Matt Kuchar declared himself healthy again in today's presser at The Barclays.

It turns out that the last champion at Ridgewood Country Club (in 2010) suffered discomfort in his back doing something with which many dads are familiar, albeit two days before the PGA Championship. "We were having a party at the house – a bunch of people over, a bunch of kids over," he said. "I was in charge of hooking up the Slip 'N Slide for the kids. Walked around, all of Target, all of Wal-Mart, couldn’t find one. Sat in the car for about an hour fighting traffic and when I got back, I thought, 'Boy, my back doesn’t feel very good right now.'" Kuchar withdrew from the major, but he's ready to go this week. "I feel like I’m 100 percent. It’s funny how little setbacks can feel so different to you."

Scott Piercy has withdrawn from the RBC Canadian Open just before his opening tee time, giving Tom Hoge a crack at Glen Abbey Golf Club, in his place.

Piercy withdrew from The 146th Open, but did not cite any injury or illness. There was the chance he just wanted to spend some time with the family instead of traveling overseas. This pre-tournament WD just one week later probably confirms there is an injury or illness, although it hasn't been cited at the time. Piercy is a past champion at this event (2012) but his victory came at a different host course (Hamilton G&CC). Piercy finished T7 at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational in late May but has since gone MC-MC-MC-85.

In-form Richard McEvoy crafted a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in his opening round at the Porsche European Open in Germany, his morning lap at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg securing a one-shot clubhouse lead over Alexander Levy, Charl Schwartzel and Stuart Manley.

The Englishman's place at the top seems a surprise on first glance given that we've not seen him in action on the European Tour since T59 at last month's BMW International Open, also in Germany. However, prior to that he was T5 at the Lyoness Open in neighboring Austria on a course with similar traits to this one and at the start of July he shot a final-round 66 to win the Scottish Challenge on the Challenge Tour. McEvoy started his round from 10th tee today and the birdies came at regular intervals (11, 13, 15 and 18). He picked up another shot at 2 and then made a go-ahead birdie-3 at 7 to claim the outright lead on his own before maintaining it with a pair of closing pars.

RBC Ambassador and World No. 12 Matt Kuchar readies for his 11th RBC Canadian Open and checks in at 17th in the FedExCup standings.

The 39-year-old arrives off solo 2nd at The Open, his career best in majors and ninth top 10 in 47 major appearances. It was also his fifth consecutive top 16 on TOUR. The Georgia Tech alum is second fiddle this week to World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, both in OWGR and pre-tourney odds, a lofty 10/1 outright. He's 7-for-10 North of the Border with six top 25s, five top 10s (four straight), and three top 5s, including runner-up in 2013. The Florida native ranks T14 on TOUR in par-3 scoring (3.00), T20 in par-4 scoring (4.00) and T120 in par-5 scoring (4.71).

Patrick Reed stays the other side of the pond this week and makes his way to Germany for the 2017 Porsche European Open at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The American will form part of the tournament's star three-ball Thursday morning, teeing off at 0800 local alongside defending champion Alexander Levy of France and former Masters winner Charl Schwartzel. Reed arrived in Europe earlier this month after connecting four top 20s in the U.S. but it's been a disappointing time so far following missed cuts at both the Scottish Open (74-70) and Open Championship (74-76). This will be his first start in Germany but any lack of course form is negated by the tournament switching to a venue that hasn't been used on the European Tour. Reed should also enjoy the switch back to parkland golf after struggling on the links so gamers are entitled to think he'll show his class again.

Jhonattan Vegas came from off the pace to win the 2016 RBC Canadian Open, and hopes to repeat that performance this week as he turns his attention toward Glen Abbey Golf Club.

Vegas opened the 2016 edition with a 1-over 73 to sit at T55 on the leaderboard. He progressively improved in rounds 2 and 3, reaching T15 before the finale. Vegas was still five off the pace before torching Glen Abbey Golf Club with an 8-under 64 to heist the trophy from Jon Rahm, Dustin Johnson, and Martin Laird. Last year, Vegas arrived on the heels of a strong week at the Barbasol (T4, including an 11-under 60 in R2). This time around, the Venezuelan enters with five straight missed cuts to his name. Perhaps a return to happy hunting ground will restore the form for this Texas Longhorn product.

Alexander Levy will defend his Porsche European Open title this week at a new venue, the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg.

The Frenchman is always at his best on parkland tracks, preferably modern builds too, so his efforts in recent weeks can be taken with a pinch of salt. In fact, you might argue they show some improvement on his past efforts on linksland so he might thrive back with a challenge he enjoys. He’s also a strong performer in Germany (T3 Eichenried 2013, T12 Gut Larchenhof 2014, T55 Bad Griesbach 2015, 1 Bad Griesbach 2016). A four-time winner on the European Tour he is unafraid of the top of the leaderboard, hits the ball high and long; there seems plenty of reason to believe he’ll attack this week with abandon.

Lee McCoy twirled a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 and then survived a 6-for-2 playoff during today's open qualifier into this week's RBC Canadian Open. Joining him at Glen Abbey Golf Club will be Drew Nesbitt (-5), Riley Wheeldon (-5), and Jhared Hack (-4) with the latter also surviving the 6-man playoff.

McCoy is currently spending his time north of the border on the Mackenzie Tour, so this was familiar hunting ground. The Georgia Bulldog standout won the opening event of the season (Freedom 55 Financial Open) and current ranks 4th on the money list. That bodes well for his chances to crack the Web.com Tour by year's end. He would love to piece together a couple of top-heavy finishes and avoid the WCT altogether. He certainly has the talent to do so, but it shouldn't be expected. McCoy is the only qualifier who is not a Canuck. The remaining three qualifiers have a progressive degree of experience on the PGA TOUR. Drew Nesbitt is making his debut, Jhared Hack is 0-for-1 in his PGA TOUR career (2015 Honda), and Riley Wheeldon is 0-for-2 on the big stage, but hasn't pegged it since the 2014 Farmers Insurance Open.

Brandt Snedeker has backed out of the field for this week's RBC Canadian Open, giving a spot to first alternate Sam Saunders.

Snedeker provided a message to fans last week before withdrawing from The 146th Open. He cited a rib injury that popped up and didn't improve like he would have hoped. He did not provide another lengthy explanation this week, but gamers can put two and two together. First a hand injury and now the ribs are acting up(which he's suffered from in the past), makes it easy to avoid Snedeker for the foreseeable future.

Second-round leader and World No. 392 Chad Collins crafted a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Barbasol Championship to conclude on 20-under 264, up one spot to a career-best solo 2nd, one short of champion Grayson Murray, who also shot 68.

This was the 38-year-old's 177th career TOUR start with a previous best of 3rd at the 2016 Valero Texas Open. It was his second Barbasol after finishing 61st last year. After opening in 67-60, the Indiana native and resident led by four shots, his second career 36-hole lead/co-lead, adding a R3 69 to begin the finale in a two-way T3 on 17-under, two adrift of 54-hole leader Scott Stallings. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.395 strokes approaching-the-green. For a second straight day, he didn't record a front-nine par breaker, going out in 1-over with bogey-6 at five, but for a second straight day, didn't record a blemish on the back side, coming home in 4-under with birdies at 13, and a hat-trick at 15-17, the latter from 16'8". Collins nets his second top 25 of the season and second top 10 among just five made cuts in 23 starts, eclipsing a previous-best T4 at the Honda.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 156 Grayson Murray authored a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Barbasol Championship to post 21-under 263, good for a one-shot win over second-round leader Chad Collins.

The 23-year-old, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, bags his first PGA TOUR title in his 25th career start (24 pro), and 24th start of the season. He is the fourth straight 23-year-old to win on TOUR, with three of the last four at 40/1, and the eighth consecutive winner in their 20s. After kicking off in 67-64-64, the Arizona State product began in solo 2nd on 18-under, one shy of 54-hole leader Scott Stallings. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.044 strokes off-the-tee, No. 1 in SG: OTT with a cumulative 6.119. The North Carolinian, a one-time winner on the Web.com Tour, camouflaged three bogeys at Nos. 1 (3-putt from 54'1"), 8 (3-putt from 15'3") and 14, with four birdies at 2 (from 22'11"), 7, 9 and 16, adding eagle-3 at 13 from 4'5". He posted a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR and -1.345 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. Murray's previous best was T8 at the Sanderson Farms 38 weeks ago.

Matt Kuchar steadied a 1-under-par 34-35=69 during round four of The 146th Open, flirting with victory but finding himself in solo second by week's end, posting a total of 9-under 271, three strokes behind the winner, Jordan Spieth.

Starting the day three back, Kuchar did all you could ask for out of someone playing in the final group at a major championship. He traded two birdies with two bogeys on the outward nine and actually took the lead after the par-4 13th. From there he added birdies at 15 and 17 but his playing partner, Jordan Spieth, went unconscious at the same time, going 5-under from the 14th to 17th holes. Needing a birdie, Kuchar got aggressive at the closing hole, leading to a bogey. In the end, this still goes in the books as a career best in major championships for Kuchar (T3, 2012 Masters). It also eclipses his previous best at this event (T9, 2012 Open Championship). Kuchar may be approaching 40 years of age, but he's not showing any signs of slowing down.
