Jordan Spieth has committed to play in the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open which takes place on November 1st thru 4th in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Spieth made headlines last month when he failed to reach East Lake and therefore failed to meet the 25 starts needed to fulfill the requirement for membership under the new-event policy that went into place a few years ago. There won't be any official ruling released but this certainly could have been one of the compromises made by Spieth to avoid a hefty fine or suspension. This will be the first time that Spieth tees it in the fall event that takes place in the continental United States. A star-studded field is taking shape with four of his Ryder Cup teammates also set to play TPC Summerlin in a few weeks (Tony Finau, Bryson DeChambeau, Rickie Fowler, and Webb Simpson). The position-based layout should be a great for fit Spieth.

With his best round of the week, a 3-under-par 32-37=69, Sam Horsfield jumped 14 spots up the leaderboard on day four to finish in a three-way tie for fifth spot in his home British Masters at Walton Heath.

His 72-hole total of 4-under 284 was a nice response to yesterday's 74 which had dropped the Englishman out of contention after he'd opened 71-70. Horsfield started his day with par and then went on a birdie blitz with gains at 2, 4, 5, 6 and 7. That superb run ended with bogey at 9 and he lost momentum further with back-to-back squares at 12 and 13. He'd bogeyed 15, 16 and 17 in round three but went birdie-par-par today and another par at the last gave him a third top five of the season but first since early March. More significantly, the rookie now moves from 67th to 52nd on the Race to Dubai and inside that all-important top 60.

Jordan Smith matched his best finish of the season with tied third place at the British Masters; the Englishman authored a closing 1-over-par 36-37=73 to finish at 5-under 283, four back from winner Eddie Pepperell.

This was the local man's highest round of the week following laps of 71-69-70 but, with conditions tough, he dropped just a single spot on the day. Smith traded birdies at 2 and 6 against bogeys at 5 and 7 going out before swallowing bogey-6 at 11, a hole which he'd eagled the last two days. Another shot went at 14 but a circle at 15 and three closing pars meant he matched the T3 he posted at the Volvo China Open back in April. This is his fourth top ten of the season and two have come in his last four starts. Smith advances to 40th on the Race to Dubai, a rise of 17 spots.

After finishing T2 at the Portugal Masters and T7 at the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship in his last two starts, Lucas Herbert made it three top tens on the spin as a closing 3-under-par 32-37=69 secured tied third place at the British Masters in England with 5-under 283.

That was four swings behind two-shot winner Eddie Pepperell. The Aussie had jumped to 50th on the Race to Dubai heading to Walton Heath and this week's effort lifts him to 38th. Despite the wet weather, Herbert roared through the first six holes in 4-under after gains at 2, 4, 5 and 6. He found it tougher coming home and surrounded another red number at 11 with bogeys at 10, 12 and 13. But the World No. 104 steadied the ship over the tough closing stretch and ended with four pars and a birdie at 15 to bank his fifth top three of the season. Herbert now has one of Europe's top caddies, Craig Connelly, on the bag so his reputation on these shores is growing fast.

Alexander Bjork gave it a great shot in the final round of the British Masters in England but eventually came up two shots shy of winner Eddie Pepperell after authoring a closing 1-under-par 34-37=71 to finish at 7-under 281.

Playing alongside the winner, the Swede carefully picked off birdies at 2, 5 and 11 but had to witness a Pepperell hole-out for eagle at 10. A bogey at 13 along with an unlikely Pepperell par save at 14 put the gap back to three (where it started today) but the Englishman blinked with dropped shots at 15 and 16. One behind with two to play, Bjork attacked the back flag at 17 but missed his birdie try and a loose drive at the last led to bogey as Pepperell held firm with two pars. This was a fine effort by the World No. 89 and a return to the form which had vanished in recent weeks. Bjork, ranked 22nd on the Race to Dubai ahead of this week, is one to watch in the closing months of the season.

Local hero Eddie Pepperell became the first wire-to-wire winner on the European Tour this season after shooting even-par 36-36=72 in the final round of the British Masters in England, his winning score of 9-under 279 at Walton Heath securing a two-shot victory over Alexander Bjork and giving him a second trophy of the season.

Lucas Herbert and Jordan Smith finished tied third, four shots behind the winner. Pepperell had some crisis moments on the way to victory but this always felt like his week. A three-putt at nine was his first wobble but he responded by draining his approach to the par-4 10th (watch here) for his fourth eagle of the week. Later, he failed to reach the putting surface at the par-4 14th in three but holed a long putt from off the green for an unlikely par save. The World No. 50 almost opened the door with bogeys at 15 and 16 to see his lead cut to one but an up-and-down from sand at 18 against a Bjork bogey confirmed him as champion. Having entered 2018 without a win at this level, Pepperell now has two following his earlier success at the Qatar Masters. "It was such a tough day, an absolute grind," he said, referring to the cold and rainy conditions.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 36 Louis Oosthuizen patched together a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the final round of the CIMB Classic, dipping one spot to T5 on 20-under 268, six short of overnight tri-leader and champion Marc Leishman, who shot 65.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, the 35-year-old began two back and hit seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation. He conjured four birdies versus one bogey-5 at 12, recording 1.833 putts per GIR with 28 total putts. For the week, the Palm Beach Gardens, Florida, resident tallied 25 birdies against three bogeys and one double. This is his 28th top 10 in 153 career TOUR events, first since T5 at the 2018 Fort Worth Invitational back in May (eight starts ago). The South African, who posted rounds of 66-68-65-69, is in the published field at this coming week's CJ CUP in Korea where he'll be making his tourney debut.

World No. 78 Charles Howell III navigated a 5-under-par 31-36=67 in the final round of the CIMB Classic to finish up on 20-under 268, up two places to T5, six back of overnight tri-leader and champion Marc Leishman, who shot 65.

This was the 39-year-old's fifth appearance, third top 25 and third top 10, bettering a T7 on debut in 2014. He recorded rounds of 69-67-65-67, the first time he's connected four sub-par laps since T9 at the 2018 Byron Nelson 11 starts ago. The Oklahoma State product also nabs his first top 5 since T4 at last season's OHL Classic 11 months ago. For the week, he tallied one eagle and 23 birdies against seven bogeys and one double and was No. 1 in greens in regulation at 90.28 percent (65/72). On 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 GIR, the Augusta, Georgia, native outpaced two bogeys and double bogey-5 at 11 with seven birdies and a hole-out eagle-2 at 7. He registered 1.533 putts per GIR with 28 total putts.
