in each of his last five visits here. Verplank enters the week ranked 213th in the FedExCup with three missed cuts in four starts this season. Gamers can safely leave him off their rosters this week.

Scott Verplank began his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season by missing each of his three cuts.

Verplank is burning his final career earnings exemption, earned by ranking inside the top 50 on the career money list. His struggles this season have been relatively predictable. He made just one of 12 cuts in 2013-14 and hasn't so much as sniffed a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since his T4 at the 2011 PGA Championship. It's hard to imagine a format where he is a worthy investment.

Scott Verplank missed the cut in The McGladrey Classic in 2013 and returns to the Seaside Course for the second time.

Verplank can thank his status in 2014-15 to the second of his two career earnings exemptions. In 12 events last season, he made just one cut. Unfortunately for the veteran, his trip to Sea Island wasn't one of them. He offers no real fantasy value this week.

Scott Verplank will be fully exempt on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR via a career earnings exemption.

This is the second consecutive season in which he's utilized this conduit to membership. Now 26th all-time, he could holster it for a few years if he wanted, but the five-time PGA TOUR winner seems ready to move on. Over his last three seasons, he's 7-for-35 with no better than a T40 at the 2013 RBC Canadian Open.

Scott Verplank returns to The Greenbrier Classic for the third time.

Verplank tied for 14th at The Old White TPC in 2011, then returned in 2013 to miss the cut. This season has been a disaster on the course for the veteran, making just one of 11 cuts, which was a T72 at the Sony Open. Not to worry. The Champions Tour is just around the corner, as he turns 50 on September 9th. He is playing this year on a career earnings exemption.

Scott Verplank has been removed from the published field of this week's HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Verplank is the all-time earnings leader of this week's stop in Texas. His only cut made in 10 starts this season was a T72/MDF at the Sony Open in Hawaii. While he's burning a career earnings exemption this season, his eyes are likely on Sept. 9 as that's when he'll turn 50 years of age.

Scott Verplank has been removed from the published field of this week's Shell Houston Open.

He had been dealing with a back injury prior to missing the cut at the Valero Texas Open by eight strokes. He's just 1-for-8 on the season with a T72/MDF at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

Scott Verplank settled for a 4-over-par 37-39=76 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Verplank has not played since the Northern Trust Open where he withdrew after just eight hole due to a back injury. Today he hit just eight greens and squared five bogeys and one double to erase three birdies. He doesn't have any fantasy value as he approaches his 50th birthday on Sept. 9.

Scott Verplank is listed in the published field of next week's Valero Texas Open.

We'll see. Since withdrawing during his opening round of the Northern Trust Open on Feb. 13, Verplank has committed to, and then withdrawn early from, two stops in Florida. He has our attention since he's fully exempt due to burning a career earnings exemption, but his 50th birthday on Sept. 9 can't arrive soon enough it seems. He hasn't posted a top 35 on the PGA TOUR since the 2011 PGA Championship.
