With a 6-under-par 32-34=66 at The Lakes at Castle Hills in Lewisville, Tex., Stephen Gangluff medaled at today's open qualifier for the HP Byron Nelson Championship.

Gangluff buried an eagle and five birdies to offset one bogey to secure his first start on the PGA TOUR since losing his card at the end of the 2012 season. Zack Fischer, Jason Schultz and Bobby Massa shared runner-up honors, all signing for a 5-under 33-34=67 with six birdies and one bogey. It's the third time Fischer has four-spotted this season; he missed the cut in his previous two starts (Valero Texas Open; Zurich Classic of New Orleans). Schultz had status on TOUR in 2006 and 2007 but made just one start since (T63, 2010 Byron Nelson). And in his only career TOUR-sanctioned start, Massa missed the cut at the WNB Golf Classic on the Web.com Tour a month ago. The 25-year-old University of Texas-Arlington product is a native of Irving. The field for the HPBNC is now complete at 156.

World No. 6 Rickie Fowler, a pre-tourney 18/1 outright, contests his sixth Fort Worth Invitational, first since a missed cut in 2014, and heads out in Round 1 at 7:55 am CT with Jon Rahm and Bryson DeChambeau.

The Oklahoma State product played the event five straight years between 2010-14 but hasn't returned since the MC (by 14 shots) after rounds of 80-75. Overall, he's 4-for-5 with two top 25s and one top 10, a T5 in 2012, with a scoring average on the par-70 layout of 69.89. The 29-year-old is 8-for-11 on the season with six top 25s and three top 10s, all top 4s, highlighed by a pair of runner-up finishes at the OHL and the Masters. He checks in off a MC (by two) at THE PLAYERS, his second MC in his last three appearances after a P1 in 2015. Fowler's most recent (of four) TOUR titles is the 2017 Honda, 16 months, 1 week and 29 starts ago. He's led/co-led three times this season after any round, including 36-hole co-leader at the OHL, and 36-hole co-leader and 54-hole leader at the Phoenix Open. Fowler is 0-for-8 when leading/co-leading after 36 holes and 1-for-6 from the three-quarter pole.

Rory McIlroy has the curious record of a win and three missed cuts in his last four starts in the European Tour's flagship event, the BMW PGA Championship; he'll look to find the winning way at Wentworth again this week.

This is the Northern Irishman's first appearance in the event since he missed the cut when defending in 2015. In the build-up last month he described his relationship with Wentworth as "weird" but McIlroy made more positive noises after a practice round when he saw the course for the first time since last year's revamp. "I like the golf course. I think they have made some great changes. It's definitely in the best shape that I've ever seen it in before," he noted in his press conference. It's a tricky call on McIlroy for gamers this week. His course form couldn't be more extreme while he missed the cut at Sawgrass last time after a top five at Augusta National two starts earlier. He was runner-up at the British Masters in October, 2017 on his last start on English soil.

Jon Rahm flirted with the winner's circle during his 2017 debut at the Fort Worth Invitational and he returns this week for another crack at Colonial Country Club.

Rahm bookended his Colonial debut with 4-under 66s with rounds of 69-70 in between. That was plenty good for a debut, but fell one shy of the eventual winner, Kevin Kisner. The big-hitting Spaniard doesn't seem like an ideal fit on paper since Colonial doesn't offer a lot of reward for hitting drives over 300 yards. However, Rahm compared the test to some of his favorite courses back home. "You have to hit a lot of irons off the tee in Valderrama and it’s precision golf. You have to keep it in the fairway and hit those tiny greens." While that's what the course calls off, Rahm is on the record saying that he will be pulling driver on nearly every hole here. At 12/1, Rahm only sits behind Jordan Spieth in the betting markets and he'll remain a popular pick across all fantasy formats. Rahm has just one top 10 over his last eight starts (PGA TOUR) which is a bit below his lofty standards.

Kevin Kisner connected on his second PGA TOUR victory during last year's Fort Worth Invitational and he returns this week for another crack at Colonial Country Club.

The Georgia Bulldog was positioned at T7-T1-T4 during last year's event before firing a closing 4-under 66 to earn top honors, beating out three others that finished at 9-under 271. Kisner gained a remarkable 4.13 strokes around-the-green over the course of the week including 3.43 strokes in the third round alone, buoyed by a pair of hole outs. It seemed to be a different area of the game carrying him each day as he gained 4.19 strokes putting in R1 and 2.84 strokes on approach in R2. He's a natural fit for this classic design and he left breadcrumbs before his win (T5 in 2015 and T10 in 2016). The only downside is that Kisner arrives in poor form. Before his win last year, Kisner averaged 3 strokes gained tee-to-green in his five lead-up starts. This year he is averaging -1.2 strokes gained tee-to-green, over his last five starts. This looks like a classic case of course history versus form. The poor form makes him a risky option but the course history makes him a high-upside play.

Alex Noren will defend his BMW PGA Championship on the West Course at Wentworth in Virginia Water, England this week.

The brilliant 62 the Swede blasted in last year's final round not only blew the field away (he was T21 and seven swings back after 54 holes) it also smashed his previous best score on the West Course by five. Nor had he played only a few rounds; he'd made 36 circuits before then. He's a consistent 8-for-11 on the track and last year was the third in a row he has featured in the top ten at some point during the week. He makes his European Tour debut this season (WGC and majors excepted) having impressed on the PGA. In fact this calendar year he boasts seven finishes of T21 or better and shot 66-69-77-66 last time out in THE PLAYERS to bounce back from missed cuts in the Masters and Wells Fargo Championship.

World No. 43 Charl Schwartzel has removed his name from the field at this week's Fort Worth Invitational. First alternate David Hearn will take his spot in the field.

Schwartzel has recorded back-to-back top 10s as well as a solo 3rd in the start before that when he was paired with Louis Oosthuizen at the team event. Something clicked for Schwartzel during that Zurich Classic team event as he arrived that week with nothing better than T28 on the season (10 starts). Given his recent run of good play, gamers shouldn't be too concerned about a pre-tournament WD but we will update if any injury news pops up. The South African's recent hot streak has moved him up to 61st in the FedExCup race.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 168 Keith Mitchell hung up a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to finish up on 19-under 265, up four spots to T3, four adrift of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65. UPDATE: Mitchell jumps 34 places to 134th in OWGR and 22 spots to 57th in the FedExCup standings, both career highs

The 63 is the Georgia alum's career low in 63 rounds and rode it to his second career top-3 finish, second this season in 18 starts (2nd, Corales). For the week, he tallied one eagle and 20 birdies against three bogeys and ranked No. 1 in SG: Off-the-Tee (4.831). After opening with 65-68-69, the 26-year-old began T7, six back. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he landed 13 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, gaining 0.940 strokes off-the-tee and 2.555 on approach. The Tennessee native circled six birdies at holes 1, 4, 5, 8, 15 and 16, four from between 10 and 24 feet, adding eagle-3 at 7 from 25'0". He recorded 1.647 putts per GIR and 1.661 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

World No. 160 J.J. Spaun twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-31=63 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 19-under 265, up four spots to T3, four shy of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65.

This is the SDSU alum's second top-3 finish in 47 events, second this season in 16 starts, joining a solo 2nd at the RSM back in November. For the week, he totaled 25 birdies versus six bogeys and ranked 2nd in driving accuracy at 92.86 percent (52/56). After opening with 64-69-69, the Californian began T7, six back. Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, he found 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.002 strokes on approach and 3.128 tee-to-green. Spaun carded eight birdies at holes 1, 6, 8, 9, 10, 12, 14 and 18, four from between 11 and 53 feet, adding a pitch-in birdie at 10 from 38'2" away. He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 2.125 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 36 Branden Grace fired a 9-under-par 31-31=62 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to conclude on 19-under 265, up eight spots to a season-best T3, four short of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65.

The 30-year-old (today, May, 20th) bagged the low round of the day and matches his career low (in 298 rounds), a major-championship-record 62 in R3 at last year's Open at Royal Birkdale (finished T6). He improves to 11-for-11 on the season with six top 25s and two top 10s, bettering a T8 at the Valspar. After opening in 66-68-69, the South African began T11, seven back. Playing out of the sixth-to-last threesome, he smothered a lone bogey-5 at 13 with eight birdies and a hole eagle-3 at 14 from a greenside bunker 66'7" away. He posted 6.253 SG: Total, including 3.710 around-the-green and a tidy 1.308 putts per GIR. For the week, the Florida resident tallied two eagles and 24 birdies versus seven bogeys and one double. He ranked No. 1 in SG: Around-the-Green (6.536) and putts per GIR (1.614).

Overnight co-leader and World No. 16 Marc Leishman concocted a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, dipping one place to solo 2nd on 20-under 264, three in arrears of playing competitor and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65, and dropping to 1-for-3 as 54-hole leader/co-leader.

After kicking off in career-low 61, 66-69, the Aussie led outright after Rounds 1 and 2 and co-led with TOUR rookie Wise after R3. Playing out of the final threesome, he hit 13 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing strokes on approach and around-the-green and ekeing out a 0.085 on-the-green, still finishing No. 1 in SG: Putting with a cumulative 8.902. The 34-year-old squared three bogeys at holes 2 (3-putt from 34'5"), 10 and 15, outpaced by four birdies at 7, 8, 12 (from 14'0") and 16, adding eagle-2 from 12'8" at the drivable fifth. For the week, he totaled three eagles and 19 birdies against five bogeys. Leishman was chasing his fourth TOUR title in 238 events, first since the 2017 BMW Championship, but settles for his sixth runner-up, second this season in 14 starts (P2, CJ CUP).

Making his tournament debut, overnight co-leader and PGA TOUR rookie Aaron Wise tossed up a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to reach 23-under 261, good for a three-shot win over playing competitor Marc Leishman and his first PGA TOUR title in 26 events. UPDATE: Wise jumps 33 places to 66th in OWGR and 38 spots to 18th in the FedExCup standings, both career highs.

The 21-year-old, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, wins in his 18th start of the season and his first time as a 54-hole leader/co-leader. He hit all 14 fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, gaining 2.703 strokes tee-to-green. The South African-born American went out in 5-under, building a two-shot lead at the break, and crossed the finish line with a sixth (and final) birdie at 10 and eight straight pars. For the week, he posted rounds of 65-63-68-65 and tallied one eagle and 25 birdies against four bogeys and ranked No. 1 in SG: Approach (5.991). With the win, the World No. 99 earns a two-year exemption on TOUR and a host of goodies, including an invite to his first Masters in 2019.
