Jeff Overton begins the Deutsche Bank Championship ranked 83rd in the FedExCup standings.
Overton is a veteran of seven prior trips to TPC Boston, making five cuts and topping out with a T7 in his last trip back in 2012. While he's quietly made his last six cuts, none of them have resulted in a top-30 finish. It stands to reason that he will need his best result since the fourth-place finish at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans if he is to advance to the BMW Championship. Aug 27 - 3:23 PM

Jeff Overton totaled 13 points in his second round of the Barracuda Championship.

He shot 5-under-par 33-34=67 with five birdies and an eagle-3 at the 18th hole where he concluded the round. (It avenged a double bogey on the hole in the opening round.) Overton also squared two bogeys coming in. With 20 points, he owned sole but temporary possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. With only one top-35 finish in his last 14 starts, there's no way that gamers should have expected this kind of success, but the Modified Stableford scoring system tends to allow for some randomness on the leaderboard. It's all about getting hot at the right time.

Jeff Overton shot a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

This is his first live action since a T53 in Memphis seven weeks ago. No official word has surfaced as to why he's been out, but it didn't necessarily hamper his style today. He went 2-for-12 in birdie chances while suffering just one bogey when he found a greenside bunker at the par-3 fifth hole. Overton is still chasing his first PGA TOUR victory despite 160 paydays.

Jeff Overton is listed in the published field of next week's RBC Canadian Open.

Last week's early withdrawal from the John Deere Classic was his seventh of the season. Whether he's still stymied by a wrist injury or if there's another reason why he's been in and out of tournament all year, Overton is not a reliable short-term own. However, he'll qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs (currently 82nd in points) during which all bets will probably be off, too.
Jul 18 - 7:07 PM

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's John Deere Classic.

To this we are accustomed. It's the seventh time in 2014 alone that he's withdrawn after the commitment deadline and before his tee time in the opening round. He also withdrew during the Arnold Palmer Invitational due to a chronic wrist injury. The good news is that he can't pull out of next week's Open Championship because he didn't qualify.
Jul 9 - 3:15 PM

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Overton has been in and out of fields all year primarily due to a lingering wrist injury, so consider this as the status quo until further notice. He's 74th in the FedExCup standings.
Jun 30 - 6:02 PM

Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Memorial.

While this is his fifth early withdrawal of 2014, this will be his first break in six weeks. Overton sits comfortably at 59th in the FedExCup standings.
May 27 - 10:58 AM

Jeff Overton stumbled to an 11-over-par 37-46=83 in the third round of THE PLAYERS and will miss the 54-hole cut at TPC Sawgrass.

Overton ends the tournament at 9-over 225, and the axe fell at 3-over 219. Joining Overton on the bench for the final round are Ernie Els (219), Seung-yul Noh (219), John Huh (219), John Merrick (220), Jonas Blixt (220), Stuart Appleby (221), John Rollins (221), Rickie Fowler (221), Chris Stroud (222) and Joost Luiten (222).

Jeff Overton signed for a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to finish alone in fourth at 16-under 272.

Overton picked up three birdies without a blemish on his first 10 holes and quickly became part of the final-round narrative. From there, he found just two bogeys to just one birdie the rest of the way. Though the putter looked questionable at times late, it wasn't all bad with the flat stick, as two of his four circles came from outside 19 feet. He finished the week third in strokes gained and fourth in putting average. He remains one of the better players on the PGA TOUR without a win.
Apr 27 - 6:26 PM

Jeff Overton conjured a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and enters the finale inside the top five at 14-under 202.

Overton picked up six birdies, giving back just one bogey on his third lap around TPC Louisiana. Three of those birdies fell from between 13 and 17 feet, so the flat stick was working on the mid-range putts. Consequently, he ranks inside the top five in both strokes gained-putting and putting average. It's been eight starts since his last top-10 finish on the PGA TOUR, coming at the Sony Open as a solo seventh.
Apr 26 - 5:34 PM

Jeff Overton spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 35-33=68 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach the midpoint in 9-under 135, six stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Overton went 5-for-5 in scrambling at TPC Louisiana today and found four birdies. The set included a pair of gems from 22'6" and 29'10" at Nos. 18 and 3, respectively. Given his recent wrist injury, gamers are right to continue to hold their breath, so consider anything positive this week as found success.
Apr 25 - 6:09 PM

Jeff Overton turned in a 5-under-par 32-35=67 for his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Overton has been dealing with a wrist injury for most of 2014, so it's no surprise that today's aggregate is his lowest in over three months. In fact, it's just his fourth red number in his last 16 rounds. He went 6-for-7 in scrambling and circled six birdies, including rolls from 11'4" and 31 feet at the eighth and 14th holes, respectively. However, his most impressive conversion came courtesy of a 10-yard hole-out from off the green for par at 12. He signed his card sitting one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

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.
Mar 27 - 5:33 PM

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.
