Jim Herman spun a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to finish the week at 16-under 268.

This was Herman's 40th career start and it goes for his first top-10 finish on the PGA TOUR. He circled six birdies and gave back two bogeys on his final lap around TPC Deere Run. His irons were solid all week, landing 57 GIR in 72 tries.

William McGirt bombarded Firestone Country Club with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64 during the first round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Making his tournament debut, McGirt put on a short-game clinic today. He holed out from a greenside bunker (24'4" at the par-3 15th), holed out from the fringe (14'1" at the par-4 17th), holed out from off the green at the last to save par (46'1"), and drained four putts from outside 18 feet. The longest was a 28'11" birdie bomb at the par-3 fifth hole. Overall, he walked off the course gaining 5.507 strokes on, and around, the green. It's extremely unlikely that we see him maintain this short-game play as the week progresses, but he's given himself a nice little head start on the field.

Colt Knost torched Montrêux Golf and Country Club with a 6-under-par 34-32=66 to bag 13 points during the opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

Since the event moved to Modified Stableford scoring in 2012, all four winners have collected at least 10 points in their opening round. Today, Knost exceeded that with 13 points, using a balanced attack to circle seven birdies. He gained 3.89 strokes approaching-the-green but also sank six putts from outside six feet. Most notable was a 33'4" birdie bomb to kick off his round at the par-4 first hole. The SMU alum entered with a paltry 2-for-5 record at the event, but that included a T10 in last year's edition.

Daniel Berger hit just one shot today at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational before calling it quits, citing a shoulder injury.

The Florida State product was set to make his debut at Firestone Country Club, but decided he couldn't play through the pain after his opening tee ball. Since this is a World Golf Championships event and he started the round, he will walk away with a last-place check of $50,500 although it does not count toward the official money ranking. This adds to an already shaky WGC resume, early in his career. He withdrew from this year's WGC-Dell Match Play after injuring his wrist on a stone wall when facing off against Phil Mickelson. A WD-rate of 50 percent in no-cut WGC events is far from ideal. In a tournament that guarantees four rounds of play, this one will sting for gamers.

Boosted by a hole-in-one at the 210-yard 2nd, Lucas Bjerregaard fired a 5-under-par 32-34=66 to take a one-shot lead over Bernd Wiesberger, Thongchai Jaidee, Adrian Otaegui and Thomas Pieters after the opening round of the 100th Open de France.

The Dane drained his tee shot with a seven-iron to give his morning lap of Le Golf National a dramatic early boost and added circles at 3, 5 and 6 against a bogey at 4 to leap to 4-under with just a third of his round gone. Inevitably on such a tough course he quietened after that and splashed red at 10 and 14 before ending with three pars and a bogey at 16. Bjerregaard's big hitting certainly helped him today but 5-for-6 scrambling allowed him to make the most of it. He took just 26 putts. Gamers certainly didn't see this coming as he's 0-for-2 in this event having never broken 74 and had also missed four of his last five cuts on the European Tour. "It's a great start and I think that's what I've been needing these last few past weeks," he said. "I've been playing decent and seeing a lot of improvements. I just haven't really put any good rounds together."

Shane Lowry makes his way back to Firestone Country Club in attempt to defend his throne at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Lowry found himself in a difficult situation this week. As the defending champion, it's almost an unwritten rule that you return to defend. However, his runner-up finish at the U.S. Open catapulted him up the European Tour Ryder Cup Rankings, currently 11th place. With the 100th Open de France giving up 2x Ryder Cup points, it would have been easy for Lowry to bail and head to Paris. Instead, he'll be collecting an easy paycheck this week and gets the opportunity to increase his position in the FedExCup standings (currently 75th). Lowry owns just four top 25s in 12 starts this season but gamers can just look at last year's leaderboard if they need a reminder of his upside this week.

Joey Garber was one of four open qualifiers for this week's Barracuda Championship, signing for a 6-under-par 32-34=66 at Hidden Valley Country Club in Reno, Nevada to punch his ticket.

The Georgia Bulldog finished his amateur career in 2014. He was ranked 31st in the WAGR at the time. More recently he was seen posting a T45 at the Cape Breton Celtic Classic in September, a Mackenzie Tour Event north of the border. He was 3-for-9 playing on the Canadian circuit last season. This will be his second career PGA TOUR start (MC, 2014 Travelers Championship). Three others earned their way into this week's Barracuda Championship: 66-Geoff Gonzalez; Elliott Paylor... 67-Hunter Stewart (Survived 3-for-1 playoff with Martin Trainer and David Gazzolo). All four will be making their tournament debuts at the Barracuda Championship.

J.J. Henry turns his attention to Montrêux Golf and Country Club ahead of this week's Barracuda Championship, arriving as the defending champion and tournament's career money leader.

Henry is just 12-for-19 on the season, ranking 175th in the FedExCup race. While concerning, it's important to remember he had missed 11 cuts in 25 starts leading into his 2015 victory at the Barracuda. He was 150th in the FEC standings at the time. Last year wasn't the first taste of success at this event, as Henry is 9-for-11 with five top 10s, including two victories. Both of his wins have come since the event switched to Modified Stableford Scoring in 2012. The long track record of success makes Henry a very appealing option this week in Reno.

Sponsor invite Jon Rahm conjured up a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to wrap his tournament and pro debut on 13-under 271, good for a two-way T3, four swings shy of fellow sponsor invite and champion Billy Hurley III. UPDATE: Rahm's T3 gets him into the Barracuda so he doesn't have to burn a sponsor exemption.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome with 2013 champ Bill Haas, the 21-year-old began the finale on 12-under and in solo third, three back of Hurley III. He led outright after the week's low round of 64 and co-led thru 36 holes with a second-round 67. The former ASU standout played the weekend in twin 70s to record four red numbers and after taking home low am honors at last week's U.S. Open with T23, he nabs one (of four) spots available this week at Congressional to The Open Championship in three weeks, where he'll make his tournament debut. The two-time Ben Hogan Award winner totaled 20 birdies for the week against seven bogeys en route to his best finish on TOUR in just his sixth career start, supplanting T5 at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Overnight leader and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III steadied a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the Quicken Loans National for a 72-hole aggregate of 17-under 267, good for a three-shot win over Hall of Famer Vijay Singh and his first PGA TOUR title in his 104th career start.

The Naval Academy grad and 607th-ranked player in the world co-led thru 36 holes after opening his fifth appearance in 66-65, and took a two-shot lead into the finale over Hall of Famer and playing competitor Ernie Els after a third-round 67. He went out in 1-under, erasing bogey at the second with birdies on Nos. 1 and 9, but Els had climbed to within one at the break. The 34-year-old 3-putted the par-4 12th (from 28 feet) for bogey-5, but with the shot of his life, he pitched-in from 35 yards away at the 15th for birdie-3 and backed it up with a 27'3" birdie putt on the par-5 16th. Playing this season on conditional status, the Maryland resident is now fully exempt on TOUR thru the 2017-18 season and among other goodies, secures a spot in The Open Championship in three weeks at Royal Troon. He improves to 1-for-3 when the 36-hole leader/co-leader and 1-for-2 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

Hall of Famer and Life Member Vijay Singh smoothed a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's final round of the Quicken Loans National to post 14-under 270, up four places to solo second and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Singh finished in solo second, three back of champion and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III.

The 53-year-old, looking to become the oldest winner on TOUR ever, matched the low round of the day (with three others), circling seven birdies against a lone bogey on a failed scramble on the 71st hole. He bounced back with a 6'1" birdie on the 72nd hole for a walk-off 3 and record his best finish at the QLN, supplanting T7 in 2009, and his best lap in the tournament in his 32nd career round. The Big Fijian nets just his second top 10 of the season in 16 starts (T6, Honda), and if the runner-up holds, it'll be his 28th in 584 career events, first since the 2013-14 Frys.com Open. He'll also claim one of the four spots available this week to The Open Championship at Royal Troon, going to the top four finishers inside the top 12 and ties who were not already exempt.

Ollie Schniederjans crafted a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Air Capital Classic to win his first Web.com Tour event in a playoff.

His 17-under 263 tally was matched by Collin Morikawa (a) and J.J. Spaun, but Schniederjans locked up a win with a birdie on the second playoff hole, which was the par-4 18th. Schniederjans has been eyed as a big prospect after completing a stellar amateur career at Georgia Tech and finishing T12 as an amateur at last year's Open Championship. With this victory, he moves to third on the Web.com Tour money list and essentially secures his 2016-17 PGA TOUR card. He will have considerable value to gamers when the page turns to the new TOUR season.
