Dicky Pride has picked up a sponsor exemption into the Arnold Palmer Invitational.
Pride is playing with conditional status in 2013-14, making just four starts and securing only one paycheck for his troubles. Needless to say, he needs to make the most of the charity extended to him by Mr. Palmer this week. The Alabama product has made 16 previous starts at Bay Hill, making the cut half the time with just one top 10 and one additional top 25. Mar 19 - 8:49 PM

Dicky Pride signed for an even-par 36-36=72 following his second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am on the host course.

His ball-striking remained on point in the second round -- 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation -- but he circled only three birdies, the longest of which from just 11'6" at the par-3 eight hole. He was perfect from inside 11 feet during the round but was stung by a double-bogey 6 at the ninth where he finished. He missed the green with his third and wound up two-putting from 11-and-a-half feet. Pride sits 5-under 138, four strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders.
Feb 7 - 7:10 PM

Dicky Pride completed his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am this morning, signing for a 5-under-par 30-36=66 at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course.

This is a big week for the veteran. He entered the week 0-for-2 on the season, and because he has conditional status, he won't get too many chances to play until the fields expand to 156 with regularity in a few months. He capitalized on this week's opportunity at MPCC, missing only one of 13 fairways and one green in regulation. His only gaffe on the card was a bogey-5 at 15, but he had already lassoed six birdies for some insurance. Pride will attempt to tackle Pebble Beach in the second round.

Dicky Pride has been added to the published field of this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Pride started the week as the ninth alternate. He gained entry today when Stephen Ames withdrew. Pride started on the 10th hole at Torrey Pines South in today's opening round. In his only previous start this season, he missed the cut at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba where he received a sponsor exemption. The 44-year-old, one-time PGA TOUR winner has conditional status, so his fantasy value won't improve until late April at the soonest.
Jan 23 - 2:44 PM

Dicky Pride will be forced to play with only conditional status in 2013-14.

To be optimistic, he's made more out of less. In 2012, when he began the season with merely past champion status, he logged a T5 at Mayakoba and a T7 in The Honda Classic before picking off a solo second in the HP Byron Nelson Championship. Pride then advanced all the way to the third leg of the FedExCup Playoffs. With fully exempt status in 2013, he faded to place 144th in the FedExCup standings and has missed his only cut of the 2013-14 season.

Dicky Pride begins his 2013-14 PGA TOUR season at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba.

Pride used this event to jump start his 2012 season, tying for fifth and eventually earning enough money with only Past Champion status to secure full status for the following year. At least this season he owns conditional status, which should afford him a few more starts than he was looking at in 2012. A top 10 this week would mean the option for a tee time at the Sony Open in January.

Dicky Pride picked up his best finish of the year at the Reno-Tahoe Open thanks in part to an eight-point final round.

Pride circled five birdies and handed back two bogeys on his afternoon, improving his weekly tally to 32. His previous best finish this year was a T9 at the Sony Open to start the year. He is guaranteed to finish no worse than sixth, with several groups still on the course. Even with that, he is still on the outside looking in at the FedExCup Playoff berth with only one potential start remaining.

Dicky Pride added 13 points to his tally during the third round of the Reno-Tahoe Open and enters the finale with 24.

Points had five birdies and two bogeys through is first 17 holes, but an eagle (five points) on the par-5 18th pushed him over the top and turned a good day into a great one. He entered the week 152nd in the FedExCup standings and with plenty of work to do if he hopes to find a tee time at The Barclays.

Dicky Pride has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Another curious decision by a touring pro outside the top 125 in FedExCup points. Pride tied for 65th place at Annandale on Sunday but fell four spots to 151st in the standings. He hasn't cracked a top 45 in his last 13 starts.

Dicky Pride carded a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, finishing one stroke off the early clubhouse lead.

Ranked 147th in FedExCup points, the Alabaman, like many in this field, needs a solid week to sniff the Playoffs. Pride has cashed in his last four starts but he hasn't logged a top-45 finish in four months. He hit 13 greens in regulation and poured in eight birdies against three bogeys at Annandale today.

Dicky Pride will make his debut in The Greenbrier Classic at The Old White TPC this week.

After a big 2012, Pride currently sits 140th in the FedExCup standings and has work to do if he wants to avoid the four-tournament qualifier for a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card. The last time he finished inside the top 50 in a tournament was all the way back in March at the Tampa Bay Championship. He enters the week 147th in the all-around ranking.

Dicky Pride enters the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial having missed the cut in five of his last six PGA TOUR starts.

Pride doesn't have a solid course history to lean on either. He's missed the cut in both of his previous trips, the most recent last year. There is little reason to be optimistic about his chances.

Dicky Pride is set for his fourth RBC Heritage this week.

The last time Pride set foot on Harbour Town was way back in 2000, finishing 71st. After back-to-back top 25s in Puerto Rico and Tampa Bay, he missed his most recent two cuts at Bay Hill and TPC San Antonio. His only saving grace may be his 28th ranking in driving accuracy. Given the tight layout players face this week, keeping the ball in play off the tee is a must.

Dicky Pride shot a 2-under-par 37-32=69 in his opening round of the Tampa Bay Championship, settling one stroke back of the clubhouse co-leaders.

It was a bit of a strange day at Copperhead for the veteran. He went 7-for-7 in scrambling but still suffered a bogey. It occurred at the par-3 eighth hole where he three-putted from 16'10". Pride canceled it out, at least from a standpoint of a moral victory, with a par save from 11'2" at the 15, and that was after birdies from the fringe 13 yards away at the 11th and a traditional conversion from 12'11" at 14.

Dicky Pride ended his week at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico with a bogey-free 33-33=66 to finish the Puerto Rico Open at 15-under 273.

Given he tied for 20th in this event last year, it isn't a big surprise that the veteran found the course once again to his liking. He took advantage of the par 5s today, making birdie on all four of them and tacking on birdies on two of the par 4s. He now heads to Tampa Bay to tackle the Copperhead Course.
