Kyle Stanley found himself in contention for the first time since his 2012 win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and responded with a bogey-free final-round 5-under-par 35-32=67 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Stanley's 17-under 271 was good for third place, and marks the first time he's picked up a top 15 since the aforementioned WMPO win. It's been a long time coming for a guy that was expected to be a contender almost any time he teed it up, and playing his final eight holes at TPC Louisiana in 4-under could be the spark he needs to get his year going. Though he's battled the putter all season, he managed to convert a 17'9" attempt on the par-3 14th when it mattered. He now heads to Quail Hollow with confidence high on a course where his length and ball-striking prowess could be a huge advantage.

Ted Potter Jr. returned to action with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 during the first round of the United Leasing & Finance Championship. It was his first competitive round since the summer of 2014.

The lefty suffered an ankle injury during the week of the 2014 RBC Canadian Open. It happened when he slipped on a curb at his hotel and broke his right ankle. Fast forward 21 months and two surgeries, Potter Jr. is starting to make some rehab starts on the Web.com Tour. That is one of the perks of a major medical extension as you are allowed five "minor league" starts to get the game back in form. Potter Jr. will have two starts on the PGA TOUR to earn 127 FedExCup points (or $326,004) and gain conditional status. If not, he will need to play his way through the Web.com Tour playoffs to get his PGA TOUR card back. His opening round, 3-under is just four strokes off the early pace set by Bhavik Patel and just one stroke behind the trio of golfers currently sharing second place. Not too shabby for a golfer that's been away from the TOUR for nearly two years.

Due to darkness the first round of the Zurich Class has been suspended and will resume bright and early on Friday morning.

With a four hour and fifty minute weather delay, there was never a chance of finishing this round before sunset. The p.m. wave of golfers will have a long day ahead of them as they will get out on the course early and head right back out there for round two once they finish. Meanwhile Byeong-Hun An was in the morning wave and did manage to finish his round at 4-under-par 34-34=68 to sit four strokes off the pace set by Brian Stuard. The World No. 31 golfer is making his tournament debut. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation. He may be lesser known stateside but his worldwide cachet makes him a serious threat to remain in contention as the week progresses.

Retief Goosen thrashed TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 30-35=65 during the first round of this week's Zurich Classic to sit just one stroke off the current leader Brian Stuard.

The South African came out guns blazing this week, rattling off six birdies on his outward nine. That all started with birdie rolls of 18'8" and 20' on the par-4 first and par-5 second holes, respectively. Overall he just needed four putts made from outside five feet today. Goosen's tee-to-green game was on point as well, striping nine (of 14) fairways in route toward 15 greens in regulation. He arrived with top 30s in each of his last three Zurich starts and now he's on his way to a fourth straight.

Brian Stuard ransacked TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64 during the first round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

It was all putting, all the time, today for Stuard. He splashed home par-saving rolls from 32'5" (par-4 12th) and 19'11" (par-3 17th), but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Stuard also fired in seven birdie putts from outside seven feet, four coming from 11 feet or longer. He walked off the course having gained 6.446 strokes with the flat stick, the third highest single-round putting performance for any golfer on TOUR this season. There is no way Stuard can maintain this pace on the putting surface but luckily this round gives him a nice cushion as he moves toward a much needed big finish.

Carl Pettersson played eight holes at 5-over before withdrawing from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans due to a wrist injury.

The Swede found one (of seven) fairways one his way toward a pair of bogeys, two double bogeys, and a lone birdie. As you might guess, the birdie came on the one hole where he striped a fairway. He found water off the tee on his lone par 3 played, leading to a double bogey. This goes in the books as his third mid-tournament WD of the season. Pettersson is now 4-for-14 on the season and continues to struggle following the anchored-putter ban.

Hennie Otto blitzed his final nine holes to set a target of 9-under-par 33-30=63 at the Volvo China Open; by the end of play it was a figure no-one had matched and left him holding a 2 shot advantage over second placed Bernd Wiesberger, with four players T3 a shot further back.

The South African started from the tenth tee and played the back nine well, ticking birdies at 11, 15 and 17. But upon making the turn he set fire to the Topwin Golf & CC layout. He made red at 2, 3, 5 and 7 before adding icing on the cake with an eagle-3 on the 558-yard par-five 8th. His stats were naturally impressive: he hit 12 of 14 fairways, found 15 greens in regulation, saved par all 3 times he needed to, and required a mere 24 putts. The 63 gives him a fourth sole R1 lead on the European Tour, but his first since the 2003 British Open. This form is a surprise: he's made the cut just once in his last 7 European Tour starts.

Zach Wright will get his first taste of PGA TOUR action as he make an appearance at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The senior at LSU was recently named to the 2016 Palmer Cup team, where he'll face off against Team Europe in the Ryder Cup style event later this summer. Wright posted impressive results during his senior season to move up to 39th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking and 11th in the Golfweek/Sagarin rankings. Wright made the move by taking top individual honors at events such as The Prestige at PGA West and the Valspar Collegiate. In on a sponsor's invite this week, gamers should tread lightly in fantasy formats but keep an eye on Wright because he could be making his way to the PGA TOUR sooner rather than later.

For the second straight week Colt Knost pulled his name out of the field prior to the start of the event, this time it's the Zurich Classic of New Orleans that he chooses not to play.

The Dallas resident backed out of last week's Valero Texas Open on Tuesday afternoon and does so again today. There is no official reason cited for the pre-tournament WDs but Knost responded to a fan last week on Twitter by saying, "hope to be back next week." Obviously that hope did not come to fruition but it also shows this shouldn't be a long-term absence. Knost ranks 78th in the FedExCup standings after a 13-for-14 start to the season, so he can afford to take a few weeks off if he has a nagging injury or personal matter to attend to.

Marc Turnesa torched LaTour Golf Club to the tune of an 8-under-par 30-34=64 to lead the four-pack of qualifiers into this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans. Joining him will be Dalton Ward (-7), Matt Mabrey (-7), and Jordan Payne (-7).

Turnesa took it lowest today on LaTour's 7,142 yard layout, but Mabrey was the lone qualifier to author a bogey-free round today. Turnesa is also the most seasoned of the four as he makes his 110th PGA TOUR start, including a win at the 2008 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. He will be making his fifth start of the season, with a 1-for-4 record thus far, including a missed cut at last week's Valero Texas Open. Ward will be making his second career PGA TOUR start. The Memphis alum Jordan Payne will also be making his second PGA TOUR appearance (MC at 2010 Viking Classic). Sticking with the theme, Tulsa product Matt Mabrey has a lone PGA TOUR start which came in the form of a missed cut at the 2015 U.S. Open.

LSU alum Ben Taylor will return to his old stomping grounds for a start at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

The Englishman who played for the European side of the 2013 Palmer Cup will be making his first PGA TOUR start on American soil. His lone start to date was a missed cut at the 2015 Open Championship played at St. Andrews Golf Club. Taylor joined LSU prior to his junior year and was a member of squad that secured SEC and NCAA team championships during his senior season, so he knows how to win. He recently announced he will be playing on the Mackenzie Tour in 2016, just north of the border. A strong finish this week would provide a nice confidence booster as he embarks on the journey of professional golf.

Wesley Bryan cruised to a four-stroke victory at the El Bosque Mexico Championship with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round to end the week at 19-under 269.

This is Bryan's second win in 2016, making him the first true lock for a 2016-17 PGA TOUR card via the 2016 Web.com Tour. He circled seven birdies and squared two bogeys on his trot around El Bosque CC, easily passing 54-hole leader Brad Fritsch in the process. Should the University of South Carolina product earn a third title, he would be immediately promoted to the PGA TOUR for the remainder of the 2015-16 season.
