With a 5-under-par 31-35=66 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage, Scott Langley shares the clubhouse lead.

Since a solo third at Copperhead five weeks ago, Langley is 0-for-2. That mini-drought figures to end at Harbour Town where he hit 12 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies today. He holed six of them on the front nine, but the only of notable distance measured 17 feet at the par-3 14th. He also salvaged a par from 11'1" at 3.

Lee McCoy twirled a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 and then survived a 6-for-2 playoff during today's open qualifier into this week's RBC Canadian Open. Joining him at Glen Abbey Golf Club will be Drew Nesbitt (-5), Riley Wheeldon (-5), and Jhared Hack (-4) with the latter also surviving the 6-man playoff.

McCoy is currently spending his time north of the border on the Mackenzie Tour, so this was familiar hunting ground. The Georgia Bulldog standout won the opening event of the season (Freedom 55 Financial Open) and current ranks 4th on the money list. That bodes well for his chances to crack the Web.com Tour by year's end. He would love to piece together a couple of top-heavy finishes and avoid the WCT altogether. He certainly has the talent to do so, but it shouldn't be expected. McCoy is the only qualifier who is not a Canuck. The remaining three qualifiers have a progressive degree of experience on the PGA TOUR. Drew Nesbitt is making his debut, Jhared Hack is 0-for-1 in his PGA TOUR career (2015 Honda), and Riley Wheeldon is 0-for-2 on the big stage, but hasn't pegged it since the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open.

Brandt Snedeker has backed out of the field for this week's RBC Canadian Open, giving a spot to first alternate Sam Saunders.

Snedeker provided a message to fans last week before withdrawing from The 146th Open. He cited a rib injury that popped up and didn't improve like he would have hoped. He did not provide another lengthy explanation this week, but gamers can put two and two together. First a hand injury and now the ribs are acting up(which he's suffered from in the past), makes it easy to avoid Snedeker for the foreseeable future.

Second-round leader and World No. 392 Chad Collins crafted a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Barbasol Championship to conclude on 20-under 264, up one spot to a career-best solo 2nd, one short of champion Grayson Murray, who also shot 68.

This was the 38-year-old's 177th career TOUR start with a previous best of 3rd at the 2016 Valero Texas Open. It was his second Barbasol after finishing 61st last year. After opening in 67-60, the Indiana native and resident led by four shots, his second career 36-hole lead/co-lead, adding a R3 69 to begin the finale in a two-way T3 on 17-under, two adrift of 54-hole leader Scott Stallings. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.395 strokes approaching-the-green. For a second straight day, he didn't record a front-nine par breaker, going out in 1-over with bogey-6 at five, but for a second straight day, didn't record a blemish on the back side, coming home in 4-under with birdies at 13, and a hat-trick at 15-17, the latter from 16'8". Collins nets his second top 25 of the season and second top 10 among just five made cuts in 23 starts, eclipsing a previous-best T4 at the Honda.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 156 Grayson Murray authored a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Barbasol Championship to post 21-under 263, good for a one-shot win over second-round leader Chad Collins.

The 23-year-old, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, bags his first PGA TOUR title in his 25th career start (24 pro), and 24th start of the season. He is the fourth straight 23-year-old to win on TOUR, with three of the last four at 40/1, and the eighth consecutive winner in their 20s. After kicking off in 67-64-64, the Arizona State product began in solo 2nd on 18-under, one shy of 54-hole leader Scott Stallings. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.044 strokes off-the-tee, No. 1 in SG: OTT with a cumulative 6.119. The North Carolinian, a one-time winner on the Web.com Tour, camouflaged three bogeys at Nos. 1 (3-putt from 54'1"), 8 (3-putt from 15'3") and 14, with four birdies at 2 (from 22'11"), 7, 9 and 16, adding eagle-3 at 13 from 4'5". He posted a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and -1.345 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. Murray's previous best was T8 at the Sanderson Farms 38 weeks ago.

Matt Kuchar steadied a 1-under-par 34-35=69 during round four of The 146th Open, flirting with victory but finding himself in solo second by week's end, posting a total of 9-under 271, three strokes behind the winner, Jordan Spieth.

Starting the day three back, Kuchar did all you could ask for out of someone playing in the final group at a major championship. He traded two birdies with two bogeys on the outward nine and actually took the lead after the par-4 13th. From there he added birdies at 15 and 17 but his playing partner, Jordan Spieth, went unconscious at the same time, going 5-under from the 14th to 17th holes. Needing a birdie, Kuchar got aggressive at the closing hole, leading to a bogey. In the end, this still goes in the books as a career best in major championships for Kuchar (T3, 2012 Masters). It also eclipses his previous best at this event (T9, 2012 Open Championship). Kuchar may be approaching 40 years of age, but he's not showing any signs of slowing down.

Jordan Spieth looked shaky early on before finishing in a fury at The 146th Open, carding a 1-under-par 37-32=69 to become Champion Golfer of the Year with a four-day tally of 12-under 268, three clear of playing partner Matt Kuchar and six shots clear of Hao Tong Li who finished in third place.

Spieth was hitting it all over the ballpark today while not saving pars with his magical putter, like he often does. That resulted in four bogeys on the outward nine but the real disaster took place at the par-4 13th. It was here he missed massively off the tee and took over 20 minutes to setup a unique drop on the practice grounds. He survived complete disaster, swallowing just a bogey, but also lost the lead in the process. That provided a jolt to Spieth as he proceeded to nearly ace the par-3 14th, eagle the 15th, and then added birdies at 16 and 17, as well. A truly remarkable bounce-back performance for Spieth who now owns three out of the four legs in the career Grand Slam. He will have a chance to complete that feat in three weeks at the PGA Championship. Spieth has now converted 9 out of his last 10 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes, cementing himself as the best finisher in golf right now.

Rory McIlroy steadied a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the final round of The 146th Open, ending his time at Royal Birkdale on 5-under 275, good for a spot inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

It's always fun, but not always productive, to play the what-if game. What if McIlroy didn't start his week with five bogeys in his opening six holes? That's a big if, but if he managed to play those at even par then he'd be winning this event on 10-under. Instead, he he'll settle for a top 5. That may not reach the lofty standards set by McIlroy over his career but it's a great achievement when you consider his form entering the week: MC-T17-MC-MC in his last four worldwide starts. Now that he's flashed a bit of form, McIlroy is sure to be a popular pick when the final major of the year is played at Quail Hollow, a venue where McIlroy has already won twice in his career (2010 and 2015 Wells Fargo Championship).

Marc Leishman blizted Royal Birkdale with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 during the final round of The 146th Open, flying into a share of fourth place on the live leaderboard on 4-under 276.

The Aussie couldn't find the bottom of the cup on Friday, going birdie-free en route to a 6-over 76. He limped into the weekend, right on the cut line, but has since rattled off nine birdies and an eagle, camouflaging a pair of bogeys. Leishman split just 25 (of 56) fairways on the week but still managed 29 greens in regulation over the weekend. The 33-year-old Aussie would love to have a do-over on the windy second round, but despite the setback he is still in line to post his third top 10 at the Open Championship.

Hao Tong Li set an early target at The 146th Open, closing his week with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63, grabbing a seat in the clubhouse with the early lead on 6-under 274.

The youngster was lurking from off the pace for the first three rounds but went in all-out-attack mode today. In particular, he circled five birdies in his last seven holes, including each of the last four. He swallowed just two bogeys on the back nine, the entire week, playing the homeward nine at 7-under-par. Li really caught fire with the flat stick today as he needed just 25 putts to make his way around Royal Birkdale. The 20-year-old has never shyed away from the winner's circle as he already boasts three wins on the PGA TOUR China circuit and also won the 2016 Volvo China Open on the European Tour. He will now sit in the clubhouse and hope for carnage on the course. Li posted a 68th-place finish at the U.S. Open this season (his major championship debut) so this will easily go in the books as his new personal best in a major and new low round for his PGA TOUR career (66 twice during 2016 WGC-HSBC Champions).

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 280 Rick Lamb sleepwalked to an even-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship and at 2-under 211, will not have a Sunday tee time, missing the secondary 54-hole cut by one shot.

A total of 83 players made the 36-hole cut (2-under 140) so a second cut of low 70 and ties took place after 54 holes. Lamb, a pre-tourney 50/1 outright, arrived off a career-best T3 at last week's John Deere. He opened with 67-73, one of 16 players to survive the cut on the number, and headed to the exit after a three-birdie three-bogey effort on eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. Joining the 26-year-old on the bench for Sunday: 211- Craig Barlow; Chris Smith; Andres Gonzales ... 212- Carl Pettersson; Bobby Wyatt; Stuart Appleby; Jonathan Randolph ... 213- Shaun Micheel ... 215- Andrew Loupe ... 216- Rich Berberian, Jr.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 156 Grayson Murray crafted a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship for a 54-hole total of 18-under 195, one adrift of leader Scott Stallings.

After opening in 67-64, the 23-year-old began T2 and now sits solo 2nd. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.020 strokes off-the-tee, No. 1 in SG: OTT with a cumulative 5.075. The Arizona State product squared a lone bogey-4 at eight, overshadowed by eight birdies at Nos. 1, 4, 5, 9, 12, 14, 15 and 17, posting 1.467 putts per GIR and 2.192 SG: Putting. His split included three from between 11 and 16 feet, and seven from greater than seven feet. The North Carolinian is chasing his first TOUR title in his 25th career start (24 pro). He has just one top 10 so far, a T8 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms 38 weeks ago as 36-hole leader (67-65-72-71).
