Ryan Palmer felt more nerves than usual when he stood over his first tee shot in the Charles Schwab Challenge - the first official shot on the PGA Tour in 90 days - and even more freakish was making a 10-foot birdie putt on the second hole with no one around to cheer.

Harold Varner III, playing for far more than silverware this week, set out to celebrate the #BlackLivesMatter campaign in the United States with an inspired effort.

Eight minutes and 46 seconds is the length of time that Floyd was filmed pinned under the officer's knee.

Some of the golf was pretty good, too. He won the title in 2018.

"It felt like kind of a practice round out there, same kind of energy".

On Thursday, he beat many of those same players. "We definitely miss the fans". Tom Lehman, a 61-year-old former champion at Colonial, got in on the act with a 65. Tyler Duncan, Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele joined them later in the afternoon groups. On that occasion, Lehman shot 67 before going on to win by one over Craig Parry with an overall score of 9-under 271. "I think everyone's been trying to do their best to prepare and we're certainly all coming in rested, that's for sure, but no one quite knows where their tournament game is", he told reporters.

Anthony Joshua and Tyson Fury agree terms of two-fight deal
We have agreed with Tyson Fury and the team and we can now move forward with finalising the smaller parts of the deal. Joshua won back his WBA, IBF, WBO and IBO belts from Mexican-American Andy Ruiz Jr in Saudi Arabia last December.

"It felt unusual to be honest, just kind of getting on the first tee and having your name called and not having anyone around to say anything, it felt like, hey, what's going on here", Vegas said.

"I would say that's probably the thing I took away from it is, 'Let's just understand that we're all human beings and need to care about each other, '" he said. "I'm honored that they requested me to do it".

"I think just being out here is successful, to be honest with you, getting started", Palmer said. Branden Grace, Corey Connors, Cameron Champ, Ian Poulter, Ryan Moore and Vaughn Taylor also shot 66 on the par-70 course at Colonial.

But Rory McIlroy is.

Sung Kang made a hole-in-one on the 13th hole and only learnt of it as he approached the green.

"The pressure is all internal versus all maybe the circumstances that surround you".
