Purdy hasn't played the PGA TOUR full-time since 2010. He's just six cuts made from touching 150 for his career, but he's cashed exactly six times in the last five seasons combined.

Ted Purdy turned in a 3-under-par 34-34=68 at Heron Point Golf Links in Alberton, Ont., in today's open qualifier for the RBC Canadian Open, two strokes too high to join the playoff for the final of four berths into the tournament proper.

Purdy missed the cut on the number at last week's Sanderson Farms Championship. Thanks to a T73/MDF at the HP Byron Nelson Championship, he sits T249 in FedExCup points. After opening with a bogey-5 at the first hole today, he played the remainder in bogey-free 4-under with four birdies, but picked off only one birdie on the set of four par 5s. The one-time PGA TOUR winner was the only notable from the four-spotter.

Ted Purdy will tee it up in his ninth HP Byron Nelson Championship this week.

Purdy's starts are limited, playing with only Past Champion status. Because of that, there is little way to capture his current form ahead of his trip to TPC Four Seasons. As the winner of the 2005 edition of this event, it's possible there will be enough good memories to catapult him to success.

In today's open qualifier for the FedEx St. Jude Classic, Ted Purdy carded a 5-under-par 35-32=67 on the East Course at Windyke Country Club in Memphis to earn a tee time at TPC Southwind on Thursday.

With U.S. Open sectional qualifiers booked across the country on Monday, today's four-spotter is the only of its kind scheduled for a Sunday. Purdy buried seven birdies against two bogeys to share runner-up honors with John Peterson, who turned in a bogey-free 33-34=67 on the strength of five birdies. Austin Gutgsell was the medalist at 6-under 34-32=66, circling an eagle and five birdies to overcome a lone bogey. The final berth went to Dustin Morris, who survived a 4-for-1 playoff. Morris shot 3-under 34-35=69 with six birdies and three bogeys, and then outlasted Alex Hamilton (35-34), David McKendrick (36-33) and David Robinson (33-36). The field for the St. Jude is now completed at 156.

Ted Purdy carded a third round of 6-under-par 64 and currently is in a tie for 26th place at the Frys,com Open.

Purdy had five birdies the round, but after carding his only bogey of the day at the par-4 15th hole, he bounced back with a hole-in-one at the par-3 16th hole. The ace earned Purdy a Mercedes-Benz E350 sedan and it started a sequence that saw a holes-in-one by Nicholas Thompason at the 11th and Chad Campbell at the 16th. It was the third time this season that three or more aces have occurred during a round on the PGA Tour.

Ted Purdy posted a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing one stroke off the 18-hole lead.

Fresh off a T-5 at Quail Hollow, Purdy has been consistent if not a sleeper this year. In today's afternoon wave, he hit 14 GIR and needed only 27 putts, sinking an eagle-3 and six birdies in his first loop of La Cantera. Since scoring on Friday morning should be low like it was for today's opening wave, daily leagues should plug Purdy into their lineups and not think twice about it.

Ted Purdy carded a 5-under par 67 in his opening round of the AT&T Classic.

Purdy his just half of his fairways but found 16 GIR, which is his style. The 67 is his career-low round in eight loops of TPC Sugarloaf. Outstanding weather aided him on Thursday but if he back it up in the second round, he could be a sleeper on the weekend.
