PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 41 Wesley Bryan authored a 7-under-par 34-30=64 in the final round of the John Deere Classic to post 16-under 268, up 26 spots on the live leaderboard to T1, good for the 72-hole clubhouse lead and tying the low round of the day with previous clubhouse leader Steve Stricker and Morgan Hoffmann. UPDATE: With play completed, Bryan finished T3, two back of champion Bryson DeChambeau, who shot 65, and was No. 1 for the week with 27 birdies.

After kicking off in 66-71-67, the 27-year-old began T27 on 9-under, seven adrift of 54-hole leader Patrick Rodgers. He hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining just 0.053 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 3.357 approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 8.105. The South Carolina alum squared bogey-5s at Nos. 6 and 9, camouflaged by nine birdies at 5, 7, 8, 10 and five straight at 13-17, two from between 16 and 21 feet, adding an 18-footer for birdie-3 at 15 from just off the green. This was his second Deere (T8/2016) and if he goes on to win, would be his second of the season in 22 starts, joining his maiden title at the RBC Heritage eight starts ago.

World No. 218 Alex Cejka withdrew prior to the final round of The Honda Classic citing a thumb injury.

The 47-year-old was 5-over for his first three laps at PGA National (74-70-71) and didn't answer the bell for R4. He was scheduled out at 9:54 am ET, leaving Anirban Lahiri as a solo. This is Cejka's 22nd mid-tourney WD in 364 career TOUR events, second this season in nine starts (WM Phoenix Open).

Eddie Pepperell withstood a nervy finish to claim a maiden European Tour victory in the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC; his final round of 2-under-par 35-35=70 leaving him one shot clear of Oliver Fisher on 18-under 270.

The 27-year-old Englishman was solid on the final day, opening with eight straight pars from the get-go before ticking the par-5s ninth and tenth holes to open up a three-shot lead over the field. His playing partner Oliver Fisher had thrown up three bogeys on the front nine, but now burst into life, chasing Pepperell hard. A bogey by the eventual winner at 15 threatened his bid, but a pitch to 4'0" at the 16th gave him a birdie. Fisher got within one at 17, but Pepperell stood firm on 18. His drive was a little too safe, his lay up found rough, his pitch was strong and he two-putted for a par which Fisher couldn't better. He will remember the 12th hole. He chipped in for bogey in R3 and on Sunday his approach landed in trouble, but bounced out, allowing him to save par. "I felt good all day mentally," he said afterwards. "Oli made it difficult. I felt I would win out here, it's never come, but I did feel it could."

First-round co-leader and World No. 45 Webb Simpson painted a bogey-free 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of The Honda Classic to post 6-under 204, up one spot to T2, one short of 54-hole leader Luke List, and records just the second bogey-free round of the day.

The 32-year-old will be chasing a fifth TOUR title in 243 career starts, first since the 2014 Shriners, and will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4 with Tommy Fleetwood. He striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.503 strokes off-the-tee and 2.914 tee-to-green. The Wake Forest alum carded four birdies at Nos. 3, 8, 9 and 13, three from between 12 and 29 feet, posting 1.786 putts per GIR and 1.994 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 124 Luke List fired a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of The Honda Classic to reach 7-under 203, good for a one-shot lead over Justin Thomas and Webb Simpson.

This is the 33-year-old's second 54-hole lead/co-lead in 104 career starts. He was a 54-hole co-leader at the 2017 Sanderson Farms and shot 2-under 70 to finish a career-best T2. After kicking off in 71-66, the Vanderbilt alum co-led with playing competitor Jamie Lovemark and striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 17 (plugged lie in a greenside bunker), camouflaged by five circles at 3, 7, 9, 16 and 18, two from between 12 and 17 feet. The Seattle, Washington, native posted 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.848 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. He'll play out of the final twosome on Sunday with Thomas, who's the top-ranked player in the field at OWGR No. 4.

UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas is T2, one back of leader Luke List, who he'll be paired with in the final twosome on Sunday.

After kicking off in 67 and birdie-less 72, the 24-year-old began T7 on 1-under, two back of co-leaders Luke List and Jamie Lovemark. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 3.353 strokes approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 8.266. The Alabama product squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 6 (3-putt from 41'7"), smothered by six circles at 2, 3, 10, 14, 15 and 17, two from between 11 and 15 feet, adding a fringe-shot from 14'4" at 17. He recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.675 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. Thomas is chasing an eighth TOUR title in his 101st career start. Two of his seven wins to date are come from behind, most recent: 2017 PGA Championship; came from two back; 3-under 68; won by two.

The Jupiter, Florida, resident was bogey-free 2-under thru 14 holes, circling 3s at 8 and 13 (from 14'6"), before giving back two with bogey-4s at 15 and 17 (failed scrambles). He ended with an up-and-down birdie-4 at 18 to record his first round in the 60s since a R3 68 at the 2015 Wyndham, although that was just four official starts ago. The 79-time TOUR winner registered 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.960 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

First-round co-leader and World No. 16 Alex Noren twirled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 on Moving Day at The Honda Classic to post 4-under 206, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to solo 5th and good for the low round of the week thus far and the early 54-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Noren is solo 6th, three short of leader Luke List, and his 65 was tied by Justin Thomas.

After opening in 66-75, the Oklahoma State alum began T14 on 1-over, four short of 36-hole co-leaders Luke List and Jamie Lovemark.

The Jupiter, Florida, resident logs just the third blemish-free round of the week thus far. He opened with 75-70, one of 18 players to make the cut on the number, and is now bogey-free 5-under for his last 26 holes. Additionally, the 24-year-old was 7-over thru his first nine holes in Round 1, so it's been quite a turnaround. On Saturday, he landed seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.729 strokes off-the-tee and 0.885 around-the-green. The Alabama alum carded three birdie-3s at holes 6, 8 and 10, two from between 10 and 28 feet, posting 1.786 putts per GIR and 1.777 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Oliver Fisher thrashed a superb 7-under-par 33-32=65 to claim a share of the 54-hole lead alongside Eddie Pepperell on 16-under 200 in the third round of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC.

The 29-year-old Englishman scorched his way to the top of the leaderboard with a blistering finish that gives him a Sunday shot at a second European Tour title (his first was the 2011 Czech Masters). His front nine included three birdies at 3, 5 and 8. He added a fourth at 11 from 12’0" but bogey followed at the 12th. The best was yet to come as he closed with four par breakers in a row at 15, 16, 17 and 18. At the par-3 17th he converted from 10’0" before draining from twice that distance on the final green. Ranked 174th on the Race to Dubai he needed a good week to kickstart his season. Victory would revitalise his career. He and Pepperell lead by two from Sean Crocker who is himself two clear of five players on 14-under. "The most important thing for tomorrow is to go out and enjoy it," he said. "I'm good friends with Eddie so hopefully we'll have a bit of fun out there."

Defending champion and World No. 7 Rickie Fowler stumbled to a 6-over-par 36-40=76 in the second round of The Honda Classic and at 7-over 71-76=147, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 76 players from a field of 144 made the cut of 5-over 145, 18, T59 on the number. Fowler, a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright, misses his second cut of the season in five events, second in his last three starts (Farmers). After missing his first two cuts at the Honda in 2010 and 2011, he had cashed in six straight, and today's 76 matched his worst round at PGA National (2011/R1). The Jupiter, Florida, resident is in the published field at next week's WGC-Mexico. He totaled 16 (of 28) fairways and 21 greens in regulation, overshadowing four birdies with nine bogeys and a double, and ranked 125th in SG: Putting (-2.903). Other notable early exits include: 146- Patrick Reed; Tyrrell Hatton .. 147- Ryan Palmer; Graeme McDowell; Brandt Snedeker .. 148- Billy Horschel; Charles Howell III .. 149- Russell Knox; Kevin Kisner .. 152- Chesson Hadley; Patton Kizzire.

Jamie Lovemark soared up the leaderboard with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 during round two of The Honda Classic, joining Luke List with a share of the 36-hole lead on 3-under 137, his first career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR.

The Jupiter, Florida resident is one of the longest hitters on TOUR but he's taking the recommended route here at PGA National, opting for less-than-driver quite frequently. Today, he blasted just one drive over 285 yards. The lack of drivers has yielded more fairways, splitting 11 (of 14) today en route to 12 greens in regulation. That was good for +1.575 strokes approaching-the-green (+3.148 SG:APP in R1). Lovemark does not appear fazed by these difficult winds which is a good sign for the weekend as the forecast doesn't change much over the next two days. Joining Luke List as 36-hole co-leaders, this will be Lovemark's first career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR.
