At 13-over-par 78-75=153, Scott McCarron missed the cut at the RBC Canadian Open by 13 strokes.
If you're going to miss a cut, you might as well miss it by a mile. McCarron hit only 13 greens in regulation and found two birdies at Royal Montreal. He also squared 11 bogeys and two doubles. This was his final start via a Major Medical Extension. For the record, he fell $618,656 short of fulfilling the terms. Only a victory in Quebec would have achieved that objective. McCarron also came up short of securing conditional status by $445,441. A two-way T2 would have done the job there. Of course, given that there are only two open events remaining this season and he's in the field at next week's Barracuda Championship, which he hosts, reaching the goals of the medical this week were largely irrelevant. In fact, he's now inside 12 months before he becomes eligible for the Champions Tour (on July 10, 2015), so his focus is likely on the senior circuit. Jul 25 - 7:02 PM

If he doesn't withdraw prior to his tee time in the opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, Scott McCarron will be making his last start on a Major Medical Extension.

The tournament's purse is just $5.7 million and the 49-year-old needs to earn $618,656 to fulfill the terms of the MME. Only a victory would achieve that. (A solo second would pay $615,600.) He's also $445,441 short of securing conditional status, which would require no worse than a two-way share of second place worth $501,600. Even if he turns that trick, he'd likely get into the Reno-Tahoe Open anyway since he's the tournament host. If McCarron fails at the secondary goal, he'll get demoted to the Past Champions category.
Jul 20 - 11:45 AM

At 5-over-par 72-75=147, Scott McCarron will miss the cut at the John Deere Classic.

McCarron split 20 (of 28) fairways, but hit only 20 greens in regulation and converted three birdies at TPC Deere Run this week. He also squared six bogeys and a double en route to his seventh MC in 10 starts this season. Today's will leave him with just one start on his Major Medical Extension to earn $618,656 and retain status.
Jul 11 - 3:02 PM

Scott McCarron completed 36 holes of The Greenbrier Classic in 2-over-par 71-71=142 and missed the cut by two strokes.

He buried three birdies in each round, but couldn't overcome six bogeys and a double. McCarron landed only 21 greens in regulation. He'll make the trip to next week's John Deere Classic with just two starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to bank $618,656 and retain status.
Jul 4 - 6:58 PM

At 8-over-par 75-73=148, Scott McCarron will miss the cut at the Travelers Championship.

He hit only 19 greens in regulation at TPC River Highlands this week and erased five birdies with 10 bogeys and a triple-bogey 7 at the second hole in his opening round. Now amid an 0-for-4 slump, the soon-to-be 49-year-old (come July 10) has three starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $618,656 and retain status.
Jun 20 - 1:00 PM

Scott McCarron withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Classic during his second round.

When play resumes at TPC Southwind this morning, McCarron would have been returning to the par-3 eighth hole, the penultimate of his round. However, he completed his first 34 holes in 9-over-par that began with a 5-over 75 in the first round. Therefore, he wasn't going to make the cut anyway. This drops him to 2-for-7 on the season. He's also down to four starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $618,656 and retain status. The 48-year-old did not qualify for the U.S. Open.
Jun 7 - 8:56 AM

At 5-over-par 76-69=145, Scott McCarron will miss the cut at the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

McCarron shot himself in the foot on Thursday when he whiffed on all 11 chances to break par. Instead, he squared six bogeys. Today's three birdies against two bogeys was more like it, but the damage was already done. Now 2-for-6 on the season, he has five starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $618,656 and retain status.
May 16 - 6:48 PM

Scott McCarron reached the midpoint of the Wells Fargo Championship in 3-over-par 75-72=147, missing the cut by two strokes.

He picked off only four birdies at Quail Hollow, three in today's second round. McCarron also squared seven birdies, including both times through on the par-4 first and 18th holes. This was his first appearance in the tournament since a T7 in 2010, but he's now 1-for-7. Today's MC leaves him with six starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $618,656 and retain status.
May 2 - 7:53 PM

Scott McCarron settled for a share of 75th place at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

He missed the 54-hole cut on the number at 2-under 214 and banked $12,648.00. This leaves him with seven starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $618,656 and retain status. Prior to this week, McCarron was playing on a Non-exempt Medical Extension, but an administrative error revealed that he is, indeed, eligible for the Major Medical. Up next on his slate is the Wells Fargo Championship. His T7 at Quail Hollow in 2010 not only occurred in his last appearance, but it's his second-most recent top 10 on the PGA TOUR.
Apr 27 - 7:00 PM

Scott McCarron came up one stroke short of surviving the cut at the Puerto Rico Open.

He followed a 3-over-par 75 on Thursday with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 today to post even-par 144. McCarron's second round was exceptionally impressive given he missed 10 greens in regulation and limited the damage to an opening bogey at the par-4 10th hole. Alas, he'll drop to eight starts remaining on his Non-exempt Medical Extension to earn $631,304 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.
Mar 7 - 8:25 PM

Scott McCarron blew up for a 12-over-par 41-42=83 in his third round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am at Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course.

His scorecard was as ugly as the score suggests. It included five bogeys, three doubles and a triple. Overall, he penciled in seven 5s and a pair of 7s -- consecutively, in fact, at holes 12 and 13 -- before collecting two late birdies for posterity. McCarron is 15-over 230 and will miss the cut. It's his second MC in as many chances this season. He now has nine starts on his Non-exempt Medical Extension to earn $631,304 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.
Feb 8 - 8:16 PM

Scott McCarron has been added to the published field of this week's AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am.

McCarron was the second alternate when the field was released on Friday afternoon. He gained entry when Scott Piercy withdrew. McCarron cashed in his only previous start this year, that resulting in a solo 81st-place finish at the Humana. He has PGA TOUR status via a Non-exempt Medical Extension affording 10 starts to bank $631,304 and a promotion to the Major Medical category. His only top 10 among six cuts made in 16 appearances at the AT&T was a T10 in 2004.
Feb 3 - 11:19 AM

Scott McCarron finished alone in 81st place at the Humana Challenge.

The 48-year-old made his 2013-14 season debut on a sponsor exemption this week. He'd need a third-round 66 that featured eight birdies, including a 4 at the 18th hole, just to survive the cut on the number. However, he failed to convert on any of his nine chances to break par in the final round during which he carded a 1-over-par 36-37=71 to post 8-under 280. After banking $10,146, he now has 10 starts on his Non-exempt Medical Extension to earn $631,304 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.
Jan 19 - 10:40 PM

Scott McCarron entered the 2013-14 season with 11 starts on a Non-exempt Medical Extension to earn $641,450 and a promotion to the Major Medical category.

Golfers with Minor Medicals and the variety that McCarron has don't normally receive carryovers into the next season, but the PGA TOUR made an exception for guys with this status because the 2013 was a one-time shortened schedule; that is, the Fall Series ceased to exist. So, look for the 48-year-old on occasion. Just don't invest.

Scott McCarron spun an 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the opening round of the Hotel Fitness Championship to take a one-stroke lead.

McCarron began his day on the 10th hole with a bogey, but responded with three birdies and an eagle to close out his first nine. He would then make the turn and birdie the first, second and third holes before handing back his second bogey at the par-3 fourth. He would close out his round at Sycamore Hills with two birdies over his final five holes. It goes without saying that a round like this could go a long way towards helping him earn full status for 2013-14 on the PGA TOUR.
