Phil Mickelson settled for a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

He said that he felt pretty good entering the week, and his early play today supported it. Mickelson started on the 10th hole and promptly birdied his first two holes. He sat bogey-free 6-under through 16 until his round unraveled at the par-5 eighth hole. After laying up short of a creek, Lefty then rinsed two balls before finding the putting surface with his seventh stroke. Two putts later, it was suddenly a 9. A bogey-5 at the ninth hole seemed fitting, but he's only six strokes off the overnight lead on a course that rolled over for the field of 78 today.

Matt Every put on a ball-striking clinic en route to a Tbogey-free, 9-under-par 29-32=61 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, his career low on the PGA TOUR, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader at Sedgefield Country Club.

The Florida Gator opened his day with a 105-yard hole out for eagle at the par-4 first hole, providing a huge boost of confidence to start the week. He kept his foot on the ground with his irons, giving himself eight more scoring chances from inside nine feet. His aerial attack was good for 6.516 strokes gained approaching-the-green at the time he signed his card. Every is no stranger to fast starts as this goes in the books as his seventh career first round lead/co-lead, and third since the beginning of June. This is also a career-low round for Every, previously an 8-under 62 in R2 of the 2013 Greenbrier Classic. He entered the week 183rd in the FedExCup race but already has his TOUR card locked up for one more season thanks to his 2015 victory at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Webb Simpson styled a 7-under-par 35-28=63 during the opening round of the Wyndham Championship, giving him an early spot inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

The past champ (2011) opened his week on the back nine and setup seven scoring chances from inside nine feet on his outward nine. He missed a pair of birdie chances from inside six feet but it's hard to complain with five birdies and an eagle on the opening nine holes. The rain-soaked course was providing golfers target practice today and the Wake Forest produce took full advantage. Simpson would slow his pace on the homeward nine but this is still a great opening effort. Playing at the site of his first TOUR win and the event in which he named his third child after, Simpson is squarely in his comfort zone as he attempts to pick up his sixth top 15 at Sedgefield Country Club.

Cameron Smith torched Sedgefield Country Club to the tune of a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 to vault his name up the leaderboard early in round one of the Wyndham Championship, good for the early clubhouse lead.

The young Aussie is making his third appearance at this event, arriving with red numbers in 5-of-6 rounds at Sedgefield CC. He took it up a notch today as he fired his career-low round on Thursday. Ball-striking was the name of the game as he peppered all 18 greens in regulation. He entered the week ranked 165th in GIR percentage, so he likely benefitted from the soft and receptive greens this morning. Smith took some time off in June and July and has missed three cuts since returning from that little vacation. He broke out of that mini-slump in a big way today, and could be eyeing his first (individual) TOUR title if this ball-striking continues for three more rounds.

Defending champion Anthony Wall progressed to the second round of the Paul Lawrie Match Play after emerging 1-up winner in a ding-dong battle with Sam Walker on Thursday.

The two Englishmen engaged in an entertaining battle that began with the realisation that they were both wearing exactly the same shirt, but thereafter the action was serious. Walker’s birdie-2 won the second, Wall’s birdie-4 at the next drew them level. Walker ceded 5 and 6 to pars then No. 8 to Wall’s birdie-4, but bounced back with back-to-back par breakers at 9 and 10 to be 1-down with 8 to play. A birdie-4 at 12 doubled Wall’s lead but he lost it completely with his bogey at 16 coming straight after Walker’s unanswered birdie-3 at 15. On the final hole Wall applied pressure with birdie and Walker couldn’t match it. The reigning champion is now on a run of seven wins. He faces Haydn Porteous in the next round.

New Zealander Daniel Pearce dropped two late shots, but his 6-under-par 33-33=66 was still good for a one shot first round lead over Ben Campbell and Daniel Valente in the Fiji International at Natadola Bay GC.

It's been quite a year for the 28-year-old Kiwi, who became a father for the first time in Feburary and five weeks later claimed a first overseass title, the Queensland PGA Championship on the Australasian Tour. It is through that circuit that he gets a start in this European Tour co-sanctioned event and he is making the most of the opportunity. Starting on the back nine he raced into a dominant position, making birdie at 10, 11 and 17 before the turn, then opening the front nine with a run of one eagle and three birdies. Dropped shots at 6 and 8 couldn't stop him setting the early pace. This is rare territory for Pearce who plies his trade mostly at home and on the PGA China Tour. In fact it is only his second ET start after last year's MC in this event (76-74).

Brian Davis preps for his first PGA TOUR start in over a year as he turns his attention to Sedgefield Country Club at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Englishman was last seen on the PGA TOUR in June of 2016 with results that went MC-WD-WD-MC before shutting it down for neck and back pains. He's made five rehab starts on the Web.com Tour over the last 10 weeks and is now going to try his hand on the big stage. Davis has five starts on a medical extension, needing $690,010 to fulfill the terms necessary to return to the Web.com graduate reshuffle category. The 43-year-old has never finished better than T27 at this event (8 starts) and posted nothing better than a T48 in his recent rehab starts. Gamers can safely take the wait-and-see approach with this one.

Brandt Snedeker has announced his intentions to put away the sticks indefinitely due to a sternum joint (rib) injury that just isn't healing.

Snedeker has posted a trail of WDs recently due to the rib injury that flared up just before The Open. There was hope that more than a month of rest would help him gear up for a run in the FedExCup Playoffs. Instead, Snedeker provided an update via Twitter saying, "I have not progressed in my rehab like we would have hoped and therefore will be shutting it down for an indefinite period of time." This is a very serious issue considering the announcement he made back in 2013 about his ribs having low bone turnover, forcing him to take medication for the problem. Season-long gamers can cut ties with the Vandy product and wish him a speedy recovery (hopefully in early 2018).

Anthony Wall ended a 16-year drought to win last year's Paul Lawrie Match Play in Scotland but he'll put his title on the line on German soil this week as the tournament switches to Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Bavaria.

Wall beat Alex Noren in last year's final to secure his first European Tour win since 2000 and will start his bid to win it once more against another Swede after being drawn with Kristoffer Broberg in Thursday's first round (08:40 local). The veteran Englishman, seeded 9th, has played this week's venue but doesn't have the same positive memories having missed the cut on the Beckenbauer Course at Bad Griesbach two years ago. Better news is to be found in Wall's recent form. After a poor run of results, he posted T31 in the BMW International Open on his last trip to Germany, improved to T20 in the Irish Open and, on his latest start, banked T4 in the Scottish Open to register his first top 10 since winning last year's Paul Lawrie.

Richie Ramsay is the man to chase in this week’s Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Bavaria.

The bookmakers favorite this week, the Scot has plenty to back up those claims. First up he has a strong 5-2 record in the tournament. Moreover he has twice been defeated by players who went on to make the last four (his only other pro experience in head to head golf was a first round defeat to Louis Oosthuizen in the 2013 WGC World Match Play, but he was the 2006 U.S. Amateur champion). Add in his form and the picture is complete. He was a superb T2 in the Irish Open before contending both the Scottish Open and Open Championship and then recorded T8 in the European Open, coincidentally also in Germany. The only downside is his course experience which stretches to no more than one round (a 74 before a DQ last year). He plays Tom Lewis in round one.

Wake Forest alum Webb Simpson takes his talents back home to Greensboro, North Carolina, for a ninth appearance at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Charlotte resident used to come to this event as a teenager and played his college golf at nearby Wake Forest. The event already meant a lot to him for those two reasons but it got elevated to another level when he made Sedgefield Country Club the site of his first win (2011 Wyndham Championship). The tournament means so much to him that he named his third child after the event. Since the win he's rattled off four top 25s in five return trips. More recently, Simpson has collected five straight top 40s to move into the 37th slot in the FedExCup standings. A good mix of course history and current form makes Simpson a strong play in all fantasy formats.

Y.E. Yang twirled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 35-30=65 during the Monday qualifier into the Wyndham Championship, earning top honors ahead of other qualifiers: Jason Widener (-5), Brad Miller (-4), and Ted Purdy (-4).

Yang missed the cut at last week's PGA Championship with rounds of 76-79=155 (+13). The PGA TOUR veteran shook off the disappointment and torched the course today. This will be his ninth start of the season, third time getting into the field via open qualifying (The Greenbrier Classic, Byron Nelson). Along with Yang, Jason Widener will be an interesting name to watch this week. Widener is a 46-year-old Greensboro native who is now a teaching pro. Third is Brad Miller, will be making just his second career PGA TOUR start. The first came back in 2015 at this same event, he went on to miss the cut that year). Finally, Ted Purdy was the last qualifier, and he will be making his 284th career start this week. He hasn't earned a top 25 on the PGA TOUR since the 2010 AT&T National.
