Mark O'Meara in danger of losing status

Mark O'Meara has one more chance to secure full-exempt status for the year.

O'Meara missed the final two months of the 2004 PGA Tour season with a wrist injury and was given a minor medical extension. Because he earned $543,866, the two-time major winner had eight tournaments to make $79,396 -- which would give him the equivalent of 125th on the money list last year.

He has played seven times this year, made three cuts and is $10,892 short with one tournament left. O'Meara, 48, helped his cause at the Masters by tying for 31st to earn $46,550.

O'Meara likely only needs to make the cut at his next tournament to make up the difference.

Either way, he plans a full schedule. O'Meara already has exemptions to the Wachovia Championship and the EDS Byron Nelson Championship. If he still doesn't have his card by the end of the year, he can use his one-time exemption for top 50 in career money to play next year.
