Carl Pettersson played eight holes at 5-over before withdrawing from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans due to a wrist injury.
The Swede found one (of seven) fairways one his way toward a pair of bogeys, two double bogeys, and a lone birdie. As you might guess, the birdie came on the one hole where he striped a fairway. He found water off the tee on his lone par 3 played, leading to a double bogey. This goes in the books as his third mid-tournament WD of the season. Pettersson is now 4-for-14 on the season and continues to struggle following the anchored-putter ban. Apr 28 - 10:42 AM

Past champ Carl Pettersson ballooned to a 13-over-par 37-47=84 in the third round of the RBC Heritage and at 11-over 224, will not have a Sunday tee time.

A total of 82 players made the 36-hole cut of 2-over 144, 20 on the number, so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. Pettersson, the 2012 RBC champ, sat T21 after two laps on 2-under 140 (71-69), and kicked off R3 with an eagle from the fringe 12 feet, eight inches away at the par-5 second. He chased with four consecutive bogeys on Nos. 3-6 and added a birdie-3 at nine to turn 1-over. The 38-year-old came home in birdie-less 12-over 47, squaring three bogeys, three doubles, and a triple bogey-7. His 84 dropped him 60 places to 81st place, and coupled with Daniel Summerhay's 80 (posted later), allowed seven players at 7-over 220 to play on Sunday. Joining Pettersson on the pine for the finale are: 221- RBC's Nick Taylor; Michael Kim; Greg Owen; Andres Gonzales ... 223- Chris Stroud ... 227- Hiroshi Iwata.

Past champ Carl Pettersson returns to Harbour Town Golf Links for his 14th consecutive RBC Heritage.

The North Carolina resident is a five-time winner on the PGA TOUR but is fast approaching a four-year winless drought. His last 'W' came here in 2012 in his 10th appearance. The 38-year-old has two other top 10s at the RBC, but those have some age on them as well (T8/2007; T3/2004). His scoring average on the par 71 in 44 career rounds is 70.61. The Swede is suffering through a horrific start to the 2015-16 season with just three cashes on 11 starts and $44k in earnings. In his last eight events, he's missed five cuts and WD'd twice, finishing 72 holes only once for T59 at the Northern Trust.

Carl Pettersson has withdrawn from this week's Honda Classic, his second mid-tournament WD in the month of February. UPDATE: Pettersson returned to action on March 10th with a first-round 4-over 75 at the Valspar Championship.

The Swede opened on the back nine and carded three doubles bogeys, an old-fashioned single bogey, and one birdie before the infamous quad bogey reared its head on the par-5 18th hole. That rocketed his score up to 10-over 45 as he would have made the turn. Instead, he walked straight into the clubhouse, there was no reason cited at the time. He backed out of the WM Phoenix Open earlier this month, citing a wrist injury, so that may be the culprit yet again. Gamers should continue to avoid the Swede until he can prove a clean bill of health.

After five holes of his second round, Carl Pettersson withdrew from the Waste Management Phoenix Open with a wrist injury. UPDATE: Pettersson returned to action on Feb. 18th with an even-par 35-36=71 in the first round of the Northern Trust Open.

The 38-year-old posted a 1-over 72 in the first round, and was 3-over thru his first five holes of round two when he bowed out. Peterrsson entered the week off three straight missed cuts in 2016 and also missed his last two cuts at TPC Scottsdale, so there is probably little fantasy impact, if any. This was the Swede's fifth mid-tournament WD in his 381st career start. He was in the first threesome of No. 10 tee on Friday morning leaving partners Jeff Overton and William McGirt to fend for themselves.

Carl Pettersson puts all his focus on Torrey Pines ahead of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

The Swede looks to rediscover the code of Torrey Pines success. Since a runner-up finish in his 2003 debut, he's failed to find the top 15 again in nine starts since. The problem is avoiding big numbers as he's signed for rounds of 2-over 74 or worse in 14 of his last 30 rounds here. Current form is not on his side, either, as he's finished T39 or worse in all five starts to kick off the new season.

Carl Pettersson finished 37th in strokes gained: putting last season but the anchored broomstick exits stage right with the ban of anchored strokes effective Jan. 1.

The 38-year-old was one of nine TOUR players back in 2013 that were exploring legal recourse against the organization's decision to adopt USGA Rule 14-1b banning anchored strokes, but that went nowhere. So all eyes will be on him et al. in this regard. The Swede played three fall events and posted T48 (, CUT (Shriners) and T39 at the Sanderson Farms after rounds of 67-69-73-71. Subsequently, he was a pre-tourney WD at both the OHL and RSM Classics. Pettersson finished 77th in the FedExCup race last season, making the Playoffs for the sixth straight season and eighth overall in the FEC's nine-year history.

Carl Pettersson has elected not to compete in The RSM Classic.

He stepped out of the field at last week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba early in the week as well. So, the Swede will enter the holiday break 2-for-3 with no top 35s. He's also all done having the option to anchor his putter in PGA TOUR competition as the ban takes effect on Jan. 1.

Carl Pettersson has withdrawn from this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The 38-year-old is 2-for-3 on the young season, the second cut made occurring in Mississippi where he's playing the third round at the moment. He's had virtually zero success at El Camaleón, so gamers won't miss his absence.

Carl Pettersson manufactured a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, finishing five shots off the clubhouse lead.

It seems that anytime we've had reason to think about the Swede, it's because he's one of the notables being forced away from the anchored putting stroke. With a solid second half of 2014-15, he's back on the PGA TOUR for his 14th consecutive season, but there is, indeed, the doubt of how he'll transition on the greens. Ironically, it was his tee ball that failed him at the Country Club of Jackson today. Petterson split only three of the 14 fairways, but he recovered to find 12 greens in regulation. While limiting the damage to a lone bogey at the par-3 seventh hole, he buried six birdies. The set feature a pair of beauties. The first dropped from 46'1" at the par-4 12th; his second notable conversion measured 49 feet, five inches at the par-3 fourth.

Carl Pettersson hopes to jump-start his 14th season on the PGA TOUR this week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Pettersson is 4-for-4 at TPC Summerlin with mixed results. He posted a T12 in the 2013-14 edition and a T5 in 2011 on rounds of 66-67-66-68 (17-under), but also went T67/2009 and T42 in last year's playing. The 38-year-old put up 32 starts in his recently completed 13th season on TOUR, the second most of his career, but mustered only three top 10s, good for 77th in the FedExCup standings. He finished T48 at last week's on rounds of 70-72-71-70.

Carl Pettersson parades into TPC Boston for this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

The Swede arrives in Norton, Massachusetts, ranked 77th in the FedExCup standings. His current form is very interesting, if you believe in pattern play. Over the last eight starts he's alternated top-15 finishes with finishes outside the top 70. Should the trend continue, we'll be seeing Pettersson near the top this weekend after a missed cut at Plainfield Country Club. On top of all that, he finished T9 at last year's DB Championship.

Carl Pettersson authored a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club to wrap his 13th appearance at 14-under 266, three back of champion Davis Love III.

Pettersson won the Wyndham in the inaugural edition at Sedgefield CC in 2008 at 21-under, including a course-record 61 in round two. He was unable to add another title in Greensboro, North Carolina, but the Raleigh resident and NC State product did bag his fifth top 10 in 13 visits. He's a cumulative 93-under in his last nine trips to the Wyndham, which astonishingly included two missed cuts in 2010 and 2013. After opening this year's edition in 64-67-68, the Swede finalized matters with his five birdie against two bogey loop. His set included three consecutive at Nos. 13-15 to push him back up the leaderboard into a four-way tie for sixth, and came after playing his first 12 holes in even. This is the 37-year-old's third top 10 of the season (30 events) with all three coming in his last seven starts.

Carl Pettersson twirled a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his second round of the Wyndham Championship, reaching the midpoint in bogey-free, 9-under 131.

He landed 13 greens in regulation and extended his scrambling clip to 7-for-7 at Sedgefield thus far. Pettersson dropped three birdies, including on both par 5s, but his longest disappeared at the par-4 11th from 12'9". His most testing par saves stretched 13'7" and 11'7" at the par-4 fourth and ninth holes, respectively. The native Swede with deep roots in North Carolina is just two strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Carl Pettersson carded a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Pettersson lives in Raleigh, but his roots in Greensboro are deep. It includes attending Grimsley High School. He's also the all-time earnings leader of this tournament where he's making his 13th consecutive appearance. Today at Sedgefield, the native Swede hit 16 greens in regulation and circled three birdies on each nine, featuring conversions from 21'4" at the par-4 13th hole and 15'2" at the par-5 15th. In addition to his title here in 2008, the 37-year-old has another three top fives and yet another pair of top 20s. We expect him to contend, and he is.
