Cameron Beckman withdrew from the FedEx St. Jude Classic during his second round.

Beckman went off the 10th tee and submitted a 2-over-par 37 on his opening nine before calling it quits. With a 6-over 76 already on the board, he was 8-over through 27 holes and in serious jeopardy of having the weekend off anyway. This drops him to 3-for-7 on the season and still without a top 35. He arrived in Memphis ranked 193rd in FedExCup points. It an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you. Beckman did not qualify for the U.S. Open.

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.

The R&A announced today that six golfers have been added to the field of 156 at The Open Championship at St. Andrews on July 16-19.

With established criteria sending fewer than planned in recent weeks, the host organization for the season's third major used the latest Official World Golf Ranking to plug the gaps. By virtue of ranking highest among those not yet eligible, the following golfers have gained entry (* = will be making his tournament debut): Francesco Molinari (43rd in the OWGR); Matt Jones (67th); Tim Clark (71st); *David Lingmerth (72nd); Harris English (74th); *Daniel Berger (75th).

For the third time this season, Garrett Osborn has successfully open qualified for a PGA TOUR event, this time for this week's Greenbrier Classic.

The 30-year-old first turned the trick at the Sanderson Farms where he parlayed a T9 into a top-10 exemption at Mayakoba (MC). He then navigated the four-spotter for the St. Jude but also missed the cut in the tournament proper. Today at the Resort at Glade Springs' Cobb Course in Daniels, West Virginia, Osborn shot 5-under-par 33-33=66 with an eagle-3 and four birdies to cover one bogey. He and seven-time West Virginia Open champion David Bradshaw (33-33=66; six birdies, one bogey) survived a 3-for-2 playoff with Mike Van Sickle. Virginia Tech product Garland Green was the medalist with a 7-under 30-34=64. He buried eight birdies against one bogey to secure his PGA TOUR debut. Patrick Newcomb took runner-up honors with a bogey-free, 6-under 32-33=65 (six birdies). In his only previous TOUR start, Newcomb missed the cut at The McGladrey Classic last fall, also as an open qualifier. The field at The Old White TPC is now complete at 156.

Rob Oppenheim lit up Crestview Country Club for a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Air Capital Classic to pick up his first Web.com Tour victory at 13-under 267.

He surpassed the 54-hole leader, Andy Winings, by one stroke. Oppenheim circled four birdies and an eagle in the finale, landing 16 GIR in the process. The irons were the key to his breakthrough performance, as he was second in GIR for the tournament. This marked his 129th start on the Web.com Tour, and he now moves from 70th to 13th on the money list with this victory. Should he end the year inside the top 25 on the money list, he would earn a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card.

Charley Hoffman has finally qualified for The Open Championship.

Hoffman is eighth in the FedExCup standings through the Travelers Championship. The top five and ties, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 20 in FedExCup points tonight earned exemptions into the season's third major. He just missed qualifying when the Official World Golf Ranking was used following the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial. Robert Streb (12th), Kevin Kisner (14th) and Steven Bowditch (17th) also gained entry into the field of 156 at St. Andrews. All of the other 16 inside the top 20 were already exempt.

With birdie on the second playoff hole, Bubba Watson emerged with victory at the Travelers Championship.

The 2010 Travelers champion hung up a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round to post 16-under 264 and force sudden death with Paul Casey. After the duo traded pars on the par-4 18th to open the playoff, Watson won with birdie-3 on the second hole (also the 18th) as Casey was lying five. Watson, who led outright after 18 and 36 holes, began the day at 13-under (T2) and one back of the 54-hole lead. The 36-year-old circled birdies at Nos. 1 and 2 to move to 15-under early on and sole possession of the lead. He concluded his outward half with seven consecutive pars, registering just 11 putts over his first nine. After pars at Nos. 10-12 (to reach 10 straight), he broke the string at the par-5 13th, a hole that featured a 208-yard approach from the fairway bunker to 39'3" from where he connected for the eagle-3. Watson's victory is his eighth of his PGA TOUR career (223 starts). Coupled with his win at the WGC-HSBC Champions, he's now the fourth multiple winner on the 2014-15.

With a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in his final round of the Travelers Championship, Graham DeLaet posted 14-under 267, good for outright fourth place an exemption into The Open Championship.

We're at that time of the season when tournaments are also qualifiers for the season's third major. The top four, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 12 and ties at TPC River Highlands were awarded tee times at St. Andrews on July 16. DeLaet started the day just one shot off the 54-hole lead, so he was in pursuit of his first PGA TOUR title as well. Alas, he opened with a double bogey-6 at the first hole to set the tone for another also-ran performance. He rallied for four birdies before walking off with bogey at the par-4 18th. The good news is that he'll be making his third consecutive appearance in The Open Championship. Brian Harman (solo third at the Travelers), Carl Pettersson (solo fifth) and Luke Donald (T7) claimed the other berths. Donald's world ranking (68th) served as the tiebreaker with Bo Van Pelt (248th) and Mark Wilson (441st), both of whom also tied for seventh today.

Paul Casey twirled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's final round of the Travelers Championship to post the 72-hole clubhouse lead at 16-under 264, and then lost on the second playoff hole to Bubba Watson.

It's Casey's second playoff loss of the season (Northern Trust). After he and the lefty traded pars the first time through the par-4 18th hole in sudden death, the Englishman made a glorious mess of the hole the second time through. He found a greenside bunker with his approach, skulled his third into the crowd and didn't get inside Watson's birdie look until his fifth stroke. The eventual champ then buried the birdie to put Casey out of his misery. The Brit began Sunday's festivities at 11-under (T4) and three off the pace. Playing in the penultimate threesome, he outpaced one bogey with four birdies and a hole-out from 126 yards for eagle at the par-4 third. Typically, that would easily be his shot of the day, but he also rolled in a 64-footer at the par-3 eighth for birdie. His 65 was the field's low round of the day.

Because they sit inside the top 20 of the Race to Dubai standings at the conclusion of the BMW International Open, Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Alex Noren have qualified for The Open Championship.

The top five and ties inside the top 20 of the R2D are exempt into the season's third major, but the other 18 had already gained entry. Aphibarnrat finished in a three-way tie for fourth place in Munich today and sits 13th in the R2D. Noren took the week off, but he's 14th to comfortably qualify. A win at the Nordea Masters nearly a month ago laid the foundation for what will be the Swede's sixth appearance in The Open Championship. In his only other try at St. Andrews, he missed the cut in 2010. Aphibarnrat will be making his third consecutive start in the major; he's 0-for-2.
Jun 28 - 12:31 PM

With a closing bogey-free 31-35=66, Pablo Larrazábal came from five strokes back to score a one-shot victory at the BMW International Open in Germany.

A total of 17-under 271 edged the Spaniard ahead of the fast-finishing Henrik Stenson and gave him a second win at Golfclub München Eichenried. Larrazábal, who first won this event in 2011, took the outright lead for good with a 15-foot birdie putt at 16. That removed the stress of having to make birdie at the par-5 18th and the 32-year-old laid up after finding sand off the tee, wedged to 20 feet and two-putted to land his fourth European Tour win. Chris Paisley could still have matched with an eagle at the last but the young Englishman leaked his drive right and could only make par although that was enough for a career-best solo third. Overnight leader James Morrison had a day to forget, shooting a 77 to end T11. Larrazábal, who was 12-for-13 in scrambling over the weekend, came into the event without a top 40 in his previous five tournaments. He's now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational for the fourth time.

Brian Harman tacked on a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 in today's third round of the Travelers Championship and his 14-under 196 aggregate has him one shot clear of Graham DeLaet and Bubba Watson.

Harman, making his 116th career start, will enter championship Sunday as the 54-hole leader, same position as he was at the 2014 John Deere Classic, where he went on to win his lone PGA TOUR title to date. The University of Georgia product, playing in the final pairing with fellow Bulldog Watson, began the day in a three-way T2 at 9-under, two shots back. For his efforts, he split nine (of 14) fairways, landed 15 greens in regulation, and totaled 28 putts. The 28-year-old circled five birdies on Nos. 1, 7, 10, 13 and 18, with his 3'8" roll at the last pushing him to the top of the board. Harman, 96th in the FedExCup standings has two top 10s on 20 starts, including a season-best T8 at THE PLAYERS. Inclement weather is forecast, requiring threesomes for Sunday, so he'll be in the final group with his closest pursuers DeLaet and Watson.
