Will MacKenzie will not compete in the FedExCup Playoffs.
Given that he had surgery on his left knee on July 17 and that there's no bona fide need to tee it up at The Barclays since he's all set for status in 2015-16, it's not surprising that MacKenzie didn't commit to next week's stop at Plainfield Country Club. At 116th in the FedExCup standings, he'd have needed a decent week to advance, anyway. Aug 22 - 2:27 PM

Will MacKenzie has withdrawn from this week's Wyndham Championship.

He's been out of action since missing the cut at the John Deere Classic. The 40-year-old withdrew during The Greenbrier Classic the week prior with a knee injury. On Saturday, July 25, it was reported at The Daily Reflector that the 40-year-old had surgery on July 17 to repair the meniscus in his left knee. He's 116th in the FedExCup standings, so he'll retain fully exempt status for 2015-16, but don't hold your breath for a return at next week's Playoffs.
Aug 17 - 7:27 PM

Will MacKenzie settled for a 1-over-par 37-35=72 in today's opening round of the John Deere Classic.

MacKenzie couldn't give it a go in the finale at Greenbrier due to a knee injury. If it didn't bother him at TPC Deere Run today, that's obviously not reflect on his scorecard. He landed 13 greens in regulation but converted on just two looks to break par. The longest of his two birdies measured 16'4" at the par-4 14th hole. However, the 40-year-old also squared three bogeys, including a pair of three-putts.
Jul 9 - 2:40 PM

Will MacKenzie withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic prior to the start of the final round due to a knee injury.

He was in the first pairing scheduled out at 8:10 a.m. ET on Sunday with Louis Oosthuizen. For the tournament, he was at 1-over-par T78 (tied last) on rounds of 70-68-73. Of note, MacKenzie was mentioning a stiff neck in a TV interview prior to his third round at last week's Travelers Championship, where he sat 6-under at the break. Commentary was that he required physical therapy and would try not to WD. He closed in 6-over 72-74 to finish T68. This is the 40-year-old's fourth mid-tournament WD in 214 career starts and first since the Valero Texas Open in 2010. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's John Deere Classic.
Jul 5 - 9:54 AM

Will MacKenzie added a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in today's second round of the Travelers Championship to post 6-under 134 at the midpoint.

He landed 13 greens in regulation but didn't secure the red number until his birdie try from 30 feet disappeared at the par-4 ninth hole where he concluded his round. Prior to it, MacKenzie exchanged three birdies with one bogey and a double bogey-6 (at the 17th hole). He's five swings in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Will MacKenzie manufactured a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the Travelers Championship, finishing three strokes adrift of the overnight lead.

After teasing us in the fall, MacKenzie has been largely silent this year. He's nabbed a pair of top 20s but still finds himself just 91st in the FedExCup standings. In fact, today's aggregate is his lowest of 2015. He missed only one of the 14 fairways and just two greens in regulation. MacKenzie buried six birdies, including an eight-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 third hole. Two of his conventional conversions dropped from outside 12 feet, the longer measuring 25'2" at the par-4 14th. His only gaffe occurred at the par-5 13th where he rinsed his tee ball en route to a bogey.
Jun 25 - 7:04 PM

Will MacKenzie returns to contest the Travelers Championship for the first time since 2010 and enters the week ranked 91st in the FedExCup standings.

MacKenzie is 7-for-13 on the season with three top 10s, but none since a T6 at the Puerto Rico Open back in March. Since the PRO, he's cracked the top 40 once in eight starts (T20, Wells Fargo Championship) and tossed in five missed cuts, including his last two. The 40-year-old is 5-for-5 at TPC River Highlands with a career-best T26 in 2009, his only top-40 finish in the tournament. The veteran boasts a season-best P2 at the McGladrey Classic back in October, his first start of the season.

Will MacKenzie signed for a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in today's third round of the Wells Fargo Championship and posts 9-under 207, nine shots adrift of the 54-hole leader Rory McIlroy.

MacKenzie was paired with McIlroy in the third-to-last pairing on Saturday so he was a first-hand witness to the Northern Irishman's course-record 61. For his part, MacKenzie mustered just five (of 14 fairways) and 10 greens in regulation circling five birdies against three bogeys. The 40-year-old, who's making his debut at Quail Hollow Club, did manage a few television replays of his own, chipping-in from 15 yards left of the hole on the par-3 13th, to which he triumphantly raised both hands in the air, and also jarring his tee shot on the par-3 17th from 181 yards to six inches for the gimme.
May 16 - 8:39 PM

Despite bogeys on his first and last holes, Will MacKenzie enjoyed a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in today's second round of the Wells Fargo Championship.

He opened the day with a bogey conversion from 15'7" at the par-5 10th hole where he didn't find the putting surface until his fifth stroke. MacKenzie then rattled off six birdies on his next 16 holes, including rolls from 37'9", 28'4" and 11'8" at NOs. 13, 18, and 7, respectively. His bogey-5 at the last was as a result of a poor drive well right of the fairway and cart path. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the day measured 3.368, and at 7-under 137, he's two shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 15 - 1:34 PM

Will MacKenzie opened the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a 4-under-par 36-32=68 to set the very early clubhouse lead.

He went out in the second threesome off the first tee and picked off a field-high eight birdies. Three of them traveled longer than 11 feet, including a gem from 29'8" at the par-4 16th hole. On the downside, MacKenzie went 0-for-3 in scrambling with three bogeys and added a three-jack bogey from 33'4" at the par-3 third hole.
Apr 23 - 1:06 PM

Will MacKenzie has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

He missed the cut in the tournament last year. It was the first of eight consecutive MCs following a torrid first half. MacKenzie has made only eight starts this season, primarily due to a late return in 2015 due to a sore left hand. He's comfortably positioned at 59th in the FedExCup standings.
Apr 13 - 2:05 PM

Will MacKenzie makes fifth-career start at the GC of Houston.

MacKenzie has never cashed a check in Humble, TX going zero for four in his previous looks (last visit was in 2011). After recovering from a left hand injury, he made his season debut with a MC at Honda. He impressed the following week with a T6 at Puerto Rico but he's since been heading in the wrong direction (T44 at Valspar and solo 74th at Valero).
Mar 31 - 2:24 PM

Will MacKenzie proved that his left hand is no longer an issue in today's bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 to conclude the Puerto Rico Open.

Gamers would love to give all touring pros the benefit of the doubt, but we know better. MacKenzie earned it this week, however. At 6-under 282, he shares the 72-hole clubhouse lead with Will Wilcox. The two-time PGA TOUR winner bogeyed only two of his last 56 holes at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico this week. Suddenly, gamers will have an exciting option at Copperhead come Thursday. MacKenzie, who is committed to this week's Valspar Championship, tied for fourth at last year's edition.
Mar 8 - 3:19 PM

Will MacKenzie shot a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in his opening round of The Honda Classic, finishing seven swings adrift of the overnight lead.

This is MacKenzie's first live action since Mayakoba in mid-November due to an injury in his left hand. His record at PGA National is sterling, so gamers that go all-in on course history were faced with a dilemma. They should be pleased given he hit only 10 greens in regulation and squared six bogeys. MacKenzie whiffed on five looks inside 10 feet, but he also converted four birdies, all from inside five feet. Today's relative success also serves as a relief to full-season leaguers that needed to exhale.
Feb 26 - 6:12 PM

Will MacKenzie is scheduled to return to competition at next week's Honda Classic.

So far, so good. It was on Feb. 7 that MacKenzie informed a curious follower on Twitter that he was hoping to get back at it at either the Northern Trust Open or the Honda. And while he's been nursing an injury to his left hand, he picked a great spot to play. Since PGA National began hosting the Honda in 2007, he's 5-for-5 with two top 10s and another two top 25s. As for viability in fantasy formats, it may not make sense given his health and potential rust factor.
