Seung-yul Noh took over the lead at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans with his blemish-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round.

Noh began the day four strokes behind Ben Martin, but caught him by the turn at TPC Louisiana. Of Noh's seven birdies, three came from outside 10 feet, including a 35'11" bomb at the 10th. Proximity was also a big deal, as he birdied two of the par 4s with approaches inside 18 inches. Perhaps the biggest story of his week is that he hasn't recorded a bogey or worse all week, with 18 birdies only interrupted by 36 pars. He tries to close the door on his first PGA TOUR win leading by two strokes over Keegan Bradley at 18-under 198.

Tommy Fleetwood won't have time to revel in his Race to Dubai victory; he's one of the elite names contesting this week's UBS Hong Kong Open in Fanling.

The young Englishman secured his position as new European No. 1 in last week's DP World Tour Championship after Justin Rose couldn't reel him in after faltering late. Fleetwood had to settle for T21 despite a pair of middle 65s and, although there's a slight feeling he stumbled over the line, the bare facts are that the 26-year-old finished his campaign with six straight top 25s. The weight of pressure probably compromised several of those finishes so this week could be a nice, free hit for him even though fatigue will be a factor too. Fleetwood played this event for the first time last year and posted T3 while he was also runner-up at April's Shenzhen International. Overall he has four top threes in China so the ingredients are there for him to have another winning week if his focus is right.

Sam Brazel was the shock winner of last year’s UBS Hong Kong Open and he’s back at Fanling to try and win the title again this week.

The Aussie was ranked 480th in the world ahead of the 2016 event and, at 37, considered a little-known journeyman. However, he dwarfed his previous career earnings to shoot 13-under and edge out Rafa Cabera Bello at the final hole with a winning birdie. Although appearing to come from nowhere, there was a hint that Brazel could play well given that he’d finished T18 the previous year. Fanling is clearly a course he relishes. Since then, he hasn’t managed a single top 10 and he made little impression in the closing big-money events of 2017 with T66 in the Italian Open, T52 at the Turkish Airlines Open and T42 at the Nedbank Golf Challenge. Current form gives him little chance; course form suggests he could just pull another rabbit out of the hat.

Sergio Garcia is looking for the perfect end to 2017 at the UBS Hong Kong Open hosted by Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling.

This is the first time Garcia has played the tournament and he likes what he sees. "I had a chance to see the golf course this morning and it’s just spectacular," he said. "It’s a really fun test where you have to position your ball accurately as there are some tricky pin positions around the greens." He will also have noted the success of his compatriots here. Jose Maria Olazabal, Jose Manuel Lara (a friend of his who caddied for him earlier this year) and Miguel Angel Jimenez (four times) have won in Fanling. He has ranked fourth and third for Ball Striking in his last two starts and ended last week with a stunning 65. "I started the year with a win (Dubai)," he said. "Maybe I can end that way too."

Justin Rose will be looking to claim a second UBS Hong Kong Open title at the Hong Kong Golf Club in Fanling this week.

The course is not long, but it is testing and Rose likes it. He's said as much and he's also proved it when winning in 2015. That said, either side he finished MC and T36 so it's not all been good, the difference between those efforts was not his long game (he always hit plenty of greens), but his work around the greens (91% Scrambling for the win, less than 40% the other two appearances). The biggest question this week, however, is less 'Does the course fit?' than 'How will Rose react to his back nine last Sunday?' Remember, as he made the turn he was leading the DP World Tour Championship and with it the Race to Dubai. By the end of the round he had lost both. He said afterwards that he was distracted on 14 prior to hitting into water and regretted not standing back. That was the moment he wished he could replay. If the wound is healed quickly his form is strong: win-win-T4 is not bad at all.

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. UPDATE: This is Gay's 11th top-3 finish in 523 career events, first of the season and second in his last 10 starts (T3, 2017 Barbasol).

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. UPDATE: Spaun jumps 46 spots to 116th in OWGR and 36 spots to a career-high 10th in the FedExCup standings.

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. UPDATE: Cook vaults 158 places from 302nd in OWGR to a career-high 144th and jumps 85 spots to a career-high 3rd in the FedExCup standings.

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.
Nov 18 - 4:45 PM

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.
