Henrik Stenson has withdrawn from this week's South African Open to rest his injured right wrist.

While the decision makes sense, it can't be easy for any touring pro to step away from a tournament at which he is the defending champion. And since Stenson won the DP World Tour Championship and the Race to Dubai on Sunday, it may have a few casual observers scratching their heads. "Despite my performance in Dubai, I am still having concerns about my wrist, and it really needs to rest," he said. "I realize this is disappointing to the organizers and my fans, but this decision was extremely difficult for me. I love this tournament and was always looking forward to coming back to defend my title. Unfortunately, in our line of business, we have to be very mindful of injuries and be careful not to make matters worse." If he's willing and able, his next scheduled start is the Nedbank Golf Challenge on Dec. 5-8.

Overnight co-leader Dustin Johnson submitted a 1-under-par 34-37=71 after today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 208, down one place into a two-way T2, one back of 54-hole leader and 2013 champ Brandt Snedeker.

The FedExCup leader co-led after each of the first two rounds with Luke List, his playing partner on Day 3. While List was scuffling about to a 77, DJ pieced together a four-birdie three-bogey showing. He landed a week-best 14 greens in regulation, but posted a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR and -0.438 SG: Putting. The 32-year-old is looking for his third win this season, third in his last four starts. His victories at the WGC-Bridgestone and the U.S. Open were both in come-from-behind fashion. Johnson will play out of the penultimate twosome and if he wins on Sunday, it'll be the first time he's recorded three victories in one season and will be his 12th overall in 196 career starts.

Past champ Brandt Snedeker hung up a 6-under-par 30-36=66 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach 9-under 207, up 15 spots on the day and good for a one-shot lead over Canadian amateur Jared du Toit and 36-hole co-leader Dustin Johnson.

The 2013 champ won here at Glen Abbey GC from the 54-hole perch, leading by one and eventually winning by three with a closing 70. It was his second win of the season and sixth overall. The 35-year-old will be going for his second title this season as well, claiming his eighth TOUR victory at the Farmers in come-from-behind fashion. He also co-led the Sony after 54 holes, but lost in a playoff to Fabian Gomez. Snedeker began R3 on 3-under (T16), four adrift after opening his seventh RBC in 68-73. He raced out with five straight birdies on Nos. 2-6 before stalling mid-round with seven pars and bogeys at 11 and 15. The Vanderbilt alum rallied for a birdie-4 at 16 from 14'6" and then canned a seven-footer for a walk-off eagle at the par-5 18th.

Sponsor invite and top-ranked Canadian amateur Jared du Toit rallied for a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 208, up one place into a two-way T2, one swing back of 54-hole leader and 2013 champ Brandt Snedeker.

Forty-one years before du Toit was born, Pat Fletcher won the 1954 Canadian Open, the last Canuck to win his nation's championship. The soon-to-be senior at Arizona State opened his PGA TOUR debut in 67-71 to sit in a three-way T3 on 6-under. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he bobbed and weaved to a 1-over first half, outpacing birdies at Nos. 4 and 8, both from five feet and in, with bogeys at 3, 5 and 7 (failed scrambles). The 21-year-old came home in blemish-free 3-under, circling the 12th from 7'1" and ramming home a 40'5" bomb for eagle on the par-5 18th, vaulting him into the final group on Sunday. He's leading the field in putts per GIR at 1.545.

Martin Laird turned in a 4-under-par 34-34=68 after the third round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 210, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T5, three back of clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 33-year-old was the 18-hole leader two starts ago at the opposite-field Barracuda (Modified Stableford) and eventually finished a season-best T7. He arrived this week at No. 126 in the FedExCup standings with just two top 10s in 19 events and only five events remaining until the start of the Playoffs. The Scot began the third frame on 2-under (T21) after opening his fifth Canadian Open in 73-69. He striped eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, currently leading the field in the latter at 81.48 percent (44/54). Laird outpaced one bogey (failed scramble) with five birdies, each from inside of 12 feet.

Steve Wheatcroft styled a career-tying-low 8-under-par 32-32=64 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open, setting the 36-hole clubhouse mark at 7-under 209 and posting the low round of the week. UPDATE: With play completed, Wheatcroft is in a two-way T4, two back of 54-hole leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 38-year-old was playing his 368th career round on TOUR and this matches the 64 he shot in 2012 at the Greenbrier, also in the third round. He began the day on 1-over (T47), one inside the cut line after opening his fifth RBC appearance in 68-77. The Indiana University alum went 13 strokes lower than yesterday, overshadowing bogeys on Nos. 2 and 15 with eight birdies and a walk-off eagle-3 from 42'10". His card featured three sets of back-to-back birdies and he capped with a birdie-birdie-eagle finish. The Pennsylvania native peppered 14 greens in regulation, circling seven par breakers the conventional way and adding birdie-2s at the eighth from 25'8" away in the fringe and a pitch-in 40'6" from the target at the 12th. He gained 5.815 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.962 SG: Putting.

Derek Fathauer twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post the second best round of the week (Steve Wheatcroft, 64/R3) and reach 5-under 211.

The 30-year-old began the day on T62 after making the cut on the number (74-72). Thru 36 holes he carded six birdies against six bogeys and one double. The University of Louisville alum bested his two-day output in par breakers with seven birdies in R3, posting 1.625 putts per GIR on 16 greens. His split featured a 24-footer at the par-4 11th and four conversions from between 12 and 21 feet, signing his card with a 4.097 SG: Putting.

Michael Thompson circled 10 birdies en route to a 6-under-par 30-36=66 on Day 3 of the RBC Canadian Open, reaching the three-quarter mark on 4-under 212, up 44 places on the live leaderboard to T18.

Thompson was paired with Derek Fathauer in R3 and were the third group off after the duo were among 19 players who made the cut on the number. For his part, Fathauer painted a bogey-free 65 (seven birdies), the low round of the week, while the 31-year-old Thompson took some of the luster off his lap with a bogey and double bogey-6. The Sea Island, Georgia, resident entered the week off a season-best T4 at the Barbasol, where he recovered from an opening 1-over 72 with rounds of 64-68-65. It was his first top 10 of the season in 19 starts.

Si Woo Kim smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open, carding just the third bogey-free round of the week thus far and posting 3-under 213.

The 21-year-old fired a bogey-free 6-under 65 last week at the Barbasol on Moving Day to vault from T42 to T11, eventually losing in a playoff after a closing 63. This week he started a little further back, T62, one of 19 players to make the cut on the number. Once again, the Web.com Tour grad posted a blemish-free round on Moving Day, circling five birdies on 14 greens in regulation after hitting just two GIR during yesterday's one-birdie 77. He's up 34 places to T28 with play still in progress.

Kelly Kraft conjured up a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the midpoint on 6-under 138, one shot back of co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Luke List.

Making his tournament debut, the 27-year-old was tied for the lead playing his final hole, the par-5 18th, but gave back a stroke with a failed scramble, falling into a three-way T3. Elsewhere, he 3-putted the par-4 eighth from 44'4" for bogey, and doubled the par-4 14th, taking three to get on the surface and 3-jacking again from 18'1", but erased all of the blemishes with five birdies. The first-time member though not a rookie converted each from inside of 10 feet on 12 greens in regulation, recording 5.365 SG: Tee-to-Green (4.487 SG: Approach-to-the-Green), but swallowed a -3.143 in SG: Putting. On top of the 3-putts, he also missed two scoring chances from inside of eight feet on Nos. 1 and 2.

A total of 78 pros and two amateurs made the cut on 2-over 146 with 19 finishing T62 on the number. McDowell, making his fifth appearance, completed 36 holes with six birdies against 11 bogeys and one double.

Canada's top-ranked amateur and sponsor invite Jared du Toit tossed up a 1-under-par 36-35=71 in today's second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 6-under 138, one stroke back of 36-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Luke List in a three-way T3. UPDATE: R3 will be twosomes off a SINGLE tee and du Toit will be in the third-to-last group.

With 80 players set to make the 36-hole cut, third-round tee times will most likely be threesomes off split tees. If that is the case, the 21-year-old will play out of the penultimate group on Saturday in his PGA TOUR debut. He began R2 on the back nine and exchanged birdie-3 at the 10th with a failed scramble at the 14th before back-to-back circles on 17 and 18 to turn 2-under. An errant tee shot at the 2nd led to a triple bogey-8 and du Toit squared the fifth (failed scramble) before bouncing back with three straight birdies on holes 6-8, all from greater than 17 feet and kicking off the run with a 66'5" bomb at the par-4 sixth. He saved par from a greenside bunker at the ninth, capping with an 11'3" par putt. du Toit found half (of 14) fairways and hit 10 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.770 in SG: Putting.
