Making his tournament and professional debut, sponsor invite and World No. 1940 John Oda steadied a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in Sunday's third round of the OHL Classic at Mayakoba to reach 11-under 202, up one place to T3, four back of 54-hole leader Patton Kizzire.

The Honolulu native was one of 13 who didn't hit a shot in Saturday's weather-delayed third round. After opening 68-65, he began T4 on 9-under, one back of a trio of 36-hole leaders, including Kizzire. With preferred lies in effect, the UNLV product landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulaton, camouflaging a lone bogey-5 at 14 with three circles at 11, 13 and 17. He posted 1.867 putts per GIR with 31 total putts. There is no re-pairing taking place between Rounds 3 and 4, so Oda will play out of the penultimate threesome for a second straight round.

Lucas Herbert torched Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura with a third round 7-under-par 30-34=64 to total 19-under 194 after 54 holes of the Portugal Masters, good for a two shot advantage heading into the final day.

The Aussie 23-year-old leads Englishman Tom Lewis, who smashed a superb 61 on Saturday, with Marcus Kinhult and Eddie Pepperell, who share third, another two swings back on 15-under. It grants Herbert a superb opportunity to claim his first win at professional level, but he has already rubber stamped his reputation as one to watch for the future. In fact his only error on Moving Day was also his only error of the week: a bogey-4 at the 16th. Otherwise he splashed five red numbers on the front nine (at 1, 5, 7, 8 and 9, the latter from 30'0"), then another three on the way home (at 11, 15 and 17). Heady stuff for a man whose had three seconds on the Australiasian Tour and been twice third on this season's European Tour.

Tony Finau settled for a 1-over-par 34-37=71 during round two of the TOUR Championship, dropping to 2-under 138 at halftime which is still good for T10 on the leaderboard.

Finau entered the week with 15 straight rounds in the 60s, beginning at R2 of the PGA Championship. Opening with a 3-under 67 on Thursday, Finau needed just one more today in order to tie the record set by Bob Estes in 2001 (17). It wasn't meant to be on this Friday as he gave himself just four scoring opportunities from inside 15 feet and only six from inside 20 feet. Despite the sub-70 streak finally coming to an end, Finau is still in decent position to make a weekend run at the TOUR Championship and FedExCup trophies, just five off the co-leaders Justin Rose and Tiger Woods. Finau entered the week at 3rd in the FedExCup standings.

Overnight co-leader Tiger Woods racked up five birdies en route to a 2-under-par 35-33=68 during round two of the TOUR Championship, good for 7-under 133 at the midpoint to share the clubhouse lead alongside Justin Rose.

Woods made it easy on himself in round one by splitting 10 (of 14) fairways. Today, he was playing a bit of army golf but really only got in trouble once by those wayward drives. That came at the par-4 16th when he tried to muscle one out of the rough and left himself with an awkward lie in the bunker which led to a punch out and eventually a double bogey. There were plenty of highlights to offset that double and his bogey at the par-3 9th. Most notable were a trio of birdie conversions from the 17-to-24 foot range. Woods currently ranks 7th in SG:Off-the-Tee, 2nd in SG:Around-the-Green, and 6th in SG: Putting. Oddly, he's just 14th in SG:Approach, despite entering the week at 1st on TOUR in that stat. Woods is in prime position to make a run at career win No. 80 and his second at East Lake Golf Club (2007).

World No. 1 Justin Rose crafted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to reach 7-under 133, up two places to T1 and good for a share of the 36-hole lead with overnight co-leader Tiger Woods, who shot 68.

The Englishman found seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.203 approaching and 1.210 around-the-green. He squared two bogey-5s at holes 4 and 16 (failed scrambles), outpaced by five circles at 2, 6, 13, 14 and 18, three from between 17 and 28 feet. The 38-year-old recorded 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.602 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. This is his 14th 36-hole lead/co-lead in 323 events, previously 3-for-13 converting, including at this season's Fort Worth Invitational.

Rory McIlroy continued his ball-striking clinic during round two of the TOUR Championship, twirling a 2-under-par 35-33=68 to arrive at the weekend on 5-under 135 which puts him in solo third just behind World No. 1 Justin Rose and Tiger Woods.

McIlroy is not holding anything back with the big stick, ranking 2nd in driving distance and 1st in strokes gained off-the-tee (+3.190). The big hitter also ranks 3rd in approach to the green. McIlroy has split just 11 (of 28) fairways thru 36 holes (T25) which is not making his task any easier here at East Lake Golf Club which features difficult bermuda rough. His short game hasn't been disastrous but it is the only thing holding him back from a runaway lead right now. He entered the week ranked 17th in the FedExCup standings so he'll need a victory in order to have a chance at securing his second FedExCup title.

Defending champion Xander Schauffele pieced together an even-par 36-34=70 during round two of the TOUR Championship, arriving at the midpoint on 2-under 138 which places him at T10 on the live leaderboard.

Schauffele found just five (of 14) fairways for the second straight day. That ranks 29th in the field in terms of driving accuracy. Despite the troubles on the tee box, the second-year man has still managed to hang around, largely due to his short game (6th in SG:Around-the-Green and 5th in SG:Putting). Today, he overcame a water ball at the 8th and a three-jack at the 15th. Schauffele has not played his best golf through 36 holes but he finds himself just three off his 36-hole pace here last year. He closed with rounds of 65-68 last year to walk straight into the winner's circle. Don't count him out just yet but it would take a superb run over the weekend to go back-to-back.

World No. 7 Jon Rahm bobbed and weaved to a 2-under-par 30-38=68 in the second round of the TOUR Championship for a 36-hole total of 4-under 136, up four places on the live leaderboard to T4, two short of co-leaders on the course Justin Rose and first-round co-leader Tiger Woods.

This is the Spaniard's second appearance after T7 last year (67-67-70-69). He checked in at 24th in the FedExCup standings and has kicked off the postseason with a missed cut (NORTHERN TRUST), a T43 at the Dell Tech, and a T24 at the BMW Championship two weeks ago. The 23-year-old hit seven (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, gaining 0.687 strokes off-the-tee but losing 1.271 approaching and 0.162 around-the-green. He carded seven birdies, six on a first-half 30, but took some luster off with three bogey-5s and a double bogey-5 at 15 (tee ball in the water). The ASU alum's split featured five conversions from between 10 and 22 feet, registering a tidy 1.364 putts per GIR and 3.082 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. Rahm also opened with a 68 (5 birdies, 1 bogey, 1 double).
Sep 21 - 5:29 PM

World No. 23 Patrick Cantlay styled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to reach 4-under 136, up 18 spots on the live leaderboard to T3 and good for the 36-hole clubhouse co-lead with Billy Horschel though four shy of the leader on the course Tiger Woods. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Cantlay is T4, three back of co-leaders Justin Rose and Woods.

The 26-year-old matches the low round of the day thus far with Horschel and ties the low of the week with overnight co-leaders Rickie Fowler and Woods. On seven (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, he gained 0.568 strokes off-the-tee and 3.511 on approach, currently No. 1 on the day in GIR and SG: Approach. The UCLA product squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 1 (failed scramble), smothered by six circles at 3, 4, 6, 9, 12 and 18, two from between 10 and 40 feet. He recorded 1.625 putts per GIR and 1.348 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.
Sep 21 - 5:11 PM

World No. 20 Hideki Matsuyama smoothed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the TOUR Championship for a 36-hole total of 2-under 138, up 13 places to T12 with play still in progress.

The Japanese star went six better than an opening three-birdie, five-bogey 72 and records the first (and only) blemish-free lap of the week thus far. On seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, he lost -0.420 strokes off-the-tee but gained 2.822 on approach and 0.560 around-the-green, and is currently No. 1 for the day in proximity to hole (27'0"). The 25-year-old carded four birdies at holes 1, 6, 14 and 18, all from inside of 10 feet, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.666 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. His 66 matched his best at East Lake in 18 rounds, shot in R1 in 2016 where he finished a personal-best 5th.

Eddie Pepperell joined Oli Fisher and Lucas Herbert in a tie for the 36-hole lead of the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course after a second round 5-under-par 34-32-66 for a total of 12-under 130.

The Englishman is always keen to relate how much he enjoys playing in Vilamoura and that's not changed so far this week. In fact, but for one hole - a double bogey-5 at the 218-yard par-3 sixth on Friday - he has thrashed the Arnold Palmer design. Other than that error he had three front nine birdies (at 3, 5 and 7). He then added more red at the tenth, 12th, 14th and 15th. It gives him a weekend look at a second ET win of the year and his career, an improvement on his course best of T3, and the chance of a fifth top ten in seven starts. The three leaders hold a one shot advantage over Matt Wallace.

Oliver Fisher became the first golfer in European Tour history to post 59; his second round 12-under-par 28-31=59 launching him to the top of the live leaderboard on 12-under 130 in the Portugal Masters at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, Vilamoura. Update:- By day's end Fisher had been joined at the top by both Lucas Herbert and Eddie Pepperell, holding a one shot lead over Matt Wallace.

The front nine of just 28 blows was sensational. He opened with a hat-trick of par breakers, reduced the 579-yard par-5 fifth to just three shots, then added birdie-2s at both 6 and 8. A change in tempo on the way home? Anything but. Again he started with three red numbers in a row, completing it with a tap-in effort at the 593-yard par-5 12th. He added three pars (at 16 from 20'0") whilst taking advantage of the short (315-yard) par-4 15th (from 6'0") and the 588-yard par-5 17th (converting a knee-knocking three-footer). Needing a par on the last he thrashed his drive down the middle of the fairway, played a safe approach and then his 35'0" birdie effort actually grazed the hole's edge before he completed the record-breaker. "I had it in the back of my mind that a few years ago I was playing here to save my card," he said. "So I tried to enjoy it, knowing it could be worse pressure."
