Brian Davis has been out of action for 28 weeks and when he returns to action will have five starts on a medical extension to earn 431 FedExCup points or $690,010.
The Englishman went 1-for-9 last season while fighting through neck and back pains. That includes a pair of mid-tournament WDs before ultimately calling it quits for the season in early May. These injuries are nothing new for Davis who sports a lofty number of mid-tournament WDs over his career (14). The 42-year-old has earned an impressive $38,425 per start over his 346 PGA TOUR starts but he'll need to pocket $138,002/event over his next five starts if he wants to fulfill the terms of his medical extension. With five runner-up finishes to his name, Davis spent much of the past decade on the "best to have never won" lists, but he hasn't found the podium since May of 2010. Tue, Dec 27, 2016 09:58:00 AM

Brian Davis withdrew from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans following a 2-over-par 37-37=74 in the first round, citing a back injury. UPDATE: Davis returned to action June 9th at the FedEx St. Jude Classic and at 8-over 76-72=148, missed the cut by seven strokes.

The Englishman only made it 11 holes at last week's Valero Texas Open before withdrawing due to a neck injury, so he actually made progress today. During this week's navigation he split 10 (of 14) fairways but landed just six greens in regulation. With back-to-back WDs on his resume, gamers should steer clear of Davis until he can compete for an entire week. He moves to 1-for-8 on the season as he plays out of the 40th slot on the Tour graduate reshuffle.

Brian Davis played 11 holes during the first round of the Valero Texas Open before withdrawing due to a neck injury.

The Englishman coasted to an even-par 36 on the front nine that included a 36'4" par-saving bomb at the par-4 ninth hole. From there he three-putted at the par-4 10th hole to swallow a double bogey and backed it up with another dropped shot at the par-4 11th. He walked off the course at that point (sitting at 3-over), citing a neck injury. Davis is just 206th in the FedExCup standings and this certainly won't help in that regard.

Brian Davis is making his seventh start of the season at this week's Valero Texas Open and slots in at 206th in the FedExCup standings.

The 41-year-old is playing his 12th season on TOUR out of the Tour reshuffle where he's languishing in 40th position. He collected 23.00 FedExCup points for T28 at the Sanderson Farms back in early November, but has missed five consecutive cuts since, including in his last start a month ago in Puerto Rico. The Englishman has cashed three straight at the TPC San Antonio, but they're trending in the wrong direction, chasing T29 in 2013 with T46 and T50.

Brian Davis missed the Playoffs in 2014-15 for the first time since their inception in 2007 and entered his 12th season on TOUR 48th on the Tour priority rankings.

The 41-year-old ticked up 15 spots on the first reshuffle collecting 23 FedExCup points with a T28 at the Sanderson Farms (65-69-71-73). He missed the cut by one at the RSM on rounds of 70-71. Davis finished 143rd in the FEC standings last season with 14 made cuts, 14 missed cuts and three mid-tournament WDs. On those 31 starts, he managed just two top 10s, the most recent a T10 at the Valspar in mid-March, finishing outside the top 125 on the money list for the first time since becoming a member in 2005. The prior season, he had no top 10s on 28 starts, so the fantasy value on him is basically nil. He is a five-time runner-up on TOUR (339 career starts), but hasn't been in title contention since the 2012 Travelers where he co-lead thru 54 holes, eventually finishing T4.

Brian Davis added a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round of the Sanderson Farms Championship to touch 10-under 134 at the midpoint.

He went 5-for-15 in scoring opportunities at the Country Club of Jackson today, his longest conversion taping off at 15 feet on the button at the par-4 first. Alas, it was his last par breakers as he settled for nothing but pars coming home on the front side of the track. The Brit is one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but that deficit will grown once leader Roberto Castro completes his round.

Brian Davis turned in a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the Sanderson Farms Championship.

Buried at 44th in the Tour reshuffle, the 41-year-old is in unfamiliar territory on the overall pecking order, but that has nothing on today's flawless walk around the Country Club of Jackson. In his season debut, the Englishman went 5-for-5 in scrambling and circled six par breakers, including a pitch-in for eagle from 48 yards at the par-4 15th hole. His longest among the conventional conversions measured 17'1", good for birdie at the par-5 fifth. Davis went on to sign his card positioned just one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Brian Davis returns to the Sanderson Farms Championship and will take his first crack at the Country Club of Jackson.

The Englishman returns after a five-year absence. His resume boasts a 3-for-4 record at this event, but none of those starts came on this week's venue. With six podium finishes in 337 career PGA TOUR starts, Davis enters this field as one of the most experienced bodies. He remains in search of that infamous maiden victory, but there is nothing to suggest this will be the week.

Brian Davis takes his talents to Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, for this week's Tour Championship.

The Englishman has finished inside the top 45 in each of the first three stages of the Tour Finals. Those steady finishes have him placed 22nd in the Finals standings ahead of this week's finale. Davis finished the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season ranked 143rd in the FedExCup standings and secured conditional status. Earning full status by finishing inside the top 25 of the Tour Finals would take a huge burden off his shoulders next season.

Brian Davis readies for his first appearance at this week's Hotel Fitness Championship.

The Englishman entered the season with a perfect 8-for-8 record in terms of making the FedExCup Playoffs. That wasn't the case in 2014-15 as he finished 143rd in the FEC standings. After a disappointing 14-for-31 campaign on the PGA TOUR, Davis will now begin a battle to regain his PGA TOUR card.

Brian Davis hung 15 points on Montrêux Golf and Country Club in the final round of the Barracuda Championship to post 37 points, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

Davis began his final frame at 22 points (T28) and 19 back. Entering his fifth Barracuda, he enjoyed a mini-run posting T58-T15 is his last two starts but this is a surprise. Perhaps not, as the 41-year-old --who celebrated his birthday on August 2nd-- boasts a T2 here in Reno back in 2008. Still, Davis ranks 169th on TOUR in birdie average (3.30), but knocked in 21 this week, including six today. He circled four consecutive to start his round and five in his first six, including a 32-footer at the par-4 sixth and a 25-footer at the 10th. The Englishman netted five points with eagle from 8'7" at the par-5 13th, but played his last four holes in minus-2 points, squaring bogeys at 14 and 18. Davis has but two top 10s on his season of 29 starts, with a T6 at the Sony Open his best.

Brian Davis settled for a 1-over-par 37-35=72 in today's opening round of the Barbasol Championship.

At least he completed this week's lid-lifter. The Brit strolled off TPC Deere Run during the opener of last week's stop in the Quad Cities due to a back injury. Today at Grand National, he recovered from three bogeys through 12 holes with birdies at Nos. 13 and 18. Given that Davis piped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, he had to have expected better.

Brian Davis is included in the published field of next week's Barbasol Championship.

We'll see about this. He had to call it quits during his opening round of this week's John Deere Classic with a back injury. In his last 13 starts, Davis has cashed just four times for no better than a T36 in New Orleans. He's currently 143rd in the FedExCup standings.

Brian Davis withdrew from the John Deere Classic during his opening round, citing a back injury.

Davis walked off TPC Deere Run after finding a fairway bunker off the tee at the par-5 second hole, his 11th of the day. He was 6-over-par through 10 with one birdie, three bogeys and two doubles. This is his 12th mid-tournament WD in 332 PGA TOUR starts. The Brit started the week at 143rd in the FedExCup standings and in jeopardy of missing the Playoffs for the first time in his career. In fact, since breaking onto the circuit in 2005, Davis hasn't finished worse than 113th on the money list (2006).

Brian Davis opened The Greenbrier Classic with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-34=64 to establish the very early clubhouse lead.

The Englishman went out in the first threesome off the first tee at The Old White TPC today. After piping the fairway at the opening par 4, he jarred his approach from 146 yards for eagle. Davis followed with four birdies, including rolls from 11'11", 27'1" and 19'7" at Nos. 3, 17 and 18, respectively. Overall, he missed only one of the 14 fairways and three greens in regulation. Today's is his lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since a third-round 64 at last year's John Deere Classic. He began the FedEx St. Jude Classic three weeks ago with a 65 but settled for a share of 58th place. Davis is 150th in the FedExCup standings, so he needs a hot summer to retain his card.
