Steven Bowditch managed a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to finish his week tied for second at 11-under 269.

It was noted numerous times on the Golf Channel final-round telecast that Bowditch's wife's family enjoy membership at The Greenbrier. He made himself right at home on The Old White TPC, securing the best finish of his PGA TOUR career in West Virginia this week. He landed 56 GIR for the week, easily ranking inside the top 10 in the field. His previous best was a T9 at Pebble Beach in 2011. It is the second time he's posted a top 10 on the PGA TOUR.

Colin Montgomerie navigated the Pete Dye Course in French Lick, Indiana, to the tune of 8-under-par 72-69-70-69=280, good for a four-stroke victory at the 76th edition of the Senior PGA Championship.

The defending champ slept on a three-stroke lead over Bernhard Langer, and then traded six birdies with three bogeys in the finale. Esteban Toledo finished alone in second place at 4-under 284. Woody Austin took solo third at 3-under 285. Langer closed with 74 for outright sixth place at even-par 288. For the week, Montgomerie totaled 15 birdies and dropped just seven strokes, all with bogeys. He won't turn 52 until June, but this is already his third title in a major on the 50-and-over circuit. Today's exempt him into the PGA Championship on Aug. 13-16. He missed the cut the first time the major was contested at Whistling Straits in 2010, but the Scot survived last year's test at Valhalla and placed T69. Incidentally, because he also won the 2014 U.S. Senior Open, he's already exempt into the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay on June 18-21.

Jordan Spieth painted a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to match the clubhouse lead of Jason Bohn at 11-under 269.

Spieth certainly has a flare for the dramatic, holing his 18'7" birdie putt on the par-4 18th, sending the Sunday gallery into a frenzy. The Dallas native, began the day at 6-under (T10) and five shots back of the lead. On the round he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. Of note, he hit all seven fairways and all nine GIR on his inward half. Spieth's five-birdie set included rolls from 27'1" and 22'8" on Nos. 5 and 6 respectively. His lone blemish came as a three-putt from 48'1" on the par-3 16th. The 21-year-old is looking for his third victory on the season, winning at the Valspar Championship and the Masters.

Jason Bohn twirled a 7-under-par 29-34=63 in today's final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and posts 11-under 269, good for the early clubhouse lead.

Bohn eased into his final frame with a two-putt par on the par-5 first. He went bananas over his next six, circling six consecutive birdies, including rolls of 32'2" on the second, and a 36-footer on the fourth. Those would sandwich a chip-in birdie from five yards left of the target on the par-4 third. His birdie streak would end at No. 8, just missing his attempt from 20'11". The 42-year-old, who began the round seven shots off the pace, squared his lone bogey on No. 15, where he took two shots to get out of a fairway bunker. Bohn's stats on his round read 10 (of 14) fairways, 14 greens in regulation, 3-for-4 in scrambles, and 25 putts.

With a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the final round of the BMW PGA Championship, Byeong-Hun An soared to his first victory on the European Tour and became the first from Asia to win this tournament.

The 23-year-old South Korean posted 21-under 267 to set the tournament record, six strokes clear of co-runners-up Thongchai Jaidee and Miguel Angel Jiménez. An hit 14 greens and needed only 22 putts en route to an eagle and five birdies today. The 3 at the par-5 12th was inches from an albatross. (You can view the shot here.) After sharing the 54-hole lead with Francesco Molinari, who led outright after 18 and 36 holes, the Italian opened the finale with a bogey-5 and drifted into sole possession of fifth place nine swings back after a closing 74. "I'm still really excited and over the moon right now," said the champ. "I wasn't expecting this. I didn't know that a win was this close. It came all of a sudden. I've been playing well all year but I never thought I would win this event." Included in the spoils, An is now exempt into the U.S. Open, The Open Championship and the WGC-Bridgestone.

At even-par 210 (71-68-71), Louis Oosthuizen withdrew prior to today's final round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial due to a neck injury.

This is always the fear with gamers regarding Oosthuizen as he has had a history of reoccurring back and/or neck injuries that have forced withdrawals from tournaments. Some come in the form of mid-tournament WDs, as was the case today. This is his seventh in 91 PGA TOUR starts. Others, where he was in the published field but didn't start, as was the case earlier this year at The Honda Classic. Still others, where he withdraws his commitment to play the event, the latest example coming at the Omega Dubai Desert Classic back in January. If he's able, we'll see him again at this week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Overnight leader Kevin Na conjured up a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and his 11-under 199 is good for a one-stroke lead over Ian Poulter.

Na, who began the day with a two-shot lead, split nine (of 14) fairways and hit just nine greens in regulation, finishing with 25 putts. The 31-year-old scrambled successfully 7-of-9 times (including five of six on his inward half) adding a second square on the card at the par-4 15th. Today's round wasn't necessarily about the three birdies that Na managed (ranging from 6'11" to 16'11" on No. 3). It was more about his par putts (two in excess of six feet) and most importantly his 6'9" bogey "save" that disappeared on the par-4 fifth, minimizing the damage of a penalty stroke off the tee to just one dropped shot.

Fort Worth native John Peterson backed up to a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the third round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial and at 3-over 213 will not be teeing it up on Sunday.

Peterson, who grew up on Colonial Country Club, was one of 15 golfers at T66 after two rounds had been completed, so a second cut of low 70 and ties was required after 54 holes. Joining Peterson on the pine for Sunday: 212--Jarrod Lyle; Harrison Frazar; Steve Wheatcroft; Chad Collins; Patrick Rodgers ... 213--John Peterson ... 216--Kyle Reifers.

Byeong-Hun An tacked on a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to Friday's 64 and is tied for the lead going into the final round of the BMW PGA Championship.

An made seven birdies in all and ended with a pair of par breakers to pull alongside Francesco Molinari at 14-under 202. The duo will head off on their final lap two shots clear of Thongchai Jaidee. An hit 15 greens in regulation (47 out of 54 this week) and split 9 (of 14) fairways. He was 2-for-3 in scrambling and took 27 putts. The young South Korean has posted an impressive six top 15s in his rookie season on the European Tour but hasn't entered a final round higher than T7 or nearer than five shots off the lead. In other words, this is his first legitimate shot at victory.

Boosted by a hole-in-one at the second, Miguel Angel Jiménez carded a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to move into solo fifth at the BMW PGA Championship.

This is becoming routine for the veteran Spaniard. Last week he matched Colin Montgomerie's record of nine by draining his tee shot at the 8th hole in round two of the Open de España. And now he has the European Tour's all-time mark for himself after a 10th ace, three of those coming this season. Jiménez followed his hole-in-one at the 154-yard second with a birdie at three and circled three more par breakers against two bogeys over the rest of his round. At 11-under 206, he's currently four shots behind leader Francesco Molinari.

Tommy Fleetwood holed his second shot at the par-5 4th hole in the third round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Saturday.

That dramatic three-shot leap combined with an eagle-3 at the 12th helped the Englishman card a 7-under 31-34=65 and climb up to third place on 11-under 205. "It was 198 yards, 7 iron," Fleetwood told Sky Sports TV. "It was a perfect shot, exactly where I went to hit it." It goes down as the 92nd albatross on the European Tour and is the third in this event (you can watch it here). He hit 12 (of 14) fairways, found 15 greens in regulation and played the par 5s in 6-under.

Try as he might but David Hearn survived the cut on the number at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hearn impressed with a 66 in the opener but blew up for a birdie-free, 5-over-par 35-40=75 in today's second round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and went an astonishing 0-for-14 in scoring chances on Friday. Still sitting pretty despite one bogey on his first 17 holes, the Canadian rinsed his approach at the par-4 18th. He'd roll another back into the water when a chip failed to clear the bank facing the green. Eventually, Hearn coaxed in a 50-inch putt for quadruple bogey to post 1-over 141. As one of 15 tied for 66th place, a second cut of low 70 and ties will occur at the conclusion of 54 holes. With the threat of inclement weather on Saturday, players will go off split tees beginning at 7:00 a.m. CT. The final group is scheduled to begin on No. 1 at 9:10 a.m.
