Brandt Snedeker has elected not to compete in the Northwestern Mutual World Challenge on Dec. 5-8.

His decision to sit it out comes two weeks after he injured his left leg while stepping off a Segway in China. Snedeker is ninth in the Official World Golf Ranking, so his schedule is golden for the 2013-14 season. He's eligible for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Jan. 3-6.

With a perfect roll for a birdie at the 72nd hole of the Emirates Australian Open, Rory McIlroy clipped Adam Scott by one stroke.

Scott wasn't just gunning for the outright wire-to-wire title at Royal Sydney Golf Club, he was chasing history after winning the first two legs of the PGA Tour of Australasia's Triple Crown. Instead, lackluster putting and a closing 1-under-par 35-36=71 swung the door open for the Ulsterman who has been in dire need of some success before turning the page on 2013. Playing in the final pairing with the Aussie, McIlroy blazed home in a bogey-free, 6-under 32-34=66 with an eagle and four birdies. It was good for the field co-low in the finale. He posted 18-under 270. Scott's approach to the final green sailed long before McIlroy tucked his to about 15 feet. Scott's chip on ran to the front of the green from where he'd settle for a lag two-putt for par. It forced McIlroy to sink the dagger for his first victory since the DP World Tour Championship just over 12 months ago.

Brandt Snedeker has withdrawn from the Franklin Templeton Shootout.

The annual clambake in Naples, Fla., will be celebrating its 25th anniversary in two weeks, but Snedeker will continue to rest his left leg for official tournament competition the first week of January. "I have been pain free for the last five or so days," he said. "However, based on advice from my doctor, I feel it would be best to not push a return so that I will be at full strength and ready for the Hyundai Tournament of Champions [on Jan. 3-6]. The Franklin Templeton Shootout is such a fun event and I regret not being there this year." Sneds was replaced by Harris English in the 24-man field. Twelve teams of two compete in the three-day variety show.

Kevin Streelman withdrew during his second round of the Emirates Australian Open due to a scratched cornea in his left eye.

Streelman played four holes and walked off. He was 2-over-par on the round and even through 22 holes. "Yeah I woke up this morning and something wasn’t right in my eye," he said. "The doctor said it was pretty badly infected. I’ve been trying to do some drops but I started getting dizzy and it’s the first time I’ve ever [withdrawn] at a tournament. I’m really sad to do it but I’m going to head hospital and make sure everything’s okay." If he's able, the next stop on his globetrot is next week's Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa. He played in Malaysia, China and at the World Cup of Golf in Australia last week. His wife Courtney is scheduled to deliver the couple's first child very soon, but Kevin's whirlwind trip was planned long ago.

Ángel Cabrera is listed in the published field of next week's 108° VISA Open de Argentina where he is the defending champion.

On Nov. 26, he wrote the following on his Facebook page: "Next week I will be playing at the 108° VISA Open de Argentina presented by Peugeot, NEC Series - PGA TOUR Latinoamérica. Thanks for your support!" He cruised to a four-stroke victory in this event last year, the season finale on the development circuit. Cabrera withdrew early from the OHL Classic at Mayakoba due to discomfort in his left shoulder, something he acknowledged is connected to an old injury.

In his first career start in a non-major on the European Tour, Brendon de Jonge opened the Alfred Dunhill Championship with a 1-over-par 38-35=73.

The Zimbabwean erased four birdies with three bogeys and a double at Leopard Creek Country Club in Malelane, South Africa, but the bigger news is that he's accepted Affiliate Membership on the European Tour, thus making himself eligible for the Race to Dubai. "I’m going to try and play a bit more globally," he said. "I think it rounds off your game." Because he advanced to the TOUR Championship, de Jonge is already eligible for the first three majors and the WGC-Cadillac Championship. His participation in the Presidents Cup exempt him into the WGC-Bridgestone, so it's just a matter of filling in the gaps elsewhere. "The kind of golf is so different to what we’re used to playing in America. Everything’s in the air in America, whereas on the European Tour the conditions can get windy and firm. It’s a different kind of golf and very refreshing." It's fair to assume that his total starts in the U.S. will take a hit, but his fantasy value shouldn't.

Arron Oberholser tied for 28th place at last week's Callaway Pebble Beach Invitational and acknowledged that he'll keep playing golf in spots.

Forty-two golfers survived the 54-hole cut. Kevin Kisner won by one over Chesson Hadley, 275-276. Oberholser completed the 72-hole event at 68-72-71-75=286. Afterwards, he didn't shut the door on playing golf, but we may not see him on the PGA TOUR soon, if ever again. "It takes me four Advils a day to play in this," he said. "It's not a way to live or play golf at this level. These guys are too good. I can't manage my schedule enough to not feel pain." He still has status via a Major Medical Extension allowing 10 starts to earn $349,854, but that's a mere fact, not a carrot he's chasing. "I don't intend on using [the starts via the MME], but I am not retiring. I'm keeping my options open." Retirement in golf occurs in degrees, so even if he's done as a touring pro, he can still pocket some coin in one-off events and corporate functions. Needless to say, his fantasy value is nil.

Adam Scott reignited the afterburners in his opening round of the Emirates Australian Open after which he signed for a bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

After winning the first two legs of the PGA TOUR of Australasia's Triple Crown, Scott sent the message early and often today that he's still the man to beat despite last week's sidestep at the World Cup of Golf. Starting on the 10th hole at Royal Sydney Golf Club, he ripped off six consecutive birdies. After eight straight pars, he ran the table the rest of the way, circling another four birdies. At the time he walked off -- with the course record, thank you -- no one else was within four strokes, including those that have already completed the lid-lifter.

Morten Ørum Madsen spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of last week's South African Open en route to a two-stroke victory, his first on the European Tour.

The 25-year-old Euro Tour sophomore from Denmark started the finale one stroke off defending champion Charl Schwartzel's overnight lead. Madsen then circled five birdies and scrambled twice for par while Schwartzel nearly erased all of six birdies with a pair of 6s, one for a double bogey, the other for a triple. Madsen posted 19-under 269 for the title in just his 28th career start on the circuit. "I couldn’t have asked for a better start to the 2014 Race to Dubai," he said. "I hoped to come here to South Africa to build a solid foundation to take into the new year. But to start with a win – I couldn’t have wished for more. It’s onwards and upwards now." South Africans Jbe' Kruger and Hennie Otto shared runner-up honors.

Luke Donald successfully defended his title at the Dunlop Phoenix on the Japan Golf Tour.

The Englishman opened with a 2-over-par 73 during which he went 0-for-11 in par-breaker opportunities. He'd settle in with ensuing rounds of 66, 65 and 66 to post 14-under 270 at Phoenix Country Club in Miyazaki, six clear of runner-up Hyung-sung Kim. Other notables competed in the tournament, including Gonzalo Fernández-Castaño (T4), Hideki Matsuyama (T6), Billy Horschel (T14), J.B. Holmes (T31), Charlie Beljan (T36), Tommy Fleetwood (T36) and Keegan Bradley (T41). Thanks to the win, Donald is now exempt into the 2014 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

With a 1-under-par 33-37=70 in the final round of the World Cup of Golf, Jason Day posted 10-under 274, good for a two-stroke victory over Thomas Björn.

Day's week began with the loss of eight family members to Typhoon Haiyan, but he remained committed to this biennial event. It was contested at The Royal Melbourne Golf Club for just the fourth time in the event's history. He converted an eagle at the par-4 sixth hole today and added three birdies to offset two bogeys and a double. Björn shared the 18-hole lead with Kevin Streelman before standing alone atop the leaderboard at the midpoint at 8-under 134. The Dane then carded an even-par 71 on Saturday. That opened the door for Day, who turned in a field-tying-low in the third round to assume the lead entering today's finale by one. Björn closed with a 71. Day's partnership with Adam Scott resulted in a 10-stroke triumph for Australia in the team competition. The duo's 17-under 551 was 10 better than Matt Kuchar and Kevin Streelman of the United States. Denmark's Björn and Thorbjørn Olesen shared third with Ryo Ishikawa and Hideto Tanihara of Japan at 5-under 563.

J.B. Holmes opened the Dunlop Phoenix with an 8-over-par 39-40=79.

This is Holmes' first official competition anywhere since missing the cut at The Honda Classic. It was soon thereafter when he fractured his left ankle while rollerblading. While he managed only one birdie at Phoenix Country Club in Miyazaki, Japan, today, we're treated to a free peek at his form before the PGA TOUR resumes its schedule in January. Whenever he returns, he'll have 19 starts on a Major Medical Extension to earn $580,299 or 352 FedExCup points and retain status.
