Justin Rose is not listed in the published field of next week's Hyundai Tournament of Champions.

The Englishman has qualified for the event in each of the last four years, but has made just one appearance, finishing T12 in 2011. He's expected to return to action in Abu Dhabi on Jan. 16-19; it's where he began his 2013 season globally. However, hold your breath on a fourth consecutive start at the WGC-Accenture Match Play Championship on Feb. 19-23. Earlier this month, Rose alluded to the possibility of resting in lieu of a run as the fickle tournament in Tucson. "I’m thinking about having a month off around the February time," he told The Telegraph. "It’s been such a busy year and I think I probably need to recharge the batteries around then." He's on the inside track for a spot on the European Ryder Cup squad in 2014, but that carrot could entice him to pick up an event here or there to solidify his placement on the team.

Playing alternate shot on day one of the Zurich Classic, Kyle Stanley and Ryan Ruffels blitzed TPC Louisiana with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to claim the early title of clubhouse leaders.

This duo opened their week on the 10th tee and rattled off four straight birdies to start the day. They settled for a 13'5" par saver at the par-3 14th, but added four more circles on the homeward nine. This team arrived with lofty expectations, tee-to-green, but their flat sticks would be the wildcard. They showed up in a big way today, converting six putts from outside eight feet on the day (three apiece). Ball-striking was still the main asset as they gave themselves 13 birdie looks from inside 25 feet today. Playing without any TOUR status, the 19-year-old Ruffels would love to maintain this momentum all week, while Stanley is still searching for his second career TOUR win, failing to reach the winner's circle since the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Perhaps two extra set of eyes will help him on the greens this week.

Playing foursomes on day one of the Zurich Classic, K.J. Choi and Charlie Wi coasted to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to stake their claim as early clubhouse leaders with play still in progress. UPDATE: Kyle Stanley & Ryan Ruffels would later post a 6-under 66 to surpass Choi & Wi.

The South Korean tandem opened their week on the 10th tee and rattled off five pars and a bogey before rounding into gear. From there, they pieced together a four-hole birdie train that went through the turn and included three putts converted from outside 18 feet, two of them knocked in by Choi. Putting was the story of the day for this duo who walked off the course with seven putts splashed in from outside nine feet, six of those from outside 13 feet. Arriving without much form this week, they are leaning on course knowledge as they both have a podium finish to their credit at TPC Louisiana in 15 previous combined trips to the Pete Dye design.

China specialist Alexander Levy thrashed a nine-under-par 33-30=63 to set the clubhouse target early in round one of the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC.

The Frenchman was a winner of the China Open in 2014 and in total has five top ten finished in 11 visits to the country. Just last week a round one 74 in the Shenzhen International couldn't stop him finishing T8 as he added 68-64-69; with a smart start this week he might easily add a second China Open title. Opening on the back nine he ticked 13, 15 and 17 before blitzing the front nine. He splashed red across 2, 3, 4 and 5 then closed out with back-to-back birdies at 8 and 9. It is the third time he has carded 63 in China, but his career-low in the country remains the 62 he made in round two of his win in 2014. He lunched holding a one shot lead over Spain's Pablo Larrazabal who was three ahead of Peter Hanson and Jame Morrison in third. No less than 19 players carded 3-under or better on a day of low scoring.

World No. 6 Henrik Stenson makes his tourney debut at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and is teamed with 2015 champ and World No. 8 Justin Rose.

The power-packed couple checks in as the pre-tourney faves outright (11/2) but heading in polar opposite directions. The Swede arrives 72nd in FedExCup points with two top 10s in six starts, but off three straight missed cuts -- the first time that's happened to him since 2011 -- most recently by two at the Masters (77-75). Rose arrives 9th in FEC points with four top 10s in eight starts, all doubling as top 5s, including solo second at the Sony and P2 at the Masters. Both are 4-timer Ryder Cuppers, major champions, went 1-2 at the 2016 Rio Games, and are multiple participants on various National Teams. Rose is 8-for-11 in NOLA with four top 10s, highlighted by the win in 2015 (as 54-hole co-leader), his most recent of seven TOUR titles. Stenson is a 5-time TOUR winner, most recently at the 2016 Open Championship.

Bernd Wiesberger will be looking to complete a Chinese double when he tees it up in the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC this week.

Prior to last week Wiesberger’s record in China was incredibly consistent, but the big week was lacking. He’d made 11 starts, always played the weekend, but never actually found the top ten. He made up for that with victory in the Shenzhen International. You could argue that logbook is much like his career and it was definitely like his last 10 starts: all cuts made, eight finishes of T7 or better, finally he got the win. If his finish of T28 on this course last year puts gamers off it maybe should not because he posted 65 and 69 to lie T2 after 36 holes. His weekend was obviously a bit off, but he can clearly play the track and his confidence must be sky high.

Chase Koepka readies for his first start on the PGA TOUR, playing alongside his brother at this week's Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

World No. 1460 is getting his first crack at the big stage thanks to an invite from his big brother, Brooks. The University of South Florida product won four times during his college days, and now spends most of his time overseas. Across stroke-play events on the European Tour and Challenge Tour, the younger Koepka is just 2-for-8 so it's been a slow start to his professional career. The pedigree is there and this brother tandem will know each other's games better than any other team in the field this week, making them a very intriguing team to watch. With official money, FedExCup Points, and winning exemptions up for grabs this week, this could be a career-changing week for the 23-year-old.

Hugely promising youngster Hao Tong Li will defend his Volvo China Open title at Topwin Golf & CC in Beijing this week.

The 21-year-old’s victory 12 months ago was far from being a surprise, after he had three times gone extremely close to bettering European Tour fields. On the first of those occasions he lost a play-off in the 2015 Shenzhen International, a week later he was tied for the 54-hole lead in this event before finishing T6 and then he closed out 2015 by heading into the final round of the WGC HSBC Champions tournament one back of the lead (he finished T7). Two back of the lead in this event last year with 18 holes to play he used the experience of the near misses to good effect, posting a 64 to prevail by three shots. He was T5 in the Maybank Championship but comes into the week off the back of two missed cuts; he posted 75-75 last week in Shenzhen but also missed the weekend there ahead of last year’s win.

World No. 432 Kevin Tway fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open for a four-day tally of 9-under 279, up one spot into a two-way T3, and a career best in his 44th career start.

The 28-year-old posted rounds of 70-68-72-69 to finish three adrift of overnight leader and champion Kevin Chappell. Not only is the T3 a career best, it's his first top-25 finish, brushing aside a T26 at the 2014 Travelers. The Oklahoma State product was making his second visit to TPC San Antonio after a missed cut by five in 2014 (74-78). The podium comes in his 12th start of the season, supplanting a previous-best T32 in his last start at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. The Web.com Tour grad began in a 7-way logjam on 6-under (T4), two back. He outpaced double bogey-6 at six and bogey-4 at 16 with six birdies on Nos. 1, 2, 4, 10, 15 and 17. Tway mustered eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.498 SG: Putting.

World No. 24 Brooks Koepka painted a week-tying-low 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the finale of the Valero Texas Open to reach 11-under 277, up 10 places to solo 2nd, one shy of overnight leader and champion Kevin Chappell, who shot 68 and birdied the 72nd hole to win.

Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, the 24-year-old put up a furious charge, his 65 being 8.158 strokes better than the field average. After opening in 68-74-70, he began T12 on 4-under, four back. The FSU product landed eight (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, the tourney leader in the latter at 75.00 percent (54/72). He also paced the field in SG: Tee-to-Green with a cumulative 13.482, 6.429 of that in R4. The Floridian sqaured a lone bogey-5 at nine (3-putt from 49'8"), camouflaged by eight birdies at Nos. 1, 2, 6-8, 11, 12 and 18, posting the clubhouse lead with a walk-off 4 from 3'1". His split featured five from greater than eight feet with a long of 39'1" at the par-4 seventh. This is Koepka's fourth runner-up in 74 career events, second this season in 11 starts (2nd, Shriners).
Apr 23 - 6:33 PM

Overnight leader and World No. 41 Kevin Chappell hung up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the Valero Texas Open to post 12-under 276, good for a 1-shot win over Brooks Koepka and his first PGA TOUR title in his 180th career start.

The 30-year-old's been runner-up six times, four times last year, including P2 at the season-ending TOUR Championship. He breaks through in his eighth visit to San Antonio, chasing T4 last year, with one of the aforementioned runner-ups coming here in 2011. The victory comes in Chappell's 13th start of the season and is a second top 10, arriving off T7 at the Masters two weeks ago. After kicking off in 69-68-71, he began one clear of Branden Grace and John Huh, who comprised the final threesome. The UCLA product striped 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.041 strokes approaching-the-green. He squared bogey-5s at five (3-putt from 25'7") and 15, camouflaged by six birdies at holes 2, 3, 7, 10, 14 and 18, all from inside of nine feet. The Californian came to the 18th needing birdie to win, and reached the par 5 in three, knocking home the winner from 8'2". This was his fourth career lead/co-lead after 54 holes and finally got over the finish line.
Apr 23 - 6:10 PM

Bernd Wiesberger held firm on a difficult final day to claim victory in the 2017 Shenzhen International on the first extra hole after his final round 1-under-par 35-36=71 left him tied with Tommy Fleetwood at the top of the leaderboard on 16-under 272 at Genzon GC.

The Austrian entered the final round with a three-shot advantage, but spent the last lap treading water whilst everyone behind him charged for the line. None was more impressive than Fleetwood, whose 9-under 63 vaulted him from T15 to a clubhouse lead Wiesberger was struggling to match after two birdies and one bogey on the front nine, but par everywhere else. The par-5 17th seemed to offer him hope of getting one clear of Fleetwood, but he found water from the tee and had to scramble a fine par from 100 yards. He then nearly found water from the tee of the first play-off hole (18), but a superb approach from a sidehill lie to 8'0" was converted for the win. It is his fourth win on his 201st start on the European Tour.
