Abraham Ancer posted a 3-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the Nova Scotia Open and survived a playoff against Bronson Burgoon to capture his first career Web.com Tour win in just his 18th attempt.

Acner finished the week at 13-under 271 and moves from 39th to fourth on the Web.com Tour money list. That will assure him of a 2015-16 PGA TOUR card. He was lucky just to earn a spot in the playoff, as he had to birdie the par-4 18th just to join the fun. He repeated the feat in the first playoff hole, ousting Burgoon with the birdie. Ancer had four birdies on his card in regulation to go with a long bogey at Ashburn GC. He turned pro in 2013 after a collegiate career at Oklahoma, so his imminent ascent to the PGA TOUR via the Web.com Tour at the end of the season has taken very little time.

Greg Owen capped his week at The Old White TPC with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 269, good for an exemption into The Open Championship.

Owen started the day outside the top 10, and then traded five birdies with two bogeys. He hit 17 greens in regulation, failed to salvage par on the other hole and added a three-putt bogey at the par-3 eighth hole. The top four, not otherwise exempt, inside the top 12 and ties today punched tickets to St. Andrews. The Englishman was one of five tied for sixth place not already exempt, but after David Hearn (T1) and Danny Lee (T1) secured the first two spots, Owen wrangled his for having the second-best Official World Golf Ranking (194th). James Hahn (T6) is 106th, so he received the other berth. The trio that failed to collect consisted of Bryce Molder (248th), Andres Romero (315th) and Chad Collins (350th). Of today's qualifiers, only Owen (seven appearances) and Hearn (one appearance) have competed in the season's third major.

Danny Lee carded a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 13-under 267 and will head to a playoff with Kevin Kisner, Robert Streb and David Hearn to decide the champion.

Lee, 57th in the FedExCup standings, has a season-best T3 at the OHL Classic at Mayakoba (26 starts) and a career-best solo second (97 prior starts) at the 2014 Puerto Rico Open. He began the day at 10-under (T5) and one swing off the pace. On his round, he split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, registering 1.692 putts per GIR, currently first in that stat for the week. He overshadowed one bogey with four birdies at Nos. 6, 8, 13 and 17. He had a 18'2" putt at the last to move to 14-under, but missed. The 24-year-old, making his third Greenbrier appearance, finished T16 in last year's edition, missing the cut in 2012.

Robert Streb navigated the final round of The Greenbrier Classic in 5-under-par 33-32=65 to join Kevin Kisner as the 72-hole clubhouse leader at 13-under 267.

Streb, 12th in the FedExCup standings, began his final frame at 8-under (T12) and three shots adrift. He outpaced one bogey with two birdies on his outward nine to turn 1-under. The story line here is Streb broke his putter walking off the ninth green after tossing it to his caddie, it hit the bag and the head fell off. He made five birdies using his 56-degree wedge on his homeward half, circling par breakers at Nos. 10, 11, 13, 16 and 18, including a 26-footer at the par-4 13th. Streb squared bogey at the par-5 17th, three-putting (or is that three-wedging) from just over 23 feet. The 28-year-old, winner of the McGladrey Classic back in October of the wraparound season (in a playoff) might be on his way to another sudden-death finish. His previous best at The Old White TPC in two prior appearances was T41 in 2013.

Kevin Kisner hung up a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's final round of The Greenbrier Classic to put 13-under 267 on the board and wrestling the 72-hole clubhouse lead from Russell Henley.

Kisner, twice a runner-up in 2015, began his final frame at 7-under (T17) and four strokes back of the 54-hole leaders. After birdie at the par-3 15th (from 15 inches), his sixth of the day, he joined the lead at 12-under. Two holes later, he circled his seventh par breaker of the day, draining a 15-footer for outright possession of the lead. It was his longest conversion on the day. The 31-year-old, who hadn't made the weekend in three prior Greenbrier appearances, converted three scoring chances from outside of 11 feet, squaring his lone bogey at the par-4 seventh. Kisner, 14th in the FedExCup standings, is in position for his first PGA TOUR title in his 97th career start. He had a look at 7-under 63 to match low round of the day, but left his 16'8" birdie putt at the last just short.

Overnight leader Jaco Van Zyl couldn't convert on victory at the Open de France in Paris, but he still collected an exemption into The Open Championship.

The top three inside the top 10 and ties at Le Golf National in Paris not otherwise exempt into the season's third major received tee times at St. Andrews on July 16. Van Zyl went 0-for-12 in scoring opportunities today and squared two bogeys to post 8-under 276, good for third place five strokes off Bernd Wiesberger's winning pace. The South African has never competed in an Open Championship. James Morrison also earned a berth as the runner-up today. The Englishman tied for 23rd in his only Open appearance in 2012. Alone in fifth place at 5-under 279, Rafa Cabrera-Bello gobbled up the final exemption. The Spaniard will be making his fourth consecutive appearance in his continent's major.

With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-34=65 in today's final round of the Open de France to post 13-under 271, Bernd Wiesberger recorded a three-stroke victory over James Morrison.

Starting the finale three strokes off Jaco Van Zyl's 54-hole lead, Wiesberger played in the penultimate pairing at Le Golf National in Paris today. The Austrian went 4-for-4 in scrambling and connected for six birdies, five of which in a six-hole stretch to conclude his outward nine. A walk-off birdie at the par-4 18th merely established the margin of victory. "It's been a great first half of the year for me so far," said Wiesberger, who began 2015 with four straight top-six finishes and added a co-runner-up in Ireland in late May. "I've had a lot of great success but just couldn't pull it quite off. To stand here with the trophy right now, it's pretty sweet." Van Zyl finished alone in third place five swings back of the champ. This is Wiesberger's third European Tour victory. It exempts him into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational where he hasn't competed since his debut in 2012.

Will MacKenzie withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic prior to the start of the final round due to a knee injury.

He was in the first pairing scheduled out at 8:10 a.m. ET on Sunday with Louis Oosthuizen. For the tournament, he was at 1-over-par T78 (tied last) on rounds of 70-68-73. Of note, MacKenzie was mentioning a stiff neck in a TV interview prior to his third round at last week's Travelers Championship, where he sat 6-under at the break. Commentary was that he required physical therapy and would try not to WD. He closed in 6-over 72-74 to finish T68. This is the 40-year-old's fourth mid-tournament WD in 214 career starts and first since the Valero Texas Open in 2010. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's John Deere Classic.
Jul 5 - 9:54 AM

Bryce Molder signed for a 3-under-par 31-36=67 after today's third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 199, good for a four-way tie for the lead after 54 holes with Jason Bohn, Sean O'Hair, and S.J. Park.

Molder, playing in the penultimate pairing with Chad Collins, began his final frame in a six-way logjam at 8-under (T3) and just one off the pace. He grabbed some early momentum, circling three birdies on his outward half, but stalled out with nine consecutive pars to conclude his day. On a positive note, he stayed in the title chase by going 4-for-4 in scrambling on his inward nine, three of those were par-saving putts between five and seven feet. Molder, 102nd in the FedExCup standings, split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation, and with three rounds in the books, he ranks first in strokes gained: putting and T1 in strokes gained: total. The 36-year-old hit on his season-best T3 (18 starts) at the season-opening Frys.com Open back in October and is his only top 10 of his 2014-15 campaign. Coincidentally, his lone PGA TOUR win (225 career starts) came at the Frys.com Open as well, in 2011.
Jul 4 - 6:13 PM

S.J. Park tacked on a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 199, good for a share of the 54-hole lead with Jason Bohn, Sean O'Hair and Bryce Molder.

Park, a rookie on the PGA TOUR, began the festivities at 7-under (T10) and two shots adrift. The 29-year-old is making some splash in his Greenbrier debut, not only tied for the lead, but played his second consecutive round without a blemish on the card. In fact, it's been 49 holes since he last squared bogey at the sixth hole in the first round. Further, it's his only bogey of the week, currently first in that stat for the tournament. Park split 12 (of 14) fairways on Saturday, and landed 15 greens in regulation, circling par breakers on Nos. 2, 8, 10 and 16. His 15'2" roll on the par-4 10th was his longest conversion on the day. His highlight of the round however, came at the par-3 eighth, flying his tee ball 199 yards to 11 inches for the gimme birdie. Park is 10-for-20 on his 2014-15 campaign with a season-best T2 at the Humana Challenge, his only top-25 finish of the season.
Jul 4 - 5:52 PM

Sean O'Hair carved out a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to join Jason Bohn and S.J. Park as 54-hole clubhouse leaders at 11-under 199.

O'Hair began Moving Day in a six-way tie for 10th at 7-under, four shots off the pace of the 54-hole leaders. He exchanged two birdies with two bogeys to turn even. The 32-year-old, who finished T7 in the 2012 Greenbrier, lit up his inward half, circling par breakers on Nos. 11, 12, 14 and 16. For his efforts, O'Hair split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation and at last check, was a cumulative 8.778 in strokes gained: total, currently T2 in that stat for the tournament. His six-birdie set featured four conversions in excess of 10 feet, highlighted by a 40-foot bomb for the birdie-2 at the third. O'Hair, who missed his last three cuts entering the week, recorded a season-best P2 at the Valspar Championship back in March.
