John Mallinger grabbed 19 points in the third round of the Barracuda Championship to reach the 54-hole mark with 28 in his pocket.

Today's total established the tournament record for most points in a single round in the three-year history that Modified Stableford scoring has been used. Mallinger's highlight was easily his hole-in-one on Montrêux G&CC's par-3 11th hole. He found the bottom of the cup from 155 yards with a 9-iron. He added seven birdies en route to a bogey-free 34-29=63. His other notable conversion was a 50'1" birdie at the par-4 17th. The irons were the key to his round as he landed 15 GIR.

Prior to the start of round one, John Peterson has withdrawn from the Shell Houston Open, giving Trey Mullinax a spot in the field.

There is no injury cited at the moment but gamers should remove Peterson from their lineups. The Fort Worth, Texas, resident arrived with a 4-for-8 record on the season, highlighted by a T12 at the Waste Management Phoenix Open. He currently sits at 126th in the FedExCup standings. We will update if any injury news becomes available.

World No. 6 Jordan Spieth sizes up the Golf Club of Houston ahead of his fifth Shell Houston Open and checks in as the pre-tourney fave (outright) for a third year in a row.

In the last 38 events on TOUR, three players have won as the favorite. Dustin Johnson once (2017 WGC-Mexico); and Spieth twice, at the 2016 DEAN & DELUCA and Hyundai TOC. He's 3-for-4 at the SHO with a MC in 2014, a playoff loss in 2015, and T13 last year (67-73-70-70). The Texan is 7-for-7 on the season with six top 25s, four top 10s and three top 3s, including his ninth TOUR title (in 100th pro start) at the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am -- as 36-hole co-leader and 54-hole leader (by six). The 36-hole co-lead was his first since the 2016 Masters, and improved to 7-for-12 as 54-hole leader/co-leader, including seven of his last nine. The two most recent that the 23-year-old hasn't converted: here in 2015, and of course, the 2016 Masters. He's chased the win at Pebble Beach with T22 (Genesis), T12 (Mexico) and a first-round exit at last week's Match Play in Austin (1-1-1 record). Speith leads the TOUR in GIR (75.69 percent).

J.B. Holmes hoisted the hardware after the 2015 Shell Houston Open and returns this week for his first crack at the Golf Club of Houston since that win.

It wasn't love at first sight for Holmes and the GC of Houston (missed cut in 2007 debut) but it's been all gravy since. Over his last five visits the big hitter has collected four top 15s including a 2009 runner-up finish and a win in 2015. When returning for his title defense last year, he was forced to withdraw prior to the start of the event with a shoulder injury, somewhat precautionary as he wanted a full bill of health for the Masters. The way things shake out, both Holmes and Jim Herman will be playing this event for the first time since winning, co-defenders, if you will. As for current form, Holmes has started the season with top 35s in all six stroke-play starts but he's yet to collect a top 10. Given his strong course resume, this week presents a nice opportunity to pick up that first top 10 of the season.

David Hearn has withdrawn from the Shell Houston Open, prior to his round one tee time. He will be replaced by alternate Richy Werenski.

The Canadian raced out to contention last week in Puerto Rico, opening with a 6-under 66 and following that up with a 3-under 69. He was T11 at the midpoint before drifting to T17 by week's end. It was Hearn's second top 20 over his last three starts, flashing a bit of form after a rough patch to start 2017. There is no injury news at this time, but we will update if that becomes apparent. In his place, Richy Werenski will get his first look at the Golf Club of Houston. UPDATE: Adam Stanley reported on Hearn via Twitter, "He and wife Heather are expecting child no.3, and likely coming soon."

World No. 76 Jim Herman makes his way back to the Golf Club of Houston for this week's Shell Houston Open, the site of his 2016 victory.

Herman arrived at last year's Houston Open ranked 189th in the world rankings. Four sub-70 rounds later he catapulted to 68th in world, and also started scrambling to prep for Augusta National. The wildcard for Herman is always the flat stick. He's finished outside the top 115 strokes gained putting in each of the last four seasons but gained 6.58 strokes with the putter last year at GC of Houston. While Herman has drifted slightly in the OWGR since winning, he did flash some form recently in Florida, earning a T3 at the Valspar Championship just three weeks ago.

Riley Arp tore through Cypresswood Golf Club during today's open qualifier, styling a 10-under-par 32-30=62 to punch his ticket into this week's Shell Houston Open. Joining him are Wesley McClain (-9), Andres Gonzales (-9), and Jason Gore (-8) with the latter needing to survive a 6-for-1 playoff.

Arp was dialed in today while taking on the Tradition Course at Cypresswood GC. He circled 11 birdies to offset a lone bogey, earning a debut on the PGA TOUR for his efforts. Arp has been playing well recently on the Adams Pro Tour, starting the season with back-to-back top 10s. It was a good day for the Adams Pro Tour as Wesley McClain also spends his time there, and also qualified with a blemish-free 63. The Shell Houston Open will also be his PGA TOUR debut. Golfers who finished at 8-under 64 but fell shy in the playoff include: Roger Sloan, Brady Schnell, Martin Trainer, Sebastian Vazquez, and Daniel Chopra.

Prior to the start of the event, Dustin Johnson has backed out of this week's Shell Houston Open, instead turning his attention toward Augusta National Golf Club for the first major of the year. Scott Stallings earns a spot in the field in his place.

Johnson has used the Golf Club of Houston on five occasions to prep for the Masters. That includes a third-place finish last year, a mid-tournament WD in 2014, and a T4 in 2013. This year he's decided to alter his plans after originally committing at the deadline but deciding otherwise after hoisting the boots at the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play. That was the third straight win for the World No. 1 (Genesis Open, WGC-Mexico Championship) so there was really nothing to gain by entering this week's event. With Johnson's form in top gear, he will head down Magnolia Lane next week as one of the clear favorites.

Making his tournament debut, 21-seed Jon Rahm lost to top-seeded and World No. 1 Dustin Johnson in the Finals of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play to take away solo 2nd and end with a record of 6-1-0.

This was the 22-year-old's second WGC event, finishing T3 at the Mexico Championship in his last start three weeks ago, also won by Johnson. He reached the Final with a 3-and-2 win over Bill Haas in the morning semis. It was the Spaniard's 21st career start on TOUR (16 pro) and is a third straight top-5 finish, fourth in his last five. He got in a huge hole early against the 1-seed, 5 DOWN thru eight holes, but trimmed that to three after winning holes 9 and 10 (with pars). DJ won 12 with birdie-4 but Rahm took the par-4 13th with a 2-putt birdie after driving the green, his first birdie of the contest. He then won 15 and 16, also with birdies, now 1 DOWN with two to go, but that was the final margin after matching pars at 17 and 18. Each player circled three birdies in the finale.
Mar 26 - 7:40 PM

1-seed Dustin Johnson staved off 21-seed Jon Rahm 1 UP to claim the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play for his 15th TOUR title in 208 career starts, third this season and third straight, and became the first player to win all four WGC titles.

This was the 32-year-old's ninth Match Play with a previous best of T5 last year where he won his Group but lost in the quarters (3-2-0 record). He went a perfect 7-0-0 this year en route to his fifth overall WGC title in 29 tries. The South Carolina native began his 3-win streak at the Genesis Open, where he had to play 36 holes on Sunday, and had to play 36 again today, outlasting Hideto Tanihara 1 UP in the semis. The World No. 1, who never trailed a single hole all week, built a commanding 5 UP lead thru eight against the 22-year-old Spaniard, but Rahm trimmed that to three with par wins at 9 and 10. DJ won the 12th with birdie-4, now 4 UP with six to go, but Rahm won 13, 15 and 16 with birdies. The duo traded a couple of hair-raising pars for the final margin with DJ shooting the equivalent of 1-under 70 (three birdies) and Rahm 71 (three birdies).

Making his tournament debut, 54-seed Hideto Tanihara lost his last two matches on Sunday at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play but departs with a career-TOUR-best solo 4th and an overall record of 4-2-1.

The 14-time winner on the Japan Tour was making a 45th career start on the PGA TOUR, fourth in a WGC event. His previous best in a non-WGC was T5 at the 2006 Open Championship and his previous best in a WGC was T32 at this year's Mexico Championship. Besides the 38-year-old's surprise run to the consolation match, which will get the World No. 60 into the Masters in two weeks, he'll leave with one more fantastic memory from Sunday afternoon, acing the 207-yard par-3 seventh using an 8-iron. (VIDEO LINK below).
Mar 26 - 6:50 PM

42-seed Bill Haas rallied to a 2-and-1 win over 54-seed Hideto Tanihara in the consolation match of the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and claimed 3rd place with an overall record of 5-2-0.

This was Haas' seventh Match Play with a previous-best T9 last year where he won his Group but lost in the Round of 16. It was his 28th overall WGC event and eclipses a previous-best T4 at this season's HSBC Champions. The 34-year-old bounced back from a 3-and-2 loss to Jon Rahm in the morning semis. He was 1 DOWN thru four holes against the Japanese first-timer but squared the match with birdie-3 at five. Tanihara moved back to 1 UP with an ace at the par-3 seventh, and 2 UP at the turn, winning the ninth with par. Haas leveled the contest claiming the 10th and 11th, the latter with birdie-2 (from 28 inches) after a fortuitous bounce off the hill. He lost the 12th (concession) but moved back to 1 UP with par wins at 13 and 14, and closed out at 17 with par while Tanihara 3-putted from 37'4" for bogey.
