Marc Leishman hoisted the hardware at the 2017 Arnold Palmer Invitational and returns this week for a chance to defend his title at Bay Hill Club & Lodge.

The Aussie found himself T20 after R1 of last year's API but roared inside the top 5 with a second-round 66. He remained there until there final round where he started three of the pace. During that Sunday round, he posted a 3-under 69 on a day where the field averaged 73.111 strokes. It's was Leishman's second career TOUR title and he's since picked up a third. More recently he's shown signs of a mini-slump, losing strokes to the field in consecutive events for the first since May of 2016. Prolonged slumps are not in Leishman's nature so gamers should look for the Aussie to rebound this week on a course where he has plenty of good vibes to draw on.

Sergio Garcia warms up for the Ryder Cup with a first visit to the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

A debut in the tournament and, indeed, the country for the Spaniard who has spent a few weeks off having failed to make the FedEx Cup Play-Offs and been relatively relaxed about getting a wildcard pick by Thomas Bjorn. Last minute dash to play the Made in Denmark? Nah, he was good. Whilst that riled some, Garcia was happy to head home to Spain and seek the guidance of his father; his mentor and sharpest swing eye. It's tricky to assess what we will see this week. He was T24 last time out in the Wyndham Championship yet heading into the final holes of his third round he was only one back of the lead, but closed with a 70 in a birdie-fest. His long game might suit this Palmer test, but can he drain enough putts?

Xander Schauffele hoisted the hardware in his 2017 TOUR Championship debut and he returns to East Lake this week in hopes of defending his title.

The San Diego State product did not arrive as one of the favorites last year and he fell even further down the odds board after he found himself five off the pace through round 1 (1-under 69). Schauffele then rallied with rounds of 66-65-68 to come from off the pace and grab a statement victory, leading him to win Rookie of the Year honors. He erased seven bogeys with 17 birdies and an eagle here last year, gaining 4.6 strokes off-the-tee and another 3.61 strokes around-the-green. The second-year member doesn't have any wins on his resume this season but he does have two runner-up finishes and a pair of third-place finishes which places him 18th in the FedExCup standings. He arrived at 26th last year. "There's added pressure for me to try to play really well to make it on the Ryder Cup. I didn't handle that very well." With that in the past, he should play with a little less stress on his shoulders.

Ashun Wu left it late to take the lead, but his final hole birdie set a target Chris Wood could not equal and he won the KLM Open at The Dutch in Spijk with a final round 4-under-par 34-33=67 for a one shot victory on 16-under 268.

A third European Tour success for the 33-year-old Chinese golfer and with it he continued a remarkable trend at the Colin Montgomerie course: of winners at the Diamond CC in Austria thriving. Wu, Wood, 2016 winner Joost Luiten and 2016 runner-up Bernd Wiesberger have all tasted success near Vienna. Moreover last year's winner Romain Wattel plays it well too. For Wu on Sunday a slow front nine was followed by late acceleration. He ticked 2 and 4, but crossed the seventh. After the turn he made red at 14 and 15, joined Wood at the top in doing so and then got the chance to play the par-5 18th first. With the tee moved up 141-yards it played 499-yards; Wu thrashed his approach to 20'0" and nearly holed for eagle. However the birdie was good enough to take the lead for the first time in the day and also for the title.

Chris Wood grabbed the 54-hole lead in the KLM Open at The Dutch with a third round 6-under-par 34-31=65 which edged him one clear of Hideto Tanihara, Ashun Wu and Jonathan Thomson on 13-under 200.

Two years ago the Englishman's good friend Joost Luiten gained the home win on this course and now he has the chance to emulate him in Spijk, The Netherlands. The key to his success on Saturday? He birdied all four of the par-5s and three times he did so by laying up and then knocking his pitch shots stiff. He did it on the sixth, the 15th and finally on the 18th, the latter earning him the key one-shot final day advantage. There were further par breakers at the seventh on the front nine, and on the 10th, 12th and 13th on the back nine. His only mistake came early in the round at the second. This will be his sixth 54-hole lead, four on the European Tour and one in Asia; he has claimed two wins. Curiously all those leads were solo, never shared. A two-time runner-up this season he is seeking a first ET win since the 2016 BMW PGA Championship.

World No. 37 Kiradech Aphibarnrat slumped to a 3-over-par 37-37=74 in round two of the KLM Open in the Netherlands, his 36-hole total of 4-over 146 a full four shots outside the cut line.

The Thai had plenty of work to do after an opening 72 and just wasn't up to it today after going all 18 holes without a single birdie. His day got off to a poor start with bogey-5 at No. 1 and never picked up after that, Aphibarnat dropping further shots at 5 and 14. This continues a rather poor run which now shows eight events without a top 30 since his T15 at the U.S. Open. Others to miss the cut included: 142- Paul Dunne, Ryan Fox, Andrew Johnston, Aaron Rai, Mike Loreno Vera ... 143- Romain Wattel (defending champion) ... 145- Joakim Lagergren ... 147- Ross Fisher.

First-round leader Ashun Wu remained out in front at the KLM Open after tacking on a 5-under-par 33-33=66 to his opening 64 and posting 12-under 130 at the midpoint, good enough for a three-shot lead on the live board with the afternoon session getting underway. UPDATE: Wu ended R2 three clear of Jonathan Thomson.

Wu, a two-time winner on the European Tour, racked up seven birdies in his opener to take a one-shot lead and repeated the feat today. Starting with a pair of red numbers at the first two holes, he played The Dutch's front nine in 2-under 33 for the second day running after then trading a square at 5 with a circle at 6. Coming home, Wu outpaced a bogey-6 at 15 with further par breakers at 10, 12, 16 and 17. Right now, he's three in front of Jonathan Thomson (F) and Soomin Lee (17). When winning his two European titles (2015 China Open and 2016 Lyoness Open), Wu was T4 and T8 respectively at halfway. This would be his first 36-hole lead in a Euro Tour event.

World No. 344 Ashun Wu ended the first round of the KLM Open in the Netherlands with a one-shot lead over Chris Wood after firing a superb bogey-free 7-under-par 31-33-64 in his opener.

The Chinese golfer came to The Dutch in Spijk with some momentum after a pair of middle 65s helped him to a season's best T6 at last week's European Masters in Switzerland. The confidence was immediately apparent as he followed a pair of pars at 10 and 11 with a burst of red numbers (12, 13, 14, 16 and 18) to turn in just 31. That run included birdies on the par 3s at 14 and 16 and he continued his assault on the short holes with another pair of deuces on 4 and 8 to nudge in front of Wood. A huge 13-man group, including Eddie Pepperell and Soren Kjeldsen, lie two shots behind Wu on 5-under. This is the 33-year-old's first R1 lead in his European Tour career and lowest lap on day one. He's led three Japanese Tour events after 18 holes but didn't win any and, in fact, finished outside the top 15 in two of the three so we'll have to see how he goes from here. Don't underestimate Wu though as he's a two-time winner on the European Tour.

Englishman Chris Wood set the early clubhouse target in the KLM Open at The Dutch in Spijk with a first round 6-under-par 33-32=65. UPDATE: Wood finished the day in solo second, a shot behind Ashun Wu.

A sparkling effort from the tall guy and the first time he has broken 66 in round one since the BMW International Open of 2012 and the only time he has gone sub-66 in any lap since the China Open of April last year. It was an elegant and bogey-free performance in perfect conditions on the Colin Montgomerie designed track. He started on the back nine and made a hat-trick of red numbers at the 13th, 14th and 15th holes. The front nine saw another three birdies, at the third, seventh and finally the ninth after his approach left him a six foot putt. When he signed his card he held a one shot lead over Renato Paratore and Andrea Pavan, with a handful of morning starters two back.

Matt Wallace had a change of heart ahead of the KLM Open, withdrawing prior to the start of the event.

The Englishman just won the Made in Denmark a few weeks ago to prop his name into the Ryder Cup conversation but did not get picked. He's won four times on the European Tour all of them coming since the start of 2017. Wallace started strong last week in the Swiss Alps with rounds of 68-69-69 before a final-round 74. He took to social media after the round to say he "ran out of steam." The 28-year-old provided another update today via Twitter, saying "Really disappointed to have to withdraw from the KLM Open. Rest is needed for the body." Wallace has jumped to 57th in the OWGR and the next step in his career progression is to prove his talents against the strongest of fields in majors and WGCs.

American captain Jim Furyk made his fourth and final pick to round out the American side for the upcoming 2018 Ryder Cup, choosing Tony Finau as the 12th man to compete in Paris later this month.

Furyk made his first three captain's picks on September 4th, going with Tiger Woods, Phil Mickelson, and Bryson DeChambeau. Those picks brought experience to the table with Woods and Mickelson while DeChabmeau checked the current form box, winning twice over the last month. For the 12th pick, Furyk has chosen to add another Ryder Cup rookie who is in tremendous form. Finau doesn't have any team experience (since turning pro) to lean on, but he's been one of the most consistent golfers all season and arrives with 15 straight sub-70 rounds. When asked about the Le Golf National over the weekend he had this to say, "It's a golf course that takes driver out of my hand more than I like but that doesn't mean I can't make birdies."

Keegan Bradley barreled his name into contention with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 during the Monday finale of the BMW Championship, good for 20-under 260 on the week to reach a playoff against Justin Rose. Bradley won that playoff on the first sudden-death hole, carding a tap-in par to get the job done.

Bradley continued to be hit-or-miss on approach as he found just 12 greens today but made the most of those GIRs (eight scoring chances from inside 11 feet). That was the story for most of the week as he was just T50 in GIR percentage but 11st in strokes gained approach. That's nothing new for Bradley but the key for him this week was putting, as he gained 7.158 strokes putting on the week, first in the field. That was a major flip for him as he entered the week ranked 156th in SG:Putting. The 32-year-old is now a four-time winner on the PGA TOUR. This was his first win since the 2012 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. This result also vaults him from 52nd to 6th place in the FedExCup race, earning him a seat at the Playoffs finale at East Lake. His last visit to East Lake was during the 2013 TOUR Championship.
