Justin Hicks finished strong at the RBC Canadian Open with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to post 13-under 267, four strokes adrift of champion Tim Clark.

Hicks got back on track today after a slight setback in the third round. He had his A-game from the beginning, rolling in back-to-back birdies from outside nine feet on the second and third holes. He would tally five more birdies, including a pair from 13-16 feet at Nos. 15 and 17, while giving just one back (at the par-3 13th). While he didn't win, Hicks' career-tying low yielded his career-low finish on the PGA TOUR.

Simon Dyson toured the tougher East Course in 5-under-par 33-34=67 to be one of three early clubhouse leaders on day two of the Joburg Open.

The Englishman's impressive lap of Royal Johannesburg & Kensington's tougher track elevated him to 11-under 132 at the midpoint. He's currently tied at the top with home South African duo Garth Mulroy and Tjaart Van Der Walt. Dyson opened with a birdie and reeled off three on the spin at 6, 7 and 8. Another par breaker at 10 was wiped out at 12 with his only bogey of the day but he found a final birdie at 17 to assume the joint lead. Dyson's 67 followed on from his 65 at the easier West Course on Thursday. The final two rounds are played on the East so Dyson is in good shape having shown today that he can shoot low there.

Chris Stroud withdrew from The Honda Classic following his opening round.

Stroud turned in a 10-over-par 41-39=80 before calling it quits. He erased one birdie (from 23-and-a-half feet at the par-4 first hole, his 10th of the round) with five bogeys and three doubles. It's his tenth withdrawal in 226 career PGA TOUR starts. It also ends six consecutive paydays at PGA National. Today's aggregate is his highest since a second-round 81 at the 2012 PGA Championship. If an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you.

Jim Herman turned in a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of The Honda Classic to assume sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

The Web.com Tour Finals grad was one of the five bounced from the field when the second reshuffle of the season occurred after last week's Northern Trust Open, so perhaps he's connected with a little motivation given that midseason plight. He went 4-for-4 in scrambling at PGA National today, a slate protected with a zero-putt five-yarder for par at the par-4 11th hole. His longest of five birdies traveled 34'8" at the par-4 16th.

Mark Hubbard was disqualified from The Honda Classic after his opening round because he didn't register for the tournament.

Details on this procedure are likely to be shared later, but the rookie was a late entrant when Louis Oosthuizen withdrew this morning. Hubbard went out and shot 4-over-par 37-37=74 with three birdies, four bogeys and a triple (at par-4 sixth hole) before the decision was handed down. While he has a little fantasy value, it's a real blow to his potential to put up a payday. Of course, he had nothing to lose anyway given the late call to play, but it's a lesson learned nonetheless.

Andrew Svoboda has been removed from the published field of this week's Honda Classic.

Svoboda was scheduled to go off the first hole at PGA National's Champion Course at 11:55 a.m. ET. He was a late WD prior to his lid-lifter of the Humana Challenge five weeks ago, but he's played thrice since. He cashed in all three with a T17 at the WM Phoenix Open as the highlight. Svoboda sits 72nd in the FedExCup standings, so he can afford this week off. It'll give him the opportunity to attend his induction into the Athletics Hall of Fame at St. John's University on Saturday morning.

Mike Weir withdrew from The Honda Classic during his opening round.

His right elbow just wasn't ready. The lefty sprayed his tee ball at the par-4 11th well left of the fairway before calling it quits. He was 6-over-par through 10 holes with one birdie, three bogeys and two doubles. Golf writer Lorne Rubenstein was walking with Weir, who told Rubenstein, "I'm not going to hit another ball until I get this figured out. ... "I can't swing the way I want to. I like to have a cup in my right wrist, and I can't do that." There is no timetable for recovery and treatment. While all of this happened this morning, Weir would need to make a significant turnaround to warrant our attention in any format in the future.

World No. 1555 Nic Henning is the surprise name at the top of the Joburg Open leaderboard after day one following a 9-under-par 29-33=62.

The South African took advantage of his only round at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington's easier West Course to grab a one-shot lead over Belgian Thomas Pieters and compatriots Titch Moore and Tjaart Van Der Walt. He now has three rounds at the tougher par 72 East to try and show that this wasn't a flash in the pan. To say his 62 came out of the blue is an understatement. Henning has missed 16 of his last 17 cuts worldwide -- or 41 of the last 47 if you want even more evidence of long-term decline - and hasn't managed a top 20 since 2010. Henning's outward 29, which featured five birdies and an eagle, was the lowest front nine on the European Tour this season and he added further par breakers at 15 and 16 to take sole possession of the lead.

Louis Oosthuizen withdrew prior to today's opening round of The Honda Classic due to neck spasms, according to Alex Miceli of Golfweek.com.

This was the fear, of course. He stepped out early from a commitment to the Omega Dubai Desert Classic a month ago due to his recurring back injury. The South African is exempt into next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, but shouldn't be relied upon in any format.

JB Hansen recorded the lowest nine-hole score of the 2015 European Tour season by coming home in 28 on day one of the Joburg Open.

The young Dane bettered the previous mark of 30 by two shots as he returned a 6-under-par 37-28=65 on Royal Johannesburg & Kensington’s West Course, the easier of the two layouts. The first half of Hansen's morning round didn't hint at what was to come as he squared two bogeys against a single birdie to be out in 1-over. But a birdie at 10 proved the catalyst for a 7-under back nine as he registered five birdies and an eagle-3 at the 15th. That burst put him him just two shots behind the early clubhouse lead of Titch Moore.

Highlighted by a hole-in-one at the fifth, Titch Moore posted an 8-under-par 30-33=63 to post the early clubhouse lead at the Joburg Open.

The South African's flying start came on Johannesburg & Kensington’s West Course, the easier of the two layouts used over the first two days before the East takes over on the weekend. Moore was 5-under after only five holes. He birdied 1, 2 and 4 and then holed his sand iron from 108 yards at 5 for an ace. The nine-time Sunshine Tour winner added a birdie at 9 to be out in just 30 and recorded a further pair of par breakers at 15 and 17 to set the early target. Today's round was hard to see coming. Not only has he missed his last three cuts, the 39-year-old has failed to cash in seven of his eight appearances in this event.

Roberto Castro survived a 5-for-2 playoff in the open qualifier for this week's Honda Classic.

Castro turned in a 65 at Mayacoo Lakes Country Club in West Palm Beach, Florida, but needed extra holes to secure his berth into the field at PGA National come Thursday. He's 3-for-4 on the PGA TOUR this season, but hasn't finished inside the top 55. Saddled with conditional status, this week's start is a real bonus. Wes Homan also escaped the playoff. The PGA TOUR Canada member tied for 56th in his debut on the PGA TOUR at the Shriners in the fall. Tim Petrovic was the medalist at Mayacoo Lakes with a 63. The 48-year-old has Past Champion status this season. In his only other action in 2014-15, he placed T35 at the Sanderson Farms. With a 64, Jhared Hack took runner-up honors in the four-spotter. The regular on the PGA TOUR-Latinoamérica will be making his PGA TOUR debut this week. The field for The Honda Classic is now complete at 144.
