Honolulu native Parker McLachlin readies for his ninth appearance at the Sony Open in Hawaii.
McLachlin has local knowledge on his side but is just 2-for-8 at Waialae Country Club. He's packed his bag early each of his last four trips to Oahu. The highlight of his Sony Open career is clearly the T10 which took place during the 2008 edition. Last year he posted an 0-for-3 record on the PGA TOUR, and can safely be avoided in all fantasy formats this week. Tue, Jan 10, 2017 08:49:00 PM

Honolulu native Parker McLachlin is set to make his eighth appearance at the Sony Open in Hawaii.

The 36-year-old is 2-for-7 at Waialae Country Club with one top 10 (T10/2008). He's missed the cut in each of his previous three visits, including his latest attempt back in 2012. The former PGA TOUR member has one TOUR win in 114 career starts, claiming victory at the 2008 Legends Reno-Tahoe Open by seven strokes. He made just three starts across all tours in 2015, including two opposite-field events on the PGA TOUR, posting a T61 at the Barbasol and a missed cut 23 weeks ago at the Barracuda Championship in his most recent action.

Parker McLachlin gets the start this week at the inaugural Barbasol Championship via Past Champion status.

McLachlin has one PGA TOUR win in 112 career starts, claiming the title at the 2008 Legends Reno-Taho Open by a whopping seven strokes. He played out his exemption through the 2009 and 2010 seasons, but has made just eight TOUR starts since 2011, last seen on the main tour missing the cut at the 2013 Reno-Tahoe Open. The 36-year-old has played one event on the Tour in 2014 and one in 2015, making an early departure from both, including in his latest start at the Colombia Championship back in February.

Parker McLachlin has been added to the published field of this week's Sanderson Farms Championship.

McLachlin wasn't among the top-10 alternates when the field was released on Friday afternoon, but he gained entry as one since he's a former PGA TOUR winner. Since losing his PGA TOUR card following the 2010 season (that he ended going 0-for-9), he's missed six consecutive cuts and hasn't competed since last year's Reno-Tahoe Open.

Parker McLachlin was added to the published field of this week's Sony Open in Hawaii.

The native Hawaiian was given the final sponsor exemption into the field. He's 2-for-6 at the event with a T10 in 2008. McLachlin has Past Champion status on the PGA TOUR and isn't worth a fantasy investment. One other change in the field: Peter Tomasulo withdrew as the first alternate.

On Tuesday morning, Parker McLachlin was added to the field of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

McLachlin gained entry to the field via a sponsor's exemption. His last paycheck on the PGA TOUR was at last year's HP Byron Nelson, where he tied for 53rd place.

Parker McLachlin signed for a 6-over-par 38-40=78 following his opening round of the WNB Golf Classic.

This is McLachlin's first competition round since withdrawing from the Reno-Tahoe Open on July 16, and since he and his wife became parents on August 11. Overall, he exhibited expected rust, hitting seven (of 14) fairways, nine greens and took a whopping 32 putts. His return to the PGA TOUR is unknown.

Parker McLachlin is listed in the published field of next week's WNB Golf Classic on the Nationwide Tour.

McLachlin still hasn't competed since withdrawing from the Reno-Tahoe Open on July 16, updated his web site or Twitter. His wife delivered the couple's first child on August 11. We'll continue to keep an eye on him.

Parker McLachlin has been removed from the field for the Utah Championship on the Nationwide Tour.

The sabbatical lives another week. He hasn't tweeted or updated his web site in quite a while, so we can only assume that he's busy catering to the needs of his wife and newborn girl. McLachlin hasn't played anywhere since withdrawing from the Reno-Tahoe Open on July 16.

Parker McLachlin is listed in the published field of next week's Utah Championship on the Nationwide Tour.

McLachlin became a father for the first time on August 11, and hasn't played anywhere since. He's cashed in just four of 15 starts on the PGA TOUR this year, and has dealt with a recurring wrist injury. His fully-exempt status for winning in Reno in 2008 expires at the end of this season.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser has confirmed that Parker McLachlin's wife, Kristy, has given birth to the couple's first child.

Kristy delivered a girl on August 11. Parker last teed it up in Reno, where he withdrew before his second round (July 16). Barring a series of top fives in the Fall Series, he will require a trip to Q School to retain his PGA TOUR card.

The Herald-Dispatch included a brief note in an article today that Parker McLachlin's wife, Kristy, will be delivering the couple's first child any day now.

Kristy's pregnancy might also explain why her husband withdrew before his second round of the Reno-Tahoe Open on July 16. McLachlin's web site does not provide any detail.

On Monday afternoon, Parker McLachlin withdrew form the field of The Greenbrier Classic.

The withdrawal isn't a surprise after McLachlin withdrew a couple of weeks ago after opening with a round of 81 at the Reno-Tahoe Open. McLachlin is currently in 220th place on the PGA Tour's Money List.

Parker McLachlin is listed in the published field of next week's Greenbrier Classic.

We still don't know why McLachlin called it quits after his opening 81 at last week's Reno-Tahoe Open. He battled a wrist injury earlier in the year, however. And it's been a brutal season during which he has zero top 50s of four paydays in 15 starts. Superb duffer league material if he gives it a go in West Virginia.

Parker McLachlin withdrew prior to his second round today at the Reno-Tahoe Open.

McLachlin opened with a 9-over-par 40-41=81 on Thursday. He was scheduled to tee off today at 1:04 p.m. local time, and did not provide a reason for pulling out. He won this event in 2008, and his exemption from that victory expires this year. It's likely that he's already submitted his Q School application since he's cashed just four times in 15 starts, earning a mere $53,291.
