At 1-under-par 70-73=143 through two rounds of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Jarrod Lyle will miss the cut.
Sigh. This makes six straight MCs dating back to the Humana Challenge. He neutralized six birdies with five bogeys at TPC Louisiana this week. Lyle now has 12 starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to bank $230,030 and retain status. He started the week slotted 187th in the FedExCup standings. So, even with sponsor exemptions, he's not fulfilling the expectations with which he entered the season. At this point, even though he should be playing more often in the second half, it's probably time to cut bait if you're still on board. Apr 24 - 2:07 PM

Jarrod Lyle completed 36 holes of the Shell Houston Open in 3-under-par 69-72=141, missing the cut on the number.

The Aussie hit 29 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies, but he walked off the Golf Club of Houston today with a bogey-5 at the 18th hole. That was the result of a three-putt from 40'3". The par attempt failed to drop from just 37 inches. It's the cruel fate of the game. It's also his fifth consecutive MC. Lyle hasn't cashed anywhere since a T25 at the Aussie PGA in mid-December. If there's good news, it's that he still has 13 starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $230,030 and retain status. Given that that basically amounts to the rest of the regular season, his sights are on the top 125 in the FedExCup standings. He arrived in Houston slotted a distant 181st.

Jarrod Lyle reached the halfway point of the Valero Texas Open in 8-over-par 79-73=152 and will miss the cut.

He's likely going to be two strokes too high. Lyle sat 2-under on the day through 12 holes, but squared three bogeys against zero par breakers coming home. It's his fourth consecutive missed cut dating back to the Humana Challenge. What began as an inspiring story of personal victory has evolved into disappointment inside the ropes. But it takes only one week to turn a career around on the PGA TOUR. He'll try again at next week's Shell Houston Open where he was given a sponsor exemption into the field of 144. The Aussie hasn't seen the Golf Club of Houston since placing T76/MDF in 2011.

At 4-over-par 76-72=148, Jarrod Lyle will miss the cut at the Puerto Rico Open.

While he knows tough, this was a tough week inside the ropes for the Aussie. He hit 24 greens in regulation and failed to record a birdie or better. He went 0-for-14 today en route to 18 pars. Lyle also squared four bogeys, all on Thursday. This is his third straight missed cut. He now has 15 starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $230,030 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.
Mar 6 - 3:48 PM

Jarrod Lyle completed 36 holes of the Farmers Insurance Open in 8-over-par 73-79=152 and will miss the cut.

Today's big number occurred on the South Course at Torrey Pines where he hit only nine greens in regulation and squared six bogeys and a double. However, Thursday's loop around the North was also a disappointment given he finished over par despite landing 15 GIR. This is Lyle's second consecutive MC. It leaves him with 16 starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $230,030 and a promotion of the Major Medical category.
Feb 6 - 5:28 PM

Jarrod Lyle reached the three-quarter pole at the Humana Challenge in 4-under-par 73-69-70=212 and will miss the cut.

Lyle's lap around Nicklaus Private at PGA West today included seven birdies, but he backtracked with two bogeys and a triple bogey-7 (at the 15th hole). This ends a modest string of four consecutive cuts made on the PGA TOUR dating back to 2012. His last MC occurred at Pebble Beach nearly three full years ago. While he remains a smart choice in full-season games, for the record, he's down to 17 starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $230,030 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Jarrod Lyle is listed in the published field of next week's Humana Challenge.

The Aussie cashed in both of his cut to open the 2014-15 season. That yielded a rise of 29 spots in the Web.com Tour reshuffle and a spot on merit in the Humana. Since returning to competition in earnest following his second bout with leukemia, Lyle is 5-for-9 on three tours. He shared 25th place in his most recent start at the Australian PGA Championship. Of all of the golfers with medical extensions right now, his target is arguably the easiest to hit. He has 18 starts to earn just $230,030.

Jarrod Lyle came to rest at 8-under-par 66-71-70-69=276 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open, good for a share of 42nd place worth $20,495.43.

Considering that he ranked outside the top 60 in both distance and accuracy off the tee, Lyle squeezed the most out of his second start of the season. He even enjoyed an eagle-2 at the drivable, par-4 15th today. The conversion measured just 67 inches. He now has 18 events remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $230,030 and a promotion to the Major Medical category. After his round today, he told Golf Channel that he's going to return to his native Australia for three starts and won't play the PGA TOUR again until it resumes after the holidays.

Jarrod Lyle stapled a 5-under-par 33-33=66 on the board in his opening round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

TPC Summerlin is a pushover, but if you're not convinced that the Aussie is all the way back, nothing may persuade you. He hit 15 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies, five of which from outside 13 feet. The most notable measured 32'2" and 31'11" at the 18th and fourth holes, respectively. At last check, his strokes gained: putting clip sat at 2.643. Lyle three-jacked the par-4 12th from just outside 30 feet for bogey, and he went 2-for-3 in scrambling with another bogey, but he just two strokes adrift of the clubhouse co-leaders.

In his return to the PGA TOUR, Jarrod Lyle finished in an eight-way share of 31st place at 5-under-par 72-70-71-70=283 and pocketed $33,300.00.

There's value in that consistency even though he didn't light up the stat sheets. Of course, his most impressive effort was merely coming all the way back from defeating leukemia a second time, but Lyle has to be proud of the fact that he limited the damage on the weekend to three bogeys against six birdies. He'll make the trip to this week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with 19 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to bank $250,525 and retain status.

Jarrod Lyle submitted an even-par 35-37=72 for his opening round of the Frys.com Open.

The score is more symbolic than relevant, but he's only two strokes off the pace of the early 36-hole clubhouse co-leaders. This is his first appearance on the PGA TOUR since late February of 2012. He's since defeated leukemia a second time and even open qualified for this week's event, surviving an 8-for-4 playoff to do so. That's a surprise to no one. Today, Lyle split six (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation en route to three birdies, including a beaut from just inside 32 feet at the par-4 eighth hole. He bogeyed the par-4 third and doubled the par-4 17th just to prove that he's still human. The 33-year-old Aussie has 20 events on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $283,825 and a promotion to the Major Medical category. He's a no-brainer in salary formats and could battle for spots in weekly lineups before long.

Jarrod Lyle spun a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic to tie for 11th at 11-under 273.

Considering this was his first action in the United States following his most recent bout with leukemia, the week was a rousing success. His ball-striking was superb as he led the tournament in greens in regulation at 80.56 percent and tied for second in driving accuracy at 78.57 percent. His 1.81 putting average was the only thing holding him back. Keep an eye on him in his two remaining rehab starts on the Web.com Tour. It's not out of the question for him to crack the top 75 on the money list, thus earning a spot in the Web.com Finals without the need for a medical exception to qualify.

Jarrod Lyle authored one of the stories of the year in today's opening round of the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic, crafting a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-36=67.

It doesn't get much better than this. In his third start since his second bout with leukemia, Lyle went 2-for-2 in scrambling and circled four birdies at Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate in Overland Park, Kansas. All four of his birdies dropped in on his outward nine. He even sat atop the early leaderboard before coming to rest two strokes off the clubhouse lead. Lyle will get two more rehab starts before he's forced to return to the PGA TOUR when eligible on merit.

Jarrod Lyle is listed in the published field of next week's Midwest Classic on the Web.com Tour.

This aligns with the original report out of Australia in April and his confirmation in May that the annual stop in Overland Park, Kansas, would serve as his first PGA TOUR-sanctioned start since the 2012 OHL Classic at Mayakoba (when it was contested opposite the WGC-Accenture Match Play in February). Lyle has three rehab starts remaining before he returns to the PGA TOUR on which he has a medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $283,825 in 20 starts for a promotion to the Major Medical category. He's planning on getting back to the big leagues when the 2014-15 season begins in October. It would be reasonable to expect him to compete in the Web.com Tour Finals if he qualifies either automatically or via the medical.

In a blog update on his website, Jarrod Lyle eliminated confusion about when he's planning on returning to competition in the United States by circling the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic on July 24-27.

Citing Lyle's manager, GolfChannel.com reported a month ago that the golfer would be returning two weeks later at the Price Cutter Charity Championship in Springfield, Missouri. That refuted the original report out of Australia that Lyle would, indeed, play the Midwest Classic in Overland Park, Kansas. Whatever wires were crossed, Lyle will play in both before wrapping up his rehab at the News Sentinel Open near Knoxville, Tennessee, on Aug. 14-17. "I have intentionally chosen Web.com Tour events in Kansas City, Springfield and Knoxville because each of these courses require players to be a bit more aggressive with their game, and hopefully I’ll be able to get a good idea of which parts of my game still need work," he wrote. "If all goes well, I hope to play on the PGA Tour again in October, although that is still a long way off."
