Phil Mickelson charged up the leaderboard in the third round of the BMW Championship with a 8-under-par 32-32=64 and will enter the finale at 16-under 200.

Mickelson circled 10 birdies to just two bogeys in his tour of Crooked Stick. His most impressive stretch began with a 13'4" birdie on the par-4 fourth and ended with a 10'10" birdie on the par-3 13th. In that 10-hole binge, he found seven birdies without a blemish. After suffering a bogey on the difficult par-4 14th, he bounced back with birdies on three of his final four holes including one from 15'6" just off the green on the 18th. He will try and capture his first win since Pebble Beach in February on Sunday.

Alexander Levy strengthened his chances of a Ryder Cup debut with victory in the Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco; his final round 2-under-par 34-36=70 giving him a one-shot victory over Alvaro Quiros on 8-under 280.

The victory is the Frenchman’s fifth on the European Tour and in one sense came a week early (he is a China specialist; next week’s destination). He started the day one stroke behind the leader Alvaro Quiros and made an early move with birdies and the third and fifth holes. A bogey-birdie exchange at 7 and 8 was a blow but no-one from the top of the leaderboard was going low so he could afford to then add seven pars in a row, keeping what was now a two shot edge. Another bogey at 16 was a worry but at the par-3 17th he hit to four feet and poured it in. A two putt par from 15’0" was enough to clinch the win. Oddly only three of his five wins came over 72 holes.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 64 Ryan Moore rallied for a 2-under-par 38-32=70 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open but still dipped three spots to solo 4th on 11-under 205, two adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Zach Johnson and Andrew Landry.

The 34-year-old was the only player (of 156) bogey-free thru 36 holes and ended that streak immediately with bogey-5 at hole 1. He book-ended another bogey-5 at 9 to turn birdie-less 2-over, but salvaged the round with a blemish-free inward half, carding four birdies at 11, 14, 15 and 17, two from between 19 and 22 feet. The UNLV alum hit seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.618 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.630 around-the-green. He recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.439 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. The Tacoma, Washington, native will play out of the penultimate threesome on Sunday. His most recent (of five) TOUR titles is the 2016 John Deere, where he was the 54-hole leader by one.

This was his 13th event of the season and just the second time he won't play all 72 holes, MC'ing the Farmers seven starts ago. After opening in 75-70, the reigning PGA TOUR Rookie of the Year was one of 13 golfers to make the cut on the number. On six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, he conjured just one birdie-4, outbalanced by bogey-5s at 15 and 1. The SDSU alum lost 1.830 strokes around-the-green and 0.976 on-the-green. Joining him on the bench for Sunday: 218 Cameron Champ .. 219- Hudson Swafford; Bill Haas; Brandon Harkins; Joel Dahmen .. 220- John Senden .. 224 Brice Garnett.

After kicking off with 70-65, he co-led with Ryan Moore and hit eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.910 strokes approaching-the-green. The Georgia resident squared two bogeys at holes 2 and 4, outflanked by six circles at 3, 6, 11, 14, 15 and 18, two from between 11 and 21 feet, adding a hole-out birdie-4 at 14 from 17 feet away. He posted 1.545 putts per GIR and 3.512 SG: Putting with 24 total putts. Johnson's most recent (of 12) TOUR titles is the 2015 Open 65 starts ago,, where he came from behind and won in a 3-man, 4-hole aggregate playoff.

This is the Texan's first 54-hole lead/co-lead in 32 events. His career best is P2 at the CareerBuilder back in January where he was T2 thru 54 holes. After opening in 69-67, the second-year player began T3, one back of co-leaders Johnson and Ryan Moore.

UPDATE: With R3 complete, O'Hair is T5, four back of co-leaders Zach Johnson and Andrew Landry, and will play out of the penultimate threesome on Sunday.

World No. 306 Trey Mullinax hung up a course record at the AT&T Oaks Course on Moving Day at the Valero Texas Open, painting a 10-under-par 33-29=62 to post the 54-hole clubhouse lead on 12-under 204 and climbing 24 places on the day. UPDATE: With R3 complete, Mullinax is solo 3rd, one back of co-leaders Zach Johnson and Andrew Landry, who he'll be grouped with in the final threesome on Sunday.

This is the ninth VTO since moving to TPC San Antonio in 2010. The previous course record was 63 (x2), most recently Martin Laird in R4/2013, which he rode to a 2-stroke win. Mullinax, playing this season on conditional status after finishing 137th in FedExCup points last year as a rookie, also records a new career low in his 124th round, previously 63 in R1 at the 2017 Puerto Rico Open. This is his second VTO (MC by five last year) and arrived off a T22 at the Corales four weeks ago and a career-best T8 at the Valspar as an open-qualifier. The 25-year-old began T25, seven back (74-68), and hit seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 4.184 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 11, smothered by seven birdies and two eagle-3s, the first a hole-out at 14 from 95'2" away, adding a walk off from 16'1". The Alabama alum posted 1.308 putts per GIR and 4.897 SG: Putting with 22 total putts.

An 18th hole birdie allowed Alvaro Quiros to grab the solo 54-hole lead in the Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco; his level-par round of 36-36=72 giving him a total of 7-under 209 and a one shot advantage over Mikko Ilonen, Christian Bezuidenhout, Alex Levy and Erik Van Rooyen.

The Spaniard calmly two-putted that 54th hole having lashed two shots to the green of the 575-yard par-5 to smarten up a card that was hard working after the glory of the first two days. He made front nine errors at the first and seventh, making up for them in-between at the third and sixth. Five pars followed before he started the up and down mode again. There were dropped shots at 13 and 16, birdies at 15 and that last hole. He is 4-for-6 with 54-hole leads and 4-for-5 when they are of the solo kind. "It was a little like Russian Roulette," he said afterwards. "I hit many good shots and the ball ran out to funny places because of the pin positions. But they didn't move for me! Everyone else played them."

World No. 10 Sergio Garcia sleepwalked to a even-par 38-34=72 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open and at 2-over 146, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 80 pros from a field of 156 pros made the 36-hole cut of 1-over 145 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Garcia, the top-ranked OWGRer and pre-tourney fave outright (14/1), opened with an indifferent one-birdie, three-bogey 74 and cancelled three birdies with three bogeys on Day 2. His four total birdies ranked a dismal 121st and was 97th in SG: Putting (-0.797) and 98th in SG: Approach (-0.529). This was the transplanted Texan's 44th MC on TOUR in 329 events and misses consecutive cuts (Masters) for the first time since the 2004 Open and PGA Championships. Other notable early exits include: 146- Pat Perez; Luke List .. 147- Ryan Palmer; Kevin Na; Scott Piercy .. 148- J.B. Holmes; Adam Scott; Shubhankar Sharma .. 152 Jhonattan Vegas.
Apr 20 - 8:50 PM

Luke List arrived at the Valero Texas Open with some of the best form in the field but leaves with a sour taste in his mouth after rounds of 72-74=146 (+2) which places him one stroke outside of the cut line after 36 holes.

List was among the most popular plays in all fantasy formats this week. A large part of that was due to his torrid form entering the event. He had rattled off top 30s in eight straight stroke-play events. List had positioned himself T37 or better after 30 of his last 32 rounds before this week, avoiding any kind of cut sweats for the most part. That wasn't the case this week at TPC San Antonio. A small part of it was due to his tee-time draw, getting the short end of the stick by starting on Thursday morning. Looking at the top of the leaderboard, only three of the top 12 on the leaderboard came from his half of the draw. List walked off the property losing 5.454 strokes approaching-the-green and he lost another 2.194 strokes with the putter. He is not in the field for next week's team event.

Making his professional debut, sponsor invite and World No. 1543 Joaquin Niemann navigated a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open for a 36-hole tally of 2-under 142, up 10 places to T25 with play winding down.

The former No. 1-ranked amateur in the world chased an opening even-par 72 (three birdies, one bogey, one double bogey-6) with five circles against three squares on Day 2. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.183 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.676 around-the-green. Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 19-year-old squared bogeys at 13, 1 and 7 (failed scrambles), offset by birdies at 11, 14, 15, 8 and 9. His split included three conversions from between 19 and 44 feet, adding a 14-footer from the fringe at nine for a walk-off 3. The newly signed PING staffer recorded 1.636 putts per GIR and 1.152 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.
