Ben Curtis has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.
Curtis will be making his first appearance of the new season. He has conditional status for finishing 131st in FedExCup points in 2013-14. He then went 1-for-4 in the Web.com Tour Finals with only a T52 at the finale. Curtis will get some play in fantasy circles if for no other reason than he's proven on multiple occasion to get white-hot when we least expected it. Perhaps there's no time like the present. He's cashed in all four editions of the McGladrey with one top 25 (T15, 2010). Oct 20 - 12:04 PM

Ben Curtis scored 6 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship, with 5 points coming on one hole.

Curtis recorded a hole-in-one on the par-3 third hole from 165 yards with an 8-iron at Montrêux G&CC. The rest of his round featured two birdies, both on par 5s, and a trio of bogeys. He began his round in a tie for 37th and stands to lose a little ground without some late help from the lead groups. He enters the finale with 18 points.

Ben Curtis tied for 17th at The Greenbrier Classic in 2013 and is back this week for the fifth time.

Curtis has never missed the cut at The Old White TPC, but has never done any better than his 2013 effort. Having made his last three PGA TOUR cuts, beginning with a T6 at the Memorial, he is boasting some of his best form of the season. That said, at 132nd in the FedExCup standings, he still has plenty of work to do if he is to participate in the FEC Playoffs.

Ben Curtis completed 72 holes of the Memorial in 9-under-par 69-71-69-70=279 and sits four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

The local native really needed this recharge. His only top 30 of the season was a T12 in Houston after which he missed four straight cuts. He'll finish inside the top 10 today for the first time since the 2012 PLAYERS. Curtis exchanged four birdies with two bogeys in the finale. His longest par breakers measured 30 feet and 14'6" at the fifth and sixth holes, respectively.

Ben Curtis posted 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Memorial.

Born in Columbus, it's refreshing that he found success in today's lid-lifter. Curtis arrived riding an 0-for-4 skid and sitting 155th in FedExCup points. He hit 13 greens in regulation and capitalized five times for birdies, the longest stretching 13'1" at the 12th hole and 12 feet at 15. He'd go on to sign his card sitting three strokes off the early clubhouse lead.

Ben Curtis will give it a go in his home state at this week's Memorial Tournament.

The native Ohioan will have plenty of supporters this week as he attempts to improve on his already impressive 8-for-11 record at Muirfield Village. The bad news for gamers is only two of those eight cuts made went for top-25 finishes, and Curtis also enters the week on the heels of four straight missed cuts. A weekend tee time is likely, but that is where the expectations should end.

Ben Curtis returns to Quail Hollow for the 11th consecutive year for this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Curtis surely has a love-hate relationship with Quail Hollow as he's missed the cut in three of his last four trips, but also has two top-5 finishes to his name. After a T12 finish at the Shell Houston Open, Curtis has lost the momentum with two consecutive cuts missed. That makes him a risky investment for gamers this week.

Ben Curtis carded a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open and is tied for fifth at 8-under 208 with one round to go.

Curtis found himself at 3-under on the day with two to play, but ended his round at Golf Club of Houston with back-to-back bogeys. Somewhat uncharacteristic, his 43 GIR have him ranked in a tie for second this week. Perhaps it's just something about Texas, as his most recent victory came at the 2012 Valero Texas Open. He hasn't cracked the top 30 in any of his 2013-14 PGA TOUR starts, so tomorrow sets up to be an important day.
Apr 5 - 4:08 PM

Ben Curtis turned in a 2-under-par 35-35=70 for his second round of the Shell Houston Open to reach the midpoint in 7-under 67-70=137.

He went 5-for-5 in scrambling but squared a bogey-4 at the 14th hole where he three-putted from 53'9". Otherwise, it was a splendid day that featured three birdies, the longest measuring 38'2" at the par-4 second. He five strokes off the overnight lead and two strokes inside the top 10 on the leaderboard.
Apr 4 - 7:53 PM

Ben Curtis posted a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

Curtis missed only one green in regulation but his lone bogey occurred at the par-4 fifth hole where he three-putted from 50'7". Elsewhere, he wrangled three birdies on each nine, including rolls from 11'9" and 14'10" at the ninth and 14th holes, respectively. This round ties his low aggregate of the season (fourth round, Shriners) and it's the sixth time in eight events during the 2014 portion of the schedule that Curtis has posted a red number in the lid-lifter, but he hasn't broken par in the second round or later since a 69 in his second round of the Farmers where he missed the cut anyway. In other words, beware the rest of the way at the Golf Club of Houston. He's currently one stroke off the clubhouse lead.
Apr 3 - 3:51 PM

Ben Curtis crafted a bogey-free, 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

The 2012 VTO champ hasn't had a top 10 on the PGA TOUR in 22 months, but veteran gamers know that he can be one of the streakiest talents to have ever played the game. If we're treated to another out-of-nowhere burst this week, he may point to a pair of par saves early today as catalysts. After going rough-bunker-bunker at the par-5 second hole, he blasted to 27 feet before burying the par putt. By comparison, his par conversion from 10'1" was pedestrian but no less important. In fact, he parred each of the first 16 holes before walking off birdie-birdie on the shoulders of respective rolls from 21'2" and 10'9" at 17 and 18. Curtis hit 13 greens overall and signed his card just two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Ben Curtis returns to the Valspar Championship for the fifth time.

Don't expect experience to be the key to success, as he's missed the cut every time. Not only that, seven of his eight rounds have been over par. He currently stands 169th in the FedExCup standings, with all signs now screaming for gamers to keep away.

Ben Curtis enters this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open ranked 137th in FedExCup points.

It's still early so that doesn't seem like much of a hurdle, but he's yet to log a top 30 in six starts, three of which resulted in a missed cut. Furthermore, he's gone 32 starts without a top 15. Fully exempt through this season via his victory at the 2012 Valero Texas Open, the 36-year-old's career has exemplified the quintessential roller coaster. Until he begins another upward climb, keeps your hands off.

Ben Curtis remains fully exempt on the PGA TOUR for the 2013-14 season thanks to his win at the 2012 Valero Texas Open.

A win in a PGA TOUR event allows for full exemption for the remainder of that season as well as the subsequent two. Curtis needed that extra year, failing to finish inside the top 125 on either the money list or the FedExCup standings in 2013. His 2013-14 campaign started off a little better. He made three of four cuts with a T32 at The McGladrey Classic accounting for his best effort.

Ben Curtis ended his week at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with a 4-under-par 33-34=67, finishing the tournament at 6-under 278.

A 4-under round sounds simple enough, however it was anything but boring. Curtis opened his day at TPC Summerlin with a birdie on the par-4 first, then made a double bogey at the par-4 third. The bounce back was sweet, as he rattled off four consecutive birdies beginning with the next hole, but squared a bogey on the eighth to break the streak. If you're keeping score at home, that's exactly one par on his first eight holes. He would then add three birdies to just one bogey the rest of the way. The putter was they key, as he had gained over 2.5 strokes on the field with the flat stick at the time he posted.
