Jason Dufner is 5-under-par 68-67=135 at the midpoint of the Wyndham Championship, seven strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's getting the job done but he'll need to make more birdies for a serious run at the title. Meanwhile, he announced after his round that he will forego next week's Barclays in an effort to rest for the remaining three events in the FedExCup Playoffs. "I’ve had a pretty heavy schedule since Firestone or so and I’m looking forward to the second part of the Playoffs," he said. "I’m just not going to be able to do eight out of nine weeks with the TOUR Championship and Ryder Cup at the end of it." As for his position thus far at Sedgefield, Dufner added: "(I’m) hanging around," Dufner said. "A couple of bogeys here and there — wish i could get those back. ... Just need to get some rest. I am a little fatigued, as I said, and I’m just looking forward to playing two more days here in Greensboro."

Chris Wood blitzed the front nine in 29 shots on his way to a breakthrough victory in the BMW PGA Championship over the famous West Course at Wentworth.

The Englishman began the day 3 shots off the lead, but immediately thrust himself into genuine contention with a magnificent approach to the 473-yard par-4 1st hole which left him a mere 2-feet for birdie. He dropped the putt and when he drained another from 20-feet for eagle on No. 4 he was flying. Red numbers followed at 5, 7 and 9 as he made the turn 6-under the card, at which point he had escaped the field and held a 4-shot lead. The back nine was a struggle. He dropped a shot on 10, got it back on 11, and worse was to follow: shaky bogeys on 14, 16 and 17 made for a nervous conclusion, but he completed the par on 18 that confirmed the win. The 54-hole leader in 2010, Wood went backwards in round four. This year he made up for it with a 3-under-par final round of 29-40=69 for a winning 9-under 279 total and a one shot victory over Rikard Karlberg. "One thing helped," he said afterwards, "we had perfect numbers all day and that makes scoring a lot easier."

The final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational began at 10:19 a.m. CT with threesomes off split tees.

When third round play was completed on Saturday, the original plan for Sun. was twosomes off a single tee. Overnight rain nixed that idea and officials pushed back start times a little over three hours. The final threesome consisting of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth, Ryan Palmer and Webb Simpson are scheduled out at 12:20 p.m. After opening in twin 70s to make the cut by one, defending champ Chris Kirk dialed-up a 5-under 65 (six birdies, one bogey) in R3 to vault 29 places to T15. He is in the sixth-to-last group off No. 1 tee and begins the final round seven back of Spieth.

Ryan Palmer authored a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in today's third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational for a 54-hole tally of 11-under 199, up one into a two-way T2, one back of leader Jordan Spieth.

The Texas A&M alum played 28 holes on Saturday. Before he could begin his third round, he returned earlier in the morning to finish off 10 holes leftover from his second frame on Friday. The Colonial CC member showed no signs of fatigue, kicking-off with back-to-back birdies but did give them back with consecutive dropped shots on holes 4 and 5 on failed scrambles. The 39-year-old righted the ship from there, playing his final 13 holes in bogey-free 4-under, circling Nos. 9, 11, 15 and 16. He had a prime scoring chance on the par-4 18th from just 37 inches, but missed. Nonetheless, Palmer earned the final Sunday pairing with fellow Texan Spieth.

Second-round co-leader Webb Simpson pieced together a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 11-under 199, down one into a two-way T2, one shy of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

Grouped with Spieth in final threesome, the 30-year-old began the third round co-leading with Martin Piller -- the third member of the final threesome -- one clear of four players, including Spieth. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 2.807 SGTTG but a pedestrian -0.336 in SGP. The North Carolinian circled six against three bogeys, including a walk-off 5 at the last, lipping-out a par-saver from just from 38 inches. He carded five conventional birdies, all from 12 feet and in, and added a hole-out birdie-3 from a greenside bunker at the 14th. Simpson's bogey at the last dropped him out of the final pairing on Sunday.

Jordan Spieth smoothed a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach the three-quarter mark on 12-under 198, good for a one-shot lead over Ryan Palmer, who shot 66, and 36-hole co-leader Webb Simpson (67).

The Texan squared a lone bogey, his first in his last 29 holes, but it came on his final hole. His tee shot on the 18th was pulled left into the rough, stymied by a tree, and was unable to get up-and-down from 28 yards short of the green, missing his par putt from nine feet. It was a somewhat disappointing finish to what was otherwise a vintage navigation of Colonial CC. Spieth mustered four (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation with five conventional birdies, each from inside of 12 feet, and added a chip-in from 31'11" away at the 11th for birdie-4. This is his third 54-hole lead of the season winning the Hyundai TOC by eight and losing the Masters by three.

Harris English fashioned a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 10-under 200, up 12 places to T3 and a season best in his 60th round.

Play is still in progress but the 26-year-old is the clubhouse leader in birdies thru 54 holes with 18. He circled six and five, respectively, in his first two laps en route to 67-69, but removed some of the luster with five bogeys and a double bogey-5. The Georgian limited the damage in the third frame to a lone bogey at the par-3 fourth, three-putting from 53'4", and more than erased it with seven birdies on 17 greens in regulation. His split featured three from between 13 and 17 feet with a long of 42'2" on the par-4 12th. English had a chance for one better but missed from 5'2" at the 18th.

Matt Kuchar twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 29-34=63 in today's third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach 7-under 203, up 33 on the live leaderboard to T11 and good for the low round of the week.

For a second day in a row, the 37-year-old arrived at the par-4 ninth (his last) with a stellar round going. He was bogey-free 6-under yesterday and ate a triple bogey-7 to knock the gloss off it. The Florida native was blemish-free 7-under upon arrival to the ninth today, and managed a routine two-putt par. He went out in 1-under 34, circling a single birdie at the par-5 11th (from 15'4"), but went nuts after the break with six birdies over his first seven holes, including four straight on holes 4-7 -- highlighted by a long of the day dropping from 21'5" at the par-4 fifth. Kuchar's 63 is a season best in his 53rd round and a tourney best in his 33rd round.

Scott Hend endured a rollercoaster ride in round three, but ended the day with an imperious eagle on the last which left him alone at the top of the leaderboard after a 1-over-par 36-37=73, good enough for a 54-hole total of 9-under 207.

The two-time European Tour winner experienced frustration, tree difficulties and a confrontation with the gallery (on 14) before the final hole drama allowed him to recover some poise. And yet after 11 holes it had all seemed so serene thanks to 9 pars, one bogey on 7 and a birdie on 11. It gave him a 2-shot lead and he duly smashed his drive on the par-5 12th 331-yards down the fairway. However he failed to make birdie, found his drive at the next stuck close to a tree and barely moved it with his second. It led to bogey, the first of three on the bounce, and he approached the last hole one behind the lead. But for the second day running he notched eagle, this time sending a majestic 160-yard 8-iron approach to 3 feet and dropping the putt with minimum fuss. He heads into the final round one ahead of Tyrell Hatton and two clear of Lee Westwood and YE Yang. "Obviously it's a big one," he said after the round, "but right now it's just another tournament. What will be will

A total of 70 players made the cut on 1-over 141 at the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational but at 2-over 68-74=142, Kevin Chappell was not among them.

Chappell posted his 142 aggregate out of the morning wave on Friday, while the entire PM wave was stranded due to darkness. The projected cut at that time was 1-over 141. Sixty (of 61) PMers returned on Saturday and the projected held true so the 29-year-old's birdie-less 4-over 74 in R2 sealed his fate earlier than he may have thought. This is his fifth MC of the season in 16 starts and first since the Houston Open. Other notables with early exits include: 142- Chez Reavie; Jerry Kelly ... 143- 2013 champ Boo Weekley; Jim Furyk; Bryson DeChambeau; Freddie Jacobson ... 144- Will Wilcox; Keegan Bradley; Louis Oosthuizen ... 145- John Senden ... 147- Patton Kizzire; Stewart Cink ... 148- Smylie Kaufman ... 150- Ian Poulter.

Sponsor invite Martin Piller continued his onslaught of Colonial Country Club twirling a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 8-under 132, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Webb Simpson.

Simpson posted his aggregate yesterday while Piller returned on Saturday morning to put his on the board. He was 1-under thru six holes, 5-under total when play was suspended on Friday due to darkness. The Dallas native and resident circled the ninth and the 10th after the restart, the latter a bomb from 44'4", but got so excited he canceled them out with a double bogey-7 at 11. He righted the ship from there, with further birdies at Nos. 13, 15 and 18, walking-off with a 19-inch gimme after hitting his approach from 122 yards stiff.

Kyle Reifers authored a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in the two-day second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 7-under 133, up two into a four-way T3, one back of 36-hole leaders Webb Simpson and Martin Piller.

The 32-year-old was even-par thru seven holes (beginning off the back nine), and 4-under total when play was suspended on Friday due to darkness. He returned on Saturday morning and immediately squared a bogey-5 on the 17th (failed scramble) to turn birdie-less 1-over. The Ohio native rebounded for four birdies and a bogey-free inward 31, circling Nos. 2, 4, 7 and 8, three from four feet and in with a long of 26'9" at the par-3 fourth.
