Matt Jones earned a share of the very early clubhouse lead at the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in his opening round.

After opening with a birdie conversion from 11'11" at the par-4 10th hole, the Aussie then three-jacked the par-3 11th from 51 inches for double bogey. A bogey at the par-4 15th ensued, but he recovered and played his final 12 holes in bogey-free 4-under. The set of par breakers including an eight-yard hole-out for eagle at the drivable par-4 fourth and a conventional roll from 27'1" at the par-4 fifth.

Tim Clark has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship due to an elbow injury.

He had to call it quits at the turn of his second round of The Barclays with the same problem. At 38th in the FedExCup standings, Clark will advance to next week's BMW Championship, but the more relevant concern for gamers is his health long-term. Needless to say, if he plays at Cherry Hills, let him go it alone.

Jason Dufner has been removed from the published field of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

That he appeared in the field in the first place was news. After falling 17 spots to 74th in the FedExCup standings, there's little reason to risk aggravating his injury (two bulging discs in his neck) for what might be only one week of action.

Tiger Woods announced on his website today that he has fired swing coach Sean Foley.

The statement in its entirety: "I'd like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship. Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him. With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event at Isleworth in Orlando, this is the right time to end our professional relationship. Presently, I do not have a coach, and there is no timetable for hiring one." Foley responded as follows: "My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far, and I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together. It was a lifelong ambition of mine to teach the best player of all time in our sport. I am both grateful for the things we had the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as the enduring friendship we have built. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him."

Max Homa shared 60th place at Pumpkin Ridge today and finished comfortably at 17th in earnings thanks to a win and another two top 10s. Because he made eight starts on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, he will not qualify as a rookie in his first year with a card. However, 13 of his fellow graduates are rookie eligible. The other 24 grads (* = 2014-15 PGA TOUR rookie): *Carlos Ortiz (1st); *Andrew Putnam (2nd); *Zack Sucher (3rd); *Adam Hadwin (4th); *Justin Thomas (5th); Alex Cejka (6th); *Blayne Barber (7th); *Tony Finau (8th); Jason Gore (9th); Steven Alker (10th); Andres Gonzales (11th); *Jon Curran (12th); Derek Fathauer (13th); Cameron Percy (14th); *Daniel Berger (15th); *Jonathan Randolph (16th); *Mark Hubbard (18th); Steve Wheatcroft (19th); Ryan Armour (20th); *Byron Smith (21st); Bill Lunde (22nd); Fabian Gomez (23rd); *Roger Sloan (24th); Kyle Reifers (25th).

Carlos Ortiz held on for an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open and claimed his third Web.com Tour title of the season.

Ortiz traded three birdies for three bogeys on his final lap around Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge to post 14-under 272. The irons were the key to his success, landing 14 GIR in the finale and ranking third for the week with 57. With this victory, Ortiz will avoid all reshuffles on the PGA TOUR via as a three-time winner and the leader of the final regular season money list. He is the 10th player in Web.com Tour history, and first since 2009 when Michael Sim completed the feat, to receive a battlefield promotion to the PGA TOUR. Of course, given that the season-ending Wyndham Championship was last week, the promotion is nothing more than an honorary badge for the record books.
