Russell Henley spun a remarkable 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the RBC Heritage to take the clubhouse lead at 5-under 279.

Henley's round was the lowest of the day at the time of his posting, and first of the day in the 60s. It looked like he was playing a different course, with four birdies in his opening 11 holes, but finally gave back his first stroke of the day at the par-4 12th and then surrendered one more at the 18th when he failed to save par from an approach over the green. The rookie hasn't scored a top 10 since his win at the Sony Open to start his season, but with the wind howling steadily in the 20 MPH range and reaching 40 MPH in gusts it is a virtual certainty that will change today. If the leaders struggle enough on the back nine, he could find himself with a chance to win. He is not in the field for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Brian Harman takes a one-stroke lead over Steve Stricker into the final round of the John Deere Classic after spinning a 6-under-par 31-34=65 in round three.

Harman was cruising towards a three-stroke lead before he suffered a bogey at the par-4 18th, dropping to 17-under 196, at the same time Stricker holed an unlikely birdie for a two-stroke swing. Harman found four birdies and two eagles on his lap around TPC Deere Run, giving back just two strokes. The first eagle came at the par-5 second from 29'4" and his second was a 46'11" conversion on the par-5 17th. His shortest birdie of the day was from 12'1" on the par-4 14th, so the long wand was working in a big way. It's no surprise that he gained over two strokes with the flat stick. He missed just two fairways and one GIR. He will likely need a similar effort tomorrow if he is to claim his first PGA TOUR win while preventing Stricker from capturing his fourth JDC.

Tim Clark conjured up a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-31=64 in his third round of the John Deere Classic and enters the finale at 14-under 199.

Clark picked up two birdies on the front nine at TPC Deere Run, before scorching the back with five more. His 14'7" birdie at the par-5 10th was easily the highlight. A previous runner-up at this stop, he hit every fairway and every GIR in the third round. His last bogey came on his final hole in round one, making him blemish-free for his last 36 holes. He'll try and go low in Sunday's final round in an effort to pick up just his second PGA TOUR title.

Scott Brown scorched TPC Deere Run for a bogey-free 10-under-par 31-30=61 in the third round of the John Deere Classic to take the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 15-under 198.

Brown's birdies came in bunches and started early. After circling a pair at Nos. 2 and 3, he picked off two more at the seventh and eighth holes. Turning his attention to the back, he added birdies at the 10th, 11th, 13th, 14th, 15th and 17th holes. His irons gave him excellent looks, as only three of his birdies were longer than 10 feet, highlighted by a 15'3" effort at the par-4 11th. While he didn't break the course record of 59, he did establish a new career low. Brown will try and go deep again on Sunday in hopes of procuring his second PGA TOUR win.

Chris Kirk signed for a pair of even-par 71s at the John Deere Classic and missed the cut by two strokes.

Some thrive in shootouts and some die. Kirk arrived at TPC Deere having cashed in 22 consecutive starts dating back to last season, but he'll be forced to start anew at next week's Open Championship. He buried seven birdies against five bogeys, but was stung by a triple bogey at the par-4 18th hole in his opening round where he rinsed his approach and couldn't find the putting surface until his sixth whack. Other notables that missed the cut include: 141--Brian Stuard; Ben Martin ... 142--Kevin Streelman; Billy Hurley III ... 143--Pat Perez; Robert Garrigus; Patrick Rodgers ... 144--Jason Bohn; Jason Allred ... 146--Roberto Castro ... 147--Scott Stallings ... 148--2001 champ David Gossett.

Bud Cauley has crafted a pair of bogey-free, 4-under-par 67s to begin the John Deere Classic.

Cauley remains on fire. After sharing fourth place at Greenbrier on Sunday, he's gone 11-for-11 in scrambling at TPC Deere Run and converted four birdies in each round. Today's set featured rolls from 14'9" and 13'1" at Nos. 4 and 6, respectively. At 8-under 134, the 24-year-old is four strokes back of the 36-hole co-leaders.

Overnight co-leader Zach Johnson turned in 4-under-par 34-33=67 for his second round of the John Deere Classic to post 12-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole lead.

ZJ muscled out today's score. He went just 3-for-6 in scrambling with three bogeys, but compensated with seven birdies. The set included conventional conversions from 14'5", 20'10" and 16'3" at Nos. 8, 13 and 14, respectively. He also circled a zero-putt four-yarder at 10. At the time he signed his card, he co-led the field with 15 birdies at the break. Expect another dark red number on Saturday.

Charles Howell III enjoyed a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

Well, he had a good time in places, shall we say. CH3 hit only 11 greens in regulation and swallowed four bogeys, but he rolled in three birdies and recorded two eagles. The first eagle came conventionally, sort of. He drove the green at the par-4 14th, and then drilled home the putt from 36'6". (Howell III chased that with a par save from 20'6" at the par-4 15th). Then, after circling a birdie-4 at No. 2, he jarred his tee ball from 132 yards for a hole-in-one at the par-3 third. So, he penciled at least one of every digit from 1-6 on today's card. It's the second time in seven weeks that he's recorded two eagles in the same round (first round, Memorial, eagle-2 and eagle-3). At 8-under 134, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead at TPC Deere Run.

William McGirt backed up his opening 64 at the John Deere Classic with a 5-under-par 36-30=66 in his second round to post 12-under 130, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

McGirt finished three strokes lower than anyone in the late-early draw through two rounds. He went just 3-for-6 in scrambling for three bogeys today, but manufactured eight birdies, including six on his inward nine (the front side of TPC Deere Run). Three of his conventional birdies disappeared from outside 13 feet, the longest stretching 22'1" at the par-3 third hole. He also holed out for birdie from seven yards away and in front of the green at the par-3 seventh.

Tim Clark torched TPC Deere Run for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

When you open birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie as the South African did today, you expect to take it deep. So, props to Clark for making that run count. He hit 14 greens in regulation and total eight birdies, the longest measuring 17'2" and 36'8" at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. At 7-under 135, he's strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Patrick Cantlay did not tee off as scheduled for his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The rookie was slated to go off in the last threesome off the 10th tee at 2:15 p.m. CT today. He was not replaced in the field probably because no alternates were on site or immediately available. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Media alerted its followers on Twitter that Cantlay withdrew due to a back injury. This gives gamers reason to be concerned as he had been sidelined for months due to a fractured vertebra.

Brian Harman spun an 8-under-par 32-31=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic to join the clubhouse co-leaders.

For a guy with a penchant of going low, it's saying something that this is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 63 at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. Harman went 8-for-16 in birdie chances today and added a five-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 13th hole. His longest conventional conversions stretched 11'4" and 21'7" at Nos. 11 and 12, respectively. But since he two-putted three times from nine feet and in, including a miss from just 38 inches at the par-5 second hole, his strokes gained-putting landed at about 0.000 when he walked off.
