Prior to the second round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, Chris Stroud has withdrawn with a neck injury.

Stroud sprinkled five birdies in round one but couldn't avoid the big numbers, swallowing a pair of double bogeys along the way. He took four penalties along the way. El Camaleon Golf Club can really bite hard if you're not careful. Ball-striking wise he split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. Despite all the hazards found, Stroud was still in the mix with a 1-under 70 which left him flirting with the cut line. His neck decided otherwise, forcing him to back out this morning. This is nothing new for the Texan as it will be his 15th career mid-tournament WD (325 starts). He had three last season alone, making him hard to trust in fantasy formats.

Peter Uihlein bobbed and weaved his way toward a 4-under-par 32-34=66 while playing at the Seaside Course in round one of The RSM Classic, giving him a share of seventh place on the day-one leaderboard.

Uihlein found just half of the potential 14 fairways today as he played in cold and windy conditions at the coastal track. He recovered nicely from there to gain 3.092 strokes on approach and land 12 greens in regulation. Uihlein also got some help from the flat stick, including birdie conversions from 17'5" and 24'10" at the par-4 second and par-4 fifth, respectively. Uihlein is making his tournament debut this week but he had no troubles getting comfortable. He will now head to the easier Plantation Course on Friday. The only other golfer to match Uihlein's 66 at Seaside today was Brian Harman.

Battling with Mother Nature and Sea Island's Seaside Course, Brian Harman pieced together a 4-under-par 35-31=66 during round one of The RSM Classic, sharing top honors from the Seaside starters and also sharing seventh place on the live leaderboard.

On a cold and windy day, the Seaside Course was playing about as tough as we'll ever see it. While the field was averaging just over 71 on the Seaside today, Harman managed to go five lower. The recipe for success was keeping the ball in front of him as he split all 14 fairways today. Giving himself lots of mid-range scoring chances, his putter cooperated with three conversions from outside 11 feet in addition to 4'4" splash at the par-5 15th. The final birdie came from the fringe (33'5") at the 16th. Harman may be 7th on the live leaderboard but he has to feel great about his position as Peter Uihlein was the only other golfer to record a 66 at the Seaside Course today. Harman entered the week with 10 straight finishes outside the top 30, so this is a nice potential slump-buster. He will need to keep his foot on the gas for three more days.

Wesley Bryan swallowed an 8-over-par 39-39=78 during round one of The RSM Classic and then withdrew from the event. There was no injury cited.

Bryan had a rough go at it today. He split nine (of 14) fairways but lost 4.194 strokes off-the-tee as a result of three penalties. That is nothing new for Bryan who entered with negative SG:OTT in 32 of his last 33 starts. He also rinsed his approach shot at the par-5 15th hole. On the bright side, Bryan still has his full status this season so he will have about 15-to-20 more attempts to right the ship. This is now nine straight missed cuts for Bryan. He's too talented from fairway to pin to continue to miss cuts at this rate.

Charles Howell III put on a stripe show en route to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 33-31=64 during round one of The RSM Classic, good for a two-shot lead as play winds down on Thursday.

After playing PXG sticks over the last few years, CH3 has made the transition to Titleist over the last month. The new clubs performed well today as he piped all 14 fairways and all 18 greens in regulation. That kind of ball-striking allowed him a stress-free stroll around the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club, taking 30 putts along the way. Playing his 30th round at the RSM Classic, this is his lowest lap at the Plantation Course although he does have a 62 on his Seaside resume, posted during R4 of the 2010 edition. This will be his eighth career first-round lead or co-lead on the PGA TOUR, first since the 2017 John Deere Classic. He's gone on to finish top 5 in four of those events and finished outside the top 15 in the other three.

Defending champion Austin Cook cruised to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 while taking on the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club in round one of The RSM Classic, giving him the early clubhouse co-lead alongside J.J. Spaun with play still in progress.

Cook racked up 23 birdies and swallowed just two bogeys all of last year at the RSM. He didn't swallow his first bogey until Saturday, the 59th hole of the event. He opened with a bogey-free 66 at the Plantation last year (same as today). There is an obvious comfort factor here at Sea Island Golf Club for this Arkansas alum. Today, Cook striped 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation. It's unclear if 66 will be enough to co-lead at the end of the day, but if it does then it'll be Cook's first career lead after 18 holes. He was T6 here after R1 last year and then held the solo lead after 36, 54, and 72 holes.

J.J. Spaun went right to work at Sea Island's Plantation Course, coasting to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 during round one of The RSM Classic, setting the very early clubhouse lead on Thursday afternoon.

Starting his day on the back nine, Spaun circled birdies at 10, 15, 16, and 18 to grab an early lead and make the turn at 4-under. He would add a hole-out birdie at the par-5 fourth and another circle at the par-4 sixth. Overall, he peppered 17 greens in regulation today but took 31 swipes with the flat stick. If this co-lead holds by day's end then it'd go in the books as his third career first-round co-lead (2017 Sanderson Farms, 2018 Quicken Loans National). The San Diego State product was T28 after R1 here last year but surged to a runner-up finish by week's end. That remains the best finish of his career but he'd love to change that come Sunday afternoon. He will turn his attention to the Seaside Course for the final three rounds.

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.
