Koumei Oda hung on to win the Bridgestone Open by one stroke over Hiroyuki Fujita.

Oda took a three-shot margin over Azuma Yano into today's finale at Sodegaura Country Club in Chiba, and then closed with a 3-under-par 34-34=68. The eventual champ birdied Nos. 15 and 16, but bogeyed the par-3 17th. It was a birdie-4 at the last that clinched his eighth title on the Japan Golf Tour. Yano drifted into a four-way T15 with a Sunday 71. Fujita turned in the round of the day with a 7-under 33-31=64 that featured eight birdies to challenge his fellow countryman. One of the spoils for the 36-year-old champ is a tee time at the 2015 World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational. Oda has never played in a WGC on U.S. soil. He and Fujita now sit a respective 1-2 on the money list.

With a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in his final round of the ISPS HANDA Perth International, Thorbjørn recorded a three-stroke victory over Victor Dubuisson.

The 24-year-old Dane co-led the tournament with Austrlian John Wade after a bogey-free, 8-under 64 in the opening round. Olesen then grabbed the outright lead at the midpoint with a 69 and retained sole possession entering today's finale with a third-round 67. He posted 17-under 271 to secure his second title on the European Tour (2012 Sicilian Open). It's a welcome validation after a forgettable first year on the PGA TOUR in 2013-14. Today's win exempts him into the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions in two weeks.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew from the Bridgestone Open before his third round due to an upset stomach.

Loosely translating the Japanese-language edition of JGTO.org, Snedeker's explanation fills in the blank that wasn't chased by mainstream media since his WD 24 hours ago. He added that he needs to rest while offering an apology to tournament organizers that paved the way for his inclusion in one of the Japan Golf Tour's cornerstone events. Assuming he's ready to go, we'll see him again at the WGC-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6.

Australia's Antonio Murdaca polished off his title at the Asia-Pacific Amateur Championship with a 1-under-par 36-35=71 to post 13-under 275, good for a seven-stroke margin over runner-up Horikawa Mikumu of Japan.

The 19-year-old champ opened with respective rounds of 69, 68 and 67 at The Royal Melbourne Golf Club in his home country. He arrived at the tournament sitting 168th in the World Amateur Golf Ranking. He's also the first Aussie to win this tournament. One of its rewards is a berth into the Masters, but he must remain an amateur to compete in the major. Guan Tianlang, who won the Asia-Pacific Amateur in 2012 and made the cut in the 2013 Masters despite being assessed a penalty for slow play, finished 11 strokes back of Murdaca in a three-way share of fifth place.

PGA TOUR rookie Whee Kim shot 4-over-par 39-35=74 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic to post 4-over 214 and miss the 54-hole cut by five strokes.

With 88 golfers surviving the 36-hole cut, the MDF provision was in play for the second consecutive week.

Will MacKenzie enjoyed a shot to remember en route to a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic after which he finished with a share of the overnight lead at 12-under 198.

MacKenzie totaled 15 greens in regulation for the third consecutive round at Sea Island Resort's Seaside Course to set the table for Moving Day. He opened with a standard-issue birdie at the par-4 first. After four pars, he flew his tee into the cup on the fly from 174 yards at the par-3 sixth. (To view the shot, click on the link below.) He added three birdies, including rolls from 14-and-a-half feet at the par-5 seventh and a walk-off grinner from 43'7" at the par-4 18th. MacKenzie will wake up on Sunday in prime position to secure his third PGA TOUR title and first since 2008.

Andrew Svoboda turned in his third 4-under-par 66 at The McGladrey Classic to establish a share of the 54-hole lead at 12-under 198.

While he started on the 10th hole in the second round, he's scored bogey-free, 3-under 32 on holes 1-9 every day. Today's stroll around Seaside included six birdies, four of which from outside 20 feet! He opened with his longest from 31'7" at the par-4 first hole. Svoboda's only blemish occurred at the par-4 11th where he didn't find the putting surface until his fourth stroke and eventually penciled in a 6. Given his position on the leaderboard and today's clinic, he leads the fields in strokes gained: putting at 9.046.

Chris Kirk enjoyed a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in his third round of The McGladrey Classic to post 9-under 201 and earn a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead.

It was a bit of a mixed bag for the defending champ at Seaside today. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, but squared three bogeys, including a three-putt from inside 25 feet at the par-4 second hole. Overall, he fanned on three tries inside eight feet. However, Kirk more than made up for the close calls with an eagle from 115 yards in the fairway at the par-4 eighth hole. He also converted five birdies, including rolls from 24'6", 13'1" and 14'11" at Nos. 1, 4 and 18, respectively.

Brandt Snedeker withdrew prior to his third round of the Bridgestone Open on the Japan Golf Tour.

Sneds cruised into the weekend at 2-under-par 71-69=140 -- the cut fell at 2-over 144 -- but he's shown as having withdrawn. No news has surfaced to explain why and he hasn't tweeted since Wednesday, so we'll have to await for the other shoe to drop on Saturday. His next scheduled start is the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions on Nov. 6-9.

Zach Johnson completed 36 holes of The McGladrey Classic in 4-over-par 71-73=144 and missed the cut by four strokes.

The local resident was poised to cash, but he played his last eight holes in birdie-free 6-over with two bogeys and two doubles. Overall, he split 24 (of 28) fairways and hit 28 greens in regulation, but got loose at the wrong time. It's his first MC since the Travelers Championship, thus ending a modest consecutive cuts made streak at eight. It's also the first time that Johnson has opened the season with a missed cut since his rookie year of 2004. Other notables that failed to survive include: 141--2010 champ Heath Slocum; Harris English ... 142--local resident Jonathan Byrd ... 144--Padraig Harrington ... 146--Russell Knox; Scott Brown.
Oct 24 - 8:57 PM

Lucas Glover reached the midpoint of The McGladrey Classic in even-par 73-67=140 to survive the cut on the number.

Not only was today's 3-under aggregate his lowest since a second-round 66 at the 2014 WM Phoenix Open, but Glover will cash for the first time anywhere in eight starts (Memorial). He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 16 greens in regulation at Seaside today. It was a stark reversal of his lid-lifter during which he went just 1-for-13 in birdie chances and squared four bogeys. He's one of 88 golfers that survived today's cut -- 22 on the number -- so a second cut of low 70 and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes.
