Kevin Tway fired a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open, then birdied the first playoff hole against Spencer Levin to claim his first Web.com Tour title at 23-under 261.

If Tway's name sounds familiar, it should. He's the son of PGA TOUR winner Bob Tway and a product of the Oklahoma State collegiate golf machine. After opening with birdies on three of his first seven holes at Hillcrest CC, the younger Tway went on a par streak. Just when it looked as if Levin would take home the trophy, Tway rattled off a birdie-eagle-birdie run on 15, 16 and 17 to force a playoff. With this victory, he moves to sixth on the Web.com Tour money list and assures himself a 2013-14 PGA TOUR card.

Satoshi Kodaira accomplished a rare feat on his way around Colonial Country Club, leaving the course with a 4-under-par 30-36=66 to his credit, four off the pace set by Kevin Na.

Kodaira started his afternoon on the 10th tee and started with five pars and a pair of bogeys. His round took a big upswing from there, circling a birdie at the par-4 17th and then adding a huge highlight at the par-5 first. After a 324-yard drive, he holed out from 234 yards for a rare albatross. There have been just 15 of these over the last five seasons and only one this season before today. Kodaira backed it up with a 27'1" birdie splash at the next hole. He'd tack on three more birdies before a disappointing double at the last. He missed a 5'2" putt on that closing one, one of three putts that he missed from inside seven feet today. A recent winner at Harbour Town Golf Links, Kodaira is establishing himself as having an eye for classical design.

Beau Hossler caught fire on day one of the Fort Worth Invitational, tossing together a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64, placing him just two off the pacesetter Kevin Na.

The Texas transplant signed for rounds of 72-76 in his Colonial debut last year, leading to a missed cut. He's fully healthy this year and his improvement continues to show. Today, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways on his way toward 15 greens in regulation. His highlight on the greens came at the par-4 third hole where he drained a 52'1" birdie bomb. Hossler would also add another long-distance conversion from just outside 36 feet (par-3 13th). This round will match his previous low on the PGA TOUR (the fourth time he's posted a round of 64). The 23-year-old has three career top 10s on his resume but he's still searching for his first victory.

Kevin Na was firing on all cylinders en route to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-32=62 during round one of the Fort Worth Invitational, staking his claim as the clubhouse leader.

Na didn't impress with traditional metrics (9 Fairways, 11 GIR) but he gained 2.267 strokes around-the-green and another 3.282 strokes putting. Starting on the back nine, he opened his day with five pars before turning up the heat. On the greens he dropped in notable putts from 24'7" and 46'6" at the 17th and 2nd holes, respectively. Right after the turn, he stiffed his 252-yard approach to 2'1" for a tap-in eagle at the par-5 first. Na walked off with another highlight, holing out from 92'3" at the closing, par-4 ninth. Making his 12th start at Colonial, this beats his previous-low round which was a 7-under 63 in R1 of the 2007 edition. If this lead holds then it'll be his sixth career first-round lead/co-lead with the 2016 Wyndham being the most recent. Two of those previous leads came here at Colonial and all five were shared with at least one other golfer. He's converted 4-of-5 into top 10s.

In-form Lucas Bjerregaard thrashed a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the first round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in England, opening up a one-shot lead over Dean Burmester and Darren Fichardt.

It's a further shot back to Rory McIlroy and English trio Matthew Fitzpatrick, Sam Horsfield and Richard Bland. Here's one for #Teamcurrentform. Bjerregaard came into the event after T5 in the Rocco Forte Open and T6 at the China Open. Contrast that with his course form which shows three missed cuts out of three with his last four rounds over the West Course reading 82, 73, 76, 74. He made a mockery of those numbers today with a string of birdies spread across his afternoon lap. Going out, the Dane birdied 2, 4, 7 and 9 to turn in 31. Further gains at 12 and 16 took him level with the two South Africans in T1 and he secured the solo lead with a walk-off birdie. It's the second tournament in a row he's ended Thursday as the first-round leader having shared top spot with Ryan Evans after an opening 65 at the Rocco Forte Open.

Andrew Putnam turned on the scoring machine in round one of the Fort Worth Invitational, signing for a 6-under-par 33-31=64 to place himself two off the early leader Kevin Na.

Putnam was flirting with flagsticks all day, gaining 4.073 strokes approaching-the-green en route to 15 greens in regulation. That helped set up five scoring chances from inside seven feet while he also knocked in three birdies from the 10-to-18 foot range. Putnam has gained strokes on approach in 10 of his last 13 ShotLink events so this round shouldn't be too shocking for gamers or fans that have been following the Pepperdine product closely. This will go in the record books as his new personal best on the PGA TOUR (excluding the 10-under 62 in team competition). He's previously posted 65 three times, with two of them coming in Texas. There must be something about the Lone Star State that suits this 29-year-old.

Emiliano Grillo pieced together a 6-under-par 32-32=64 during the opening round of the Fort Worth Invitational, placing him just two off the torrid pace set by Kevin Na.

The Argentine was middle-of-the-road in terms of tee-to-green play today, but his putter caught fire to rocket him up the leaderboard. Grillo started his day by missing an 8'1" birdie chance but he didn't let many more opportunities slip past him. By day's end, he splashed home six putts from outside nine feet with the longest coming from just inside 24 feet. Grillo walked off the course gaining 4.289 strokes putting. The 25-year-old entered with a 2-for-2 record here at Colonial CC, finishing T55 in his debut and returning last year to improve with a T24. Gamers shouldn't expect his putter to stay this hot but his ball-striking has room for improvement as the week progresses.

Charley Hoffman blitzed Colonial Country Club en route to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 during round one of the Fort Worth Invitational, good for the early clubhouse lead with play still in progress. UPDATE: Hoffman would later gets pass in the afternoon by Kevin Na who fired an 8-under 62.

Hoffman put on a ball-striking clinic today, striping 11 (of 14) fairways on his way toward 16 greens in regulation. That stellar striking set up eight scoring chances from inside 16 feet, converting on six of them in addition to a 24'3" birdie bomb at the par-4 seventh. Playing his 36th round at Colonial, this eclipses his previous best by two shots (65 in R3/2009 and R1/2006). If this number holds then it'll be Hoffman's seventh career first-round lead/co-lead, first since the 2017 Masters. Unfortunately, he's only converted one of those early leads into a top 10 (T7, 2013 Travelers).

Steve Stricker looked doubtful to even finish the round before rallying his way to a 5-under-par 31-34=65, good for an early seat inside the top 10 at the Fort Worth Invitational.

Stricker opened his day on the back nine and swallowed bogeys at 10 and 13. He was seen grimacing and grabbing his back but a 12'8" birdie splash at the par-4 15th turned his day around. He added two more circles before adding a big bird at the par-5 first hole. It wasn't of the traditional variety as he needed to hole out from the greenside bunker (55 feet) to land his eagle. The 51-year-old steadied his way into the clubhouse where he'll now surely get his back looked at before returning to Colonial Country Club, tomorrow afternoon. Stricker is a past champion here (2009) and arrived with an overall record of 9 cuts made to just 2 missed cuts.

Rory McIlroy won the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on the only other occasion he broke 70 on his opening lap; he'll hope history repeats after firing a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in round one to sit just a shot back from clubhouse leaders Dean Burmester and Darren Fichardt. UPDATE McIlroy ended R1 in T4, two shots behind Lucas Bjerregaard.

The Northern Irishman has a very mixed history at the West Course, surrounding his win in 2014 with missed cuts in 2012, 2013 and 2015. This is his first start at the classic, tree-lined English track in three years but it proved a happy return as he outpaced two bogeys with seven birdies. McIlroy dropped shots at 3 and 9 on his outward nine but recorded three circles (4, 6 and 8) between those hiccups. He continued to make hay on the even-numbered holes, coming home with gains at 10, 12, 14 and 16 before the sequence ended at the last where he had to settle for par. Still, that's an excellent start from the pre-tournament favorite and he's in great shape to kick on in Friday morning's second round.

Darren Fichardt made it a pair of South Africans at the head of the field on day one of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in England, matching the earlier clubhouse total of Dean Burmester with a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66. UPDATE Fichardt ended R1 in T2, one shot behind Lucas Bjerregaard.

Fichardt has missed his last seven cuts in this event and failed to shoot lower than 71 since he posted T8 here 14 years ago. He produced his best ever lap of the West Course thanks to six birdies and 12 pars. The veteran, who won on the South African Sunshine Tour in March, birdied the fourth hole and did the bulk of his scoring around the turn thanks to red numbers at 7, 8, 10 and 12. Another gain at 17 was his third birdie on the par 5s but he couldn't complete the set on the 521-yard closer so finished tied with Burmester. The duo are a shot clear of English pair Richard Bland and Matt Fitzpatrick but whether they'll stay there remains to be seen with the afternoon players making plenty of early birdies.
May 24 - 9:18 AM

Boosted by a hole-out eagle at the 447-yard 15th, Dean Burmester produced an amazing late charge to post an opening 6-under-par 35-31=66 and take a one-shot lead over home duo Matt Fitzpatrick and Richard Bland in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, England. UPDATE Burmester finished the day in T2, one shot behind Lucas Bjerregaard.

The big-hitting South African made a sticky start with a bogey and four pars over his first five holes. Despite a birdie at 6, a run of pars meant he wasn't any sort of threat to the lead walking off the 11th green. But he got his day moving with back-to-back red numbers at 12 and 13 and delivered a sudden jolt to his card by draining his approach at the 15th. Riding that momentum, the World No. 125 added circles at 16 and 18 to secure the clubhouse lead on his own. Burmester was T9 on his debut in this event last year when closing with a 65 so he knows how to go low on the West Course.
