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.

Shane Lowry makes his way back to Firestone Country Club in attempt to defend his throne at this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Lowry found himself in a difficult situation this week. As the defending champion, it's almost an unwritten rule that you return to defend. However, his runner-up finish at the U.S. Open catapulted him up the European Tour Ryder Cup Rankings, currently 11th place. With the 100th Open de France giving up 2x Ryder Cup points, it would have been easy for Lowry to bail and head to Paris. Instead, he'll be collecting an easy paycheck this week and gets the opportunity to increase his position in the FedExCup standings (currently 75th). Lowry owns just four top 25s in 12 starts this season but gamers can just look at last year's leaderboard if they need a reminder of his upside this week.

Joey Garber was one of four open qualifiers for this week's Barracuda Championship, signing for a 6-under-par 32-34=66 at Hidden Valley Country Club in Reno, Nevada to punch his ticket.

The Georgia Bulldog finished his amateur career in 2014. He was ranked 31st in the WAGR at the time. More recently he was seen posting a T45 at the Cape Breton Celtic Classic in September, a Mackenzie Tour Event north of the border. He was 3-for-9 playing on the Canadian circuit last season. This will be his second career PGA TOUR start (MC, 2014 Travelers Championship). Three others earned their way into this week's Barracuda Championship: 66-Geoff Gonzalez; Elliott Paylor... 67-Hunter Stewart (Survived 3-for-1 playoff with Martin Trainer and David Gazzolo). All four will be making their tournament debuts at the Barracuda Championship.

J.J. Henry turns his attention to MontrĂȘux Golf and Country Club ahead of this week's Barracuda Championship, arriving as the defending champion and tournament's career money leader.

Henry is just 12-for-19 on the season, ranking 175th in the FedExCup race. While concerning, it's important to remember he had missed 11 cuts in 25 starts leading into his 2015 victory at the Barracuda. He was 150th in the FEC standings at the time. Last year wasn't the first taste of success at this event, as Henry is 9-for-11 with five top 10s, including two victories. Both of his wins have come since the event switched to Modified Stableford Scoring in 2012. The long track record of success makes Henry a very appealing option this week in Reno.

Sponsor invite Jon Rahm conjured up a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in the final round of the Quicken Loans National to wrap his tournament and pro debut on 13-under 271, good for a two-way T3, four swings shy of fellow sponsor invite and champion Billy Hurley III.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome with 2013 champ Bill Haas, the 21-year-old began the finale on 12-under and in solo third, three back of Hurley III. He led outright after the week's low round of 64 and co-led thru 36 holes with a second-round 67. The former ASU standout played the weekend in twin 70s to record four red numbers and after taking home low am honors at last week's U.S. Open with T23, he nabs one (of four) spots available this week at Congressional to The Open Championship in three weeks, where he'll make his tournament debut. The two-time Ben Hogan Award winner totaled 20 birdies for the week against seven bogeys en route to his best finish on TOUR in just his sixth career start, supplanting T5 at the 2015 Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Overnight leader and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III steadied a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in today's final round of the Quicken Loans National for a 72-hole aggregate of 17-under 267, good for a three-shot win over Hall of Famer Vijay Singh and his first PGA TOUR title in his 104th career start.

The Naval Academy grad and 607th-ranked player in the world co-led thru 36 holes after opening his fifth appearance in 66-65, and took a two-shot lead into the finale over Hall of Famer and playing competitor Ernie Els after a third-round 67. He went out in 1-under, erasing bogey at the second with birdies on Nos. 1 and 9, but Els had climbed to within one at the break. The 34-year-old 3-putted the par-4 12th (from 28 feet) for bogey-5, but with the shot of his life, he pitched-in from 35 yards away at the 15th for birdie-3 and backed it up with a 27'3" birdie putt on the par-5 16th. Playing this season on conditional status, the Maryland resident is now fully exempt on TOUR thru the 2017-18 season and among other goodies, secures a spot in The Open Championship in three weeks at Royal Troon. He improves to 1-for-3 when the 36-hole leader/co-leader and 1-for-2 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

Hall of Famer and Life Member Vijay Singh smoothed a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in today's final round of the Quicken Loans National to post 14-under 270, up four places to solo second and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Singh finished in solo second, three back of champion and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III.

The 53-year-old, looking to become the oldest winner on TOUR ever, matched the low round of the day (with three others), circling seven birdies against a lone bogey on a failed scramble on the 71st hole. He bounced back with a 6'1" birdie on the 72nd hole for a walk-off 3 and record his best finish at the QLN, supplanting T7 in 2009, and his best lap in the tournament in his 32nd career round. The Big Fijian nets just his second top 10 of the season in 16 starts (T6, Honda), and if the runner-up holds, it'll be his 28th in 584 career events, first since the 2013-14 Frys.com Open. He'll also claim one of the four spots available this week to The Open Championship at Royal Troon, going to the top four finishers inside the top 12 and ties who were not already exempt.

Ollie Schniederjans crafted a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the final round of the Air Capital Classic to win his first Web.com Tour event in a playoff.

His 17-under 263 tally was matched by Collin Morikawa (a) and J.J. Spaun, but Schniederjans locked up a win with a birdie on the second playoff hole, which was the par-4 18th. Schniederjans has been eyed as a big prospect after completing a stellar amateur career at Georgia Tech and finishing T12 as an amateur at last year's Open Championship. With this victory, he moves to third on the Web.com Tour money list and essentially secures his 2016-17 PGA TOUR card. He will have considerable value to gamers when the page turns to the new TOUR season.

Henrik Stenson overcame a mid-round stumble to complete victory in the BMW International Open, eventually triumphing by 3 shots after a final round 1-under-par 37-34=71 gave him a total for the week of 17-under-par 271 at Gut Larchenhof.

The Swede headed into the final round with a 1 shot advantage and birdied the 1st hole to maintain the pace, but having made just 1 bogey in his first 57 holes he then made 4 in his next 7. A birdie at No. 5 did repair some of the damage but he was suddenly thrust into a battle when the final afternoon had briefly looked ready to become a procession. No matter: Stenson stamped his authority with red at 13, 15 and 17 to move away from the field as the winning line approached. He ended the week 3 shots clear of Darren Fichardt and Thorbjorn Olesen as he completed a second BMW International Open victory - and tenth of his European Tour career. "I really feel like I played well in 2015, I just couldn't get a trophy," he said afterwards. "It was a bit hard at times but you've just got to keep on trying and put yourself in position."

When the third round was finally completed on Sunday morning, after no action all Saturday afternoon, Henrik Stenson led Thorbjorn Olesen by 1 shot on 16-under-par 200 at the BMW International Open, with the field a further 4 shots adrift.

The Swede has made just one bogey all week at Gut Larchenhof, and in the third round he made 5 birdies to add to the 7 he made in round two and 5 on Thursday. His long game has been imperious as he has striped 36 of 42 fairways and missed just 5 greens in regulation through 54 holes; he's also saved par every time he has needed to scramble. His third round 5-under-par 34-33=67 leaves him one clear of his Danish rival, with Michael Lorenzo Vera, Darren Fichardt and Raphael Jacquelin on 11-under. The fourth round is being played immediately, with hopes to conclude it Sunday afternoon.

Hall of Famer Ernie Els painted a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National for a three-day tally of 13-under 200, up two spots to solo second, two swings shy of 54-hole leader Billy Hurley III.

The 46-year-old will be going for his 20th TOUR title in his 420th career start, first since the 2012 Open Championship, and will be in the final pairing on Sunday with Hurley III, who's chasing his maiden victory in his 104th career start. Els began Moving Day in a four-way T4 on 7-under and posted the round of the day with four birdies and a hole-out eagle-2 on the 12th from 157 yards away (video link below). He striped a week-best nine (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, posting a stellar 6.282 in SG: Total. The South African's split included an 18'2" birdie-2 at the seventh and a 23'8" roll on the par-4 14th that completed his scoring. He missed a couple of great chances on 15 and 16, both from inside of six feet, but otherwise recorded his third straight positive number with the flat stick.

Overnight co-leader and sponsor invite Billy Hurley III fashioned a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to post 15-under 198, good for a two-shot lead over Hall of Famer Ernie Els and breaking the previous 54-hole tournament record of 199 (Troy Merritt/Kevin Chappell, 2015).

The 34-year-old co-led with playing competitor Jon Rahm on 11-under after opening in 66-65. It was his third 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 104th career start, first since the 2014 Greenbrier where he eventually finished T4. The Maryland resident striped 10 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation, posting 3.670 in SG: Tee-to-Green. Thru 54 holes, he leads in the latter with a cumulative 13.547. Hurley III circled four, three from inside of nine feet with a long of 14'8" at the par-4 14th that completed his scoring. Playing this season on conditional status, he entered the week 198th in the FedExCup standings. His career best on TOUR is T4 two times, most recently T4 at the 2014 Greenbrier and also here in 2012.
