Strong weekend scores of 62 and 64 gave Lucas Herbert a third-place finish at the International Series Macau on the Asian Tour on Sunday.

The Victorian only missed out on a playoff with David Puig, and eventual winner John Catlin by two shots, while Kiwi Ben Campbell finished T5.

Finishing at 21-under for the week, Herbert picked up US$126,000 ahead of a short trip home to Australia, while Maverick Antcliff also had another good payday after closing with a 62 to climb into a share of 10th place – his second top-10 in three weeks.

Antcliff sits in eighth place on the Asian Tour Order of Merit, two places behind the leading Australian, New Zealand Open runner-up Scott Hend.

Jason Day was the top Australasian at THE PLAYERS Championship, finishing in a tie for 35th as American Scottie Scheffler continued his season dominance with another win.

It was a somewhat disappointing finish for Day, who opened his week with a 5-under 67, but faded on the weekend at the famous TPC Sawgrass Stadium Course.

On the Epson Tour, New Zealand's Fiona Xu finished T15 at the IOA Golf Classic in Florida, while Cassie Porter finished T23.

West Australian Hayden Hopewell picked up a top-20 finish on the Challenge Tour in India.
