Charlie Wi received a shoulder tap from K.J. Choi as the duo teams up for this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.
The five-time PGA TOUR runner-up will be making his first start since a T57 at last fall's Sanderson Farms Championship. It was a rare start for the veteran who is just 4-for-15 on the PGA TOUR since the start of the 2014-15 season. As for his track record at TPC Louisiana, Wi is 6-for-8 here including a runner-up finish back in 2009. The 45-year-old is a long shot to contend, but with a team format this week, anything is possible. Tue, Apr 25, 2017 11:17:00 AM

Charlie Wi crafted a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 2-under 138, up 18 spots to T22 with play still in progress. UPDATE: Wi finished up at 1-over 281 on rounds of 70-68-73-70, currently T43 on the leaderboard.

The 44-year-old was 11th alternate when the field was published on Friday, so a lot of things had to go right for him to make his sixth appearance, particularly several sectional-qualifiers to the U.S. Open who then WD. His best is T28 in 2014 and he MC'd last year by 12 after 74-79. Wi's last full season on TOUR was 2014 and has primarily been playing the Tour since. This is just his second start on TOUR this season and in the first, he WD after a first-round 75 at Sanderson Farms in November, so, making the weekend in Memphis is a big deal. Wi opened with a 70 (four birdies, two bogeys, double bogey-5) and circled five in R2 against one bogey and a double bogey-6. This is his first made cut on TOUR since the 2014 Sanderson Farms 19 months ago.

Charlie Wi withdrew from the Sanderson Farms Championship during his second round.

He sat 3-under-par with three holes to play, but Wi wasn't going to make the cut at even through 33. This is just his second mid-tournament WD in 242 PGA TOUR starts. Going back to the 2015 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, the Veteran Member has now failed to cash in eight consecutive starts.

Charlie Wi readies for his sixth appearance in the Barracuda Championship at Montrêux Golf and Country Club.

After playing full seasons in each of the past eight years on the PGA TOUR, Wi has made just eight starts in 2014-15, missing six cuts. His two paydays were last fall, a T39 at the CIMB Classic (season best) and a T43 at the Sanderson Farms Championship. Wi didn't qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs last season for the first time since its inception in 2007. He enters this week 218th in the FEC standings. Wi has made 10 starts on the Tour season, playing the weekend nine times and posting one top 10. He slots 83rd on that tour's money list. The 43-year-old has cashed three times in five starts at the Barracuda, with one top 10 (T11/2013).

Charlie Wi gets the seventh start of his PGA TOUR season at the John Deere Classic and enters the week 213th in the FedExCup standings.

Wi began the 2014-15 season with one start as part of a Minor Medical Extension to earn 109 FedExCup points or $327,549. After failing to do so, he now plays on conditional status. The 43-year-old has made two cuts in six events with a T39 at the CIMB Classic in November a season-best. He's also made nine starts this season on the Tour, cashing eight times with one top 10 (T8, El Bosque Mexico Championship). It was his first top 10 on either the PGA TOUR or the Tour since the 2013 Quicken Loans National. Wi is 2-for-7 at the JDC with one top 10 (T4/2008), missing his last three and four of his last five cuts. Interestingly enough, he's never won on the PGA TOUR (in 238 career starts) although a runner-up five times, most recently in 2012 (AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am)

Charlie Wi has gained entry into this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon, and then added when Scott Gardiner withdrew. The 43-year-old tied for 29th here last year. He's 2-for-4 this season but hasn't picked off a top 35 on the PGA TOUR since a T29 in Canada last July. Wi has juggled conditional status with a full schedule on the Tour where he's 53rd on the money list with seven paydays in eight starts.

Charlie Wi enters this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am ranked 172nd in the FedExCup standings.

Pebble Beach has been favorable to Wi, as he finished runner-up in 2012 and has three other top 30s to his name in nine career starts. Wi took a step back in 2013-14 as it was the first year he missed more cuts than he made since 2006. The bounce-back season is starting well after two cuts made in two starts during the fall. Gamers can should give Wi a second look this week as a possible sleeper in DFS formats.

Charlie Wi reeled in a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in his second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Wi landed only 11 greens in regulation today (to total just 20 for the tournament thus far). He squared bogeys at the fifth and sixth holes, but didn't stumble elsewhere. On the way in, he converted birdies at 10, 14 and 18 to finish in red number for the second straight day. At 5-under 139, he's just one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Charlie Wi smoke-and-mirrored his way to a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Wi failed to meet the terms of his Minor Medical Extension at the CIMB Classic, but he's conditionally exempt for the remainder of the season, which means that he's eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs. He split 10 (of 14) fairways, but landed only nine greens in regulation at the Country Club of Jackson today. No biggie. While he squared three late bogeys, he more than compensated with an eagle-3 (at the 11th hole) and five birdies to post up just three shot off the clubhouse lead. Wi has gone 32 consecutive starts since the most recent of his 21st career top 10 (2013 Quicken Loans National).

At 3-under-par 72-70-72-71=285, Charlie Wi finished in a seven-way tie for 39th place at the CIMB Classic in what was the only start on his Minor Medical Extension.

He needed no worse than a solo fifth-place finish to fulfill the terms of the medical. However, he had nothing to lose since he placed 149th in the FedExCup standings in 2013-14. As a result, he'll drift into the conditional status category for the remainder of the season. For the record, Wi fell short of his targets by 80.100 FedExCup points and $300,249. To meet the terms with earnings, he would have needed to finish no worse than solo fourth in Kuala Lumpur. Look for him again at next week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

Charlie Wi has one start on a Minor Medical Extension to earn $327,549 or 109.100 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Wi received the medical for a injured ring finger on his right hand, but he acknowledged in January that he had suffered a torn ligament in his thumb at the end of 2013, so these maladies may or may not be related. Whatever the case, he pieced together a season feature 11 paydays in 25 starts. When he elects to burn the start, Wi will have nothing to lose since he finished 149th in the FedExCup standings, so he's already set for conditional status in 2014-15.

Charlie Wi was the first to arrive in the clubhouse at 5-under 205 after a third round score of 4-under 32-34=66 at the RBC Canadian Open.

Wi's ascension up the leaderboard was a product of six par breakers, including a nontraditional eagle, holing out on the par-4 ninth from 179 yards out. It was a second shot kind of day, as he split just five (of 14) fairways but recovered nicely with his irons and flat stick. Wi sat just inside the top 25 at the time of his posting. If he can hold onto that position tomorrow, he would grab his first top 25 since January at the Humana Challenge.

Charlie Wi opened the RBC Canadian Open with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to put a stake down for the very early clubhouse lead.

Wi went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee at Royal Montreal Golf Club's Blue Course this morning. He ranks 155th in FedExCup points after missing his last four cuts, but he opened with a hole-out for birdie from the greenside rough at the par-4 10th today. Wi added five birdies, including a three-yarder from the fringe at the par-3 17th and a pair outside 10 feet on the greens at 2 and 7. He could have taken it even deeper if not for a pair of two-putts from inside seven feet, but considering his form entering the week, he should have been smiling when he signed his card.

Charlie Wi is in jeopardy of missing the FedExCup Playoffs as he enters this week's RBC Canadian Open.

The writing was on the wall last year when Wi barely snuck into the playoffs at 118th place, but now he may miss out on The Barclays for the first time in the playoff era, as he enters the week ranked 155th. With four straight missed cuts ahead of the Canadian Open, expectations are low, but motivation can be a powerful tool.

Charlie Wi enters the Travelers Championship ranked 137th in the FedExCup standings.

Wi is trending in the right direction after back-to-back top-30 finishes at the HP Byron Nelson Championship and FedEx St. Jude Classic. He appeared to hit a rough patch starting last year at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, and has made the weekend in just 17 of his 34 starts since. Gamers should keep an eye on him this week to see if his good form continues.
