Latest Headlines

Louis Oosthuizen has been removed from the published field of this week's Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

His owners feared that this would serve as today's headline. He withdrew prior to his final round of last week's Byron Nelson due to a neck injury. Oosthuizen had planned on teeing it up in four straight culminating with next week's Memorial, so we'll have to remain patient as he deals with his malady.

World No. 99 Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 10-under 270, up four spots to a season-best T3, two swings shy of a 2-man playoff involving Daniel Berger and eventual champ Jordan Spieth.

After opening in 68-67-68, the 26-year-old began T7 on 7-under, five back of Spieth. Playing out of the fifth-to-last twosome, he landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.060 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.468 tee-to-green. The South Korean-born New Zealander squared bogey-6 at six and bogey-5 at 14 (failed scrambles), outpaced by five birdies at Nos. 4, 7-9 and 15, three from between 19 and 34 feet, adding a hole-out 3 at the fourth from 51'5" away. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 2.549 SG: Putting. This is Lee's seventh top 25 of the season in 23 starts and third top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T5 at the Byron Nelson four starts ago. It's his second top 25 at the Travelers in five attempts (second straight), joining T25 on last visit in 2015.

World No. 28 Daniel Berger fashioned a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to match overnight leader Jordan Spieth on 12-under 268, and then lost on the first playoff hole, the par-4 18th, with Spieth holing out for birdie-3 from a green side bunker to claim the trophy.

After kicking off in 68-67-66, the 24-year-old began solo 3rd, three shy. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he found nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, scratching out 0.058 strokes tee-to-green. The Florida State product opened with bogey-5 at the first (failed scramble), but then played his final 17 in blemish-free 4-under, circling Nos. 2, 13, 15 and 17, all from inside of 11 feet. He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 2.023 SG: Putting, buoyed by three par-savers from between seven and 15 feet. In sudden death, both players missed the green in regulation, with Spieth holing out from 61'5" away, and Berger unable to match from the fringe from 49'5". Vying for his second win this season in 18 events, second in his last three starts, the Floridian settles for a second runner-up and drops to 0-2 in extra time. It's his second straight top 5 at the Travelers in two visits, finishing T5 last year after leading by three thru 54 holes and closing with 74.

Making his tournament debut, overnight leader and World No. 6 Jordan Spieth tossed up an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to match Daniel Berger on 12-under 268, and then defeated him on the first playoff hole with a hole-out birdie-3 from a green side bunker at the par-4 18th.

The 23-year-old, the pre-tourney fave outright (8/1), led after each of the first three rounds before Berger erased a 3-shot deficit with 67 out of the penultimate twosome. He claims a 10th TOUR title in 120 career events (112 pro), second this season in 16 starts, joining the AT&T Pro-Am, where he was also the 54-hole leader. The Texas product improves to 4-2 in extra time and 8-for-13 as the 54-hole leader/co-leader, converting eight of his last nine. After opening in 63-69-66, he began with a 1-shot lead over Boo Weekley, three clear of Berger. The Texan conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.716 SG: Tee-to-Green though -1.635 SG: Putting. He cancelled three birdies at Nos. 1, 2, and 15 with bogeys at 4, 12 (3-putt from 51'9") and 14, taking 1.833 putts per GIR and 29 total putts. In sudden death, both players missed the green in regulation, with Spieth providing the final dramatics from 61'5" away.

World No. 49 Charley Hoffman smoothed a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to reach 10-under 270, up eight spots to T2, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and the only blemish-free round of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Hoffman finished in a two-way T3, two shots out of a 2-man playoff involving Jordan Spieth and Daniel Berger.

After opening in 69-67-68, the 40-year-old began T10 on 6-under, six back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth. Playing out of the sixth-to-last twosome, he conjured six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 0.321 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 2.383 around-the-green. The UNLV alum circled four birdies at Nos. 6, 9, 13 and 15, highlighted by a hole-out 4 from a greenside bunker at the par-5 sixth. He posted a commercial 1.818 putts per GIR and 0.330 SG: Putting, needing 27 total putts. This was the California native's 10th top 25 of the season in 22 starts and fifth top 10, second straight after solo 8th at the U.S. Open. If the runner-up holds, it'll be his second this season, joining T2 at Bay Hill (as 54-hole co-leader), and seventh in 328 career events. It's Hoffman's fourth top 25 at the Travelers in eight tries, and third top 10 with a best of T2 in 2012.

World No. 837 Andres Romero played a scalpel-like final 11 holes to win the 2017 BMW International Open at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried, carding a 7-under-par 34-31=65 to total 17-under 271, winning by one from Sergio Garcia, Richard Bland and Thomas Detry.

The Argentine golfer has been in competitive limbo this season, having lost his PGA Tour card and only played this week on a BMW invitation; he repaid the offer in style. That said, through seven holes he was becalmed, notching nothing but pars. However he then made back-to-back birdies and never looked backwards from there on in, first hunting down the leaders with more red at 11, 13, 14 and 15, the latter three from inside 15'0". He needed to make a superb up-and-down to save par on 17 which kept him in a four-way tie for the lead. But a massive drive on 18 helped him find the middle of the par-5 green in two. His first putt came up 8'0" shy, but he drained the birdie effort, had set a target, and celebrated with tearful compatriot players and caddies when it wasn't matched.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 90 Jamie Lovemark labored to a 2-over-par 37-35=72 in the third round of the Travelers Championship and at 2-over 212, will not have a Sunday tee time, missing the secondary cut of 1-over 211 by one shot.

A total of 85 players made the 36-hole cut (even-par 140) so a second cut of low 70 and ties took place after 54 holes. Lovemark opened in even-par 140 (72-68), one of 17 players to make the cut on the number, and outbalanced birdie-3s at holes 14 and 9 with bogeys at 10, 4, 7 and 8 to hit the exits. He checked in at 60th in the FedExCup standings and off three finishes of T27 or better, highlighted by T10 two starts ago at the Memorial. Joining Lovemark on the bench for Sunday: 212- Sebastian Munoz; Julian Etulain; Peter Malnati; Cameron Percy; Sung Kang ... 213- Spencer Levin; K.J. Choi ... 214- Steve Wheatcroft ... 215- Alex Cejka ... 221- Scott Piercy.

World No. 390 Boo Weekley fired a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the third round at the Travelers Championship to post 11-under 199, up two places to solo 2nd, one shy of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

This is the 43-year-old's 297th career event. He's a 3-time winner, most recently at the 2013 Crowne Plaza Invitational (108 starts ago), where he came from one back with 4-under 66 to beat 54-hole leader Matt Kuchar by one. Coincidentally, that was the last time he was this high up the leaderboard thru 54 holes. After opening in 66-68, the Floridian went out in even-par, exchanging bogeys at 5 and 7 with birdies at 1 and 6 (from 23'1"). He stormed home in blemish-free 5-under, circling 11, 13, 15, 17 and 18, four of those from greater than 9'0" with a long of 32'2" at the par-3 11th. Weekley landed 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.068 strokes tee-to-green and 3.261 on-the-green, needing 27 total putts.

First- and second-round leader Jordan Spieth spun a 4-under-par 34-32=66 on Day 3 of the Travelers Championship to reach 12-under 198, good for a one-shot lead over Boo Weekley.

Making his tourney debut, the World No. 6 led by one over two players after opening laps of 63-69. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 0.994 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 2.051 around-the-green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 5.451. The 23-year-old squared three bogeys at Nos. 9, 13 (tee ball in the water) and 14, outpaced by six conventional birdies at 7, 10, 11, 15, 16 and 18, walking off with his long of the day from 20'4", and kicking off with birdie-4 at six from off the green 28'7" away. The Texan, who also leads in SG: Tee-to-Green (cumulative 9.262), posted 1.400 putts per GIR and 1.893 SG: Putting. This is his second 54-hole lead/co-lead this season in 16 starts, winning the AT&T Pro-Am, and his 13th in 120 career events (112 pro), converting seven of the previous 12, seven of last eight (T2, 2016 Masters).

World No. 28 Daniel Berger crafted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole total of 9-under 201, up five places to solo 3rd, three adrift of leader Jordan Spieth, who's topped the leaderboard after each of the first three rounds.

This is the 24-year-old's second appearance after T5 last year, where he was the 54-hole leader by three (66-67-career-best 62), but closed in 4-over 74. It's his 18th start of the season with six prior top 25s and four top 10s, highlighted by his second TOUR win two starts ago at the FedEx St. Jude Classic (as defending champ), where he came from three back with 4-under 66 to win by one. After opening in 68-67, the Florida State product found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 1.129 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 3.493 approaching-the-green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 6.877. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 17, camouflaged by five birdies at Nos. 2, 10, 12, 13 and 18, two from between 17 feet and 26 feet, posting 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.822 SG: Putting.
Jun 24 - 6:28 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 160 C.T. Pan smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-31=64 on Moving Day at the Travelers Championship to post 8-under 202, up 41 spots to T2, good for a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead with David Lingmerth and the low round of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Pan's 64 was the low round and he's in a three-way T4, four back of 54-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

This is the University of Washington alum's second Travelers (T25/2015) and 23rd start of the season. He's recorded just two top 25s so far among eight previous cashes, but both doubled as top 10s, including a career-best T2 at the Farmers in late-January. The 25-year-old entered the week 88th in FedExCup standings and off six missed cuts in his last seven events. After opening in 70-68, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation in R3, gaining 1.372 strokes off-the-tee and 2.829 tee-to-green. The Taiwan native circled six birdies at holes 3, 6, 11-13 and 16, five from inside of 11 feet with a long of 24'4" at the par-3 16th. He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 3.620 SG: Putting, buoyed by two par-savers from between 11 and 13 feet. Pan is bogey-free now for his last 38 holes.

Will it be 410th time lucky for Richard Bland? We'll find out in Sunday's final round at the BMW International Open in Germany after the winless veteran finished day three tied for the lead with Sergio Garcia on 13-under 203 after a 5-under-par 34-33=67, the pair a shot clear of Joakim Lagergren.

There were two big moments for Bland today, both coming on the back nine. At the 11th he played out of water and holed a 20-footer for one of the most unlikely birdies of the season and two holes later at 13 he drained his approach from the fairway for eagle-2. From there he closed with five straight pars. Earlier in his afternoon lap of Golfclub München Eichenried, the 44-year-old, who started the day just one off the lead, bounced back from a bogey at No. 2 with a trio of birdies at 4, 5 and 6. Bland had a number of opportunities to secure his first win in an excellent 2016 campaign but couldn't take any. After a poor 2017, it would be somewhat out of left field if he saw off Masters champ Garcia to secure it here.
