Graeme McDowell did it yet again, this time in 21 holes over Hunter Mahan in the Snead Bracket in today's third round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

G-Mac has led for all of three holes all week, but they're only that have mattered. After final-hole heroics on Wednesday and Thursday, and sitting 2 down through 16 holes today, he closed regulation par-birdie to force sudden death. A long-range par conversion at the 20th hole (the par-4 second) set the tone for a mid-range attempt that disappeared for birdie at the par-4 third and sent Mahan packing. Rookie participant Victor Dubuisson better be ready for anything in Saturday's quarterfinal against his fellow European.

Sebastian L. Saavedra turned in a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-34=64 in today's open qualifier for the Barracuda Championiship at Hidden Valley Country Club in Reno, Nevada, to earn medalist honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

The 28-year-old Argentine missed the cut in his PGA TOUR debut six weeks ago at the Travelers Championship where he also four-spotted. Today's experience was arguably more memorable. After opening with a par at the par-4 10th, he birdied the par-4 11th, and then jarred his tee ball at the par-3 12th for an ace. He chased it with yet another birdie at the par-4 13th, and would go on to circle four more. Kevin Lucas also went bogey-free, but managed only six birdies for a share of runner-up honors at 6-under 32-34=66. He'll be making his first PGA TOUR start this week, as will Jesse Schutte, who carded 6-under 34-32=66 with an eagle (at the par-5 18th) and six birdies against two bogeys. Stuart L. Smith signed for a 6-under 32-34=66 (7 birdies, 1 bogey) today to secure his fourth TOUR appearance. He's yet to make a cut. The field at Montrêux Golf and Country Club is now complete at 132.

Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational due to personal reasons, according to USATODAY's Steve DiMeglio on Twitter.

DJ's history of withdrawals is well-documented, and he's entitled not to compete for whatever reason, but he'll be a notable absentee nonetheless. Expect an update prior to next week's PGA Championship. UPDATE: It took nearly an hour after DiMeglio's scoop, but Johnson has been removed from the published field.

Paul McGinley and Tom Watson are listed in the published field for the PGA Championship at Valhalla in two weeks.

Jarrod Lyle spun a 2-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic to tie for 11th at 11-under 273.

Considering this was his first action in the United States following his most recent bout with leukemia, the week was a rousing success. His ball-striking was superb as he led the tournament in greens in regulation at 80.56 percent and tied for second in driving accuracy at 78.57 percent. His 1.81 putting average was the only thing holding him back. Keep an eye on him in his two remaining rehab starts on the Web.com Tour. It's not out of the question for him to crack the top 75 on the money list, thus earning a spot in the Web.com Finals without the need for a medical exception to qualify.

Zack Sucher signed for a 1-over-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the Midwest Classic to secure his first Web.com Tour title by three strokes at 19-under 265.

While Sucher's five bogeys outpaced his four birdies at Nicklaus GC at LionsGate on Sunday, he did enough damage during his first three rounds to hold off all comers. The biggest news for the University of Alabama-Birmingham product is what this means for his future. Entering the week 20th on the money list, he now moves to fourth place. With the season quickly nearing completion, he is a lock to become a PGA TOUR rookie in 2014-15.

Ben Martin has qualified for his first appearance in the PGA Championship.

The PGA of America uses a special money list from which the top 70 gain entry into the field of 156 at Valhalla in two weeks. Using earnings from the concurrent WGC-Bridgestone and Barracuda Championship in 2013 through this weekend's RBC Canadian Open, Martin placed 68th. He was one of 29 exempt via this conduit specifically. The others: Jordan Spieth (second); Sergio Garcia (12th); Rickie Fowler (18th); Graham DeLaet (19th); Gary Woodland (20th); Kevin Na (28th); Bill Haas (37th); Luke Donald (40th); Charley Hoffman (41st); George McNeill (43rd); Charles Howell III (44th); Nick Watney (45th); Ryan Palmer (48th); Hunter Mahan (49th); Will MacKenzie (50th); Ian Poulter (52nd); Chris Stroud (53rd); Billy Horschel (54th); Erik Compton (56th); K.J.

Tim Clark bombarded the back nine at Royal Montreal Golf Club's Blue Course en route to a 5-under-par 35-30=65 and earn a one-shot victory over Jim Furyk at the RBC Canadian Open.

Playing in the final threesome, Clark shook out the nerves early as he bogeyed the par-4 first before playing the remainder blemish-free 6-under. He converted five of his birdies on his inward side, including rolls of 24'8", 10 feet and 14'9" at Nos. 11, 15 and 17, respectively. The South African stepped onto the 18th tee box with a one-shot lead over Jim Furyk and stuck to his rep as a fairways-and-green specialist, allowing him a two-putt for the win at 17-under 263. In typical Clark fashion, he led the field in fairways hits this week (47 of 56) and landed 52 greens in regulation. This is his second career victory on the PGA TOUR. It exempts him into this week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational and the PGA Championship in two weeks.

Justin Hicks finished strong at the RBC Canadian Open with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 to post 13-under 267, four strokes adrift of champion Tim Clark.

Hicks got back on track today after a slight setback in the third round. He had his A-game from the beginning, rolling in back-to-back birdies from outside nine feet on the second and third holes. He would tally five more birdies, including a pair from 13-16 feet at Nos. 15 and 17, while giving just one back (at the par-3 13th). While he didn't win, Hicks' career-tying low yielded his career-low finish on the PGA TOUR.

Dicky Pride dismantled Royal Montreal with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 to post 10-under 270, good for a share of sevneth place.

Pride went out with the first threesome and posted he low round of the day. Precision was the mantra and he split all 14 fairways and missing just three greens in regulation. Today's aggregate not only ties his career low (third round, 2009 U.S. Bank Championship), but it equals the course record at Royal Montreal Golf Club's Blue Course. He's the third to sign for a 63 and the fifth in history. His T7 is his first top 25 on the PGA TOUR since a T5 at last year's Barracuda Championship. Pride now sits 177th in FedExCup points.

With a par on the only hole of sudden death, David Horsey emerged with the victory at the M2M Russian Open.

The Englishman served as the tournament's outright leader after both 18 and 36 holes. He co-led following 54 holes with Peter Whiteford of Scotland. Horsey then closed with an even-par 36-36=72 that featured a chip-in for eagle at the par-5 17th. (Whiteford blew up for a 3-over 38-37=75 to finish alone in fifth place.) With the door open, Ireland's Damien McGrane capitalized, carding a 6-under 33-33=66, but walked off with a bogey-5 at 18 to initiate the playoff. Alas, McGrane failed to get up and down from a greenside bunker on the same hole in it, allowing Horsey to take the title with a par. It's Horsey's third European Tour victory, his first since 2011. "I didn’t play that great today – it was a bit scrappy and I wasn’t holing the putts – but I managed to get the job done in the end," he surmised.

Jim Furyk kept the pedal down with a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his third round of the RBC Canadian Open to secure overnight possession of the 54-hole lead.

Furyk has now gone 50 straight holes without a bogey at Royal Montreal. The only square on his scorecard remains around a 5 at fourth hole on Thursday. He could do no wrong today, as every time things looked to be slipping away he would recover from trouble. The key par save came at the par-4 11th where he overshot the green by 30 yards, only to skip a wedge to 14'1" that he ultimately sank. That was just one of his four putts on the day that were rolled in from outside of nine feet. Furyk currently sits three shots ahead of his nearest competitor, Tim Clark. Because of the threat of inclement weather on Sunday, golfers are scheduled to go out in threesomes off split tees beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET. The final group will begin at approximately 10:00 a.m.
