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.

Overnight leader and World No. 196 Adam Hadwin backed up with a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in the final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge for a 72-hole total of 19-under 269, down one spot to solo 2nd, one shy of champion Hudson Swafford, who shot 67.

The Canadian was chasing his first TOUR title in his 73rd career start, but settles for a career-best runner-up, eclipsing T4 at the 2011 RBC Canadian Open (as a non-member). It's also his best finish at the CBC in three tries, supplanting T6 last year. After opening in 71-69-59, the 29-year-old led by one over rookie Dominic Bozzelli and two clear of four players, including Swafford, who completed the final threesome. Protecting his first career 54-hole lead/co-lead, he dipped into a three-way tie at the turn, exchanging bogey-4 at four with birdie-4 at five. Hadwin circled the par-5 11th to move one clear, but missed birdie at 12 from 8'4" before squaring bogey-4 at 13. He birdied 16 and 17, the latter from 25'11", but needed birdie on 18 to tie Swafford and scrambled to a one-putt par (from 11'4") for the final margin.

World No. 204 Hudson Swafford, a pre-tourney 50/1 outright, styled a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 20-under 268, good for a 1-shot win over 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin and his first PGA TOUR title in his 93rd career start (92 pro).

This was the Florida native's fourth visit with a previous-best T25 on debut in 2014. It was his sixth start of the season and first top 10, arriving off T13 at the Sony where he was T3 thru 54 holes but closed in 1-over 71. After opening in twin 65s, the 29-year-old led by one thru 36 holes, his first career 36-hole lead/co-lead. After a third-round 71 (Stadium Course), he once again began the finale in a three-way T3, two shy of Hadwin. Playing out of the final threesome, he found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.815 strokes tee-to-green. The Georgia Bulldog alum, whose previous best on TOUR was T8 (x2), bogeyed the first, 3-putting from 41'7", but played his final 17 holes in blemish-free 6-under. Two times he circled three straight birdies, at Nos. 7-9, and again at 15-17, including a tap-in at the par-3 17th after stiffing his approach to 17 inches.

Making his 100th career TOUR start (99 pro), World No. 323 Bud Cauley rode a hole-out eagle-2 to a 3-under-par 36-33=69 in today's final round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 18-under 270, good for a two-way T3, two back of champion Hudson Swafford and matching his career-best finish.

This was the 26-year-old's fifth appearance with a previous-best T14 last year. After opening the season with a T50 in Napa, he arrived off four straight missed cuts. The Alabama product began R4 in a four-way T3 on 15-under, two adrift of 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin. He circled two birdies and a hole-out eagle-3 at 11 (from 103 yards out) to jump into a four-way tie for the lead on 17-under, but managed just one more birdie-3 at 14 over his last seven holes. Cauley's lone bogey came at the par-4 ninth, just his second bogey in his final 54 holes. This is his third, third-place finish on TOUR, first since solo 3rd at the 2012 Wyndham.

Tommy Fleetwood confirmed victory in the 2017 Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship with a sensational approach to the 72nd hole; his 17-under-par 271 left him one shot clear of Dustin Johnson and Pablo Larrazabal after he carded a final round 5-under 36-31=67.

The Englishman claimed his second European Tour win on his 162nd start, coming after an ever-improving run since early August which has seen him go 13-for-13 with ten top 25 finishes; the trophy tops it all very nicely. On the front nine the result had looked unlikely, however, as he made a bogey at the 3rd and waited until the 8th to get it back. But he made a superb move early in the back nine, chipping in for eagle-3 at the 10th and draining another par breaker from 8'0" at 11. That sent him to the top of the leaderboard. He pressed home with a 6'0" birdie at 16 and, after pulling his drive at the last, he blasted that magnificent 3-wood from the first cut onto the green and two-putted for birdie. It was a classy win, during which his long-term quality ball-striking was finally backed up with solid putting; it also confounded his previous form at the Abu Dhabi GC, where he was 1-for-5. "Didn't see it coming here," he laughed afterwards.

World No. 85 Jamie Lovemark, a pre-tourney 28/1 outright, ballooned to a 5-over-par 36-41=77 in today's third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge and at 3-over 219, missed the scheduled 54-hole cut by eight shots.

A total of 77 players from a field of 156 pros made the cut on 5-under 211. Lovemark was a popular play this week, entering off back-to-back top-10 finishes, including a T4 last week on Oahu, and was T6 here last year. The 28-year-old, two days shy of his birthday (Jan. 23rd), posted rounds of 72-70 and carded three birdies against three bogeys, a double bogey-5 and a triple bogey-6 in the third round. Other notable early exits include: 212- Harold Varner III; Graham DeLaet ... 213- Zach Johnson ... 215- Ryan Palmer; Russell Henley; Emiliano Grillo; Brandon Stone; William McGirt ... 216- Kevin Streelman ... 217- Charley Hoffman ... 218- Cameron Smith ... 221- John Huh.

Playing the Nicklaus Tournament Course, TOUR rookie Dominic Bozzelli pieced together a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in today's third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to reach 16-under 200, currently solo 2nd and one shy of 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin, who shot 59. UPDATE: Bozzelli will play out of the R4 final threesome and is vying for his first TOUR title in sixth career start. His best so far is T35 at the season-opening Safeway Open.

The World No. 321 was the first-round leader with a career-low 64, adding a 67 to begin R3 in a two-way T2, one shy of 36-hole leader Hudson Swafford. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he raced out with birdies at 10, 11 and 13 before squaring bogey-5 at 18, his first blemish of the week. The Auburn alum tacked on a birdie at the par-4 second but stalled out the rest of the way with seven straight pars. He mustered seven (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.714 putts per GIR.

Playing La Quinta Country Club, World No. 196 Adam Hadwin fired a career-low bogey-free 13-under-par 29-30=59 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 17-under 199, up 48 places on the live leaderboard and good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Hadwin leads by one over TOUR rookie Dominic Bozzelli and will be going for his first TOUR victory in his 73rd career start. His career best is T4 at the 2011 RBC Canadian Open as a non-member.

The Canadian is just the eighth player (ninth time) to shoot a sub-60 and just the fourth to accomplish it on a par-72 layout. It's easily a career best in his 240th career round, brushing aside 63 at the 2015 Shriners/R4. The 29-year-old was T3 here last year thru 54 holes (66-66-64) but closed in even-par 72 for T6. He began today's third frame T49 on 4-under (71-69) and peppered 12 (of 14) fairways, 15 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 1.267 putts per GIR and just 21 total putts. The Louisville alum circled 13 birdies, matching the TOUR's all-time record with Chip Beck (1991 Shriners). He connected six straight on Nos. 2-7 and five straight at 11-15, adding birdie-3s at 9 and 17. Hadwin got up-and-down for a par 4 at the last to match the tournament record with David Duval (1999/R4- Palmer Private).

Playing the Stadium Course, overnight leader Hudson Swafford backed up with a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in the third round of the CareerBuilder Challenge to post 15-under 201, down two spots to T3 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Swafford is in a four-way T3, two back of 54-hole leader Adam Hadwin, and will play out of the final threesome in R4.

After opening in twin 65s, the World No. 204 began the third frame with a 1-shot lead over first-round leader and TOUR rookie Dominic Bozzelli. It was his first 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 93rd career start (92 pro) and second lead after ANY round (co-led 2015 OHL/R1; finished T51). The Georgia Bulldog alum sandwiched bogey-6 at the fifth (second shot into the water) with a 26-footer for birdie at the par-4 third and then three straight birdies at 6-8, each from inside of 10 feet. He circled the par-5 11th (from 7'1") but then doubled the par-5 16th, taking five shots to get down from a greenside bunker. Swafford squared bogey-4 at 17 (failed scramble) to complete his scoring and finished with just 12 greens in regulation and lost 1.798 strokes around-the-green.

Due to expected inclement weather, final-round tee times for the CareerBuilder Challenge on Sunday will be approximately 7:30 - 9:30 am (PT) with an anticipated finish of 2:30 pm.

The scheduled 54-hole cut will take place at the conclusion of Saturday's play. Playing La Quinta CC, World No. 82 Anirban Lahiri fired a bogey-free 8-under-par 30-34=64 in today's third round to chase opening laps of 69-72. He circled eight birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation and is up 56 places on the live leaderboard to T13. Playing his 136th career round, Lahiri's 64 ties a career low which he shot in R1 here last year.

Tyrell Hatton fired his way to the head of the field Saturday with a 4-under-par 36-32=68 which earned him the 54-hole lead in the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship on 13-under 203, one swing clear of Dustin Johnson, Pablo Larrazabal, Martin Kaymer, Kiradech Aphibarnrat and Tommy Fleetwood.

The Englishman is beginning 2017 exactly as he ended 2016 – by contending a title in the United Arab Emirates. And whilst he came up one shot short of forcing Matt Fitzpatrick to a play-off in the DP World Tour Championship, he will have the chance to claim a second European Tour title on Sunday, albeit on a very bunched leaderboard at the Abu Dhabi GC. For seven holes of his third round it was refusing to happen, as he carded six pars and a bogey at the 4th. But a birdie-4 at the 8th saw him turn in level-par and he accelerated for home. He ticked 11, 13 and made it three in four with a 12’0" birdie putt at 14. He completed the job with a tap-in par breaker at the final hole. He’s held just one 54-hole lead on Tour, when three clear of the field at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship. He converted in style that week, tomorrow will be a tougher examination: there are 15 players within three shots of his lead.

Battling La Quinta Country Club, overnight leader Dominic Bozzelli coasted to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge, reaching 13-under 131 to find himself one off the pacesetter Hudson Swafford.

The PGA TOUR rookie showed no sign of nerves, despite holding his first lead on TOUR after day one. The Auburn product split just six (of 14) fairways and landed just 11 greens in regulation, but he remained composed while finding a way to maintain a clean card by day's end. The highlight of the round came at the par-4 10th where Bozzelli chipped in for birdie from just off the green. The 25-year-old is still bogey-free at the midpoint, and he'll turn his attention toward the Nicklaus Tournament Course on Saturday.
