Trevor Immelman will tee it up for the fifth time in the British Masters this week at the The Grove in Hertfordshire.
A fifth appearance maybe, but the first since 2004 and the consequence of him using his status as a major winner to gain starts on the European Tour, bolstering a career that has hit the wall on the PGA Tour. For what it is worth his last two outings in this tournament reaped T11 and T12, plus his start at The Grove in the 2006 Amex Championship saw him end the week T9. He also lost a play-off for the 2003 BMW PGA Championship at nearby Wentworth. But his form is of much greater relevance and concern: he's just 12-for-50 since mid-2014 with a best finish of T32. And it gets worse: there are only 22 sub-70 rounds of golf in that period. It makes for grim reading. Oct 11 - 5:12 AM

Trevor Immelman makes his ninth visit to the Valspar Championship via a sponsor exemption.

The South African tips-in at No. 1610 in the Official World Golf Ranking as he makes just his second start in the 2015-16 season (DQ, Sanderson Farms). He played two events on home soil and all three Desert Swing events, missing four cuts and cashing a T52 in Qatar. It's been nearly eight years since the last of his two TOUR wins at the 2008 Masters. In 166 starts post-green jacket, the 36-year-old has posted just six top 10s, the most recent being 24 months ago at the 2014 Farmers (T10). One bright spot this week is he has made the cut in seven of eight on the Copperhead Course but has just one top-25 finish, a T19 in 2009.

Trevor Immelman will look to find some of the old magic when he contests the BMW South African Open at Glendower.

The local man won this event back-to-back at Erinvale in 2003/2004 and was also runner-up at Humewood in 2006. He hasn't appeared in his national Open since a T10 at Pearl Valley in 2008, the same year he won The Masters. It's been a tough road for Immelman since then and he's gone 37 consecutive starts on the PGA TOUR without a top-30. His last performance of note was T10 at the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open. At this week's course, Glendower, his one and only appearance came back in 1997 when he finished T52.

Trevor Immelman was disqualified from the Sanderson Farms Championship.

He had one hole to go to complete his second round. It's his first disqualification in 260 PGA TOUR starts as a pro. If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you, but it's possible that he simply didn't officially withdraw. Not that it matters to gamers, however. He was 1-over-par on the round and 1-under through 35 holes, two strokes outside the cut line with a par 4 remaining. Immelman has now gone 37 consecutive starts on TOUR without a top-30 finish. He's cashed just a dozen times during the drought.

Trevor Immelman turns his attention to this week's Barracuda Championship in Reno, Nevada, and enters the week 205th in the FedExCup standings.

Immelman began the year No. 473 in the Official World Golf Ranking and has plummeted to No. 924 entering the tournament. The 35-year-old is a dismal 4-for-17 on the season with no top 25s. His T32 at the Barbasol Championship three weeks ago is his only finish inside the top 40 all season. In the calendar year, he's missed the cut 11 times on 13 starts, including eight straight to start 2015. Immelman has played the Barracuda in each of the past two years, finishing T57/2014 and T39/2013. He made a rare start on the Tour last week, missing the cut at the Utah Championship.

Trevor Immelman gets the nod into this week's Greenbrier Classic via a sponsor exemption.

Immelman began the year No. 473 in the Official World Golf Ranking and has cratered to No. 760. He has but three paydays on the season (totaling $46,228) on 14 starts. They read: T46/ Open; T49/no-cut CIMB Classic and T82/MDF at the AT&T Byron Nelson. Not exactly the stuff to write home about for the former Masters champion. The South African's last top 25 on TOUR was a T10 at the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open, 40 starts ago. He's competed in all five editions of The Greenbrier Classic going 2-for-5 with a personal-best T14 in 2011 and a T57 last year.

At 1-under 71-67=138, Trevor Immelman made the cut on the number at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

This is Immelman's first payday since a T49 at the CIMB Classic last fall. He went nine straight starts without one. However, his work is far from over. Because 87 golfers survived the cut, another cut of low 70 professionals and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes. After a threat of inclement weather clears out this afternoon, the forecast for the remainder of the weekend is favorable.

Trevor Immelman has been added to the published field of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

The South African was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He got the call to compete when Chris Stroud withdrew. Immelman doesn't come without some baggage, however. He's missed the cut in nine consecutive starts on the PGA TOUR dating back to November and ranks 207th in the FedExCup standings.

Trevor Immelman received a sponsor exemption to compete in this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Two sponsor exemptions remained when the field was released on Friday afternoon. Immelman was seventh alternate, so he was a long shot at gaining entry on merit. He could use the absence of that drama, anyway, given that he's gone seven starts without making a cut. His last deposit occurred as a result of a T49 at the no-cut CIMB Classic in the fall. He's currently 203rd in the FedExCup standings. The South African is only 35 years of age.

Trevor Immelman took home a sharp-looking green jacket at the 2008 Masters and returns this week for another crack at Augusta National Golf Club.

Prior to this season it would have been logical to say the South African had lost a step. After missing the cut in seven of his first nine starts in 2014-15, it's safe to say that step is a very large one. There is always the hope that returning to Augusta National could spark a nerve that kick starts him into gear, but that is more of a pipe dream at this point.

Trevor Immelman has been added to the published field of this week's Valspar Championship.

Immelman received the final sponsor exemption into the field of 144. They're all important, but he may find a bit more value in this one since he's 7-for-7 at Copperhead with one top 25 (T19, 2009). It's the potential elixir he needs to douse a drought of four consecutive cuts dating back to the fall. The South African sits 194th in the FedExCup standings. He's playing this season on conditional status.

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.

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.
