Dawie van der Walt recorded a two-stroke victory at The Nelson Mandela Championship at Mount Edgecombe Country Club in Durban, South Africa.

After a shift to conclude on Saturday, the tournament was reduced to 54 holes due to incessant rain midweek, but it still goes in the books as van der Walt's second career European Tour title. The South African sat three strokes adrift of England's Daniel Brooks entering the finale. van der Walt then carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 with an eagle (at the par-5 12th hole) and five birdies against three bogeys. He posted 15-under 195. Brooks closed with a 6-over 40-36=76 to settle for a share of 11th place. Jorge Campillo, who shot a 59 in the second round, tied for second place with Matthew Baldwin at 13-under 197. "Winning The Nelson Mandela at this time, when it’s sad for everyone, everyone is mourning and tomorrow’s the big day," said van der Walt, "it means a lot and it’s something I can keep close to my heart for ever." For finishing atop the Sunshine Tour's Order of Merit, van der Walt earned exemptions into the WGC-Cadillac Championship and Open Championship.

Overnight leader and World No. 28 Brian Harman labored to a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Travelers Championship, falling two places into a three-way T3 on 11-under 199, five adrift of leader Paul Casey, who carded a week-low 62. UPDATE: Harman will play out of the third-to-last twosome in R4 with Jason Day.

After kicking off with 64-66, the 31-year-old led three players by one shot, two clear of Casey. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.757 strokes tee-to-green and ekeing out a 0.108 SG: Total. The Georgia alum squared three back-nine bogeys at 12, 16 and 17, slightly outpaced by four birdies at 3 (from 18'0") and a hat-trick at 13-15, two of those two-putt varieties. He registered 1.833 putts per GIR and 0.865 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. Harman owns two TOUR titles in 202 events, one as 54-hole leader (2014 John Deere), and one come from behind 31 starts ago at the 2017 Wells Fargo (Eagle Point GC), where he came from two back with 4-under 68 and won by one.

World No. 112 Anirban Lahiri tossed up a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach 11-under 199, up eight spots into a three-way T3, five shy of leader Paul Casey. UPDATE: Lahiri will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4 with J.B. Holmes.

Lahiri's career low in a now 250 rounds came here last year in his tourney debut, carding a bogey-free 63 in R2 en route to a T17. He's chasing his first TOUR title in 76 events, looking to better a career-best T2 at the 2017 Memorial. After opening in 67-67, the Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, resident began T11, four back of leader Brian Harman. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.360 strokes approaching and 3.137 tee-to-green. The 30-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 2 (3-putt from 21'0"), outpaced by four birdies at 1, 11, 15 and 16, and eagle-3 at 13 from eight inches after nearly holing his second from 210 yards away. He also had a near-ace at the 154-yard, par-3 11th, tapping in a 2 from eight inches. The Indian recorded 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.971 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

World No. 93 J.B. Holmes enjoyed a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a three-day total of 11-under 199, up eight places into a three-way T3, five short of leader Paul Casey, who fired a week-low 62.

The 36-year-old is chasing his fifth TOUR title in 287 events, first since the 2015 Houston Open 77 starts ago, where he came from six back with 8-under 64 and won a 3-man playoff (Spieth, Wagner). After opening with 66-68, he began T11, four adrift of leader Brian Harman. The University of Kentucky product, who will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4, squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 8, outpaced by four birdies at 3, 11, 13 and 15, all from inside of six feet, adding a hole-out eagle-2 at 14 from 143 yards out. On nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, he gained 4.194 strokes tee-to-green but lost 0.086 on-the-green with 28 total putts.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, World No. 55 Russell Henley navigated a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole tally of 12-under 198, good for solo 2nd and four in arrears of leader Paul Casey, who fired a week-low 62. UPDATE: Henley will play with Casey out of the final twosome in R4, heading out at 2:00 PM ET.

This is the Georgia alum's highest position thru 54 holes since solo 3rd (and four back) at the 2017 Houston Open, which he went on to win by three with 7-under 65. That's his most recent (of three) TOUR titles in 147 events and came 33 starts ago. After kicking off with 66-65, the 29-year-old began T2, one back of leader Brian Harman. He found 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 0.547 strokes on approach but gaining 1.174 around-the-green and 0.797 off-the-tee. The South Carolina resident carded three birdies at holes 2, 11 and 13, two from between 20 and 32 feet, recording 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.685 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. Thru 54 holes, he's the only player with multiple bogey-free rounds (2), and has just one blemish, a bogey-5 that came 42 holes ago.

Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, World No. 13 Paul Casey twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 in the third round of the Travelers Championship to reach 16-under 194, good for the low round of the week, a four-shot lead over Russell Henley, and matching his career low (in 743 rounds), realized in R1 of the 2015 Sony Open.

This is the Englishman's fourth 54-hole lead/co-lead in 233 events, first since the 2017 TOUR Championship, where he led by two and finished 5th after 3-over 73. He's previously 1-for-3 converting, shooting even-par 72 at the 2009 Houston Open, eventually winning his first TOUR title in a playoff. The 40-year-old, a playoff loser here in 2015, is chasing his third win, second this season in 25 starts. He came from five back at the Valspar (6-under 65) to win by one (Reed, Woods). After opening in 65-67, the ASU product began T5, two back of leader Brian Harman. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and all 18 greens in regulation, gaining 2.508 strokes approaching and 4.324 tee-to-green. Casey circled six at holes 2, 3, 8, 9, 13 and 18, two from between 11 and 20 feet, adding eagle-2 at the drivable par-4 15th from 23'1". He posted 1.611 putts per GIR and 2.786 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

World No. 94 Jamie Lovemark painted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 on Moving Day at the Travelers Championship to reach 9-under 201, up 26 spots on the live leaderboard to T8, good for the low round in the clubhouse and his season low in 61 rounds. UPDATE: With R3 completed, Lovemark is T11, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Paul Casey, who had the low round with 62.

Making his 19th start of the season, the California native's previous low was 67 five times, most recently in R1 at the Memorial in his most recent start three weeks ago. His best finish at the Travelers in four prior visits is T31 in 2014, which included a R2 63. After opening with 68-69, the Jupiter, Florida, resident began T34 on 3-under, four shy of the overnight top 10. He landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 2.304 strokes around and 3.974 tee-to-green. The 30-year-old carded four birdies at holes 3 (from 16'9"), 6, 13 and 18, adding a hole-out eagle-2 at the drivable par-4 15th from 31'5" away. He posted 1.571 putts per GIR and 1.288 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

Martin Kaymer isn't the only German player seeking to thrill the local galleries in the final round of the BMW International Open at Pulheim; Max Kieffer is also part of the six-way tie at the top on 5-under 211 after carding a 1-over-par 35-36-71 in Saturday's third round.

That effort nudged him three spots up the leaderboard and into T1 with Kaymer, Aaron Rai, Scott Hend, Chris Paislay and Lucas Bjerregaard. Intriguingly for the German crowds, Kieffer and Kaymer will play alongside each other in the penultimate two-ball. Kieffer put himself in that position after outpacing three bogeys with four birdies. For the third day running he went birdie-bogey over Nos. 1 and 2 before picking up another shot at 6. On the back nine he started out with four pars before a bogey-birdie-bogey-birdie run from the 14th. This is the first time the 27-year-old has had part of a 54-hole lead on the European Tour so we'll see how well he copes and whether the added angle of it being in front of his own fans is a help or hindrance.

Halfway leader Scott Hend stuttered to a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in round three of the BMW International Open in Germany but ended Saturday still in first place although he has five players alongside him at 5-under 211.

The Aussie's card was a bit of a mess today. It started with a dropped shot out of the gate, contained a bogey-6 at the 7th hole and a double bogey-7 at 13. Another one went at 8. However, Hend was at least able to sprinkle some red too and made back-to-backed circles at 3 and 4 on his front nine and also managed to tick 10 and 16. This wasn't the day Hend wanted as he aimed to turn his one-shot lead into daylight over the field but if this is his difficult day there is still a great chance for the 44-year-old to complete a third European Tour win. He's been in this position four times on the European Tour before, twice going on to lose play-offs at the European Masters (2016 and 2017). He also fell back to T4 at the KLM Open and to T15 at the BMW PGA Championship.

Aaron Rai is having quite a week at the BMW International Open in Germany. After a hole-in-one in yesterday's second round, he finished round three in a tie for the lead on 5-under 211 after compiling a 1-under-par 36-35=71.

It's still a big ask for the young Englishman to go on and claim a first European Tour win as he has five other players alongside him in T1 and they include home hero Martin Kaymer. Rai birdied three of Gut Larchenhof's four par 5s today, those gains coming at 3, 7 and 15. But those were his only red numbers and he also swallowed bogeys at 2 and 9. Eight pars and a birdie on his second nine was a sturdy effort however and he's clearly relishing this week's test. Rai twice had a piece of the 54-hole lead at Challenge Tour level, slumping to T27 at the Slovakia Challenge in 2016 but converting his third-round lead to a victory in last year's Le Vaudreuil Golf Challenge.

Chris Paisley was going nowhere in Saturday's third round at the BMW International Open in Germany but, sparked by birdie-3 at 10, hit the afterburners coming home with six red numbers in eight holes to complete a 4-under-par 38-30=68 and leap into a tie for the lead at 5-under 211.

It's a logjam at the top at Gut Larchenhof in Pulheim and Paisley shares T1 with Lucas Bjerregaard, Martin Kaymer, Aaron Rai, Max Kieffer and Scott Hend while Mikko Korhonen and Nico Geyger are a shot back. Paisley just couldn't get anything going at first and actually fell over-par for the tournament after bogeys at 4 and 5. An even par back nine would have left him outside the top 30. Instead, he started it with four straight red numbers at 10, 11, 12 and 13 before adding another pair of par breakers at 15 and 17. He'll play in the final group alongside Bjerreggard Sunday.
Jun 23 - 12:56 PM

With the low round of the day, a 5-under-par 32-35=67, Lucas Bjerregaard surged into a tie for the lead on 5-under 211 after round three of the BMW International Open in Pulheim, Germany.

The Dane has missed the cut on his two previous starts at Gut Larchenhof but he's writing a different script this week. With 18 holes to play he shares first place with Germans Martin Kaymer and Max Kieffer, Aussie Scott Hend and English pair Aaron Rai and Chris Paisley. Bjerregaard made six bogeys over his first two laps and today swallowed a double bogey-6 at 12 along with a square at 14. But, in contrast to his pair of opening 72s, he outpaced those dropped shots with eight red numbers. Those birdies came in a burst on the front nine (4, 5, 7 and 8) and on the odd-numbered holes at 11, 13, 15 and 17 coming home. Bjerregaard owns three top sixes in his last four European Tour starts so, despite the previous poor course form, it's no surprise to see him up there again.
