Steve Stricker learned on Tuesday that he has a torn labrum in his left hip, according to Todd Lewis of Golf Channel.

The discomfort prompted Stricker to have an MRI this week. He's had symptoms since mid-June. It doesn't bother him much while swinging the golf club, but he finds his lower body getting fatigued throughout a round. Walking downhill is particularly bothersome. Stricker is taking anti-inflammatories for the injury. Meanwhile, in a bit of good news, Tom Watson has added Stricker as an assistant captain for the Ryder Cup at Gleneagles. He joins fellow assistants Raymond Floyd and Andy North. "It was an honor for [Watson] to call me and just to be a part of it," Stricker said. "Just to be there and try to have that opportunity to get the cup back, and to play for Tom, for all the guys, is a dream come true."

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.

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.
Jul 4 - 5:25 PM

Jason Bohn went out early and threw up a 9-under-par 29-32=61 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 11-under 199, good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

Bohn was in the fifth group out on Moving Day at 8:46 a.m. ET, a full five hours and twenty minutes before the overnight co-leaders were scheduled to tee off. The 42-year-old began his final frame at 2-under (T62), having made the cut on the number, and was seven shots off the pace. After circling five birdies through his first 36 holes, Bohn doubled-up on that total on Saturday with 10 birdies against one bogey (at the par-4 11th). For his efforts, he peppered 13 (of 14 fairways), hit 14 greens in regulation and registered 6.041 strokes gained: putting at the time he signed his card. His par breakers included five conversions from outside 11 feet, including a 19'3" birdie roll at the par-4 second for his longest of the day. Bohn's 61 is the low round of the tournament thus far besting Scott Langley's 62 in round one. It's also a career low for the veteran of 942 PGA TOUR rounds.
Jul 4 - 12:57 PM

Jaco Van Zyl blitzed Le Golf National for a 7-under-par 33-31=64 on Saturday to move into a two-shot lead after three rounds of the Open de France.

That's the lowest lap of the week so far and puts the South African in prime position to secure his first European Tour win. At 10-under 203 he's two strokes clear of Germany's Maximilian Kieffer, with Austrian Bernd Wiesberger a further shot back in third. Two-time major champion Martin Kaymer, local hero Victor Dubuisson and England's in-form James Morrison are four shots back at 6-under. Van Zyl made his move with birdies at 3 and 5 and accelerated around the turn with further par breakers at 9, 10 and 11. Yesterday he played the final three holes in 3-over but the 36-year-old negotiated them in five shots better today after closing birdie-par-birdie. Van Zyl was superb from tee-to-green in round three, splitting 13 (of 14) fairways and hitting all 18 greens.
Jul 4 - 12:07 PM

Webb Simpson will get an early start on his preparation for The Open Championship after missing the cut at The Greenbrier Classic.

After missing the cut in the inaugural Greenbrier in 2010, Simpson connected four paydays, three of which for a top 10. That string ended today with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his second round. At 3-over 143, he fell five shots outside the bubble to play on. He'll take next week off. Other notables who failed to survive today's cut include: 139--2013 champ Jonas Blixt; Daniel Berger; Marc Leishman; Steve Stricker ... 140--Bill Haas; Nick Watney; Charles Howell III; Colt Knost; Nick Taylor ... 141--Cameron Tringale; Rory Sabbatini; Scott Pinckney ... 145--Fabian Gomez ... 148--Daniel Summerhays.
Jul 3 - 7:50 PM

Overnight leader Scott Langley hung on for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 131 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Jhonattan Vegas.

The lefty went 2-for-3 in scrambling with a bogey but added a three-putt bogey from outside 54 feet at the par-3 15th hole. Elsewhere, he picked off three birdies, including runs of 30'3" at the par-5 17th and 24 feet at the par-4 sixth. He missed only two looks inside 11 feet, but those are magnified given the competition. Consider that there are 15 golfers inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and within two swings of the lead. Langley ranks T2 with 32 greens in regulation and T5 in birdies, but he knows that he'll have to keep the pedal floored if he's going to collect his first hardware on the PGA TOUR.
