Rory McIlroy toyed with the competition in the third round of The Open Championship, but pulled away late at Royal Liverpool for a 4-under-par 35-33=68 and a six-stroke lead.

McIlroy traded two birdies for two bogeys across his first 13 holes, and was joined briefly in the lead by Rickie Fowler. The Ulsterman stepped on the gas late, circling a birdie at the par-4 14th and eagles on the par-5 16th and par-5 18th holes despite a bogey at the par-4 17th. It all adds up to a 16-under 200 tally. In some ways, this tournament is starting to feel like Martin Kaymer's runaway at Pinehurst last month and is eerily similar to the fashion in which McIlroy earned his first two major championship titles in the 2011 U.S. Open and the 2012 PGA Championship. He will try and claim the third leg in his quest to complete the career grand slam on Sunday.

Lucas Bjerregaard thrashed a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in his second round at the Portugal Masters, reaching 11-under 131 at halfway and taking a two-shot lead in the clubhouse.

With scoring conditions still good at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, former winner Shane Lowry, England's Eddie Pepperell and South African George Coetzee all posted the early number of 9-under. Bjerregaard, who had opened with a 66 on day one, hit that mark with a burst of four birdies in five holes (4, 5, 7 and 8 on his front nine). The Dane then became the first player to hit double digits under par with a go-ahead birdie on the par-5 12th and doubled his advantage with another circle on the par-5 17th. Bjerregaard is clearly a big fan of this track having finished T12 and T9 the last two years and returned on the back of a top 10 at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland on his last start. Gamers who took note of those converging trends are sitting pretty although there are several players in the afternoon wave who could still displace him as the 36-hole leader.

Joint-overnight leader George Coetzee tacked on a 2-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 64 to reach 9-under 133 after 36 holes of the Portugal Masters, currently good enough for a share of the clubhouse lead with Eddie Pepperell.

Both Coetzee and Pepperell finished in the top five at last week's KLM Open in the Netherlands and the pair have carried that good form to Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura. It was more a morning of consolidation for the South African, who could only pick out three birdies on his early lap. His first came at No. 2 but a string of pars along with bogey-5 at No. 6 meant he reached the turn still on 7-under for the tournament. Coetzee birdied the 10th for the second day running to get his score going forward again and found a final circle of his round by ticking the par-3 16th. On the live leaderboard, he's a shot behind Lucas Bjerregaard, who still has five to play.

Brooks Koepka coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-34=66 during the opening round of the TOUR Championship, just two off the pace set by early leader Kyle Stanley.

The Florida State product entered the week 9th in the FedExCup race. It appears he is glad to be back in the South on bermudagrass as he peppered 14 greens in regulation en route to a four-pack of birdies, without dropping a shot along the way. It wasn't stressfree, though, as he saved par from the 7-to-10 foot range on three occasions. That was good enough for 2.165 strokes gained putting at the time he signed his card. Koepka finished T18 in his 2018 TOUR Championship debut and is making his first return visit this week.

Daniel Berger brought the noise in round one of the TOUR Championship, cruising to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to find himself two strokes shy of early leader Kyle Stanley.

Berger gained 1.439 strokes off-the-tee today but found just 10 greens in regulation from there. It was his strong short game that glued the round together, most notably a 22'9" par-saver at the 13th. The flat stick wasn't done yet, though, as he walked off the course with a 13'11" eagle splash that plummeted into the hole to help him reach 4-under on the day. Making his third appearance at East Lake, the Florida State product is looking to improve upon his already steady resume that includes finishes of T12 and T15 here. This certainly helps as it beats his previous best at East Lake by two strokes.

Kyle Stanley breezed through East Lake Golf Club en route to a 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the TOUR Championship, staking out his claim at the early clubhouse leader on Thursday afternoon.

The Clemson product split 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation. That was good for 1.958 strokes gained off-the-tee and 2.632 strokes gained on approach. That kind of performance is nothing out of the ordinary for Stanley, but his short game was also smooth today, draining a 37'3" birdie bomb at the 4th, holing out from 13'1" (fringe) for birdie at the 12th, and then sinking an 18'4" birdie splash at the 15th. Stanley is making his tournament debut this week but had no trouble figuring things out today. This goes in the books as his low opening lap of the season and second lowest R1 of his career (10-under 62 at 2012 Farmers). If this lead holds it will be the third first-round lead/co-lead of his career.

George Coetzee was briefly on '59 watch' before hoisting up a 7-under-par 30-34=64 in his opening lap at the Portugal Masters, good enough for a share of the day-one clubhouse lead with Joost Luiten.

The European Tour is still to witness an official sub-60 round and Coetzee was the latest to threaten that impregnable barrier after playing his first eight holes at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in 6-under. Those red numbers came at 10, 12, 13, 14, 15 and 17. But a bogey at No. 2 halted his momentum and the South African had to settle for a 1-under 34 coming home after finding just two more circles at 5 and 8. Today's round continues the return to form he showed when tied for third in last week's KLM Open in the Netherlands. Right now, Coetzee and Luiten are a shot clear of six players but there's still a chance they could be passed.

Joost Luiten fired a magnificent 7-under-par 32-32=64 to grab the early first round clubhouse lead in the Portugal Masters at the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

One week after the Dutchman missed the cut when defending his KLM Open title, he rediscovered his mojo with a scintillating lap of the Algarve course where he was T2 on tournament debut back in 2010. That year he posted a third round 65 and his Thursday circuit betters that as his career best on the course. His bogey-free round started on the back nine and included a hat-trick of birdie-3s at 11, 15 and 18, plus a birdie-4 at 17. The front nine saw par breakers at 1 and 5 to ease him into a tie for the lead and he broke from that with a stunning approach to the ninth green, leaving him an uphill right to left six footer for birdie which he slotted into the cup. He took lunch one shot clear of Ashun Wu and Jason Scrivener on 6-under, both also in the clubhouse. Gregory Havret (thru 15) and Nino Bertasio (12) were on 5-under with holes to play catch-up.

FedExCup leader and World No. 2 Jordan Spieth is at East Lake Golf Club for his fifth consecutive TOUR Championship and arrives as a 9/2 pre-tourney fave outright.

Spieth was the 7-seed as defending champ last year and finished T17 (68-72-72-68). He was the 2-seed in 2015 when he went on to win the tourney (as 54-hole leader) and hoist the FedExCup. The 24-year-old is the only past champion in the field this week as he looks to join Tiger Woods (2007, 2009) as the only multiple winners of the FedExCup and first player to win the tourney proper more than once (in the FEC era). He'll be paired with 2-seed Justin Thomas in R1 with the duo deadlocked for the season lead in top-10 finishes with 11 each. The Texan, who's chasing his fourth win of the season, is one of three players in the field that has opened the Playoffs with three consecutive top 10s (T7-2-P2). This is his 20th overall Playoffs event with nine prior top 10s, five top 5s, three runners-up and one win.

Andy Sullivan has a win and a second place in his last two starts at the Portugal Masters and he'll look to cash in again when he returns to Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course this week.

Sullivan powered to a nine-shot victory in 2015 and finished just one back from Padraig Harrington last year. His numbers are staggering. The Englishman is a combined 45-under across those two events, his average round score is 65.38 and he's gained 2.1 shots on the field per lap. However, he returns this year on the back of missed cuts in his last two starts, last week's KLM Open and the PGA Championship. That said, if we filter out majors and WGCs, Sullivan has two top 10s and two top 20s in his five previous regular European Tour events so gamers worrying about very latest form are entitled to give him the benefit of the doubt.

Making his course debut at the East Lake, Jon Rahm looks to finish his season on a high note as he preps for this week's TOUR Championship in Atlanta, Georgia.

Rahm is playing in his first FedExCup Playoffs and they are going great, to say the least. He is the only golfer to collect top 5s in each of the first three legs with Justin Rose and Jordan Spieth being the only other two with top 10s in all three events. That steady play has only moved him up just one spot in the FEC standings since the start of the Playoffs but that is a big ONE spot. Moving from 6th to 5th in the standings means that Rahm now controls his own destiny when it comes to winning the FedExCup title. If he wins this week, the trophy and huge bonus check is all his. It may be a lot to ask of any one (picking up a fourth straight top 5 and making that fourth a win) let alone a young golfer making his debut at East Lake. However, Rahm has spent the entire season bucking trends, making him a good option in all fantasy formats.

Thomas Pieters returns to Vilamoura for a fourth appearance in the Portugal Masters hosted by the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course.

Despite a season in which he has made the top five at Riviera CC, Augusta National and Firestone, plus briefly led the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, he enters the seasonal run-in unsatisfied by his post-Ryder Cup debut campaign. Put simply he lacks the win. Whether a victory here would entirely sate his appetite is moot, but it would be a good start after a run of MC-MC-T66. He has hopes despite a 2014 debut that saw him post nothing better than a pair of 73s. A year later he opened with a 65 on his way to an always-challenging-for-the-title T6, then last year closed with another 65 for T31. The Arnold Palmer design favors aggressive drivers so it should be a neat fit for the Belgian if he can shrug off the funk.
