David Mathis navigated the AT&T Canyons Course at TPC San Antonio with a 6-under-par 34-32=66, joining Robby Orman, Paul McConnell, and Brett Wetterich as the four golfers to open qualify for this week's Valero Texas Open.
Mathis circled eight birdies on the day, offset by just a pair of squares. The two-time Tour winner will be making his first PGA TOUR appearance since a missed cut at last year's RBC Canadian Open. He is 1-for-4 at the VTO, with that one going for a T18 in 2012. McConnell (5-under 67) may be familiar as the UTA alum recently Monday qualified for the Shell Houston Open where he went on to record rounds of 75-80 on his way toward a missed cut. The 2006 Byron Nelson winner, Brett Wetterich (5-under 67) will be making his first trip back to this event since the 2012 edition. He recorded a T13 at JW Marriott TPC San Antonio during its 2010 course debut at the VTO. Lastly, the TCU product Robby Orman (6-under 66) has no PGA TOUR action on his resume so this will be a big week for his friends and family. Mon, Apr 18, 2016 10:27:00 PM

David Mathis could only muster three points in the final round of the Reno-Tahoe Open, sharing fifth place with Dicky Pride.

Mathis had three birdies to just one bogey over his first six holes, but couldn't find another red number the rest of the way. In fact, he gave back two points with a pair of bogeys. This easily eclipses his T31 at the RBC Canadian Open as his best finish of the year, but he's going to need a big week at the Wyndham Championship assuming he is in the field if he is to crack the top 125 of the FedExCup standings to earn a spot in the Playoffs and a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.

David Mathis corralled 12 points during his third round of the Reno-Tahoe Open and heads to the finale with 29 in tow.

Mathis finished his day solo third in real time, and that had him projected 155th in the FedExCup standings. Essentially, he needs to find a way to win this week if he wants to ensure his 2013-14 PGA TOUR card and a spot in the Playoffs. Four birdies and an eagle to just one bogey is an excellent formula for success in the Modified Stableford scoring system in place at Montreux GC this week.

David Mathis backed up his 10-point opener at the Reno-Tahoe Open with seven points today to reach the midpoint with 17, one off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Mathis added five birdies today. Three bogeys scar his card, but he's in great position entering the weekend. He's also guaranteed to survive his fourth consecutive cut to set a personal high for the year.

David Mathis posted 10 points in his opening round of the Reno-Tahoe Open.

The journeyman entered the week ranked 179th in FedExCup points and 186th in earnings. He's been fully exempt off the money list for two straight seasons, finishing 118th in 2011 and 120th last year. He needed 11th-hour sprints to retain his card both times, so given his current position on both angles at playing privileges in 2013-14, he's in the heart of his comfort zone. Today at Montreux, he rolled in six birdies against two bogeys and finished five points adrift of the clubhouse lead.

David Mathis is 7-under-par 70-67=137 through two rounds of the Sanderson Farms Championship, three strokes off the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

At the time he signed his card today, he led the field with 13 birdies. It's a far cry from the season he's registered so far, cashing in eight of 20 starts but failing to post a top 40. He arrived at Annandale ranked 190th in FedExCup points.

David Mathis peeked his head up in the opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, spinning a 4-under-par 30-36=66.

It's been a terrible year for the veteran up until this point, making just seven of 18 cuts and missing 10 of his last 13. For 12 holes, none of that mattered. He opened his day at The Old White TPC with five birdies on his first 12 holes, then gave back his only stroke of the day at the par-3 15th. Ball-striking was the key, splitting every fairways and missing just one GIR.

David Mathis will play his fourth FedEx St. Jude Classic with a track record for success at TPC Southwind already established.

Mathis missed the cut here way back in 1998, but tied for 23rd in 2009 and shared 13th in 2011. A superstitious person would notice that the odd years are faring much better than the evens. That’s about all he has going for him, as he’s missed nine of his last 10 cuts.

David Mathis enters the RBC Heritage having missed his last five cuts this season.

It’s been a struggle for Mathis, last cashing at Riviera to close out his West Coast Swing. His only trip to Harbour Town was last season, and he missed the cut. He does not rank inside the top 100 in any major PGA TOUR statistical category.

David Mathis has played seven events in 2013 ahead of his stop at the Tampa Bay Championship, but has yet to make his mark on the season.

He's secured paychecks on four occasions, with a T41 at the Sony Open the highlight. His history at Innisbrook is equally spotty, with a T46 and a missed cut on his record. Reading the tea leaves, he's not likely to be a worthy investment this week.

David Mathis enters the Waste Management Phoenix Open with only two competitive rounds under his belt at TPC Scottsdale.

As that would suggest, he missed the cut and failed to even scratch out an even-par round. He's trending in the wrong direction headed into this week. An opening T41 at the Sony Open was followed by a T72 at the Humana and a missed cut at Torrey Pines. On the bright side he missed his first seven cuts of 2012, so he's already trending for an improved 2013.

David Mathis made just 12 of 29 cuts, but finished inside the top 25 on eight of those occasions.

It was looking like a disaster year for Mathis, missing 10 of his first 11 cuts. He flipped a switch at the Valero Texas Open in April, finishing no higher than 18th and no lower than 10th in four of his next five starts. He locked up his card with a steady Fall Series that culminated with a tie for 10th at The McGladrey Classic. Some of his spotty play can be explained by his lack of length, rendering him 176th in driving distance and limiting the courses where he can factor.

David Mathis entered the week 122nd on the PGA TOUR money list and turned in a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The McGladrey Classic to lock up his 2013 TOUR card.

Mathis finishes the week at 10-under 270, and has a hole-out eagle from 155 yards on the par-4 11th to thank for that. He split every fairway on Sea Island's Seaside Course in the final round, while landing 14 GIR. As it stands, it looks like he will net his second top 10, and eighth top 25, of the season.

David Mathis posted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the Open, finishing three strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Mathis entered the week ranked 124th on the money list and just $3,801 clear of Rod Pampling at No. 126, so the pressure is felt greatest on these guys on the bubble to earn fully exempt status in 2013. Mathis split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens today en route to five birdies. The set including a 13-footer at the 10th hole and conversions from 12'9" and 17'5" at Nos. 17 and 5, respectively.

David Mathis crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, finishing one stroke back of the clubhouse lead.

Despite one top 10 and five more top 25s, Mathis arrived in Greensboro ranked 136th in FedExCup points, so he needs a solid week to qualify for next week's Playoffs. Three more rounds like today's will punch his ticket to The Barclays. He hit only 11 greens in regulation but required just 22 putts and saved par all seven times. Four of his seven birdies disappeared from beyond 10 feet, including a putt from 20'9" at hte 13th hole and a 31-yard hole-out from just off the green at 14. He also poured in a par save from 12'1" at the 10th. At the time he signed his card, he led the field in Strokes Gained-Putting with a clip north of 4.090.
