Matt Jones rolled in nine birdies on the Palm Course in his second round of the Children's Miracle Network Hospitals Classic en route to an 8-under-par 32-32=64.

Jones sits 177th on the money list, so his timing to record his lowest round (of 51) this year is impeccable. He hit 14 greens in regulation and totaled just 25 putts to post 9-under 135, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Luke Donald blitzed Harbour Town Golf Links for a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the RBC Heritage and enjoys a two-stroke lead over John Huh with 18 holes to play.

Donald got things started early with a 23'2" eagle on the par-5 second, but alternated two birdies with three bogeys on the rest of his front nine. He was blemish-free on the back, gathering four more birdies on his way to the clubhouse. In addition to the eagle, he had three other birdie conversions from between 14 and 20 feet. His irons were on point, landing 14 GIR for the second consecutive round, and he is tied for second with 72.2 percent for the week. The Englishman has experienced no shortage of success in his recent visits to Hilton Head Island. He's cracked the top three in four of his last five attempts to slip on the tartan jacket, but has yet to emerge with a win.

Kevin Na completed 36 holes of the RBC Heritage in 6-over-par 72-76=148 and missed the cut by two strokes.

After trading two birdies with three bogeys in the lid-lifter, Na went 0-for-11 in par-breaker chances in the second round, which he concluded on Friday. It's just the second MC in his last nine starts, a run that has included three top 10s and another three top 25s. Other notables that failed to survive include: 147--2006 RBC champ Aaron Baddeley; Roberto Castro; Cameron Tringale ... 148--2012 RBC champ Carl Pettersson; 2002 RBC champ Justin Leonard; Hunter Mahan; Marc Leishman; Tom Watson ... 149--1999 RBC champ Glen Day ... 150--five-time RBC champ and all-time earnings leader at the tournament, Davis Love III; Hideki Matsuyama ... 153--1984 RBC champ Nick Faldo ... 154--Russell Henley; Will MacKenzie. The third round began at 12:20 p.m. ET with golfers grouped in threesome off split tees. The leaders are scheduled to go off the first tee at 2:20 p.m.

Ben Martin backed up his opening 69 at the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his second round to post 5-under 137, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Martin was alone atop the leaderboard and bogey-free in the round until incurring a bogey-5 at the ninth hole, his last of the loop. Prior to it, he rolled in four birdies, including conversions of 14'1" and 12'8" at the 13th and fifth holes, respectively. The PGA TOUR sophomore -- his rookie season was 2011 -- is a Clemson product, and the RBC is the only TOUR event in South Carolina, so there's some synergy in play as he chased his first victory this weekend.

Jim Furyk crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Furyk split 11 (of 14) fairways and went 5-for-5 in scrambling during his two-day loop of Harbour Town. He found five birdies, including a 15-yard hole-out from the rough at the par-4 third. His longest of the conventional variety measured 16'8" at 11 and 10'5" at 9. He made only one bogey in the lid-lifter.

Billy Hurley III twirled a bogey-free, 2-under-par 34-35=69 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 3-under 139, two strokes adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He hit only 10 greens in regulation and circled two birdies, but today's scoring average is likely going to showcase this as one of the rounds of the day. Toss in the fact that this is his first appearance at Harbour Town and he entered on an 0-for-3 skid. Hurley III opened par-birdie-par-birdie, the last conversion measuring 14'6" at the par-3 fourth hole.

Bill Haas withdrew from the RBC Heritage prior to his second round, citing a wrist injury.

Haas was scheduled to go off the first tee at 12:50 p.m. ET. He opened with a 1-over-par 36-36=72. It's the first time in 251 PGA TOUR starts that he's withdrawn during a tournament and it ends his consecutive cuts made streak at 14. He co-led the Shell Houston Open after 18 holes and sat alone at the top of the Masters after one round, but went on to finish T37 and T20, respectively. If an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you.

K.J. Choi spun a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in his second round of the RBC Heritage to post 5-under 137 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Choi hit 11 greens in regulation today and picked off six birdies, including a hole-out from the rough seven yards away at the par-4 11th. All of his other par breakers were of the conventional method and included conversions from 14 feet, 24'2" and 23'3" at Nos. 2, 8 and 16, respectively. He also saved par from 10'1" at the par-4 third. The South Korean tied for 18th at Harbour Town last year.

During his second round of the Maybank Malaysian Open in Kuala Lumpur, Pablo Larrazábal found refuge in a lake after being attacked by hornets.

He was playing the par-5 fifth hole when the dangerous insects were seemingly attracted to his shirt. "They were three times the size of bees," he said. "They were huge and like 30 or 40 of them started to attack me big time. I didn’t know what to do. My caddie told me to run, so I start running like a crazy guy, but the hornets were still there, so the other players told me to jump in the lake. I ran to the lake, threw my scorecard down, took off my shoes and jumped in the water. It was the scariest moment of my career, for sure. I’ve never been so scared." Naturally, he birdied the hole and shot 4-under 68. "The referees and a doctor took me aside and gave me a couple of injections and told me to relax. After the injections I felt a lot better and could continue. Without the help of the referees I couldn’t have finished the round, because I was in no state to play golf."

In a feature at Golfweek.com, Jim McCabe explained why Steve Marino hadn't competed in 2014 until his first round of the RBC Heritage.

After missing the cut at the OHL Classic of Mayakoba, the final stop before the holiday break, Marino injured his left leg after jumping onto a sandbar from his boat. He fractured the fibula and tore ligaments in his ankle. Note that this is the same leg on which he had surgery in his knee in October of 2011. He also received a stem call injection to aid in the healing process. Only recently was he comfortable in walking 18 holes in competition. "I feel really good," Marino said. "I think I'm ready." Suddenly, his opening 72 at Harbour Town looks a little better.

William McGirt crafted a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, earning a piece of the overnight lead.

We've stated it here before, but it happened again today. McGirt found another gear with his putter despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation. He connected four birdies beginning at the second hole, the last three of which measuring 11 feet, 14'9" and 20'11", respectively. He made the turn with another birdie conversion at 9, this time from 11'6". After a bogey-6 at 15, his only blemish of the round, the North Carolina native rolled in a par save from 12'4" at 16, and then holed out for birdie from a bunker 14 yards out at the par-3 17th. At last check, his strokes gained-putting split, which doesn't include the jarred bunker blast, sat at a gaudy 4.757. He arrived at Harbour Town ranked 32nd on the PGA TOUR in SG-P, but has just two top 25s in 14 starts.

With a 5-under-par 31-35=66 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage, Scott Langley shares the clubhouse lead.

Since a solo third at Copperhead five weeks ago, Langley is 0-for-2. That mini-drought figures to end at Harbour Town where he hit 12 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies today. He holed six of them on the front nine, but the only of notable distance measured 17 feet at the par-3 14th. He also salvaged a par from 11'1" at 3.
