Louis Oosthuizen withdrew from the Alfred Dunhill Championship prior to his final round due to an eye infection.

Golf writer, Michael Vlismas of South Africa, was the first to tweet the details. Oosthuizen was scheduled to go off at 9:37 a.m. local time at Leopard Creek Country Club in Malelane, South Africa. He completed 54 holes in 4-under-par 73-67-72=212 to sit T32, 17 strokes adrift of runaway leader, Charl Schwartzel. Oosthuizen's next start is currently TBD. UPDATE: Other reliable reports cited that Oosthuizen withdrew due to a sinus infection. However, his management firm, ISM, confirmed on Twitter that its client was, indeed, suffering from an eye infection.

Sergio Garcia forced his way into a one shot 54-hole lead of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters with a third round of 3-under-par 34-34=68 to total 8-under 205.

The Spanish host of the tournament said ahead of this week that Real Club Valderrama is his favorite course and he is proving as much as he seeks a second victory among its tight, tree-lined fairways. It was far from plain-sailing on Saturday, but it rarely is on the testing track. Crucially, however, he made more red than blue on moving day. He opened with a brace of birdies at 2 and 3 before giving them back with a bogey-double at 5 and 6. Three ticks at 8, 11 and 14 were unanswered until he dropped a shot at No. 15, but he cleaned that up with a birdie-4 at the 17th. He leads Daniel Brooks (who shot 64) by one and Joost Luiten by two. His main concern for the final day might be that he has gone sub-70 just twice in 12 previous Sunday laps at the course, although when he has they have been fine efforts (64 in 2000 and 67 last year). It is his eighth solo 54-hole lead on the European Tour and he is currently 6-for-7.

World No. 125 Scott Brown navigated a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in the third round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to reach 9-under 207, up one spot to T1, sharing the 54-hole lead with Justin Thomas.

It's been 138 starts since Brown's lone TOUR title at the 2013 Puerto Rico Open (as 54-hole co-leader). Overall, this is his fourth 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 164th career event, first since an unscheduled Monday finish at the 2016 Farmers, where he co-led and closed with a still-career-worst 15-over 87 for T49. After kicking off in 66-70, the 34-year-old began T2, one shy of 36-hole leader Luke List. Playing out of the final threesome, he landed 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, recording 1.857 putts per GIR. The Univ. of South Carolina-Aiken product outpaced two bogey-5s at 10 and 11 with three circles at holes 5, 15 and 18. Thus far, he's 1-for-3 converting when 54-hole leader/co-leader.

First-round leader and World No. 4 Justin Thomas tossed up a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the third round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to post 9-under 207, up three places to T1, sharing the 54-hole lead with Scott Brown.

After an opening 9-under 63, the reigning FedExCup champ finds himself back at that total after 74-70. Similar to R2, Day 3 saw challenging scoring conditions with the average score clocking in at a week-worst 74.795. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, the 24-year-old took care of the par 5s, circling four birdie-4s, adding birdie-3 at 11. His blemishes were bogey-5 at 10 and double bogey-6 at No. 8, his first double or worse on the week. The Alabama product, big dog this week in OWGR and pre-tourney odds outright (15/2), landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.667 putts per GIR. This is his seventh 54-hole lead/co-lead in 96 career events (92 pro), previously 4-for-6 converting, most recently at the Dell Tech four starts ago. Four of Thomas' six career TOUR titles have been as 54-hole leader/co-leader.

Jon Rahm could only add a 4-over-par 40-35=75 to his opening 74 and, at 7-over 149, missed the cut in the Andalucia Valderrama Masters by three shots.

Rahm's fate was all but secured after the outward 40 today which included bogeys at 13, 16, 17 and 18 and he couldn't repair the damage coming home to the disappointment of his home Spanish fans. Not what the sponsors wanted and the World No. 5, like many before him, ends his Valderrama debut 1-down to the former Ryder Cup venue. Others to miss the cut included: 148- Robert Karlsson ... 150- Stephen Gallacher, Gregory Bourdy, Marcel Siem ... 151 Mikko Ilonen ... 154- Alvaro Quiros ... 159- Gregory Havret.

Sergio Garcia had to settle for an even-par 34-37=71 in his second round at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters but he'll go into the final 36 holes just one off leader Joost Luiten after posting 5-under 137 at the halfway mark.

The tournament host has had much better days on what he calls his favorite track in the world but his opening 67 gave him breathing space and conditions were harder for him in the afternoon session today. He took his score to 6-under at the turn following birdies at 4 and 9 against a bogey at 8 for the second day running but then hit a sticky patch with five pars along with dropped shots at 12 and 16, the latter after a three-putt. Two big blows to the par-5 17th set up a bounceback birdie and Garcia escaped from sand at the last to stay in the thick of contention. Given his course record of 10 top 10s, he's the man to beat going into the final 36 holes although he revealed later that he'd aggravated a wrist injury and needs to manage it with anti-inflammatories.

Joost Luiten holed his second shot at the par-5 11th hole for the rarest of birds, that albatross helping him to a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in round two of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters and the new clubhouse lead of 6-under 136.

It was quite a ride for the Dutchman at Valderrama today as he dropped shots on the other two longs holes, meaning his scores on the par 5s at 4, 11 and 17 were the unlikely combination of 6-2-6. After an even-par first nine, the joint overnight leader bogeyed 10 but then played the next two holes in 4-under after draining his four-iron from 227 yards and following it with birdie-2 at the next. It briefly gave him a three-shot lead but he fell back from 8-under to 6-under after Valderrama bit back and he bogeyed 15 and 17 before parring the last.

Luke List styled a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of The CJ CUP at Nine Bridges, climbing to 9-under 135 on the week, good for a one-shot lead at the midpoint.

List split eight (of 14) fairways and landed 15 greens in regulation on day one. Today, he posted similar numbers, except one fewer GIR. Still, the results were much different at he traded six birdies with a pair of bogeys in R1 but kept a clean card en route to five birdies today. The big hitter always packs a scoring punch when there are four par 5s on a course, currently 5-under on the par 5s for the week. This will go in the books as his second career 54-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR, previously finishing T14 at the 2016 RBC Canadian Open after leading at the midpoint. The 32-year-old has five career top 10s in 95 starts but he's still searching for his maiden win.

Joost Luiten jumped out of the pack with five birdies in his final seven holes to post a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in round one of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain and share the early clubhouse lead with tournament host Sergio Garcia. UPDATE With afternoon scoring tough, Luiten and Garcia ended the day still tied for T1.

While Garcia's record at the par 71 is unsurpassed, Luiten also has some notable history at Valderrama having finished fifth (2010) and solo second (2016) in last year's Open de Espana held there. Today's lap of the former Ryder Cup venue was his best by three shots although for 11 holes there was no hint of him breaking his previous mark. The Dutchman picked up an early shot at 12 having started at 10 but it was pars the rest of the way until he bogeyed No. 2. But from even par after 11 holes, Luiten took flight with red circles at 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 to shoot 66, a score matched shortly after by local hero Garcia. That's one in front of England's Robert Rock and Pablo Larrazabal.

Tournament host Sergio Garcia birdied all four par 3s in a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in round one of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, good enough for a piece of the clubhouse lead with Joost Luiten after the morning session. UPDATE Garcia ended the day T1, a shot clear of Robert Rock and Pablo Larrazabal.

Garcia set the tone with an opening circle and then put his first pair of 2s on the card with gains at 12 and 15. Another birdie at 18 secured the local hero an outward 32 before he swallowed his first bogey of the day at the par 71's opening hole. The Spaniard responded by ticking the par-3 3rd and par-5 4th and completed his set of deuces at the 149-yard 6th. That took him to six-under but a dropped shot at 17 put him back into a tie with Luiten, who had posted his 66 in the previous group. The pair have a one-shot lead over Robert Rock. Garcia, who hit 14 of 18 greens today, is the ultimate course horse this week after posting 10 top 10s in his previous 11 appearances at Valderrama.

FedExCup Champion and 2017 Player of the Year Justin Thomas tore through The Club at Nine Bridges to the tune of a 9-under-par 34-29=63 during round one of the inaugural CJ CUP, racing out to an early three-shot lead over the field.

Thomas opened his week on the back nine and swallowed a bogey on the par-4 10th. He turned on the scoring machine from there as he rattled off two eagles and four birdies in a seven-hole stretch, starting with an eagle at the par-5 12th. That included a hole-out birdie from the greenside bunker at the 13th and another hole out for birdie at the 16th (chip from just off the green). He then belted a drive at the 18th to give himself a wedge into the par-5 18th island green. Thomas cruised home from there with a comfortable 2-under 34 on his way into the clubhouse. After the round, Thomas said he is playing on Empty right now and is looking forward to the time off after this week. The youngster may be ready to hang it up for the year, but he's certainly not mailing anything in this week, looking to earn another game ball for his father's trophy wall.

Sergio Garcia has plenty on his plate at this week's Andalucia Valderrama Masters but incredible course form at his home venue suggests a title challenge is likely.

In 11 appearances at the course, the Spaniard has 10 top 10s, including a victory in 2011. No wonder he describes it in glowing terms. "This is my favorite golf course ever and it’s the kind of golf course that even though it’s not long, it challenges you," he told europeantour.com. "It’s tight and it’s always asking you to hit good shots, all kinds of shots. They are small greens so your iron play has to be spot on and if you miss the greens it’s tricky. It’s just a great, solid golf course." The tournament is hosted by the Sergio Garcia Foundation and, as well as his off-course activities, he's also trying to close the gap on Tommy Fleetwood. The margin is substantial but second-placed Sergio has the chance to narrow it with Fleetwood sitting this one out. The Masters champion was only T30 in Italy but Valderrama is far more suited to his talents.
