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. Mar 25 - 11:17 PM

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 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 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.
Feb 4 - 9:04 PM

Troy Matteson was forced to drop down to the Tour Finals to regain his status for the 2013-14 PGA TOUR season, and a fast start makes it clear he intends to hold onto his card this time around.

Matteson has been a staple on TOUR since 2006, so his return to the Tour proved to be a wake-up call. His $230,550 in four starts to begin the new campaign almost matches his $245,090 a year ago. Though he missed two cuts, his T5 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open has him off and running. The expectation is that he will show up on leaderboards in events with weaker fields. He is subject to the reshuffle, but his early bankroll should make starts relatively easy to come by.

Troy Matteson blistered TPC Summerlin for a blemish-free 7-under-par 34-30=64 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, joining Luke Guthrie in the clubhouse lead at 16-under 278.

Matteson recorded seven birdies, and they were all in one big bunch. After opening with eight pars, he hopped on the birdie train at the par-5 ninth and didn't get off until settling for a par at the reachable par-5 16th. A week like this is just what the doctor ordered for the veteran. As a Tour Finals grad,he is subject to the reshuffle throughout the 2013-14 season. A week like this will be worth plenty of starts in the weeks to come.

Troy Matteson carded a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Matteson turns just 34 years of age on Nov. 8, but it seems like it's been eons since he broke through with the maiden PGA TOUR win in Vegas in 2006. That time warp is aided by the fact that he's cashed only one time in six return trips (T27, 2009). He hadn't broken par in his four previous rounds before today during which he went 6-for-14 in birdie chances. Hit most notable conversions measured 10'11" and 20'3" at the fifth and seventh holes, respectively. He also squared two bogeys to finish four strokes off the early clubhouse lead.

Troy Matteson missed the cut at the Open and now turns his attention to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

It is important that Matteson get off to a solid start, as he is subject to the Tour Finals reshuffle after beginning the season 15th on that list. He won at TPC Summerlin in his first try back in 2006, but missed five of his six cuts since. A top 10 this week would allow him plenty of flexibility in his schedule for the remainder of the season.

After the second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship resumed at 6:10 p.m. CT, Troy Matteson ran the table with pars to post his second 5-under-par 67 to join the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.

Matteson turned in respective nines of 32 and 35 in the second round. He hit only 11 greens in regulation but limited the damage to one bogey at the par-3 eighth hole. It's his only blemish of the week thus far. In an interview on Golf Channel during the weather delay, he shared that he changed coaches a couple of months ago, so his recent improved play is a result of the new relationship.

Troy Matteson posted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

While he faded to finish T27 at last week's John Deere, it's clear that Matteson has found some form. He landed 15 greens in regulation and buried five birdies at Annandale, completing his round after this morning's restart. He signed his card sitting four strokes adrift of the clubhouse lead.

Troy Matteson enjoyed a 7-under-par 31-33=64 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

The veteran has cashed eight times this season but arrived in the Quad Cities just 171st in FedExCup points since only one of those paydays went for a top 40, but he knows all too well that it takes only one week to turn a year around. After starting par-par today at TPC Deere Run, Matteson jarred his tee ball from 132 yards at the par-3 third hole for a hole-in-one. He chased it with six birdies, four of which from outside 11 feet. Two of those were zero-putt four-yarders from just off the greens at Nos. 10 and 18. He reached the halfway point of the tournament in 10-under 132, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Troy Matteson tied for 29th at AT&T National last year and is back for another crack this time round.

Matteson has turned into a bit of a staple on the PGA TOUR the last few years, but at 184th in the FedExCup standings needs to make something happen if he wants to return in 2013-14. Things aren't exactly looking up. He’s missed his last seven cuts dating back to a T83 at the RBC Heritage.

Troy Matteson enters this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial on a massive dry spell.

Matteson has finished inside the top 50 just one time in his 14 starts this season, coming in the Waste Management Phoenix Open in the form of a T16. Add to that, he's missed his last four cuts in '13 and missed both of his cuts at Colonial CC. He's trending heading into this week to be sure. Just the wrong way.

Troy Matteson returns to Harbour Town for his sixth RBC Heritage.

Desperation likely requires Matteson to tee it up this week. Given he’s never scored a paycheck in his five previous trips, it certainly isn’t course history bringing him back. He enters the week having made his last four cuts of 2013, with none of those inside the top 50. At 155th in the FedExCup standings, he must climb his way upward soon.
