Jordan Spieth tossed aside Matt Kuchar 2 and 1 in the Player Bracket in the third round of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship.

It's not unfair to say that Spieth is on the learning curve, but he plays like he doesn't care. Week in and week out, he's proven to be one of the best scorers, evidence not only of his talent but that he has virtually no memory of failure, or at least that it influences his next shot. In today's all-American tilt, he buried nine birdies and played 17 holes in 6-under-par. Kuchar scored 3-under and won four holes, but Spieth picked off five of his six holes with birdies. It's the kind of attack for which we had hoped and selfishly expected in his debut at Dove Mountain. The 20-year-old will square off against Ernie Els, 44, in Saturday's quarterfinal.

Branden Grace coasted to a seven-stroke, wire-to-wire victory at the Alfred Dunhill Championship at Leopard Creek Country Club in his native South Africa.

The 25-year-old opened with a bogey-free, 10-under-par 62, and then added respective rounds of 66, 72 and 68 to post 20-under 268. Fellow South African Louis Oosthuizen was the lone runner-up. "It’s special to win it wire-to-wire, more so because it’s in front of a local crowd," Grace said on Sunday. For the week, he totaled 27 birdies against seven bogeys. "It was a pretty flawless round today and the perfect way to finish off an incredible tournament - a great week in the office." He's arguably best known for winning five times around the world. Four of those titles occurred on the European Tour. His win on Sunday is his first anywhere since and fifth career on the circuit.

David Lipsky clinched victory in the Order of Merit on the Asian Tour with one tournament yet to be contested.

He won't need to sweat out the results of next week's Dubai Open, which has a purse of just $500,000, $90K of which going to the winner. With $713,901 in the bank through the Thailand Golf Championship, Lipsky is $111,068 clear of Anirban Lahiri in second place. The 25-year-old American won the Omega European Masters in early September. His haul from that landmark title contributes 70.6 percent of his season's earnings. "This win means a lot to me and I’m feeling a lot of pride," he said. "This is something which I aspired to do. Winning a co-sanction event and doing all this in one year is something which was unexpected because I did it so fast but now I know that if I play well, I can compete against the best." He'll test his talent with debuts at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and The Open Championship in 2015, both perks for winning the Order of Merit.

Marcus Fraser shared runner-up honors at the Thailand Golf Championship, tops among four golfers to earn exemptions into The Open Championship in July.

The top four, not otherwise exempt into the season's third major, inside the top 12 at Amata Spring Country Club secured tee times at St. Andrews. Lee Westwood, who won the inaugural edition of the event in Thailand, clipped Fraser and Martin Kaymer by one stroke this time around. The Aussie will be making his fifth appearance in The Open and second at St. Andrews (2005). Fellow Australian Scott Hend took outright fifth today to grab the second ticket to Scotland. The former PGA TOUR member has been on some kind of run in recent months, picking off five top 10s worldwide, including a win in Hong Kong. He missed the cut in his only previous Open try (2005). India's Anirban Lahiri and Jonathan Moore of the U.S. shared sixth place to round out the qualifiers. Lahiri is 1-for-2 at The Open Championship while Moore will be making his debut.

With his victory at the Australian PGA Championship, Greg Chalmers finished atop the Order of Merit on the PGA Tour of Australasia to earn an exemption into the 2015 World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

It took seven holes of a three-way playoff at RACV Royal Pines Resort, but the lefty outlasted Wade Ormsby (eliminated after three holes) and Adam Scott to clinch victory at the top spot in earnings. Chalmers didn't make his season debut on the circuit until the Perth International in late October. The money leader also earns exemption into The Open Championship, but Chalmers had already secured that with a solo fourth at the Australian Open two weeks ago. American golf fans can take for granted berths into the WGCs, but they are a big deal abroad, evidenced with Steven Jeffress securing the second of two on the table in the Order of Merit. On the strength of a win at the Fiji International in mid-August, the 39-year-old Aussie is also headed to Trump National Doral in early March. In his only start to date on the PGA TOUR, he missed the cut at the 2013 Open Championship.

Cameron Tringale teamed up with Jason Day to win the Franklin Templeton Shootout at 32-under-par, edging out Harris English and Matt Kuchar by a stroke.

This is not an official event, so there were no FedExCup points awarded and the victory for Tringale and Day is not considered official and has no impact on status. Tringale has never won on the PGA TOUR, but did pick up a pair of top-30 finishes to kick off his 2014-15 PGA TOUR campaign to go with two missed cuts. He ranks 88th in the FEC standings.

Patrick Reed remains committed to this week's Franklin Templeton Shootout after his wife, Justine, experienced a grand mal seizure on Tuesday in Naples, Florida.

Justine was at the Ritz-Carlton Resort where the situation could have been much worse. Patrick said the following in a statement: "I withdrew from [Wednesday's] pro-am to be with my wife, Justine, who suffered a grand mal seizure (Tuesday) afternoon while in the bathtub. We are really fortunate that she is OK and lucky that I was in the room with her to save her from drowning. I am so grateful to the paramedic team, IMG and the doctors at Naples Community Hospital for their support and care during an extremely difficult time." Justine was released from the hospital last night. She gave birth to the couple's first child on May 22 and was slated to caddie for her husband in the 12-team competition hosted by Greg Norman. Instead, and sensibly, Patrick will employ a local caddie.

Stuart Appleby is not scheduled to compete in this week's Australian PGA Championship.

It's unknown exactly when he withdrew, but the tournament doesn't begin until Thursday, Dec. 11, so he's been replaced. He was a scratch at the Emirates Australian Open two weeks ago due to a back injury. No news has surfaced to help add detail to his discomfort and Appleby hasn't posted anything relevant on Twitter.
Dec 9 - 6:30 PM

Chris Kirk withdrew from the Franklin Templeton Shootout due to a wrist injury.

The format features 12 teams of two. Harris English and Matt Kuchar are defending their title. Kirk, who placed 16th at the 18-man Hero World Challenge on Sunday, was replaced by Patrick Reed at Tiburón Golf Club at The Ritz-Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida. Reed will partner with Brandt Snedeker. Kirk's next scheduled start would be the Hyundai Tournament of Champions on Jan. 9-12.

Jordan Spieth thrashed Isleworth Golf & Country Club to the tune of 26-under-par 66-67-63-66=262 to win the Hero World Challenge by 10 strokes.

Fresh off his impressive title at the Emirates Australian Open a week ago where he carved a 63 in challenging conditions in the final round to win by six, Spieth kept the pedal floored in the unofficial, 18-man money and Official World Rankings Points grab in Windermere, Florida. En route to the wire-to-wire title, he buried an eagle and 29 birdies against one bogey and two doubles. The 21-year-old played the par 5s in bogey-free 12-under. Henrik Stenson, also a winner in his last start (two weeks ago in Dubai), goes in the books as the forgotten runner-up at Isleworth. This is Spieth's third victory as a professional. He's projected to move back inside the top 10 of the OWGR in the next update.

For finishing a respective first and second in the Order of Merit on the Japan Golf Tour, Koumei Oda and Hiroyuki Fujita have earned exemptions into the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship and The Open Championship in 2015.

Oda cruised to the earnings title with over 137 million yen. It's the fifth time he's finished inside the top 10, but it's the first at the top. He won twice this season, added three runner-up finishes and yet another four top 10s The 36-year-old will be making his debut at Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course in early March, but his appearance in the season's third major will be his fifth. Fujita totaled over 116 million yen, over nine million more than Tomohiro Kondo in third place. Fujita, 45, picked off a circuit-high three wins this season and finished second once (to Oda) and had two other top 10s. He'll be making his second start in the WGC-Cadillac and sixth at The Open.

With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his final round of the Nedbank Golf Challenge, Danny Willett recorded a four-stroke victory over fellow Englishman Ross Fisher.

Both played the finale with a third Brit, Luke Donald, who was gunning to parlay the outright lead after 36 and 54 holes into a trophy ceremony today, but he closed with 1-over 36-37=73 to finish alone in third place six swings adrift of Willett. The 27-year-old buried six birdies in his first appearance at Gary Player Country Club in Sun City, South Africa, on Sunday. He totaled 21 birdies on the week to hide just three bogeys and posted 18-under 270. "South Africa is a place that's suited me in the past," said the champ. "I've played good golf down here, love the place, love the people, everything about it is great. It's been a truly fun test of golf." Willett started the week sitting 84th in the Official World Golf Ranking, but is projected to rise into the low 50s with the next update. Today's title exempts him into the 2015 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.
