As a result of recently breaking his hand, Chris Kirk will not compete in next week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

This was expected when Kirk proclaimed on Twitter on July 15 that he was "unlikely" to peg it at both Firestone next week and Whistling Straits for the PGA Championship on Aug. 13-16. He's 23rd in the FedExCup standings.

Rory McIlroy made official today that he will not return to competition at next week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational where he is the defending champion.

He's still on the mend from rupturing a ligament in his left ankle. "Unfortunately, I will not be defending my World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational title," he said McIlroy. "Best of luck to all the competitors, and I look forward to returning to Firestone in 2016." The PGA Championship is the week after, so don't hold your breath for him to defend that title, either. He has no reason to rush his recovery.

Travis Bertoni finished co-runner-up at the 2014 Utah Championship and returns this week for another crack at Thanksgiving Point Golf Club.

Bertoni arrives in Utah ranked 32nd on the Web.com Tour money list. He is 10-for-16 on the season including a T3 at the Nova Scotia Open just three weeks ago. Bertoni currently ranks ninth in total driving and second in ball-striking. Another strong appearance at Thanksgiving Point would go along way in the battle to secure PGA TOUR status.

Cameron Tringale tackles Robert Trent Jones Golf Club at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Tringale looks to stay perfect at the Quicken Loans, currently 4-for-4 with all four inside the top 45. It will be a tough task considering his current form, missing the cut in three of his last five and not collecting a top 40 in his last seven. Tringale is still searching for his first PGA TOUR victory but it's hard to imagine it coming this week on the heels of such poor form.

James Hahn arrives at this week's Quicken Loans National ranked 34th in the FedExCup standings.

Hahn closed out last week's RBC Canadian Open with a T11, signing for red numbers in all four rounds. It was his second top 15 over his last three starts. Nothing jumps off the page when looking at his statistical profile, but there are no red flags either, as he ranks 58th in the all-around ranking. Hahn is worthy of consideration this week, but gamers shouldn't let his last three starts steal the entire conversation.

John Senden readies for his sixth appearance at this week's Quicken Loans National.

The Aussie arrives in good form, collecting a pair of top 15s in his last six starts. He is now 14-for-20 on the season, climbing to 73rd in the FedExCup standings. Playing on unknown green surfaces at a new venue, this elite ball-striker may have a slight advantage as he doesn't rely on his flat stick. Senden is setting up to be a nice DFS sleeper this week.

Daniel Chopra heads to Gainesville, Virginia, to compete in this week's Quicken Loans National.

The Swede cracked the field via sponsor exemption, and will be his fourth start of the season. He is 1-for-3 thus far, with a T38 at the Puerto Rico Open his only cut made. Chopra does have tournament history on his side as he's teed it up in the D.C. area three times, compiling top 20s in each of his past two visits. There is no need for gamers to take a risk on the veteran this week.

David Lingmerth preps for his third playing of the Quicken Loans National and enters the week 34th in the FedExCup standings.

Lingmerth turned 28 years of age on the 22nd of July and has posted two top 10s on his season of 22 starts, including a T6 at The Greenbrier Classic and his maiden PGA TOUR title in sudden death at the Memorial over Justin Rose, who happens to be defending this week. The Swede chased the P1 at the Memorial with a T64 at the Travelers Championship and followed the Greenbrier with a T74 at The Open Championship. Savvy gamers will recall however, that he opened the Old Course with a course-record-tying, 7-under-par 29 before falling back to earth with an inward 40. Lingmerth is 1-for-2 at the QLN with a T54 in 2013 and a MC (by seven strokes) in last year's edition.

John Merrick heads to Gainesville, Virginia, to contest his eighth playing of the Quicken Loans National.

Merrick is exempt on TOUR through the end of the season via his win at the 2013 Northern Trust Open, his lone win in 236 career starts. If he plans on keeping his card for next season, he better make some noise soon, entering this week's QLN 155th in the FedExCup standings. The 33-year-old has logged just three top 25s in 2014-15 on 24 starts, missing 15 cuts, including four of his last five. Sans the 2007 edition, Merrick has played in each Quicken Loans from 2008-2014 cashing four times in seven starts. He posted back-to-back top 25s in 2010 and 2011 going T16 and T15 respectively, but has since gone MC-MC-T46.

Svoboda notched his first two career TOUR top 10s in 2013-14 en route to finishing 94th in the FedExCup standings, advancing to the second round of the FEC Playoffs prior to being eliminated.

Between the Northern Trust Open in mid-February and The Greenbrier Classic earlier this month, Svoboda finished over par in 16 consecutive starts, a cumulative 82-over-par during that span. The 35-year-old ranks 179th on TOUR in scoring average at 71.919. He has managed to cash in his last two starts, finishing T48 at the Barbasol Championship and T58 at last week's RBC Canadian Open.
