Spencer Levin is listed in the published field of next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.

This is a surprise. We weren't expecting to see him commit to an event until Pebble Beach in two weeks. Of course, nothing matters until he sticks his peg in the ground on Thursday, but today's news is better than the alternative. Remember that he's taken additional time to recover from surgery on his left thumb and just might scrap the entire season if he can't give it a go.

Brian Davis preps for his first PGA TOUR start in over a year as he turns his attention to Sedgefield Country Club at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Englishman was last seen on the PGA TOUR in June of 2016 with results that went MC-WD-WD-MC before shutting it down for neck and back pains. He's made five rehab starts on the Web.com Tour over the last 10 weeks and is now going to try his hand on the big stage. Davis has five starts on a medical extension, needing $690,010 to fulfill the terms necessary to return to the Web.com graduate reshuffle category. The 43-year-old has never finished better than T27 at this event (8 starts) and posted nothing better than a T48 in his recent rehab starts. Gamers can safely take the wait-and-see approach with this one.

Brandt Snedeker has announced his intentions to put away the sticks indefinitely due to a sternum joint (rib) injury that just isn't healing.

Snedeker has posted a trail of WDs recently due to the rib injury that flared up just before The Open. There was hope that more than a month of rest would help him gear up for a run in the FedExCup Playoffs. Instead, Snedeker provided an update via Twitter saying, "I have not progressed in my rehab like we would have hoped and therefore will be shutting it down for an indefinite period of time." This is a very serious issue considering the announcement he made back in 2013 about his ribs having low bone turnover, forcing him to take medication for the problem. Season-long gamers can cut ties with the Vandy product and wish him a speedy recovery (hopefully in early 2018).

Anthony Wall ended a 16-year drought to win last year's Paul Lawrie Match Play in Scotland but he'll put his title on the line on German soil this week as the tournament switches to Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Bavaria.

Wall beat Alex Noren in last year's final to secure his first European Tour win since 2000 and will start his bid to win it once more against another Swede after being drawn with Kristoffer Broberg in Thursday's first round (08:40 local). The veteran Englishman, seeded 9th, has played this week's venue but doesn't have the same positive memories having missed the cut on the Beckenbauer Course at Bad Griesbach two years ago. Better news is to be found in Wall's recent form. After a poor run of results, he posted T31 in the BMW International Open on his last trip to Germany, improved to T20 in the Irish Open and, on his latest start, banked T4 in the Scottish Open to register his first top 10 since winning last year's Paul Lawrie.

Richie Ramsay is the man to chase in this week’s Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Bavaria.

The bookmakers favorite this week, the Scot has plenty to back up those claims. First up he has a strong 5-2 record in the tournament. Moreover he has twice been defeated by players who went on to make the last four (his only other pro experience in head to head golf was a first round defeat to Louis Oosthuizen in the 2013 WGC World Match Play, but he was the 2006 U.S. Amateur champion). Add in his form and the picture is complete. He was a superb T2 in the Irish Open before contending both the Scottish Open and Open Championship and then recorded T8 in the European Open, coincidentally also in Germany. The only downside is his course experience which stretches to no more than one round (a 74 before a DQ last year). He plays Tom Lewis in round one.

Wake Forest alum Webb Simpson takes his talents back home to Greensboro, North Carolina, for a ninth appearance at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Charlotte resident used to come to this event as a teenager and played his college golf at nearby Wake Forest. The event already meant a lot to him for those two reasons but it got elevated to another level when he made Sedgefield Country Club the site of his first win (2011 Wyndham Championship). The tournament means so much to him that he named his third child after the event. Since the win he's rattled off four top 25s in five return trips. More recently, Simpson has collected five straight top 40s to move into the 37th slot in the FedExCup standings. A good mix of course history and current form makes Simpson a strong play in all fantasy formats.

Y.E. Yang twirled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 35-30=65 during the Monday qualifier into the Wyndham Championship, earning top honors ahead of other qualifiers: Jason Widener (-5), Brad Miller (-4), and Ted Purdy (-4).

Yang missed the cut at last week's PGA Championship with rounds of 76-79=155 (+13). The PGA TOUR veteran shook off the disappointment and torched the course today. This will be his ninth start of the season, third time getting into the field via open qualifying (The Greenbrier Classic, Byron Nelson). Along with Yang, Jason Widener will be an interesting name to watch this week. Widener is a 46-year-old Greensboro native who is now a teaching pro. Third is Brad Miller, will be making just his second career PGA TOUR start. The first came back in 2015 at this same event, he went on to miss the cut that year). Finally, Ted Purdy was the last qualifier, and he will be making his 284th career start this week. He hasn't earned a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since the 2010 AT&T National.

Making his major championship debut, World No. 81 Jordan Smith enjoyed a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to wrap on 1-under 283, up 17 places to T9, seven back of champion Justin Thomas.

The Englishman won his first European Tour title two weeks ago (Porsche European Open), winning in a playoff in his 24th career start. He was one of eight players making their major debuts this week at Quail Hollow and the only one to make the cut. After kicking off in 70-75-70, the 24-year-old began T26 on 2-over, four shy of the overnight top 10. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.539 SG: Approach-the-Green and 3.318 SG: Tee-to-Green. Smith was bogey-free 4-under thru 17 holes, circling Nos. 5, 7, 14 and 16, two from between 11 and 30 feet, before walking off with bogey-5. He posted 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.509 SG: Putting. Smith, who was playing his first PGA TOUR event, was also top first-timer of 28 that were making their PGA Championship debuts.

World No 27 Louis Oosthuizen tacked on a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship for a four-day tally of 6-under 278, up two spots into a season-tying-best T2, two shy of champion Justin Thomas, who shot 68.

The 34-year-old was chasing his second major title in his 37th major appearance but settles for his fourth runner-up, one in each of the four major tournaments. It's his fourth top 25 in nine PGA's and first top 10, brushing aside T15 in 2014 (Valhalla). The South African posts his eighth top 25 of the season in 15 starts and third top 10, all three doubling as top 3s, and matching a T2 at THE PLAYERS. After opening in 70-67-71, he began T4, two shy of 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, Oosty found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.825 strokes around-the-green. He squared three bogey-5s at holes 1, 11 and 16 (3-putt from 90'1"), offset by a pitch-in eagle-3 at 15 from 34 yards away and birdies at 7 and a walk-off birdie-3 from 52'11". Oosty posted 1.846 putts per GIR and 0.046 SG: Putting, taking 31 total putts.

Beginning two strokes back, World No. 14 Justin Thomas fired a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to wrap on 8-under 276, up three places on the day and good for a two-shot win over Francesco Molinari, Patrick Reed and Louis Oosthuizen.

The 24-year-old, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, bags his first major title in his 10th major appearance. It's his fourth top 25 in majors and second top 10, supplanting a previous-best T9 at the 2017 U.S. Open, where he was T2 thru 54 holes. The Kentuckian is the season-leader on TOUR now with four victories in 21 starts and claims his fifth overall TOUR title in his 90th career event (86 pro). After kicking off in 73-66-69, he began T4, trailing 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he hit seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.939 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.472 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Alabama product squared three bogey-5s at Nos. 1, 3 and 18, outbalanced by six birdies at 2, 7, 9, 10, 13 and 17, three from between 14 and 37 feet, adding a chip-in birdie-2 at 13 from 39'7" away. He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 2.355 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. This was Thomas' third PGA, second top 25 (T18/2015) and first top 10.

World No. 28 Patrick Reed fashioned a 4-under-par 33-34-67 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to post 6-under 278, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T2, matching the 72-hole clubhouse lead of Francesco Molinari and tying the low round in the clubhouse with four others. UPDATE: With play completed, Reed finished a season-best T2, two short of champion Justin Thomas, who shot 68.

After opening in 69-73-69, the 27-year-old began T7 on 2-under, five short of 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner. Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, he hit nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.938 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.568 tee-to-green. The Texan carded seven birdies at holes 3, 4, 6, 7, 10, 14 and 15, all from inside of 15 feet, taking some luster off with three bogey-5s at 2, 5 and 18, all failed scrambles. This was his fourth PGA, second straight top 25 and first top 10, and his seventh top 25 in 16 major appearances and first top 10, brushing aside T12 at the 2016 Open (Royal Troon). Reed's previous best this season was T5 at the Travelers five starts ago.

World No. 21 Francesco Molinari painted a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the 99th PGA Championship to reach 6-under 278, up two places on the live leaderboard to solo 5th, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and matching the low round of the day thus far with three others. UPDATE: With play completed, Molinari finished a career-TOUR-best T2, two back of champion Justin Thomas..

After kicking off in 73-64-74, the 34-year-old began T7 on 2-under, five back of 54-hole leader Kevin Kisner. Playing out of the sixth-to-last twosome, he landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 2.178 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.813 tee-to-green. The Italian squared two bogeys at Nos. 10 (3-putt from 35'0") and 16, offset by six birdies at 1, 7, 11, 12, 14 and 15, three from between 10 and 16 feet, adding a 27-footer from off the green at the par-5 15th. He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.971 SG: Putting, taking 26 total putts. This was Molinari's ninth PGA, third top 25 and second top 10 (T10 in 2009 debut). Overall, it was his 33rd major and third top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T9 at the 2013 Open (Muirfield).
