Jesper Parnevik Declines Career Money Exemption

I've been wondering about one of my favorite players on the PGA Tour lately and how his schedule would look this year as he finished at 143rd on the money last year. I'm talking about Jesper Parnevik that crazy smart dressing Swede. Well it looks like I finally know this from PGATour.com:

Jesper Parnevik will start 2009 on Conditional status, electing not to use a one-time, career money list exemption. Parnevik finished 143rd on the 2008 money list and 44th in career earnings, which would have allowed him to burn a one-time exemption allowed those inside the Top 50 all-time. But Parnevik is just 43 years old and will gain entry into 16-19 events in 2009 on merit alone. Plus, as a past champion, he is allowed unlimited sponsor's exemptions. It's likely that he wouldn't exhaust his career earnings exemption unless he finished outside the Top 150 in a single season.
