Ryuji Imada scratched out a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the Wyndham Championship, good for outright possession of the early clubhouse lead.

Imada went out in the second threesome off the first tee at Sedgefield today and promptly buried a birdie from 10'3" at the par-4 opener. He'd hit only 10 greens in regulation during his walk, but suffered just one bogey after missing the green well left at the par-3 seventh. Elsewhere, he added four birdies, including rolls of 13'11" and 14'3" at Nos. 3 and 16, respectively. At 195th in the FedExCup standings upon arrival, he'd probably need to win to qualify for the Playoffs, but today all but secured a berth in the Web.com Tour Finals, which was the primary objective.

With birdies at three of his final four holes, Brandon Stone completed a 3-under-par 34-34=66 and moved into a tie for the lead after 36 holes of the 100th Open de France.

After a 69 on day one, Stone struggled to get it going on Friday with 12 pars, a birdie and a bogey in his opening 14 holes. But he got under par for the round with a birdie at 6 and added further circles at 7 and 9 to finish at 5-under 137 and join Rory McIlroy, Mikko Ilonen and Thongchai Jaidee in T1. The young South African missed the cut at Le Golf National last year after shooting 72-77 but it's been a different story so far this week as he rides the confidence gained from a win and two second places in the first four months of 2016. He'll play with McIlroy in round three.

Rory McIlroy justified his star billing at the 100th Open de France by moving into a share of the halfway lead after hoisting up a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in round two.

For 17 holes, the Northern Irishman was faultless as he circled birdies at 3, 6, 7, 9, 13 and 15 to surge to the top of the leaderboard on his own. But he found water off the tee at 18 and the resultant bogey saw him slip back into a share of the lead on 5-under 137. He sits alongside Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee, Finland's Mikko Ilonen and South African Brandon Stone. Today's 66 from McIlroy is the joint low round of the week so far.

Mikko Ilonen traded birdies and bogeys in compiling a 3-under-par round of 34-34=68 which left him on 5-under 137 for the week and co-leading the 100th Open de France in the clubhouse after the morning wave completed their rounds.

The Finn is tied at the top alongside Thailand's Thongchai Jaidee after ticking 5 birdies and crossing 2 bogeys in his second round. When the morning starters had completed their laps of the course Ilonen was the only golfer to have signed for two sub-70 scores. It was a stunning effort Friday given that he found just 3 fairways from the tee, but the rest of his game was tidy enough to make up for this failing. His position of prominence is even more extraordinary when you consider that he has doubled his number of sub-70 rounds on the Albatros course (previously 2 in 26) and has never finished higher than T45 in 8 visits. He and Jaidee are 2 clear of the field.

Camilo Villegas vaulted up the leaderboard with 14 points during the opening round of the Barracuda Championship, signing for a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-35=65 to sit one point off the early pacesetter Martin Laird.

The Colombian opened the week outside the FedExCup Playoff bubble at 142nd in the standings. A good week would go a long way and he's off to a good start so far. Villegas split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation. That steady ball-striking was crucial in keeping his card blemish-free, but it was the flat stick that yielded all the scoring. Villegas needed just 24 putts to make his way around Montrêux Golf and Country Club, converting three times from outside 11 feet. He also holed out from off the green (78 feet) for birdie at the par-4 fifth hole. This marks his seventh career round at Montrêux, and easily the best on his resume (69/R3 2013).

Davis Love III withdrew from the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational following an 8-over-par 37-41=78 opening round. Update: Love III announced he will be out for the remainder of the season as he opts for hip surgery to repair a torn left hip labrum.

DL3 was making his first start at Firestone Country Club since 2009, entering the week with top 20s in 9-of-10 starts at this venue. He opened with back-to-back birdies and looked to be on his way to another strong finish. That is where the fun stopped as he split just two more fairways and found just two more greens in regulation over his final 16 holes. He lost 6.82 strokes tee-to-green, leading to six pars and 10 bogeys. The U.S. Ryder Cup Team captain has now withdrawn from two events this year and 11 total in his career. Love III is scheduled to undergo hip surgery on July 6th.

Brendan Steele survived a five-pack of bogeys to collect 13 points during round one of the Barrcuda Championship, signing for a 4-under-par 37-31=68.

The course horse opened on the back nine with six birdies and one bogey to make the turn with 11 points. Steele carded three more bogeys on his inward nine but swallowed four straight bogeys, beginning at the par-3 third hole. The four-hole bogey train set him back four points but he remains T3 on the live leaderboard, just two points off the early leader Martin Laird. Steele entered the week with three top 10s in four appearances at Montrêux Golf and Country Club.

Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational due to an ankle injury. He was 5-over through 13 at the time of the WD.

The Florida State product joins his fellow alum Daniel Berger as first-round WDs this week. Koepka opened with three bogeys and six pars before making the turn. The real damage was done at the par-4 13th hole as he found a fairway bunker off the tee, punched out to 141 yards and then three-putted from 41'11" for double bogey. Koepka entered the week with high expectations as he finished T6 here last year and arrived with three straight top 15s. He will now have a week off to recover before taking on Royal Troon Golf Club at the Open Championship.

Martin Laird sliced through Montrêux Golf and Country Club with a 7-under-par 32-33=65 during the opening round of the Barracuda Championship, giving himself the early lead with 15 points.

Laird entered the week with three top 10s at this event in three tries, but just one since the move to Modified Stableford scoring in 2012. That latest finish was a T6 in 2014 and the Scot picked up right where he left off, circling eight birdies while swallowing just one bogey. Three of his birdie splashes came from 12-to-17 feet but his most notable putt was a 26-footer to save par at the par-4 fifth hole. Laird has now posted rounds of 66 or better in six of his nine competitive rounds at Montrêux G&CC. With this kind of course history, gamers should expect him to stick around near the top all week.

William McGirt bombarded Firestone Country Club with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64 during the first round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Making his tournament debut, McGirt put on a short-game clinic today. He holed out from a greenside bunker (24'4" at the par-3 15th), holed out from the fringe (14'1" at the par-4 17th), holed out from off the green at the last to save par (46'1"), and drained four putts from outside 18 feet. The longest was a 28'11" birdie bomb at the par-3 fifth hole. Overall, he walked off the course gaining 5.507 strokes on, and around, the green. It's extremely unlikely that we see him maintain this short-game play as the week progresses, but he's given himself a nice little head start on the field.

Colt Knost torched Montrêux Golf and Country Club with a 6-under-par 34-32=66 to bag 13 points during the opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

Since the event moved to Modified Stableford scoring in 2012, all four winners have collected at least 10 points in their opening round. Today, Knost exceeded that with 13 points, using a balanced attack to circle seven birdies. He gained 3.89 strokes approaching-the-green but also sank six putts from outside six feet. Most notable was a 33'4" birdie bomb to kick off his round at the par-4 first hole. The SMU alum entered with a paltry 2-for-5 record at the event, but that included a T10 in last year's edition.

Daniel Berger hit just one shot today at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational before calling it quits, citing a shoulder injury.

The Florida State product was set to make his debut at Firestone Country Club, but decided he couldn't play through the pain after his opening tee ball. Since this is a World Golf Championships event and he started the round, he will walk away with a last-place check of $50,500 although it does not count toward the official money ranking. This adds to an already shaky WGC resume, early in his career. He withdrew from this year's WGC-Dell Match Play after injuring his wrist on a stone wall when facing off against Phil Mickelson. A WD-rate of 50 percent in no-cut WGC events is far from ideal. In a tournament that guarantees four rounds of play, this one will sting for gamers.
