Scott Gardiner arrived at the midpoint of the Wyndham Championship in even-par 68-72=140, missing the cut by three strokes.
Gardiner hit 25 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies at Sedgefield this week, but he erased the handiwork with three bogeys and two doubles. This was the last of three starts provided on a Minor Medical Extension this season. He missed the cut in each. So, for the record, the Aussie failed to meet its terms by $503,075 or 313.147 FedExCup points. He also fell short of securing conditional status by 197.907 FedExCup points. Since the Wyndham marked the last event of the regular season and since Minor Medicals don't carry over, this week's commitment was a use-or-lose decision. Aug 21 - 7:34 PM

Scott Gardiner is scheduled to compete in this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Aussie has been sitting on one start remaining on his Minor Medical Extension since missing the cut in New Orleans nearly four months ago. He's 0-for-2 on the season. Because the Wyndham is the final event of 2014-15, his only target to be fully exempt above the reshuffle next season is the top 125 in FedExCup points or earnings. Short of that, Gardiner is looking to crack the top 150 in FedExCup points to attain conditional status or the top 200 just to qualify for the Web.com Tour Finals. He's currently 199th in earnings on the secondary circuit, so barring an unbelievable week at Sedgefield, he'll be headed to Q School.

Scott Gardiner has opted for a week of over a spot in the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Had he played, he'd have burned the last start of his Minor Medical Extension. To earn a promotion to the Major Medical category, Gardiner would need to clear $503,075 or 313.147 FedExCup points. Short of that tall task, he'd secure conditional status with 197.907 FedExCup points. He's 0-for-2 on the PGA TOUR this season, so it's not like he's projecting to threaten the terms of the medical. The Aussie has also cashed twice in eight starts on the Web.com Tour and sits 164th on its money list, but at least his chances of returning to the PGA TOUR on a full-time basis are more realistic via that conduit.

Scott Gardiner reached the halfway point of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in 10-over-par 80-74=154 and will miss the cut.

This was just his second start of the season (MC, Pebble Beach). Gardiner split 20 (of 28) fairways, which isn't hard at TPC Louisiana, but landed only 19 greens in regulation. He erased four birdies (two in each round) with eight bogeys and three doubles. The Aussie now has just one start on his Minor Medical Extension to bank $503,075 or 313.147 FedExCup points for a promotion to the Major Medical category. He's also 197.907 FedExCup points shy of securing conditional status as a secondary goal.

Scott Gardiner missed the cut at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am by nine strokes.

Gardiner shot 3-over-par 70-71-77=218, concluding his rotation at Spyglass Hill Golf Club where he swallowed four bogeys and two doubles that wiped away three birdies. This was his first start on the PGA TOUR since last summer's John Deere Classic. The Aussie finished 187th in the FedExCup standings, but was given a Minor Medical Extension for a thyroid condition. After this week's MC, he has only two starts to earn $503,075 or 313.147 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Scott Gardiner was given a Minor Medical Extension due to a thyroid condition.

The Aussie went just 6-for-18 with one top-35 finish in 2013-14. He's been given three starts to bank $503,075 or 313.147 FedExCup points and get promoted to the Major Medical category. Considering that his career earnings are $428,915 in two seasons on the PGA TOUR and he's without a top 10 in 41 starts, the likelihood of him fulfilling the terms of the medical is low. Do not invest.

Scott Gardiner pieced together a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in his opening round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open, finishing three strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Gardiner's appearance in the first-ever WinCo is his first anywhere since an illness forced him out before his second round of the John Deere Classic six weeks ago. Today's return made it seem like he had zero rust to shed. He split 10 (of 13) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation en route to four birdies against one bogey. The Aussie will be attempting to regain his PGA TOUR status at the Web.com Tour Finals that commence next week.

Scott Gardiner is listed in the published field of next week's WinCo Foods Portland Open on the Web.com Tour.

The Aussie hasn't competed anywhere since withdrawing during the John Deere Classic with an illness. However, after appearing in the field at this week's Wyndham Championship, he was removed on Monday. So, either the illness is quite serious or there's more to it if not originally misclassified. Gardiner will qualify for the Web.com Tour Finals, but he won't be a favorite to survive.

Scott Gardiner has been removed from the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Well, he'd have been a wing and a prayer to crack the top 125 in FedExCup points. Currently 186th, the Aussie will settle for a spot in the Web.com Tour Finals. He hadn't competed since the John Deere Classic where he withdrew prior to the second round with an illness. Overall, he went just 6-for-18 with on top 35 in his return trip to the PGA TOUR.

Scott Gardiner was removed from the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Gardiner had to withdraw prior to his second round of the John Deere with an illness. He's currently 182nd in FedExCup points and 180th in earnings. Suffice it to say that the Web.com Tour Finals are reserving a spot.

Scott Gardiner is listed in the published field of next week's RBC Canadian Open.

The Aussie had to call it quits before his second round in the Quad Cities last week due to an illness. As a result, he fell to 180th in both FedExCup points and earnings. So, while a spot in the Web.com Tour Finals is all but a lock, he can still make a move toward the Playoffs or at least conditional status as a safety net.

Scott Gardiner withdrew prior to his second round of the John Deere Classic due to an illness.

He opened with a 7-over-par 40-38=78 with three birdies, five bogeys, one double and a triple. The Aussie is in no position to shoot high numbers at this stage of the season, much less withdraw from tournaments, so this is a tough pill to swallow. Today's decision drops him to 6-for-18 on the season. He entered the week just inside the top 180 in both FedExCup points and earnings.

Scott Gardiner is back in town for his second crack at The Greenbrier Classic.

The Aussie missed the cut in 2013 on his first trip to The Old White TPC. His 2013-14 season isn't going all that well, ranking 176th in the FedExCup standings and having made five of 16 cuts. He's missed three of his last four cuts, so something has to improve quickly if he is to retain his status for 2014-15.

Scott Gardiner missed the cut in his FedEx St. Jude Classic debut but found his way back this week for another crack at TPC Southwind.

The Aussie averages just under 286 yards off the tee, ranking 120th on TOUR, and ranks 153rd in strokes gained-putting. Overpowering TPC Southwind has proven to be the best method of success in the past, but a remarkable week putting can also do the trick. Gardiner possesses neither skill, and it will take a statistical aberration for him to contend this week.
