Henrik Stenson extended the gap in the third round of the TOUR Championship, posting a 1-under-par 31-38=69 and leading Dustin Johnson by four strokes at 11-under 199.

The Swede started off the morning on fire, circling four birdies without a blemish on his opening nine at East Lake Golf Club. They came easy, as two of them were inside three feet. He would struggled to get his round to the clubhouse, squaring four bogeys to just one birdie on the back, including a 3-putt on the par-3 18th. Of note, he is a bogey-free 13-under on the front nine for the week, so it's imperative he get off to a solid start in the final round. Though he ranks either first or second in driving accuracy, GIR, strokes gained-putting and putting average, it was easily his worst statistical round in ball-striking on Saturday. Should he hold on and win, he would also hoist the FedExCup and the additional $10 million prize.

In his first round in over five months, Mark Anderson shot an even-par 35-35=70 on Thursday at The McGladrey Classic.

Back from an injury to his right ankle due to a fall off a ladder, Anderson couldn't have asked for a more exciting day. After opening par-par, he holed his tee ball from 212 yards at the par-3 third. He'd go on to incur four bogeys in a six-hole stretch beginning at the par-4 eighth -- two were as a result of three-putts -- but birdies at 15 and 16 helped ease the sting and avert an over-par score. Overall, Anderson split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, fair numbers given his competitive layoff.

Will MacKenzie totaled a field-high seven birdies en route to a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

MacKenzie was the fourth to 65 today, but he was the first from the afternoon wave. He birdied both par 5s and five par 4s. His longest conversion measured 20'11" for birdie at No. 18, his ninth hole of the round. The fireworks were set up by 13 (of 14) fairways hit and 15 greens in regulation. His only blemish occurred at the par-4 16th where he found trouble off the tee and took a penalty before penciling in a 6. MacKenzie is making his season debut this week. After a sparkling first half of 2013-14, he concluded the campaign 3-for-14 with no top 25s.

Aaron Baddeley toured Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course in 3-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic and finished two strokes off the clubhouse lead.

Badds recorded six red numbers in his first two starts, but he placed outside the top 30 in both. He's evolved into a serviceable own over the years, but probably comes across as an underachiever to the masses. Today was quite something, however, as he converted two eagle-3s. The first was a bit unexpected as he holed out from 14 yards from a lie off the green at the seventh hole. The second was a traditional conversion at No. 15, this time from 43'2". Elsewhere, the Aussie traded one birdie with two bogeys. Today's aggregate is his lowest in a first round since he carded the same en route to a solo fourth-place finish at the Travelers Championship in June.

With a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, Andrew Svoboda is one stroke in arrears of the clubhouse leaders.

Svoboda faded to finish T18 with a closing 73 in Las Vegas this week, but he's already turned the page. He opened with seven pars, including a 12-and-a-half-footer at the par-4 first. He then buried a birdie look from 22 feet at No. 8. After striping his drive at the par-4 ninth, he jarred his approach from 172 yards for eagle. Feeding off this run, Svoboda piled on with another birdie at 10, this time from 15'11". Overall, he split 11 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and suffered just one bogey.
Oct 23 - 2:45 PM

Erik Compton spun a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic to snare a share of the clubhouse lead.

Compton opened with a birdie from 15'1" at the par-4 first hole to set the tone. He birdied the par-4 second from 31-and-a-half feet and added four more, including a 11'1" conversion at the par-4 16th. His only miscue was a bogey at the par-4 14th. Overall, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation. At last check, he ranked second in the field in strokes gained: putting with a clip of 3.373.

Michael Thompson enjoyed a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of The McGladrey Classic, good for a share of the clubhouse lead.

Thompson doesn't make noise often, but he's downright automatic at Seaside where he's finished third (2011) and T10 (2012). He opened both of those editions also with a 65. Today's featured six birdies against a bogey-6 at the 15th hole. Four of his par breakers dropped in from outside 10 feet, including rolls from 19'11" and 40'5" at Nos. 8 and 11, respectively. Given the he entered this week 1-for-5 with a T64 at Sedgefield in August, there no question that he's a horse for this week's course.

Brian Harman opened The McGladrey Classic with a 5-under-par 34-31=65 to establish the early clubhouse lead.

The lefty is making his first start of the season. He didn't waste any time in finding form by splitting 10 (of 14) fairways and hitting 14 greens in regulation. Harman on six opportunities, all for birdies, including rolls of 14'10", 21'7" and 20'3" at Nos. 3, 4 and 8 on his inward nine. This is his lowest aggregate since a third-round 65 en route to his breakthrough victory at the John Deere Classic in July.

Justin Lower holed nine birdies at Brunswick (Ga.) Country Club en route to a 6-under-par 34-30=64 and co-medalist honors at the open qualifier for The McGladrey Classic.

You may recall that Lower is the golfer whose father and brother were killed in a single-car crash when he was a teenager. They were en route to picking him up at a golf course. The Memorial granted him a sponsor exemption this past summer, but he missed the cut. On Monday at Brunswick, Lower was birdie-free 3-over with three bogeys after five holes. He converted all of his birdies in an 11-hole stretch beginning at No. 6. "The Big Break Greenbrier" champ Mark Silvers shared medalist honors at 6-under 32-32=64. He traded seven birdies with one bogey. The McGladrey will be his fifth PGA TOUR start; he's still chasing his first payday. The final two berths were snagged by Patrick Newcomb (4-under 36-30=66; 8 birdies, 2 bogeys, 1 double) and Andy Pope (4-under 34-32=66; 7 birdies, 1 bogey, 1 double). Both survived a 5-for-2 playoff that included PGA TOUR winner Marc Turnesa and former TOUR member Casey Wittenberg. The field at Seaside is now complete at 132.

Rory McIlroy announced that his ongoing legal dispute will force him to miss playing time in the coming weeks.

The Irish Independent reported that the world's top-ranked golfer will take a pass on either the BMW Masters (Oct. 30-Nov. 2) or the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions (Nov. 6-9). If he sits out both, he's unlikely to skip the DP World Tour Championship on Nov. 20-23. The annual stop in Dubai concludes the European Tour season.

Sixteen golfers qualified for the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions from the latest edition of the Official World Golf Ranking.

An array of qualifying criteria into the 78-man field at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China, on Nov. 6-9 centered on this weekend. Whether all of the qualifiers will compete is another story, but here's the list of those previously ineligible until the OWGR was released (current world ranking): Phil Mickelson (11th); Jordan Spieth (14th); Tiger Woods (17th); Keegan Bradley (27th); Steve Stricker (28th); Bill Haas (29th); Webb Simpson (31st); Jason Dufner (32nd); Kevin Na (34th); Graham DeLaet (41st); Ian Poulter (43rd); Brendon Todd (44th); Brandt Snedeker (45th); Marc Leishman (47th); Ryan Moore (48th); Gary Woodland (49th).

With Kevin Streelman charging, Ben Martin claimed his first PGA TOUR victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Martin closed with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 to post 20-under 264, two strokes clear of Streelman. The Clemson product enjoyed a four-stroke lead when he made the turn, but a bogey at the par-4 11th while Streelman was securing five birdies on his last seven holes briefly slid Martin into the role of a chaser. The would-be champ answered when it mattered, finding the green with a driver the par-4 15th and securing a two-putt birdie, and then holing an eagle from 46'5" at the par-5 16th to overtake Streelman for good. Martin ended the round in style, converting a 19-foot birdie on the par-4 18th. He finished the week second in strokes gained: putting, tied for third in greens hit and seventh in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Not bad for a guy that missed the cut with rounds of 78 and 79 at last week's Open. With this victory, he is exempt into the Masters, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.
