Taking on a waterlogged Aronimink Golf Club, Tiger Woods ended his week at the BMW Championship with a 5-under-par 31-34=65 to reach 17-under 263 on the week, good for a top-10 finish, his sixth of the season.

It's easy to nitpick if you're a perfectionist but Woods gave himself nine scoring chances from inside 13 feet today. He converted on five of those which helped him gain 1.462 strokes putting on the round. He also provided a chip-in birdie highlight at the par-4 sixth hole which vaulted him into contention early. Bogeys at 10 and 14 would ultimately drop him out of the winning conversation. A wet course helped his cause but piping 13 (of 14) fairways today was a very promising sign for future events. Currently in a share of fifth place, he's projected at 19th in the FedExCup race which is easily enough to earn a ticket to the Playoffs finale at East Lake Golf Club.

Race to Dubai leader Francesco Molinari moved a step closer to becoming Europe's No. 1 with a first-round 4-under-par 33-35=68 at the season-ending DP Tour Championship that left him in a tie for fifth and two back from joint-leaders Jordan Smith and Adrian Otaegui.

Only 'Moliwood' partner Tommy Fleetwood can catch him at the top but even then Molinari can wrap it all up by finishing in a tie for fifth with one other or better. The two Ryder Cup stars played together at the Earth Course today and the Italian dominated for most of the round. Indeed, he moved into a tie for top spot with six birdies at 1, 5, 7, 10, 11 and 14 but lost some focus late, missing short putts at 15 and 18 for bogey. It meant he finished the day in T5 and just a shot ahead of Fleetwood (T10), who enjoyed a two-shot swing at 18 by holing from off the green for birdie. "A good day, the putting was fantastic for the first 14 holes," said the World No. 6.

Last year's winner Jon Rahm overcame a late wobble in round one of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, starting his bid to win back-to-back titles at the Earth Course with a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to sit just one behind clubhouse leaders Jordan Smith and Adrian Otaegui. UPDATE: Rahm ended R1 in T3, a shot back.

That's T4 on the live leaderboard with the last groups in the 60-man field finishing up. World No. 8 Rahm cruised through the first 15 holes today, making birdies at 1, 6 (nearly a hole-in-one), 7, 12, 14 and 15. But he three-putted the 16th for a first bogey of the day and then plonked his tee-shot at the par-3 17th into the drink. Staring double in the face, Rahm limited the damage to a bogey before producing a beautiful pitch to the 18th for a closing birdie. The big-hitting Spaniard shot 69-68-65-67 when winning on his course debut last year so he's ahead of schedule today with a 67. This layout really does suit his game and it's hard to think he won't play a big part over the next 54 holes.

Adrian Otaegui produced a flawless round of golf on day one of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, hoisting up a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to tie for the lead with Jordan Smith.

That's a shot clear of Danny Willett and John Rahm, although Otaegui's fellow Spaniard has four still to play. It was a simple strategy for the World No. 76 at the Earth Course today as he cashed in on all four par 5s (2, 7, 14 and 18) and added red numbers at 1 and 10. He said: "I was solid from tee-to-green. I left myself lots of birdie chances and I thought I putted well." Otaegui has bumped his Race to Dubai ranking up to 25th thanks to T3 in the Turkish Airlines Open and T16 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge over the last two weeks. The 25-year-old shot three bogey-free rounds out of four in Turkey so, after pulling off the same feat today, he really is cashing in on all the good stuff. With a win, a second and a third this season, don't expect this to just be an enjoyable day in the Dubai sun. Otaegui could be a major player this week.

Fast-finishing Jordan Smith poured in an eagle and four birdies over his final six holes to storm in the clubhouse lead in round one of the DP World Tour Championship at the Earth Course in Dubai with a 6-under-par 36-30=66. UPDATE: Smith ended R1 in T1 with Adrian Otaegui.

That beats the mark of fellow Englishman Danny Willett (67) with a third of the 60-man field done for the day. Smith gave little hint that he might be the one looking down on everyone else when he played the first 12 holes in even par after trading birdies at 9 and 10 with bogeys at 1 and 12. But birdie-2 at 13 lit the fire, he followed it with eagle-3 at 14 and added further red circles at 15, 16 and 18 (after bunker shot hit pin and stopped dead). This is his lowest opening round on the European Tour and, if it holds, would be his first R1 lead at this level although he managed the feat three times on the Challenge Tour in 2016. Smith finished T25 on his tournament debut here last year, shooting 66 in his final round, so he's 12-under for his last 36 holes at the Earth Course.

Webb Simpson makes final preparations for this week's RSM Classic and heads out in Round 1 at 11:10 am local time with Zach Johnson and Jim Furyk on the Seaside Course.

The 33-year-old is the top-ranked OWGRer in the field (No. 20) and a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright. He checks in off a T15 at the Shriners two weeks ago in his season debut (68-69-68-66), which was his third straight top-15 finish after T4 at the TOUR Championship and T6 at the BMW Championship. This is the Wake Forest alum's seventh RSM with three prior top 25s, most recently a T7 four tries ago, and two top 10s, posting a best of P2 in 2011 as a first-round co-leader. He opened last year's edition with 67-68, T12 at the midpoint, but WD prior to R3 due to his father's illness.

Ben Martin has withdrawn prior to the start of this week's RSM Classic. Stuart Appleby will take his spot in the field.

Martin has been sidelined with a back injury since the Travelers Championship in June. He was inside the top 125 of the FedExCup standings before shutting it down but didn't finish the season there (150th). That means he'll have seven starts on a medical extension in order to keep his full status. Given his commitment this week, it appears he is close to returning but he'll wait until 2019 to start his journey. He will need to pick up 111 FEC Points to meet the terms of his medical. He does already have conditional status secured so that should make his return a little less stressful. Gamers should remove him from all weekly lineups.

Rory McIlroy hasn't won a European Tour event since his home Irish Open in May 2016; he'll look to end that drought with victory in this week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

It's hardly been a poor campaign for the Northern Irishman as he'll peg it up on the Earth Course ranked 6th on the Race to Dubai after three second places and three further top sixes in his 12 starts. But a win has eluded him and he's shown a distinct lack of spark in his last two events, with T54 in the WGC-HSBC Champions and T21 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge. He was a combined 9-over in those events and didn't shoot lower than 71. The good news for McIlroy this week is that he has an outstanding record at this event and in the United Arab Emirates as a whole. The 29-year-old won here in 2012 and 2015 and has finished no worse than T11 on this track in eight appearances. Looking at his full record in the UAE, he's played 29 times and has strikes rates of 13.8% win, 62.1% top five and 79.3% top ten. If Rory can't do it here, perhaps we really should be concerned.

Austin Cook broke through with a win at last year's RSM Classic and he returns this week for a chance to defend his crown.

The straight-shooting Southerner put on a clinic here, 12 months ago. He ranked top 5 in fairways hit and greens in regulation on the week. From there, he was also top 15 in strokes gained around-the-green and strokes gained putting. It was an well-balanced attack. He did all that in his tournament debut, although he had seen the venue numerous times during his days at the University of Arkansas. Cook didn't slow down after that win as he finished his rookie campaign with eight top 25s to his credit, finishing 38th in the FedExCup race. More recently, he's lost strokes to the field in four of his last six starts but a return to happy hunting grounds could provide the needed spark to kick-start the new season.

Jon Rahm will defend his DP World Tour Championship title on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai this week.

Big hitters with a hot flat stick tend to thrive on this Greg Norman course and so it was no surprise that the big Spaniard was in contention 12 months ago. Nor, at the time, was it outlandish that once he found himself in that position he pushed on and completed the win. However, at first glance he doesn't look in the form of that last year and yet in actual fact T11-T22 (his last two starts) compares well with the MC-T36 run with which he approached his maiden start. Looking more long term, in 2017 he came into this week with 13 top tens of which two were wins, and this year it is eight top tens and three wins. Swings and roundabouts. Last year's combination was strong: 4th for Driving Distance, 3rd for Total Putting, 2nd for All-Round, and he closed it out with a weekend 65-67.

Prior to the start of the tournament week, Chez Reavie has removed himself from the field at this week's RSM Classic.

Reavie went quiet over the spring and summer with a stretch of golf that included five straight missed cuts. He rebounded since then with top 45s in seven of his last eight starts, including a T7 at THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. The ASU product hasn't pegged it since the Asian Swing but was initially committed to play here at Sea Island Golf Club. Instead, gamers should remove him from weekly lineups as we'll have to wait until 2019 to see him in action again.

Playing out of the final threesome, World No. 207 Richy Werenksi navigated a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic to wrap on 19-under 265, good for a season-best T3, three shy of overnight leader and champion Matt Kuchar, who shot 69.

This was the 26-year-old's third appearance with progressively better finishes of T41/2018 and T50/2017. He improves to 4-for-4 on the season with two top 25s, two straight after T23 at last week's Shriners. The Florida resident, who was chasing his first TOUR title in 63 events, settles for his third top 3, joining runner-up finishes at the 2018 Barbasol and the 2017 Barracuda. After opening with 65-66-67, he began T3, five back of fellow Yellow Jacket Kuchar, and hit nine (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation. The Massachusetts native offset two bogeys with six birdies, recording 1.400 putts per GIR, and ended the week with 23 birdies against just four bogeys, T1 in the latter.
