With a 5-under-par 31-35=66 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage, Scott Langley shares the clubhouse lead.

Since a solo third at Copperhead five weeks ago, Langley is 0-for-2. That mini-drought figures to end at Harbour Town where he hit 12 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies today. He holed six of them on the front nine, but the only of notable distance measured 17 feet at the par-3 14th. He also salvaged a par from 11'1" at 3.

Buoyed by a walk-off eagle-2 from 161 yards away (video link below), World No. 264 Brian Gay carded a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of The RSM Classic to steal solo 3rd on 16-under 266, five swings shy of overnight leader and champion Austin Cook.

The 44-year-old was sleepwalking on even-par thru 17 holes and in a five-way logjam at T4 before his final-hole heroics. After opening in 65-64-69, he began in solo 3rd, four back of playing competitor Cook, who shot 67. The Orlando resident conjured eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 2.604 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 4.350 approaching-the-green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 2 and 4 and ate double bogey-6 at 16 (tee ball OB), offset by two circles at 8 and 13 (from 47'11), and eagle-3 at 15 from 27 inches and the walk-off eagle. The Texas native posted 1.545 putts per GIR and 0.047 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. This was his sixth RSM, second top 25 and second top 10 (T4/2014), and his third top 25 of the season among three cashes in five starts, first top 10.

World No. 164 J.J. Spaun twirled a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round of The RSM Classic to finish up his second appearance (T57/2017) on 17-under 265, up two places to solo 2nd, four shy of overnight leader and champion Austin Cook.

This is a career-best finish for the 27-year-old and his first runner-up in 36 career events. It's his fifth career top 10, replacing a previous-best T4 at the 2017 WM Phoenix Open, and his second of the season in five starts (T10, Shriners). After kicking off in 67-70-62, the SDSU alum began solo 4th on 13-under, five back of Cook. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, gaining 1.347 strokes off-the-tee and 0.736 approaching-the-green. The Californian squared two bogeys at 11 and 17, outpaced by six circles at 6, 7, 9, 10, 16 and 18, two from between 13 and 18 feet. He recorded 1.625 putts per GIR and 0.916 SG: Putting with 30 total putts.

Making his tournament debut, overnight leader and PGA TOUR rookie Austin Cook hung up a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the final round of The RSM Classic to reach 21-under 261, good for a four-shot win over J.J. Spaun and his first TOUR title in his 14th career start.

The 26-year-old, a pre-tourney 80/1 outright, wins in his fourth start as a member. He's now 4-for-4 on the season, records his third top 25 and first top 10, brushing aside a previous-best T20 at the Shriners two starts ago. The Arkansas alum, who arrived off T50 at the OHL, records his third career top-10 finish, replacing a previous-best T6 at the 2015 Barbasol. After opening in 66-62-66, he began with a three-shot lead over 18-hole leader Chris Kirk and hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. The Arkansan squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 2, silenced by four circles at 7, 15, 17 and 18, the latter two from between 13 and 15 feet. He posted 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.805 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. Cook earns a two-year exemption on TOUR and a host of invites, including to the 2018 TOC, the Masters, THE PLAYERS, and PGA Championship.

Rookie of the Year Jon Rahm claimed the 2017 DP World Tour Championship with a magnificent final round of 5-under-par 34-33=67, setting a 19-under total of 269 which none of the last four players on the course, including pre-round leader Justin Rose, could match.

For the entire front nine Rose maintained his lead of the tournament, but as he reached the home straight of the Race to Dubai he made errors and Rahm emerged from the pack to take advantage. He had made three birdies in the first ten holes to allow that opportunity, at 3, 7 and 10, the latter from 8'0". He drained another from the same distance at 14 for birdie, missed one of a similar distance for a par-breaker at 15, knocked a third of that length in for a red number at the 16th to take the lead. He could only make par at the long 18th hole, but it was enough; he had bettered the target set by the runners-up Shane Lowry and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, Rose and Dylan Frittelli failed to match it. It crowns a superb rookie season for him on the European circuit and makes a mockery of those who doubted him being elected Rookie of the Year. "To play this well in my first year," he said. "I am very honored and very proud."

First-round leader and past champ Chris Kirk fashioned a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in the third round of The RSM Classic to post 15-under 197, up one spot to solo 2nd, three adrift of 54-hole leader Austin Cook.

After kicking off in 63-70, the Georgia alum began T3 on 9-under, five shy of 36-hole leader Cook. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he hit nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, losing 0.553 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 3.132 approaching-the-green. The 32-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 9, offset by seven circles at 3, 4, 6, 8, 11, 12 and 17, two from between 18 and 30 feet. He recorded 1.533 putts per GIR and 1.972 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. This is the World No. 188's first time in the top 10 thru 54 holes since T8 at the 2017 CareerBuilder back in January, where he finished T21 after 2-over 74.

Making his tournament debut, overnight leader and PGA TOUR rookie Austin Cook spun a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the third round of The RSM Classic to reach 18-under 194, good for a three-shot lead over first-round leader Chris Kirk.

This is the University of Arkansas alum's first 54-hole lead/co-lead in his 14th career TOUR start. His best finish thus far is T6 at the 2015 Barbasol as a non-member and the 599th-ranked player in OWGR. After kicking off in 66-62, the 26-year-old led by one over Brian Gay, who shot 69 today and dropped to solo 3rd, four back. He found 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.713 strokes off-the-tee and 0.637 around-the-green. The World No. 302, who was blemish-free thru 36 holes, squared a lone bogey-5 at 14 (3-putt from 83'8"), camouflaged by five circles at 1, 2 (from 14'3"), 7, 9 and 15. He registered 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.588 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

World No. 164 J.J. Spaun smoothed a bogey-free 8-under-par 30-32=62 on Moving Day at The RSM Classic, vaulting 29 spots to solo 4th on 13-under 199, good for the low round in the clubhouse and matching the low round of the week with Austin Cook (R2). UPDATE: With play completed, Spaun is solo 4th, five back of 54-hole leader Cook, and his 62 remained the low round of the day.

The 27-year-old will (most likely) not be leading at the end of the day, currently five back of the leader on the course Cook. He did put himself into contention once again, and posts a new career low in his 109th career lap, previously 63 in R4 at the 2017 Wyndham. The SDSU alum opened in 67-70 and found 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation on Day 3. He circled eight, highlighted by four straight at holes 5-9, recording 3.577 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.830 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. The Californian's split included four conversions from between 13 and 21 feet.

World No. 42 Webb Simpson, a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, withdrew prior to the third round of The RSM Classic. UPDATE: From his Twitter account, Simpson posted, "I WD due to my Dad being sick and living his last days. Thanks for all the support."

The Wake Forest alum, a playoff loser here in 2011, was scheduled to go off No. 1 tee at 10:45 am ET with Bubba Watson and Jim Herman. After opening his sixth appearance in 67-68, he was T12 on 7-under 135, seven short of 36-hole leader Austin Cook. This is the 32-year-old's second mid-tourney WD in his 239th career event, first since the 2009 Children's Miracle Network Classic during his rookie season. At press time, no reason has been published as to the reason for the WD.

Justin Rose heads into the final round of the 2017 European Tour season with two titles still within his grasp; he leads the DP World Tour Championship by one stroke, from Jon Rahm and Dylan Frittelli, on 15-under 201 after a third round of 7-under-par 33-32=65.

The Englishman was disappointed with his second lap of the Earth Course at Jumeirah, specifically his putting, and was seen working late into the night on the practice green, and then returned early to resume before his round. It helped. He ticked 1, 3 and 7 on the front nine to take the solo lead and then maintained the pace on the back nine to withstand a cavalry charge. He made a hat-trick of par breakers from the 12th, with the middle one earned by a chip-and-putt. At 16 he drained a 25-footer for his final birdie. He wanted another at the last, but his approach found water and he had to hole a knee-knocker for par and that one shot lead. "So much fun out there," he said. "But a one shot lead with a pack behind me like that, it's not much. Feeling better with the putter. That five footer for par at the last broke 18 inches so that's a big boost. A big opportunity tomorrow to win the Race to Dubai, that's how I view it. Just go for it."

Playing the Seaside Course, World No. 59 Charles Howell III stalled out to an even-par 34-36=70 in the second round of The RSM Classic and at 1-under 71-70=141, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 74 players (73 pros, one amateur) from a field of 155 pros and one amateur made the 36-hole cut of 3-under 139. Howell III, a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, was highest up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the road. He was 3-under on his lap thru 15 holes, safely inside the cut line, but played his final three holes in 3-over, eating double bogey-6 at 16, tee ball in the water, and a failed scramble at the par-3 17th. This is the 38-year-old's first MC of the season in five starts, arriving off three straight top 20s, highlighted by a season-best T4 at last week's OHL. Other early exits include: 140- Sean O'Hair; 2015 champ Robert Streb; Whee Kim; Ollie Schniederjans .. 141- Graeme McDowell; Bill Haas; Jason Kokrak .. 142- defender Mac Hughes; Danny Lee .. 143- Scott Brown .. 144- Jamie Lovemark; John Oda; Byeong Hun An; Patrick Rodgers; J.T. Poston .. 145- Si Woo Kim; Davis Love III .. 152- Andrew Johnston.

Austin Cook will sleep on his first PGA TOUR lead following a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 during round two of The RSM Classic, the lowest round of the week thus far on the Seaside Course, to vault him into sole possession of the 36-hole lead on 14-under 128.

The PGA TOUR rookie striped 13 (of 14) fairways during R1 and he split another 11 fairways today. That steady play off the tee has allowed him to go pin-hunting, pelting 33 greens in regulation, good for first in the field. Today, his strong iron play was good for 4.464 strokes gained on approach in addition to a trio of putts converted from outside 15 feet. The 26-year-old has yet to record a bogey this week. Playing his 14th event on the PGA TOUR, this will be his first time holding a lead after ANY round on the big stage. In 52 starts on the Web.com Tour he's led just once (R1 of the 2016 Rust-Oleum Championship). Cook has shown a ton of promise early in his career but this will be uncharted territory for the University of Arkansas product as he sleeps on a lead for the first time in his PGA TOUR career.
