Tiger Woods extended his holdout from the Hyundai Tournament of Champions, electing not to compete for the sixth consecutive time he's qualified.

Woods hasn't knocked it around Kapalua since he shared third place to open the 2005 season. He earned return trips every year except 2011 and 2012 but took a pass time each time. This year's opportunity to decline the invite was secured via victories at the Arnold Palmer Invitational, the Memorial and the AT&T National. Instead, he's scheduled to begin his 2013 season at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Golf Championship on Jan. 17-20 where he posted a T3 this past January.

Webb Simpson will get an early start on his preparation for The Open Championship after missing the cut at The Greenbrier Classic.

After missing the cut in the inaugural Greenbrier in 2010, Simpson connected four paydays, three of which for a top 10. That string ended today with a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in his second round. At 3-over 143, he fell five shots outside the bubble to play on. He'll take next week off. Other notables who failed to survive today's cut include: 139--2013 champ Jonas Blixt; Daniel Berger; Marc Leishman; Steve Stricker ... 140--Bill Haas; Nick Watney; Charles Howell III; Colt Knost; Nick Taylor ... 141--Cameron Tringale; Rory Sabbatini; Scott Pinckney ... 145--Fabian Gomez ... 148--Daniel Summerhays.

Overnight leader Scott Langley hung on for a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 131 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Jhonattan Vegas.

The lefty went 2-for-3 in scrambling with a bogey but added a three-putt bogey from outside 54 feet at the par-3 15th hole. Elsewhere, he picked off three birdies, including runs of 30'3" at the par-5 17th and 24 feet at the par-4 sixth. He missed only two looks inside 11 feet, but those are magnified given the competition. Consider that there are 15 golfers inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and within two swings of the lead. Langley ranks T2 with 32 greens in regulation and T5 in birdies, but he knows that he'll have to keep the pedal floored if he's going to collect his first hardware on the PGA TOUR.

Kevin Stadler is included in the published field of next week's John Deere Classic.

If he plays, it'll be his first start since missing the cut at the Masters, which was his first action since withdrawing during the Hyundai Tournament of Champions. It was later revealed that Stadler was suffering from a broken bone in his left hand. He's fully exempt through next season by virtue of his win at the 2014 Waste Management Phoenix Open, so unless he goes on a tear this summer, he's going to be an automatic buy for salary gamers in 2015-16.

Jhonattan Vegas ripped off a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 9-under 131 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Vegas' aggregate held. He'll go in the books as a co-leader with Scott Langley.

After landing 15 greens in regulation in the opening round, Vegas found all 18 today. He converted five times for birdie, the longest stretching 14'2" at the par-5 17th hole. His 33 GIR led the field when he signed his card sitting one stroke lower than the previous clubhouse quad-leaders. It's quite a feat of precision given he's split only half of his 28 fairways, but having some strength on a course with soft greens due to rain never hurts.
Jul 3 - 5:22 PM

Victor Dubuisson tacked on a 1-under-par 35-35=70 to his opening 68 and shares the lead at the halfway mark of the Alstom Open de France.

The Frenchman shares top spot on 4-under 138 with Germany's Martin Kaymer and Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello and that trio will battle it out in a three-ball on Saturday with organizers hoping to quicken up play due to the threat of thunderstorms. Dubuisson hit 6-under after making an eagle-2 at 6 when holing his approach from 107 yards but gave those shots back with successive bogeys at 8 and 9. He took outright possession of the lead again with a birdie at 12 but dropped another shot at 17. After a difficult season, this is the perfect time and place for the Ryder Cup star to come back to life and he puts the return to form down to simply playing more golf. The 25-year-old took part in just five tournaments between January and April but this is his third event in a row and seventh since the start of May. Dubuisson hit only half the greens in regulation on Friday but is 12-for-16 in scrambling so far and his famed short game magic could make the difference this weekend.
Jul 3 - 12:55 PM

With an up-and-down for par at his 19th hole of the day, Rafa Cabrera-Bello assumed the lead on day two of the Open de France.

After returning to the course this morning to complete a bogey-free 68 which put him in a four-way tie for the lead, the Spaniard advanced his score to 4-under 138 after following it up with a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in round two. That put him a shot clear of Tyrrell Hatton, Jaco Van Zyl, James Morrison, Daniel Brooks and Francesco Molinari. RCB now has an immediate shot at converting another halfway lead after he failed to do so (finished T11) when two clear after 36 holes of last week's BMW International Open. Today he suffered his first bogeys so far, dropping shots at 11, 5 and 7 but birdies at 14, 17, 6 and 8 allowed him to break par for the second day running at the testing Le Golf National which will host the 2018 Ryder Cup. So far, Cabrera-Bello has split just 13 of 28 fairways but he's kept his score intact by going 8-for-10 in scrambling.
Jul 3 - 8:09 AM

Rafa Cabrera-Bello was part of a four-way tie for the lead when the first round of the Alstom Open de France was completed on Friday morning.

The Spaniard was one of 42 players who had to return to Le Golf National to finish off after storms had disrupted play on Thursday and he safely made par at 18 to card a 3-under-par 34-34=68 and join Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and South African Jaco Van Zyl at the top of the pile. Cabrera-Bello, who also had a share of the first-round lead at last week's BMW International in Germany, was bogey free on his opening lap after going 5-for-5 in scrambling. He picked up his birdies at 3, 4 and 15. Maximilian Kieffer was the leader at 4-under when storms halted play on Thursday evening but on his return this morning he dropped three shots in his final two holes to slip back to 1-under. Round two started as scheduled at 07:30 local time.
Jul 3 - 4:20 AM

Danny Lee crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic and sits just one strokes off Scott Langley's overnight lead.

Lee is making his PGA TOUR-leading 27th start this week. The travel hasn't affected him negatively as he's fresh off his eighth top 25 of the season (T25, Travelers) and sits 57th in the FedExCup standings. At The Old White TPC today, the 24-year-old hit 15 greens in regulation and found seven birdies, including a pair from 11-14 feet. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.750. His aggregate matches his career low first established at Pebble Beach in the first round of the annual stop on the Monterey Peninsula.
Jul 2 - 6:13 PM

Peter Uihlein withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic during his opening round, citing a neck injury.

Uihlein, who was competing on a sponsor exemption, completed 11 holes in birdie-free 4-over-par. He walked off after a par at the par-4 11th. This is his first mid-tournament WD in 17 PGA TOUR starts as a professional. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Scottish Open. The European Tour member is 56th in the Race to Dubai standings.
Jul 2 - 4:58 PM

Maximilian Kieffer led the way at 4-under after 14 holes as day one of the Open de France started and ended with a thunderstorm.

A two-and-a-half hour delay at Le Golf National meant the afternoon starters faced a battle to complete their rounds and Kieffer still had four to play when a second storm halted proceedings. He'd arrived at 4-under after mixing six birdies with a double bogey-5 at No.2. His par breakers came at 1, 3, 5, 9, 11 and 12 and helped take him one in front of clubhouse leaders Bernd Wiesberger, Victor Dubuisson and Jaco Van Zyl, who all posted 68s. Two other players, Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Andrew Dodt, sit at 3-under and both had just a single hole to play before the storms returned. A total of 42 players will return to the course at 07:30 local time on Friday to finish up. Round two will also start as scheduled at 07:30.
Jul 2 - 3:10 PM

Jonathan Byrd spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Oh, them breaks. Byrd tied his career low today and doesn't even share the lead in his own wave. This is the sixth time he's signed for a 63 in 1,088 career rounds on the PGA TOUR. He hit 13 greens in regulation and converted seven birdies. Three of them found the cup from outside 17 feet, the round-long measuring 36'9" at the par-4 10th hole. He also recorded a zero-putt six-yarder for birdie at the par-4 11th. Byrd's greatest test to keep his scorecard clean was fulfilled when he rolled in a five-yarder for par from the fringe at the par-4 seventh. At last check, he ranked sixth in both strokes-gained stats. At 166th in the FedExCup standings, today's success couldn't have come at a better time. Now comes the hard part, to make it count.
