Kyle Stanley found himself in contention for the first time since his 2012 win at the Waste Management Phoenix Open and responded with a bogey-free final-round 5-under-par 35-32=67 at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Stanley's 17-under 271 was good for third place, and marks the first time he's picked up a top 15 since the aforementioned WMPO win. It's been a long time coming for a guy that was expected to be a contender almost any time he teed it up, and playing his final eight holes at TPC Louisiana in 4-under could be the spark he needs to get his year going. Though he's battled the putter all season, he managed to convert a 17'9" attempt on the par-3 14th when it mattered. He now heads to Quail Hollow with confidence high on a course where his length and ball-striking prowess could be a huge advantage.

Matt Kuchar splashed in from the greenside bunker on the 72nd hole to secure a one-stroke victory at the RBC Heritage.

At last! After three consecutive close calls, Kuchar finally got his. He was nearly perfect on the front nine with six birdies for a 6-under 30 before coming in at 34 on the back and post a 64. He was bogey-free and flushed his tee ball to 51 inches at the par-3 17th, but promptly three-jacked for bogey. It seemed to be just another chapter of disappointments, especially when he landed his approach at the last 19 yards short and in the sand. But the golf gods finally acquiesced when his blast landed softly and curled in for a closing birdie and 11-under-par 273. He started the day four strokes in arrears of 54-hole leader Luke Donald, who settled for runner-up honors. While Kuchar would have eventually qualified for the PGA Championship, today's win clinches that berth.

Lee Westwood breezed to a seven-stroke victory at the Maybank Malaysian Open.

Westwood posted 18-under-par 65-66-71-68=270 for an outright wire-to-wire triumph over a trio of runners-up in Nicolas Colsaerts, Louis Oosthuizen and Bernd Wiesberger. The Brit missed 17 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to three bogeys and a double. He was bogey-free in the finale at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. "It’s a golf course that suits my game," Westwood said. "It’s very tight in certain areas. I played well, I putted well, and the short game is good." This is his first victory anywhere since the 2012 Nordea Masters. It also secures a berth in this summer's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Luke Donald blitzed Harbour Town Golf Links for a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the RBC Heritage and enjoys a two-stroke lead over John Huh with 18 holes to play.

Donald got things started early with a 23'2" eagle on the par-5 second, but alternated two birdies with three bogeys on the rest of his front nine. He was blemish-free on the back, gathering four more birdies on his way to the clubhouse. In addition to the eagle, he had three other birdie conversions from between 14 and 20 feet. His irons were on point, landing 14 GIR for the second consecutive round, and he is tied for second with 72.2 percent for the week. The Englishman has experienced no shortage of success in his recent visits to Hilton Head Island. He's cracked the top three in four of his last five attempts to slip on the tartan jacket, but has yet to emerge with a win.

Kevin Na completed 36 holes of the RBC Heritage in 6-over-par 72-76=148 and missed the cut by two strokes.

After trading two birdies with three bogeys in the lid-lifter, Na went 0-for-11 in par-breaker chances in the second round, which he concluded on Friday. It's just the second MC in his last nine starts, a run that has included three top 10s and another three top 25s. Other notables that failed to survive include: 147--2006 RBC champ Aaron Baddeley; Roberto Castro; Cameron Tringale ... 148--2012 RBC champ Carl Pettersson; 2002 RBC champ Justin Leonard; Hunter Mahan; Marc Leishman; Tom Watson ... 149--1999 RBC champ Glen Day ... 150--five-time RBC champ and all-time earnings leader at the tournament, Davis Love III; Hideki Matsuyama ... 153--1984 RBC champ Nick Faldo ... 154--Russell Henley; Will MacKenzie. The third round began at 12:20 p.m. ET with golfers grouped in threesome off split tees. The leaders are scheduled to go off the first tee at 2:20 p.m.

Ben Martin backed up his opening 69 at the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his second round to post 5-under 137, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Martin was alone atop the leaderboard and bogey-free in the round until incurring a bogey-5 at the ninth hole, his last of the loop. Prior to it, he rolled in four birdies, including conversions of 14'1" and 12'8" at the 13th and fifth holes, respectively. The PGA TOUR sophomore -- his rookie season was 2011 -- is a Clemson product, and the RBC is the only TOUR event in South Carolina, so there's some synergy in play as he chased his first victory this weekend.

Jim Furyk crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Furyk split 11 (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-5 in scrambling during his two-day loop of Harbour Town. He found five birdies, including a 15-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 third. His longest of the conventional variety measured 16'8" at 11 and 10'5" at 9. He made only one bogey in the lid-lifter.

Billy Hurley III twirled a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 3-under 139, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit only 10 greens in regulation and circled two birdies, but today's scoring average is likely going to showcase this as one of the rounds of the day. Toss in the fact that this is his first appearance at Harbour Town and he entered on an 0-for-3 skid. Hurley III opened par-birdie-par-birdie, the last conversion measuring 14'6" at the par-3 fourth hole.

Bill Haas withdrew from the RBC Heritage prior to his second round, citing a wrist injury.

Haas was scheduled to go off the first tee at 12:50 p.m. ET. He opened with a 1-over-par 36-36=72. It's the first time in 251 PGA TOUR starts that he's withdrawn during a tournament and it ends his consecutive cuts made streak at 14. He co-led the Shell Houston Open after 18 holes and sat alone at the top of the Masters after one round, but went on to finish T37 and T20, respectively. If an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you.

K.J. Choi spun a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Choi hit 11 greens in regulation today and picked off six birdies, including a hole-out from the rough seven yards away at the par-4 11th. All of his other par breakers were of the conventional method and included conversions from 14 feet, 24'2" and 23'3" at Nos. 2, 8 and 16, respectively. He also saved par from 10'1" at the par-4 third. The South Korean tied for 18th at Harbour Town last year.

During his second round of the Maybank Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, Pablo Larrazábal found refuge in a lake after being attacked by hornets.

He was playing the par-5 fifth hole when the dangerous insects were seemingly attracted to his shirt. "They were three times the size of bees," he said. "They were huge and like 30 or 40 of them started to attack me big time. I didn’t know what to do. My caddie told me to run, so I start running like a crazy guy, but the hornets were still there, so the other players told me to jump in the lake. I ran to the lake, threw my scorecard down, took off my shoes and jumped in the water. It was the scariest moment of my career, for sure. I’ve never been so scared." Naturally, he birdied the hole and shot 4-under 68. "The referees and a doctor took me aside and gave me a couple of injections and told me to relax. After the injections I felt a lot better and could continue. Without the help of the referees I couldn’t have finished the round, because I was in no state to play golf."

In a feature at Golfweek.com, Jim McCabe explained why Steve Marino hadn't competed in 2014 until his first round of the RBC Heritage.

After missing the cut at the OHL Classic of Mayakoba, the final stop before the holiday break, Marino injured his left leg after jumping onto a sandbar from his boat. He fractured the fibula and tore ligaments in his ankle. Note that this is the same leg on which he had surgery in his knee in October of 2011. He also received a stem call injection to aid in the healing process. Only recently was he comfortable in walking 18 holes in competition. "I feel really good," Marino said. "I think I'm ready." Suddenly, his opening 72 at Harbour Town looks a little better.
