Adam Scott recovered from a 5-over-par 77 in his opening round of THE PLAYERS with a 5-under 33-34=67 in Friday's second round to post even-par 144.

The Aussie survived the cut on the number thanks for a birdie-birdie-par-birdie close on TPC Sawgrass' front nine. He buried seven birdies on the day. That he shaved 10 strokes paled in comparison to the news of his recent and private wedding in the Bahamas on April 17. Meanwhile, since 82 golfers advanced to the third round in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, including 19 tied for 64th place, another cut of low 70 and ties will fall after 54 holes. Other notables that snuck in at 144 include Rory McIlroy (70-74), Ernie Els (68-76), Chris Kirk (71-73), Ryan Moore (70-74), Brandt Snedeker (75-69) and 2011 champ K.J. Choi (74-70).

Joost Luiten fired a magnificent 7-under-par 32-32=64 to grab the early first round clubhouse lead in the Portugal Masters at the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

One week after the Dutchman missed the cut when defending his KLM Open title, he rediscovered his mojo with a scintillating lap of the Algarve course where he was T2 on tournament debut back in 2010. That year he posted a third round 65 and his Thursday circuit betters that as his career best on the course. His bogey-free round started on the back nine and included a hat-trick of birdie-3s at 11, 15 and 18, plus a birdie-4 at 17. The front nine saw par breakers at 1 and 5 to ease him into a tie for the lead and he broke from that with a stunning approach to the ninth green, leaving him an uphill right to left six footer for birdie which he slotted into the cup. He took lunch one shot clear of Ashun Wu and Jason Scrivener on 6-under, both also in the clubhouse. Gregory Havret (thru 15) and Nino Bertasio (12) were on 5-under with holes to play catch-up.

FedExCup leader and World No. 2 Jordan Spieth is at East Lake Golf Club for his fifth consecutive TOUR Championship and arrives as a 9/2 pre-tourney fave outright.

Spieth was the 7-seed as defending champ last year and finished T17 (68-72-72-68). He was the 2-seed in 2015 when he went on to win the tourney (as 54-hole leader) and hoist the FedExCup. The 24-year-old is the only past champion in the field this week as he looks to join Tiger Woods (2007, 2009) as the only multiple winners of the FedExCup and first player to win the tourney proper more than once (in the FEC era). He'll be paired with 2-seed Justin Thomas in R1 with the duo deadlocked for the season lead in top-10 finishes with 11 each. The Texan, who's chasing his fourth win of the season, is one of three players in the field that has opened the Playoffs with three consecutive top 10s (T7-2-P2). This is his 20th overall Playoffs event with nine prior top 10s, five top 5s, three runners-up and one win.

Andy Sullivan has a win and a second place in his last two starts at the Portugal Masters and he'll look to cash in again when he returns to Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course this week.

Sullivan powered to a nine-shot victory in 2015 and finished just one back from Padraig Harrington last year. His numbers are staggering. The Englishman is a combined 45-under across those two events, his average round score is 65.38 and he's gained 2.1 shots on the field per lap. However, he returns this year on the back of missed cuts in his last two starts, last week's KLM Open and the PGA Championship. That said, if we filter out majors and WGCs, Sullivan has two top 10s and two top 20s in his five previous regular European Tour events so gamers worrying about very latest form are entitled to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Making his course debut at the East Lake, Jon Rahm looks to finish his season on a high note as he preps for this week's TOUR Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.

Rahm is playing in his first FedExCup Playoffs and they are going great, to say the least. He is the only golfer to collect top 5s in each of the first three legs with Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth being the only other two with top 10s in all three events. That steady play has only moved him up just one spot in the FEC standings since the start of the Playoffs but that is a big ONE spot. Moving from 6th to 5th in the standings means that Rahm now controls his own destiny when it comes to winning the FedExCup title. If he wins this week, the trophy and huge bonus check is all his. It may be a lot to ask of any one (picking up a fourth straight top 5 and making that fourth a win) let alone a young golfer making his debut at East Lake. However, Rahm has spent the entire season bucking trends, making him a good option in all fantasy formats.

Thomas Pieters returns to Vilamoura for a fourth appearance in the Portugal Masters hosted by the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course.

Despite a season in which he has made the top five at Riviera CC, Augusta National and Firestone, plus briefly led the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, he enters the seasonal run-in unsatisfied by his post-Ryder Cup debut campaign. Put simply he lacks the win. Whether a victory here would entirely sate his appetite is moot, but it would be a good start after a run of MC-MC-T66. He has hopes despite a 2014 debut that saw him post nothing better than a pair of 73s. A year later he opened with a 65 on his way to an always-challenging-for-the-title T6, then last year closed with another 65 for T31. The Arnold Palmer design favors aggressive drivers so it should be a neat fit for the Belgian if he can shrug off the funk.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 5 Jon Rahm birdied four of his final five holes en route to a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the BMW Championship to wrap on 15-under 269, good for a two-way T5, eight shy of wire-to-wire winner Marc Leishman, and holds on to the No. 5 spot in the FedExCup standings.

The 22-year-old was the best finisher of 17 first-timers and is the only player to begin this postseason with top-5 finishes in each of the first three legs. After kicking off in 69-68-65, he began T5 on 11-under, eight back. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, the first-time member though not a rookie went out in bogey-free 1-under, circling birdie-4 at No. 8 from 4'5", but had dropped to T8. He gave that stroke back with a lone bogey-5 at 10 (3-putt from 54'9"), but carded a hat-trick at 14-16 and walked off with an up-and-down 4 to climb back into the top 5. The Spaniard hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, losing 1.221 strokes on-the-green but gaining 3.337 tee-to-green. He posted 1.733 putts per GIR with 29 total putts.

World No. 10 Rickie Fowler got off to a quick start, stalled out mid-round, and eventually handed in a 4-under-par 33-34=67 after the final round of the BMW Championship, finishing T2 on 18-under 266, five shy of wire-to-wire winner and playing competitor Marc Leishman, and remained at 6th in the FedExCup standings.

This is Fowler's first runner-up finish in 27 Playoffs events and has opened the postseason with progressively better results of T20-T13-T2. It's his fourth overall top-5 finish in the Playoffs, first since T4 here in 2015, and has one win, the 2015 Deutsche Bank. After kicking off in 65-64-70, the 28-year-old began T2, five back. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.905 SG: Tee-to-Green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-5 at 13 (3-putt from 37'0"), offset by five circles at 1, 2 and 14-16, two from between 12 and 23 feet. He recorded 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.211 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. It's Fowler's 10th top 10 of the season in 20 starts and a TOUR-leading eighth straight top 25.
Sep 17 - 7:14 PM

Past champ and World No. 15 Justin Rose styled a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the BMW Championship to reach 18-under 266, up two spots to T2, five back of wire-to-wire winner Marc Leishman, and jumps nine places to 8th in the FedExCup standings.

The 2011 winner began the finale five shy, was six back at the turn, but climbed within two of Leishman with birdies at 10, 12 and 13. He stalled out from there however, playing his final five holes in even-par and failing to birdie either of the back-nine par 5s after driving into fairway bunkers. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the Englishman circled seven against a lone (and costly) bogey-4 at 17 (failed scramble), his first blemish in 54 holes. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.393 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. This is Rose's fourth runner-up in the Playoffs joining his above-mentioned win at Cog Hill. It's his third straight top 10 this postseason, chasing a pair of T10s in the first two legs.
Sep 17 - 6:59 PM

Overnight leader and World No. 22 Marc Leishman, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the BMW Championship to wrap on 23-under 261, good for a five-shot wire-to-wire win over runners-up Justin Rose and Rickie Fowler, bumps three spots to 4th in the FedExCup standings, and returns to the TOUR Championship for a second time (T28/2009). UPDATE: Leishman jumps seven places to a career-high 15th in OWGR.

The 33-year-old bags his third TOUR title in 223 career events, second this season in 24 starts (Arnold Palmer). He claims his first FEC Playoffs win in 27 overall postseason tries, matches the tournament record (to par) set by Dustin Johnson last year, and records a new aggregate scoring record, eclipsing 262 by 2015 champ Jason Day and 2007 champ Tiger Woods. After opening in 62-64-68, the Aussie began with a five-shot lead over Fowler and Day and hit seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. He squared two bogey-5s at Nos. 5 and 13 (3-putt from 69'7"), outpaced by six birdies, including three in his last four holes, capping with a 19-footer from the fringe at the 72nd hole. Leishman posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.309 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. He improves to 1-for-2 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.
Sep 17 - 6:30 PM

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 88 Patrick Cantlay carved out a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the BMW Championship to conclude on 12-under 272, down four spots to T9 but climbs 12 places from 41st in the FedExCup standings to 29th. UPDATE: Two rookies, of six that were at the BMW, advanced to the TOUR Championship, Cantlay and Xander Schauffele, who finished T20 and moved to 26th in the FEC standings.

In just his 12th start of the season, which began on a Major Medical Extension, the 25-year-old stamped his ticket to the TOUR Championship, opening the Playoffs in T10-T13 and another top-10 finish. It's his seventh top 25 of the season and fourth top 10, highlighted by a career-best 2nd at the Valspar. After kicking off in 67-65-70, the UCLA product began T5 on 11-under, eight shy of 54-hole leader Marc Leishman. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, eking out a 0.185 SG: Approach-the-Green and losing 0.305 tee-to-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-5 at 16, slightly outpaced by two birdie-4s at 8 and 18, walking off with a 10-footer that secured his place at East Lake. He recorded a pedestrian 1.900 putts per GIR and -0.570 SG: Putting, needing 28 total putts.
Sep 17 - 6:08 PM

World No. 63 Tony Finau styled a career-tying-low 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the BMW Championship to post 13-under 271, up 28 places on the live leaderboard to T6 and is projected to climb 16 spots from 39th to 23rd in the FedExCup standings. UPDATE: With play completed, Finau finished T7 and at 24th in the FEC standings.

Play is still in progress but the 28-year-old will head to the TOUR Championship for the first time in his third season on the main stage. If the top 10 holds, it will be his first in nine Playoffs events, but he should brush aside a previous-best 12th at the 2016 Deutsche Bank. After opening in 65-72-70, the Utahan began T34 on 6-under, five shy of the overnight top 10. He mustered six (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 0.822 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 1.365 around-the-green. Finau squared a lone bogey-6 at 14, camouflaged by eight birdies at 1, 3, 6-8, 11, 15 and 18, recording 1.300 putts per GIR and 4.619 SG: Putting with just 20 total putts. His split included three conversions from between 14 and 25 feet, walking off with a chip-in birdie-4 from 17'10" away. The East Lake berth will also garner Finau an invite to his first Masters.
