Michael Sim picked up the victory in the inaugural Midwest Classic back in 2009 and is back in action this week in the 2014 edition.
Sim has been a ghost, last playing on the Web.com Tour in 2012 where he finished 142nd on the money list. His last two starts across the globe went for a respectable T31 at The 33rd GS Caltax Maekyung Open and T24 at the SC Telecom Open earlier in 2014. Considering he received a battlefield promotion for three wins in the 2009 season, his star has fallen quite a bit. Perhaps he gets back on track at Nicklaus GC at LionsGate. Jul 23 - 1:28 PM

Michael Sim signed for an even-par 36-35=71 following his opening round of the Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship on the Nationwide Tour.

This is the Opening Day 2012 for the Nationwide Tour. Sim was dogged by the flu that forced him to withdraw the season finale on the PGA TOUR in October. He's also battled a shoulder injury in the last couple of years. He has no status on the PGA TOUR but we wanted to tie off this loose end and send him on his way as he attempts to return to the big leagues.

Michael Sim is listed in the published field of next week's Pacific Rubiales Columbia Championship on the Nationwide Tour.

It's still hard to believe that he's back on the developmental circuit, but injuries and poor play have driven him there. While he's competed worldwide over the last couple of months, he hasn't entered an official event since withdrawing at the midpoint of the 2011 PGA TOUR finale at Disney World. The Aussie is now 27 years of age and ranked 512th in the world.

Michael Sim did not log a score at today's opening round of the second stage of Q School at Bear Creek Golf Club in Murrieta, Calif.

The Aussie circled today as his return date after calling it quits at the midpoint of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic on Oct. 22 due to the flu. Sim is probably going to receive a medical extension for 2012 for missing all of August and September this year but confirmation of that won't be released for a few weeks. If he doesn't get one, he won't have any status on the PGA TOUR next season.

Michael Sim withdrew prior to his third round of of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic due to the flu.

Sim made the cut at 4-under 72-68=140 and was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 10:20 a.m. ET today. In what has been a forgettable season, he's dealt with a shoulder injury since July, not to mention his swing all year. The Aussie is almost assured of starting 2012 on a medical extension. In the meantime, his next appearance should be at the second stage of Q School on Nov. 16. Given his dominance on the Nationwide Tour just two years ago, it's incredible to think that he's fallen as far as he has in such a short period of time.

Michael Sim signed for a 1-under-par 36-34=70 following his opening round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Aussie has been sidelined since withdrawing from The Greenbrier Classic at the end of July due to a shoulder injury. He battled a sore shoulder (damaged tendon) in the first half of 2010 but recovered to finish 65th on the money list. Seemingly eons from that point in time, he's currently 225th in earnings right now but it's a safe assumption that he'll get a Minor Medical Extension in 2012 unless he has a specatular Fall Series. Not unexpectedly, he needed 30 putts despite hitting just 13 greens at TPC Summerlin today.

Michael Sim is listed in the published field of next week's Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

The Aussie has been out of action since withdrawing from The Greenbrier Classic due to a shoulder injury. He's had an absolutely terrible year, with only four paydays in 16 starts, none of which were top 50s. This will be his first appearance at the Timberlake.

Michael Sim before his second round of The Greenbrier Classic this morning, citing a shoulder injury.

Sim was scheduled to go off the first tee at 1:00 p.m. ET. He opened with a birdie-free, 38-37=75 on Thurday. The WD extends his string of starts without a top 50 to 16, and he's cashed only four times this season. It is unknown which shoulder is injured, but he missed a couple of months in the first half of 2010 due to a damaged tendon in his right shoulder. While we don't know the severity, given that he was compelled to withdraw today and that he's 228th in FedExCup Points, it's not a stretch to speculate that he may consider sitting out the rest of the season to heal. If he's able, he'll give it a go at next week's Reno-Tahoe Open, where he's listed in the published field.

Michael Sim withdrew prior to his tee time for the opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

He was scheduled to go off Redstone's 10th tee at 12:10 p.m. CT. The Aussie has had an extremely rough go of it this year, carding eight rounds of 74 or higher, and cashing just twice in six starts for $25,395. He missed the cut at Bay Hill last week after turning in a pair of 78s. If an explanation is released explaining today's decision, we will update you as always.

Eighteen-hole co-leader, Michael Sim, settled for a 2-over-par 39-33=72 in his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

After a sparkling bogey-free opening 66, the Aussie gave it all back at the driveable par-4 11th hole, his second of his second round. He rinsed a pair of tee balls and carded an eight. He found the water again off the tee at the par-3 17th and incurred a double bogey there. Overall, he hit just nine GIR, but those two crooked numbers bumped him well off the leaderboard. At 2-under 138, he's eight strokes off the clubhouse lead. The good news is that he's made his first cut in two months due to a shoulder injury.

Michael Sim shot a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the opening round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The Aussie was 2-under when darkness suspended play on Thursday, and he didn't miss a beat in his return this morning. Although he hit just 11 GIR, he tidied up nicely, requiring just 26 putts, including a nifty conversion for par from 20'3" at the 5th hole. He's one of the five clubhouse co-leaders.

Michael Sim signed for a 4-over-par 39-37=76 following his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

Sidelined since a last-place finish (by four strokes, no less) at the WGC-CA Championship due to a damaged tendon in his right shoulder, Sim came out predictably rusty today, hitting just seven greens in regulation. He managed just two birdies.

Michael Sim's agent, Bud Martin, told Golfweek.com that the Aussie hopes to compete in next week's Valero Texas Open.

"The plan is to play next week in Texas, but it’s kind of day-to-day," Martin said. "We’ll make that decision here in the next couple of days. A lot of it will have to do with his preparation in Arizona." Sim has been in his homeland for treatment for a damaged tendon on his right shoulder. He also received a cortisone shot for the injury. We'll find out this Friday afternoon if Sim is officially committed to next week's stop, which will be held for the first time at the Greg Norman-designed AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio.

Michael Sim is not listed in the published field of next week's PLAYERS.

And the wait continues. Due to a damaged tendon in his right shoulder, Sim hasn't teed it up since Doral in mid-March. He earned his exemption into THE PLAYERS by virtue of finishing first on the 2009 Nationwide Tour money list, but that berth does not trickle down with the withdrawal. Chad Collins, who finished second in earnings to Sim, starts the week as the second alternate.
