David Berganio, Jr. is not listed in the published field of next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

While the WMPO begins on Feb. 2, we waited a week just as a buffer. Whenever he returns, he'll have seven starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $547,166 and get elevated to the Major Medical category.

According to a report by The Dallas Morning News, David Berganio, Jr. is hopeful to return to competition in January.

DBJ caddied for friend Jack Wagner during the actor's victory at the American Century Celebrity Golf Championship in Lake Tahoe today. "I think whenever I've folded up here and been close to the lead, it's because I've always thought about what might happen, or the negative thoughts," Wagner said. "And today I stayed pretty positive. That's a lot to do with David." The touring pro has been out of action for two full years now due to a chronic back injury; he hasn't played since the final PGA TOUR event in Milwaukee in 2009. When he returns, he'll have a Major Medical Extension (reshuffle category) with seven starts to earn $547,166 and get elevated to the Major Medical category.

David Berganio, Jr. still has seven starts on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) to earn $547,166 and get elevated to the MME category.

A nagging disc injury in his back has prevented DBJ from teeing it up in a sanctioned event since July 2009. He did attempt a sectional qualifier for the 2010 U.S. Open, only to fall short. He's gold for duffer leagues if he returns, but that's it.
