PGA TOUR rookie Tyler Duncan dished out a 7-under-par 34-31=65 during round one of the Safeway Open, grabbing an early share of the lead with defending champion Brendan Steele.

The Web.com Tour graduate went 13-for-20 on the Web.com Tour last year, finding eight top 25s along the way. He is just 0-for-1 on the PGA TOUR but showed no sign of nerves today. Duncan gained 3.379 strokes approaching-the-green today. A large chunk of that came at the par-4 10th where he holed out for eagle from 119 yards. Given his lack of experience on the big stage, this round will set personal best in many regards. To give a sense of his play style, Duncan ranked 1st in driving accuracy on the Web.com Tour last year.

Making his tournament debut and with preferred lies in effect, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 358 Tom Lovelady enjoyed a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship to post 18-under 198, up five spots on the round and good for a share of the 54-hole lead with three others, including Troy Merritt, who he'll be paired with in the penultimate twosome in Round 4.

This is the Alabama alum's first lead/co-lead after any round in his 25th event and is eyeing his first TOUR title. His career best (and lone top 10) is T5 at the opposite-field Corales 12 starts ago. The 24-year-old, who celebrates his birthday in two days (July 23rd), hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.869 strokes around and 2.916 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 9 (tee ball in the water), camouflaged by six birdies, including four straight at 14-17, adding eagle-3 at 6 from 13'7". Lovelady recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and 1.180 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

With preferred lies in effect, World No. 704 Hunter Mahan smoothed a season-low, bogey-free, 8-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship for a 54-hole total of 18-under 198, up six places on the round and good for a share of the lead with three others, including Robert Streb, who he'll be paired with in the final twosome in Round 4.

The 36-year-old is chasing his seventh TOUR title in 396 events, first since the 2014 Barclays where he came from behind. This is just his second career 54-hole lead/co-lead, joining the 2011 TOUR Championship where he finished P2 after a 1-over 71. Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, the Oklahoma State product striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit all 18 greens in regulation, gaining 2.184 strokes approaching and 4.404 tee-to-green. He circled eight birdies, including a birdie-birdie finish, recording 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.692 SG: Putting with 30 total putts. This is Mahan's first time in the top 10 thru 54 holes since the 2014-15 Frys.com Open.

With preferred lies in effect, first- and second-round leader and World No. 327 Troy Merritt bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship, dipping into a four-way tie for the lead on 18-under 198.

After opening with 62-67, the Boise State product led by two over two players. Playing out of the final threesome, he landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 1.862 approaching and 3.232 tee-to-green. The 32-year-old carded five birdies, including four birdie-4s, taking some luster off with two bogeys at holes 3 and 11 (3-putt from 31'8"). He posted 1.800 putts per GIR and -3.136 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. This is the Iowa native's third 54-hole lead/co-lead in 178 events, previously 1-for-2 converting. He won the 2015 Quicken Loans by three as a 54-hole co-leader, closing with 4-under 67 to win his first (and lone) TOUR title.

Making his tournament debut and with preferred lies in effect, World No. 262 Robert Streb painted a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship for a 54-hole tally of 18-under 198, up 10 places on the round, matching the low lap in R3 with two others, and a share of the lead with three others, including Hunter Mahan, who he'll be paired with in the final twosome in Round 4.

This is the Kansas State alum's first 54-hole lead/co-lead in 159 events. He's chasing his second TOUR title to augment his win at the 2015 McGladrey Classic, where he came from five back and won a 3-man playoff. The 31-year-old ties his career low shot three other times, most recently at the 2016 PGA Championship/R2. After kicking off with 67-68, he landed nine (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, gaining 2.300 strokes on approach. The Oklahoma native carded nine birdies, four from between 10 and 19 feet, registering 1.471 putts per GIR and 3.313 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

With preferred lies in effect, World No. 445 Blayne Barber twirled a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship to post 17-under 199, up 18 places to T1, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead with Sam Ryder and matching the low round of the day thus far, also with Ryder. UPDATE: With R3 completed, Barber is T5, one short of four co-leaders.

This was the 28-year-old's 295th career lap and ties a career low shot in R1 of the 2017 RSM. After eating a double bogey-6 in R1, he's now played his last 42 holes in blemish-free 18-under and is eyeing his first TOUR title in 101 events. The Auburn alum's career best is P2 at the above-mentioned RSM and if this co-lead holds up, it'll be his first at any point after Rounds 1 thru 3. On 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, he gained 3.824 strokes approaching and 5.225 tee-to-green. The Florida native carded nine birdies, three of those 2-putt varieties, and the rest from inside of 14 feet. He posted 1.600 putts per GIR and 0.834 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Making his tournament debut and with preferred lies in effect, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 202 Sam Ryder hung up a bogey-free, 9-under-par 30-33=63 in the third round of the Barbasol Championship to reach 17-under 199, up 18 spots on the live leaderboard to T1, good for the 54-hole clubhouse lead with Blayne Barber and matching the low round of the day thus far, also with Barber. UPDATE: With R3 completed, Ryder is T5, one back of a 4-ball of 54-hole leaders.

This was the Stetson alum's 69th career lap and a new career low, eclipsing 64 in the final round of the Travelers four starts ago. If the co-lead holds up, it'll be his first lead/co-lead after any round in his 24th career event. The Floridian, who arrived off a career-best T2 at last week's John Deere, opened with twin 68s and hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, gaining 3.181 approaching and 4.615 tee-to-green. He circled nine birdies, three of those 2-putt varieties, and connected on three from between 10 and 17 feet. The 28-year-old, who's 10 days younger than Barber, recorded 1.647 putts per GIR and 1.490 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Kisner maintained a share of the lead with a bogey-free, 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the third round of The 147th Open, joining co-leaders Jordan Spieth and Xander Schauffele on 9-under 204.

Kisner continued to add to his recipe of success here at Carnoustie. Taking advantage of the long holes, he added two more par-5 birdies today to reach 6-under on the week (4 birdies and an eagle in 6 par 5s played). Kisner has landed just 61.1 percent of greens this week but leads the field in the number of total scrambles (17-of-21). You would like to see a bit better ball-striking from a contender but it's hard to argue with that level of short-game success. This will go in the books as his fifth career 54-hole lead or co-lead on the PGA TOUR. He's finished runner-up in two of those, won one (2015-16 RSM Classic), and finished T7 in the other (2017 PGA Championship). That remains as his lone top 10 in a major championship but he has a great chance to improve on that tomorrow evening.

Xander Schauffele steadied a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during round three of The 147th Open, climbing to 9-under 204 to join Jordan Spieth in the clubhouse as the current co-leaders.

Schauffele went birdie-free in R1 on his outward nine. He circled two birdies there during his second round and today he picked up three birdies to erase a bogey at the par-4 second hole. The four-hole closing stretch is where the field is really struggling at Carnoustie but Schauffele is 2-under-par on the week when it comes to playing holes 15 thru 18 (3 birdies, 1 bogey). That included a walk-off birdie from just off the back of the green at the par-4 18th today. This will be his first career 54-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR as he entered his 2017 Greenbrier win in a share of third and was T2 thru 54 holes when winning the 2017 TOUR Championship. The San Diego State product entered with three top 20s in four major championship starts, continuing to establish his reputation as a big-game hunter.

Defending champion Jordan Spieth started hot and kicked again on the back nine to complete a superb bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65 and jump into top spot in round three of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie on 9-under 204.

Spieth's week got off to a modest beginning when he handed in a 1-over 72 but he's played the middle two rounds in 10-under after following up Friday's 67 with today's 65, a score he shot in round three last year when winning at Royal Birkdale. Saturday's round got off to a dramatic start when the American drove the first green and holed from 10ft for eagle. He added another birdie at 4 but had to wait a while before his next. It came at 11 (the third straight day he's birdied it) before he ticked 14 and 16 to put himself in great position for a successful defense. Right now, he's T1 with compatriots Xander Schuaffele and Kevin Kisner, who are still to complete. Spieth came to Carnoustie with some ugly putting stats hanging over him but he's T4 in Putts Per Round so far this week, taking 29 today. His long game is in good shape too after pelting 15 greens in regulation on day three.
Jul 21 - 1:59 PM

Francesco Molinari twirled a 6-under-par bogey-free 33-32=65 in round three of the 147th Open Championship, posting the new clubhouse lead of 6-under 207 and rising 24 spots up the live leaderboard to T5.

Right now, that's two back from final two-ball Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson, who have 10 holes still to complete. This is vindication for #TeamCurrentForm so far as Molinari came to Carnoustie as one of the hottest players in the game following a pair of wins (BMW PGA Championship and Quicken Loans National) and two second places from his last six starts. That's not to say his Open record is poor as he's made five of his last six cuts and has a T9 at Muirfield in 2013 and two other top 15s. He made his move today with three birdies on each nine (1, 6, 7, 10, 14 and 16), his final red number after holing a slow uphill putt from off the green. Traditionally his weakness, the flatstick has been a key weapon for the Italian so far and he ranks fifth in the live Putting Average stats with exactly 27. A runner-up at last summer's PGA Championship, he'll be chasing a first major victory in tomorrow's closer and those recent wins will definitely give him added belief.

Tiger Woods thrilled the Carnoustie galleries on Moving Day by piecing together a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in round three of the 147th Open Championship, good enough for the new clubhouse lead of 5-under 208 and T5 on the live board after a rise of 24 spots.

This felt great to watch. At one point on Saturday afternoon after making birdie at 14, Woods went 6-under for the day and topped the leaderboard, sparking a flood of screen grabs. It felt like 2006 all over again, the last time he won an Open. He'd reached there after plotting his way around the par 71 and picking off birdies at 4, 6, 9, 10, 11 and the back nine's only par 5. He did drop a shot at 16 for the second day running and looked as if he could leak a little more oil at the last but Woods wedged it up and down from 100 yards to save par. Now he'll have to wait and see how far back he'll be by day's close. Right now, he's two behind leaders Xander Schauffele and Kevin Kisner. Woods had great control today, hitting 80% of the fairways, 14 greens in regulation and taking 29 putts.
