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. Jul 3 - 12:23 PM

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.

Troy Kelly is included in the published field of next week's Frys.com Open.

After sitting out 11 months to have and recover from surgery on his right knee, Kelly went 2-for-5 in rehab starts on the Web.com Tour before returning to the PGA TOUR in July. He missed both cuts and hasn't played on the circuit since. He then missed another cut on the Web.com before going 0-for-3 in the Finals. Needless to say, he's not a wise fantasy investment even though he still has 12 starts on a Major Medical Extension to collect $563,133 or 353.837 FedExCup points and retain status. Kelly has just one top-35 finish in 54 PGA TOUR starts.

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.

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 Web.com 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.

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 Web.com 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.

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

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