Phil Mickelson fashioned a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in his opening round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

With allegations of insider trading and the prospect of the career grand slam looming, it's easy to overlook the fact that Mickelson tied for second place at TPC Southwind last year. He hit just 11 greens in regulation today, but penciled in only two bogeys against five birdies. His longest par breaker was his last and on the last hole of his loop. It measured 11'10" at the par-4 ninth.

With an up-and-down for par at his 19th hole of the day, Rafa Cabrera-Bello assumed the lead on day two of the Open de France.

After returning to the course this morning to complete a bogey-free 68 which put him in a four-way tie for the lead, the Spaniard advanced his score to 4-under 138 after following it up with a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in round two. That put him a shot clear of Tyrrell Hatton, Jaco Van Zyl, James Morrison, Daniel Brooks and Francesco Molinari. RCB now has an immediate shot at converting another halfway lead after he failed to do so (finished T11) when two clear after 36 holes of last week's BMW International Open. Today he suffered his first bogeys so far, dropping shots at 11, 5 and 7 but birdies at 14, 17, 6 and 8 allowed him to break par for the second day running at the testing Le Golf National which will host the 2018 Ryder Cup. So far, Cabrera-Bello has split just 13 of 28 fairways but he's kept his score intact by going 8-for-10 in scrambling.

Rafa Cabrera-Bello was part of a four-way tie for the lead when the first round of the Alstom Open de France was completed on Friday morning.

The Spaniard was one of 42 players who had to return to Le Golf National to finish off after storms had disrupted play on Thursday and he safely made par at 18 to card a 3-under-par 34-34=68 and join Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and South African Jaco Van Zyl at the top of the pile. Cabrera-Bello, who also had a share of the first-round lead at last week's BMW International in Germany, was bogey free on his opening lap after going 5-for-5 in scrambling. He picked up his birdies at 3, 4 and 15. Maximilian Kieffer was the leader at 4-under when storms halted play on Thursday evening but on his return this morning he dropped three shots in his final two holes to slip back to 1-under. Round two started as scheduled at 07:30 local time.

Danny Lee crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic and sits just one strokes off Scott Langley's overnight lead.

Lee is making his PGA TOUR-leading 27th start this week. The travel hasn't affected him negatively as he's fresh off his eighth top 25 of the season (T25, Travelers) and sits 57th in the FedExCup standings. At The Old White TPC today, the 24-year-old hit 15 greens in regulation and found seven birdies, including a pair from 11-14 feet. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.750. His aggregate matches his career low first established at Pebble Beach in the first round of the annual stop on the Monterey Peninsula.

Peter Uihlein withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic during his opening round, citing a neck injury.

Uihlein, who was competing on a sponsor exemption, completed 11 holes in birdie-free 4-over-par. He walked off after a par at the par-4 11th. This is his first mid-tournament WD in 17 PGA TOUR starts as a professional. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Scottish Open. The European Tour member is 56th in the Race to Dubai standings.

Maximilian Kieffer led the way at 4-under after 14 holes as day one of the Open de France started and ended with a thunderstorm.

A two-and-a-half hour delay at Le Golf National meant the afternoon starters faced a battle to complete their rounds and Kieffer still had four to play when a second storm halted proceedings. He'd arrived at 4-under after mixing six birdies with a double bogey-5 at No.2. His par breakers came at 1, 3, 5, 9, 11 and 12 and helped take him one in front of clubhouse leaders Bernd Wiesberger, Victor Dubuisson and Jaco Van Zyl, who all posted 68s. Two other players, Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Andrew Dodt, sit at 3-under and both had just a single hole to play before the storms returned. A total of 42 players will return to the course at 07:30 local time on Friday to finish up. Round two will also start as scheduled at 07:30.

Jonathan Byrd spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Oh, them breaks. Byrd tied his career low today and doesn't even share the lead in his own wave. This is the sixth time he's signed for a 63 in 1,088 career rounds on the PGA TOUR. He hit 13 greens in regulation and converted seven birdies. Three of them found the cup from outside 17 feet, the round-long measuring 36'9" at the par-4 10th hole. He also recorded a zero-putt six-yarder for birdie at the par-4 11th. Byrd's greatest test to keep his scorecard clean was fulfilled when he rolled in a five-yarder for par from the fringe at the par-4 seventh. At last check, he ranked sixth in both strokes-gained stats. At 166th in the FedExCup standings, today's success couldn't have come at a better time. Now comes the hard part, to make it count.

Scott Langley blistered The Old White TPC for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-32=62 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Langley is 144th in the FedExCup standings, but he's coming off a T25 at the Travelers, just his third top 25 of the season, so he arrived in West Virginia with some momentum. He piped 12 (of 14) fairways and missed only one green in regulation, converting on eight looks for birdie. Three of them traveled longer than 10 feet, the highlight dropping in from 19'1" at the par-4 second hole. At last check, he led the field in birdies and strokes gained: tee-to-green (4.302). His aggregate matches his career low first recorded in the opening round of the 2013 Sony Open in Hawaii, which was his debut round as a PGA TOUR rookie.

Victor Dubuisson delighted the locals by taking a share of the clubhouse lead with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in round one of the Alstom Open de France.

The Frenchman sank a 10-foot putt at his final hole, the par-5 9th, to match the target set by Bernd Wiesberger. Dubuisson was quiet early on, playing his first eight holes in 1-over due to a bogey-6 at 14. He made amends with a birdie at 18 and circled three more at 3, 5 and 7 to join the lead. This is another positive sign for the Ryder Cup star, who snapped a poor run of form with a top 20 in Germany last week.
Jul 2 - 10:03 AM

Bernd Wiesberger crafted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to post the clubhouse target on day one of the Alstom Open de France.

After morning thunderstorms in Paris delayed the start of the tournament by two-and-a-half hours, Wiesberger opened with three pars before circling his first birdie of the day at 13. The Austrian reeled off five more pars before making his move with further birdies at 1, 3 and 5. His only blemish of the day would come on his penultimate hole, the par-3 8th. The two-time European Tour winner has contended strongly in this event for the last two years so it's no surprise to see him in the mix again. Today's round matches his low 18 at Le Golf National.

Although it came unexpectedly, Matt Dobyns collected his second victory at the PGA Professional National Championship today.

Eventual runner-up Ben Polland double-bogeyed the par-4 18th hole to finish one stroke adrift of Dobyns' 3-under-par 72-69-68-70=279 at Philadelphia Cricket Club. Dobyns' first title in this event in 2012. Polland doesn't come away empty-handed, though. The top 20 are exempt into the PGA Championship at Whistling Straits on Aug. 13-16. The other qualifiers are: 282--Alan Morin; Grant Sturgeon ... 283--Omar Uresti; Brian Cairns; Sean Dougherty; Brett Jones; Austin Peters ... 284--Bob Sowards; Charles Frost; Ryan Helminen; Ryan Kennedy; Johan Kok; Adam Rainaud ... 285--Jeff Olson; Brent Snyder; Daniel Venezio; Steven Young ... 286--Brian Gaffney (survived 5-for-1 playoff with a birdie on the first extra hole). For winning, Dobyns gets six somewhat restricted PGA TOUR exemptions in 2015-16.
Jul 1 - 7:12 PM

Retief Goosen completed 36-hole Final Qualifying for The Open Championship in 5-under-par 67-72=137 at Woburn Golf Club's Marquess' Course, and then survived a 3-for-1 playoff for a berth into the tournament proper.

Goosen hasn't competed in the season's third major since 2012. In St. Andrews' last two turns in the rotation, he finished T5 (2005) and sixth (2010). Amateur Paul Dunne or Ireland paced this qualifier at 9-under 70-65=135. In his only previous start in a PGA TOUR event, he missed the cut at Royal Liverpool last year. European Tour veteran Robert Dinwiddie took runner-up honors today at 6-under 70-68=138. The 32-year-old from England will be making his debut in The Open. Notables that failed to qualify today include: 140--Robert Rock ... 141--Mikael Lundberg ... 143--Colin Montgomerie; Kenneth Ferrie ... 145--Richard Green ... 146--Nick O'Hern ... 147--Nick Dougherty ... 149--Thorbjørn Olesen.
