Prior to the start of the event, Alex Cejka has taken his name out of the field at this week's John Deere Classic. Brendon Todd will jump from the pool of alternates and take the vacant spot.

It's no secret that Cejka has struggled with injuries over the course of his career. He has 22 mid-tournament WDs in 375 career starts. That doesn't even count all the pre-tournament WDs like this one. He was also a pre-tourney WD recently at the Valero Texas Open. The German was arriving fresh off a T13 at A Military Tribute at The Greenbrier. Gamers should remove Cejka from all weekly lineups and keep a close eye on him anytime he tees it up in future events.

Playing his first competitive round in over a month, Sergio Garcia painted a 5-under-par 33-33=66 on day one of the Portugal Masters, his promising opening lap putting him in T4 on the leaderboard with the afternoon session now in play.

That's currently two swings back from joint-leaders Matt Wallace and Eddie Pepperell. Europe is holding its breath this week to see if Garcia can find some form ahead of the Ryder Cup and today's round will have eased some of those concerns. Sergio made the ideal start with birdie-3 at 10 and added further red numbers at 12 and 14. Coming home he outpaced bogeys at 3 and 7 with circles at 2, 5, 6 and 8. "I'm happy with it," he said. "Some really nice things, couple little shots here and there that I could have done better with but overall I felt liked I played a good level. It was nice to have a nice, solid round. The important thing for me today was that I stayed patient."

Eddie Pepperell produced a burst of seven birdies in 10 holes to hoist up a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in round one of the Portugal Masters in Vilamoura, good enough for a piece of the early lead alongside fellow Englishman Matt Wallace.

The two weren't playing partners today but both were part of the European Ryder Cup wildcard discussion despite missing out. Pepperell proved he'd got over that disappointment with T6 in last week's KLM Open to move up to 13th on the Race to Dubai and he continued the good play with his lowest first round of the season today. His scorecard shows he did it in three blocks. The World No. 55 opened with four pars from the 10th and then put his foot on the gas with birdies at 14, 15, 17, 1, 3, 4 and 5 to emerge on the home straight at 7-under. He had further looks but four closing pars ensured a piece of the lead with Wallace, the pair one clear of China's HaoTong Li.

Matt Wallace twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in round one of the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, grabbing a piece of the clubhouse lead with Eddie Pepperell after the morning session.

Somewhat mischievously, the European Tour paired him with Sergio Garcia today, the Spaniard who got the Ryder Cup wildcard that Wallace didn't. "I was determined out there to play well, whether that was with Sergio or anyone else," said the Englishman later. "It's nice to do it with him as he's a cool guy." Wallace pulled out of last week's KLM Open late on but certainly had his freshness back today as he produced the scoring that has brought him three wins this season. Starting at 10th tee, the World No. 46 made a pair of pars and then took flight by chipping in for eagle-3 at 12. After picking up another shot at 15, he reeled off a trio of red numbers at 18, 1 and 2 before finding a final circle at the par-4 5th. This is his lowest opening lap of the season by a shot.

Bryson DeChambeau arrives at the TOUR Championship this week at East Lake Golf Club looking to take home the $10 million prize for placing first in the FedExCup standings.

DeChambeau has gotten hot at the right time, rattling off victories at THE NORTHERN TRUST and Dell Technologies Championship before placing a respectable 19th last week at the soggy BMW Championship. There are just a handful of golfers headed to East Lake with a legitimate shot at the $10 million season prize, and DeChambeau has positioned himself well. He is decent in Driving Accuracy Percentage, ranking 87th, while checking in eighth on TOUR in Strokes Gained: Tee-to-Green. The latter is a very important stat at East Lake. Due to his pair of playoff wins, his DFS price is through the roof right now, but he is a solid option to build your roster around, especially in cash games.

Two-time past champ and World No. 21 Tiger Woods, a pre-tourney 11/1 outright, tees it up in Round 1 of the TOUR Championship at 12:30 pm ET paired with Tommy Fleetwood.

This is the 42-year-old's 15th appearance, fifth in the FedExCup era, and first since T22 in 2013. Overall, he owns eight top 10s, including four runners-up and two wins (2007, 1999), and is the event's all-time earnings leader. The Stanford product and two-time past FEC champion checks in at 20th in the FEC standings and off a T6 at the BMW two weeks ago as a first-round co-leader, his first lead/co-lead of the season in 17 starts. His six top 10s this season are all top 6s or better and are highlighted by runner-up finishes at the PGA Championship and the Valspar, the latter being the only event where he's connected four straight sub-par rounds.

World No. 1 Justin Rose, a pre-tourney 8/1 outright, heads out in Round 1 of the TOUR Championship in the final pairing at 2:00 pm ET with FedExCup leader Bryson DeChambeau.

Four of the last five FEC champions have been in the final pairing in Round 1 so that bodes well for the Englishman. This is his second week as the top-ranked player in the world but his first event wearing that badge, so definitely a story line to watch. The 38-year-old is making his ninth appearance at East Lake with five prior top 10s, highlighted by runner-up finishes in 2015 and 2012. Overall, this is his 40th FEC Playoffs event with 14 prior top 10s, including one win (2011 BMW) and six runners-up, three in the last five postseason tourneys played. The Bahamas resident arrives at No. 2 in the FEC standings and off back-to-back runner-up finishes at the BMW (playoff loss) and the Dell Tech, his ninth and 10th top-10 finishes of the season in 17 starts.

Thorbjorn Olesen warms up for his Ryder Cup debut next Friday by contesting this week's Portugal Masters and the bookmakers have him top of the pile at 14/1.

That's a reflection of the Dane's superb form in the last few months. Sparked by a win at the Italian Open, he's jumped up to sixth in the Race to Dubai and is the only player in the top ten on Europe's points list heading to Portugal this week. The most recent of Olesen's run of five top six finishes came via fourth spot in last month's Nordea Masters while he followed that with T20 in his home Made In Denmark. The slight doubt for gamers is course form. The five-time European Tour winner has played the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course six times but has just one top 20, a T16 back in 2012. On current form, it's fair to expect him to beat that this year, especially with Le Golf National on the horizon. Olesen's 8th place in Birdies per Round this year is another indicator that he should thrive on this easy resort course.

Paul Casey cited a back injury as the reason for his mid-tournament withdraw from the BMW Championship but he's returning to action this week at the TOUR Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.

The Englishman was seemingly a near-lock for a top 20 for the past few years before his recent run of five straight finishes outside the top 20. That includes a mid-event WD at his most recent start where he was T50 (of 69) after 54 holes but called it quits to avoid further weather delays and also rest his back. Since then, he announced his excitement for this week's event via social media, "It's always great to end the season at East Lake for @playofffinale! Looking forward to a great week in Atlanta." It's easy to see why Casey would be excited as he's recorded top 5s in all four trips to East Lake, sitting at T7 or better after all 16 rounds played here. After the event, Casey will head to Paris to prep for his first Ryder Cup appearance since 2008.

Justin Thomas tweaked his wrist during the final round of the BMW Championship but he's feeling confident that he's ready to roll this week as he tries to win his second straight FedExCup title at the TOUR Championship.

JT sits at 5th in the FedExCup standings. He's one of the five golfers in the field who control their own destiny this week at East Lake, when it comes to winning the FedExCup. There is one small detail that might be getting in the way. Arriving at his pre-tourney presser with a taped-up wrist, Thomas said he injured his right wrist while playing the 13th hole during round four of the BMW Championship. "I took last week off, didn’t hit a ball. I chipped and putted a lot, so my short game feels pretty good. But in all honesty, this time of year, it’s nice to take time off." Thomas clarified the tape is precautionary but gamers should still take note of the tiny chance that it's something bigger. With the Ryder Cup on deck, Thomas will want to make sure he's as close to 100 percent as possible when arriving at Le Golf National. But, he'll also want to become the first golfer to grab back-to-back FedExCup titles.

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.
