John Mallinger is slated to compete in this week's Travelers Championship.

What's notable here is that if he doesn't withdraw prior to his tee time in the opening round, he'll be making his last start via a Major Medical Extension. To retain status, he needs to bank either $273,364 or 156.85 FedExCup points. The easier of the two tracks would require a solo fourth that would pay $297,600. (To fulfill the terms via FedExCup points, he'd have to finish no worse than a two-way T3.) As a secondary goal, Mallinger would secure conditional status with a solo 13th-place finish that would yield exactly the 60 FedExCup points needed. Short of that and he'll lose his status on the PGA TOUR since he is a non-winner and 50 paydays short of qualifying for Veteran Membership. His best result this season is a T12 at the WM Phoenix Open. Mallinger's last top 10 on the PGA TOUR was a T4 at the 2012 Frys.com Open.

Wesley Bryan tore through PGA National’s Champion Course in round one of The Honda Classic, piecing together a 6-under-par 30-34=64 to grab a share of the early clubhouse lead with Cody Gribble.

The 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year is making his tournament debut, but did not arrive without course knowledge. Bryan finished T9 at the 2015 Web.com Tour Q-School event held at PGA National. He opened on the back nine today and circled two birdies before the turn to offset his lone bogey which came at the par-4 14th after missing a 5'1" par-saving attempt. After the turn, Bryan leaned heavily on the flat stick, splashing home three putts from 9-to-14 feet, leading to a five-birdie inward nine. If Bryan can hold onto his current co-lead, it will go in the books as his second-career lead/co-lead after any round (co-led after R2 of the 2016 John Deere Classic en route to a T8).

Cameron Percy withdrew during round one of The Honda Classic, he was 2-over thru 11 at the time of his WD. No injury news has been provided at this point.

The Aussie opened on the back nine with a bogey at the par-4 10th. He traded a bogey at the 17th with a birdie at the 18th before making the turn at a respectable 1-over 36. Percy swallowed a third bogey at the par-4 second after finding trouble in the fairway bunker and called it quits after his tee shot on the following hole. The Web.com Tour grad was making his second appearance at The Honda Classic, first since a T71 in his 2013 debut. There was no injury cited at the time of the WD, but we will pass along that information if/when it becomes available.

Making his debut at The Honda Classic, Cody Gribble pieced together a 6-under-par 31-33=64, grabbing the early clubhouse lead on day one.

The lefty arrived on the heels of four straight missed cuts, but you'd never know it by watching today's round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways en route to hitting all 18 greens in regulation. He is the first player in Honda history to land all 18 greens. Gribble walked off the course gaining 4.202 strokes approaching-the-green. His putter was not quiet, either, as he roped in six putts from 9'9" or longer, including a pair from just under 28 feet. If the clubhouse lead holds on by day's end, it will be his second lead after any round on TOUR, with the previous being after R4 of his victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall.

Ben Crane caught fire with the flat stick en route to a 4-under-par 35-31=66 during round one of The Honda Classic, finding himself inside the top 5 on the AM leaderboard.

PGA National's Champion Course can be a real challenge, but it's much easier when you're making putts from everywhere. That's exactly what Crane did in round one. He opened on the back nine and dropped in five putts from outside nine feet. That was all before making the turn, converting two more putts from 9-to-11 feet on his way into the clubhouse. The big whopper was a 32'5" splash for birdie at the par-3 15th. Overall, Crane walked off the course gaining 5.107 strokes putting. The 40-year-old is no stranger to success around here, posting a T12 in 2008 and solo third in 2009. It's unlikely he can maintain this torrid putting pace but it's given him a nice head start on the field.

Scott Stallings twirled a 3-under-par 36-37=67 during his opening navigation of PGA National's Champion Course at the Honda Classic, circling a hole-in-one at the par-3 15th along the way.

Stallings arrived in good form, posting a solo eighth at the CareerBuilder Challenge and a T14 at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am over his last three starts. He kept that momentum rolling today, posting his second-lowest score at PGA National's Champion Course (4-under 66, R2 of 2013 edition). The clear highlight of the round came at the 15th where he holed his tee shot at the 179-yard par 3. It will go in the books as his third-career ace on the PGA TOUR (2016 Valero Texas Open and 2011 Transitions Championship). Making his fourth appearance at the Honda Classic, Stallings is still looking for his first top 25 here, and is well on his way after a solid opening round.

Tim Wilkinson had a short week at the Honda Classic, withdrawing after 12 holes, citing a back injury.

The Kiwi was making his sixth appearance at this event, posting a 4-for-5 record with a WD in 2010 (food poisoning). This time around he opened with a double bogey, adding another double at the par-3 fifth, and also sprinkled regular bogeys at Nos. 3, 10, and 11. That placed him at 7-over thru 12 holes and he called it quits from there. Wilkinson arrived with five straight cuts made, so gamers shouldn't lose interest, long-term, over this one bad outing.

George Coetzee was 5-under through 13 holes in his first round at the Joburg Open and four behind clubhouse leader Paul Peterson before play was suspended for the day due to a waterlogged course at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in South Africa.

Heavy rains had already hampered the build-up to this week's European Tour event, causing the cancellation of Tuesday's Pro-Am, and further downpours in the afternoon session left 103 players still to complete their rounds. Coetzee, the 2014 winner here, was T7 on the leaderboard after ticking five birdies. They all came on his opening nine on the tougher South Course as Coetzee circled red at 1, 4, 6, 8 and 9 before adding four pars after the turn. Play is set to resume at 6.45am local time Friday morning. A place in this summer's Open Championship at Royal Birkdale is available to the top three players in the top 10 who are not already exempt. Coetzee has yet to qualify so that gives him even more incentive as he looks to battle it out for the claret jug for the seventh straight year.

Paul Peterson blitzed Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club's West Course for a bogey-free 9-under-par 31-31=62 in round one of the Joburg Open on Thursday, good enough for a two-shot clubhouse lead before play was called off early due to heavy rain.

The American made the big breakthrough on the European Tour with victory at last summer's D+D REAL Czech Masters after a 64-67 weekend finish. He went two lower than that Saturday round after pouring in four birdies in his final five holes (14, 15, 16 and 18) today. The left-hander was already 5-under by that point having started fast with circles at 1, 2, 5, 6 and 9 on his outward half. He leads by two from English duo Paul Waring and Aaron Rai although 103 players still have to complete their rounds and George Coetzee (-5 after 13) and Adilson Da Silva (-5 after 12) could still reel him in. Peterson withdrew after a 77 in his opener at this event last year but the straight-hitting 28-year-old has been in decent form with T29 in Malaysia and T28 at the Qatar Masters on his last two starts. "I feel like I've been playing really well the last few weeks and I feel like a round like this has been building," said Peterson, who will play the tougher East Course in round two.

Prior to the start of the event, Steve Marino has withdrawn from this week's Honda Classic, opening a spot for first alternate Andres Gonzales.

Marino was one of the five golfers last week who failed to return on Saturday morning to finish up their second round. It was assumed to be weather-related at the time, but perhaps there was a bigger issue for Marino. Prior to last week's WD, the 36-year-old had missed the cut in five of his previous six starts. Gamers can avoid Marino until he shows some form.

Justin Thomas will get a few home-cooked meals ahead of this week's Honda Classic in Palm Beach Gardens, Florida.

The Jupiter resident rocketed out of the gates this season with three wins in his first five starts. He's cooled a bit with a missed cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and T39 at last week's Genesis Open. The big hitter will look to get back in the winner's circle on a layout where he's already found success. After a missed cut in his 2015 debut, he returned to post four rounds under-par en route to a T3 finish. Over the last six years, only four others have accomplished the same feat of four red numbers (Rory McIlroy/2012; Tom Gillis/2012; Ryan Palmer/2014; Sergio Garcia/2014). Gamers should give Thomas a very strong look this week, in all formats.

Local man George Coetzee will take on a rain-drenched Royal Johannesburg & Kensington GC when he goes in search of a second victory at the Joburg Open in South Africa.

Heavy rain in the build-up has softened the two courses (East and West) used this week and caused the pre-qualifier at nearby Houghton Golf Club to be called off Tuesday with the course waterlogged. Coetzee has seen a variety of weather conditions in this event down the years but has connected six top 25s since 2011. The highlight was his three-shot win in 2014, the 19-under total giving him the first of a trio of European Tour wins (two coming in South Africa). Coetzee, who was also T3 at this venue in 2013, has finished in the top 55 on the Race to Dubai for the last six seasons. He's currently 43rd this time despite cashing in just 50% of his starts so far. The highlight of those six events was T7 in the Dubai Desert Classic earlier this month. He warmed up for this week with T14 in the local Sunshine Tour's Dimension Data Pro-Am last Sunday although the 30-year-old started the Sunday of that tournament in a tie for the lead. Gamers shouldn't hesitate to get him on board this week.
