Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño alerted his followers on Twitter why he elected not to tee it up at this week's Shell Houston Open.

GFC wrote: "My top ten gets me into Houston next week, but I had to turn it down as I want to be fresh for The Masters." A short-term loss may be a long-term gain as he also retweeted the PGA TOUR's tweet about him becoming eligible for Special Temporary Membership. This would lead gamers to believe that he'll accept at some point. In an article at GolfByTourMiss.com, he discusses that his sights are to play in the U.S. more often. "The PGA Tour School is no longer an option for us and unfortunately the European Tour is struggling so I would like to make enough money to take out ‘Temporary Membership’ in the hope of securing my PGA card for next year," he said prior to a T3 at Bay Hill. "So that’s my goal to play here more in the States on a regular basis."

Scott Hend hoisted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to claim the clubhouse lead on 6-under 138 in the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof, two clear of Sebastian Gros after the morning wave completed their work.

The Aussie had given us a big clue that he was running into form, arriving in Germany off a run of form that read: MC-T14-T6. He needed to rediscover his mojo, however, given that he was lacking a European Tour top 20 since losing a play-off at Crans in September (a result he admits knocked his confidence, being a second such result in the same tournament in two years). On Friday he started from the tenth and did so with a bogey-5, but thereafter played superb golf to the turn, ticking the 12th and 17th, whilst making eagle-3 at the 519-yard par-5 15th. The front nine witnessed seven straight pars so he looked headed for a share of the lead, but he then circled the eighth and ninth to ease clear.

World No. 7 Rory McIlroy twirled a season-tying-low, 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, currently T3 and one adrift of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Jordan Spieth.

This is the 29-year-old's second appearance after T17 last year (67-73-70-64). He checks in off a missed cut at the U.S. Open, his third straight MC at the U.S. Open, and with three top 10s this season in 11 starts, highlighted by his come-from-behind win at Bay Hill, where he closed with 8-under 64. In total, this is the Ulsterman's third 64 this season (Memorial/R3). On 10 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, he walked off with bogey-5 at 18 (failed scramble), preceded by seven birdies at 1, 2, 4, 6 and 13-15, all from inside of 11 feet.

Defending champ and World No. 5 Jordan Spieth spun a season-low, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, good for a share of the clubhouse lead with Zach Johnson.

This is his 17th start of the season, entering off back-to-back missed cuts, and hasn't had a top 20 since solo 3rd at the Masters seven starts ago, where he closed with a previous-season-best 64. The 24-year-old found 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.478 strokes approaching and 2.003 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 15 (tee ball in the water), outflanked by six birdies at 3, 5, 11, 13, 14 and 16, adding a hole-out eagle-3 at 6 from a greenside bunker 31'5" away. Spieth's split included two conversions from between 12 and 21 feet, recording 1.533 putts per GIR and 1.439 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

World No. 28 Brian Harman fired a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, currently T4 and one back of clubhouse leader Zach Johnson.

This is the 31-year-old's eighth Travelers with two prior top 25s and one top 10, a solo 3rd in 2015 as 54-hole leader (66-65-65-69). This is his best lap at TPC River Highlands (in 27 rounds), previously 65 three times.

World No. 54 Zach Johnson, who arrived off a T12 at the U.S. Open, painted a 7-under-par 33-30=63 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, good for the clubhouse lead out of the morning wave. UPDATE: With R1 completed, Johnson co-leads with defending champ Jordan Spieth, his 10th 18-hole lead/co-lead in 378 events, previously 1-for-9 converting (2012 Crowne Plaza Invitational).

The 42-year-old ties his season low in 58 rounds (Sony Open/R1). At the Sony, he was a first-round co-leader, eventually finishing T14 (63-67-71-67). This is his 13th Travelers with five prior top 25s among nine cashes and two top 10s, including a best of T3 on debut in 2004.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, two-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 304 Matt Jones enjoyed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, currently T4 on the leaderboard and one short of morning-wave clubhouse-leader Peter Malnati. UPDATE: With R1 completed, Jones is T6, two back of co-leaders Zach Johnson and Jordan Spieth.

This is the ASU alum's 16th start of the season and 45th round, matching a season-best 65/R2 at the Byron Nelson three starts ago en route to a season-best T13. He's 3-for-7 at the Travelers with one top 25, a T13 in 2010 (65-67-68-70).

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 88 Beau Hossler smoothed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, currently T3 on the leaderboard and one short of early clubhouse leader Peter Malnati. UPDATE: With R1 completed, Hossler is T6, two back of co-leaders Zach Johnson and Jordan Spieth.

The first-time member though not a rookie striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.581 strokes off-the-tee and 0.871 around-the-green.

Sébastian Gros set the new clubhouse target playing early in the afternoon wave of the first round of the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof, his 4-under-par 32-36=68 leaving him alone at the top, one clear of Aaron Rai and Henric Sturehed on the live leaderboard. UPDATE: At the end of play Gros remained clear, but Jorge Campillo had joined Rai and Sturehed in T2.

But for a late bogey at the 16th the Frenchman might have been settling down for his dinner with a two shot advantage, but he'll remain very content with his first day's work in Germany. His front nine, especially, was electric as he ticked the first, third, eight and ninth. He added a fifth par breaker at 15, but was to make that error immediately afterwards. Currently 104th on the Race to Dubai he needs a good week having made just one top 20 (T12 Open de Espana) since the end of last July. He did hint at this form, however, when T2 at halfway in the BMW PGA Championship. He owns one previous first round lead, which was shared, after a 67 in the 2016 Nordea Masters. There are plenty to finish the round so he may be caught, but conditions are blustery.

Henric Sturehed's 3-under-par 33-36=69 saw him join Aaron Rai at the top of the live leaderboard as the morning wave completed their rounds on the opening day of the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof.

The Swede's first visit to the Jack Nicklaus design in Pulheim, Germany and he's quickly taken to it, although it was a wildly swinging day which left his scorecard all sorts of colours. He opened with red at the first and third, before taking a step backwards due to blue at the fourth. The response was swift: more red at five and eight. The first move of the back nine was in reverse, thanks to blue at 12, but an eagle-3 at the 13th earned a splash of yellow. A final par-breaker followed at the 15th, but he closed with bogeys at 16 and 18. Having opened the season with seven missed cuts, he's on track to make it four weekends on the run (discounting a withdrawal in the Rocco Forte Open). He and Rai lead by one from five players in the clubhouse on 2-under.

Aaron Rai crafted a 3-under-par 34-35=69 which set the pace in round one of the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof in Pulheim, Germany.

The Englishman's lap left him in a share of first with Sweden's Henric Sturehed as he took lunch on the opening day and most of his progress was made on the front nine. He made birdies at the third, seventh and ninth holes, with the latter two covering a bogey in-between at the eighth. On the way home he added eight pars and a third birdie-4 of the day at the 519-yard par-5 15th. On a solid run of 9-for-11 and 93rd on the Race to Dubai he is still looking for his first seasonal top five. Should he remain in a tie for the lead come the end of play it will replicate his 18-hole T1 in the Qatar Masters (he finished T19); he was also T3 in the Open de Espana after the first round (T12). He and Sturehed lead by one from five players in the clubhouse on 2-under.
