With a two-way share of third place at the John Deere Classic, Jhonattan Vegas met the terms of his Major Medical Extension and will retain status for the remainder of the 2013-14 season.
The Venezuelan needed no worse than a two-way T5 to meets his goal with FedExCup points. With the 162.50 points collected, he exceeded it by 58.66. (For the record, to achieve the same objective with earnings, he needed no worse than a solo third, so he fell short of that by $8,680.) Vegas closed like a champ today, signed for a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 with six birdies, including on each of the trio of par 5s. (He hit 14 greens in regulation.) He played the par 5s in bogey-free 10-under of the week. With his MME in the rear-view mirror, he can focus on climbing the ladder in the FedExCup standings where he's now ranked 110th.

Jhonattan Vegas fired an 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the John Deere Classic to reach the 54-hole mark at 13-under 200.

Vegas circled seven birdies and squared a lone bogey on his first 16 holes at TPC Deere Run before his biggest highlight of the round. He found the green in two at the par-5 17th and converted the 16'6" eagle putt before ending his day with a par at 18. Noteable birdies included a 12'4" putt at the par-3 third and a 10'7" attempt on the par-4 14th. A steady putter has been the key to his week, gaining just shy of two strokes per round on average and ranking inside the top 10 in strokes gained.

Jhonattan Vegas turned in a pair of 1-over-par 71s at The Greenbrier Classic and missed the cut by two strokes.

He went just 3-for-26 in birdie chances while squaring five bogeys at The Old White TPC. It's just his fifth MC in 18 starts this season, but he arrived sitting 149th in FedExCup points. This short week also leaves him with three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $281,280 or 103.84 FedExCup points and retain status. Look for him again at next week's John Deere Classic.
Jul 4 - 6:56 PM

At 6-over-par 73-75=148, Jhonattan Vegas will miss the cut at the Quicken Loans National by three strokes.

Every strokes counts, but the Venezuelan can point directly at the par-4 18th hole in today's second round as the primary reason why he has the weekend off. It was his ninth of the day. After splitting the fairway, he found a greenside bunker on approach. His blast bounded over the green and into the water. After taking a drop, he'd eventually two-putt for a 7. Elsewhere in his two rounds, he traded six birdies with nine bogeys. It's just his fourth MC in 17 starts this season. He'll head to The Greenbrier Classic with four starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $281,280 or 103.84 FedExCup points and retain status.

Jhonattan Vegas has been added to the published field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

First alternates at the commitment deadline almost always gain entry, so this is no surprise. With two withdrawals today, Vegas gets his third start at Congressional in this tournament. He shared fourth place in his last visit in 2012, so his confidence may be elevated to take a sizable bite out of his Major Medical Extension if not swallow it whole.

Jhonattan Vegas closed out the Travelers Championship with an even-par 36-34=70 to post 6-under 274 and finish in a 11-way share of 31st place.

After a sporty 65 on Saturday, the Venezuelan was angling at his first top 10 on the PGA TOUR in nearly 24 months, but he erased an eagle and two birdies with four bogeys today. Vegas earned $32,296.36 and 35.00 FedExCup points for the trouble, but he's now down to five starts on his Major Medical Extension to collect $281,280 or 103.84 FedExCup points and retain status. He'll begin this coming week as the first alternate at the Quicken Loans National.
Jun 22 - 6:53 PM

Jhonattan Vegas blitzed TPC River Highlands for a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship.

After making the cut on the number and bogeying the par-4 first today, it looked like it would be a long day for the Venezuelan. Instead, Vegas started to stockpile birdies, four on the front and three more on the back. He had a love-hate relationship with his flat stick today, missing three bunnies inside five feet, but also rolling in seven putts between 5-9 feet. He's now 6-under 204 and will have a chance to earn his first top 10 since the 2012 AT&T National.
Jun 21 - 12:09 PM

Jhonattan Vegas completed the FedEx St. Jude Classic in 1-under-par 69-70-70-70=279, good for a share of 32nd place.

Vegas traded 10 birdies with nine bogeys for the pedestrian payday worth $28,841.82 and 34.00 FedExCup points. He remains stuck on one top 30 in 15 starts as he grinds through a Major Medical Extension. The Venezuelan has six starts to earn $313,576 or 138.84 FedExCup points and retain status. He's 151st in the FedExCup standings.
Jun 8 - 4:51 PM

Jhonattan Vegas was among the 10 trimmed at the 54-hole cut of the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

The Venezuelan survived the 36-hole cut on the number at 1-over 70-71=141, but fell two short of earning a tee time at Las Colinas on Sunday when he shot 3-over 73 in the third round. He collected $12,696.00 and 0.82 FedExCup points, but this was his sixth consecutive start without a top 40. He now has seven starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $342,418 or 172.84 FedExCup points and retain status.
May 18 - 7:15 PM

Jhonattan Vegas opened the HP Byron Nelson Championship with a bogey-free, even-par 35-35=70.

It's not often that any golfer anywhere authors a bogey-free even-par score, but the Venezuelan turned the trick at TPC Four Seasons-Las Colinas. The bonus was that he was the only golfer in the 156-man field that didn't suffer a bogey or worse on Thursday. He split seven (of 14) fairways, went 8-for-8 in scrambling and posted a strokes gained-putting split of 1.128. His longest par saves measured 10'8" at the par-3 second hole and 11'11" at the par-4 fourth. Vegas is five strokes adrift of Peter Hanson's overnight lead.
May 15 - 10:44 PM

Jhonattan Vegas missed the cut at the Wells Fargo Championship by one strokes.

Vegas was inside the cut line as he played the par-4 ninth hole today, his last of the round. Alas, he failed to get up and down from the greenside rough and bogeyed the hole. He completed 36 holes in 2-over-par 74-72=146. Today's misfortune leaves him with eight starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $355,114 or 173.66 FedExCup points and retain status. He arrived in North Carolina slotted 139th in the FedExCup standings even though he's cashed 10 times.
May 2 - 7:41 PM

Jhonattan Vegas was removed from the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

This will extend his time off to three weeks. Vegas is 10-for-12 on the season with just one top-35 finish. He's 131st in the FedExCup standings and still has nine starts to earn $355,114 or 173.66 FedExCup points and retain status.
Apr 22 - 10:45 AM

Jhonattan Vegas settled for a T72 at the Shell Houston Open, earning $12,480.00 and 0.95 FedExCup points.

After a sparkling 67 to open the tournament, the Venezuelan submitted respective rounds of 75, 76 and 78 to post 8-over 296. He led the field in driving distance (318.9 yards) but ranked T54 in greens hit and 68th in strokes gained-putting. He's 3-for-4 since a season-best T12 at The Honda Classic, but none of those paydays have gone for a top 40. Vegas now has nine starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to collect $355,114 or 173.66 FedExCup points and retain status.
Apr 6 - 5:14 PM

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
Apr 3 - 7:17 PM

At 7-over-par 78-73=151, Jhonattan Vegas will miss the cut at the Valero Texas Open.

The short story is the he couldn't recover from going 0-for-8 in par-breaker opportunities in the opening round while swallowing six bogeys. It's his first MC since the season-opening 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.
