Brandt SnedekerOAKVILLE, Ontario (Brian Wacker/PGATOUR.COM) — Brandt Snedeker will miss this week’s RBC Canadian Open with a hip injury.

A winner at Glen Abbey in 2013 (and one of RBC’s brand ambassadors), Snedeker said he “tweaked” the hip during the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay. He still shot a final-round 68 and tied for 10th the following week at the Travelers Championship.

Snedeker missed the cut at The Open Championship and flew to Colorado to be examined.

OPELIKA, Alabama (John Zenor/AP) — Scott Piercy's surgically repaired elbow and his game seem to be in fine shape.

Piercy won the Barbasol Championship for his third PGA Tour title, closing with a 6-under 65 for a three-stroke victory.

He began the season on a major medical extension after surgery on his right elbow early last year. Piercy said that did spark initial fears about how he'd fare upon his return.

"I just knew it was a matter of time coming back and it's been a long road," he said. "My whole goal after coming back from surgery was to come back better. The way I played (Sunday) compared to my last two victories was a lot better. I struck the ball so well, so I'd say I'm kind of right where I imagined I would be."
