Past champion Mark Wilson makes his way back to Playa del Carmen, Mexico, for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.
Wilson hoisted the hardware after the 2009 edition of this event, back when it was played in late February. He traded 20 birdies with seven bogeys en route to victory that week. That went in the books as his second career victory and he'd later add three more trophies to his case. While Wilson never shies away from a ball-striking contest, his best days are behind him. He's missed the cut in 9 of his last 10 starts and hasn't found a top 10 since the 2015 Travelers Championship. This week's short course is the type of layout that will allow Wilson to throw his name into the mix for a round or two, but gamers should keep their expectations to a reasonable level.

Sponsor invite and World No. 720 Mark Wilson is in Cromwell, CT., for the Travelers Championship and arrives 203rd in the FedExCup standings.

The 42-year-old is 2-for-7 at TPC River Highlands, cashing a T63 in 2013 and T7 in 2015 (66-68-67-68), which is his most recent top 10 on TOUR (41 starts ago). In 18 career laps around the par-70 layout, his scoring average is 70.89 and missed the cut last year (by five) following rounds of 70-74. Playing this season on Past Champion status, the North Carolina alum is 3-for-10 with a best of T26 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms back in October. He's not played enough rounds this season to be officially ranked, but if he had, he'd rank 157th in birdie average (3.28) and 138th in scoring average (71.555). The Wisconsin native checks in off four consecutive missed cuts, seven in his last eight.

Past champion Mark Wilson coasted to a 5-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, throwing his name into contention very early in the week.

Wilson started his day with a tweet that read, "Thanks for the exemption to play @MayakobaGolf. Love this beautiful place." Fast-forward five hours, and he's walking off with the very early clubhouse lead. The 42-year-old split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens today, going 5-for-6 in scrambling opportunities. Wilson opened with the same score of 66 during round one of the 2009 edition (played as a par 70 that year) before he went on to win that week. The five-time PGA TOUR winner last crossed the line at the 2012 CareerBuilder Challenge.

Mark Wilson tacked on a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of the Valero Texas Open to post 6-under 138, up five on the live leaderboard to T5.

Entering the week, Wilson hadn't broken par in six career rounds at the current venue, including a missed cut last year (by six) on 12-over 80-76=156. This season, he's posted just one red number over his last 19 rounds on TOUR, and was a cumulative 34-over-par on those rounds. That's why golf is funny, as the 41-year-old has thrown up matching 69s over his first two laps -- with four birdies against one bogey in each -- to sit four back of 36-hole leader Brendan Steele.

Mark Wilson styled a 3-under-par 35-34=69 during the opening round of this week's Valero Texas Open.

Wilson striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation. Both ranked inside the top 30 in the field as he walked off the course. It's easy to avoid the big numbers with that kind of ball-striking. It wasn't all tee-to-green, though, as he also added a 53'9" birdie bomb on the par-4 ninth hole. Since the Valero moved to the AT&T Oaks Course, Wilson is 0-for-3 but he's well on his way to a paycheck this week.

Mark Wilson hoisted the 2011 Waste Management Phoenix Open hardware and returns this week for another crack at TPC Scottsdale's Stadium Course.

The five-time PGA TOUR winner has been known to tear through a course from time-to-time on his way to victory, but that hasn't occurred since the 2012 Humana Challenge. Averaging less than 280 yards off the tee for each of the past four seasons, his methods are based on the fairways and greens principles. Wilson arrives with a 3-for-6 record in the current season, with just one finish inside the top 50. Gamers should look elsewhere but also be aware of his history here in Scottsdale.

After opening 2015-16 with consecutive missed cuts, Mark Wilson posted a T58 at the OHL Classic and a T25 at The RSM Classic on rounds of 72-67-66-69.

The 41-year-old rebounded last season (95th in FedExCup) from a career-worst in 2013-14 where he made only nine cuts on 29 starts with no top 10s and a 183rd-place finish in the FEC standings. His best golf looks to be behind him with his last podium 69 starts ago at the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational (T3). The Tar Heel is a five-time PGA TOUR winner in 342 events but it's approaching four years since his last title at the 2012 Humana Challenge.

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.

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.
