Troy Kelly learned recently that he has a torn meniscus in his right knee, which is likely to prevent him from competing again during the 2013 season.

Kelly is fully exempt through this season, but he didn't play in either of the last two tournaments, thus raising a flag on a guy with a 3-for-10 slate and no top 60s. Sure enough, the Kitsap Sun interviewed the 34-year-old, who added that the ACL isn't 100 percent either. "It’s kind of like the hip," said Kelly, who had surgery on his left hip in 2010. "It went from being kinda OK to not good in a hurry. ... What I’m really having a hard time with is just walking the golf course. It’s like dragging my right leg around again and I told myself I wasn’t going to hurt walking again." He hasn't ruled out surgery, but it's not planned just yet. At this point, all remaining owners are advised to let him go. When he returns, whether it's in the beginning of the 2013-14 season this fall or during the 2014 calendar year, he'll be armed with a Major Medical Extension, albeit with a hefty monetary goal.

Webb Simpson styled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, placing him at T2 just one stroke off the leader Bryce Molder.

Simpson started on the back nine and splashed in four putts from outside five feet before making the turn at 3-under. That wouldn't be notable for most golfers, but the Wake Forest product entered the week ranked 184th in strokes gained putting as he continues to make the conversion to a non-anchored putting stroke. The flat stick really picked up steam on his inward nine, firing in a 21'8" birdie on the par-4 second and then a 19'4" birdie bomb on the par-4 fifth hole. Believers in the infamous nappy factor will place all the credit on Simpson's wife having their fourth child just two weeks ago. Regardless if that's true or not, Simpson is now a serious threat to contend this week, as long as the putter can remain relatively warm. He arrived with an 0-for-2 record at Colonial Country Club but this is his first visit since 2010. This also matches his low round of the season (Sony Open/R3; CareerBuilder/R2).

Bill Haas survived a cold putter en route to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the first round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, placing him three strokes off the early pace set by Bryce Molder.

Haas split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, both more than 10 percent over the field average. Despite the great ball-striking, he couldn't convert on the greens, losing 2.336 strokes with the flat stick. His longest converted putt was a six-footer to save par at the par-4 fifth hole. Luckily, Haas didn't even need a putter on the par-3 eighth hole as he slam-dunked a 50'1" greenside bunker shot for birdie. The Wake Forest product owns top 25s in three of his last four starts here at Colonial Country Club, but he really needs to figure out the greens if he wants to remain in contention as the week progresses.

Afternoon starter Joost Luiten made it a three-way tie atop the first-round leaderboard at the BMW PGA Championship after shooting a 7-under-par 31-34=65.

The Dutchman matched the clubhouse target set by Scott Hend and YE Yang after trading nine birdies against two bogeys in his opening lap of Wentworth's West Course. The trio are a shot ahead of Masters champion Danny Willett. Luiten wiped out a bogey at the first with a birdie-2 at No. 2 and made further gains at 4, 6, 7 and 8 to turn in 31. He reeled off three more par breakers at 12, 13 and 15 to join the lead before swallowing a bogey at 16. But Luiten, who has eight top 15s from 11 starts this season, circled red at 18 to join Hend and Yang. His two dropped shots came after finding sand while he split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and took just 25 swishes of the short-stick.

Bryce Molder fired out of the gates with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 29-35=64 in the opening round of this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

Molder kicked off his week on the back nine and landed seven of nine greens en route to nine straight pars. His longest putt made on the back nine was a 3'10" roll. The fun began on the inward nine, as he figured out the greens and started to hole every putt. Molder's first putt made from outside four feet came at the par-4 sixth in the form of an 11'3" birdie and he proceeded to close out his round with three more splashes from outside 10 feet, two of them from outside 19 feet. Molder entered the week with under-par rounds in nine of his last 11 rounds, and he continued that great play today as he split 10 (of 14) fairways and kept a clean card.

YE Yang recovered from an opening bogey to paint a 7-under-par 32-33=65 on day one of the BMW PGA Championship in England and shares the lead with Scott Hend and Joost Luiten.

Yang has two missed cuts and a T54 from the only three events he's played since January but he was on the money again today. After dropping a shot at No. 1 and following it with two pars, the Korean birdied eight of the West Course's final 15 holes. His set included gains at all four par 5s (4, 12, 17 and 18) while he also picked up shots at 5, 6, 8 and 13. The 2009 PGA Championship winner had previously opened with 68 in two of his three appearances in this event so has a habit of starting fast at Wentworth. He faded both times but did manage T22 last year. Yang made the most of his good play today with 5-for-6 scrambling stats and needed just 24 putts. He split 10 (of 14) fairways. "I'm happy today," says the Korean. "Everything was good, driving, second shots, putting. I watched this tournament a bit growing up and saw it was sometimes rainy, windy, it's difficult, so difficult, but today was perfect weather."

Scott Hend torched the West Course at Wentworth for a 7-under-par 31-34=65 on Thursday, good enough for tied first spot after day one of the BMW PGA Championship.

The Aussie's collection of eight birdies included three '2's while he responded from his only dropped shot of the day with another at the 16th. Hend missed the cut in Ireland last week but had a run of 12-6-4 prior to that and also won the True Thailand Classic in March. This is just his second start at Wentworth and his opening 65 today was 14 shots better than his last lap which naturally led to a missed cut 12 months ago. The 43-year-old started fast with birdies at four of the first seven holes and kicked on again with further gains at 10, 12 and 13. A bogey at the long par-4 15th halted his charge but a birdie-par-par finish secured the lead. Some loose driving (he was just 4-for-14 in fairways hit) didn't hurt him today as he was still able to hit 15 greens in regulation. He shares the lead with YE Yang and Joost Luiten.

Prior to the start of the event, Brian Stuard has backed out of this week's DEAN & DELUCA Inviational, citing a nerve issue in his back. Tim Wilkinson will take his place in the field.

The Fort Worth, Texas, resident has to feel bummed about this pre-tournament WD, considering he was gearing up for a home game. After winning the 54-hole weather shortened Zurich Classic just four weeks ago, Stuard can now afford to take a week off. Taking his place in the field is Tim Wilkinson who arrives with top 30s in four of his last five starts, including a T4 at last week's Byron Nelson. The Kiwi finished T51 in his 2014 debut at Colonial Country Club, and this will be his first trip since.

Chris Kirk makes his way back to Fort Worth, Texas, in anticipation of his title defense at this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

The Georgia Bulldog signed for rounds of 68-69-65-66 to finish the last year's edition atop the leaderboard at 12-under 268. Kirk is no stranger to success at Colonial Country Club, entering last year with a 5-for-5 record that included a trio of top 20s. Throw last year's win onto that and it becomes a very impressive course resume. More recently, Kirk ended a run of great form when he withdrew during the second round of THE PLAYERS. Gamers should not worry about the WD since it was a case of Kirk getting stranded due to weather and not wanting to return on Saturday just to finish up one hole as his missed-cut fate was already sealed. Prior to that, Kirk had rattled off three straight top 25s, putting any signs of his wrist injury in the rear-view mirror. The four-time PGA TOUR winner has defending all three of his previous titles with top 30s.

Richy Werenski compiled a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the BMW Charity Pro-Am to earn his first Web.com Tour victory at 21-under 265.

The Georgia Tech product circled six birdies and tapped in 12 pars on his lap around Thornblade Club in the finale, splitting 10 of 13 fairways and landing 14 GIR. He was already twice a runner-up on the Web.com Tour entering the week and ranked seventh on the money list. With this victory, he moves to second on the money list and essentially locks up his 2016-17 PGA TOUR card.

Overnight leader Brooks Koepka backed up to a 1-over-par 34-37=71 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 15-under 265, and then lost on the first playoff hole to Sergio Garcia, who made par, while Koepka stumbled to a double bogey-6.

The 26-year-old began the finale with a two-shot lead over playing competitor Jordan Spieth and three clear of Garcia. He landed just four (of 14) fairways and for a second straight round, hit only nine greens in regulation. The Floridian missed his first three greens and bogeyed the third on a failed scramble before righting the ship with birdies on holes 7 and 9 to turn 1-under and 17-under total. At that point, he was three in front of four players, including Garcia. Koepka came home in birdie-less 2-over, squaring back-to-backs on 14 and 15 (failed scrambles) and missed a 15'11" birdie at the last to win in regulation. He was chasing his second TOUR title in his 55th career start but settles for his first runner-up, and drops to 0-for-1 when the 54-hole leader and 0-1 in playoffs.

With a par on the first playoff hole, Sergio Garcia emerged the victor at the AT&T Byron Nelson for a second time in his 12th appearance (2004 playoff), and claimed his ninth PGA TOUR title in his 301st career start.

The Spaniard was first to post 15-under 265 with rounds of 63-66-68-68. Overnight leader Brooks Koepka would match two groups later, after missing a mid-range chance at the last to win in regulation. The duo headed back to the par-4 18th for sudden death and Koepka ended the drama nearly immediately, putting his driver off the tee into the water and slopping his way to a double bogey-6. Garcia downgraded to 3-wood and won with a routine two-putt par. This was the 36-year-old's first win on TOUR since the 2012 Wyndham Championship (45 months ago) and came in come-from-behind fashion, beginning the finale three shy of Koepka.
