Prior to the second round of the Mayakoba Golf Classic, Chris Stroud has withdrawn with a neck injury.

Stroud sprinkled five birdies in round one but couldn't avoid the big numbers, swallowing a pair of double bogeys along the way. He took four penalties along the way. El Camaleon Golf Club can really bite hard if you're not careful. Ball-striking wise he split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation. Despite all the hazards found, Stroud was still in the mix with a 1-under 70 which left him flirting with the cut line. His neck decided otherwise, forcing him to back out this morning. This is nothing new for the Texan as it will be his 15th career mid-tournament WD (325 starts). He had three last season alone, making him hard to trust in fantasy formats.

Ben Martin has withdrawn prior to the start of this week's RSM Classic. Stuart Appleby will take his spot in the field.

Martin has been sidelined with a back injury since the Travelers Championship in June. He was inside the top 125 of the FedExCup standings before shutting it down but didn't finish the season there (150th). That means he'll have seven starts on a medical extension in order to keep his full status. Given his commitment this week, it appears he is close to returning but he'll wait until 2019 to start his journey. He will need to pick up 111 FEC Points to meet the terms of his medical. He does already have conditional status secured so that should make his return a little less stressful. Gamers should remove him from all weekly lineups.

Rory McIlroy hasn't won a European Tour event since his home Irish Open in May 2016; he'll look to end that drought with victory in this week's season-ending DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

It's hardly been a poor campaign for the Northern Irishman as he'll peg it up on the Earth Course ranked 6th on the Race to Dubai after three second places and three further top sixes in his 12 starts. But a win has eluded him and he's shown a distinct lack of spark in his last two events, with T54 in the WGC-HSBC Champions and T21 in the Nedbank Golf Challenge. He was a combined 9-over in those events and didn't shoot lower than 71. The good news for McIlroy this week is that he has an outstanding record at this event and in the United Arab Emirates as a whole. The 29-year-old won here in 2012 and 2015 and has finished no worse than T11 on this track in eight appearances. Looking at his full record in the UAE, he's played 29 times and has strikes rates of 13.8% win, 62.1% top five and 79.3% top ten. If Rory can't do it here, perhaps we really should be concerned.

Austin Cook broke through with a win at last year's RSM Classic and he returns this week for a chance to defend his crown.

The straight-shooting Southerner put on a clinic here, 12 months ago. He ranked top 5 in fairways hit and greens in regulation on the week. From there, he was also top 15 in strokes gained around-the-green and strokes gained putting. It was an well-balanced attack. He did all that in his tournament debut, although he had seen the venue numerous times during his days at the University of Arkansas. Cook didn't slow down after that win as he finished his rookie campaign with eight top 25s to his credit, finishing 38th in the FedExCup race. More recently, he's lost strokes to the field in four of his last six starts but a return to happy hunting grounds could provide the needed spark to kick-start the new season.

Jon Rahm will defend his DP World Tour Championship title on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates, Dubai this week.

Big hitters with a hot flat stick tend to thrive on this Greg Norman course and so it was no surprise that the big Spaniard was in contention 12 months ago. Nor, at the time, was it outlandish that once he found himself in that position he pushed on and completed the win. However, at first glance he doesn't look in the form of that last year and yet in actual fact T11-T22 (his last two starts) compares well with the MC-T36 run with which he approached his maiden start. Looking more long term, in 2017 he came into this week with 13 top tens of which two were wins, and this year it is eight top tens and three wins. Swings and roundabouts. Last year's combination was strong: 4th for Driving Distance, 3rd for Total Putting, 2nd for All-Round, and he closed it out with a weekend 65-67.

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.
Nov 11 - 4:12 PM

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.
Nov 11 - 3:53 PM

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.
