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.

Chris Wood will defend his BMW PGA Championship title over a newly renovated West Course at the Wentworth Club this week.

Two years ago the Bristol golfer made a hole-in-one at the 14th to earn himself a new car and then 12 months later he went one better, shooting a front nine 29 (equalling the tournament record) to earn a four-shot lead at the turn in the final round, just about enough for him to hold on and claim the biggest win of his career. It wasn’t the first time he had excelled on the West Course. In 2010 he had led going into the final round until a 77 upset the apple cart – he later admitted he was actually playing "too well" and couldn’t stop himself pin-seeking when it would have made more sense to golf sensibly. He was T4 in the recent China Open, when rounds of 68-65-68 finished off a week which started with a 72. A quarter final appearance in the GolfSixes followed, but there is probably little to take account of in that result.

World No. 7 Jordan Spieth slipped on the tartan plaid jacket after the 2016 DEAN & DELUCA Invitational and returns this week for another crack at Colonial Country Club.

Spieth eased into his win last year, posting rounds of 67-66 to position himself T3 at the midpoint. He blitzed the course over the weekend with a pair of 65s to beat the field by three strokes. His biggest asset was the flat stick, gaining 9.12 strokes putting on the week. Unfortunately, that club is letting Spieth down recently, losing 2.6 strokes putting over his last two starts (missed cuts at the Byron Nelson and THE PLAYERS), even making a putter change ahead of last week's event. With missed cuts in three of his last four starts, Spieth arrives way out of form, especially by his lofty standards. However, his track record at Colonial CC includes four top 15s in four attempts, meaning a bounce-back week could (and should) be in the cards.

Henrik Stenson has played in just one of the last six editions of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth but he'll return to contest this week's event on the revamped West Course.

The 11-time European Tour winner finished T7 on his last appearance in 2014 and also made the top 10 in 2007. This will be his first event on English soil since he landed the Open Championship and presumably he feels the new layout, which has seen five greens remodelled, a 25% reduction in the number of bunkers and predicted easier scoring, will make it a more appealing proposition after some mixed form there down the years. Stenson's last start in a regular European Tour event resulted in second spot at the Dubai Desert Classic but he recently endured a baffling run of four straight missed cuts on the PGA TOUR (Arnold Palmer Invitational, Houston Open, Masters, Zurich Classic). He restored some order with T16 at Sawgrass last time so will hope to build on that and show some more spark as he prepares for the defense of the claret jug at Royal Birkdale (northern England) this July.

Two-time world long-drive champion Jamie Sadlowski preps for his PGA TOUR debut after receiving an invitation to this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational.

Sadlowski is one of two golfers to receive a Champions' Choice invite into this week's event (Beau Hossler the other). This exemption is the result of past champions of the DEAN & DELUCA voting for who should crack the field. Sadlowski has a stellar track record on the long-drive circuit, including back-to-back titles in 2008 and 2009. The big hitter from Canada has drives recorded as long as 445 yards, so he should provide a unique plan of attack, compared to the rest of the field this week. The 28-year-old is trying to play his way through the mini tours, but this will be his first attempt in a PGA TOUR event.

World No. 133 Bud Cauley carved out an even-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 72-hole tally of 8-under 272, up one place into a four-way T5, four strokes back of a 2-man playoff involving Jason Day and eventual champ Billy Horschel.

This was the 27-year-old's third appearance, second cash and second straight top 5 (T4/2016). It's his fifth top 25 of the season in 17 starts, all five doubling as top 10s and three of those top 5s. The Floridian has now posted four consecutive top 10s, which is the longest current streak on TOUR. After opening in 67-67-68, he began T6 on 8-under, four shy of 54-hole leader James Hahn and mustered three (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 1.794 strokes off-the-tee. The Alabama product was 2-over thru 12 holes, outbalancing birdies at 7 and 11 with bogeys at 4, 5, 10 and 12, but played his final six in 2-under, circling 13 and 17.
May 21 - 8:27 PM

Past champ and World No. 4 Jason Day turned in a 2-under-par 34-34=68 after the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to match playing competitor Billy Horschel on 12-under 268, and then lost on the first hole of sudden death, the par-4 18th, 3-putting from 48'4" for bogey while Horschel won with a 2-putt par.

The 2012 winner was vying for an 11th TOUR title in his 201st career start but settles for a ninth career runner-up. It's his fourth top 25 at the Nelson in five tries, all four doubling as top 10s, and a second top 10 of the season in 10 starts (T5, AT&T Pro-Am). After opening in 68-69-63, the 29-year-old began T3 on 10-under, one back of Horschel and two shy of 54-hole leader James Hahn. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 3.603 SG: Tee-to-Green though -0.644 SG: Putting. The Aussie went out in 1-under, circling birdie-4 at No. 7, now tied with Hahn and Horschel. He came home in 1-under, outpacing a lone bogey-5 at 12 (failed scramble) with a 6-footer for birdie-3 at 10 and a pitch-in 3 at the par-4 15th from 78'3" away. Day's record in extra time drops to 1-1.

World No. 76 Billy Horschel, a pre-tourney 100/1 outright, erased a 1-shot deficit with a 1-under 35-34=69 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to match past champ and playing competitor Jason Day on 12-under 268, and then won with par on the first hole of sudden death, the par-4 18th.

This is the Florida alum's fourth TOUR title in 166 career starts (165 pro), first since the 2014 TOUR Championship 64 starts ago, where he was the 54-hole leader. The win comes in his third appearance, missing the cuts in 2011 and 2012. After kicking off in 68-65-66, the 30-year-old began in solo 2nd on 11-under, one back of 54-hole leader James Hahn, who completed the final threesome. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.981 strokes tee-to-green. The Floridian went out in even-par, exchanging birdies at 3 and 6 with bogeys at 5 (3-putt from 41'4") and 9, now sharing the top spot with both playing competitors. He came home in 1-under, outpacing bogeys at 12 and 13, his second and third 3-putt bogeys of the day, with birdies at 11 and 14 (from 59'3"), and a 2-putt birdie at the par-5 16th. In the playoff, Horschel won with a two-putt par from 17'2" while Day 3-jacked from 48'4" for bogey.
May 21 - 7:17 PM

First-round co-leader and 54-hole leader James Hahn backed up with a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 11-under 269, down two places to solo 3rd, one stroke shy of a 2-man playoff involving playing competitors Billy Horschel and Jason Day.

This was the Seoul, South Korea, native's fourth Nelson, fourth cash and second top 10, supplanting a previous-best T5 on debut in 2014. It's his fourth top 25 of the season in 17 starts and first top 10. After opening in 64-70-64, rounds 1 and 3 bogey-free, he began with a 1-shot lead over Horschel, two clear of Day. The World No. 83 landed 10 (of 14) fairways but just eight greens in regulation, posting 2.254 SG: Tee-to-Green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 14.320. He played his first half in birdie-less 1-over, squaring bogey-4 at 2, but still co-led with Horschel and Day at the break. The 35-year-old broke the ice with back-to-backs birdies at 10 and 11, now leading by one, but then squared three straight at 12-14, including a 3-putt at 14 from 46'10". He was two back coming to the last and nearly holed his second to the par 4, lipping out a would-be eagle from 122 yards away to improbably join the playoff, settling for birdie from 45 inches.

Alvaro Quiros experienced a torrid final day, carding a 2-over-par 33-40=73 to fall back from a five shot lead into a play-off, but he prevailed over Zander Lombard and claimed The Rocco Forte Open at Verdura GC on a 72-hole total of 14-under 270.

The exhausted winner took the honors at the second extra hole when Lombard three-putted for bogey. Earlier Quiros, who began the day with that five shot headstart, had extended it to seven after six holes thanks to birdies at 2, 4, 5 and 6. But he made bogey-5 at 8, failed to birdie the par-5 9th and added another bogey-5 at 10. Lombard was making ground and with four holes to play the Spaniard’s advantage was only two. Both players made bogey at 15 and 17, but crucially Quiros, who spent the last 12 holes missing fairways both right and left, made a double bogey-6 at 16 after finding a bush from the teebox. He got up and down in some style from a back bunker on 18 to force the play-off, escaping a plug and holing from 10’0", before taking the title on the 74th hole of the week. "A bit of a mess," he said afterwards. "It shouldn't really happen like that." With the win he regains the card he lost last year.

Due to thunderstorms in the area, Round 4 tee times at the AT&T Byron Nelson will now be in threesomes from 10-noon (CT) off of split tees. UPDATE: Times delayed until 10:30am - 12:30pm.

Final-round tee times were originally scheduled to be twosomes off a single tee, beginning at 7:01am, so we're looking at a 3-hour delay initially. Making his tourney debut, South Korea's Byeong Hun An will begin the final frame on 7-under 203 (68-66-69), five back of fellow Seoul native and 54-hole leader James Hahn. The first-time member though not a rookie outpaced three bogeys in R3 with four birdies, but struggled around-the-green, losing 0.955 strokes and dipping six places to T9. He's now scheduled in the fifth-to-last threesome off No. 1 tee at 11:20am.

World No. 416 Shawn Stefani was disqualified after a 4-over-par 37-37=74 in Round 3 of the AT&T Byron Nelson at TPC Four Seasons in Irving, Texas. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Media updated the situation, citing an incorrect scorecard as the reason for Stefani's early exit.

At press time, no information has been gleaned as to the reason for the DQ. The Lamar University alum had opened his fourth Nelson in even-par 71-69, T51 at halftime, and outbalanced a pair of birdie-4s with six bogeys on Day 3. At 4-over 214, he would've have settled in at T71 to begin the finale had he continued. This is the Texan's first career DQ in his 112th career TOUR start. If more information becomes available, we'll update the post. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Media updated the situation, citing an incorrect scorecard as the reason for Stefani's early exit.
