Louis Oosthuizen was one of 10 internationals to qualify automatically for next month's Presidents Cup.

The South African finished fifth in points at the conclusion of the Deutsche Bank Championship. He's scheduled to return to competition at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship on Sept. 26-29, one week prior to the biennial competition to be held at Muirfield Village. Oosthuizen is taking this time to rest and recover from hip and neck injuries. If he's unable to play in the Presidents Cup, captain Nick Price will designate a replacement. The other nine qualifiers shape up as follows: 1. Adam Scott (sixth appearance); 2. Jason Day (second); 3. Charl Schwartzel (second); 4. Ernie Els (eighth); 6. Hideki Matsuyama (first); 7. Branden Grace (first); 8. Graham DeLaet (first); 9. Richard Sterne (first); 10. Ángel Cabrera (fourth). Price will announce his two captain's selections at 2:00 p.m. ET on Wednesday, Sept. 4.

Chris Stroud withdrew from the Valero Texas Open following a 7-over-par 39-40=79 during his opening round. There was no reason cited for why he called it quits.

The Lamar University product split 10 (of 14) fairways today but found just six greens in regulation (-2.804 strokes gained approach). One highlight of his round was a 78'11" hole out for birdie at the par-3 13th. It was his lone bogey of the day, not able to erase an eight-pack of bogeys. On the greens, he missed three putts from inside eight feet. There is no reason cited for the WD but this will go in the books as his 12th career mid-tournament WD (309 starts).

Billy Horschel carried over his momentum from last week, building a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 during the opening round of the Valero Texas Open, just one off the pacesetter Grayson Murray.

Arriving fresh off a T5 last week at the RBC Heritage, Horschel is not slowing down yet. Today, he put on a ball-striking clinic, pelting 15 greens which ranks 2nd to only Keegan Bradley at the moment. Horschel walked off the course gaining 2.050 strokes off-the-tee and another 1.597 strokes on approach. Coming down the stretch, the Florida Gator likely feels like he even left a few strokes out there, missing four birdie looks from the 9-to-14 foot range on the back nine. Last week's T5 was Horschel's first top 40 in his last nine starts but today's round suggests that he's ready to turn his season around and last week's T5 may not have been a one-week flash in the pan.

Ryan Moore blitzed the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, walking off with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 during round one of the Valero Texas Open, placing him inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

Moore was a tactician off the tee today, splitting 13 (of 14) fairways to make his approach shots a bit more manageable. Battling with blustery conditions, he only landed 12 greens in regulation but that was plenty good today. In fact, he walked off the course gaining at least one stroke in all four sub-categories of strokes-gained stats. A very balanced attack. In Moore's two previous starts at this event he's collected top 20s but was outside the top 30 after R1 in both of those. With a fast start now under his belt, perhaps he can rattle off a new personal best at the Valero (T8, 2012).

Alvaro Quiros birdied the final two holes in a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to end round one of the Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Morocco tied at the top alongside Bradley Dredge.

Afternoon starter Quiros opened up with birdie-3 at the 1st hole and made another push with back-to-back circles at 5 and 6. He posted his next red number at 10 before wiping that out with his only square of the day at 14. But after Dredge had set the new clubhouse lead of 5-under, the Spaniard matched it with a pair of closing gains at 17 and 18. "I have to recognise that it was a great round of golf," he said. "The score is good but I will say that the level that I displayed today from tee to green, it's been unbelievable. I know that five under is a very good score but it looks like it's a little bit short for the game that I have displayed today." Quiros has missed four of his last five cuts and could only finish 145th on last season's Race to Dubai but he showed what he's still capable of by capturing the 2017 Rocco Forte Open in Italy, a result which secured his exemption again. He finished that tournament in a tie for fourth after the opening lap.

Battling tough conditions on day one of the Valero Texas Open, Chesson Hadley manhandled the AT&T Oaks Course to the tune of a 4-under-par 33-35=68, placing him just one off the pace set by Grayson Murray.

For a string bean that calls himself the Wind Sock, some of Hadley's best career rounds have come in windy conditions. We can add another to his wind resume today as he circled five birdies while dropping just one shot. That came on a day where the morning wave averaged 73.83 strokes (5.83 shots more than Hadley). Strong short game was the name of the game today as he sank two putts from outside 13 feet and also holed out twice from just off the green (21'3" and 26'0"). Playing his 11th career round at TPC San Antonio, this goes in the books as his new personal best. That's saying a lot since he recorded a T4 here back in 2015 (71-72-71-71). Entering the week ranked 2nd on TOUR in strokes gained approach, Hadley should continue to give himself scoring chances this week. He should keep his name in the mix as long as he can avoid the big number.

Playing Royal Golf Dar Es Salam for the first time since finishing T24 there in 2001, Bradley Dredge posted a 5-under-par 35-32=67 to end round one of the Trophee Hassan II in Morocco tied for the lead with Alvaro Quiros.

The duo, who both started in the afternoon wave, are a shot clear of Oliver Fisher, Joakim Lagergren, Erik Van Rooyen, Lorenzo Gagli and Benjamin Rusch. Dredge started his day at the 10th and put up two early birdies at 11 and 12 before giving a shot back at the 16th. The Welshman sprinkled five birdies against a single bogey (4th) coming home, those gains coming at 1, 2, 5, 7 and 8. The final red number broke him out of a multi-way tie at the top although Quiros caught him soon after. Dredge is way down at 218th on the Race to Dubai having played just three tournaments after losing his playing privileges last season. This is the first time he's finished round one in the top 15 since June's Nordea Masters. He also took first-round leader honors at the 2017 Qatar Masters but fell away to finish T21. "I haven't played a great deal this year. I feel as though it's progressing quite well at the moment so I'm quite pleased the way it's trending, as a lot of guys say," Dredge said.

Grayson Murray had just one hiccup on his route to a 5-under-par 35-32=67 during round one of the Valero Texas Open, good for the early clubhouse lead as the afternoon wave takes to the course.

Battling blustery conditions on day one, Murray erased one double bogey with seven birdies today. Strong driving was the catalyst as he gained 2.874 strokes off-the-tee at the time he signed his card. From there, his short game also kicked in. Before his day was done he sprinkled in three putts from outside nine feet with the longest being a 21'11" birdie at the par-3 13th. Murray also holed out from 28'3" for birdie at the 11th. Given the tough conditions today, this is currently beating the field average by 6.903 strokes. If this lead holds then it would be Murray's first career first-round lead or co-lead on the PGA TOUR.

World No. 10 Sergio Garcia readies for his third Valero Texas Open and arrives off a missed cut (by 10) at Augusta National GC on 15-over 159, the worst score ever by a defending champion at the Masters.

The Spaniard is the only player in the 156-man field that's in the top 20 in OWGR and is a 14/1 pre-tourney fave outright. This is his third VTO, second at the par-72 TPC San Antonio. He played the first edition in 2010 and finished T45 (73-68-73-73). The transplanted Texan's MC at the Masters ended a run of three straight top-10 finishes, including a T9 at the Match Play in Austin (3-1-0 record), where he won his group as a 7-seed and then lost 3-and-1 to 45-seed Kyle Stanley in the Round of 16. He hasn't won on TOUR since last year's Masters (26 starts ago), but does have two worldwide wins since, most recently at the Singapore Open 13 weeks ago. This is the 25th event of the season and just the 38-year-old's sixth start, third since his daughter was born 35 days ago. Three of his 10 TOUR titles have come in Texas, most recently the 2016 Bryon Nelson.

Prior to the start of the event, Bob Estes has withdrawn from this week's Valero Texas Open. Rick Lamb will take his place in the field. UPDATE: Estes provided some insight via Twitter saying, "I’ve been fighting the pollen for the last two weeks and the pollen is winning. I probably shouldn’t have played last week but gave it a go."

Playing on a Major Medical, Estes has four starts remaining with 282.510 FedExCup Points (or $463,984) needed to fulfill the terms. There was no word on why he backed out this week but he does have a pinned tweet that says the Wells Fargo Championship and AT&T Byron Nelson will be next on his schedule.

Arriving off a career-best T8 in his latest start, Abraham Ancer brings a snowball of momentum into this week's Valero Texas Open.

The San Antonio resident arrives with finishes of T16, T13, and T8 in his last three starts. There was no ShotLink at the Corales but he gained 4.7 strokes on approach at the Valspar and another 3.1 strokes at the Houston Open. With his iron game locked in, Ancer appears to be finally showcasing his potential on the big stage. After a disappointing 2016 rookie season, the Texas native went down to the Web.com Tour and rattled off seven top 10s in 24 starts to earn his way back. With local knowledge and current form on his side, Ancer should be a popular play in all weekly formats this week. His lone appearance at the Valero resulted in a T42 (2016).

Prior to the start of the event, Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Valero Texas Open. Zac Blair will take his spot in the field.

The 47-year-old continues to struggle with health on a week-to-week basis. He cited a thumb injury during a final-round WD at this year's Honda Classic. He also pulled out early ahead of the Corales Puntacana Resort & Club Championship, last month. Cejka returned after that event but he missed the cut at the Houston Open. There is no word on what is ailing him this week but gamers can continue to avoid Cejka in all weekly formats, given his history with pre-tournament and mid-tournament WDs.
