Josh Teater made one of his two cuts to kick off the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season, tying for 35th at the Sanderson Farms Championship.
Teater is playing with conditional status in 2014-15, barely sneaking in at 148th in the 2013-14 FedExCup standings. Those ranked 126-150 are awarded that status. The Kentucky native secured 17 of 26 cuts last season, but managed to crack the top 25 on just two occasions. At 179th in this season's FEC standings, he must make the most of his opportunities if he is to maintain or improve his status for next season. Thu, Nov 27, 2014 04:05:00 PM

Josh Teater has been added to the published field of this week's McGladrey Classic.

He started the week as the ninth alternate, but gained entry when Trevor Immelman withdrew. Teater finished 2013-14 ranked 148th in the FedExCup standings, so he has conditional status, but this week's start has to feel like a welcome surprise. One new wrinkle this season is that the guys in the conditional status category are going to be reshuffled periodically, so he can make a move from the back end with a fast start. Teater tied for 32nd in his last visit to Seaside in 2011.

Josh Teater could only manage a 1-over-par 37-34=71 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to tie for 38th at 7-under 273.

Teater's three bogeys outpaced his two birdies on his walk around Sedgefield CC, but that was only part of the story. Entering the week 153rd in the FedExCup standings, he bought himself a bit of a safety net ahead of the Tour Finals by moving to 148th. All of those ending the year between 126th and 150th in the FEC standings are rewarded with conditional status on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR.

Josh Teater needs to up his game at the RBC Canadian Open this week in hopes of securing his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card.

Teater enters Royal Montreal ranked 145th in the FedExCup standings and likely has just two starts after this one to crack the top 125. His only guaranteed starts the rest of the way would be the Barracuda Championship and the Wyndham Championship. Absent a top-20 finish all season, he needs a season-best week in the very near future or it will be off to the Tour Finals.

Josh Teater is searching for a spark as he tees it up at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Teater has missed eight cuts on the season, but just one in his past seven events. The weekend tee times haven't been yielding any high finishes, however, with eight of his last nine finishes falling outside of the top 50. His last top 10 came over a year ago at the Crowne Plaza Invitational. The lack of top 50 finishes makes it easy for gamers to safely ignore Teater for the time being.

Josh Teater makes his way back to the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial after tying for seventh a year ago.

All told, Teater has secured three of his four cuts at Colonial CC, with a solid T16 in 2011 supporting his top 10 last time around. At 135th in the current FedExCup standings, he could use a third top-20 finish here in the worst way. The short game has been a challenge, entering the week 132nd in scrambling.

Thanks in part to a hole-in-one on the par-3 17th in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Josh Teater survived the cut on the number at 2-under-par 73-69=142.

Teater jarred his tee ball from 184 yards on the hole. It's the fifth ace on the PGA TOUR this season and the first since Charley Hoffman's 1 on the third hole of Torrey Pines South in his final round of the Farmers Insurance Open in late January. Teater also rolled in birdies today from 11 feet, 28'6" and 15'3" at Nos. 2, 3 and 5, respectively, to cancel a trio of bogeys. He's one of 18 tied for 67th place at the halfway point. So, since 86 golfers survived the cut, another cut of low 70 and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes.

Josh Teater site 3-under-par 71-70=141 through two rounds of the Valero Texas Open.

All of his 18 conversions in the second round began their roll from inside nine feet. Four went for birdies while two dropped in for bogeys. He's five strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Teater entered the week ranked 113th in FedExCup points and has finished no better than T23 (Mayakoba) in his last 21 starts. That's a stretch of 10 months of competition.

Josh Teater will tee it up for the fourth time in the Valero Texas Open.

Teater is currently 113th in the FedExCup standings, having made seven of 12 cuts with a pair of top 25s. He tied for 25th in the Valspar Championship in his last start, so things could be looking up. In three previous trips to TPC San Antonio, he's miss the cut twice and tied for 34th in 2010. He ranks inside the top 90 in driving accuracy, driving distance, GIR and strokes gained-putting.

Josh Teater is scheduled to make his fifth consecutive appearance at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

TPC Scottsdale hasn't been the site of many good memories for the 34-year-old with no better than a T40 (2012) among two paydays. He's also been scuffling along for about eight months now. Since a T7 at Colonial in late May, he's wrangled just one top 30 in 16 starts (T23, Mayakoba).

Josh Teater has made each of his four cuts to start the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season.

The Kentucky native finished inside the top 50 only once in that span, tying for 23rd in the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. His T2 at Torrey Pines last year was the best finish of his PGA TOUR career, so his return to the Farmers Insurance Open in 2014 should be an excellent litmus test for his form. His last top 10 was at T7 at Colonial in May of 2013.

Josh Teater pured a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Teater went 4-for-4 in scrambling and picked off three birdies, two of which on par 5s. He split 11 (of 14) fairways and would sign his card sitting three strokes off the clubhouse lead. He's cashed in 10 of his last 12 starts, but none have resulted in a top 45.

Josh Teater sits 1-under-par 69-69-74=212 through 54 holes of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Teater has proven to be streaky in his four seasons on the PGA TOUR. This consistency includes droughts of which he's in one right now. After sharing seventh place Colonial in late May and before surviving the cut in Vegas this week, he went 8-for-10 but finished no better than T47 (at the PGA Championship). Thus far at TPC Summerlin, he's circled an eagle and 10 birdies, but succumbed to three bogeys and four doubles. Today's round featured three birdies and three doubles. Stick with on the back end of long-term rosters because he's just not doing enough in real time to demand other attention. At the same time, we have to expect that he'll find another groove.

Josh Teater enters the Deutsche Bank Championship 72nd in the FedExCup standings.

Teater tied for 72nd at The Barclays last week, but a similar effort this week won't get the job done in terms of advancing to the BMW Championship. In three previous trips to TPC Boston, he has missed one cut and done no better than a T45 in 2010. His last top 10 on TOUR at Colonial in May.

Overnight leader Josh Teater followed his opening 15 points at the Reno-Tahoe Open with zero points in the second round.

Probably most frustrating is that he was never in negative numbers today. Teater had four points after five holes, returned to zero by the turn, and then wiped off a birdie at the par-5 second hole with bogeys at 3 and 5. He reached the halfway point with 15 points to sit three adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
