Patrick Reed withdrew from this week's Farmers Insurance Open due to displaced ribs.

It was announced late today that he bowed out of attempting to go back-to-back. Many golfers play through any magnitude of soreness and injury, but Reed can afford to heal and rest this malady after his wire-to-wire triumph at the Humana Challenge.

With Kevin Streelman charging, Ben Martin claimed his first PGA TOUR victory at the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Martin closed with a 3-under-par 35-33=68 to post 20-under 264, two strokes clear of Streelman. The Clemson product enjoyed a four-stroke lead when he made the turn, but a bogey at the par-4 11th while Streelman was securing five birdies on his last seven holes briefly slid Martin into the role of a chaser. The would-be champ answered when it mattered, finding the green with a driver the par-4 15th and securing a two-putt birdie, and then holing an eagle from 46'5" at the par-5 16th to overtake Streelman for good. Martin ended the round in style, converting a 19-foot birdie on the par-4 18th. He finished the week second in strokes gained: putting, tied for third in greens hit and seventh in strokes gained: tee-to-green. Not bad for a guy that missed the cut with rounds of 78 and 79 at last week's Frys.com Open. With this victory, he is exempt into the Masters, the WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship.

Kevin Streelman fired a final-round 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to post the clubhouse lead at 18-under 266.

Streelman put together a round reminiscent of his win at the 2014 Travelers Championship. At the Travelers, he stole the win by circling birdies on his last seven holes. Similarly, he birdied five of his last seven at TPC Summerlin on Sunday. Three of those birdies were of note, holing putts of 23'9", 11'8" and 17'9" on the 12th, 13th and 17th holes. He found 16 GIR for the second consecutive round and was tied for the lead in GIR for the week at the time of his posting. He will now wait to see how Ben Martin plays the final two holes to see if a win or a playoff are in his future.

David Lipsky, Anirban Lahiri and Scott Hend earned exemptions into the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6-9.

The trio sits a respective 1-2-3 on the Order of Merit on the Asian Tour. The top three through the Hong Kong Open are exempt into the 78-man field at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China. Lipsky is a rising American via Northwestern University. He has one win, a T2 and a T4 in nine starts on circuit. He tied for 72nd in his debut at the WGC-HSBC at Mission Hills in 2012. The 26-year-old is already exempt into the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. Lahiri will be making his debut in the WGC-HSBC. The 27-year-old Indian has a win and five other top 10s in 12 starts this season, but he's $325K in arrears of Lipsky's pace in earnings. Hend snuck in the side door for his third consecutive appearance at the WGC-HSBC with today's victory in Hong Kong. He hadn't placed better than T18 in five previous starts this season.

Marc Warren has secured an exemption into his first World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions.

The top 15 not otherwise exempt in the Race to Dubai standings after this weekend's doubleheader punched tickets into the field of 78 at Sheshan International Golf Club in Shanghai, China, on Nov. 6-9. This qualifying criterion was expanded by 10 over last year's edition. Warren sits 20th in the R2D. The other 14 qualifiers are (R2D rank): Jamie Donaldson (4th); Joost Luiten (9th); Mikko Ilonen (10th); Stephen Gallacher (11th); Shane Lowry (13th); Thongchai Jaidee (15th); Tommy Fleetwood (17th); Miguel Angel Jiménez (18th); Alexander Levy (19th); Jonas Blixt (21st); Ernie Els (24th); Francesco Molinari (26th); Edoardo Molinari (27th); Simon Dyson (28th).

With a par on the only hole of sudden death, Australian Scott Hend walked away with the trophy at the Hong Kong Open, his first on the European Tour.

The tournament was co-sanctioned by the Asian Tour where Hend had five victories prior to this one. He closed out regulation at Hong Kong Golf Club in 13-under 267, matched only by Angelo Que of the Philippines, who bogeyed the 18th hole in the playoff. Both golfers began the final round chasing Marcus Fraser. The Aussie stumbled home in 2-over 72 to open the door; he settled for a share of fifth place. Before today's breakthrough, Hend's best finish in 104 starts on the European Tour was a T2 at the 2007 Volvo China Open.

With his victory at today's Japan Open, Yuta Ikeda has earned an exemption into the 2015 Open Championship.

Ikeda slept on a three-stroke margin, but closed in 2-over-par 36-36=72 with two birdies, two bogeys and one double. Nevertheless, he posted 10-under 270 to clip Shingo Katayama and Satoshi Kodaira by one. Prayad Marksaeng finished alone in fourth three shots adrift of Ikeda. PGA TOUR rookie Sung Joon Park shared 16th place at 2-under 278. World No. 2 Adam Scott placed T38 at 4-over 284. Ikeda will be making his fourth appearance in the season's third major and his second at St. Andrews (2010, MC). In his last start, he tied for 38th at Royal St. George's in 2011.

Mikko Ilonen turned down Henrik Stenson 3 and 1 in the finale of the Volvo World Match Play Championship at The London Golf Club in England.

The Finn went bogey-free over 17 holes and picked off five birdies, including a 3 at the 17th hole to secure his fifth title on the European Tour. He won five holes earlier in the match, two of which with pars. Stenson drew first blood with a birdie at the par-3 fourth, but Ilonen squared it with a par at the par-4 fifth. The eventual champ took the lead he wouldn't relinquish with a birdie-2 at No. 8. In a format that serves as a template for the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, Ilonen survived his pool that included Graeme McDowell, Joost Luiten and Alexander Levy. Luiten handed Ilonen his only loss of the week with a 1-up survival in the opener. Ilonen went on to conquer Victor Dubuisson in the quarterfinals and avenge Luiten in this morning's semis. Ilonen is now exempt into the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational.

Cameron Percy stubbed his toe with a 3-over-par 35-39=74 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and missed the 54-hole cut by a stroke at 3-under 210.

That means that a player making the cut on the number needed to shoot a 2-under 69 just to earn a final-round tee time. The best finish of Percy's career came at TPC Summerlin in 2010, when he lost to Jonathan Byrd in the epic playoff that ended with a hole-in-one by Byrd. Joining Percy on the sidelines on Sunday are Tommy Gainey (210), Camilo Villegas (210), Padraig Harrington (211), D.A. Points (211), John Peterson (211), Zachary Blair (211) and Stuart Appleby (217).

Jim Herman earned a career-best 9-under-par 30-32=62 in his bogey-free third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open and vaulted inside the top 10 at 11-under 202.

Not bad for a guy who made the cut on the number and began his day on the back nine at TPC Summerlin. Herman picked up four birdies and a 47'1" eagle on the par-5 16th to start his round, and then added three more birdies on the front. His 13'11" birdie on the par-4 seventh was his only birdie that fell from outside of 10 feet, as proximity was clearly a key to his round. He landed 16 GIR and his strokes gained: tee-to-gree was over four strokes and his strokes gained: putting was better than two strokes. Needless to say, he was nearly flawless.

Ben Martin fired a 9-under-par 32-30=62 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open to take the 54-hole lead at 17-under 196.

The Clemson product's round tied his opening round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans for the lowest of his career. It featured 10 birdies to just one bogey at TPC Summerlin. His stats back up that the round wasn't a fluke, as Martin landed 17 GIR and gained well over four strokes with the flat stick. Four of those birdies dropped from longer than 14 feet, while two stood above the pack. His 47'5" birdie at the par-4 10th is the obvious highlight, but his round opened with a 23'9" birdie at the par-4 first which laid the groundwork for what was to come. He will try and leave Las Vegas with the first PGA TOUR win of what looks to be a solid career in the making.
Oct 18 - 7:26 PM

Brooks Koepka crafted a 7-under-par 30-34=64 in the third round of the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

It isn't often a guy can record two eagles in the same round, but that is exactly what happened for Koepka at TPC Summerlin on Saturday. His first came from 35 inches on the par-5 ninth hole, while his second occurred after driving the green on the par-4 15th and converting a 14'11" eagle putt. Of his five birdies, only his 20'1" effort on the par-4 seventh was of note. The Florida State product's round wasn't perfect, as he surrendered a pair of bogeys. He enters the final round at 12-under 201 and is in search of his first PGA TOUR win.
