Ernie Els continues his navigation of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship with a 4-and-2 win over Jordan Spieth in the Player Bracket in the quarterfinals.

Basically an underdog entering his match with the youngster, Els caught Spieth on the right day of the week and took full advantage. Spieth's poor Saturday performances on the West Coast Swing have potentially cost him the chance for multiple wins already this season. The good news for Els, who never trailed, is that he broke par for the first time all week. The Big Easy also showed a penchant for holing mid-range putts throughout the round, which could serve him well as he prepares for a semifinal bout with the winner of the Victor Dubuisson and Graeme McDowell match.

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.

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.

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.

PGA TOUR and Greenbrier Resort officials announced today that The Greenbrier Classic, scheduled for July 7-10, has been cancelled due to the devastating flooding caused by record rainfalls throughout West Virginia.

"We are heartbroken by the devastation that the residents of West Virginia are experiencing at this time and the reports of lives lost due to the terrible flooding," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem. The press release also mentioned that The Old White TPC, host course for the tournament, suffered extensive damage from the flooding and is beyond reasonable repair to conduct the tournament, TOUR officials said. Danny Lee would have been the defending champion after winning last year's edition in a four-man playoff to claim his first TOUR title in his 98th career start.

The third day of the BMW International Open at Gut Larchenhof was more or less a non-starter, as the leading 20 golfers never even teed off.

Play was suspended at 12 noon and the players never returned to the course. Just four hours and nine minutes of play was possible on day three. Round 3 will restart at 7.30am with the same order maintained for Round 4 but playing in threeballs. Henrik Stenson, Raphael Jacquelin and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, the 36-hole leaders, are scheduled to be the last group teeing off for their final rounds at 1.30pm.

World No. 62 Ryan Palmer fizzled out to a 5-over-par 38-38=76 during round two of the Quicken Loans National, finishing at 3-over 145 to miss the cut by three strokes.

Palmer entered the event as the 14th-highest rated golfer in the field according to the Official World Golf Ranking, but there is a reason the game is not played on paper. Palmer missed eight (of 14) fairways, found the water twice, and lost -3.554 strokes around-the-green during today's round. Palmer is one of the most consistent golfers on TOUR (52-for-62 since start of 2013-14) but not immune to missed cuts. A total of 78 golfers made it through the cut line at even-par 142 but other notables joining Palmer with early trunk slams include: 143- Defending champ Troy Merritt... 144- Luke List; Si Woo Kim; Tim Wilkinson... 145- Jordan Niebrugge; Vaughn Taylor... 146- Russell Henley; Rory Sabbatini (return from neck surgery)... 147- Adam Hadwin

Billy Hurley III scorched Congressional Country Club with a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in round two of the Quicken Loans National, giving him a piece of the 36-hole lead at 11-under 131.

BH3 is taking full advantage of local knowledge here at Congressional CC, gaining 7.980 strokes over the field with his approach game thus far. With his irons dialed in, it's just a matter of making some putts and that's exactly what he did today after missing his fair share on day one. During round two, he splashed home four putts from outside eight feet, the longest being a 13'8" birdie roll at the par-5 ninth hole. Gamers who followed the local or course history narratives are getting rewarded handsomely through two rounds. The Annapolis, Maryland, resident entered the week ranked 198th in the FedExCup race, but we can throw any notion of form out the window this week as Hurley III clearly loves the layout at Congressional.

Overnight leader Jon Rahm kept his foot on the gas with a 4-under-par 32-35=67 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, grabbing a piece of the 36-hole lead with Billy Hurley III at 11-under 131.

The ASU standout making his first start as a professional is showing no signs of nerves. On day one he flashed his brilliance on the greens and today he gained 3.831 strokes tee-to-green. Most notable were back-to-back iron shots that he stuck to inside five inches for tap-in birdies. The first was a 138-yard tee shot at the par-4 third and the second was from 168 yards at the par-4 fourth. Rahm is showcasing a versatile game, carding just two bogeys through his first 36 holes as a professional golfer. Hurley III and Rahm are three clear of the field as we head into the weekend at Congressional Country Club.
