Bill Haas turned in the lowest round of the day in the third round of the Northern Trust Open when he signed for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64, and he leads in his attempt to defend his 2012 title at 12-under 201.

Haas failed to birdie the easy par-5 first hole, but got on the board with a birdie from 10 feet on the par-4 fifth hole. It would be his first of three birdies on the front nine, capped off by a 28'3" effort on the ninth. He quickly turned his attention to the inward nine at Riviera CC with a chip-in eagle from 19 yards on the par-4 10th. He added two more birdies on the back, both on the par 5s and both thanks to sand saves. The question isn't if he will have the lead entering the finale, but how wide of a margin the field will allow him.

Padraig Harrington birdied five of the last eight holes to shoot a 4-under-par 35-32=67 and take the first round lead at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

Beware the injured golfer. The three-time major winner withdrew from last week's BMW PGA Championship with a shoulder injury although he said participating at Royal County Down wasn't in question despite it not feeling 100 percent. He made a cautious start today with two birdies and two bogeys on the front nine before slipping over par with another dropped shot at 10. But in the slightly easier afternoon conditions, the Irishman produced a stunning surge with birdies at 11, 12, 13, 15 and 16 to jump to the top of the leaderboard. He split only 7 (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation but needed just 24 putts. Perhaps we've been here before. Harrington said a pre-tournament wrist injury before his 2008 Open win at Royal Birkdale took the pressure off and lower expectations could well be the key this week although they'll be raised after today's fast start.

Tom Gillis opened the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 4-under-par 32-34=66 to establish the very early clubhouse lead.

Given the relentless rain recently, lift, clean and place in closely mown areas is in effect for the first two rounds. Don't be surprised if that provision is extended into the weekend, especially if more rain falls. Gillis went out in the first threesome off the first tee at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas today and went 7-for-8 in scrambling with one bogey against five birdies. His longest conversion dropped for birdie from 19'10" at the par-3 fifth hole. He's looking to end an 0-for-4 skid that began with his first start of 2015 in January. The 46-year-old sat out over three months with lingering discomfort in his shoulder stemming from surgery for bone spurs in November.

Emiliano Grillo toughed out a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in his opening round to join Danny Willett and Søren Kjeldsen at the top of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open leaderboard.

On a day when Rory McIlroy couldn't break 80, Grillo kept battling away at windy Royal County Down and posted birdies at 17 and 18 to move into a tie at the top. He had three other par breakers on his card, at 1, 11 and 12, while he squared bogeys at 5, 15 and 16. The Argentine youngster split 8 (of 14) fairways, hit 12 greens in regulation and was 3-for-6 in scrambling.

Søren Kjeldsen suffered a walk-off bogey-6 at 18 but a 2-under-par 33-36=69 was enough to secure a share of the clubhouse lead on day one of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The Dane managed to hit 14 greens in regulation in the cold and blustering conditions at Royal County Down and that paved the way for a rare sub-70 lap on the iconic links. For now he's tied for the lead with England's Danny Willett and Argentine Emiliano Grillo. Kjeldsen started fast with three birdies in his first six holes. He wobbled with bogeys at 9 and 10 but got those shots back at 12 and 16 to climb back to 3-under. He split 9 (of 14) fairways and was 3-for-4 in scrambling, the only time he failed to get up and down coming at the last, the resulting bogey denying him the lead on his own.

Rory McIlroy failed to card a single birdie in a miserable 9-over-par 39-41=80 in the first round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

In harsh weather conditions at Royal County Down, McIlroy was blown completely off course and currently sits 108th and last in the field. His brutal morning lap featured nine bogeys and nine pars while his stats were a car crash. The four-time major champion split just 6 (of 14) fairways, hit only nine greens in regulation, was 1-for-9 in scrambling and took 36 putts. Credit to him, therefore, for speaking after his 18 holes of turmoil. "Nothing went well at all," McIlroy told Sky Sports. "I felt off the tee it was okay but as I got closer to the green the worse it got. My putting... my speed was off, I wasn't reading them properly and just lost confidence on the greens as the round went on." Today's round of 80 followed on from the 78 he carded on day two of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. The last time McIlroy shot 80? That infamous Sunday meltdown at the 2011 Masters.

Danny Willett dug out a 2-under-par 34-35=69 to post the early clubhouse lead in round one of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

In brutally tough conditions at Royal County Down, any round under par is worth its weight in gold and Willett bagged his by trading four birdies against just two bogeys. The Englishman, who finished T3 in this event, circled par breakers at three of the four par fives and also made a rare birdie at the 11th. He split only 7 (of 14) fairways but hit 12 greens in regulation. He kept his scorecard tidy by going 4-for-6 in scrambling.

Jason Day has chosen not to compete in this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Another one bites the dust, but at least we have ample time to adjust. It's possible that the conditions at TPC Four Seasons are at the core of many of these withdrawals, but tournament officials are still planning on crowning a champion at the conclusion of 72 holes. UPDATE: Mike McAllister of PGATOUR.com relayed to his followers on Twitter that Day experienced dizziness during today's pro-am. He'll return home to Ohio for an evaluation.

Ian Poulter alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's pulled out of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Poulter wrote, "I will not be competing this week in Texas, I picked up a slight strain in the Gym on Monday, so taking precautions and not chancing it." He didn't specify exactly what hurts, but he added in a follow-up tweet that he's not planning on playing again until the U.S. Open. He's been in good form, so this is a tough pill to swallow for some gamers, but that he's given us an entire day to adjust is appreciated. UPDATE: Mike McAllister of PGATOUR.com reported on Twitter that Poulter's injury is in his back.

Will Zalatoris has withdrawn from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship after requiring an appendectomy.

Talk about having a day. It was just a few hours ago that we notified you that he had received one of the last two sponsor exemptions into the tournament. However, as relayed by Golfweek.com, Zalatoris' mom said that Will awoke this morning with strong pain. Upon examination, doctors found a perforation and performed surgery immediately. "We hated hearing about Will’s medical issue this morning, but right now we’re just wishing him well for a speedy recovery, and we are confident he’ll be back playing in this tournament in the future," said David Corrigan, chairman of the tournament. Zalatoris is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

Troy Matteson navigated Gentle Creek Country Club in Prosper, Texas, in bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-31=62 in today's open qualifier for the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, good for a share of medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

The two-time PGA TOUR winner buried an eagle and five birdies on the modified track. Due to recent rain in the area, the 14th and 18th holes were converted to par 3s, giving the layout six for the four-spotter. Creighton Honeck also went bogey-free, scoring 7-under 29-33=62 with seven birdies. Austin Cook was the third to post 62, doing so with an eagle, six birdies and one bogey en route to respective nines of 32 and 30. Christopher Brown wrangled the final spot up for grabs with a 6-under 31-32=63. He poured in eight birdies before closing bogey-par-bogey. The field at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas is now complete at 156.

Alexander Levy of France completed the U.S. Open sectional qualifier in England in 11-under-par 66-67=133, good for medalist honors among 11.

The 24-year-old traded 14 birdies with three bogeys on the Old and New Courses at Walton Heath Golf Club in Surrey, England, to punch his ticket for his debut in the major. The other 10 exemptions into the field of 156 at Chambers Bay are as follows (* = survived 5-for-4 playoff): Shiv Kapur (134); John Parry (135); Alex Noren (136); Lucas Bjerregaard (137); Jason Palmer (137); Marcel Siem (138); Thomas Aiken* (139); Marcus Fraser* (139); Garth Mulroy* (139); Tjaart van der Walt* (139). Notables that failed to qualify include: 140--Peter Uihlein (winner of the 2010 U.S. Amateur at Chambers Bay); Padraig Harrington; Emiliano Grillo ... 141--Ross Fisher ... 143--Robert Karlsson ... 144--Nicolas Colsaerts ... 147--Mikko Ilonen ... 148--Scott Hend.
