Bill Haas crafted a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his opening round of the 78th Masters, good for outright possession of the overnight lead.

He missed only one of 14 fairways and four greens in regulation today, picking off six birdies along the way, several of some length. While he's cashed in every edition since his debut in 2010, Haas hadn't broken 70 until today. The 2011 FedExCup champion has yet to record a top 10 in a major, but he's in his age-32 season (his birthday is May 24), so it's hardly surprising that he generated attention today.

Aaron Baddeley toured Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course in 3-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic and finished two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Badds recorded six red numbers in his first two starts, but he placed outside the top 30 in both. He's evolved into a serviceable own over the years, but probably comes across as an underachiever to the masses. Today was quite something, however, as he converted two eagle-3s. The first was a bit unexpected as he holed out from 14 yards from a lie off the green at the seventh hole. The second was a traditional conversion at No. 15, this time from 43'2". Elsewhere, the Aussie traded one birdie with two bogeys. Today's aggregate is his lowest in a first round since he carded the same en route to a solo fourth-place finish at the Travelers Championship in June.

With a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, Andrew Svoboda is one stroke in arrears of the clubhouse leaders.

Svoboda faded to finish T18 with a closing 73 in Las Vegas this week, but he's already turned the page. He opened with seven pars, including a 12-and-a-half-footer at the par-4 first. He then buried a birdie look from 22 feet at No. 8. After striping his drive at the par-4 ninth, he jarred his approach from 172 yards for eagle. Feeding off this run, Svoboda piled on with another birdie at 10, this time from 15'11". Overall, he split 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and suffered just one bogey.

Erik Compton spun a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic to snare a share of the clubhouse lead.

Compton opened with a birdie from 15'1" at the par-4 first hole to set the tone. He birdied the par-4 second from 31-and-a-half feet and added four more, including a 11'1" conversion at the par-4 16th. His only miscue was a bogey at the par-4 14th. Overall, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation. At last check, he ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 3.373.

Michael Thompson enjoyed a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Thompson doesn't make noise often, but he's downright automatic at Seaside where he's finished third (2011) and T10 (2012). He opened both of those editions also with a 65. Today's featured six birdies against a bogey-6 at the 15th hole. Four of his par breakers dropped in from outside 10 feet, including rolls from 19'11" and 40'5" at Nos. 8 and 11, respectively. Given the he entered this week 1-for-5 with a T64 at Sedgefield in August, there no question that he's a horse for this week's course.

Brian Harman opened The McGladrey Classic with a 5-under-par 34-31=65 to establish the early clubhouse lead.

The lefty is making his first start of the season. He didn't waste any time in finding form by splitting 10 (of 14) fairways and hitting 14 greens in regulation. Harman on six opportunities, all for birdies, including rolls of 14'10", 21'7" and 20'3" at Nos. 3, 4 and 8 on his inward nine. This is his lowest aggregate since a third-round 65 en route to his breakthrough victory at the John Deere Classic in July.

Justin Lower holed nine birdies at Brunswick (Ga.) Country Club en route to a 6-under-par 34-30=64 and co-medalist honors at the open qualifier for The McGladrey Classic.

You may recall that Lower is the golfer whose father and brother were killed in a single-car crash when he was a teenager. They were en route to picking him up at a golf course. The Memorial granted him a sponsor exemption this past summer, but he missed the cut. On Monday at Brunswick, Lower was birdie-free 3-over with three bogeys after five holes. He converted all of his birdies in an 11-hole stretch beginning at No. 6. "The Big Break Greenbrier" champ Mark Silvers shared medalist honors at 6-under 32-32=64. He traded seven birdies with one bogey. The McGladrey will be his fifth PGA TOUR start; he's still chasing his first payday. The final two berths were snagged by Patrick Newcomb (4-under 36-30=66; 8 birdies, 2 bogeys, 1 double) and Andy Pope (4-under 34-32=66; 7 birdies, 1 bogey, 1 double). Both survived a 5-for-2 playoff that included PGA TOUR winner Marc Turnesa and former TOUR member Casey Wittenberg. The field at Seaside is now complete at 132.

Rory McIlroy announced that his ongoing legal dispute will force him to miss playing time in the coming weeks.

The Irish Independent reported that the world's top-ranked golfer will take a pass on either the BMW Masters (Oct. 30-Nov. 2) or the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions (Nov. 6-9). If he sits out both, he's unlikely to skip the DP World Tour Championship on Nov. 20-23. The annual stop in Dubai concludes the European Tour season.

Sixteen golfers qualified for the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions from the latest edition of the Official World Golf Ranking.

An array of qualifying criteria into the 78-man field at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China, on Nov. 6-9 centered on this weekend. Whether all of the qualifiers will compete is another story, but here's the list of those previously ineligible until the OWGR was released (current world ranking): Phil Mickelson (11th); Jordan Spieth (14th); Tiger Woods (17th); Keegan Bradley (27th); Steve Stricker (28th); Bill Haas (29th); Webb Simpson (31st); Jason Dufner (32nd); Kevin Na (34th); Graham DeLaet (41st); Ian Poulter (43rd); Brendon Todd (44th); Brandt Snedeker (45th); Marc Leishman (47th); Ryan Moore (48th); Gary Woodland (49th).

With Kevin Streelman charging, Ben Martin claimed his first PGA TOUR victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Martin closed with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 to post 20-under 264, two strokes clear of Streelman. The Clemson product enjoyed a four-stroke lead when he made the turn, but a bogey at the par-4 11th while Streelman was securing five birdies on his last seven holes briefly slid Martin into the role of a chaser. The would-be champ answered when it mattered, finding the green with a driver the par-4 15th and securing a two-putt birdie, and then holing an eagle from 46'5" at the par-5 16th to overtake Streelman for good. Martin ended the round in style, converting a 19-foot birdie on the par-4 18th. He finished the week second in strokes gained: putting, tied for third in greens hit and seventh in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Not bad for a guy that missed the cut with rounds of 78 and 79 at last week's Frys.com Open. With this victory, he is exempt into the Masters, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.

Kevin Streelman fired a final-round 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to post the clubhouse lead at 18-under 266.

Streelman put together a round reminiscent of his win at the 2014 Travelers Championship. At the Travelers, he stole the win by circling birdies on his last seven holes. Similarly, he birdied five of his last seven at TPC Summerlin on Sunday. Three of those birdies were of note, holing putts of 23'9", 11'8" and 17'9" on the 12th, 13th and 17th holes. He found 16 GIR for the second consecutive round and was tied for the lead in GIR for the week at the time of his posting. He will now wait to see how Ben Martin plays the final two holes to see if a win or a playoff are in his future.

David Lipsky, Anirban Lahiri and Scott Hend earned exemptions into the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6-9.

The trio sits a respective 1-2-3 on the Order of Merit on the Asian Tour. The top three through the Hong Kong Open are exempt into the 78-man field at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China. Lipsky is a rising American via Northwestern University. He has one win, a T2 and a T4 in nine starts on circuit. He tied for 72nd in his debut at the WGC-HSBC at Mission Hills in 2012. The 26-year-old is already exempt into the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Lahiri will be making his debut in the WGC-HSBC. The 27-year-old Indian has a win and five other top 10s in 12 starts this season, but he's $325K in arrears of Lipsky's pace in earnings. Hend snuck in the side door for his third consecutive appearance at the WGC-HSBC with today's victory in Hong Kong. He hadn't placed better than T18 in five previous starts this season.
