Ryan Moore enjoyed a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in his third round of the CIMB Classic.

It moved the defending champ to 12-under 204 and into a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead. Today's walk around Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club feature seven birdies, only one of which on a par 5 (No. 5). He also penciled in a pair of bogey-5s, but co-leads the field with 17 birdies. Moore will wake up on Sunday attempting to become the first to successfully defend a PGA TOUR title since Tiger Woods won the 2013 Arnold Palmer Invitational.

Kevin Na spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 in his third round of the CIMB Classic to post 12-under 204, good for outright possession of the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Ryan Moore also carded a 67 on Saturday to earn a spot beside Na with the overnight lead.

Once again, we need to remind you that preferred lies have been in play all week and detailed statistics are not made available at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club, but nothing replaces a clean scorecard that leads to the lead on Saturday night. Na circled five birdies to total 16 through three rounds. He's swallowed only four bogeys and nothing worse. For a guy that arrived having gone WD-DQ the last two weeks, he's doing a terrific job in paying dividends to the faithful.

Lee Westwood toured Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club in bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the CIMB Classic.

The Brit opened with an even-par 72, so he needed to put it into high gear if he was going to make a run at the title. He opened birdie-birdie at Nos. 1 and 2, and then added a third at the par-3 eighth from short range. At the next par 3 -- the 226-yard 11th -- Westwood wielded a hybrid and holed the tee ball for an ace. (For the vid, click on the link below.) After waiting out the weather delay, he closed birdie-par-birdie and sits just three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

In the live telecast of the second round of the CIMB Classic, Golf Channel's Steve Sands said that Graham DeLaet's withdrawal after one hole in the opening round was due to a "bulging disc."

This is the first reported detail of DeLaet's back injury. He had surgery for a herniated disc on Jan. 3, 2010, and has dealt with mild aggravations since, but this week's WD was his first for the injury during a tournament in his career. Consider him an automatic question mark for next week's WGC-HSBC Champions. Warm, humid conditions similar to what the field is enduring in Kuala Lumpur do not aid a disc issue, so the weather is irrelevant to DeLaet's status moving forward.

Matt Jones rebounded from an opening 81 at the CIMB Classic to shoot 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round.

The Aussie squared five bogeys on Thursday, but it was the quintuple bogey-10 that he incurred at the fifth hole that left the greatest mark. With no cut this week, he was able to free-wheel it today and picked off six birdies to help offset three bogeys. At 6-over 150, he's 16 strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead, but at least he's no longer flirting with DFL.

Billy Hurley III tossed up another 5-under-par 67 in his second round of the CIMB Classic to post 10-under 134 at the midpoint, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Hurley III didn't go bogey-free like Thursday, but he picked off seven birdies to help hide a double bogey-6 at the second hole today. Going off in the first threesome off the 10th tee, he poured in six of his par breakers on his outward side en route to 6-under 30. Stats aren't kept for this tournament, but success is evident anywhere where a golfer has just one blemish through two rounds.
Oct 31 - 12:38 AM

Rikard Karlberg spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 in his opening round of the CIMB Classic to establish the overnight lead.

Conditions were ripe for scoring throughout his round. The Swede buried seven birdies, including five on his outward nine. He closed the round with birdies at 17 and 18. This isn't quite what most expected what with just one top 45 in his last four starts, but Karlberg shared fifth place at the Maybank Malaysian Open in April, so he not only has experience but success as well.

Graham DeLaet withdrew from the CIMB Classic during his opening round due to a back injury.

The Canadian bogeyed the par-4 first hole and called it quits. It's his second mid-tournament WD in 107 PGA TOUR starts, but both occurred in his last seven (flu; 2014 WGC-Bridgestone Invitational). If he's able, he'll try again at next week's WGC-HSBC Champions.

Bud Cauley is hoping to return to competition at the Puerto Rico Open on March 5-8.

Assuming his rehab from surgery for a torn labrum on his left shoulder (Sept. 12) goes smoothly, he's going to start hitting full shots in February. Cauley opened this season at the top of the Web.com Tour Finals category, but he won't be there come March. Two reshuffles will occur before then, so he'll be buried. He's probably snag a couple of sponsor exemptions for tournaments where his number won't qualify on merit, and he's certain to get a medical extension is he eventually needs it, but if he struggles early, he won't necessarily be eager to continue playing and burning up starts on a medical for 2015-16. That time will pass, so it's good to just know when we hope to see him again inside the ropes.

Overnight co-leader Will MacKenzie closed out The McGladrey Classic with a 2-under-par 33-35=68 to post 14-under 266 and join the playoff to determine the champion.

Robert Streb and Brendon de Jonge finished before him, but only MacKenzie has won a PGA TOUR event before, twice in fact. He hit 17 greens in regulation and converted three birdies today, the longest from 15-and-a-half feet at the par-4 eighth hole. He couldn't avoid a miscue, however, three-putting from just inside 80 feet at the par-4 16th. Regardless of what happens in the playoff, MacKenzie will procure his first top 25 since late March. Golf Channel's Gary Koch said during today's telecast that MacKenzie sat back and enjoyed his early-season success in 2013-14. It seems that the realization has paid dividends, especially for gamers that remained faithful entering the new season. PLAYOFF UPDATE: MacKenzie missed the fairway at the par-4 18th hole and found a greenside bunker on approach. His escape was below average in that he was still away at 32'7". A long par try missed on the high side. The other two parred to eliminate MacKenzie.

Brendon de Jonge defied his reputation in the final round of The McGladrey Classic with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 to reach 14-under 266 and sit on a share of the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

de Jonge should be proud of himself today. He's often the first to expect to fade when in contention on Sunday, but he opened birdie-birdie-birdie at Seaside to shake away the demons. The third birdie of that run dropped in from 19'11" at the par-3 third hole. He added birdies from 12'4" and 40'9" at Nos. 10 and 12, respectively, before parring the last six. de Jonge dealt with injury during the 2013-14 season and hadn't finished inside the top 30 in his last 10 starts, so go ahead and make a note that he's, indeed, a horse for this week's host track. PLAYOFF UPDATE: After a textbook par at the par-4 18th hole to extend the playoff, he landed his tee ball safely and pin-high on the green at the par-3 17th, albeit some distance from the cup. After watching eventual champ Robert Streb cover the flag stick, de Jonge's run at birdie burned the right edge. He settled for his second runner-up finish in 213 PGA TOUR starts, but this was his first playoff.
