James Driscoll reached the midpoint of the Web.com Tour Championship in 13-over-par 74-79=153 and will miss the cut.
At the time he signed his card, he sat last of the 125 projected to complete 36 holes at Dye's Valley Course at TPC Sawgrass. Driscoll opened the Web.com Tour Finals with a T12 at the Hotel Fitness Championship, but trailed with a withdrawal before his second round at the Chiquita Classic and an MC in Columbus, Ohio, last week. So, he will not secure one of the 25 PGA TOUR cards up for grabs this weekend. It's a disappointing conclusion to a forgettable year. He sat 68th in the FedExCup standings in mid-March, but closed the season 2-for-11 with no top 60s and finished outside the top 150 in points and earnings. He's never cracked the season-ending top 100 in either, but maintained membership for seven consecutive seasons. Now without any status -- he's survived 116 cuts, so he's 34 short of qualifying for Veteran Membership -- Driscoll is headed back to the Web.com Tour where he hasn't played since 2007. He'll turn 37 years of age on Oct. 9. Sep 19 - 1:21 PM

James Driscoll missed the cut on the number at the Wyndham Championship and it ultimately cost him conditional status on the PGA TOUR for 2014-15.

Entering the week ranked 150th in the FedExCup standings, it was a virtual certainty that someone would replace Driscoll inside the top 150 when he missed the cut. Ending the year 155th, he must successfully navigate the Web.com Tour Finals if he is to earn his PGA TOUR card for 2014-15. Having missed 10 of his last 13 cuts, with one WD, his game seems to be in terrible shape for the important run.

James Driscoll returned to the PGA TOUR with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship.

He's been mysteriously absent since withdrawing after an opening 78 in Canada three weeks ago. Now with his back up against the wall at 150th in the FedExCup standings, Driscoll has everything to gain at Sedgefield this week. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, trading two birdies with one bogey along the way. This is just his fourth round under par in his last 13 starts dating back to early April.

James Driscoll is listed in the published field of next week's Wyndham Championship.

We don't know why he withdrew before his second round of the RBC Canadian Open two weeks ago, but he hasn't played well in months. In his last 12 starts, he's cashed just twice, neither going for a top 60. As a result, he's faded to 150th in the FedExCup standings and 160th on the money list. He seemed destined for the Web.com Tour Finals.

James Driscoll withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open prior to his second round.

Driscoll was slated to go off the 10th tee at 8:20 a.m. local time. He opened with 8-over-par 38-40=78 with one birdie, seven bogeys and a double. He hit only nine greens in regulation. This is the first time in 237 PGA TOUR starts that he's withdrawn during a tournament. (Three were as an amateur.) If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you.

James Driscoll makes his seventh start at this week's John Deere Classic.

Driscoll will look to flip the script on course history, as he's missed the cut in four of his six attempts at the John Deere Classic. He enters the week ranked 142nd in the FedExCup standings, needing to make a final push in the six weeks leading up to the Playoffs. With poor course history and missed cuts in eight of his last 10 events, things are not looking up for the University of Virginia product.

James Driscoll enters this week's Travelers Championship ranked 125th in the FedExCup standings.

Driscoll is going through a legitimate slump right now, with six missed cuts in his last seven events. We've seen a steady decline in his driving distance over the last four years, with a decrease of 15.9 yards since his 2011 campaign. Lucky for Driscoll, this is one of the shortest tracks on TOUR and that length will not be needed. His track record at TPC River Highlands is not too shabby, either, with four top 35s in his last five attempts. It looks like a great opportunity for Driscoll to end his recent slump.

James Driscoll has been removed from the published field of this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

He ended an 0-for-5 slide with a T64 at the Byron Nelson, but Driscoll still fell nine spots to 113th in the FedExCup standings. Today's decision secures his first week off in the last six.

James Driscoll enters his ninth HP Byron Nelson Championship having made seven of his previous eight cuts.

His best finish was a tie for eighth in 2011, backing that up with a T19 in 2012 and a T33 last year. Something has to give, as he's missed each of his last five cuts this season. When dissecting the stat sheet from his last five starts, it's clear the ball-striking has suffered.

James Driscoll will try and score his first top-50 finish in his eighth RBC Heritage.

While Driscoll is no stranger to Harbour Town Golf Links, he's been a slow learner. After missing the cut in his first three attempts, he has posted finishes of T73-T56-T56-T88. He hasn't missed an edition since 2008, so something keeps bringing him back to Hilton Head. Perhaps it's the relaxed atmosphere of the South Carolina coast.

James Driscoll has been removed from the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Driscoll has never played Bay Hill in competition, so that fact will remain unchanged. He has three top 25s among nine paydays this season. It's the kind of persistent success that has him 68th in FedExCup points. He hasn't finished better than 103rd in any previous season.

James Driscoll grabbed six birdies en route to a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the the third round of the Valspar Championship.

Driscoll picked up four of his birdies on his front nine at the Copperhead Course, handing back just one bogey over that span. On the inward nine he traded two birdies for two bogeys. His best finish in eight attempts at this event was a T21 last year, so he's clearly growing more comfortable with the difficult layout.

James Driscoll stubbed his toe to the tune of a birdie-free 3-over-par 37-38=75 in the third round of the Puerto Rico Open after entering the day with the lead.

Driscoll spread three bogeys across his 18 holes, with his 2.182 putting average making the problem easily identifiable on the surface. The real issue was likely dealing with the prospect of his first PGA TOUR win in his 224th career start. It looks like that day will have to wait, as his 9-under 207 has him in a tie for 20th and seven off the lead with just 18 to play.

James Driscoll throttled Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of the Puerto Rico Open to assume outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 12-under 132.

He circled an eagle and seven birdies today en route to tying the course record carded four times previously, including his own in the opening round in 2011. It's one shy of his personal mark on the PGA TOUR. Driscoll played the par 5s in 5-under to extend his scoring on the quartet to 9-under on the week. He's eagled the par-5 fifth both times through. He arrived on the island ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings despite having only two top 25s, neither of which going for a top 15. He's gone 223 PGA TOUR starts without a win and hasn't finished better than 100th in earnings, and that was during his rookie season of 2005.
Mar 7 - 3:43 PM

James Driscoll posted a 3-under-par 37-32=69 in his opening round of the Puerto Rico Open.

He split only seven (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, but eked out an eagle (at the par-5 fifth hole) and four birdies to negate the effects of three bogeys. This is his fifth consecutive sub-70 to open a tournament and eighth in 11 starts. He arrived on the island ranked 67th in the FedExCup standings. He's currently three shots off the clubhouse lead.
