Jonathan Byrd is not listed in the published field of next week's Tampa Bay Championship.

All expectations were that Byrd would return to competition at this event. He's alluded to it on numerous occasions since having surgery on his left wrist on Oct. 29. UPDATE: A couple of hours after the field was released, Byrd posted the following message on Twitter: "Changed my start to Houston now instead of The Tampa Bay Classic [sic] ...missing a great tournament but need a few more weeks to be ready to go!"

Will MacKenzie enjoyed a shot to remember en route to a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic after which he finished with a share of the overnight lead at 12-under 198.

MacKenzie totaled 15 greens in regulation for the third consecutive round at Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course to set the table for Moving Day. He opened with a standard-issue birdie at the par-4 first. After four pars, he flew his tee into the cup on the fly from 174 yards at the par-3 sixth. (To view the shot, click on the link below.) He added three birdies, including rolls from 14-and-a-half feet at the par-5 seventh and a walk-off grinner from 43'7" at the par-4 18th. MacKenzie will wake up on Sunday in prime position to secure his third PGA TOUR title and first since 2008.

Andrew Svoboda turned in his third 4-under-par 66 at The McGladrey Classic to establish a share of the 54-hole lead at 12-under 198.

While he started on the 10th hole in the second round, he's scored bogey-free, 3-under 32 on holes 1-9 every day. Today's stroll around Seaside included six birdies, four of which from outside 20 feet! He opened with his longest from 31'7" at the par-4 first hole. Svoboda's only blemish occurred at the par-4 11th where he didn't find the putting surface until his fourth stroke and eventually penciled in a 6. Given his position on the leaderboard and today's clinic, he leads the fields in strokes gained: putting at 9.046.

Chris Kirk enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic to post 9-under 201 and earn a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

It was a bit of a mixed bag for the defending champ at Seaside today. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, but squared three bogeys, including a three-putt from inside 25 feet at the par-4 second hole. Overall, he fanned on three tries inside eight feet. However, Kirk more than made up for the close calls with an eagle from 115 yards in the fairway at the par-4 eighth hole. He also converted five birdies, including rolls from 24'6", 13'1" and 14'11" at Nos. 1, 4 and 18, respectively.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew prior to his third round of the Bridgestone Open on the Japan Golf Tour.

Sneds cruised into the weekend at 2-under-par 71-69=140 -- the cut fell at 2-over 144 -- but he's shown as having withdrawn. No news has surfaced to explain why and he hasn't tweeted since Wednesday, so we'll have to await for the other shoe to drop on Saturday. His next scheduled start is the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6-9.
Oct 25 - 12:55 AM

Zach Johnson completed 36 holes of The McGladrey Classic in 4-over-par 71-73=144 and missed the cut by four strokes.

The local resident was poised to cash, but he played his last eight holes in birdie-free 6-over with two bogeys and two doubles. Overall, he split 24 (of 28) fairways and hit 28 greens in regulation, but got loose at the wrong time. It's his first MC since the Travelers Championship, thus ending a modest consecutive cuts made streak at eight. It's also the first time that Johnson has opened the season with a missed cut since his rookie year of 2004. Other notables that failed to survive include: 141--2010 champ Heath Slocum; Harris English ... 142--local resident Jonathan Byrd ... 144--Padraig Harrington ... 146--Russell Knox; Scott Brown.
Oct 24 - 8:57 PM

Lucas Glover reached the midpoint of The McGladrey Classic in even-par 73-67=140 to survive the cut on the number.

Not only was today's 3-under aggregate his lowest since a second-round 66 at the 2014 WM Phoenix Open, but Glover will cash for the first time anywhere in eight starts (Memorial). He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at Seaside today. It was a stark reversal of his lid-lifter during which he went just 1-for-13 in birdie chances and squared four bogeys. He's one of 88 golfers that survived today's cut -- 22 on the number -- so a second cut of low 70 and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes.
Oct 24 - 8:29 PM

Overnight co-leader Michael Thompson failed to capitalize on his position and settled for a 1-over-par 37-34=71 in today's second round of The McGladrey Classic.

Thompson hit 12 greens in regulation and curled in four birdies, including conversions from 14'5", 20'8" and 12'10" at Nos. 1, 3 and 9, respectively. He also hit the putting surface with his tee ball at the par-3 17th hole, but took four whacks from 39'4" and swallow a double bogey. The distance to the hole of his third putt (4'5") was longer than his second (2'11"). At 4-under 136, he's suddenly five swing adrift of 36-hole leader Russell Henley.
Oct 24 - 7:26 PM

Russell Henley blistered Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course for a 7-under-par 33-30=63 in his second round of The McGladrey Classic to assume outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 9-under 131.

Henley missed only two (of 14) fairways and went 8-for-15 in birdie opportunities. Five of those conversions dropped in from outside 11 feet, the longest measuring 20 feet at the par-3 sixth. His only blemish occurred at the par-4 10th where he began his walk. His approach into the green came to rest well left of it and he'd settle for bogey. Today's score matches his career low on the PGA TOUR. He spun all of the first three en route to his breakthrough victory at the 2013 Sony Open in Hawaii.
Oct 24 - 1:05 PM

In his first round in over five months, Mark Anderson shot an even-par 35-35=70 on Thursday at The McGladrey Classic.

Back from an injury to his right ankle due to a fall off a ladder, Anderson couldn't have asked for a more exciting day. After opening par-par, he holed his tee ball from 212 yards at the par-3 third. He'd go on to incur four bogeys in a six-hole stretch beginning at the par-4 eighth -- two were as a result of three-putts -- but birdies at 15 and 16 helped ease the sting and avert an over-par score. Overall, Anderson split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, fair numbers given his competitive layoff.
Oct 23 - 6:56 PM

Will MacKenzie totaled a field-high seven birdies en route to a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

MacKenzie was the fourth to 65 today, but he was the first from the afternoon wave. He birdied both par 5s and five par 4s. His longest conversion measured 20'11" for birdie at No. 18, his ninth hole of the round. The fireworks were set up by 13 (of 14) fairways hit and 15 greens in regulation. His only blemish occurred at the par-4 16th where he found trouble off the tee and took a penalty before penciling in a 6. MacKenzie is making his season debut this week. After a sparkling first half of 2013-14, he concluded the campaign 3-for-14 with no top 25s.
