Italian rookie Francesco Laporta took a share of the early clubhouse lead on day one of the Trophée Hassan II after hanging up a 4-under-par 35-33=68.

A walk-off birdie at 18 completed a back nine of 33 and took Laporta into a tie with Aussie Jason Scrivener. It looked to be a struggle early on for the 25-year-old after he swallowed bogeys at 2 and 3 but he turned at even par thanks to birdies at 5 and 9 before picking up another shot at 10 and draining an eagle-3 at 12. Laporta has had a difficult time since coming through Q-School last November, missing five of six cuts and finishing T76 in the Joburg Open. But he dropped a hint that his season might be turning when T4 in last week's second-tier Challenge de Madrid. However, this could all be smoke and mirrors as the man from Italy hit just 7 greens in regulation and took only 20 putts today. He was 8-for-11 in scrambling.

Jason Scrivener hit just five fairways on his morning lap of Royal Golf Dar Es Salam but posted the early lead at the Trophée Hassan II with a 4-under-par 33-35=68.

With scoring tough in Morocco on Thursday, Scrivener limited the damage to just a single bogey at No. 13 thanks to 5-for-6 scrambling. He circled birdies at 2, 4, 11, 14 and 15 although failed to pick up shots on any of the par 5s so may feel he left some shots out there. Nevertheless, it was enough to put him on top of the leaderboard in just his second appearance in the event. The South African-born Aussie returned to the European Tour with T44 in the Volvo China Open last week after a five-week break so looks to be back up to speed again here. His best results this season are third at the Perth International and T12 in the South African Open which makes sense given his background.

World No. 3 Rory McIlroy highlights the 156-man Wells Fargo Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina, and enters as defending champ for a second time.

McIlroy is clearly comfortable at Quail Hollow Club with five top 10s in six tries, including four straight beginning with a playoff loss in 2012. His breakthrough PGA TOUR win came on debut in 2010, playing the weekend in 16-under 66-62=128, but his one hiccup came the following year, missing the cut as defender. McIlroy is the top-ranked player in Charlotte and the pre-tourney fave at 4/1 outright. He won last year as the bookmaker fave (3/1) in record-setting fashion, both in aggregate at 21-under 267, and with a course record 11-under 61 in R3. The Northern Irishman, who turns 27 today (May 4th), is an 11-time winner on TOUR though none have come as defending champ. He's been idle since T10 at the Masters.

Due to family issues Stewart Cink has announced a leave of absence from competitive golf for the foreseeable future.

Cink announced on Twitter that his wife, Lisa, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. He then added "In order to assist Lisa in meeting this challenge, I will be stepping away from competitive golf until circumstances improve for her. Hopefully that day will come quickly." It's horrible news but an easy decision to walk away from the game right now. This goes beyond any fantasy advice, and all we can do now is hope for the best for Cink and his family during this trying time.

Smylie Kaufman has withdrawn from this week's Wells Fargo Championship, citing a minor wrist injury as the culprit.

Kaufman took to Twitter to alert his fans and followers by saying "Bummed to have to WD. Been dealing with lingering tendinitis in wrist since Augusta. Rest and rehab. Hope to play Players next week." The LSU product is 11th in the FedExCup race so he can afford to take a week or two off to get rested up. With Kaufman using the word hope in regards to his status for next week, gamers should keep a close eye on the field when it's released come Friday. The benefit of this pre-tournament WD is D.H. Lee who gets the honor of replacing Kaufman. He'll make his third appearance at Quail Hollow Club (T16/2013;MC/2014).

Jim Furyk will return from a wrist injury that has kept him sidelined since September, making his first stop at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Furyk is building a roadmap to recovery and it starts with back-to-back events as he'll tee it up at THE PLAYERS next week, as well. Quail Hollow Club is a tough venue to make a comeback, as it stretches out past 7,500 yards and requires precision with the long irons. Furyk has won on this course, but he needed 8.74 strokes gained with the putter the week of his win. The PGA TOUR veteran has been very cautious with this injury but we can't rule out a bit of rust that comes from not playing tournament golf and not playing four consecutive days worth. The wait-and-see approach is a good one to take this week before a possible investment at THE PLAYERS.

Corey Nagy torched Gaston Country Club with an 8-under-par 31-32=63 to Monday Qualify for this week's Wells Fargo Championship. Joining him will be Blake Olson, Ethan Tracy, and Mackenzie Hughes, who all signed for 7-under 62s.

Nagy circled a pair of eagles, playing the trio of par 5s at 4-under-par on this 6,986 yard layout. He swallowed just one bogey but it was still good enough to punch his ticket. The UNC-Charlotte product posted a 3-for-4 record on the Web.com Tour last year but has yet to tee it up on the big stage. In fact Hughes is the only qualifier with any PGA TOUR experience (0-for-3, no starts since 2013). Hughes is also 4-for-7 on the Web.com Tour this year, but nothing better than a T30. Hughes sets up shop out of Raintree Country Club in Charlotte, so he will be very comfortable with the surroundings this week and may carry some local knowledge into the event.

Jamie Lovemark painted a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the three-day third (and final) round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to match 36-hole leader Brian Stuard and Byeong-Hun An with 54-hole aggregates of 15-under 201, and lost to Stuard on the second hole of sudden death.

This was Lovemark's third Zurich with missed cuts in 2012 and 2014, and entered the week off a MC in his last go at the Heritage. Playing his 16th event of the season and his 80th career start (72nd as a pro), he began the third round T2 on 11-under, one back of Stuard. The 28-year-old hit 13 greens in regulation, circling birdies on Nos. 7, 10, 11 and 13, but the one missed chance he'll loath came on the 72nd hole, 3-putting the par-5 18th (from distance) for par. On the first playing of the 18th in sudden death, he and Stuard advanced with pars while An exited with bogey-6. On the second playing, Lovemark airmailed the green with his second from the fairway and took two pitches to get on, one-putting for par while Stuard won with birdie-4 from short range. It's his second career runner-up (2009 Frys.com) where he also lost in a playoff.

Brian Stuard scribbled a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-34=69 during the closing round of the weather-shortened Zurich Classic, remaining blemish-free on the week at 15-under 201 as he heads into a three-man playoff with Byeong-Hun An and Jamie Lovemark. UPDATE: Stuard outlasted Jamie Lovemark and Byeong-Hun An in a three-man playoff, securing his first career PGA TOUR victory.

Stuard did not look sharp today but his scrambling remained perfect (20-for-20 on the week). In the third (and final round) specifically, he landed just 11 greens in regulation after missing five (of 14) fairways. His flat stick was not exactly cold today, he just didn't give himself many realistic par breaking opportunities. He did rope in a 27'7" birdie bomb at the par-5 second hole but that would be his only putt made from outside 7'6". UPDATE: Stuard traded pars with Jamie Lovemark on the first playoff hole and then stiffed his approach shot on the second playing of the par-5 18th to circle a birdie and secure his first PGA TOUR victory. Stuard was a flawless 46-for-46 from inside 10 feet this week. With this win, Stuard receives a two-year status exemption, entry into the 2017 Masters, and a vault up the FedExCup standings from 184th to 38th.

Byeong-Hun An torched TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the weather-shortened Zurich Classic, making him the first to sign a 15-under 201 with a chance to pick off his first career PGA TOUR victory. UPDATE: An made a mess of the first playoff hole and will have to settle for a co-runner-up finish and a top-10 exemption into next week's Wells Fargo Championship.

An put on a ball-striking clinic today, striping all 14 fairways and landing 15 greens in regulation. Only one of his putts made today came from outside 8'4". It was a 28'8" birdie bomb on the par-4 15th hole to close out a third-hole birdie train. An is in the clubhouse with the lead and will watch the rest of the field finish up their rounds. This was An's 20th career start on the PGA TOUR but just his first top 10 in a stroke-play event. The World No. 31 has done most of his damage on the European Tour but this finish will open up a lot of doors for the youngster who sets up shop in Florida and is attempting to secure his first PGA TOUR card.
