If he earns at least $105,783 in his next start, then he'll have conditional status for the rest of the season. Should Browne fall short of conditional status, then he would have to play out of the past champion category and he would be able to accept unlimited sponsor's exemptions.

The MC leaves him with three events to earn $404,088 on his medical extension. Don't count the veteran out just yet but he'll need a couple of Top 10s to make a run at it. It's hard to believe that he'll turn 49 on May 22.
