At 3-under-par 71-68-72-74=285, Jarrod Lyle finished in a six-way share of 63rd place at the Sanderson Farms Championship, earnings $8,569.00.
His extended stay in Mississippi included a bogey-free second round that featured an eagle-2 at the 15th hole. However, the Aussie found only 23 greens in regulation after the cut to give way to those who were executing better. It's his first payday in two starts this season and leaves him with eight on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $209,111 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Jarrod Lyle backed up for a 5-over-par 38-39=77 in today's second round of the Frys.com Open and will miss the cut.

Lyle landed only eight greens in regulation and converted one birdie today. He dropped shots with three bogeys and a triple at the par-4 third hole. For the tournament, he found 11 (of 28) fairways and 18 GIR en route to a strokes gained: tee-to-green clip of minus-5.087 at last check. This will leave him with nine starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $217,680 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

In his first PGA TOUR start since late May, Jarrod Lyle recorded a 3-under-par 34-35=69 for his opening round of the Frys.com Open.

He didn't necessarily look like he was in better shape, but he played like it, and this observation despite only five (of 14) fairways hit and 10 greens in regulation. Rather, Lyle limited the damage to two bogey-5s and circled four par breakers. The highlight occurred at the par-5 16th where he holed out from 64 yards for eagle. Two of his three birdies ranged 11-15 feet. As the final threesomes complete the lid-lifter, the Aussie sat T26 on the leaderboard.

Jarrod Lyle is in the field of next week's Frys.com Open on a sponsor exemption.

The Aussie stated in early July that he anticipated getting back on the PGA TOUR at Silverado. He took a mini-sabbatical after Colonial in late May to improve his fitness and save the 10 starts he has remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category. Should he collect $217,680 before he exhausts it, he'll be promoted to the Major Medical category for the remainder of the season. At this time last year, it seemed like a foregone conclusion that Lyle would cruise to those terms, but he went just 3-for-10 without a top 30. He's a terrific story, of course, but gamers should hold tight in observation mode only.

In a blog update on Monday, Jarrod Lyle explained that he's ramping his physical fitness for his return to competition in October.

He's still eyeing the Frys.com Open in mid-October to resume his schedule in the U.S., but he's planning on doing so in better shape. "I have been working very hard in the gym the last 2 weeks trying to get myself fitter and stronger for my next tournament in October," he wrote. "It’s a part of my golfing life that has never been a priority but after the first half of this year getting no results on the course I thought something needed to change and this was the one area that I could see a huge improvement." When he returns, the Aussie will have celebrated his 34th birthday (in August) and he'll be armed with 10 starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $217,680 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

As a result of uninspiring results, Jarrod Lyle has decided not to play again during the 2014-15 season, sitting out until the Frys.com Open in October.

He's nowhere near his projection entering the season. It's hard enough to resume competitive golf at the highest level, much less in the wake of his serious health battles. So, Lyle and his family will repair their homeland of Australia to regroup. "I need to stress that this decision has nothing to do with my recent illness; I am still healthy and cancer-free," he said. "As the year progressed, it has become increasingly obvious that I am simply not in a position to compete on the PGA TOUR. My goal every single week out here, just like the rest of the field, is to play my best and to be competitive. ... My family and I have had a tough road over the last few years, and now that my health has been given the all clear it is time to turn my attention fully to my career. Just like I did whatever it took to fight for my life in the last few years, I am now going to do whatever it takes to fight for my job."

At 2-over-par 69-69-74=212, Jarrod Lyle settled for a share of 74th place at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The Aussie was poised for a big week, but he hit just six greens in regulation in the third round and erased a lone birdie with a quintet of bogey-5s. He earned $12,350.00 and put an end to an 0-for-7 slide, but Lyle still hasn't found reliable form since returning from leukemia a second time. He has 10 starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to bank $217,680 and get promoted to the Major Medical category.

Jarrod Lyle completed 36 hole of the Wells Fargo Championship in 8-over-par 75-77=152 and will miss the cut.

He hit 21 greens in regulation and collected four birdies, but Lyle also squared eight bogeys and a pair of doubles to secure his seventh straight MC. This also leaves him with 11 starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $230,030 and a promotion to the Major Medical category, but what once looked like an easy objective has gradually evolved into a tall task.

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 get promoted to the Major Medical category. 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.

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 a promotion to the Major Medical category. 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.

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.

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.
