Dudley Hart withdrew during his opening round of the Wyndham Championship due to a back injury.
Hart called it quits after finding the green in 2 at the par-4 first hole, his 10th of the round. He was 1-over-par through nine with an eagle-3 (at No. 15) and a trio of bogey-5s. It's his 37th mid-tournament WD in 482 PGA TOUR starts. Sadly, it's come full circle for the 47-year-old who was making his last start on a Major Medical Extension provided after he underwent two back fusion surgeries years ago. For the record, he fell short of meeting the terms of the MME by $435,054. At this point, it's anyone's guess what he's going to do. His game hasn't been up to snuff for the PGA TOUR in some time and he won't turn 50 until August of 2018. As a result, we'll leave him off our Injury Report for now. Aug 20 - 11:19 AM

Dudley Hart completed 36 holes of the RBC Canadian Open in 3-over-par 74-73=147 and will miss the cut.

In his first start since the RBC Heritage, the 1996 champ at Glen Abbey found only 10 (of 28) fairways and 17 greens in regulation in two laps this week. He circled seven birdies but they weren't enough to overcome six bogeys and a pair of doubles, both at the par-3 fourth hole. Seeing that this was the penultimate start on his Major Medical Extension, the 46-year-old has just one remaining to earn $435,054 and retain status. He's $226,881 shy of qualifying for conditional status as a secondary objective.

Dudley Hart has withdrawn from this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Given that he's down to two starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $435,054 or lose status, you can understand why he'd be hesitant. That said, the purse for this week's tournament is a beefy $6.9 million, so he may be thinking longer-term now.

Dudley Hart arrived at the midpoint of the RBC Heritage in 2-over-par 71-73=144 and will miss the cut.

It's a familiar refrain for the 46-year-old as he nears the end of his Major Medical Extension. Hart erased six birdies with four bogeys and two doubles at Harbour Town this week. He's now 2-for-6 on the season. It leaves him with just two starts on the MME to collect $435,054 and retain status.

At 15-over-par 77-82=157, Dudley Hart will miss the cut at the Valero Texas Open.

And he was bogey-free 1-under through four holes on Thursday. Hart shifted it into reverse and floored it. He squared 13 bogeys and two doubles. He piped nine (of 14) fairways today, but went 0-for-7 in scoring opportunities. This drops him to 2-for-5 on the season and leaves him with three starts on his Major Medical Extension to bank $435,054 and retain status.

Dudley Hart has elected not to compete in this week's Valspar Championship.

He was an early exit from The Honda Classic two weeks ago, too. Given that he has only four starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $435,054 and retain status, you can understand why he'd want to be choosy even when healthy.

Dudley Hart has withdrawn from this week's Honda Classic.

Hart hasn't played PGA National in competition since 2009 when he withdrew after only 12 holes with a back injury. He'll remain parked with four starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $435,054 and retain status. He offers nothing in terms of fantasy value, however.

Dudley Hart completed his week at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am with a 1-under-par 36-35=71.

Hart posted 8-under 279 for a three-way share of 51st place worth $16,365.34. After Thursday's eight-birdie performance on the host course, he's converted only seven birdies on his last 54 holes. The payday takes a nibble out of his Major Medical Extension for which he has four starts remaining to bank $435,054 and retain status.
Feb 15 - 7:41 PM

Dudley Hart toured Pebble Beach Golf Links in 7-under-par 32-33=65 to open the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

Having some moxie never hurt anyone. Hart entered the week having cashed in 284 of 477 PGA TOUR starts, winning two of them. He's grinding through a Major Medical Extension this season, but three more rounds like this one and that will be a thing of the past. He piped 12 (of 14) fairways and went 8-for-15 in birdie opportunities. That set included five on his outward nine, the longest disappearing from 28'7" at the par-4 eighth hole. The highlight of his three inward circles dropped in from 12'10" at the par-4 15th. Hart sits just one stroke off the clubhouse lead and will head over to Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course for the second round.

Dudley Hart completed 54 holes of the Humana Challenge in 3-under-par 72-70-71=213 and will miss the cut.

Hart concluded his rotation on PGA West's Nicklaus Private but failed to capitalize on the easiest golf course the PGA TOUR tosses out there. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled four birdies, but swallowed one bogey and a double. At the time he signed his card, he ranked T17 in GIR (41), but T125 in birdies (10). Now 1-for-3 on the season, Hart has just five starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $451,419 and retain status.

Dudley Hart is scheduled to compete in next week's Humana Challenge.

Last we heard from the 46-year-old, he was leaving México after getting disqualified from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba after his second round two months ago. An explanation was never confirmed, but he wasn't going to make the cut anyway. It dropped him to 1-for-2 on the season. Hart missed the cut in his return to the Humana Challenge last year; it was his first trip in seven years. While he has no fantasy value, he has six starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $451,419 and retain status.

Dudley Hart was disqualified from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba after his second round.

He completed 36 holes in 9-over-par 79-72=151, so he would have missed the cut anyway. Given the timing, he likely signed an incorrect scorecard, but we will confirm if that information is made available. This is his second lost opportunity to cash in as many starts this season. It leaves him with six starts on his Major Medical Extension to bank $451,419 and retain status. He's only 46 years of age, so it's not like he can use the MME to bridge to the Champions Tour à la Paul Goydos recently. Moreover, Hart is going to need to pile up high finishes to threaten fulfilling its terms, but he hasn't logged a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since September of 2008.

Dudley Hart settled for a three-way share of 67th place at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Poised to made noise at TPC Summerlin where he was tied for 34th entering the finale, Hart closed with a 4-over-par 37-38=75 and posted 3-under 281 worth $12,648.00. He hit only 10 greens in regulation and equaled four birdies with as many bogeys while adding two doubles. This leaves him with seven starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $451,419 and retain status.

Dudley Hart smoothed a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

You read that right. The 46-year-old wiped away one bogey -- a three-jack from just inside 30 feet at the par-5 16th hole -- with seven birdies en route to his lowest aggregate since a closing 65 at the 2008 BMW Championship at Bellerive Country Club. Included in his highlight package at TPC Summerlin today was a 10-yard hole-out from just off the putting surface at the par-4 second hole and a conventional ride from 33'3" at the par-4 seventh. At 3-under 139, he's seven strokes off the pace of the 36-hole clubhouse leader. This is his first payday on the PGA TOUR since his last starts at the RBC Heritage six months ago.

Dudley Hart is included in the published field of next week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Hart gave the Web.com Tour Finals a try, but went 0-for-3 with two missed cuts and a withdrawal. He hasn't pegged it on the PGA TOUR since the RBC Heritage in April. He still has eight starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $464,067 and retain status. If he honors his commitment in Vegas, it'll mark his first appearance since 2011 (T52).
