Chappell leads by one stroke after 3 rounds of Texas Open

Chappell leads by one stroke after 3 rounds of Texas Open

Smith, though, would impressively play his last five holes in 1 under par to keep his hopes of a first PGA Tour title well and truly alive as he heads into tomorrow's final round just two behind Chappell.

"Obviously, the golf course hit me in the chin real hard early and I just couldn't find a rhythm, couldn't get a rhythm", Chappell explained. "I feel like I have a base to kind of jump off from with my career moving forward.I mentioned it a few times, that I have a runner-up here and definitely had me motivated to get a win here".

Koepka, a member of the U.S.

Koepka, a member of the U.S. Ryder Cup team past year, was looking for his second PGA Tour win.

Koepka had a four-foot putt to tie Chappell for the lead on the par-5 14th but missed and another on the par-3 16th that hung on the lip of the hole and would not fall. Cauley bogeyed the first hole, and his co-leader Finau parred until bogey at No. 7 and a double bogey on the next hole after he was chipping for birdie from right in front of the green. He had just one birdie in the entire round, on par-3 16th.

Beginning the day on two under par McDowell reached the turn on three under thanks to birdies on the 14th and 18th - his fifth and ninth holes.

He put the club back in his bag and laid up to create a 90-wedge approach. He tapped in to gain a stroke, and he made good two holes later with a 12-foot birdie.

Hawaii lawmakers criticize Sessions' island judge remarks
Mr Sessions said he was "amazed" Hawaii had so much power, and expected the order to be overturned. Derrick Watson is actually a federal judge who happens to serve on a district court in Hawaii.

Chappell had nearly the same distance for his approach on 18, and he landed it past the hole to set up the winning putt.

At Ridgedale, Missouri, Carlos Franco and Vijay Singh teamed to shoot a course-record 12-under par to rally from seven shots behind and win the PGA Tour Champions' Bass Pro Shops Legends of Golf at Big Cedar Lodge.

Finau closed with birdies on four of five holes coming to the 17th.

Chappell has never won on the PGA Tour but has six second-place finishes, including this event in 2011. Chappell finished eighth in the FedExCup last season and tied for second in the Tour Championship.

Austrian Bernd Wiesberger beat England's Tommy Fleetwood in a playoff on Sunday to win the Shenzhen International in China.

Wise, who was two shots off the lead Friday, fired a 4-over 76 Saturday and is tied for 28th place at 146. "If I can manage and hit good shots, I'll be fine". His eight-foot birdie putt on 18 finally sealed it with a final round of 68.
