Dustin Johnson has been removed from the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship, citing an "irritated left wrist," according to PGA TOUR Media on Twitter.

This is a surprise, especially since he tweeted last Friday that he was looking forward to competing. Look for him to attempt to return at next week's PLAYERS. Joe Affrunti also withdrew as an alternate as he will remain committed to this week's Stadion Classic at UGA on the Web.com Tour.

Making his tourney debut, World No. 47 Thomas Pieters hung up a bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of the Genesis Open to post 12-under 272, up 25 places to solo 2nd, seven back of the leader on the course Dustin Johnson and tying the low round of the week.

With a 4-1-0 record at last year's 41st Ryder Cup, the 25-year-old was the top point-getter for either team, accomplishing the feat as a Captain's Pick and Cup rookie. He also came in 4th at the 2016 Rio Games, closing with 6-under 65. The Belgian is a three-time winner on the European Tour, most recently at the 2016 Made In Denmark, and was making his seventh career start on the PGA TOUR. After opening in 70-68-71, the University of Illinois product began R4 on 4-under (T25), 13 adrift of 54-hole leader Dustin Johnson and eight back of second place. He circled eight birdies on 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 5.607 SG: Putting. Pieters' previous-best round was 66 and his previous-best finish was T14, both at the 2017 WGC-HSBC.

Second-round leader and World No. 3 Dustin Johnson painted a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to post 17-under 196, good for a 5-shot lead over TOUR rookie Wesley Bryan, who shot 63.

After opening in twin 66s, the 32-year-old led by one over Pat Perez, who shot 74, and Cameron Tringale, who shot 71. He'll play the final round with both again however, as there is no re-pairing taking place in an effort to get done on Sunday. The South Carolinian, blemish-free over his last 41 holes, didn't get any of his third frame completed on Saturday (darkness), so he toured all 18 on Sunday morning. Johnson mustered six (of 14) fairways but pelted 15 greens in regulation, circling seven birdies, highlighted by a trip-birdie finish, with all seven dropping from inside of 13 feet. He was a 54-hole leader/co-leader twice last season, converting at the BWM Championship and finishing T6 at the TOUR Championship.

World No. 53 Kevin Na styled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open for a 54-hole tally of 10-under 203, up four spots on the live leaderboard to solo 3rd with third- and final-round play in progress.

This is the 33-year-old's 14th appearance with two top 10s, including a best of solo 3rd in 2011. After opening in 67-69, he began R3 in a four-way T7 on 6-under, four adrift of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson. The Las Vegas resident had just teed off on Saturday when play was suspended, so he played all 18 holes on Sunday morning. He circled an eagle-3 at the first (from 8'1") and birdies at 11 (23'0") and 16 (12'10") on seven (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting a pedestrian 1.800 putts per GIR but a tidy 3.185 SG: Putting. Na's lone victory in 332 prior career starts remains the 2011 Shriners.

Making his tourney debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 141 Wesley Bryan enjoyed a career-low 8-under-par 33-30=63 in the two-day third round of the Genesis Open to post 12-under 201, up 18 spots to T2 and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With third-round play completed, Bryan is in solo 2nd, five back of leader Dustin Johnson, who shot 64.

Second-round leader Dustin Johnson, the reigning PGA TOUR Player of the Year, is the leader on the course at 14-under with five holes to play. Bryan, the 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year, began the third round T20 on 4-under (69-69), six back of Johnson. He was 2-under thru four holes (on Saturday) when play was suspended and returned Sunday morning to finish off his first half with birdie-2 at 6 and bogey-5 at eight. The 26-year-old drove the par-4 10th, dropping eagle from 4'1", and then circled birdies at 11, 14 (from 25'8"), 16 and 17 (26'7") to post the low round of the week thus far. This is his 13th career TOUR start, ninth as a member, and the 63 eclipses a previous-best 64 in R2 of the 2016 John Deere, where he posted his lone top 10 with T8.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 12 Justin Rose navigated the two-day third round of the Genesis Open in 6-under-par 30-35=65 for a 54-hole total of 8-under 205, up 34 places to T6 with play still in progress.

After opening in 69-71, the 36-year-old began R3 (on Saturday) T40 on 2-under, eight back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson. He kicked off with back-to-back birdies on 10 and 11, from 12 feet and 9'6", respectively, and remained 2-under thru four holes when play was suspended (darkness). The Olympic gold medalist returned on Sunday morning to add birdie-2 at 16 (from 11'4") before squaring consecutive bogeys at 17 and 18 (failed scrambles). He got them both back splashing home eagle-3 at 1 from 42'11" and then circled 6, 8 and 9 from between seven and 27 feet. Rose hit 11 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.364 putts per GIR and 4.969 SG: Putting.

Local resident Brett Rumford completed his dominant week at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth in Australia by beating Phachara Khongwatmai 2&1 in the final to claim his sixth European Tour title.

Playing at his home Lake Karrinyup course, Rumford had dominated the 54-hole stroke play portion of the tournament by finishing five shots clear of the field to secure top seeding for Sunday's match play section. As one of the eight seeds, Rumford had a bye in the first round and then overcame Hideto Tanihara (2&1), Wade Ormsby (2nd shootout hole) and Adam Bland (1 hole) on the way to the final. He started the six-hole championship match against Thai teenager Khongwatmai by putting his approach to three feet to earn a concession but lost the second after a poor drive. Rumford holed from 10 feet at 4 to go 1up and sealed victory with a superb tee-shot to two feet at 5. World No. 274 Rumford, who lost his card last year, will have an exemption until the end of the 2018 season after claiming his first win since the 2013 Volvo China Open. "It's amazing, particularly being a new format, the first winner of that," said the 39-year-old.

The third round of the Genesis Open in Pacific Palisades, California, was suspended at 5:43 pm PST due to darkness, with a scheduled restart at 6:50 am Sunday.

The two-day second round was finally completed at 3:49 pm on Saturday. 71 players (70 pros, one amateur) survived the 36-hole cut and began the third round at 4:10 pm in threesomes off both sets of tees. Open-qualifier and PGA TOUR rookie J.T. Poston is in the penultimate threesome off No. 1 tee following a second-round 2-under-par 31-38=69 (four birdies, two bogeys) on 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation. He did not get his third frame underway on Saturday so he'll start the third round tomorrow morning in a three-way T4 on 7-under 135, two back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson.

World No. 24 Brandt Snedeker pieced together an even-par 33-38=71 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open but at 2-over 73-71=144, missed the 36-hole cut by two shots.

A total of 71 players (70 pros and one amateur) from a field of 143 pros and one amateur made the cut on even-par 142. Snedeker arrived for his seventh visit to Riviera CC off consecutive top-10 finishes, including a season-best solo 4th last week at the AT&T Pro-Am. He's had mixed fortunes at the Genesis however, offsetting a pair of top 20s now with four missed cuts and a 74th-place finish (of 75) on last visit in 2015. For the short week, the 36-year-old outbalanced six birdies with eight bogeys. Other notables with early exits include: 143- Tony Finau; Scott Piercy; Marc Leishman ... 144- Harris English; Ryan Moore ... 145- Billy Horschel ... 147- Francesco Molinari; Brooks Koepka; Kevin Chappell ... 148- Charl Schwartzel; Hideki Matsuyama; Kelly Kraft ... 148- Hudson Swafford.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 248 Cameron Tringale fired a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open, tying the low round of the week and throwing 9-under 133 on the board, up 30 places to T2, one back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson.

The California native and resident improves to 7-for-7 at Riviera CC. He opened with a four-birdie two-bogey 69 and returned Saturday morning to circle seven birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. The 29-year-old gained 5.221 strokes tee-to-green and 2.395 strokes with the flat stick. He kicked off with a 3-birdie train on holes 3-5, 2-putted the par-4 10th for birdie, and went back-to-back with birdie-4 at 11. Tringale saved some of the best for last, dropping a 42-footer from the fringe for birdie at the par-4 15th and then holed out from 82 yards for a walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th.

World No. 66 Pat Perez smoothed a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open to post 9-under 133, up six spots to T2, one back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson, who also shot 66.

The 40-year-old played the entirety of his second round on Saturday -- along with 58 others in the same boat -- and landed seven (of 14) fairways and just nine greens in regulation. He kicked off with a 2-putt birdie-4 at the first and eight pars later, squared 5 at the par-4 ninth for a second lap in a row. The Arizonian came to life on the inward half, circling five birdies at 11, 13, 14, 17 and 18, three conventional from between three and 17 feet, adding a 12-footer from the fringe for birdie-4 at 11 and pitching in for another birdie-4 at 17. All together, it equaled just 22 putts.

World No. 3 Dustin Johnson hung up a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day second round of the Genesis Open to reach the midpoint on 10-under 132, tying the low round of the day thus far with Kyle Stanley and Pat Perez, and assuming the 36-hole clubhouse lead by one over Perez. UPDATE: With play completed, Johnson leads by one over Perez and Cameron Tringale, who shot 64.

After kicking off with 66, the 32-year-old took all of Friday off along with 58 others.

Last season, Johnson led/co-led four times after 36 holes. He won two of those (U.S. Open, BMW Championship); and finished T6 (TOUR Championship) and runner-up at the RBC Canadian Open in the other two.
