Zach Johnson rekindled his form at TPC Deere Run today by opening his title defense of the John Deere Classic with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-31=64, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

This is what the doctor ordered for the recently inconsistent Iowan. He split 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to seven birdies. Best of all, he wasn't tested all day as all three of his par saves were 27 inches or closer. His most notable birdie conversions measured 21'11" at the 15th hole and 21'5" at 5. ZJ has now carded 17 consecutive rounds under par at TPC Deere Run.

Jason Day has chosen not to compete in this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Another one bites the dust, but at least we have ample time to adjust. It's possible that the conditions at TPC Four Seasons are at the core of many of these withdrawals, but tournament officials are still planning on crowning a champion at the conclusion of 72 holes. UPDATE: Mike McAllister of PGATOUR.com relayed to his followers on Twitter that Day experienced dizziness during today's pro-am. He'll return home to Ohio for an evaluation.

Ian Poulter alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's pulled out of this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Poulter wrote, "I will not be competing this week in Texas, I picked up a slight strain in the Gym on Monday, so taking precautions and not chancing it." He didn't specify exactly what hurts, but he added in a follow-up tweet that he's not planning on playing again until the U.S. Open. He's been in good form, so this is a tough pill to swallow for some gamers, but that he's given us an entire day to adjust is appreciated. UPDATE: Mike McAllister of PGATOUR.com reported on Twitter that Poulter's injury is in his back.

Will Zalatoris has withdrawn from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship after requiring an appendectomy.

Talk about having a day. It was just a few hours ago that we notified you that he had received one of the last two sponsor exemptions into the tournament. However, as relayed by Golfweek.com, Zalatoris' mom said that Will awoke this morning with strong pain. Upon examination, doctors found a perforation and performed surgery immediately. "We hated hearing about Will’s medical issue this morning, but right now we’re just wishing him well for a speedy recovery, and we are confident he’ll be back playing in this tournament in the future," said David Corrigan, chairman of the tournament. Zalatoris is expected to be sidelined 4-6 weeks.

Troy Matteson navigated Gentle Creek Country Club in Prosper, Texas, in bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-31=62 in today's open qualifier for the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, good for a share of medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

The two-time PGA TOUR winner buried an eagle and five birdies on the modified track. Due to recent rain in the area, the 14th and 18th holes were converted to par 3s, giving the layout six for the four-spotter. Creighton Honeck also went bogey-free, scoring 7-under 29-33=62 with seven birdies. Austin Cook was the third to post 62, doing so with an eagle, six birdies and one bogey en route to respective nines of 32 and 30. Christopher Brown wrangled the final spot up for grabs with a 6-under 31-32=63. He poured in eight birdies before closing bogey-par-bogey. The field at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas is now complete at 156.

At 14-under-per 65-65=130, W.C. Liang breezed to medalist honors at today's U.S. Open sectional qualifier at Japan's Kinojo Golf Club in Soja in the Okayama Prefecture.

Masahiro Kawamura of Japan took runner-up honors at 12-under 65-67=132. The 21-year-old converted an eagle and 11 birdies while dropping just one shot.

As a result of uninspiring results, Jarrod Lyle has decided not to play again during the 2014-15 season, sitting out until the Frys.com Open in October.

He's nowhere near his projection entering the season. It's hard enough to resume competitive golf at the highest level, much less in the wake of his serious health battles. So, Lyle and his family will repair their homeland of Australia to regroup. "I need to stress that this decision has nothing to do with my recent illness; I am still healthy and cancer-free," he said. "As the year progressed, it has become increasingly obvious that I am simply not in a position to compete on the PGA TOUR. My goal every single week out here, just like the rest of the field, is to play my best and to be competitive. ... My family and I have had a tough road over the last few years, and now that my health has been given the all clear it is time to turn my attention fully to my career. Just like I did whatever it took to fight for my life in the last few years, I am now going to do whatever it takes to fight for my job."

With a piece of 10th place at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Ben Martin played his way into an exemption for The Open Championship on July 16-19.

Martin started the week slotted 50th in the Official World Golf Ranking from which the top 50 in today's latest edition would be exempt into the field of 156 at St. Andrews. He opened and closed Colonial with 4-under 66s and finished as one of eight at 9-under 271, three strokes off the pace of champion Chris Kirk. As a result, Martin moved to 48th in the OGWR. He's one of eight previously ineligible who punched tickets into the season's third major. The others: J.B. Holmes (13th in the OWGR); Brandt Snedeker (32nd); Ryan Moore (34th); Paul Casey (36th); Branden Grace (37th); Matt Every (46th); Bernd Wiesberger (47th).

At 2-under-par 69-71-69-69=278, Paul Casey settled for a share of 43rd place at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, but he leaves town with an exemption into the U.S. Open on June 18-21.

Truth be told, the Brit knew that he'd be exempt once the Official World Golf Ranking was updated following the conclusion of all action this weekend. The top 60 in the latest edition are granted tee times at Chambers Bay. At 36th, Casey is one of 24 previous ineligible that are now officially in the major. The others: J.B. Holmes (13th in the OWGR); Ian Poulter (24th); Lee Westwood (26th); Jamie Donaldson (27th); Victor Dubuisson (30th); Ryan Moore (34th); Thongchai Jaidee (35th); Branden Grace (37th); Danny Willett (39th); Anirban Lahiri (43rd); Miguel Angel Jiménez (44th); Joost Luiten (45th); Matt Every (46th); Bernd Wiesberger (47th); Ben Martin (48th); Shane Lowry (50th); Stephen Gallacher (51st); Tommy Fleetwood (52nd); Charley Hoffman (55th); George Coetzee (57th); Francesco Molinari (58th); Marc Warren (59th); Marc Leishman (60th).

Chris Kirk authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in today's final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational to post 12-under 268, good for a one-stroke victory over a trio of runners-up.

Kirk began his final frame in a two-way tie for fourth and three shots back of the 54-hole lead. He required 27 putts on his round, but none was more crucial or clutch than the 7'1" putt he drained at the last for par. On his round, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-6 in scrambling. The 30-year-old, who celebrated his birthday on May 8, recorded an eagle-3 on the first and a birdie on the ninth, book-ending his lone bogey at the par-4 seventh. He added par breakers on Nos. 12 and 15, closing the weekend 65-66 for the victory. This is Kirk's fourth PGA TOUR title in 131 starts as a professional. It's his first since the 2014 Deutsche Bank Championship. He's already exempt into all of the remaining majors and the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Colin Montgomerie navigated the Pete Dye Course in French Lick, Indiana, to the tune of 8-under-par 72-69-70-69=280, good for a four-stroke victory at the 76th edition of the Senior PGA Championship.

The defending champ slept on a three-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer, and then traded six birdies with three bogeys in the finale. Esteban Toledo finished alone in second place at 4-under 284. Woody Austin took solo third at 3-under 285. Langer closed with 74 for outright sixth place at even-par 288. For the week, Montgomerie totaled 15 birdies and dropped just seven strokes, all with bogeys. He won't turn 52 until June, but this is already his third title in a major on the 50-and-over circuit. Today's exempt him into the PGA Championship on Aug. 13-16. He missed the cut the first time the major was contested at Whistling Straits in 2010, but the Scot survived last year's test at Valhalla and placed T69. Incidentally, because he also won the 2014 U.S. Senior Open, he's already exempt into the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay on June 18-21.
