Marc Warren arrived at the midpoint of The 143rd Open Championship in 5-under-par 71-68=139 and sits seven strokes off Rory McIlroy's commanding lead.

The Scot shared the 54-hole lead at last week's Scottish Open, but settled for outright third place. He brought his game to Hoylake this week where he's traded 11 birdies with six bogeys. It's his first payday in two appearances in this tournament, and it's a bit of a feel-good story since he failed to qualify for 10 consecutive years before cracking the field at Muirfield last year. Now, because inclement weather is expected to impact play on Saturday at Royal Liverpool, the R&A has made the unprecedented decision to send groups off split tees in the third round beginning at 9:00 a.m. local time.

Two-time champ Bubba Watson makes his way to Cromwell, Connecticut, for a 12th appearance at this week's Travelers Championship.

The big-hitting lefty missed the cut in his 2006 Travelers debut and also missed the cut last year. All nine of his other starts have produced top-40 finishes with six of those doubling as top 15s and two of those being wins. The 2010 victory was his first PGA TOUR title which is why he returns every year and said he'll remain to do so unless injuries prevent him from playing. Currently ranked 10th in the FedExCup standings and seventh in Ryder Cup Points, this week provides a good opportunity to pick up some extra insurance points in terms of helping him reach East Lake as well as Le Golf National.

World No. 1 amateur Doug Ghim will remove that (a) tag from his name as he preps for his professional debut at this week's Travelers Championship.

The Texas product joined fellow Longhorn Jordan Spieth for a practice round today. Not a bad practice partner, learning from the defending champ here at TPC River Highlands. Ghim earned medalist honors three times during his senior season. That was strong enough to move him into the No. 1 spot on the World Amateur Golf Rankings and also earn him the 2018 Ben Hogan Award, an honor that has recently been won by Maverick McNealy, Jon Rahm, Patrick Cantlay, Peter Uihlein, and Rickie Fowler, to name a few. With that kind of pedigree, the sky is the limit for this 22-year-old. Ghim made his PGA TOUR debut earlier this year with a T50 at the Masters and then missed the cut last week at the U.S. Open (playing both as an amateur). Gamers can take the wait-and-see approach but they should be ready to invest in long-term (and weekly) leagues at the first sign of success.

After a scintillating Sunday at Shinnecock Hills Tommy Fleetwood tees it up in the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof in Pulheim, Germany this week.

The Englishman arrives fresh from equalling the lowest final round in US Open history and, moreover, he did it when he knew it was looking like a title-tilting effort. That leads us to wonder how he will react? Will he fly high or feel something of an emotional slump? To throw further mud in the water he has his father on the bag rather than best friend Ian Finnis. That said, he was T6 here 12 months ago having been fourth at Erin Hills so it wouldn't need much more. And Niclas Fasth and Ernie Els have both won this event a week after contending the second major of the season. A poor course record (MC-T33-MC) but he had that ahead of wins in Abu Dhabi and Paris last year. Might be worth noting his first ET win was at Gleneagles, on a Jack Nicklaus design, as this week's track is.

Brooks Koepka has been given a pass on the Wednesday pro-am but he remains committed to the field for this week's Travelers Championship.

Golfers are obligated to show up for their pro-am duties but the PGA TOUR has given Koepka a pass to allow him to celebrate his U.S. Open victory, reported by George Savaricas of Golf Channel. Koepka won't get much pre-tournament prep this week but he does have a T51 and T9 already on his Travelers resume. Come off a grueling week where he battled Shinnecock Hills, taking on TPC River Highlands will likely be like taking the donut off a baseball bat. Gamers can still play the mental fatigue narrative if they'd like, but we should fully expect to see him give it a go this week in Cromwell, Connecticut.

Jordan Spieth went wire-to-wire in his 2017 Traveler Championship debut and he'll return this week in hopes of finding that same success at TPC River Highlands.

The Texas Longhorn finished T35 at the 2017 U.S. Open before arriving here and twirling a 7-under 63 in his first competitive round at TPC River Highlands. He kept his foot on the gas and eventually beat Daniel Berger in a playoff to hoist the hardware in his tournament debut. It helped kick-start his summer as he went wire-to-wire in his next event also, The Open Championship. This time around, Spieth arrives on the heels of back-to-back missed cuts. His two previous times playing after back-to-back MCs he posted top 15s. He has never missed three cuts in a row on the PGA TOUR. Gamers should expect a strong bounce-back effort from the Texan this week as he heads back to a course that he and his caddie claims to be "tailormade" for him.

Nick Hardy will peg it as a pro for the first time in his PGA TOUR career as he preps for this week's Travelers Championship.

The University of Illinois product ranks sixth in the latest Scratch Players World Amateur Ranking and 13th in the Sagarin/Golfweek rankings. Hardy was the Big Ten Player of the Year in 2018. He was the top finisher for Illinois in 8 of his 13 events played. That's impressive when you consider the strength of the squad that included Dylan Meyer who just flashed at the U.S. Open last week. Back to Hardy, he is 2-for-3 in his PGA TOUR career (as an amateur), finishing T52 at the 2015 U.S. Open and T55 at the 2017 John Deere Classic. Hardy made his professional debut two weeks ago at the Rust-Oleum Championship (Web.com Tour) and finished T33 by week's end. Gamers should watch Hardy very closely because he oozing with potential.

Chase Seiffert lapped the field at today's open qualifier for the Travelers Championship, tossing together a 9-under-par 33-30=63 to beat the next closest finishers by three strokes.

Low scores are pretty common for these Monday qualifiers but it's somewhat rare to see someone lap the field like this. The Florida State alum circled eight birdies and an eagle to offset a lone bogey. Seiffert is 3-for-4 in his PGA TOUR career including a T43 at this event last year (also cracked that field through Monday Q). The 26-year-old has made just one start during the 2018 calendar year, a T48 at the Rex Hospital Open (Web.com Tour). Three others punched their ticket at today's qualifier: James Driscoll, Andrew Svoboda, and Rick Lamb. They all posted rounds of 6-under 66 and then escaped a 4-for-3 playoff that included Peter Ballo.

Prior to the start of the week, Louis Oosthuizen has withdrawn from this week's Travelers Championship.

The South African hit a bit of a mid-season slump with back-to-back missed cuts at the Wells Fargo Championship and THE PLAYERS. He's responded with finishes of T5, T13, and T16 since then. That last one came at Shinnecock Hills last week so there is no reason to expect any injury here. These pre-tournament change of hearts happen all the time, but gamers should make sure they remove him from all weekly lineups.

Playing out of the final twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 43 Daniel Berger back-pedaled to a 3-over-par 37-36=73 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open, falling five places to a season-best T6 on 6-over 286, five back of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68, and dropping to 1-for-3 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

After opening with 76-71 and day-tying-low 66, the 25-year-old co-led with three others and found 12 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. He conjured two birdies at holes 5 and 10 (30'3"), overshadowed by five bogeys at 2, 3, 6, 15 and 17. The FSU product posted a commercial 1.909 putts per GIR with 32 total putts, but did knock home two par-savers from between 10 and 16 feet. For the week, he totaled 11 birdies against 15 bogeys and one double. This was Berger's fourth U.S. Open, third cash and first top 25. It was his 12th overall major, second top 25 and second top 10, bettering a T10 at the 2016 Masters. Berger improves to 13-for-16 on the season with eight top 25s and one top 10, brushing aside a pair of T11s.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 38 Tony Finau backed up with a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open, falling four spots to solo 5th on 5-over 285, four in arrears of overnight co-leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68, and drops to 0-for-1 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

This is a career best in nine majors for the 28-year-old, previously T10 two times, most recently at this year's Masters. It was his third U.S. Open, second top 25 (T14/2015) and first top 10. Playing out of the final twosome with Daniel Berger (73), it could've been a T3, but walked off with double bogey-6. After kicking off in 75-72 and day-tying-low 66, the Utahan co-led with three others and hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.727 putts per GIR with 30 total putts. He circled five birdies at holes 5, 8, 9 (16'2"), 11 (26'11") and 14, outbalanced by five bogeys at 2-4, 7, 12 (3-putt from 26'10"), and the double. For the week, Finau totaled 17 birdies, No. 1 in that stat, versus 14 bogeys and four doubles. He improves to 16-for-19 on the season with 12 top 25s and six top 10s, first individually since the Masters.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, overnight co-leader and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson birdied his final hole to salvage an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the 118th U.S. Open to finish up on 3-over 283, dipping two spots to solo 3rd, two shy of tying competitor and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 68.

The 33-year-old, who takes over the top spot in the FedExCup standings, was looking to become the first player ever to win a TOUR event and the U.S. Open the following week. He gave it a good run, leading or co-leading after each of the first three rounds. After opening in 69-67-77, the Coastal Carolina product co-led with three others, including Koepka. He hit 12 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR with 35 total putts. Johnson circled four birdies at holes 5, 8, 15 and 18 (from 12'11"), cancelled by four squares at 7, 11 (3-putt from 33'8"), 14 (3-putt from 72'9") and 17 (3-putt from 61'7"). For the week, he totaled 13 birdies against 14 bogeys and one double. This was Johnson's 11th U.S. Open, sixth top 25 and fifth top 10, first since his win in 2016. Overall, it was his 36th major, 20th top 25, three straight, and 15th top 10, second straight after T10 at this year's Masters.
