George McNeill surges to the lead at the Puerto Rico Open with a third round 5-under-par 35-32=67 that lands him one shot clear of Kevin Stadler and Henrik Stenson.

McNeill is tied for the lead in GIR with 83.3 percent hit, and he has parlayed that strong iron game to a 54-hole score of 13-under-par 66-70-67=203. He will be chasing his second PGA TOUR victory and first since the 2007 Open on Sunday. With six players ending the day within three shots of the lead, McNeill is likely to have his hands full in the final round.

With a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's open qualifier for the Valero Texas Open, Daniel Chopra shared medalist honors to earn a berth into the tournament proper.

Chopra covered a lone bogey with seven birdies at The Club at Comanche Trace in Kerrville, Texas, today. The success may evolve quickly into a be-careful-what-you-ask-for experience since he's 0-for-3 at TPC San Antonio with no red numbers in his last five loops. Nevertheless, it can't get much worse for the two-time PGA TOUR winner. He hasn't finished inside the top 35 on the circuit since 2012. Lance Lopez also carded a 6-under 33-33=66 but traded eight birdies with two bogeys. The former University of Texas Longhorn will be making his TOUR debut, as will Thomas Birdsey, who tied for third at the OQ. The Wake Forest Product (via Kansas State) signed for a bogey-free, 5-under 35-32=67 with five birdies. He then survived a 3-for-2 playoff with former TOUR member J.J. Killeen (5-under 35-32=67; 7 birdies, 2 bogeys). Ian Berrigan was eliminated in the playoff. The field of the VTO is now complete at 144.

Matt Every fired a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational to capture a one-stroke win over Henrik Stenson at 19-under 269.

The defending champion began his day with a bogey at the par-4 first, but circled six birdies over the next 10 holes at Bay Hill to thrust his name into the thick of contention. Three of those birdies were from longer than 12 feet, and two were better than 20 feet, so the flat stick propped him up at times. He ended his day with a seventh birdie, holing a putt from 16'10" to break out of a tie with Henrik Stenson, who was still on the course. In addition to the putter, Every's ball-striking was on point as well. Every split 11 of 14 fairways and landed 14 GIR. Stenson had a chance to catch him with a birdie on the par-3 17th and par-4 18th, but failed to convert. With this victory, the Florida Gator is exempt into the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship. He'll also have full status on the PGA TOUR through 2017-2018 by virtue of the new three-year exemption awarded the winner of the API.

Dawie van der Walt spun a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Chile Classic to pick up the first Tour win of his career at 21-under 263.

van der Walt circled seven birdies to just one bogey on his final navigation of Club de Golf Mapocho. Five of the birdies and the lone bogey came on the front nine, with the final two birdies falling on the back. When he circled a birdie on the par-5 18th, he secured a two-stroke margin of victory over Erik Barnes. With this victory, van der Walt moves to fifth on the Tour money list. The top 25 at the end of the regular season earn a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card, so he is sitting pretty.

Zach Johnson lit up Bay Hill Club and Lodge for a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational and takes the clubhouse lead at 12-under 276.

A day after Daniel Berger landed the first albatross in the history of the API, ZJ matched him. Johnson's approach to the par-5 16th from 207 yards landed just short of the hole and curled into the cup the deuce. (You can view the shot at the link below.) He also picked up seven other birdies and swallowed a double bogey and two bogeys on his lap around Bay Hill. Ironically, he followed up his miracle on the 16th with a three-putt bogey on the par-4 17th and a bogey on the par-4 18th. Other than a 21'7" birdie from just off the green on the par-4 fifth hole, all of his birdies fell from inside of 11 feet. He probably doesn't need to stick around to see if his number will hold up, as the lead number on the course at the time of his posting was 18-under.

Brooks Koepka has withdrawn from the Arnold Palmer Invitational during the final round due to pain associated with a rib injury he sustained on Thursday.

It was reported on Golf Channel on Sunday morning that Koepka dislocated his rib on Thursday. Rather than play it safe, he made the decision to try and gut it out. He commented that he did not want to be a quitter, but pulled out following his tee shot on the par-5 12th hole in Sunday's final round. After he walked off the course, Koepka told Golf Channel's Todd Lewis that the second shot on 11 and his tee shot on 12 were the most pain he had experienced on the golf course and that he was having trouble breathing without pain. The PGA TOUR winner was 3-over-par through 11 holes with one birdie, two bogeys and a double bogey on his card. He was 2-under and outside the top 55 on the leaderboard through 65 holes. It's his first in-tournament WD in 25 starts as a professional on the PGA TOUR. Koepka indicated that his goal was to be ready for the Masters.

More bad weather has forced the cancellation of the Madeira Islands Open – BPI – Portugal.

The tournament had already been reduced to 36 holes for the second year in succession and further torrential rain, which left parts of the Santo da Serra course under water, meant the players never left the locker room on Sunday. Denmark's JB Hansen held the clubhouse lead on 4-under, one shot ahead of a group of eight players while the entire field was separated by just six shots. It is thought to be the first European Tour event to be cancelled due to bad weather since the Compaq European Grand Prix at Slaley Hall in 1998.

The Madeira Islands Open – BPI – Portugal has been reduced to 36 holes after another round of brutal weather limited play on Saturday.

The continuation of the opening round was suspended by nearly five hours today, so tournament officials sliced another 18 holes off what was scheduled to be a 72-hole event. It's nothing new at Clube de Golf do Santo da Serra in Portugal as last year's edition was also whittled to 36 holes due to fog that just wouldn't lift. JB Hansen goes in the books with a one-stroke lead over eight golfers after 18 holes. Because of the new plan, the field was cut at low 65 and ties. This means that 82 golfers are within six shots of each other with only 18 holes to play. Adding to the intrigue, a shotgun start is planned for 8:00 a.m. local time on Sunday. "After just one round it’s going to be an absolute rat race with a huge number of people on the same scores," said Peter Whiteford, who is one shot off the lead. "It’ll be a shotgun start so it’s not like you’ll be under the cosh coming down the stretch because you’ll never know where the scores will come from."

Henrik Stenson took control of the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a bogey-free 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round and leads by two strokes at 16-under 200.

The Swede circled four birdies and an eagle on his trot around Bay Hill Club and Lodge. His putter produced on three occasions, rattling home birdies from 11'5" and 12'8" on the par-4 ninth and 15th holes and landing an eagle from 19''10" on the par-5 16th. He put on a ball-striking display, splitting 12 of 14 fairways and landing 16 GIR. Stenson gained over four strokes tee-to-green and ranks inside the top 10 in both strokes gained: tee-to-green and strokes gained: putting. He entered the week as the favorite of many, and he has done nothing to disappoint.

Daniel Berger compiled quite the colorful scorecard in his third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, ultimately signing for a 4-under-par 34-34=68 and improving to 7-under 209.

Berger recorded the first albatross of the PGA TOUR season and the first in the history of this event when he holed out on the par-5 sixth from 237 yards at Bay Hill. (Watch the shot at the link below.) His play on the par 5s was remarkable. In addition to that albatross, he wrote down an eagle on the 16th, a birdie on the 12th and a boring par on the fourth hole. That means he played the par 5s in 5-2-4-3. The eagle fell from 38'6" and the birdie was a chip in. He also added a 14'11" birdie on the par-4 ninth and an 8'1" birdie on the par-3 17th. He spread four bogeys across his round, thus erasing some of his magical work. This isn't the first time the Florida State University product has made noise during the Florida Swing. He lost The Honda Classic in a playoff, so don't sleep on him in the finale.

At 1-under-par 73-70=143, J.B. Holmes missed the cut on the number at the Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Well, so much for that. He split 21 (of 28) fairways but reeled off only 23 greens in regulation. Holmes also erased nine birdies with six bogeys and a double. This not only ends a strong consecutive paydays streak at five, but it's also his first MC in nine appearance at Bay Hill. Other notables that have the weekend off as well include: 143--2004 champ Chad Campbell; Paul Casey; Tony Finau; Andres Gonzales; Colt Knost ... 144--Sangmoon Bae; Graeme McDowell ... 145--Shane Lowry ... 146--2006 champ Rod Pampling; Chris Kirk ... 147--1999 champ Tim Herron ... 148--2014 U.S. Amateur champ Gunn Yang ... 149--Rory Sabbatini ... 150--Robert Streb; Scott Stallings ... 151--Boo Weekley ... 159--1990 champ Robert Gamez.

Rory McIlroy figured things out in his second round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational after which he signed for a 6-under-par 34-32=66.

When the planet's No. 1-ranked golfer hits 17 greens in regulation and settled for a 70, as McIlroy did on Thursday, you figured that the law of averages would swing in his direction the next day. Right on cue, he went 7-for-12 in scoring chances with just one bogey. He opened with a birdie from 14'4" at the par-4 10th. His second dropped in at the par-5 16th. McIlroy then ripped off five in a row beginning with an 18-footer at the par-3 second. He capped the streak with a 12-footer at the par-5 sixth. According to Golf Channel, it's his longest par-breaker streak on the PGA TOUR. At 8-under 136, he's five strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
