Richard Sterne closed out a magical week at Royal Johannesburg & Kensington Golf Club's East Course with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to record a seven-stroke victory over Charl Schwartzel at the Joburg Open.

Veteran gamers may remember the diminutive South African when he sat inside the top 50 in the world ranking a few years ago. A back injury prevented him from competing full-time for two years, thus bumping him from our consciousness. He officially elbowed his way back into our focus today. Sterne suffered just one bogey all week, surrounding it with an eagle and 26 birdies to post a tournament-record 27-under 63-65-68-64=260. He opened on the par-71 East Course and would share the lead after each of the first three rounds before distancing himself from Trevor Fisher, Jr., who carded a 73 today to finish T6. This is Sterne's sixth career title on the European Tour (including his second at this event), but it's his first since he won twice in 2009. "After all the hard work and the time out with injury, I did think whether I was ever going to win again," he said. "At one point the pain was so bad that I even wondered if I'd ever play golf again. But now I know I can."

S.J. Park tacked on a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 199, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with Jason Bohn, Sean O'Hair and Bryce Molder.

Park, a rookie on the PGA TOUR, began the festivities at 7-under (T10) and two shots adrift. The 29-year-old is making some splash in his Greenbrier debut, not only tied for the lead, but played his second consecutive round without a blemish on the card. In fact, it's been 49 holes since he last squared bogey at the sixth hole in the first round. Further, it's his only bogey of the week, currently first in that stat for the tournament. Park split 12 (of 14) fairways on Saturday, and landed 15 greens in regulation, circling par breakers on Nos. 2, 8, 10 and 16. His 15'2" roll on the par-4 10th was his longest conversion on the day. His highlight of the round however, came at the par-3 eighth, flying his tee ball 199 yards to 11 inches for the gimme birdie. Park is 10-for-20 on his 2014-15 campaign with a season-best T2 at the Humana Challenge, his only top-25 finish of the season.

Sean O'Hair carved out a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to join Jason Bohn and S.J. Park as 54-hole clubhouse leaders at 11-under 199.

O'Hair began Moving Day in a six-way tie for 10th at 7-under, four shots off the pace of the 54-hole leaders. He exchanged two birdies with two bogeys to turn even. The 32-year-old, who finished T7 in the 2012 Greenbrier, lit up his inward half, circling par breakers on Nos. 11, 12, 14 and 16. For his efforts, O'Hair split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation and at last check, was a cumulative 8.778 in strokes gained: total, currently T2 in that stat for the tournament. His six-birdie set featured four conversions in excess of 10 feet, highlighted by a 40-foot bomb for the birdie-2 at the third. O'Hair, who missed his last three cuts entering the week, recorded a season-best P2 at the Valspar Championship back in March.

Jason Bohn went out early and threw up a 9-under-par 29-32=61 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 199, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Bohn was in the fifth group out on Moving Day at 8:46 a.m. ET, a full five hours and twenty minutes before the overnight co-leaders were scheduled to tee off. The 42-year-old began his final frame at 2-under (T62), having made the cut on the number, and was seven shots off the pace. After circling five birdies through his first 36 holes, Bohn doubled-up on that total on Saturday with 10 birdies against one bogey (at the par-4 11th). For his efforts, he peppered 13 (of 14 fairways), hit 14 greens in regulation and registered 6.041 strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. His par breakers included five conversions from outside 11 feet, including a 19'3" birdie roll at the par-4 second for his longest of the day. Bohn's 61 is the low round of the tournament thus far besting Scott Langley's 62 in round one. It's also a career low for the veteran of 942 PGA TOUR rounds.

Jaco Van Zyl blitzed Le Golf National for a 7-under-par 33-31=64 on Saturday to move into a two-shot lead after three rounds of the Open de France.

That's the lowest lap of the week so far and puts the South African in prime position to secure his first European Tour win. At 10-under 203 he's two strokes clear of Germany's Maximilian Kieffer, with Austrian Bernd Wiesberger a further shot back in third. Two-time major champion Martin Kaymer, local hero Victor Dubuisson and England's in-form James Morrison are four shots back at 6-under. Van Zyl made his move with birdies at 3 and 5 and accelerated around the turn with further par breakers at 9, 10 and 11. Yesterday he played the final three holes in 3-over but the 36-year-old negotiated them in five shots better today after closing birdie-par-birdie. Van Zyl was superb from tee-to-green in round three, splitting 13 (of 14) fairways and hitting all 18 greens.

Webb Simpson will get an early start on his preparation for The Open Championship after missing the cut at The Greenbrier Classic.

After missing the cut in the inaugural Greenbrier in 2010, Simpson connected four paydays, three of which for a top 10. That string ended today with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his second round. At 3-over 143, he fell five shots outside the bubble to play on. He'll take next week off. Other notables who failed to survive today's cut include: 139--2013 champ Jonas Blixt; Daniel Berger; Marc Leishman; Steve Stricker ... 140--Bill Haas; Nick Watney; Charles Howell III; Colt Knost; Nick Taylor ... 141--Cameron Tringale; Rory Sabbatini; Scott Pinckney ... 145--Fabian Gomez ... 148--Daniel Summerhays.

Overnight leader Scott Langley hung on for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 131 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Jhonattan Vegas.

The lefty went 2-for-3 in scrambling with a bogey but added a three-putt bogey from outside 54 feet at the par-3 15th hole. Elsewhere, he picked off three birdies, including runs of 30'3" at the par-5 17th and 24 feet at the par-4 sixth. He missed only two looks inside 11 feet, but those are magnified given the competition. Consider that there are 15 golfers inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and within two swings of the lead. Langley ranks T2 with 32 greens in regulation and T5 in birdies, but he knows that he'll have to keep the pedal floored if he's going to collect his first hardware on the PGA TOUR.

Kevin Stadler is included in the published field of next week's John Deere Classic.

If he plays, it'll be his first start since missing the cut at the Masters, which was his first action since withdrawing during the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. It was later revealed that Stadler was suffering from a broken bone in his left hand. He's fully exempt through next season by virtue of his win at the 2014 Waste Management Phoenix Open, so unless he goes on a tear this summer, he's going to be an automatic buy for salary gamers in 2015-16.

Jhonattan Vegas ripped off a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 131 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Vegas' aggregate held. He'll go in the books as a co-leader with Scott Langley.

After landing 15 greens in regulation in the opening round, Vegas found all 18 today. He converted five times for birdie, the longest stretching 14'2" at the par-5 17th hole. His 33 GIR led the field when he signed his card sitting one stroke lower than the previous clubhouse quad-leaders. It's quite a feat of precision given he's split only half of his 28 fairways, but having some strength on a course with soft greens due to rain never hurts.
Jul 3 - 5:22 PM

Victor Dubuisson tacked on a 1-under-par 35-35=70 to his opening 68 and shares the lead at the halfway mark of the Alstom Open de France.

The Frenchman shares top spot on 4-under 138 with Germany's Martin Kaymer and Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello and that trio will battle it out in a three-ball on Saturday with organizers hoping to quicken up play due to the threat of thunderstorms. Dubuisson hit 6-under after making an eagle-2 at 6 when holing his approach from 107 yards but gave those shots back with successive bogeys at 8 and 9. He took outright possession of the lead again with a birdie at 12 but dropped another shot at 17. After a difficult season, this is the perfect time and place for the Ryder Cup star to come back to life and he puts the return to form down to simply playing more golf. The 25-year-old took part in just five tournaments between January and April but this is his third event in a row and seventh since the start of May. Dubuisson hit only half the greens in regulation on Friday but is 12-for-16 in scrambling so far and his famed short game magic could make the difference this weekend.
Jul 3 - 12:55 PM

With an up-and-down for par at his 19th hole of the day, Rafa Cabrera-Bello assumed the lead on day two of the Open de France.

After returning to the course this morning to complete a bogey-free 68 which put him in a four-way tie for the lead, the Spaniard advanced his score to 4-under 138 after following it up with a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in round two. That put him a shot clear of Tyrrell Hatton, Jaco Van Zyl, James Morrison, Daniel Brooks and Francesco Molinari. RCB now has an immediate shot at converting another halfway lead after he failed to do so (finished T11) when two clear after 36 holes of last week's BMW International Open. Today he suffered his first bogeys so far, dropping shots at 11, 5 and 7 but birdies at 14, 17, 6 and 8 allowed him to break par for the second day running at the testing Le Golf National which will host the 2018 Ryder Cup. So far, Cabrera-Bello has split just 13 of 28 fairways but he's kept his score intact by going 8-for-10 in scrambling.
Jul 3 - 8:09 AM

Rafa Cabrera-Bello was part of a four-way tie for the lead when the first round of the Alstom Open de France was completed on Friday morning.

The Spaniard was one of 42 players who had to return to Le Golf National to finish off after storms had disrupted play on Thursday and he safely made par at 18 to card a 3-under-par 34-34=68 and join Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and South African Jaco Van Zyl at the top of the pile. Cabrera-Bello, who also had a share of the first-round lead at last week's BMW International in Germany, was bogey free on his opening lap after going 5-for-5 in scrambling. He picked up his birdies at 3, 4 and 15. Maximilian Kieffer was the leader at 4-under when storms halted play on Thursday evening but on his return this morning he dropped three shots in his final two holes to slip back to 1-under. Round two started as scheduled at 07:30 local time.
