In 2007 was limited to just 4 starts due to vertigo, started feeling dizzy as he stood over putts at the end of 2006. He felt it again at the Sony Open in Hawaii in '07, and then again at the Bob Hope, but he played through it. Somehow he made both cuts. Soon the dizziness got so bad he couldn't play, and he withdrew from the Buick Invitational in San Diego. Bertsch underwent multiple MRIs and CT scans, but specialists were stumped. He was prescribed two medications that helped, but 2007 was a bust as he only played one more time, missing the cut at the Players Championship.
Bertsch used a medical exemption to play in 2008. To earn exempt status for 2009, he says the Tour told him he would have to win as much in 28 tournaments as the 125th player made in 2007. When he did so with six tournaments left to play, he asked a Tour official if his standing was secure. According to Bertsch, the official assured him he was indeed safe. Bertsch had been meaning to bury his father's ashes for five years, and with his status looking settled by late October 2008, the time seemed right. He and his wife, Monica, and their daughters, Brianna, 7, and Stella, 3, joined Bertsch's mother and siblings in North Dakota to say a final goodbye. But Bertsch was not fine. His 2008 earnings were enough merely to give him status for the rest of 2008, not 2009. The week of the last official event of 2008, the Children's Miracle Network Classic at Disney, he learned he was in danger of losing his card for the next year, having fallen to 124th in 2008 earnings. Played at Disney but missed the cut which dropped him out of the top-125 to 126th. With all of the problems, he wasn't able to enter Q-School that year. If that wasn't bad enough, in December of 2008 he slipped and broke his right foot going down a staircase in his home. Spent seven weeks in a cast and the foot didn't heal. Eventually learned he had suffered ligament damage along with a broken metatarsal. 24 weeks after his fall, he had surgery, which didn't totally work and necessitated another operation 12 weeks later. With that the 2009 season was also a total loss. Bertsch got another medical exemption, but it would only get him into 13 tournaments in 2010. It didn't matter because at the AT&T in February broke his right hand while moving items into his RV, requiring surgery with pins inserted and wasn't able to play until September. Made five starts on the Nationwide Tour, with his best finish a T-5 at the Win-Dixie Jacksonville Open. Also played season ending Disney, missing cut.
In 2011 played five more events on Nationwide Tour only making one cut, T-57th Albertson Boise Open. Played 20 events, with best finish T-4th at Frys.Com. Finished 143rd on money list, went back to Q-School and finished T-38th. Has limited access in 2012 via the top-150 category.
