Ángel Cabrera withdrew from the 96th PGA Championship during his second round, citing a shoulder injury.

He was bothered by an injury to his left shoulder early in the year. The Argentine parred the par-3 11th hole before walking off Valhalla today. He was 4-over-par through 11 and 15-over through 29. It's the fifth time in 221 PGA TOUR starts that he's called it quits mid-tournament and the first time since last year's PGA Championship. He arrived in Louisville ranked 51st in the FedExCup standings.

Matthew Fitzpatrick cannot get enough of the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates; he posted a second round of 5-under-par 35-32=67 to total 10-under 134 and claim the 36-hole lead at the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai.

The Englishman completed a tenth consecutive under-par round on the Greg Norman design, a tenth circuit which has ended with him ranked inside the top ten and he now averages 68.20 per lap - a successful defense of his title is definitely on the cards. At No. 3 he rolled in a 30'0" par-breaker, negotiating a shoulder on the green with no fuss. He then reached the turn with a birdie-bogey duo at 7 and 8. The back nine saw more action, opening with a tick at ten. At 14 his 3-wood approach to the 626-yard par-5 chased up the green to kick-in range for eagle, at 15 his 18'0" birdie putt from off the green went in at pace, at 18 more red seemed unlikely but he drained from 20'0". He is one shot clear of Tyrrell Hatton with Julian Suri, Justin Rose and Kiradech Aphibarnrat T3 on 8-under. He's flying under the radar this week: "Everyone is focussed on the Race to Dubai," he said. "I've nothing to lose."

Past champion Chris Kirk coasted to a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-32=63 while facing Sea Island Golf Club’s Plantation Course during round one of The RSM Classic, breaking the course record while also giving him sole possession of the early clubhouse lead as play starts to wind down on Thursday afternoon.

Kirk hoisted the RSM trophy during the 2014 edition, back when the Seaside Course hosted by itself. The Georgia Bulldog clearly doesn't mind the Plantation Course being added to the rota as he just racked up seven birdies and a closing hole-out eagle while taking on the short, par-72 layout. Kirk pelted 14 greens in regulation today but it was his short game that separated him from the field. He needed just 23 swipes with the putter before his day was done. This is Kirk's lowest round recorded at the RSM and also eclipses Sung Kang's round of 64 last year to set the new course record at the Plantation Course. In addition to that, it is Kirk's lowest round since the 2017 OHL Classic at Mayakoba (R1; 8-under 63), which took place just over 12 months ago.

Abraham Ancer lasted just over 15 holes before calling it quits at The RSM Classic, he was 2-over thru 15 at the time of WD. There was no reason cited at the time of the withdraw.

Ancer entered the week fresh off a career-best T9 at the OHL Classic. Today, he split eight (of 12) fairways and landed nine (of 15) greens in regulation. Ancer was opening this week at the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club, the easier of the two-course rota, but he failed to take advantage of the scoring holes. First was the par-5 fourth hole where he swallowed a double bogey. Then, he settled for par at the eighth. Finally, he reached the third par 5 of his day and hit his tee shot into the native area. That is the final shot tracked for his round. There was no reason given for this WD, but we will update if that information becomes clear. Ancer started the fall in the fifth position on the Web.com Tour graduate reshuffle and he's set to fall at least five spots after this week when the first reshuffle takes place.

Continuing a strong run of recent play, Jason Kokrak led off The RSM Classic with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 while taking on the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club, placing him in an early share of the clubhouse lead.

The big hitter arrived with top 20s in three of his four starts this season and was T24 at the midpoint of his other start. Today, he took on the easier of the two layouts and took full advantage of the scoring opportunities. Kokrak pelted 17 greens in regulation and made sure he didn't waste his chances on the par 5s, circling birdies on 3-of-4. With a solid start under his belt, he can now put the driver away for most of round two as he takes on the Seaside Course next, a venue with just a pair of par 5s to manhandle. The Xavier product entered with a 4-for-5 record at this event with the clear highlight being a T10 during the 2014 edition.

Sam Horsfield smashed an imperious 8-under-par 30-33=63 to win European Tour Qualifying School Final Stage on 27-under 401, fully eight swings clear of the field at Lumine Golf Club in Tarragona, Spain after six gruelling days of action.

In truth there were few doubts that the 21-year-old Englishman, who has lived in Florida since the age of five, would gain a card on the final day. Could he convert the win however? He demolished any fears on that score with seven birdies in the first 11 holes (at 2, 5, 6, 7, 9, 10 and 11) before adding another at the last for good measure. His long-term mentor Ian Poulter tweeted: "I'm extremely impressed just like I was seven years ago with this young man @hr59sam. @EuropeanTour School is a daunting week. Many congratulations to now being employed and I hope you enjoy the new job. May you have a long and successful career mate." Six players shared second, but none were ever seriously threatening Horsfield's primacy.

The Englishman did not cite a reason for WD but less than 24 hours ago he posted the following on his social media channels, "Last event of the year this week here in Sea Island at @TheRSMClassic - let’s make it a good one!" We will update if any further news comes out. Donald was coming off a T32 in his latest start (Shriners Hospitals for Children Open).

Justin Rose's quest to top the 2017 Race to Dubai was given a boost after his superb first round 6-under-par 35-31=66 in the DP World Tour Championship on the Earth Course at the Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai left him T2, just one swing behind the leader Patrick Reed.

The Englishman trails his compatriot Tommy Fleetwood in the seasonal rankings and now leads the projected re-rank, but is concentrating on the tournament first and foremost - and he did so impressively. Moreover it was achieved in front of Fleetwood who could only manage a 1-over 73 of his own. Rose began quietly with birdies at 2 and 7, plus a bogey at the ninth. The back nine was spectacular however. He ticked 10 and 11 for a fine start, but then holed a greenside bunker shot at the 14th for an eagle-3. He very nearly holed from 25'0" on the 17th, but the ball pulled up an inch short. No matter, he clipped a sand wedge to kick-in range on the final hole. "Really happy with that as a start," he said. "Can't rely on comebacks like the last two wins, so glad to be up there already. Do I look ahead? I'm trying to keep the scenarios out of my head."

Matthew Fitzpatrick started his defense of the DP World Tour Championship title in bold fashion with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 first round on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, two shots back of the clubhouse pacesetter Patrick Reed.

The Englishman is in a fine run of form, winning the European Masters in September and not ending a week outside the top 15 since. Yet during that run his opening lap has been nothing better than solid, with last week's 70 for T10 the closest to the lead. If he was going to change that, it is not surprising he should do so at this course: this is his ninth lap on it and he has never ended one of them outside the top ten. He opened with four straight pars and then threw three birdies in before the turn (at 5, 8 and 9). The back nine saw even more pars to begin with (seven) before he sprinted home with ticks at 17 and 18. The former thanks to draining a putt from 30'0".

Patrick Reed blasted a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-31=65 in round one of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, a closing birdie giving him the clubhouse lead by a shot from Scott Hend.

It's a further stroke back to Alexander Bjork and Ryan Fox although some of the 60-man field are still playing the front nine. Reed set the new number after a blistering inward nine. He'd started fast with birdies at 1 and 2 but then had to settle for seven pars until the turn. He broke the sequence with a circle at 10 and then splashed further red numbers at 12, 15 and 17 to catch Hend. At the last, he laid up in two but than hoisted up a wedge to close ranged and tapped it in to take the lead on his own. Reed is playing the European Tour's season closer for just the second time but showed his liking for the Earth course when finishing T10 on debut in 2015. On that occasion, he also posted a 65 although that was on day two. He'd arrived in Dubai on the back of a missed cut in last week's OHL Classic in Mexico.

Scott Hend thrashed a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the first round of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, securing a one-shot clubhouse lead over Alexander Bjork.

The Aussie looked on target to match the tournament's lowest ever opening lap (Peter Hanson's 64 in 2011) after a red-hot run on the Earth course's back nine took him to 7-under after 17. But he swallowed his only bogey of the day on the par-5 18th to slip back and a birdie for playing partner Bjork allowed the Swede to cut his lead to just one. World No. 110 Hend had started the day in positive fashion with a circle at No. 1 and he splashed his second red number on the par-3 4th. After a run of five pars, he charged clear with five birdies in six holes from the 10th, a 15-foot birdie conversion at No. 15 taking him into a three-shot lead. Today's 66 beats his previous best round at the course by three shots.

Making his season debut, past champ and World No. 26 Kevin Kisner returns to Sea Island Golf Club for his seventh consecutive RSM Classic.

The Georgia alum, a pre-tourney 16/1 fave outright, is 4-for-6 at the RSM with three top 25s and two top 10s, both doubling as top 5s, highlighted by his first (of two) TOUR titles two years ago. At the 2016 edition, the first to utilize two courses, he was the 18- and 54-hole leader, winning by six in a tournament-record 22-under 260, and MC'd last year in his title defense. The 33-year-old finished a career-best 12th in the FedExCup standings last season with a career-high 12 top 25s among 25 cashes in 28 starts. He posted a career-high eight top 10s, five for top 5s, highlighted by his second title at the DEAN & DELUCA (as 36-hole leader). The South Carolinian, who trains at Sea Island, ended last season with a T3 at the TOUR Championship and went 2-0-2 in his Presidents Cup debut.
