Boo Weekley withdrew during his second round of the PGA Championship due to a shoulder injury.

Weekley walked off after hitting the green at the par-3 eighth hole. He was 1-over-par on the day but 10-over-par through 25 holes. He opened with an 80 that featured only one birdie against eight bogeys and a double. It's his second WD during a tournament this season (Humana) and eight career in 223 starts on the PGA TOUR. He started the week slotted 104th in the FedExCup standings. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Wyndham Championship.

Todd Lewis provided an update on Jason Day for the reporter's followers on Twitter today.

Lewis wrote, "Spoke to @JDayGolf about his vertigo. Diagnosed with viral infection that's attacking inner ear nerve. On meds and feels ready for @TheOpen." This was one of the suspected causes for Day's problem, but he couldn't pinpoint it. No doubt we'll learn more about his health as we get closer to the season's third major. Day survived the second round of the U.S. Open and finished T9. His best finish in four starts at The Open Championship is T30 in 2011 at Royal St. George's.

In a relatively small and definitively thin field at today's open qualifier at Pinnacle Country Club in Milan, Illinois, four golfers punched their tickets for a spot in this week's John Deere Classic.

Only 61 golfers submitted scores today. Joseph Juszczyk and Zach Steffen co-medaled with 6-under-par 66s. Juszczyk carded respective nines of 35 and 31 with an eagle-3 and seven birdies to cover three bogeys. Steffen shot 32-34 with seven birdies against just one bogey. Each will be making his PGA TOUR debut this week, as will Jeff Corr, who shared third place at 5-under 34-33=67 (six birdies, one bogey). He was matched by Chris Naegel (34-33; six birdies, one bogey), who four-spotted for the JDC in 2013 and open qualified at the Zurich Classic in New Orleans in late April, but missed the cut in both appearances. The field at TPC Deere Run is now complete at 156.

Rory McIlroy sustained a total rupture to a ligament in his left ankle while playing soccer with friends on Saturday, leaving his title defense at the Open Championship in doubt.

The Ulsterman has already pulled out of this week’s Scottish Open. He broke the news to his followers on Instagram. While McIlroy did not offer a timetable for a return to action, there has been no shortage of medical experts weighing in on his potential time on the shelf. Dr. James Gladstone, co-director of sports medicine at Mt. Sinai Hospital, explained on Golf Channel’s "Morning Drive" that a typical rehabilitation period is anywhere between 10 days and six weeks. The Open Championship tees off at St. Andrews on the Old Course in exactly 10 days. While it is expected that he will make every effort to defend his 2014 title, it is too early to know how his ankle will respond to treatment and his ultimate availability. We will continue to monitor the situation and update as relevant.

David Hearn crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to match Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb and Danny Lee's 13-under 267 total and then lost on the second playoff hole to Lee.

Hearn came to the 18th hole needing birdie to win in regulation but missed from 12'3", settling for his second career playoff appearance (loss 2013 John Deere Classic). The Canadian matched Lee's birdie on the first playoff hole (par-3 18th), calmly draining nearly the exact same putt that would have won it for him in regular time, thereby eliminating Kisner and Streb. The 36-year-old made a mess of the second sudden-death hole however (par-5 17th), opening the door for Lee to take the title with par. Hearn began the day at 10-under (T5) and one shot off the 54-hole lead. He outbalanced two bogeys with five birdies at Nos. 4, 7, 10, 13 and 16, concluding the week first in strokes gained: putting, and T1 in strokes gained: total. The 36-year-old's runner-up pushed aside his previous season-best T6 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans as well as a personal-best T12 at the 2012 Greenbrier.
Jul 5 - 7:52 PM

Abraham Ancer posted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Nova Scotia Open and survived a playoff against Bronson Burgoon to capture his first career Web.com Tour win in just his 18th attempt.

Acner finished the week at 13-under 271 and moves from 39th to fourth on the Web.com Tour money list. That will assure him of a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card. He was lucky just to earn a spot in the playoff, as he had to birdie the par-4 18th just to join the fun. He repeated the feat in the first playoff hole, ousting Burgoon with the birdie. Ancer had four birdies on his card in regulation to go with a long bogey at Ashburn GC. He turned pro in 2013 after a collegiate career at Oklahoma, so his imminent ascent to the PGA TOUR via the Web.com Tour at the end of the season has taken very little time.
Jul 5 - 6:23 PM

Greg Owen capped his week at The Old White TPC with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 269, good for an exemption into The Open Championship.

Owen started the day outside the top 10, and then traded five birdies with two bogeys. He hit 17 greens in regulation, failed to salvage par on the other hole and added a three-putt bogey at the par-3 eighth hole. The top four, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 12 and ties today punched tickets to St. Andrews. The Englishman was one of five tied for sixth place not already exempt, but after David Hearn (T1) and Danny Lee (T1) secured the first two spots, Owen wrangled his for having the second-best Official World Golf Ranking (194th). James Hahn (T6) is 106th, so he received the other berth. The trio that failed to collect consisted of Bryce Molder (248th), Andres Romero (315th) and Chad Collins (350th). Of today's qualifiers, only Owen (seven appearances) and Hearn (one appearance) have competed in the season's third major.
Jul 5 - 6:07 PM

Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to match Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb and David Hearn at 13-under 267, and then won with par on the second playoff hole.

Like Kisner and Hearn, Lee had an outside chance to win in regulation at the last, but missed a 20-footer. The eventual champ exchanged birdies with Hearn on the first playoff hole (par-3 18th) to eliminate Kisner and Streb. Hearn made a mess of the second playoff hole (par-5 17th), opening the door for Lee to capture his first PGA TOUR title (95th career start as a pro). Lee began the day at 10-under, one swing back. On his round, he hit 13 greens and registered 1.692 putts per GIR, leading the field in that stat. Interestingly, he never joined the lead until circling his fourth birdie of the day at the 17th. In his previous two appearances at Greenbrier, Lee missed the cut in 2012 and finished T16 in 2014. In addition to full status on the PGA TOUR through 2016-17, he's now exempt into the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship this summer. Of course, he also collected a berth into next week's Open Championship.
Jul 5 - 5:47 PM

Robert Streb navigated the final round of The Greenbrier Classic in 5-under-par 33-32=65 to match Kevin Kisner, Danny Lee and David Hearn at 13-under 267 and then was eliminated on the first playoff hole by eventual champion Lee.

Streb, a playoff winner at the McGladrey Classic in October, began his final frame at 8-under (T12) and three shots adrift. He outpaced one bogey with two birdies on his outward nine to turn 1-under. The story line here is Streb broke his putter walking off the ninth green after tossing it to his caddie, it hit the bag and the head fell off. He made five birdies using his 56-degree wedge on his homeward half, circling par breakers at Nos. 10, 11, 13, 16. After squaring bogey at the par-5 17th, three-putting (or is that three-wedging) from just over 23 feet, Streb came to the 18th needing birdie to join the playoff and he delivered. The 28-year-old, flew the green on the first playoff hole (par-3 18th) and along with Kisner, was eliminated by matching birdies from Hearn and Lee. Streb's previous best at The Old White TPC in two prior appearances was T41 in 2013.
Jul 5 - 5:21 PM

Kevin Kisner hung up a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of The Greenbrier Classic to put 13-under 267 on the board and then was eliminated on the first hole of sudden death by eventual champion Danny Lee.

Kisner, twice a runner-up in 2015 already, missed a 16'8" birdie chance at the last to win in regulation and would subsequently be involved in a four-man playoff with Robert Streb, Danny Lee and David Hearn to decide the champion. Kisner airmailed the first playoff hole (par-3 18th) and took several swipes to reach the green. Lee and Hearn matched birdies to eliminate Kisner and Streb. Kisner began his final frame at 7-under (T17) and four strokes back. He circled seven par breakers on the round, joining the lead at 12-under after birdie on the 15th (his sixth of the day) and taking the outright lead at the 17th rolling in his longest conversion from 15 feet 10 inches. Kisner concluded the tournament at a cumulative 9.389 strokes gained: total, T1 in that stat on the week. The 31-year-old, who hadn't made the weekend in three prior Greenbrier appearances, adds his third runner-up finish of the season and is still looking for his first PGA TOUR title (97th career start).
Jul 5 - 4:21 PM

Overnight leader Jaco Van Zyl couldn't convert on victory at the Open de France in Paris, but he still collected an exemption into The Open Championship.

The top three inside the top 10 and ties at Le Golf National in Paris not otherwise exempt into the season's third major received tee times at St. Andrews on July 16. Van Zyl went 0-for-12 in scoring opportunities today and squared two bogeys to post 8-under 276, good for third place five strokes off Bernd Wiesberger's winning pace. The South African has never competed in an Open Championship. James Morrison also earned a berth as the runner-up today. The Englishman tied for 23rd in his only Open appearance in 2012. Alone in fifth place at 5-under 279, Rafa Cabrera-Bello gobbled up the final exemption. The Spaniard will be making his fourth consecutive appearance in his continent's major.
Jul 5 - 3:07 PM

With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's final round of the Open de France to post 13-under 271, Bernd Wiesberger recorded a three-stroke victory over James Morrison.

Starting the finale three strokes off Jaco Van Zyl's 54-hole lead, Wiesberger played in the penultimate pairing at Le Golf National in Paris today. The Austrian went 4-for-4 in scrambling and connected for six birdies, five of which in a six-hole stretch to conclude his outward nine. A walk-off birdie at the par-4 18th merely established the margin of victory. "It's been a great first half of the year for me so far," said Wiesberger, who began 2015 with four straight top-six finishes and added a co-runner-up in Ireland in late May. "I've had a lot of great success but just couldn't pull it quite off. To stand here with the trophy right now, it's pretty sweet." Van Zyl finished alone in third place five swings back of the champ. This is Wiesberger's third European Tour victory. It exempts him into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational where he hasn't competed since his debut in 2012.
