Sam Burns was one of two recipients of the Champions' Choice invite, earning him a seat in this week's Forth Worth Invitational at Colonial Country Club.

Each year the past champions of this event choose two golfers that have never been eligible for the event. This year the honor went to LSU product Sam Burns and the young Chilean Joaquin Niemann. This is a big deal for Burns since he's exhausted all seven of his sponsor's invite this season but this special invite doesn't count toward that number. The same will go for the Memorial Tournament next week where he's already locked up a spot. Currently sitting at 195 Non-Member FedExCup Points, Burns needs 74 more FEC Points to secure Special Temporary Membership. Currently ranked 6th in the Web.com Tour money list, his PGA TOUR card for next season is well on it's way to being locked up, so he's playing relatively stress-free as the youngster continues to plant his flag on both tours.

World No. 43 Charl Schwartzel has removed his name from the field at this week's Fort Worth Invitational. First alternate David Hearn will take his spot in the field.

Schwartzel has recorded back-to-back top 10s as well as a solo 3rd in the start before that when he was paired with Louis Oosthuizen at the team event. Something clicked for Schwartzel during that Zurich Classic team event as he arrived that week with nothing better than T28 on the season (10 starts). Given his recent run of good play, gamers shouldn't be too concerned about a pre-tournament WD but we will update if any injury news pops up. The South African's recent hot streak has moved him up to 61st in the FedExCup race.

Peter Uihlein had a change of heart ahead of this week's Fort Worth Invitational, pulling his name from the field on Monday.

The PGA TOUR rookie sits at 66th place in the FedExCup leaderboard. He's posted finishes of T5 and T21 in his two most recent starts but he's decided to sit this week out, instead of riding the hot streak. Perhaps he committed to this event when his game was still slumping and now that's he's found some form he feels it's better to wait for a course that suits his eye. That's pure speculation, but one possible reason for this WD. If any definite news pops up then we will pass along an update but for now, gamers should remove Uihlein from all weekly lineups.

Keith Mitchell will take a pass on Colonial Country Club as he withdraw from the Fort Worth Invitational on Monday before the start of the event.

Mitchell posted a T3 last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson. That provides him with some nice security in the FedExCup race so this WD may for rest purposes. With a course that often takes driver out of your hands, it makes sense that Mitchell would sit this one out if given the choice. On the season he ranks 9th in driving distance but just 135th in driving accuracy. Gamers shouldn't be too concerned about this pre-tourney WD and he'll remain a great pick for weekly gamers when he returns to action.

World No. 56 Jimmy Walker handed in a 4-under-par 33-34=67 after the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson for a 72-hole total of 16-under 268, dipping one place to T6, seven adrift of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 168 Keith Mitchell hung up a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to finish up on 19-under 265, up four spots to T3, four adrift of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65.

World No. 160 J.J. Spaun twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-31=63 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to post 19-under 265, up four spots to T3, four shy of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65.

This is the SDSU alum's second top-3 finish in 47 events, second this season in 16 starts, joining a solo 2nd at the RSM back in November.
