Fully prepped Zach Johnson rattled off a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the opening round of the 100th PGA Championship, sharing a piece of third place after day one.

The Iowa native is comfortable in the Midwest and he was also one of the few golfers to make a visit to Bellerive before this week. That added comfort appeared to pay off on day one as he traded five birdies with one bogey, despite landing just 10 greens in regulation. There was a trio of par-savers from outside seven feet that kept his round rolling. He exited the course with +3.2 strokes gained putting and +1.7 strokes gained around-the-green. This is just the second time in his PGA Championship career that Johnson has posted inside the top 20 after day one. ZJ has a three-pack of top 10s on his PGA Championship resume with a T3 in 2010 being the highlight.

World No. 32 Cameron Smith enjoyed a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to post 8-under 208, up seven places to T4, five adrift of 54-hole leader Brooks Koepka, who also shot bogey-free 67.

The Aussie has one TOUR win in 88 events, a P1 at the 2017 Zurich teamed with Jonas Blixt. His best individual result is 3rd place three times, including here last year (69-68-73-70), one swing short of a 2-man playoff, which chased a T5 at the CIMB as a first-round leader. Five weeks later, the 25-year-old added a 4th at the Australian Open and then capped off 2017 with P1 at the Australian PGA for a run of P1-4-3-T5. Last season, he finished a career-best 12th in the FedExCup standings with seven top 10s in 24 events, highlighted by back-to-back shows at The NT (T3) and Dell Tech (3rd) in the postseason. On 13 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, the Florida resident carded three birdies at holes 5, 7 and 12, adding a mid-range, walk-off eagle-3 at 18. He'll play out of the penultimate threesome in R4.

World No. 28 Rafa Cabrera Bello birdied four of his first five holes en route to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-34=65 on Moving Day at THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES to reach 8-under 208, up 18 spots to T4, five shy of 54-hole leader Brooks Koepka, who shot bogey-free 67.

The Spaniard closed out last week's CIMB with bogey-free 66 to back door a T50. That momentum seemed muted after opening this week in 73, T33 but just five back of R1 leader Chez Reavie. Thirty-six holes later the 28-year-old is still five back but has gained 29 places on the board, adding a six-birdie, four-bogey 70 and today's seven-birdie lap on nine (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation. This is his second CJ CUP after T11 in last year's inaugural (71-70-72-71) and is eyeing his first TOUR title in 72 events. Cabrera Bello's career best is 3rd place two times (T3, 2018 WGC-Mexico; 3rd, 2016 WGC-Dell Match Play) and is a 3-time winner on the Euro Tour in 313 events, most recently a P1 at the 2017 Scottish Open. He'll play out of the penultimate 3-ball in R4 with Cameron Smith and Jamie Lovemark.

Making his tournament debut, overnight leader and World No. 252 Scott Piercy bobbed and weaved to an even-par 35-37=72 in the third round of THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES for a 54-hole total of 9-under 207, down one place into a two-way T2, four short of leader and playing competitor Brooks Koepka, who shot bogey-free 67.

After opening with 70-65, the 39-year-old led by one over Koepka, three clear of Chez Reavie (70), who completed the final threesome. He hit 10 (of 14) fairways and conjured 11 greens in regulation, posting 1.818 putts per GIR with one 3-putt and went 3-for-7 in scrambles. The SDSU alum traded five bogeys at holes 3, 6, 10, 11 and 16 with five circles at 1, 5, 9, 17 and 18, the latter two getting him back to level on the day and back into the final threesome in R4. He's chasing his fifth TOUR title in 266 events, first since the 2018 Zurich 15 starts ago teamed with Billy Horschel. The Las Vegas native and resident's most recent individual win is the 2015 Barbasol as a 54-hole co-leader 81 starts ago.

With three birdies in his final four holes, Ian Poulter completed a 4-under-par 36-32=68 in the third round of the CJ Cup in South Korea, moving up two spots and into a tie for second place on 9-under par 207 with Scott Piercy but four back from new leader Brooks Koepka.

It'll be a tall order for Poulter to reel in the ice-cool three-time major champion but the good news for the Englishman is that he'll be able to stare him in the eye in Sunday's final three-ball. After scores of 70 and 69 over the first two days, Poulter went one lower again today although it was a struggle for a while as he played his first eight holes in 1-over after bogey at No. 4 and seven pars. He began his move with birdies on the par 5s at 9 and 12 before accelerating at the finish with gains at 15, 16 and 18. Playing with two Americans in the final round, especially a prize target like Koekpa, will appeal to Poulter's Ryder Cup sensibilities and his record at this time of year is superb as we highlighted in Friday's Roundup feature. He found 11 (of 14) fairways today and pelted 15 GIRs and, so far this week, is 10-for-11 in scrambling.

Recently-crowned Player of the Year Brooks Koepka stamped his authority on the CJ CUP in South Korea, firing a bogey-free 5-under-par 35-32=67 Saturday to advance to 13-under 2013 thru' 54 holes, good enough for a four-shot lead over compatriot Scott Piercy and England's Ian Poulter.

It's a further stroke back to Rafa Cabrera Bello, Cameron Smith, Jamie Lovemark, Pat Perez, Gary Woodland and Chez Reavie. One back at start of play, Koepka, who would go to World No. 1 for the first time with a win, couldn't find a spark to begin with, scribbling down eight straight pars. But he got going with back-to-back-birdies at 9 and 10, picked up another shot at 14 and closed with circles at 17 and 18. The World No. 3 is 4-for-6 with 54-hole leads and has converted his last four. He held identical positions (4 in front) at the last two editions of the Dunlop Phoenix Tournament in Japan, going on to win those events by one and nine respectively while he landed this year's U.S. Open by one after starting round four tied 1st and then turned a two-shot 54-hole lead at August's PGA Championship into a two-shot win. In short, he's a superb closer and has experience of doing in the Far East. Koepka found 10 (of 14) fairways in R3 and hit 13 GIRs, scrambling successfully each time.

Sergio Garica didn't even get his second round started on Friday at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters as the weather continues to wreak havoc on the event which sees the tournament host in a share of fourth place heading into the weekend.

Garcia has feasted on Valderrama over the course of his career and his opening round was no different. The Spaniard traded four birdies with a lone blemish to find himself just two off the pace set by Ashley Chesters. However, Garcia didn't even play a single shot of his second round before weather suspended play for the day on Friday. With rough weather in the weekend forecast, this looks to be a 54-hole event in the making, and they may need Monday just to accomplish that feat. They will do everything possible to get as much action in as possible, given the Race to Dubai implications for everyone sitting on the bubble to retain their full playing privileges.

First-round pacesetter Chez Reavie battled a cold putter in round two of CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea, settling for a 2-under-par 34-36=70 which dropped him back to solo third spot on 6-under 138.

A 70 was worth plenty in yesterday's cool and windy conditions but not so much in round two which saw Brian Harman shoot 64 and Scott Piercy and Brooks Koepka blast 65s to move into first (-9) and second (-8) respectively. Reavie hit 10 (of 14) fairways and upped his GIR count from 15 to 16 but needed 33 swishes of the putter which was three more than in his opening 68. He looked to be making nice progress today when outpacing a single bogey at 7 with four birdies over his first ten holes but the World No. 64 swallowed back-to-back squares at 15 and 16 before at least giving himself a late boost with a walk-off circle. He ranks 67th in Scrambling and 20th in Putts per GIR up to this point so needs to sharpen up his short game to stay in contention on the weekend.

With a walk-off eagle, Brooks Koepka completed a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in his second round at the CJ CUP on Jeju Island in South Korea, posting 8-under 136 after 36 holes and advancing nine spots up the leaderboard to solo second, just one back from leader Scott Piercy.

After a battling 71 in Thursday's windy opener, the three-time major champ found the going much easier today. He burst out of the gate with a pair of opening birdies and added two more at 5 and 8 before swallowing bogey-6 at the 9th. On the back nine he ticked 12 and 14 before closing out in style with this eagle-3. Koepka, who hit 10 (of 14) fairways, pelted 15 GIRs and took 27 putts, said: "Just keep doing what I'm doing. I'm hitting it well and making putts. I felt like I probably could have shot about 7, 8 under on the front side there, missed a couple." The 28-year-old was in the top four at halfway in all three of his major wins so he's a dangerous customer once he gets the scent of victory. It's no surprise the oddsmakers now have him as clear favorite.

Scott Piercy thrashed a bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 in round two of the CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES in South Korea to post 9-under 135 at the midpoint, good enough for a one-shot lead over Brooks Koepka.

First-round leader Chez Reavie (70) is third on 6-under while it's a further stroke back to Alex Noren (65) and Ian Poulter (69). Piercy had opened with a 70 to lie T4 after round one but, in easier scoring conditions, put on a stripe show to hit top spot. After opening with four straight pars from the 10th, the birdies flowed and he ticked 14, 15 and 18 on his opening nine before adding further circles at 1, 3, 5 and 9. Usually a stud tee-to-green, Piercy proved it today by piping 13 of the admittedly wide 14 fairways and hitting 16 greens. It's often the flatstick that lets him down but the World No. 252 is ranked 7th in Putts per GIR thru' 36 holes. This is the fourth time he's held the halfway lead on the PGA TOUR and he's converted one of the previous three (2012 Canadian Open).

Ashley Chesters set the clubhouse target on a day of weather disruption in the Andalucia Masters Valderrama at Real Club Valderrama, Spain; his 5-under-par 32-34=66 left him one clear of Gregory Bourdy in a first round that will remain incomplete at day's end.

The Englishman hinted that he liked this track 12 months ago when he finished T12, but on that occasion it was his weekend work which helped (69-68) after he went 72-74 through 36 holes. The start is also notable for potentially (reliant on the end of the lap tomorrow) being his maiden first round lead at this level of the sport (he has twice shared second). His front nine was flawless with birdies at the second, fifth and eighth, however he opened the back nine with a mistake at the tenth. He made immediate repairs with red at No. 11 and then closed with a pair of ticks at 17 and 18. A five-time top ten finisher on the European Tour he is still seeking a top five, never mind a first win.

Sergio Garcia was tied for the lead on 3-under-par after 14 holes of his opening round when the threat of lightning halted play at the Andalucia Valderrama Masters in Spain. UPDATE: Play due to restart 5pm local time

Garcia, who has two wins and a series of big finishes at the famed tree-lined track, had given a masterclass for most of the day with birdies at 11, 13, 18 and 2 against a lone dropped shot at 3. He'd added pars at 4 and 5 before the hooter sounded at 2.50pm local time. That put play even further behind after inclement weather and lightning had pushed tee times back two hours this morning. Garcia was tied at the top with Australian Jason Scrivener (14), France's Grégory Bourdy (13) and England's Ashley Chesters (12) while Lee Westwood, playing alongside Sergio, was a further shot back.
