    Nicolai Hojgaard and PGA Tour rookie Sam Stevens are tied for the lead at the Corales Punta Cana Championship. Hojgaard had a bogey-free 66. The 22-year-old already has two European tour victories. Stevens twice had the lead late until bogeys on the 16th and 18th holes. He had a 68. They have a one-shot lead over a four players. That includes Thomas Detry. He had a 65.

      Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy had to play some of their best golf just to reach the semifinals of the Dell Match Play. Scheffler was 2 down in the morning match and 3 down to Jason Day in the afternoon. He rallied to win both as he tries to join Tiger Woods as the only back-to-back winners of Match Play. McIlroy made nine birdies in the morning and eight in the afternoon. He needed them all. 

        Matt Wallace is leading the Corales Puntacana Championship in the Dominican Republic. The Englishman birdied his last three holes for a 66. That gives him a one-shot lead over Sam Stevens and Wyndham Clark. They each shot 65. It's the second time Wallace has had a share of the 36-hole lead or better on the PGA Tour. The last time was at Quail Hollow two years ago. He tied for sixth. The big move belonged to 21-year-old Akshay Bhatia. He was 9 under for his round through 12 holes and had to settle for a 63. He was three back.

          Matt Kuchar has his name in the record book with Tiger Woods in the Dell Match Play. Equally pleasing with his 36th career match victory was that it puts him in the knockout stage of the weekend at Austin Country Club. Kuchar had a 7-and-6 win over Si Woo Kim to tie Woods' mark. It was a good week for top seeds. Scottie Scheffler and Rory McIlroy are among five of the top eight seeds to advance. That's the most top seeds to advance since the tournament switched to group play in 2015. Among those missing are Jon Rahm.

            Rory McIlroy is really digging the long ball at the Dell Match Play. He capped off his victory against Denny McCarthy by driving the 375-yard closing hole to just inside four feet for an eagle that was conceded. It was a brilliant display of power at Austin Country Club. McIlroy is leading a parade of undefeated top seeds into the final round of group play.

              Brice Garnett won his only PGA Tour title in the Dominican Republic and he's hopeful of a repeat this week. Garnett shared the first-round lead with Ben Martin in the Corales Puntacana Championship. They both played bogey-free for a 66. Garnett made birdie on all four of the par 5s. 

              The last edition of the Dell Match Play means this is Matt Kuchar's last chance to break a tournament record belonging to Tiger Woods. Kuchar has won 34 matches, two short of the record that Woods set on his way to three victories. The Match Play is the last of the World Golf Championships. They began in 1999 and have run their course with the tour moving to elevated events starting next year. 

              Danny Lee is a winner in his second event playing for Saudi-funded LIV Golf. Lee birdied his last two holes for a 69. That got him into a four-man playoff with Louis Oosthuizen, Brendan Steele and Carlos Ortiz. Lee missed a 5-foot birdie putt for the win on the first playoff hole. Playing the 18th hole again, he missed the green to the right. Even though he was 10 feet off the green, he used a putter and the ball rattled off the pin and disappeared for the winning birdie. It's his first win since 2015.

              Taylor Moore has shot 67 to win the Valspar Championship. He made key birdies on the 15th and 16th holes at Innisbrook. And he avoided the mistakes that cost Adam Schenk and Jordan Spieth. The victory sends the 29-year-old Moore to the Masters with his first PGA Tour victory. Schenk was tied for the lead when his drive landed next to a tree on the final hole, leading to a bogey. Spieth was tied for the lead until hitting his drive into the wa

              Marc Leishman has a two-shot lead over Sergio Garcia going into the third and final round of LIV Golf Tucson. Leishman had the ideal start at the Gallery Golf Club. He opened with an eagle and was 4 under for his round through eight holes. The Australian cooled, but he didn't let the round go south on him. One last birdie gave him a 66. Garcia had eight birdies in his round of 66. The Spaniard was just as excited that his Fireballs team had a one-shot lead in the team competition. Louis Oosthuizen was among four players three back.

              Adam Schenk never looked like he would be leading the Valspar Championship until his final putt. Schenk made a 5-foot birdie for a 70. That gives him a one-shot lead over Jordan Spieth and Tommy Fleetwood as he goes for his first PGA Tour win. Spieth looked to be in control for so much of the round at Innisbrook. But with five birdies and an eagle came plenty of mistakes. Spieth took his fifth bogey of the day on the 18th hole for a 69. Fleetwood was just the opposite. He had 16 pars and two birdies for a 69.

              Adam Schenk is leading the Valspar Championship and no one can accuse him of being rusty. Schenk is playing for the 10th consecutive week, a stretch that began in Honolulu with the Sony Open. His wife is expecting their first child in little more than a month, and the Indiana native is trying to get in as many tournaments as he can.

              Marc Leishman is the leader after the first of three rounds at LIV Golf Tucson. Leishman made a series of lengthy birdie putts for a 65 at The Gallery. The course in the high desert north of Tucson is where the Match Play Championship was held in 2007 and 2008. Joaquin Niemann, Louis Oosthuizen and David Puig were a shot behind.

              Ryan Brehm was having a solid round in the Valspar Championship. One swing made it a memorable round. Brehm made a hole-in-one on the 17th hole. That led to a 66 and gives Brehm a three-way share of the lead with Stephan Jaeger and Adam Schenk. Jordan Spieth is in the group one shot behind. Spieth only hit five fairways.

              Golf's governing bodies want the golf ball to go a little shorter for the biggest hitters. The U.S. Golf Association and Royal & Ancient Golf have released a proposal for a new test that would require different golf balls for elite competition.

              Scottie Scheffler is on another big run. That's how it was last year when he won four times in six starts and capped it off with the Masters. Now there seems to be a greater appreciation for what Scheffler is capable of doing. The 26-year-old from Dallas won The Players Championship by five shots. That's his second win in the last four starts. He nearly won at Bay Hill the week before. Scheffler is back to No. 1 in the world and his next two starts are tournaments he won last year.

              Scottie Scheffler is back to No. 1 in the world thanks to a masterful performance at The Players Championship. Scheffler ran off five straight birdies around the turn at the TPC Sawgrass. He extended his lead to six shots at one point. Scheffler left all the drama to everyone else. He closed with a 69 to become only the third winner at Sawgrass with all four rounds in the 60s.

              A long day at The Players Championship has ended with Masters champion Scottie Scheffler in the lead. Scheffler birdied his last hole and shot 65 to build a two-shot advantage over Min Woo Lee of Australia. Lee is the younger brother of U.S. Women's Open champion Minjee Lee. He had a 66 after a bogey on his final hole. It was a long day for Scheffler. Because of rain delays, he played 26 holes Saturday. It was an exciting day for Tom Hoge. He made the cut on the number and then set the TPC Sawgrass record at 62.

              Storms have interrupted The Players Championship. Christiaan Bezuidenhout and Adam Svensson share the lead at 8-under par. They are among half the field that returns Saturday morning to finish the second round. Chad Ramey had a three-shot lead when he put two balls in the water on the island-green 17th for a quintuple bogey. Max McGreevy shot 89 to tie the record for the highest score on the Stadium Course. Jon Rahm missed all the action. He withdrew before the round with a stomach bug. Scottie Scheffler was three back and has a shot at going back to No. 1.

              The TPC Sawgrass is one of the most unpredictable courses in golf. And it got a most unpredictable leaderboard after one round of The Players Championship. The leader is Chad Ramey, who had never seen the Stadium Course until this week. He shot a bogey-free 64 and leads by one over Collin Morikawa.
