With a 12-foot birdie conversion on the first hole of sudden death, Thomas Björn earned victory at the Omega European Masters.

Fifty-four-hole-leader Craig Lee missed his birdie attempt from about 20 feet to set the stage for the Dane at Crans-sur-Sierre Golf Club in Crans Montana, Switzerland. Björn smoothed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round to catch Lee, who closed in bogey-free, 4-under 35-32=67. Both completed regulation in 20-under 264; Björn swallowed only two bogeys against 22 birdies for the week. His last victory anywhere occurred at this tournament in 2011. Today's title is his 14th on the European Tour.

Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, World No. 13 Paul Casey twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach 16-under 194, good for the low round of the week, a four-shot lead over Russell Henley, and matching his career low (in 743 rounds), realized in R1 of the 2015 Sony Open.

This is the Englishman's fourth 54-hole lead/co-lead in 233 events, first since the 2017 TOUR Championship, where he led by two and finished 5th after 3-over 73. He's previously 1-for-3 converting, shooting even-par 72 at the 2009 Houston Open, eventually winning his first TOUR title in a playoff. The 40-year-old, a playoff loser here in 2015, is chasing his third win, second this season in 25 starts. He came from five back at the Valspar (6-under 65) to win by one (Reed, Woods). After opening in 65-67, the ASU product began T5, two back of leader Brian Harman. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and all 18 greens in regulation, gaining 2.508 strokes approaching and 4.324 tee-to-green. Casey circled six at holes 2, 3, 8, 9, 13 and 18, two from between 11 and 20 feet, adding eagle-2 at the drivable par-4 15th from 23'1". He posted 1.611 putts per GIR and 2.786 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

World No. 94 Jamie Lovemark painted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 on Moving Day at the Travelers Championship to reach 9-under 201, up 26 spots on the live leaderboard to T8, good for the low round in the clubhouse and his season low in 61 rounds. UPDATE: With R3 completed, Lovemark is T11, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Paul Casey, who had the low round with 62.

Making his 19th start of the season, the California native's previous low was 67 five times, most recently in R1 at the Memorial in his most recent start three weeks ago. His best finish at the Travelers in four prior visits is T31 in 2014, which included a R2 63. After opening with 68-69, the Jupiter, Florida, resident began T34 on 3-under, four shy of the overnight top 10. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.304 strokes around and 3.974 tee-to-green. The 30-year-old carded four birdies at holes 3 (from 16'9"), 6, 13 and 18, adding a hole-out eagle-2 at the drivable par-4 15th from 31'5" away. He posted 1.571 putts per GIR and 1.288 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

Martin Kaymer isn't the only German player seeking to thrill the local galleries in the final round of the BMW International Open at Pulheim; Max Kieffer is also part of the six-way tie at the top on 5-under 211 after carding a 1-over-par 35-36-71 in Saturday's third round.

That effort nudged him three spots up the leaderboard and into T1 with Kaymer, Aaron Rai, Scott Hend, Chris Paislay and Lucas Bjerregaard. Intriguingly for the German crowds, Kieffer and Kaymer will play alongside each other in the penultimate two-ball. Kieffer put himself in that position after outpacing three bogeys with four birdies. For the third day running he went birdie-bogey over Nos. 1 and 2 before picking up another shot at 6. On the back nine he started out with four pars before a bogey-birdie-bogey-birdie run from the 14th. This is the first time the 27-year-old has had part of a 54-hole lead on the European Tour so we'll see how well he copes and whether the added angle of it being in front of his own fans is a help or hindrance.

Halfway leader Scott Hend stuttered to a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in round three of the BMW International Open in Germany but ended Saturday still in first place although he has five players alongside him at 5-under 211.

The Aussie's card was a bit of a mess today. It started with a dropped shot out of the gate, contained a bogey-6 at the 7th hole and a double bogey-7 at 13. Another one went at 8. However, Hend was at least able to sprinkle some red too and made back-to-backed circles at 3 and 4 on his front nine and also managed to tick 10 and 16. This wasn't the day Hend wanted as he aimed to turn his one-shot lead into daylight over the field but if this is his difficult day there is still a great chance for the 44-year-old to complete a third European Tour win. He's been in this position four times on the European Tour before, twice going on to lose play-offs at the European Masters (2016 and 2017). He also fell back to T4 at the KLM Open and to T15 at the BMW PGA Championship.

Aaron Rai is having quite a week at the BMW International Open in Germany. After a hole-in-one in yesterday's second round, he finished round three in a tie for the lead on 5-under 211 after compiling a 1-under-par 36-35=71.

It's still a big ask for the young Englishman to go on and claim a first European Tour win as he has five other players alongside him in T1 and they include home hero Martin Kaymer. Rai birdied three of Gut Larchenhof's four par 5s today, those gains coming at 3, 7 and 15. But those were his only red numbers and he also swallowed bogeys at 2 and 9. Eight pars and a birdie on his second nine was a sturdy effort however and he's clearly relishing this week's test. Rai twice had a piece of the 54-hole lead at Challenge Tour level, slumping to T27 at the Slovakia Challenge in 2016 but converting his third-round lead to a victory in last year's Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge.

Chris Paisley was going nowhere in Saturday's third round at the BMW International Open in Germany but, sparked by birdie-3 at 10, hit the afterburners coming home with six red numbers in eight holes to complete a 4-under-par 38-30=68 and leap into a tie for the lead at 5-under 211.

It's a logjam at the top at Gut Larchenhof in Pulheim and Paisley shares T1 with Lucas Bjerregaard, Martin Kaymer, Aaron Rai, Max Kieffer and Scott Hend while Mikko Korhonen and Nico Geyger are a shot back. Paisley just couldn't get anything going at first and actually fell over-par for the tournament after bogeys at 4 and 5. An even par back nine would have left him outside the top 30. Instead, he started it with four straight red numbers at 10, 11, 12 and 13 before adding another pair of par breakers at 15 and 17. He'll play in the final group alongside Bjerreggard Sunday.

With the low round of the day, a 5-under-par 32-35=67, Lucas Bjerregaard surged into a tie for the lead on 5-under 211 after round three of the BMW International Open in Pulheim, Germany.

The Dane has missed the cut on his two previous starts at Gut Larchenhof but he's writing a different script this week. With 18 holes to play he shares first place with Germans Martin Kaymer and Max Kieffer, Aussie Scott Hend and English pair Aaron Rai and Chris Paisley. Bjerregaard made six bogeys over his first two laps and today swallowed a double bogey-6 at 12 along with a square at 14. But, in contrast to his pair of opening 72s, he outpaced those dropped shots with eight red numbers. Those birdies came in a burst on the front nine (4, 5, 7 and 8) and on the odd-numbered holes at 11, 13, 15 and 17 coming home. Bjerregaard owns three top sixes in his last four European Tour starts so, despite the previous poor course form, it's no surprise to see him up there again.

Home hero Martin Kaymer shares top spot after three rounds of the BMW International Open in Germany but he has five players for company at 5-under 211 after compiling a 1-under-par 36-35=71 on a fascinating Saturday afternoon.

Kaymer made a solid start, suffered a wobble in the middle and then came on strong at the finish as he finished the third day level with fellow German Max Kieffer, English duo Chris Paisley and Aaron Rai, Aussie Scott Hend and Denmark's Lucas Bjerregaard. World No. 127 Kaymer started out at Gut Larchenhof with seven pars and a birdie-2 at the 4th hole. All looked good at that point but he swallowed bogeys at 9, 10 and 12 to suggest it was getting away from him. However, the two-time major winner responded to the strong support of the local galleries by splashing circles at 13, 16 and 17 to reignite his challenge. Without a win since the 2014 U.S. Open, this is a great chance to finally add to his stalled tally of 11 European Tour wins.

World No. 11 Patrick Reed, a pre-tourney 16/1 outright, rebounded for a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the Travelers Championship but at 1-under 72-67=139, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 74 players from a field of 156 made the cut of 2-under 138, 22 (T53) on the number. This is Reed's third missed cut at the Travelers in seven tries, first since 2015. It's his fifth MC of the season in 19 starts, first since the Honda 10 individual starts ago, and was tied fifth on TOUR in consecutive cuts made entering the week. The reigning Masters champ, who checked in off a solo 4th at the U.S. Open, ranked T1 in eagles for the short week with two, but T146 in birdies with just three. He was 80th in SG: Off-the-Tee (0.095) and 106th in SG: Putting at (-0.951). Other notable early exits include: 139- Brendan Steele; Luke List; Chez Reavie .. 140- Billy Horschel; Xander Schauffele; Ryan Moore .. 141- 2012 champ Marc Leishman; Chesson Hadley; C.T. Pan .. 145- Webb Simpson; Brandt Snedeker.

World No. 55 Russell Henley smoothed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the Travelers Championship for a 36-hole tally of 9-under 131, up seven places into a three-way T2, one back of leader and fellow Georgia Bulldog Brian Harman. UPDATE: Henley will play out of the penultimate twosome in R3 with Zach Johnson.

This is the 29-year-old's second appearance after T11 in 2016, where he was a 36-hole co-leader (68-65-65-73). He checked in this week off a T25 at the U.S. Open, his second straight top 25 in a major, and a T29 at the Memorial. The South Carolina resident opened with a five-birdie, one-bogey 66 on 16 greens in regulation, and hit all 18 greens on Day 2, the second time he's accomplished that in 148 career events. The last time was at the 2013 Sony in his third career start and pro debut, also in R2, and went on to win by three. Henley gained 3.622 on approach today and is No. 1 in that stat (5.598) as well as GIR at 94.44 percent (34/36). He carded five birdies at holes 1, 3, 4, 10 and 13, two from between 13 and 20 feet, posting 1.778 putts per GIR and 0.939 SG: Putting with 32 total putts.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 54 Zach Johnson fashioned a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Travelers Championship, dipping one spot into a three-way T2 on 9-under 131, one short of leader Brian Harman. UPDATE: Johnson will play out of the penultimate twosome in R3 with Russell Henley.

The 42-year-old hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.088 strokes off-the-tee and 0.443 tee-to-green. He carded two birdies at holes 9 and 13 from 23'2" and 9'0", respectively. The Drake alum nearly had a third birdie at the par-4 third, with his putt from 18'4" coming to rest on the back lip and Johnson taking too long (16 seconds) waiting to see if it would drop. The ball eventually did drop on it's own, but since it took longer than 10 seconds, he had to add one to his score. The Iowa native recorded 1.818 putts per GIR and 2.409 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. His was one of just five bogey-free laps in R2, and he has just one blemish thru 36 holes.
