David Hearn closed out his second-round, 1-over-par 36-37=73 with birdies on his last three holes to make the cut on the number at the RBC Canadian Open.

Hearn lost in the playoff at the John Deere Classic two weeks ago, so he's been in form, but it's impossible to understand the kind of pressure the small contingent of Canucks feel at this tournament. After Thursday's 70, he hit only 10 greens in regulation today en route to six bogeys. He grinded out five birdies overall, including a run from 12'3" at the fourth hole. However, that wasn't as impressive as conversions from 20'9" and 47 feet to end his round, especially with the opportunity to play the weekend in the balance.

Patrick Reed has shown signs of life recently and now turns his attention to Muirfield Village Golf Club for this week's Memorial Tournament.

Reed went through a mid-season slump that consisted of five straight ShotLink-lasered events where he lost strokes approaching-the-green. That put more stress on his short game but he's now gained strokes approach-the-green in each of his last three starts (+9.2 SG Approach in those three events) and they all went for top 25s. The strong approach play has bled over into his short-game stats, as well, allowing him to stay calm and let his great scrambling skillset go to work. As for his experience at this week's event, he finished T26 during his 2015 debut and returned last year to post a T8. Reed may go slightly under the radar given his quiet season results, but gamers should note his uptick in form and consider pouncing before the iron is hot.

The hottest golfer on the European Tour, Alex Noren, heads home for a celebration of all things Swedish golf during the Nordea Masters at Barseback G&CC.

Now ranked eighth in the world after claiming five wins in his last 22 starts, Noren’s final round 62 to clinch the BMW PGA Championship was nothing less than stunning. To put it into context, he was the first player to emerge from outside the top 20 at the 54-hole stage to win on the European Tour since 2006. He’s well capable of maintaining the form this week and, unlike Henrik Stenson, he has claimed this tournament – twice as it happens, in 2011 and 2015. Those wins came at PGA National Sweden and Bro Hof Slott; his record at Barseback is less impressive and will be the key negative to overcome this week. He shot 81-79 to miss the cut on tournament debut in 2003, failed to break 70 when T52 in 2006, then carded 71-80 to take the weekend off in 2009.

William McGirt rallied over the weekend during last year's Memorial Tournament en route to his maiden victory, returning this week for a chance to defend his crown at Muirfield Village Golf Club.

McGirt opened the 2016 Memorial Tournament with rounds of 70-68 to sit at T22 at the midpoint. From there, he picked up seven birdies and an eagle to offset just one bogey to grab a share of the 54-hole lead. Despite the co-lead, he showed no sign of nerves on Sunday as he pelted 16 greens in regulation en route to a bogey-free 71. On the week he gained 4.65 strokes approach-the-green and another 3.92 strokes on the putting surfaces. With this being his first time attempting to defend a PGA TOUR title, gamers should lower their expectations just a bit. There will be a lot of media responsibilities that will interfere with his usual pre-tournament routine.

World No. 82 Sean O'Hair orchestrated a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to wrap on 9-under 271, up four spots to a season-best T2, one shy of champion Kevin Kisner, who also shot 66.

After kicking off in 67-68-70, the Texan began in a two-way T6 on 5-under, four in arrears of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson, one short of Kisner. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.399 strokes tee-to-green.

He posted 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.254 SG: Putting, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 10.628. This is O'Hair's third top 25 at the DDI in nine tries and first top 10, eclipsing a previous-best T16 in 2011. It's his sixth career runner-up in 323 events, first this season in 15 starts, and a fourth top 10, arriving off T5 at the Byron Nelson.

UPDATE: Rahm bumps three places to a career-high 9th in OWGR.

He had two scoring tries from inside of 15 feet at 16 and 18, but missed. This is the Spaniard's third career runner-up in 26 events (21 pro) and second this season in 14 starts (WGC-Match Play). It's also a 10th top 25 of the season, seventh top 10 and fourth top 3.

The 33-year-old claims his second PGA TOUR title in his 148th career event, joining his 6-shot win at the 2016 RSM Classic 39 starts ago where he was the 54-hole leader. He wins the DDI in his fourth try and is a third straight top 10 (T10/2016, T5/2015). The South Carolinian records a ninth top 25 of the season in 16 starts and fifth top 10, brushing aside a T2 at Bay Hill (as 54-hole co-leader) and P2 at the Zurich, teamed with Scott Brown. After kicking off in 67-67-70, the Georgia alum began T4 on 6-under, three shy of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he found eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.697 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.956 SG: Putting.

The Texan, who arrived off back-to-back missed cuts, conjured six (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation for 3.341 SG: Tee-to-Green and 4.651 SG: Total. This will be his fifth top-15 finish at Colonial CC in five tries, four of those top 10s, and his ninth top 25 and sixth top 10 of the season in 13 starts, five of those top 5s. UPDATE: Spieth records his 11th career runner-up finish in 117 career events (109 pro).

Alex Noren torched the West Course at Wentworth with a course record final round of 10-under-par 31-31=62 to win the BMW PGA Championship by two shots from Francesco Molinari on 11-under 277.

On a day that saw birdies fired right across the Wentworth estate the Swede was in sensational form. He opened with back-to-back red at 1 and 2 before adding another two on the front nine at 4 and 7. A hat-trick of par breakers at 12, 13 and then, from 16’0", 14 brought him smack into contention, another at 16 put him in a four-way tie for the lead and then he hit a wonderful approach to the par-5 18th hole to 4’0" and drained the eagle putt. Shortly after he finished rain started, making life more difficult for those chasing his score, principally Henrik Stenson, Shane Lowry, Andrew Dodt and Branden Grace on 9-under. Each and every one of them struggled thereafter making Noren the first ET winner from outside the top 20 with 18 holes to play since Nathan Green in the 2006 NZ Open.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 115 Danny Lee orchestrated a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 7-under 203, down one place into a two-way T2, two back of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson, who he'll be grouped with in Sunday's final threesome.

After kicking off in 70 and week-low 64, the South Korean-born New Zealander co-led with three others on 6-under. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he bobbed and weaved to an even-par first half, but came home in blemish-free 1-under.

He cancelled out three birdies at 1, 2 and 5 (from 15'6") with bogeys at 3, 7 (3-putt from 24'4") and 8, before walking off with birdie-3 at 18 from 16'1". Lee posted 1.727 putts per GIR and 0.271 SG: Putting. He's vying for a second TOUR title in his 155th career event, joining his maiden victory at the 2015 Greenbrier, where he came from one back with 3-under 67 and won in a 4-man playoff.
May 27 - 7:01 PM

World No. 14 Paul Casey crafted a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach 7-under 203, up three spots to T2, two back of 54-hole leader Webb Simpson, who he'll be grouped with in Sunday's final threesome.

After opening in 69-66, the 39-year-old began in a 4-way T5 on 5-under, one shy of a foursome of overnight leaders. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he went out in birdie-less 1-over, but awoke to come home in 3-under. The Englishman landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.139 strokes tee-to-green. He squared bogeys at eight and 12 (failed scrambles), overshadowed by four birdies at 10, 11, 13 and 18, three from inside of five feet and a walk-off 3 from 23'2". Casey recorded 1.667 putts per GIR though -0.139 SG: Putting. He's chasing his second TOUR title in 211 career events, joining his maiden win at the 2009 Shell Houston Open where he was a 54-hole co-leader and won in a playoff.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 65 Webb Simpson carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational for a 54-hole tally of 9-under 201, good for a 2-shot lead over Paul Casey and Danny Lee, who he'll be grouped with in Sunday's finale.

After kicking off in 68-66, the 31-year-old co-led with three others, his first lead/co-lead after any round since co-leading thru 36 holes here last year. Playing out of the final twosome, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.609 strokes around-the-green but still gaining 3.059 strokes tee-to-green. The Wake Forest alum squared a lone bogey-4 at eight (3-putt from 60'6"), offset by four birdies at 1, 2, 10 and 11, two of those dropping from between 12 and 15 feet. He posted 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.941 SG: Putting. This is Simpson's seventh 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 225th career event, first since T1 at the 2014 Hyundai TOC (finished T3), and is 2-for-6 converting.
