Robert Karlsson has withdrawn from this week's British Open.

Karlsson used Twitter to explain his mysterious decision, writing: "Just pulled out of the British open. Have got into some bad habits in my game and routine that I need to address. taking a few weeks off." The Swede hasn't posted a top 25 in a stroke-play event since a T20 at the WGC-Cadillac in March. He's eligible for the PGA Championship, so perhaps he return at Kiawah Island on Aug. 9. Since the field at Royal Lytham & St. Annes drops to 156, Karlsson will not be replaced. Ben Crane remains the first alternate. UPDATE: The Associated Press reported that Karlsson is injured, although no details are shared. Also, Ben Crane is in Oregon. Second alternate, Michael Thompson, is on site.

Steve Stricker added a 6-under-par 35-30=65 in his second round of the John Deere Classic to post 9-under 133 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Any other year and Stricker did what you expect him to do to TPC Deere Run today except that he probably scored as well as possible given the challenges. He hit 13 greens and limited the damage to one bogey at the par-4 13th where he incurred a penalty after a poor drive, probably due to an unplayable lie, and eventually converted a bogey putt from 13'1". Elsewhere, he holed seven birdies, the longest measuring 15'3" at the par-3 third. Stricker also poured in a par save from five yards just off the green at 6. He's unlikely to serve as the overnight leader, but gamers everywhere are exhaling after the uncertainty of Sunday's fade at Greenbrier.

Patrick Cantlay did not tee off as scheduled for his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The rookie was slated to go off in the last threesome off the 10th tee at 2:15 p.m. CT today. He was not replaced in the field probably because no alternates were on site or immediately available. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Media alerted its followers on Twitter that Cantlay withdrew due to a back injury. This gives gamers reason to be concerned as he had been sidelined for months due to a fractured vertebra.

Brian Harman spun an 8-under-par 32-31=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic to join the clubhouse co-leaders.

For a guy with a penchant of going low, it's saying something that this is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 63 at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. Harman went 8-for-16 in birdie chances today and added a five-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 13th hole. His longest conventional conversions stretched 11'4" and 21'7" at Nos. 11 and 12, respectively. But since he two-putted three times from nine feet and in, including a miss from just 38 inches at the par-5 second hole, his strokes gained-putting landed at about 0.000 when he walked off.

Rory Sabbatini lit up TPC Deere Run for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-32=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic, good for a piece of the clubhouse lead.

The South African has done very little in the last couple of months, so today's round is a bit of a surprise. Sparked by a red-hot putter, He went 8-for-16 in birdie chances, two of which on par 5s. Five of his birdies measured longer than 13 feet. The notables stretched 21'10" and 21'11" at Nos. 4 and 12, respectively. At last check, his strokes gained-putting sat at 3.758.
Jul 10 - 1:50 PM

Zach Johnson continued his assault on TPC Deere Run with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

He signed his card with the clubhouse lead. ZJ ranks second in all-time earnings at this tournament, yet today's score is his lowest in 43 competitive rounds. He split all 14 fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies, including on all three par 5s. The only par breaker that disappeared from outside 10 feet measured 18'8" at the par-3 12th hole.
Jul 10 - 1:41 PM

Todd Hamilton opened the John Deere Classic with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-32=64, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Talk about capitalizing on getting the last sponsor exemption. Hamilton went out in the second threesome off the 10th tee at TPC Deere Run today. He'd go on to hit 16 greens in regulation and convert seven times for birdie. Three of his rolls stretched longer than 11 feet, the longest measuring 18'9" at the par-3 seventh hole. This was his first round of the 2013-14 season. It's his first red number since a second-round 70 at last year's Open Championship and equals his career low on the PGA TOUR first set in the third round of the 2008 Frys.com Open.

In what will go down as one of the strangest injuries of 2014, Jesper Parnevik broke a rib when he fell off a Segway.

OK, so Segways aren't as safe as we are led to believe. Brandt Snedeker banged up his knee in China while riding one last fall. However, there is video evidence of Parnevik's tumble. Click on the link below for the short clip. He was maneuvering around a small tree when he lost his balance and fell on the handle of the machine. It looks painful and it will cost him at least a few weeks of action. The Swede tagged the vid with this text: "Haha, of all injuries I'v [sic] had, this is the most ridiculous!! Broke a rib and had to withdraw from all events this month." He doesn't have any fantasy value unless you're in a pool that rewards odd sports injuries. If so, congratulations. You just won your league championship.

Steve Stricker has elected not to compete in next week's Open Championship.

He said last week that he was going to wait to see how he played at Greenbrier and potentially this week at the John Deere Classic, but the time had come when he felt compelled to take a pass on the trip. He blew up for a 4-over-par 74 in the final round at The Old White TPC where he settled for a share of 35th place. Stricker is the all-time earnings leader at the JDC with consecutive victories in 2010-2012. He placed T10 last year.

With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 at today's open qualifier at Pinnacle Country Club in Milan, Illinois, Andrew Ruthkoski earned a berth into the John Deere Classic.

Ruthkoski was the only of the four-spotters without a blemish today. He circled six birdies in regulation, and then survived a 3-for-2 playoff that eliminated Jace Long (34-32=66). Ruthkoski has cashed in three of his five career PGA TOUR starts, but hasn't pegged it in an event since missing the cut at the 2009 Buick Open. Ryan Lenahan (33-33=66; 7 birdies, 1 bogey) also survived today's playoff. At 7-under, 33-32=65, Raymond Knoll (1 eagle, 6 birdies, 1 bogey) and Armando Villarreal (8 birdies, 1 bogey) shared medalist honors. Lenahan, Knoll and Villareal will be making their PGA TOUR debuts. The field at TPC Deere Run is now complete at 156.

Roger Sloan claimed his first Web.com Tour victory in a playoff over Derek Fathauer on a long day at the Nova Scotia Open.

The competitors were forced to log 36 holes in the final round due to the impact of Hurricane Arthur on Saturday at Ashburn Golf Club's New Course in Halifax. Make that 37 for Sloan and Fathauer, as they were tied at 11-under-par 273 at the end of regulation. Sloan closed with a 1-under 36-34=70 to Fathauer's 5-under 29-37=66. Returning to the par-4 18th for what would be the only hole of sudden death, Sloan's par was good enough as Fathauer settled for a 5. Sloan is Canadian, so there is no doubt that his victory on native soil in his 32nd Web.com Tour start will hold a special place in his heart for some time. After beginning the week at 80th on the money list, he's vaulted to 12th. Should he remain inside the top 25 at season's end, he would graduate to the PGA TOUR in 2014-15.
Jul 6 - 8:43 PM

With a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in his final round of The Greenbrier Classic, Steve Marino finished in a five-way share of 11th place at 8-under 272, good for $137,800.00, just $174.00 more than he needed to secure conditional status for the remainder of the season.

This was the final start on his Major Medical Extension for which he needed no worse than a solo fourth-place finish to retain status. With his secondary objective achieved, Marino will slide to the back of the line in the conditional status category and remain eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs. He's already committed to the John Deere Classic and is sure to wrangle a spot in the Reno-Tahoe Open in four weeks. Spots on merit in the RBC Canadian Open (July 24-27) and Wyndham Championship (Aug. 14-17) should be considered questionable until those fields are published on their preceding Fridays.
