D.J. Trahan won the 2008 Humana Challenge and returns this year in desperate need of a similar effort.

Trahan has the least amount of status since earning his way on the PGA TOUR for the 2005 season, playing with only past champion status. His ticket into this event is due to a provision that allows all winners of this event since 2004 a spot in the field. With further starts on the PGA TOUR expected to be few and far between, he must take advantage of this. He's made five of eight cuts in this event, sharing 56th last season.

D.J. Trahan gained entry into this week's Wyndham Championship this morning.

Trahan rose to first alternate after the first wave of field changes on Monday, but didn't gain entry until this morning when Scott Stallings withdrew. Trahan, who teed off on the first hole at 7:50 a.m. ET, ranks 174th in the FedExCup standings, so he knows what he needs to do this week to earn a spot in the Playoffs.

D.J. Trahan has been added to the published field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

He was the first of two alternates that gained entry today following withdrawals. Trahan is 8-for-13 on the season and sits 168th in FedExCup points. If there was a site where he was going to contend, it would have been last week at Annandale, but he tied for 62nd place.

D.J. Trahan turned in a 5-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

The 2006 champion has four top-12 finishes in this tournament, so it comes at a great time since he's 165th in FedExCup points, but he missed his first cut in six tries last year. Today he hit only 10 greens in regulation but rolled in eight birdies against three bogeys and finished with a strokes gained-putting clip north of 3.835. He's four strokes off the clubhouse lead.

D.J. Trahan suffered a bogey on his final hole of the third round of The Greenbrier Classic, signing for a 2-over-par 36-36=72 and missing the 54-hole cut on the number at 1-over 211.

Others joining Trahan on the bench for the final round are Scott Brown (211), Dicky Pride (211), Alistair Presnell (211), Neal Lancaster (212), Fabian Gomez (213), Gary Christian (213), Ben Crane (213), Erik Compton (215) and Brad Adamonis (216).

D.J. Trahan enters The Greenbrier Classic having made his last three cuts of 2013.

While Trahan didn’t crack the top 50 at Colonial or the FedEx St. Jude Classic, he does enter this week off a T30 at the Travelers. He has played in each of the first three stops at The Old White TPC, missing the cut in 2010 and 2011 before sharing 56th last season. He’s hovered around par in his eight rounds, never firing lower than 1-under-par 69 (three times) and never swallowing higher than a 2-over 72 (three times). It’s reasonable to think he will see the weekend, but it would be a surprise if he is in contention on Sunday.

D.J. Trahan has gained entry into this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. Trahan started the week as the fourth alternate. He was given a tee time when D.A. Points withdrew. Trahan has made just seven starts this season due to conditional status, but he's picked off two top 15s and sits 163rd in FedExCup points. He's 3-for-7 at Colonial with two top 20s, but he's missed all four of his cuts in his last five trips.

D.J. Trahan has been added to the published field of this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Trahan received a sponsor exemption to tee it up at TPC Louisiana. He's 1-for-3 on the track with a T9 in 2005. In limited action this season due to conditional status, he's cashed in three of five starts with two top 15s and sits 146th in FedExCup points.

D.J. Trahan managed a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to inch his way up the leaderboard to 4-under 212.

Trahan is playing this year out of the 126-150 category, meaning his starts are precious. That is likely why he's making his first start at TPC San Antonio. The course seems to fit his game, as he erased three bogeys with four birdies including a 14'4" effort on the par-4 17th and a 10'3" final dagger on the 18th. Should he finish the week inside the top 10, it would ensure him a start at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

D.J. Trahan has been added to the field of this week's Tampa Bay Championship.

The PGA TOUR's media department reported this. While Trahan has conditional status on the PGA TOUR, he secured a tee time at Copperhead with a top 10 in Puerto Rico. He's 3-for-6 in Tampa Bay with no top 35s.

D.J. Trahan looks to have locked up a top 10 at the Puerto Rico Open thanks to a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round bumping him up to 16-under 272.

Trahan circled eight birdies, including three in his last four holes, to just two bogeys at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Playing with conditional status, taking advantage of every opportunity is crucial for the two-time PGA TOUR winner. Though he is not currently listed in the field at the Tampa Bay Championship, should he hold on to a spot inside the top 10 he will earn a berth via his play and avoid an open qualifier on Monday.

D.J. Trahan heads to the Puerto Rico Open having never played this event.

Despite being a long-time PGA TOUR veteran, Trahan has always skipped this event since his status has never been an issue. Playing with conditional status this season changes his schedule to chase starts wherever they pop up. In the two events he’s played, he has a T56 at the Humana Challenge and a missed cut at Pebble Beach.

D.J. Trahan pulled the plug on his bid to earn a promotion in status on the PGA TOUR when he withdrew from the final stage of Q School after his second round.

Trahan went 4-over-par 75-73=148 at PGA West this week. That placed him outside the top 155 in the 172-man field. He'll settle for conditional status in 2013 for finishing 132nd on the money list this year.

D.J. Trahan fell short of securing a 2013 PGA TOUR card when he turned in an even-par 38-34=72 in the final round of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic, finishing the week at 7-under 281.

Trahan earned the final card due to a 22-foot birdie putt on his final hole at Disney last year, but couldn't recapture the magic this time around. He entered the week 130th on the money list, likely needing a top 15 or top-20 finish to avoid Q School this time around. With that goal missed, he will prepare for Q School.
