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 Overton has withdrawn mid-tournament from seven of his last 153 events, often making him a risky pick in weekly leagues.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.

Jeff Overton signed for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 following his third round of the CIMB Classic.

Overton fanned on a golden opportunity to make considerable noise today, but he stumbled to three bogeys to all but eliminate the benefit of four birdies. At 8-under 208, he was the last of 13 to close out 54 holes inside the top 10. He's four strokes back of the overnight co-leaders and will now need to hit the ground running on Sunday if he's going to emerge with his first trophy on the PGA TOUR.

Jeff Overton backed up his openign 68 at the CIMB Classic with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round to post 7-under 137 at the halfway point, three shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He opened bogey-bogey at the par-5 10th and par-3 11th holes, but played out the string in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. Overton has 11 birdies on the week thus far, but only two on the par 5s, and both at No. 3.

Jeff Overton opened the CIMB Classic with a 4-under-par 31-37=68.

Overton has gone 13 consecutive starts without a top 30, in the process drifting to 257th in the Official World Golf Ranking. He remains a non-winner on the PGA TOUR and seems poised for the label of underachiever despite a Ryder Cup appearance. Now 31 years of age and coming off his second straight season outside the top 90 in the FedExCup standings, he's been a tease for way too long in fantasy formats. Of course, golf is wonderful since it takes only one week to change a career. Thus far in Kuala Lumpur, he's converted six birdies against two bogeys and sits three strokes off the overnight lead.

Jeff Overton caught fire to end his third round of the Open, signing for a 5-under-par 35-32=67.

Overton was an afterthought for much of his round, trading three birdies for two bogeys for his first 15 holes. All that changed on the last three holes, when he circled birdies on the par-5 16th and par-4 17th before holing out for eagle from a greenside bunker on the par-5 18th. In addition to the 34-yard eagle, Overton also converted a 14'6" birdie on the par-4 fourth hole. He is now the clubhouse leader at 8-under 208.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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).
