After waiting around for hours on Saturday, the third round of the Farmers Insurance Open was never able to make it past the opening hole and will resume Sunday at 7:00 a.m. PT.

Robert Garrigus was one of three players to record a score on a hole Saturday, carding a par on the par-4 10th alongside Hunter Mahan and John Mallinger who also wrote down 4s. PGA TOUR officials tried their best to get more action off and running, but the marine layer that cast a shadow over Torrey Pines with few exceptions would have none of it. With all but three golfers still needing to put 36 holes in the books, all signs point to a Monday conclusion. There will be not be a re-pairing and thus no 54-hole cut. All 87 golfers will sprint to the finish.

Andrew Dodt stood firm when challenged in the third round to card 2-under-par 34-36=70 and take a two shot lead into the final day of the Australian PGA Championship on 14-under 202 at RAVC Royal Pines Resort.

The Australian dialled his approach at the par-four 1st to 6'0" and drained the putt to waste little time in extending his advantage over the chasing pack to three, but a bogey at No. 7, and birdies for others, drew the gap down to just one. No matter, Dodt replied with back-to-back birdies at 8 and 9 (the third time he has done so this week). The back nine witnessed two more red numbers at 12 and 16, but dropped shots at 11 and 18 as he chases a third European Tour title. He leads by two from Ashley Hall and Harold Varner III, with Adam Scott and John Senden four adrift. "My wins have been from behind so this position is new to me," he said. "I’m really trying to embrace it and enjoy my time out there on the course. The first three rounds are irrelevant now. There are a lot of solid players, world class players behind me, so I’ve got to keep the foot down tomorrow and keep playing the way I’m playing."

Hideki Matsuyama fired a 5-under-par 34-33=67 during the second round of the Hero World Challenge, posting a halftime score of 12-under 132 to grab a share of the 36-hole lead with Dustin Johnson.

Matsuyama arrived with a co-last-place finish on his Albany record, but he also entered with the best form in the entire field, winning three of his last four individual starts worldwide. The 24-year-old has maintained that stellar form through two days of play in the Bahamas, trading 13 birdies and an eagle with just one bogey and one double bogey. Both of the blemishes have come on par 3s but he's played the par 5s at 9-under to make up the difference. Going from last-to-first in one year at this course would be quite the feat, but there are still 36 holes to play and with five par 5s on the layout, he can't afford to take his foot off the gas now.

Tiger Woods looked to be in full form today, styling a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 during round two of the Hero World Challenge, raising seven spots up to T10 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

Woods looked good in his opening round, but a double-par-double finish ruined the sparkle of the round. That placed him in 17th place (of 18) after day one. With Justin Rose withdrawing before the round, Woods went out solo today and completed his round in just under three hours. He found 15 greens in regulation, but he really kept the momentum rolling with key par-savers throughout the round, making good use of the Scotty Cameron that is back in his bag. At 898th in the Official World Golf Rankings, the 40-year-old will be skyrocketing up the rankings if this round is any indication of the Woods we will see in 2017. This blemish-free navigation of Albany will have his stock symbol pointing upwards regardless of how he finishes out the week.

With an eagle-3 at Leopard Creek's 18th hole, local man Brandon Stone completed a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in round two of the Alfred Dunhill Championship and jumped into a one-shot lead after 36 holes.

That big finish saw Stone land at 11-under 133 and took the young South African one in front of defending champion Charl Schwartzel and England's Chris Hanson. It's a further stroke back to compatriots George Coetzee and Keith Horne so home players occupy four of the top five slots. Stone kicked off his afternoon lap with a pair of opening birdies and wiped out a bogey at 4 with a circle at 6. He made further gains at 10 and 12 and didn't let a bogey-6 at 13 disrupt his concentration. Instead, Stone birdied 15 and then produced his grandstand finish at 18. One concern going into the weekend is a back problem. "I woke up this morning and the back was feeling a little bit sore. During the course of the day it progressively got worse and then I had to hit one out of the deep jungle on the right of number eight and really tweaked it. I got some really good physio with my trainer on the ninth. I got the back sorted for a few holes there and it held its nerve for the back nine."

Scheduled to go off at 11:12 a.m. ET with Tiger Woods, Justin Rose has instead backed out of this week's Hero World Challenge due to a back injury.

Rose posted a 2-over-par 36-38=74 during the opening round to find himself in last place of the 18-man field. He was 10 stokes off the early pace set by J.B. Holmes. The Englishman was returning from an eight-week absence, a planned leave to rest and recover from this very issue. There is no word on the severity of the injury, but this does put in question his availability for next week's UBS Hong Kong Open where he is set to play the role of defending champion.

Andrew Dodt fired a superb 5-under-par 33-34=67 to take a two shot advantage into the weekend at the Australian PGA Championship; his 12-under 132 total leads Ashley Hall with Ryan Fox and Adam Scott four back after 36 holes.

Dodt, a New South Wales native who is making his debut on the Royal Pines layout, was a winner of the 2014 Queensland Open so may have fond memories of the region. He ticked red three times on both nines: at 3, 8 and 9 going out, then 14, 15 and 17 on returning to the clubhouse. His only error came at the final hole, where he made a bogey-5. "The first nine holes were really solid," he said, "and then the back nine was as good as it gets, really. I hit a lot of fairways, a lot of greens and holed some putts. I'll take it one shot at a time, one hole at a time. I'm really happy with where I'm at mentally, I've just got to keep doing what I'm doing." Earlier this year he led the Mauritius Open by three at halfway, only to card a disastrous 77-76 over the closing 36 holes, falling back to T5 in the process. He'll be hoping to use that experience positively rather than let it loom over his shoulder.

J.B. Holmes set the pace with an 8-under-par 33-31=64 during the first round of the Hero World Challenge, ending the day with a one-shot cushion over the field.

Holmes finished T8 last year in his debut at Albany in The Bahamas, but an opening bogey at the par-4 first may have had gamers worried today. He bounced back with four birdies before making the turn, three of them coming on par 5s. The big-hitting Holmes took advantage of the quintet of par 5s that Albany has to offer, circling an eagle at the 11th and settling for a par at the 15th, playing the par 5s at 5-under on the day. Last year he played them at 9-under for the entire week. While the return of Tiger Woods (1-over 73) garnered the attention of most watching the action today, Holmes is the golfer rewarding DFS owners early on in the week. Nipping on his heels after day one is Hideki Matsuyama (-7) and Dustin Johnson (-6).

Paul Dunne had a double bogey on his card but still managed to splash enough red to shoot a 6-under-par 33-33=66 and move into a tie for the first-round lead at the Alfred Dunhill Championship alongside four-time winner Charl Schwartzel.

Dunne is best known for being the 54-hole leader at the 2015 Open Championship when still an amateur but he enjoyed a steady rookie season on the European Tour in 2016, finishing 106th to keep his card. His best result in that campaign was solo ninth at the Joburg Open and he again showed his liking for South African conditions with a flood of birdies. Dunne set the tone with an opening par breaker and made further gains at 4, 7 and 8 before suffering his only black spot of the day with a double bogey-6 at 9. He quickly shook that off and added birdies at 11, 13, 15 and 17 to share the lead with Schwartzel, the pair a shot clear of Brandon Stone, Max Orrin, Scott Jamieson, Jean Hugo, Pablo Larrazabal and Alexander Bjork.

Four-time winner Charl Schwartzel continued his love affair with the Alfred Dunhill Championship by posting a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in Thursday's opening round, good enough for a share of the clubhouse lead with Ireland's Paul Dunne.

Here we go again. The South African has dominated his home event, winning three of the last four editions to add to his first victory in 2004 and also finishing runner-up on four occasions. Today's 66 makes him 128-under in this his 12th start in the tournament, a staggering 83 shots better than anyone else. It was a slow burn to begin with for Schwartzel as he managed just a single birdie at 5 along with eight pars on the front nine. But on the back he caught fire with circles at 10, 11, 13, 15 and 18 to hit the front again. At 6-under, Schwartzel and Dunne enjoy a one-shot lead over a five-man bunch which includes South African Open champ Brandon Stone.

On the first very day of the new 2017 European Tour season, Jarrod Lyle registered an ace after sinking his tee shot on the fifth hole in round one of the Australian PGA Championship.

The Aussie's 7-iron from 179 yards landed just short of the green but took two more hops and rolled into the hole. That helped him finish the day at 3-under although afternoon storms at RACV Royal Pines Resort means he has five holes of his opener to finish off on Friday morning. Lyle added to his hole-in-one with birdies at 1, 8 and 12 although he squared bogeys at 2 and 10. Right now, he's T11 on the leaderboard and four shots behind clubhouse leader Andrew Dodt.
Dec 1 - 5:23 AM

Andrew Dodt thrashed RACV Royal Pines Resort for a 7-under-par 34-31=65 before the threat of lightning saw play suspended on day one of the European Tour's season-opening Australian PGA Championship.

The local man cashed in the calmer morning conditions to post a lap featuring eight birdies against a lone bogey. That was enough for a two-shot clubhouse lead over New Zealand's Ryan Fox and American Julian Suri. Another U.S. player, Harold Varner, is also at 5-under although he still has four holes to complete. Dodt, who made just seven of 20 cuts last season, got his birdie count going at 12 and 13 before dropping a shot at the next. He got it back with another circle at 13 and then splashed further red at 1, 3, 5 (45-foot putt), 8 and 9. "I wanted to hit the ground running for the 2017 season, hole one, shot one and I managed to do that today," said the two-time European Tour winner. "I hit it really well, putted really well. It was just a really solid run." Round one is set to restart at 05.30 local time Friday, with the morning groups teeing off in round two between 07.00 and 09.00 and the second wave going out between 11.45 and 13.45.
