Graeme McDowell completed 36 holes of the 113th U.S. Open in 13-over-par 76-77=153 and will miss the cut.

G-Mac split 17 (of 28) fairways and hit 22 greens in regulation but he required 63 putts. He erased five birdies with four bogeys and seven doubles. This is the first time he's failed to cash in eight appearances in this major.

Tim Petrovic smoothed a bogey-free, 31-33=64 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, good for a share of the overnight lead with Michael Putnam.

Petrovic was the last man in the field when Benjamin Alvarado withdrew on Wednesday. The American has been limited to seven starts this season due to Past Champion status, but he proved today that he needs only one to change everything. After opening with a standard-issue par at the par-4 first, he strung together birdies at 2, 3 and 4, the last disappearing from 59'5". He added a birdie from 11'7" at the par-3 seventh and an eagle-3 at 12 where he knocked his second to just 39 inches. This is Petro's lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he closed out a T2 at the 2012 Frys.com Open with the same.

Michael Putnam spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Putnam is having another season like his rookie year of 2007, but he's going to retain fully exempt status this time. He's 99th in the FedExCup standings despite no top 10s and only three top 25s. That's what can happen when you cash in 19 starts. Today at Royal Montreal, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and went 4-for-4 in scrambling en route to six birdies. His longest measured just 12 feet at the par-4 second hole.

Jarrod Lyle authored one of the stories of the year in today's opening round of the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic, crafting a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-36=67.

It doesn't get much better than this. In his third start since his second bout with leukemia, Lyle went 2-for-2 in scrambling and circled four birdies at Nicklaus Golf Club at LionsGate in Overland Park, Kansas. All four of his birdies dropped in on his outward nine. He even sat atop the early leaderboard before coming to rest two strokes off the clubhouse lead. Lyle will get two more rehab starts before he's forced to return to the PGA TOUR when eligible on merit.

Blake Adams alerted his followers on Twitter today that he will have surgery to replace his hip this week.

Adams wrote, "Scheduled for total hip replacement surgery in the AM. Dr Matta (replaced Tom Watson's) is my surgeon. I will be back on Tour soon #painfree" Given the timing of the tweet, it's probable that surgery is on Wednesday, but that's just a detail. We'll also have to assume that it's his left hip that will be replaced. While he's only 38 years of age, it's been no secret for a while that this was going to occur at some point. He underwent major surgery on the same joint in early 2013. Adams returned to competition at the season-opening Frys.com Open and made eight starts. He cashed in five. He still has 16 starts remaining on a Major Medical Extension to earn $497,044 or 277.9 FedExCup points and retain status.

Jason Allred did it again in today's open qualifier for the RBC Canadian Open, posting 6-under-par 34-32=66 at St. Raphael Golf Club in Île Bizard, Quebec, good for medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

This is the fourth time this season that the non-member has four-spotted into a PGA TOUR event (Northern Trust, HP Byron Nelson, Travelers). With 236 FedExCup points and $508,227, he'd rank a respective 163rd and 134th among members, so Allred remains close to attaining fully exempt status for 2014-15. Today he buried an eagle (at the par-5 eighth hole) and six birdies to offset two bogeys. Ben Silverman spun a bogey-free, 5-under 34-33=67 with five birdies to share runner-up honors with Kevin Stinson, who also went bogey-free, 5-under 33-34=67 with five birdies. Robbie Greenwell was the third to finish T2 at 5-under 35-32=67 with seven birdies against two bogeys. All three Canadians will be making their PGA TOUR debut. The field at Royal Montreal Golf Club is now complete at 156.

Steve Wheatcroft crafted a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open and survived a playoff against Steven Alker with a birdie on the first playoff hole for his second Web.com Tour win.

Wheatcroft circled six birdies and an eagle and squared two bogeys on his final navigation of Hillcrest CC. For the tournament, he bagged 27 birdies which was tops for the week and a big reason why he reached 24-under 260. He also ranked first in putting average, with a 1.566 clip. He entered the week 89th on the Web.com Tour money list, but jumps to 11th and virtually guarantees his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card with this victory.

Gary Woodland is one of 10 golfers to earn an exemption into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational on July 31-Aug. 3.

The top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking at the conclusion of this weekend's action gained entry into the final of four WGCs on the season. (The Web.com Tour's Albertsons Boise Open scheduled to finish later today will not have an impact.) Woodland is 47th in the updated OWGR to secure his first start at Firestone since his debut in 2011. He shared 39th place at Royal Liverpool today. The following nine inside the top 50 weren't previously exempt, but will now join Woodland in Akron: Jim Furyk (10th), Rickie Fowler (18th), Ian Poulter (28th), Jamie Donaldson (32nd), Kevin Na (37th), Francesco Molinari (42nd), Jonas Blixt (45th), Joost Luiten (46th) and Harris English (48th). Everyone in next week's top 50 of the OWGR will also gain entry.

Rickie Fowler turned in a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Open Championship but finished in a tie for second, two strokes behind Rory McIlroy.

Fowler played in the final pairing with the eventual winner, and did everything he could to chase the Ulsterman down. The American picked up an early birdie at the par-4 second hole, and then added birdies at the par-5 10th, par-3 15th, par-5 16th and par-5 18th to finish at 15-under 273. He's turning into quite the magician at the majors, sharing second at the U.S. Open last month and cracking the top five at the Masters back in April. This will also go a long way towards locking up a spot on Tom Watson's Ryder Cup team, as he ranked seventh before the week began and this was a double-point event. If any lesson has been learned, it is not to count out Fowler at Valhalla in the PGA Championship next month.

Sergio Garcia crafted a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of The Open Championship to share second with Rickie Fowler at 15-under 273.

While Garcia has suffered his share of heartache in the majors over the years, his lap around Royal Liverpool on Sunday was anything but a choke job. He circled five birdies and an eagle, with his only bogey coming at the par-3 13th when he tried to get a little too cute when taking on a bunker shot. The seven-shot deficit he faced when play began was just too much to overcome, as Rory McIlroy was able to claim his third major championship with a pedestrian 71 in the final round. The Spaniard can hold his head high knowing he gave it his best in the finale.
Jul 20 - 1:33 PM

Rory McIlroy posted a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The 143rd Open Championship to claim his first Claret Jug at 17-under 271.

McIlroy is the seventh player to go wire-to-wire without ever sharing the overnight lead in this event. His final navigation of Royal Liverpool was a modest one compared to many of the low rounds on Sunday. He circled four birdies and gave back a trio of bogeys, but it was good enough to place him two strokes clear of Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler. This is the Ulsterman's first win in a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event since the 2012 BMW Championship at Crooked Stick. With it, he is expected to move to second in the Official World Golf Ranking. It's hard to imagine that the hype leading up to the 2015 Masters will be anything short of a fever pitch as he attempts to close out the career Grand Slam.
Jul 20 - 1:27 PM

Jim Furyk lit up Royal Liverpool for a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of The Open Championship to secure a fourth-place finish and a return trip to the Masters.

Furyk picked up an eagle on the par-5 fifth, nearly jarring it for an albatross, and then added five birdies on the back nine at Hoylake. His 13-under 275 was good for the clubhouse lead at the time, but he finished four strokes adrift of champion Rory McIlroy. The top four and ties at Royal Liverpool earned exemptions into the 2015 Masters. The others are McIlroy (winner), Rickie Fowler (T2) and Sergio Garcia (T2). This could prove to be a critical week for Furyk's Ryder Cup chances as he entered the week sixth in the standings with double points being awarded for majors.
