2017-18 PGA TOUR Medical Extensions
By Rob Bolton, PGATOUR.COM
Medical extensions in order of the 2017-18 PGA TOUR Eligibility Ranking.
• In the only start on his medical extension, Ben Crane missed the cut at the Safeway Open. He fell 84.294 FedExCup points shy. However, because he had already achieved conditional status, he will play out of no worse than Category No. 30 in the Eligibility Ranking for the remainder of the season.
• In the last start on his medical extension, Brian Davis missed the cut at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba. He fell 405.675 FedExCup points and $657,866 shy. He also fell short of securing conditional status by 270.150 FedExCup points. As a result, he will play out of Category 32 (via Veteran Membership) for the remainder of the season.
^ - Qualified for conditional status if he fails to meet the terms on his medical.
% - If a golfer eligible on merit for a PGA TOUR event elects to play the PGA TOUR Champions the same week, he will be charged one start against his medical.
& - Bronson Burgoon is fully exempt as a Web.com Tour Finals grad, so he will play out of no worse than Category No. 26 in the Eligibility Ranking. However, if he meets the terms of his medical, he'll be promoted to Category No. 22.
# - In the field at the CareerBuilder Challenge as of Jan. 14.
|Golfer||Category||# played||FedExCup points earned*||$ earned||# remaining||FedExCup points remaining*||$ remaining|
|David Berganio, Jr.||Reshuffle||0||-||$0||7||-||$547,166|
* - Because the FedExCup points structure was modified for the 2016-17 season, when golfers on medicals granted to time missed before the conversion earn FedExCup points in a tournament in 2017-18, they will be credited with the values distributed through the 2015-16 season. Thus, both "FedExCup points scored" and "FedExCup points remaining" for these golfers reflect the distribution through 2015-16 and not actual FedExCup points earned that apply to their FedExCup ranking in the 2017-18 season.
