Dustin Johnson has joined Mark Wilson in the lead at the Hyundai Tournament of Champions with his opening-round 4-under-par 33-36=69.

Johnson started on fire, opening with four birdies and zero bogeys on the back nine before turning his attention to the front. He would add two more birdies, but trip over two bogeys on his second nine. While it's a surprise to see Mark Wilson atop the leaderboard, Johnson joining him was almost expected. The king of 54-hole events, he's won the last two on TOUR with the most recent to 2011 Barclays.

Brian Stuard ransacked TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64 during the first round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

It was all putting, all the time, today for Stuard. He splashed home par-saving rolls from 32'5" (par-4 12th) and 19'11" (par-3 17th), but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Stuard also fired in seven birdie putts from outside seven feet, four coming from 11 feet or longer. He walked off the course having gained 6.446 strokes with the flat stick, the third highest single-round putting performance for any golfer on TOUR this season. There is no way Stuard can maintain this pace on the putting surface but luckily this round gives him a nice cushion as he moves toward a much needed big finish.

Carl Pettersson played eight holes at 5-over before withdrawing from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans due to a wrist injury.

The Swede found one (of seven) fairways one his way toward a pair of bogeys, two double bogeys, and a lone birdie. As you might guess, the birdie came on the one hole where he striped a fairway. He found water off the tee on his lone par 3 played, leading to a double bogey. This goes in the books as his third mid-tournament WD of the season. Pettersson is now 4-for-14 on the season and continues to struggle following the anchored-putter ban.

Hennie Otto blitzed his final nine holes to set a target of 9-under-par 33-30=63 at the Volvo China Open; by the end of play it was a figure no-one had matched and left him holding a 2 shot advantage over second placed Bernd Wiesberger, with four players T3 a shot further back.

The South African started from the tenth tee and played the back nine well, ticking birdies at 11, 15 and 17. But upon making the turn he set fire to the Topwin Golf & CC layout. He made red at 2, 3, 5 and 7 before adding icing on the cake with an eagle-3 on the 558-yard par-five 8th. His stats were naturally impressive: he hit 12 of 14 fairways, found 15 greens in regulation, saved par all 3 times he needed to, and required a mere 24 putts. The 63 gives him a fourth sole R1 lead on the European Tour, but his first since the 2003 British Open. This form is a surprise: he's made the cut just once in his last 7 European Tour starts.

Zach Wright will get his first taste of PGA TOUR action as he make an appearance at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The senior at LSU was recently named to the 2016 Palmer Cup team, where he'll face off against Team Europe in the Ryder Cup style event later this summer. Wright posted impressive results during his senior season to move up to 39th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and 11th in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings. Wright made the move by taking top individual honors at events such as The Prestige at PGA West and the Valspar Collegiate. In on a sponsor's invite this week, gamers should tread lightly in fantasy formats but keep an eye on Wright because he could be making his way to the PGA TOUR sooner rather than later.

For the second straight week Colt Knost pulled his name out of the field prior to the start of the event, this time it's the Zurich Classic of New Orleans that he chooses not to play.

The Dallas resident backed out of last week's Valero Texas Open on Tuesday afternoon and does so again today. There is no official reason cited for the pre-tournament WDs but Knost responded to a fan last week on Twitter by saying, "hope to be back next week." Obviously that hope did not come to fruition but it also shows this shouldn't be a long-term absence. Knost ranks 78th in the FedExCup standings after a 13-for-14 start to the season, so he can afford to take a few weeks off if he has a nagging injury or personal matter to attend to.

Marc Turnesa torched LaTour Golf Club to the tune of an 8-under-par 30-34=64 to lead the four-pack of qualifiers into this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Joining him will be Dalton Ward (-7), Matt Mabrey (-7), and Jordan Payne (-7).

Turnesa took it lowest today on LaTour's 7,142 yard layout, but Mabrey was the lone qualifier to author a bogey-free round today. Turnesa is also the most seasoned of the four as he makes his 110th PGA TOUR start, including a win at the 2008 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He will be making his fifth start of the season, with a 1-for-4 record thus far, including a missed cut at last week's Valero Texas Open. Ward will be making his second career PGA TOUR start. The Memphis alum Jordan Payne will also be making his second PGA TOUR appearance (MC at 2010 Viking Classic). Sticking with the theme, Tulsa product Matt Mabrey has a lone PGA TOUR start which came in the form of a missed cut at the 2015 U.S. Open.

LSU alum Ben Taylor will return to his old stomping grounds for a start at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Englishman who played for the European side of the 2013 Palmer Cup will be making his first PGA TOUR start on American soil. His lone start to date was a missed cut at the 2015 Open Championship played at St. Andrews Golf Club. Taylor joined LSU prior to his junior year and was a member of squad that secured SEC and NCAA team championships during his senior season, so he knows how to win. He recently announced he will be playing on the Mackenzie Tour in 2016, just north of the border. A strong finish this week would provide a nice confidence booster as he embarks on the journey of professional golf.

Wesley Bryan cruised to a four-stroke victory at the El Bosque Mexico Championship with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round to end the week at 19-under 269.

This is Bryan's second win in 2016, making him the first true lock for a 2016-17 PGA TOUR card via the 2016 Web.com Tour. He circled seven birdies and squared two bogeys on his trot around El Bosque CC, easily passing 54-hole leader Brad Fritsch in the process. Should the University of South Carolina product earn a third title, he would be immediately promoted to the PGA TOUR for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.

Lifted by an eagle at the penultimate hole, Soomin Lee completed a closing 1-under-par 39-32=71 to win the weather-hit Shenzhen International in China by two shots.

Returning to the course after a further delay for fog on Monday morning, Lee resumed his round in a tie for the lead with Lee Slattery and Alexander Levy. The Korean made par at 14 and 15 and then made his big move with a birdie-2 at 16 followed by an eagle-3 at the 575-yard 16th. That allowed him to bogey the last and finish off a somewhat interrupted wire-to-wire win with 16-under 272. He finished two in front of Joost Luiten and Brandon Stone while Levy, Slattery and Scott Hend shared T4 on 13-under. "I got a big chance in Malaysia but I didn't make it because I was really, really nervous. Now I made it," said the 22-year-old, whose victory came on just his sixth European Tour start. With a win, a T2 and a T3 already, Lee looks a player to keep a close eye on, especially when the Tour visits the Far East.

Web.com Tour grad Martin Piller patched together a 2-under-par 33-37=70 in today's final round of the Valero Texas Open to wrap his third appearance on 9-under 279, up two on the leaderboard into a five-way T4, and good for a career best -- and first top 10 -- in his 35th start.

The Dallas native and resident enjoyed his return to TPC San Antonio, last appearing in 2011 and posting a previous-best T23. His previous mark on TOUR was T19 at the 2015 Barbasol Championship. The 30-year-old, who's a five-time winner on the WCT, actually surged into the outright lead on Sunday, making the turn on 10-under total following a three-birdie 33. After a routine par-4 on the 10th, he led by one over three players, including eventual champ Charley Hoffman who was two groups behind in the penultimate threesome. Piller saved par on the 11th and then canned a 12-footer for birdie-3 at 12 to extend to -11. He found the front, greenside bunker on the par-3 13th and airmailed his second over the green, leading to a two-putt double bogey-5. It was Piller's only blemish on the card but five pars followed and he finished three in arrears.

Overnight leader Ricky Barnes back-pedaled to a 2-over-par 38-36=74 in today's final round of the Valero Texas Open for a 72-hole total of 9-under 279, down three on the leaderboard into a five-way T4, three adrift of champion Charley Hoffman.

Barnes led the Heritage in scrambling last week at 86.49 percent. It carried over for the first three rounds this week, but he went 1-for-6 on Sunday, dropping to 0-for-3 on TOUR when the 54-hole leader/co-leader. The 35-year-old began the finale on 11-under, leading by one over playing competitor and 18- and 36-hole leader Brendan Steele, who shot 75. He led by two over Hoffman, who was playing one threesome ahead. Barnes bogeyed the first, sixth and ninth to overshadow a 6'2" birdie-3 at 4, but was still T2 at the turn, just one back of Martin Piller (thru 10 holes). Further bogeys on 10 and 12 however, knocked him out of contention, though he did manage to circle the 13th and 18th for back-to-back top 10s (last time was 2010) and a season best in his 16th start.
