On Monday morning, John Huston was bumped from the field of the Turning Stone Championship.

As expected, Huston was bumped from the field of the Turning Stone after failing to meet the terms of his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category). He now falls down the priority list into the Past Champions category.

With The Greenbrier Classic complete, the official results have revealed that John Huston earned $10,620.00 for his T81/MDF finish.

We relayed on Saturday that Huston would fall into the Past Champions category, but this entry will archive the final results of his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category), of which he fell short by $476,288. He was also $268,115 low of qualifying for conditional status for the remainder of 2010. Although we were led to believe that his start at last week's Canadian Open was his final exemption via his MME, we can confirm that the Greenbrier does it. Huston is committed to the Turning Stone Resort Championship, but he's likely to get bumped from the field of 132 once the first wave of changes are made on Monday morning.

Rotoworld learned today that John Huston is making his final start on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) at this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Since it was originally believed that Huston had exhausted his allotment of starts via his MME at the Canadian Open, suspicion arose when the Greenbrier field was released and he gained entry on merit. He didn't receive a sponsor exemption for the Greenbrier and his pecking order in the Past Champions category wouldn't have allowed him in without it. Turns out that while his tournaments results page at PGATOUR.com illustrates a withdrawal at the Mayakoba Golf Classic, he did not start that event, thus allowing for the start this week. He needs no worse than a two-way T2 at the Greenbrier to get elevated to the MME category. (A solo third wouldn't be enough.) Huston can secure conditional status for the remainder of 2010 with a four-way T3 or solo fourth. Short of that and he will, indeed, tumble into the Past Champions category.

John Huston completed the RBC Canadian Open in 6-under-par 274, good for a share of 30th place worth $30,308.58.

This was the veteran's final start on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category), and it's his best finish on the PGA TOUR since a T19 at last year's Bob Hope Classic, exactly 18 months ago today. However, he finishes $486,908 short of meeting its terms to get elevated to the MME category, and $278,735 shy of securing conditional status. (He needed no worse than a solo second in Ontario for conditional status.) Huston will now slide into the Past Champions category. He turns 50 years of age on June 1 of next year.

John Huston finished 36 holes of the John Deere Classic in 1-over-par 69-74=143, and will miss the cut by five strokes.

Huston had six birdies and seven bogeys this week to miss his fifth straight cut. This leaves him with one start on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) to earn $517,217 and get elevated to the MME category. If he falls short but manages to bank $309,044, he will secure conditional status for the remainder of 2010. He hasn't earned that much in a single event since finishing third in the 2004 Houston Open.

John Huston completed 36 holes of the Travelers Championship in 6-over-par 74-72=146, and will miss the cut.

Huston hit just 23 greens and still required 66 putts. His fourth consecutive missed cut leaves him with two starts on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) to earn $517,217 and get elevated to the MME category.

John Huston shot 3-over-par 73-70=143 at the St. Jude Classic, and will miss the cut.

Huston hit 23 greens but still needed 59 putts in his two loops of TPC Southwind. He's now 1-for-8 on the year and is down to three starts on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) to earn $517,217 and get elevated to the Major Medical category.

John Huston completed 36 holes of the HP Byron Nelson Championship in 2-over-par 72-70=142, and will miss the cut.

This is his fifth missed cut in seven tournaments this year. He's cashed once (T76/MDF, Transitions) and has withdrawn once (Mayakoba). It leaves him with four starts on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) to earn $517,217 and get elevated to the Major Medical category.

John Huston shot 6-over-par 77-73=150 at the Valero Texas Open and will miss the cut.

Huston hit just 20 GIR and still required 59 putts. It leaves him with five starts on his Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) to earn $517,217 and get elevated to the Major Medical category. He'll try again at next week's HP Byron Nelson Championship, where he has failed to cash in his last four starts (dating back to 2004).

John Huston missed the secondary cut and finished in a tie for 76th place at the Transitions Championship.

Huston is playing with a Major Medical Extension (Q School/Nationwide Tour category) and today's check for $9,990 now leaves him with six starts to earn $517,217 to be elevated to Major Medical status for the rest of the season.
Sun, Mar 21, 2010 08:17:00 PM

John Huston posted a 4-over-par 37-38=75 in the opening round of the Transitions Championship.

This is the first action Huston has seen since a withdrawal at the Mayakoba. He's a member at Innisbrook, and he said this week that he would have needed to get off to a fast start to feel good about his chances. In fact, he was 1-under through six holes but a cold putter emerged. He hit only 10 greens in regulation and still needed 30 strokes on them.
Thu, Mar 18, 2010 07:02:00 PM

John Huston is listed in the published field of next week's Transitions Championship.

Huston doesn't have any fantasy value in formats that reward good play, but he is a member at Innisbrook, which hosts the Transitions, so it might be a good week for duffer leagues to abstain.
