John Oda rocketed out of the gate with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, sharing a piece of second place alongside Ryan Moore as play winds down on Thursday.

The UNLV product posted a T3 at the Barracuda Championship to earn his ticket into this week's event. It was his second top 10 of the season (OHL Classic) as he tries to play his way into some professional status. Today he split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens. From there, his flat stick caught fire to the tune of 3.308 strokes gained putting. That included four putts drained from outside 14 feet. The longest came from 41'4" for birdie at the par-4 sixth hole. This is the 10th start of his young career (seventh since turning pro) and it easily eclipses his previous low round (6-under 65, R2 of 2017-18 OHL Classic). Oda doesn't overpower courses so Sedgefield Country Club is the perfect layout for him to showcase his talents.

Ryan Moore was a tee-to-green magician in round one of the Wyndham Championship, coasting to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 30-33=63 which puts him in second place on the live leaderboard, four shots off the remarkable pace set by Brandt Snedeker.

The UNLV product won this event back in 2009 when he opened with a 6-under 64. That remained his lowest round at Sedgefield Country Club until today. Nearly all of his work was done from tee-to-green as he set up scoring chances from inside 21 feet on all but one hole today. Moore pelted all 18 greens in regulation. He walked off the course gaining 3.484 strokes approaching-the-green. The 35-year-old finished 28th in the automatic Ryder Cup standings but would vault himself into the captain's pick conversation if he went on to win this week. Moore went 2-1-0 as a rookie during the 2016 Ryder Cup at Hazeltine, including a 1-up singles victory over Lee Westwood.

Martin Flores tossed together a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, sharing a piece of second place, five off the torrid pace set by Brandt Snedeker.

Flores posted a T7 here last year to jump inside the FedExCup Playoffs bubble. He's looking to repeat that effort as he starts this week ranked 162nd in the FEC standings. He's outside of the bubble to even earn conditional status currently. If he finished in T2 (his current position) then he'd climb to 110th but he doesn't have much wiggle room to drop any further down the board. There are still 54 holes to go but he's off to a strong start after gaining 5+ strokes with the putter today. He pelted 14 greens in regulation and then rolled in three putts from outside 20 feet before his day was done. Flores hasn't posted a top 10 since his T7 here last year so he has quite the uphill battle ahead of him.

Brandt Snedeker was firing on all cylinders en route to an 11-under-par 27-32=59 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, signing for his career-low round to join an elite group of golfers to shoot sub-60 on TOUR and also snag the early clubhouse lead as the morning wave starts to wrap up.

Snedeker started his round on the 10th tee with BOGEY-PAR-PAR. He rattled off four straight birdies after that, with two of them coming from 26 feet. The putter would stay hot as he played the final 15 holes at 12-under, despite missing a six-footer along the way. The ball-striking highlight came at the par-4 sixth when he holed out from 176 yards for an untraditional eagle. He'd cap off his round with a 20'4" birdie putt (from the fringe) to become the 9th player ever to post a sub-60 round (Jim Furyk x2) on the PGA TOUR. Snedeker walked off the course gaining 6.198 strokes on approach. This eclipses Si Woo Kim's course record of 60 and also beats Snedeker's previous low on the PGA TOUR (61, 3 times). One of those came here at Sedgefield (R2, 2015) so he clearly feels comfy in Greensboro.

Clement Sordet thrashed a superb 8-under-par 32-30=62, his European Tour career low lap, to set the early clubhouse target in the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden.By day's end Sordet remained two clear of Slattery and Jamieson.

The rookie graduated to the main stage from the Challenge Tour, a move confirmed when he won the end-of-season Grand Final, but it has been a tough baptism despite finishing T10 in his first start in Hong Kong. Indeed it remains his only top ten of the season and he arrived on a run of 3-for-11 with a best of T45. However in his first career start in Sweden he laughed in the face of that form with a flawless lap of the course. Two spells in particular were out of the ordinary. He opened proceedings with four birdies in four holes before six pars took him safely through the turn and into the back nine. Whereupon he notched a hat-trick of red numbers at 11, 12 and 13 to really make his move. A final par-breaker at the 530-yard par-5 18th earned him a two-shot lead over Scott Jamieson and Lee Slattery on the live leaderboard as he signed his card.

Past champ and World No. 20 Webb Simpson, a pre-tourney 10/1 fave outright, readies for this 10th Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club and checks in at No. 12 in the FedExCup standings.

The Wake Forest alum locked up an automatic selection to the Ryder Cup squad with a T19 at last week's PGA. That was his third straight top-25 finish and fourth consecutive top 20 in majors. Overall, the North Carolinian is 18-for-21 on the season with 13 top 25s and six top 10s, four of those top 5s, highlighted by his win at THE PLAYERS. He slots 2nd in all-time earnings at the Wyndham and is 8-for-9 with seven top 25s and five top 10s, including a win in 2011 as the 54-hole leader. The 33-year-old's scoring average in 34 laps on the par-70 layout is 67.18 with 24 rounds in the red and nine laps of 64 or better.

Past champ and World No. 25 Sergio Garcia, a pre-tourney 25/1 outright, makes his first appearance in the Wyndham Championship since a T29 in 2013 as defending champion.

This is the 38-year-old's fifth straight week of competition but he should be well rested. He's missed three cuts, including at last week's PGA (his fifth straight MC in majors), and only played four rounds at the no-cut WGC-Bridgestone (finished T39). In total, the Spaniard has missed five of his last six cuts on TOUR and checks in at 131st in the FedExCup standings with just six made cuts versus eight MCs on the season. He's one of 13 players who have advanced to the FEC Playoffs in all 11 seasons, so perhaps a return to Sedgefield CC will be just what the doctor ordered to keep that streak alive. Garcia is 4-for-4 here with three top 25s and two top 10s, including a win in 2012, his eighth (of 10) wins on TOUR.

Rickie Fowler has announced he'll skip the first leg of the FedExCup Playoffs as he looks to rest a partially torn oblique.

Fowler shared the news via social media, "News got out last week that I was dealing with an oblique injury the past two tournaments...it was confirmed yesterday, via MRI, that I have a partial tear in my right oblique" Fowler would add that he plans to return for the rest of the Playoffs and be fully healthy ahead of the Ryder Cup. We should expect to see him in Boston in a few weeks for the Dell Technologies Championship, barring any further setback.

Defending champ Henrik Stenson is searching for his form ahead of this week's Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club.

The Swede fired out of the gate with an 8-under 62 last year and then cruised home with rounds of 66-66-64. That was good for a one-shot lead, holding off a charging Ollie Schniederjans. He arrived on the heels of five straight top 30s last year but this time around he sputters in with MC-T39-T35 over his last three starts. A big concern for gamers has been his elbow injury that forced him to withdraw from the Scottish Open. "I can practice and I can play without any problems as of now, but can't really go after it in the gym." During his recent slump he's struggled on the greens (-6.2 strokes putting at Firestone and -3.7 strokes putting at the PGA Championship). His elbow is still a small concern but gamers should otherwise consider him a top-tier option this week in all fantasy formats.

Grayson Murray will be making his return from an injury layoff as he preps for this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Raleigh resident has been sidelined with June 10th (St. Jude Classic) with a shoulder injury. He missed a chance to defend his title at the Barbasol and was a pre-tourney WD a few weeks ago at the Barracuda. Before his injury, Murray 15-for-20 with seven top 25s on his CV. That still has him positioned inside the top 125 in the FedExCup race so Murray is likely using this as a tune-up ahead of the Playoffs and it makes it easier that we're playing in his home state this week. There is no need for gamers to jump the gun this week but if he shows promise at Sedgefield, then he could be worth a look next week at THE NORTHERN TRUST.

Wake Forest product Will Zalatoris has received a sponsor's invite and looks to cash in at this week's Wyndham Championship.

Zalatoris left college a bit early in hopes of kick-starting his pro career. He's yet to convert as he's 1-for-7 on the PGA TOUR (T68 at this year's Pebble Beach Pro-Am). The problem has been his short game as he's lost strokes around-the-green AND putting in all six ShotLink starts. On the bright side, he gained 4.6 strokes on approach during his start at the Memorial Tournament so the upside is certainly there for this 21-year-old with pedigree. Zalatoris reached as high at No. 8 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings before turning pro and now he heads back to his old stomping grounds this week. With local knowledge on his side, this could be a good week to take a chance on the youngster, but only in the deepest of fantasy formats.

Thorbjorn Olesen is currently without his sticks, but he will hope to still make an impression in the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden this week.

The Dane lies sixth in the Race to Dubai and high in the Ryder Cup rankings off the back of a summer of decent results. It started with victory in the Italian Open and since then he has had an on week always followed by an off. Take a look: 1-MC-2-MC-6-12-3-56. That kind of hints at him making the top ten again this week. More realistically, his third in the WGC Bridgestone Inivitational looks good in this company and in not contending at Bellerive (but pegging two 68s) he was not emotionally exhausted. Nonetheless, he has jetlag to deal with plus the current loss of those clubs in the netherworld of airport luggage backrooms. He was a winner in Sweden on the Challenge Tour and has twice finished T4 in the event, most recently last year.
