Richard Sterne will have surgery to repair a torn labrum in his hip following the Nedbank Golf Challenge on Dec. 5-8, according to Alex Miceli at Golfweek.com.

"I can't continue hitting in pain," Sterne said during the Turkish Airlines Open where he placed T36. "Today it was OK actually, but there are some days that it's bad. It's always there. It's just not something that comes and goes. Unfortunately with some things like that, it is, I've waited two years. Three months is nothing." That last sentence refers to the amount of time he's expecting to miss as a result of the surgery. He's already exempt into The Open Championship and WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Currently 50th in the Official World Golf Ranking, if he's inside the top 50 at the end of the year, he'll be exempt into the Masters. But all things considered, it's the best time of the golf calendar to sit out for an extended period of time. First up, however, is this week's DP World Tour Championship for which he enters ranked eighth in the Race to Dubai.

Prior to the start of the event, Willy Wilcox has removed himself from the field at this week's Farmers Insurance Open. Max Homa has taken his spot in the field.

Wilcox is being cautious on his return to the PGA TOUR. The DFS darling has conditional status secured for the 2016-17 season but he has just three starts on a Minor Medical, needing 55 FedExCup points or $41,049 to keep his card. Wilcox shut it down early last season due to a wrist injury. Since having that surgery, he's played just one competitive event, a rehab start on the Web.com Tour where he got DQ'd for using a bent putter. On Twitter he responded to a fan by saying, "yeeea i dont wanna start on the hardest course on west coast when scottsdale, pebble, and LA r jus so ripe for the takin." For gamers that means we should expect to see Wilcox back in action next week when the TOUR heads to TPC Scottsdale.

Brandt Snedeker won the battle with Mother Nature en route to victory at the 2016 Farmers Insurance Open, and he makes his way back this week for another crack at Torrey Pines.

Snedeker started six strokes off the pace in last year's finale before posting what many consider the round of the year. On a day where the field averaged 77.9 due to extreme winds, the Vandy product twirled a one-bogey, 3-under 69. That vaulted him into sole possession of the lead as play finished up on Monday. It was his second victory at Torrey Pines (2012) and sixth career top 10 here, in 10 trips. Snedeker is quite the course horse and gamers should not let that be overlooked when setting lineups this week.

Fresh off the birth of his daughter, Kevin Chappell hauls his new set to clubs to Torrey Pines for this week's Farmers Insurance Open.

Chappell became a father for the first time in April of 2015, so this won't be a completely foreign experience for him, but still exciting news. His daughter Collins was born on January 19th, so the excitement will be fresh this week. The UCLA product also totes some new clubs this week. He is one of the many Nike staffers who now has the luxury of exploring new clubs in 2017. To open the season, Chappell shared his new set on Instagram: going with TaylorMade woods and driver, Mizuno irons, PXG wedges, Scotty Cameron putter, and a ProV1x ball. Despite the California connection, Chappell has never fared well at Torrey Pines (2-for-5 with T47 as his best). Gamers should let him knock the rust off this week before re-investing for what should be another stellar season.

2016 four-time winner Alex Noren will look to build on a solid start to the season in Abu Dhabi when he tees it up in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC.

The Swede is not just coming off four wins in 2016, he's actually a five-time winner in his last 29 starts, a run that began in mid-June 2015 and included four months lost to injury. It's a stunning period and what happens this year will be revealing as two paths suggest themselves. One is that, like Robert Karlsson, he remains a European Tour star; the other that, like Henrik Stenson, he graduates to world class, contending for the majors. In the short term put a tick against his seasonal opener last week in Abu Dhabi; the T13 was his first top 30 there in seven visits. Moreover he possesses a much better record in Doha, with four top 25s include T4 in 2013 and solo ninth in 2015. The ball-striking was excellent last week, if he putts well he can contend again.

Beau Hossler heads to Torrey Pines for this week's Farmers Insurance Open, his first PGA TOUR start since joining the professional ranks.

The University of Texas standout ended his college career on a sour note when a torn labrum forced him out of the championship match against Oregon. He needed shoulder surgery but announced his intentions to turn pro, anyways. In an attempt to play his way back into competitive form, he pegged it on the Adams Pro Tour in December. In his first start he finished T22 in a one-round shootout but a few days later he won a two-day event (Cypresswood Open - Cypress Course) with an aggregate score of 11-under 133, winning by three strokes. He cracked the field this week with a sponsor's invite. It will be his fifth career start on the PGA TOUR, missing just one cut previously, with a T29 at the 2012 U.S. Open being the highlight. Despite his limited TOUR knowledge, he will know a bit about this week's venue. Hossler won the 2011 Junior World Championships (Boys Division Age 15-17) played at Torrey Pines South Course.

Can Martin Kaymer rediscover the winning touch at this week's Commercial Bank Qatar Masters hosted by Doha GC?

He's currently one of the greatest enigmas on the European Tour, whose dilemma was beautifully illustrated last Sunday. He finished T4 in Abu Dhabi, but having held the lead after 8 holes of the final round he hit reverse. It may not have been quite as spectacular as his final round collapse on that course in 2015, but it made one wonder how deep the scars are for a man who hasn't won since that meltdown. That said he looked genuinely excited to witness firsthand Tommy Fleetwood overcome his own winless streak and might be inspired. He is 6-for-7 on the course, with T9 finishes in both 2012 and 2013, but he hasn't been back since 2014.

Overnight leader and World No. 196 Adam Hadwin backed up with a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge for a 72-hole total of 19-under 269, down one spot to solo 2nd, one shy of champion Hudson Swafford, who shot 67.

The Canadian was chasing his first TOUR title in his 73rd career start, but settles for a career-best runner-up, eclipsing T4 at the 2011 RBC Canadian Open (as a non-member). It's also his best finish at the CBC in three tries, supplanting T6 last year. After opening in 71-69-59, the 29-year-old led by one over rookie Dominic Bozzelli and two clear of four players, including Swafford, who completed the final threesome. Protecting his first career 54-hole lead/co-lead, he dipped into a three-way tie at the turn, exchanging bogey-4 at four with birdie-4 at five. Hadwin circled the par-5 11th to move one clear, but missed birdie at 12 from 8'4" before squaring bogey-4 at 13. He birdied 16 and 17, the latter from 25'11", but needed birdie on 18 to tie Swafford and scrambled to a one-putt par (from 11'4") for the final margin.

World No. 204 Hudson Swafford, a pre-tourney 50/1 outright, styled a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 20-under 268, good for a 1-shot win over 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin and his first PGA TOUR title in his 93rd career start (92 pro).

This was the Florida native's fourth visit with a previous-best T25 on debut in 2014. It was his sixth start of the season and first top 10, arriving off T13 at the Sony where he was T3 thru 54 holes but closed in 1-over 71. After opening in twin 65s, the 29-year-old led by one thru 36 holes, his first career 36-hole lead/co-lead. After a third-round 71 (Stadium Course), he once again began the finale in a three-way T3, two shy of Hadwin. Playing out of the final threesome, he found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.815 strokes tee-to-green. The Georgia Bulldog alum, whose previous best on TOUR was T8 (x2), bogeyed the first, 3-putting from 41'7", but played his final 17 holes in blemish-free 6-under. Two times he circled three straight birdies, at Nos. 7-9, and again at 15-17, including a tap-in at the par-3 17th after stiffing his approach to 17 inches.

Making his 100th career TOUR start (99 pro), World No. 323 Bud Cauley rode a hole-out eagle-2 to a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 18-under 270, good for a two-way T3, two back of champion Hudson Swafford and matching his career-best finish.

This was the 26-year-old's fifth appearance with a previous-best T14 last year. After opening the season with a T50 in Napa, he arrived off four straight missed cuts. The Alabama product began R4 in a four-way T3 on 15-under, two adrift of 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin. He circled two birdies and a hole-out eagle-3 at 11 (from 103 yards out) to jump into a four-way tie for the lead on 17-under, but managed just one more birdie-3 at 14 over his last seven holes. Cauley's lone bogey came at the par-4 ninth, just his second bogey in his final 54 holes. This is his third, third-place finish on TOUR, first since solo 3rd at the 2012 Wyndham.

Tommy Fleetwood confirmed victory in the 2017 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship with a sensational approach to the 72nd hole; his 17-under-par 271 left him one shot clear of Dustin Johnson and Pablo Larrazabal after he carded a final round 5-under 36-31=67.

The Englishman claimed his second European Tour win on his 162nd start, coming after an ever-improving run since early August which has seen him go 13-for-13 with ten top 25 finishes; the trophy tops it all very nicely. On the front nine the result had looked unlikely, however, as he made a bogey at the 3rd and waited until the 8th to get it back. But he made a superb move early in the back nine, chipping in for eagle-3 at the 10th and draining another par breaker from 8'0" at 11. That sent him to the top of the leaderboard. He pressed home with a 6'0" birdie at 16 and, after pulling his drive at the last, he blasted that magnificent 3-wood from the first cut onto the green and two-putted for birdie. It was a classy win, during which his long-term quality ball-striking was finally backed up with solid putting; it also confounded his previous form at the Abu Dhabi GC, where he was 1-for-5. "Didn't see it coming here," he laughed afterwards.
Jan 22 - 7:44 AM

World No. 85 Jamie Lovemark, a pre-tourney 28/1 outright, ballooned to a 5-over-par 36-41=77 in today's third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge and at 3-over 219, missed the scheduled 54-hole cut by eight shots.

A total of 77 players from a field of 156 pros made the cut on 5-under 211. Lovemark was a popular play this week, entering off back-to-back top-10 finishes, including a T4 last week on Oahu, and was T6 here last year. The 28-year-old, two days shy of his birthday (Jan. 23rd), posted rounds of 72-70 and carded three birdies against three bogeys, a double bogey-5 and a triple bogey-6 in the third round. Other notable early exits include: 212- Harold Varner III; Graham DeLaet ... 213- Zach Johnson ... 215- Ryan Palmer; Russell Henley; Emiliano Grillo; Brandon Stone; William McGirt ... 216- Kevin Streelman ... 217- Charley Hoffman ... 218- Cameron Smith ... 221- John Huh.
