The Puerto Rico Open offers a chance for lesser lights on the PGA Tour to contend while top-ranked talent plays at Austin, Texas, in the World Golf Championships Match-Play tournament.

It was Points' third PGA Tour win and his first since the 2013 Houston Open.

Percy has played solidly since regaining his PGA Tour playing rights through the Web.Com Tour finals a year ago, making seven of nine cuts in the 2016/17 season but, apart from a top-10 finish at the Pebble Beach Pro-Am, he has yet to pick up the big finish he needs to secure his position on the PGA Tour. "I played pretty okay in the first couple of rounds and probably could have been better".

Wesley Bryan, who needed a victory for any hope of moving into the top 50 and getting into the Masters, shot 73 to fall out of contention.

Johnson faces Hideto Tanihara in the semifinals.

Stroud simply wants a victory.

There were no such problems for "Beef" who will now hope to push on over the weekend and finally make his mark across the Atlantic after missing two cuts and only managing a share of 68th at the Phoenix Open to date. "But today I hit the ball nice and it was a good result". Campos has as much pride in his local event as anyone on the PGA Tour.

American Chris Stroud also did not drop a shot in his 67 to set the pace on 15 under, a shot ahead of compatriots DA Points and Bill Lunde.

Sam Saunders, the grandson of Arnold Palmer, shot 67 and was five behind.
