Ben Crane was removed from the published field of this week's Frys.com Open due to a recurring back injury.

Crane was scheduled to go off the first tee at 7:50 a.m. PT. He last competed in the BMW Championship, but he also participated in Wednesday's Pro-Am. This leaves his ability to defend at next week's McGladrey Classic in doubt.

Alexander Levy is putting up a strong defense of his Porsche European Open title at new venue the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg; he was 3-under-par through 15 holes of his second round when darkness called a halt to play, 8-under for the week and one swing behind the clubhouse leader Ashley Chesters.

Earlier in the day there had been a delay of just under four hours at 12:59, initially for heavy rain and later because of the threat of thunder and lightning. When play resumed it was always likely that the late starters would fail to complete their second laps. They will resume at 08:00 local time. Levy will have the opportunity to grab the halfway lead when he returns to the course with two of his remaining three holes par-5s. The day had started with a birdie-bogey exchange at 1 and 2 then for the second day running he made birdie at 7, 8 and 9. There were no more gains until he dropped a shot at 13 but he regained it shortly before the horn blew (at 15).

Sponsor invite and World No. 442 Ryan Ruffels authored a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open for a 36-hole tally of 10-under 134, up 14 places on the live leaderboard to T3, two shy of clubhouse leader Martin Flores.

This is the Aussie's second RBC after T87/MDF in 2015 as an amateur. It's his 14th career TOUR start, sixth this season, all on sponsor exemptions, and can have a max of seven sponsor invites. The 19-year-old has cashed two times, a T29 teamed with Kyle Stanley at the Zurich, and a T56 at the Arnold Palmer. He also has two runner-ups in five events on the PGA TOUR Latinoamerica, and has six total top 10s in his last 11 events on the circuit, five of those top 5s. The Orlando native opened in Canada with a six-birdie one-bogey 67 and duplicated that output in R2 on six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation. He posted 1.384 SG: Tee-to-Green and 2.846 SG: Putting, needing just 25 total putts.

Martin Flores twirled a 6-under-par 33-33=66 during round two of the RBC Canadian Open, staking his early claim as the clubhouse leader with a two-day tally of 12-under 134.

The Texan split 11 (of 14) fairways today but parlayed that into just 12 greens in regulation. Instead, he leaned heavily on the flat stick, most notably a 19'3" eagle splash at the par-5 second and a 24'3" birdie bomb at the par-4 17th. The eagle was his second of the week, both coming at the par-5 second. At the time he signed his card he ranked T3 in strokes gained off-the-tee and 18th in strokes gained putting for the week. Flores fans have likely noticed him trending well lately, as he found himself T11 after R2 of the John Deere Classic and sat T6 after R2 at last week's Barbasol Championship. If this lead holds, it will be his second career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR, with the other coming at the 2014 Wells Fargo Championship, an event he finished solo third by week's end.

First-round co-leader and World No. 929 Matt Every crafted a 4-under-par 31-37=68 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 11-under 133, down one spot to solo 2nd but good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The 33-year-old found eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 0.749 SG: Approach-the-Green and 1.253 SG: Tee-to-Green. He outbalanced bogeys at Nos. 3 and 13 (3-putt from 44'8"), with six birdies at 1, 2, 5, 7, 9 and 18, all from inside of 10 feet. The Florida alum recorded 1.615 putts per GIR and 1.468 SG: Putting, taking 27 total putts. Play is still in progress but the last time he's been this high on the leaderboard thru 36 holes was T2 at the 2015 Arnold Palmer, which he went on to win for his second (of two) TOUR titles.

Past champion Vijay Singh strung together a 4-under-par 34-34=68 during round two of the RBC Canadian Open, keeping his name near the top of the leaderboard on 10-under 134.

Singh fired out of the gate on Thursday with a stellar ball-striking display. Today, he lost strokes off-the-tee and approaching-the-green, but salvaged his round with some short-game magic. Most notable was a 22-foot hole-out birdie at the par-4 fifth hole. He also sank a long-distance birdie from 32'5" at the par-4 first hole. Singh has been T70 or worse after two rounds in 11 of his last 12 PGA TOUR starts but he did find himself in solo fourth at the midpoint of THE PLAYERS this year, finishing T16 by week's end. The 2004 champ at Glen Abbey Golf Club is certainly enjoying his time at a familiar and comfortable venue.

After a delay of just short of four hours Ashley Chesters returned to the North Course at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg to complete a second round of 5-under-par 36-31=67 to hit halfway in the Porsche European Open on 9-under 135, good for a one shot clubhouse lead.

The Englishman is now bogey-free through 36 holes at a very wet and long track. On Friday he started on the back nine and made his first move with back-to-back red numbers at 12 and 13, then he added another brace at 1 and 2 after the turn. A birdie-2 at the 8th complete his work. Curiously, on a course with five par-5s, Chester has only one birdie on them through two rounds. The weather problems make it unlikely that the second round will be completed by the end of Friday and with scoring conditions good it is possible that he will be passed. But in the clubhouse, with half the field having completed two laps, he leads by one from Siddikur Rahman. "Other than the driver I played well," he said. "Putter was especially good today."
Jul 28 - 12:26 PM

Richie Ramsay continued his impressive recent form with a 4-under-par 37-31=68 in round two of the Porsche European Open in Germany, good enough for the clubhouse lead of 6-under 138 before heavy rain caused suspension of play at 12:59 local time due to a waterlogged course.

Ramsay's round has lifted him 29 spots to T5 on the live leaderboard, two shots behind on-course leaders Jordan Smith (16 holes played) and Ashley Chesters (13). The Scot, who was runner-up in the Irish Open earlier this month and then prominent at Royal Birkdale before settling for T22, posted five birdies against a single bogey at Green Eagle GC in Hamburg today. His one blemish came at his first hole of the morning, the 10th, but he shook off the bad weather after that and collected red numbers at 11, 15, 5, 7 and 8 to surge up the leaderboard. Right now, Ramsay has a one-shot lead in the clubhouse over Michael Jonzon, Jose-Filipe Lima, Chris Paisley and Thorbjorn Olesen (all finished at 5-under).

Round one of the RBC Canadian Open was suspended due to darkness at 8:48 pm ET, with play set to resume at 8:20 a.m. Friday morning.

The field of 156 golfers nearly all completed their rounds today, despite a 1 hour, 55 minute, delay due to weather. There were just seven threesomes still on the course when the horn sounded. One of the last to finish was Martin Flores, who pieced together a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in round one. The highlight was an early eagle at the par-5 second where he belted a 344-yard drive to leave him just 170 yards on his second shot. He stuck that approach to 3'11" for a tap-in eagle. This is the second consecutive stellar start for Flores who opened with a 6-under 65 last week to co-lead at the Barbasol Championship. He would go on to finish T18.

PGA TOUR rookie Ollie Schniederjans breezed through Glen Abbey Golf Club, signing for a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 in round one of the RBC Canadian Open, good for a share of the clubhouse lead alongside Hudson Swafford, Brandon Hagy, Kevin Chappell, and Matt Every.

The Georgia Tech product kicked off his week on the back nine and made the turn at 4-under, despite carding seven pars. That means he picked up a pair of eagles, first in the hole-out variety (46'10") at the par-5 13th and then a more traditional eagle at the par-5 18th, rolling in a putt from 14'7". Schniederjans did most of his damage off the tee (+2.3 strokes gained off-the-tee), as he striped 11 (of 14) fairways while blasting nine drives of 300 yards or more. The hatless hero is 16-for-22 on the season but still searching for his first PGA TOUR win. This is the second time he's led/co-led after R1 and also the second straight event he's co-led after R1 (John Deere Classic, T39).
Jul 27 - 8:55 PM

Kevin Chappell put on a scoring bonzanza in round one of the RBC Canadian Open, firing a 7-under-par 31-34=65 to share the early clubhouse lead with Hudson Swafford, Brandon Hagy, and Matt Every.

Chappell was a part of the afternoon wave that had to sit through a near-two hour weather delay. It didn't slow him down any, and likely helped him as the post-weather scoring conditions were prime. Chappell took full advantage of the conditions, and the par 5s, today. Starting on the back nine, he circled a birdie at the par-5 13th before landing his approach to 14'2" at the par-5 16th and rolling it in (from the fringe) for an eagle. Just after the turn, he converted a second eagle, in very similar fashion. This time he kicked in his eagle (from the fringe) from 15'7" to play the par 5s at 5-under today. This will go in the books as his third career first-round co-lead, with the last two resulting in finishes of T13 (2014 PGA Championship) and T2 (2016 TOUR Championship).
Jul 27 - 8:12 PM

Matt Every rocketed out of the gate with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 during round one of the RBC Canadian Open, sharing an early clubhouse lead on Thursday afternoon.

Every hasn't found a top 25 since February of 2016 but he's not afraid to hang a low number, now and again. Most recently, it was a 6-under 64 in R1 of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to share the first-round lead. He's now in a similar position after circling seven birdies while keeping a clean card. The Florida Gator landed just 13 greens in regulation today but gained 2.961 strokes putting to save the day. He ended the day with six putts converted from 9'9" or longer. If this co-lead holds then it will be Every's sixth career lead/co-lead after R1 on TOUR, with four of them resulting in top 30s but one fading to T66. With prime scoring conditions on deck, he'll need to keep his foot on the gas this week.
