Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 27 Kevin Kisner spun a 6-under-par 35-29=64 in the second round of the 100th PGA Championship at Bellerive CC to reach 9-under 131, up three spots on the live leaderboard to solo 2nd, one back of playing competitor and 36-hole clubhouse leader Gary Woodland. UPDATE: With R2 completed on Saturday, Kisner remained T2 and will play out of the final threesome in R3 with Woodland and Brooks Koepka.

Kisner's 64 is his low lap in 16 majors -- previously 65 in R3 of the 2016 PGA where he finished T18 -- and ties his season low in 64 rounds. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he was bogey-free 7-under thru 17 holes before a walkoff bogey-5 at 9 (failed scramble). The South Carolinian posted -0.963 SG: Around-the-Green but 3.539 SG: Approach and 3.514 SG: Tee-to-Green. He carded seven birdies at 10, 11, 13, 15, 17, 18 and 7, all from inside of 15 feet, recording 1.571 putts per GIR and 2.024 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. The 34-year-old finished T2 at The Open three starts ago after leading or co-leader after each of the first three rounds and finished T7 in last year's PGA after leading or co-leading after each of the first three rounds as well.

Ashley Chesters set the clubhouse target on a day of weather disruption in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain; his 5-under-par 32-34=66 left him one clear of Gregory Bourdy in a first round that will remain incomplete at day's end.

The Englishman hinted that he liked this track 12 months ago when he finished T12, but on that occasion it was his weekend work which helped (69-68) after he went 72-74 through 36 holes. The start is also notable for potentially (reliant on the end of the lap tomorrow) being his maiden first round lead at this level of the sport (he has twice shared second). His front nine was flawless with birdies at the second, fifth and eighth, however he opened the back nine with a mistake at the tenth. He made immediate repairs with red at No. 11 and then closed with a pair of ticks at 17 and 18. A five-time top ten finisher on the European Tour he is still seeking a top five, never mind a first win.

Sergio Garcia was tied for the lead on 3-under-par after 14 holes of his opening round when the threat of lightning halted play at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain. UPDATE: Play due to restart 5pm local time

Garcia, who has two wins and a series of big finishes at the famed tree-lined track, had given a masterclass for most of the day with birdies at 11, 13, 18 and 2 against a lone dropped shot at 3. He'd added pars at 4 and 5 before the hooter sounded at 2.50pm local time. That put play even further behind after inclement weather and lightning had pushed tee times back two hours this morning. Garcia was tied at the top with Australian Jason Scrivener (14), France's Grégory Bourdy (13) and England's Ashley Chesters (12) while Lee Westwood, playing alongside Sergio, was a further shot back.

World No. 342 Danny Willett put on a stripe show in round one of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea, firing a 3-under-par 33-36=69 to end the day in tied second spot with Si Woo Kim and just a single stroke behind leader Chez Reavie.

After shaking off injury and loss of form, the 2016 Masters champ showed some decent form again over the summer with four top 25s in five starts but has missed cuts at the Safeway Open and the British Masters in the last two weeks. However, he was back on it today and piped all 14 fairways and missed just a single green in regulation despite the windy conditions. The Englishman bogeyed the opening hole but responded with a trio of birdies at 4, 5 and 6 before adding another on the par-5 9th. He got it to 4-under with a gain at 12 but gave the shot back at 13 and rounded off with five pars. Willett was also in second place after R1 of July's Irish Open where he went on to post T6 so don't be surprised to see him stay prominent on the leaderboad as the week continues.

Hitting 14 fairways out of 14, Chez Reavie authored a 4-under-par 35-33=68 to post a one-shot lead over Danny Willett and Si Woo Kim after the first round of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea.

It's a further stroke back to Byeong Hun An, Rod Pampling, Michael Kim, Ian Poulter, Scott Piercy, Nick Watney and Austin Cook. Reavie shot a 66 to sit tied second after the opening lap here last year (finished T15) and he's quickly into his stride again this week despite the cool and windy conditions which saw just three players shoot in the 60s. Playing in the 08:55 group from 10th tee, the 36-year-old exchanged a birdie at 12 with a bogey at 13 before getting under par again for the day with another circle at 16. He made his move to the top of the board with par breakers at 1, 2 and 8 on a flawless second nine. As well as splitting every fairway, he pelted 15 GIRs. This is Reavie's fourth R1 lead on the PGA Tour in solo play (also led this year's Zurich Classic). He rode the first to victory in the 2008 Canadian Open but had to settle for T26 at Pebble Beach the last time he set the pace on day one in 2016. The World No. 64 closed with twin 69s for T43 in last week's CIMB Classic.

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.
