Prior to the start of his round-one tee time, Louis Oosthuizen has withdrawn from this week's PGA Championship. There was no injury cited but he has struggled with back injuries throughout his career. First alternate Kelly Kraft has taken his spot in the field. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Communications confirmed that it was a back injury that caused this 11th-hour WD. He returned to action two weeks later with a T28 at THE NORTHERN TRUST (71-66-68-73).

Oosthuizen has a long history of pre-tournament (and mid-tournament) WDs. Most have been due to back troubles. There wasn't any major concerns over the last year but in hindsight, Jonathan Wall of PGATOUR.com may have dropped a hint that his back was bothering him when he tweeted, "Louis Oosthuizen is going back to a 46-inch shaft (PX T1100 HZRDUS Smoke) in his PING G400 LST driver. Was at 45 inches. Length and shaft provided better feel and stability. Also going to 38-inch putter due to back bothering him at 35." As for Oosthuizen himself, he entered the week ranked 70th in the FedExCup standings so we should see him in a few weeks when the FEC Playoffs begin.

Tim Wilkinson torched the course at today's open qualifier into the Sanderson Farms Championship, twirling an 8-under-par 33-31=64 to beat the next closest competitor by two strokes, easily earning a seat into this week's alternate-field event.

The smooth-swinging lefty traded nine birdies with a lone blemish on his way around Deerfield Golf Club in Canton, Mississippi. The 40-year-old made just three starts on the PGA TOUR last season, going 2-for-3 with nothing better than a T48. He spent most of his time down on the Web.com circuit but couldn't find much success there. As for the Sanderson Farms, Wilkinson finished T33 here in 2015 and missed the cut in 2016. Others to qualify today include . They all turned in scores of 6-under 66 and then survived a 10-for-3 playoff.

Tiger Woods is qualified for the WGC-HSBC Champions but won't make the trip to China, joining a long list of talent that is passing on the opportunity to take on Sheshan International Golf Club.

Woods was last seen winning the TOUR Championship and then going winless at the Ryder Cup. He admitted that fatigue was likely a part of that equation. It's no surprise then, that he's foregoing a trip to China. Woods has played in this event twice but has not since 2010. We likely won't see Woods again until his event in the Bahamas, the Hero World Challenge. Other DNPs include: Justin Thomas, Jordan Spieth, Rickie Fowler, Bryson DeChambeau, Bubba Watson, Webb Simpson, Phil Mickelson, Henrik Stenson, Marc Leishman, Sergio Garcia, Kevin Kisner, Louis Oosthuizen, Daniel Berger, Aaron Wise, Gary Woodland, and Matt Kuchar.

Sergio Garcia claimed his 15th European Tour title when a 2-under-par 35-34=69 sealed a four-shot triumph over Shane Lowry on 12-under 201 in the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain.

No less than three of those titles has come at Valderrama and all of them in his last four starts. Moreover he now owns 13 top ten finishes on the RTJ Sr track in just 14 appearances. It was a long and drawn out week however. Play was finally completed - and only 54 holes at that - on Monday morning. Garcia had a comfortable lead and he rarely looked like frittering it away. In all he made one birdie (at the fourth) and one bogey (at the fifth) on his final round front nine, then there were three ticks on the way home (at 10, 14 and 17) against one dropped shot at the 13th. It's been a curious year for the Spaniard. It started with a win in Singapore, he endured a 0-for-4 major record, lost form, earned a Ryder Cup captaincy pick, broke records there, and now looks set for a neat end-of-season run in.

Already shortened to 54 holes, the Valderrama Masters will need Monday to complete the final round as play was called for the day, due to inclement weather, with action set to resume at 9:10 a.m. local time on Monday morning.

This was a somewhat likely scenario all week as inclement weather has been harassing the event since the start. For a brief moment, it looked like there was a window today for them to return to the course but it didn't turn out that way. The horn sounded at 1:49 p.m. local time today right as Lee Westwood was attempting to come from behind and steal this trophy away from Sergio Garcia who currently leads by three strokes (11 holes remaining in his round). As for Westwood, he birdied four of the opening eight holes today before play was halted. With this being the final event that of the regular season, there will be plenty of important Race to Dubai movement when play resumes tomorrow morning. You can follow along via the Race to Dubai Predictor.

Mother Nature has poked her head into the mix again at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, suspending play during the final round due to inclement weather in an event which has already been reduced to 54 holes. The horn sounded at 1:49 p.m. local time and there is no current timetable for play to resume.

Stop-and-start play has forced this event into 54 holes, but they'd prefer to get it all finished today. The Monday forecast is also rocky. At the moment Sergio Garcia is even par thru seven holes (10-under on the week) to maintain a three-shot lead over Lee Westwood. From the back of the pack, Gavin Moynihan was making the move of the day with five birdies and an eagle through 15 holes (-6) which vaults him into a share of sixth place on the live leaderboard. The youngster is currently 73rd on the Challenge Tour Road to Oman. There are about 45 minutes remaining on this current storm and then we may get a break from the weather for 2-to-3 hours, at least in terms of thunder.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, World No. 28 Rafa Cabrera Bello birdied his final four holes en route to a 7-under-par 35-30-65 in the final round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to post 15-under 273, up one place to T3, six short of overnight leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 64.

This was the Spaniard's second CJ CUP after T11 last year (71-70-72-71), and his second start of the season, chasing a T50 at last week's CIMB, where he closed in bogey-free 6-under 66. The 34-year-old, playing his third season on the PGA TOUR, ties his career best in 72 events, joining a T3 at the 2018 WGC-Mexico and a 3rd at the 2016 WGC-Dell Match Play, where he beat defending champ Rory McIlroy 3-and-2 in the Consolation Match. After opening with 73-70, T22 thru 36, he closed with twin 65s, including 14 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation in R4, outpacing two squares with seven birdies and one eagle-3. For the week, Cab Bello, a 3-time winner on the Euro Tour in 313 events, tallied one eagle and 23 birdies versus eight bogeys and one double.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 114 Ryan Palmer twirled a bogey-free, 10-under-par 33-29=62 in the final round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to reach 15-under 273, up 14 spots to T3, six adrift of overnight leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 64.

The 42-year-old records the low round of the week and a new course record in the second playing of the CJ CUP. After opening with 72-70-69, he began T17 on 5-under, eight back but just two shy of the overnight top 10. Playing out of the seventh-to-last threesome, the Texas A&M alum landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, posting a tidy 1.438 putts per GIR. He racked up 10 birdies, including three birdie-2s, and walked off with seven straight at 12-18. For the week, the Texan totaled 21 birdies versus four bogeys (T1 in that stat), and one double. This is his 18th top-3 finish in 384 events, first since a P2 at the 2018 Farmers as the 36-hole leader. It's also Palmer's second top-5 finish in his last five starts after T5 at THE NORTHERN TRUST, where he closed in bogey-free, 6-under 65.
Oct 21 - 7:19 AM

Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, World No. 38 Gary Woodland fired a 9-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES for a 72-hole total of 17-under 271, up two places to solo 2nd, four shy of overnight leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 64.

The Kansas alum was making his second appearance after T40 last year (78-72-74-69). It was his second start of the season, arriving off a T5 at last week's CIMB, where he was a 36- and 54-hole co-leader, buoyed by a career-low, 11-under 61 (11 birdies, 0 bogeys) in R2. After opening with 73-67-68, the 34-year-old began T4 on 8-under, five back. On 13 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, he recorded 1.500 putts per GIR and bagged 11 birdies again, including four straight and six in a seven-hole stretch on the front nine. The Delray Beach, Florida, resident gave Koepka all he could handle, 30 versus 35, but Koepka responded with 29 against Woodland's 33 (5 birdies, 2 bogeys) on the home half. He records his 9th runner-up in 229 events, first since T2 at the 2017 Honda, and 13th top-3 finish (3 wins, 9 runners-up, 1 show). For the week, Woodland was No. 1 in total birdies with 27 against eight squares and one double.

Overnight leader Brooks Koepka confirmed his ascent to the top of the world rankings with a dominant four-shot triumph in THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES; he completed his assault on the track and the field with a final round of 8-under-par 35-29=64 for a 72-hole total of 21-under 267.

The 2018 Player of the Year has started his 2019 season in style. "Everything I've done this year is working," he said. "I don't want to change anything." Although the scores tell of a brutal man-handling of the opposition in actual fact runner-up Gary Woodland, who finished two clear of Ryan Palmer and Rafa Cabrera Bello, was a constant threat, often sharing the lead on the back nine. But Koepka thrived with the dualling. He exchanged three ticks (3, 5 and 6) and two crosses (2 and 4) on the front nine, but was crowned the winner and World No. 1 with a flawless sub-30 back nine. He birdied 10, 12, 13 and 15 then chipped in from greenside rough for another at 16 before draining a 25'0" eagle at the 72nd hole. A 12th worldwide victory, in a seventh country and his third of 2018. Not bad for a man who missed nearly all of the first four months of the campaign to injury. He landed 56 of 72 greens in regulation and made 1.750 Putts per GIR for the week.
Oct 21 - 4:01 AM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, first-round leader and World No. 362 Ashley Chesters navigated a bogey-free, 1-under-par 34-36=70 in the weather-delayed second round of the Andulcia Valderrama Masters for a 36-hole total of 6-under 136, down one spot to solo 2nd, four adrift of leader Sergio Garcia, who shot 64.

The 29-year-old's first-round lead was his first in 58 Euro Tour events and he'd still be leading the tourney at halftime (by two) were it not for tournament host Garcia's bogey-free jaunt, which tied his lowest lap at Valderrama. So, technically not halftime, as the weather-plagued event has been reduced to 54 holes, but he's a strong second at the three-quarter pole then after scribbling down 17 pars and one birdie. Playing his third full season on the main circuit, the Englishman owns five career top 10s, two this season in 30 starts, and has a daunting task on Sunday with the continued (bleak) weather forecast, and attempting to chase down 14-time Euro winner and major champion Garcia.
Oct 20 - 11:43 AM

Defending champ and World No. 31 Sergio Garcia painted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the weather-delayed second round of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters to post 10-under 132, up two places to top of the board, four clear of first-round leader Ashley Chesters, who followed 66 with 70.

The tournament host is actually the 2-time defender, winning the 2017 and the 2011 editions, the latter the most recent playing prior to last year. After not hitting a shot of his second frame on Friday, he overcame yet another weather delay on Saturday morning to record the low round of the week. The 38-year-old, arriving off a 3-1-0 record three weeks ago as a captain's pick at the Ryder Cup, ticked seven birdies, highlighted by a walk-off hat-trick. He's chasing his 15th European Tour title in 277 events, first this season in 14 starts, and first since this same tournament last year. With 72 holes no longer achievable, officials are attempting to complete 54 holes to make the event official, which would include a Monday finish if necessary. Sunday's weather forecast calls for thunderstorms (80% chance of precipitation), while Mondays is AM thunderstorms (40%).
