Unheralded Australian Jason Norris completed a life-changing week with a dominant four-shot victory in the Fiji International; he closed with a 5-under-par 31-36=67 for a 14-under 274 total at Natadola Bay GC.

The 44-year-old has been a pro for 21 years and whilst there have been victories on his home tour and the odd bright spot on the OneAsia circuit, this victory came right out of the blue for the World No. 1238. Given the background his final day performance was extraordinary. One shot behind Wade Ormsby at the start of play he caught and passed him with six front nine birdies at 1, 3, 4, 7, 8 and 9. There was a bogey in there at 5 and he’d add two more at 10 and 15, but a couple of back nine par breakers at 13 and 17 settled the nerves. His fellow 54-hole contenders couldn’t live with the pace. Jazz Janewattanond and David McKenzie flew home to join James Marchesani in a tie for second on 10-under. "I felt like a champion," said Norris. "I was in a good spot."

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 146 Ollie Schniederjans authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship for a three-day tally of 15-under 195, up two spots into a three-way T2, one adrift of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson.

The 24-year-old is chasing his first TOUR title in his 39th career event (36 pro) and will play out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.490 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.756 approaching-the-green and 0.076 tee-to-green. The Georgia Tech alum squared a pair of bogey-4s at Nos. 3 and 16 (failed scrambles), outpaced by six circles at 5, 8-10, 12, and 15, five from between 10 and 28 feet. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR and 3.323 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts.

World No. 80 Kevin Na styled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 15-under 195, up four spots into a three-way T2, one back of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson whom he'll be paired with in the final twosome on Sunday.

After opening in 67-63, the 33-year-old began T6 on 10-under, three shy of 36-hole co-leaders Webb Simpson and Ryan Armour. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.229 SG: Off-the-Tee and -0.021 SG: Approach-the-Green. The Las Vegas resident squared a lone bogey-4 at No. 7, missed par-saver from 5'1", camouflaged by six circles at 5, 8, 9, 14, 15 and 17, two from between 12 and 44 feet. He registered 1.538 putts per GIR and 2.693 SG: Putting, needing 26 total putts. Na's lone TOUR title in 347 prior career events is the 2011 Shriners as 54-hole co-leader.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 59 Webb Simpson backed up with a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the third round of the Wyndham Championship, down one place into a three-way T2, one shy of 54-hole leader Henrik Stenson.

After kicking off in 63-64, the Wake Forest alum co-led with Ryan Armour. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.286 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.239 approaching-the-green. The North Carolinian was bogey-free 3-under thru 16 holes, circling Nos. 2 (from 15'4"), 13 (17'8") and 15, before retreating one with bogey-5 at 17 (failed scramble). He recorded a commercial 1.867 putts per GIR and -0.030 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts. The 32-year-old, winner here in 2011, will play out of the penultimate twosome on Sunday.

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.

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).
