Matt Kuchar tidied a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, giving him the early title of clubhouse leader.

Kuchar started his week on the 10th tee and began with four straight holes of GIR/two-putt. Only the last one resulted in a birdie (par-5 13th). His fairways-and-greens style of golf would continue to let him play relatively stress-free golf, racking up seven birdies without dropping a shot, despite taking 28 putts. His stats included 12 (of 14) fairways hit and 15 greens in regulation. If this lead holds it will be his 10th career first-round lead or co-lead with the most recent coming at this year's PLAYERS Championship. This was a much-needed spark for Kuchar as he arrived with four straight finishes of T43 or worse.

Prior to the start of the tournament week, Chez Reavie has removed himself from the field at this week's RSM Classic.

Reavie went quiet over the spring and summer with a stretch of golf that included five straight missed cuts. He rebounded since then with top 45s in seven of his last eight starts, including a T7 at THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. The ASU product hasn't pegged it since the Asian Swing but was initially committed to play here at Sea Island Golf Club. Instead, gamers should remove him from weekly lineups as we'll have to wait until 2019 to see him in action again.

Playing out of the final threesome, World No. 207 Richy Werenksi navigated a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic to wrap on 19-under 265, good for a season-best T3, three shy of overnight leader and champion Matt Kuchar, who shot 69.

This was the 26-year-old's third appearance with progressively better finishes of T41/2018 and T50/2017. He improves to 4-for-4 on the season with two top 25s, two straight after T23 at last week's Shriners. The Florida resident, who was chasing his first TOUR title in 63 events, settles for his third top 3, joining runner-up finishes at the 2018 Barbasol and the 2017 Barracuda. After opening with 65-66-67, he began T3, five back of fellow Yellow Jacket Kuchar, and hit nine (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation. The Massachusetts native offset two bogeys with six birdies, recording 1.400 putts per GIR, and ended the week with 23 birdies against just four bogeys, T1 in the latter.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, World No. 132 J.J. Spaun bogeyed his final hole but still smoothed a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic to finish up on 19-under 265, up two spots to season-best T3, three adrift of overnight leader and champion Matt Kuchar, who shot 69.

After opening with 69-65-65, the SDSU alum began T5, six back, and hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation. He penciled six birdies and was bogey-free thru 17 holes before a 1-putt bogey-5 at 18, dropping him from solo 3rd into a two-way T3. For the week, the 28-year-old squared five bogeys and one double, smothered by 26 birdies, T1 in the latter. This was his third straight Mayakoba and has gotten better each time (T14/2018; T28/2017). He improves to 5-for-5 on the season with three top 25s, three straight, and two top 10s, brushing aside a previous-best T10 at THE CJ CUP two starts ago. Spaun logs his fourth top-3 finish in 63 events, first since T3 at the 2018 Barracuda 10 starts ago.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, World No. 133 Danny Lee enjoyed a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic for a 72-hole total of 21-under 263, up one spot to solo 2nd, one short of overnight leader and champion Matt Kuchar, who shot 69.

The 28-year-old bags his third runner-up in 201 events (198 pro), first since a T2 at the 2015 TOUR Championship. This was his third top 25 at the Mayakoba in six visits, second straight, and second top 10, supplanting a T3 in 2015 three tries ago. After opening with 65-66-67, the South Korean-born New Zealander began T3, five back, and carded seven birdies against one bogey on 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. For the week, he tallied 25 birdies against just four bogeys, T1 in the latter, and improves to 4-for-4 on the season with two top 10s, joining a T10 at the Safeway Open.

Overnight leader and World No. 40 Matt Kuchar fashioned a 2-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic for a 72-hole tally of 22-under 262, good for a one-shot win over runner-up Danny Lee (65) and his eighth PGA TOUR title in 428 events (417 pro).

The 40-year-old, a pre-tourney 50/1 outright, tastes victory for the first time since the RBC Heritage in April, 2014, and improves to 3-for-7 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes. After kicking off with 64-64-65, he added a four-birdie two-bogey effort in the finale to set a new tournament scoring record, eclipsing 21-under 263 by two players. The Georgia Tech alum, who led/co-led after every round, hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.923 putts per GIR. After beginning with a four-shot lead, he went out in 2-under, now leading by three, and came home in level-par, trading two birdies at 11 and 13 with back-to-back bogeys at 14 and 15 (3-putt). This was the Florida native's fourth Mayakoba, third top 25 and second top 10 (T3/2008), and is 2-for-2 on the season, checking in off a T57 at last week's Shriners.

World No. 144 Brice Garnett crafted a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic to finish up on 18-under 266, up three spots to solo 5th, four short of overnight leader and champion Matt Kuchar.

After opening with progressively better laps of 68-67-65, the 36-year-old began T8 on 13-under, seven back. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, registering 1.643 putts per GIR. The Missourian squared a lone bogey-4 at 10, camouflaged by six birdies, ending the week with 22 birdies against just four bogeys, currently T1 in the latter. This was his fifth appearance, fourth top 25, fourth straight, and third top 10, bettering a 6th in 2015. Garnett is 3-for-4 on the season now and this is his first top 30 (T39, CIMB), and his first (individual) top 10 since his breakthrough win at the 2018 Corales a little over eight months ago.

Sponsor invite and World No. 255 Jim Furyk turned in a 4-under-par 34-33=67 after the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic for a four-day total of 17-under 267, up two places to T6 with play winding down.

Playing 2018-19 on conditional status, the 48-year-old was making his second start of the season on sponsor exemptions (CUT/Shriners) and dating to last season, records his second top 10 in his last three starts (T4/Wyndham). This was his second Mayakoba after a MC by four in 2017, and heads to The RSM (already in the field) with a bit of a tailwind. For the week, the Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida, resident totaled 23 birdies versus six bogeys, five against one in R4, and posted rounds of 69-65-66-67. He's currently No. 1 in Driving Accuracy at 83.93 percent (47/56), including 13 (of 14) in the finale.

World No. 163 Scott Piercy hung up a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-32=62 in the final round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic to conclude on 17-under 267, up 26 places on the live leaderboard to T8, good for the low round in the clubhouse and tying the low round of the week with Cameron Champ/R2. UPDATE: With play completed, Piercy finished T6, five shy of overnight leader and champion Matt Kuchar.

This was the 40-year-old's eighth appearance, fourth top 25, third straight, and second top 10, second straight after T4 on last visit in 2017. His 62 is his best lap at El Camaleón GC in 25 rounds -- by three shots -- and he could be heading to his third straight top 10 this season. After opening with 67-68-70, the SDSU alum began T34 on 8-under, five shy of the overnight top 10, and striped 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 17 greens in regulation. He rang up nine birdies, including five consecutive as well as a hat-trick, posting 1.471 putts per GIR. For the week, the Las Vegas native and resident totaled 23 birdies against six bogeys.

Sergio Garcia's bid to go wire-to-wire in the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa came up short as he had to settle for solo second spot with 12-under 276 after a closing 2-under-par 36-34=70 left him three adrift of winner Lee Westwood.

Two clear heading into Sunday's action at Gary Player CC, the Spaniard got off on the wrong foot with an opening bogey and could only find three birdies the rest of the way. There was nothing Sergio could do about Westwood's brilliance as the Englishman closed with an 8-under-64 but there was certainly an element of Garcia playing his hand too cautiously. Twice he laid up on par 5s and couldn't find a red cricle when playing partner Louis Oosthuizen attacked and made birdie and it stopped him building any sort of momentum. In truth, Westwood outscored him by ten shots over the final 54 holes so Garcia never quite had the same fizz in his game after a sparkling 64 on day one. Still, that's now a win and a second for the 38-year-old in his last two starts so, along with his Ryder Cup heroics, it's been an excellent couple of months.

Lee Westwood twirled a closing bogey-free 8-under-par 33-31=64 to score a three-shot win in the Nedbank Golf Challenge in South Africa with 15-under 273, ending a victory drought dating back to April, 2014.

"I’m a bit emotional to be honest," said Westwood after a brilliant back nine helped him win a three-way final-day battle with runner-up Sergio Garcia (-12) and home hero Louis Oosthuizen (-11). "You’re never sure if you’re going to be able to do it again and I managed to." Looking at ease all day and even joking with the crowd when a phone went off, the veteran made an early statement with eagle-3 from three feet at No. 2. He had to stay patient after that with just a single birdie in his next nine holes but Westwood then seized hold of the tournament with a flying finish of five red circles (11, 13, 14, 16 and 17) in his final eight holes. This is the 40-year-old's 24th European Tour win, 43rd victory worldwide and the 13th occasion he's come from behind to take a title. It's also his third victory at Gary Player CC and his comfort levels at the course were evident all week.

Playing out of the final threesome, World No. 133 Danny Lee tacked on a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic to post 15-under 198, T3 on the leaderboard, which is where he began, five adrift of leader and playing competitor Matt Kuchar, who shot 65.

After opening with 65-66, the 28-year-old began in a seven-way T3, three back of leader Kuchar. On eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he outpaced two bogey-5s at holes 2 and 14 with six circles at 4, 5, 8 and a hat-trick at 11-13. The Irving, Texas, resident recorded 1.615 putts per GIR with 27 total putts. He's vying for his second PGA TOUR title in 201 events, joining a come-from-behind (playoff) win at the 2015 Greenbrier 103 starts ago. The South Korean-born New Zealander will play out of the penultimate threesome in R4.
