Jason Allred turned in a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-34=67 in today's open qualifier for the Travelers Championship, good for a share of runner-up honors and a berth into the tournament proper.

Allred circled four birdies at Black Hall Club in Old Lyme, Connecticut, today. He tied for 15th at the Memorial two weeks ago. In just four starts this season, he's collected $508,227 in non-member earnings and 236 non-member FedExCup points. Among members, he'd ranked a respective 121st and 150th. Should Allred sit inside the top 125 in either at the conclusion of the regular season, he'd earn his 2014-15 PGA TOUR card. He's 42 FedExCup points shy of qualifying for Special Temporary Membership. Lee Janzen led the way at today's four-spotter with a 5-under 33-33=66; he traded seven birdies with two bogeys. Marc Turnesa tied Allred at 4-under 32-35=67 with seven birdies and three bogeys. The final tee time of 156 at TPC River Highlands went to Sebastian Saavedra. After a 3-under 35-33=69 (6 birdies, 1 bogey, 1 double), he survived a four-way playing that included PGA TOUR winner Joe Ogilvie.

Sponsor invite Jon Rahm smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to wrap his tournament debut on 11-under 277, up four spots T2, one back of 72-hole clubhouse leader Jhonattan Vegas.

The 21-year-old, making his sixth start of the season and fourth as a pro, had an eagle chance on the 72nd hole (par-5 18th) from 10'4" to tie Vegas' mark, but settled for a two-putt birdie. It was his fifth of the round on 13 greens in regulation, four from inside of four feet and a long of 9'9" for birdie-3 on his opening hole. The former ASU standout gained 4.112 strokes tee-to-green but signed his card with a -1.048 in SG: Putting. He debuted his pro career with a T3 at the QL Nat'l and he's poised to eclipse that with play winding down for the day. Rahm totaled two eagles and 18 birdies, outpacing eight bogeys and two doubles.

Jhonattan Vegas styled an 8-under-par 31-33=64 in today's final round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 12-under 276, up 14 places on the live leaderboard to T1 and good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead.

The 31-year-old, playing this season on Past Champion status, led or co-led after each of the first three rounds last week at the Barbasol, but after opening in 65 and a career-low, course- and tournament-record 11-under 60, he played the weekend in 2-over 72-72, tying a season-best T4. Vegas' six-stroke lead at the midpoint was the largest on TOUR this season (previously four), and while finishing on a disappointing note, his top 10 got him an exemption into this week. The Houston resident began the finale in a six-way T15 on 4-under, five off the pace. He striped nine (of 14) fairways and peppered 15 greens in regulation, camouflaging a 3-putt bogey at the eighth with nine birdies, including five straight on Nos. 2-6 and three straight to end his round.

Brian Harman twirled a 9-under-par 30-33=63 in today's final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude his fifth appearance on 6-under 282, currently up 55 places to T13 and matching the low round of the week with two others.

The 29-year-old was solo second at the midpoint here last year (65-67) but played the weekend in 4-over 76-72 for T34. He opened this week in 75-71 to make the cut on the number and after a third-round 73, began the finale on 3-over in a tie for 68th. The Georgia native and resident, who arrived off a T8 last week at the opposite-field Barbasol, just his second top 10 of the season in 24 starts, squared a bogey-4 at the fourth, but otherwise was flawless, circling eight birdies (one a hole-out at the eighth), and an eagle on the par-5 second from 17'2", his longest conversion of the day on 12 greens. Harman's 63 matches a season best which he shot in R2 of the CIMB back in November.

Geoff Ogilvy painted a 9-under-par 32-31=63 in the final round of the RBC Canadian Open to post the clubhouse mark on 9-under 279, up 43 places on the live leaderboard to T1 and tying the low round of the week with two others.

The 39-year-old is making his sixth RBC appearance with a best of T4 in 2011 (Shaughnessy G&CC). He arrived 190th in the FedExCup standings with only six made cuts on the season in 18 prior starts. The Aussie's season-best was T33 as a sponsor exemption three starts ago at the Memorial. He began the final frame on even-par (T44) after opening in 73-71-72, nine swings back of overnight leader Brandt Snedeker. The eight-time TOUR winner split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 5.296 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.500 putts per GIR. He camouflaged a lone bogey-4 at the 12th with birdies at Nos. 2, 5, 8, 11, 13 and 15, and then eagled the par-5 16th (from 40 inches) and the par-5 18th from 4'6". Ogilvy's last win on TOUR came at the 2014 Barracuda.

Sponsor invite and non-member George Coetzee fired a 9-under-par 28-35=63 in today's final round of the RBC Canadian Open to conclude his tournament debut on 4-under 284, tying the low round of the week with Brian Harman/R4 and Geoff Ogilvy/R4.

The South African celebrated his 30th birthday last week (July 18th) and arrived at the RBC off a missed cut at The Open. He celebrated his birthday a week late, carding one eagle and eight birdies against a lone bogey-4 at the 12th, vaulting 49 places on the live leaderboard to T25. The European Tour member, who owns seven international titles, was playing his 102nd career round on the PGA TOUR and this sets a new low, previously 65 two times, most recently in R1 at the 2015 Wyndham Championship. Coetzee is in the field at next week's PGA Championship.

Overnight co-leader Dustin Johnson submitted a 1-under-par 34-37=71 after today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 208, down one place into a two-way T2, one back of 54-hole leader and 2013 champ Brandt Snedeker.

The FedExCup leader co-led after each of the first two rounds with Luke List, his playing partner on Day 3. While List was scuffling about to a 77, DJ pieced together a four-birdie three-bogey showing. He landed a week-best 14 greens in regulation, but posted a pedestrian 1.929 putts per GIR and -0.438 SG: Putting. The 32-year-old is looking for his third win this season, third in his last four starts. His victories at the WGC-Bridgestone and the U.S. Open were both in come-from-behind fashion. Johnson will play out of the penultimate twosome and if he wins on Sunday, it'll be the first time he's recorded three victories in one season and will be his 12th overall in 196 career starts.

Past champ Brandt Snedeker hung up a 6-under-par 30-36=66 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach 9-under 207, up 15 spots on the day and good for a one-shot lead over Canadian amateur Jared du Toit and 36-hole co-leader Dustin Johnson.

The 2013 champ won here at Glen Abbey GC from the 54-hole perch, leading by one and eventually winning by three with a closing 70. It was his second win of the season and sixth overall. The 35-year-old will be going for his second title this season as well, claiming his eighth TOUR victory at the Farmers in come-from-behind fashion. He also co-led the Sony after 54 holes, but lost in a playoff to Fabian Gomez. Snedeker began R3 on 3-under (T16), four adrift after opening his seventh RBC in 68-73. He raced out with five straight birdies on Nos. 2-6 before stalling mid-round with seven pars and bogeys at 11 and 15. The Vanderbilt alum rallied for a birdie-4 at 16 from 14'6" and then canned a seven-footer for a walk-off eagle at the par-5 18th.

Sponsor invite and top-ranked Canadian amateur Jared du Toit rallied for a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 208, up one place into a two-way T2, one swing back of 54-hole leader and 2013 champ Brandt Snedeker.

Forty-one years before du Toit was born, Pat Fletcher won the 1954 Canadian Open, the last Canuck to win his nation's championship. The soon-to-be senior at Arizona State opened his PGA TOUR debut in 67-71 to sit in a three-way T3 on 6-under. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, he bobbed and weaved to a 1-over first half, outpacing birdies at Nos. 4 and 8, both from five feet and in, with bogeys at 3, 5 and 7 (failed scrambles). The 21-year-old came home in blemish-free 3-under, circling the 12th from 7'1" and ramming home a 40'5" bomb for eagle on the par-5 18th, vaulting him into the final group on Sunday. He's leading the field in putts per GIR at 1.545.

Martin Laird turned in a 4-under-par 34-34=68 after the third round of the RBC Canadian Open to reach the three-quarter pole on 6-under 210, up 16 places on the live leaderboard to T5, three back of clubhouse leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 33-year-old was the 18-hole leader two starts ago at the opposite-field Barracuda (Modified Stableford) and eventually finished a season-best T7. He arrived this week at No. 126 in the FedExCup standings with just two top 10s in 19 events and only five events remaining until the start of the Playoffs. The Scot began the third frame on 2-under (T21) after opening his fifth Canadian Open in 73-69. He striped eight (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, currently leading the field in the latter at 81.48 percent (44/54). Laird outpaced one bogey (failed scramble) with five birdies, each from inside of 12 feet.
Jul 23 - 4:27 PM

Steve Wheatcroft styled a career-tying-low 8-under-par 32-32=64 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open, setting the 36-hole clubhouse mark at 7-under 209 and posting the low round of the week. UPDATE: With play completed, Wheatcroft is in a two-way T4, two back of 54-hole leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 38-year-old was playing his 368th career round on TOUR and this matches the 64 he shot in 2012 at the Greenbrier, also in the third round. He began the day on 1-over (T47), one inside the cut line after opening his fifth RBC appearance in 68-77. The Indiana University alum went 13 strokes lower than yesterday, overshadowing bogeys on Nos. 2 and 15 with eight birdies and a walk-off eagle-3 from 42'10". His card featured three sets of back-to-back birdies and he capped with a birdie-birdie-eagle finish. The Pennsylvania native peppered 14 greens in regulation, circling seven par breakers the conventional way and adding birdie-2s at the eighth from 25'8" away in the fringe and a pitch-in 40'6" from the target at the 12th. He gained 5.815 SG: Tee-to-Green and 1.962 SG: Putting.
Jul 23 - 3:46 PM

Derek Fathauer twirled a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in today's third round of the RBC Canadian Open to post the second best round of the week (Steve Wheatcroft, 64/R3) and reach 5-under 211.

The 30-year-old began the day on T62 after making the cut on the number (74-72). Thru 36 holes he carded six birdies against six bogeys and one double. The University of Louisville alum bested his two-day output in par breakers with seven birdies in R3, posting 1.625 putts per GIR on 16 greens. His split featured a 24-footer at the par-4 11th and four conversions from between 12 and 21 feet, signing his card with a 4.097 SG: Putting. This was Fathauer's 82nd round of the season and he's shot 65 two other times. He's currently up 53 places to T9 on the leaderboard.
