Peter Hedblom shot 3-over-par 71-74=145 at Local Final Qualifying at North Berwick in Scotland, finishing eight strokes outside the playoff for the final two berths into The Open Championship.

Hedblom had open qualified for the U.S. Open and placed T65 at Merion. He's competed in eight Open Championships since 1990, including a T7 at Royal Lytham & St. Annes in 1996. Jimmy Mullen carded a pair of 3-under 68s today to take medalist honors. The 475th-ranked amateur in the world erased one bogey with four birdies in each round. George Murray (5-under 73-64=137) and Gareth Wright (5-under 69-68=137) outlasted David Higgins (5-under 70-67=137) in a playoff because Higgins was assessed a two-stroke penalty for having 15 clubs in his bag. He added on after regulation thinking his day was done, and then forgot about it. Murray's nightcap ended with an eagle-2 at the 18th hole.

Justin Rose has been removed from the published field of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

While unconfirmed, it's likely that Rose is taking the path of fellow likely Ryder Cupper Sergio Garcia, who's sitting this week out to recharge his batteries. Rose shared 30th place at The Barclays and fell two spots to 20th in the FedExCup standings.

Jason Dufner has been removed from the published field of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

That he appeared in the field in the first place was news. After falling 17 spots to 74th in the FedExCup standings, there's little reason to risk aggravating his injury (two bulging discs in his neck) for what might be only one week of action.

Tiger Woods announced on his website today that he has fired swing coach Sean Foley.

The statement in its entirety: "I'd like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship. Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him. With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event at Isleworth in Orlando, this is the right time to end our professional relationship. Presently, I do not have a coach, and there is no timetable for hiring one." Foley responded as follows: "My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far, and I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together. It was a lifelong ambition of mine to teach the best player of all time in our sport. I am both grateful for the things we had the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as the enduring friendship we have built. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him."

Paul Casey is not included in the published field of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

He's one of four eligible for the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs that isn't committed to the field reserved for 100 at TPC Boston. Dustin Johnson (sabbatical), Graeme McDowell (baby) and Sergio Garcia (rest) were known DNPs, and now Casey's ties off a loose end. In an interview at The Barclays, he said that he, like G-Mac, is also going to become a father soon. "The 14th of September [was the due date] but it's going to be early for various reasons," he said. The Brit entered the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 118th. With a T22 at Ridgewood, he rose to 85th, so he will not advance to next week's BMW Championship. For the time being, Casey is included in the published field at the Omega European Masters on Sept. 4-7.

With the conclusion of today's WinCo Foods Portland Open, the top 25 on the Web.com Tour money list have earned 2014-15 PGA TOUR cards.

Max Homa shared 60th place at Pumpkin Ridge today and finished comfortably at 17th in earnings thanks to a win and another two top 10s. Because he made eight starts on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, he will not qualify as a rookie in his first year with a card. However, 13 of his fellow graduates are rookie eligible. The other 24 grads (* = 2014-15 PGA TOUR rookie): *Carlos Ortiz (1st); *Andrew Putnam (2nd); *Zack Sucher (3rd); *Adam Hadwin (4th); *Justin Thomas (5th); Alex Cejka (6th); *Blayne Barber (7th); *Tony Finau (8th); Jason Gore (9th); Steven Alker (10th); Andres Gonzales (11th); *Jon Curran (12th); Derek Fathauer (13th); Cameron Percy (14th); *Daniel Berger (15th); *Jonathan Randolph (16th); *Mark Hubbard (18th); Steve Wheatcroft (19th); Ryan Armour (20th); *Byron Smith (21st); Bill Lunde (22nd); Fabian Gomez (23rd); *Roger Sloan (24th); Kyle Reifers (25th). All but Ortiz (exempt from reshuffle) will compete in the Web.com Tour Finals for opening reshuffle position.

Carlos Ortiz held on for an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open and claimed his third Web.com Tour title of the season.

Ortiz traded three birdies for three bogeys on his final lap around Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge to post 14-under 272. The irons were the key to his success, landing 14 GIR in the finale and ranking third for the week with 57. With this victory, Ortiz will avoid all reshuffles on the PGA TOUR via as a three-time winner and the leader of the final regular season money list. He is the 10th player in Web.com Tour history, and first since 2009 when Michael Sim completed the feat, to receive a battlefield promotion to the PGA TOUR. Of course, given that the season-ending Wyndham Championship was last week, the promotion is nothing more than an honorary badge for the record books.

Troy Merritt carded a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of The Barclays to end his week in a share of 46th at 2-under 282.

Merritt ended the week 101st in the FedExCup standings, just missing the mark of the top 100 for inclusion into the Deutsche Bank Championship later this week. While eight of the other exclusions were known when the cut fell on Friday, others have now sealed their fate. They are: Jonas Blixt (102nd); Retief Goosen (103rd); Kevin Kisner (104th); Nick Watney (105th); Luke Guthrie (106th); Lee Westwood (107th); Rory Sabbatini (108th); Bryce Molder (109th); Brian Davis (110th); Boo Weekley (111th); Martin Flores (112th); Ricky Barnes (113th); Jhonattan Vegas (115th); Steve Stricker (116th); David Toms (118th); Tim Wilkinson (119th).

Hunter Mahan lit up Ridgewood Country Club for a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of The Barclays to claim the title by two strokes at 14-under 270.

Mahan was on fire for the majority of his round, circling seven birdies without a blemish on his first 17 holes before a bogey at the last. Three of his last four birdies were of note, holing putts from 27'10", 10'11" and 21'7" at the par-5 13th, par-3 15th and par-5 17th holes, respectively. Irons were the key to his round and his week. He landed 15 GIR for the afternoon and a tournament-leading 58 for the week. Mahan entered the week ranked 62nd in the FedExCup standings and without a victory on the PGA TOUR since the 2012 Shell Houston Open. With today's title -- his sixth on the PGA TOUR -- the American moves to first in the FEC standings and into the mix for a captain's pick for the upcoming Ryder Cup. Considering captain Tom Watson will name his three selections after the Deutsche Bank Championship, Mahan's timing couldn't have been much better. Mahan also clinches the opportunity to extend his streak of competing in every event in FedExCup Playoffs history.

Birthday boy Cameron Tringale carded a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of The Barclays to post 12-under 272, good for a share of second place with Stuart Appleby and Jason Day.

The trio finished two strokes adrift of champion Hunter Mahan. Tringale, who turned 27 years of age today, played his first 17 holes at Ridgewood Country Club without a blemish, but pushed his tee shot at the par-4 18th into the trees and eventually squared a costly bogey. Of his six birdies, only his 13'2" effort at the par-3 15th fell from outside of 10 feet. His 15 GIR were the best of the Georgia Tech product's week and he ended the tournament inside the top 10 in driving accuracy and strokes gained-putting. His consolations are twofold. First, he's vaults into 10th in the FedExCup standings, so he's virtually certain to qualify for his first TOUR Championship. Second, today's T2 goes in the books as his career-best finish. It betters a solo third at the 2013 Valspar Championship.

Sergio Garcia will not compete in this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

In an interview at Firestone three weeks ago, Garcia intimated that he wants to be fresh for the Ryder Cup and might not show at all four stops in the FedExCup Playoffs. He'll finish outside the top 55 at The Barclays today, but remain inside the top 15 in points, so he can afford a week off. "Off to NYC to watch the U.S. Open tennis & spend time with good friends. Will be nice to disconnect for a week to be ready again for Denver!," he tweeted today.

With a 4-under-par 33-35=68 in his final round of the D+D REAL Czech Masters, Jamie Donaldson recorded a two-stroke victory over 54-hole leader Bradley Dredge.

The Welshmen battled all week. Donaldson held the outright lead after each of the first two rounds before slipping two back (with Denmark's Søren Kjeldsen) entering today's finale. They played together today at Albatross Golf Resort in Prague where Donaldson set the early tone, closing the gap with birdies on his first two pars. With another at the par-3 third and Dredge opening par-par-bogey, Donaldson was suddenly up by two. Dredge has nothing all day and settled for an even-par 37-35=72. "This is big – it’s been an amazing week," said the 38-year-old champ headed to his first Ryder Cup. "I didn’t get here until late; I needed to play well either this week or next week, or both, to guarantee my place in the Ryder Cup Team so there was a lot on the line and this week I played really well, so that’s great."
