Jason Day has been removed from the published field of this week's Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Day is nursing a thumb injury. It prevented him from remaining committed to the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship two weeks ago. He hasn't played anywhere since winning the Match Play on Feb. 23. You know that he does not want to risk his status for the upcoming Masters, so today's decision isn't as much of a surprise as it is a concern that he's not yet ready to go again.

Ten golfers have gained entry into next week's PLAYERS via the latest Official World Golf Ranking.

Two criteria at the conclusion of play this weekend were used to help fill the field at TPC Sawgrass on May 7-10. The top 10 in FedExCup points is the first, but all are already eligible. The other is the top 50 in the OWGR. It's a conduit designed to loop in any internationals that have yet to qualify. Bernd Wiesberger chased his opening, bogey-free 36 holes at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with a pair of 69s to post 13-under 275 and finish in the three-way share of 33rd place. He's now 40th in the OWGR. The other nine qualifiers today are as follows: Victor Dubuisson (22nd in the OWGR); Jamie Donaldson (31st); Anirban Lahiri (35th); Branden Grace (39th); Stephen Gallacher (42nd); Joost Luiten (44th); Thongchai Jaidee (45th); Shane Lowry (48th); Danny Willett (49th).

D.H. Lee authored the shot of the day in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, holing his tee ball at the par-3 17th from 210 yards.

Lee converted the ace with a hybrid. It was the 22nd on the PGA TOUR this season. (You can view the shot via the link below.) After a birdie-4 at the last, he signed for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to post 13-under 275, good for a share of 33rd place worth $38,985.00 and 37 FedExCup points. He now has two starts remaining on his Minor Medical Extension to earn $534,718 or 307.15 FedExCup points and a promotion to the Major Medical category. Lee will resume his schedule at the Web.com Tour's United Leasing Championship this week.

Cameron Tringale enjoyed a 7-under-par 30-35=65 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 21-under 267, good for solo second.

Tringale started his final round at 14-under (T5) and two back of the lead. He made a serious run at the title, circling four birdies (on Nos. 1, 2, 6 and 8) and a chip-in eagle-3 on the par-5 seventh to go out in 6-under 30. The 27-year-old lost a bit of steam coming into the house, though. He added just one birdie on the par-5 11th before squaring his lone bogey on the par-4 13th. That dropped shot proved costly as it required an eagle on the par-5 18th to force a playoff. Alas, his chip for the 3 came up short. Tringale's consolation is a career-best finish on the PGA TOUR in 152 starts. (He shared second place at the 2014 Barclays.)
Apr 26 - 6:13 PM

Justin Rose smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 22-under 266, good for a one-stroke victory over Cameron Tringale.

Rose, a co-leader after 54 holes, sunk a dramatic birdie putt from 13'6" on the par-5 18th (his longest conversion on the round) to post the magic number. The 34-year-old concluded his loop with four straight, one-putt greens, including a 9'11" circle on the par-3 17th to set up the birdie-birdie finish. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation on the round requiring 26 putts. The Englishman went 4-for-4 in scrambling and had two other good par-breaker looks on Nos. 11 and 12, missing both from inside seven feet. This is his seventh title in 257 PGA TOUR starts. He's won at least once in every season since 2010.

Jason Day authored a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 16-under 200 and co-leads after 54 holes.

Day, the 36-hole overnight leader, began the day with a one-shot lead over three players. At the conclusion of the round, he was able to maintain a share of the top spot. The 27-year-old found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation en route to a five birdie, one bogey round. Four of his par breakers came on his outward nine including three straight on Nos. 5, 6 and 7, highlighted by a 27'3" drop at the sixth. After adding a 34-foot bomb for birdie on the par-3 14th, he dropped his lone shot on 15, failing to save par from 15 yards right of the hole.

Justin Rose twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in today's third round of the Zurich Classic to post 16-under 200 and take possession of the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Justin Rose ended up with a share of the 54-hole lead.

Rose, a Zurich brand ambassador, started round three at 9-under (T13) and three shots back of the 36-hole mark. He raced out of the gate with three birdies in his opening three holes. He cooled off, ending his front nine with six consecutive pars, scrambling successfully on Nos. 4 and 6 and missing a 4'7" birdie putt on the fifth. Back-to-back birdies on 10 and 11 jump started his round again but he had to scramble for pars three more times on 12, 13 and 16, ending with just 24 putts on the round.

World No. 247 Ashun Wu became the first Chinese golfer to win a European Tour event on home soil as he captured the Volvo China Open by a shot.

Playing in the penultimate group, the 29-year-old carded a steady 1-under-par 36-35=71 in the closing round at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club to post 9-under 279. David Howell had a chance to beat it with a birdie at the par-5 18th but the Englishman made bogey after a three-putt from just off the green, handing Wu his place in the history books. The man from China birdied just twice on his final lap, from 15 feet at the fifth and six feet at the 10th. He dropped his only shot at the eighth after failing to escape from sand. "It’s a wonderful day today," said Wu, who was playing in only his 26th European Tour event. "Everyone knows it’s very tough today, I played very good today and I’ve enjoyed this week. It’s very special winning the China Open and it’s very exciting. I have many friends here, and they helped me a lot and pushed me to play well." He becomes the first Chinese player to win on the European Tour since W.C. Liang at the 2007 Singapore Masters.

With a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in his third round of the Volvo China Open, defending champion Alexander Levy is one of four atop the leaderboard after 54 holes.

Levy tore off four consecutive birdies to open the day at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, but he played the remainder in birdie-free 3-over and settled into a co-lead with Hao-Tong Li, Ashun Wu and first-round co-leader David Howell at 8-under 208. "It was the perfect start for me," the Frenchman said, "but after that I got a little bit nervous, because I haven’t played well for three months now so I haven’t been in this position for a while. It’s nice to be back at the top of the leaderboard, but I have to get used to it again. I’m just really happy to be playing some good golf again, that’s more important than me worrying about winning the trophy again. I’ll need to have a good round again tomorrow, but it’s not easy on this course because you can’t be too aggressive." He and the others own a four-shot cushion over another foursome, including Sweden's Magnus A. Carlsson, who carded a field-low 65.

Despite a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Rickie Fowler missed the cut on the number.

It takes only one crooked number to lose in a shootout. To wit, Fowler penciled in a 6 at the par-3 17th hole in the opening round. He also bogeyed the par-5 second en route to an even-par 72 (that also included an eagle-3 and two birdies). This puts an end to a consecutive cuts made streak of 17, but he'll start anew with a guaranteed payday at next week's Match Play. Other notables that failed to survived today's cut include: 140--Harris English; Charles Howell III; Zac Blair; Will MacKenzie; Troy Merritt ... 141--Robert Streb; Jamie Donaldson; Bo Van Pelt ... 142--2007 champ Nick Watney; 2010 champ Jason Bohn ... 143--Brendan Steele ... 144--2008 champ Andres Romero; Martin Laird; Marc Warren ... 147--Scott Piercy ... 148--Tony Finau.

At 3-under-par 69-72=141, Steve Stricker missed the cut at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans by two strokes.

It's a phrase not associated with Stricker in almost three years. This is his first MC in 37 starts (2012 PLAYERS). Twelve of his paydays during the streak occurred in events with no cut. He found only 14 (of 28) fairways and 24 greens in regulation at TPC Louisiana this week. Nine birdies weren't enough to offset six bogeys. We'll see him again in two weeks at THE PLAYERS since he failed to qualify for the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship for the first time since 2006.
Apr 25 - 11:34 AM

Jason Day hung up a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and posted 12-under 132 at the break, good for outright possession of the 36-hole lead.

No one is going to catch him, so Day will be the target beginning the third round late this morning at TPC Louisiana. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and picked off seven birdies in the second round. The highlights stretch 24'1" and 33'11" at Nos. 9 and 15, respectively. The Aussie is proving that course history, or lack thereof, usually takes a back seat to current form among the elite. And remember, he'll be defending at next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, so he's on his way to being an even more popular selection in fantasy circles if he keeps playing like this.
