Taking advantage of his position in the first threesome off the first tee on the Eisenhower Course at Industry Hills Golf Club in City of Industry, Calif., on Monday morning, Jason Gore turned in a 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the open qualifier for the Northern Trust Open, good for medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

Gore opened birdie-birdie and added an eagle-3 at the eighth hole and four birdies to absorb a lone bogey at the par-3 15th hole. He survived the four-spotter for the Frys.com Open to begin the season, and then parlayed it into a T26. He hasn't competed anywhere since. Jason Allred took runner-up honors in the OQ. The former PGA TOUR member went off in the first group off the 10th tee and carded a 6-under 32-34=66 with an eagle, six birdies and two bogeys. He hasn't played in an event on the circuit since the 2010 U.S. Open. The final two tee times at Riviera on Thursday went to Aaron Goldberg (4-under 32-36=68; 6 birdies, 1 double bogey) and former PGA TOUR member Bubba Dickerson (4-under 33-35=68; 6 birdies, 2 bogeys). The duo outlasted Lee Janzen and Michael Letzig in a playoff. The field of the Northern Trust Open is now complete at 144.

Due to family issues Stewart Cink has announced a leave of absence from competitive golf for the foreseeable future.

Cink announced on Twitter that his wife, Lisa, has been diagnosed with breast cancer. He then added "In order to assist Lisa in meeting this challenge, I will be stepping away from competitive golf until circumstances improve for her. Hopefully that day will come quickly." It's horrible news but an easy decision to walk away from the game right now. This goes beyond any fantasy advice, and all we can do now is hope for the best for Cink and his family during this trying time.

Smylie Kaufman has withdrawn from this week's Wells Fargo Championship, citing a minor wrist injury as the culprit.

Kaufman took to Twitter to alert his fans and followers by saying "Bummed to have to WD. Been dealing with lingering tendinitis in wrist since Augusta. Rest and rehab. Hope to play Players next week." The LSU product is 11th in the FedExCup race so he can afford to take a week or two off to get rested up. With Kaufman using the word hope in regards to his status for next week, gamers should keep a close eye on the field when it's released come Friday. The benefit of this pre-tournament WD is D.H. Lee who gets the honor of replacing Kaufman. He'll make his third appearance at Quail Hollow Club (T16/2013;MC/2014).

Dustin Johnson will be taking a pass this week in Charlotte, North Carolina, and Kelly Kraft will take his place in the field at the Wells Fargo Championship.

DJ was set to make his first start here since 2011, but it appears he's changed his mind. There is no indication of an injury here, so keep Johnson on your radar for upcoming events. Kelly Kraft slides into the field in his place, and will be making his tournament debut. On the season Kraft is 6-for-11 on the season and ranks 182nd in the FedExCup race.

Jim Furyk will return from a wrist injury that has kept him sidelined since September, making his first stop at this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Furyk is building a roadmap to recovery and it starts with back-to-back events as he'll tee it up at THE PLAYERS next week, as well. Quail Hollow Club is a tough venue to make a comeback, as it stretches out past 7,500 yards and requires precision with the long irons. Furyk has won on this course, but he needed 8.74 strokes gained with the putter the week of his win. The PGA TOUR veteran has been very cautious with this injury but we can't rule out a bit of rust that comes from not playing tournament golf and not playing four consecutive days worth. The wait-and-see approach is a good one to take this week before a possible investment at THE PLAYERS.

Corey Nagy torched Gaston Country Club with an 8-under-par 31-32=63 to Monday Qualify for this week's Wells Fargo Championship. Joining him will be Blake Olson, Ethan Tracy, and Mackenzie Hughes, who all signed for 7-under 62s.

Nagy circled a pair of eagles, playing the trio of par 5s at 4-under-par on this 6,986 yard layout. He swallowed just one bogey but it was still good enough to punch his ticket. The UNC-Charlotte product posted a 3-for-4 record on the Web.com Tour last year but has yet to tee it up on the big stage. In fact Hughes is the only qualifier with any PGA TOUR experience (0-for-3, no starts since 2013). Hughes is also 4-for-7 on the Web.com Tour this year, but nothing better than a T30. Hughes sets up shop out of Raintree Country Club in Charlotte, so he will be very comfortable with the surroundings this week and may carry some local knowledge into the event.

Jamie Lovemark painted a bogey-free 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the three-day third (and final) round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to match 36-hole leader Brian Stuard and Byeong-Hun An with 54-hole aggregates of 15-under 201, and lost to Stuard on the second hole of sudden death.

This was Lovemark's third Zurich with missed cuts in 2012 and 2014, and entered the week off a MC in his last go at the Heritage. Playing his 16th event of the season and his 80th career start (72nd as a pro), he began the third round T2 on 11-under, one back of Stuard. The 28-year-old hit 13 greens in regulation, circling birdies on Nos. 7, 10, 11 and 13, but the one missed chance he'll loath came on the 72nd hole, 3-putting the par-5 18th (from distance) for par. On the first playing of the 18th in sudden death, he and Stuard advanced with pars while An exited with bogey-6. On the second playing, Lovemark airmailed the green with his second from the fairway and took two pitches to get on, one-putting for par while Stuard won with birdie-4 from short range. It's his second career runner-up (2009 Frys.com) where he also lost in a playoff.

Brian Stuard scribbled a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-34=69 during the closing round of the weather-shortened Zurich Classic, remaining blemish-free on the week at 15-under 201 as he heads into a three-man playoff with Byeong-Hun An and Jamie Lovemark. UPDATE: Stuard outlasted Jamie Lovemark and Byeong-Hun An in a three-man playoff, securing his first career PGA TOUR victory.

Stuard did not look sharp today but his scrambling remained perfect (20-for-20 on the week). In the third (and final round) specifically, he landed just 11 greens in regulation after missing five (of 14) fairways. His flat stick was not exactly cold today, he just didn't give himself many realistic par breaking opportunities. He did rope in a 27'7" birdie bomb at the par-5 second hole but that would be his only putt made from outside 7'6". UPDATE: Stuard traded pars with Jamie Lovemark on the first playoff hole and then stiffed his approach shot on the second playing of the par-5 18th to circle a birdie and secure his first PGA TOUR victory. Stuard was a flawless 46-for-46 from inside 10 feet this week. With this win, Stuard receives a two-year status exemption, entry into the 2017 Masters, and a vault up the FedExCup standings from 184th to 38th.

Byeong-Hun An torched TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the weather-shortened Zurich Classic, making him the first to sign a 15-under 201 with a chance to pick off his first career PGA TOUR victory. UPDATE: An made a mess of the first playoff hole and will have to settle for a co-runner-up finish and a top-10 exemption into next week's Wells Fargo Championship.

An put on a ball-striking clinic today, striping all 14 fairways and landing 15 greens in regulation. Only one of his putts made today came from outside 8'4". It was a 28'8" birdie bomb on the par-4 15th hole to close out a third-hole birdie train. An is in the clubhouse with the lead and will watch the rest of the field finish up their rounds. This was An's 20th career start on the PGA TOUR but just his first top 10 in a stroke-play event. The World No. 31 has done most of his damage on the European Tour but this finish will open up a lot of doors for the youngster who sets up shop in Florida and is attempting to secure his first PGA TOUR card.

Bobby Wyatt bombarded TPC Louisiana with an 8-under-par 30-34=64 during the final round of this week's Zurich Classic, staking his claim of the early clubhouse lead at 14-under 202.

The University of Alabama product did a majority of his damage yesterday before weather suspended play, with a bogey-free 6-under 30 on the front nine that included a 13'9" eagle splash on the par-5 second hole. His only blemishes during the final round came on the green surfaces, with back-to-back three jacks on the par-3 14th and par-4 15th holes. Wyatt bounced back with birdies in two of his last three holes to get into the clubhouse as the early leader. He walked off the course having gained 4.027 strokes tee-to-green during his third navigation of TPC Louisiana. Wyatt was slated to compete on the Mackenzie Tour this year but this strong finish will reward him some extra opportunities on the PGA TOUR, including an exemption into next week's Wells Fargo Championship. In eight career starts his previous best was a T63 at the 2014 John Deere Classic. Wyatt will now wait patiently in the clubhouse to see if his lead can hold up.

Bryce Molder fashioned a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the closing round of this week's Zurich Classic, posting an 11-under 205 in the weather-shortened event.

Molder took full advantage of preferred lies, striping 13 (of 14) fairways in route to 17 greens in regulation. On the week he missed just nine (of 42) fairways to walk off the course at T11 in the field for fairways hit. The flat stick is usually his weapon of choice, but he splashed in just two putts from outside five feet during the closing round. Molder posted missed cuts in his first five appearances at TPC Louisiana but improved with a T33 last year and now a likely top 10 with this 11-under aggregate. The Georgia Tech product squared just four bogeys on the week, and played the final 37 holes with a clean card.

Seamus Power spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the United Leasing Championship to come from behind and snag his first Web.com Tour title.

It seemed unlikely that Power's 12-under 276 would hold up, but back-to-back double bogeys on 17 and 18 by Roger Sloan dropped the Canuck from 14-under to 10-under clearing the way. Power's lap around Victoria National GC had no such drama, spreading five birdies and 13 pars across the scorecard. With this victory, the East Tennessee State product and Irish native moves to seventh on the Web.com Tour money list.
