Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.
This is his fourth early withdrawal in 2014. He also withdrew after 29 holes of the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a wrist injury. Overton's only payday in his last four was a T37 in Houston. Consider him as a long-term investment only since he's 64th in the FedExCup standings, but don't hesitate to bail for a hotter player. Apr 14 - 10:43 AM

Jeff Overton blew up for a 4-over-par 39-37=76 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

He shared on Twitter on Tuesday that he was feeling better, but today's scorecard doesn't reflect it even though TPC San Antonio is no pushover. Overton split six (of 14) fairways and hit only nine greens in regulation en route to six bogeys against two birdies. It's his seventh consecutive round over par and ninth in his last 10.

Jeff Overton alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's raring to go for both events in Texas.

Overton wrote, "My wrist is feeling much better this week - need it to hold up for the two week Texas swing at the @valerotxopen and the @ShellHouOpen!" He walked off Bay Hill after 29 holes last week with a wrist injury. He's in a 2-for-5 slump with zero top 35s. Despite a T7 at TPC San Antonio last year, he's a big risk this week.

Jeff Overton withdrew from the Arnold Palmer Invitational during his second round, citing a wrist injury.

Overton was 4-over-par through 11 holes and 7-over through 29 when he called it quits. He wrangled five birdies at Bay Hill, but was stung by four bogeys and four doubles. It doesn't seem terribly surprising that he withdrew because he had backed out early on commitment to the Farmers, Northern Trust and Puerto Rico in recent weeks. While he's competing elsewhere in between, he may have been on a week-to-week basis if his wrist has been an issue throughout. For the record, we don't know which wrist is bothering him. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Valero Texas Open where he shared seventh place last year.

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Puerto Rico Open.

He was an early withdrawal at the Northern Trust Open three weeks ago, too, but tied for 67th at The Honda Classic on Sunday. He's 41st in the FedExCup standings and well on his way to a very good season.
Mar 3 - 10:56 AM

Jeff Overton was the first man out in the third round of The Honda Classic, signing for a 1-over-par 35-36=71.

Overton drew the short straw, forced to play his round without a professional partner. He circled four birdies, which were more than erased by his five bogeys. With a 54-hole cut left to be sorted out at day's end, he will now wait and see if his 1-over 211 is good enough for a Sunday tee time.
Mar 1 - 10:29 AM

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Northern Trust Open.

There's a pattern developing. He pulled out early at the Farmers three weeks ago, too. In the interim, he missed the cut at the WM Phoenix Open. He's 29th in FedExCup points, so he can afford the weeks off, but the frequency of these WDs is mildly concerning. Since he won't qualify for next week's World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship, we won't see him again until the Florida Swing at the earliest.

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

With nothing better than a T60 among only two paydays in five tries at Torrey Pines, this is probably a sensible decision. He's also been busy early this season what with seven starts en route to two top 10s and another three top 25s. Following a T38 at the Humana Challenge, Overton sits 18th in FedExCup points.
Jan 20 - 3:09 PM

Jeff Overton enjoyed a share of the lead on the back nine in the final round of the Sony Open, but his 2-under-par 32-36=68 was only good enough for a seventh-place finish at 11-under 269.

Overton went on a birdie binge in the middle of his round on Waialae Country Club, circling four birdies in succession beginning with the par-3 seventh. Seemingly feeling the pressure of being tied for the lead, he went on to bogey three of his next seven holes. He then tapped in for an easy birdie on the par-5 18th. There's a reason he's been on TOUR as long as he has without a victory, and that showed up on the back nine. His miss was a pull off the tee, and he lacked confidence with the putter down the stretch.
Jan 12 - 9:51 PM

Jeff Overton spun a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Sony Open and joins his playing partner, Robert Allenby, in the clubhouse lead at 9-under 201.

Overton's day was without a blemish, circling five birdies on his lap around Waialae Country Club. It's become a farily well-known fact at this point, but the former Ryder Cup player has yet to win on the PGA TOUR. With plenty of players within several shots of the lead at the time of his posting, it's clear that the finale will be a shootout and the low man of the final few groups will likely win. It could be that type of go-low mindset that will produce his breakthrough title.
Jan 11 - 5:56 PM

Jeff Overton has blossomed into one of the best players on the PGA TOUR without a victory to his name.

It's a bit of a backhanded compliment, as he's teed it up in 218 events with seven top-three finishes, but has yet to close the deal. He's already amassed four top 25s, including a T9 at TPC Summerlin, to begin his 2013-14 campaign. Most say it's only a matter of time before he hoists a trophy, but that narrative has repeated for a few years.

Jeff Overton turned in a 3-under-par 33-35=68 for his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Overton hasn't played El Camaleón in competition since his sophomore season on the PGA TOUR in 2007; he missed the cut. In his two-day launch this week, he split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and circled four birdies to erase a lone bogey at the par-4 first hole, his 10th of the round. He settled in three strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Jeff Overton has been added to the published field of this week's CIMB Classic.

The alternates for this 78-man, no-cut event in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, aren't published, but that's because it could be confusing to the reader since only golfers off the Asian Tour's Order of Merit populate that list after 9:00 a.m. local time today. The timing of Jason Kokrak's withdrawal must have occurred before this cutoff. Golf Channel had coverage of it on the weekend, while Overton wrote the following on Twitter overnight last night: "Got a last second invite to Malaysia! 24 hours of travel should make for at least 3 naps and 3 movies." It was only a matter of time before he was going to serve as an alternate into a field, but that it occurs so soon after his rant on Twitter for not being granted an exemption into the PGA Championship is mildly amusing.

Jeff Overton overcame an early mess to post a 1-under-par 37-33=70 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, sharing ninth at 15-under 269.

Overton began his day with a bogey on the par-4 second and a double bogey on the par-4 third, and was 3-over on his round through 13 holes. He caught fire late with birdies on the par-3 14th and par-5 16th surrounding a chip-in eagle from 20 yards on the par-4 15th. After tying for 16th at the Open last week, this has been an encouraging start to the season.

Jeff Overton enjoyed a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-35=68 for his third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

He went 4-for-4 in scrambling but circled only three birdies, the longest of which stretching 13'10" at the par-4 fourth hole. He missed only one chance inside 11 feet -- from 9'7" at No. 9 -- so it wasn't like he left any chances out there. He just didn't attack the flags, but at 14-under 199 after three rounds, he's five strokes off the overnight lead.
