Playing Monterey Peninsula CC, four-time past champion and World No. 41 Phil Mickelson smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the AT&T Pebble Beach Pro-Am to reach 9-under 134, up 27 places on the live leaderboard to T5, one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Troy Merritt. UPDATE: With play completed, Mickelson is T5, three short of 36-hole co-leaders Dustin Johnson and Beau Hossler.

The Californian is the leader in all-time earnings at the AT&T Pro-Am and is making his 22nd appearance. He owns nine previous top 10s with seven of those podiums, including four wins, most recently 2012. The 47-year-old, who finished in last place (65th) last year, arrived off a T5 at the WM Phoenix Open where he was a three-time champ. He opened this week on Spyglass Hill GC and was 2-over thru his first seven holes, but has now played his last 29 holes in blemish-free 11-under. Beginning off No. 10 tee on Day 2, the Hall of Famer carded six birdies on nine (of 13) fairways and 15 greens in regulation. He circled 10, 14-16, 3 and 6, posting 1.600 putts per GIR with 27 total putts.

Tommy Fleetwood has finished sixth and tied third in his two appearances at the Hong Kong Open in Fanling and will bid to hit the ground running again when the new Race to Dubai season gets underway there on Thursday.

Fleetwood couldn't quite do enough to defend his European No. 1 crown in Dubai last week but finishing first and third in the last two editions of the RTD shows the giant strides he's made in the last two campaigns. His sixth place in Hong Kong at the end of 2016 was the first step on that road and the Englishman told europeantour.com: "The course, I feel the last two years, it's set up nicely for me. It is quite a big patience game because you feel like there's a lot of chances, but the course actually doesn't give you that much in the end. Especially if the wind is swirling, it makes it very difficult. But in general, ball striking is pretty key. You can't really play this golf course from off the fairways. You have to be on the fairway to score, and that's obviously one of my strengths." Fleetwood ended the previous campaign with a run of 2-9-7-7-16.

Sergio Garcia gives the Honma Hong Kong Open a second crack this week at Hong Kong GC.

The Spaniard came here for the first time last year and enjoyed the experience despite nothing better than T19. "It's great," he said this week, "The golf course is amazing, a really strong test for us. We’re excited to be back here and hopefully give ourselves a chance. It's the kind of golf course that I enjoy playing, so we'll see what we can do." It really ought to be his type of track because he’s a multiple winner at Valderrama and there are many players who have won both there and here in Fanling (for example: Bernhard Langer, Colin Montgomerie, Freddie Jacobson, Ian Poulter, Justin Rose). He’s in a great trot of form: T7-1-2-T9. But motivation is surely the biggest question: Will his edge be dulled or can he ride the wave of fun that comes with a less pressured event, the big lights/big city, and lots of invite goodies?

Playing out of the final threesome, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 107 Cameron Champ backed up with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the final round of The RSM Classic to wrap his second appearance (CUT/2018) on 16-under 266, falling four places to solo 6th, three swings shy of a two-man playoff involving Patrick Rodgers and playing competitor and eventual champ Charles Howell III.

It's been quite a start for the 23-year-old as he bags his second straight top 10 of the season and third in his last four starts. He's now 5-for-5 with four top 25s and three top 10s, with a worst of T28 at the Shriners. After opening with 68-63-66, the San Antonio resident began T2, one back of leader Howell III. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, he gained 0.432 strokes off-the-tee but lost 0.799 around-the-green. The Texas A&M product went out in 1-under (2 birdies, 1 bogey), now T1 with Webb Simpson, but came home in level-par, trading a 2-putt birdie-4 at 15 with bogey-4 at 17 . He posted 1.857 putts per GIR and -2.016 SG: Putting, missing two scoring tries from inside of nine feet. For the week, Champ totaled one eagle and 23 birdies versus seven bogeys and one double.

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, World No. 59 Luke List played his final four holes in 4-under en route to a 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of The RSM Classic to conclude on 17-under 265, up two spots to T4, two swings short of a two-man playoff involving Patrick Rodgers and overnight leader and eventual champ Charles Howell III.

This was the Vanderbilt alum's third RSM, second cash and second top 25, bettering a T13 on last visit in 2017. He improves to 2-for-3 on the season, checking in off a missed cut at last week's Mayakoba and matching a T4 at the Safeway six weeks ago. After opening with 69-68-63, the 33-year-old began in solo 6th, four adrift, and hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 2.082 strokes off-the-tee and 2.542 tee-to-green. He was sleepwalking on 1-under thru 14 holes (1 bogey, 2 birdies), but finished with eagle-3 at 15 from 18'0" and back-to-back circles at 17 and 18. The California resident registered 1.667 putts per GIR and -0.696 SG: Putting, and departs with one eagle and 21 birdies against six bogeys.
Nov 18 - 5:43 PM

Playing out of the third-to-last threesome and beginning five shots back, World No. 172 Patrick Rodgers painted a day-low, bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-30=62 in the final round of The RSM Classic to match overnight leader Charles Howell III on 19-under 263, and then in his first sudden-death playoff appearance, lost to Howell III's birdie on the second playing of the par-4 18th.

The Stanford product, who was vying for his first PGA TOUR title in 117 events (114 pro), settles for his third runner-up, first since the 2017 John Deere. This was his fourth straight RSM, third cash and second top 10 (T10/2017). The 26-year-old improves to 4-for-5 on the season with three top 25s, bettering a T14 three starts ago at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms. After opening with 70-70, he made the cut on the number before a bogey-free, career-low 61 in R3, the low lap of the week. The Indiana native hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 17 greens in regulation, gaining 0.785 strokes approaching and 1.112 tee-to-green. He rang up eight birdies, two from between 21 and 46 feet, adding an 85'5" bomb for birdie-2 at 12. Rodgers recorded 1.588 putts per GIR and 3.734 SG: Putting and ends the week No. 1 in birdies with 26 versus five bogeys and one double.

Playing out of the final threesome, overnight leader and World No. 84 Charles Howell III enjoyed a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in the final round of The RSM Classic to match Patrick Rodgers (62) on 19-under 263 and then defeated him with birdie from 15'2" on the second playing of the par-4 18th in sudden death, improving his record to 2-4 in extra time and 1-for-6 when leading/co-leading after 54 holes.

The 39-year-old, a pre-tourney 40/1 outright, bags his third PGA TOUR title in 529 events (527 pro), first since the 2007 Nissan Open 333 starts and 4,291 days ago, and led/co-led after every round. This was his ninth straight RSM -- he's played in all of them -- and records his fifth top 25 and fourth top 10, first since T9 in 2016 three tries ago. After opening with 64-64-68, the Augusta, Georgia, native led by one over two players and hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting a -0.289 SG: Tee-to-Green and 0.135 SG: Putting. He opened horribly with bogey at 1 and double bogey-6 at 2, but then played his final 16 holes in blemish-free 6-under, highlighted by three straight circles at 15-17. For the week, the Oklahoma State product tallied 25 birdies versus four bogeys and one double, and among other goodies, earns a return trip to the 2019 Masters, his first since 2012.
Nov 18 - 5:12 PM

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, World No. 295 Ryan Blaum fashioned a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the final round of The RSM Classic to wrap on 17-under 265, good for a career-best T4, two strokes short of a two-man playoff involving overnight leader Charles Howell III and Patrick Rodgers.

This was the Duke alum's third RSM and second cash, brushing aside a T71/MDF two tries ago in 2017. It's his fifth top 10 in 71 events and betters a pair of T6s, most recently at the 2018 Byron Nelson. The 35-year-old improves to 4-for-5 on the season with two top 25s, joining a T20 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms three starts ago. He signed for rounds of 69-65-65-66 and tallied 24 birdies versus seven bogeys. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, the Floridian camouflaged a lone bogey with five birdies, posting a -0.079 SG: Tee-to-Green and 0.925 SG: Putting.
Nov 18 - 4:46 PM

Playing out of the penultimate threesome, World No. 20 Webb Simpson, a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright, navigated a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the final round of The RSM Classic to finish up on 18-under 264, up one place to solo 3rd, one swing short of a two-man playoff involving overnight leader Charles Howell III and Patrick Rodgers.

The Wake Forest alum, who was the top-ranked OWGRer in the field, improves to 2-for-2 on the season with two top 25s, arriving off a T15 at the Shriners two weeks ago. He records his 19th top-3 finish in 264 events, first since T2 at the Wyndham six starts ago, and his third top 10 in his last four starts dating to last season. The 33-year-old was playing his seventh RSM and notches his third top 10, first since T7 in 2014. He signed for rounds of 68-68-63-65 and totaled one eagle and 19 birdies against three bogeys. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, he went out in bogey-free 32 (3 birdies), T1 at that point with Cameron Champ, and came home in 33 (3 birdies, 1 bogey). The North Carolinian gained strokes off-the-tee and around-the-green but lost on approach. He recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.401 SG: Putting.
Nov 18 - 4:31 PM

Making his tournament debut, World No. 75 Peter Uihlein tossed up a bogey-free, 7-under-par 30-33=63 in the final round of The RSM Classic to wrap on 15-under 267, up 17 places to T5 with play still in progress. UPDATE: With play completed, Uihlein finished T7.

The Oklahoma State product, who led or co-led the Shriners two weeks ago after each of the first three rounds before cratering to T23, rebounds in his next start. He improves to 4-for-5 on the season with two top 25s and should hold on for his first top 10, which would be his first since solo 5th at the Memorial back in June. The 29-year-old, playing his sophomore season, posted rounds of 66-71-67-63, rounds 2 and 4 blemish-free, and totaled 18 birdies against three bogeys. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he lost 0.542 strokes approaching but gained 1.368 off-the-tee and 2.238 around-the-green. The 2010 US Amateur champ carded seven birdies, including six straight at holes 5-10, posting 1.538 putts per GIR and 1.336 SG: Putting. This is his second 63 of the season (Shriners/R1) and one shy of his career low.

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.
