Xander Schauffele was leading at the midpoint and found himself with a chance to win during round four of the BMW Championship but ultimately came up one shot shy with a 3-under-par 34-33=67, good for a finish of 19-under 261 (T3 alongside Rory McIlroy).

The reigning Rookie of the Year opened the week with rounds of 63-64 but the birdie machine went cold from there (67-67). Schauffele started today's round just one off the pace before starting the day with five pars and a bogey before circling his first birdie. The main highlight came at the par-3 17th when he splashed home a 22'1" birdie to put his name back into the winning conversation. He needed to sink a similar-length putt at the 18th to play his way into the playoff but couldn't replicate the magic. Schauffele might have been in the mix for the final American Ryder Cup captain's pick but he likely needed to win this week to really push his name. It's still shaping up to be a strong year as he vaulted from 41st to 18th in the FedExCup race, giving him a chance to defend his title at East Lake.

Danny Willet confirmed his emergence from the doldrums with a stunning victory in the DP World Tour Championship; his final round 4-under-par 33-35=68 saw him total 18-under 270 to withstand the concerted challenge of Patrick Reed and Matt Wallace (two shots back in second) on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates.

Few players have won a major championship and then bottomed out quite as swiftly as Willett did. Injury, motivation, caddie problems and swing coach changes all took their toll after his 2016 Masters win, but with this success he can now look forward and not to the past. With an eagle and birdie on the front nine (at 2 and 7) he looked in control, but he layed up from the 12th tee straight into a bunker and went on to make bogey; a second bogey in three holes. Suddenly he was in a scrap. The response, however, was perfect: Three par breakers in four holes at 14, 15 and 17. The latter came from a tee shot to 3’0" moments after Reed had failed to convert a birdie chance to join him in the lead; they were key moments. Willett hit a poor tee shot on 18, another lay up, but got lucky and parred for the win. "It’s been a lot of hard work, it’s been tough," he said afterwards through the tears. "Massively proud of myself and the family."

Francesco Molinari was confirmed as the winner of the European Tour’s Race to Dubai after the final round of the DP World Tour Championship on the Earth Course at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai.

The Italian’s magical year has seen him transformed from a player who won less than he should to the BMW PGA Championship and Open Championship winner, and from a Ryder Cup bit-part performer to a man who won five of five in Europe’s stunning victory in Paris. He was quite clearly exhausted as the season neared its finale, but the hard work that had gone before left him well enough placed. He ended the week T26 on 6-under 282, however his only challenger for the title Tommy Fleetwood was also playing on fumes; his T16 was nowhere near enough to pinch Europe’s number one ranking from Molinari.

Playing out of the final threesome, sponsor invite and World No. 719 Jason Gore rallied for a 4-under-par 36-30=66 in the third round of The RSM Classic for a 54-hole total of 15-under 197, good for a two-way T2, which is where he began, one shy of overnight leader Charles Howell III, who shot 68.

The 44-year-old is trying to become the first player to win on a sponsor exemption since Billy Hurley III at the 2016 Quicken Loans (Congressional CC), who was the 54-hole leader by two. He's also chasing his second TOUR title, first since the 2005 84 LUMBER Classic. After opening with 68 and day-tying-low 63, the Pepperdine alum began three back and piped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation. He lost 0.671 strokes approaching but gained 0.760 off-the-tee and 0.670 around-the-green. The California native squared two bogeys at holes 3 and 9, both missed par-savers from inside of five feet, offset by four birdies, all from between 12 and 23 feet, adding eagle-3 at 15 from 18'0". He recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and 0.741 SG: Putting, and will play out of the final threesome again in R4.

After opening with 68 and day-tying-low 63, the 23-year-old began in a two-way T2, three adrift, and is still in a two-way T2.

The California native squared three bogeys at holes 4, 6 (3-putt from 33'9") and 12, outflanked by seven birdies, highlighted by four straight at holes 7-10. His split included four conversions from between 11 and 27 feet, posting 1.401 SG: Putting.

First- and second-round leader and World No. 84 Charles Howell III carved out a 2-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of The RSM Classic for a 54-hole tally of 16-under 196, good for a one-shot lead over playing competitors Jason Gore and Cameron Champ, who both shot 66s.

The 39-year-old is eyeing his third TOUR title in 529 events, first since a come-from-behind win at the 2007 Nissan Open 333 starts ago. After kicking off with twin 64s, both rounds bogey-free, he led Gore and Champ by three strokes. The Augusta, Georgia, native hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 0.511 strokes off-the-tee but losing 0.230 around-the-green. He squared three bogey-5s at holes 4, 14 and 16 (3-putt from 17'6"), outpaced by five circles at 1, 3, 6, 8 and 15, three from between 11 and 18 feet. The Oklahoma State product, who will play with Gore and Champ again in R4, posted 1.733 putts per GIR and -0.996 SG: Putting.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 172 Patrick Rodgers enjoyed a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-29=61 in the third round of The RSM Classic for a 54-hole total of 11-under 201, up 58 places to T7 with play winding down and good for the low round of the week.

This is a career low in 349 rounds for the Stanford product, previously 63 in R3 at the 2015 Travelers, and is one short of the course record. After opening with twin 70s, he began T65 on 2-under, one of 14 players to make the cut on the number, and four swings short of the overnight top 10. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, the 26-year-old gained 0.878 strokes off-the-tee, 1.013 on approach and 2.612 tee-to-green. He carded nine birdies, highlighted by four straight at 10-13 to begin his round, registering 1.467 putts per GIR and 3.884 SG: Putting.

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.
