The horn sounded for the second time during the third round of THE PLAYERS at 7:48 p.m. ET, this time due to darkness.

Among those stranded on the course is Lee Westwood. He went through the first 36 holes without a blemish, but made a double-bogey six on the opening hole after swinging and missing on his second shot from a native area. On the miss, he appeared to hurt his hand and confirmed to NBC on-course reporters that he was in some pain. Perhaps the break in the action to rest his hand is what he needs, as he is 3-over-par through 15 holes in his round. Everyone is chasing David Lingmerth. The rookie is 12-under through 17 holes and two clear of Tiger Woods, Sergio Garcia and Henrik Stenson. It was announced at the end of the live NBC telecast that the third round will resume at 7 a.m.

In his press conference today for the Quicken Loans National, Billy Hurley III announced that the whereabouts of his father, Willard, are unknown.

The following is an excerpt courtesy of USATODAY.com. Hurley III said, "Last Sunday, nine days ago, my dad took some clothes, he took some cash, he got in his truck and drove away and no one has heard from him since. So he’s been gone about nine days, I guess. No one really knows why. It’s complete speculation as to why he left. He’s been married to my mom for 30-plus years. You know, they still live in the house that I grew up in in Leesburg and I’m just hoping that there’s a story that maybe he goes to PGATOUR.com to check my tee time or check my score and sees this and understands that dad, we love you and we want you to come home." Hurley III is scheduled to go off the 10th tee at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club at 7:37 a.m. ET. He's outside the top 130 in both FedExCup points and earnings, so the timing of this emotional turmoil is terrible as it concerns his objective to retain status on the PGA TOUR, but he's still planning on competing.

Tuesday's surgery is expected to remedy complications for which he took DHEA, which is on the banned list. "Right now, my health is my No. 1 priority," he said.

Patrick Rodgers has crashed the field of this week's Quicken Loans National.

Rodgers was given a sponsor exemption to compete. It'll be the 15th start of the season for the PGA TOUR rookie with Special Temporary Membership. He'd rank 122nd in the FedExCup standings among members. He's also 17th on the Web.com Tour money list. If he finishes inside the top 125 with non-member FedExCup points on the PGA TOUR and inside the top 25 in earnings on the Web.com Tour, Rodgers will be fully exempt via the format on the PGA TOUR next season and one less card will be available at the Web.com Tour Finals. If he achieves the double, he'll be the first since the new qualifying process was created. It's also relevant to add that all golfers who are already fully exempt for the following season on the PGA TOUR are no longer allowed to participate in the Web.com Tour Finals.

Overnight leader David Hearn settled for an even-par 35-37=72 in the finale of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude at 15-under 273, good for solo third and two shots back of champion Jason Day.

Hearn began his final round at 15-under and a two-stroke advantage over Day and playing partner Bubba Watson. Looking to become the first Canadian to win the RBC in 61 years (Pat Fletcher/1954), he opened birdie-birdie despite wildly missing his first two fairways. The storybook beginning ended abruptly with bogey on the third after missing the fairway for a third consecutive hole. After pars on Nos. 4-6, Hearn lost the lead (to Day) after squaring his second bogey on seven. The 36-year-old had three legit chances to respond on Nos. 8, 10 and 11, each from inside 15 feet, but missed them all. He exchanged one last birdie (at 13) with a third bogey at 12 to play his last seven holes in even, opening the door for Day. Hearn landed just seven (of 14) fairways, hit 12 greens in regulation, and after leading the field in strokes gained: putting thru three rounds, ended with a -0.705 on Sunday. His consolation is a career-best finish in 13 Canadian Opens, brushing aside a T20 in 2006.

RBC Ambassador Jason Day hung up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude his third appearance in the tournament at 17-under 271, good for a one-shot victory over Bubba Watson.

Day began his final frame at 13-under and two shots back of 54-hole leader David Hearn. After birdie at the par-5 second, a missed birdie on the third from 5'1", and a conversion on the fifth from 8'4", the Australian pulled to within one of Hearn. Day circled another on seven from 7'8", pushing his total to 16-under and the outright lead. It was short-lived, however, as he squared consecutive bogeys at eight and nine. After six consecutive pars on Nos. 10-15, the 27-year-old tied the lead with birdie at 16 and took sole possession with birdie on 17 from outside 11 feet. Day took it to the bank by drilling his sixth birdie of the day on the last from 21'10" for the dramatic birdie-birdie-birdie finish. This is his fourth PGA TOUR title in 165 career events and second of the season on 14 starts (Farmers Insurance Open).

Overnight co-leader Danny Willett closed out the Omega European Masters with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 to post 17-under 263, good for a one-stroke victory over fellow Englishman and overnight co-leader Matt Fitzpatrick.

Willett hit 15 greens in regulation at Crans-sur-Sierre Country Club in Crans Montana, Switzerland, today. His five birdies were outmatched by Fitzpatrick's six, but the younger Brit squared two bogeys en route to what is a career-best finish in his burgeoning European Tour career. Playing alongside each other in today's finale, Willett birdied the par-3 13th, and then both closed birdie-birdie-par-par-par. It's the champ's second victory this season and third in his career. "It was a great day," Willett said. "Matt was snapping at my heels all day, so I’m delighted to get the job done. I kept really calm all day, and just waited for the chances to come. ... But it probably made it a bit easier to be honest, because it meant I could not lose concentration even for a minute. With a bigger lead you can take your foot off the gas a little bit, but today I knew I had to keep attacking and committing fully to shots, and luckily enough it turned out well in the end."

Scott Piercy stalled out to a 1-over-par 36-37=73 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and at 1-under 215 will not be a part of the Sunday festivities in Oakville, Ontario.

The 2012 RBC champ and last week's winner at the Barbasol Championship was one of 20 players to make the cut on the number and share 72nd place. As such, a second cut of low 70 professionals and ties was required after 54 holes. Joining Piercy with early exits: 215--Jon Curran; Blair Hamilton (a); J.B. Holmes; Lucas Glover; Austin Connelly (a) ... 216--Seung-Yul Noh; Ryo Ishikawa ... 217--Ryan Ruffels (a); Jonathan Randolph; Steven Alker ... 218--Marcelo Rozo ... 221--Blayne Barber.

Canadian David Hearn tacked on a 4-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and his 54-hole aggregate of 15-under 201 is good for a two-shot margin over Bubba Watson and Jason Day.

Hearn began the day in a two-way tie for third (11-under) and three shots back. On his round, he found the short grass just six (of 14) times and hit 12 greens in regulation, registering 1.583 putts per GIR, currently No. 1 in that stat thru three rounds. Hearn entered the third round first in strokes gained: putting and at last check remained in that position with a cumulative 9.434. Playing in the penultimate pairing, the Canuck circled birdies at Nos. 2, 7 (from 23'11") and 8 to turn in 3-under. He added par breakers on 15 and 16 before squaring his lone bogey at the 17th. The 36-year-old is playing in his 13th RBC posting a personal-best T20 in 2006. His season-best (25 starts) was T2 at The Greenbrier Classic. Hearn is in the pole position to become the first Canadian to win this tournament since Pat Fletcher in 1954.

Camilo Villegas crafted a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the RBC Canadian Open and is the 54-hole clubhouse leader at 11-under 205.

Villegas began Moving Day at 6-under (T22) and eights shots back of 36-hole leader Chad Campbell. On his round, he circled five birdies to overshadow two bogeys and added an eagle-3 at the finisher to post the clubhouse mark. The 33-year-old's stats show 10 (of 14) fairways, 14 greens in regulation, and at last check, a cumulative 8.364 in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Villegas' loop of Glen Abbey on Saturday ended in 5-under, and he played the four par 5s in 5-under, circling birdies at Nos. 2, 13, 16 and adding the aforementioned eagle on 18 from just over five feet. His only conversion from outside of six feet came from 24'6" at the par-4 eighth. The Colombian entered the week 138th in the FedExCup standings with a season-best T16 (The Honda Classic) on 20 starts. His career-best at the RBC (10 starts) is T5 in 2006.
Jul 25 - 4:24 PM

Overnight leader Danny Willett had to settle for a 1-over-par 36-35=71 in round three of the Omega European Masters in Switzerland but still has a share of top spot.

Trying to follow up Friday's 62 at Crans-sur-Sierre, Willett looked out of sorts early on and started bogey-birdie-bogey-double bogey to drop back to 9-under. He recovered with birdies at 6 and 9 but gave those shots back again with back-to-back bogeys at 10 and 11. The Englishman had one final trick up his sleeve, however, and eagled the par-5 15th to tie clubhouse leader Matt Fitzpatrick on 12-under 198. The pair are two clear of Frenchman Raphael Jacquelin and three in front of defending champion David Lipsky. Y.E. Yang and fellow Korean Seuk-hyun Baek are now four back after carding matching 4-over 74s. Willett, who finished T6 in last week's Open Championship, will be chasing a third European Tour win on Sunday and his second of this wraparound season. He said after his 71, "It wasn’t the best of days, and the round could’ve got away from me early doors. So it was good to hang tough and finish off the round quite nicely. Hopefully that’s my one bad round out the way."
