Webb Simpson completed 36 holes of the Valspar Championship in 5-over-par 72-75=147 and will miss the cut.

This is a surprise, especially since he hadn't fared worse than T17 (2013) in any of the previous four editions. This week, Simpson split 14 (of 26) fairways and hit 25 greens in regulation, but managed only six birdies and swallowed six bogeys and two doubles. He whiffed on eight tries inside seven feet. The short week extinguishes his consecutive cuts made streak at 19.

Prior to the start of the event, Alex Cejka has withdrawn from this week's Barclays, citing a pinched nerve as the reason.

The German has been battling injuries all year. He withdrew mid-event with a neck injury at the Waste Management Phoenix Open as well as the Shell Houston Open. Sandwiched in-between those, he also battled a hand injury ahead of his title defense at the Puerto Rico Open. After a T21 at the Olympic Golf Competition in Rio two weeks ago, he backed out of last week's Wyndham Championship prior to the start of the event. At 59th in the FedExCup standings, he will have a chance to tee it up at TPC Boston next week, if his health cooperates. Since we are in the Playoffs, he will not be replaced in the field, which now sits at 120 golfers instead of the 125 max.

Rory McIlroy arrives at Bethpage State Park ranked just 36th in the FedExCup standings as he preps for a run in the Playoffs, starting with this week's Barclays.

The Northern Irishman is 11-for-14 on the season, with just one podium finish, a T3 at the WGC-Cadillac Championship. That is a bit misleading, though, as he's finished 12th or better in 8-of-14 starts. This week he'll take on the Black Course at Bethpage State Park for the third time in competition. His debut came at the 2009 U.S. Open when he finished T10. Three years later he settled for a T24 at the 2012 Barclays. During that 2012 edition he ranked first in strokes gained tee-to-green, but dead-last of all 75 golfers that made the cut in terms of strokes gained putting, losing 7.267 strokes on the week. If he could have putted to field average that week he would have finished in second place at 8-under. The flat stick will be the big question mark this week, but he certainly sets up well tee-to-green for this 7,468-yard Tillinghast Design.

World No. 1 Jason Day hoisted the hardware at the 2015 Barclays played at Plainfield Country Club and makes his way to Bethpage State Park this week for a chance to defend his title.

The Aussie lapped the field last year, tying the tournament record of 19-under-par 261 (68-68-63-62). He cleared second place, Henrik Stenson, by six strokes. This year he'll head to the Black Course at Bethpage State Park for his second look at the venue. Back in 2012 when Bethpage last hosted, he finished T24. The Aussie posted three red numbers but got derailed by a disappointing 6-over 77 on Moving Day. The big hiccup that round came at the par-5 13th when he swallowed a triple-bogey 8. This time around he arrives ranked first in the FedExCup (and in the Official World Golf Rankings). The 28-year-old remains a top-tier selection anytime he tees it up.

J.J. Spaun crafted a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the final round of the News Sentinel Open to earn his first Web.com Tour victory at 26-under 258.

He finished one-stroke clear of Sam Ryder. Spaun had already clinched a 2016-17 PGA TOUR card, sitting fifth on the Web.com Tour money list, and he improves to third with the title. His lap around Fox Den Country Club featured six birdies to just one bogey. It was his lone bogey of the tournament. The irons were the key to his week, as he landed 65 of 72 GIR to rank first in the field.

Luke Donald fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the weather-delayed final round of the Wyndham Championship to wrap his fifth appearance on 16-under 264, up one spot to solo second, five in arrears to champion Si Woo Kim.

The 38-year-old's runner-up is his 15th in 308 career events (303 as a pro), and second this season, joining a T2 at the RBC Heritage, his ONLY other top 10 in 2015-16. He was chasing his sixth PGA TOUR title, first since the 2012 Transitions Championship. The Englishman began the final round in a three-way T3 on 13-under, five back of 54-hole leader Kim. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he mustered just six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, circling five birdies against two bogeys (failed scrambles). For the week, he was 74th (of 75) in SG: Off-the-Tee (-3.403), but was No. 1 in SG: Approach-the-Green with a dizzying 14.004. The Englishman connected four red numbers for the first time this season (20 starts), and first time since a previous-best T26 here LAST YEAR.

World No. 115 and overnight leader Si Woo Kim steadied a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in today's weather-delayed final round of the Wyndham Championship to match the tournament record of 21-under 259, and claim his first PGA TOUR title in his 38th career start.

The second-year man, a pre-tourney 100/1 outright, wins in his 30th start of the season, avenging a playoff loss five weeks ago at the opposite-field Barbasol, and matched the tournament mark set by Carl Pettersson (2008). He began the finale with a four-shot lead over playing competitor Rafa Cabrera Bello, his first 54-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR. The South Korean extended the lead to six at the turn with birdies on Nos. 1, 5, 8 and 9. He wobbled to bogeys on 10, 13 and 14, before a two-putt birdie-4 at 15 stopped the bleeding. Following a delay of 1 hour, 22 minutes, he returned to par the 17th and capped with a walk-off 3 from 13'6" at the par-4 18th. The 21-year-old's five-shot win over runner-up Luke Donald earns him among other things, an invite to the 2017 Masters, where he'll make his debut.

Billy Horschel stalled out to a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to conclude his fifth appearance on 14-under 266, down one spot to T7 with play suspended at 5:32 PM ET due to lightning in the area. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 7:00 PM.

The 29-year-old was bogey-free 3-under thru 15 holes but took some luster off with a bogey-birdie-bogey finish. Although he walked off with bogey-5 on a failed scramble, he was able to get his lap into the books before the horn sounded, stranding six players. The Florida native and resident began the final frame in a four-way T6 on 12-under, six shy of 54-hole leader Si Woo Kim. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, posting a -0.848 SG: Tee-to-Green but salvaged the round with 1.286 SG: Putting. This is Horschel's fourth top 10 of the season in limited starts (17), first since T4 at the Valero, and is projected to climb 12 spots to 75th in the FedExCup standings.

PGA TOUR rookie Brett Stegmaier authored a career-low bogey-free 6-under-par 31-33=64 in today's final round of the Wyndham Championship to conclude his tournament debut on 14-under 266, up 18 places on the live leaderboard to T7. UPDATE: With play completed, Stegmaier finished in a five-way T5.

The 33-year-old sets the early 72-hole clubhouse mark but the leader on the course, Si Woo Kim, is 20-under. After opening rounds of 66-67-69, he circled six birdies for a third straight lap en route to a career low in his 91st career round, supplanting 66 (x3). The Connecticut native began the finale on 8-under (T25) and landed nine (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, posting 1.765 putts per GIR. If the top 10 holds, it'll be his third of the season in 28 starts and is currently 103rd in the FedExCup standings, up 16 places. (Link to FEC Live Projected Standings below).

Kevin Kisner painted a 7-under-par 32-31=63 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to finish off his fourth appearance on 13-under 202, up 33 places to T8 and good for the low round in the clubhouse.

This is the 32-year-old's best at Sedgefield CC in 16 laps, eclipsing a second-round 64 on last visit in 2014 (T8). It also ties a career best (406 rounds) shot in the opener at the 2016 Sony Open. The South Carolinian could've went one better, but tree trouble off the tee at the par-4 18th led to a chip-out and eventually missed a par-saver from 9'7", his lone bogey. Earlier, he circled six birdies and an eagle at the par-5 15th (20'5") on 15 greens in regulation for 1.600 putts per GIR. At last check, Kisner gained 2.654 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.515 SG: Putting.

For a second consecutive year, Scott Brown aced the 163-yard par-3 third hole in the final round of the Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club.

The 33-year-old made a hole-in-one in last year's finale while paired with Tiger Woods in the penultimate twosome. Incidentally, that was Woods' most recent competitive round on the PGA TOUR. According to TOUR staff, Brown is just the second player in TOUR history to ace the same hole, same course in back-to-back years (Joe Ozaki, 1997-98, par-3 seventh hole at Bermuda Dunes). Brown also kicked off the 2015-16 campaign with the season's first hole-in-one at the CIMB Classic back in October. He's in the clubhouse on 9-under 271 (68-68-70-65) following a 5-under-par 32-33=65, up 28 spots to T29 with play still in progress.

Paul Peterson completed a stunning victory in the D+D REAL Czech Masters at Albatross Golf Resort with a final round 5-under-par 33-35-67 that left him 15-under 273 and one clear of the defending champion Thomas Pieters.

The 28-year-old American holed a superb 20-foot birdie putt on the final hole under the severest of pressures, knowing he almost certainly needed to convert the chance to complete the win. He'd entered the final round two shots adrift of playing partner and leader Pieters but made up the deficit by the second tee thanks to his own birdie and the Belgian's bogey on the par-five 1st. However he gave the edge back by squaring two as Pieters circled it. But Pieters parred the rest of the front nine as Peterson made three birdies. Heading into the final six holes they were locked together until the American left-hander made birdie on 16 from 3'0". He owed his win to some superb approach play, with four of his seven birdies coming from inside 4-feet, although that longer final one – when Pieters was more or less guaranteed to make birdie himself – was ultimately the best of the lot. "My sports pyschologist was on the bag this week," he revealed afterwards.
