Greg Chalmers enjoyed a 6-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Since opening the season with a pair of top 15s, the Aussie is 2-for-3 with no top 50s. Today's round could serve as a return to form as he landed 14 greens in regulation and absorbed a lone bogey at the par-3 16th hole. After rolling in a birdie from 13'6" to begin the show at the par-4 first, Chalmers buried his attempt from 73'8" at the sixth. Entering the day, he authored the longest conversion by anyone on the PGA TOUR this season, with a 74-footer at the sixth hole on Seaside during his second round of The McGladrey Classic. The lefty then added an eagle-2 at the 17th hole at TPC Scottsdale today; he drove to 6'10". He's one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Chez Reavie is listed in the published field of next week's Chiquita Classic.

The second leg of the Web.com Tour Finals will be contested at River Run Country Club in Davidson, North Carolina. Reavie hasn't played anywhere since missing the cut at the Shriners last October. He would have surgery on his left wrist on Jan. 14. He'll no doubt receive a Major Medical Extension for 2014-15 offering nearly a full season's allotment of starts, so it's good to know that he's ready to return and test the wrist. And who knows, a successful run in the Web.com Tour Finals would offer a safety net that might come in handy in case he fails to meet the terms of his medical.

Ryan Palmer smoothed an 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and will sleep on the outright lead.

And to think that he opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole where he swallowed an unplayable lie following his tee ball left of the fairway. Therefore, it was a highlight show. Palmer converted nine birdies despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation. Three of his par breakers stretched outside 12 feet, the longest measuring 23'1" at the par-4 fifth hole. His most challenging par save measured 10'4" at the par-3 third. He was perfect on 16 tries inside 16 feet. At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip read 5.073, good for tops in the field of 93. Palmer entered the week at 43rd in the FedExCup standings. He shared the 18-hole lead at the PGA Championship and sustained the form to finish T5.

Jason Day fashioned a bogey-free, 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

When he is feeling good, he is one of the most dangerous investments on the PGA TOUR. With last week's T2 at The Barclays, he's assured a place at the TOUR Championship, but at seventh in the FedExCup standings, he's still outside the preferred bubble of the top five. Today at TPC Boston, Day split nine (of 14) fairways, but hit only nine greens in regulation. As his scorecard illustrates, he got up and down every time and was perfect on 17 tries inside 18 feet, including a par save from 12'9" at the par-3 11th. His longest conversion of the round dropped for birdie at the par-3 eighth hole.

Tim Clark has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship due to an elbow injury.

He had to call it quits at the turn of his second round of The Barclays with the same problem. At 38th in the FedExCup standings, Clark will advance to next week's BMW Championship, but the more relevant concern for gamers is his health long-term. Needless to say, if he plays at Cherry Hills, let him go it alone.

Angela Barrett, wife of Lance Bennett, who caddies for Matt Kuchar, died on Wednesday morning in Texas.

In its report, Golfweek specified that Lance received word on Tuesday at TPC Boston that his wife had experienced a seizure.

Lance and Angela are parents to a four-year-old daughter, Emma. Matt Kuchar released his own statement: "(My wife) Sybi, the boys and I are sending our thoughts and prayers to Lance and Emma Grace during this devastating time.

Justin Rose has been removed from the published field of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

While unconfirmed, it's likely that Rose is taking the path of fellow likely Ryder Cupper Sergio Garcia, who's sitting this week out to recharge his batteries. Rose shared 30th place at The Barclays and fell two spots to 20th in the FedExCup standings.

Jason Dufner has been removed from the published field of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

That he appeared in the field in the first place was news. After falling 17 spots to 74th in the FedExCup standings, there's little reason to risk aggravating his injury (two bulging discs in his neck) for what might be only one week of action.

Tiger Woods announced on his website today that he has fired swing coach Sean Foley.

The statement in its entirety: "I'd like to thank Sean for his help as my coach and for his friendship. Sean is one of the outstanding coaches in golf today, and I know he will continue to be successful with the players working with him. With my next tournament not until my World Challenge event at Isleworth in Orlando, this is the right time to end our professional relationship. Presently, I do not have a coach, and there is no timetable for hiring one." Foley responded as follows: "My time spent with Tiger is one of the highlights of my career so far, and I am appreciative of the many experiences we shared together. It was a lifelong ambition of mine to teach the best player of all time in our sport. I am both grateful for the things we had the opportunity to learn from one another, as well as the enduring friendship we have built. I have nothing but respect and admiration for him."

Paul Casey is not included in the published field of this week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

He's one of four eligible for the second leg of the FedExCup Playoffs that isn't committed to the field reserved for 100 at TPC Boston. Dustin Johnson (sabbatical), Graeme McDowell (baby) and Sergio Garcia (rest) were known DNPs, and now Casey's ties off a loose end. In an interview at The Barclays, he said that he, like G-Mac, is also going to become a father soon. "The 14th of September [was the due date] but it's going to be early for various reasons," he said. The Brit entered the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 118th. With a T22 at Ridgewood, he rose to 85th, so he will not advance to next week's BMW Championship. For the time being, Casey is included in the published field at the Omega European Masters on Sept. 4-7.

With the conclusion of today's WinCo Foods Portland Open, the top 25 on the Web.com Tour money list have earned 2014-15 PGA TOUR cards.

Max Homa shared 60th place at Pumpkin Ridge today and finished comfortably at 17th in earnings thanks to a win and another two top 10s. Because he made eight starts on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14, he will not qualify as a rookie in his first year with a card. However, 13 of his fellow graduates are rookie eligible. The other 24 grads (* = 2014-15 PGA TOUR rookie): *Carlos Ortiz (1st); *Andrew Putnam (2nd); *Zack Sucher (3rd); *Adam Hadwin (4th); *Justin Thomas (5th); Alex Cejka (6th); *Blayne Barber (7th); *Tony Finau (8th); Jason Gore (9th); Steven Alker (10th); Andres Gonzales (11th); *Jon Curran (12th); Derek Fathauer (13th); Cameron Percy (14th); *Daniel Berger (15th); *Jonathan Randolph (16th); *Mark Hubbard (18th); Steve Wheatcroft (19th); Ryan Armour (20th); *Byron Smith (21st); Bill Lunde (22nd); Fabian Gomez (23rd); *Roger Sloan (24th); Kyle Reifers (25th). All but Ortiz (exempt from reshuffle) will compete in the Web.com Tour Finals for opening reshuffle position.

Carlos Ortiz held on for an even-par 35-36=71 in the final round of the WinCo Foods Portland Open and claimed his third Web.com Tour title of the season.

Ortiz traded three birdies for three bogeys on his final lap around Witch Hollow at Pumpkin Ridge to post 14-under 272. The irons were the key to his success, landing 14 GIR in the finale and ranking third for the week with 57. With this victory, Ortiz will avoid all reshuffles on the PGA TOUR via as a three-time winner and the leader of the final regular season money list. He is the 10th player in Web.com Tour history, and first since 2009 when Michael Sim completed the feat, to receive a battlefield promotion to the PGA TOUR. Of course, given that the season-ending Wyndham Championship was last week, the promotion is nothing more than an honorary badge for the record books.
