Former Boise State golfer Graham DeLaet is one step closer to earning his PGA Tour Card for the 2013 season. On Sunday, DeLaet finished tied for 12th at the Greenbrier Classic, earning $119,560. The paycheck puts DeLaet at $674,230 in earnings on the season, making him a full member of the PGA this season.
"To answer a lot of tweets, I am now off my major medical , and will play as a full member for the remainder of the season," DeLaet announced via Twitter on Sunday.
DeLaet had been on a major medical exemption this year after missing the majority of last year due to a back injury. He needed to earn $657,694 in 26 starts to be able to qualify for his tour card in 2013. But, he still hasn't wrapped up his card just yet.
"I still need to finish in the top 125 to have a job next year though."
DeLaet is currently ranked 100th on the tour, according to PGAtour.com.
