Troy Matteson does battle at this week's inaugural Barbasol Championship at the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail and enters the festivities 229th in the FedExCup standings.
Matteson has made seven starts on the PGA TOUR season, missing six cuts and cashing a T22 at the Puerto Rico Open in March. He missed the cut by seven strokes on rounds of 71-74 at last week's John Deere Classic. The 35-year-old is 4-for-6 on the Web.com Tour season with one top 10 (T5/Greater Dallas Open), good for 100th on that tour's money list. He has two wins on the main tour in 263 career starts, both coming at the Frys.com Open, the latest in the 2009 edition. His last top 10 came at the 2013-14 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open (T5).

Troy Matteson has gained entry into this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

The 35-year-old was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He was handed a tee time at TPC Southwind following two withdrawals. Matteson has made only five starts this season due to Past Champion status and he's cashed just once for a T22 in Puerto Rico. Given his career pattern, this is rather predictable.

Troy Matteson navigated Gentle Creek Country Club in Prosper, Texas, in bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-31=62 in today's open qualifier for the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, good for a share of medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

The two-time PGA TOUR winner buried an eagle and five birdies on the modified track. Due to recent rain in the area, the 14th and 18th holes were converted to par 3s, giving the layout six for the four-spotter. Creighton Honeck also went bogey-free, scoring 7-under 29-33=62 with seven birdies. Austin Cook was the third to post 62, doing so with an eagle, six birdies and one bogey en route to respective nines of 32 and 30. Christopher Brown wrangled the final spot up for grabs with a 6-under 31-32=63. He poured in eight birdies before closing bogey-par-bogey. The field at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas is now complete at 156.

Troy Matteson is competing in this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am holding only Past Champion status.

Matteson has teed it up twice in 2015, with both of those events coming on the Web.com Tour. He made both cuts, highlighted by a T21 in the Panama Claro Championship. He missed the cut in both of his 2014-15 PGA TOUR starts to date. He's made just two of his six cuts at Pebble Beach, so it's hard to be all that optimistic in regards to his chances this week.

Troy Matteson received a sponsor exemption into this week's Frys.com Open.

Matteson is playing with only Past Champion status in 2014-15. Both of his career wins came at the Frys.com Open, although it should be noted that only the 2009 win came in this event. Frys.com also sponsored a different event in 2006 that morphed into what is now the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. Either way, this is the first time Silverado Resort and Spa’s North Course has served as the host venue, so course history is not a factor for any player.

Troy Matteson circled four birdies on his way to a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open.

Matteson was 4-for-13 in par breaker opportunities, and gave just one back on the par-4 10th hole. The bomber showed some touch around the greens today, holing out from the front edge of the par-4 second for birdie, and rolling in three putts from outside of nine feet. At 5-under 205, Matteson is having his best week in a long while, as he's gone 18 straight tournaments without a finish inside the top 40.

Troy Matteson blistered The Old White TPC for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-31=61 in his second round of The Greenbrier Classic.

This is always in his bag. But since he's truly the extreme measure at "could go low at any time," he's virtually worthless in fantasy formats. What's more, Matteson missed eight greens in regulation today, yet he found nine birdies to post 7-under 133 and sit two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. Take note of the distance of these birdie conversions: 25'9" (at the third hole), 30'9" (at No. 10), 29'10" (No. 13) and 29'7" (No. 15). He also holed out for birdie twice from off greens, first from 12 yards at the par-4 11th and again from the fringe from seven yards at the par-5 17th. He totaled just 19 putts, one off the PGA TOUR record. It's the fourth time that Matteson has spun a career-low 61, but it's just second time this season that he's broken 67.

Troy Matteson makes his annual pilgrimage to The Old White TPC at The Greenbrier Classic this week.

This week will be the 19th start of the PGA TOUR season for Matteson, making only four cuts along the way. While his season form is sub-par, his course history is much better. Matteson is 4-for-4 at Greenbrier, including a T9, and eight of his 16 rounds in red numbers. Course history buffs should take note and potentially target this week, in deeper formats only.

Troy Matteson makes his ninth start at this week's FedEx St. Jude Classic.

While TPC Southwind generally yields to the bombers, Matteson is lacking the form to trust him anywhere right now. He's is 5-for-8 in his previous St. Jude Classic attempts but has reached the 36-hole mark outside of the top 40 in seven of those. That lack of true contention is a great indicator of what to expect again this week.

Troy Matteson readies for his eighth TPC Louisiana appearance at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

After starting his TPC Louisiana career a perfect 5-for-5, Matteson has missed two consecutive cuts at the venue. It's good to know that Matteson has that potential on this course, but it's also important to note that he enters the tournament a cumulative 43-over-par on the season.

Troy Matteson turns his attention to TPC San Antonio for the Valero Texas Open.

Matteson is no stranger to the Valero as this will be his eighth crack at it. His course history at TPC San Antonio is encouraging. In fact, nine of his 14 rounds have been par or better since the tournament switched venues in 2010. The big hitter could desperately use a good showing in order to end his slide of eight consecutive missed cuts.

Troy Matteson has gained entry into this week's Honda Classic.

He started the week as the sixth alternate, but snuck in this morning when Dudley Hart withdrew. Matteson has missed his last six cuts and has cashed just once in five tries at PGA National (T26, 2012).

Troy Matteson has been added to the published field of this week's Northern Trust Open.

OK, re-added. He was moved to first alternate after three previously ineligible golfers earned spots with top 10s at Pebble Beach, and then regained entry when Jeff Overton withdrew. Matteson is mired in an 0-for-5 slump, and he's just 2-for-8 at Riviera with no top 35s.

Troy Matteson has been bumped to first alternate for this week's Northern Trust Open.

Chesson Hadley was the last man in field at the commitment deadline on Friday afternoon, and then tied for 10th at Pebble Beach. Matteson was third-to-last to gain entry, but with two other PGA TOUR members previously ineligible on merit cracking the top 10 at the AT&T, Matteson gets the shove. He hasn't cashed in five consecutive starts, but that's classic form. He usually finds a spark and keeps it lit long enough to retain fully exempt status, indicative of his spurt during the Web.com Tour Finals. That said, it makes him a terrible fantasy own in short-term formats.

Troy Matteson is a veteran of five AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Ams and is back again in 2014.

This hasn't been his sweet spot, missing three cuts and failing to crack a top 25. Given he's a Web.com Tour Finals grad and subject to the reshuffle, Matteson doesn't have the luxury of picking and choosing venues that suit his game. While he made two of his first three cuts of the 2013-14 season, he hasn't made a cut in 2014. Needless to say, the converging trends aren't good ones.
