Overnight tri-leader and World No. 16 Paul Casey twirled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the TOUR Championship to reach the third-quarter pole on 12-under 198, good for a two-shot lead over Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele.

World No. 26 Kevin Kisner painted a 6-under-par 31-33=64 on Moving Day at the TOUR Championship to reach 10-under 200, up nine spots to solo 2nd, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and tying the week's low round with first-round leader Kyle Stanley. UPDATE: With play completed, Kisner is T2, two back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

This is the Georgia alum's third straight appearance with a best of 26th last year, which also included his previous-best lap of 67/R1. He entered the week 18th in the FedExCup standings and began the Playoffs with three finishes outside the top 50, lowlighted by a T67 last week. After kicking off in twin 68s, the 33-year-old began T11 on 4-under, three back of a trio of overnight co-leaders. He landed seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.936 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.227 around-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 4.065. The South Carolinian squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 4 (3-putt from 44'5"), smothered by seven circles at 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 13 and 14, five from inside of 10 feet, a long of 21 feet at 13, and a chip-in 3 at 14 from 38 yards away. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR and -0.262 SG: Putting, taking 25 total putts.

Lucas Bjerregaard holds a one-shot lead at the 54-hole stage of the Portugal Masters after a third round of 3-under-par 33-35=68 left him on 14-under 199 at the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

The Dane is chasing his first individual win on the European Tour (he claimed the Golf6s alongside Thorbjorn Olesen in May) and takes a narrow advantage over George Coetzee into the final round, with three golfers a swing back on 12-under. He earned the chance to break his maiden status despite two back nine bogeys at 11 and 14. Before than he had ticked 3 and 5 on the front nine, then added another at ten. The dropped shots set him back before he edged ahead of the field with par breakers at 15 and 17. He has twice before shared a 54-hole ET lead - in the 2015 Hong Kong Open and 2016 China Open. Both times he finished top three. He has never been out alone with 18 holes to play. "It's been a rough year," he admitted, "so to be in contention again feels really good." There is every chance of a strong start to his lcosing lap: he is 12-under for the oening 12 holes this week.

Webb Simpson soared the up the leaderboard early in round two of the TOUR Championship and then held on late to post a 3-under-par 31-36=67, good for a share of the 36-hole lead alongside Justin Thomas and Paul Casey, all entering the weekend on 7-under 133. UPDATE: This is Simpson's 10th 36-hole lead/co-lead, previously 1-for-9 converting (2014 Shriners).

Simpson was locked in from the start today, picking up four birdies in his first seven holes, including one at the difficult par-4 opening hole. We knew it was his day when an errant tee shot bounced off the top of an out-of-bounds fence and ricocheted back into prime position to attack the green. However, it all went downhill at the par-4 13th, as he blasted one into the trees off the tee and failed to get his (attempted) chip out back to the fairway. It resulted in a double bogey but also had lasting effects on his final five holes, missing the fairway on three of his final four drives. On the bright side, Simpson sits at first in the field this week in terms of strokes gained approaching-the-green. He will be happy to end today's round and hit the reset button before he readies for the weekend.

World No. 16 Paul Casey fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 7-under 133, up one place to T1 and matching the 36-hole clubhouse lead of Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T1, tied with Thomas and Webb Simpson. This is his fifth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 220 career events, previously 1-for-4 converting.

The 40-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.143 strokes off-the-tee and 0.325 around-the-green, but gaining 0.752 approaching-the-green. He was bogey-free 4-under thru 11 holes, circling Nos. 3, 6, 7 and 10, before back-to-back bogey-5s at 12 and 13 (failed scrambles), completing his scoring with birdie-3 at 16. The Englishman's split included four from between seven and 11 feet, recording 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.580 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts. He's currently No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 4.041.

World No. 4 Justin Thomas carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the TOUR Championship for a two-day tally of 7-under 133, up five places to T1 and the new 36-hole clubhouse leader. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas is T1, tied with Paul Casey and Webb Simpson. This is his seventh 36-hole lead/co-lead in 94 career events, previously 4-for-6 converting, including his last four straight.

The 24-year-old walked off with a 5'6" eagle-3, the first eagle of the day at the par-5 18th.

World No. 20 Patrick Reed fired a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 6-under 69-65=134, up 15 places on the live leaderboard to T2, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Justin Rose and the low round of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Reed is T4, one shy of a trio of 36-hole leaders, while his 65 remained the low round of the day.

This is the 27-year-old's fourth straight appearance with a best of T19 on debut in 2014. Today's lap was his 13th, brushing aside a previous-best 67 in R1/2014. The Augusta University product arrived at 23rd in the FedExCup standings and has opened the Playoffs with T20 as defender, T6 at the Dell, and 65th (of 70) and the BMW.

The Texan squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 9 (failed scramble), camouflaged by six circles at 4, 6, 8, 13, 15 and 18.

Nino Bertasio thrashed his second straight 6-under-par 32-33=65 at the Portugal Masters, enjoying a bogey-free lap of Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in round two and taking a one-shot lead over Lucas Bjerregaard and Marc Warren after 36 holes.

The Italian was playing in the final group Friday and set the new mark thanks to six birdies and 12 pars. World No. 409 started his afternoon round with a pair of pars and then moved to double digits under par with a burst of four birdies in six holes, those gains coming at 12, 14, 16 and 17. Bertasio stayed one behind with a run of six pars but made it a three-way tie with a birdie-2 at 6 before adding a go-ahead birdie at 7. With two closing pars he ensured his position as outright leader with 36 holes to play. The 29-year-old's last experience of a halfway lead came at the Challenge Tour's 2015 Irish Challenge. On that occasion, he kept his effort going to the finish before losing a playoff to Tom Murray.

With a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in round two, Marc Warren matched the low lap of the day and joined early clubhouse leader Lucas Bjerregaard in a tie for first place after 36 holes of the Portugal Masters.

Afternoon starter Warren cruised to 11-under 131 thanks to five birdies and an eagle. The Scot also had a piece of the halfway lead in this event 12 months ago before finishing T12 so will want to cash in better on his flying start this time. Starting at the 10th hole today, Warren ticked 11 and then made a surge with a birdie-eagle burst at 16 and 17. For the second day running, he posted red numbers at 2 and 5 before joining Danish star Bjerregaard at 11-under with birdie-2 at 8. The 36-year-old came into the event struggling at 173rd on the Race to Dubai after a string of missed cuts this season but did show a flicker of form with T14 in last month's Made In Denmark.

Lucas Bjerregaard thrashed a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in his second round at the Portugal Masters, reaching 11-under 131 at halfway and taking a two-shot lead in the clubhouse.

With scoring conditions still good at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, former winner Shane Lowry, England's Eddie Pepperell and South African George Coetzee all posted the early number of 9-under. Bjerregaard, who had opened with a 66 on day one, hit that mark with a burst of four birdies in five holes (4, 5, 7 and 8 on his front nine). The Dane then became the first player to hit double digits under par with a go-ahead birdie on the par-5 12th and doubled his advantage with another circle on the par-5 17th. Bjerregaard is clearly a big fan of this track having finished T12 and T9 the last two years and returned on the back of a top 10 at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland on his last start. Gamers who took note of those converging trends are sitting pretty although there are several players in the afternoon wave who could still displace him as the 36-hole leader.
