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.

Lucas Bjerregaard torched Topwin Golf & CC for a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in Saturday's third round and joined halfway leader Felipe Aguilar at the top of the Volvo China Open leaderboard with 18 holes to play.

For the second lap running, the Dane went bogey free and he's dropped just a single shot through his first 54 holes. Bjerregaard gave his round dramatic impetus by holing his second shot for an eagle-2 at the 483-yard par-4 4th hole and went to the turn in 33 after a birdie at 8. He circled further red at 11, 12, 16 and 18 on the back nine to arrive at 16-under 200 and share top spot with Aguilar. The pair are two in front of Alex Noren, Tyrrell Hatton, Hao Tong Li and Niocolas Colsaerts. For the third day running, Bjerregaard hit just 8 (of 14) fairways but so far this week he's missed just seven greens in regulation and is a perfect 7-for-7 in scrambling. The 24-year-old, who has three top fives in his last six starts in China, will be seeking a first European Tour title on Sunday.

The second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was suspended at 7:31 p.m. CT due to darkness and is scheduled to resume at 7:45 a.m. on Saturday.

They were able to get 11-and-half hours of golf in on Friday before the suspension. The entire late-early draw has 36 holes in the books, but all in the other half were stranded when the horn sounded. Of those that didn't get to the finish line, Justin Hicks has 14 holes complete and is even-par on the round and 2-over for the tourney. When play resumes on Saturday, he'll be standing over a 34-footer for birdie on the par-4 15th. The 41-year-old is currently T92 on the leaderboard and two outside the projected cut line and will be fighting to play the final 36 holes for the fourth time in nine starts on the season and for the first time in his third visit to TPC Louisiana.

Michael Kim painted a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-35=66 in the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach the halfway point on 4-under 140, up 94 spots on the live leaderboard to T26 and matching 36-hole co-leader Jamie Lovemark for the low loop in the clubhouse.

Kim is one of 15 rookies among 28 first-timers at the Zurich Classic. He only got three holes of his first round completed on Thursday before play was halted and returned Friday morning to play his final 15 holes in 3-over, including a walk-off double bogey-5 on the par-3 ninth. The 22-year-old took a short break to recoup before the second round got underway and he raced out with four straight birdies, three the conventional way from between 12 and 25 feet and adding a hole-out from 31'11" away to kick-off at the par-4 first. He circled a 43-incher at the par-5 seventh but nine straight pars followed before brushing in an 11-footer at the par-3 17th that completed his scoring.

18-hole co-leader Jhonattan Vegas carved out a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 11-under 133, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Jamie Lovemark.

Before Vegas could post his halfway total, he first had to complete 13 holes of his first round early Friday morning, which he did in 6-under to co-lead with Brian Stuard after 18 holes. He began his second round off No. 10 shortly thereafter, and began with an 8'0" birdie-3, but retreated two with a '7' on the par-5 11th after finding trouble off the tee. That would be the 31-year-old's only blemish on the card, playing his final 16 holes in 4-under and going 6-for-7 in scrambling. He circled birdies on 15, 17, 5 and 7, highlighted by a 21-footer at the par-4 fifth and a 28'2" roll on the par-4 15th.

Jamie Lovemark twirled a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post 11-under 133, good for the low lap and the early 36-hole lead in the clubhouse.

Lovemark only got nine holes of his first round completed on Thursday, and returned Friday to put the finishing touches on a six-birdie one-bogey 67. His second frame began in earnest off No. 1 tee, and he played the same nine holes that he just got done playing to get his first round in the books. The 28-year-old, who's going to collect his first payday in NOLA in his third try, striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation for a second straight loop. He squared a lone bogey on the par-4 sixth (failed scramble) but erased it with seven birdies, three from between 12 and 18 feet with a long of 28'7" at the par-4 fourth.

Brian Davis withdrew from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans following a 2-over-par 37-37=74 in the first round, citing a back injury.

The Englishman only made it 11 holes at last week's Valero Texas Open before withdrawing due to a neck injury, so he actually made progress today. During this week's navigation he split 10 (of 14) fairways but landed just six greens in regulation. With back-to-back WDs on his resume, gamers should steer clear of Davis until he can compete for an entire week. He moves to 1-for-8 on the season as he plays out of the 40th slot on the Web.com Tour graduate reshuffle.

George McNeill has been disqualified from the Zurich Classic after missing his second round tee time, he was 3-over through 18 holes.

File this one under odd DQ stories. McNeill was stranded on the course due to darkness during round one. He took to the course this morning and made a mess of the back nine in the process. On the par-4 13th hole he had a mishap on the green that led to a double bogey and then found water on his approach shot at the par-4 16th. Once again, that lead to a double bogey. He backed that up with two more consecutive bogeys to close the round, rinsing another ball at the par-5 18th. McNeill closed the round at 3-over 75 and did not care to give TPC Louisiana another chance today. This will go in the books as his second DQ of the season, the first coming at the Puerto Rico Open due to a non-conforming club.

Jhonattan Vegas torched TPC Louisiana in round one of the Zurich Classic, signing for an 8-under-par 32-32=64 to share the 18-hole lead with Brian Stuard.

Vegas had the putter working right from the get-go in round one. He rolled in a 12'6" putt to save par on the par-3 third hole and splashed one home from 14'10" on the par-4 fifth hole just to get things started. Vegas would tack one four more putts from outside 10 feet before the round was over. That includes the biggest highlight for gamers which came on the par-5 seventh hole when he dropped in a 10'10" eagle roll. This opening 64 matches his season-low round (Frys.com Open, R1). Vegas posted a T36 in his 2015 Zurich debut (67-71-69-69) so this easily eclipses his low round at TPC Louisiana.

First-round leader Hennie Otto was 9-under through 14 holes before the second round of the Volvo China Open was called off for the day due to the threat of lightning at Topwin Golf and Country Club.

The horn sounded at 3.50pm local time with the earliest of the afternoon starters still having three holes to play. Round two is set to resume at 6.45am on Saturday morning, with play in round three scheduled to begin at 10am. Otto peeled off seven birdies and an eagle in his opening 63 but, as we see so often, couldn't find the same spark a day later. A bogey at 2 got him off on the wrong foot although he did hit back with birdies at 3 and 7. The South African followed that with six pars and a bogey at 13 in his next seven holes so was probably happy to get off the course and hope for better fortunes the following day. That said, he'll resume just two shots behind clubhouse leader Felipe Aguilar.

South Korean Tae-hoon Kim highlighted an 8-under-par 33-31=64 at the Volvo China Open on Friday with a hole-in-one at the 13th.

Already 5-under for his round, Kim drained his tee-ball at the 177-yarder to accelerate further, eventually ending at 9-under 135. That's just two shots behind leader Felipe Aguilar. "It was about 165 metres but the view from the tee, we couldn't see the hole, only the top of the flag. I was aiming a little to the left of the pin and I just hit a seven iron, it was a beautiful shot and the galleries beside the green shouted out so that's how I knew," he said. As well as that eagle, Kim circled birdies at 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 15 and 16. He swallowed his only bogey at 17. Kim's hole-in-one was the second of the week following Rikard Karlberg's first-round ace at the 16th on Thursday.

Felipe Aguilar jumped to the top of the leaderboard on day two of the Volvo China Open after hitting all 18 greens in regulation in a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-31=65.

The Chilean's flawless lap of Topwin Golf & CC took him to 11-under 133 through 36 holes, a stroke clear of Alex Noren and Bernd Wiesberger. Aguilar compiled a steady front nine, making seven pars and picking up birdies at the two par 5s (Nos. 4 and 8). He then hit the gas coming home, circling red at 10, 11, 14, 16 and 18. As well as perfect GIR stats, he hit 12 (of 14) fairways and took 30 putts. The 41-year-old has started the year slowly but revealed why after the round. "I missed several cuts by one or two shots and I wasn't putting very well, missing shots that I usually don't. I guess now I believe my doctors when they said I would struggle to recover my fitness from doing an ironman competition (over Christmas). They said I would struggle for about two months afterwards and I actually did because it's such fine margins in this sport. I haven't done much exercise in recuperating my body, but I have been doing a lot of work lately so hopefully this will do it."
