Aaron Wise put on a ball-striking clinic on his way toward a 6-under-par 33-32=65 during round one of the AT&T Byron Nelson, placing him in an early logjam for the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Wise was later passed up on the leaderboard by Marc Leishman who fired a career-low 61 (-10).

Sweeping the dew on a Thursday morning, Wise striped all 14 fairways and missed just one green in regulation. Unfortunately, his putter didn't add much value as he didn't convert a single putt from outside 9'9" and five of his seven birdies came on putts from three feet or closer. Walking off Trinity Forest, Wise was gaining 2.813 strokes off-the-tee and 3.485 strokes on approach. That kind of ball-striking will lead to success at any venue. If this co-lead holds then it would be his first time leading or co-leading on the PGA TOUR. If will be interesting to see if he can maintain this stellar striking in R2, considering the wind is expected to pick up a bit for tomorrow's afternoon wave.

Brian Davis finished first in the field when he twirled a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 during today's Monday Qualifier into the Farmers Insurance.

The Englishman was clean and tidy on his way around El Camino Country Club today. As a result, he will get his fourth try at the Farmers Insurance Open. He's missed two of his cuts at this event and T44 in the other (2011). About 10 years ago, Davis was on the top of most list of best golfers to never win a PGA TOUR event. He's racked up $13 million in career earnings but starts are tough to come by out of the Beyond 150 category. Joining the 44-year-old at Torrey Pines will be Bruce Doucett (-5), Joey Garber (-5), and David Pastore (-4). Pastore survived a 5-for-1 playoff with George Cunningham, D.J. Trahan, Andres Gonzales, and Martin Trainer.

Jamie Lovemark was an early exit at last week's Desert Classic and he remains sidelined as he withdrew from the field at the Farmers Insurance Open.

The PGA TOUR did not cite an injury after he withdrew last week but Lovemark later addressed the issue on social media, "Sucks to have withdrawn from this week. My shoulder partially dislocated on a tee shot on Thursday. After an MRI that night, I learned I have a partially torn labrum." It's possible that he misspoke when he said Thursday instead of Friday. If not, then he carded his even-par 72 on Friday while playing through the injury. This was surely a tough event to miss as he attended Torrey Pines High. There is no timetable for his return to action.

Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, alternate and World No. 418 Dominic Bozzelli smoothed a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Desert Classic to finish up on 22-under 266, up two places to solo 5th, four in arrears of PGA TOUR rookie and champion Adam Long, who shot 65.

After opening with 67-69 and career-tying-low 64, the Auburn alum began T7, six back of leader Phil Mickelson. He found seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.207 strokes around-the-green but gaining 3.124 on approach. The 27-year-old squared a lone bogey-4 at 13, outflanked by seven birdies, all from inside of eight feet. He registered 1.426 putts per GIR and 1.427 SG: Putting, ending the week with 25 birdies versus three bogeys. This was his third appearance, second cash and second top 5, joining solo 5th two tries ago in 2017 (as 18-hole leader). The New York State native improves to 5-for-6 on the season with two top 25s (T11, RSM), and records his first top 10 since T10 at the 2017 FedEx St. Jude Classic, which will also earn him a spot into this coming week's Farmers.

Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, World No. 346 Talor Gooch tossed up a day-low, 8-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the Desert Classic to finish up his second appearance (T67/2018) on 24-under 264, up three spots to a career-best solo 4th, two adrift of champion Adam Long, who shot 65.

The Oklahoma State alum's closing 64 matches a career low in 90 rounds (x3). This was his 33th event, first top 10, and brushes aside a previous-best T13 at the 2018 Wells Fargo. The 27-year-old, playing this season on conditional status, improves to 2-for-4 with two top 25s (T14, Sanderson Farms), and checked in off back-to-back missed cuts, including at last week's Sony as an open-qualifier. After opening with 67-67-66, he began T7, six back of leader Phil Mickelson, and hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. Gooch rang up nine birdies to camouflage a one bogey-5 at 15, recording 3.782 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.095 SG: Putting. For the week, he totaled one eagle and 26 birdies against four bogeys, and the top 10 earns him a spot into this coming week's Farmers.

Playing out of the final threesome, World No. 70 Adam Hadwin tacked on a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in the final round of the Desert Classic to finish in a two-way T2 on 25-under 263, one swing short of playing competitor and champion Adam Long, who shot bogey-free 65.

After opening with 65-66-65, the Scottsdale resident began solo 2nd, two shy of leader Phil Mickelson and one clear of TOUR rookie Long. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 2.520 approaching but losing 2.142 around-the-green. The 31-year-old went out in bogey-free 5-under, now the leader by two, and after birdie-4 at 11, his sixth of the day, led by three. He stalled out from there, however, playing his final seven holes in birdie-less 1-over (bogey at 13), and ending with 1.502 SG: Putting and 26 total putts. For the week, the Canadian tallied one eagle and 26 birdies against three bogeys. This was his fifth appearance, fourth straight top 10 and second runner-up (2017 as 54-hole leader), and his third top 10 of the season in six starts, bettering a pair of T10s. Hadwin, chasing his second TOUR title in 127 events, settles for his second runner-up.

Playing out of the final threesome, two-time past champ and overnight leader Phil Mickelson labored to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Desert Classic, dipping one spot into a two-way T2 on 25-under 263, one short of PGA TOUR rookie and playing competitor Adam Long, who erased a three-shot deficit and hoisted the trophy after a bogey-free 65.

The Hall of Famer, who led outright after Rounds 1, 2 and 3, drops to 25-for-40 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes, zero for his last four. He improves to 2-for-2 on the season (T17, Safeway) and settles for his 36th runner-up in 596 events, first since T2 at the 2018 AT&T Pebble Beach last February. After opening with career-tying-low 60, 68-66, the World No. 34 led by three, two, and two shots, respectively. On seven (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, he squared two bogey-5s at holes 1 (3-putt from 29'8") and 9 (penalty drop), offset by five circles at 2, 5, 7 (from 11'4"), 15 and 16. The 48-year-old, who was chasing his 44th TOUR title, posted a dismal 1.824 putts per GIR and -3.251 SG: Putting, missing three putts from seven feet and in. For the week, he totaled one eagle and 27 birdies against two bogeys and one double.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 417 Adam Long (rota: NT-SC-LQ) painted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the Desert Classic to reach 26-under 262, good for a one-shot win over playing competitors Adam Hadwin (67) and Phil Mickelson (69), who was the leader after each of the first three rounds. UPDATE: Long vaults 284 places to a career-high 133 in OWGR and 193 spots to a career-high 12th in the FedExCup standings.

The 31-year-old, a pre-tourney 500/1 outright, bags his first TOUR title in six events, brushing aside a previous-best T63 at the season-opening Safeway. Prior to this week, his highest position after any round was T4 after R1 (Safeway). The Duke alum, who's made 137 starts on various mini tours, also records his first pro win of any kind. After kicking off with 63-71-63, the 63s both career lows, he began in solo 3rd, three back. The New Orleans native hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.991 strokes tee-to-green and 2.886 on-the-green. He rang up seven birdies, all birdie-3s, including the winner on the 72nd hole from 13'9". For the week, Long tallied three eagles and 24 birdies versus two bogeys and one double. Along with a two-year exemption, he earns a host of goodies, including an invite to the 2019 Masters.

Defending champ and World No. 7 Jon Rahm handed in a 5-under-par 32-35=67 after the final round of the Desert Classic to wrap on 21-under 267, up one place to solo 6th, five adrift of PGA TOUR rookie and champion Adam Long, who shot bogey-free 65.

After opening with 66-66-68 (LQ-NT-SC), the ASU alum began T7, six back. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he found 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.864 strokes tee-to-green. The 24-year-old squared a lone bogey-4 at 13, outpaced by six circles at holes 3-5, 7, 10 and 17, three from between 10 and 33 feet. He registered 1.643 putts per GIR but a pedestrian 0.031 SG: Putting, missing four scoring tries from nine feet and in, and finished the week with 26 birdies against five bogeys. It's the Spaniard's second top 10 in three visits (P1/2018) and improves to 3-for-3 on the season with three top 25s and two top 10s, bettering a T8 at the Sentry TOC in his last start.
Jan 20 - 6:50 PM

World No. 140 Lucas Glover enjoyed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Desert Classic to conclude on 17-under 271, up 19 places to T10 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Glover finished T12.

The Clemson alum ends the week No.1 in total bogeys with just one. He squared bogey-4 at the 12th in R1 (La Quinta), and then played his final 60 holes blemish-free 9-under. After opening with trip 68s, the 39-year-old began T29 on 12-under, four shy of the overnight top 10. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.150 strokes tee-to-green. The Florida resident carded five birdies at holes 1, 6, 7, 15 and 16, four from between nine and 17 feet, posting 1.620 SG: Putting. For the week, he smothered the one bogey with 18 birdies and was also No. 1 in Scrambling at 100% (13/13). This was Glover's 11th Desert Classic, sixth top 25 and possibly a second top 10, joining T10 on debut in 2006. He improves to 5-for-5 on the season with five straight top 25s and a best of T7 at the Shriners two starts ago.
Jan 20 - 5:26 PM

Making his tournament debut and playing La Quinta CC, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 417 Adam Long fired a career-tying-low, 9-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of the Desert Classic to post 19-under 197, up eight places to solo 3rd, three adrift of 54-hole leader Phil Mickelson, who he'll be grouped with in the final threesome in R4.

It's a small sample size (15 total rounds), but the Duke alum has posted two 63s this week, bettering a previous-best 66 in R1 at the season-opening Safeway. He's chasing his first TOUR title in his sixth career event, fifth as a member, with his best finish thus far a T63 at the aforementioned Safeway. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, the 31-year-old camouflaged one bogey with six birdies and two eagle-3s, posting a tidy 1.429 putts per GIR and tying the low round of the day. He's also made 113 starts on the Web.com Tour where his best is runner-up two times, including once last season in 27 events.
Jan 19 - 8:06 PM

Playing the Nicklaus Tournament Course, World No. 70 Adam Hadwin fired a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Desert Classic for a 54-hole tally of 20-under 196, up one spot to solo 2nd, two shy of leader Phil Mickelson, who was also the 18- and 36-hole pace-setter.

The Canadian is chasing his second TOUR title in 127 events, joining the 2017 Valspar 49 starts ago, where he was the 54-hole leader, shot even-par 71 and won by one over Patrick Cantlay. After opening with 65-66, he began in a two-way T3, three back. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, the Louisville alum rang up seven birdies, including birdie-4s at each of the four par 5s, and posted 1.563 putts per GIR. He'll be grouped with Mickelson and PGA TOUR rookie Adam Long in the final 3-ball in R4. The Phoenix resident, who was T68 (last) thru 54 holes at last week's Sony, has posted three consecutive top-6 finishes here, including a solo 2nd in 2017 (as 54-hole leader), highlighted by a tournament-record-tying 59 in R3.
