Matt Wallace had a change of heart ahead of the KLM Open, withdrawing prior to the start of the event.

The Englishman just won the Made in Denmark a few weeks ago to prop his name into the Ryder Cup conversation but did not get picked. He's won four times on the European Tour all of them coming since the start of 2017. Wallace started strong last week in the Swiss Alps with rounds of 68-69-69 before a final-round 74. He took to social media after the round to say he "ran out of steam." The 28-year-old provided another update today via Twitter, saying "Really disappointed to have to withdraw from the KLM Open. Rest is needed for the body." Wallace has jumped to 57th in the OWGR and the next step in his career progression is to prove his talents against the strongest of fields in majors and WGCs.

The real Rory McIlroy is re-emerging at this week's DP World Tour Championship in Dubai and he nudged four spots up the leaderboard today to T6 following a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in round two which put him at 8-under 136.

That's just three swings back from leader Matt Wallace. McIlroy came into this week looking somewhat flat after T21 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge and T54 at the WGC-HSBC Champions but he's a two-time winner here at the Earth Course and gives the impression he could play it in his sleep. Rory gave himself a bunch of looks on the front nine, making birdies at 1, 2, 6 and 9 while giving one back at 3. He continued to flag hunt and picked up more shots at 10, 14 and 16 coming home, making another bogey at 13. His superb record in this event and in the desert as a whole makes the four-time major winner a huge threat over the final 36 holes.

Matt Wallace stepped on the gas in round two of the European Tour's season-ending DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, thrashing a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 to move into the lead on 11-under 133.

With play nearly done, that's a shot clear of Jordan Smith and Adrian Otaegui, who have one hole to complete. Wallace finished fast with four birdies in five holes in a first-round 68 and ticked his first two today. He kept his forward move going with gains at 5 and 7 before another burst of red at 11, 13 and 14. While Wallace has made the golfing world sit up and take notice with three wins this year, the caveat is that they've all come in fairly minor events. A victory here would change that perception and his play so far is even more impressive given that this is his debut at the Earth Course. Wallace has had a piece of the 36-hole lead three times in his brief European Tour career, converting the first of those when going wire-to-wire in last year's Open de Portugal.

Alexander Bjork was the big mover on the second morning of the DP World Tour Championship in Dubai, signing off with eagle-3 in a 7-under-par 33-32=65 to post the early clubhouse target of 7-under 137.

That's T1 on the live leaderboard alongside Wade Ormsby (7 holes) and Jordan Smith (2). The lead surely won't hold up unless the winds really blow but the Swede will feel he's back at the business end of the leaderboard after starting the day in T39. Bjork set the tone with a pair of opening par breakers and added two more at 6 and 8 following a bogey at 4. Coming home, he surrounded a dropped shot at 13 with red circles at 12 and 14 before ending 3-3-3. That equated to birdie-par-eagle, the grandstand finish achieved with a monster putt at 18. Bjork twice shot 67 when T17 on debut last year and today's 65 is further evidence that he can go low on the Earth Course and play well in the desert (he was T6 at the Dubai Desert Classic earlier this year).

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.
