Medical Exemptions a PGA Tour Golfers Best Friend

20 PGA Tour pros were granted various levels of medical extensions for 2007 today. Tom Byrum will get 17 starts to make $559,804, which would give him the equivalent of No. 125 on the money list for this past year. That's what a bum knee will give you.

Byrum and Scott Hoch were among a dozen players who sought and were granted extensions through the major medical category. Others were:

  • Chris Perry (18)
  • Scott McCarron (13)
  • J.L. Lewis (14)
  • Kevin Na (21)
  • Hank Kuehne (21)
  • Carl Paulson (15)
Minor medical extensions (injuries that kept them from playing for fewer than four months) were awarded to seven players, including Rocco Mediate (10), Thomas Levet (10), Bill Glasson (3) and Steven Bowditch (5).
