Rory McIlroy submitted a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of the PGA Championship to carry a one-stroke advantage over Bernd Wiesberger at 13-under 200 into the finale.

While McIlroy was unable to pull away at Valhalla Golf Club on Saturday, he did just enough to maintain his advantage over the field. He got on the board with a 12'3" birdie at the par-4 fifth, then added another at the seventh before dropping his first of two bogeys at the par-4 eighth. An 11'4" birdie at the par-5 10th was erased by a bogey at the par-4 12th, but the Ulsterman responded with three birdies over his final four holes to regain control. His 20'10" birdie at the par-4 15th served to get him back on track and sticking his approach on the par-4 16th to 25 inches proved once again that he wasn't going anywhere. His birdie at the par-5 18th was the icing on the cake. He will try and claim his second Wanamaker Trophy, and fourth major championship, in Sunday's final round.

Tonu Finau flew up the leaderboard in round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, firing a 5-under-par 30-35=65, rising 55 spots on the live leaderboard to T7 at 3-under 137 heading into the weekend.

This is deja vu for Finau owners who opened with a 5-over 75 last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson before twirling a 5-under 65 on day two. This time around he was three better in R1 (2-over 72 yesterday) but still did most of his damage in round two. The highlights started early today as he splashed home a 20'10" putt for eagle at the par-5 first hole. His putter would stay hot as he drained five total putts from outside 18 feet today, gaining 2.642 strokes putting. This matches the low round of the week so far and goes in the books as his new personal best at Colonial Country Club (previously a 66 in R3 of 2015 edition).

A short missed putt for eagle at the final hole cost Francesco Molinari the sole clubhouse lead after 36 holes of the BMW PGA Championship; his 2-under-par 36-34=70 gave him a halfway total of 7-under 137.

The early signs were not good for the Italian who has a base near to the Surrey course. He made bogey at the 3rd and 5th, with a birdie in between at the 4th. But the back nine was a much smarter affair, as he ticked the 13th, 17th and 18th, the latter after he left a 8'0" eagle putt in the jaws of the hole. In his first six visits to the West Course he never finished better than T17. Since then he has four top tens in five starts. He's twice had a solo lead at halfway (in 2013 and 2015), but is yet to finish better than T5. He shares the lead with Scott Jamieson and Thomas Pieters, with two and a half hours play remaining after he signed his card.

Camilo Villegas finished 25 holes at 7-over before withdrawing from this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. There is no injury cited at the time.

Villegas opened his week with a 5-over-par 37-38=75 that included just one birdie. The 35-year-old missed two putts from inside six feet along the way. He kicked off his second round on the back nine and kept the short-range misses coming. He missed putts from 5'4", 7'4", and 4'3" over his opening seven holes. Then at the par-4 17th he found water off the tee and later missed two putts from inside five feet. That was the last we saw of Villegas. There was no injury cited at the time of WD, but given the play-by-play directly before the WD, there is a decent chance this is a "frustation WD".

Scott Jamieson overcame a poor start to steer his way into a tie for the lead late in the second round of the BMW PGA Championship; his 2-under-par 35-35=70 gave him a 7-under 137 which equalled the clubhouse lead of Thomas Pieters.

The Scot was flagging early in his round, making a bogey-5 at the 1st and then adding double bogey-6 at the 3rd. There was a brief recovery with birdie-4 at the 4th only to give the shot back at the 5th. His response was magnificent as he ticked six of the next seven holes (6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12). That left him one clear of Pieters on 8-under, but a bogey at the par-4 15th and a failure to birdie either of the par-5 final two holes meant he shared honors with the Belgian. Should they not be passed it would be a third 36-hole lead on the European Tour for Jamieson (including ties, but not including the 36-hole victory he achieved with the weather-shortened 2012 Nelson Mandela Invitational).

J.J. Spaun withdrew from the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational prior to his round-two tee time. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Spaund twirled a 1-over-par 35-36=71 on day one. Nothing in his stats indicated an injury but most noticable blunder was a missed putt from 18 inches at the par-4 17th. While his opening round was nothing to write home about, Spaun was still inside the cut line at that point. The PGA TOUR rookie was set to tee off at 7:11 a.m. CT this morning but he instead withdrew from the event. We will update if any more details surface.

Thomas Pieters cruised to a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in round two of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, moving a shot clear of Maximilian Kieffer and setting the new 36-hole clubhouse lead of 7-under 137.

The Belgian, whose last 72-hole strokeplay start was T4 at the Masters, picked off four birdies against a single birdie today. Stats are still unavailable on the European Tour website (we've asked them several times) but Pieters said later he hit a lot more fairways and greens in round two and, having had to work really hard for his opening 68, today's 69 was less stressful. It was a fairly simple formula for the big hitter as he two-putted for par most of the way and then scribbled birdies on three of the West Course's par fives (4, 12 and 17). The only other deviations from par were an early bogey at No. 3 and a birdie-3 at 9. Everything looks smooth so far for Pieters although he did say "my back hurts a bit" when discussing his round with host broadcaster Sky Sports.

Dallas resident Kelly Kraft cruised to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round one of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, staking out an early claim of the clubhouse lead, sharing that title with Derek Fathauer and J.T. Poston.

Playing in a home game this week, Kraft kicked off the week with a 5-birdie effort, highlighted by a hot putter. Throughout the day he sank three putts from outside 15 feet, including a 39'11" birdie bomb at the par-3 16th. Kraft would walk off the course gaining 2.79 strokes putting over the field. All of those chances were setup by steady striking, giving himself 10 birdie looks from inside 20 feet today. That kept the round relatively stress-free, despite the blustery conditions he had to play through. Kraft is making his 51st start on the PGA TOUR and this will go in the books as his first lead/co-lead after ANY round.

J.T. Poston breezed through Colonial Country Club in round one of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, recording a 5-under-par 32-33=65 to grab a share of the clubhouse lead alongside Derek Fathauer and Kelly Kraft.

Poston had a rough time at last week's AT&T Byron Nelson, posting rounds of 78-72=150 (+10) to easily miss the cut after earning a paycheck in nine straight starts before that. He didn't let that result keep him down for long, and hit the reset button to clear that from his mind. Today's bounce back involved some stellar ball-striking to smother 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.515 strokes approach-the-green. Highlights on the green included a pair of splashes from 11-to-14 feet but most of his damage was done from short range, thanks to that strong iron and wedge play. Playing his 19th career event, this will be his first lead/co-lead after ANY round.

Grame McDowell coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the opening round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, staking out a spot one stroke off the early lead on Thursday with play still in progress.

The Northern Irishman steadied 10 (of 14) fairways en route to 11 greens in regulation. Three of his four birdies came from long distance, two on converted putts from the 17-to-21 foot range with the other coming on a hole out from 36'3" at the par-3 fourth hole. It wasn't all smooth sailing for the Ulsterman, though, as he needed to save par twice from outside nine feet to maintain the momentum. Opting to make his tournament debut here instead of traveling to take on a renovated Wentworth, McDowell looks to have made the right decision early on the in the week.
May 25 - 1:36 PM

Derek Fathauer breezed through Colonial Country Club on day one of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, styling a 5-under-par 31-34=65 to claim the early title of clubhouse leader.

Fathauer led off his day with a birdie bomb from 31'5" to really set the tone. He slowed his pace from there, but would still go on to knock in five more birdie putts ranging from 6'6" to 12'8" before his round was over. Driving accuracy wasn't on the menu today as he split just five (of 14) fairways but recovered nicely to land 15 greens, allowing his best weapon (putter) to go to work. Fathauer would walk off the course gaining 2.901 strokes putting. Slow starts have been an issue for Fathauer recently, as he's positioned himself outside the top 55 after R1 in each of his last nine starts. If he can maintain this lead by day's end it will be his fourth lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR with two of them resulting in top-5 finishes by week's end (2017 CIMB Classic, 2016 OHL Classic).
May 25 - 12:54 PM

Johan Carlsson carved a superb 6-under-par 30-36=66 to take the clubhouse lead midway through Thursday afternoon at the BMW PGA Championship over the West Course at Wentworth.

The big Swede is making his fourth appearance at the European Tour's headquarters without once suggesting that he had this round in him. He's finished T71-MC-T33 and never before broken 71. To better that by a full five strokes he started by obliterating the front nine, ticking three straight at 3, 4 and 5 before adding circles at 7 and 9. A bogey followed at the 10th but he atoned in style with back-to-back birdies at 11 and 12. There was a final par breaker at the 15th before he dropped a shot at the last, leaving him with a one shot advantage over a group of three at 5-under, Francesco Molinari, Scott Jamieson and Kiradech Aphibarnrat. "I putted really well," he said afterwards. "And on top of that you've got to hit a few good shots out there on this golf course, as well."
