The PGA of America announced today that Tom Watson will serve as captain of the United States Ryder Cup team in 2014 at Gleneagles in Scotland.

This fulfills the hoopla surrounding Watson since Sunday when he acknowledged in Australia that he'd love a chance to return to the helm. He captained the victorious U.S. squad at The Belfry in England in 1993. "I was waiting for about 20 years to get the call," Watson said this morning. "I loved it the first time. I'm a great fan of the Ryder Cup. It's a great honor to be able to do it again." The European captain is expected to be named next month.

Scott Stallings twirled a 3-under-par 36-37=67 during his opening navigation of PGA National's Champion Course at the Honda Classic, circling a hole-in-one at the par-3 15th along the way.

Stallings arrived in good form, posting a solo eighth at the CareerBuilder Challenge and a T14 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am over his last three starts. He kept that momentum rolling today, posting his second-lowest score at PGA National's Champion Course (4-under 66, R2 of 2013 edition). The clear highlight of the round came at the 15th where he holed his tee shot at the 179-yard par 3. It will go in the books as his third-career ace on the PGA TOUR (2016 Valero Texas Open and 2011 Transitions Championship). Making his fourth appearance at the Honda Classic, Stallings is still looking for his first top 25 here, and is well on his way after a solid opening round.

Tim Wilkinson had a short week at the Honda Classic, withdrawing after 12 holes, citing a back injury.

The Kiwi was making his sixth appearance at this event, posting a 4-for-5 record with a WD in 2010 (food poisoning). This time around he opened with a double bogey, adding another double at the par-3 fifth, and also sprinkled regular bogeys at Nos. 3, 10, and 11. That placed him at 7-over thru 12 holes and he called it quits from there. Wilkinson arrived with five straight cuts made, so gamers shouldn't lose interest, long-term, over this one bad outing.

George Coetzee was 5-under through 13 holes in his first round at the Joburg Open and four behind clubhouse leader Paul Peterson before play was suspended for the day due to a waterlogged course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in South Africa.

Heavy rains had already hampered the build-up to this week's European Tour event, causing the cancellation of Tuesday's Pro-Am, and further downpours in the afternoon session left 103 players still to complete their rounds. Coetzee, the 2014 winner here, was T7 on the leaderboard after ticking five birdies. They all came on his opening nine on the tougher South Course as Coetzee circled red at 1, 4, 6, 8 and 9 before adding four pars after the turn. Play is set to resume at 6.45am local time Friday morning. A place in this summer's Open Championship at Royal Birkdale is available to the top three players in the top 10 who are not already exempt. Coetzee has yet to qualify so that gives him even more incentive as he looks to battle it out for the claret jug for the seventh straight year.

Paul Peterson blitzed Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club's West Course for a bogey-free 9-under-par 31-31=62 in round one of the Joburg Open on Thursday, good enough for a two-shot clubhouse lead before play was called off early due to heavy rain.

The American made the big breakthrough on the European Tour with victory at last summer's D+D REAL Czech Masters after a 64-67 weekend finish. He went two lower than that Saturday round after pouring in four birdies in his final five holes (14, 15, 16 and 18) today. The left-hander was already 5-under by that point having started fast with circles at 1, 2, 5, 6 and 9 on his outward half. He leads by two from English duo Paul Waring and Aaron Rai although 103 players still have to complete their rounds and George Coetzee (-5 after 13) and Adilson Da Silva (-5 after 12) could still reel him in. Peterson withdrew after a 77 in his opener at this event last year but the straight-hitting 28-year-old has been in decent form with T29 in Malaysia and T28 at the Qatar Masters on his last two starts. "I feel like I've been playing really well the last few weeks and I feel like a round like this has been building," said Peterson, who will play the tougher East Course in round two.

Prior to the start of the event, Steve Marino has withdrawn from this week's Honda Classic, opening a spot for first alternate Andres Gonzales.

Marino was one of the five golfers last week who failed to return on Saturday morning to finish up their second round. It was assumed to be weather-related at the time, but perhaps there was a bigger issue for Marino. Prior to last week's WD, the 36-year-old had missed the cut in five of his previous six starts. Gamers can avoid Marino until he shows some form.

Justin Thomas will get a few home-cooked meals ahead of this week's Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

The Jupiter resident rocketed out of the gates this season with three wins in his first five starts. He's cooled a bit with a missed cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and T39 at last week's Genesis Open. The big hitter will look to get back in the winner's circle on a layout where he's already found success. After a missed cut in his 2015 debut, he returned to post four rounds under-par en route to a T3 finish. Over the last six years, only four others have accomplished the same feat of four red numbers (Rory McIlroy/2012; Tom Gillis/2012; Ryan Palmer/2014; Sergio Garcia/2014). Gamers should give Thomas a very strong look this week, in all formats.

Local man George Coetzee will take on a rain-drenched Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC when he goes in search of a second victory at the Joburg Open in South Africa.

Heavy rain in the build-up has softened the two courses (East and West) used this week and caused the pre-qualifier at nearby Houghton Golf Club to be called off Tuesday with the course waterlogged. Coetzee has seen a variety of weather conditions in this event down the years but has connected six top 25s since 2011. The highlight was his three-shot win in 2014, the 19-under total giving him the first of a trio of European Tour wins (two coming in South Africa). Coetzee, who was also T3 at this venue in 2013, has finished in the top 55 on the Race to Dubai for the last six seasons. He's currently 43rd this time despite cashing in just 50% of his starts so far. The highlight of those six events was T7 in the Dubai Desert Classic earlier this month. He warmed up for this week with T14 in the local Sunshine Tour's Dimension Data Pro-Am last Sunday although the 30-year-old started the Sunday of that tournament in a tie for the lead. Gamers shouldn't hesitate to get him on board this week.

Adam Scott took home the hardware after the 2016 Honda Classic and returns this week for a chance to defend his title at PGA National's Champion Course.

World No. 7 eased into his victory last year, opening with an even-par 70 to find himself T23 after day one. From there he posted rounds to 65-66-70 to land one clear of runner-up Sergio Garcia and four clear of Blayne Barber and Justin Thomas. The most remarkable part of that victory was surviving a quad-bogey 7 at the par-3 15th in round three. On the week he put on a ball-striking clinic, gaining 4.7 strokes off-the-tee and 7.7 strokes approaching-the-green. Last week, Scott posted a T11 at the Genesis Open, his first start in the States since the TOUR Championship in September. The Aussie deserves to be a top-tier pick in all fantasy formats this week.

Joey Garber took top honors at today's open qualifier into this week's Honda Classic, firing an 8-under-par 31-32=63 to seal his seat. Joining him from the qualifier will be Ryan Armour (7-under 64) and the two survivors of a 5-for-2 playoff taking place tomorrow morning.

Garber is a qualifying machine. He played in four events last season, Monday qualifying into three of those events and receiving a sponsor's invite into the other (Wyndham Championship). The Georgia Bulldog also received a sponsor's exemption for his PGA TOUR debut at the 2014 Travelers, his only start prior to last season. For Garber, that means 4-of-6 PGA TOUR appearances have been hard-earned. Despite his stellar track record on Mondays, he's finished outside the top 70 in four of his five starts. That's not to say the upside is not there for Garber, as he posted a T13 at the 2016 Barracuda Championship. Gamers can safely avoid Garber for fantasy purposes, but he is an interesting name to watch on the leaderboard this week. Tomorrow morning Nicholas Lindheim, Stephen Gangluff, Jonathan Randolph, Brett Drewitt, and Julian Etulain will vie for the last two spots.

Brandon Stone has won two of the last six European Tour events he's contested on home South African soil and will look for more success in this week's Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club where he's rated the clear favourite for victory with the bookies.

The 23-year-old made the breakthrough with a two-shot win in the 2016 BMW South African Open last January before he scored a dominant six-stroke victory in November's Alfred Dunhill Championship, the opening event of this season's Race to Dubai. So far in the Joburg Open he's 3-for-4 with a best of T16 in 2014. He added T28 last year and was T46 on debut in 2012 so hasn't quite been able to crack the code at this venue yet. After finishing T31 in defense of his South African Open title, the former University of Texas grad tried his luck on the PGA TOUR last month but failed to cash at the CareerBuilder Challenge or Farmers Insurance Open. That may be where his future lies long term but the experience will have done him good and he showed no dip in confidence when returning to the European Tour a week later to take T7 in a quality field at the Dubai Desert Classic. This is first start following a two-week rest since that top 10.

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 141 Wesley Bryan back-pedaled to a 1-over-par 35-37=72 in today's final round of the Genesis Open to finish up his tourney debut on 11-under 273, falling two places into a career-best four-way T4, six shy of champion Dustin Johnson.

The 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year began the final frame in solo 2nd, five back of the would-be-champ and reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year. Due to no re-pairing between Rounds 3 and 4, he played out of the eighth-to-last threesome, teeing off 1 hour and 10 minutes before Johnson, coincidentally both Colombia, South Carolina, natives. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and found 11 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.818 putts per GIR, -1.225 SG: Putting and 30 putts total. Bryan circled four birdies but outbalanced them with five bogeys, four failed scrambles and a 3-putt from 9'4" at the third. This was his 13th career start, ninth as a member, and brushes aside a previous-best T8 at the 2016 John Deere Classic.
