Tim Clark was removed from the published field of this week's Frys.com Open.

The South African missed the cut in Vegas last week in what was his 20th start of the year. He's fully exempt on the PGA TOUR through 2015 by virtue of his victory at THE PLAYERS in 2010, but he's 55th on this season's money list, impressive given he didn't return from elbow surgery until February.

Julian Suri’s electric finish saw him draw level with Richard McEvoy at the top of the round one leaderboard in the Porsche European Open after he carded 6-under-par 33-33=66 on the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The American is performing largely on the Challenge Tour this year, but gets occasional starts on the main circuit and has proved himself adept at the level: T15 in the Australian PGA Championship, T2 in the Open de Portugal and T23 in the Lyoness Open being the standout results. He’s on track to maintain that progress after an opening lap which improved at pace. He started with a frustrating birdie-bogey exchange before turning in 1-under thanks to a par breaker at No. 7. There was another at 11 before he hit home in a rush of red. A hat-trick at 14, 15 and 16 preceded a birdie-4 on the 517-yard par-5 last to tie McEvoy, one swing clear of Stuart Manley, Charl Schwartzel, Alexander Levy and Chris Paisley on the live leaderboard.

James Hahn was striping it tee-to-green en route to a 6-under-par 31-35=66 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, grabbing an early share of the clubhouse lead on Thursday.

Hahn opened his day on the back nine and gave himself plenty of scoring chances early, and often. On the day he gained 1.553 strokes off-the-tee and 3.305 strokes approach-to-the-green. That translated to 11 birdie looks from inside 13 feet on the day. Hahn would convert on seven of those chances to erase a long bogey. With a T11 already on his Glen Abbey Golf Club resume (2015), gamers shouldn't expect any kind of major regression as the week progresses.

Bob Estes electrified Glen Abbey Golf Club during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, firing a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 to throw his name into contention early in the week.

Estes opened his day with early birdie looks from 10'4" and 5'5" but he missed on both. Perhaps they were too easy for him, as he proceeded to drain birdie bombs from 34'6" and 35'8" at the 5th and 6th holes, respectively. He would later add three shorter birdies but overall he was just 3-for-9 converting on scoring chances from inside 16 feet. Estes is no stranger to success around Glen Abbey, posting four top 15s at this week's course. More recently, he hasn't posted a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since the 2014 OHL Classic at Mayakoba (T10), way back in November of 2013. Estes is still playing on a Major Medical Extension, with 10 starts remaining to earn $479,415.

Scott Piercy has withdrawn from the RBC Canadian Open just before his opening tee time, giving Tom Hoge a crack at Glen Abbey Golf Club, in his place.

Piercy withdrew from The 146th Open, but did not cite any injury or illness. There was the chance he just wanted to spend some time with the family instead of traveling overseas. This pre-tournament WD just one week later probably confirms there is an injury or illness, although it hasn't been cited at the time. Piercy is a past champion at this event (2012) but his victory came at a different host course (Hamilton G&CC). Piercy finished T7 at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational in late May but has since gone MC-MC-MC-85.

In-form Richard McEvoy crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round at the Porsche European Open in Germany, his morning lap at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg securing a one-shot clubhouse lead over Alexander Levy, Charl Schwartzel and Stuart Manley.

The Englishman's place at the top seems a surprise on first glance given that we've not seen him in action on the European Tour since T59 at last month's BMW International Open, also in Germany. However, prior to that he was T5 at the Lyoness Open in neighboring Austria on a course with similar traits to this one and at the start of July he shot a final-round 66 to win the Scottish Challenge on the Challenge Tour. McEvoy started his round from 10th tee today and the birdies came at regular intervals (11, 13, 15 and 18). He picked up another shot at 2 and then made a go-ahead birdie-3 at 7 to claim the outright lead on his own before maintaining it with a pair of closing pars.

RBC Ambassador and World No. 12 Matt Kuchar readies for his 11th RBC Canadian Open and checks in at 17th in the FedExCup standings.

The 39-year-old arrives off solo 2nd at The Open, his career best in majors and ninth top 10 in 47 major appearances. It was also his fifth consecutive top 16 on TOUR. The Georgia Tech alum is second fiddle this week to World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, both in OWGR and pre-tourney odds, a lofty 10/1 outright. He's 7-for-10 North of the Border with six top 25s, five top 10s (four straight), and three top 5s, including runner-up in 2013. The Florida native ranks T14 on TOUR in par-3 scoring (3.00), T20 in par-4 scoring (4.00) and T120 in par-5 scoring (4.71).

Patrick Reed stays the other side of the pond this week and makes his way to Germany for the 2017 Porsche European Open at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The American will form part of the tournament's star three-ball Thursday morning, teeing off at 0800 local alongside defending champion Alexander Levy of France and former Masters winner Charl Schwartzel. Reed arrived in Europe earlier this month after connecting four top 20s in the U.S. but it's been a disappointing time so far following missed cuts at both the Scottish Open (74-70) and Open Championship (74-76). This will be his first start in Germany but any lack of course form is negated by the tournament switching to a venue that hasn't been used on the European Tour. Reed should also enjoy the switch back to parkland golf after struggling on the links so gamers are entitled to think he'll show his class again.

Jhonattan Vegas came from off the pace to win the 2016 RBC Canadian Open, and hopes to repeat that performance this week as he turns his attention toward Glen Abbey Golf Club.

Vegas opened the 2016 edition with a 1-over 73 to sit at T55 on the leaderboard. He progressively improved in rounds 2 and 3, reaching T15 before the finale. Vegas was still five off the pace before torching Glen Abbey Golf Club with an 8-under 64 to heist the trophy from Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson, and Martin Laird. Last year, Vegas arrived on the heels of a strong week at the Barbasol (T4, including an 11-under 60 in R2). This time around, the Venezuelan enters with five straight missed cuts to his name. Perhaps a return to happy hunting ground will restore the form for this Texas Longhorn product.

Alexander Levy will defend his Porsche European Open title this week at a new venue, the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The Frenchman is always at his best on parkland tracks, preferably modern builds too, so his efforts in recent weeks can be taken with a pinch of salt. In fact, you might argue they show some improvement on his past efforts on linksland so he might thrive back with a challenge he enjoys. He’s also a strong performer in Germany (T3 Eichenried 2013, T12 Gut Larchenhof 2014, T55 Bad Griesbach 2015, 1 Bad Griesbach 2016). A four-time winner on the European Tour he is unafraid of the top of the leaderboard, hits the ball high and long; there seems plenty of reason to believe he’ll attack this week with abandon.

Lee McCoy twirled a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 and then survived a 6-for-2 playoff during today's open qualifier into this week's RBC Canadian Open. Joining him at Glen Abbey Golf Club will be Drew Nesbitt (-5), Riley Wheeldon (-5), and Jhared Hack (-4) with the latter also surviving the 6-man playoff.

McCoy is currently spending his time north of the border on the Mackenzie Tour, so this was familiar hunting ground. The Georgia Bulldog standout won the opening event of the season (Freedom 55 Financial Open) and current ranks 4th on the money list. That bodes well for his chances to crack the Web.com Tour by year's end. He would love to piece together a couple of top-heavy finishes and avoid the WCT altogether. He certainly has the talent to do so, but it shouldn't be expected. McCoy is the only qualifier who is not a Canuck. The remaining three qualifiers have a progressive degree of experience on the PGA TOUR. Drew Nesbitt is making his debut, Jhared Hack is 0-for-1 in his PGA TOUR career (2015 Honda), and Riley Wheeldon is 0-for-2 on the big stage, but hasn't pegged it since the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open.

Brandt Snedeker has backed out of the field for this week's RBC Canadian Open, giving a spot to first alternate Sam Saunders.

Snedeker provided a message to fans last week before withdrawing from The 146th Open. He cited a rib injury that popped up and didn't improve like he would have hoped. He did not provide another lengthy explanation this week, but gamers can put two and two together. First a hand injury and now the ribs are acting up(which he's suffered from in the past), makes it easy to avoid Snedeker for the foreseeable future.
