The opening round of the Quicken Loans National was halted by inclement weather at 12:50 p.m. ET. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 2:25 p.m. Tee times for the remainder of the day have been delayed 90 minutes.

Tournament host Tiger Woods was on the first tee with playing partners Bill Haas and Nick Watney when the horn sounded. They were scheduled to begin at 12:55 p.m. The delay isn't too surprising as the threat for rain and thunderstorms was most prevalent beginning this afternoon. A line of storms is sweeping through the area right now and it's growing with the midday heating. Golfers were removed from the course as a precaution.

Steve Wheatcroft hung up a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of the Quicken Loans National, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

His lead won't hold, but it lays the latest brick in his quest to snipe his first victory on the PGA TOUR. This is his 104th start. Wheatcroft hit only 11 greens in regulation, but he wrangled three birdies on each nine. His most impressive rolled nearly 33 feet for a 3 at the second hole. His closest brush with bogey occurred at the par-4 17th where he pulled his approach well left of the green but eventually coaxed a par try in from 16'6". At last check, Wheatcroft ranked third in the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 3.415. Incidentally, lift, clean and place is in effect due to the threat of today's inclement weather.

Richie Ramsay produced a superb fightback to beat India's Shiv Kapur by 1 hole in the opening round of the inaugural Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Matchplay.

Despite holding the course record at Murcar Links GC and growing up near the Aberdeen venue, Ramsay found himself three down to Kapur after losing the 4th, 5th and 7th. But the Scot clawed his way back into the match with winning birdies at the 8th and 11th before making it all square with a par at the 14th. After trading pars at the 15th and 16th, Ramsay edged in front for the first time with a birdie at the 17th and closed out victory with a 20-footer for another at the par-4 18th after Kapur had fired his approach to eight feet. The Aberdeen native, who will take on Italy's Edoardo Molinari (a 5&4 winner over Magnus A Carlsson) in the last 32, said, "The most pleasing thing is playing well under pressure. There is no better feeling."

As a result of recently breaking his hand, Chris Kirk will not compete in next week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

This was expected when Kirk proclaimed on Twitter on July 15 that he was "unlikely" to peg it at both Firestone next week and Whistling Straits for the PGA Championship on Aug. 13-16. He's 23rd in the FedExCup standings.

Rory McIlroy made official today that he will not return to competition at next week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational where he is the defending champion.

He's still on the mend from rupturing a ligament in his left ankle. "Unfortunately, I will not be defending my World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational title," he said McIlroy. "Best of luck to all the competitors, and I look forward to returning to Firestone in 2016." The PGA Championship is the week after, so don't hold your breath for him to defend that title, either. He has no reason to rush his recovery.

In his press conference today for the Quicken Loans National, Billy Hurley III announced that the whereabouts of his father, Willard, are unknown.

The following is an excerpt courtesy of USATODAY.com. Hurley III said, "Last Sunday, nine days ago, my dad took some clothes, he took some cash, he got in his truck and drove away and no one has heard from him since. So he’s been gone about nine days, I guess. No one really knows why. It’s complete speculation as to why he left. He’s been married to my mom for 30-plus years. You know, they still live in the house that I grew up in in Leesburg and I’m just hoping that there’s a story that maybe he goes to PGATOUR.com to check my tee time or check my score and sees this and understands that dad, we love you and we want you to come home." Hurley III is scheduled to go off the 10th tee at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club at 7:37 a.m. ET. He's outside the top 130 in both FedExCup points and earnings, so the timing of this emotional turmoil is terrible as it concerns his objective to retain status on the PGA TOUR, but he's still planning on competing.

Scott Stallings will have his tonsils removed and undergo surgery for a deviated septum on Tuesday.

The 30-year-old is currently waiting out a 90-day suspension for violating the PGA TOUR's anti-doping policy. Tuesday's surgery is expected to remedy complications for which he took DHEA, which is on the banned list. "Right now, my health is my No. 1 priority," he said. "I should be down for about a week, but I’ll be ready to go in October. I just want to get healthy." Stallings' suspension will conclude in time for him to compete in the season-opening Frys.com Open on Oct. 15-18. He's fully exempt through 2015-16.

Patrick Rodgers has crashed the field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Rodgers was given a sponsor exemption to compete. It'll be the 15th start of the season for the PGA TOUR rookie with Special Temporary Membership. He'd rank 122nd in the FedExCup standings among members. He's also 17th on the Web.com Tour money list. If he finishes inside the top 125 with non-member FedExCup points on the PGA TOUR and inside the top 25 in earnings on the Web.com Tour, Rodgers will be fully exempt via the format on the PGA TOUR next season and one less card will be available at the Web.com Tour Finals. If he achieves the double, he'll be the first since the new qualifying process was created. It's also relevant to add that all golfers who are already fully exempt for the following season on the PGA TOUR are no longer allowed to participate in the Web.com Tour Finals.

Overnight leader David Hearn settled for an even-par 35-37=72 in the finale of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude at 15-under 273, good for solo third and two shots back of champion Jason Day.

Hearn began his final round at 15-under and a two-stroke advantage over Day and playing partner Bubba Watson. Looking to become the first Canadian to win the RBC in 61 years (Pat Fletcher/1954), he opened birdie-birdie despite wildly missing his first two fairways. The storybook beginning ended abruptly with bogey on the third after missing the fairway for a third consecutive hole. After pars on Nos. 4-6, Hearn lost the lead (to Day) after squaring his second bogey on seven. The 36-year-old had three legit chances to respond on Nos. 8, 10 and 11, each from inside 15 feet, but missed them all. He exchanged one last birdie (at 13) with a third bogey at 12 to play his last seven holes in even, opening the door for Day. Hearn landed just seven (of 14) fairways, hit 12 greens in regulation, and after leading the field in strokes gained: putting thru three rounds, ended with a -0.705 on Sunday. His consolation is a career-best finish in 13 Canadian Opens, brushing aside a T20 in 2006.

RBC Ambassador Jason Day hung up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude his third appearance in the tournament at 17-under 271, good for a one-shot victory over Bubba Watson.

Day began his final frame at 13-under and two shots back of 54-hole leader David Hearn. After birdie at the par-5 second, a missed birdie on the third from 5'1", and a conversion on the fifth from 8'4", the Australian pulled to within one of Hearn. Day circled another on seven from 7'8", pushing his total to 16-under and the outright lead. It was short-lived, however, as he squared consecutive bogeys at eight and nine. After six consecutive pars on Nos. 10-15, the 27-year-old tied the lead with birdie at 16 and took sole possession with birdie on 17 from outside 11 feet. Day took it to the bank by drilling his sixth birdie of the day on the last from 21'10" for the dramatic birdie-birdie-birdie finish. This is his fourth PGA TOUR title in 165 career events and second of the season on 14 starts (Farmers Insurance Open).
