Jhonattan Vegas submitted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 for his opening round of the Shell Houston Open.

The further we get from that T12 at The Honda Classic, the more it looks like the exception to an otherwise lackluster season, but he reminded us today that he's ready to validate. Vegas landed 14 greens in regulation at the Golf Club of Houston today and circled seven birdies, including tries from 13'4" at the 10th hole and 14'1" at 5. He signed his card sitting two strokes off the clubhouse lead and with a strokes gained-putting clip north of 2.185. 2.192

It's his first MC since the season-opening Frys.com Open, thus ending a consecutive cuts made streak at nine. Vegas now has 10 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $367,594 or 174.61 FedExCup points and retain status.

Jhonattan Vegas settled for 69th place at the Puerto Rico Open.

Despite a closing 74 at PGA National last Sunday, Vegas arrived on the island with some mojo and fantasy support. Alas, he failed to deliver and turned another 74 today to fall 12 spots on the leaderboard. In eight final rounds this season, he's been over par seven times and owns a scoring average of 73.25. His week in Puerto Rico yielded just $7,070.00 and 2.00 FedExCup points. Back on the mainland for this week's Valspar Championship, the Venezuelan now has 12 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $386,070 or 198.61 FedExCup points and retain status.

Jhonattan Vegas completed The Honda Classic in 4-under-par 70-66-66-74=276, good for a share of 12th place worth $94,800.00 and 54.17 FedExCup points.

While he went off in the penultimate pairing at PGA National today, this is easily his best finish on the PGA TOUR since a T4 at the 2012 AT&T National 20 months ago. He ranked T17 in greens in regulation and seventh in strokes gained-putting for the week. More importantly, he's risen to 103rd in the FedExCup standings. Vegas will head to the Puerto Rico Open with 13 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $393,140 or 200.61 FedExCup points and retain status.

Jhonattan Vegas lit up PGA National for a third-round 4-under-par 34-32=66 at The Honda Classic and takes over the clubhouse lead at 8-under 202.

Vegas netted seven birdies and gave back a trio of bogeys on the afternoon. All aspects of his game were in good form on Saturday, as he split 10 (of 14) fairways, landed 12 GIR, with the putter shining the brightest. He putted to a 1.417 average and gained over three strokes on the field with the flat stick. The winner of the 2011 Humana Challenge is playing on a Major Medical Extension, so a big finish on Sunday would be huge in terms of taking a chunk out of his $487,940 or 254.78 FedExCup points remaining requirement.
Mar 1 - 4:16 PM

Jhonattan Vegas tied for 40th place at the Northern Trust Open at 2-under-par 70-69-71-72=282.

The Venezuelan ranked inside the top 20 in both fairways and greens hit but 39th in strokes gained-putting and T42 in par breakers. He's now 6-for-7 on the season but today's finish matches his previous best (Shriners). Nevertheless, Vegas pockets $26,130.00 and 29 FedExCup points to take another chunk out of his Major Medical Extension. He now has 14 starts to earn $487,940 or 254.78 FedExCup points and retain status.
Feb 16 - 7:40 PM

Jhonattan Vegas completed 72 holes of the Waste Management Phoenix Open in 2-under-par 71-66-75-70=282, good for a share of 48th place.

This is his fifth straight payday, although he's done no better than a T40 at the Shriners. He picked up $15,772.80 and 21.00 FedExCup points at TPC Scottsdale, thus leaving 15 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $514,070 or 283.78 FedExCup points and retain status.
Feb 2 - 7:27 PM

Jhonattan Vegas shot 3-over-par 68-75-74-74=291 at the Farmers Insurance Open, good for a share of 59th place worth $13,176.00 and 9.00 FedExCup points.

We last checked in on the Venezuelan following his bogey-free opener on the North Course at Torrey Pines. While his highest score came in the second round on the South where he traded three birdies with six bogeys, he converted on only two of 22 chances to break par on the weekend. Vegas settled for one birdie in each of the weekend loops. He now has 16 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $529,843 or 304.78 FedExCup points and retain status. Look for him again at this week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.
Jan 26 - 7:58 PM

Jhonattan Vegas twirled a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-36=68 on the North Course at Torrey Pines in his opening round of the Farmers Insurance Open.

We've seen this before, and multiple times already this season. He's opened with a sub-70 in each of his last three starts but came away with nothing better than a T40 at the Shriners. Nevertheless, he's not throwing in the towel either, of course. Today he went 3-for-3 in scrambling and connected birdies at holes 6-9 to complement pars elsewhere. He signed his card sitting four strokes in arrears of Stewart Cink's overnight lead.
Jan 23 - 7:23 PM

Jhonattan Vegas pulled up the rear at the Humana Challenge, settling for outright possession of 84th place at 5-under-par 69-71-67-76=283.

He was one of 15 golfers to survive the cut on the number, and then signed for the highest round of any of the 84 golfers that played on Sunday. Vegas padded his pockets with $9,804.00 and 0.72 FedExCup points for what was his third consecutive payday. It leaves him with 17 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $543,019 or 313.78 FedExCup points and retain status. He's committed to this week's Farmers Insurance Open where he tied for third in his rookie season of 2011 but missed the cut a year ago. It was the penultimate start (missed cut) before he sat out seven months after having surgery on his left shoulder.

Jhonattan Vegas claimed the 2011 Humana Challenge and returns this season in need of some cash.

Vegas is playing on a Major Medical Extension, so the more money he can grab the better. His 2011 win came in a playoff over Bill Haas and Gary Woodland, but Vegas missed the cut in his 2012 defense and again in 2013. While he flashed plenty of star power in that special week, he's yet to come close to backing it up and fulfilling his potential.
