Not too shabby right out of the gate. He needed a solo 21st-place finish to meet the terms of his Major Medical Extension. Instead, he exceeds the terms with four starts remaining. This means that he'll slide into the No. 1 position of the Major Medical category for the remainder of the year. Meanwhile, in another bit of good news, he reversed his earlier position regarding playing time in the United States. One month ago today, he wrote in his online journal that he wasn't expected to play the PGA TOUR before the end of February and that he'd limit his season to 10 events. This past Friday, he wrote: "It's nice to be back here in America, my focus is to play a full schedule in America this year and get back into the swing of things." Therefore, congratulations to gamers that invested across the board. Salary formats that allow midseason pickups should go get him immediately.
