Cameron Tringale spun a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 271, good for a seven-way share of fourth place.

Tringale had a quiet stroll around The Old White TPC, circling two birdies and tapping in 15 pars until a messy three-putt bogey to end his tournament. His 16'11" birdie at the par-4 14th was the highlight. By virtue of his finish, the 26-year-old has qualified for his first Open Championship. The top four inside the top 12 and ties at Greenbrier not otherwise exempt into the major earned exemptions. George McNeill finished alone in second place for the first berth. Whether he accepts remains unknown since his sister died today. Five of the seven at T4 were previously ineligible, so the Official World Golf Ranking was used as the tiebreaker. Chris Stroud (85th) will also make his debut in the major. Tringale ranks 121st, while Billy Hurley III (197th) wrapped up the last tee time available today, shutting out Bud Cauley (295th) and Will Wilcox (331st).

Blake Adams alerted his followers on Twitter today that he will have surgery to replace his hip this week.

Adams wrote, "Scheduled for total hip replacement surgery in the AM. Dr Matta (replaced Tom Watson's) is my surgeon. I will be back on Tour soon #painfree" Given the timing of the tweet, it's probable that surgery is on Wednesday, but that's just a detail. We'll also have to assume that it's his left hip that will be replaced. While he's only 38 years of age, it's been no secret for a while that this was going to occur at some point. He underwent major surgery on the same joint in early 2013. Adams returned to competition at the season-opening Frys.com Open and made eight starts. He cashed in five. He still has 16 starts remaining on a Major Medical Extension to earn $497,044 or 277.9 FedExCup points and retain status.

Jason Allred did it again in today's open qualifier for the RBC Canadian Open, posting 6-under-par 34-32=66 at St. Raphael Golf Club in Île Bizard, Quebec, good for medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

This is the fourth time this season that the non-member has four-spotted into a PGA TOUR event (Northern Trust, HP Byron Nelson, Travelers). With 236 FedExCup points and $508,227, he'd rank a respective 163rd and 134th among members, so Allred remains close to attaining fully exempt status for 2014-15. Today he buried an eagle (at the par-5 eighth hole) and six birdies to offset two bogeys. Ben Silverman spun a bogey-free, 5-under 34-33=67 with five birdies to share runner-up honors with Kevin Stinson, who also went bogey-free, 5-under 33-34=67 with five birdies. Robbie Greenwell was the third to finish T2 at 5-under 35-32=67 with seven birdies against two bogeys. All three Canadians will be making their PGA TOUR debut. The field at Royal Montreal Golf Club is now complete at 156.

Steve Wheatcroft crafted a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Albertsons Boise Open and survived a playoff against Steven Alker with a birdie on the first playoff hole for his second Web.com Tour win.

Wheatcroft circled six birdies and an eagle and squared two bogeys on his final navigation of Hillcrest CC. For the tournament, he bagged 27 birdies which was tops for the week and a big reason why he reached 24-under 260. He also ranked first in putting average, with a 1.566 clip. He entered the week 89th on the Web.com Tour money list, but jumps to 11th and virtually guarantees his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card with this victory.

Gary Woodland is one of 10 golfers to earn an exemption into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational on July 31-Aug. 3.

The top 50 in the Official World Golf Ranking at the conclusion of this weekend's action gained entry into the final of four WGCs on the season. (The Web.com Tour's Albertsons Boise Open scheduled to finish later today will not have an impact.) Woodland is 47th in the updated OWGR to secure his first start at Firestone since his debut in 2011. He shared 39th place at Royal Liverpool today. The following nine inside the top 50 weren't previously exempt, but will now join Woodland in Akron: Jim Furyk (10th), Rickie Fowler (18th), Ian Poulter (28th), Jamie Donaldson (32nd), Kevin Na (37th), Francesco Molinari (42nd), Jonas Blixt (45th), Joost Luiten (46th) and Harris English (48th). Everyone in next week's top 50 of the OWGR will also gain entry.

Rickie Fowler turned in a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Open Championship but finished in a tie for second, two strokes behind Rory McIlroy.

Fowler played in the final pairing with the eventual winner, and did everything he could to chase the Ulsterman down. The American picked up an early birdie at the par-4 second hole, and then added birdies at the par-5 10th, par-3 15th, par-5 16th and par-5 18th to finish at 15-under 273. He's turning into quite the magician at the majors, sharing second at the U.S. Open last month and cracking the top five at the Masters back in April. This will also go a long way towards locking up a spot on Tom Watson's Ryder Cup team, as he ranked seventh before the week began and this was a double-point event. If any lesson has been learned, it is not to count out Fowler at Valhalla in the PGA Championship next month.

Sergio Garcia crafted a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of The Open Championship to share second with Rickie Fowler at 15-under 273.

While Garcia has suffered his share of heartache in the majors over the years, his lap around Royal Liverpool on Sunday was anything but a choke job. He circled five birdies and an eagle, with his only bogey coming at the par-3 13th when he tried to get a little too cute when taking on a bunker shot. The seven-shot deficit he faced when play began was just too much to overcome, as Rory McIlroy was able to claim his third major championship with a pedestrian 71 in the final round. The Spaniard can hold his head high knowing he gave it his best in the finale.
Jul 20 - 1:33 PM

Rory McIlroy posted a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the final round of The 143rd Open Championship to claim his first Claret Jug at 17-under 271.

McIlroy is the seventh player to go wire-to-wire without ever sharing the overnight lead in this event. His final navigation of Royal Liverpool was a modest one compared to many of the low rounds on Sunday. He circled four birdies and gave back a trio of bogeys, but it was good enough to place him two strokes clear of Sergio Garcia and Rickie Fowler. This is the Ulsterman's first win in a PGA TOUR-sanctioned event since the 2012 BMW Championship at Crooked Stick. With it, he is expected to move to second in the Official World Golf Ranking. It's hard to imagine that the hype leading up to the 2015 Masters will be anything short of a fever pitch as he attempts to close out the career Grand Slam.

Jim Furyk lit up Royal Liverpool for a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of The Open Championship to secure a fourth-place finish and a return trip to the Masters.

Furyk picked up an eagle on the par-5 fifth, nearly jarring it for an albatross, and then added five birdies on the back nine at Hoylake. His 13-under 275 was good for the clubhouse lead at the time, but he finished four strokes adrift of champion Rory McIlroy. The top four and ties at Royal Liverpool earned exemptions into the 2015 Masters. The others are McIlroy (winner), Rickie Fowler (T2) and Sergio Garcia (T2). This could prove to be a critical week for Furyk's Ryder Cup chances as he entered the week sixth in the standings with double points being awarded for majors.
Jul 20 - 12:57 PM

Shane Lowry lit up Hoylake for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of The Open Championship to post 10-under 278, good for a share of ninth place.

Lowry was solid all day, picking up three birdies on the front nine and four more on the back. He held the clubhouse lead at the time he signed his card. This was the Irishman's third Open, having made the cut in each of his first two but failing to crack the top 30. He trended well into this event, with a T12 at the BMW International Open and a T4 at the Aberdeen Asset Management Scottish Open immediately prior to his trip to Royal Liverpool. His terrific finale clinched an exemption into next year's Open Championship at St. Andrews. The top 10 and ties receive automatic berths. The others: 1st--Rory McIlroy ... T2--Rickie Fowler; Sergio Garcia ... 4th--Jim Furyk ... T5--Marc Leishman; Adam Scott ... T7--Edoardo Molinari; Charl Schwartzel ... T9--Victor Dubuisson; Graeme McDowell.

Rory McIlroy toyed with the competition in the third round of The Open Championship, but pulled away late at Royal Liverpool for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 and a six-stroke lead.

McIlroy traded two birdies for two bogeys across his first 13 holes, and was joined briefly in the lead by Rickie Fowler. The Ulsterman stepped on the gas late, circling a birdie at the par-4 14th and eagles on the par-5 16th and par-5 18th holes despite a bogey at the par-4 17th. It all adds up to a 16-under 200 tally. In some ways, this tournament is starting to feel like Martin Kaymer's runaway at Pinehurst last month and is eerily similar to the fashion in which McIlroy earned his first two major championship titles in the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2012 PGA Championship. He will try and claim the third leg in his quest to complete the career grand slam on Sunday.

Brandt Jobe is listed in the published field of next week's Midwest Classic on the Web.com Tour.

We're at that time of the season when you'd expect guys out for an extended period of time to begin to trickle back inside the ropes. Jobe hasn't played anywhere since the Web.com Tour Championship last September. He underwent surgery on his left shoulder in November, but had expected to return to competition in January. He has conditional status on the PGA TOUR this season, so unless he makes a speedy return and cracks the top 125 in FedExCup points or earnings, he'll be armed with a Non-exempt Medical Extension in 2014-15. Of course, he could graduate from the Web.com Tour Finals and secure his card the new-fashioned way, in which instance the medical would act as an in-season goal for a promotion in status.
