Louis Oosthuizen is listed in the published field of next week's Greenbrier Classic.

We last saw the South African at Merion where he withdrew before his second round with a hip injury. That came on the coattails of a neck injury and the birth of his third child. If he can give it a go, it will mark his first appearance at The Old White TPC.

Rory McIlroy steadied a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the final round of The 146th Open, ending his time at Royal Birkdale on 5-under 275, good for a spot inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

It's always fun, but not always productive, to play the what-if game. What if McIlroy didn't start his week with five bogeys in his opening six holes? That's a big if, but if he managed to play those at even par then he'd be winning this event on 10-under. Instead, he he'll settle for a top 5. That may not reach the lofty standards set by McIlroy over his career but it's a great achievement when you consider his form entering the week: MC-T17-MC-MC in his last four worldwide starts. Now that he's flashed a bit of form, McIlroy is sure to be a popular pick when the final major of the year is played at Quail Hollow, a venue where McIlroy has already won twice in his career (2010 and 2015 Wells Fargo Championship).

Marc Leishman blizted Royal Birkdale with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65 during the final round of The 146th Open, flying into a share of fourth place on the live leaderboard on 4-under 276.

The Aussie couldn't find the bottom of the cup on Friday, going birdie-free en route to a 6-over 76. He limped into the weekend, right on the cut line, but has since rattled off nine birdies and an eagle, camouflaging a pair of bogeys. Leishman split just 25 (of 56) fairways on the week but still managed 29 greens in regulation over the weekend. The 33-year-old Aussie would love to have a do-over on the windy second round, but despite the setback he is still in line to post his third top 10 at the Open Championship.

Hao Tong Li set an early target at The 146th Open, closing his week with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-31=63, grabbing a seat in the clubhouse with the early lead on 6-under 274.

The youngster was lurking from off the pace for the first three rounds but went in all-out-attack mode today. In particular, he circled five birdies in his last seven holes, including each of the last four. He swallowed just two bogeys on the back nine, the entire week, playing the homeward nine at 7-under-par. Li really caught fire with the flat stick today as he needed just 25 putts to make his way around Royal Birkdale. The 20-year-old has never shyed away from the winner's circle as he already boasts three wins on the PGA TOUR China circuit and also won the 2016 Volvo China Open on the European Tour. He will now sit in the clubhouse and hope for carnage on the course. Li posted a 68th-place finish at the U.S. Open this season (his major championship debut) so this will easily go in the books as his new personal best in a major and new low round for his PGA TOUR career (66 twice during 2016 WGC-HSBC Champions).

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 280 Rick Lamb sleepwalked to an even-par 36-35=71 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship and at 2-under 211, will not have a Sunday tee time, missing the secondary 54-hole cut by one shot.

A total of 83 players made the 36-hole cut (2-under 140) so a second cut of low 70 and ties took place after 54 holes. Lamb, a pre-tourney 50/1 outright, arrived off a career-best T3 at last week's John Deere. He opened with 67-73, one of 16 players to survive the cut on the number, and headed to the exit after a three-birdie three-bogey effort on eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. Joining the 26-year-old on the bench for Sunday: 211- Craig Barlow; Chris Smith; Andres Gonzales ... 212- Carl Pettersson; Bobby Wyatt; Stuart Appleby; Jonathan Randolph ... 213- Shaun Micheel ... 215- Andrew Loupe ... 216- Rich Berberian, Jr.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 156 Grayson Murray crafted a 7-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship for a 54-hole total of 18-under 195, one adrift of leader Scott Stallings.

After opening in 67-64, the 23-year-old began T2 and now sits solo 2nd. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.020 strokes off-the-tee, No. 1 in SG: OTT with a cumulative 5.075. The Arizona State product squared a lone bogey-4 at eight, overshadowed by eight birdies at Nos. 1, 4, 5, 9, 12, 14, 15 and 17, posting 1.467 putts per GIR and 2.192 SG: Putting. His split included three from between 11 and 16 feet, and seven from greater than seven feet. The North Carolinian is chasing his first TOUR title in his 25th career start (24 pro). He has just one top 10 so far, a T8 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms 38 weeks ago as 36-hole leader (67-65-72-71).

World No. 258 Scott Stalling fired a career-low 11-under-par 29-31=60 on Moving Day at the Barbasol Championship to reach 19-under 194, up nine places to the top of the leaderboard, and matching the tournament and course record with second-round leader Chad Collins and Jhonattan Vegas (2016). UPDATE: With play completed, Stallings leads Grayson Murray by one.

This is the 32-year-old's 179th career TOUR start and if the lead holds up, his third 54-hole lead/co-lead. He was the 54-hole leader at the 2013 Humana Challenge (66-65-63), closing with 2-under 70 for T4, and the 54-hole leader at the 2012 True South Classic, closing in 4-under 68 to win his second (of three) TOUR titles. The Tennessee Tech alum's other two wins at the 2011 Greenbrier and the 2014 Farmers were both come-from-behind. After opening his second Barbasol (MC/2016) in 69-65, he found 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted all 18 greens in regulation, posting 3.222 SG: Approach-the-Green. The Massachusetts native squared a lone bogey-4 at six (3-putt from 61'5"), camouflaged by 10 birdies and eagle-3 at five from 17'9". His birdie split included six from between 10 and 17 feet, recording 4.758 SG: Putting. Stallings' previous-best lap on TOUR was 63 two times, most recently at the above-mentioned 2013 Humana.
Jul 22 - 6:50 PM

Sponsor invite and amateur Sam Burns fired his second straight 66 at the Barbasol Championship, signing for a third-round 5-under-par 31-35 effort and a 54-hole tally of 13-under 200, up four places to T6 with play still in progress.

The 20-year-old, one day shy of his 21st b-day (July 23rd), is making his fourth career TOUR start, first since a MC at last year's U.S. Open. He entered his Barbasol debut a cumulative 38-over-par in those six previous rounds, also MC'ing the 2015 FedEx St. Jude and the 2015 Valero Texas Open. This week, the former LSU golfer (of two years) has kicked off in 68-66-66, including a six-birdie one-bogey showing on Moving Day in Opelika, Alabama. The recent NCAA Division I Jack Nicklaus National Player of the Year Award winner landed nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.571 putts per GIR and 2.316 SG: Tee-to-Green. Scheduled to turn pro this fall after the Walker Cup in September, he entered the week as the 21st-ranked player in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

Matt Kuchar did his best to keep the pressure on Jordan Spieth atop the Open Championship leaderboard Saturday, hoisting up a third-round 4-under-par 31-35=66 to finish 54 holes at 8-under 202, three back from the leader and in solo second.

That's an excellent day's work from the Ryder Cup star and yet he'll feel some pain after a twist on Royal Birkdale's 18. With Kuchar around eight feet away for birdie and Spieth just off the green, the gap looked set to close to one. Instead Spieth holed, Kuchar caught the lip and the margin was three, one more than it had been at start of play. Kuchar poured in seven birdies today (2, 3, 5, 7, 14, 15 and 17) but his score was kept in check by a bogey at 4 and a double at 16 after finding sand off the tee. The 39-year-old piped seven of 14 fairways, hit 12 greens in regulation and took 28 putts. Kuch will get another shot at Spieth in Sunday's final pairing and perhaps will be helped by the fact that it's a further three shots back to those in tied third.
Jul 22 - 2:55 PM

Overnight leader Jordan Spieth kept his foot on the gas with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-34=65, becoming the only golfer in the field to reach double digits under par, entering the final round on 11-under 199, three clear of Matt Kuchar and six clear from the rest of the pack.

On a day with prime scoring conditions, Spieth remained calm and stuck to the game plan. He managed his misses brilliantly, as usual, and converted on all the knee-knocking putts. This is the second blemish-free round recorded by Spieth this week (R1) with just four bogeys to his name thru 54 holes. The Texas Longhorn is in familiar territory, as this will be his 14th time leading/co-leading after 54 holes, the fifth time in a major championship. He's converted 8-of-13 previous 54-hole leads/co-leads, including eight of his last nine. The lone exception being the 2016 Masters. Adding to the comfort level, Spieth will maintain his playing partner, Matt Kuchar, as they both take aim at their first Claret Jug.

Austin Connelly bombarded Royal Birkdale with a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during round three of The 146th Open, heading to the finale inside the top 5 on 5-under 205.

The young Canadian started the day in a share of sixth place. Making his debut in a major championship, a regression wouldn't have shocked anyone. Instead, he opened with a birdie and then one-hopped an eagle on his approach at the par-4 second. The rest is history as he traded two bogeys with a birdie before closing strong with circles at the 17th and 18th. The 20-year-old needed just 24 putts today with just 78 swipes of the flat stick taken for the entire week. Connelly turned pro early on the advice from Jordan Spieth (good friends as they share the same swing coach, Cameron McCormick), and now he has the chance to chase him down on Sunday, or at least make an attempt.
Jul 22 - 2:37 PM

Branden Grace become the first golfer to shoot 62 in a major championship, firing a bogey-free, 8-under-par 29-33=62 during round three of The 146th Open, soaring up to T2 on the live leaderboard while the final five groups had yet to even tee off for the day. Grace sits at 4-under 206 after three days at Royal Birkdale.

Playing on a wet and receptive course without much wind in the air, scoring conditions were ripe today. Grace still deserves all the credit in the world, it's not like this is the first round in a major championship where Mother Nature has opened the door for scoring. The South African took full advantage as he pelted 16 greens today, the same amount as rounds one and two, combined. From there he drained eight birdies. Remarkably this could have gone even lower, as he took 28 swipes with the putter, missing on a quite few from mid-range, ones you might expect to drop during a career round. This beats Grace's best round in a major (64, R3 of the 2015 PGA Championship) and also beats his career-best round on the PGA TOUR (63, R1 of 2016 WGC-HSBC Champions). With four top 5s already on his major championship resume, he will now try to clear his emotional palate and make a Sunday run at his first major title.
