Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 22 Gary Woodland, a pre-tourney 14/1 outright, sleepwalked to a birdie-less 6-over-par 38-38=76 in the third round of the Sony Open in Hawaii and at 3-over 213, will not have a Sunday tee time.

A total of 81 players made the 36-hole cut of 2-under 138 so a second cut of low 70 and ties took place after 54 holes and fell on 2-under 208. Woodland, last week's runner-up on Maui, had recorded four straight top-13 finishes at the Sony, including three top 10s, and will not play 72 holes here for the first time since a missed cut in 2011. After opening with 71-66, he began T46 on 3-under, one inside the cut line, and squared six bogeys on six (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation. The Kansas alum lost 3.663 strokes off-the-tee and posted a dismal 2.111 putts per GIR and -3.705 SG: Putting. Joining him on the bench for R4 are: 209- Eric Dugas .. 210- Cameron Champ; Martin Trainer; Steve Stricker; Jason Dufner .. 211- Sean O'Hair; Mackenzie Hughes .. 212- Brady Schnell.. 214- Joey Garber.

Rickie Fowler will make his first start of the new year as he preps for this week's Farmers Insurance Open in San Diego, California.

Fowler has plenty of success at this week's venue but none in recent editions. He started his Farmers career with finishes of T5, T20, T13, and T6. Since then, he's missed the cut in four of his last five with the lone cut made going for a T61. He's done all that with a different schedule in the lead-up. Sometimes playing in Abu Dhabi right before. Sometimes warming up at Kapalua. His short-term course history might deter some gamers from drafting him this week but overall he still presents himself as a top tier pick, anytime he pegs it. Fowler ended 2018 with top 20s in 12 of his last 13 OWGR eligible events. It shouldn't take him too long to get back into the groove.

Jason Day came from three off the pace during the final round of the 2018 Farmers Insurance Open to chase down Alex Noren and he returns this week for a chance to defend his crown at Torrey Pines.

The Aussie has been hit or miss here in La Jolla, California. He's played here nine times and his highlights include a four pack of top 10s. That includes wins in 2015 and 2018. His other five finishes? They've all been T35 or worse. Three of those being missed cuts. In his pre-tourney presser today he said with a difficult test like Torrey Pines you quickly know where your game is leaking. Day shook off the rust with a T13 at the Sentry TOC just a few weeks ago so that should help. Gamers should consider Day one of the favorites to hoist the hardware this week but they also shouldn't be too surprised if his game isn't in mid-season form just yet. His main goals for the season are always to peak in the biggest events. Day said he put in a lot of work with his drivers and irons over the last week and currently feels confident. At the same time he said tournament golf is a whole different animal so we will have to wait and see which Day shows up this week at Torrey Pines.

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.
Jan 20 - 7:09 PM

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.
