Seamus Power tore apart TPC Wakefield Plantation for a course-record, bogey-free, 10-under-par 31-30=61 in today's opening round of the Web.com Tour's Rex Hospital Open.

Yes, he's the overnight leader in Raleigh. The 27-year-old Irishman split 10 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation en route to eight birdies and a walk-off eagle at the par-5 ninth hole. He bettered the old course record by one stroke shot three times, most recently by Andrew Putnam in 2013. Power is 83rd in what is his rookie season on the Web.com Tour. With a bogey-free 63, journeyman Kyle Thompson is alone in second place at TPC Wakefield Plantation. Dominic Bozzelli is also all by himself in third place, three swings in arrears.

Danny Lee crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Going out in the first threesome off the 10th tee in the afternoon wave, Lee was 1-over through seven. He then holed out from 190 yards for an ace at the par-3 17th to get into red numbers. Lee retained position with a par save from 10'4" at the par-4 18th. After scoring birdie-bogey on Nos. 5 and 6, respectively, he connected for another eagle, this time conventionally from 23'2" at the par-5 seventh hole. At the time he signed his card, he was the only player in the field with as many as two eagles, but he's five strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Playing in the final group of the day, Maximilian Kieffer spun a 4-under-par 34-33=67 to share the lead after the first round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

The German looked set to surpass Padraig Harrington's target after hitting 5-under with three to play but he bogeyed Royal County Down's tough par-4 8th to fall back into a tie. Kieffer made an early move with an eagle-3 at the 12th before swallowing bogeys at 13 and 15. That put him back in the pack before he surged to the front of the field with five birdies in the next nine holes. On a day when fairways were hard to split, Kieffer found just six although he still hit 14 greens in regulation. This is the first time he's led/co-led after round one since doing it twice in three tournaments in late 2013 (September's Italian Open and October's Portugal Masters).

Steven Bowditch blitzed TPC Four Seasons for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-30=62 in today's opening round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and sits alone atop the leaderboard.

The Aussie is fresh off a disqualification at Colonial where it was never released what happened even though we assume it was due to him signing for an incorrect scorecard. Whatever the case, he got after it early and often at TPC Four Seasons today. Bowditch striped nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies. He opened with a 24-footer for birdie at the par-4 first hole and added notable conversions from 30'2", 29'3" and 18'4" at Nos. 4, 9 and 14. He signed his card ranked second in strokes gained: tee-to-green (4.110 at last check) and leading the field in strokes gained: putting (4.221). Today's aggregate equals his career low in 398 rounds on the PGA TOUR (final round; 2011 Sanderson Farms).

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.

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.

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.
May 27 - 11:49 AM

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.
