David Lynn is the last man into the field at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Once the RBC Canadian Open was plugged in -- champion Brandt Snedeker was already exempt into the field at Firestone -- the top 50 in the updated Official World Golf Ranking would qualify for the no-cut event in Akron, Ohio. Lynn didn't play anywhere this week, but he gained the necessary points to climb one spot to 50th and earn a berth. Assuming he accepts the invite, it will be his first tournament in the United States since THE PLAYERS. The field is now full at 74 (including Hunter Mahan).

World No. 37 Bill Haas double bogeyed his final hole en route to a 2-over-par 36-36=72 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship and at 1-under 209, missed the secondary 54-hole cut by one shot.

A total of 85 pros made the 36-hole cut of 3-under 147 so a second cut of low 70 and ties took place after 54 holes (2-under 208). Haas, a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, opened in 73-64, one of 20 players to make the cut on the number, and similar to Day 1, had little success. On nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, he outbalanced two birdies with two bogey-5s (both 3-jacks) and the closing double bogey-6. The Wake Forest alum, who had finished in the top 25 in his last five visits, three of those top 10s, posted a dismal 2.091 putts per GIR and took 31 total putts. Others without a Sunday tee time: 209- Gonzalo Fdez-Castano; Aaron Baddeley; Stuart Appleby; Dru Love .. 210- Ken Duke; Zac Blair; Padraig Harrington .. 211- Seamus Power; Jonathan Randolph .. 212- Brett Stegmaier.

Top-ranked and World No. 9 Henrik Stenson rallied for a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to post 16-under 194, up two places on the day and good for the 54-hole lead by one over three players.

This is the 41-year-old's fifth career 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 170th career start, previously 2-for-4 and never finishing worse than solo 2nd. It's his first 54-hole lead/co-lead of the season in 13 starts, and first since the 2016 Open Championship, which he went on to win with a stellar 8-under 63, his most recent of five TOUR titles. The Orlando resident found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.535 SG: Approach and 1.927 SG: Tee-to-Green. He was even-par thru 12 holes, canceling four birdies at Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 6 with bogey-5s at 4 and 11, and double-bogey-5 at 7, but then played his final six in 4-under, circling a hat-trick at 13-15 and an eighth birdie of the day at 17. The Swede's split featured two from between 17 and 32 feet, posting 1.533 putts per GIR and 1.320 SG: Putting. He's currently No. 1 in putts per GIR with a cumulative 1.596.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 207 Richy Werenski twirled a career-low bogey-free 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 13-under 197, up 15 places on the live leaderboard to T4 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Werenski is T6, three short of leader Henrik Stenson.

The Georgia Tech alum got in the field off his top-10 finish at the opposite-field Barracuda two weeks ago. He was the second round leader, his first lead/co-lead after any round, eventually posting a career-best P2, losing to Chris Stroud on the second hole of sudden death. After opening in 67-66, the 25-year-old began T19 on 7-under, six back of 36-hole co-leaders Ryan Armour and Webb Simpson. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, gaining 3.208 strokes approaching-the-green and 4.561 tee-to-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident carded four birdies at Nos. 1, 12, 13 and 15, all from inside of eight feet, adding eagle-3 at 5 from 5'6". He registered 1.733 putts per GIR and 0.809 SG: Putting, taking 29 total putts. Werenski's previous best on TOUR in 69 career laps was 5-under 65 at the Sony Open/R1 back in January.

Marcel Siem overcame Robert Rock at the 19th hole to earn a semi-final place in the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

The German is thriving on the home support around the Beckenbauer Course at the Bavarian resort and it has seen him overcome a quartet of quality opposition; arguably the toughest route of the four semi-finalists. He’s defeated Julien Quesne, Mikko Ilonen, Thomas Detry and then Rock to set up a Sunday morning clash with Johan Carlsson. Not bad for a man whose matchplay record heading into the tournament was 0-2. For most of the match he was behind, losing 3, 11 and 14 to birdies, 7 and 11 to pars, only claiming back 9 and 12 with his own par breakers. But back-to-back red numbers at 15 and 16 drew the match level and he holed a 5’0" putt at the first extra hole before celebrating with a trademark roar. He’s guaranteed a first top five since May 2016 and will hunt a first win since the 2014 BMW Masters.

Defending champion Anthony Wall stretched his unbeaten run of games to nine with a 5-and-4 dismantling of Jamie Donaldson in the last 16 of the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

New course, same format is proving a nice equation for the veteran Englishman, who beat Alex Noren in last year’s final in Scotland. On the Beckenbauer Course of this week’s Bavarian venue he was never troubled by the Welshman. Wall played well, but Donaldson gave him a head start by failing to break par once on the front nine. Wall made birdie at 3 and 6 to win holes, but Donaldson lost 4 and 7 to bogey-4s. The English golfer then ticked 12 and 14 to end the match. He faces Johan Carlsson in the quarter final, the Swede closed out his 4-and-2 defeat of Marcus Fraser with three straight birdies as he played 16 holes in roughly 6-under. Wall was about 4-under through his 14 in comparison.

Wade Ormsby smoothed a sensational 6-under-par 66 to hit the top of the third round leaderboard on 10-under 206 in the Fiji International at Nadarola Bay GC, one clear of fellow Australian Jason Norris.

For seven holes 37-year-old Ormsby was becalmed on the beachside course, notching six pars and a bogey at No. 5. But he caught fire around the turn, ticking 8, 9, 10 and 11. He was still stuck in the pack at that stage, but pressed on with more red at 13, 15 and 17 to edge closer to the long time leader Norris who gave up a final round edge with triple bogey-7 at the 16th. "I didn't think I would be in that position after seven holes," Ormsby admitted after the round. "I was getting a bit frustrated, but then the putter started to get a bit hot so I started to move in the right direction." Making his 254th start on the European Tour, Ormsby is still chasing a first title. His best was T2 in the 2006 New Zealand Open and he is a winner on the Asian Tour.

World No. 65 Byeong Hun An labored to a 3-over-par 34-39=73 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship and at 4-over 71-73=144, missed the cut by seven shots.

A total of 85 pros from a field of 156 pros made the cut of 3-under 137 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. An, a pre-tourney 33/1 outright, was the highest up the bookmaker's food chain to depart early. He opened with a three-birdie four-bogey 71 and got worse on Day 2, outbalancing one eagle-3 and two birdies, with three bogeys and back-to-back double bogey-6s at 13 and 14. The first-time member though not a rookie will qualify for his first FedExCup Playoffs however, entering the week 96th in the FEC standings and projected at 94th. Other notable early exits include: 138- Scott Brown; Grayson Murray; Kevin Tway; Kyle Stanley .. 139- Chris Stroud; Luke Donald; Graeme McDowell .. 140- Nick Watney, Daniel Summerhays; Hao Tong Li; Brandon Hagy .. 141- Emiliano Grillo; Danny Lee .. 143- Ryan Palmer; James Hahn.

Past champ and World No. 59 Webb Simpson twirled a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 13-under 127, up two spots to T1, matching the 36-hole lead of Ryan Armour.

Play is still in progress but no one is going to catch the leaders. This will be Simpson's second 36-hole lead/co-lead of the season in 24 starts. He was a 36-hole co-leader seven starts ago at the DEAN & DELUCA (68-66), eventually finishing solo 5th with 67-71. The 32-year-old hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.397 SG: Off-the-Tee though -0.431 around-the-green. He squared back-to-back bogey-5s at Nos. 8 and 9 (failed scrambles), camouflaged by eight circles at 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 12, 14 and 15. The North Carolinian's split featured three from between 12 and 20 feet, recording 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.925 SG: Putting. Overall, this is his ninth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 232 career starts, previously 1-for-8 converting (2013 Shriners).

Ryan Armour put on a ball-striking clinic en route to a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-30=61, signing for a career-low score en route to the clubhouse co-lead alongside Webb Simpson with a two-day tally of 13-under 127. UPDATE: This is Armour's first career lead/co-lead after any round.

The 41-year-old Web.com Tour grad entered the week ranked 187th in the FedExCup race. He's in need of a monster finish to crack the Playoffs and ensure he retains his TOUR card. So far, so good, as he's circled 14 birdies over two rounds while swallowing just one bogey. It was all about the ball-striking today as he gained 4.491 strokes approaching-the-green, landing 15 of his approach shots inside 25 feet, with the longest landing just 32'9" from the pin. Playing in his 103rd career PGA TOUR event, Armour is still searching for his first win. Armour is also searching for his first top 25 of the season. His previous low round on TOUR was a 7-under 63 in R2 of the 2008 Greater Milwaukee Open.

Derek Fathauer has withdrawn from the Wyndham Championship. He was 3-over thru 32 holes at the time of WD, and did not cite an injury.

Fathauer started his week with a 2-over 72 on Thursday. He returned to Sedgefield Country Club in need of a 5-under 65 to have a chance at playing the weekend. Three bogeys in the opening eight holes didn't help his case. His last measured strokes came at the par-5 15th where he found himself 11'3" after his third shot, but missed the next two putts before calling it quits. That included a miss from 3'10", his second missed putt from inside four feet on the day. Entering the week at 110th in the FedExCup standings, Fathauer is safely going to retain his TOUR card, and will have a spot reserved in next week's NORTHERN TRUST, if he's up to the task.
Aug 18 - 2:24 PM

Prior to his round two tee time, Bryce Molder withdrew from the Wyndham Championship, putting an end to his 2016-17 PGA TOUR season. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Molder traded three birdies with a five pack of bogeys on day one. He lost 4.135 strokes off-the-tee as he split just five (of 14) fairways while hitting nine of his drives inside the 270-yard mark. The Georgia Tech product would have needed at least a 5-under 65 to have a chance to play the weekend. He would have needed a magical three rounds to vault up to a notable FedExCup number, as he entered the week 186th in the FEC race. Even with a WD, he is projected inside the top 200, which will give him a crack at the Web.com Tour Finals, if this WD wasn't due to a serious injury.
