"Probably the best I've felt all year, to be honest", Vegas said.

Andrew Landry exhausted in sweltering weather but clung to a share of the lead after the third round at the John Deere Classic in Silvis, Illinois on Saturday.

"Everybody's so good out here, you have to keep making birdies and keep making birdies", Henley said.

This is the Johannesburg, South Africa-native's first PGA Tour championship.

His first of the day came after a sublime shot from the bunker on the 1st left with him with a tap-in for birdie.

Vegas, who last won on tour in the 2017 Canadian Open, had a 13-under 129 total at TPC Deere Run. I'll jump on that plane over to the Open Championship and hopefully be calm when I get there.

Third-round co-leader Andrew Landry shot a 69 that included a birdie at No. 18 to finish alone in third at 18 under.

Frittelli, who made the winning putt for the University of Texas in the 2012 NCAA Tournament, became the second player from that Longhorns team to win at TPC Deere Run.

Rookie Collin Morikawa (66), the runner-up last week in Minnesota, and Chris Stroud (67) followed at 17 under.

The flood situation in Assam worsened on Sunday with the death toll rising to 11 and affecting almost 26.5 lakh people. In Mumbai, a building collapsed in a cramped neighbourhood, killing seven people following heavy rains in the city.

Henley made 10 birdies and closed with a 30 on the back nine en route to the lowest final-round score in John Deere Classic history. He again caught momentum with birdies on 14th, 17th and 18th and finished at 68.

Six shots ahead of Thompson after the birdie run, Kim played the final seven holes in even par, offsetting a birdie on 15 with a bogey on 16.

Haas, trying to become the oldest victor in tour history, closed with a 67.

Kupcho earned a spot in the Women's British Open along with Joh, Strom, Yoktuan, and Mariajo Uribe.

Scott Parel had a 73 to tie for fourth with Kent Jones (71) at 2 under.

Stacy Lewis was third at 16 under after a 66.

European - Bernd Wiesberger beat Benjamin Hebert on the third playoff hole at the Scottish Open in North Berwick, Scotland, for his sixth European Tour title. Glover holed out at the par-5 10th on his approach from 255 yards with a 3-iron for the albatross, putting him in the hunt for his first PGA victory since 2011.

PGA: In Sylvania, Ohio, Sei Young Kim shot a 7-under 64 to take a one-stroke lead over U.S. Women's Open champion Jeongeun Lee6 in the Marathon Classic.
