Steven Alker carded a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Albertsons Boise Open and carries a two-stroke lead into the final round at 20-under 193.
It was hard to predict he would emerge with the lead when he stubbed his toe with a bogey on the very first hole at Hillcrest CC. Fortunately for Alker, he bounced back with a birdie and an eagle on the next two holes and never looked back. In all, he circled five birdies and the aforementioned eagle to go with just the lone bogey. A four-time winner on the Web.com Tour, including earlier this year at the Cleveland Open, he would secure his PGA TOUR card for next season if he holds on to win tomorrow. Jul 19 - 8:39 PM

Steven Alker fired a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Cleveland Open, and then outlasted Dawie van der Walt over the course of 11 playoff holes to claim the fourth Web.com Tour victory of his career.

The final round went out in threesomes off both tees due to the threat of inclement weather, and there was a weather delay late in the morning. As it played out, it proved that threesomes were most definitely needed to finish play on Sunday due to the longest playoff in Web.com Tour history. The previous record was nine holes, which happened at the 1998 Lehigh Valley Open and again in 2009 at the Northeast Pennsylvania Classic. Alker circled eight birdies without a blemish over his first 16 holes, but finished with back-to-back bogeys to fall into the playoff at 14-under 270. The first 10 playoff holes were halved with pars before Alker broke through with a birdie on the par-4 18th. It was the fifth time the 18th hole was utilized in the playoff. With his victory, the Kiwi moves to 12th on the Web.com Tour money list after starting the week ranked 102nd. He's scheduled to compete in his second U.S. Open (T45, 2013).

Steven Alker spun a bogey-free 9-under-par 32-30=62 in the opening round of the Albertsons Boise Open and joined Hunter Haas in the 18-hole lead.

Alker began his afternoon at Hillcrest CC on the back nine, circling three birdies before making the turn. He then turned his attention to the front where he added four more birdies and an eagle. This performance comes just two weeks after he won his third Web.com Tour title in Utah. A strong finish to this week could lock up his PGA TOUR card for 2013-14.

Steven Alker spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Utah Championship and held off Ashley Hall in a playoff to win his third Web.com Tour title at 22-under 262.

Alker jumped out to a quick start with a birdie on the par-5 first and joined Chad Collins in the lead with an eagle at the par-5 third hole. Alker would only add two more birdies the rest of the day, but his ability to navigate Willow Creek CC without a blemish for the second consecutive round was key. He then faced off against Hall in a playoff, and the Kiwi won it with a par. He moves from 149th to 20th on the Web.com Tour money list with the win. While it puts him inside the magical top 25 at the present time, he still has work to do to lock up a PGA TOUR card.

A day after Chad Collins posted a 60 at the Utah Championship, Steven Alker blitzed Willow Creek Country Club for a 10-under-par 29-32=61 in the third round to take the lead at 17-under 196.

Alker circled 10 birdies without a blemish, all coming on the first 16 holes. Severe weather delayed the conclusion of the third round. The final group, featuring Collins, completed just nine holes. They will try and wrap the tournament up on Sunday.
