Phil Mickelson stumbled to a 5-over-par 37-40=77 in his opening round of the Valero Texas Open.

This is Mickelson's first appearance at TPC San Antonio and first in the event in 22 years. He split nine (of 14) fairways but found only nine greens in regulation. It opened the door for five bogeys and a three-putt double from 10'10" at the par-4 ninth hole, the last of his round. It's his highest aggregate in a PGA TOUR event since a third-round 78 at last year's PGA Championship, but it would have challenged it had a birdie attempt from 20'11" not dropped. The lefty also rolled in a five-yarder from the fringe at 16 for a birdie-2.

After an 0-2-0 start to his week in Austin, Texas, Francesco Molinari has withdrawn from this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, citing a wrist injury.

The Italian swallowed four bogeys in his match today against Thongchai Jaidee. The Thai would go onto to win 5-and-3 to eliminate Molinari. The Italian could have played spoiler in his final match of group play but instead called it quits, citing a wrist injury. With this WD, 8th-seeded Alex Noren will advanced out of Group 8 with a 3-0-0 record with a free win gifted to him tomorrow.

Kevin Kisner never trailed in his battle against match play stalwart Patrick Reed, walking off Austin Country Club with a 1-up victory to earn his first point at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Playing in blustery conditions today, both golfers failed to get much momentum today. There was just seven total birdies between the duo today (Kisner/4 ; Reed/3). One of those birdies came from Kisner on the opening par-4 first, which gave him the lead which he never surrendered all day. Reed did fight back to all square at the 11th and then again at the 16th. With Brooks Koepka starting 2-0-0 in Group 9, Patrick Reed is now eliminated but he will have a chance to play the spoiler role in his third round matchup against Koepka. Kisner will need to knock off Dufner tomorrow and then hope for a win out of Reed.

Gary Woodland conceded his second round match against Rory McIlroy and withdrew from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, citing personal reasons.

There was no press conference like Jason Day yesterday, but this is another reminded that these golfers are all battling external factors week in and week out. Woodland had started his week with a 3-and-2 victory over Emiliano Grillo but won't play another match this week, leaving the door open for Group 2 where Soren Kjeldsen and Rory McIlroy currently have 1 point. If Kjeldsen collects at least half a point against Grillo today then the Dane will advance onto the Round of 16.

Texas Longhorn product Jhonattan Vegas recorded a 3-and-1 victory over the European Ryder Cup star, Thomas Pieters, in round two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Playing in gusty conditions today, Vegas circled birdies at the par-4 first and par-4 fifth holes while Pieters scribbled five pars. The Belgian fought back with a birdie of his own at the par-3 seventh but then swallowed a bogey at the eight to give another hole to Vegas. With a 2-up lead at the turn, Vegas splashed home a 25'4" birdie at the 10th and Pieters found water at the 12th to give Vegas a 4-up lead. That lead proved to be too much for Pieters to overcome. Playing near his old University of Texas stomping grounds this week, Vegas is now 1-1-0 heading into his third round matchup against Scott Piercy. He will need Bubba Watson to lose to Thomas Pieters in order to have a chance of advancing to the Round of 16.

Trey Mullinax said his vows last weekend and returned to action today, styling a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-32=63 during the opening round of the Puerto Rico Open, tying the course record and grabbing the early lead.

The University of Alabama product arrived in a good place mentally this week, fresh off the wedding. He turned that into good play on the golf course today, pelting 15 greens in regulation despite finding just seven (of 14) fairways. His putter was dialed in as well, needing just 24 putts to make his way around Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. The PGA TOUR rookie is playing his 15th career PGA TOUR event this week, and this round eclipses his previous low round of 65 (R1, 2016 RSM). This also goes in a record books as a share of the Coco Beach G&CC course record, joining four other golfers who have shot 63 here, including James Driscoll twice.

Making his fourth appearance at Coco Beach Golf and Country Club, D.A. Points rocketed out of the gates at the Puerto Rico Open, firing a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to grab the early lead on Thursday.

Taking advantage of prime scoring conditions this morning, Points split 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation. Surprisingly, he didn't take advantage of the easiest holes on the golf course today, circling just one birdie on the four-pack of par 5s. The clear highlight of the round came at the closing par-4 ninth where he holed out a 9-iron from 146 yards for an unconventional eagle to walk off the course in style. If he maintains possession of the clubhouse lead by day's end, it will be his third career first-round lead. The previous two he would go on to win (2013 Shell Houston Open and 2011 AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am). This round fell one shy of the course record which is shared by four golfers, including James Driscoll twice.

World No. 60 Hideto Tanihara pulled off a major shock to put Jordan Spieth’s title bid tight behind the 8-ball after his 4-and-2 defeat in round one of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club.

The match started in style when both players smoothed birdie-3 at the opening hole, Spieth from 12’3", Tanihara from 4’7". They split seven pars in the next eight holes, before Tanihara, who had claimed the 7th with a 16’5" birdie, completed a kick-in par breaker at 10 and then gained the 12th with a par-5 after the American found water with his approach. Now 3-up Tanihara discovered the drink himself on 14, only for Spieth to hand a hole back when flubbing his chip at 15 and failing to rescue par from 20’5". When Spieth needed five swipes, all from off the fairway, to reach the par-5 16th the game was up. The unheralded Tanihara (best of T32 in three WGC appearances going back to 2007) will face Ryan Moore in the second series of matches, whilst Spieth faces a second Japanese challenge in the form of Yuta Ikeda.

In the unofficial Battle-of-the-Last-Two-Irish-Open-Champions Soren Kjeldsen defied an horrendous tournament record to sensationally overturn Rory McIlroy 2-and-1 in round one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin CC.

If it was David versus Goliath on paper, it was never that way in reality as Kjeldsen (0-4-1 before today) refused to wilt, even when McIlroy threw his best shots at him. The Dane’s wedge strength was key: he made birdies from 129-yards at 1, 76-yards at 5 and 94-yards at 10; all for birdie, all for wins, all within 10’0". McIlroy ticked two front nine reds, but was 2-down with 8 to play. His reaction was world class: reducing the par-3 11th to a 199-yard 8-iron and 5’10" birdie putt, making birdie-4 at the next to pull all square and driving just shy of the short par-4 13th to go 1-up. Yet Kjeldsen responded in kind, lasering a 173-yard approach at 14 to 8’6" and taking it to draw level. At the next he made birdie-4 when McIlroy failed and went in for the kill on 17, draining a 3’1" par breaker on the par-3. McIlroy will seek to rescue the week against Gary Woodland in the second wave of matches, Kjeldsen takes on Emiliano Grillo.

Charl Schwartzel made quick work of Byeong Hun An on day one of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, winning 6-and-5 to secure the first point out of Group 12.

The South African joins his fellow countryman, Branden Grace, as the first two match winners of this week's event. Despite the final score, it wasn't an open-and-shut case. Byeong Hun An overcame an early deficit when he recorded a par at the second hole to regain ALL SQUARE status. An would take the lead just two holes later when he tapped in a 2'5" par. Schwartzel took over the match from there, winning seven of the next nine holes to close out the match. He circled just three birdies over that stretch, but An failed to fight back. Up next for Schwartzel is a Friday match against the Dutchman, Joost Luiten.

World No. 12 Patrick Reed looks to defend his reputation as a strong match play competitor as he readies for this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The American Ryder Cup hero arrives with an impressive singles record under his belt, 10-5-1 in his career. That includes a 3-1-0 record at Austin Country Club last year, going undefeated in group play before losing in the Round of 16 to Dustin Johnson. This time around his opening Round Robin group includes Brooks Koepka, Kevin Kisner, and Jason Dufner. Most years Brooks Koepka would be a very tough opponent in this format, but Koepka arrives a bit out of form. That cements Reed's spot as the favorite to advance out of the group stage this week in Austin, Texas.

Tony Finau took home the hardware at the 2016 Puerto Rico Open but will not be making a repeat appearance as he currently finds himself as the first alternate for the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play.

The big hitter took care of business in his first trip to Coco Beach Golf & Country Club. He won the event with a four-day tally of 12-under 276 and outlasted Steve Marino in a playoff. Most of the heavy lifting was done on the par 5s as Finau finished the week 7-under on those lengthy holes, circling eight birdies to offset a lone bogey. The 27-year-old chose to skip the flight to Puerto Rico this year as he currently waits in Austin, Texas, as the first alternate. There is no guarantee he will earn a spot in the field, but it's worth a shot to find out, especially for Finau who has never played in a WGC event.
