Latest Headlines

Louis Oosthuizen has been removed from the published field of this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

His owners feared that this would serve as today's headline. He withdrew prior to his final round of last week's Byron Nelson due to a neck injury. Oosthuizen had planned on teeing it up in four straight culminating with next week's Memorial, so we'll have to remain patient as he deals with his malady.

Scott Langley blistered The Old White TPC for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-32=62 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Langley is 144th in the FedExCup standings, but he's coming off a T25 at the Travelers, just his third top 25 of the season, so he arrived in West Virginia with some momentum. He piped 12 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation, converting on eight looks for birdie. Three of them traveled longer than 10 feet, the highlight dropping in from 19'1" at the par-4 second hole. At last check, he led the field in birdies and strokes gained: tee-to-green (4.302). His aggregate matches his career low first recorded in the opening round of the 2013 Sony Open in Hawaii, which was his debut round as a PGA TOUR rookie.

Victor Dubuisson delighted the locals by taking a share of the clubhouse lead with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the Alstom Open de France.

The Frenchman sank a 10-foot putt at his final hole, the par-5 9th, to match the target set by Bernd Wiesberger. Dubuisson was quiet early on, playing his first eight holes in 1-over due to a bogey-6 at 14. He made amends with a birdie at 18 and circled three more at 3, 5 and 7 to join the lead. This is another positive sign for the Ryder Cup star, who snapped a poor run of form with a top 20 in Germany last week.

Bernd Wiesberger crafted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to post the clubhouse target on day one of the Alstom Open de France.

After morning thunderstorms in Paris delayed the start of the tournament by two-and-a-half hours, Wiesberger opened with three pars before circling his first birdie of the day at 13. The Austrian reeled off five more pars before making his move with further birdies at 1, 3 and 5. His only blemish of the day would come on his penultimate hole, the par-3 8th. The two-time European Tour winner has contended strongly in this event for the last two years so it's no surprise to see him in the mix again. Today's round matches his low 18 at Le Golf National.

Although it came unexpectedly, Matt Dobyns collected his second victory at the PGA Professional National Championship today.

Eventual runner-up Ben Polland double-bogeyed the par-4 18th hole to finish one stroke adrift of Dobyns' 3-under-par 72-69-68-70=279 at Philadelphia Cricket Club. Dobyns' first title in this event in 2012. Polland doesn't come away empty-handed, though. The top 20 are exempt into the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits on Aug. 13-16. The other qualifiers are: 282--Alan Morin; Grant Sturgeon ... 283--Omar Uresti; Brian Cairns; Sean Dougherty; Brett Jones; Austin Peters ... 284--Bob Sowards; Charles Frost; Ryan Helminen; Ryan Kennedy; Johan Kok; Adam Rainaud ... 285--Jeff Olson; Brent Snyder; Daniel Venezio; Steven Young ... 286--Brian Gaffney (survived 5-for-1 playoff with a birdie on the first extra hole). For winning, Dobyns gets six somewhat restricted PGA TOUR exemptions in 2015-16.

Retief Goosen completed 36-hole Final Qualifying for The Open Championship in 5-under-par 67-72=137 at Woburn Golf Club's Marquess' Course, and then survived a 3-for-1 playoff for a berth into the tournament proper.

Goosen hasn't competed in the season's third major since 2012. In St. Andrews' last two turns in the rotation, he finished T5 (2005) and sixth (2010). Amateur Paul Dunne or Ireland paced this qualifier at 9-under 70-65=135. In his only previous start in a PGA TOUR event, he missed the cut at Royal Liverpool last year. European Tour veteran Robert Dinwiddie took runner-up honors today at 6-under 70-68=138. The 32-year-old from England will be making his debut in The Open. Notables that failed to qualify today include: 140--Robert Rock ... 141--Mikael Lundberg ... 143--Colin Montgomerie; Kenneth Ferrie ... 145--Richard Green ... 146--Nick O'Hern ... 147--Nick Dougherty ... 149--Thorbjørn Olesen.

For the third time this season, Garrett Osborn has successfully open qualified for a PGA TOUR event, this time for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The 30-year-old first turned the trick at the Sanderson Farms where he parlayed a T9 into a top-10 exemption at Mayakoba (MC). He then navigated the four-spotter for the St. Jude but also missed the cut in the tournament proper. Today at the Resort at Glade Springs' Cobb Course in Daniels, West Virginia, Osborn shot 5-under-par 33-33=66 with an eagle-3 and four birdies to cover one bogey. He and seven-time West Virginia Open champion David Bradshaw (33-33=66; six birdies, one bogey) survived a 3-for-2 playoff with Mike Van Sickle. Virginia Tech product Garland Green was the medalist with a 7-under 30-34=64. He buried eight birdies against one bogey to secure his PGA TOUR debut. Patrick Newcomb took runner-up honors with a bogey-free, 6-under 32-33=65 (six birdies). In his only previous TOUR start, Newcomb missed the cut at The McGladrey Classic last fall, also as an open qualifier. The field at The Old White TPC is now complete at 156.

Rob Oppenheim lit up Crestview Country Club for a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Air Capital Classic to pick up his first Web.com Tour victory at 13-under 267.

He surpassed the 54-hole leader, Andy Winings, by one stroke. Oppenheim circled four birdies and an eagle in the finale, landing 16 GIR in the process. The irons were the key to his breakthrough performance, as he was second in GIR for the tournament. This marked his 129th start on the Web.com Tour, and he now moves from 70th to 13th on the money list with this victory. Should he end the year inside the top 25 on the money list, he would earn a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card.

Charley Hoffman has finally qualified for The Open Championship.

Hoffman is eighth in the FedExCup standings through the Travelers Championship. The top five and ties, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 20 in FedExCup points tonight earned exemptions into the season's third major. He just missed qualifying when the Official World Golf Ranking was used following the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Robert Streb (12th), Kevin Kisner (14th) and Steven Bowditch (17th) also gained entry into the field of 156 at St. Andrews. All of the other 16 inside the top 20 were already exempt.

With birdie on the second playoff hole, Bubba Watson emerged with victory at the Travelers Championship.

The 2010 Travelers champion hung up a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round to post 16-under 264 and force sudden death with Paul Casey. After the duo traded pars on the par-4 18th to open the playoff, Watson won with birdie-3 on the second hole (also the 18th) as Casey was lying five. Watson, who led outright after 18 and 36 holes, began the day at 13-under (T2) and one back of the 54-hole lead. The 36-year-old circled birdies at Nos. 1 and 2 to move to 15-under early on and sole possession of the lead. He concluded his outward half with seven consecutive pars, registering just 11 putts over his first nine. After pars at Nos. 10-12 (to reach 10 straight), he broke the string at the par-5 13th, a hole that featured a 208-yard approach from the fairway bunker to 39'3" from where he connected for the eagle-3. Watson's victory is his eighth of his PGA TOUR career (223 starts). Coupled with his win at the WGC-HSBC Champions, he's now the fourth multiple winner on the 2014-15.

With a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in his final round of the Travelers Championship, Graham DeLaet posted 14-under 267, good for outright fourth place an exemption into The Open Championship.

We're at that time of the season when tournaments are also qualifiers for the season's third major. The top four, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 12 and ties at TPC River Highlands were awarded tee times at St. Andrews on July 16. DeLaet started the day just one shot off the 54-hole lead, so he was in pursuit of his first PGA TOUR title as well. Alas, he opened with a double bogey-6 at the first hole to set the tone for another also-ran performance. He rallied for four birdies before walking off with bogey at the par-4 18th. The good news is that he'll be making his third consecutive appearance in The Open Championship. Brian Harman (solo third at the Travelers), Carl Pettersson (solo fifth) and Luke Donald (T7) claimed the other berths. Donald's world ranking (68th) served as the tiebreaker with Bo Van Pelt (248th) and Mark Wilson (441st), both of whom also tied for seventh today.
