Playing this season on a Major Medical Extension that dates to 2015, World No. 1967 Troy Kelly withdrew during the second round of the Barracuda Championship. UPDATE: Making his last start on a Major Medical Extension (that dated to 2015), Kelly missed the cut at the 2017 Wyndham after rounds of 9-over 75-74=149. He needed 304.337 or $495,586 to meet the terms and retain status. Kelly also falls short of conditional status, so no longer has status on the PGA TOUR.
No reason has been cited (yet) for the 39-year-old's fourth mid-tourney WD in 65 career events, first since the 2013 Farmers. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he was -1 point thru 14 holes (-1 point total) when he called it quits. In Thursday's first- round 4-over-par 41-35=76 -- good for 0 points under the Modified Stableford format -- the University of Washington alum holed out for eagle two times: first at the par-4 10th from 108 yards, and second at the par-4 12th from 127 yards. Unfortunately, he smothered those with two bogeys and four doubles. This was just his second start of the season (MC, Travelers) and now has one start remaining to earn $495,586 or 304.337 FedExCup points to retain status. Aug 5 - 9:28 AM

World No. 1938 Troy Kelly is in the published field at this week's Travelers Championship. UPDATE: Kelly returned to action June 22nd at the Travelers and will miss the cut after rounds of 73-70=143.

The 38-year-old was OWGR No. 1608 after his last tourney 96 weeks ago, posting a T66 at the 2015 Wyndham Championship. Battling injuries since 2013, he's made just 21 starts since the beginning of the 2013 season, nine in 2015, missing six cuts. The University of Washington alum still has the original three starts remaining on a Major Medical Extension that dates to 2015, and has to earn $495,586 or 304.337 FedExCup points to retain status.

The last time Troy Kelly competed on the PGA TOUR was a T66 at the 2015 Wyndham Championship 70 weeks ago.

The Washington State native and resident has been battling injuries since 2013. First, a serious knee injury in 2013 (surgery), limiting him to 10 starts, and then a slightly torn labrum in his right hip in 2014, making just two starts that year -- also getting nine rehab starts on the Web.com Tour (missing seven cuts). The 38-year-old teed it up nine times in 2015, missing six cuts, and still has three starts remaining on a Major Medical Extension to earn $495,586 or 304.337 FedExCup points. A tall order considering he's missed 39 cuts in 63 career starts and has just one career top-25 finish.

Troy Kelly declined to peg it during the fall events on the PGA TOUR.

Can't say that you can blame him, though. He has only three starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to bank $495,586 or 304.337 FedExCup points, no small beans given the limited chances he's left himself. The 37-year-old went just 3-for-9 in 2014-15 with no better than a T39 at the U.S. Open. Kelly is also 213.790 FedExCup short of the minimum to achieve conditional status. Whenever he returns, he'll be shooting for the stars, but it would be unfamiliar territory if his reach extends as he's recorded only one top-35 finish in 63 PGA TOUR starts (P2, 2012 Greenbrier Classic).

Troy Kelly blew up for a 5-over-par 35-40=75 in today's final round of the Wyndham Championship and finished in a two-way share of 66th place at even-par 280.

Only 69 golfers completed 72 holes and the two below him (and Roberto Castro) were five and eight strokes back, respectively. Kelly hit 12 greens in regulation today but muscled out only one par breaker, that a birdie at the par-4 17th hole. He surrounded it with four bogeys and a double after parring the first nine holes at Sedgefield Country Club. In the process, he fell 19 spots on the leaderboard and collected just $11,178.00 and 4.50 FedExCup points. It's assumed that he'll peg it in the Web.com Tour Finals because of the medical, but Kelly still has three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $495,586 or 304.337 FedExCup points and retain status.

Troy Kelly totaled 25 points en route to a share of 47th place at the Barracuda Championship, good for $8,514.66 and 14 FedExCup points.

He was in position to record a top 25 if not better with the volatility of the Modified Stableford scoring system, but Kelly scored only three points on Sunday with four birdies against five bogeys. With four starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension, he can retain status if he earns $506,765 or 308.837 FedExCup points. Needless to say, unless he manages to crack the top 125 in either, his MME will carry over again. Perhaps he'll secure a safety net at the Web.com Tour Finals, though.

At 2-under-par 69-71=140, Troy Kelly missed the cut at the John Deere Classic by two strokes.

Competing for the fourth time at TPC Deere Run, Kelly leaves town with the same result as the first three. He shouldn't be surprised, however, as he hit only 22 greens in regulation in a tournament where mounting scoring opportunities is tantamount. He weighed down six birdies with four bogeys. This is also his sixth MC in seven tries this season, and it leaves him with five starts on his Major Medical Extension to bank $515,279 or 322.837 FedExCup points and retain status.

Troy Kelly completed 36 holes of The Greenbrier Classic in 4-over-par 71-73=144 and will miss the cut.

Kelly and everyone else in the morning wave waited out an 18-minute delay for heavy rain this morning, but all it did was postpone his trip out of town. He found 19 (of 28) fairways but only 19 greens in regulation en route to seven bogeys and a double. So, five birdies were hardly enough to survive this shootout where he lost in a playoff in 2012. This drops Kelly to 1-for-6 on the season. He now has six starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to bank $515,279 or 322.837 FedExCup points and retain status.

At 6-over-par 72-73-72-69=286, Troy Kelly finished in a three-way tie for 39th place at the U.S. Open.

The Washington state native survived the cut on the number at Chambers Bay. It's his first payday of 2014-15 in five starts, so naturally it occurred at the U.S. Open in his backyard. And it's his best result on the PGA TOUR since he lost in a playoff at the 2012 Greenbrier Classic. Kelly was rewarded with $47,854.00 and 31 FedExCup points. He now has seven starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $515,279 or 322.837 FedExCup points and retain status.

Troy Kelly turned in respective scores of 68 and 71 at today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Tumble Creek Club in Cle Elum, Washington, today, posting 1-under 139, good for a share of runner-ups honors and a berth into the field of 156 at Chambers Bay next week.

It's always a bit intriguing when a guy on medical extension like Kelly sits out for several months, and then wiggles his way into the season's second major. It'll be his second appearance in the major (MC, 2005). The University of Washington product hasn't pegged it anywhere since missing the cut at the WM Phoenix Open and he's missed 10 consecutive cuts splitting time on the Web.com Tour. Cheng-Tsung Pan, also via UW, served as the medalist today at 2-under 69-69=138. He'll be making already is third start in the U.S. Open. Richard H. Lee, yet another Husky, was the other co-runner-up at 1-under 69-70=139. The 28-year-old with conditional status has never competed in a major. Notables that failed to qualify today include: 141--Donald Constable ... 144-Casey Martin ... 145--2007 British Amateur champ Drew Weaver.

At 10-over-par 75-77=152, Troy Kelly will miss the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Another week, another weekend off, his fourth in as many starts this season. He went 0-for-9 in birdie chances today and squared three bogeys and a triple. Kelly now has eight starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 353.837 FedExCup points and retain status.

At 1-under-par 71-73-71=215, Troy Kelly will miss the cut at the Humana Challenge.

This marked Kelly's first start since the Shriners in October, but the result is the same. In fact, he's now missed seven straight cuts dating back to the 2013 season. This week in La Quinta, California, he converted 15 birdies, but also squared 11 bogeys and a triple. Kelly now has nine starts on his Major Medical Extension to collect $563,133 or 353.837 FedExCup points and retain status. He'll give it another go at next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open where he missed the cut in his last two trips. Continue to ignore in all formats that reward success.

Troy Kelly is included in the published field of next week's Humana Challenge.

Kelly still has status on the PGA TOUR via a Major Medical Extension. Should he earn $563,133 or 353.837 FedExCup points in his next 10 starts, he'll retain status. However, there's nothing in the recent past to suggest that those terms serve as a realistic goal. He's 0-for-2 this season and has missed his last six cuts on the PGA TOUR dating back to the 2013 season. Even worse, Kelly has only one top-35 finish in 56 career starts on the circuit. He also cashed just twice in nine starts on the Web.com Tour in 2014.

Troy Kelly shot a pair of 1-over-par 72s at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and missed the cut by four strokes.

He found only 17 greens in regulation for the week and erased four birdies with four bogeys and a double bogey-7 at the 16th hole on Thursday. It's his sixth consecutive MC dating back to the 2013 season. Today's leaves him with 10 starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $563,133 or 353.837 FedExCup points and retain status.

Troy Kelly reached the midpoint of the Frys.com Open in 1-over-par 71-74=145 and missing the cut by two strokes.

When you hit only 20 greens in regulation through two rounds, expectations for magic are low. Kelly found eight birdies, but he scuffled to square seven bogeys and a double. He'll head to the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open with 11 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to bank $563,133 or 353.837 FedExCup points and retain status. Kelly has now missed five consecutive cuts on the PGA TOUR dating back to the 2013 Shell Houston Open pre-surgery on his right knee.
