Russell Henley is making it look easy at Waialae Country Club in his rookie debut, backing up his opening 63 with another in today's second round to set the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 14-under 126.

The rookie hit all 18 greens in regulation today and circled seven birdies, the longest of which from 16'9" at the fifth hole. For the tournament, he's split only 14 of 28 fairways but has landed 33 GIR. The sharpshooting has led to 15 birdies, but only two of those were on the pair of par 5s, and both of those occurred today. You couldn't draw up a better start to a career on the PGA TOUR, but Henley will likely see tighter pins on the weekend, not to mention feel some of the heat going out late on Saturday.

First round co-leader Ryo Ishikawa responded with a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

As was the case with Saturday's third round, the threat of inclement weather remains for Sunday. As such, players will go off split tees beginning at 7:00 a.m. CT, including the 23-year-old Ishikawa, who goes to bed on a three-day aggregate of 3-under 207. The final group consisting of the 54-hole leader Kevin Na (11-under), Ian Poulter (10-under) and Charley Hoffman (9-under) is scheduled to go off on No. 1 at 9:00 a.m.

Overnight leader Kevin Na conjured up a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 11-under 199 is good for a one-stroke lead over Ian Poulter.

Na, who began the day with a two-shot lead, split nine (of 14) fairways and hit just nine greens in regulation, finishing with 25 putts. The 31-year-old scrambled successfully 7-of-9 times (including five of six on his inward half) adding a second square on the card at the par-4 15th. Today's round wasn't necessarily about the three birdies that Na managed (ranging from 6'11" to 16'11" on No. 3). It was more about his par putts (two in excess of six feet) and most importantly his 6'9" bogey "save" that disappeared on the par-4 fifth, minimizing the damage of a penalty stroke off the tee to just one dropped shot.

Fort Worth native John Peterson backed up to a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and at 3-over 213 will not be teeing it up on Sunday.

Peterson, who grew up on Colonial Country Club, was one of 15 golfers at T66 after two rounds had been completed, so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. Joining Peterson on the pine for Sunday: 212--Jarrod Lyle; Harrison Frazar; Steve Wheatcroft; Chad Collins; Patrick Rodgers ... 213--John Peterson ... 216--Kyle Reifers.

Byeong-Hun An tacked on a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to Friday's 64 and is tied for the lead going into the final round of the BMW PGA Championship.

An made seven birdies in all and ended with a pair of par breakers to pull alongside Francesco Molinari at 14-under 202. The duo will head off on their final lap two shots clear of Thongchai Jaidee. An hit 15 greens in regulation (47 out of 54 this week) and split 9 (of 14) fairways. He was 2-for-3 in scrambling and took 27 putts. The young South Korean has posted an impressive six top 15s in his rookie season on the European Tour but hasn't entered a final round higher than T7 or nearer than five shots off the lead. In other words, this is his first legitimate shot at victory.

Halfway leader Francesco Molinari threw in a 4-under-par 32-36=68 but now shares top spot with Byeong-Hun An going into the final round of the BMW PGA Championship.

For most of the day, the Italian's robotic tee-to-green play looked set to give him a clear advantage but he started missing fairways late in the round and finished with a bogey and four pars to end up at 14-under with An. The pair are two clear of Thongchai Jaidee. Molinari made birdies at 3, 7, 8, 12 and 13 to peak at 15-under but struggled coming in and couldn't cash in at Wentworth's pair of closing par 5s. He split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation, was 3-for-4 in scrambling and took 29 putts.

Boosted by a hole-in-one at the second, Miguel Angel Jiménez carded a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to move into solo fifth at the BMW PGA Championship.

This is becoming routine for the veteran Spaniard. Last week he matched Colin Montgomerie's record of nine by draining his tee shot at the 8th hole in round two of the Open de España. And now he has the European Tour's all-time mark for himself after a 10th ace, three of those coming this season. Jiménez followed his hole-in-one at the 154-yard second with a birdie at three and circled three more par breakers against two bogeys over the rest of his round. At 11-under 206, he's currently four shots behind leader Francesco Molinari.

Tommy Fleetwood holed his second shot at the par-5 4th hole in the third round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Saturday.

That dramatic three-shot leap combined with an eagle-3 at the 12th helped the Englishman card a 7-under 31-34=65 and climb up to third place on 11-under 205. "It was 198 yards, 7 iron," Fleetwood told Sky Sports TV. "It was a perfect shot, exactly where I went to hit it." It goes down as the 92nd albatross on the European Tour and is the third in this event (you can watch it here). He hit 12 (of 14) fairways, found 15 greens in regulation and played the par 5s in 6-under.

Try as he might but David Hearn survived the cut on the number at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hearn impressed with a 66 in the opener but blew up for a birdie-free, 5-over-par 35-40=75 in today's second round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and went an astonishing 0-for-14 in scoring chances on Friday. Still sitting pretty despite one bogey on his first 17 holes, the Canadian rinsed his approach at the par-4 18th. He'd roll another back into the water when a chip failed to clear the bank facing the green. Eventually, Hearn coaxed in a 50-inch putt for quadruple bogey to post 1-over 141. As one of 15 tied for 66th place, a second cut of low 70 and ties will occur at the conclusion of 54 holes. With the threat of inclement weather on Saturday, players will go off split tees beginning at 7:00 a.m. CT. The final group is scheduled to begin on No. 1 at 9:10 a.m.

Jonas Blixt turned in a pair of 4-over-par 74s at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, missing the cut by seven strokes.

Blixt found only 10 (of 28) fairways and 16 greens in regulation en route to his fifth consecutive MC. He erased four birdies with 10 bogeys and a double. At 138th in the FedExCup standings and fully exempt only through this season, the 31-year-old has some work to do to enjoy the same perks in 2015-16 that he has since breaking onto the PGA TOUR in 2012. He'll try again at next week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. Other notables that missed the cut at Colonial today include: 142--2006 champ Tim Herron; Sangmoon Bae; Daniel Berger; James Hahn; Sean O'Hair; Ryan Palmer ... 143--two-time champ Kenny Perry; John Senden ... 146--2011 champ David Toms ... 147--Jason Kokrak ... 148--two-time champ Corey Pavin ... 153--1987 champ Keith Clearwater.

Adam Scott snapped out of his funk with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The defending champ striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation at Colonial Country Club today. It's his lowest aggregate in 26 rounds this season. He connected for four birdies, including a round-long strike from 30'4" at the par-4 second hole. Scott parred the entire back nine before coming to rest at 2-under 138, eight strokes off Kevin Na's 36-hole lead. At last check, Scott's strokes gained: tee-to-green for the day measured 5.085, but he registered -0.531 in strokes gained: putting. But hey, every step forward counts. Given his recent form, we should both take nothing for granted on the weekend and embrace whatever he yields.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Na backed up his opening 64 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to post 10-under 130, good for outright possession of the 36-hole lead.

At the time he signed his card, he owned a two-stroke lead over Ian Poulter, who was in the opposite draw. The American split nine (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and lassoed five birdies, including a 10-yarder from just off the putting surface at the par-4 14th hole. His longest conventional conversions measured 25'5" and 22'4" at Nos. 10 and 13, respectively. Once again, however, Na bogeyed the par-4 18th. It's the site of his only two dropped shots this week. The 31-year-old will enter the weekend in pursuit of his second PGA TOUR victory. This is his 288th start.
