Morgan Hoffmann revealed his ongoing battle with muscular dystrophy in a recent article written for The Players' Tribune.

The Oklahoma State product was diagnosed with muscular dystrophy in November of 2016 and he revealed the disease is currently causing atrophy in his right and left pectoral muscles. The full article is a must read on The Players' Tribune as it gives a behind-the-scenes look into how Hoffmann was raised, how he has taken a joy in giving back, and how he is dealing with this serious disease. The 28-year-old has been playing through this since he first noticed it in 2011 and will continue to do so. He even went as far as saying, "This disease won’t keep me from achieving my dream of winning on the PGA Tour."

Troy Merritt was locked in during round one of the Barbasol Championship, bombarding Keene Trace Golf Club with a bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62 to give himself a three-shot lead with play winding down for the day.

Merritt striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. His ball-striking was the main conduit to scoring but he also holed out from 34'3" for eagle at the par-5 sixth hole and splashed home four putts from outside nine feet. This was a very balanced attack as he walked off the course gained at least one stroke in all four sub-categories of strokes gained. Playing the first round at this week's venue, Merritt will now hold the course record here. This will be his second career first-round lead/co-lead, with his previous co-lead coming at the 2010 Sony Open (finished T20). This will also go in the books as his third-lowest round on TOUR (61, R2/2015 Heritage; 61, R3/2015 Quicken Loans National).

Defending champion Jordan Spieth opened the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie in Angus with a 1-over-par lap of 34-38=72, good for T50.

Spieth landed only 47% of the fairways and 56% of the greens in regulation as he struggled to make headway on a mostly calm day in Scotland. True, he encountered some of the heavier breezes, but there was nothing too demanding and for a long while he seemed in control, ticking the second and fourth on the front nine, then the 11th on the back nine to make his way into the teeth of the course unharmed. Alas it all went wrong. He found the rough (twice) and sand on his way to a double bogey-6 at the 15th, slumped to bogey at 16 and added another at the final hole.

Tiger Woods managed his way around Carnoustie Golf Links en route to an even-par 34-37=71 during round one of The 147th Open, placing him at T32 on the live leaderboard with play nearly done for the day.

Going off in Group No. 47 (of 52), Woods took a conservative approach today with nearly all irons and woods off the tee. That helped him reach 2-under thru 4 but the conditions got tougher as the day progressed. His lone driver hit came at the par-5 sixth hole and he piped a slight baby fade right down the middle of the fairway. With gusts starting to hit 15-to-20 MPH on his back nine, the task got a bit tougher, as if it weren't tough enough to begin with at Carnoustie. On top of that, Woods struggled with his putting speed on his way into the clubhouse, trading three bogeys with one birdie on the homeward nine. Woods was seen with kinesiology tape on his neck today but he brushed it off as a non-factor saying that he often plays all taped up it just happened that we could see it today. Woods will play in Group 21 tomorrow which means he may have to deal with a bit of rain during his round.

Sebastian Munoz twirled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round one of the Barbasol Championship. He'll return 80 minutes earlier than expected tomorrow as tee times have been pushed up in anticipation of inclement weather. Friday morning tee times will begin at 7:00 a.m. local time while the afternoon will kick off at noon, barring any setbacks with weather.

Munoz started his round on the 10th tee and scraped together a bogey-free 34 on his outward nine. He had only three scoring chances from inside 30 feet on that nine holes, so it was impressive scrambling that worked for him. The Colombian picked up the iron play on his way into the clubhouse, setting up four birdies (2,3, 6, and 7) with all four coming from inside nine feet. This will be the third time Munoz has posted inside the top 10 after R1 of a PGA TOUR event. Both of his previous fast starts were first-round leads/co-leads (2017 St. Jude Classic and 2017 Greenbrier Classic). Playing on the Web.com Tour this year, Munoz is 14-for-17 to sit in 5th place on the WCT money list, posting three podium finishes along the way. With his 2018-19 PGA TOUR card locked up through the Web Tour, Munoz is playing stress-free golf right now.

Andres Romero fired out of the gate en route to a 7-under-par 31-34=65 during round one of the Barbasol Championship, good for the early clubhouse lead as the afternoon wave gets started.

The Argentine had a close call at the 2007 Open Championship at Carnoustie (solo third). This week, he doesn't get a second crack at Carnoustie but instead he's back in the States playing in Kentucky. Opening his round with an 18-footer for birdie, he would add four more circles over the next five holes. His putter stalled during the middle of the round (misses from 11'11" 11'10", and 3'0"). Romero got back on track with three birds in his final three holes. Romero walked off the course gaining 1.734 strokes off-the-tee and another 3.441 strokes approaching-the-green. The 37-year-old got off to a fast start last week as well (T3 after R1 of the John Deere, finished T7). If this lead holds then it'd be his third career first-round lead or co-lead on the PGA TOUR (2013 Puerto Rico Open, finished T6; 2012 Reno-Tahoe Open, solo third).

Tony Finau has finished tied 10th and 5th in the first two majors of 2018 and he's on course for another big week after starting the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie with a 4-under-par 34-33=67, a closing 25-footer for birdie hoisting him to T2 and just one behind leader Kevin Kisner.

Finau went hunting for red numbers today and came up with eight of them. His set included four on the front nine (1, 2, 6 and 9) against dropped shots at 3 and 7. And coming home he outpaced bogeys at 12 and 16 with circles at 13, 14, 15 and 18. The big-hitting American, who practised with some of his potential Ryder Cup colleagues at Le Golf National last week, hit 10 of the 15 fairways and found 14 greens. He took 29 putts. Finau also shot a first-round 67 on his Open debut at Troon in 2016 when finishing T18 while he was T27 at Royal Birkdale last year so he's made a bright start to his Open career.

Kevin Kisner rode a hot putter in the first round of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie, twirling a 5-under-par 34-32=66 to grab a one-shot lead clubhouse over Erik Van Rooyen. UPDATE: Kisner ended R1 a stroke in front of Van Rooyen, Tony Finau and Zander Lombard.

The American hasn't managed a top 50 in his three Open starts but found a groove with the putter today, taking just 22 swishes. Kisner, who has just one top ten in 14 starts in the majors, fell over par after bogey at the 5th hole but wiped it out, and some, with eagle at the par-5 6th. He made another gain at 8 before surging into the lead by connecting a trio of birdies from Nos. 13-15. Three closing pars kept him out in front. Kisner split just 7 of 15 fairways today and only hit half the greens but said the putting surfaces were running faster than he expected and which helped him find good speed. He'd arrived in Scotland on a poor run of form with four MCs and two finishes outside the top 50 in his last six starts. Today's 66 beats his lowest Open 18-hole score by three (69 in R4 at Royal Birkdale last year).

Erik Van Rooyen fired a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in round one of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie, good enough for a two-shot clubhouse lead over Matthew Southgate on the first day. UPDATE: Van Rooyen ended R1 in T2, a shot behind Kevin Kisner.

Playing in the second group out this morning (06:46), the South African cashed in on the benign morning conditions at the Scottish links. He set the tone with a pair of opening birdies at 1 & 2 before adding another red number at the par-5 6th. The 28-year-old picked up further shots at 11 and 15 but swallowed a walk-off bogey, his only blemish, on the tough par-4 18th. Van Rooyen was the 36- and 54-hole leader in the Irish Open two weeks ago before finishing tied fourth and has a history of fast starts on the European Tour this season (he’s been in the top four after R1 five times). In his first ever round in a major, he piped 13 (of 15) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and took 29 putts. On the live leaderboard, he leads by a shot from Danny Willett, Patrick Cantlay, Kevin Kisner, Brandon Stone and Chesson Hadley.

Grayson Murray remains sidelined with a shoulder injury, forcing him to miss out on the opportunity to defend his title at this week's Barbasol Championship.

We knew Murray was out of action due to injury but we weren't sure what the injury was until now. He clarified what's ailing him via social media, "Disappointed I won't have the chance to defend my title this week at the. @barbosalchampionship. Good luck to everyone in this years field! My shoulder is getting better every day so hope to be back on Tour in a couple of weeks." Murray is 100th in the FedExCup race so he could still return and attempt to go deep into the Playoffs. A more realistic scenario is that we only see Murray 1-to-3 more times before next fall. A setback is also possible meaning we wouldn't see him until next fall. Season-long gamers can cut bait unless they are in a league with extremely deep rosters.

Jhonattan Vegas is dealing with passport and travel issues ahead of this week's Open Championship, putting him in doubt for even teeing it up at Carnoustie Golf Links.

Vegas provided an update via social media, "Everything seems to be against me to get my visa and make @TheOpen. First, @UPS mechanical problem and passport is running late and second, weather thru NYC and flight is delay. Probably need to find another flight." Gamers should keep a close eye on this situation and be ready to swap him out on weekly lineups. He missed the cut last year in his Open Championship debut.

2016 Champion Golfer of the Year Henrik Stenson pulled out of the Scottish Open with injury but is planning to tee it up this week in the 147th Open at Carnoustie.

The 42-year-old has been the subject of speculation regarding his ability to play this week, one of his favorite tests of the year. The elbow problem stopped him having the pre-Open links test he prefers, but he was on the range Tuesday hitting balls alongside his coach Pete Cowan. The work they were doing was technically-based suggesting he is not favoring the arm and there were no outward signs of pain. Stenson did not talk after his session, but the Swedish press report that he has every intention of hitting the first tee on Thursday.
