Sutherland books final start on Major Medical 07-06-2013
Kevin Sutherland
Kevin Sutherland is listed in the published field of next week's John Deere Classic.

PGATOUR.com
Should he honor this commitment, this will be Sutherland's last start via his Major Medical Extension. To retain status, he needs to earn $236,994. That would require no worse than a three-way T3 worth $239,200. (A solo fourth pays $220,800.) Don't rule it out. He last competed at the Travelers and finished T18, so the game is there, and he's 9-for-10 at TPC Deere Run with three top 10s. He' already eclipsed the threshold to secure conditional status. The JDC has a purse of just $4.6 million.
Short, Jr. gets demoted after Greenbrier MC 07-06-2013
Wes Short, Jr.
In the final start on his Major Medical Extension, Wes Short, Jr. missed the cut at The Greenbrier Classic by seven strokes.

PGATOUR.com
He turned in respective rounds of 75 and 71 with four birdies, eight bogeys and a double. To avoid falling into the Past Champions category, he needed no worse than a solo third at The Old White TPC for conditional status. For the record, he fell short of meeting the terms of his MME by $672,626 and conditional status by $386,643. Short, Jr. is fourth alternate for next week's John Deere Classic. He turns 50 years of age on Dec. 4.

PGATOUR.com
The Swede circled only birdie despite hitting 17 greens in regulation, which wasn't impressive either. He went 0-for-8 in birdie chances in his second round. He'll head to next week's John Deere Classic with two starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $570,846 and retain status.
Snyder III six swings too many at Greenbrier 07-06-2013
Joey Snyder III

Scott Verplank
Scott Verplank shot 7-over-par 77-70=147 at The Greenbrier Classic and missed the cut by eight strokes.

PGATOUR.com
He buried five birdies but squared eight bogeys. He added a snowman at the par-4 16th hole in his opening round, rinsing his tee ball and his third. Now 3-for-10 on the season, he has eight starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $575,837 and retain status. He'll try again next week's John Deere Classic.
Trahan one of 10 MDFs at The Old White TPC 07-06-2013
D.J. Trahan
D.J. Trahan suffered a bogey on his final hole of the third round of The Greenbrier Classic, signing for a 2-over-par 36-36=72 and missing the 54-hole cut on the number at 1-over 211. Others joining Trahan on the bench for the final round are Scott Brown (211), Dicky Pride (211), Alistair Presnell (211), Neal Lancaster (212), Fabian Gomez (213), Gary Christian (213), Ben Crane (213), Erik Compton (215) and Brad Adamonis (216).
Every falls hard in Greembrier third round 07-06-2013
Matt Every
Matt Every swallowed a 4-over-par 38-36=74 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic, falling hard after holding the 36-hole lead. His crazy scorecard included four birdies, four bogeys and a pair of double bogeys. His irons were nervous, finding just eight GIR on the afternoon while surrendering over a stroke to the field with the putter. At 5-under 205, his first PGA TOUR win will likely have to wait.
Bowditch posts a 69 in Greebrier third round 07-06-2013
Steven Bowditch
Steven Bowditch enters the final round of The Greenbrier Classic tied for third at 9-under-par 201 after a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round. Bowditch had a somewhat wild ride around The Old White TPC, picking up five birdies while giving back four bogeys. The highlight was a 33-foot birdie at the par-4 16th. His 16 birdies are tied for tops in the tournament, but the seven bogeys on the card have held him back. His 81.48 percent GIR rank him safely inside the top five for the week. He will be one of many looking for their first PGA TOUR win in the finale.
Wagner the 54-hole leader in West Virginia 07-06-2013
Johnson Wagner
Johnson Wagner surged ahead in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic with a 6-under-par 31-33=64 and leads by two over Jimmy Walker at 14-under 196 with just one round remaining. Wagner circled seven birdies to just one bogey in his lap around The Old White TPC. Everything was clicking. He split 12 (of 14) fairways, landed 15 GIR and picked up over three strokes to the field with his putter. Knowing that, it is no surprise that five of his seven birdies fell from outside nine feet. The Virginia Tech product should have plenty of people cheering him on as he looks to pick up his fourth PGA TOUR win and first in the state of West Virginia.
Gainey remains in top 10 at The Old White TPC 07-06-2013
Tommy Gainey
Tommy Gainey signed for a 1-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic. Gainey has now played his last 36 holes in even par after opening with a 62 on Thursday. It's been a different problem each of the last two days. In Friday's second round he only landed seven GIR. He bounced back with 14 in round three, but gave back strokes to the field with the flat stick. He will hope that it all clicks in the finale, as his 8-under 202 total is probably a little too far back to claim the title without something similar to his opening 62.
Blixt chasing sophomore win in West Virginia 07-06-2013
Jonas Blixt is firmly in the picture at The Greenbrier Classic following a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in the third round, entering the final round at 10-under 200. The Swede jumped on the board in West Virginia with three birdies on his first seven holes. It would be all pars until his only blemish popped up at the par-4 13th in the form of a double bogey. His drive went left and ultimately led to a penalty stroke. He bounced back with a 47'3" birdie on the par-3 15th and added a fifth and final birdie from 4'9" on the par-5 17th. At the time of his posting, he was leading the field in strokes gained-putting. A winner in his rookie season, he's looking to continue the streak in his sophomore year.
Ridings stalking top 10 at The Old White TPC 07-06-2013
Tag Ridings
Tag Ridings turned in a 2-under-par 32-36=68 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and has his sights set on a top-10 finish at 8-under 202. Ridings circled three birdies to just one bogey in his trot around The Old White TPC. He needs a big week to vault inside the top 125 in the FedExCup standings. In real time, he is projected 126th in points and in a tie for seventh in the tournament. He landed an impressive 16 GIR on the afternoon.
Walker fires 64; leads Greenbrier at 12-under 07-06-2013
Jimmy Walker
Jimmy Walker blitzed The Old White TPC for a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and has assumed the lead at 12-under 198. Walker started off rather discreetly on his afternoon, with a birdie and eight pars. The back nine would be a different story, picking up birdies on the 10th, 12th, 13th, 14th and 18th, with pars on the others. The first four birdies were from inside 10 feet, but he added to his strokes gained-putting stat with 16'3" and 16'11" birdies on 14 and 18. He did his damage despite finding just 12 GIR, picking up over three strokes on the field with the putter.
D.H. Lee eyes second top 10 in as many weeks 07-06-2013
D.H. Lee made his way around The Old White TPC in 2-under-par 33-35=68, reaching the 54-hole mark at The Greenbrier Classic at 8-under 202. Lee tied for third at Congressional Country Club last week, and his form made the trip to West Virginia. His round featured four birdies to just two bogeys, but his 12 GIR were the lowest tally of the week. With his comfort level high, he will try and make a final-round push for his first PGA TOUR win on Sunday.
Spieth continues push for 1st PGA TOUR win 07-06-2013
Jordan Spieth
Jordan Spieth continues to knock on the door of his first PGA TOUR victory and a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Greenbrier Classic has him sitting beside Matt Jones in the clubhouse lead at 9-under 201. The rookie was a fixture on the leaderboard at AT&T National much of the weekend last week, but the putter let him down. That wasn't the case in his third navigation of The Old White TPC, as three of his five birdies were from 15 feet or longer. Despite finding just eight GIR, he gained over a stroke on the field with the flat stick as he has every round this week.
B. Adams remains on pace for October return 07-06-2013
Blake Adams
In an update courtesy of The Daily Citizen on Friday, Blake Adams reiterated that his plan is to return to competition in October.

The Daily Citizen
"My rehabilitation is going as planned," he said. "I have started playing rounds of golf and according to my therapists and doctors, I am ahead of schedule. These last few months have been a very humbling experience and a long process. However, I can see the light at the end of the tunnel and I look forward to finally playing a round of golf pain free! I work out daily and I am practicing hard to make my personal goal of returning to the PGA TOUR in October. I don't see why I won't reach my goal." This is basically a confirmation of what he said in late April. Given the news, he's shaping up to be a valuable asset for salary gamers next season.
Sabbatini stalking his third top 10 of 2013 07-06-2013
Rory Sabbatini
Rory Sabbatini spun a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic, joining Bill Haas and Pat Perez at 8-under 202. Sabo already has two top 10s in 2013, but is the FedExCup bubble boy at 125 in the current standings. His round featured four birdies to just one bogey, landing 14 GIR and picking up over a stroke with the flat stick. In real time, he's projected 110th in the FedExCup standings, so a top-five finish would likely mean his 2013-14 card is secure.
M. Jones leads at The Old White TPC; 9-under 07-06-2013
Matt Jones
Matt Jones carded a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and leads in the clubhouse at 9-under 201. Jones had a relatively clean day at The Old White TPC, circling five birdies to just one bogey on the afternoon. Four of those five birdies fell from inside eight feet. While he only managed to split half his fairways, his 14 GIR more than made up for a balky driver. His flat stick also picked up him close to two strokes on the field. He will try and join the lengthy list of first-time winners in 2013 on Sunday.
B. Haas aims to go back-to-back at Greenbrier 07-06-2013
Bill Haas
Bill Haas heated up late in his third round at The Greenbrier Classic, signing for a 3-under-par 33-34=67 and joining Pat Perez in the clubhouse lead at 8-under 202. A week after winning at Congressional CC, Haas has put his name in the hat at The Old White TPC. After trading a birdie and a bogey over his first 14 holes, he jumped on the birdie train and rattled off a 32'2" birdie at the par-3 15th, a 23'3" birdie at the par-4 16th and a 2'8" tap in at the par-5 17th before saving par at the par-3 18th. He's landed 79.63 percent of his GIR for the tournament.
Hoffmann cools to 67 late @ The Old White TPC 07-06-2013
Morgan Hoffmann
Morgan Hoffmann settled for a 3-under-par 30-37=67 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic, joining Gary Woodland at 7-under 203. Hoffman started on fire, finding birdies on five of his first 10 holes and briefly sharing the lead at The Old White TPC. He went on tilt late, dropping strokes at the par-4 14th and par-5 17th. He ended his round by giving his par putt from 15 feet on the par-3 18th just enough juice to find the bottom of the cut after hanging on the edge. Despite finding just half of his 14 fairways, he managed to hold 15 GIR.
Perez takes top seat in Greenbrier clubhouse 07-06-2013
Pat Perez
Pat Perez signed for a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and is the first man to post 8-under 202 in the clubhouse. Perez circled three birdies and an eagle to just one bogey in his third lap around The Old White TPC. Each of his red numbers fell from nine feet or longer, including a 48'2" eagle chip from the rough on the par-5 12th and a 20'6" birdie chip on the par-3 15th. He's positioned himself to chase his second PGA TOUR title in the finale. His only other win was at the 2009 Bob Hope Classic, now the Humana Challenge.
Stallings playing nicely in Greenbrier return 07-06-2013
Scott Stallings
Scott Stallings posted a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic. Stallings was the winner here in 2011, but settled for a share of 56th in his 2012 defense at The Old White TPC. With rounds of 70-67-67=204 placing him at 6-under for the tournament, it's likely last year's disappointing result had more to do with the distractions of defending than anything else. He's hit either 13 or 14 GIR in each of his three rounds.
Bogey-free 65 in Greenbrier 3rd rd. for Percy 07-06-2013
Cameron Percy
Cameron Percy spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 30-35=65 in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic to reach the 54-hole mark at 6-under 204. Percy entered the week 164th in the FedExCup standings, so he has plenty of ground to make up if he hopes to make the Playoffs and retain his 2013-14 PGA TOUR card. He started his day at The Old White TPC hot, making birdies on four of his first five holes. He would have to wait all the way to the par-3 18th for his fifth birdie. Ball-striking was excellent, splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and landing 15 GIR.
Woodland sets early pace at The Old White TPC 07-06-2013
Gary Woodland
Gary Woodland went out early in the third round of The Greenbrier Classic and lit up The Old White TPC for a 6-under-par 31-33=64. Woodland made the 36-hole cut on the number, but improves his position dramatically thanks to five birdies and an eagle from 39'11" on the 616 yard par-5 17th. He found 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 GIR, picked up over two strokes on the field with the flat stick. He was without a blemish until he missed the green on the par-3 18th and settled for bogey, but at 7-under 203, he is the leader in the clubhouse and tied for seventh in real time. The final pairing of Matt Every and Daniel Summerhays doesn't go off until 1:50 p.m. ET.
