Will MacKenzie turns his attention to Congressional Country Club for this week's Quicken Loans National.
MacKenzie returns to Congressional after a four-year absence, in desperate search of a weekend tee time. After nine top 15s in his first 13 events, things have gone South, missing six consecutive cuts. With no recent course history, this comes down to a battle of season form vs. recent form for MacKenzie. Not safe by any means, but certainly worth a look from gamers seeking a high-upside option in deeper formats. Jun 25 - 10:35 AM

Will MacKenzie returns to Muirfield Village for his third Memorial Tournament.

MacKenzie hasn't been to this event since 2009, but his memories should be fond ones. He tied for 11th here in 2007 and improved to T10 in 2009. At 24th in the FedExCup standings, he would seem like a lock for most fantasy formats this week. The problem is, he's missed his last four cuts. This is the classic contradiction of course history versus current form.

Will MacKenzie finds his way back to the RBC Heritage after a two-year absence.

MacKenzie enters the week ranked 14th in the FedExCup standings as his post-prime breakout year continues. MacKenzie is a perfect 5-for-5 at Harbour Town Golf Links, but course history hardly matters with a golfer playing this well. It's hard to exclude him in any format this week when you consider his nine top-15 finishes on the season.
Apr 16 - 2:22 PM

Will MacKenzie fired a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open to take over the clubhouse lead at 7-under 281.

MacKenzie was tied for second at the time of his posting, with only Steven Bowditch ahead of him on the leaderboard. MacKenzie picked up three birdies to just one bogey on his final navigation of TPC San Antonio, with his 13'8" effort on the par-4 17th the only one outside of five feet. This is a continuation of the form he's been touting of late, having finished inside the top 10 in two of his last three starts. In total, he entered this week with eight top-15 finishes. The putter was the key to his week, as he ranked inside the top five in strokes gained and putting average.
Mar 30 - 5:21 PM

Will MacKenzie turned in a 2-under-par 37-33=70 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open and enters the finale at 5-under 211.

Four of MacKenzie's five birdies fell from outside nine feet, including a holed bunker shot on the par-3 16th, so there wasn't much conventional or boring about his round. A double bogey at the par-5 eighth had him on tilt, but he closed out his day with three consecutive birdies beginning with the par-4 15th before ending with a par at the 18th. He already has four top 10s in 2013-14, and is well positioned for a fifth in Sunday's final round.
Mar 29 - 5:17 PM

Will MacKenzie settled for an even-par 33-39=72 in his second round of the Valero Texas Open.

Given that he hit only eight greens in regulation during this loop of TPC San Antonio, he probably can't complain, but he wasn't over par at any point, either. MacKenzie opened with an 11-foot birdie conversion at the 10th hole. After a birdie-bogey trade at 12 and 13, respectively, he jarred a bunker shot for eagle from 25 yards at the par-5 14th. Another 11-footer ensued at the par-4 15th, this time for par. He went bogey-birdie at 16-17 and reached the turn in 3-under. Alas, he'd square three bogeys against no par breakers coming in, two of which on par 5s. The other occurred at the par-3 third where he rinsed his tee ball and eventually drilled home a bogey conversion from 21'5". MacKenzie is 3-under 141, five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 28 - 7:44 PM

Will MacKenzie carded a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open, finishing one stroke off the early clubhouse lead.

Here he is again. MacKenzie hit 14 greens in regulation at TPC San Antonio and rolled in five birdies, including conversions from 16'11" and 18'1" at the second and 14th holes, respectively. He suffered just one gaffe, that a double-bogey 6 at the ninth hole. It seems only a matter of time before all of the stars align and he's hoisting some hardware for the first time since 2008. He entered this week with four top 10s and another four top 15s, both easily career highs.
Mar 27 - 3:50 PM

Will MacKenzie posted a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the final round of the Valspar Championship to take the lead in the clubhouse at 4-under 280.

After trading three birdies for three bogeys on the front nine of the Copperhead Course, MacKenzie outpaced his lone bogey on the back nine with three birdies. This will easily be his fourth top-10 finish of 2013-14, but don't count him out for a victory or a playoff. The lowest score on the course at the time of his posting was 6-under, held by Scott Langley. Langley still has The Snake Pit to navigate, so MacKenzie shouldn't be leaving the grounds anytime soon.
Mar 16 - 4:56 PM

Will MacKenzie turned in a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Valspar Championship, reaching the 54-hole mark at 2-under 211.

Willy Mac didn't have any trouble finding birdies, circling seven at the Copperhead Course in the third round. Preventing him from doing some serious damage were four bogeys, including two on par 5s. In an 11-hole stretch from the par-4 third to the par-3 13th, he only recorded one par. He entered this week having made his last five cuts, with four of those going for top 20s. It looks like he's cruising towards another high finish.
Mar 15 - 3:24 PM

Will MacKenzie survived a tough final round of The Honda Classic, signing for an even-par 34-36=70 and ending the tournament at 6-under 274.

MacKenzie is in the midst of a great season and his week at PGA National stands as the best of the bunch. This is his third top 10, and seventh top 25 of the 2013-14 season in just his 10th start. Playing the part of a grizzled veteran, he collect 16 pars to go with one birdie and one bogey in the finale. His scorecard would show well at a U.S. Open, with 11 birdies and five bogeys surrounding his 56 pars.
Mar 2 - 4:53 PM

Will MacKenzie signed for a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The Honda Classic, improving to 6-under 204 for the tournament.

MacKenzie was on a run early in his round, with two birdies on the first five holes at PGA National, but played the remaining 13 holes in 1-over. Both his ball-striking and putting were statistically the worst they had been all week, so perhaps he will walk away happy he at least posted a round in red figures. He'll try and wrangle his third top 10 of the season in Sunday's finale.
Mar 1 - 4:39 PM

Will MacKenzie backed up his opening 67 at The Honda Classic with a bogey-free, 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round.

Boy, he's in such a zone right now. He went 6-for-6 in scrambling today thanks in part to par conversions from 10'7" and 17'10" at the 15th and sixth holes, respectively. MacKenzie's longer of two birdies measured just 11'7" at 14. At 5-under 135, he sits six strokes adrift of the 36-hole lead.
Feb 28 - 6:10 PM

Will MacKenzie carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of The Honda Classic, finishing two strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

MacKenzie has elbowed his way into the conversation on several occasions this season. He's 27th in FedExCup points on the strength of two top 10s and another four top 20s. After opening with a bogey conversion from 10'3" at the par-4 first hole at PGA National today, he played the course in bogey-free 4-under the rest of the way, picking up four birdies, including rolls of 14'10" and 27'1" at the fourth and 13th holes, respectively. MacKenzie also poured in a par save from 14'6" at 11.
Feb 27 - 1:59 PM

Will MacKenzie posted a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, ending his week at 4-under 283.

He began his morning on the 10th tee, immediately swallowing his first of three bogeys. He did most of his damage on the par 5s, circling birdies on three of the four. The highlight was the par-4 fourth, holing out for eagle from 93 yards. He's on the bubble for a top-10 finish. Should he eke one out, it would be the third of his season.
Feb 9 - 5:39 PM

With a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in his final round of the Farmers Insurance Open, Will MacKenzie secured a spot inside the top 10.

He's been one of the most refreshing comeback stories early on as this is his fifth top-15 finish of the season in only seven starts. He buried five birdies against three bogeys today, but none of his 18 conversions traveled more than the 7'7" for par at the par-3 11th hole. At 7-under 281, he finished two strokes off Scott Stallings' winning aggregate.
