Matt Every posts dominating first-round score at Wyndham Championship

The Swede reeled off three consecutive birdies from the 15th hole to take the lead before parring the demanding last, sinking his winning putt from inside three feet to edge young American Ollie Schniederjans at Sedgefield Country Club.

Na had six birdies and a bogey in his round of 65, while Schniederjans recovered from a bogey on the third with six birdies, only to drop another shot on the 16th to join the chasing pack. He birdied No. 13 before three straight birdies on 15, 16 and 17, which set the stage for his final par putt to end his dramatic charge into the clubhouse for the win.

Schniederjans, 24, did his best to make plenty of noise in the group ahead of Stenson.

Padraig Harrington, a three-time major victor, endured a torrid third round of six-over 76 which sent him tumbling down the leaderboard to level par for the tournament through 54 holes.

After making just two cuts from 27 events and earning only $US24,650, two-time tour victor Bowditch's tie for 64th at Wyndham left him well outside the top-200 who make the Web finals. The solo second is the best finish of his career, and fifth inside the top 10. Webb Simpson was 18 under after a 67.

The purse for the 2017 Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club in Greensboro, North Carolina is $5.8 million.

"Got to keep producing chances", said Stenson, who is ranked ninth in the world. Ryan Armour, a former Walsh Jesuit and Ohio State standout from Silver Lake, tied for fourth with Rory Sabbatini and Kevin Na.

Lowry needed a big week at the Wyndham Championship to move into the top 125 golfers on the standings and the Offaly man went mightily close thanks to a tied seventh-place finish in North Carolina. 17 and 18 and almost produced an eagle on the final hole, but the ball rolled past the cup on his shot from the fairway. It was a valiant effort, but it won't be enough for Armour to earn a spot in the FedEx Cup Playoffs. That's a four-tournament series involving the top 75 finishers from the Tour season and those finishing from 126 to 200 on the PGA Tour.

Siem was cruising in the final, three up at the turn and two up with five holes to play, but Otaegui produced an astonishing fightback to win 2&1.

And Martin Flores, who started at No. 139, jumped to No. 118 and made the playoffs for the first time since 2014 after a 63 highlighted by a hole-in-one on the par-3 16th.
