Mark O'Meara makes his way back to Augusta National for the Masters this week.

O'Meara has a very admirable 18 cuts made in 29 attempts at Augusta National. However, things have gone sour recently and he has missed his last seven cuts at ANGC. He has little or no fantasy value this week.

Mark O'Meara failed to recreate the magic at Muirfield in his second round of The Open Championship, settling for a 7-over-par 40-38=78.

After picking after the host course for a 67 on Thursday, the 56-year-old former Open champion split only four (of 14) fairways and hit eight greens in regulation today. He also needed 31 putts. O'Meara lone birdie occurred at the par-4 12th hole, but it was overshadowed by six bogey and a double. He's 3-over 145 through 36 holes, so he'll survive the cut.

Mark O'Meara opened The Open Championship with a 4-under-par 31-36=67 to finish just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

The 56-year-old missed only three (of 14) fairways and three greens in regulation at Muirfield today. He opened with five birdies on his first nine holes, including on both par 5s. After three bogey-5s coming in, O'Meara converted an eagle-3 at 17 before a near-birdie at 18 that just didn't drop, eventually leaving him with a tap-in par. His last top 25 in this tournament occurred at this course in 2002 (T22).

Mark O’Meara will make a rare start on the PGA TOUR at this week’s Shell Houston Open.

O’Meara focuses the majority of his time on the Champions Tour these days, finishing in a tie for sixth at last week’s Mississippi Gulf Resort Classic. This is a bit of a curious start, seeing as he hasn’t played this event since 1994 and never at the current venue of Redstone GC’s Tournament Course. He has little or no fantasy value this week.

Mark O'Meara has withdrawn from the Masters due to a rib injury.

Since the 55-year-old has been firmly entrenched on the Champions Tour for years, the only relevant news that relates to this injury is that his consecutive starts steak at the Masters ends at 27. He played in every edition from 1985-2011. We will leave him off our Injury Report.

Mark O'Meara crafted a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS, finishing two back of the clubhouse lead.

That's right. This is not a misprint. This is, indeed, 2011. The 54-year-old O'Meara hit 12 greens and took 24 putts, negotiating seven birdies against just one bogey in his first trip to TPC Sawgrass since missing the cut in 2003. This is his 24th appearance dating back to 1981. For the record, he has six top 10s and has never won the tournament. Among his highlights today were conversions of 20'7" and 10 yards (just off the green) at the third and 18th holes, respectively. He also rolled in a par save from 10'10" at the 14th. His last payday on the PGA TOUR was for a T70 at the British Open at Turnberry in 2009.

Mark O'Meara secured one of the six spots available in the U.S. Open sectional qualifier in Lake Forest, Illinois.

O'Meara shot 70-72=142 and will play in his first U.S. Open since 2003. He made the cut at this year's Buick Invitational, where he's competed 25 times. Hunter Haas (68-68=136) was the medalist in Lake Forest while D.A. Points, Ian Leggatt and Chris Kirk all scored 139 to qualify. Kane Hanson and Jonathan Turcott will decide who earns the final spot in a playoff on Tuesday morning. Notables failing to qualify include Arjun Atwal, Chris Riley, Colt Knost, Paul Stankowski, Kyle Reifers and Mike Small.

Mark O'Meara posted a 1-under 71 in the opening round of the Masters.

This was O'Meara's best round since a 70 in the second round in 2004. Today's tour included birdies at 11, 12 and 13. He's missed the last two cuts at Augusta National but is in prime position to end that mini-streak this week. However, only formats that include Champions Tour players should be paying attention.

Mark O'Meara won on Wednesday the traditional par-three contest at the Masters.

Luke Donald could have forced a playoff on the last hole, but a pulled teeshot gave O'Meara the victory with a score of 5-under-par for nine holes. There is a "jinx" that goes with the par-three championship, because no winner of the par-three event has ever gone on to win the Masters.

Mark O'Meara, who turned 50 on January 13th, does not plan to play the ATT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Though frequently referred to as the "King of Pebble Beach" because of his five wins, O'Meara will apparently skip the event after competing 26 straight years. Asked if he would ever play in the AT&T again, O'Meara said, "I don't think so. I'm done. Stick a fork in me." He will play the Masters and the British Open on his past-champion exemptions, but plans to devote most of his time to the Champions Tour.

They've been replaced by Cameron Beckman, Notah Begay, Jay Delsing, Garbriel Hjertstedt, Larry Mize, Dicky Pride, Chris Smith and Grant Waite, but none of them appear to be very strong fantasy options.
