Greg Owen was added to the published field of this week's Humana Challenge.
Owen was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he gained entry via a sponsor exemption. All of the top 10s at the Sony Open in Hawaii were already eligible on merit for the Humana. Owen is 1-for-4 on the season with a T22 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. The 42-year-old has made five trips to the desert and cashed three times, but he's yet to record a top 60. Jan 19 - 2:59 PM

Greg Owen sputtered to a 1-for-4 record this fall, landing in his current position of 171st in the FedExCup leaderboard.

The Englishman regained his PGA TOUR status through the Tour Finals last season. He's been a disappointment early on, but has plenty of appeal in weekly salary-cap leagues due to his 114 career cuts made in 205 attempts. Owen now ranks 39th after the first reshuffle and may struggle to pick up the amount of starts he would prefer.

Greg Owen gathers his gear and heads south of the border for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The Englishman is no stranger to El Camaleón Golf Club, signing for a T16 in 2012 and a T20 in 2009. Both top 20s came after a missed cut in his 2007 course debut. Starting the season ranked 18th on the opening reshuffle, Owen led off with a pair of missed cuts before yielding a T22 at last week's Sanderson Farms Championship. This is the final week to bank some FedExCup points before the next reshuffle. Owen's course history makes him an interesting sleeper in deeper formats.

Greg Owen enters the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season ranked 18th in the opening reshuffle.

Owen had conditional status on TOUR in 2013-14, but wisely chose to focus his time on the Tour. A T4 at the South Georgia Classic and a win at the United Leasing Championship essentially locked up his PGA TOUR card before the end of June. He played just three of the four Tour Finals events, doing enough damage with a solo third at the Hotel Fitness Championship to render him satisfied with a solid reshuffle number. The 42-year-old is a veteran of 201 PGA TOUR starts and owns 10 top-10 finishes.

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

Same story, different week. He bowed out of last week's stop in West Virginia for the Tour stop in Nova Scotia and missed the cut. However, with his win in Kansas the week prior and a T4 in Georgia two months ago, the Brit ranks 15th on the tour's money list. So, he'll play in this week's Utah Championship. Given he's 198th in the FedExCup standings, it would be shocking if he played the PGA TOUR again this summer. NOTE: Wes Short, Jr. (U.S. Senior Open) and Richard S. Johnson (no commitment) also withdrew as alternates.

Greg Owen has been removed as an alternate for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The Englishman started the week as the seventh alternate, but had risen into the No. 1 spot after Monday's field changes. We wouldn't normally alert you of this kind of news, but Owen won on the Tour on Sunday. It was his first victory of any note since the 2004 World Sand Championship. His last title on a sanctioned circuit occurred at the 2003 British Masters on the European Tour. His win at the United Leasing Championship two days ago vaulted him to 13th on Tour money list. With the tour in Nova Scotia this week and travel to and from West Virginia likely impractical, it makes sense that he'd remain committed to the Nova Scotia Open to try to pad his earnings.

Greg Owen lit up Victoria National Golf Club for a 5-under-par 37-30=67 in the final round of the United Leasing Championship for a one-stroke victory over Ryan Armour and Mark Hubbard.

Owen's 9-under 279 earned him a breakthrough Tour win in his 48th start. The veteran of 201 PGA TOUR events began his day with a triple bogey on the opening par 4, seemingly shooting himself out of the tournament. He partially erased that with back-to-back birdies on the sixth and seventh holes. His back nine featured five birdies and an eagle on the first eight holes before closing with a bogey at the 18th. He landed 14 GIR and putted to a 1.50 average. After beginning the week 88th on the Tour money list, he now moves inside the top 25 to the 13th spot. While he isn't a lock to earn a PGA TOUR card for next season just yet, he's well on his way.

Greg Owen returns to the FedEx St. Jude Classic for his fourth look at TPC Southwind.

Limited by conditional status, this will be just the seventh start of the season for the Englishman, with his lone top 25 coming at the Puerto Rico Open. His last three trips to Memphis have resulted in two missed cuts with a T11 sandwiched in-between. Owen is still in search of his first PGA TOUR victory.

Greg Owen has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Owen was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but gained entry due to three withdrawals today. Limited by conditional status, he's still 4-for-4 on the season, but has just one top-55 finish (T24, Puerto Rico), leaving him 203rd in FedExCup points. This will mark his sixth appearance at TPC Louisiana. He survived four cuts, two of which went for a top 20 but none since 2010 (T16).

Greg Owen stapled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

He split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico today. Three of his par breakers dropped in on the par 5s. He arrived at the midpoint in 8-under 136, two back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. It's a critical week for the Englishman to shine since he's stuck on conditional status this season. Given that and his age (42), he shouldn't populate fantasy rosters, but he'd make for a great story is he would manage to break through. He's winless in 195 previous PGA TOUR starts. When veteran gamers think of him, all that comes to mind is that three-putt from nearly inside the leather to cost him the title at Bay Hill in 2006.

Greg Owen has been added to the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Owen was the sixth alternate when the field was released on Friday. He gained entry tonight when Patrick Reed withdrew. Now strapped with conditional status, the Englishman will be making his first start on the PGA TOUR this season. He's 3-for-7 at Torrey Pines but has yet to secure a top 50.

Greg Owen will compete on the 2013-14 PGA TOUR with only conditional status.

Owen finished 2013 ranked 134th in the FedExCup standings, missing out on a spot in the Playoffs and full status for 2013-14. He dropped down to the Tour Finals, but failed to walk away with one of the 50 PGA TOUR cards. This is familiar territory, as he has bounced back and forth between both circuits on several occasions. The Englishman has made 193 PGA TOUR starts and 44 on the Tour. Given the challenge of finding starts, he's a weak fantasy option in all foreseeable formats.

Greg Owen took a one-stroke lead at the mid-point of the Chiquita Classic with his 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round.

Owen turned in quite the colorful scorecard, throwing up seven birdies and an eagle and dropping shots with bogeys on three holes. He's done most of his damage tee-to-green, ranking inside the top 10 in driving distance and GIR. After spending all of 2013 on the PGA TOUR and finishing 134th in the FedExCup standings. He then missed the cut in the Hotel Fitness Championship to kick of the Tour playoffs. His 8-under 136 is good for a one-stroke advantage.

Greg Owen signed for a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and trails Brandt Snedeker by three at 11-under 205.

The Englishman circled eight birdies and gave back three bogeys on an adventurous day at Glen Abbey. He came to the par-5 18th two off the lead, but deposited his approach into the water after a perfect drive. Rather than creep closer to, or even join, the lead, he suffered a bogey. He began the week 139th in the FedExCup points standings, so a strong finish tomorrow could change his season and lock up his 2013-14 card.

Greg Owen reached the midpoint of the RBC Canadian Open in 6-under-par 70-68=138, seven strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's yet to log a top 20 this season and Owen started the week ranked 139th in the FedExCup standings, so he needs to pour it on to qualify for the Playoffs. Thus far at Glen Abbey, he's hit 26 greens in regulation and circled an eagle and nine birdies. Today's set of par breakers included that eagle (From 31'1" at the par-5 16th hole) and five birdies, three of which measured between 13 and 15 feet.
