Bo Van Pelt crafted a 10-under-par 29-33=62 in his third round of the CIMB Classic, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with Robert Garrigus at 17-under 197.

This was vintage BVP, right up through the double bogey at the par-4 18th hole. He's best known to fantasy gamers as a rock-solid investment through 54 holes, but despite an impressive final-round scoring average (70.11), he's struggled converting on opportunities for success. In today's loop of The MINES Resort & Golf Club, he circled 11 birdies before stepping onto the tee at the last needing one more for a 59. He pulled his drive left of the fairway to create an awkward angle to attack a back-left pin from a primarly fade lie. Right on cue, he sailed his approach with a 9-iron into the greenside bunker right. Needing to hole out for the 59, he chunked his out, barely reaching the putting surface. Three putts later, he walked off the green as he's done too many times for our liking, and certainly his. He signed his card leading the field with 22 birdies. His consolation prize is that he matched the course record first established by Jeff Overton a year ago.

Thomas Pieters is the clear 9/1 market leader to win the European Tour's Made In Denmark for the second year running.

The Belgian star secured his third European Tour title in dramatic style at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort last year when a trio of closing birdies gave him a thrilling one-shot win over Bradley Dredge. His winning total and 72-hole tournament-best 17-under was achieved with a 62 in round one (matched course record) followed by rounds of 71-69-65. A couple of things to note: Pieters' three European Tour wins have all come in August or September so he loves this part of the year. Second, he's defended just one of the previous two titles and made an excellent job, returning to the Czech Masters and following up his 2015 win with a second place in 2016. He got it all wrong in the recent PGA Championship (79-77) but the youngster was solo fourth at the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational just a week earlier and that finish put him back in the world's top 30. Pieters is 16th for Putts Per GIR on the European Tour this season and the flatstick is a key weapon at Himmerland. Expect a big week.

Second-round co-leader and World No. 59 Webb Simpson pieced together a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to conclude on 18-under 262, down one place to solo 3rd, four adrift of 54-hole leader and champion Henrik Stenson, who shot 64.

The 32-year-old bags his seventh top 25 in nine appearances, fifth top 10 and third top 5, highlighted by his win in 2011. It's his ninth top 25 of the season in 24 starts, fourth top 10 and third top 5, and climbs 12 spots to 25th in the FEC standings. After kicking off in 63-64, the Wake Forest alum co-led with Ryan Armour, his ninth career 36-hole lead/co-lead in 232 career events, and drops to 1-for-9 converting. He tacked on a 68 in R3 to drop into a three-way T2, one back of Stenson. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he was sleepwalking on 1-over thru 12 holes, outpacing birdie-4 at No. 5 with bogey-5s at 4 and 10, but awoke to circle four of his final six, including a walk-off 3 from 7'2" to secure solo 3rd. Simpson hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 GIR, losing 0.385 strokes around-the-green and gaining 0.584 on-the-green.

Making his 39th career PGA TOUR start (36 pro), rookie and World No. 146 Ollie Schniederjans painted a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to post 21-under 259, good for a career-best solo 2nd, one shy of overnight leader and champion Henrik Stenson, who also shot 64. UPDATE: Schniederjans jumps 50 spots to a career-high 96th in OWGR.

The 24-year-old carded the only blemish-free lap in Round 4. This was his second appearance, first since a MC in 2015 on a sponsor exemption. It's the Georgia Tech alum's seventh top 25 of the season in 25 events, first since T18 at the Valero Texas Open, and fifth top 10, first since a previous-best T3 at the RBC Heritage back in April. After opening in 66-63-66, he began in a three-way T2, one back of Stenson. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the Dallas native hit eight (of 14) fairways and 15 GIR, posting 1.666 SG: Approach and 2.690 SG: TTG. He circled six at holes 5, 7, 9, 15, 17 and 18, three from between 11 and 41 feet, recording 1.600 putts per GIR and 1.932 SG: Putting. Schniederjans took advantage of a lucky break at the par-5 15th, his second caromed off the grandstands and back in play, carding an up-and-down birdie-4. He jumps 35 places to 39th in the FEC standings.

Overnight leader and World No. 9 Henrik Stenson, a pre-tourney co-fave at 14/1 outright, birdied four of his final six holes en route to a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 22-under 258, good for a one-shot win over Ollie Schniederjans and his sixth PGA TOUR title in his 170th career start. UPDATE: Stenson climbs three spots to 6th in OWGR.

The 41-year-old's 258 aggregate is a new tournament record, eclipsing 259 by Si Woo Kim (2016) and Carl Pettersson (2008). It's his first win since the 2016 Open 16 starts ago, also as 54-hole leader, and improves to 3-for-5 converting from the three-quarter pole. The win comes in the Swede's fourth Wyndham and is his first cash. It's his seventh top 25 of the season in 13 starts, fourth straight, and third top 10, besting a T2 at the WGC-HSBC last October. After kicking off in career-low 62, 66, 66, the Orlando resident began with a one-shot lead over three players, including Schniederjans. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 16 GIR, posting 1.872 SG: TTG. Stenson squared two bogey-5s at Nos. 2 (3-putt from 60'1") and 6, outflanked by eight circles at 1, 3, 5, 7, 12 and 15-17, four from between 16 and 43 feet, posting 1.688 putts per GIR and 2.750 SGP. He vaults 52 places to 23rd in the FEC standings.

World No. 454 Rory Sabbatini authored a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to wrap on 17-under 263, up seven places on the live leaderboard to T4 and tying Ryan Armour for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Sabbatini finished season-best T4, five shy of champion Henrik Stenson.

This was the Web.com Tour grad's 22nd start of the season, sixth top 25 and first top 10. It's his first top-10 finish since T10 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational in 2015, 51 starts ago. The 41-year-old was making his fourth visit to the Wyndham, first since T8 in 2013, which was his only other cash. After kicking off in 65-68-66, he began T11 on 11-under, five adrift of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson. The South African mustered seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.971 strokes around-the-green and 2.399 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 11, offset by five birdies at Nos. 3, 4, 8, 10 and 16, three from between 15 and 23 feet, adding eagle-3 at 5 from 42 inches and a 57-footer from the fringe at the par-3 16th. Sabbatini, who's projected to jump 26 places to 122nd in the FEC standings, posted 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.302 SG: Putting.

Second-round co-leader and World No. 543 Ryan Armour fired a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of the Wyndham Championship to post 17-under 263, up eight spots on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Armour finished a career-tying-best T4, five back of champion Henrik Stenson.

This was the 41-year-old's 103rd career start and fourth top 10, first since T6 at the 2007 Valero Texas Open in October of his rookie season. His career best is solo 4th at the Mayakoba Golf Classic earlier that year, so he's on the cusp of bettering that. The Ohio State alum was making his fourth start at the Wyndham and this was his first cash. After kicking off in 66 and career-low 61, he co-led with Webb Simpson, his first lead/co-lead on TOUR after any round. The Jupiter, Florida, resident backed up with 72 in R3 to begin T11 on 11-under, five back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he was bogey-free 7-under thru 17 holes, circling Nos. 4, 6-8, 11, 15 and 16, before walking off with bogey-5 (failed sand save). At a projected 152nd in the FEC standings his season is over and will head to the Web.com Tour Finals.

A superb finish earned Adrian Otaegui his first European Tour victory as he downed a nervous home favorite Marcel Siem 2-and-1 in the final of the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach in Germany.

Three appearances on the Beckenbauer Course in strokeplay had reaped nothing better than three missed cuts for the Spaniard, but it was an entirely different story in head-to-head – in fact he never played the 18th hole once all week. In the final his opponent raced from the blocks making winning birdies at 1, 4 and 8 to hit the turn 3-up. Otaegui won 10 with birdie and 11 with par, but Siem stiffed his approach to 13 to get back to 2-up. However the German then became progressively more twitchy and Otaegui moved up a gear. Siem missed tiddlers for halves at 14 and 16, Otaegui also made birdie at 15 for a win in between and then drained a 25’0" putt for another par breaker at 17 which Siem couldn’t replicate. "I was very focussed," he said afterwards. "I played well all week, very solid."

Unheralded Australian Jason Norris completed a life-changing week with a dominant four-shot victory in the Fiji International; he closed with a 5-under-par 31-36=67 for a 14-under 274 total at Natadola Bay GC.

The 44-year-old has been a pro for 21 years and whilst there have been victories on his home tour and the odd bright spot on the OneAsia circuit, this victory came right out of the blue for the World No. 1238. Given the background his final day performance was extraordinary. One shot behind Wade Ormsby at the start of play he caught and passed him with six front nine birdies at 1, 3, 4, 7, 8 and 9. There was a bogey in there at 5 and he’d add two more at 10 and 15, but a couple of back nine par breakers at 13 and 17 settled the nerves. His fellow 54-hole contenders couldn’t live with the pace. Jazz Janewattanond and David McKenzie flew home to join James Marchesani in a tie for second on 10-under. "I felt like a champion," said Norris. "I was in a good spot."

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 146 Ollie Schniederjans authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship for a three-day tally of 15-under 195, up two spots into a three-way T2, one adrift of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson.

The 24-year-old is chasing his first TOUR title in his 39th career event (36 pro) and will play out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.490 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.756 approaching-the-green and 0.076 tee-to-green. The Georgia Tech alum squared a pair of bogey-4s at Nos. 3 and 16 (failed scrambles), outpaced by six circles at 5, 8-10, 12, and 15, five from between 10 and 28 feet. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR and 3.323 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts.

World No. 80 Kevin Na styled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 15-under 195, up four spots into a three-way T2, one back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson whom he'll be paired with in the final twosome on Sunday.

After opening in 67-63, the 33-year-old began T6 on 10-under, three shy of 36-hole co-leaders Webb Simpson and Ryan Armour. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.229 SG: Off-the-Tee and -0.021 SG: Approach-the-Green. The Las Vegas resident squared a lone bogey-4 at No. 7, missed par-saver from 5'1", camouflaged by six circles at 5, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 17, two from between 12 and 44 feet. He registered 1.538 putts per GIR and 2.693 SG: Putting, needing 26 total putts. Na's lone TOUR title in 347 prior career events is the 2011 Shriners as 54-hole co-leader.

After kicking off in 63-64, the Wake Forest alum co-led with Ryan Armour. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.286 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.239 approaching-the-green.
