Hunter Mahan posted a 6-under-par 31-35=66 on the host course in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

Mahan arrives in form and with a solid track record at this event, so today's effort is not surprising. He hit 16 greens and converted seven birdies, the longest of which disappearing from 14'8" at the seventh hole. He'd incur a bogey at the par-4 17th, failing to get up and down from the rough right and short of the putting surface. Mahan's aggregate is two strokes higher than Russell Knox, who played Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course today -- site of Mahan's second round on Friday -- but they are tied in relation to par.

Pablo Larrazábal maintained his recent stunning levels of golf to card a second round 6-under-par 33-33=66 which earned him the halfway lead in the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC on 14-under 130, three clear of Alexander Levy and Dylan Frittelli.

For most of Friday it was a continuation of the wonderful game the Spaniard has been displaying for the last week in China. He opened with four pars before ticking 5, 6 and 8 prior to the turn. He made mincemeat of the 317-yard par-4 11th, with an eagle-2, and followed it with a birdie-4 at the 12th. Another par breaker followed at 15 to open up a gap of four at the top. An 8'0" par saver at the short 16th meant he had played 81 holes without a bogey (carrying on from last week's Shenzhen International), but he finally squared a hole at 17. When he failed to get up-and-down for birdie at the par-5 18th his lead remained at three. This is his third solo lead at halfway and fifth including shares; he is 1-for-5 at converting the win. His 130 36-hole total equals the tournament low.

Dylan Frittelli torched Topwin Golf & CC for a bogey-free 9-under-par 30-33=63 in Friday’s second round at the Volvo China Open, posting 11-under 133 and surging into a three-shot clubhouse lead over compatriot George Coetzee.

The South African had mixed four birdies with two bogeys in his opening lap of 70 but cashed in on his morning tee-time in Beijing today to leap from T26 to first spot. Frittelli started fast, opening with a red number at 10 and pouring in eagle-2 at the short 290-yard par-4 11th. After settling with three pars, he splashed three more birdies at 15, 17 and 18 to turn in just 30 blows. The World No. 123 kept the momentum going with further gains at 3, 6 and 8 coming home. The 26-year-old has marked gamers’ cards in recent months with a run of four top 20s in his last five worldwide starts including T5 in last week’s event in China, the Shenzhen International. Frittelli graduated from the Challenge Tour last year and currently slots in at 57th on the Race to Dubai. His best European Tour finish is T2 in 2015’s Australian PGA Championship.

Texas natives Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer tag-teamed TPC Louisiana in round one of the Zurich Classic, walking off the course with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 to grab a share of the early lead in Avondale, Louisiana.

It was steady ball-striking that allowed them team to rack up six birdies today, but it was great scrambling that glued this round together. Particularly on the back nine where they saved par from 8'3", 11'0", and 6'3" to maintain a clean card instead of dropping a shot or two. Spieth also added a bonus birdie when he holed out a 36-yard chip at the par-3 14th. Given their ability to rack up birdies in bunches, gamers probably expected this team to shine in the four-ball format which will take place tomorrow as well as Sunday, but they proved today that alternate shot suits them just fine. They will enter round two with a share of the lead with Ryan Ruffels & Kyle Stanley.

Playing alternate shot on day one of the Zurich Classic, Kyle Stanley and Ryan Ruffels blitzed TPC Louisiana with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to claim the early title of clubhouse leaders.

This duo opened their week on the 10th tee and rattled off four straight birdies to start the day. They settled for a 13'5" par saver at the par-3 14th, but added four more circles on the homeward nine. This team arrived with lofty expectations, tee-to-green, but their flat sticks would be the wildcard. They showed up in a big way today, converting six putts from outside eight feet on the day (three apiece). Ball-striking was still the main asset as they gave themselves 13 birdie looks from inside 25 feet today. Playing without any TOUR status, the 18-year-old Ruffels would love to maintain this momentum all week, while Stanley is still searching for his second career TOUR win, failing to reach the winner's circle since the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Perhaps two extra set of eyes will help him on the greens this week.

Playing foursomes on day one of the Zurich Classic, K.J. Choi and Charlie Wi coasted to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to stake their claim as early clubhouse leaders with play still in progress. UPDATE: Kyle Stanley & Ryan Ruffels would later post a 6-under 66 to surpass Choi & Wi.

The South Korean tandem opened their week on the 10th tee and rattled off five pars and a bogey before rounding into gear. From there, they pieced together a four-hole birdie train that went through the turn and included three putts converted from outside 18 feet, two of them knocked in by Choi. Putting was the story of the day for this duo who walked off the course with seven putts splashed in from outside nine feet, six of those from outside 13 feet. Arriving without much form this week, they are leaning on course knowledge as they both have a podium finish to their credit at TPC Louisiana in 15 previous combined trips to the Pete Dye design.

China specialist Alexander Levy thrashed a nine-under-par 33-30=63 to set the clubhouse target early in round one of the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC.

The Frenchman was a winner of the China Open in 2014 and in total has five top ten finished in 11 visits to the country. Just last week a round one 74 in the Shenzhen International couldn't stop him finishing T8 as he added 68-64-69; with a smart start this week he might easily add a second China Open title. Opening on the back nine he ticked 13, 15 and 17 before blitzing the front nine. He splashed red across 2, 3, 4 and 5 then closed out with back-to-back birdies at 8 and 9. It is the third time he has carded 63 in China, but his career-low in the country remains the 62 he made in round two of his win in 2014. He lunched holding a one shot lead over Spain's Pablo Larrazabal who was three ahead of Peter Hanson and Jame Morrison in third. No less than 19 players carded 3-under or better on a day of low scoring.

World No. 6 Henrik Stenson makes his tourney debut at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and is teamed with 2015 champ and World No. 8 Justin Rose.

The power-packed couple checks in as the pre-tourney faves outright (11/2) but heading in polar opposite directions. The Swede arrives 72nd in FedExCup points with two top 10s in six starts, but off three straight missed cuts -- the first time that's happened to him since 2011 -- most recently by two at the Masters (77-75). Rose arrives 9th in FEC points with four top 10s in eight starts, all doubling as top 5s, including solo second at the Sony and P2 at the Masters. Both are 4-timer Ryder Cuppers, major champions, went 1-2 at the 2016 Rio Games, and are multiple participants on various National Teams. Rose is 8-for-11 in NOLA with four top 10s, highlighted by the win in 2015 (as 54-hole co-leader), his most recent of seven TOUR titles. Stenson is a 5-time TOUR winner, most recently at the 2016 Open Championship.

Bernd Wiesberger will be looking to complete a Chinese double when he tees it up in the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC this week.

Prior to last week Wiesberger’s record in China was incredibly consistent, but the big week was lacking. He’d made 11 starts, always played the weekend, but never actually found the top ten. He made up for that with victory in the Shenzhen International. You could argue that logbook is much like his career and it was definitely like his last 10 starts: all cuts made, eight finishes of T7 or better, finally he got the win. If his finish of T28 on this course last year puts gamers off it maybe should not because he posted 65 and 69 to lie T2 after 36 holes. His weekend was obviously a bit off, but he can clearly play the track and his confidence must be sky high.

Chase Koepka readies for his first start on the PGA TOUR, playing alongside his brother at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

World No. 1460 is getting his first crack at the big stage thanks to an invite from his big brother, Brooks. The University of South Florida product won four times during his college days, and now spends most of his time overseas. Across stroke-play events on the European Tour and Challenge Tour, the younger Koepka is just 2-for-8 so it's been a slow start to his professional career. The pedigree is there and this brother tandem will know each other's games better than any other team in the field this week, making them a very intriguing team to watch. With official money, FedExCup Points, and winning exemptions up for grabs this week, this could be a career-changing week for the 23-year-old.

Hugely promising youngster Hao Tong Li will defend his Volvo China Open title at Topwin Golf & CC in Beijing this week.

The 21-year-old’s victory 12 months ago was far from being a surprise, after he had three times gone extremely close to bettering European Tour fields. On the first of those occasions he lost a play-off in the 2015 Shenzhen International, a week later he was tied for the 54-hole lead in this event before finishing T6 and then he closed out 2015 by heading into the final round of the WGC HSBC Champions tournament one back of the lead (he finished T7). Two back of the lead in this event last year with 18 holes to play he used the experience of the near misses to good effect, posting a 64 to prevail by three shots. He was T5 in the Maybank Championship but comes into the week off the back of two missed cuts; he posted 75-75 last week in Shenzhen but also missed the weekend there ahead of last year’s win.

World No. 432 Kevin Tway fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open for a four-day tally of 9-under 279, up one spot into a two-way T3, and a career best in his 44th career start.

The 28-year-old posted rounds of 70-68-72-69 to finish three adrift of overnight leader and champion Kevin Chappell. Not only is the T3 a career best, it's his first top-25 finish, brushing aside a T26 at the 2014 Travelers. The Oklahoma State product was making his second visit to TPC San Antonio after a missed cut by five in 2014 (74-78). The podium comes in his 12th start of the season, supplanting a previous-best T32 in his last start at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. The Web.com Tour grad began in a 7-way logjam on 6-under (T4), two back. He outpaced double bogey-6 at six and bogey-4 at 16 with six birdies on Nos. 1, 2, 4, 10, 15 and 17. Tway mustered eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.498 SG: Putting.
