Scott Piercy claimed the RBC Canadian Open as his second PGA TOUR win with a final-round 3-under-par 32-35=67, finishing the week at 17-under 62-67-67-67=263.

Piercy started off the finale on fire, following up an opening par with four birdies. He then dropped a shot at the par-3 eighth and another at the 14th, but a bounce-back birdie at the 15th proved the difference. He then dodged bullets from William McGirt and Robert Garrigus from the clubhouse, and when McGirt left his par putt short and Garrigus followed up by leaving his birdie bid short the trophy was his. For the week, he was fourth in Strokes Gained-Putting and ninth in driving distance. While he was set to defend his title at the Reno-Tahoe Open, this victory gains him entry into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational as well as the PGA Championship.

Jason Day signed for a 3-under-par 32-36=68 following his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead with Gary Woodland and Ryan Palmer.

Last week's champ got after it again early at TPC Boston today. He opened birdie-birdie-birdie, the last dropping from a round-long 19'9" at the par-4 12th hole. He added birdies at Nos. 2 and 4, but would square bogeys at the par-4 fifth and ninth holes to quash thoughts of the outright lead. However, he averted a third bogey with a par save from 11'2" at the par-4 13th. Overall, Day piped nine (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. In addition to his quest for a fourth victory in his last five starts, the FedExCup points leader is gunning to become the sixth golfer to win consecutive starts in Playoffs' history.

Ryan Palmer laced TPC Boston for 17 greens in regulation en route to a 3-under-par 36-32=68 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

He may be reeling on the inside following the sudden death of his father, but Palmer's golf game has not suffered. In fact, the familiarity of his craft is probably large part of the reason why he's having success in the FedExCup Playoffs. Last week's T6 boosted him 23 spots to 33rd in points. He wasted no time in dipping into red numbers at TPC Boston today with a 15-foot birdie conversion at the par-4 first hole. He gave it back at the par-3 third where he missed his only GIR, instead finding a greenside bunker on the way to a 4. But Palmer regrouped on his inward side, picking off three birdies, including rolls of 12'5" and 24'1" at Nos. 10 and 16, respectively. At the time he signed his card, he shared the clubhouse lead. And at last check, he ranked fifth in the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 3.904.

Gary Woodland fashioned a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Woodland clipped the previous clubhouse co-leaders by one stroke when he walked off with a birdie-4 at the 18th hole. Prior to it, he rung up four birdies against two bogeys. His highlight may go in the books as the putt of the tournament as his conversion on the par-4 sixth measured 70 feet, three inches. He also connected from 14'10" at the par-4 12th to stop a bogey-bogey slide at the time. Woodland averted a third square with a par save from 10'8" at the par-4 fourth. He entered the week ranked 44th in the FedExCup standings.

Padraig Harrington alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's going to be out of commission for several months with a knee injury.

The Irishman wrote, "I've had my MRI on my injure right knee. I've a tear in the meniscus. 3 months of managing it in the gym and then a winter op." He didn't specify how long he expects to be sidelined after surgery, but at 44 years of age, it'll probably be a little longer than if he were in his prime. Harrington finished the PGA TOUR season at 103rd in the FedExCup standings. He fully exempt through 2016-17 for winning The Honda Classic this past winter. He's currently 124th in the Race to Dubai standings, but that's only relevant to explain why he won't be missing anything on the European Tour while he recovers.

Bradley Dredge compiled a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round at the M2M Russian Open and holds the halfway lead of 10-under 132.

That's a stroke clear of Lee Slattery and two shots in front of first-round leader Daniel Gaunt. Dredge took a different route to his second straight 66 at Skolkovo Golf Club. After hitting 15 greens in regulation in round one, he found just 11 in the right number on Friday but was a perfect 7-for-7 in scrambling to keep a bogey off his card. He started fast with birdies at 10, 12 and 13 and circled another at the par-5 18th to turn in 32. He quietened on the second nine with eight pars and a single birdie at 5. Dredge has made just one bogey over his first 36 holes but if he keeps putting this much pressure on his short game, he'll face a big challenge to hold his lead over the weekend. The most recent of his two European Tour wins came way back in 2006 so his loss of the winning habit is another factor to overcome.

In a brief report filed by GolfChannel.com's Rex Hoggard on Aug. 29, it's anticipated that Sergio Garcia will return to competition at the BMW Championship on Sept. 17-20.

Hoggard cited Garcia's agent, Carlos Rodríguez, as the source. The golfer started the FedExCup Playoffs slotted 31st in points. He sat out The Barclays and slid to 43rd. He's not competing in this week's Deutsche Bank Championship, but will remain inside the top 70 to advance to the third leg at Conway Farms where he placed T18 in 2013. It behooves the Spaniard to play if for no other reason than it will mark his 15th start on the PGA TOUR this season, so he'll be fulfilling the membership requirement without the need of a dispensation for the Open de España in May. The TOUR has granted waivers for homeland events to golfers who can claim another tour as a home circuit.

Bubba Watson sat out today's pro-am for the Deutsche Bank Championship due to a sore back.

Just as Jason Day (back) and Dustin Johnson (illness) withdrew from last week's pro-am for The Barclays, the lefty will take his turn concerning gamers about his ability to peg it at TPC Boston for Friday's first round. While Day (win) and DJ (T9) thrived at Plainfield, each issue must be approached individually, but investors can find relief in knowing that Watson is expected to play the DBC. He's scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 9:30 a.m. ET. Of course, nothing replaces the peace of mind of being prepared in the case of an 11th-hour WD.

Scott Jamieson hung up a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round at the M2M Russian Open at Skolkovo Golf Club, good enough for a share of the day one lead alongside New Zealand's Daniel Gaunt.

The duo are a shot clear of Lee Slattery and Bradley Dredge while an eight-man group at 4-under includes defending champion David Horsey. Taking advantage of his early tee time, the Scot circled birdies at 10 and 13 on his opening nine and reeled off four on the spin after making the turn. Only one of his gains came on the four par 5s so he'll feel there's more in the tank over the next three days. Jamieson paved the way for his bogey-free lap by splitting 12 (of 13) fairways while he hit 13 greens in regulation. He had 5-for-5 scrambling stats and was also a perfect 4-for-4 from sand. The 31-year-old was solo third when this event was staged at Tseleevo last year so the switch to a new venue has made no difference. In fact, he was also sixth in a Challenge Tour event in his only other start in Russia so he clearly relishes his trips to this part of the globe.

Although eligible for fully exempt status on the PGA TOUR in 2015-16, Lee Westwood will not accept membership.

This is the word from International Sports Management (via Golfweek.com) for whom Westwood is a client. The Englishman is also going through a divorce and will instead focus on the European Tour in what will be a Ryder Cup year. He went 13-for-15 on the PGA TOUR in 2014-15 with one top 10 and another seven top 25s before finishing 109th in the FedExCup standings. As a non-member, the 42-year-old will be capped at 12 starts plus special invitations into the majors and THE PLAYERS.

Will Wilcox has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship due to an injury to his right knee.

In a descriptive entry on his website, Wilcox wrote, "On Monday morning of this week, I slammed my right knee into the dash of my rental car, which was set up much differently than my car, while getting in to drive to a fundraiser golf event outside of Atlanta. After attempting to treat it myself with rest and ice, the pain and swelling continued. Over the past few days, I have sought out multiple medical opinions. ... After appointments, X-Ray and a MRI, we have found deep bruising to my patellar tendon, which explains the current pain and difficultly in applying weight to my right knee and leg." At 89th in the FedExCup standings, he will not advance in the Playoffs. "The 2015-16 season will be here very soon," he added. "I am looking forward to getting 100% healthy, rested and prepared for full status on the PGA TOUR for next season and beyond."

In a thorough article at TCPalm.com, Freddie Jacobson revealed that he sat out the last three months of the season due to an ailment and subsequent surgery for his seven-year-old son, Max.

Jacobson was mysteriously outside the ropes since missing the cut at Colonial in late May. It turns out that he devoted his time and attention to caring for Max, who was diagnosed with an anomalous origin of the right coronary artery. Open-heart surgery was suggested and eventually performed in Boston on Aug. 3. Max will be fine and projected to enjoy a normal life span. As for his father, the 40-year-old PGA TOUR winner has tentatively circled the Frys.com Open on Oct. 15-18 to resume competing. Because he finished 167th in the FedExCup standings, Jacobson will be equipped with a medical extension under the family crisis provision. "There’s no guarantees in a sporting world the TOUR would do something like this," he said of the medical. As for his golf game, he added, "I saw my coach for the first time last week and we’ll see where the golf swing is. But I know it’s going to be really tough to leave home this time."
