Martin Kaymer could only muster an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of THE PLAYERS, falling into a share of the lead with Jordan Spieth at 12-under 204.

The German erased an early bogey at the par-4 fourth with birdies from 8'10" and 3'1" at the par-4 sixth and par-5 ninth. It would then be all pars at the back nine of TPC Sawgrass until the par-4 18th, where he gave back a second bogey. The duo are three clear of their nearest chasers so, while it's not a match-play situation, they do have a small margin for error between them. Kaymer is a past world number one, and a PGA Champion, but that 2010 win represents his only PGA TOUR title. He will try and double that total in Sunday's final round. It's likely that his irons will have to propel him, has he is tied for the GIR lead in the tournament.

Hideto Tanihara beat Japanese compatriot Yuta Ikeda 3-and-1 at the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club, winning Group 5 with 2.5pts and confirming the exit of fifth-seeded Jordan Spieth.

Tanihara's victory over Spieth on day one and halved match with Ryan Moore yesterday meant he controlled his own destiny. And he rendered the Spieth v Moore match (eventually halved) meaningless after beating his higher-seeded countryman today. Tanihara (54) took the lead against Ikeda (37) with a kick-in birdie at 2 and, after the next was shared in birdie-2s, doubled his advantage with another circle at 6. The match lacked quality from there as Tanihara won the 8th with bogey to go 3-up while Ikeda's only wins were with pars at 10 and 14. Tanihara won 12 to keep daylight between him and his rival and closed out victory with a winning birdie at 17 from 13'11". This surprise group win for the World No. 60 sets up a Round of 16 clash with England's Paul Casey.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 147 Bryson DeChambeau painted a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the weather-delayed second round of the Puerto Rico Open, the current clubhouse leader on 11-under 133 and posting a new career low on the PGA TOUR in his 79th career round.

The first-time member (though not a rookie) had previously shot 66 six times, most recently at the 2017 Sony Open/R3. This is his 27th career start (22 pro) and his 12th start of the season. The SMU product checked in at 163rd in the FedExCup standings with just four previous cashes and a season-best T27 in his last start at the Valspar -- on a sponsor exemption -- with laps of 67-70-72-73. He kicked off with a five-birdie one-bogey 68 and chased with seven birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, highlighted by four straight circles on holes 5-8. The Web.com Tour grad posted 1.563 putts per GIR and used the putter 26 times.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 325 Tim Wilkinson painted a bogey-free 9-under-par 29-34=63 in the weather-delayed second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach 10-under 134, tying the clubhouse lead with Chris Stround and matching the low round of the week -- and course record -- with first-round leader Trey Mullinax.

The Web.com Tour grad is the seventh player all-time to put 63 on the board at Coco Beach. His career low in a now-433 career rounds is 8-under 62/R3 of the 2008 Sony Open, but this would be a new low in relation to par. Beginning on No. 10 tee, the 38-year-old went out in 2-under with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15, and then came home in 7-under 29, holing out for eagle-3 at 2 and circling five straight on holes 4-8. He split 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 17 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 1.438 putts per GIR and 25 putts total. This is the Kiwi's sixth appearance in Puerto Rico and after an opening 71, improves to 3-for-6. He has two prior top-25 finishes with one top 10, a T6 on debut in 2008.

John Rahm blew away compatriot Sergio Garcia 6-and-4 in their all-Spanish showdown at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play in Texas, powering into the Round of 16 with a perfect 3-0-0 record.

This was a classic case of new-kid-on-the-block v seasoned star and it was Rahm who landed virtually all the punches at Austin CC today. After the first two holes were shared in par, the youngster jumped into a 2-up lead with a birdie at 3 followed by a Garcia bogey at 4. Sergio cut the deficit in half thanks to what would prove his only red number of the day at 5 and stayed just a hole behind with three more pars. But Rahm ramped it up with a birdie at 9, nailed a 14'3" par breaker at 10 and tapped in for a third circle in four holes to go 4-up after 12. A demoralised Sergio handed his countryman the 13th with a bogey and when Rahm pumped his second to inside four feet at the par-4 14th, the two men shook hands. Next up could be a second Spanish showdown as Group 7 winner Rahm plays the winner of Group 10 which includes Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

Phil Mickelson clinched a group stage hat-trick of wins with a 6-and-5 demolition job on J.B. Holmes; he progresses to the knockout stages of the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin CC.

Having trounced Si Woo Kim 5-and-3, then dumped Daniel Berger 5-and-4, Mickelson completed a stunning first three days of the tournament with his work Friday, an effort that laughs in the face of his previous log book in the event (which lacks even one semi-final appearance in 12 attempts). But is that the true picture? Mickelson played the first 11 holes in just "1-under" (thanks to a 29’1" birdie at No. 2) and yet was 6-up courtesy of Holmes making three bogeys and conceding another two holes. After that the pair shared two holes with pars, more than sufficient to draw the last breath from Holmes. Mickelson will play Lee Westwood, Pat Perez or Marc Leishman in the round of 16.

The second round of the Puerto Rico Open was suspended at 11:35 a.m. ET due to heavy rain with players being removed from the course. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 1:30 p.m.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 343 Chris Stroud hung up a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 10-under 134, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. He was on his final hole (par-5 18th) in three and had just missed a lengthy birdie try when the horn sounded. The 35-year-old chose to finish up, knocking in a short come-backer to complete an 8-birdie one-bogey lap. Playing this season on conditional status, he's making his fifth start of the season, entering the week 2-for-4 with one finish inside the top 70, a T13 at the RSM prior to the holiday break. Chasing an opening 69 (five birdies, two bogeys), the Texan improves to 6-for-7 in Puerto Rico. His best so far (and lone top 10) is T9 in 2014 (73-67-68-65).

Soren Kjeldsen followed up his impressive Wednesday win with a 4-and-3 victory over Emiliano Grillo in round two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, securing his spot in the Round of 16 and eliminating 2-seed Rory McIlroy in the process.

The Dane was a wrecking ball on day one, but fell behind early today. After a par-bogey start, Kjeldsen found himself 2-down. He responded with three birdies over the next four holes to square the score, all on putts from inside six feet. The duo traded blows over the next three holes before Kjeldsen escaped from the pack to win four straight holes after the turn. The Dane arrived this week with an 0-4-1 record at this event, but he's now secured his spot in the Round of 16 after back-to-back wins, knocking out World No. 2 in the process. Kjeldsen will have a rest day tomorrow as his would-be opponent Gary Woodland has withdrawn from the event for personal reasons.

Due to heavy rain in the area, round one of the Puerto Rico Open was suspended at 5:06 p.m. ET with play set to resume at 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning.

While the morning wave got ideal scoring conditions this morning, the afternoon wave did not get so lucky. Golfers played through off-and-on weather throughout the day, but the officials eventually deemed it too much and sounded the horn just after 5:00 p.m. ET. There were 36 golfers left stranded on the course, with one of those being last year's 36-hole leader, Rafael Campos. The local favorite is currently 5-under thru 15 as he's traded seven birdies with two bogeys so far. Last year he finished T8 at this event, his first top 25 in nine tries at Coco Beach Golf and Country Club.

After an 0-2-0 start to his week in Austin, Texas, Francesco Molinari has withdrawn from this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, citing a wrist injury.

The Italian swallowed four bogeys in his match today against Thongchai Jaidee. The Thai would go onto to win 5-and-3 to eliminate Molinari. The Italian could have played spoiler in his final match of group play but instead called it quits, citing a wrist injury. With this WD, 8th-seeded Alex Noren will advanced out of Group 8 with a 3-0-0 record with a free win gifted to him tomorrow.
Mar 23 - 4:18 PM

Kevin Kisner never trailed in his battle against match play stalwart Patrick Reed, walking off Austin Country Club with a 1-up victory to earn his first point at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play.

Playing in blustery conditions today, both golfers failed to get much momentum today. There was just seven total birdies between the duo today (Kisner/4 ; Reed/3). One of those birdies came from Kisner on the opening par-4 first, which gave him the lead which he never surrendered all day. Reed did fight back to all square at the 11th and then again at the 16th. With Brooks Koepka starting 2-0-0 in Group 9, Patrick Reed is now eliminated but he will have a chance to play the spoiler role in his third round matchup against Koepka. Kisner will need to knock off Dufner tomorrow and then hope for a win out of Reed.
Mar 23 - 3:38 PM

Gary Woodland conceded his second round match against Rory McIlroy and withdrew from the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, citing personal reasons.

There was no press conference like Jason Day yesterday, but this is another reminded that these golfers are all battling external factors week in and week out. Woodland had started his week with a 3-and-2 victory over Emiliano Grillo but won't play another match this week, leaving the door open for Group 2 where Soren Kjeldsen and Rory McIlroy currently have 1 point. If Kjeldsen collects at least half a point against Grillo today then the Dane will advance onto the Round of 16.
