Chris Stroud spun a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of THE PLAYERS, reaching the 54-hole mark at 5-under 211.

It was a pretty calm day for Stroud until he reached the 13th hole. With just two birdies and one bogey on the card, he stood on the tee at the par-3 13th with a 6-iron in hand and 186 yards separating him from the hole. He landed his approach short and right of the pin, then his ball caught a slope and rolled perfectly into the center of the cup. It was the second hole-in-one of the week, joining Michael Thompson's ace at the par-3 eighth in the opening round.

Kevin Kisner connected on his second PGA TOUR victory during last year's Fort Worth Invitational and he returns this week for another crack at Colonial Country Club.

The Georgia Bulldog was positioned at T7-T1-T4 during last year's event before firing a closing 4-under 66 to earn top honors, beating out three others that finished at 9-under 271. Kisner gained a remarkable 4.13 strokes around-the-green over the course of the week including 3.43 strokes in the third round alone, buoyed by a pair of hole outs. It seemed to be a different area of the game carrying him each day as he gained 4.19 strokes putting in R1 and 2.84 strokes on approach in R2. He's a natural fit for this classic design and he left breadcrumbs before his win (T5 in 2015 and T10 in 2016). The only downside is that Kisner arrives in poor form. Before his win last year, Kisner averaged 3 strokes gained tee-to-green in his five lead-up starts. This year he is averaging -1.2 strokes gained tee-to-green, over his last five starts. This looks like a classic case of course history versus form. The poor form makes him a risky option but the course history makes him a high-upside play.

Alex Noren will defend his BMW PGA Championship on the West Course at Wentworth in Virginia Water, England this week.

The brilliant 62 the Swede blasted in last year's final round not only blew the field away (he was T21 and seven swings back after 54 holes) it also smashed his previous best score on the West Course by five. Nor had he played only a few rounds; he'd made 36 circuits before then. He's a consistent 8-for-11 on the track and last year was the third in a row he has featured in the top ten at some point during the week. He makes his European Tour debut this season (WGC and majors excepted) having impressed on the PGA. In fact this calendar year he boasts seven finishes of T21 or better and shot 66-69-77-66 last time out in THE PLAYERS to bounce back from missed cuts in the Masters and Wells Fargo Championship.

World No. 43 Charl Schwartzel has removed his name from the field at this week's Fort Worth Invitational. First alternate David Hearn will take his spot in the field.

Schwartzel has recorded back-to-back top 10s as well as a solo 3rd in the start before that when he was paired with Louis Oosthuizen at the team event. Something clicked for Schwartzel during that Zurich Classic team event as he arrived that week with nothing better than T28 on the season (10 starts). Given his recent run of good play, gamers shouldn't be too concerned about a pre-tournament WD but we will update if any injury news pops up. The South African's recent hot streak has moved him up to 61st in the FedExCup race.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 168 Keith Mitchell hung up a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to finish up on 19-under 265, up four spots to T3, four adrift of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65. UPDATE: Mitchell jumps 34 places to 134th in OWGR and 22 spots to 57th in the FedExCup standings, both career highs

The 63 is the Georgia alum's career low in 63 rounds and rode it to his second career top-3 finish, second this season in 18 starts (2nd, Corales).

This is the SDSU alum's second top-3 finish in 47 events, second this season in 16 starts, joining a solo 2nd at the RSM back in November.

He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 2.125 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 36 Branden Grace fired a 9-under-par 31-31=62 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to conclude on 19-under 265, up eight spots to a season-best T3, four short of overnight co-leader and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65.

The 30-year-old (today, May, 20th) bagged the low round of the day and matches his career low (in 298 rounds), a major-championship-record 62 in R3 at last year's Open at Royal Birkdale (finished T6). He improves to 11-for-11 on the season with six top 25s and two top 10s, bettering a T8 at the Valspar. After opening in 66-68-69, the South African began T11, seven back.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 16 Marc Leishman concocted a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, dipping one place to solo 2nd on 20-under 264, three in arrears of playing competitor and champion Aaron Wise, who shot bogey-free 65, and dropping to 1-for-3 as 54-hole leader/co-leader.

After kicking off in career-low 61, 66-69, the Aussie led outright after Rounds 1 and 2 and co-led with TOUR rookie Wise after R3. Playing out of the final threesome, he hit 13 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing strokes on approach and around-the-green and ekeing out a 0.085 on-the-green, still finishing No. 1 in SG: Putting with a cumulative 8.902. The 34-year-old squared three bogeys at holes 2 (3-putt from 34'5"), 10 and 15, outpaced by four birdies at 7, 8, 12 (from 14'0") and 16, adding eagle-2 from 12'8" at the drivable fifth. For the week, he totaled three eagles and 19 birdies against five bogeys. Leishman was chasing his fourth TOUR title in 238 events, first since the 2017 BMW Championship, but settles for his sixth runner-up, second this season in 14 starts (P2, CJ CUP).

Making his tournament debut, overnight co-leader and PGA TOUR rookie Aaron Wise tossed up a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson to reach 23-under 261, good for a three-shot win over playing competitor Marc Leishman and his first PGA TOUR title in 26 events. UPDATE: Wise jumps 33 places to 66th in OWGR and 38 spots to 18th in the FedExCup standings, both career highs.

The 21-year-old, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, wins in his 18th start of the season and his first time as a 54-hole leader/co-leader. He hit all 14 fairways and pelted 17 greens in regulation, gaining 2.703 strokes tee-to-green. The South African-born American went out in 5-under, building a two-shot lead at the break, and crossed the finish line with a sixth (and final) birdie at 10 and eight straight pars. For the week, he posted rounds of 65-63-68-65 and tallied one eagle and 25 birdies against four bogeys and ranked No. 1 in SG: Approach (5.991). With the win, the World No. 99 earns a two-year exemption on TOUR and a host of goodies, including an invite to his first Masters in 2019.

Adrian Otaegui claimed a second European Tour title, beating Benjamin Hebert in the final with a 3-under 32 to the Frenchman's 1-under 34 in the Belgian Knockout at Rinkven International GC in Antwerp.

The Spaniard qualified for the weekend in strong style, compiling a 5-under 137 total for T8. In the head-to-head he bettered Erik Van Rooyen by two with 1-under 34, downed Max Kieffer by one with 2-under 34, 3-under 32 squeaked Matthew Southgate by one, 1-under 34 edged Jorge Campillo and 3-under 32 destroyed David Drysdale by four. In the final both players opened with bogey at the first and Hebert responded quickest with birdie at the second. But Otaegui accelerated from the fourth where his drive nearly found water but his approach gave him a kick-in birdie. He drained from 25'0" at the sixth for another tick, added one more at No. 7 and tapped in from 3'0" at the eighth. His previous win was the Paul Lawrie Match Play so he rubber stamped his fondness for mano-a-mano golf and is forecast to move to 15th on the Race to Dubai.

Due to storms in the area, there is a one-hour delay to the start of the final round of the AT&T Byron Nelson. UPDATE: After a delay of four hours, the final round began at 1:23 PM CT.

It's threesomes off split tees already, which is a good thing. The first groups were scheduled at 9:23 AM CT and the final group of co-leaders Marc Leishman and Aaron Wise, along with Matt Jones were scheduled at 11:35 AM. California native Nicholas Lindheim is in the fourth-to-last threesome off No. 1 tee after posting rounds of 66-69-68. He's T11 on 10-under 203, seven back. Playing his second straight season on TOUR, the 32-year-old owns one top 10 in 37 starts, a T7 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms back in October.
May 20 - 10:02 AM

World No. 152 Brian Gay backed up with a 1-over-par 37-35=72 in the third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson, dropping two spots to T5 on 12-under 201, five adrift of 54-hole co-leaders Marc Leishman and Aaron Wise.

Playing out of the final threesome with Leishman and Wise, the Fort Worth native hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.675 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.476 approaching-the-green. He mustered two birdies at holes 1 and 11, the first a two-putt version and the latter a hole out from 39'2" away. The 46-year-old outbalanced those with three bogey-5s at 3, 4 and 18, posting a dismal 2.091 putts per GIR and -2.021 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. He'll play out of the penultimate threesome in Round 4.
