Mark Wilson got the scoring going at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 4-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round.
Here we go again. Another week, another shootout on the PGA TOUR. Wilson is no stranger to success at El Camaleón. He won here in 2009. Today, going out in the first threesome off the first tee, he birdied the par-4 first, the first of five circles on the day. He'd spoil his card with a walk-off bogey at the par-4 18th, but signed it as the first clubhouse leader inside the top 10. Overall, Wilson split eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation on the venue that has already rewarded tee-to-green precision. Nov 12 - 11:17 AM

Mark Wilson ends a seven-week break with this week's playing of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Wilson has a pair of top-25 finishes at the Shriners since the tournament went TPC Summerlin-exclusive (T24/2008; T22/2010). He's missed the cut in each of the last two playings, including by five in last year's edition on rounds of 69-75. The soon-to-be 41-year-old (Oct. 31), finished 95th last season in the FedExCup standings, recording but three top 10s on 28 starts. His season best was T7 at the Travelers Championship at the end of June. Wilson finished T24 at The Barclays to extend his seventh postseason but was ejected after a T69 at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

After a two-year hiatus from the tournament, Mark Wilson tees it up again at the Deutsche Bank Championship in Norton, Massachusetts.

Wilson did what he had to do last week at The Barclays finishing T24 to bump from No. 114 in the FedExCup standings to 85th entering the Deutsche Bank. With only the top 70 advancing, he once again is on the outside looking in. The good news is Wilson is 5-for-5 at the DBC --in the FEC Playoffs era-- and has posted sub-par rounds in 12 of 20 career loops. He's not been able to put four of those rounds together however, with his best finish a T27 in 2009. His scoring average in the final round at TPC Boston (par 71) is 71.60.

Mark Wilson turns his attention to Plainfield Country Club for this week's Barclays.

Wilson arrives in Edison, New Jersey, ranked 114th in the FedExCup standings. The UNC product finished the 2014-15 regular season with 11 missed cuts in 26 starts. He added six top 25s along the way, five more than last year's disappointing total of just one. Wilson will be grateful that he played his way back into the Playofffs, but his chances of moving onto TPC Boston are not high.

Mark Wilson ticked off 12 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship to reach the three-quarter pole at 22 points, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Wilson began the day with 10 points (T61) and 16 points in arrears of overnight co-leaders Brendan Steele and Andres Gonzales. After opening with one point on Thursday and nine points on Friday, the 40-year-old added another 12 today registering six birdies in his blemish-free loop of Montrêaux G&CC. His set featured three consecutive circles on Nos. 2-4 and three more after the break on 11 (from 27'8"), 13 and 16 (from 21'1") to move up 51 spots on the live leaderboard. With three weeks and four events remaining before the start of the FedExCup Playoffs, Wilson entered the week slotted 107th in the FEC standings.

Mark Wilson readies for his 11th playing of the RBC Canadian Open and slots in at 123rd in the FedExCup standings.

Wilson is 6-for-10 at the Canadian Open with one top 10 (T6/2013). Inclusive of 2013, he's also posted top-25 finishes in 2008/09, all three coming at this week's venue Glen Abbey GC. Wilson has missed 10 cuts on 22 starts in 2014-15 posting three top 10s, including a season-best T7 at the Travelers Championship four starts ago. He chased the Travelers with missed cuts at The Greenbrier Classic and John Deere Classic. The 40-year-old tied 48th at last week's inaugural Barbasol Championship (par 71) on rounds of 69-70-68-72.

Mark Wilson wrapped up his sixth Travelers Championship with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 and his 72-hole aggregate of 11-under 269 was good for three-way tie for seventh place.

Wilson's top 10 was a huge surprise this week. First, he's only cashed one paycheck in five previous appearances at TPC River Highlands (T63, 2013). Second, he hasn't had a top 10 since back-to-backs (T9, Sanderson Farms Championship; T8, McGladrey Classic) back in late October and early November. His best finish in calendar-year 2015 (13 starts) was T24 at the Valspar Championship. Wilson began the day at 9-under (T8) and five off the pace. On his round, he outpaced two bogeys with four birdies, with one of those bogeys coming at the last, dropping him out of a share of sixth place. His four circles came at Nos. 2, 9, 15 and 17, with each conversion coming from inside eight feet. His longest holed putt of the day was from 10'2" for par at the fourth. The 40-year-old's final-round stats show 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation finishing the tournament at 1.623 putts per GIR, second in that category for the week.

Mark Wilson got around TPC River Highlands in 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's opening round of the Travelers Championship.

After occupying a spot inside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings for the majority of the season, Wilson has gone silent and has slipped to 132nd, but he collected a field-tying-high seven birdies today and sits just two strokes off the clubhouse lead. After finding four birdies on his opening nine, including rolls from 20'7" and 11'4" at Nos. 12 and 14, respectively, he waited until the par-3 fifth for his longest. It measured 60'9" and contributed to his strokes gained: putting clip of 2.824 at last check, good for third-best. If there's a negative, it's that he went just 2-for-4 in scrambling for two bogeys and added a three-jack bogey at the par-4 fourth, albeit from just inside 79 feet.

Mark Wilson turned in a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

He signed his card with a piece of the clubhouse lead, but he probably won't lay his head down tonight inside the top 10. Nevertheless, it was a solid round even if both of his bogeys were as a result of three-putts. Elsewhere, he found five birdies, the longest measuring 13'3" at the par-4 13th hole. He also salvaged after rinsing his tee ball at the par-3 fourth. Wilson holed his chip from outside 42 feet for the 3. This is his fifth trip to TPC Southwind, but today is the first time that he's scored under par in the lid-lifter.
Jun 11 - 1:29 PM

Mark Wilson will have a look at his old yardage books ahead of this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Wilson is 5-for-7 at this event but hasn't finished inside the top 25 at Colonial CC since 2009. He arrives with seven missed cuts to his name this season after 16 starts. Wilson has never relied on distance, so Colonial CC should cater to his game better than most weeks.
May 20 - 8:35 AM

At 7-under-par 69-68=137, Mark Wilson is four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Wilson is grinding. He cashed in half of his first 14 starts this season and sits 107th in the FedExCup standings. If he continues to putt like he has at TPC Louisiana, he'll be able to coast to the Playoffs. He's 7-for-9 in scrambling with two bogeys thus far and has circled nine birdies. Today's set featured conversions from 30'10" and 35'11" at Nos. 6 and 10, respectively. Wilson also poured in a par save from 25'2" at the par-4 fourth. At last check, he ranked 10th in the field in strokes gained: putting with an aggregate clip of 4.549.
Apr 24 - 4:18 PM

Mark Wilson arrived at the halfway point of the Shell Houston Open in 9-under-par 69-66=135 and sits two strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

With two top 10s in the fall and a T24 at the Valspar Championship three weeks ago, Wilson is 117th in the FedExCup standings, so he entered the week as a bit of a sleeper. Tack on that he hasn't played the Golf Club of Houston in competition since missing the cut in its debut as host in 2006 and he's that much more of a surprise entering the weekend. The 40-year-old has split 23 (of 28) fairways and hit 30 greens in regulation thus far this week. Today's loop was blemish-free. His longest of six birdies rolled 17'10" at the par-4 sixth hole.
Apr 3 - 7:20 PM

Mark Wilson tied for 24th at the Valspar Championship in his last start and hopes to continue that momentum in the Valero Texas Open this week.

While he owns a two top-three finishes in this event, they did not come at the current venue of TPC San Antonio. In fact, he's played the new stop just twice and missed the cut on both occasions. He failed to break par in any of his four rounds. It's hard to find a reason to get too excited about Wilson's prospects this week.
Mar 23 - 8:51 PM

Mark Wilson is set to compete in his seventh Northern Trust Open later this week.

Wilson has cashed in four of his six ventures to Riviera Country Club, with a T11 in 2008 representing his only top-50 finish. Familiarity has not proved to be a good thing, as '08 was his first venture to this iconic TOUR stop. He has made each of his last three cuts this season, but has done so without much fanfare. The five-time PGA TOUR winner is 87th in the FedExCup standings.
Feb 16 - 8:19 PM

Mark Wilson carded an 8-under-par 31-33=64 at PGA West's Nicklaus Private in today's opening round of the Humana Challenge, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The 40-year-old is in the final year of a multiple-win exemption on the PGA TOUR, so he's under the gun to crack the top 125 in FedExCup points or earnings. With a pair of top 10s in the fall, Wilson is currently 82nd in points, so his projection is strong. Today, he converted an eagle at the par-5 13th hole and seven birdies to offset a lone bogey-5 at No. 15. This is his lowest aggregate since a final-round 64 at the 2012 WM Phoenix Open, who weeks after he won the Humana. That's the most recent of his five wins. Palmer Private at PGA West awaits Wilson's presence in the second round.
