PGA Tour: Surging Troy Merritt takes lead at Barracuda Championship

Mike Weir makes his debut on the Champioins Tour on Friday

The points change so quickly around here ... Players lose a point for a bogey and three points for anything higher.

Maverick McNealy and Emiliano Grillo were tied for second. "But I do feel that if I put in the work, I'm going to have success". "I played well all day. I definitely have been getting off to really good starts my first three rounds, and just got to keep that going tomorrow".

Branden Grace has been ruled out of next week's US PGA Championship after testing positive for coronavirus during the Barracuda Championship.

His girlfriend, Danielle Kang, is tied for the lead in OH in the LPGA Tour's return.

"It was pretty fun for the six or seven months that they were off, practicing with a top-five player in the world and working with Butch Harmon", McNealy said.

The shorter courses should suit his game well and the PGA Tour Champions website has Weir listed as eighth in the power rankings for this week's restart versus a deep field that includes senior circuit legend Bernhard Langer, a slimmed-down Colin Montgomerie, newcomer Ernie Els, and fellow rookies Jim Furyk and K.J. Choi.


"I'm fully into this but there's a different context when you're 50 compared to when you're in your early 20s and kind of trying to make your way", he said.

"Birdies count double", Grillo said. There's a lot of opportunities on the front nine.

Grace, 32, was tied for second entering the third round of this week's PGA Tour event - taking place opposite the WGC-FedEx St Jude Invitational - when he was forced to withdraw due to the coronavirus.

Atwal, who has made the cut in each of the three events he has teed up since PGA Tour's "Return to Golf" in June, will tee up at Wyndham Championship in the last event before the FedExCup play-offs for the truncated season. The top two from the top 10, not already eligible, will get spots in the U.S. Open in September at Winged Foot. Joseph Bramlett and Richy Werenski followed at 28.

"I found out shortly after my round on Thursday that I was in", Merritt said. "It's always an honor to play in a major, but my focus is on this week".
