Jeff Klauk exhausted his Major Medical Extension after sharing 71st place at the RBC Heritage.
This was our mistake. We overlooked Klauk's missed cut at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, which deducted one start from his allotment of eight on the MME. Therefore, his appearance at Harbour Town served as the final start on it. He goes in the books having come up short of meeting its terms by $429,107 to retain status. He also fell $205,859 shy of securing conditional status. As a result, the non-winner has lost his playing privileges. Expect him to compete full-time on the Tour for the remainder of the season.

At 3-over-par 72-71-73=216, Jeff Klauk settled for a share of 71st place at the RBC Heritage.

Klauk got snipped by the 54-hole cut at Harbour Town. After starting his third round on the back side of the course, he'd eventually bogey the par-4 ninth, thus thwarting an opportunity to take it deep today. After pocketing $11,136.00 for his three-day stay, he now has one start remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $429,107 and retain status. If he falls short, he'd lock up conditional status for the remainder of the year with at least $205,859.

Jeff Klauk has been added to the field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. Klauk was the first alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Kevin Na withdrew. Klauk is 3-for-6 on the season and he has just two starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $440,243 and retain status. In his only previous appearance at Bay Hill, he tied for 59th place in 2009.

Jeff Klauk completed 36 holes of the Tampa Bay Championship in 5-over-par 74-73=147 and will miss the cut.

Considering he hit only 13 greens in regulation over two rounds, his scores aren't too bad. Nevertheless, it comes at a potentially costly time as he's now down to two starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $440,243 and retain status. Klauk is also $216,995 short of the threshold for conditional status.

At 3-over-par 67-69-73-74=283, Jeff Klauk shared 29th place at The Honda Classic.

Klauk earned early-tournament television exposure thanks that pair of sub-70 scores, but he lost valuable ground on the weekend. He still earned $36,525.00 but he's now down to just three starts on his Major Medical Extension to add $440,243 and retain status.

Jeff Klauk carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in his opening round of The Honda Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

After missing the cut at Riviera, Klauk made the trip to Panama but missed the cut in the Tour's season opener. The Floridian took solo fourth at the Honda in his rookie year of 2009, so today's effort isn't anything new. He hit only 11 greens in regulation but limited the damage to two bogeys. Klauk also converted an eagle from 13'10" at the par-5 third hole in addition to three birdies, the longest of which was a 29-footer at the challenging par-3 15th that begins The Bear Trap. Including this week's start, he has four remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $476,768 and retain status.

After reaching the midpoint of the Northern Trust Open in 6-over-par 75-73=148, Jeff Klauk will miss the cut.

He hit only 17 greens in regulation and managed but an eagle and two birdies against a whopping 10 bogeys. This disappoints gamers that may have latched on after a welcome T16 at the WM Phoenix Open two weeks ago. Instead, the MC leaves Klauk with four starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $476,768 and retain status.

Jeff Klauk completed the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 14-under-par 67-68-67-68=270, good for a share of 16th place worth $84,165.00.

Klauk did what he needed to do at TPC Scottsdale. He circled an eagle and 18 birdies while limiting the damage to six bogeys. It's his best finish on the PGA TOUR since a T4 at the JT Shriners in October 2009. He now has five starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $476,768 and retain status.

Jeff Klauk fired a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open, becoming the first to reach the clubhouse at 11-under 202.

Klauk started slow enough, trading a birdie and a bogey through his first 11 holes before finishing hot. He circled birdies on the 12th, 13th and 14th holes before stopping his approach on the par-4 18th 18 inches from the bottom of the cup for a kick-in birdie to finish. With just five starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension following this week, he's doing his best to chip away at the $560,933 nut he has to cover to retain his status.

Jeff Klauk shot 1-under-par 71-72-72-72=287 at the Farmers Insurance Open, good for a share of 44th place worth $18,003.71.

Klauk survived the cut on the number thanks to a birdie-birdie finish in his second round at Torrey Pines North. It paved the way for his first payday on the PGA TOUR since the 2011 Heritage. He now has six starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $560,933 and retain status. He'll go for a second consecutive cut made at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open. Klauk hasn't cashed in two straight events since January 2010.

At 9-under-par 68-69-70=207, Jeff Klauk missed the cut on the number at the Humana Challenge.

This was Klauk's first PGA TOUR start since June of 2011. He's chosen to live with his epilepsy, forgoing invasive treatment to potentially heal his condition. One reason for his decision is the fact that both of his kids are under the age of eight. This week's effort in the desert has to support his forward progress despite the result. He rattled in 18 birdies but couldn't avoid the big number, incurring three bogeys and three doubles. This leaves him with seven starts on his Major Medical Extension (originally due to a herniated disc in his back in 2010) to earn $578,937 and retain status. He's scheduled to compete in next week's Farmers Insurance Open where he's 2-for-2 with a T9 in 2009.

Jeff Klauk signed for an even-par 36-35=71 following his opening round of the Albertsons Boise Open on the Tour.

In what was his first competitive action in 15 months, Klauk split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 11 greens and took 28 putts at Hillcrest Country Club. He offest four birdies with four bogeys and sat nine strokes off the lead as the afternoon wave plays. After his first brain surgery on April 20, he elected not to schedule a second procedure that would have resulted in a removal the part of the brain where his seizures originate. His appearance in Boise marks his first of five allotted rehab starts on the development circuit. He still has eight starts on a Major Medical Extension on the PGA TOUR to earn $578,937 and retain status.

Jeff Klauk is scheduled to compete in next week's Albertson's Boise Open on the Tour.

Klauk hasn't competed anywhere officially since giving Q School a try last December. He's been out all year dealing with the effects of epilepsy for which he had surgery on his brain on April 20. Since, he's handled the symptoms with a balance of three medications. "If everything goes well, I'll be looking forward to playing at home," said Klauk, who lives near TPC Sawgrass where he hopes to tee it up (on the Valley Course) for the Winn-Dixie Jacksonville Open in October. He gets a maximum of five rehab starts on the secondary circuit before he must return to the PGA TOUR where he has eight starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $578,937 and retain status.

In a pair of entries on Twitter on June 30, Jeff Klauk alerted his followers that he has chosen to forego a second surgery that was originally scheduled for a week from today.

Klauk wrote: "After a lot of Praying and talking with my surgeon at Emory.I decided not to have my 2nd brain surgery meds r working well. It was ... [a] tough decision but feel like the risks are just not worth taking at this time." When we first shared the details of his ordeal, he was expected to have as many as three surgeries, so you can appreciate the enormity of the decisions each step requires along the way.

Jeff Klauk has learned that the origin of his seizures is located in the left side of his brain.

Since having 108 electrodes inserted into his brain on April 20, Klauk has endured one grand mal seizure and handful of lesser magnitude events. While the source has been identified, the challenge of how to solve the problem remains. "The left side is a very important part of what the brain controls, and my family and I will have some important decision to make," he said. "But I've got great doctors and they do this kind of thing all the time and people come out fine all the time. ... It's a quality of life issue," he said. "I want to be able to do things like drive a car again. And I still believe I will have a career in golf." For the time being, he anticipates returning to competition on the Nationwide Tour this fall.
