Tiger Woods announced that he underwent successful back surgery and will rest before undergoing the rehab process.

Woods shared the news on Tigerwoods.com, saying "The surgery went well, and I'm optimistic this will relieve my back spasms and pain." He would later that add that typical patients return to full activity in about six months. Woods has proved to be anything but typical, though, when it comes to back pain. Optimistic gamers may want to tick off the Safeway Open or Hero World Challenge as potential return spots. Realistically, there is a good chance his return is much, much later than that.

World No. 432 Kevin Tway fashioned a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in the final round of the Valero Texas Open for a four-day tally of 9-under 279, up one spot into a two-way T3, and a career best in his 44th career start.

The 28-year-old posted rounds of 70-68-72-69 to finish three adrift of overnight leader and champion Kevin Chappell. Not only is the T3 a career best, it's his first top-25 finish, brushing aside a T26 at the 2014 Travelers. The Oklahoma State product was making his second visit to TPC San Antonio after a missed cut by five in 2014 (74-78). The podium comes in his 12th start of the season, supplanting a previous-best T32 in his last start at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open. After kicking off in 70-68-72, the Web.com Tour grad began in a 7-way logjam on 6-under (T4), two back of Chappell. He outpaced double bogey-6 at six and bogey-4 at 16 with six birdies on Nos. 1, 2, 4, 10, 15 and 17. Tway mustered eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.545 putts per GIR and 2.498 SG: Putting.

World No. 24 Brooks Koepka painted a week-tying-low 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the finale of the Valero Texas Open to reach 11-under 277, up 10 places to solo 2nd, one shy of overnight leader and champion Kevin Chappell, who shot 68 and birdied the 72nd hole to win.

Playing out of the fourth-to-last threesome, the 24-year-old put up a furious charge, his 65 being 8.158 strokes better than the field average. After opening in 68-74-70, he began T12 on 4-under, four back. The FSU product landed eight (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, the tourney leader in the latter at 75.00 percent (54/72). He also paced the field in SG: Tee-to-Green with a cumulative 13.482, 6.429 of that in R4. The Floridian sqaured a lone bogey-5 at nine (3-putt from 49'8"), camouflaged by eight birdies at Nos. 1, 2, 6-8, 11, 12 and 18, posting the clubhouse lead with a walk-off 4 from 3'1". His split featured five from greater than eight feet with a long of 39'1" at the par-4 seventh. This is Koepka's fourth runner-up in 74 career events, second this season in 11 starts (2nd, Shriners).

Overnight leader and World No. 41 Kevin Chappell hung up a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in today's final round of the Valero Texas Open to post 12-under 276, good for a 1-shot win over Brooks Koepka and his first PGA TOUR title in his 180th career start.

The 30-year-old's been runner-up six times, four times last year, including P2 at the season-ending TOUR Championship. He breaks through in his eighth visit to San Antonio, chasing T4 last year, with one of the aforementioned runner-ups coming here in 2011. The victory comes in Chappell's 13th start of the season and is a second top 10, arriving off T7 at the Masters two weeks ago. After kicking off in 69-68-71, he began one clear of Branden Grace and John Huh, who comprised the final threesome. The UCLA product striped 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.041 strokes approaching-the-green. He squared bogey-5s at five (3-putt from 25'7") and 15, camouflaged by six birdies at holes 2, 3, 7, 10, 14 and 18, all from inside of nine feet. The Californian came to the 18th needing birdie to win, and reached the par 5 in three, knocking home the winner from 8'2". This was his fourth career lead/co-lead after 54 holes and finally got over the finish line.

Bernd Wiesberger held firm on a difficult final day to claim victory in the 2017 Shenzhen International on the first extra hole after his final round 1-under-par 35-36=71 left him tied with Tommy Fleetwood at the top of the leaderboard on 16-under 272 at Genzon GC.

The Austrian entered the final round with a three-shot advantage, but spent the last lap treading water whilst everyone behind him charged for the line. None was more impressive than Fleetwood, whose 9-under 63 vaulted him from T15 to a clubhouse lead Wiesberger was struggling to match after two birdies and one bogey on the front nine, but par everywhere else. The par-5 17th seemed to offer him hope of getting one clear of Fleetwood, but he found water from the tee and had to scramble a fine par from 100 yards. He then nearly found water from the tee of the first play-off hole (18), but a superb approach from a sidehill lie to 8'0" was converted for the win. It is his fourth win on his 201st start on the European Tour.

A birdie-eagle finish lifted World No. 199 John Huh to a 1-under-par 37-34=71 in today's third round of the Valero Texas Open for a 54-hole tally of 7-under 209, up five places into a two-way T2, one adrift of leader Kevin Chappell.

After kicking off in 67-71, the 26-year-old began in a three-way T7 on 6-under, two shy of 36-hole co-leaders Bud Cauley and Tony Finau. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, he opened with eight pars and a bogey-5 at the ninth, missing a par-saver from 4'10". The Dallas resident squared the 11th (failed scramble), saved par from 9'11" at the 13th, before breaking the ice from 26 inches for birdie-4 at 14. He gave it right back at 15 (failed scramble) but with the shot of the day, holed out from a greenside bunker at the drivable par-4 17th for eagle. Huh, vying for his second TOUR title in 159 career starts, capped with birdie-4 at 18 from 6'0" to move into the final threesome on Sunday.

World No. 41 Kevin Chappell rallied for a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in the third round of the Valero Texas Open to reach the three-quarter mark on 8-under 208, good for the 54-hole lead by one over Branden Grace and John Huh.

The 30-year-old is chasing his first PGA TOUR title in his 180th career start. He's been a runner-up six times, four times last season, including a P2 at the TOUR Championship (as 54-hole co-leader). After opening in 69-68, the UCLA product began in a four-way T3 on 7-under, one back of 36-hole co-leaders Bud Cauley and Tony Finau. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he went out in 2-over, cancelling three birdies with three bogey-5s (failed scrambles) and a 1-putt double bogey-6 at six. The Californian came home in blemish-free 3-under, circling Nos. 14, 16 and 17. He mustered five (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, recording 0.262 SG: Tee-to-Green and 3.087 SG: Putting. Chappell dropped three of his birdies from between eight and 19 feet, and saved par from 10'1" at the 15th.

First-round leader and World No. 21 Branden Grace authored a 2-under-par 35-35=70 on Day 3 of the Valero Texas Open to post 7-under 209, up eight places to T2, one back of 54-hole leader Kevin Chappell.

The 28-year-old was the 18-hole leader (by one) with 66, slipping to T10 after an up-and-down 73. He began in a 7-way logjam on 5-under, three adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Bud Cauley and Tony Finau. The South African landed eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, recording 4.456 SG: Tee-to-Green, pacing the field in the latter with a cumulative 12.356. He outpaced bogey-5s at 6 and 15 (failed scrambles) with four birdies at 2, 7, 10 and 14, three from inside of five feet with a long of 13'4" at the par-3 seventh. The transplanted Floridian missed four birdie tries from inside of 15 feet, losing 0.105 strokes on-the-greens, and thru 54 holes is 73rd (of 76 players) in SG: Putting at -2.179.

In the first threesome off No. 1 tee, World No. 91 Ryan Palmer tossed up a 4-under-par 33-35=68 on Moving Day at the Valero Texas Open to post 6-under 210, up 33 places on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Palmer's 68 was the low round of the day and is in a 7-way T4, two back of 54-hole leader Kevin Chappell.

On a cool, blustery day at TPC San Antonio, the 40-year-old's 68 is currently 6.341 strokes better than the field average and that margin is likely to expand. This is his 15th VTO and owns three prior top 10s, including back-to-backs in the last two editions of T6/2015 and T4 last year (68-70-72-69). After opening in 74-68, the Texan began T36 on 2-under, six back of co-leaders Bud Cauley and Tony Finau. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.419 strokes tee-to-green. The Texas A&M alum squared a lone bogey-4 at 13, outpaced by five birdies at Nos. 5, 6 (from 56'1"), 8, 17 (15'5") and 18, walking off with a 9'6" birdie-4 for 1,667 putts per GIR and 3.003 SG: Putting. His season best and lone top 30 in eight events is T11 last week at the RBC Heritage.

Bernd Wiesberger wobbled early but recovered to shoot a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his third round at the Shenzhen International in China and will take a three-shot lead into Sunday's closer.

The Austrian sits at 15-under 201 after completing another strong lap of Genzon GC. That's three in front of South African Dylan Frittelli and four clear of David Lipsky, Dean Burmester, George Coetzee and Ross Fisher. Wiesberger had posted the 36-hole target of 12-under with a Friday 65 to lead by four overnight and the chasing pack, many who had to finish off their second rounds Saturday morning, couldn't close the gap. But Wiesberger stalled at the start of his third lap as five pars and a bogey in his first six holes allowed Frenchman Gregory Bourdy (who had a hole-in-one at No. 3) to surge past him. It didn't deter Wiesberger though and he circled birdies at 7 and 9 to get back in front and then built his lead again on the back nine. The 31-year-old went birdie-bogey-birdie from Nos. 13-15 and then drained a 12-footer at 17 for his 19th circle of the week. He's now in pole position to record a fourth European Tour win and first since the 2015 Open de France.

With the low 18 of the week, a third-round 8-under-par 33-31=64, course horse Alexander Levy set the clubhouse target of 10-under 206 at the weather-delayed Shenzhen International in China; that's currently good enough for T4 and represents a leap of 32 spots on the live leaderboard. UPDATE Levy ended the day in T7, five back from 54-hole leader Bernd Wiesberger.

The Frenchman has course form of 4-25-1 at Genzon GC but had left himself eight shots off the first-round lead following an opening 74. Despite a 68 on his second lap, he started his third round 10 behind halfway pacesetter Bernd Wiesberger. The Frenchman needed something special and got it in a round featuring seven birdies and an eagle. It was a relatively quiet start for Levy as he traded a birdie with a bogey over the first three holes but his round took off with back-to-back gains at 5 and 6. He connected three red numbers from Nos. 9-11, added another birdie at 13 and then, for his final trick, produced an eagle-3 at 17. Right now, he's three behind Wiesberger, who has eight holes still to finish. Unless the leader really kicks clear, it looks as if Levy has given himself a shot at it in Sunday's final round.
Apr 22 - 4:42 AM

First-round leader Bubba Watson had to settle for a 2-under-par 34-36=70 in his delayed second round at the Shenzhen International in China, his 36-hole total of 8-under 136 leaving him four behind halfway leader Bernd Wiesberger. UPDATE Bubba added a R3 70 in the afternoon and will start R4 five back from Wiesberger.

That’s okay and still good enough for T2 but the American would have wanted to make further inroads in to Wiesberger’s overnight lead. Watson resumed early Saturday at 7-under having managed to play just five holes of round two but could only advance his score by a single shot over the remaining 13. He made his first gain of the day with a birdie at 7 but gave it straight back with a bogey-4 at 8. He quickly shook that off with back-to-back red numbers at 9 and 10 and looked ready to make a big finish with two par 5s still to come. However, the left-hander would make bogey-6 at 13 and had to settle for par at the 526-yard 17th. With nothing but pars to add to that he ended the morning four behind Wiesberger before setting off on his third round.
