After opening the RBC Canadian Open with a 4-under-par 35-33=68, Neal Lancaster shot 3-over 40-35=75 to post 1-under 143, one stroke outside the cut line.
Thursday's masterpiece was Lancaster's first red number on the PGA TOUR in over two years, but he couldn't recover after beginning today's walk around Glen Abbey par-double bogey-double bogey on the back side. As a result, the 52-year-old is down to three starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category. Notables who missed today's cut include: 143--Matt Every; Chris Stroud ... 144--2011 champ Sean O'Hair ... 145--2004 champ Vijay Singh; Sangmoon Bae; Matt Jones; Robert Garrigus (who opened with 67) ... 146--Morgan Hoffmann ... 147--John Peterson; Graeme McDowell ... 149--Kevin Chappell; John Huh ... 150--2002 champ John Rollins; Martin Laird; Jerry Kelly ... 152--Fabian Gomez; Greg Owen.

Neal Lancaster has returned to the field of this week's RBC Canadian Open.

He was bumped to fourth alternate after the top 10 from Barbasol were added, but regained entry when Brandt Snedeker withdrew. Lancaster still has four starts on a medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category. He didn't qualify for this week's Senior Open Championship, so he just might remain committed to the RBC. If he does, it'll mark his first start in the tournament since 2012. The 52-year-old last played Glen Abbey in 2004.

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

This is his third straight early withdrawal from a PGA TOUR commitment, but he competed in the U.S. Senior Open the same week as the Travelers Championship, anyway. Lancaster is not in the field of this week's Encompass Championship on the Champions Tour, either, so he'll still have four starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category on the PGA TOUR to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Neal Lancaster has withdrawn from this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Not a surprise. He worked over a T33 at the U.S. Senior Open last week and has status on the PGA TOUR only via a medical extension in the reshuffle. Lancaster will remain parked on four starts to burn.

Neal Lancaster polished off the U.S. Senior Open with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 to post 3-over 283, good for a share of 33rd place.

The 52-year-old aced the par-3 second hole at Del Paso Country Club in Sacramento, California. Because it damaged the cup, the hole was moved two feet from its original location. He added a birdie at par-4 10th and surrounded his par breakers with 16 pars. Despite the fact that he competed in a major on the Champions Tour, Lancaster was eligible for merit at the Travelers Championship, so he'll be docked a start on his medical extension in the reshuffle category on the PGA TOUR. He now has four starts remaining to earn $727,814 for a promotion to the Major Medical category. He's currently scheduled to peg it at this week's Greenbrier Classic.

Neal Lancaster has withdrawn from this week's Travelers Championship.

Not that it matters in our world, but at least he made an early decision to allow someone more interested in chasing a PGA TOUR card at TPC River Highlands. Lancaster will remain with five starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $727,814 for a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Neal Lancaster arrived at the halfway point of the FedEx St. Jude Classic in 12-over-par 74-78=152 and will miss the cut.

He went 0-for-8 in scoring chances today and squared six bogeys and a double. It's his second MC in as many starts on the PGA TOUR this season and leaves him with five on a medical extension in the reshuffle category to bank $727,814 for a promotion to the Major Medical category. Critics will quickly cite that he shouldn't be wasting a spot in a field, but even the harshest has to acknowledge that the SJC dipped rather deep to fill its field of 156 anyway. The 52-year-old is entitled to playing time because of the medical provision, so at least he picked a spot where the vitriol should be minimal.

Neal Lancaster has been removed from the published field of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He's been known to do this. The next time he pegs it, the 52-year-old will still have six starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category. Should he opt for a start on the Champions Tour the same week that he'd be eligible on merit on the PGA TOUR, he'd lose a start on his medical.

Neal Lancaster arrived at the halfway point of the Zurich Classic in 2-over-par 74-72=146, seven swings too many to play on.

This marked Lancaster's debut on the PGA TOUR this season. He still has status via a medical extension in the reshuffle category, but for most intents and purposes, he's a Champions Tour golfer now. At TPC Louisiana, he hit 25 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies, but the 52-year-old also absorbed seven bogeys and a double. He now has six starts remaining on the medical to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Neal Lancaster has planned a rare appearance on the PGA TOUR in next week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The 52-year-old made only one start on TOUR last season and missed the cut at Greenbrier. He's a sometimer on the Champions Tour, but still has status on the big stage via a medical extension in the reshuffle category. Should he earn $727,814 in seven starts, he'll be promoted to the Major Medical category. Of course, this is merely academic at this stage of his career, but it's a nice perk when he wants to give his game a test. If he doesn't withdraw, he'll be making his debut at TPC Louisiana.

Neal Lancaster's medical extension in the reshuffle category on the PGA TOUR was extended yet again for 2014-15.

Lancaster's medical dates back to 2010, but he still needs to bank $727,814 in his next seven starts to earn a promotion to the Major Medical category. (He's $504,566 shy of conditional status.) The 52-year-old made only one start on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, missing the cut at The Greenbrier Classic, but he went 1-for-2 on the Champions Tour. He then placed T14 at Champions Tour Q School on Friday to earn the opportunity to peg it in open qualifiers at co-sponsored events on that circuit. Should Lancaster compete on the Champions Tour when eligible on merit for the PGA TOUR event in the same event, he will forfeit a start on his medical.

Neal Lancaster has been removed from the published field of this week's Wyndham Championship.

Lancaster lives in Smithfield, North Carolina, which is 100 miles or so from Sedgefield, but he'll end the season with seven starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category. He made only one start this season, missing the cut at Greenbrier. NOTE: Vaughn Taylor, Jesper Parnevik and Marco Dawson also withdrew as alternates. Taylor is slated to play the News Sentinel Open on the Web.com Tour. Dawson is scheduled to play the Champions Tour's Dick's Sporting Good Open. Parnevik is snorkeling.

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

We just knew that it was too good to be true after he missed the cut at Greenbrier. Lancaster hasn't competed in consecutive weeks on the PGA TOUR since August of 2009. He still has seven starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Neal Lancaster completed 36 holes of The Greenbrier Classic in 13-over-par 73-80=153 and will miss the cut.

Making his first appearance in a PGA TOUR event since the 2013 Wyndham Championship, Lancaster hit only 17 greens in regulation and picked off just four birdies at The Old White TPC this week. He offset with 11 bogeys and three doubles. This leaves him with seven starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Neal Lancaster has been added to the published field of this week's Greenbrier Classic.

He was the fourth alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. With three withdrawals today, it could be assumed the Lancaster received the last sponsor exemption, but that cannot be confirmed at the moment. He popped up in the field at the Travelers two weeks ago, but didn't make it to midday on Tuesday of tournament week before he had withdrawn. If he honors this week's opportunity, he'll be making his first PGA TOUR start since last year's Wyndham. Lancaster has eight starts remaining on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $727,814 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.
