Woody Austin spun a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Sanderson Farms Championship, then bested Cameron Beckman and Daniel Summerhays in a playoff to win his fourth PGA TOUR title at 20-under 268.

Austin had a chance to win it outright if he could birdie the par-5 18th, but he was unable to do so. His round at Annandale GC featured four birdies and an eagle to just one bogey. The veteran Presidents Cup member has only played three times on the PGA TOUR in 2013 prior to this week, missing the cut in every attempt. At 49 years o age, one could assume he has been counting the days until he could tee it up on the Champions Tour, but a fourth PGA TOUR title could make that decision a little cloudy. With this victory he earns a spot into the field at the PGA Championship but he's not yet eligible for the FedExCup Playoffs because the 300 points he pockets aren't enough to crack the top-125 bubble. At the conclusion of the weekend, Austin ranks 130th.

The opening round of the CIMB Classic was suspended at 1:16 p.m. local time (1:16 a.m. ET) due to the threat of inclement weather. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 3:30 p.m.

Lightning is encroaching on Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club as the atmosphere gets juicy with the afternoon heating. Dangerous conditions are in the forecast all week, so this is not unexpected. Fifty golfers were stranded, but all have completed at least 12 holes. Matt Jones has three to play. He turned in 3-over-par 39 and opened his inward side with four pars, but then penciled in a 10 at the par-5 fifth hole. At 8-over, he's currently 76th of the 77 still active.

Graham DeLaet withdrew from the CIMB Classic during his opening round due to a back injury.

The Canadian bogeyed the par-4 first hole and called it quits. It's his second mid-tournament WD in 107 PGA TOUR starts, but both occurred in his last seven (flu; 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational). If he's able, he'll try again at next week's WGC-HSBC Champions.

Bud Cauley is hoping to return to competition at the Puerto Rico Open on March 5-8.

Assuming his rehab from surgery for a torn labrum on his left shoulder (Sept. 12) goes smoothly, he's going to start hitting full shots in February. Cauley opened this season at the top of the Web.com Tour Finals category, but he won't be there come March. Two reshuffles will occur before then, so he'll be buried. He's probably snag a couple of sponsor exemptions for tournaments where his number won't qualify on merit, and he's certain to get a medical extension is he eventually needs it, but if he struggles early, he won't necessarily be eager to continue playing and burning up starts on a medical for 2015-16. That time will pass, so it's good to just know when we hope to see him again inside the ropes.

Overnight co-leader Will MacKenzie closed out The McGladrey Classic with a 2-under-par 33-35=68 to post 14-under 266 and join the playoff to determine the champion.

Robert Streb and Brendon de Jonge finished before him, but only MacKenzie has won a PGA TOUR event before, twice in fact. He hit 17 greens in regulation and converted three birdies today, the longest from 15-and-a-half feet at the par-4 eighth hole. He couldn't avoid a miscue, however, three-putting from just inside 80 feet at the par-4 16th. Regardless of what happens in the playoff, MacKenzie will procure his first top 25 since late March. Golf Channel's Gary Koch said during today's telecast that MacKenzie sat back and enjoyed his early-season success in 2013-14. It seems that the realization has paid dividends, especially for gamers that remained faithful entering the new season. PLAYOFF UPDATE: MacKenzie missed the fairway at the par-4 18th hole and found a greenside bunker on approach. His escape was below average in that he was still away at 32'7". A long par try missed on the high side. The other two parred to eliminate MacKenzie.

Brendon de Jonge defied his reputation in the final round of The McGladrey Classic with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 to reach 14-under 266 and sit on a share of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

de Jonge should be proud of himself today. He's often the first to expect to fade when in contention on Sunday, but he opened birdie-birdie-birdie at Seaside to shake away the demons. The third birdie of that run dropped in from 19'11" at the par-3 third hole. He added birdies from 12'4" and 40'9" at Nos. 10 and 12, respectively, before parring the last six. de Jonge dealt with injury during the 2013-14 season and hadn't finished inside the top 30 in his last 10 starts, so go ahead and make a note that he's, indeed, a horse for this week's host track. PLAYOFF UPDATE: After a textbook par at the par-4 18th hole to extend the playoff, he landed his tee ball safely and pin-high on the green at the par-3 17th, albeit some distance from the cup. After watching eventual champ Robert Streb cover the flag stick, de Jonge's run at birdie burned the right edge. He settled for his second runner-up finish in 213 PGA TOUR starts, but this was his first playoff.

Thanks to nine birdies en route to a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his final round of The McGladrey Classic, Robert Streb will sit and wait to see if his 14-under 266 will hold up or at least get him into a playoff. PLAYOFF UPDATE: After a standard-issue par at the par-4 18th hole to eliminate Will MacKenzie, Streb flushed his tee ball at the par-3 17th and tapped in the straight putt from close range to defeat Brendon de Jonge.

Prior to the playoff, Streb hit 14 greens in regulation at Seaside today. Four of his birdies ran at least 10 feet, the highlight dropping from 33'3" at the par-3 17th. He also poured in a par save from 10'9" at 10, but he left a birdie try from just outside 21 feet at the par-4 18th in the jaws. He played in the 10th-to-last pairing. Incidentally, Tommy Gainey came out of the 16th-to-last twosome and won the McGladrey by one in 2012. Streb is the second consecutive first-time winner, doing so in his 49th PGA TOUR start. Today's breakthrough exempts him into the Masters, WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and PGA Championship.

David Toms enjoyed a 5-under-par 31-34=65 for his final round of The McGladrey Classic.

If Sea Island Resort has horses, there's probably one named after the Louisiana native. He's played in all five editions of the McGladrey and has a pair of top threes to show for it. He added to his list of accomplishments this week, but it was a rough going early. Toms went 0-for-10 in birdie chances in the opening round, but regrouped for a five-birdie 66 to make the cut. A bogey-free 67 on Saturday assured safety from the 54-hole cut, but he really turned on the jets today. Despite hitting only 12 greens in regulation, Toms squared one bogey and buried six birdies, four of which ranging 22-34 feet. He also holed out for birdie from off the front of the green 12 yards away at the par-5 15th. He even poured in a par save from 10'1" at the par-3 12th. At 9-under 271, the 47-year-old is the outright 72-hole clubhouse leader. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the day measured 4.570.

Koumei Oda hung on to win the Bridgestone Open by one stroke over Hiroyuki Fujita.

Oda took a three-shot margin over Azuma Yano into today's finale at Sodegaura Country Club in Chiba, and then closed with a 3-under-par 34-34=68. The eventual champ birdied Nos. 15 and 16, but bogeyed the par-3 17th. It was a birdie-4 at the last that clinched his eighth title on the Japan Golf Tour. Yano drifted into a four-way T15 with a Sunday 71. Fujita turned in the round of the day with a 7-under 33-31=64 that featured eight birdies to challenge his fellow countryman. One of the spoils for the 36-year-old champ is a tee time at the 2015 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational. Oda has never played in a WGC on U.S. soil. He and Fujita now sit a respective 1-2 on the money list.

With a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his final round of the ISPS HANDA Perth International, Thorbjørn recorded a three-stroke victory over Victor Dubuisson.

The 24-year-old Dane co-led the tournament with Austrlian John Wade after a bogey-free, 8-under 64 in the opening round. Olesen then grabbed the outright lead at the midpoint with a 69 and retained sole possession entering today's finale with a third-round 67. He posted 17-under 271 to secure his second title on the European Tour (2012 Sicilian Open). It's a welcome validation after a forgettable first year on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14. Today's win exempts him into the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in two weeks.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew from the Bridgestone Open before his third round due to an upset stomach.

Loosely translating the Japanese-language edition of JGTO.org, Snedeker's explanation fills in the blank that wasn't chased by mainstream media since his WD 24 hours ago. He added that he needs to rest while offering an apology to tournament organizers that paved the way for his inclusion in one of the Japan Golf Tour's cornerstone events. Assuming he's ready to go, we'll see him again at the WGC-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6.

Australia's Antonio Murdaca polished off his title at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 to post 13-under 275, good for a seven-stroke margin over runner-up Horikawa Mikumu of Japan.

The 19-year-old champ opened with respective rounds of 69, 68 and 67 at The Royal Melbourne Golf Club in his home country. He arrived at the tournament sitting 168th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. He's also the first Aussie to win this tournament. One of its rewards is a berth into the Masters, but he must remain an amateur to compete in the major. Guan Tianlang, who won the Asia-Pacific Amateur in 2012 and made the cut in the 2013 Masters despite being assessed a penalty for slow play, finished 11 strokes back of Murdaca in a three-way share of fifth place.
