Brian Gay has yet to begin his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign due to a thumb injury.
Gay competed in 26 events last season, including the final regular season event at the Wyndham Championship, failing to crack the top 70 in his last six starts. It was becoming clear that something was amiss when he decided to take a seat on the sidelines. His current return is unknown at this point. He is fully exempt this season thanks to his win at the 2013 Humana Challenge. At this rate, he is trending towards a Major Medical Extension for 2015-16 if he fails to retain his status.

Brian Gay's caddie, Kip Henley, alerted his followers on Twitter that his boss is sidelined with a thumb injury.

Henley is a character, so the content of his tweet will not surprise those familiar with him. He wrote, "Anyone needing a scrub caddy call me! Brian Gays [sic] thumb is still sore. Who needs a caddy or an expensive yard mower guy." Henley has alluded to Gay being injured, but hadn't specified anything until now. Of course, Gay dealt with a sore thumb over the summer, so that it's still a problem is a concern. He's fully exempt through 2014-15 by virtue of his victory at the 2013 Humana Challenge.

At 2-over-par 74-68=142, Brian Gay missed the cut at the Wyndham Championship by four strokes.

Gay converted eight birdies at Sedgefield this week, but he also squared 10 bogeys to extend his drought without a payday to four consecutive starts. Prior to it, he sat 112th in the FedExCup standings (following a T71 at the Travelers Championship), but will finish outside the top 125 for the first time in the eight-year history of the Playoffs. Gay is fully exempt for 2014-15 via his win at the 2013 Humana Challenge, so expect him to enjoy a break before the season begins at the Frys.com Open in October. Other notables that missed the cut today include: 139--Hideki Matsuyama; Brian Harman; Robert Karlsson ... 140--Will MacKenzie ... 141--two-time champ Davis Love III (1992, 2006); Scott Stallings ... 142--2010 champ Arjun Atwal; Rafael Cabrera-Bello ... 143--Chesson Hadley; Matteo Manassero ... 144--two-time champ Rocco Mediate (1993, 2002); Charles Howell III ... 147--Stephen Gallacher.

Brian Gay settled for a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open.

Back inside the ropes since suffering a thumb injury that forced him to withdraw after one round at Greenbrier three weeks ago, Gay managed to find only half of the (14) fairways and greens in regulation at Royal Montreal today. He curled in just one birdie, that from 11'4" at the par-4 15th hole, but wiped it away with three bogeys. He's trying to end a drought without a top 40 that has extended 16 starts, but it doesn't seem likely this week.

Brian Gay is listed in the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

Gay was sidelined after one round of The Greenbrier Classic with a thumb injury, and then withdrew early from last week's John Deere. He hasn't had a top 40 since the Sony Open in Hawaii, so it's wise to let him return without you on board.

Brian Gay has been removed from the published field of this week's John Deere Classic.

He would have been bouncing off a withdrawal after one round at Greenbrier due to a thumb injury. You're unlikely to miss him, however, as he's gone 16 consecutive starts sans a top 40.

Brian Gay is listed in the published field of next week's John Deere Classic.

Gay called it quits after one round of The Greenbrier Classic due to a thumb injury, so we'll slap a question mark beside his appearance in the Quad Cities. He had a trio of top 20s at TPC Deere Run but none since a T9 in 2011. Besides, with the injury and his form over the last several months, you wouldn't be looking at his potential anyway.

Brian Gay withdrew after his opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, citing a thumb injury.

He signed for an 8-over-par 38-40=78 that featured only one birdie to help ease the sting of four bogeys, one double and a triple. If this has been an ongoing issue, then it could explain his drought without a top 40 that has now extended to 16 consecutive starts. He's 114th in FedExCup points, but fully exempt through next season via his victory at last year's Humana Challenge.

Brian Gay will look to crack the riddle known as TPC River Highlands at this week's Travelers Championship.

Gay has taken on TPC River Highlands on 11 occasions, failing to record a single top 25. This is perplexing considering the manageable length of the course, and his ability to climb the leaderboard (111 career top 25s). It wouldn't be surprising if Gay finally figures things out here, but it's more likely that the course just doesn't fit his eye.

Brian Gay is making his 15th appearance in this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

It comes as no surprise that the short-hitter has found success at the shorter, traditional Colonial Country Club. Gay is 11-for-14 at the Crowne Plaza Invite, sneaking into the top 35 on seven occasions. He needs just $160,954.73 to eclipse the seven figure mark of Crowne Plaza career earnings.

Brian Gay will try and tackle Quail Hollow Club at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Gay has limited success at Quail Hollow with none of his 12 rounds going any lower than 1-under-par. With the length of the course, the upside is very limited for Gay, who ranks 203rd in driving distance and 197th in drives over 300+ yards.

Brian Gay led off the the third round of the Shell Houston Open with a 1-under-par 36-35=71, finishing the afternoon at 4-under 212.

Tee times were moved up on Saturday to account for a heightened chance of rain and thunderstorms in the afternoon at the Golf Club of Houston. As an added perk, preferred lies were also in play. Gay opened with 11 pars before drawing blood with birdies from 9'7" and 3'7" on the par-4 12th and par-5 13th holes, but suffered a setback with his lone bogey on the par-4 18th to end the day.

Brian Gay blew up for a 4-over-par 40-35=75 in his opening round of the Valspar Championship.

Gay withdrew early from his last two commitments and hasn't competed since missing the cut at the Northern Trust Open a month ago. Today at Copperhead, he found only eight greens in regulation and converted two birdies (the longer measuring 13'1" at the par-4 seventh hole). He also fanned on four tries inside nine feet and amassed four bogeys and a double.

Brian Gay is listed in the published field of next week's Valspar Championship.

Well, even though he's pegged it in every year since 2000 (excluding the 2001 cancellation due to the events of Sept. 11), Gay has been a bit banged up of late, specifically dealing with a sore neck. If he plays, it would be his first action since missing the cut at the Northern Trust Open nearly a month ago.

Brian Gay has been removed from the published field of this week's Puerto Rico Open.

He would have been returning from a sore neck anyway. So, given that he'd be flying all the way to Puerto Rico despite ranking a comfortable 53rd in the FedExCup standings in an event with a reduced number of points on the table, it's addition by subtraction in the context that he can now continue to rest and recover. In fact, this will be his third week off in a row.
