Adam Scott settled for a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in the third round of the Arnold Palmer Invitational, with his lead now three strokes at 15-under 201.

Scott entered the day seven clear of the field, but a bogey on the first hole had him backpedaling from the start. After a second bogey at the par-4 fifth, he shook off the cobwebs with a birdie at the par-5 sixth. He heated up on the back nine with birdies on the 10th, 13th, 15th and 16th, while surrendering bogeys on 14 and 17. He made a key 7'4" par putt to end his day. He'll get to play the final 18 with Keegan Bradley giving him the stink eye as his nearest competitor.

An 18th hole birdie allowed Alvaro Quiros to grab the solo 54-hole lead in the Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco; his level-par round of 36-36=72 giving him a total of 7-under 209 and a one shot advantage over Mikko Ilonen, Christian Bezuidenhout, Alex Levy and Erik Van Rooyen.

The Spaniard calmly two-putted that 54th hole having lashed two shots to the green of the 575-yard par-5 to smarten up a card that was hard working after the glory of the first two days. He made front nine errors at the first and seventh, making up for them in-between at the third and sixth. Five pars followed before he started the up and down mode again. There were dropped shots at 13 and 16, birdies at 15 and that last hole. He is 4-for-6 with 54-hole leads and 4-for-5 when they are of the solo kind. "It was a little like Russian Roulette," he said afterwards. "I hit many good shots and the ball ran out to funny places because of the pin positions. But they didn't move for me! Everyone else played them."

World No. 10 Sergio Garcia sleepwalked to a even-par 38-34=72 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open and at 2-over 146, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 80 pros from a field of 156 pros made the 36-hole cut of 1-over 145 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Garcia, the top-ranked OWGRer and pre-tourney fave outright (14/1), opened with an indifferent one-birdie, three-bogey 74 and cancelled three birdies with three bogeys on Day 2. His four total birdies ranked a dismal 121st and was 97th in SG: Putting (-0.797) and 98th in SG: Approach (-0.529). This was the transplanted Texan's 44th MC on TOUR in 329 events and misses consecutive cuts (Masters) for the first time since the 2004 Open and PGA Championships. Other notable early exits include: 146- Pat Perez; Luke List .. 147- Ryan Palmer; Kevin Na; Scott Piercy .. 148- J.B. Holmes; Adam Scott; Shubhankar Sharma .. 152 Jhonattan Vegas.

Luke List arrived at the Valero Texas Open with some of the best form in the field but leaves with a sour taste in his mouth after rounds of 72-74=146 (+2) which places him one stroke outside of the cut line after 36 holes.

List was among the most popular plays in all fantasy formats this week. A large part of that was due to his torrid form entering the event. He had rattled off top 30s in eight straight stroke-play events. List had positioned himself T37 or better after 30 of his last 32 rounds before this week, avoiding any kind of cut sweats for the most part. That wasn't the case this week at TPC San Antonio. A small part of it was due to his tee-time draw, getting the short end of the stick by starting on Thursday morning. Looking at the top of the leaderboard, only three of the top 12 on the leaderboard came from his half of the draw. List walked off the property losing 5.454 strokes approaching-the-green and he lost another 2.194 strokes with the putter. He is not in the field for next week's team event.

Making his professional debut, sponsor invite and World No. 1543 Joaquin Niemann navigated a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open for a 36-hole tally of 2-under 142, up 10 places to T25 with play winding down.

The former No. 1-ranked amateur in the world chased an opening even-par 72 (three birdies, one bogey, one double bogey-6) with five circles against three squares on Day 2. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 1.183 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.676 around-the-green. Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 19-year-old squared bogeys at 13, 1 and 7 (failed scrambles), offset by birdies at 11, 14, 15, 8 and 9. His split included three conversions from between 19 and 44 feet, adding a 14-footer from the fringe at nine for a walk-off 3. The newly signed PING staffer recorded 1.636 putts per GIR and 1.152 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 114 Andrew Landry styled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open to reach 8-under 136, up four places to T3, one short of 36-hole co-leaders Zach Johnson and Ryan Moore.

This is the Texan's 13th start of the season and the third time he's been in the top 10 thru 36 holes. He was T6 at the RSM, eventually finishing T4, and led the CareerBuilder six starts ago (63-65), eventually finishing a career-best P2 to Jon Rahm (70-68). The second-year man hit seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.499 strokes approaching-the-green and 2.578 tee-to-green. He opened with bogey-5 at 10 but then played his final 17 holes in bogey-free 6-under, circling 11, 13, 17, 2, 5 and 8, two from between 13 and 16 feet. The Arkansas alum posted 1.571 putts per GIR and 2.451 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

World No. 395 David Hearn navigated a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open to post 6-under 138, up nine places on the live leaderboard to T3, three in arrears of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Ryan Moore. UPDATE: With R2 complete, Hearn is T5.

Playing this season in conditional status, the 38-year-old got in this week as an alternate. It's his seventh VTO, sixth at TPC San Antonio. Hearn's results in the Texas Hill Country are mixed (and alternating), missing cuts in 2011, 2013 and 2017, and finishing T11 in 2012 and T13 in 2016. The Wyoming alum checked in at 178th in the FedExCup standings with four made cuts on the season and one top 25 (T17, RSM). He's missed five cuts, including by 10 at last week's Heritage (81-71). The Canadian opened with a three-birdie, one-bogey 70 and carded five circles on Day 2 against a lone bogey-5 at hole 1. He gained 3.603 strokes on-the-green with 24 total putts, including two conversions from between 17 and 37 feet.

Brooks Koepka plans to return from a long injury layoff, setting his eyes on next week's team event, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Koepka was last seen at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, finishing last in the field. A torn tendon in his left wrist was the culprit that caused the decline in play and forced him to the sidelines. According to Doug Ferguson of the AP, he also underwent a treatment that injected some bone marrow from his hip into the wrist. Koepka was in a soft cast for two months of that 15-week layoff. Easing into action, the defending U.S. Open champ will make his first appearance at next week's team event, choosing Marc Turnesa as his playing partner. Koepka made this a family affair last year, finishing T5 while tag-teaming with his brother, Chase.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, past champ and World No. 101 Martin Laird styled a 7-under-par 30-35=65 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open to reach 6-under 138, up 61 spots on the live leaderboard to T3, three adrift of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Ryan Moore. UPDATE: With R2 complete, Laird is T5.

The 2013 winner reeled off six birdies in his last nine holes, including five straight at 1-5, which ties a career best. In total, he racked up nine circles on 14 greens in regulation with 26 total putts, and matched the low round of the day thus far with Johnson. It's also a season low for the 35-year-old (35 rounds), eclipsing 67 (x3), most recently in R1 at last week's Heritage. On 10 (of 14) fairways, he gained 1.224 strokes off-the-tee and 2.048 approaching-the-green, and squared two bogeys at 12 (failed scramble) and 18 (3-putt from 25'9"). The Scottsdale resident kicked off with a four-birdie, five-bogey 73.

Ryan Moore stayed in sharpshooter mode today as he twirled a second straight bogey-free round, this time signing for a 5-under-par 34-33=67 to claim a piece of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead on 9-under 135, joining Zach Johnson. UPDATE: This is Moore's first lead/co-lead after ANY round since being T1 thru 18 holes at the 2017 WGC-Mexico 27 starts ago.

Moore was never flirting with the course record today but he was on cruise control throughout the round. After splitting 13 (of 14) fairways in R1, he found 12 more fairways today. From there, he attacked to land 15 greens in regulation. His putter provided the final blow, draining five birdies, three from outside nine feet. If you're nitpicking, he did miss on a trio of chances in the 8-to-13 foot range but you can't expect to make them all. With a T18 and T8 in his last two visits, he clearly likes the layout here at TPC San Antonio. If this co-lead holds it will be his seventh career 36-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR. He has converted 2-of-6 into wins. Moore signed for one of just two bogey-free rounds on Thursday which goes to show just how impressive this is to be bogey-free through 36 holes.

World No. 58 Zach Johnson bombarded the AT&T Oaks Course at TPC San Antonio, cruising to a 7-under-par 34-31=65 during the second round of the Valero Texas Open, staking a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead alongside Ryan Moore (9-under 135). UPDATE: This is Johnson's ninth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 372 events, previously 2-for-8 converting those into victories. Both of those "Ws" were when sole leader at the midpoint. His 65 was later matched for the low round of the week by past champion Martin Laird.

Johnson was 3-over thru 11 holes to start his week, looking like a potential early trunk slam. Instead, he rattled off nine birdies and two eagles over his next 25 holes to vault his name to the top of the leaderboard. Only two of his conversions today came from outside nine feet which tells you how good his tee-to-green play was today. The highlight of his round came at the par-4 5th where he holed out from the greenside bunker for an untraditional eagle. He needed a birdie at the last to tie the course record but missed a short one to swallow his first bogey of the day. ZJ is a two-time winner at this event but neither came at TPC San Antonio. Playing his 18th round at the course, this beats his previous best by three shots (68, R2/2010). If this holds it will be his first 36-hole lead/co-lead since the 2015 Tournament of Champions.
Apr 20 - 2:08 PM

World No. 154 Chris Kirk painted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open for a 36-hole total of 5-under 139, up 60 places on the live leaderboard to T4, four back of clubhouse leader Zach Johnson, who shot 65. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Kirk is T8, four back of Johnson and Ryan Moore.

This is the 32-year-old's fourth VTO with two prior top-15 finishes and one missed cut last year by two shots (75-71). His best is T8 in 2015 and also posted a T13 in 2016. The Georgia alum checked in this week 11-for-15 on the season with four top 25s and two top 10s. The most recent of any of those was 13th at Arnie's Invite three starts ago. Kirk opened with an up-and-down 73 (three birdies, four bogeys) but carded six circles on Day 2 on 12 greens in regulation for 2.402 SG: Putting at last glance. Five of his conversions were from inside of 11 feet and walked off with a birdie-bomb at the par-5 18th from 43'1" for 24 total putts.
