In his first round of the 2013-14 season, Charl Schwartzel signed for a 2-under-par 33-36=69 following his opener of the Northern Trust Open.

He traded five birdies with three bogeys despite hitting only half of the greens in regulation. His most notable conversion was a fortunate one as he holed out from 25 yards away in the rough at the par-3 fourth. Schwartzel also poured in a par save from 11'7" at 6. That he's playing at all is a break, too, as it was revealed on Wednesday that he suffered a "busted vein" near the pinkie finger on his left hand. (For the entire 25-second bite on this by Golf Channel's Steve Burkowski, cue the video linked below to 3:35.) The South African sits just three strokes off the clubhouse lead at Riviera.

Jim Furyk has withdrawn from next week's Hero World Challenge due to a 'tweaked back," according to Mike Antolini of the Tiger Woods Foundation.

Patrick Reed replaced Furyk in the 18-man field. The 16-time PGA TOUR winner hasn't played anywhere since finishing last of four at the PGA Grand Slam of Golf in mid-October. He's opened each of the last three seasons at the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, so it's possible that we won't see him again until Feb. 12-15 when the next edition of that tournament is contested.

Stuart Appleby withdrew from the Emirates Australian Open due to a back injury.

The 43-year-old had already shifted out of a marquee threesome that included Rory McIlroy and Geoff Ogilvy before this latest decision. Appleby missed the cut at last week's BetEasy Masters. He had taken three weeks off following a T22 at The McGladrey Classic. If he's able, he'll give the Australian PGA Championship a go on Dec. 11-14.

With the DP World Tour Championship complete, Rory McIlroy officially won the 2014 Race to Dubai.

McIlroy clinched the season-long award following last week's Turkish Airlines Open, but needed to wait out the finale before putting his mitts on the hardware. Instead of coasting to the finish line, the 25-year-old shared second place at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai today, just two strokes off the pace of two-time defending champion Henrik Stenson. This is McIlroy's second R2D title in three seasons. "Winning it for the first time two years ago was a fantastic feeling," he said a week ago, "but I feel like I’m now a more complete player and my all-round game has moved to another level. I've put in a lot of hard work this season, with my game and my fitness, so it’s nice to get the rewards at the end of it." All told, the Ulsterman went 13-for-14 on the European Tour this season with four wins and a trio of runner-up finishes.

Fifteen golfers qualified for the 2015 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship when the final Race to Dubai ranking went official today.

The DP World Tour Championship marked the finale on the 2014 European Tour schedule. Golfers inside the top 20 not previously exempt into the no-cut perk at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course on March 5-8 earned berths. Ross Fisher of England finished 20th with 1,574,123 points, just 3,908 clear of 50-year-old Spaniard Miguel Angel Jiménez in 21st place. The Brit is one of 15 to gain entry into the WGC. The others: Henrik Stenson (2nd in R2D); Jamie Donaldson (4th); Victor Dubuisson (5th); Marcel Siem (7th); Brooks Koepka (8th); Alexander Levy (9th); Shane Lowry (10th); Joost Luiten (11th); Thomas Björn (12th); Ian Poulter (13th); Graeme McDowell (14th); Stephen Gallacher (16th); Louis Oosthuizen (17th); Mikko Ilonen (18th); Tommy Fleetwood (19th).

For finishing inside the top 30 in the final Race to Dubai standings, Romain Wattel has secured a berth into the 2015 Open Championship.

The unheralded Frenchman is just 23 years of age, but he's already four seasons into his European Tour career. Wattel tied for 36th at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai today, but he landed at 28th in the Race to Dubai thanks to eight top 10s and another six top 20s in a breakout 2014 devoid only of his breakthrough victory on the circuit. He's never teed it up in a PGA TOUR event. Those inside the top 30 in the season-ending R2D not previously eligible for the third major are now exempt. The following 14 will be joining Wattel at St. Andrews on July 16-19: Marcel Siem (7th in R2D); Brooks Koepka (8th); Alexander Levy (9th); Joost Luiten (11th); Mikko Ilonen (18th); Tommy Fleetwood (19th); Ross Fisher (20th); Miguel Angel Jiménez (21st); Thongchai Jaidee (22nd); George Coetzee (23rd); Danny Willett (25th); Marc Warren (26th); Pablo Larrazábal (29th); Jonas Blixt (30th).

Henrik Stenson closed out the DP World Tour Championship with a 2-under-par 34-36=70 to post 16-under 272, good for a two-stroke victory over Rory McIlroy, Justin Rose and Victor Dubuisson.

After sitting on the 36-hole lead alone, Stenson shared the 54-hole lead with Rafael Cabrera-Bello entering the final round of the 2014 European Tour season. On cue, Sunday at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai evolved into a mad scramble among the circuit's top talents, especially when the Swede squared a double bogey-6 at the 11th hole where he knocked his tee ball out of bounds. However, Stenson rallied for birdies at 17 and 18 to establish the final margin. "It feels great," he said. "I'm exhausted to say the least. It was hot out there and tricky on the back nine. I did not play my best and had a shocking hole on 11. ... That knocked me back but I did not give up. I just had to dig in there and wait for something to happen. I had a couple of close calls this year to get my win and it was not to be. It's been close but eventually you get something if you stick around and I surely did that." RCB settled for a 3-over 34-41=75 and joint ninth place.

With a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the BetEasy Masters, Nick Cullen recorded a one-stroke victory over a trio of runners-up, including two-time defending champion Adam Scott.

The lefty opened with a bogey-5 at the first hole at Metropolitan Golf Club in Melbourne today, but rallied with an eagle-3 at the No. 4. He added four birdies to help offset two bogeys the rest of the way and posted 9-under 279. Fellow Aussies Josh Younger and former PGA TOUR member James Nitties also shared second place. Cullen started the week slotted 632nd in the Official World Golf Ranking. Thanks to his breakthrough on the PGA Tour of Australasia, he'll vault to approximately 250th. In addition to the gold jacket, one of the perks he'll collect is a tee time at Firestone Country Club's South Course in the 2015 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Tiger Woods alerted his 4.13 million followers on Twitter today that he's hired Chris Como as his swing coach.

Woods wrote, "Happy to have Chris Como consulting and working with me on my swing. I’m excited to be back competing." The former world's No. 1-ranked golfer was introduced to Como by longtime pal Notah Begay III this summer. Como works out of Gleneagles Country Club in Plano, Texas. He follows Butch Harmon, Hank Haney and Sean Foley, respectively, as the primary set of eyes and intellect in which Woods will have faith. The future Hall of Famer is expected to return to competition at the Hero World Challenge on Dec. 4-7.

John Hahn authored a 12-under-par 28-30=58 on Tuesday in his fourth round of qualifying school on the European Tour.

Yes, he completed all 18 holes on the Tour Course at PGA Catalunya Resort in Girona, Spain. Hahn started on the 10th hole and promptly birdied his first five. He added birdies at 17, 18, 1, 2, 5, 7 and 9 for a total of 12 on the round. Lift, clean and place is in play throughout the six-round ordeal, so it won't be an official sub-60 in the European Tour annals. "You don’t go out in the morning thinking 58 is going to happen, but obviously you are excited when it does," he said. "Preferred lies are huge, without a doubt, as it saves you from driving in a divot, up by the green you can move it the length of a scorecard, so no – listen – if you play with the ball in the hand, it is a different thing." More importantly, at 8-under 276, he's T12 with 36 holes to play. Top 25 and ties will earn a card for 2015. "It was a fun day, a good day, but it is a long week and it has just got me back into contention, and we’ve got two more days."

In an update on Dustin Johnson at, Tim Rosaforte wrote that the eight-time PGA TOUR winner has circled the Farmers Insurance Open on Feb. 5-8 to return to competition.

DJ has been out since missing the cut at the RBC Canadian Open in late July. If he, indeed, pegs it at Torrey Pines, a full six months will have elapsed in between starts, so draw your own conclusion as it relates to the article on Aug. 1 about him being suspended for that exact length of time; you probably already have. But Johnson is also going to need to work around the birth of his first child. "He has some thoughts but nothing definitive," said David Winkle, DJ's manager. "It's all baby dependent. He's no different than anybody else with a child on the way." Assuming Johnson is back in early February, he'll have no trouble eclipsing 15 starts to fulfill the membership minimum. And while rust may be an issue early, the rest, voluntary or not, will have been invaluable.

Spencer Levin concluced the OHL Classic at Mayakoba with a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to post 3-under 281 and settle in a six-way tie for 56th place, just enough to earn the necessary FedExCup points to fulfill the terms of his Major Medical Extension.

Levin collected 12.50 FedExCup points. He entered the week with six starts remaining on the MME, but needing just 11.004 to get the job done. That required no worse than a solo 60th-place finish. He rose 13 places on the leaderboard to achieve his objective on the number today at El Camaleón Golf Club. So, the 30-year-old will now play out of the MME category for the remainder of the season. He'll enter the holiday break slotted 61st in the FedExCup standings.
