Jarrod Lyle will announce today that he will not compete in 2013.

Lyle finished 164th on the money list thanks to a strong start during which he went 6-for-7 with a T4 at the Northern Trust Open. He shut it down after a T37 at the Mayakoba Golf Classic when he was diagnosed with leukemia for the second time in his life. Now, whether he means that he won't play the PGA TOUR in all of 2013 or just the compressed 2013 schedule remains to be seen. Certainly, golf isn't the priority right now, but whenever he's able to return, he'll have 16-19 starts on a medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $283,825 and a promotion into the Major Medical category. When the TOUR releases terms of medicals, we will relay them to you as always.

Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship prior to the start of the event, citing a lower back injury, putting an end to his 2015-16 season.

The German has now withdrawn pre-tournament from the last three events. He's fought quite a few injuries over the course of the season but still managed to tie his career-bests in top 10s (4) and top 25s (9) in a single season. At 73rd in the FedExCup standings, he won't crack the field at next week's BMW Championship. The 45-year-old is becoming a walking injury bug, but he remains a worthy fantasy option when healthy. Cejka teed it up in four events during the fall wraparound schedule this year, so gamers should keep an eye out for a fall return, assuming his health cooperates.

Prior to the start of the event, Kevin Na has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, taking the week off to soak in the joys of becoming a father for the first time.

The 32-year-old welcomed his daughter Sophia Ria Na into the world on Monday. He remained committed to the DBC at that time, but his initial plan was to skip TPC Boston since it fell right on the due date. Na held true to his initial schedule and is no longer in the field this week. At 14th in the FedExCup standings he can afford the week off and gamers should look to possibly re-invest next week at Crooked Stick when "nappy factor" will be in its freshest form.

After a close call at last week's Barclays, Rickie Fowler heads toward TPC Boston for a chance to defend his title at the Deutsche Bank Championship.

Fowler led after 54 holes last week at Bethpage Black before falling back with a closing 3-over 74 to finish T7. He is now 0-for-4 when holding a 54-hole lead/co-lead but last year at TPC Boston he started the finale one shot off the lead and penciled a 3-under 68 to oust Henrik Stenson by one stroke. It was his first real taste of success at the venue, entering with zero top 20s before the victory. The 27-year-old is surely disappointed that last week's effort didn't earn him an automatic seat on the United States Ryder Cup squad, but this week poses a great opportunity to rebound and show captain Davis Love III that he rounding into form at the perfect time.

Tyrrell Hatton can't wait to revisit a favorite part of the world when he pegs it up in the Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre GC in Switzerland.

It's hard to find a weak spot in the career record of the Englishman in Crans. 7 of his 8 rounds there have been 68 or better, that includes three 65s and a best of 62, he has ranked top five for All Round game twice, he knows the greens (topped Total Putting in 2015) and can get from tee to green (5th for Driving Accuracy and Greens in Regulation in 2014). It all amounts to him recording T3 in both his visits. About the only thing counting against him would be too-high expectations. That point might be further enhanced by his seasonal form which has no less than ten top 20 finishes. Lacking a victory at this level, it would seem that the time is right: ideal venue, superb form. The trouble is that golf bites hardest when hopes are high; but if he can manage those hopes he has to be a good bet of contending again.

European Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke announced his three picks to round out the team, choosing Martin Kaymer, Lee Westwood, and Thomas Pieters.

With five rookies earning their way onto the team, much of the speculation geared toward picking the veterans to round out the squad. That is exactly what Clarke did with Kaymer and Westwood, but Pieters gives the team a sixth Ryder Cup rookie. Pieters played golf at the University of Illinois so Midwest golf should be very familiar to him although he's returned to play just three PGA TOUR events in the states since graduating. The 24-year-old certainly checks the form box as he arrives with three straight top 5s internationally, including a win at last week's Made in Denmark. World No. 20 Russell Knox was left off the team, and will have to wait until 2018 to potentially make his Ryder Cup debut at Le Golf National.

Matthew Fitzpatrick returns to the Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre GC looking for an end to his form peaks and troughs.

The boom or bust nature of the callow Englishman's 2016 continues. In 21 strokeplay starts he has just three top 25 finishes, but they were T7 in the Masters, victory at the Nordea Masters and solo fifth (when he needed exactly that as a minimum) in the Czech Masters. Having secured his Ryder Cup spot in Prague it's slightly surprising that he played both last week (MC) and this, but perhaps he is desperate to find the consistency that has eluded him since the end of last year. He missed the weekend on debut in Crans Montana in 2014, but was superb in finishing second behind Danny Willett last year. No-one in the field hit more greens in regulation than he did in shooting 69-65-64-65 to co-lead at 54-holes before fellow Sheffield, England resident Willett stretched him.

Victor Dubuisson makes a sixth visit to the Omega European Masters at Crans-sur-Sierre GC this week.

The enigmatic Frenchman heads to the Alps with a record that, were it represented in the form of a graph, would actually look like a mountain: his first and last visit saw him miss the cut, his second and fourth starts reaped T49 and T29, in between he shot 68-65-66-66 to end the week T3 (2013). Two years ago his Ryder Cup debut hinted at better things to come and yet his mysterious off-the-course problems seem to have worsened rather than eased. He opened this season with T4 at the lucrative Nedbank Challenge, since when he is 4-for-10 in strokeplay on the European Tour and failed to make any headway in the WGC World Match Play. All that said, being a true enigma it's entirely possible he could do something special out of nowhere and maybe the week's Ryder Cup talk will prompt him to recall what he will be missing in Hazeltine.

Nicolas Colsaerts returns to his home continent for this week's Omega European Masters at the stunning location of Crans-sur-Sierre in Switzerland.

The Belgian represented his country in the Olympics (T30) and before that missed the cut in the PGA Championship at Baltusrol so will hope familiar European soil will spark him back to life. He's had recent third place finishes in the both the Scottish Open at Castle Stuart and Nordea Masters in Sweden and is 33rd on this year's Race to Dubai. Colsaerts has plenty of experience of this week's par 70 having pegged it up there nine times previously. He missed five of his first six cuts but posted T23 in 2010 and improved to T13 in 2014 after shooting all four rounds in the 60s. When the former Ryder Cup star putts well he often contends so gamers who get him on board will keep their fingers crossed for a good performance on the greens.

The great Seve Ballesteros is the only man to have successfully defended the Omega European Masters (1977-1978) but 2015 winner Danny Willett will aim to emulate the iconic Spaniard this week.

With bookend 65s and a second-round 62, Willett took the trophy last year and that added to previous efforts of T5 (2014) and T2 (2012) on the picturesque Crans-sur Sierre course set high in the Swiss Alps. Only outside the top 26 once in seven starts at the par 70, the Englishman loves the course but is struggling for recent form after suffering a dip since his brilliant win at Augusta National. Willett did post a top three in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth at the end of May but since then he hasn't bested T37 in six starts. He'll hope his close-up view of watching compatriot Justin Rose win Olympic gold will inspire him to further heights at Crans this week while his upcoming Ryder Cup debut is further incentive to sharpen his game.

Past champ Adam Scott patched together an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The Barclays to post 7-under 277, down one spot into a three-way T4, two in arrears to champion Patrick Reed.

The 36-year-old began the finale in solo third on 7-under, two back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he bobbled to back-to-back bogey-5s to open, the latter a 3-putt from 47'3", but rebounded with birdies on Nos. 4, 7 and 9 to turn 1-under. After the break, he 3-jacked the 11th for bogey from 54'9" and 3-jacked the 13th from 31'7" for bogey-6, before completing his scoring with a 31-incher for birdie-3 at 15. The Aussie had a 3'6" birdie try on the last to share second, but whiffed. He was No. 1 for the week in SG: Approach-the-Green (8.976) and SG: Tee-to-Green (14.706), but 76th (of 79) in SG: Putting at -4.814, including -3.844 in R4. Scott records his sixth top 10 of the season (17 starts), five of which are top 5s.

Overnight leader Rickie Fowler stalled out to a 3-over-par 35-39=74 in today's final round of The Barclays for a four-day total of 6-under 278, down six places into a three-way T7, three back of champion Patrick Reed.

The 27-year-old was chasing his fourth TOUR title in his 173rd career start (168 pro), first since the 2015 Deutsche Bank. This was his fourth career 54-hole lead/co-lead and he drops to 0-for-4. Fowler began the final frame with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Reed after opening in 67 and bogey-free laps of 69-68. He mustered six (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting -1.549 SG: Approach-the-Green and -1.032 SG: Around-the-Green. He went out in blemish-free 1-under, circling a 15-footer at the par-5 fifth, but the wheels came off from there, squaring bogeys on 11, 15 and 18, and double bogey-6 at 16 (all failed sand saves). Fowler played his final four holes in 3-over, sandwiching in a second birdie at the par-3 17th (22'4"). He settles for his eighth top 10 of the season in 21 starts.
