It's been a great day bringing you all the action as golf lit up the Olympics, making its return after 112 years. See you tomorrow! 

...

That's it for today folks. Marcus Fraser takes the lead, followed by Graham De Laet and Henrik Stenson at second place and a whole host of golfers including Belgium’s Thomas Pieters, Gregory Bourdy of France, Alex Cejka of Germany, Justin Rose of Great Britain and Rafael Bello-Cabrera at third. SSP Chawrasia finished 27th, while Anirban Lahiri was 50th.

...

Birdies for Henrik Stenson and Rafael Bello-Cabrera to end the day's action! The latter will enter tomorrow in confident mood having finished with 3 birdies on the trot.

...

Justin Rose hits a birdie on the 18th, like a whole host of golfers have, to end the day in 3rd place at -4 under par.

...

Thongchai Jaidee, Henrik Stenson and Rafael Bello-Cabrera are on the 18th hole to complete the day's action.

...

The final 2 groups are still out there. Will we see any further changes in the leaderboard?

...

Superb from SSP Chawrasia! Birdies the 18th to end the day at even-par. Earlier in the day, Anirban had birdied the 18th too.

...

Justin Rose bogeys the 16th hole and is now at -3 under par. He will look to finish with a birdie to get back to -4.

...

Par for SSP on the 17th. One to go, 23 golfers have birdied the 18th hole. Can he finish with a birdie?

...

Not one to be kept down, Stenson responds with a birdie and gets back to -4 under par. 

...

Another par for SSP at the 16th. It would be great for him to end the day at even-par, he has two holes to go.

...

Germany's Alex Cejka is having an absolute party out there! He just followed up 2 bogeys with 2 birdies and is looking good at -3 under for the day.

...

Henrik Stenson drops a shot with his bogey on the 13th to go down to +3 over par while Justin Rose remains at +4 over among the 18 still playing the field.

...

SSP Chawrasia saves par at the 15th as well to stay at +1 over par. 3 holes to go for SSP, can he turn it around?

...

Sergio Garcia, who had a strong start in the front 9, bogeyed the 12th and 14th to stand at even-par.

...

There are still 24 golfers who are out there on the greens. It has been a long and enjoyable day of golf at Rio.

...

Rickie Fowler, on the other hand, is having a torrid time and is still languishing close to the bottom of the leaderboard at +4 over par after 13 holes.

...

Superb performance from Gregory Bourdy to end the day at -4 under par 67. The Frenchman had few great years between 2007 - 2009 where he won 3 European Tour events. 

...

SSP is having a torrid time on his back 9, having bogeyed 3 of his 5 holes. He recovers slightly by saving par on the 14th. 

...

13 proves to be unlucky for SSP as he bogeys another. This is not good, he is fizzling out after a hot start.

...

Henrik Stenson has come into Rio in good form and is looking really good. Currently at -4 under with 7 holes to play.

...

He does it! Anirban birdies the last hole to end the day at +3 over par. Good show of character from Anirban. It was destined for him to have a poor day after he bogeyed the 12th to stand at +5 over par, but birdies on the 15th and 18th helped him finish the day at 74. 

...

Anirban's 18th hole courtesy Anuj Khanna: Gets on the green while Martin Kaymer and Bubba hit the bunker, misses a good chance at eagle but still stands a chance to birdie to finish the day. 

...

SSP Chawrasia cannot capitalise on his birdie on the 11th as he bogeys the 12th. His rollercoaster day continues as he returns to even-par.

...

A score of -4 or -5 under par would see you somewhere close to the top of the leaderboard.
