Rafael Cabrera-Bello turned in a 4-under-par 34-33=67 for his opening round of The Open Championship to establish the early clubhouse lead.

The Spaniard split six (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation en route to six birdies, two on each of the par 3s, par 4s and par 5s. He also squared two bogeys at Muirfield today, but he'll happily take the score. It's the first time he's gone sub-70 in 13 rounds in the majors. This is his second appearance in The Open (T81, 2012).

Second-round leader and World No. 184 Andrew Landry, a pre-tourney 150/1 outright, fashioned a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to match top-ranked Jon Rahm on 22-under 268, and then lost on the fourth playoff hole, third playing of the par-4 18th, dropping his record to 0-1 in sudden death and 0-for-1 as 36-hole leader/co-leader. UPDATE: Landry leaps 82 spots to a career-high 102nd in OWGR.

The 30-year-old, making his second appearance (CUT/2016), bags his fourth career top 10 and first runner-up in 26 career events, brushing aside a previous-best T4 at the RSM two starts ago. He improves to 4-for-7 on the season with three top 25s, all doubling as top 10s. After opening in 63-65-70, the Arkansas alum began T2, one back of 54-hole leader and playing competitor Austin Cook. Playing out of the final threesome, he found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, erasing a lone bogey-4 at No. 6 with five circles at 1, 5, 9 and 18, the latter from 11'0" to force extra time. The Texan posted 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.026 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. In extra time, he couldn't convert a couple of birdie chances to win, and then couldn't match Rahm's mid-range birdie-3 at 18 although one inch closer. For the week, Landry had one eagle and 21 birdies against one bogey.

Beginning the day two shots back, first-round leader and World No. 3 Jon Rahm painted a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to match Andrew Landry on 22-under 266, and then won with a mid-range birdie-3 on the fourth playoff hole (third tour of the par-4 18th), improving his record to 1-0 in sudden death and 1-for-3 as 18-hole leader/co-leader. UPDATE: Rahm moves to a career-high 2nd in OWGR and a career-high 2nd in the FedExCup standings.

The 23-year-old, a pre-tourney 8/1 fave outright, bags his second TOUR title in 38 career events (33 pro), joining his come-from-behind win at the 2017 Farmers 21 starts ago. He's now 2-for-2 at the CBC (T34/2017) and 3-for-3 on the season after T36 at the WGC-HSBC and solo 2nd at the Sentry TOC. After kicking off in 62-67-70, the Arizona State alum began T4, two shy of leader Austin Cook. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling five at Nos. 4, 7, 10, 13 and 14, two from between 17 and 19 feet. After missing a 13-footer at the last to win in regulation, and a 9-footer for birdie and the win on the first tour of the 18th, he finally dispatched Landry, who gamely made birdie-3 from 11'0" on the 72nd hole to force extra time.

World No. 305 Martin Piller tacked on a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 20-under 268, dipping one spot to a career-best T3, two swings adrift of a two-man playoff involving Jon Rahm and Andrew Landry.

This was the Texas A&M alum's 55th career TOUR start, clipping a previous best of T4 recorded two times, most recently at the OHL three starts ago. He improves to 4-for-7 on the season with two top 25s, both top 5s, and 2-for-3 at the CBC with two top 25s, one top 10. After kicking off in 64-67-67, the 32-year-old began in a two-way T2 on 18-under, one shy of 54-hole leader Austin Cook. Playing out of the final threesome, he landed nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.783 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.483 on approach. The Dallas native and resident squared three bogeys at holes 6, 9 and 10, outpaced by five circles at 2, 7, 8, 11 and 14, all from inside of 12 feet. He posted 1.636 putts per GIR and 0.523 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. For the week, Piller was T1 in total birdies with 28 versus eight bogeys.

World No. 433 John Huh painted a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 20-under 268, up eight places to T3, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and his first top-10 finish since T9 at the Valspar last March (22 starts ago). UPDATE: With play completed, Huh finished T3, two swings short of a two-man playoff involving Jon Rahm and Andrew Landry.

After opening in 68-69-65, the UC-Northridge product began T11 on 14-under, one shy of the overnight top 10 and five back of 54-hole leader Austin Cook. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.882 strokes on approach and 4.302 tee-to-green. The 27-year-old squared two bogeys at Nos. 1 and 13, offset by six birdies at 7-9, 11, 12 and 17, two from between 16 and 21 feet, adding a hole-out eagle-3 at 16 from 89'11" away. He posted 1.333 putts per GIR and 0.951 SG: putting with 24 total putts. This was the Dallas resident's fourth CBC, third cash, second top 25 (T24/2016) and first top 10. It was his fourth cash of the season in seven starts, second top 25 (T25, OHL) and first top 10.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, three-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 250 Sam Saunders spun an 8-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to conclude on 18-under 270, up 37 places on the live leaderboard to T5, good for the low round of the day thus far and tying the low round of the week on the Stadium Course with Kevin Chappell/R2. UPDATE: With play completed, Saunders' 64 was the low round of the day and finished T8.

The 30-year-old was making his seventh appearance and this is his first cash. It was his sixth start of the season, second top 25 and second straight, and first top 10. After opening in 70-67-69, the Clemson product began on 10-under, five shy of the overnight top 10 and nine adrift of 54-hole leader Austin Cook.

For the week, Saunders totaled 28 birdies, currently No. 1 in that stat, against 10 bogeys.

Rory McIlroy struggled to find third gear in the final round of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship; his 2-under-par 34-36=70 left him T3 on 18-under 270, four back of the winner Tommy Fleetwood.

With birdie at the par-5 second McIlroy briefly joined a four-way tie at the top of the leaderboard, but shortly afterwards Ross Fisher burst clear of the pack and on the back nine Tommy Fleetwood overhauled him. McIlroy meanwhile failed to crank his way through those gears, adding two more front nine birdies (at 4 and 8), but adding a bogey at the sixth. He was wayward from the tee all day and at 14 it forced him to complete a smart scramble from the front of the green to stay within two of the lead; his day in microcosm. Perhaps the rough edges which hadn't been apparent all week, were suddenly snagging in the heat of battle? On 17 his approach came up short in sand, had a horrible lie and he failed to save par; the title bid, already stretched by Fleetwood's back nine blitz, was over despite a 72nd hole birdie. "Overall I'm happy," he said. "I saw some really, really positive signs. My attitude, patience, comfort level were really good all week."

Tommy Fleetwood's back nine blitz overwhelmed a quality field as he successfully defended his Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, pegging a 7-under-par 35-30=65 to total 22-under 266; he finished two swings clear of long-time Sunday leader Ross Fisher and drew the sting of Rory McIlroy's challenge.

What a transformation at Abu Dhabi GC for the Englishman: back-to-back wins having previously limped to 1-for-5. Two behind at the start of Sunday's play red numbers at 2 and 3 made for a good start, but following a dropped shot at No. 6, and Fisher's quick opening, Fleetwood trailed by five after 8 holes, but he accelerated off the turn, with birdie at ten followed by a 12'0" birdie conversion at 12. Off the 13th tee his drive into scrub seemed to put him on the back foot; no bother, with a restricted swing near a tree he hit his second to 8'0" and made it to get within one of Fisher's lead. At the par-3 15th he played safe from the tee only to then drain a 30'0" subtle left-to-righter to join the lead and at the very next hole he repeated the dose to take sole ownership. Within seconds of that move Fisher three-putted the 15th before a chip-and-putt birdie at the final hole confirmed the emotional Fleetwood's back nine 30 and the win.

Making his first start of the calendar year, Hall of Famer and two-time champ Phil Mickelson labored to a 2-over-par 38-36=74 on the Stadium Course and at 4-under 70-68-74=212, missed the cut at the CareerBuilder Challenge by four shots.

A total of 77 players made the scheduled 54-hole cut of 8-under 208. Mickelson, winner here in 2002 and 2004, misses the cut at the CBC for the third time in 15 appearances, first since 1994. At a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, he was tied-highest-up the bookmaker's food chain to exit early, joining 2014 champ Patrick Reed. This was the 47-year-old's third start of season after opening with T3 at the Safeway and T15 at the WGC-HSBC, both back in October. For the week, he totaled 15 birdies against nine bogeys and one double. Other notable early exits include: 209- Chris Kirk; C.T. Pan; Maverick McNealy .. 210 J.J. Spaun; Brandt Snedeker .. 211- two-time champ Bill Haas; Reed .. 212- Brian Stuard; 2006 champ Chad Campbell .. 213- Bubba Watson; Ryan Armour .. 214- Luke List .. 215- Martin Laird; Charles Reither (a) .. 216- Jimmy Walker.

Playing La Quinta CC, three-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 305 Martin Piller orchestrated a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to reach 18-under 198, up two spots into a two-way T2 with fellow Texan Andrew Landry, one shy of 54-hole leader Austin Cook.

After kicking off with 64-67, the 32-year-old began T4 on 13-under, three back of 36-hole leader Landry. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, registering a tidy 1.300 putts per GIR with 23 total putts. The Texas A&M alum squared two bogey-5s at 14 and 16, camouflaged by seven circles at 10, 11, 15, 17 and a turkey at 5-7. This is his 55th career TOUR start and he's chasing a first TOUR title. Overall, Piller has now been in the top 10 thru 54 holes four times in his career and tied a career best with T4 three starts ago at the OHL Classic (T14 thru 54 holes). He's a 6-time winner on the WCT in 151 career events.

Playing the Stadium Course, overnight leader and World No. 184 Andrew Landry tacked on a bogey-free 2-under-par 35-35=70 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 18-under 198, down one place to T2, one back of 54-hole leader and fellow Arkansas alum Austin Cook. UPDATE: Landry was also T2 thru 54 holes (his highest position thru 54 holes) at the 2016 U.S. Open and shot 8-over 78 to finish T15.

After opening in career-low 63 and 65, both rounds bogey-free, the 30-year-old is the only player blemish-free thru 54 holes. He began the day with a one-shot lead over pre-tourney fave Jon Rahm, five clear of Cook, who shot 64 at La Quinta CC. Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Texan found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.711 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.924 around-the-green. He circled two birdies at 17 and 2, both from inside of eight feet, recording 1.818 putts per GIR with 26 total putts. Landry is chasing his first TOUR title in his 26th career start. His career best is T4 at the RSM two starts ago (T6 thru 54 holes).

Making his tournament debut and playing La Quinta CC, World No. 118 and PGA TOUR rookie Austin Cook twirled an 8-under-par 30-34=64 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to reach 19-under 197, up nine places to the top of the leaderboard and good for a one-shot lead over 36-hole leader Andrew Landry and Martin Piller. UPDATE: Cook's 64 was the low round of the day on any course.

This is the 26-year-old's second 54-hole lead/co-lead in 17 career events. He was the 54-hole leader by three at the RSM back in November and shot 3-under 67 to win by four over J.J. Spaun. After opening this week with 63-70, the Arkansas alum began T10 on 11-under, five back of Landry. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 1.385 putts per GIR with a career-low 22 total putts.

He concluded his lap with three up-and-down par saves, finishing on a high note with a curling mid-range par-saver at the par-4 18th.
