N. Thompson holds firm with third-round 67 09-01-2013
Nicholas Thompson
Nicholas Thompson carded a 4-under-par 35-32=67 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 12-under 201. Thompson's round included five birdies to just one bogey. His 14 GIR were the most he's had all week, and his 1.481 strokes gained-putting clip was also tops for his tournament. At 73rd in the FedExCup standings, he's currently projected 51st with 18 holes to play. That would be good enough for him to advance to the BMW Championship.
Two eagles highlight Hoffman's wild DBC day 09-01-2013
Charley Hoffman
Charley Hoffman circled two eagles en route to a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the finale at 12-under 201. Hoffman's day was wild to say the least. Two eagles, five birdies and four bogeys only made room for seven pars. The first eagle was a hole out from a greenside bunker at the par-4 fourth. The second was a little more conventional, falling from 11'5" on the par-5 18th.
Davis fights for BMW berth at Deutsche Bank 09-01-2013
Brian Davis
Brian Davis submitted a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. His round was blemish-free, featuring five birdies and 13 pars. Known as an accurate driver, he split every one of TPC Boston's 14 fairways and converted 15 GIR. Entering the week at 80th in the FedExCup standings, this kind of effort is exactly what he needs if he hopes to earn a tee time at the BMW Championship next week.
Roberto Castro
Roberto Castro put up a mediocre 3-under-par 33-35=68 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is tied for fifth and 15-under 198. On a day where birdies were easy to come by, the Georgia Tech product found just four of them and squared one bogey at TPC Boston. He was closing in on the lead early in his round, with a blemish-free 3-under on his outward nine. The pace fell flat on the back, with seven pars giving way to a bogey on 17 and a birdie at the 18th. He is inside the top five in both putting average and GIR.
Stenson in familiar second place @ TPC Boston 09-01-2013
Henrik Stenson
Henrik Stenson signed for a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and sits alone in second at 17-under 196. Stenson's round featured six birdies to just one bogey. His 46 GIR (85.19 percent)lead the tournament. He's had his share of close calls this season, including three runner-up finishes and a third. The only things standing between him and his first win of 2013 are two strokes and a man named Sergio Garcia.
Garcia leads the Deutsche Bank by two strokes 09-01-2013
Sergio Garcia
Sergio Garcia spun a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and leads by two strokes over Henrik Stenson at 19-under 194 with 18 holes to play. The Spaniard took his time in getting off the ground at TPC Boston, rolling in just two birdies on the opening nine. He would heat up on the inward nine, picking off five birdies to just one bogey including a two-putt birdie on the par-5 18th. As we've come to expect, the ball-striking was the key to his success. He split 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 15 GIR. His last PGA TOUR win was at the 2012 Wyndham Championship, also featuring a Monday finish. Currently 55th in the FedExCup standings, he will jump inside the top five with a victory.
Kuchar fades in Deutsche Bank third round 09-01-2013
Matt Kuchar
Matt Kuchar posted a 2-under-par 36-33=69 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the final round at 12-under 201. Largely off the radar for much of the round, Kuchar rolled in a 22'4" eagle on the 18th to reach red figures for the first time all day. He opened with a pair of pars before suffering a double bogey at the par-3 third. He bounced back from that with birdies on four and seven, but then hopped on the par train for 10 holes until the aforementioned eagle at the 18th.
Dufner inside the top five at Deutsche Bank 09-01-2013
Jason Dufner
Jason Dufner turned in a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and reaches the 54-hole mark at 15-under 198. The PGA Champion was white hot early in his round, circling six birdies in 10 holes and needing just 11 putts to do so. Someone on the 11th tee box must have thrown water on him, as he would square a bogey and settle for seven pars the rest of the way. He missed a 7'7" opportunity for birdie on the 18th hole to end his day.
Mahan's irons guide him to a 66 at the DBC 09-01-2013
Hunter Mahan
Hunter Mahan signed for a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and enters the final round a 12-under 201. Mahan circled four birdies and an eagle, squaring just one bogey on his lap around TPC Boston. The eagle came at the final hole, dropping from 5'4" after a perfect approach from 233 yards. He landed 16 GIR for the second time this week, and has held the putting surface 43 times in 54 tries this week.
Furyk torches TPC Boston for an 8-under 63 09-01-2013
Jim Furyk
Jim Furyk set TPC Boston on fire with a bogey-free 8-under-par 30-33=63 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. He began his day on the 10th tee, but wasted no time in picking up five birdies on his first seven holes. He would slow his pace to just three more over the final 11 holes. He was nearly perfect tee to green, missing just one fairway and three GIR. He'll likely need a similar effort in the final round if he is to have a chance at winning, as he is 12-under 201 and barely inside the top 10.
Bogey-free 67 for K. Bradley at Deutsche Bank 09-01-2013
Keegan Bradley
Keegan Bradley settled for a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. On a day where birdies were flying, Bradley found just four of them but kept the ugly numbers off the card. He's now gone 37 holes without a bogey. He enters the final round in a logjam at 12-under 201.

Jason Day
Jason Day managed a 4-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship. Day traded five birdies for just one bogey at TPC Boston, picking up just shy of two strokes on the field with his flat stick. He began the week 16th in the FedExCup standings and his still hovering right around that number. He enters the finale barely inside the top 10 at 12-under 201.
Stricker joins Deutsche Bank clubhouse lead 09-01-2013
Steve Stricker
Steve Stricker put the finishing touches on a third-round 8-under-par 32-31=63 at the Deutsche Bank Championship when he rolled in an eagle on the par-5 18th to join Graham DeLaet's in the clubhouse lead at 16-under 197. Stricker's round was without a blemish and included six birdies and an eagle to 11 pars. He landed 16 GIR, rolling the rock to a 1.563 putting average and picking up over two strokes on the field with the flat stick. He began the week 28th in the FedExCup standings, meaning he is easily in the BMW Championship but needing a little spark to ensure a berth in the TOUR Championship.
Third-round 66 has Poulter contending at DBC 09-01-2013
Ian Poulter
Ian Poulter navigated TPC Boston in 5-under-par 32-34=66 in his third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the 54-hole mark at 13-under 200. Poulter circled seven birdies, giving back two bogeys on his Sunday stroll. The irons have been amazing for him all week, and today's round was no exception as he landed 15 GIR. That brings his tournament tally to 43, or 79.63 percent. He began his week 77th in the FedExCup standings with the top 70 at tournament's end advancing to Conway Farms for the BMW Championship. If he continues at this pace, that will be no problem.
Immelman wins the Hotel Fitness Championship 09-01-2013
Trevor Immelman
Trevor Immelman won the Hotel Fitness Championship with a 6-under-par 32-34=66 in the final round, besting Patrick Cantlay by a stroke at 20-under 268. This was only Immelman's second start on the Tour in his career, and by locking up his 2013-14 PGA TOUR card with this victory he won't be spending too much time on the junior circuit after the playoffs conclude. His round featured an eagle on the par-5 second hole to go with five birdies and just one bogey. He ranked inside the top 10 in both driving accuracy and GIR, so ball-striking was the key to his successful trip to Sycamore Hills Golf Club.
DeLaet blitzes TPC Boston for 9-under-par 62 09-01-2013
Hidezumi Shirakata
Graham DeLaet ripped apart TPC Boston for a 9-under-par 32-30=62 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is the clubhouse leader at 16-under 197. The Canadian opened his day with a bogey on the first hole, but more than bounced back with 10 birdies on his afternoon. He landed 14 GIR for the second consecutive round, gaining more than two strokes on the field with the flat stick to boot. The Presidents Cup team will be locked in later this week and he's making a solid case to slam the door on his inclusion for the Internationals. He's also just looking good for a berth in the TOUR Championship.
K. Stadler looking to lock up BMW tee time 09-01-2013
Kevin Stadler
Kevin Stadler fired a 7-under-par 33-31=64 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and is the first man in the house at 14-under 199. Stadler began the week ranked 75th in the FedExCup standings, so it was imperative that me make a move this week at TPC Boston if he had any hopes of advancing to the BMW Championship. With eight birdies to just one bogey on Sunday afternoon, he's put himself in a great position. His ball-striking was on point, missing just two fairways and three GIR.
Kirk makes big move in Deutsche Bank 3rd rd. 09-01-2013
Chris Kirk
Chris Kirk began his third round of the Deutsche Bank on the 10th hole, but after a 6-under-par 33-32=65 vaulting him to 11-under 202 that won't be the case in the final round. Kirk picked up five birdies and an eagle to just one bogey on his lap around TPC Boston, missing an opportunity for a final birdie at the par-4 ninth from 5'10" to end his round. Beginning his week 47th in the FedExCup standing, earning a tee time at the BMW Championship wasn't going to be an issue. Now his focus is on trying to move inside the top 30 to nab a spot at the TOUR Championship and reap all of the rewards that go with it.
Final round tee times bumped up at TPC Boston 09-01-2013
Marc Leishman
Marc Leishman lit up TPC Boston for a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-33=64 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and heads to the finale at 12-under 201.
The final round will get off to an early start, with play adjusted to go off the first and 10th tee beginning at 8:00 a.m. ET. Thunderstorms are expected to be a factor, and the early start could allow for play to conclude before the storms hit or build in a buffer for a mid-round delay. Leishman currently sits 13th in the International standings for the Presidents Cup, so a big finish could move him inside the top 10 or significantly increase his chances at a captain's pick later this week.
Bettencourt (back) WDs from the Hotel Fitness 09-01-2013
Matt Bettencourt
Matt Bettencourt withdrew during his second round of the Hotel Fitness Championship due to a back injury.
After opening with a 2-under-par 37-33=70 at Sycamore Hills Golf Club, he played seven holes of his second round in 6-over before walking off. This could be a costly malady for the one-time PGA TOUR winner. He earned his 2013-14 card by finishing 16th on the Tour money list, but he's playing for position in the opening reshuffle. If he's able, he'll try again at this week's Chiquita Classic.
Third round scratched, restarted @ TPC Boston 09-01-2013
Zach Johnson
The third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship restarted at 12:15 p.m. ET.
This is Kapalua all over again, albeit without the gusty winds. The third round began as originally scheduled at 7:35 a.m., but play was suspended at 8:46 a.m. Because it is incumbent on tournament officials to maintain as level a playing field as possible, scores from golfers that had begun their rounds were erased. This includes Zach Johnson, who was 2-over-par through four holes; he went out in the first twosome of the day. With the restart, the field of 100 was segregated into threesomes (there are two twosomes) and ushered out on split tees. Lift, clean and place is in effect. The weather forecast isn't favorable later today or tomorrow.
Bourdy runs the table; wins by two in Wales 09-01-2013
Gregory Bourdy
With birdies on his final three holes, Gr‚gory Bourdy recorded a two-stroke victory at the ISPS Handa Wales Open at 8-under-par 276. The Frenchman started the final round in the penultimate group at Celtic Manor three swings adrift of 54-hole leader Peter Uihlein in the final pairing. Bourdy captured an eagle-3 the second hole to lay the groundwork for what would go in the books as a 4-under 34-33=71. Uihlein exhausted his overnight margin by the fourth hole after one birdie and two bogeys. Bourdy grabbed a two-shot lead with a birdie at 11 against Uihlein's bogey at 10, but then bogeyed 13 and 14 to keep the American alive. After a par at 15, which Uihlein birdied, Bourdy closed birdie-birdie-birdie thanks to clutch putting. Uilhein parred 16 and picked up a birdie at 17 but suffered a bogey-6 at the last to cement his deficit. This marks the 31-year-old's fourth European Tour victory. It's his first since 2009.
