Wes Short, Jr. is listed in the published field of next week's Greenbrier Classic.

He's just 3-for-11 on the year and entered the week ranked 200th in FedExCup points. If he doesn't withdraw prior to his tee time in the opening round at The Old White TPC where he'd be making his debut, his appearance will count as the final start on his Major Medical Extension. To retain status, he needs to earn $672,626. The worst he could finish and achieve that goal would be with a solo second worth $680,000. Short of that, he would secure conditional status (for which he needs $386,643) with no worse than a solo third that pays $428,400. (A two-way T3 would be worth $365,400.) If Short, Jr. fails to meet the secondary objective, he will be demoted into the Past Champions category.

Short, Jr. landed 22 greens in regulation but converted only three birdies against six bogeys and a double. It's his eighth MC in 11 starts this season. More importantly, it leaves him with just one start remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $672,626 and retain status. That would likely require him to win, which, of course, would elevate him into a much higher Priority Ranking and provide multi-year exemption. However, should he bank $386,643, he'll secure conditional status for the remainder of the season.
