Thorbjørn Olesen faces a different format on the European Tour this week when he pegs it up at the ISPS HANDA World Super 6 Perth in Australia but he'll expect to show up strongly having won at the course before.

Lake Karrinyup hosted four editions of the Perth International and the Dane won in 2014 to secure the second of his four European Tour titles. This week's format features three days of stroke play before a second cut is made and the top 24 battle it out under match play rules Sunday. Three years ago when he won Olesen was the leader after 54 holes so should be confident of making it through to the final day where each head-to-head match is played over just six holes. Olesen, who missed the cut at Lake Karrinyup when returning last year, won the Turkish Airlines Open in November and is 3-for-3 in 2017 after a run of 29-57-32 on the Desert Swing. He'll be a popular pick this week.

World No. 26 Kevin Kisner stalled out to an even-par 34-36=70 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to conclude on 10-under 68-68-64-70=270, down one spot to T3, two adrift of champion Xander Schauffele, but jumps six places to a career-best 12th in the FedExCup standings.

After a two-birdie one-bogey 34, the Georgia alum led Schauffele, one group ahead, by one, but came home in two-birdie three-bogey 36, which included a 19'7" bogey-save at the par-3 15th after watering his tee ball. Playing out of the final twosome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and conjured nine greens in regulation, losing 3.422 strokes approaching-the-green and 1.872 tee-to-green. He circled his four at holes 5, 6, 12 and 18, cancelling them with squares at 4, 10, 11 and 15. The South Carolinian posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.705 SG: Putting, taking 26 total putts. This was his first top-25 finish at East Lake in three tries and his first top 10 in the Playoffs in 13 events. Kisner finished the season with a career-best eight top 10s in 28 events, highlighted by his second TOUR title at the DDI 12 starts ago.

Second-round co-leader and World No. 4 Justin Thomas authored a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to post 11-under 269, up two spots to solo 2nd, one short of champion Xander Schauffele, who shot 68, but wins the FedExCup, nudging one place and eclipsing former FEC leader Jordan Spieth, who finished T7.

Making his 25th start of the season, Thomas and Spieth (23 starts) ended up deadlocked with a TOUR-leading 12 top 10s, but Thomas won five times with one runner-up versus three wins for Spieth and three runners-up. This was his second visit (T6/2016) and overall, his fifth top 10 in 11 Playoffs events, four in his last five. The 24-year-old wraps the postseason with three top 10s in the four events (T47, BMW), highlighted by his win at the Dell Tech. After kicking off in 67-66-70, he began T4, five back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey. Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, the Kentuckian hit seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.448 strokes tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 13, offset by five circles at 3 (from 15'8"), 6, 12, 16 and 17, just missing a closing birdie from 23'3". Thomas recorded 1.583 putts per GIR and 2.385 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. This is his first runner-up in 94 career events (90 pro).

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 66 Xander Schauffele hung up a 2-under-par 35-33=68 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to reach 12-under 268, good for a one-shot victory over FedExCup winner Justin Thomas and his second TOUR title in 30 career events, second this season in 28 starts, joining The Greenbrier Classic seven starts ago.

The Web.com Tour grad, a pre-tourney 90/1 outright, becomes the first rookie winner of the playoff finale, earns a three-year exemption on TOUR and vaults 23 places to 3rd in the FEC standings. It's his second come-from-behind triumph, erasing a three-shot deficit at The Old White TPC with 3-under 67 to win by one. After opening in 69-66-65, the 23-year-old began T2, two shy of 54-hole leader Paul Casey. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.857 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 0.762 off-the-tee and 1.029 around-the-green. The SDSU alum squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 4, outpaced by three circles at 6, 13 and 18, all from inside of six feet. He posted 1.833 putts per GIR and 0.899 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. Schauffele recorded T17 (The NT), T53 (Dell) and T20 (BMW), the latter getting him into East Lake, 32 to 26 in the FEC standings.

World No. 51 Russell Henley painted a day-low bogey-free 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the TOUR Championship to post 10-under 270, up six spots on the live leaderboard to solo 3rd, one back of 72-hole clubhouse leader Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With play completed, Henley finished T3, two shy of champion Xander Schauffele, and a career-best 13th in the FedExCup standings.

After kicking off in 67-71-67, the Georgia native began T9 on 5-under, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Paul Casey. Playing out of the fifth-to-last twosome, he landed 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.067 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.494 tee-to-green. The Georgia alum circled five, four in his first eight holes, at 1, 3, 4, 8 and 18, all five from between 10 and 25 feet. He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 4.369 SG: Putting, needing 28 total putts. This was Henley's second appearance (12th/2014) and will be his fifth top 10 of the season in 27 starts. He's projected to pop 15 places to a career-best 12th in the FedExCup standings. It's Henley's second top 10 in 16 overall Playoffs events, joining T2 at the 2014 Deutsche Bank.

Lucas Bjerregaard stormed to his first European Tour victory with a final lap of 6-under-par 32-33=65 at the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura to win the Portugal Masters by four shots on 20-under 264.

In some ways this success echoed that of last week's KLM Open champion Romain Wattel. Both are twentysomething Europeans who have threatened to win for a long time, but never got over the line; both have endured tough 2017 seasons; both, when the opportunity arose, grabbed it with two hands. Bjerregaard began the day with a one shot edge over playing partner George Coetzee and for most of Sunday they were conducting a head-to-head battle for the title, yet the Dane always held the advantage. He ticked 1, 4, 5 and 8 (from 30'0") to take a stranglehold, which a bogey at 9 briefly threatened to loosen only for a brace of birdies to be the perfect response at 10 and 11 (the latter from kick-in range). There was a second bogey at 14 but again he bounced back, with red numbers at 15 (a tap in) and 17 to seal the dominant win with Marc Warren taking second after a late Coetzee collapse. Bjerregaard's victory came in his 112th start on the main tour.

Overnight tri-leader and World No. 16 Paul Casey twirled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the third round of the TOUR Championship to reach the third-quarter pole on 12-under 198, good for a two-shot lead over Kevin Kisner and Xander Schauffele. UPDATE: This is Casey's third career 54-hole lead/co-lead, previously 1-for-2 converting (P1, 2009 SHO).

After opening in 66-67, the 40-year-old co-led with Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson. Playing out of the final twosome with Thomas (70), he landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 1.765 strokes around-the-green but gaining 2.482 approaching-the-green. The Englishman squared two bogeys at holes 8 and 9 (failed sand saves), camouflaged by eagle-3 at 6 from 10'8" and five birdies at 3, 5, 7, 11 and 17, three from between 12 and 41 feet, ending his scoring with a 40'7" bomb for birdie-3 at 17. He posted 1.571 putts per GIR and 3.269 SG: Putting with 26 total putts, No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 7.325. Casey is chasing his second TOUR title in 220 career events, joining a playoff win at the 2009 SHO (as 54-hole co-leader) 143 starts ago.
Sep 23 - 6:43 PM

PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 66 Xander Schauffele authored a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the TOUR Championship for a 54-hole tally of 10-under 200, up six places to T2 and matching the clubhouse lead of Kevin Kisner. UPDATE: With play completed, Schauffele is T2, two shy of 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

After opening in 69-66, the 23-year-old began T8 on 5-under, two shy of a trio of overnight co-leaders. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.740 strokes off-the-tee and 2.490 tee-to-green, currently No. 1 in both of those stats with cumulative totals of 3.898 and 7.588, respectfully. The SDSU alum squared two bogeys at holes 2 and 8 (failed sand saves), camouflaged by eagle-3 at 6 from 21'10" and five birdies at 3, 4, 12, 15 and 18, banging in a long of 24'8" at the par-3 15th. He recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.221 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. Schauffele is trying to become the first TOUR rookie to win the playoff finale.
Sep 23 - 6:05 PM

World No. 26 Kevin Kisner painted a 6-under-par 31-33=64 on Moving Day at the TOUR Championship to reach 10-under 200, up nine spots to solo 2nd, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead and tying the week's low round with first-round leader Kyle Stanley. UPDATE: With play completed, Kisner is T2, two back of 54-hole leader Paul Casey.

This is the Georgia alum's third straight appearance with a best of 26th last year, which also included his previous-best lap of 67/R1. He entered the week 18th in the FedExCup standings and began the Playoffs with three finishes outside the top 50, lowlighted by a T67 last week. After kicking off in twin 68s, the 33-year-old began T11 on 4-under, three back of a trio of overnight co-leaders. He landed seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.936 strokes approaching-the-green and 3.227 around-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 4.065. The South Carolinian squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 4 (3-putt from 44'5"), smothered by seven circles at 2, 3, 5, 6, 8, 13 and 14, five from inside of 10 feet, a long of 21 feet at 13, and a chip-in 3 at 14 from 38 yards away. He posted 1.615 putts per GIR and -0.262 SG: Putting, taking 25 total putts.

Lucas Bjerregaard holds a one-shot lead at the 54-hole stage of the Portugal Masters after a third round of 3-under-par 33-35=68 left him on 14-under 199 at the Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura.

The Dane is chasing his first individual win on the European Tour (he claimed the Golf6s alongside Thorbjorn Olesen in May) and takes a narrow advantage over George Coetzee into the final round, with three golfers a swing back on 12-under. He earned the chance to break his maiden status despite two back nine bogeys at 11 and 14. Before than he had ticked 3 and 5 on the front nine, then added another at ten. The dropped shots set him back before he edged ahead of the field with par breakers at 15 and 17. He has twice before shared a 54-hole ET lead - in the 2015 Hong Kong Open and 2016 China Open. Both times he finished top three. He has never been out alone with 18 holes to play. "It's been a rough year," he admitted, "so to be in contention again feels really good." There is every chance of a strong start to his lcosing lap: he is 12-under for the oening 12 holes this week.
Sep 23 - 3:31 PM

Webb Simpson soared the up the leaderboard early in round two of the TOUR Championship and then held on late to post a 3-under-par 31-36=67, good for a share of the 36-hole lead alongside Justin Thomas and Paul Casey, all entering the weekend on 7-under 133. UPDATE: This is Simpson's 10th 36-hole lead/co-lead, previously 1-for-9 converting (2014 Shriners).

Simpson was locked in from the start today, picking up four birdies in his first seven holes, including one at the difficult par-4 opening hole. We knew it was his day when an errant tee shot bounced off the top of an out-of-bounds fence and ricocheted back into prime position to attack the green. However, it all went downhill at the par-4 13th, as he blasted one into the trees off the tee and failed to get his (attempted) chip out back to the fairway. It resulted in a double bogey but also had lasting effects on his final five holes, missing the fairway on three of his final four drives. On the bright side, Simpson sits at first in the field this week in terms of strokes gained approaching-the-green. He will be happy to end today's round and hit the reset button before he readies for the weekend.
Sep 22 - 6:12 PM

World No. 16 Paul Casey fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 7-under 133, up one place to T1 and matching the 36-hole clubhouse lead of Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T1, tied with Thomas and Webb Simpson. This is his fifth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 220 career events, previously 1-for-4 converting.

The 40-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.143 strokes off-the-tee and 0.325 around-the-green, but gaining 0.752 approaching-the-green. He was bogey-free 4-under thru 11 holes, circling Nos. 3, 6, 7 and 10, before back-to-back bogey-5s at 12 and 13 (failed scrambles), completing his scoring with birdie-3 at 16. The Englishman's split included four from between seven and 11 feet, recording 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.580 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts. He's currently No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 4.041.
