Stuart Appleby finished with three straight birdies and tied Shigeki Maruyama for the lead Saturday in the Sony Open at Honolulu, setting up a long final day in which just about everyone is still in the game. Because the opening round was washed out at Waialae, Sunday will feature a 36-hole final. Maruyama holed out from the bunker to the right of the par-three seventh late in his round and shot another five-under-par 65. Appleby had a strong finish for the second day in a row and shot 66. They were at 10-under 130. Mark Wilson (67)

Stuart Appleby hit golf's magic number Sunday, shooting a 59 to win the Greenbrier Classic at White Sulphur Springs, W.Va. Appleby's 11-under-par round put him at 22 under, giving him a one-stroke victory to end a four-year winless drought. Third-round leader Jeff Overton (67) narrowly missed a long birdie try on the par-three 18th that would have forced a playoff. Appleby is the fifth PGA Tour player to reach the milestone. The Australian's round came less than a month after Paul Goydos had a 59 at the John Deere Classic.

Sergio Garcia went ballistic Thursday after blasting out of a greenside bunker during a bogey-bogey-bogey stretch. He slammed his wedge into the bunker five times, then threw the club at his bag, leaving caddie Gary Matthews to clean up his mess. The former No. 2 player in the world has slumped since suffering a broken heart at the hands of Morgan-Leigh Norman — daughter of Greg — in the spring of 2009. "It hurt," he said. Garcia announced last weekend that he will take a two-month break after the PGA Championship, bypassing the FedEx Cup events and the Ryder Cup. "I need to miss the game a little bit," he said.

Stuart Appleby was back on top of the leaderboard at the Houston Open on Thursday with the same first-round score that propelled him to a six-shot victory last year. He wasn't as excited about his six-under-par 66 this time, because he knows he isn't playing as well as he was a year ago. Kevin Sutherland and rookie Johnson Wagner, who was born in Amarillo, also shot 66s to share the first-round lead.

Stuart Appleby didn't run out of birdies Wednesday -- he ran out of holes. Appleby birdied the last six holes for a 10-under 62 and a share of the lead with Steve Flesch after the first round of the PGA Tour's Las Vegas Invitational. Flesch, who like Appleby played the Southern Highlands course, birdied his first five holes. He finished with 11 birdies. Dan Forsman and Craig Barlow also shot 62s, but did it at the par-71 TPC at the Canyons course.

Stuart Appleby, without a top 10 since winning the first tournament of the year, birdied his first two holes and kept right on rolling Thursday to a seven-under-par 63 on the TPC at Las Colinas, giving him a one-shot lead over John Daly, Ernie Els and Brett Wetterich in the Byron Nelson Championship at Irving, Texas. Els showed not much has changed since winning by a career-high 13 shots two weeks ago in Shanghai, playing with Vijay Singh and without a bogey on the TPC course for a 64.

LA JOLLA -- His left knee could be hurting him, he might be playing his first tournament in two months and he may have started with four bogeys on his first nine holes, but at the midway point of the U.S. Open, there's only one player in front of Tiger Woods. Stuart Appleby's cross-country birdie putt at the 18th hole Friday at Torrey Pines was not only noteworthy for the ground it covered, about 45 feet, but also for the fact that it concluded a one-under-par round of 70 and turned out to be worth a one-shot lead over Woods, Rocco Mediate and Robert Karlsson.

If it's Kapalua, it must be Stuart Appleby. On another blustery Hawaiian day that severely tested the 28-man Mercedes Championships field of last year's PGA Tour winners, Appleby birdied three of his last six holes for a three-under-par 70 and a two-shot lead over U.S. Open champion Michael Campbell.
