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.

This is the 24-year-old's third Travelers after T47 in 2016 and T25 last year (67-72-66-70). He checks in off a T25 at the U.S. Open and a playoff win at the Memorial as 54-hole leader.

After a season-low 63 in R1, the 24-year-old co-led with Zach Johnson, his second lead/co-lead of the season after any round in 17 starts (R1/Masters). He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.985 strokes off-the-tee and 1.044 around-the-green.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 28 Brian Harman tossed up a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to reach 10-under 130, up two places on the day and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The 31-year-old improved to 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.114 strokes around-the-green but gaining 0.866 on approach. He squared three bogey-5s at 10, 15 (tee ball in the water) and 17 (3-putt from 16'9"), offset by seven birdies at 13, 14, 16, 1, 4, 6 and 7, four from between 13 and 26 feet.

Scott Hend hoisted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to claim the clubhouse lead on 6-under 138 in the BMW International Open at Golf Club Gut Larchenhof, two clear of Sebastian Gros after the morning wave completed their work.

The Aussie had given us a big clue that he was running into form, arriving in Germany off a run of form that read: MC-T14-T6. He needed to rediscover his mojo, however, given that he was lacking a European Tour top 20 since losing a play-off at Crans in September (a result he admits knocked his confidence, being a second such result in the same tournament in two years). On Friday he started from the tenth and did so with a bogey-5, but thereafter played superb golf to the turn, ticking the 12th and 17th, whilst making eagle-3 at the 519-yard par-5 15th. The front nine witnessed seven straight pars so he looked headed for a share of the lead, but he then circled the eighth and ninth to ease clear.

World No. 7 Rory McIlroy twirled a season-tying-low, 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, currently T3 and one adrift of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Jordan Spieth.

This is the 29-year-old's second appearance after T17 last year (67-73-70-64). He checks in off a missed cut at the U.S. Open, his third straight MC at the U.S. Open, and with three top 10s this season in 11 starts, highlighted by his come-from-behind win at Bay Hill, where he closed with 8-under 64. In total, this is the Ulsterman's third 64 this season (Memorial/R3). On 10 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, he walked off with bogey-5 at 18 (failed scramble), preceded by seven birdies at 1, 2, 4, 6 and 13-15, all from inside of 11 feet. The Florida resident recorded 1.588 putts per GIR and 0.069 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. He's currently No. 1 in GIR and SG: Off-the-Tee (2.147).

Defending champ and World No. 5 Jordan Spieth spun a season-low, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, good for a share of the clubhouse lead with Zach Johnson.

The Texan won on debut last year (playoff) where led after each of the first three rounds before being caught by Daniel Berger. This is his 17th start of the season, entering off back-to-back missed cuts, and hasn't had a top 20 since solo 3rd at the Masters seven starts ago, where he closed with a previous-season-best 64.

This is the 31-year-old's eighth Travelers with two prior top 25s and one top 10, a solo 3rd in 2015 as 54-hole leader (66-65-65-69). This is his best lap at TPC River Highlands (in 27 rounds), previously 65 three times. The Georgia alum entered this week off a T36 at the U.S. Open and with seven top 10s in 17 starts, which is tied second behind season-leader Dustin Johnson's eight.

World No. 54 Zach Johnson, who arrived off a T12 at the U.S. Open, painted a 7-under-par 33-30=63 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, good for the clubhouse lead out of the morning wave. UPDATE: With R1 completed, Johnson co-leads with defending champ Jordan Spieth, his 10th 18-hole lead/co-lead in 378 events, previously 1-for-9 converting (2012 Crowne Plaza Invitational).

The 42-year-old ties his season low in 58 rounds (Sony Open/R1). At the Sony, he was a first-round co-leader, eventually finishing T14 (63-67-71-67). This is his 13th Travelers with five prior top 25s among nine cashes and two top 10s, including a best of T3 on debut in 2004. The Drake alum also matched his best at TPC River Highlands (in 43 rounds), shot in R2 in 2005 (finished T42). On 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he gained 2.454 strokes approaching and 1.632 around-the-green.
