J.J. Henry claimed the Reno-Tahoe Open by adding 7 points in the final round to finish the week with 43, earning his second PGA TOUR win by a point over Alexandre Rocha.

Henry circled four birdies and gave back just one bogey on the strength of a solid all-around effort. He finished the week ranked inside the top 10 in putting, GIR, driving accuracy and driving distance. The win was his first since the 2006 Buick Championship, and it earns him the final spot in the PGA Championship to be contested at Kiawah Island.

Haotong Li knows how to conquer Topwin Golf & CC in Beijing and will seek to do so again in this week's Volvo China Open.

The Chinese player returns to the scene of his victory in 2016 and it might be the perfect spot for him to get his season back on track. His stunning final round defeat of Rory McIlroy earned him the Dubai Desert Classic, but after that he struggled somewhat although his Augusta National debut offered hope, opening with a 69 for T4 before ending the week T32 and a first top 50 since that Middle Eastern success. His form in the tournament has been transformed in recent years, from MC-MC-MC-T50 in his first four appearances to T6-1-T11 in the last three. In 2016 he closed the week out with a round of 64 for a three-shot win. He's 42nd for SG: Off the Tee (+0.491) this year.

Alexander Levy returns to Topwin Golf & CC in Beijing to defend his Volvo China Open title with perfect current form.

There is no mystery as to why the Frenchman is favorite this week with the bookmakers. Not only is he a two-time champion in the tournament, including victory at Topwin last year when he opened with a 63, drifted for 36 holes and then burst back into life with a Sunday 67, but he is also generally clutch in China. He's not just 13-for-13 there, but he has ten top 30 finishes including six that are T8 or better. The recent form is no more or less impressive. Ahead of last week's Trophee Hassan II he had pegged three top seven finishes in four regular European Tour starts and confirmed that promise with victory in Morocco. A thrilling player to watch, he remains an outside bid for the Ryder Cup team and will eye this week as an opportunity for points.

Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith teamed up to win the 2017 Zurich Classic of New Orleans and they return this week for another crack at TPC Louisiana.

This duo joined up through a connection with Cameron Smith's caddie who is also friends with Jonas Blixt. That chemistry led to some instant results as they signed for rounds of 67-62-68-64 before knocking out Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown in a playoff. Those two pairings were four shots clear of the closest competition. Perhaps finding form just in time for a title defense, Blixt enters off a season-best T14 at the RBC Heritage while Cameron Smith has already posted five top 10s on the season. Last year this duo battled through heavy winds and a lengthy rain delay. The forecast is looking calmer this year but they should still lean heavily on the fond memories from last year as they try to defend their crown.

Luke Donald has announced a leave of absence while he deals with some back pain. There is no clear timeline for return at the moment.

Donald provided an updated to fans via Twitter, "Unfortunately after trying to play with some back pain the last few months, my team & I have decided it’s best for me to receive the recommended treatment & take the necessary time to recover." He would go on to add, "Gutted about this but I’m fully committed to getting back out onto the course ASAP." The Englishman is also dealing with the recent loss of his mother so it's all piling up at the worst possible time, it seems. The 40-year-old has lost strokes to the field in 17 of his last 20 starts on the PGA TOUR. Season-long gamers can cut ties if they were holding on hope for a revival year. Hopefully, this break will recharge the batteries and provide him with more chances to contend over the next few years. Some say '40 is the new 30' so don't count him out just yet.

Victor Dubuisson had made just one appearance since the end of 2017 and it may be his only one this season if reports prove correct. Update: the French press carried a statement.

The Frenchman missed the cut two weeks ago in the Open de Espana, his first outing since the DP World Tour Championship, but then withdrew from the Trophee Hassan II. Exact news of his condition could not initially be verified, but the French press were aware that he is afflicted by vertigo and others from around the circuit had heard he was out for the season. The European Tour were not able to confirm such player news, but French paper L'Equipe reported he will be out for six months and quoted a statement on Friday: "My health is a priority. I hope to return to play on the Tour as soon as possible."
