Trio of 65s lead at Colonial

Derek Fathauer, J.T. Poston and Kelly Craft all finished tied atop the leaderboard after shooting 5-under 65s on Thursday, while three more players are within a stroke of the leaders and 20 players find themselves within three strokes.

So, how about a plaid jacket on Sunday?

"To see them win in the fashion they did, it was incredible", said Rahm, who practised with that team while in school.

Day misses out in sudden-death playoff
The Australian was edged in a play-off by Billy Horschel on Sunday, the result marking just his second top-10 finish of the year. Hahn, down by two strokes with just the final hole to go, took dead aim with a wedge and almost pulled off the unthinkable.

VIRGINIA WATER, England - Johan Carlsson shot a 6-under 66 on Thursday to take the first-round lead in the BMW PGA Championship, the European Tour's flagship event at Wentworth Club's revamped West Course. "So it would be awesome to be part of that group". Spieth is one of the best players in the world but hadn't won a pro tournament in his home state until a year ago at Colonial when he finished at 17-under 263, three shots ahead of fellow American Harris English. "Hopefully I can overcome that and play a good couple rounds and get there". You know how players always use the saying "It fits my eye"? He finished T44th in his first appearance here, and struggled to a T57 the next year, still making the cut nonetheless. He was impressed with Rahm's ability to cut the doglegs with his powerful driver.

Jordan Spieth hasn't been terribly reliable lately, but he has a great history at this course. Two things: Steady erosions in both his iron play and his putting. I putted it nice, too. "It's a good mix".

While Spieth will try to join Ben Hogan as the only players to win consecutive years at Colonial, two-time champion Phil Mickelson (2000, 2008) is back for the first time since missing the cut in 2010. He finished with three straight birdies to end the week three clear of Harris English. Those who can shape their shots could go low this week. He is experimenting with a smaller square grip on his putter. Well, I guess we should say he has not missed a two-round cut as he was purged after the third round of The Players Championship a few weeks ago following a ghastly 82 on Saturday at TPC Sawgrass. "I got up early at 5 a.m. and went through my stretching routine and stuff and then heard about the delay, so sat around for an hour and a half, got all stiff again, so that part didn't help".

Colorado man to be freed early now in immigration custody
As The Colorado Independent has previously reported, sheriffs in all 64 of Colorado's counties agree not to hold inmates for ICE. Under a 1984 agreement, Cuba agreed to take back 2,746 of their citizens who came to the United States as part of the boat lift.

QUOTABLE: "Before high school".

After switching putters last weekend, he'll return to the old putter this weekend. "Just cleaning out my downstairs room and just brought it out".

Kraft, runner-up at Pebble Beach this year, had five birdies without a bogey, his 40-footer at 16 giving him a share of the lead.

Turkey protests over 'aggression' against bodyguards in US
This summon is the latest development of the incident between protesters and Turkish security personnel during Erdogan's visit. Turkey and the USA are now at odds over the White House's recent decision to arm a Kurdish rebel group in Syria.

Finau will need a good week on the greens - his stats this year are very bad - but consecutive 65s at the Byron Nelson were a welcome shot in the arm on that front as he ended the week 38th in Putts Per GIR and steadily improved over four rounds in Strokes Gained: Putting. It was his best score of his nine Colonial rounds.
