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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
