In an encore to his nine-birdie 65 on Thursday, Steven Alker turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.
The Kiwi added six birdies to total a field-high 15 for the week. His set featured conversions from 11'8" and 13'3" at the par-4 15th and seventh holes, respectively. However, he also bogeyed the par-3 14th where he rinsed his tee ball, and would eventually walk off bogey-double bogey on the front side of TPC Southwind. All told, at 7-under 133, he's just two swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Jun 12 - 7:39 PM

Steven Alker rattled in nine birdies en route to a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The 43-year-old from New Zealand had a day for the ages at TPC Southwind with those nine circles, but this is also his lowest round of 149 on the PGA TOUR. You gotta feel good for the guy as he's a journeyman's journeyman. And he hit only 12 greens in regulation. Eight of the birdies came conventionally, including conversions from 11'10" and 16'6" at Nos. 7 and 18, respectively, and he also holed out for birdie from a bunker 13 yards away at the par-4 13th. He signed his card positioned only one stroke off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders and leading the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green (4.503 at last check).

Steven Alker enjoyed a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

Alker hit the ground running with a birdie-3 from 14 feet at the first hole. He chased it with six more birdies, four of which from outside 10 feet. His longest found the cup from 27'7" at the par-5 eighth. His seven birdies co-led the field when he signed his card. He also squared four bogeys, including a three-putt from just 17'4" at the par-5 fifth, but the Kiwi is a mere four shots off the clubhouse lead. This marked his first competitive loop of Quail Hollow since his only previous appearance in his rookie year of 2003.

Steven Alker has been added to the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

The Kiwi was the third alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry following two withdrawals this morning. He's riding an 0-for-4 slide dating back to the Farmers in early February. In his only previous start at Quail Hollow, he missed the cut in the inaugural edition of the tournament in 2003.

Steven Alker returns to the Zurich Classic of New Orleans this week after an 11-year recess.

If Alker woke up today in a time machine, he may be confused by the change in tournament name and venue since he last played at this event. He's posted red numbers in 15-of-27 rounds on the season but that equates to just three paydays in 10 starts. Gamers can pass over Alker when setting fantasy rosters this week.
Apr 22 - 8:19 AM

Steven Alker is set for his first Puerto Rico Open this week.

This will go in the books as Alker's 10th PGA TOUR start of the season, with three of the first nine resulting in weekend tee times. He's made just one of his last six cuts, tying for 59th in the Humana Challenge. There is little reason to invest in him at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico.
Mar 3 - 8:27 PM

Steven Alker makes his eighth start of the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season in this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Alker enters this week after a T59 in the Humana Challenge in his last action. While that doesn't seem like much of a highlight, it's sure beats the three missed cuts he was riding running into that event. His best finish of the year was a T32 in The McGladrey Classic.
Feb 4 - 10:16 PM

Steven Alker collected two paydays during the fall to arrive at the holiday break ranked 132nd in the FedExCup standings.

Alker earned his PGA TOUR card through the Tour money list, where he finished 10th last season. His best finish thus far comes in the form of a T32 at The McGladrey Classic. The Kiwi has played just one complete season on TOUR, but he posted a 13-for-30 record and that was way back in 2003. His overall career record is 19-for-45 and can be avoided by gamers most weeks.

Steven Alker will have his first look at El Camaleón Golf Club for this week's OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

The four-time Tour winner is making his fifth start of this early PGA TOUR season, posting a 2-for-4 record thus far. His success on the second-tier Tours hasn't translated to the main stage, as he's 19-for-44 in his career, and no top 10s on his resume. Alker will try to go low this weekend so he can keep getting these starts after the first reshuffle.

Steven Alker is set to begin the 2014-15 season on the PGA TOUR after departing the Tour with the 11th spot on the opening reshuffle.

Alker's highlight was a win at the Cleveland Open, and then he lost in a playoff four starts later at the Albertsons Boise Open. His third, and final, top five of the season came at the WinCo Foods Portland Open, tying for fifth. He is a veteran of 40 PGA TOUR events, having made 17 cuts and earning four top 25s. He's never cracked the top 10 in a PGA TOUR event. At 43 years of age, his best days are likely behind him.

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 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.

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 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 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 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 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 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 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.
