Nick Watney could only add 6 points to his tally in the third round of the Barracuda Championship with a 2-under-par 35-35=70, and his 32 points are tied for second with Jason Allred.

Watney's four birdies outpaced his two bogeys at Montrêux G&CC, but he couldn't get much going with the flat stick with the exception of a 10'6" birdie at the par-4 12th. He had a birdie putt from 6'9" on the par-5 18th to take second alone and pull within 1 point of Geoff Ogilvy, but couldn't convert. Due to the threat of inclement weather later in the day, the final round will be played in threesomes off both tees beginning at 8:00 a.m. PT.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Pablo Larrazábal maintained his recent stunning levels of golf to card a second round 6-under-par 33-33=66 which earned him the halfway lead in the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC on 14-under 130, three clear of Alexander Levy and Dylan Frittelli.

For most of Friday it was a continuation of the wonderful game the Spaniard has been displaying for the last week in China. He opened with four pars before ticking 5, 6 and 8 prior to the turn. He made mincemeat of the 317-yard par-4 11th, with an eagle-2, and followed it with a birdie-4 at the 12th. Another par breaker followed at 15 to open up a gap of four at the top. An 8'0" par saver at the short 16th meant he had played 81 holes without a bogey (carrying on from last week's Shenzhen International), but he finally squared a hole at 17. When he failed to get up-and-down for birdie at the par-5 18th his lead remained at three. This is his third solo lead at halfway and fifth including shares; he is 1-for-5 at converting the win. His 130 36-hole total equals the tournament low.

Dylan Frittelli torched Topwin Golf & CC for a bogey-free 9-under-par 30-33=63 in Friday’s second round at the Volvo China Open, posting 11-under 133 and surging into a three-shot clubhouse lead over compatriot George Coetzee.

The South African had mixed four birdies with two bogeys in his opening lap of 70 but cashed in on his morning tee-time in Beijing today to leap from T26 to first spot. Frittelli started fast, opening with a red number at 10 and pouring in eagle-2 at the short 290-yard par-4 11th. After settling with three pars, he splashed three more birdies at 15, 17 and 18 to turn in just 30 blows. The World No. 123 kept the momentum going with further gains at 3, 6 and 8 coming home. The 26-year-old has marked gamers’ cards in recent months with a run of four top 20s in his last five worldwide starts including T5 in last week’s event in China, the Shenzhen International. Frittelli graduated from the Challenge Tour last year and currently slots in at 57th on the Race to Dubai. His best European Tour finish is T2 in 2015’s Australian PGA Championship.

Texas natives Jordan Spieth and Ryan Palmer tag-teamed TPC Louisiana in round one of the Zurich Classic, walking off the course with a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 to grab a share of the early lead in Avondale, Louisiana.

It was steady ball-striking that allowed them team to rack up six birdies today, but it was great scrambling that glued this round together. Particularly on the back nine where they saved par from 8'3", 11'0", and 6'3" to maintain a clean card instead of dropping a shot or two. Spieth also added a bonus birdie when he holed out a 36-yard chip at the par-3 14th. Given their ability to rack up birdies in bunches, gamers probably expected this team to shine in the four-ball format which will take place tomorrow as well as Sunday, but they proved today that alternate shot suits them just fine. They will enter round two with a share of the lead with Ryan Ruffels & Kyle Stanley.

Playing alternate shot on day one of the Zurich Classic, Kyle Stanley and Ryan Ruffels blitzed TPC Louisiana with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 to claim the early title of clubhouse leaders.

This duo opened their week on the 10th tee and rattled off four straight birdies to start the day. They settled for a 13'5" par saver at the par-3 14th, but added four more circles on the homeward nine. This team arrived with lofty expectations, tee-to-green, but their flat sticks would be the wildcard. They showed up in a big way today, converting six putts from outside eight feet on the day (three apiece). Ball-striking was still the main asset as they gave themselves 13 birdie looks from inside 25 feet today. Playing without any TOUR status, the 18-year-old Ruffels would love to maintain this momentum all week, while Stanley is still searching for his second career TOUR win, failing to reach the winner's circle since the 2012 Waste Management Phoenix Open. Perhaps two extra set of eyes will help him on the greens this week.

Playing foursomes on day one of the Zurich Classic, K.J. Choi and Charlie Wi coasted to a 5-under-par 33-34=67 to stake their claim as early clubhouse leaders with play still in progress. UPDATE: Kyle Stanley & Ryan Ruffels would later post a 6-under 66 to surpass Choi & Wi.

The South Korean tandem opened their week on the 10th tee and rattled off five pars and a bogey before rounding into gear. From there, they pieced together a four-hole birdie train that went through the turn and included three putts converted from outside 18 feet, two of them knocked in by Choi. Putting was the story of the day for this duo who walked off the course with seven putts splashed in from outside nine feet, six of those from outside 13 feet. Arriving without much form this week, they are leaning on course knowledge as they both have a podium finish to their credit at TPC Louisiana in 15 previous combined trips to the Pete Dye design.

China specialist Alexander Levy thrashed a nine-under-par 33-30=63 to set the clubhouse target early in round one of the Volvo China Open at Topwin Golf & CC.

The Frenchman was a winner of the China Open in 2014 and in total has five top ten finished in 11 visits to the country. Just last week a round one 74 in the Shenzhen International couldn't stop him finishing T8 as he added 68-64-69; with a smart start this week he might easily add a second China Open title. Opening on the back nine he ticked 13, 15 and 17 before blitzing the front nine. He splashed red across 2, 3, 4 and 5 then closed out with back-to-back birdies at 8 and 9. It is the third time he has carded 63 in China, but his career-low in the country remains the 62 he made in round two of his win in 2014. He lunched holding a one shot lead over Spain's Pablo Larrazabal who was three ahead of Peter Hanson and Jame Morrison in third. No less than 19 players carded 3-under or better on a day of low scoring.
