In his most recent blog entry, Blake Adams relayed that he will undergo surgery on his left hip on Tuesday as previously expected.

Adams wrote: "After a MRI, X-rays, strength tests, and a Bio-Motion exam, it was determined by Dr. [Marc] Philippon and his staff [at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo.] that I should undergo Hip Arthroscopy Surgery rather than a Total Hip Replacement. This was certainly a relief because at my age (37), the idea of having a Total Hip Replaced is mind-blowing! Dr. Philippon will remove the cyst, the bone spurs, shave and reshape my femur, and repair a torn labrum. Prior to my appointment, I was aware of the cyst and bone spurs. However, the torn labrum was definitely news to me and to be honest, I have no idea when it tore! Regardless, I am happy and comfortable with the diagnosis and I am looking forward to getting healthy." He doesn't know how soon he'll be able to return to competition, but given the timing, expect him to take as much time as necessary. He doesn't want to burn even one start that would be more valuable attached to a medical extension should he need one.

Jon Rahm could only add a 4-over-par 40-35=75 to his opening 74 and, at 7-over 149, missed the cut in the Andalucia Valderrama Masters by three shots.

Rahm's fate was all but secured after the outward 40 today which included bogeys at 13, 16, 17 and 18 and he couldn't repair the damage coming home to the disappointment of his home Spanish fans. Not what the sponsors wanted and the World No. 5, like many before him, ends his Valderrama debut 1-down to the former Ryder Cup venue. Others to miss the cut included: 148- Robert Karlsson ... 150- Stephen Gallacher, Gregory Bourdy, Marcel Siem ... 151 Mikko Ilonen ... 154- Alvaro Quiros ... 159- Gregory Havret.

Sergio Garcia had to settle for an even-par 34-37=71 in his second round at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters but he'll go into the final 36 holes just one off leader Joost Luiten after posting 5-under 137 at the halfway mark.

The tournament host has had much better days on what he calls his favorite track in the world but his opening 67 gave him breathing space and conditions were harder for him in the afternoon session today. He took his score to 6-under at the turn following birdies at 4 and 9 against a bogey at 8 for the second day running but then hit a sticky patch with five pars along with dropped shots at 12 and 16, the latter after a three-putt. Two big blows to the par-5 17th set up a bounceback birdie and Garcia escaped from sand at the last to stay in the thick of contention. Given his course record of 10 top 10s, he's the man to beat going into the final 36 holes although he revealed later that he'd aggravated a wrist injury and needs to manage it with anti-inflammatories.

Joost Luiten holed his second shot at the par-5 11th hole for the rarest of birds, that albatross helping him to a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in round two of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters and the new clubhouse lead of 6-under 136.

It was quite a ride for the Dutchman at Valderrama today as he dropped shots on the other two longs holes, meaning his scores on the par 5s at 4, 11 and 17 were the unlikely combination of 6-2-6. After an even-par first nine, the joint overnight leader bogeyed 10 but then played the next two holes in 4-under after draining his four-iron from 227 yards and following it with birdie-2 at the next. It briefly gave him a three-shot lead but he fell back from 8-under to 6-under after Valderrama bit back and he bogeyed 15 and 17 before parring the last.

Luke List styled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of The CJ CUP at Nine Bridges, climbing to 9-under 135 on the week, good for a one-shot lead at the midpoint.

List split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation on day one. Today, he posted similar numbers, except one fewer GIR. Still, the results were much different at he traded six birdies with a pair of bogeys in R1 but kept a clean card en route to five birdies today. The big hitter always packs a scoring punch when there are four par 5s on a course, currently 5-under on the par 5s for the week. This will go in the books as his second career 54-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR, previously finishing T14 at the 2016 RBC Canadian Open after leading at the midpoint. The 32-year-old has five career top 10s in 95 starts but he's still searching for his maiden win.

Joost Luiten jumped out of the pack with five birdies in his final seven holes to post a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in round one of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain and share the early clubhouse lead with tournament host Sergio Garcia. UPDATE With afternoon scoring tough, Luiten and Garcia ended the day still tied for T1.

While Garcia's record at the par 71 is unsurpassed, Luiten also has some notable history at Valderrama having finished fifth (2010) and solo second (2016) in last year's Open de Espana held there. Today's lap of the former Ryder Cup venue was his best by three shots although for 11 holes there was no hint of him breaking his previous mark. The Dutchman picked up an early shot at 12 having started at 10 but it was pars the rest of the way until he bogeyed No. 2. But from even par after 11 holes, Luiten took flight with red circles at 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 to shoot 66, a score matched shortly after by local hero Garcia. That's one in front of England's Robert Rock and Pablo Larrazabal.

Tournament host Sergio Garcia birdied all four par 3s in a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in round one of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, good enough for a piece of the clubhouse lead with Joost Luiten after the morning session. UPDATE Garcia ended the day T1, a shot clear of Robert Rock and Pablo Larrazabal.

Garcia set the tone with an opening circle and then put his first pair of 2s on the card with gains at 12 and 15. Another birdie at 18 secured the local hero an outward 32 before he swallowed his first bogey of the day at the par 71's opening hole. The Spaniard responded by ticking the par-3 3rd and par-5 4th and completed his set of deuces at the 149-yard 6th. That took him to six-under but a dropped shot at 17 put him back into a tie with Luiten, who had posted his 66 in the previous group. The pair have a one-shot lead over Robert Rock. Garcia, who hit 14 of 18 greens today, is the ultimate course horse this week after posting 10 top 10s in his previous 11 appearances at Valderrama.

FedExCup Champion and 2017 Player of the Year Justin Thomas tore through The Club at Nine Bridges to the tune of a 9-under-par 34-29=63 during round one of the inaugural CJ CUP, racing out to an early three-shot lead over the field.

Thomas opened his week on the back nine and swallowed a bogey on the par-4 10th. He turned on the scoring machine from there as he rattled off two eagles and four birdies in a seven-hole stretch, starting with an eagle at the par-5 12th. That included a hole-out birdie from the greenside bunker at the 13th and another hole out for birdie at the 16th (chip from just off the green). He then belted a drive at the 18th to give himself a wedge into the par-5 18th island green. Thomas cruised home from there with a comfortable 2-under 34 on his way into the clubhouse. After the round, Thomas said he is playing on Empty right now and is looking forward to the time off after this week. The youngster may be ready to hang it up for the year, but he's certainly not mailing anything in this week, looking to earn another game ball for his father's trophy wall.

Sergio Garcia has plenty on his plate at this week's Andalucia Valderrama Masters but incredible course form at his home venue suggests a title challenge is likely.

In 11 appearances at the course, the Spaniard has 10 top 10s, including a victory in 2011. No wonder he describes it in glowing terms. "This is my favorite golf course ever and it’s the kind of golf course that even though it’s not long, it challenges you," he told europeantour.com. "It’s tight and it’s always asking you to hit good shots, all kinds of shots. They are small greens so your iron play has to be spot on and if you miss the greens it’s tricky. It’s just a great, solid golf course." The tournament is hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation and, as well as his off-course activities, he's also trying to close the gap on Tommy Fleetwood. The margin is substantial but second-placed Sergio has the chance to narrow it with Fleetwood sitting this one out. The Masters champion was only T30 in Italy but Valderrama is far more suited to his talents.

Sung Kang heads home to Jeju Island, South Korea, for this week's inaugural CJ CUP at NINE BRIDGES.

Kang threw his name into the mix last week in Malaysia (CIMB Classic), finishing in a share of third place by week's end. It was the third podium finish of his PGA TOUR career, his second in the last seven months. The late-blooming 30-year-old is still searching for his first PGA TOUR victory. This week presents a good opportunity as Kang grew up on Jeju Island so he should be quite comfortable with the culture and climate of the area. Adding to his appeal, both of his career wins as a pro golfer have come in Korea. Gamers should certainly give a long look to Kang this week, in all formats.

Jon Rahm will return to Valderrama as one of the main stars of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, just a few years after he walked the fairways in awe of his heroes.

Back when the European Tour season ended at Valderrama with the Volvo Masters it was often noted that the track had much in common with Wentworth. It was an observation based on players doing well at both. But this week there is another possibility. English golfers who attended Wentworth as kids seem to be inspired playing there in May; might the same be true for Rahm, whose family always flew down here for him to watch the stars, this October? He's played course in amateur events and as prep this summer (in July). It's tightness might be a problem, but then again he played Colonial very well this year and has topped the Greens in Regulation stats in two of his last three starts. The dream scenario is a Rahm-Garcia Sunday shootout and it's not fanciful.

Patrick Cantlay was one of five early-week withdraws from this week's CJ CUP at Nine Bridges field, delaying the start of his sophomore campaign for at least one more week.

In limited starts, Cantlay cruised to a 13-for-13 record in his rookie season, making it all the way to East Lake in the process. It was a long time coming after missing more than two years worth of action due to injuries and tragedy. There was no reason given for this pre-tournament WD, but a long flight wrecking havoc on the back can't be ruled out. For the time being, Cantlay is still listed on the WGC-HSBC Champions player profile page, suggesting he could still make his season debut next week in China. Joining Cantlay as early-week WDs in Korea are Jason Dufner, Russell Knox, Mackenzie Hughes, and Ernie Els. Gamers should remove them all from their weekly lineups.
