Troy Kelly competed 36 holes of the John Deere Classic in 1-over-par 73-70=143 and will miss the cut.
At least he won't have to wait around to see if his number will hold. The cut at the JDC has landed at 4-under 138 in every edition since 2010. Kelly hit only 19 greens in regulation at TPC Deere Run this week. He wiped away eight birdies, which isn't too shabby given minimal chances, with five bogeys and two doubles. With missed cuts in consecutive weeks upon returning to the PGA TOUR from knee surgery, it's obviously not what he wanted, but he still has 12 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points.

Troy Kelly answered his opening 69 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 5-over-par 40-35=75 to post 4-over 144, four strokes too many to survive the cut.

After yesterday's impressive effort, Kelly found only four (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation in today's walk around The Old White TPC. That mess yielded just two birdies that were erased by seven bogeys. While this leaves him with 13 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points, the good news is that he's healthy again. The form will eventually follow. He'll remain on the road and give it another go at the John Deere Classic next week.
Jul 4 - 7:03 PM

Troy Kelly resumed his PGA TOUR career with a 1-under-par 32-37=69 in the opening round of The Greenbrier Classic.

While he went 2-for-5 in rehab starts on the Tour this year, today's loop around The Old White TPC was his first with the big boys in nearly 14 months. He made it count, too, splitting 11 (of 14) fairways and finding 14 greens in regulation. Kelly circled just two birdies against one bogey, but he sunk everything inside 10 feet and sits five strokes off the clubhouse lead.
Jul 3 - 4:19 PM

Troy Kelly is listed in the published field of next week's Greenbrier Classic.

If he doesn't withdraw, it will be his first start this season on the PGA TOUR. He went 1-for-4 in rehab starts on the Tour in March. He's currently playing the United Leasing Championship, which will exhaust his allotted five rehab starts. Kelly had surgery on his right knee about a year ago. He has 14 starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points and retain status. His choice of The Old White TPC as a return site makes a ton of sense as he lost in a playoff in his only appearance in 2012. It's his only top-35 finish among 18 paydays in 52 PGA TOUR starts.
Jun 27 - 7:08 PM

Troy Kelly signed for a 1-under-par 36-35=71 following his opening round of the Chile Classic on the Tour.

Tee-to-cup statistics are not published if even maintained this week, but we do know that Kelly opened with five pars before holing a birdie at the par-4 sixth. He traded two bogeys with two birdies the rest of the way to reel in the red number. It's his first official round since the 2013 Valero Texas Open and marks his comeback from surgery on his right knee. Not that it matters in the grand scheme of things since he's eyeing a full-time return to the PGA TOUR where he has 14 starts remaining on a Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points and retain status, but he's seven strokes back of the clubhouse co-leaders today.
Mar 6 - 1:41 PM

Troy Kelly is listed in the published field of next week's Chile Classic on the Tour.

If he doesn't withdraw, it'll mark his first PGA TOUR-sanctioned action since last season's Valero Texas Open 11 months ago. Kelly was sidelined after having surgery on his right knee. The last update was that he'd play in the Tour's season opener in Colombia, but he didn't commit. The event in Chile is the circuit's second tournament of 2014. Kelly gets five rehab starts before he must return to the big leagues when eligible on merit. Because he has a Major Medical Extension with 14 starts to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points and retain status, that means that he'll qualify for every open event.

Troy Kelly is not listed in the published field of next week's Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship on the Tour.

It was just three weeks ago that we relayed news that he was going to return to PGA TOUR-sanctioned competition in this tournament. He's been out since the Valero Texas Open in early April of 2013 after having surgery on his right knee. The plan, again as of three weeks ago, was to get back to the PGA TOUR at this year's VTO on March 27. He has a Major Medical Extension affording 14 starts to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points and retain status.
Feb 7 - 9:20 PM

Troy Kelly has circled the Tour's Pacific Rubiales Colombia Championship on Feb. 13-16 to return to competition.

It's the development circuit's 2014 season opener. Kelly will take advance of the rehab starts afforded following surgery on his right knee last year. Assuming all goes well, he'll begin the comeback trail on the PGA TOUR at the Valero Texas Open on March 27. As we shared just two days, thus making today's update by The News Tribune a timely one, Kelly has 14 starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points and retain status.

Troy Kelly's absence from the PGA TOUR has entered its ninth month, and there is no indication as to when he'll return to competition.

The last we were informed, Kelly suffered a torn meniscus in his right knee and was considering surgery. Unfortunately, our previous reliable resource,, has become a subscription-based website. Since he made his start last April in San Antonio, a pair of articles on that website have alluded to his status and hopeful return, but we remain in the dark on the details. In fact, we still don't know if he had surgery. It's possible if not probable that he'll wait until the Tour cranks up in February to take advantage of rehab starts before climbing back on the PGA TOUR. Whenever he returns, he'll have 14 starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 354 FedExCup points and retain status.

Troy Kelly learned recently that he has a torn meniscus in his right knee, which is likely to prevent him from competing again during the 2013 season.

Kelly is fully exempt through this season, but he didn't play in either of the last two tournaments, thus raising a flag on a guy with a 3-for-10 slate and no top 60s. Sure enough, the Kitsap Sun interviewed the 34-year-old, who added that the ACL isn't 100 percent either. "It’s kind of like the hip," said Kelly, who had surgery on his left hip in 2010. "It went from being kinda OK to not good in a hurry. ... What I’m really having a hard time with is just walking the golf course. It’s like dragging my right leg around again and I told myself I wasn’t going to hurt walking again." He hasn't ruled out surgery, but it's not planned just yet. At this point, all remaining owners are advised to let him go. When he returns, whether it's in the beginning of the 2013-14 season this fall or during the 2014 calendar year, he'll be armed with a Major Medical Extension, albeit with a hefty monetary goal.

Troy Kelly enters the Tampa Bay Championship continuing to struggle with his game.

If you look back to the start of 2012, Kelly’s success on the PGA TOUR is completely tied to one week at The Greenbrier last year. He’s yet to secure a top-60 finish this season and is about to set foot on a course that he’s never played. The tree-lined fairways of the Copperhead Course may not bode well for someone who is 174th in driving accuracy.

Troy Kelly settled for a 1-over-par 33-39=72 in his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Kelly called it quits at Torrey Pines before his second round last week due to flu-like symptoms. He opened well today, reaching the 11th hole in bogey-free 2-under, but then doubled the par-4 11th and chased it with a bogey at 12. One more bogey at the par-4 17th followed -- he whiffed on his 50-inch par save -- before he closed with a birdie-3 at the last. His only notable conversion of the day was a birdie attempt that dropped in from 25'4" at the par-3 fourth hole.

Troy Kelly withdrew prior to his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open due to flu-like symptoms.

It seems that early every year, a bug snipes a handful of touring pros. This winter has been no exception. Kelly opened with a 5-over-par 40-37=77 at Torrey Pines South. He was scheduled to go off the 10th tee on the North today but will instead go in the books with an 0-for-2 start following a missed cut at last week's Humana Challenge. Look for him at next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open. He's 1-for-2 at TPC Scottsdale with a T57 in 2011.

Thanks to a huge week at The Greenbrier Classic, Troy Kelly is back for a third season on the PGA TOUR in 2013.

Kelly faced off with Ted Potter Jr. in a playoff in the mountains of West Virginia that he would eventually lose, but the $658,800 check represented almost 84 percent of his earnings. Needless to say, it would have been back to the Tour had he not have caught lightening in the bottle that week. Under those circumstances, it’s hard to be confident that he will navigate the 2013 schedule well enough to avoid the four-tournament qualifier for the 2013-2014 season.

Troy Kelly has been quiet since his playoff loss at The Greenbrier, but looks to jump back on track at the Open.

Kelly missed his two cuts immediately following the defeat at the hands of Ted Potter Jr., and has since made his last four cuts. The bad news is, a T48 at the Reno-Tahoe Open is the best of the bunch. The rookie is 107th on the money list and should be a lock to retain his PGA TOUR card by virtue of a top 125 spot on that list at season’s end, but a little insurance at CordeValle would be welcomed.
