Jeff Overton crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Frys.com Open to assume sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

He split only seven (of 14) fairways but stood over 15 chances to break par en route to an eagle (from 21'1" at the par-5 ninth hole) and five birdies, a set that included respective conversions from 24'9" and 30'5" at Nos. 8 and 17. Overton also holed out from the rough nine yards away at 13. He even kept his card spotless with a par save measuring 10'1" at the par-4 10th. The 30-year-old is coming off a disappointing 2013 season during which he finished 108th in the FedExCup.

Jordan Spieth's struggles continued in the opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship after which he signed for a 4-over-par 39-36=75.

He penciled only six pars at TPC Boston today. That gives you a pretty good idea of his haphazard experience. Spieth rallied for four birdies on 11 greens in regulation, including connections from 28'11", 16'1" and 11'6" at the 15th, first and second holes, respectively, but he failed to get up and down even one time en route to seven bogeys. He added an eighth bogey with a three-putt from just outside 50 feet at the par-4 14th hole. So, the likely Player of the Year has opened the FedExCup Playoffs with no better than a 73 in three rounds. He'll wake up on Saturday in jeopardy of missing consecutive cuts for the first time on the PGA TOUR. This week's DBC is his 81st and 73rd as a professional.

Colt Knost crafted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishign with a share of the clubhouse lead with Luke Donald.

After missing the cut at The Barclays, Knost arrived in New England positioned 95th in the FedExCup standings. Oddly enough, all four of his top 10s this seasons are T10s. At TPC Boston today, the big fella split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation en route to six birdies against two early birdies. Starting on the back side, he recorded a zero-putt 11-yarder for birdie at the par-4 13th, and the bounced back from his second bogey with a birdie-3 from 15'4" at 15. Knost picked off three birdies on his way in, including conversions from 14'7" and 23'11" at Nos. 2 and 8, respectively. At last check, both of his strokes-gained stats sat north of 2.130.

Luke Donald enjoyed a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and signed his card as the clubhouse leader.

The Englishman is playing for his life in the Playoffs for the second consecutive week. After opening at 119th in points, a T24 at The Barclays lifted him to 87th, but it also extended a longer arc of form dating back to a top 20 in Ireland in late May. Today at TPC Boston, he stood over 14 opportunities to break par and converted six times for birdie. Rolls from 13'8" and 21'9" at the seventh and 10th holes, respectively, stand out, but he also salvaged par from 11'1" at the par-4 14th. He squared two bogeys, both as a result of missing the GIR. This is his lowest opening aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he spun the same in the first round of the 2014 Honda Classic 18 months ago.

Padraig Harrington alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's going to be out of commission for several months with a knee injury.

The Irishman wrote, "I've had my MRI on my injure right knee. I've a tear in the meniscus. 3 months of managing it in the gym and then a winter op." He didn't specify how long he expects to be sidelined after surgery, but at 44 years of age, it'll probably be a little longer than if he were in his prime. Harrington finished the PGA TOUR season at 103rd in the FedExCup standings. He fully exempt through 2016-17 for winning The Honda Classic this past winter. He's currently 124th in the Race to Dubai standings, but that's only relevant to explain why he won't be missing anything on the European Tour while he recovers.

Bradley Dredge compiled a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round at the M2M Russian Open and holds the halfway lead of 10-under 132.

That's a stroke clear of Lee Slattery and two shots in front of first-round leader Daniel Gaunt. Dredge took a different route to his second straight 66 at Skolkovo Golf Club. After hitting 15 greens in regulation in round one, he found just 11 in the right number on Friday but was a perfect 7-for-7 in scrambling to keep a bogey off his card. He started fast with birdies at 10, 12 and 13 and circled another at the par-5 18th to turn in 32. He quietened on the second nine with eight pars and a single birdie at 5. Dredge has made just one bogey over his first 36 holes but if he keeps putting this much pressure on his short game, he'll face a big challenge to hold his lead over the weekend. The most recent of his two European Tour wins came way back in 2006 so his loss of the winning habit is another factor to overcome.

In a brief report filed by GolfChannel.com's Rex Hoggard on Aug. 29, it's anticipated that Sergio Garcia will return to competition at the BMW Championship on Sept. 17-20.

Hoggard cited Garcia's agent, Carlos Rodríguez, as the source. The golfer started the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 31st in points. He sat out The Barclays and slid to 43rd. He's not competing in this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, but will remain inside the top 70 to advance to the third leg at Conway Farms where he placed T18 in 2013. It behooves the Spaniard to play if for no other reason than it will mark his 15th start on the PGA TOUR this season, so he'll be fulfilling the membership requirement without the need of a dispensation for the Open de España in May. The TOUR has granted waivers for homeland events to golfers who can claim another tour as a home circuit.

Bubba Watson sat out today's pro-am for the Deutsche Bank Championship due to a sore back.

Just as Jason Day (back) and Dustin Johnson (illness) withdrew from last week's pro-am for The Barclays, the lefty will take his turn concerning gamers about his ability to peg it at TPC Boston for Friday's first round. While Day (win) and DJ (T9) thrived at Plainfield, each issue must be approached individually, but investors can find relief in knowing that Watson is expected to play the DBC. He's scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 9:30 a.m. ET. Of course, nothing replaces the peace of mind of being prepared in the case of an 11th-hour WD.

Scott Jamieson hung up a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round at the M2M Russian Open at Skolkovo Golf Club, good enough for a share of the day one lead alongside New Zealand's Daniel Gaunt.

The duo are a shot clear of Lee Slattery and Bradley Dredge while an eight-man group at 4-under includes defending champion David Horsey. Taking advantage of his early tee time, the Scot circled birdies at 10 and 13 on his opening nine and reeled off four on the spin after making the turn. Only one of his gains came on the four par 5s so he'll feel there's more in the tank over the next three days. Jamieson paved the way for his bogey-free lap by splitting 12 (of 13) fairways while he hit 13 greens in regulation. He had 5-for-5 scrambling stats and was also a perfect 4-for-4 from sand. The 31-year-old was solo third when this event was staged at Tseleevo last year so the switch to a new venue has made no difference. In fact, he was also sixth in a Challenge Tour event in his only other start in Russia so he clearly relishes his trips to this part of the globe.

Although eligible for fully exempt status on the PGA TOUR in 2015-16, Lee Westwood will not accept membership.

This is the word from International Sports Management (via Golfweek.com) for whom Westwood is a client. The Englishman is also going through a divorce and will instead focus on the European Tour in what will be a Ryder Cup year. He went 13-for-15 on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 with one top 10 and another seven top 25s before finishing 109th in the FedExCup standings. As a non-member, the 42-year-old will be capped at 12 starts plus special invitations into the majors and THE PLAYERS.

Will Wilcox has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship due to an injury to his right knee.

In a descriptive entry on his website, Wilcox wrote, "On Monday morning of this week, I slammed my right knee into the dash of my rental car, which was set up much differently than my car, while getting in to drive to a fundraiser golf event outside of Atlanta. After attempting to treat it myself with rest and ice, the pain and swelling continued. Over the past few days, I have sought out multiple medical opinions. ... After appointments, X-Ray and a MRI, we have found deep bruising to my patellar tendon, which explains the current pain and difficultly in applying weight to my right knee and leg." At 89th in the FedExCup standings, he will not advance in the Playoffs. "The 2015-16 season will be here very soon," he added. "I am looking forward to getting 100% healthy, rested and prepared for full status on the PGA TOUR for next season and beyond."

In a thorough article at TCPalm.com, Freddie Jacobson revealed that he sat out the last three months of the season due to an ailment and subsequent surgery for his seven-year-old son, Max.

Jacobson was mysteriously outside the ropes since missing the cut at Colonial in late May. It turns out that he devoted his time and attention to caring for Max, who was diagnosed with an anomalous origin of the right coronary artery. Open-heart surgery was suggested and eventually performed in Boston on Aug. 3. Max will be fine and projected to enjoy a normal life span. As for his father, the 40-year-old PGA TOUR winner has tentatively circled the Frys.com Open on Oct. 15-18 to resume competing. Because he finished 167th in the FedExCup standings, Jacobson will be equipped with a medical extension under the family crisis provision. "There’s no guarantees in a sporting world the TOUR would do something like this," he said of the medical. As for his golf game, he added, "I saw my coach for the first time last week and we’ll see where the golf swing is. But I know it’s going to be really tough to leave home this time."
