Mark Wilson hopes to make the 2014-15 season better than the previous one, and it all starts at the Frys.com Open.
Wilson is fully exempt for this season via a multiple-wins exemption, but that runs out at the end of 2014-15. He must perform better than his 183rd in the FedExCup standings and 197th spot on the money list this time around, or he will lose his status. He made just nine of 25 cuts last season, with a T23 at the Wells Fargo Championship serving as his lone top-25 finish. Oct 8 - 8:35 PM

Mark Wilson has 17 points at the break of the Barracuda Championship, nine back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Wilson is fully exempt through next season, so his only stress is a berth in the FedExCup Playoffs. However, at 186th in points, he needs a wing and a prayer and help to get there. Thus far in Reno, he's converted 10 birdies against three bogeys after splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and hitting 13 greens in regulation in each round. Chalk him up as a proponent of Modified Stableford scoring.

Mark Wilson tied for sixth place at Glen Abbey in last year's RBC Canadian Open and heads north of the border again for this week's edition.

Wilson will have to take his talents to Île-Bizard, Quebec, so course history can all but be ignored. However, there is also something to be said about playing well in certain course conditions that are prevalent regionally, and Île-Bizard is just a stone's throw away from Oakville, Ontario. Other than his 6-for-8 record at Canadian's national championship, there aren't a lot of arrows pointing up for Wilson this week.

Mark Wilson has made half of his six cuts in his previous Quicken Loans National starts and returns to break the tie this week.

Four of his first six appearances came while Congressional Country Club served as the host venue, making the cut in three with a T25 in 2009 the highlight. That experiences should serve him well this week. At 185th in the FedExCup standings, the veteran needs to make a move quickly. Since a T23 at Quail Hollow in early May, he's missed five of six cuts with a T72 sprinkled into the mix.

Mark Wilson posted a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in his opening round of the Memorial.

Ranked 180th in the FedExCup standings and having missed 11 of 15 cuts, Wilson's fantasy value is at an all-time low. So, if for whatever reason you're invested this week, you might as well just hold your breath and wait for the conclusion of the tournament to exhale. He split 13 (of 14) fairways at Muirfield Village, which is easy to do, and landed 12 greens in regulation. His only blemish occurred at the par-4 fourth hole where his tee ball came to rest short and left of the green; he'd settle for bogey. Elsewhere, Wilson picked off four birdies, including an eight-yarder from the rough at 14 and a conventional conversion from 33'4" at 16. He signed his card sitting three strokes in arrears of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Mark Wilson has missed the cut in nine of his last 11 starts but is set to give it a go at this week's Memorial Tournament.

We haven't seen this kind of slump from Wilson since 2005 when he missed 8-of-11 cuts before righting the ship. It's still a little early to blame this on the aging curve, but it's certainly a possibility. His track record at Muirfield Village is pretty solid, 5-for-7 with two top 10s to his name. Unfortunately, the stumbling form takes precedence and makes Wilson an easy golfer to avoid this week and the foreseeable future.

Mark Wilson spun a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Wells Fargo Championship to join Rory McIlroy and Pat Perez in the clubhouse lead at 6-under 210.

Wilson was hot with the putter in the third round, converting three of his seven birdies from outside of 20 feet. In fact, his 7'8" birdie on the par-4 ninth was his shortest par breaker of the day. It's no surprise that he subsequently gained over 3.50 strokes with his flat stick. He entered this week having missed his last four cuts, and this track is known to favor bombers. All of that equates to this being a surprising place for him to be hanging around the top of a leaderboard.

Mark Wilson enters the RBC Heritage in the midst of a deep slump.

The five-time PGA TOUR winner is 190th in the FedExCup standings, and has tons of ground to make up if he wants to make a run at the Playoffs later this season. After missing the cut here in his first look at Harbour Town in 2003, he's cashed a check in each of his six return trips. His three top 25s in this event have occurred in succession, beginning in 2011 and running through last season.

Mark Wilson is looking to jump-start his season at the Valero Texas Open.

Wilson's 2014 results have been surprisingly lackluster but he continues to stripe it down the fairway in true Mark Wilson fashion. Even without a top-25 finish to his name, he still ranks 35th in driving accuracy for the year. Wilson has tallied six or more top 25s for seven consecutive seasons. He has a lot of ground to make up if he wants that trend to continue.

Mark Wilson turned in a 3-under-par 32-35=67 for his opening round of The Honda Classic, finishing four strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

This is a welcome wind of change for the five-time PGA TOUR winner. Not only did he enter the week 2-for-7 and 184th in FedExCup points, but today's score is his lowest first round since a 66 opened his last title at the Humana Challenge in January of 2012. Today he split 10 (of 14) fairways but found only 10 greens in regulation. He got up and down six times and squared two bogeys, but rolled in an eagle at the par-5 third hole and three birdies. That set of birdies included conventional conversions from 19'6" and 15'7" at Nos. 8 and 12, but the highlight was a 17-yard hole-out from in front of the green at 10. Wilson's longest putt that disappeared fell for par from 33'11" at the par-4 14th.

Mark Wilson turns his attention to The Honda Classic and is ranked 184th in the FedExCup standings.

Wilson's first PGA TOUR win came in a playoff at PGA National back in 2007, so if there's ever a spot for him to snap out of his slump, this could be it. He needs to get it figured out quickly, as the vast majority of his PGA TOUR success has taken place during the first three months of the calendar year. He ranks 62nd in final round scoring average, so if he can somehow figure out a way to make the cut, perhaps he could find a way to pick up some FEC points on the weekend.

Mark Wilson hoisted the hardware in the 2012 Humana Challenge and is back again this week.

While Wilson is noted for being a stud in the early months of a calendar year before declining as the temperature rises, that hasn't been the case. Other than a T11 in the winners-only, no-cut Hyundai Tournament of Champions in 2013, he hasn't cracked a top 50 on the West Coast swing since 2012. If you own his stock and he doesn't start to heat up soon, it could be time to bail. He tied for 51st at the Sony Open last week.

Mark Wilson failed to win on the PGA TOUR in 2013 for the first time since 2010, but is once again fully exempt in 2013-14.

Most casual observers wouldn't realize that Wilson is a five-time winner, but that's the case. When looking for investment trends, the vast majority of his success takes place in the first three months of the calendar year. That seems a little backwards, since he lives in Illinois by way of Wisconsin and it's still the dead of winter back home, but for whatever reason he is a fast starter. The strength of his game has always been finding fairways, with average to mixed results with the irons and putter.

Mark Wilson begins his 2013-14 campaign in Las Vegas for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Wilson played this event every season from 2003-2010, but has been noticeably absent since. Considering he owned six top 25s in eight starts to just one missed cut at TPC Sawgrass, it's likely that scheduling had something to do with both his disappearance and reappearance. He's coming off his worst season on the money list since 2010.

Mark Wilson is set to begin the FedExCup Playoffs at The Barclays.

Wilson is 102nd in the FEC standings, and must at least make the cut to have any chance of moving inside the top 100 and advancing to the second leg of the Playoffs. He tied for 58th at Liberty National in 2009.
