Patrick Reed continued his incredible play at the Humana Challenge in the third round, firing an 8-under-par 31-32=63 to take a dominant lead into the final round at 27-under 189.

The setting for Reed's third round was the Nicklaus Private at PGA West, where he began his day on the 10th hole. His back nine featured three birdies and an eagle. He then added five more birdies to just one bogey on the outward nine. Pull out the record books, as his 189 tally bests the 54-hole mark of 191 at the Humana Challenge set by Pat Perez in 2009, but trails Steve Stricker's 188 at the 2010 John Deere Classic for the all-time mark. He also joins four other players at 189 in various PGA TOUR events. Of note, Reed's 27-under is the lowest mark relative to par through 54 holes, as the 188 and other 189s occurred on layouts with a par of less than 72. He'll try and close out his second PGA TOUR win on Palmer Private at PGA West on Sunday, where he posted an opening-round 63 on Thursday.

Johnson Wagner twirled a course-record-tying 7-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of The Barclays to reach 1-under 283, up 39 places on the live leaderboard to T33 and projecting to climb 16 spots to 76th in the FedExCup standings.

The fact that it took a 7-under effort in the finale to get Wagner back to red numbers for the week reflects how poor his first three rounds were. He opened his seventh appearance in 74-69-76 to begin the final frame on 6-over (T72). The Virginia Tech product, whose club affiliation is Hudson National GC (Croton, New York), circled eight birdies against a lone bogey, same as Sung Kang, who matched 64 three groups later. For the week, Wagner carded 16 birdies against 13 bogeys and a double. His and Kang's 64s matched the course record at Bethpage State Park's Black Course, shot by three players, most recently in R1 at the 2012 Barclays by Padraig Harrington.

Thomas Pieters closed out his week with three birdies to clinch the 2016 Made in Denmark tournament and complete a stunning round of 6-under-par 34-31=65; a victory that enhances his case for a Ryder Cup wild card selection.

The Belgian walked to the 16th tee at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort one shot behind the leader David Lipsky and duly produced a conclusion of pure quality. His tee shot at that 86-yard par-3 hole very nearly dropped for an ace; he reduced the 409-yard par-4 17th to a 54-yard approach which he left at tap-in range; and then smoked an 8-iron approach at 18 to 3'0" before draining the putt for a 72-hole total of 17-under 267, which earned him a one stroke victory over Bradley Dredge. Most impressive? Striping huge drives, being clutch under pressure, the raft of birdies, or his steely yet calm demeanour: take your pick. He made 7 birdies and 1 bogey on Sunday as he didn't so much nudge European team captain Darren Clarke as knock him over. "This one is quite cool, the way I finished," he said of his third career European Tour win.

Making his second international appearance since March, Ryo Ishikawa hoisted the trophy today at the Rizap KBC Augusta following rounds of 66-68-70-69 to reach 15-under 273 on the week and win by five strokes.

Ishikawa was last seen on the PGA TOUR missing the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open, during the first week of February. He's been out with lumbar discopathy since then. The 24-year-old made his first rehab appearance in the form of a missed cut in July at the Japan PGA Championship Nissin Cupnoodle Cup. Nearly two months later he got the job done this week at Keya Golf Club, splitting just 21 (of 56) fairways, landed 43 greens (T34 in field), and ranking third in the field in putts per GIR. Ishikawa is also set to team up with Hideki Matsuyama to represent Japan at the World Cup of Golf at the end of November in Melbourne, Australia. Gamers should look for Ishikawa to return stateside in 2017 as he attempts to earn his status through a medical extension after going just 3-for-6 in 2015-16 before the lower back injury derailed his season.

Defending champ and FedExCup leader Jason Day handed in a 1-under-par 35-35=70 after today's third round of The Barclays to post 5-under 208, down one spot into a four-way T6, four shy of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler.

The world No. 1 began the third frame in a five-way T5 on 4-under, four back of 36-hole leader Patrick Reed. Similar to the second round, he carded enough birdies, five, reaching the three-quarter pole T1 in total birdies with 15, but also similar to yesterday, he's dropping more shots than he would like. The Aussie squared four in R3, all on failed scrambles, but he only managed nine greens in regulation on 3 (of 14) fairways. He did toss up a wicked 3.353 in SG: Putting and leads in that stat with a cumulative 6.649. Day is tied DFL in driving accuracy however, at 33.33 percent (14/42).

Overnight leader Patrick Reed conjured up an even-par 36-35=71 in the third round of The Barclays to reach the three-quarter pole on 8-under 205, down one spot to solo second, one adrift of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler.

The 18-hole co-leader and 36-hole leader began R3 with a two-shot cushion over two players, including Fowler, who shot 68. Playing out of the final pairing with Emiliano Grillo, he bobbed and weaved to even-par first half, exchanging bogeys at Nos. 3, 5 and 6 (failed scrambles), with birdies at 4, 7 and 9 (20'10"). After the break, the 26-year-old sleepwalked to nine straight pars. He landed eight (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, posting 0.772 SG: Total. Reed was in positive territory in all strokes gained stats with the exception of a -0.788 in SG: Putting. He missed birdie tries of 6'11" at the par-5 13th, 5'7" at the par-3 17th, and from 14'0" at the last which would've tied Fowler.

Rickie Fowler spun a bogey-free 3-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of The Barclays to post 9-under 204, good for a one-shot lead at the 54-hole mark over 36-hole leader Patrick Reed.

The 27-year-old began R3 in a two-way T2 on 6-under after opening his seventh Barclays in 67-69, two shy of Reed. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he went blemish-free for a second straight lap, and is bogey-free over his last 45 holes, squaring a lone bogey-5 on the ninth hole in R1. The Oklahoma State product mustered just six (of 14) fairways and hit 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.818 putts per GIR and 2.254 SG: Putting. He circled birdie-4s at the fifth and the seventh, adding a walk-off 3 at the par-4 18th, all three dropping from inside of eight feet. Fowler saved par twice from between 10 and 11 feet and from 23'3" at the par-4 fifth. He's making his 21st start of the season and is chasing his fourth career TOUR title (173 career events), first since the 2015 Deutsche Bank.

Past champ Adam Scott painted a week-low 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of The Barclays, up 24 places to T2 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead on 7-under 206. UPDATE: With play completed, Scott is in solo third, two back of 54-hole leader Rickie Fowler.

The 36-year-old, 2013 winner at Liberty National GC, began the third frame on 1-under (T26) after opening his 10th appearance in 69-72, seven adrift of 36-hole leader Patrick Reed. He landed just 3 (of 14) fairways but pelted 14 greens in regulation, posting 5.067 in SG: Approach-the-Green, currently leading in the latter with a cumulative 6.990. The Aussie, a two-time winner this season in 16 starts, kicked off with a hole-out eagle-2 at the first (from the right rough 95 yards away) and added birdies on Nos. 2, 4, 7, 10, 12 and 15. Four of his conversions dropped from inside of 11 feet and also canned a 45-footer for birdie-3 at 12 and a 44-footer for birdie at the par-4 15th. Scott bogeyed the third (3-putt from 36'2") and the 16th (failed scramble) that completed his scoring. He entered the week No. 3 in the FedExCup standings.

Bradley Dredge could only manage a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in round three of the Made in Denmark tournament at the Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort but still tops the leaderboard on 12-under 201 with 18 holes to play.

Three clear at halfway, the Welshman's advantage was reduced to the minimum margin after he swallowed two bogeys and a double during a testing Saturday lap in which he found 6 (of 14) fairways, hit 10 greens in regulation and was 5-for-8 in scrambling. He leads by one from American David Lipsky (67), Spain's Adrian Otaegui (68) and Belgian Thomas Pieters (69) while it's a further stroke back to Swede Jaokim Lagergren. Dredge's problems started with a bogey-6 at the 4th which he recovered with a birdie at 5. Another circle at 11 put him under par for the day but he racked up a double bogey-6 at 12. A birdie at 14 for the third straight round was wiped out by a walk-off bogey at the last. Despite a strong course record here, history stays Dredge could struggle on Sunday. He's taken a lead into the final round 13 times in his European Tour career but still only has two wins, the last in 2006. "Not my best day today," he said. "I really struggled with the driver."

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Hideki Matsuyama crashed and burned to a 4-over-par 35-40=75 in today's second round of The Barclays and at 4-over 71-75=146, missed the cut by one stroke.

A total of 79 players made the cut of 3-over 145. Effective last year, there is no 54-hole/MDF cut in the Playoffs. Matsuyama was making his third straight appearance and had posted progressively better finishes of T30 in 2014 (Ridgewood CC) and T13 last season (Plainfield CC). He entered the week at No. 12 in the FedExCup standings and off consecutive top-4 finishes at the PGA Championship and last week at the Wyndham. After an up-and-down even-par 71 to kick off, he squared four bogeys and a double bogey-6 in R2 before finally connecting for back-to-back birdies on 6 and 7. The 24-year-old mustered just 11 GIR and a dismal -3.710 in SG: Putting. Other notable early exits include: 146- Si Woo Kim ... 147- Daniel Summerhays; Jimmy Walker; Danny Lee; Kevin Na ... 148- Bill Haas; David Lingmerth; Graeme McDowell ... 149- Marc Leishman; Francesco Molinari ... 150- Branden Grace.

Overnight co-leader Patrick Reed orchestrated a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in today's second round of The Barclays to reach the midpoint on 8-under 134, good for a two-shot lead over Emiliano Grillo and Rickie Fowler.

The 26-year-old co-led with Martin Laird after an opening bogey-free 66. It was his second lead/co-lead this season after any round in his 25th start. The Texan was the 18-hole leader at the Hyundai TOC, eventually finishing runner-up to Jordan Spieth. He raced out of the gate on Day 2 at Bethpage Black, circling back-to-back birdies on Nos. 1 and 2 (18'10") and adding birdie-4s at 4 and 7. Reed squared the par-3 eighth (failed scramble) to turn 3-under, his first blemish of the week in 26 holes. He came home in even-par, exchanging birdies on 13 and 17 with bogeys on 16 and 18, the former a 3-putt from 31'4". Reed landed just seven (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.769 putts per GIR.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, PGA TOUR rookie Emiliano Grillo pieced together a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's second round of The Barclays to post 6-under 136, up one spot to T2, two back of 36-hole leader Patrick Reed.

The Argentine was one (of six) rookies to qualify for this year's Playoffs. He chased an opening 67 with today's effort, which book-ended a double bogey-6 on the 10th with a bogey-5 17 holes later on the ninth. In between, he circled five birdies, including three straight on Nos. 12-14. The 23-year-old striped nine (of 14) fairways and improved slightly to 13 greens in regulation and 1.615 putts per GIR. He lost 1.144 strokes around-the-green but otherwise was in positive territory, highlighted by 1.311 SG: Putting. All five of his birdies dropped from inside of 10 feet.
