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.

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.

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.
Feb 20 - 6:30 PM

Will MacKenzie will not return to competition at next week's Northern Trust Open.

MacKenzie eyed either the NTO or The Honda Classic in two weeks to resume his schedule in the wake of an injury to his left hand. So, we'll push our expectation out a week and check back at this time next Friday when the field for the Florida Swing's lid-lifter is released.
Feb 13 - 7:30 PM

Will MacKenzie circled a pair of tournaments this month at which he hopes to resume his 2014-15 season.

In a response to an inquiry on Twitter, MacKenzie replied, "fighting a hand injury but hoping to be back by LA or Honda." The Northern Trust Open is scheduled for Feb. 19-22. The Honda Classic opens the Florida Swing a week later. He's been sidelined since the fall with an injury to his left hand. He's 28th in the FedExCup standings thanks to a P2 at The McGladrey Classic and a T9 at Mayakoba.
Feb 8 - 2:40 AM

In response to a query on Twitter on Jan. 20, Will MacKenzie revealed that he's dealing with an injury.

MacKenzie was asked about his early schedule for 2015. His reply: "probably not until San Diego. Nursing a sore left hand." Well, San Diego means this week's Farmers Insurance Open. He's not in the published field. Thanks to a blistering fall, he 28th in the FedExCup standings, so owners can remain patient. You'll want him certain that he's ready to go before he returns.
Feb 3 - 12:53 AM

Will MacKenzie slumped late in the 2013-14 PGA TOUR campaign, but he is off to a stellar start in the 2014-15 season.

His first action was a playoff loss to Robert Streb at The McGladrey Classic. MacKenzie followed that up with a T52 at the CIMB Classic and a T9 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. His hard work has him 11th in the FedExCup standings. He was off to a blazing start last season, but gamers will remember that he lost his focus late in the Spring and never produced to nearly the same level late in the season.

Will MacKenzie turned in a 5-under-par 34-32=66 for his work in the final round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to end the week at 11-under 273.

MacKenzie circled six birdies to just one bogey on his last lap around El Camaleón Golf Club. His ball-striking was excellent, splitting each of the 14 fairways and landing 15 GIR. He opened the tournament with rounds of 65 and 68, but a third-round 74 cost him any shot at taking home the trophy.

Overnight co-leader Will MacKenzie chased his opening 65 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in today's second round to post 9-under 133 at the break.

He's three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. After landing 16 greens in regulation on Thursday, MacKenzie piled up another 15 today and drilled in five birdies, including four in a row beginning at the par-3 fourth hole. He ended on the back of El Camaleón. He's also missed only seven of 28 fairways thus far. As long as he continues to give himself opportunities to score, he should not be ruled out to contend for his third PGA TOUR victory and first since 2008.

With a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba, Will MacKenzie has grabbed sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

The first golfer eliminated in the three-man playoff at The McGladrey Classic three weeks ago settled for a T52 in Malaysia before taking last week off. It did him some good today. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at El Camaleón Golf Club. Along the way, MacKenzie converted an eagle at the par-5 13th hole and five birdies. His only miscue was a bogey-5 at No. 16.

Will MacKenzie crawled in with a 4-over-par 39-37=76 in the final round of the CIMB Classic.

Last week's first playoff loser squared four bogeys and failed to find a par breakers on Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club today. He posted 1-over 289 and sits outside the top 50 on the leaderboard that includes just 77 golfers. Time will now tell if the P2 at Seaside was an anomaly or a harbinger. The fact remains, it's the only top 25 in his last 16 starts.

Overnight co-leader Will MacKenzie closed out The McGladrey Classic with a 2-under-par 33-35=68 to post 14-under 266 and join the playoff to determine the champion.

Robert Streb and Brendon de Jonge finished before him, but only MacKenzie has won a PGA TOUR event before, twice in fact. He hit 17 greens in regulation and converted three birdies today, the longest from 15-and-a-half feet at the par-4 eighth hole. He couldn't avoid a miscue, however, three-putting from just inside 80 feet at the par-4 16th. Regardless of what happens in the playoff, MacKenzie will procure his first top 25 since late March. Golf Channel's Gary Koch said during today's telecast that MacKenzie sat back and enjoyed his early-season success in 2013-14. It seems that the realization has paid dividends, especially for gamers that remained faithful entering the new season. PLAYOFF UPDATE: MacKenzie missed the fairway at the par-4 18th hole and found a greenside bunker on approach. His escape was below average in that he was still away at 32'7". A long par try missed on the high side. The other two parred to eliminate MacKenzie.
