Thorbjørn Olesen withdrew prior to his second round of the Shell Houston Open due to injuries sustained in a car crash on Wednesday.

The Dane opened with a 10-over-par 40-42=82. He was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 2:00 p.m. CT today. Given what he relayed to his followers on Twitter after deciding to pull out, it's a wonder that he gave it a go on Thursday. "Pulled out of #shellhoustonopen gutted. Docs advice. Had car crash on wed night. Wrecked my car. Got whiplash. Hope I'm ok for Augusta." The good news is that he didn't have to burn a sponsor exemption this week since he cracked the field at Redstone on a top-10 exemption via Bay Hill, but he's obviously a question mark for the season's first major.

Overnight co-leader Jason Day roasted Plainfield Country Club with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 to conclude his eighth appearance at 19-under 261, the lowest 72-hole aggregate in the nine-year history of The Barclays in the FedExCup Playoffs format, and a six-shot victory over runner-up Henrik Stenson.

After opening in 68-68-63, Day began championship Sunday sharing the lead with playing partner Sangmoon Bae. On his round, he landed seven (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, registering a sterling 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.830 in strokes gained: putting. The Aussie circled eight on the card in the finale, finishing the week with 21 birdies (T2 in that stat), an eagle, and first in the field with just four bogeys. His 62 matches the low round of the tournament and matches his career best as well. Day rode his 20th consecutive round of par-or-better to his sixth career title (168 starts), fourth this season, and third in his last four starts. It's also his second straight 54-hole lead/co-lead that he's converted, including his win at the PGA Championship in his last event. The 27-year-old takes over the FedExCup lead with the win, supplanting Jordan Spieth, who missed the cut.

Brian Harman aced the 218-yard, par-3 14th with a hybrid club (see video link below), his second hole-in-one of the round, to move back to even-par on the day and even for the tournament, currently T46 on the live leaderboard.

Harman had registered a pedestrian 21 putts thru his first 14 holes, but it doesn't matter, after he became just the third player in PGA TOUR history to record two aces in the same round. The last time, Yusaku Miyazato at the 2006 Reno-Tahoe Open. The 28-year-old also aced the 183-yard, par-3 third. Interestingly enough, both chased bogey-5s, so the southpaw is definitely improving his bounce-back stat, where he ranks 160th on the PGA TOUR. Harman entered the week 69th in the FedExCup standings and projects 67th with play still in progress. He had zero aces in over 1,500 par 3s played on TOUR prior to today.

Jason Day authored a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the third round of The Barclays to reach the three-quarter pole at 11-under 199, good for share of the clubhouse lead with Sangmoon Bae. UPDATE: With play completed, Day shares a one-stroke lead with Bae heading into Sunday's final round.

Day had played 20 holes without a blemish prior to squaring bogey at the par-4 17th, the result of finding trouble off the tee. He started a new streak with a 10'6" sidewinder at the par-4 18th for his seventh par breaker of the round. The Aussie began Moving Day in a seven-way tie for eighth at 4-under, three adrift and playing with Bae five groups ahead of 36-hole leader Bubba Watson. On his loop, he landed eight (of 14) fairways, for a third consecutive round, and hit 15 greens in regulation, circling six birdies and an eagle-3 for 1.533 putts per GIR. The 27-year-old's 63 is his best at The Barclays in 30 career rounds, besting a 64 he shot in last year's edition (Ridgewood CC) where he finished tied runner-up after co-leading thru 54 holes.

Sangmoon Bae authored a 7-under-par 30-33=63 in today's third round of The Barclays in Edison, New Jersey, to post 11-under 199, good for a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead with Jason Day. UPDATE: With Saturday's play completed, Bae shares a one-stroke lead with Day heading into Sunday's finale.

Bae began his loop in a seven-way logjam at 4-under (T8) and three adrift. Facing a two-year military commitment back in his native South Korea, he circled nine on the card to camouflage two bogeys and shares the top spot in the clubhouse with playing partner Day. Bae penciled four in a bogey-free outward half, including a 19-footer at the par-4 seventh and a 26-footer at the par-4 fifth, respectively. After the break, he overshadowed two bogeys at Nos. 10 and 17 with five birdies, including three consecutive on 14-16. The 29-year-old capped his round with a walk-off 3 from 16'3" at the last. His 63 is a season low on 85 rounds and matches a career mark shot in the first round of the 2014 Sony Open. His three-day total of 21 birdies ranks first in the tournament at last check.

PGA TOUR rookie Carlos Ortiz smoothed a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 in today's third round of The Barclays to post 7-under 203, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Ortiz began the day one better than the cut-line at 1-over (T50) and eight shots adrift of 36-hole leader Bubba Watson. With the lead pairing still an hour from heading out, Ortiz was putting the wraps on an eight-birdie loop of Plainfield CC, vaulting 49 places on the live leaderboard to tie the top spot. On his round, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and landed just 12 greens in regulation, but registered 4.880 in strokes gained: putting and 1.417 putts per GIR at the time he signed his card. The 24-year-old's set included six conversions from inside nine feet and was highlighted by a hole-out, birdie-4 from a green-side bunker at the 16th. His 62 is career best in 95 rounds, eclipsing a 65 he shot in the final round of the 2014-15 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Thomas Pieters hung up a 7-under-par 31-34=65 in round three of the D+D REAL Czech Masters and holds a one-shot lead over Pelle Edberg after 54 holes.

And yet his margin could have been wider. At the 11th hole, Pieters struck his second shot from the rough but then discovered he'd played the wrong ball. That incurred a two-shot penalty and turned a par into a double bogey-6. He responded with three birdies in his next five holes and meant he didn't waste a golden start which saw him bag an eagle-3 at the opening holes and add birdies at 2, 8, 9 and 10. The 65 took him to 17-under 199, one clear of Edberg and four in front of Thorbjorn Olesen in third. Matt Fitzpatrick and Robert Dinwiddie (both -12) are the only other players double digits under par so Pieters is in great position to land his first European Tour title. The 23-year-old, who hit 17 greens in regulation in round three, said, "The 11th hurts a little bit because it is my mistake. It could have been a lower one but I’m still really happy with the way I played. I need to stay patient tomorrow."

Sergio Garcia is not among the commitments to next week's Deutsche Bank Championship.

This is interesting. He's already sitting out The Barclays, but the expectation was for him to return at TPC Boston on Sept. 4. Now, even though the commitment deadline was today at 5:00 p.m. ET, the field won't be set officially until the conclusion of play at Plainfield Country Club this weekend, so perhaps Garcia pops up when the published field is updated on Monday, just don't bet on it. He's 31st in the FedExCup standings, but the only other time he's sat out the first two legs was in 2010 when he started the Playoffs slotted 101st and took two months off for personal reasons. The Spaniard also took a pass on the DBC in 2012 and 2014 before resuming his schedule at the BMW Championship both times. He's advanced to East Lake in each of the last three years. If he commits to the field of 70 at this year's BMW (Sept. 17-20), he'll have some confidence in knowing that he tied for 18th the first time Conway Farms hosted in 2013.

At 5-over-par 72-73=145, Brooks Koepka missed the cut at The Barclays by three strokes.

It's his first MC in 10 starts. He striped only six (of 14) fairways in each round but manufactured 12 scoring opportunities in both strolls around Plainfield Country Club. Alas, Koepka connected for only one eagle and three birdies while dropping 10 shots with eight bogeys and a double. Other notables who missed the cut include: 143--Brandt Snedeker; Rickie Fowler; Gary Woodland; Will Wilcox ... 144--Chris Kirk; Brendon de Jonge; Adam Scott ... 145--Brendan Steele; Nick Watney ... 147--Keegan Bradley; Daniel Berger; Scott Brown; Jonas Blixt ... 148--Marc Leishman; Boo Weekley ... 149--defending champion Hunter Mahan; Davis Love III ... 150--David Lingmerth; Ryan Moore ... 152--Ian Poulter ... 153--Billy Horschel.

FedExCup points leader Jordan Spieth completed 36 holes of The Barclays in 7-over-par 74-73=147, missing the cut by five strokes.

Oh, the shock and the awe. While this ends his consecutive cuts made streak at eight, five others had longer stretches entering the week. In a phrase, Plainfield Country Club won this battle. Spieth split 17 (of 28) fairways but landed only 21 of the massive greens in regulation. His aggregate stroke gained: putting measured 1.202, but he registered a strokes gained: tee-to-green clip of -6.235. While he has his first unplanned weekend off since THE PLAYERS, the added insult is that Rory McIlroy will return to the top spot in the Official World Golf Ranking in the next update. Granted, it's an irrelevant fact in our world, but nonetheless a narrative tonight. Both golfers are expected to compete in next week's Deutsche Bank Championship, which is scheduled to begin on Friday, Sept. 4.

Overnight quad-leader Bubba Watson connected from 12'3" at the par-4 18th hole at Plainfield Country Club in today's second round of The Barclays to touch 2-under-par 34-34=68 and post 7-under 133 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The lefty found only four (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation today, but he limited the damage to two bogeys while holing four birdies. The conversion at the last was his longest, but he also poured one in from 10'3" at the par-4 15th hole. At last check, Watson led the field in distance off the tee (332.9 yards) and strokes gained: tee-to-green (8.182). However, he's missed 17 of 28 fairways, thus proving that bomb-and-gouge still works like a charm on a short track with challenging rough.
Aug 28 - 5:52 PM

Matt Fitzpatrick tacked on a 5-under-par 35-32=67 to his opening 66 and shares the lead after two rounds of the D+D REAL Czech Masters in Prague.

Fitzpatrick is tied at the top on 11-under 133 with Sweden's Pelle Edberg, the pair a shot clear of Belgian Thomas Pieters. The young Englishman's Friday lap of Albatross featured three birdies along with an eagle-3 at the 12th and, for the second day running, he was bogey free. So far this week, Fitzpatrick has split 24 (of 28) fairways, hit 32 greens out of 36 and is 4-for-4 in scrambling. He'll go into the weekend in great position to secure his first European Tour win. "It was very consistent today," he said. "I played nicely and hit a lot of greens again which is always important to keep making pars and then take your chances when you have them. I got a bit frustrated in the middle of the round when I wasn’t holing any putts; I missed a few chances but picked it up on the back nine."
