Talor Gooch shares a piece of second place at the midpoint of the Sony Open in Hawaii, tossing together a 4-under-par 32-34=66 to reach 10-under 130 on the week.

The Oklahoma State product matched his career low on Thursday (6-under 64) but didn't show any letdown today. He was a bit shaky off the tee, finding just six (of 14) fairways but his putter stayed hot to keep him in the mix. In particular, he was pouring it in from mid-range, sinking five putts in the 8-to-11 foot range. At the midpoint, Gooch ranks fourth in the field in the strokes gained putting department. The 26-year-old is now 6-for-8 in his young PGA TOUR career, still searching for his first top 15 on the big stage.

Joost Luiten is looking forward to playing "without any pain" when he makes his comeback at this week's Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain.

The Dutchman has finished runner-up in his last two starts at the course (2016 and 2017) but enters this week having not pegged it up since May's BMW PGA Championship due to a wrist injury. That's given gamers a dilemma although at least a more informed decision can be made now that Luiten has given this assessment in an interview with europeantour.com. "The wrist is really good. It's good to be out here again, see all the guys and play without any pain," he said. "I'm feeling good. It's been a tough time but the recovery is going really well and I'm fit to play. I've been practising for the last couple of weeks so I'm ready to go again. I know it's going to be a difficult week for me because I haven't been playing for five months and it's a tough course to come back at. But you've got to start somewhere so I'd rather start at a place that I love."

Top-ranked and World No. 3 Brooks Koepka, a pre-tourney 8/1 outright, makes final preparations for his CJ CUP debut on Jeju Island, Korea, and heads out in Round 1 at 8:15 AM local time with outright fave Justin Thomas (11/2) and PGA TOUR rookie Sungjae Im.

The recently minted Player of the Year battles local resident Im and 2017 POY Thomas on Day 1 and ranked 45th on TOUR last season in R1 scoring average. His other ranks: R2 (T3); R3 (81st); R4 (1st). The 28-year-old, who can overtake idle Dustin Johnson as World No. 1, arrives off a T26 (of 30) at the TOUR Championship, a 1-2-1 record at the Ryder Cup, and T7 two weeks ago at the Alfred Dunhill Links. He finished a career-best 9th in the FedExCup standings last season, despite missing 15 weeks with a torn wrist tendon, highlighted by back-to-back U.S. Open wins and a third major title at the PGA, both as a 54-hole leader or co-leader. The FSU product won the PGA by two over Tiger Woods in an aggregate scoring record of 264 (16-under), and became the first player to win the U.S. Open and PGA in the same year since Woods in 2000. Two of his seven international victories came in the Far East, winning the 2016 and 2017 Dunlop Phoenix in Japan.

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 94 Sungjae Im readies for his CJ CUP debut on Jeju Island, Korea, and is currently a pre-tourney 33/1 outright.

Im lives in Jeju City while the host venue, Club at Nine Bridges, is his home course. He arrives off a career-best T4 at the season-opener in Napa where he was inside the top 5 after every round (66-69-69-71), ranked T4 in SG: Putting (5.989), despite a pedestrian 0.065 in R4, and played in the final threesome in R4. The 20-year-old was the top rookie-finisher (of 21) at the Safeway and entered as the top-ranked OWGRer of the new class. He was also the top debutant (of 30) at Silverado Resort so being a first-timer didn't bother him at all. The South Korean began the season No. 1 on the Web.com Tour grad priority rankings after being the first player to lead the money list wire-to-wire, highlighted by wins at the first and last regular-season events.

World No. 12 Jason Day is on Jeju Island, Korea, for THE CJ CUP and makes his season debut as a pre-tourney 11/1 outright.

Day led/co-led three times last season after any round in 68 rounds played. Two of those were after R4, resulting in wins at the Wells Fargo (in May) and the Farmers in January, both as pre-tourney 20/1 outrights. This is his second CJ CUP after T11 last year, where he was T16 thru 54 holes (68-74-71-71). The 30-year-old finished 16th in the FedExCup standings last season with five top 10s in 20 starts, highlighted by the two wins and a T2 at the AT&T Pebble Beach. This is his first start since finishing 18th (of 30) at the TOUR Championship four weeks ago (68-73-69-68). The Aussie owns 27 top-3 finishes in 231 TOUR events, including 12 wins (10 stroke play), one of those in a no-cut event, the 2015 BMW Championship (Conway Farms), where he opened with a still-career-low, 10-under 61. His most recent top-10 finish is T10 at the no-cut WGC-Bridgestone six starts ago.

Steven Bowditch will be out of action until late 2019 at the earliest as he preps to undergo back surgery next month.

Bowditch provided a statement via Twitter saying, "I spent much of the last two years dealing with lower back pain, leg numbness, sciatic pain, loss of control of my side and tingling in my toes." He'd go on to explain the length diagnosis process and declare he has Pars defect and Spondylolysis which requires surgical fusion of the L5, S1. The two-time winner is hoping to finally be able to play pain-free. Bowditch will play out of the Past Champions category upon return which will limit his available opportunities.

World No. 22 Hideki Matsuyama ended his 2017-18 season on a high note and now he turns his attention to THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES, the first start for him this season.

Matsuyama was set to peg it at TPC Kuala Lumpur last week but he backed out early in the week, citing an injury (undisclosed). We should get some more clarity on the severity when he reports for his pre-tournament presser that takes place on Wednesday afternoon (local time). Matsuyama is coming off a mediocre season by his standards as he battled with a wrist injury. The Japanese superstar found his form at the end of the year with five straight top 15s. Gamers should assume he's ready to rock this week unless we hear otherwise on Wednesday.

Justin Thomas won the inaugural CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES and he returns to Jeju Island, South Korea, for a chance to defend his title.

JT led by three strokes after an opening 9-under 63 last year. The winds picked up over the final three rounds and Thomas actually won the event with that same score (9-under 279). He beat out Marc Leishman in a playoff to secure his trophy. Thomas had 10 bogeys and two doubles but he erased that with 19 birdies and a pair of eagles. Both of those eagles came in the opening round. The Alabama product has nine career wins with five of them coming in no-cut events. Thomas remains an elite option in all fantasy formats.

Prior to the start of the event, Andrew Landry has withdrawn from this week's CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. First alternate Branden Grace will take his place in the field.

This is the second week in a row that he's backed out of the event before it starts. Given the travel distance, it's easy to see why he'd back out if he were less than 100 percent. There is no specific injury released here but he did tweet this after the Safeway Open, "One of my favorites all year. Looking forward to going home and getting healthy and spending some much needed time with the family." Landry became a father in March so he'll definitely enjoy his extended time at home with the little one. Golfers were able to commit to these events as early as July so this seems to be a case of him changing plans after his commitment was already turned in (likely a month or two ago). The vagueness of his tweet would have you believe this is not a long-term concern and gamers should invest as usual, upon his return.

Jordan Spieth has committed to play in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open which takes place on November 1st thru 4th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Spieth made headlines last month when he failed to reach East Lake and therefore failed to meet the 25 starts needed to fulfill the requirement for membership under the new-event policy that went into place a few years ago. There won't be any official ruling released but this certainly could have been one of the compromises made by Spieth to avoid a hefty fine or suspension. This will be the first time that Spieth tees it in the fall event that takes place in the continental United States. A star-studded field is taking shape with four of his Ryder Cup teammates also set to play TPC Summerlin in a few weeks (Tony Finau, Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, and Webb Simpson). The position-based layout should be a great for fit Spieth.

Alexander Bjork gave it a great shot in the final round of the British Masters in England but eventually came up two shots shy of winner Eddie Pepperell after authoring a closing 1-under-par 34-37=71 to finish at 7-under 281.

Playing alongside the winner, the Swede carefully picked off birdies at 2, 5 and 11 but had to witness a Pepperell hole-out for eagle at 10. A bogey at 13 along with an unlikely Pepperell par save at 14 put the gap back to three (where it started today) but the Englishman blinked with dropped shots at 15 and 16. One behind with two to play, Bjork attacked the back flag at 17 but missed his birdie try and a loose drive at the last led to bogey as Pepperell held firm with two pars. This was a fine effort by the World No. 89 and a return to the form which had vanished in recent weeks. Bjork, ranked 22nd on the Race to Dubai ahead of this week, is one to watch in the closing months of the season.

Local hero Eddie Pepperell became the first wire-to-wire winner on the European Tour this season after shooting even-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the British Masters in England, his winning score of 9-under 279 at Walton Heath securing a two-shot victory over Alexander Bjork and giving him a second trophy of the season.

Lucas Herbert and Jordan Smith finished tied third, four shots behind the winner. Pepperell had some crisis moments on the way to victory but this always felt like his week. A three-putt at nine was his first wobble but he responded by draining his approach to the par-4 10th (watch here) for his fourth eagle of the week. Later, he failed to reach the putting surface at the par-4 14th in three but holed a long putt from off the green for an unlikely par save. The World No. 50 almost opened the door with bogeys at 15 and 16 to see his lead cut to one but an up-and-down from sand at 18 against a Bjork bogey confirmed him as champion. Having entered 2018 without a win at this level, Pepperell now has two following his earlier success at the Qatar Masters. "It was such a tough day, an absolute grind," he said, referring to the cold and rainy conditions.
