José Coceres missed the 54-hole cut at the Puerto Rico Open by two strokes and finished alone in 77th place.
He completed three rounds in even-par 73-70-73=216 to earn $6,510.00. It was his third payday in six starts this season, but it was his last via a Major Medical Extension. He fell short of fulfilling its terms to retain status by $540,703. Coceres also landed $225,090 below the minimum required to secure conditional status. Therefore, he'll tumble into the Past Champion category where he will reside probably for the remainder of his career. The Argentine is 50 years old and will likely bide his time on the Champions Tour and abroad. Sun, Mar 9, 2014 06:09:00 PM

José Coceres posted a pair of 2-over-par 72s at The Honda Classic and will miss the cut.

The 50-year-old Argentine split 13 (of 14) fairways today but landed only seven greens in regulation. Normally, those totals are reversed. While he buried birdies form 23'10" at the par-4 fourth hole and 26'3" at the par-4 16th, he swallowed a bogey-4 at No. 5 and a triple-bogey 7 at 9. The MC leaves him with one start on his Major Medical Extension to earn $547,213 and retain status. Unless he withdraws prior to the tournament, he'll burn that final opportunity at next week's Puerto Rico Open where only a victory would secure fully exempt status moving forward since the total purse is just $3.5 million. To net conditional status for the remainder of the year, Coceres needs to bank $232,419. He would achieve that with a three-way T2 (worth $261,333.33) or a solo third ($238,000.00). Short of that and he'll get demoted to the Past Champion category, which means he'll likely stick with status only on the Champions Tour.

José Coceres completed 72 holes of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba in 5-under-par 68-69-72-70=279, good for a T49 worth $14,660.00.

He ranked last of the 77 that finished four rounds in distance off the tee (250.8 yards), but ranked inside the top 25 in fairways hit, greens in regulation, putting and birdies. However, Coceres also squared 11 bogeys and a double to limit the noise. He's now down to two starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $547,213 and retain status. Look for the 50-year-old to burn through his remaining status, hope for the best, and then resort to a future on the Champions Tour.

José Coceres completed 36 holes of The McGladrey Classic in 2-over-par 69-73=142 to miss the cut on the number.

The Argentine found four birdies in his second round, but swallowed three bogeys and two doubles to clinch the weekend off. It leaves him with three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $561,873 and retain status. Coceres is scheduled to return to the OHL Classic at Mayakoba next week. He hasn't competed in the event since 2009. He was the runner-up in the inaugural edition at El Camaleón in 2007.

José Coceres posted 10-under-par 67-70-67-70=274 at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to finish in a six-way share of 30th place worth $36,450.00.

Saturday marked the four-and-a-half-year anniversary since Coceres last earned a paycheck on the PGA TOUR (2009 Heritage). He finished the week in Las Vegas ranked 10th in strokes gained-putting (1.104) and circled 21 birdies. It leaves him with four starts on his Major Medical Extension to bank $561,873 and retain status.

José Coceres chased his opening 78 at the Open with another in today's second round.

Needless to say, he'll miss the cut by a mile, but he's back in the books. For the week, he hit only 16 greens in regulation and circled two birdies while succumbing to 12 bogeys and two doubles. He's now scheduled to take his talents to next week's Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with five starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $598,323 and retain status.

José Coceres shot a 7-over-par 38-40=78 in his opening round of the Open.

He went 1-for-6 in birdie chances, the lone conversion measuring 18'4" at the par-4 17th hole, but it was overshadowed by eight bogeys. The Argentine split only six (of 14) fairways, too. It was his first official round on the PGA TOUR since the 2009 HP Byron Nelson Championship.

José Coceres is listed in the published field of next week's Open.

The 50-year-old hasn't teed it up on the PGA TOUR since the 2009 HP Byron Nelson Championship due to extended complications related to an injury in his left wrist. However, he's fared well in a pair of starts in his native South America, winning an event in 2011 and returning to share runner-up honors last December. He still has six starts remaining on a Major Medical Extension to earn $598,323 and retain status, but doesn't warrant any fantasy consideration.

Defending champion Jose Coceres tied for second place at the Olivos Golf Classic-Copa Personal on the PGA TOUR Latinoamerica today.

In what was the penultimate event of the inaugural season for the newly aligned circuit, the 49-year-old Argentine finished two strokes adrift of fellow countryman, Ariel Canete, who posted 9-under-par 275 to secure his second victory of the season and expand on his lead in the Order of Merit. Coceres hadn't played competitively since his title at Olivos Golf Club 12 months ago. If he ever returns to the PGA TOUR, he should still have six starts remaining on a Major Medical Extension to earn $598,323 and retain status. He hasn't played the PGA TOUR since May 2009 due to a wrist injury.

Jose Coceres went wire-to-wire to win the Torneo de Maestros Copa Personal on the Tour de las Americas, winning by four strokes over fellow Argentine Ricardo Gonzalez.

Coceres closed with a 3-over-par 38-36=74 but had ample breathing room thanks to a 66-69-67 start. The field included such notables as Andres Romero, who finished alone in third place, and five-time Champions Tour winner Eduardo Romero, who shared 12th place in Argentina on Sunday. Coceres hasn't played anywhere since the 2009 Byron Nelson due to a wrist injury. Whenever the 48-year-old return to the PGA TOUR, he'll have six starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $598,323 and retain status. If this weekend's appearance was his way to announce his return, then he might make for a sneaky hired gun in fantasy formats in 2012.

Coceres hasn't teed it up since withdrawing after one round of the Byron Nelson with a wrist injury, and he's cashed in just one of six events all year. At the Buick, he's made just one of five cuts (T-43, 2002). He has six starts on his Major Medical extension to earn $598,323.

Jose Coceres withdrew during his second round of the HP Byron Nelson Championship, citing a wrist injury.

Coceres went out in 41 and was an aggregate 12-over-par through 27 holes when he walked off. The wrist injury is nothing new for the Argentine, who called it a season because of it last year after the AT&T National in early July, leaving him with a Major Medical extension for 2009. The WD drops him to six starts on the medical to earn $598,323.
