Walker's round opened with a disappointing birdie on the par-5 second when he failed to convert an 8'6" eagle opportunity. His round gathered momentum when he circled five birdies on an eight-hole span beginning with the par-5 eighth. He would give back a stroke on the par-4 16th after an errant approach, then respond with a par on the 17th and a birdie on the par-5 18th. He will try and put a bow on is third top five of 2013 in the final round.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 115 Danny Lee orchestrated a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 7-under 203, down one place into a two-way T2, two back of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson, who he'll be grouped with in Sunday's final threesome.

After kicking off in 70 and week-low 64, the South Korean-born New Zealander co-led with three others on 6-under. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he bobbed and weaved to an even-par first half, but came home in blemish-free 1-under. The 25-year-old mustered eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.090 strokes around-the-green and 1.729 tee-to-green. He cancelled out three birdies at 1, 2 and 5 (from 15'6") with bogeys at 3, 7 (3-putt from 24'4") and 8, before walking off with birdie-3 at 18 from 16'1". Lee posted 1.727 putts per GIR and 0.271 SG: Putting. He's vying for a second TOUR title in his 155th career event, joining his maiden victory at the 2015 Greenbrier, where he came from one back with 3-under 67 and won in a 4-man playoff.

World No. 14 Paul Casey crafted a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach 7-under 203, up three spots to T2, two back of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson, who he'll be grouped with in Sunday's final threesome.

After opening in 69-66, the 39-year-old began in a 4-way T5 on 5-under, one shy of a foursome of overnight leaders. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he went out in birdie-less 1-over, but awoke to come home in 3-under. The Englishman landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.139 strokes tee-to-green. He squared bogeys at eight and 12 (failed scrambles), overshadowed by four birdies at 10, 11, 13 and 18, three from inside of five feet and a walk-off 3 from 23'2". Casey recorded 1.667 putts per GIR though -0.139 SG: Putting. He's chasing his second TOUR title in 211 career events, joining his maiden win at the 2009 Shell Houston Open where he was a 54-hole co-leader and won in a playoff.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 65 Webb Simpson carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational for a 54-hole tally of 9-under 201, good for a 2-shot lead over Paul Casey and Danny Lee, who he'll be grouped with in Sunday's finale.

After kicking off in 68-66, the 31-year-old co-led with three others, his first lead/co-lead after any round since co-leading thru 36 holes here last year. Playing out of the final twosome, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.609 strokes around-the-green but still gaining 3.059 strokes tee-to-green. The Wake Forest alum squared a lone bogey-4 at eight (3-putt from 60'6"), offset by four birdies at 1, 2, 10 and 11, two of those dropping from between 12 and 15 feet. He posted 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.941 SG: Putting. This is Simpson's seventh 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 225th career event, first since T1 at the 2014 Hyundai TOC (finished T3), and is 2-for-6 converting.

Defending champ and World No. 7 Jordan Spieth birdied two of his final three holes en route to a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach 4-under 206, up two spots on the live leaderboard to T9.

After opening in 70-68, the 23-year-old began T11 on 2-under, four back of a foursome of overnight co-leaders. He lost his regular caddie mid-round due to heat-related illness, with Spieth's personal trainer toting the bag the rest of the way. The Texan found 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, gaining 3.176 strokes tee-to-green. He squared three bogeys at holes 4, 9 and 14, camouflaged by five birdies at 1, 2, 8, 16 and 18, two of those dropping from 14 and 23 feet. Spieth posted 1.500 putts per GIR, the current leader in the latter with a cumulative 1.500, and -0.160 SG: Putting, missing three putts from inside of six feet.

Due to threat of severe weather, the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational on Sunday will feature threesomes off split tees from approximately 9:45-11:45am CT.

As things currently stand, World No. 208 Stewart Cink is the 54-hole clubhouse leader on 6-under 204 and would be in the finale threesome on Sunday after a third-round 4-under-par 32-34=66. He's making his 17th appearance at Colonial CC and is now 15-for-17 after opening with 68-70. The 44-year-old missed his two most recent tries in 2016 and 2013, but otherwise has 10 top 25s and two top 10s (T4/2006; T2/2000). He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation in R3, gaining 2.884 strokes tee-to-green and 5.017 SG: Total. The Georgia Tech alum squared bogeys at 5 and 16, offset by six birdies at 1, 3, 6, 9, 12 and 13, four from between 12 and 24 feet, recording 1.688 putts per GIR and 2.133 SG: Putting. UPDATE: With play completed, Cink is T4 and will be in the penultimate threesome.

With conditions tough, Andrew Dodt had just a single bogey on his card in a third-round 4-under-par 35-33=68 and raced through the field to post the clubhouse lead of 8-under 208 after 54 holes of the BMW PGA Championship.

He holds a one-shot advantage over Branden Grace, with Lee Westwood and Francesco Molinari a further two strokes in arrears. The combination of fast greens and strong breezes are always likely to benefit an Aussie so Dodt's rise to the top of the Wentworth leaderboard in round three made sense despite a previous best finish of T39 in this event from six previous tries. It was a struggle for everyone on the West Course's front nine today and Dodt could only manage six pars and a bogey-6 at the 4th on his opening seven holes. But after that the two-time European Tour winner was excellent. He balanced the books with a birdie at 8 and then kicked on with back-to-back red numbers at 11 and 12. Dodt rolled in a 10 foot birdie putt at 14 and kept the momentum going by draining a 20 footer for par at 16. A final circle of the day at 17 took him into the outright lead, a shot clear of Grace. He'd started the day in a tie for 10th.

Jason Dufner settled for a 1-over-par 35-36=71 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, giving him a two-day total of 5-over 145 to miss the cut on the number.

A total of 72 (of 121) gofers will play the weekend. The golfers that started in the morning on Thursday appear to have gotten the better end of the weather draw, with seven of the top 10 coming from the AM/PM wave. Dufner was unfortunate to be on the wrong side of the draw this week, but still nearly found his way into the weekend, falling right on the number. The closing blow was a double bogey at the par-4 17th. Other notables to MC include: 145- Si Woo Kim, Bryson DeChambeau, Cameron Smith; 146- Pat Perez; 147- Kyle Stanley; 148- Zac Blair, Luke List, Beau Hossler; 150- Jamie Sadlowski (TOUR debut).

Scott Piercy pushed his way up the leaderboard in round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, styling a 4-under-par 33-33=66, reaching the weekend in a share of the clubhouse lead on 6-under 134.

Fighting through an illness, Piercy pieced together six birdies to camouflage a pair of bogeys. His irons and wedges were dialed in today as he set up seven birdie looks from inside 11 feet and converted on six of them, with none of his circles coming from long distance. The old adage states, "fear the injured golfer," and that certainly applied to Piercy today as he was cleary not 100% as he navigated Colonial Country Club. His lethargic body language perhaps helped him slow down mentally which helped on the greens as he gained 2.344 strokes putting over the field. Entering the week, he'd lost 10.2 strokes putting over his last 3 starts but currently ranks 9th in the field putting this week.
May 26 - 6:48 PM

Kevin Kisner cruised his way toward a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, climbing to 6-under 134 after two days, claiming a share of the clubhouse lead with Webb Simpson, Danny Lee, and Scott Piercy.

Kisner was attacking flagstick all day, sticking seven approach shots inside 17 feet, with three landing inside a five-foot radius of the pin. On top of the steady stream of mid-range looks, Kisner also poured one in from 24'5" at the par-4 15th. After the round, he cited his recent struggles with the flat stick (losing strokes putting in each of his last two starts) but at the moment he ranks 5th in the field for strokes gained putting. Despite all the career success he's racked up, this will go in the books as just the second career 36-hole lead/co-lead for the Georgia Bulldog.
May 26 - 6:39 PM

Danny Lee blitzed Colonial Country Club with a 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, signing the low round of the day (and week) to soar up the leaderboard, grabbing a piece of the clubhouse lead on 6-under 134.

The Irving, Texas, resident circled seven birdies today, offsetting a lone bogey which came at the par-4 15th when he couldn't save par from just inside six feet. He also let one slip away when he missed a 3'5" birdie attempt early on in the round. To make up for those short misses, he added a pair of bonus birdies from the 24-to-28 foot range. Overall, he gained 2.921 strokes putting on the day to pair with 3.276 strokes gained approaching-the-green. Lee has led/co-led after six rounds on the PGA TOUR, but this would be his first time lead/co-leading at the midpoint. With local knowledge on his side, Lee is one to watch closely over the weekend.
May 26 - 6:25 PM

Webb Simpson styled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, staking out the top spot on the leaderboard at 6-under 134 as the afternoon wave gets underway.

Playing on the wrong side of the weather draw, Simpson didn't let that bother him as he's traded 10 birdies with just four bogeys over the opening 36 holes. The club that generally holds Simpson back is the flat stick but he sank four putts from outside 10 feet today, gaining 2.489 strokes putting at the time he walked off the course. On the week he now ranks 9th in that regard after gaining 1.827 strokes putting on day one. Simpson will likely get overtaken by someone in the afternoon wave, but if he doesn't this will be the second straight year he's found himself at the top here after two rounds. He went on to finish T3 last year after co-leading at the midpoint. There is clearly something that Simpson likes about this classical layout as he's now carded six straight rounds at 68 or better.
