Nicolas Colsaerts recovered from an early error to cruise Kingsbarns in 5-under-par 34-33=67 and end round one of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in a tie for top spot with Paul Dunne.

The Belgian made a double bogey-7 at the par-5 third hole, the sort of early score which plunges a dagger into the heart of touring professionals on a Thursday morning, but his response was magnificent. Immediately he ticked three holes in a row (4, 5 and 6) to be swiftly back under par for the week and he didn't stop there. A birdie-2 at the eighth allowed him to turn in 2-under and then he added more red at 12, 17 and 18 to join Dunne on 5-under in the clubhouse. They lead by a shot from five players, including defending champion Tyrrell Hatton. Colsaerts will play the Old Course, St. Andrews on Friday before the toughest test of all, Carnoustie, on Saturday. His past record in the event reads 3-for-6 with one top 30, when T9 in 2011.

Playing out of the third-to-last twosome, second-round leader and World No. 28 Brian Harman pieced together a 2-under-par 36-32=68 in the final round of the Travelers Championship for a four-day total of 13-under 267, down three places to T6, four in arrears of fellow Georgia Bulldog and champion Bubba Watson, and dropping to 0-for-4 when leading/co-leading after 36 holes.

This was the 31-year-old's eighth Travelers, third top 25 and second top 10, joining a solo 3rd in 2015 as 54-hole leader. He improves to 16-for-18 on the season with 11 top 25s and eight top 10s, tying Dustin Johnson (idle) for the season lead. After opening in 64-66-69, the 31-year-old began T3, five back of leader Paul Casey. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.326 strokes on approach. Harman was 1-over thru 13 holes, outpacing birdie-3 at 10 (from 16'11") with bogeys at 5 and 12, but circled 14, 15 and 18 coming in, the latter from 12'0". He posted 1.769 putts per GIR and 1.011 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. For the week, Harman totaled one eagle and 20 birdies against nine bogeys.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, World No. 93 J.B. Holmes pieced together a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship for a 72-hole total of 14-under 266, up one spot into a season-best T2, three back of champion Bubba Watson, who shot 63, and records his first top 30 at TPC River Highlands in six visits (T37/2012).

Needing a hole-out eagle-2 at 18 to tie Watson, the 36-year-old missed the green from 91 yards out (in the fairway), and missed a par-saver from 5'6", giving up a would-be solo 2nd. After opening with 66-68-65, he began T3, five back of leader Paul Casey. The Kentucky product found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.912 tee-to-green. He carded five birdies at holes 1 (from 24'6"), 6, 11, 12 and 15, squaring bogey-5s at 14 and 18. Holmes posted 1.643 putts per GIR and -0.047 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. For the week, he totaled one eagle and 19 birdies against seven bogeys. He was chasing a fifth TOUR title in 287 events, first since the 2015 Houston Open, but settles for a fifth runner-up, first since the 2015 WGC-Cadillac. Holmes improves to 12-for-18 on the season with four top 25s and three top 10s, second straight after solo 3rd at the St. Jude. It's his first time posting consecutive top 3s since 2010.

Playing out of the fourth-to-last twosome, World No. 88 Beau Hossler birdied four of his final six holes en route to a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to wrap up his second appearance (T53/2017) on 14-under-266, up four spots into a season- and career-tying-best T2, three adrift of champion Bubba Watson, who shot 63.

Making his 34th career start (30th pro), the 23-year-old records his second runner-up, joining a P2 at the 2018 Houston Open as 54-hole co-leader. He improves to 19-for-22 on the season with seven top 25s and four top 10s, first since the playoff loss. After opening with 65-67-68, the first-time member though not a rookie began T5, six back of leader Paul Casey. He landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.139 strokes approaching and 1.104 around-the-green. The California native squared two bogey-5s at holes 7 and 12, outpaced by five conventional birdies, all from inside of nine feet, adding a 13-footer from the fringe at 17. He registered 1.583 putts per GIR and -0.030 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. For the week, the Texas resident totaled one eagle and 19 birdies versus five bogeys and one double.

Overnight leader and World No. 13 Paul Casey stumbled to a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the final round of the Travelers Championship, dipping one spot into a four-way T2 on 14-under 266, three in arrears of champion Bubba Watson, who shot 63 out of the fifth-to-last twosome, and drops to 1-for-4 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

After opening in 65-67-62, the 40-year-old began with a four-shot lead over playing competitor Russell Henley, six clear of Watson. He conjured nine (of 14) fairways and 10 greens in regulation, losing 3.009 strokes off-the-tee. The Englishman opened with a 22'12" birdie at No. 1 (from off the green with the flat stick), but then played his final 17 in birdie-less 3-over, squaring 5, 16 and 17 (tee ball in the water). He recorded a dismal 2.000 putts per GIR and -1.419 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. Casey saved par from 28'2" at 10 and from 10'1" at 13 (watered tee ball), but never had a birdie look from inside of 14 feet. He was chasing his third TOUR title in 233 events, second this season in 13 starts, but settles for an eighth runner-up. It's his fourth top 25 in four visits, third top 5, and second runner-up, also to Watson in his 2015 debut (playoff). For the week, Casey totaled one eagle and 19 birdies versus seven bogeys.

Beginning the day six shots back, two-time past champ and World No. 20 Bubba Watson, a pre-tourney 28/1 outright, twirled a season-tying-low, 7-under-par 33-30=63 in the final round of the Travelers Championship for a 72-hole tally of 17-under 263, good for a three-shot win over four players and his 12th PGA TOUR title in 288 events, seventh in come-from-behind fashion.

The 2010 and 2015 winner, both in playoffs, was already the all-time leader in earnings at the Travelers and adds his third win in 12 tries, all coming from behind. He's the season-leader now with three wins in 15 starts and records his first three-win season since joining the TOUR in 2006. After kicking off in 70-63-67, the 39-year-old began in a five-way T6 and found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 4.214 strokes tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 8, outflanked by eight birdies at 5, 6, 9, 10, 12, 13, 15 and 18, highlighted by a hole-out 3 at 10 from 49'1" away and a walk-off 3 from 30 inches. The Floridian posted 1.462 putts per GIR and 1.635 SG: Putting with 24 total putts. For the week, he tallied one eagle and 22 birdies against seven bogeys. The Georgia alum improves to 13-for-15 on the season with five top 25s, all doubling as top 10s, and four top 5s.

World No. 7 Rory McIlroy, a pre-tourney 12/1 co-fave outright, crafted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude his second appearance (T17/2017) on 11-under 269, up four places to T11 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, McIlroy finished T12, six back of champion Bubba Watson.

After opening in 64-69-69, the 29-year-old began T15 on 8-under, two shy of the overnight top 10. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.597 strokes off-the-tee, and 14.273 tee-to-green, currently No. 1 in both of the latter stats with a cumulative 7.039 and 14.273, respectively. The Ulsterman squared two bogey-5s at holes 1 and 12 (3-putt from 73'8"), outpaced by five circles at 3, 6, 7, 15 and 17, all from inside of nine feet. He posted 1.692 putts per GIR and -2.231 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. For the week, McIlroy totaled one eagle and 16 birdies versus seven bogeys, and was 74th (last) in SG: Putting -5.492. He improves to 8-for-12 on the season with six top 25s and possibly a fourth top 10.

Open-qualifier and World No. 1675 Chase Seiffert fired a career-low, 6-under-par 30-34=64 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to finish up on 12-under 268, up 16 places to T6 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Seiffert finished a career-best T9.

This was the 26-year-old's fifth career TOUR start, first this season. His previous-best finish was T43 as an OQer here last year, T4 thru 36 holes, and his previous-best round was 65 at the 2017 RSM, also as an OQer. After opening with 66-71-67, the FSU alum began T22 on 6-under, four short of the overnight top 10. He landed 11 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 3.326 strokes around-the-green and 5.393 tee-to-green. The non-member squared a lone bogey-5 at 17, outpaced by five birdies and a hole-out eagle-3 at 6 from 48'6" away, also holing out for birdie-2 at 5 from 59'2" away. He posted 1.583 putts per GIR and -0.405 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. If he stays in the top 10, he'll gain an exemption into A Military Tribute at the Greenbrier in two weeks.

Making his first appearance since a missed cut in 2015, two-time past champ and World No. 149 Stewart Cink hung up an 8-under-par 29-33=62 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to post 14-under 266, up 20 spots on the live leaderboard to solo 2nd, tying the low round of the week and good for the early 72-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, Cink finished in a four-way T2, three short of champion Bubba Watson, who shot 63. It's his 11th career runner-up in 559 events, first since the 2008 PODS (now Valspar) Championship.

This matches the 45-year-old's career low in 1901 rounds, also shooting 62 in R1 of the 2017 RSM, also an 8-under version (Seaside Course). He checked in off a T4 two weeks ago in Memphis, his first top 10 in 25 starts. The last time the Georgia Tech alum posted consecutive top 5s on TOUR was in 2008. After opening with trip-68s, he began T22, 10 back of leader Paul Casey. The 1997 and 2008 champ hit 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.490 strokes around and 4.218 tee-to-green. He squared two bogey-4s at 11 and 16, smothered by a career-best 10 birdies, including a pair of hat-tricks at 1-3, and 5-7. Cink's split featured three from between 10 and 38 feet, a 33-footer from the fringe at 10, and a hole-out 2 at 5 from 63 feet away. He posted 1.385 putts per GIR and 2.668 SG: Putting with 22 total putts.

World No. 4 Brooks Koepka styled a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the final round of the Travelers Championship to conclude on 9-under 271 (68-69-69-65), up 21 places to T17 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Koepka finished T19, eight back of champion Bubba Watson.

Koepka honored his commitment to play the Travelers after winning back-to-back U.S. Opens. He birdied four of his first five holes in R1 before stalling out with four bogeys over his final six, stating later, "I'm excited to take a nap." The 3-time PGA TOUR winner did pass on the Wednesday pro-am to try and rest up, but still was "mentally exhausted". He finished up with a seven-birdie, two-bogey effort to possibly nab a top 25, which would be his fifth of the season in just nine events, and second in three tries at TPC River Highlands, joining a T9 on last visit in 2016. For the week, the 28-year-old recorded 23 birdies, currently No. 1 in that stat, against 14 bogeys.

With the lowest score of his European Tour career, a bogey-free 11-under-par 32-29=61, Thorbjorn Olesen catapulted himself 40 spots up the leaderboard to finish tied second at the BMW International Open on 9-under 279, just a shot back from winner Matt Wallace.

What a way to finish! The Dane started the day way off the pace after a disappointing Saturday 77 but went 16 shots lower today. He went to the turn in 32 after eagle-3 at No. 3 along with birdies at 2 and 9 and then sprinkled red at 10, 11, 13, 15, 16, 17 and 18 to set a testing clubhouse target which only Wallace could beat. The 61 also broke the Gut Larchenholf course record (62 nine times) and was the lowest score to par of 2018. "I was just trying today to go out there and build on my game, see if I could shoot a low score and get ready for next week. Obviously as the round progressed I kept on thinking birdies and trying to make the round better. Finishing with four birdies was pretty nice," said the 28-year-old.

A prolific winner on the minor Alps Tour, Matt Wallace is repeating the pattern on the European Tour after claiming his third victory in just 39 starts at this level and second of the season by shooting a closing bogey-free 7-under-par 34-31=65 to register a one-shot win at the BMW International Open in Germany with 10-under 278.

Wallace's superb final lap nudged him in front of Thorbjorn Olesen, local hero Martin Kaymer and Mikko Korhonen. World No. 91 Wallace was two back at start of play but had to respond to a brilliant 61 by Denmark's Olesen which set the clubhouse target of 9-under. Wallace moved up to 5-under early with birdies at 1 and 3 but left himself an uphill task after staying there with six pars. But needing to come home in 31 to edge ahead of Olesen, Wallace was up to the task and splashed red at 10, 11, 13, 15 and 16 (12 feet) to hit the winning mark of 10-under. This 'W' comes just seven starts on from his victory in the Indian Open and moves him to 11th on the Race to Dubai. The 28-year-old was making his course and tournament debut and finished the week 1st for GIR.
