UPDATE: DeChambeau jumps 14 places to a career-high 48th in OWGR.

Playing out of the 11th-to-last threesome, the 24-year-old found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.816 strokes approaching and 4.446 tee-to-green. He squared two bogeys at 13 and 14, smothered by seven birdies at 1, 2, 5, and the four spot to wrap on a high note. The SMU product posted 1.462 putts per GIR, No. 1 for the week at 1.522, and 0.970 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. After kicking off in 68-64, he led Kim by one before a 75 set him back. The Dallas resident, who drops to 0-for-4 when leading/co-leading after 36 holes, rebounded for his second top 5 in three RBC's, joining a T4 in 2016 (pro debut). It's his sixth top 25 of the season in 12 starts, fourth top 10 and third top 5.

Jordan Spieth is not playing up to his usual standards as he preps for Carnoustie Golf Links at this week's Open Championship.

The Texas Longhorn has gone six straight starts without a top 20 now. He's actually gained strokes over the field in five of those starts so he hasn't been a complete trainwreck but the Spieth we are used to doesn't go long without cracking a podium finish, let alone go six starts without a top 20. First, it was the putter that ailed him but he's gained strokes putting in each of the last three starts. However, his ball-striking happened to disappear at that same time. In Spieth's short career he typically rounds into form before hoisting the hardware. It's not out of the question for him to repeat this week but it would go against the trends he's established before winning his 11 other PGA TOUR events.

Brandon Stone thrashed a magnificent 60 to hit the clubhouse in what is almost certain to be the winning total at the ASI Scottish Open at Gullane GC in East Lothian; his 10-under-par 31-29=60 leaving him on 20-under 260 and four clear when he signed his card. Update:- Stone, as expected, could not be caught and Eddie Pepperell was second four shots back.

The South African has pulled this result absolutely out of nowhere. He was 144th on the Race to Dubai with a best of T22 in the season, his only finish of better than T39. Even more astonishingly he had a 8'0" putt on the final green for the first 59 in European Tour history. Before then he had ticked 1, 2, 5 and 9 on the front nine, 10, 12, 14 and 15 on the back. But the coup de grace was a looping 20'0" putt on the 15th green which dropped for an eagle-3. Should it be confirmed - and it almost certainly will be - then it will be his third ET win in 89 starts, but first off home soil. Eddie Pepperell on 16-under was his closest challenger, but the final group still had four to play as Stone talked to the press.

Playing out of the third-to-last threesome, World No. 295 Matt Jones tossed up a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the twice weather-delayed third round of the John Deere Classic for a three-day total of 16-under 197, up three spots to solo 3rd, six adrift of leader Michael Kim.

The Arizona State alum is one of only two players that have multiple bogey-free rounds, joining Mackenzie Hughes with two apiece and is now blemish-free over his last 39 holes. He's chasing his second TOUR title in 260 events, joining a come-from-behind win at the 2014 Houston Open 104 starts ago. The 38-year-old landed 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.430 strokes around-the-green and 2.999 tee-to-green. He carded three birdies at holes 1 (from 14'9"), 2, and 14, adding a hole-out eagle-3 at 17 from 36'11" away. The Aussie recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and -0.011 SG: Putting with 26 total putts. He'll play out of the penultimate twosome in R4 with Harold Varner III.

This is Burgoon's third straight start being in the top 10 thru 54 holes but it's the first time in his career that he's been in the top 5.
