Rickie Fowler won the ASI Scottish Open at Gullane when it last staged the event three years ago and he's on track to make another title challenge at the East Lothian venue after opening his bid with a 6-under-par 30-34=64, good enough for a share of the clubhouse lead with Robert Rock. UPDATE: Fowler finished R1 in a five-way tie for second, one behind fellow American Luke List

That's a shot clear of Richard Sterne, Matthew Southgate and Julien Guerrier while Sweden's Jens Dantorp is also at 6-under with four to play. Fowler made a blistering start and had already reached 5-under thru' six holes. That was thanks to a trio of red numbers at 2, 3 and 4 along with eagle-2 at No. 6 after driving the green. When he also ticked 11 and 12 to hit 7-under there were thoughts of the European Tour's first official 59 but the American could only play his final six holes in 1-over after a bogey at 13 and five pars. Fowler's links credentials are well known and this is a great way to start as he looks to win at Gullane again and then try and secure his first major title in next week's Open Championship at Carnoustie.

Danny Willett's difficult 2018 has the potential to be dramatically transformed after a third round 4-under-par 34-34=68 left him tied for the lead with Patrick Reed on 14-under 202 in the DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

The Englishman and the American, both owners of green jackets, are one clear of Jordan Smith, but have ten men within four swings of them so little wonder Willett said after his round: "A lot of golf to go, but the golf game is in good shape. To feel this good is a real bonus at the end of a tough year." The 31-year-old will be looking for a first win post- Augusta, April 2016 and just a third top five since then (and second of the year). He earned the opportunity with a burst of three birdies in a row late in the day at the 14th, 15th and 16th, an effort that swept him into the final group. Earlier he had ticked 5 and 7 on the front nine, but made bogey at the 12th. He is 1-for-3 with shared 54-hole leads (and 2-for-3 with solo ones, both wins coming from one shot advantages). His 68 was only his second sub-70 lap in this tournament at the weekend and he is yet to shoot in the 60s on a Sunday.

Patrick Reed heads into the final round of the DP World Tour Championship tied for the lead with Danny Willett on 14-under 202, one swing clear of Jordan Smith after a third round 5-under-par 35-32=67 at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

It's all set for a Sunday head-to-head between the 2016 and 2018 Masters champions, but there are 12 men within four strokes of the lead as the European Tour prepares for the last lap of the 2018 season. Reed constructed a solid front nine, exchanging two birdie-4s at 2 and 7 with a bogey at the fourth. But the sweep home was clinical, witnessing birdies at the 11th (a third of the week), 13th (from 30'0"), 14th (a superb chip-and-putt) and 16th. Note for Sunday that he thrives around the turn, playing the nine holes from the sixth tee in 12-under this week. A good Moving Day number was also no surprise based on history: His two previous R3's on the Earth Course had been 68s, but he has mixed memories of Sunday - 68 last year, 73 in 2015. He is an impressive 4-for-6 at converting 54-hole leads. Only one of those was shared, his first, in the 2013 Wyndham Championship, and it resulted in play-off victory.

Playing the Seaside Course, World No. 100 C.T Pan bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in the second round of The RSM Classic and at even-par 71-71=142, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 77 pros and one amateur from a field of 155 pros and one amateur made the 36-hole cut of 2-under 140. Pan, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, was highest up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the road and ended his consecutive cuts made streak at 12, which included three straight top-25 finishes on arrival. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, the 27-year-old rang up seven birdies but took the luster off with three bogeys and a triple bogey-7 on his first hole. For the short week, he totaled nine birdies versus six bogeys and the triple, and ranked T91 in GIR at 66.67 percent (24/36). Other notable early exits include: 141- Keith Mitchell .. 142- Jim Furyk; Michael Thompson .. 143- Stewart Cink; Sam Ryder; Whee Kim; Bill Haas .. 144- Chesson Hadley .. 145- Russell Henley .. 146- Bud Cauley.

Cameron Champ kept his game on cruise control during round two of The RSM Classic, coasting to a 7-under-par 33-30=63 to reach 11-under 131 at the midpoint which puts him in a share of second place, just three off the torrid pace set by Charles Howell III.

The Texas A&M product was slow out of the gate today as he missed a 7'9" par putt at the par-4 second hole. He figured out the greens shortly after that, ending with nine putts converted from outside seven feet today. That was good for 4.885 strokes gained putting. Ball-striking highlights included a pair of par-3 tee balls that landed inside five feet, including a 221-yard approach at the 12th which landed inside three feet. This matches the low round recorded on the Seaside Course this week (Jason Gore). After R1 Champ said, "length on this course is pretty much irrelevant." After gaining more than 9 strokes putting during his Sanderson Farms victory, he is continuing to prove that he's more than a one-trick pony. He has now signed sub-70 scores in 13 of his last 15 rounds played.

Nick Watney walked all over the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club, posting an 8-under-par 31-33=64 during round two of The RSM Classic, flying into third place on the live leaderboard as he sits on 9-under 133.

Watney gained 2.198 strokes on approach in round one but couldn't catch fire with the putter. That changed today as he split 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 17 greens. It probably felt like another cold-putter day after a three-putt bogey to start his round. He needed just 10 putts over the next eight holes, aided by a hole-out eagle at the par-5 eighth hole. This is a season-low score for Watney and his lowest recorded since another 64 since R2 of the 2017 Greenbrier. Jason Gore has the honors of low score today (7-under 63) but Watney's 8-under 64 is the lowest relative to par today and also the lowest recorded on the Plantation Course on Friday. Watney arrived with a missed cut and solo 85th on his RSM resume so this will easily result in a new tournament best come Sunday afternoon.

Charles Howell III remains blemish-free at the midpoint of the RSM Classic, coasting to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round two at Sea Island's Seaside Course, giving him a halftime score of 14-under 128 which is three clear of Jason Gore and five shots clear of the rest of the pack.

CH3 piped all 14 fairways and landed all 18 greens on day one. He regressed today but not by much, still splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and finding 16 greens in regulation. His putter was strong again today, splashing home four putts from outside 13 feet. Yesterday was his lowest career round recorded at the Plantation Course and today was his second-lowest round recorded at the Seaside Course (R4 62 in 2010). Making his ninth appearance at this event, he is looking to pick up his fifth top 15 at the RSM and also hopes to secure the third PGA TOUR title of his career (529th career start). His last win came way back in 2007 at Riviera Country Club. This will be his eighth career 36-hole lead/co-lead and first since the 2010 Heritage. He is 0-for-7 in converted those to wins.

Playing the Plantation Course, local resident and World No. 45 Brian Harman carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of The RSM Classic for a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, up four spots on the live leaderboard to T3, six adrift of leader Charles Howell III, who was also the 18-hole pace-setter.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Georgia alum found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, recording 1.733 putts per GIR. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 11 (3-putt), camouflaged by five circles at 13, 16, 18, 1 and 9. The 31-year-old, who finished T4 here last year, is chasing his third TOUR title, first since a come-from-behind win at the 2017 Wells Fargo. He's a St. Simons Island, Georgia, resident and trains at Sea Island.

Playing the Seaside Course, World No. 295 Ryan Blaum fired a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the second round of The RSM Classic to reach 8-under 134, up 13 places on the live leaderboard to T3, three short of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jason Gore and six shy of the leader on the course Charles Howell III, who was the 18-hole pace-setter.

The Duke alum landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.583 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 0.737 on approach and 0.876 around-the-green. He squared three bogeys at holes 1, 3, and 8, outpaced by eight birdies at 3, 7, 9 and five straight at 13-17. The 35-year-old's split included four conversions from between 11 and 31 feet, and a hole-out 3 at 14 from 36'10" away, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 4.011 SG: Putting. This is his third RSM with a best of T71/MDF two tries ago in 2017, and checked in 3-for-4 on the season with one top 25, a T20 at the Sanderson Farms three starts ago.

Jason Gore went wild at Sea Island's Seaside Course during round two of The RSM Classic, tossing together a 7-under-par 33-30=63 to reach 11-under 131 at the midpoint, placing him at solo second on the live leaderboard.

The Pepperdine product cracked the field this week via sponsor's invite. He entered with missed cuts in 16 of his last 17 PGA TOUR appearances but he's not letting that stop him this week at Sea Island Golf Club. Gore traded six birdies with a pair of bogeys at the Plantation Course on Thursday. Today he turned his attention toward the tougher Seaside Course and took it even lower. It was ball-striking that got the job done early but his putter warmed up by day's end. He rolled in four putts from outside 11 feet including a 26'8" birdie bomb at the par-3 17th. That was good for 4.990 strokes gained putting at the time he walked off the course. This is the lowest round (by two strokes) recorded at the Seaside Course so far this week.

Tommy Fleetwood has to win this week's DP World Tour Championship to capture the Race to Dubai for a second successive season and his bid remains firmly on track after a second bogey-free round at the Earth Course, a 5-under-par 34-33=67 which took him to 8-under 136 and up four spots to tied sixth.

That's three behind leader Matt Wallace. The equation for Fleetwood is simple; he has to take the trophy and then hope great friend Francesco Molinari finishes sixth or worse. With Molinari down in T27 on 3-under after a Friday 73, Fleetwood's hopes took a jump today. He had to grind out a score in Thursday's opener, adding some gloss with birdies at two of final five holes for a 69. But this morning he looked much more fluent, picking up shots at 1, 8, 10, 11 and 15. A look at his scorecard shows that all those birdies were on par 4s. If Fleetwood can continue to keep the bogeys away and cash in on the par 5s this weekend, what looked a long-shot could become a very realistic possibility.

Eddie Pepperell gave it a go at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship but his back troubles forced him to withdraw ahead of round two.

The Englishman recently made the journey to China for the WGC-HSBC Champions but was left in pain on the physio's table instead of teeing it up. With a few weeks of rest he hoped to compete this week in Dubai and opened the week with a 5-over 75 to find himself just one stroke in front of last place. He provided an update today on social media, starting with an apology to first alternate Benjamin Hebert and then saying "My back was good yesterday but unfortunately not right today. Pretty gutted and frustrated to WD today." A pair of wins this year has vaulted him to 35th in the OWGR but he remains a risky option for gamers moving forward until he can give his back a rest. As we know with back injuries, simply resting doesn't always do the trick.
