Billy Horschel stole the clubhouse lead with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round of the TOUR Championship.

He missed only one green in regulation and bogeyed that hole (No. 7), but Horschel picked off five birdies in what was his first competitive loop of East Lake Golf Club. Included in the set were conversions from 14'9" and 10'4" at the 11th and 14th holes, respectively.

Willy Wilcox opened his week at The Honda Classic with a 6-over-par 37-39=76 before withdrawing ahead of his second round tee time. No injury was cited at the time of the WD.

Wilcox missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in his first of three starts on a medical extension. He's down to one start on that Minor Medical Extension after today's WD. Wilcox needs $41,049 or 55.399 FedExCup Points in his next PGA TOUR start to retain his TOUR card. The 30-year-old finished T5 on the Web.com Tour last week (Panama Claro Championship) so his game is not too far off. In his opening lap this week he circled one birdie but also swallowed three bogeys and a pair of doubles. Wilcox is very good at passing along information directly to his fans via Twitter so we will update if any more news pops up about a potential injury.

Prior to his round two tee time, Matt Every has withdrawn from The Honda Classic. No injury was cited, but he was 14-over after day one.

If there was anytime for the Florida Gator to break out of his slump, you'd expect it to happen in his home state. This wasn't the week, though, as he swallowed seven bogeys, two doubles, and a triple in round one while taking on PGA National's Champion Course. This goes in the books as his 16th straight missed cut and gamers can continue to avoid Every until he shows any sign of form.

Darren Fichardt posted a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in round two of the Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in South Africa, good enough for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead of 11-under 132.

The local man was one of 98 players who had to complete their opening rounds on Friday morning after play was suspended Thursday afternoon due to waterlogging. After a further delay, Fichardt finished off a bogey-free 66 on the par-71 West Course and then matched that score on the tougher, par-72 East. The 41-year-old kicked off with a five-foot birdie at No. 1 and then ticked 3, 4 and 6 before taking the lead on his own with an eagle-3 at 8. He made his first bogey of the week at 10 and, after seven pars, made his 24th hole of the day a birdie-4 to set the clubhouse target. That's currently a shot clear of compatriot Jacques Kruyswijk and two in front of defending champion Haydn Porteous.

Branden Grace withdrew from The Honda Classic following a birdie-free, 7-over-par 36-41=77 in round one. There was no injury cited the time of the WD. UPDATE: Grace alerted his fans via Twitter that he strained a muscle in his rotator cuff but expects to return next week.

The South African swallowed five bogeys and a double bogey without circling a single birdie in his navigation of PGA National's Champion Course. It was his third attempt at The Honda Classic, and he's now 1-for-3 with a T71 in 2013 still his best. There was no reason for the WD provided but we'll update if/when that information becomes available. Grace is currently committed to next week's WGC-Mexico Championship where gamers should be ready to jump back on board, unless an injury becomes apparent. UPDATE: Grace alerted his fans via Twitter that he strained a muscle in his rotator cuff but expects to return next week.

Wesley Bryan tore through PGA National’s Champion Course in round one of The Honda Classic, piecing together a 6-under-par 30-34=64 to grab a share of the early clubhouse lead with Cody Gribble.

The 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year is making his tournament debut, but did not arrive without course knowledge. Bryan finished T9 at the 2015 Web.com Tour Q-School event held at PGA National. He opened on the back nine today and circled two birdies before the turn to offset his lone bogey which came at the par-4 14th after missing a 5'1" par-saving attempt. After the turn, Bryan leaned heavily on the flat stick, splashing home three putts from 9-to-14 feet, leading to a five-birdie inward nine. If Bryan can hold onto his current co-lead, it will go in the books as his second-career lead/co-lead after any round (co-led after R2 of the 2016 John Deere Classic en route to a T8).

Cameron Percy withdrew during round one of The Honda Classic, he was 2-over thru 11 at the time of his WD. No injury news has been provided at this point.

The Aussie opened on the back nine with a bogey at the par-4 10th. He traded a bogey at the 17th with a birdie at the 18th before making the turn at a respectable 1-over 36. Percy swallowed a third bogey at the par-4 second after finding trouble in the fairway bunker and called it quits after his tee shot on the following hole. The Web.com Tour grad was making his second appearance at The Honda Classic, first since a T71 in his 2013 debut. There was no injury cited at the time of the WD, but we will pass along that information if/when it becomes available.

Making his debut at The Honda Classic, Cody Gribble pieced together a 6-under-par 31-33=64, grabbing the early clubhouse lead on day one.

The lefty arrived on the heels of four straight missed cuts, but you'd never know it by watching today's round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways en route to hitting all 18 greens in regulation. He is the first player in Honda history to land all 18 greens. Gribble walked off the course gaining 4.202 strokes approaching-the-green. His putter was not quiet, either, as he roped in six putts from 9'9" or longer, including a pair from just under 28 feet. If the clubhouse lead holds on by day's end, it will be his second lead after any round on TOUR, with the previous being after R4 of his victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall.

Ben Crane caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 4-under-par 35-31=66 during round one of The Honda Classic, finding himself inside the top 5 on the AM leaderboard.

PGA National's Champion Course can be a real challenge, but it's much easier when you're making putts from everywhere. That's exactly what Crane did in round one. He opened on the back nine and dropped in five putts from outside nine feet. That was all before making the turn, converting two more putts from 9-to-11 feet on his way into the clubhouse. The big whopper was a 32'5" splash for birdie at the par-3 15th. Overall, Crane walked off the course gaining 5.107 strokes putting. The 40-year-old is no stranger to success around here, posting a T12 in 2008 and solo third in 2009. It's unlikely he can maintain this torrid putting pace but it's given him a nice head start on the field.

Scott Stallings twirled a 3-under-par 36-37=67 during his opening navigation of PGA National's Champion Course at the Honda Classic, circling a hole-in-one at the par-3 15th along the way.

Stallings arrived in good form, posting a solo eighth at the CareerBuilder Challenge and a T14 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am over his last three starts. He kept that momentum rolling today, posting his second-lowest score at PGA National's Champion Course (4-under 66, R2 of 2013 edition). The clear highlight of the round came at the 15th where he holed his tee shot at the 179-yard par 3. It will go in the books as his third-career ace on the PGA TOUR (2016 Valero Texas Open and 2011 Transitions Championship). Making his fourth appearance at the Honda Classic, Stallings is still looking for his first top 25 here, and is well on his way after a solid opening round.

Tim Wilkinson had a short week at the Honda Classic, withdrawing after 12 holes, citing a back injury.

The Kiwi was making his sixth appearance at this event, posting a 4-for-5 record with a WD in 2010 (food poisoning). This time around he opened with a double bogey, adding another double at the par-3 fifth, and also sprinkled regular bogeys at Nos. 3, 10, and 11. That placed him at 7-over thru 12 holes and he called it quits from there. Wilkinson arrived with five straight cuts made, so gamers shouldn't lose interest, long-term, over this one bad outing.

Paul Peterson blitzed Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club's West Course for a bogey-free 9-under-par 31-31=62 in round one of the Joburg Open on Thursday, good enough for a two-shot clubhouse lead before play was called off early due to heavy rain.

The American made the big breakthrough on the European Tour with victory at last summer's D+D REAL Czech Masters after a 64-67 weekend finish. He went two lower than that Saturday round after pouring in four birdies in his final five holes (14, 15, 16 and 18) today. The left-hander was already 5-under by that point having started fast with circles at 1, 2, 5, 6 and 9 on his outward half. He leads by two from English duo Paul Waring and Aaron Rai although 103 players still have to complete their rounds and George Coetzee (-5 after 13) and Adilson Da Silva (-5 after 12) could still reel him in. Peterson withdrew after a 77 in his opener at this event last year but the straight-hitting 28-year-old has been in decent form with T29 in Malaysia and T28 at the Qatar Masters on his last two starts. "I feel like I've been playing really well the last few weeks and I feel like a round like this has been building," said Peterson, who will play the tougher East Course in round two.
