Briny Baird shares the 54-hole lead at The McGladrey Classic following his 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round, moving to 10-under 200 for the tournament.

Baird is infamous for having earned the most money on the PGA TOUR without a victory, but he could remove that dubious distinction from his resume on Sunday. His round featured five birdies, including three in succession to end his day, to just a pair of bogeys. The blemishes were back-to-back on the ninth and 10th holes. He ranks 18th and strokes gained-putting but fourth in putting average, so he’s getting the ball in the hole when he finds the GIR.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 440 Corey Conners patched together a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational for a four-day tally of 9-under 271, down four spots to a career-best T8.

This is the Canadian's first top-10 finish in 29 events (25 pro), bettering a T13 at the opposite-field Corales seven starts ago.

He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.892 strokes approaching and 1.534 tee-to-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident squared four bogeys at holes 4, 5, 14 and 18, slightly outpaced by five circles at 1, 2, 8 (from 11'1"), 15 and 17. He recorded -1.713 SG: Putting needing 30 total putts. For the week, Conners tallied 21 birdies against 12 bogeys.

Beginning four shots back and tied second, World No. 68 Emiliano Grillo hung up a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational to wrap on 16-under 264, down one spot to a season-tying-best solo 3rd, four adrift of overnight leader and champion Justin Rose, who also shot 64.

This was the 25-year-old's third FWI with progressively better finishes of T55/2016 and T24 last year. It's his seventh top 25 of the season in 16 starts, fifth top 10 and second top 5, matching a T3 in Houston. His 64 today matches his career low in 263 rounds, also posting that number in R1, and sandwiched middle laps of 67-69. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, the Argentine found six (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.743 strokes around-the-green. He carded six birdies at holes 1, 4, 6, 7, 16 and 18, five from between 10 and 24 feet, and also canned three par-savers from between six and 23 feet. The Florida resident recorded 23 total putts and 4.301 SG: Putting, No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 10.695. For the week, he tallied 21 birdies against five bogeys.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 11 Brooks Koepka tossed up a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational to reach 17-under 263, good for solo 2nd, three short of overnight leader and champion Justin Rose, who shot 64.

This is the 28-year-old's sixth runner-up finish in 93 events, second this season in six starts. He was co-runner-up at the WGC-HSBC in his season-opener back in October, also to Rose. After opening with 70-63-67, the FSU product began T2, four back. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 1.903 strokes on approach but gaining 2.292 around-the-green. The Floridian squared a lone bogey-5 at 18, camouflaged by seven routine birdies at 1, 2, 7, 11, 13, 15 and 17, three from between 10 and 18 feet, adding a hole-out birdie-3 at 6 from a greenside bunker. He posted 4.381 SG: Putting with 23 total putts. For the week, Koepka tallied 25 birdies against four bogeys and two doubles, and was No. 1 in SG: Off-the-Tee (5.172) and T1 in total birdies and bogeys.
May 27 - 6:34 PM

Second- and third-round leader and World No. 5 Justin Rose twirled a 6-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational for a 72-hole tally of 20-under 260, good for a three-shot win over playing competitor Brooks Koepka and his ninth PGA TOUR title in 315 events.

The 37-year-old, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, bags his second win of the season in 10 starts (WGC-HSBC), becomes the season's fifth multiple champion, and improves to 4-for-14 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes. This was his fifth cash in five visits and second top 25, brushing aside a previous-best T13 on debut in 2005. After kicking off in 66-64-66, the Bahamas resident led by four over two players and hit nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. He squared two bogeys at holes 3 and 18, smothered by eight birdies at 1, 2, 5-7, 9, 11 and 15, five from between 10 and 27 feet. The Englishman posted 1.854 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. For the week, he totaled 25 birdies versus five bogeys and ranked No. 1 in SG: Approach (10.242), SG: Tee-to-Green (15.820), and GIR at 79.17 percent (57/72).

World No. 194 Kevin Tway enjoyed a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational to wrap on 10-under 270, up four spots to a season-best T5.

This was the Oklahoma State product's third appearance, second cash and second top 25, bettering T18 last year. It's his second top 25 of the season in 21 starts, second top 10 and second straight after T9 at the Byron Nelson. After opening with 66-69-68, the 29-year-old began T9, seven back of leader Justin Rose. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.638 strokes off-the-tee and 2.652 tee-to-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 9, outpaced by four birdies at 1, 11, 16 (from 14'11") and 18. He registered -0.851 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. For the week, Tway totaled 18 birdies versus eight bogeys en route to his fourth career top-5 finish in 80 events, first since T5 at last year's Wells Fargo.

Making his tournament debut, non-member and World No. 661 Joaquin Niemann styled a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational to finish up on 9-under 271, up 15 places to T6 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Niemann finished T8, 11 shy of overnight leader and champion Justin Rose.

The 19-year-old was making his seventh career start and was one of two Champions Choice invitees this week. It's his fifth start this season (fourth pro) and second cash, right on a career-best mark of solo 6th in his pro debut at the Valero on a sponsor invite. After opening with 68-72-65, the Chilean began T21 on 5-under, two short of the overnight top 10. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.717 strokes off-the-tee and 1.899 tee-to-green. The former No. 1-ranked amateur in the world squared a lone bogey-5 at 14, offset by five birdies at 2, 3, 6, 11 and 18, all from inside of 10 feet. He posted 1.643 putts per GIR and 0.947 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. For the week, Niemann tallied 18 birdies versus seven bogeys and one double, and the top-10 finish will get him an exemption into the FedEx St. Jude in two weeks.

First-round leader and World No. 75 Kevin Na painted a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-30=61 in the final round of the Fort Worth Invitational to wrap on 14-under 266; up 19 spots to T2, good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead and matching the course record at Colonial Country Club. UPDATE: With play completed, Na finished solo 4th, six back of overnight leader and champion Justin Rose.

Playing his 1,185th round, the 34-year-old ties his career low shot in R3 at the 2010 Wyndham, also a 9-under version. He's the seventh player to shoot 61 at Colonial, first since Chad Campbell in 2004, and just missed a 60, nearly holing his second at 18 from 146 yards away and tapping in from 12 inches for his ninth birdie of the day. This was the Las Vegas resident's 12th FWI, seventh top 25 and fourth top 10, first since T10 in 2015 as 36- and 54-hole leader. His opening bogey-free 62 was a new best in Fort Worth before today's effort, and sandwiched middle laps of 73-70. For the week, Na tallied one eagle and 21 birdies against five bogeys and two doubles and is currently No. 1 in SG: Approach (9.689). It's his fourth top 25 of the season in 16 starts and third top 10, second straight (T6, Byron Nelson).

Rory McIlroy rallied late in a two-under-par 35-35=70 at the BMW PGA Championship over the West Course at Wentworth but, with 15-under 273, had to settle for solo second place, two shots back from winner Francesco Molinari.

This was one that got away for the Northern Irishman, who looked to have taken hold of the tournament at the halfway mark after opening 67-65. But he could only advance his score another three shots under par on the weekend while Molinari played his final 36 in ten-under. McIlroy looked out of synch early and opened with seven pars. He finally put a red number on his scorecard at 8 before wobbling around the turn with bogeys at 9 and 10 to allow Molinari to kick clear. He birdied the par-5 12th, added another at 17 and could really have put the Italian under pressure at 18 but left his eagle try in the jaws. That gave Molinari two putts from six feet for the win and he needed just one. McIlroy's feast or famine results at Wentworth now read 2-MC-1-MC-MC although this week's performance suggests his 2014 victory was not the exception to the rule.

Course horse Francesco Molinari crafted a flawless final-round 32-36=68 to post 17-under 271 and take victory in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth by two shots from Rory McIlroy, securing his fifth European Tour title and first Rolex Series event in the process.

Defending champion Alex Noren and Lucas Bjerregaard took tied third, three adrift of Molinari. The Italian started the final round tied for the lead with McIlroy but, for the second day running, kept a bogey off his card to hold his rivals at bay. Remarkably, after bogeying his very first hole of the tournament, Molinari dropped just one more shot the rest of the week, at the 10th in round two. Every birdie has counted since that point and Molinari made four more today (3, 4, 8 and 12) to shoot 10-under on the weekend. Runner-up 12 months ago and owner of four top tens in the previous five years at Wentworth, this is a title he's had his eye on for a long time. His game has always been a perfect fit for the West Course and so it proved this week as he finished 4th in Driving Accuracy and 8th for GIR.

World No. 68 Emiliano Grillo pieced together a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Fort Worth Invitational for a 54-hole total of 10-under 200, T2 on the leaderboard and four short of playing competitor and leader Justin Rose, who shot 66. UPDATE: Grillo will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4 with TOUR rookie Corey Conners.

The Argentine is eyeing his second TOUR title in 73 events, joining the 2016 Frys.com Open in his first start as a member and 65 starts ago. At the Frys, he came from two back with 3-under 69 and won a 2-man playoff (Kevin Na). After opening this week in 64-67, the 25-year-old began in solo 2nd, one back of leader Rose. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing strokes off-the-tee and around-the-green, but gaining 1.747 on approach. The Bradenton, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-5 at 15, slightly outpaced by back-to-back birdie-3s at 9 and 10, both from inside of 14 feet. He posted a pedestrian 1.846 putts per GIR and -1.287 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. Grillo missed three scoring tries from inside of nine feet.
