Steve Wheatcroft crafted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to become the third with a piece of the clubhouse lead.

Wheatcroft opened the season with three paydays in four starts, but hasn't cracked a top 60. After today's spotless round, it would be a tremendous upset if he didn't end that drought in México. And it was an impressive bit of scrambling that shouldn't go overlooked. He split only half of the 14 fairways and went 7-for-7 in scrambling. Wheatcroft picked off six birdies along the way, but none on the par 5s.

Steve Wheatcroft turned in a 3-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, finishing two strokes off the pace of the clubhouse tri-leaders.

The journeyman is 2-for-2 this season, but he failed to crack the top 60 in either, so today's success may prove to be an anomaly. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation at Seaside. Wheatcroft's highlight occurred at the par-5 15th hole where he banged home an eagle from 48'3", but he also enjoyed two birdies, including a beaut from 22'9" at the par-4 fifth. He incurred just one bogey (at No. 4).

Steve Wheatcroft played his way back onto the PGA TOUR as a member of the 2014 Tour Finals graduating class.

The Indiana Hoosier grad experienced an up-and-down season, even contemplated a career change before taking home the Albertsons Boise Open hardware. The win catapulted him up the Tour Money List, where he finished 19th by season's end. Wheatcroft owns a career cut made percentage of 37% (29-for-79) on the PGA TOUR, which leaves a lot to be desired for gamers.

Steve Wheatcroft crafted a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open and survived a playoff against Steven Alker with a birdie on the first playoff hole for his second Tour win.

Wheatcroft circled six birdies and an eagle and squared two bogeys on his final navigation of Hillcrest CC. For the tournament, he bagged 27 birdies which was tops for the week and a big reason why he reached 24-under 260. He also ranked first in putting average, with a 1.566 clip. He entered the week 89th on the Tour money list, but jumps to 11th and virtually guarantees his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card with this victory.

Steve Wheatcroft turned in a 4-under-par 33-35=68 at The Club at Comanche Trace in today's open qualifier in Kerrville, Tex. for the Valero Texas Open, falling two strokes outside the number to join a playoff for the final three berths into the tournament proper.

Wheatcroft famously parlayed his successful run at last week's four-spotter into outright possession of the 36-hole lead of the Shell Houston Open before fading into a share of 22nd place. He buried six birdies today but got clipped by a couple of bogeys. Other notables that failed to qualify include: 67--Mark Anderson ... 68--Tom Byrum; Brad Lardon ... 69--Will MacKenzie; Mike Standly; Cliff Kresge; Edward Loar ... 70--Paul Stankowski; Bubba Dickerson; Will Strickler ... 72--Omar Uresti; Craig Kanada ... 73--Eric Axley ... 74--Frank Lickliter II ... 76--David Ogrin.

Steve Wheatcroft stumbled to an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of the Shell Houston Open, dropping to 10-under 206 and one behind the leaders.

The 36-hole leader is one of 15 players within two strokes of the lead with just 18 holes to play. He jumped out to a solid start, circling birdies from 2'8" and 10'9" on the second and fourth holes respectively. He gave back bogeys at the par-3 ninth after flubbing a chip and the par-4 10th after a drive in the hazard, but did a nice job minimizing the damage and preventing the numbers from being a little larger in both cases. He added a third birdie from 2'8" at the par-51 13th, but made a bogey on the 18th after several poor shots.

Steve Wheatcroft circled eight birdies en route to a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Shell Houston Open, finishing three strokes adrift of the overnight lead.

The former PGA TOUR member capitalized on his berth into the tournament via Monday's four-spotter. He hit 12 greens and suffered three bogeys but more than made up for it everywhere else. His first blast of birdies occurred consecutive on holes 4-8. That run included four conversions from beyond 11 feet, including an 18-yard hole-out from off the green at 5 and a conventional roll from 18'6" at 6. After pars on the swing holes, he drilled another biride at 11 from 32'11", and then chased it with yet another from 22'9" at 12. His last birdie measured 6'2" at the par-5 13th. Wheatcroft is no stranger to going low. He holds the Tour record for low aggregate over 72 holes, carding 29-under 66-60-65-64=255 at the 2011 Melwood Prince George's County Open.

Steve Wheatcroft looks to build on a made cut at the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open at this week’s Open.

His tie for 36th at TPC Summerlin last week was his second-best finish of the season, bested only by a tie for 22nd at The Greenbrier. With finishes like that, it’s not hard to imagine that he ranks a meager 194th on the money list and is staring a return trip to Q School in the face if he doesn’t get things moving quickly. Considering he ranks 36th in GIR and 90th in Strokes Gained-Putting, there is always a chance for things to fall into place. The par 5s have been his downfall, ranking 177th in Par 5 Birdie or Better Leaders.

Steve Wheatcroft opened the RBC Canadian Open with a 1-over-par 39-32=71.

Forced to withdraw during his second round of last week's True South Classic due to heat exhaustion, he stumbled out of the gate today, carding a birdie-free first nine that included a triple bogey-7 on the 12th hole. However, Wheatcroft righted the ship and converted four birdies coming in, including a round-long gem from 18'9" at the first hole.

Steve Wheatcroft withdrew during his second round of the True South Classic due to heat exhaustion.

Wheatcroft hit his approach short at the par-4 third hole, and then walked off. He was 1-over-par on the round and 3-under for the tournament at the time.

The second round of The Greenbrier Classic was suspended at 8:45 p.m. ET for darkness.

Try as they might, 12 golfers failed to complete play today. A weather delay of two hours and 25 minutes prevented it. Steve Wheatcroft arrived at The Old White TPC riding an 0-for-6 skid, but he's 2-under with one hole to play. He'll return for the restart at 8:30 a.m. on Saturday. He was birdie-free 2-over before flipping on the jets after the turn, circling four birdies in a five-hole stretch. It included a birdie putt form 11'7" at the 10th hole and a 10-yard hole-out from in front of the green at 11. He'll need no worse than a bogey-4 at the closing hole to earn a paycheck as the cut will fall at 1-under 139.

He also carded a bogey and one double, the latter of which a 5 at the 18th hole where he flew the green with his tee ball and eventually three-putted from 60 feet.
