In his last start before scheduled surgery, Richard Sterne shared 14th place at the Nedbank Golf Challenge in Sun City, South Africa.

Sterne didn't close like a man ready to have a torn labrum in his hip repaired in the coming days. He played his last 11 holes in bogey-free, 8-under-par with an eagle and six birdies. The spurt allowed him to climb into red numbers for the week at 5-under 283. As we relayed nearly a month ago, he's expected to miss three months of action. Brandt Snedeker is the poster boy for having surgery on his hips and not missing a beat upon return, so don't immediately rule out a quick return from the 32-year-old South African.

Bill Haas steadied a 5-under-par 33-34=67 at PGA West's Palmer Private to reach 22-under 266, securing his second victory at the Humana Challenge.

Haas got off to a shaky start, missing the green at the par-3 fourth that led to a bogey. He immediately bounced back with a 12'5" birdie roll on the par-4 fourth. The Wake Forest product added an eagle on the par-5 sixth and three more birdies along the way. Finally, he arrived on the 18th tee needing a par to win the tournament, but a poor drive resulted in an awkward lie just outside a fairway bunker. He recovered nicely and found himself two-putting for his sixth career PGA TOUR title. With this win, Haas secures his spot into the PGA Championship and World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Sung Joon Park fashioned a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 to reach 21-under 267 and grab a share of the clubhouse lead with Charley Hoffman and Brendan Steele.

The PGA TOUR rookie showed a lot of grit today as he looked like a non-factor before making the turn. From there, Park circled five birdies on the back nine including four straight putts from outside nine feet, starting with a 14'1" par save at the 10th and finishing with a 12'5" birdie roll on the par-4 13th. The rookie is the surprise story of the week and he will wait patiently in the clubhouse with a legitimate chance at getting back out there for a playoff.

Brendan Steele capped off his week at PGA West's Palmer Private with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 to join Charley Hoffman atop the Humana Challenge leaderboard at 21-under 267.

Steele consistently posted sub-69s all week but saved his best for last. He took advantage of all four par 5s, playing them at 4-under on the day. Most of the damage was done prior to reaching the green as he walked off the 18th green with 5.900 strokes gained:tee-to-green. The season-low round of 64 puts Steele in a share of the clubhouse lead, where he will watch the remaining golfers intently.

Charley Hoffman carved up PGA West's Palmer Private to the tune of a bogey-free, 8-under-par 34-30=64, grabbing the clubhouse lead at 21-under 267.

Hoffman put on a birdie barrage, coming in with six birdies on the back nine of Palmer Private at PGA West. He did it in an unorthodox way, holing out twice from off the green and rolling in two putts from outside of 20 feet. After an opening 1-under-par, Hoffman closed out the Humana 20-under over the final three rounds. He will patiently wait in the clubhouse as he tries to win his second Humana Challenge and also his second event of the season.

Jason Dufner completed 54 holes of the Humana Challenge in 6-under-par 76-65-69=210, missing the cut by two strokes.

Seventy-two golfers survived at 8-under 208 or lower, so all will play the final round at PGA West's Palmer Private. Dufner had cashed in his last five trips to the desert dating back to 2007, but he hadn't returned since 2012. After a dreadful opened at La Quinta Country Club this week, he lit up both tracks at PGA West for a total of one eagle and 10 birdies against two bogeys, so he'll take some confidence into next week's stop at TPC Scottsdale where he missed the cut in his last visit in 2013. Other notables that failed to survive today's cut include: 209--Zach Johnson; Jerry Kelly; rookie Zac Blair ... 210--rookie Nick Taylor; Brandt Snedeker ... 211--Russell Knox ... 213--2011 champ Jhonattan Vegas; Steven Bowditch ... 214--2006 champ Chad Campbell; Luke Donald; Andres Gonzales ... 215--1996 champ Mark Brooks ... 216--2005 champ Justin Leonard ... 229--2003 champ Mike Weir.

Shawn Stefani torched PGA West's Nicklaus Private for a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in his third round of the Humana Challenge.

If not for an opening 75 at Palmer Private at PGA West, Stefani might be in the mix for his first PGA TOUR title this week. His 6-under 66 at La Quinta Country Club on Friday included a hole-in-one on the par-3 third hole, his 12th of the round. Today, he piped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 17 greens in regulation en route to an eagle (at the par-5 16th) and seven birdies. The 63 goes in the books as his career low on TOUR; this is his 47th start. At 12-under 204, Stefani is in a 10-way tie for 24th place five strokes off the pace of the overnight quad-leaders.

Michael Putnam bends but doesn't break with a 3-under-par 35-34=69 at La Quinta Country Club to grab a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead at 17-under 199.

Putnam found just 12 greens in regulation on the day but minimized the damage to just one bogey. Three of his last four Humana rounds have now been signed for 67 or better. Given the logjam at the top, Putnam will need another sub-68 if he wants to contend for his first PGA TOUR title.
Jan 24 - 6:55 PM

Justin Thomas spun a 4-under-par 34-34=68 at PGA West's Palmer Private, grabbing a share of the current 54-hole clubhouse lead at 17-under 199.

The youngster out of the University of Alabama continues to impress during his rookie season. He found 13 greens in regulation on the day, converting six into birdies. Thomas is in great position for a third top 10 of the season and a chance to grab his first PGA TOUR title. Gamers should continue to back him while the iron is hot.
Jan 24 - 5:54 PM

Bill Haas settled for a 3-under-par 35-34=69 at Nicklaus Private at PGA West, reaching the 54-hole mark of the Humana Challenge with a share of the current clubhouse lead at 17-under 199.

After 46 holes of blemish-free golf, Haas finally squared his first bogey of the tournament at the par-3 11th hole. The Wake Forest product hit 16 greens in regulation but his putter's conversion rate held him back to just four birdies on the day. He now has seven straight Humana rounds of 67 or better. It is unlikely Haas will enter Sunday with the clubhouse lead still intact but he will surely be one of the favorites to take home the hardware.

Erik Compton constructed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 35-32=67 in his third round of the Humana Challenge at PGA West's Nicklaus Private.

Compton has learned the intricacies of these courses and it shows as he now has three straight rounds of 66 or better. Entering the week, he had just one sub-67 in 11 career Humana rounds. Compton was resilient today as he converted a meager six (of 14) fairways hit into 12 greens in regulation. He will enter Sunday at 17-under 199 with a great chance to pick off his maiden PGA TOUR victory.
Jan 24 - 5:21 PM

Ryan Moore withdrew from the Humana Challenge before today's third round, citing a neck injury.

He was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at PGA West's Nicklaus Private at 9:10 a.m. PT. Moore opened with a 3-under 72 at Palmer Private at PGA West, but blew up for a 5-over 77 at La Quinta Country Club in the second round. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Waste Management Phoenix Open.
