Defending champion Tyrrell Hatton thrashed a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 at Carnoustie in his second round at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in Scotland, moving into a one-shot clubhouse lead over Nicolas Colsaerts on 11-under 133. UPDATE: Hatton ended round two tied for the lead with fellow Englishman Tommy Fleetwood.

That's yet another exhibition of top-class links golf from the 2016 champion and it came on the hardest of the three courses used this week. After a 68 at St. Andrews yesterday, the Englishman took a little while to get into his stride in round two, opening with five straight pars. He broke the sequence with a birdie at 6 and followed it with two more at 7 and 8. Hatton picked up further shots at 13 and 15 before making a grandstand finish by chipping in for another circle at 16 and adding one more with a lengthy birdie putt at the last. His bid to become the first player to win this tournament back-to-back continues at Kingsbarns on Saturday.

Sung Kang heads home to Jeju Island, South Korea, for this week's inaugural CJ CUP at NINE BRIDGES.

Kang threw his name into the mix last week in Malaysia (CIMB Classic), finishing in a share of third place by week's end. It was the third podium finish of his PGA TOUR career, his second in the last seven months. The late-blooming 30-year-old is still searching for his first PGA TOUR victory. This week presents a good opportunity as Kang grew up on Jeju Island so he should be quite comfortable with the culture and climate of the area. Adding to his appeal, both of his career wins as a pro golfer have come in Korea. Gamers should certainly give a long look to Kang this week, in all formats.

Jon Rahm will return to Valderrama as one of the main stars of the Andalucia Valderrama Masters, just a few years after he walked the fairways in awe of his heroes.

Back when the European Tour season ended at Valderrama with the Volvo Masters it was often noted that the track had much in common with Wentworth. It was an observation based on players doing well at both. But this week there is another possibility. English golfers who attended Wentworth as kids seem to be inspired playing there in May; might the same be true for Rahm, whose family always flew down here for him to watch the stars, this October? He's played course in amateur events and as prep this summer (in July). It's tightness might be a problem, but then again he played Colonial very well this year and has topped the Greens in Regulation stats in two of his last three starts. The dream scenario is a Rahm-Garcia Sunday shootout and it's not fanciful.

Patrick Cantlay was one of five early-week withdraws from this week's CJ CUP at Nine Bridges field, delaying the start of his sophomore campaign for at least one more week.

In limited starts, Cantlay cruised to a 13-for-13 record in his rookie season, making it all the way to East Lake in the process. It was a long time coming after missing more than two years worth of action due to injuries and tragedy. There was no reason given for this pre-tournament WD, but a long flight wrecking havoc on the back can't be ruled out. For the time being, Cantlay is still listed on the WGC-HSBC Champions player profile page, suggesting he could still make his season debut next week in China. Joining Cantlay as early-week WDs in Korea are Jason Dufner, Russell Knox, Mackenzie Hughes, and Ernie Els. Gamers should remove them all from their weekly lineups.

A final round bogey-free 8-under-par 31-32=63 was not quite enough to see Ross Fisher end his victory drought, as he settled for T2 at 20-under 264 in the Italian Open.

Fisher and playing partner Marcus Fraser lit up Golf Club Milano Sunday, the Englishman carding six birdies in the opening 10 holes to climb a jam-packed leaderboard. He made his second two of the round at the par-three 12th hole to move to 19-under before a sand-save birdie at the par-five 14th but then missed four birdie putts coming home. It still looked as though the former Ryder Cup player would earn a playoff but his total was ultimately one shy of Tyrrell Hatton, who Fisher had finished runner-up to one week earlier in Scotland. It’s now three and a half years since the last of five European Tour wins for Fisher, who would’ve looked to improve on an 0-5 playoff record had Hatton not finished off in style to beat him once again. Still, Fisher is now fourth in the Race To Dubai heading towards the end of the season.

Tyrrell Hatton became the first player to win successive European Tour events this season as he shot a 6-under-par 35-30=65 to win the Italian Open by a single shot at 21-under 263.

For the second Sunday running, Ross Fisher made the big move to post 20-under, a total matched by Kiradech Aphibarnrat, but Hatton’s closing birdie to cap a sensational back nine saw him edge both players by a stroke. It had looked set to be a frustrating final round for the Englishman as he lost ground with a 1-under front-nine, but he caught fire with an approach to six feet at 12 which prompted a run of four birdies on the spin. After a narrow miss at 16 and a good two-putt at the penultimate hole, Hatton found the heart of the 18th green to leave a 20-foot birdie putt which he converted for a dramatic conclusion to the Rolex Series event. Victory puts him in a strong position to make his Ryder Cup debut next year and from 33rd place in the Race To Dubai two weeks ago, he’s now inside the top five.

World No. 98 Keegan Bradley styled a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the final round of the CIMB Classic to reach 20-under 268, up two places to solo 2nd, four short of overnight leader and champion Pat Perez.

This was the 31-year-old's fourth CIMB, third top 10 and second straight after solo 6th last year (as 18-hole co-leader). It's his fifth runner-up finish in 185 career events and his best result on TOUR since runner-up at the 2014 Arnold Palmer Invitational 97 starts ago. After opening in 65-71-65, the St. Johns alum began T4 on 15-under, six shy of Perez. Playing out of the penultimate threesome, he piped all 14 fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation, circling three birdies at Nos. 3, 10 and 12, adding eagle-3 at 5. The Vermont native, who opened the season with a missed cut at the Safeway, rebounded from a back-nine 1-over 37 in R2 (two birdies, three bogeys) to play his final 36 holes blemish-free.

Second- and third-round leader and World No. 31 Pat Perez authored a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the CIMB Classic to post 24-under 264, good for a four-shot victory over runner-up Keegan Bradley, who shot 67 out of the penultimate threesome. UPDATE: Perez jumps 11 places to a career-high 20th in OWGR.

The 41-year-old, a pre-tourney 50/1 outright, bags his third PGA TOUR title in 403 career events. This was the eighth CIMB and Perez' fifth visit, fourth as an official TOUR event, with a previous-best 9th in 2012 (unofficial). After kicking off in 66-65, the Arizonian led by one, extending to a four-shot lead after a R3 64. Playing out of the final threesome, he hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, camouflaging a lone bogey-5 at six with four circles at holes 2-4 and 8, the latter would complete his scoring. Perez went 182 starts between wins No. 1 and 2 (2017, OHL Classic), and took just 24 more to add a third. Playing competitors Xander Schauffele (72) and Sung Kang (71) finished T3, seven in arrears.

Tommy Fleetwood made a big Race To Dubai move with an 8-under-par round of 31-32=63, the low round of the day, to climb to T6 on 13-under 200 after three rounds of the Italian Open, entering the finale just four off the pace.

Fleetwood put exclamation points on both loops, making eagle at the par-5 ninth and birdies at holes 15, 16 and 17 before a par at the last saw him edge playing partner Matthew Fitzpatrick (32+32=64) by one, powering into contention. It was a potentially key round in the season-long points race for leader Fleetwood, with nearest rivals Jon Rahm (37+32=69) and Sergio Garcia (37+33=70) both left behind by the Englishman. Fleetwood heads into Sunday seeking his third win of a breakout 2017 and second Rolex Series title, having secured the French Open back in mid-summer at next year’s Ryder Cup venue. He will begin the final round just four back.

An incredible closing par saw Matt Wallace salvage a 4-under-par 34-33=67 to reach 17-under 196 on the week, good for a two-shot lead with one round to play at the Italian Open.

The rookie played beautifully for much of the third round, taking care of three short par 5s and making just his second bogey of the tournament at the par-3 seventh, but looked certain to lose at least some of his lead when driving to the base of a tree at the final hole. However, the Open de Portugal champion punched out sideways before firing his third shot to six feet, converting the par putt to stay two clear of Tyrrell Hatton and Francesco Molinari. It will be his second 54-hole lead on the European Tour, the first coming in Portugal where he carded 69 to maintain what was a three-shot gap against lesser opposition than he’ll face Sunday.

World No. 3 Hideki Matsuyama torched TPC Kuala Lumpur for a bogey-free 9-under-par 31-32=63 in round three of the CIMB Classic in Malaysia but only managed to pull a single shot back on leader Pat Perez and, at 15-under 201, will start the final day six off the pace.

The Japanese star needed to go low today and did so with a burst of five straight birdies on his front nine from Nos. 4-8, another at 10 and three to close with at 16, 17 and 18. That moved him four spots up the leaderboard to T4 but still with something of a mountain to climb after Perez answered with a 64. Matsuyama's 63 was one lower than the second-round 64 which helped him finish runner-up in this tournament last year. He said later: "There were a couple of shorter putts that I wasn't able to convert, but all in all, I'm very happy with the round I played today. I'll just go home, get some rest and tee it up tomorrow and do my very best. You know, with the way Pat is playing, I don't know if he can be caught or not."

Pat Perez continued his birdie blitz at TPC Kuala Lumpur on Saturday, thrashing an 8-under-par 33-31=64 in round three of the CIMB Classic to set the 54-hole scoring record of 21-under 195 and extend his lead to four shots with 18 to play.

In sweltering heat, the American littered his scorecard with nine birdies, six on his back nine and four in the final five holes as he put daylight between himself and the chasing pack having started day three just one in front. Xander Schauffele remains his nearest challenger but is now four shots adrift while it's five back to Sung Kang in solo third. Hideki Matsuyama and Keegan Bradley share fifth spot, six shots in arrears of Perez. The key for the 41-year-old this week has been his putter. "I didn't really hit it that great," said Perez, "but I putted good again. You know, I'm just kind of getting the most out of my game right now. It's the same greens (Paspalum) I won on in Mexico (2016 OHL Classic at Mayakoba), so I really can see the line and I can see the ball in the wind here. It's helped me." Five out of seven players who have led or co-led after the third round of the CIMB Classic have gone on to win the event.
