John Mallinger spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-32=65 in his second round of the Justin Timberlake Shriners Hospitals for Children Open.

Mallinger hasn't cashed since a solo fourth at the Reno-Tahoe Open, but he's 98th on the money list and set for a promotion in status in 2013. (He's in the graduate reshuffle category this year.) At TPC Summerlin today, he hit 16 greens and poured in four birdies, the longest of which from just 12 feet at the sixth hole. He then capped his round with an eagle-3 from just 5'4" at the ninth hole before signing his card with a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 7-under 135.

World No. 544 Tiger Woods fashioned a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of The Honda Classic for a 54-hole total of even-par 210, up three spots on the live leaderboard to T11, four shy of clubhouse leader Alex Noren and seven back of the leader on the course Jamie Lovemark.

After kicking off with 70-71, the 42-year-old began T14 on 1-over, four short of co-leaders Lovemark and Luke List. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.599 strokes approaching-the-green but losing 0.859 around-the-green. The Jupiter, Florida, resident was bogey-free 2-under thru 14 holes, circling 3s at 8 and 13 (from 14'6"), before giving back two with bogey-4s at 15 and 17 (failed scrambles). He ended with an up-and-down birdie-4 at 18 to record his first round in the 60s since a R3 68 at the 2015 Wyndham, although that was just four official starts ago. The 79-time TOUR winner registered 1.769 putts per GIR and 0.960 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

First-round co-leader and World No. 16 Alex Noren twirled a 5-under-par 32-33=65 on Moving Day at The Honda Classic to post 4-under 206, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to solo 5th and good for the low round of the week thus far and the early 54-hole clubhouse lead.

After opening in 66-75, the Oklahoma State alum began T14 on 1-over, four short of 36-hole co-leaders Luke List and Jamie Lovemark. He striped 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, gaining 1.565 strokes approaching-the-green and 0.605 around-the-green. The 35-year-old squared two bogey-5s at 10 and 16 (3-putt from 57'9"), outpaced by five birdies at 2, 7, 8, 13 and 14, capping with a walk-off eagle-3 at 18 from 4'3", just the second eagle of the week at 18. His birdie split included three from between 13 and 18'6", posting 1.615 putts per GIR and 3.239 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 355 Tom Lovelady smoothed a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-34=67 on Moving Day at The Honda Classic, vaulting 33 places on the live leaderboard to T26 on 2-over 212.

The Jupiter, Florida, resident logs just the third blemish-free round of the week thus far. He opened with 75-70, one of 18 players to make the cut on the number, and is now bogey-free 5-under for his last 26 holes. Additionally, the 24-year-old was 7-over thru his first nine holes in Round 1, so it's been quite a turnaround. On Saturday, he landed seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.729 strokes off-the-tee and 0.885 around-the-green. The Alabama alum carded three birdie-3s at holes 6, 8 and 10, two from between 10 and 28 feet, posting 1.786 putts per GIR and 1.777 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. He entered the week 4-for-10 on the season with one top 25 (T18, Sanderson Farms).

Oliver Fisher thrashed a superb 7-under-par 33-32=65 to claim a share of the 54-hole lead alongside Eddie Pepperell on 16-under 200 in the third round of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC.

The 29-year-old Englishman scorched his way to the top of the leaderboard with a blistering finish that gives him a Sunday shot at a second European Tour title (his first was the 2011 Czech Masters). His front nine included three birdies at 3, 5 and 8. He added a fourth at 11 from 12’0" but bogey followed at the 12th. The best was yet to come as he closed with four par breakers in a row at 15, 16, 17 and 18. At the par-3 17th he converted from 10’0" before draining from twice that distance on the final green. Ranked 174th on the Race to Dubai he needed a good week to kickstart his season. Victory would revitalise his career. He and Pepperell lead by two from Sean Crocker who is himself two clear of five players on 14-under. "The most important thing for tomorrow is to go out and enjoy it," he said. "I'm good friends with Eddie so hopefully we'll have a bit of fun out there."

Defending champion and World No. 7 Rickie Fowler stumbled to a 6-over-par 36-40=76 in the second round of The Honda Classic and at 7-over 71-76=147, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 76 players from a field of 144 made the cut of 5-over 145, 18, T59 on the number. Fowler, a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright, misses his second cut of the season in five events, second in his last three starts (Farmers). After missing his first two cuts at the Honda in 2010 and 2011, he had cashed in six straight, and today's 76 matched his worst round at PGA National (2011/R1). The Jupiter, Florida, resident is in the published field at next week's WGC-Mexico. He totaled 16 (of 28) fairways and 21 greens in regulation, overshadowing four birdies with nine bogeys and a double, and ranked 125th in SG: Putting (-2.903). Other notable early exits include: 146- Patrick Reed; Tyrrell Hatton .. 147- Ryan Palmer; Graeme McDowell; Brandt Snedeker .. 148- Billy Horschel; Charles Howell III .. 149- Russell Knox; Kevin Kisner .. 152- Chesson Hadley; Patton Kizzire.

Jamie Lovemark soared up the leaderboard with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 during round two of The Honda Classic, joining Luke List with a share of the 36-hole lead on 3-under 137, his first career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR.

The Jupiter, Florida resident is one of the longest hitters on TOUR but he's taking the recommended route here at PGA National, opting for less-than-driver quite frequently. Today, he blasted just one drive over 285 yards. The lack of drivers has yielded more fairways, splitting 11 (of 14) today en route to 12 greens in regulation. That was good for +1.575 strokes approaching-the-green (+3.148 SG:APP in R1). Lovemark does not appear fazed by these difficult winds which is a good sign for the weekend as the forecast doesn't change much over the next two days. Joining Luke List as 36-hole co-leaders, this will be Lovemark's first career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR.

Tiger Woods moved up seven spots on the live leaderboard after recording a 1-over-par 34-37=71 during round two of The Honda Classic, arriving at the midpoint on 1-over 141 which places him in a share of 14th place, just four strokes off the leader Luke List.

Woods showed a lot of promise in round one and it was more of the same today. He traded two birdies with one bogey over the first 10 holes. He was staring down a bogey at the par-4 11th but showcased his signature fist pump after sinking a clutch 12'8" par-saver. The 42-year-old was sitting inside the top 10 at that point but The Bear Trap won the battle with Woods today. Stepping on the 15th tee box he rinsed his tee ball which led to a double-bogey 5. On the following hole, he got too aggressive on his par putt and swallowed a bogey. In typical Tiger fashion, he bounced back nicely at the following hole, stiffing his tee ball to 12 feet before rolling it in for a birdie. While his off-the-tee game is still a bit rusty he is gaining 5.153 strokes from fairway to flag (approach, around-the-green, and putting). This is a tremendous start for Woods but he can't afford to let his foot off the gas because this week's course can sneak up and bite you quickly.

Battling blustery conditions, Luke List won the battle with PGA National's Champion Course during round two of The Honda Classic, sprinting toward a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to reach 3-under 137 on the week, good for the early clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, List co-leads with Jamie Lovemark and his 66 was the low round of the day.

Going off in a twosome alongside Thomas Pieters, the duo was able to race their way around PGA National and play much of the course before the heavy winds arrived. Other than a good tee time, List racked up this score with strong ball-striking, landing 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.804 strokes approaching-the-green. That included a 146-yard approach that landed inside two feet, a 205-yard tee shot that landed inside five feet, and a 279-yard approach that landed inside six feet. If this lead holds then it will go in the books as his third career 36-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR, with the latest coming this fall at THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. He went on to finish T5 in that event. With the course currently playing 3.33 strokes over-par, this should easily beat the field average by more than seven shots by day's end. One of the strongest rounds from anyone this year.

Julia Suri fired an impressive bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 in round two of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters but his 36-hole total of 3-under 141 was a shot outside the cut line.

The American had much work to do after his opening 74 at Doha GC and nearly played himself into the weekend after a round featuring five birdies and 13 pars. Four of those came on his opening nine, meaning he needed another two coming home but Suri could only find one more and four closing pars meant the axe fell. Make a mental note for future starts, though, that he can score well on this course. Others to miss the cut of 4-under 140 included: 141- Jordan Smith, Shubhankar Sharma, Matthew Southgate ... 142- Thorbjorn Olesen, Richie Ramsay ... 143- Jeunghun Wang (defending champion).
Feb 23 - 9:44 AM

With a trio of closing birdies, Adrian Otaegui completed a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in round two of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, his halfway total of 11-under 133 giving him the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Otaegui ended the day as solo leader. He was also 36-hole leader at last year's Open de France, eventually finishing T7.

That beats the previous mark of 10-under and, with the day coming to a close, the Spaniard has a one-shot advantage over Erik Van Rooyen, Eddie Pepperell and Gregory Havret. Building on his opening 67, Otaegui started out with a birdie at Doha GC's opening hole and banked another red number at the 7th. The World No. 148 opened his back nine with circles at 10 and 11 before dropping his first and only shot of the week so far at the par-3 13th. That left him at 8-under but he stormed to the top of the leaderboard with gains at 16, 17 and 18. The 25-year-old has disappointing course form of MC-68-MC but was T5 after 54 holes of last week's Oman Open, eventually finishing T12, so had some confidence coming in.
Feb 23 - 8:22 AM

Sean Crocker made eagle at two of his final three holes to give what appeared to be a modest second round at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters a dramatic late lift, the 4-under-par 37-31=68 ensuring him the clubhouse lead of 9-under 135. UPDATE: Crocker finished R2 in T6, two shots behind solo leader Adrian Otaegui.

Wow! What a finish. The American carded a bogey-free 67 on day one at Doha GC and set out with a birdie today. All looked good until he lost his way with bogeys at 6, 7 and 12 against just a single red number at 10. On the 14th tee, he sat over par for the day but a birdie there lit the fire and then he took just two blows on the short 281-yard par-4 16th and followed it with a walk-off eagle at the 539-yard closer. The 21-year-old is turning heads on the European Tour this year after two top sevens and a T16 from his six starts on this year's Race to Dubai. He has no official status on the European Tour and played his first four events of the season on invites.
