Trevor Immelman was given a sponsor exemption to compete in this week's Farmers Insurance Open.
The South African was the 12th alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but with the series of withdrawals, two sponsor exemptions opened. He tied for 10th at Torrey Pines last year, but he has yet to crack a top 25 since. Feb 2 - 12:58 PM

Trevor Immelman secured two of his four cuts to kick off the 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign, but failed to sniff the top 45 in any of them.

The hope has always remained that the 2008 Masters champion would one day return to elite form, but that appears to be a fleeting thought. That is his most recent of two PGA TOUR victories, and he is now relegated to conditional status in 2014-15. His tie for 10th at the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open is not only his last top-10 finish, but also his latest top 25 anywhere in the world. His body of work over the last few years makes him a dangerous investment in most fantasy formats.

Trevor Immelman has been removed from the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

He gained entry on Tuesday as the eighth alternate, but probably shouldn't have. It's an ironic twist, too, given he rose in the ranks to qualify on merit, but played in the first two events on sponsor exemptions.

Trevor Immelman has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

Immelman started the week as the eighth alternate. He gained entry when David Hearn withdrew. Despite being saddled with conditional status, the South African played in the first two tournament of the season on sponsor exemptions. His only payday came courtesy of a T46 at the Open. Seaside has been good to him, so perhaps his third start of 2014-15 is the charm. Immelman took solo fifth here in 2011 and shared 20th place last year.

Trevor Immelman begins his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season at the Open thanks to a sponsor's invitation.

Immelman has been relegated to conditional status on the PGA TOUR. It's helpful that he is a past Masters champion when it comes time to write letters to sponsors requesting spots in tournaments. A big week at Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course would make him even more attractive to other sponsors later in the season.

Trevor Immelman has the dubious distinction of defending his Hotel Fitness Championship title in the Tour Finals this week.

It goes without saying that Immelman would have much rather cracked the top 125 in the FedExCup standings or the PGA TOUR money list in an effort to avoid a return trip to the Finals, but that wasn't the case. He played 28 tournaments on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14 and has conditional status after a 145th ranking in the FEC standings. The South African posted four consecutive rounds in the 60s last year in the first event of the Finals to emerge with the win.

Trevor Immelman returns to the Wyndham Championship for his fifth look at Sedgefield Country Club.

The South African is 3-for-4 at the Wyndham, with top 40s in each of the past two seasons. Just like last year, he enters the week outside the top 140 in the FedExCup standings needing to make a final push, currently 141st. Immelman's career Sedgefield scoring average of 68.50 is enough to make him an interesting sleeper, but his 13-for-27 record on the season explains why that pick carries plenty of risk.

Trevor Immelman fashioned a 5-under-par 34-32=66 for his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The South African opened his tournament with an eagle conversion from 15'6" at the par-5 10th hole. He went out to exchange six birdies with three bogeys and finish three strokes back of the overnight tri-leaders. His longest birdies measured 15'4" and 11'9" at Nos. 6 and 8, respectively. At 138th in FedExCup points, he's in dire need of a big week. The most recent of his trio of top 25s occurred way back at the Farmers Insurance Open (T10) in late January.

Trevor Immelman experienced a rarity en route to a 2-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the Travelers Championship.

After opening birdie-par-par on the back side of TPC River Highlands, Immelman piped his drive 289 yards into the fairway at the par-5 13th hole. He then jarred his second from 246 yards for an albatross. It's the second 2 on a par 5 this season after James Hahn converted in his second round of the Sony Open in Hawaii. Immelman's is the longest measured hole-out on the circuit since Luke List's 255-yard albatross in the final round of the 2013 Farmers Insurance Open. The South African traded two birdies with three bogeys elsewhere today and closed six strokes in arrears of the clubhouse lead.

Trevor Immelman will make his 22nd start of the season at this week's Travelers Championship.

The South African is 9-for-21 entering the week, with three top 25s on his 2014 resume. Immelman debuted at TPC River Highlands in 2006 with a T16 finish, but has since gone on to miss the cut in both of his next appearances. He currently sits outside the top 145 is driving accuracy, strokes gained-putting, and scoring average. Not a recipe for success, statistically.

Trevor Immelman spun a bogey-free, 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

He split 10 (of 14) fairways and went 4-for-4 in scrambling. If there was a negative, it's that he converted just one of his 14 tries for birdie. It was just one of two looks that he had inside 11 feet, but if you can walk off disappointed after a blemish-free round, this would qualify. Nevertheless, at two strokes off the clubhouse lead, Immelman is poised to make a run at his first top 25 since January.

Trevor Immelman is set to tee it up in his seventh Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The South African hasn't exactly been successful at Colonial Country Club over the years, missing five of his six cuts with a T19 in 2012 the only payday. He's squarely on the FedExCup bubble at 124th in the standings, needing several good tournaments throughout the summer if he hopes to avoid a return trip to the Finals and lock up a 2014-15 PGA TOUR card before the Playoffs.

Trevor Immelman makes his 10th start at the Wells Fargo Championship later this week.

The 2008 Masters winner posted a runner-up finish here in 2006, and has made six of his previous nine cuts. Current form is a much bigger question than course history, missing three of his last four cuts with a T74 at the RBC Heritage serving as the highlight. His last top-10 finish came at Torrey Pines earlier this year.

Trevor Immelman completed 36 holes of the Valero Texas Open in 3-under-par 70-71=143 and sits five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Aside from bogeys at the par-4 15th hole in each round, the South African has no blemishes. He's circled five birdies. Today's notable conversions both dropped for pars from 10'2" and 11'9" at Nos. 4 and 16, respectively. He started the week a quiet 95th in FedExCup points.

Trevor Immelman opened the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 3-under-par 33-36=69.

Once among the more exciting young gung on the PGA TOUR, the now-34-year-old South African is still trying to regain our attention after years post-surgery on his left wrist (in October of 2009). Three more rounds like this one will help a great deal. He hit only 11 greens, but walked away with six circles on his card, four of which courtesy of conversions from 13-18 feet. A bogey-4 at 17 and double-bogey 6 at 8 thwarted a lower round, but he's only seven strokes off the seriously low clubhouse lead. Immelman's strokes gained-putting split was just shy of 2.250 at last check.
