Due to expected inclement weather, Sunday's final-round tee times at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans will be between 6:40 and 8:16 AM (CT) with foursomes off both sets of tees.

The format for Sunday's finale is four-ball (best ball). Defending champ Brian Stuard and teammate Chris Stroud will play out of the third-to-last grouping off No. 1 tee and will begin in solo 5th on 13-under 203, six in arrears to 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith. Stuard/Stroud chased an opening 68 (alternate shot) with 64 (best ball), and carved out a 1-under-par 35-36=71 in Round 3 (alternate shot). They squared a lone bogey-4 at 14 (failed scramble), offset by birdies at holes 7 and 16, both from between seven and eight feet, and both knocked home by Stroud. Clutch par saves by both occurred throughout the round with each taking turns brushing in matching 11'11" par-savers at the 17th and 18th.

Smith converted a 2-putt birdie-4 at the second and Blixt went back-to-back with a 17'8" birdie roll at the par-3 third.

First-round co-leaders Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer orchestrated a 2-under-par 35-35=70 in alternate-shot action on Day 3 of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach the three-quarter mark on 14-under 202, up one place to solo 4th, five back of 36- and 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith.

Their drops came at the par-5 second --Palmer whiffing a par-saver from 29 inches-- and bogey-5 at 13, the duo 3-putting from 4'6", each missing from less than five feet.

Spieth had a chance for one better (and his only birdie) at the par-5 18th, but he whiffed from 39 inches.

UPDATE: With play completed, Kisner/Brown are T2 and four back of 54-hole leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith.

It was a tale of two nines for the Aiken, South Carolina, residents. They began with nine straight pars before Kisner broke the ice from 6'4" at the par-4 10th.

Playing alternate shot in the third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, past champ Bubba Watson and J.B. Holmes fashioned a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-34=68 to reach 11-under 205, up 21 spots on the live leaderboard to T11 and tying the low round in the clubhouse. UPDATE: With play completed, Watson/Holmes are T8 and eight back, while Kevin Kisner and Scott Brown shot the low round with 67.

This is Watson's 10th Zurich, first since T15 in 2013, and was a playoff winner in 2011. Holmes is making his fourth appearance, first since 2014, and has gotten better each time (CUT/2009, T13/2012, T11/2014). They struggled to a 73 on Day 1 of alternate shot, but rebounded with 64 in Friday four-ball action. The momentum carried over into Day 3, with the duo circling four birdies at Nos. 7, 8, 13 and 18, walking off with a 4 at the par-5 18th from 7'1". Watson knocked in that one, and also birdie-3 at 13 from 7'0", while Holmes converted their first two for the good, both from inside eight feet as well. Watson, who entered the week ranked 192nd on TOUR in SG: Putting, kept the card clean with a 6'7" par-saver at the sixth, and an 11'11" par-saver at nine. Fifteen (of 42) teams have signed their cards so far with Watson and Holmes the only blemish-free lap.

Dylan Frittelli scorched Topwin Golf & CC, carding a third round 8-under-par 32-32=64; his 54-hole total of 19-under 197 gives him a three-shot lead over Pablo Larrazabal at the Volvo China Open.

The South African is yet to win on the European Tour but he is 17-under through his last 36 holes in Beijing - a stunning stretch of golf that has split the field. Only Larrazabal in second has come close to equaling it; Alexander Levy, in solo third, is seven adrift of Frittelli on 12-under. The South African leader made four birdies on each nine. There were ticks at 4, 6, 7 and 8 on the front, then 11, 12, 15 and 18 on his return to the clubhouse. It was a commanding performance Saturday, giving him a first solo 54-hole lead on the European Tour; he had a share of the lead in the 2015 Australian PGA Championship, finishing T2. He also held a four shot lead in the Challenge Tour's 2013 Karnten Open and converted the win, but that effort will pale set against this victory should he prevail Sunday. T5 last week in the Shenzhen International he has not only maintained that form, but brutally improved on it thus far.

Playing best ball in round two of the Zurich Classic, Tyrone Van Aswegen and Retief Goosen torched TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 12-under-par 30-30=60, soaring up to 11-under 133 after 36 holes, good for a spot inside the top 10.

The South African duo failed to get much started on day one while playing alternate shot, trading four birdies with two bogeys and a triple. It could have been a late-night range session or just a switch to the four-ball format that did the trick. Whatever it was, this team was clicking on all cylinders today. Highlights include seven birdie splashes from Goosen, four from outside 10 feet. Van Aswegen played the Robin role to Goosen's Batman, still managing to add three birdies in addition to an eagle (6'7") at the par-5 seventh. This goes in the books as the low round of the day and is the first score to finally beat the individual course record which is held by Ben Martin (62, R1 of 2014 edition). Unfortunately for the South Africans, they will have to flip the switch back to alternate-shot format in round three.

Past champ K.J. Choi and World No. 1185 Charlie Wi smoothed a bogey-free 8-under-par 32-32=64 in the second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to reach the midpoint on 13-under 131, currently T3 on the leaderboard and two adrift of clubhouse leaders Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith. UPDATE: With play completed, Choi/Wi are in a two-way T3, two back of Blixt/Smith.

Choi won this event in 2002 (English Turn G&CC), his first of eight TOUR wins. Wi, who has no status on TOUR, was runner-up at the current venue in 2009, and is making just his second start of the season (T57, Sanderson Farms). After an opening 67 (alternate shot), the pairing began T3, and one back, and maintained their position on the board, circling eight birdies, with Choi providing the bulk of that carding six. Wi birdied Nos. 8 and 16, the latter from 14'3", while Choi circled 1, 2, 6, 11, 13 and 17, all six from between six and 24 feet, with a long of 23'3" at the par-4 sixth.

Patrick Reed and playing partner Patrick Cantlay blitzed TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 10-under-par 31-31=62 during the second round of the Zurich Classic, placing them one stroke shy of clubhouse leaders Jonas Blixt & Cameron Smith. UPDATE: With play completed, Reed/Cantlay are in solo 2nd, one back of Blixt/Smith.

Reed arrived this week with a career four-ball record of 4-1-0. There was no opposing team today, but the Texan remained strong in this format. As a team they circled 10 birdies today, with Reed contributing six of those, including a 19'6" splash at the par-4 fifth hole. Cantlay's most notable contribution came in the form of a 22'3" birdie bomb at the par-4 15th. Reed arrived with missed cuts in his last three starts, but birdies are flying off the shelf this week. This duo should thrive again on Sunday, but tomorrow will be a tough test as they head back to alternate shot for round three.

Jonas Blixt and Cameron Smith maintained a clean card for the week by firing a bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62 during round two of the Zurich Classic, staking their claim as the 36-hole clubhouse leaders on 15-under 129. UPDATE: With play completed, Blixt/Smith lead by one over Patrick Reed and Patrick Cantlay.

This duo opened the day just one stroke off the overnight co-leaders, firing a 5-under 67 while playing alternate shot. Today, the format moved to four-ball, and the pairing continued to shine. They started on the 10th tee and picked up four birdies before the turn, all coming on putts from 7-to-14 feet. After the turn, the fireworks started. Smith splashed home a 31'1" eagle putt on the par-5 second hole and five holes later Blixt would add a second eagle, this time from 27'2". It was a balanced effort as they each carded four of the team's eight total parbreakers. In addition to the scoring, Smith added a crucial 10'3" par saver at the third hole. That helped them maintain a clean card for the round, as well as the entire week. Having a 36-hole lead will be a new experience for the young Aussie who has been inside the top 10 just once after R2 in his PGA TOUR career. Blixt has one 36-hole co-lead (2012 Shriners), finishing solo third that week.
