With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 in his third round of the 96th PGA Championship, Bernd Wiesberger sits at 12-under 201, just one stroke adrift of Rory McIlroy's 54-hole lead.

Wiesberger caught fire late in his round, circling birdies on each of his last three holes at Valhalla Golf Club after spreading his first three circles across 15 holes. While he did manage to hole a 10'10" birdie at the par-4 12th hole, the highlight was an approach to six inches for a kick-in birdie at the par-4 17th. This tournament is shaping up to be a star-studded affair on Sunday. The 28-year-old Austrian is aiming to shock the golfing world and emerge victorious with his first major championship title. He entered the week 70th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Perhaps most impressive is that he's played the trio of par 5s this week in just even par with one birdie and one bogey. In contrast, McIlroy is 6-under on the same holes.

14-seed Ryan Moore signed for a week-tying-low 4-under-par 31-35=66 after the third round of the TOUR Championship to reach 6-under 204, up two places to T3, two back of 54-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Kevin Chappell.

Chasing a Ryder Cup pick, the 33-year-old has posted progressively better laps of 70-68-66. Today's round started off with a bang, circling birdies on Nos. 1, 2, 5 and 7 to turn bogey-free 4-under, but stalled out from there, exchanging further birdies on 12 and 17 with bogeys at 11 and 15, missing a pair of par-savers from inside of nine feet. Moore carded his six par breakers on 12 greens in regulation for a tidy 1.500 putts per GIR, highlighted by a 38-footer for birdie-3 at the fifth. He saved par three times from between eight and 13 feet, contributing to 1.533 SG: Putting.

6-seed Rory McIlroy matched the low round of the week with a bogey-free 4-under-par 34-32=66 on Moving Day at the TOUR Championship to reach 6-under 204, up two places to T3, two shy of 54-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Kevin Chappell.

The World No. 3 won the second leg of the Playoffs at TPC Boston in come-from-behind fashion, erasing a six-shot deficit with a closing 65 to clip 54-hole leader Paul Casey by two. He's much closer this time after posting just the fourth bogey-free round of the week thus far. The Ulsterman began R3 in a three-way T5, five shy of Johnson. He finally conquered the first nine at East Lake, circling the par-4 eighth from 4'10" to turn 1-under, adding further birdies at 13 and 16, both from inside of eight feet, and a two-putt from 39'11" for birdie-4 at the 18th. He peppered 17 greens in regulation contributing to 4.306 SG: Tee-to-Green, but lost 1.356 strokes with the flat stick, missing four mid-range scoring chances from inside of 12 feet.

Making his Playoffs finale debut, 15-seed and first-round tri-leader Kevin Chappell orchestrated a bogey-free 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the third round of the TOUR Championship to catch overnight leader Dustin Johnson and share the top spot on 8-under 202.

Three times a runner-up this season in 26 prior starts, the 30-year-old is chasing his first TOUR title in his 167th career event. This is his fifth lead/co-lead in 2015-16 after ANY round, but first time at the three-quarter pole. Chappell kicked off with 11 straight pars before breaking the ice with a pitch-in from behind the green at the 12th for birdie-3. Four pars later, he connected from 8'5" for birdie at the par-4 17th that completed his scoring. The Californian landed 13 green in regulation and leads in that stat at 79.63 percent (43/54). He has bagged two of the four bogey-free rounds at East Lake thru 54 holes.

Overnight leader Dustin Johnson bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to post 8-under 202, dropping into a share of the lead with Kevin Chappell.

The FedExCup leader began the third frame with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Chappell, his fourth 36-hole lead/co-lead this season in his 22nd start. He raced out with three straight circles on holes 4-6, but gave one back at the par-4 seventh (failed scramble) to turn 2-under. The 32-year-old, who co-led with Chappell after R1, missed birdie from 8'10" at the par-3 11th, but coaxed in a 12-footer for birdie-3 at 12. Back-to-back bogeys followed on 13 and 14, the former a 3-putt from 70 feet, before dropping a 14-footer for birdie-2 at 15. Johnson swallowed an all-over-the-yard double bogey-6 at the 17th, but bounced back with an up-and-down birdie on 18 from 4'6". This is his second 54-hole lead/co-lead this season, converting his first at the BMW Championship, where he led outright.

PGA TOUR rookie and 9-seed Emiliano Grillo crafted a week-tying-low 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the TOUR Championship to post 1-under 209, up nine spots to solo 10th with play still in progress.

The 24-year-old kicked off his Playoffs finale debut in 73-70 to sit T19 on 3-over, 10 back of 36-hole leader Dustin Johnson. He squared bogeys on eight (failed scramble) and a walk-off 6 at 18 after putting his second into the water, but overshadowed them with six birdies, including three straight on Nos. 11-13. The Argentine found eight (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.600 putts per GIR and 3.049 SG: Putting. All six of his circles traveled greater than eight feet highlighted by a 48'11" bomb on the par-4 seventh.

16-seed Matt Kuchar fashioned a bogey-free 2-under-par 34-34=68 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to reach the three-quarter mark on even-par 210, joining Kevin Chappell's 66 in R1 as the only blemish-free rounds of the week thus far.

The 38-year-old stumbled to a 73 in yesterday's second frame, outbalancing four birdies with five bogeys and a double, but rebounded with a clean card on Day 3 at East Lake to move five places to T11 with play still in progress. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and is currently leading the field in that stat at 73.81 percent (31/42). The Georgia Tech alum hit 14 greens in regulation, circling the par-5 sixth from 4'1" and the par-3 11th from 27'8", posting a pedestrian 1.857 putts per GIR though 1.400 in SG: Putting. He rolled in three par-savers from between five and nine feet but did miss a scoring chance from 6'7" at the par-4 17th.

24-seed Bubba Watson tossed up a week-tying-low 4-under-par 32-34=66 in today's third round of the TOUR Championship to post 1-over 211, up 11 places to T14 with play still in progress.

Vying for the final Captain's Pick at next week's Ryder Cup, the 37-year-old succumbed to the added pressure in the first two rounds, opening in 72-73 to sit in solo 25th-place (of 29 players) on 5-over. He circled just four birdies thru 36 holes and averaged a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR in both laps, but rebounded on Day 3 to card six on 14 greens in regulation for 1.571 putts per GIR and 2.306 SG: Putting. Watson didn't birdie either of the par 5s, but recorded six birdie-3s, highlighted by a 29-footer at the eighth. He took some luster off with back-to-back bogeys at 14 (failed scramble) and 15, watering his tee ball on the par-3 15th.

Alexander Levy made par on the final hole of his second round Saturday morning to complete an 8-under-par 31-32=63 and lead the Porsche European Open by four on 17-under 125 at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

Frequent weather delays and the pressing call of next week's Ryder Cup necessitated a reduction of the event to 54-holes so the Frenchman has only 18 holes to negotiate if he wants to claim a third European Tour title. Levy's second round started on the back nine Friday afternoon, when he notched five birdies to total 31 for the second round running. He made three red numbers on the front nine, rather than the four in round one. He's needed just 50 swipes of the putter so far in a sparkling display that also saw him inches from a hole-in-one. There maybe a sense of deja vu for Levy: he won the 2014 Portual Masters going low in a reduced tournament. Michael Jonzon is his nearest challenger on 13-under; the final round will start Sunday, in three-balls from two tees.

Tag Ridings torched the Scarlet Course at The Ohio State University Golf Club en route to a 6-under-par 34-31=65 during the second round of the Nationwide Children's Hospital Championship, sharing the clubhouse lead with Martin Flores on 8-under 134.

The 42-year-old started the week ranked 36 in The Finals 25 as he attempts to play his way back onto the PGA TOUR. He made great progress today as he circled seven birdies while swallowing just one bogey on the way, despite landing just 11 greens in regulation. His 6-for-7 scrambling effort included a hole out from the rough at the par-4 10th to open his round. Ridings owns a 107-for-219 record on the PGA TOUR but hasn't played on the big stage since a missed cut at the 2015 FedEx St. Jude Classic.

Kevin Chappell pieced together a 2-under-par 32-36=68 during round two of the TOUR Championship to reach 6-under 134 on the week, placing him one stroke off the leader Dustin Johnson heading into the weekend.

The UCLA product circled three birdies on the day and did all that scoring in one fell swoop, rattling off a birdie train which started with an 11'4" splash at the par-5 sixth. Chappell swallowed his first bogey of the round (and week) at the par-3 11th when he found the rough and couldn't get up-and-down. The Ryder Cup hopeful has done his damage tee-to-green this week as he ranks first in GIR (30) and strokes gained approach-the-green (+5.521). Entering the week ranked 15th in the FedExCup race, Chappell will need to win his first PGA TOUR event and also have Dustin Johnson fall outside the top eight if he wants a chance at the FedExCup trophy. Chappell would surely be quite satisfied with a win, regardless of whether he gets the FEC trophy as well.

Overnight tri-leader Dustin Johnson styled a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 7-under 133, good for a one-shot lead over overnight tri-leader Kevin Chappell.

The FedExCup leader landed eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.583 putts per GIR and 0.936 SG: Putting. He went out in bogey-free 2-under, circling back-to-backs at Nos. 5 and 6, both from between six and seven feet. The 32-year-old connected two more birdies on 10 and 11, both from inside of 10 feet, and then outbalanced a 12-footer for birdie-3 at 16 with bogeys at 12 and 17 on failed scrambles. This is his 22nd start of the season and fourth time he's led/co-led thru 36 holes (second straight event), converting 2 of 3 thus far into victories (2016 U.S. Open, 2016 BMW Championship). DJ also co-led the RBC Canadian Open thru 36, eventually finishing T2.
