Jeff Overton opens up his 2015 FedEx Cup Playoffs at this week's Barclays.
The Indiana Hoosier heads into the stretch run ranked 125th in the FEC standings. He made it this far by chipping away, one FEC point at a time. Other than a T7 at the Honda Classic which yielded 83 points, his highest return was 43 points at the Memorial. Overton brings a 16-for-29 record into Plainfield Country Club this week, and can be safely overlooked by gamers. Aug 24 - 8:52 PM

Jeff Overton carded a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's opening round of the Quicken Loans National, checking up two strokes off adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

Overton has submitted one of the most underwhelming successful seasons to date. He's 109th in the FedExCup standings thanks to 15 paydays, only one of which is a top 25 (T7, Honda). Yet, he's 147th on the money list, which used to be the only measure of success on the PGA TOUR. Today's aggregate matches his season low. While that's impressive on one level, that he hadn't beaten 65 in 82 prior rounds puts a different spin on things. The 32-year-old sandwiched a lone bogey at the par-4 10th hole with seven birdies, three of which from outside 12 feet. His longest stretched 41'1" at the par-5 eight hole. Overton also salvaged par with a hole-out from the rough 10 yards away at the par-4 12th.

Jeff Overton has withdrawn from this week's Barbasol Championship.

Despite a smattering of red numbers over the last few months, Overton hasn't found a top 25 since a T7 at The Honda Classic. Winless in 262 PGA TOUR starts and a repeat offender in terms of questionable public behavior, it's a constant wonder if the 32-year-old will ever catch up to the expectations with which he left Indiana University 10 years ago. He's currently 108th in the FedExCup standings and likely to retain his card as he continues to aggravate faithful gamers.
Jul 13 - 12:31 PM

Jeff Overton has many fond memories to cite as he readies for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Overton finished runner-up here in the inaugural 2010 running. He fell victim to Stuart Appleby's final-round 59, losing by one stroke when all was said and done. Regardless, the Indiana Hoosier has to think fondly of this venue as it's still one of the closest chances he's gotten to victory on the PGA TOUR. If you're into a redemption story, then Overton should certainly warrant consideration this week.
Jul 1 - 8:10 PM

Jeff Overton crafted a 4-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, reaching the midpoint in 5-under 134, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Overton hasn't been relevant most of the season with only one top 25, but he's 98th in the FedExCup standings. He's poised to pad his record if not finally pick off his first PGA TOUR win. This is his 257th career start. He connected for an eagle-3 and four birdies at TPC Four Seasons today. They covered bogey-5s at Nos. 15 and 18. Yes, he birdie the modified par-3 14th hole.
May 29 - 4:23 PM

Jeff Overton navigated TPC Sawgrass to the tune of a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round.

When he signed his card, he held a share of the very early clubhouse lead. It helps considerably that he went out in the first threesome off the first tee. Overton went 4-for-4 in scrambling and buried only one try from outside nine feet. That was a walk-off par from 16 feet at the par-4 18th hole. He cashed in five of seven previous appearances, but has yet to find a top 25, instead settling for a trio os T26s.
May 7 - 12:17 PM

Jeff Overton missed the cut in his RBC Heritage debut in 2012 and makes his return to Harbour Town Golf Links slotted 80th in the FedExCup standings.

On the season, Overton's T7 at Honda remains his only top 25 in 14 events. In his last two starts on the Texas swing, he finished T50-MC. The 31-year-old ranks 45th on TOUR in scoring average and 73rd in par-4 scoring, which conceivably could give him a chance at the weekend, but 188th in total driving will make it an uphill battle from the get-go.
Apr 14 - 5:18 PM

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Overton withdrew during his second round of this tournament last year with his recurring wrist injury. He's cashed just twice in five trips with no better with a T47 in 2009, so gamers won't miss him. He's cashed nine of 12 times this season, but only once for a top 25 (T7, Honda), so his relatively lofty position at 64th in the FedExCup standings is a bit deceiving.
Mar 16 - 11:18 AM

Jeff Overton concluded The Honda Classic in 1-under-par 33-36=69.

Overton was due for a good week. He hadn't finished better than T29 at Mayakoba in nine starts this season, but sat T8 at last check at PGA National. While he bogeyed both holes where he didn't find the green in regulation in his finale, he compensated with three birdies, including a round-long conversion from 18'10" at the par-4 second hole. He went in the books at 3-under 277. At the time he signed his card, he co-led the field in GIR with 51.
Mar 2 - 10:12 AM

Jeff Overton submitted a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The Honda Classic and is in the mix for a top 10 at 2-under 208.

Overton traded three birdies for two bogey on his navigation of PGA National's Champion Course. His first two birdies were of note, holing a 13'6" birdie from just off the green at the par-5 third hole and a 10'8" birdie at the par-3 fifth hole. He ended his round with a 9'4" birdie at the par-5 18th. It's been a tough 2014-15 PGA TOUR season for the veteran. Not only has he failed to record a top-10 finish, he hasn't even cracked the top 25 to this point. That certainly looks subject to change this week.
Mar 1 - 3:15 PM

Jeff Overton arrived at the halfway point of The Honda Classic in 1-under-par 71-68=139 and sits five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Overton missed the cut in his last two starts, failing to break par in all four of those rounds. He didn't secure today's red number at PGA National until closing birdie-birdie with conversions from seven-and-a-half feet at both the 17th and 18th holes. His longest conversion ran 11'1" at the par-4 first. Overton arrived in south Florida slotted 87th in the FedExCup standings without the benefit of a top 25.
Feb 28 - 10:13 AM

Jeff Overton has withdrawn from this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Overton failed to break par at TPC Scottsdale and missed the cut by three strokes. His success at Torrey Pines isn't much better. His best finish among two paydays in five tries is a T60 in 2013. That may help explain why he's taking the week off.
Feb 2 - 11:39 AM

Jeff Overton will take a look at his old yardage books as he prepares for his ninth start at the Sony Open.

Overton has back-to-back top 10s at this event heading into the week. He is 6-for-8 overall at Waialae Country Club. The Indiana product has nothing to complain about early in the season, starting four-for-five while ranking 59th in the FedExCup standings. With red numbers in 10 of his last 12 Waialae rounds, gamers should take a peek at Overton this week.
Jan 14 - 8:53 AM

Jeff Overton kicked off his 2014-15 PGA TOUR season with a 4-for-5 Fall Series, and currently sits in 55th position of the FedExCup standings entering the holiday break.

Overton rattled off four top 50s early in the season, with his best coming in the form of a T29 in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. The issue with the Indiana Hoosier product remains his plethora of injury concerns. Overton has withdrawn mid-tournament from seven of his last 153 events, often making him a risky pick in weekly leagues.

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

This isn't too surprising. Overton played in each of the first four tournaments, the last of which on the other side of the world, of course. He cashed in three, but couldn't log a top 30, thus extending a drought without one to 14 consecutive starts. NOTE: Paul Goydos also withdrew as an alternate.
