Phil Mickelson bogeyed the final two holes of his second round of the Farmers Insurance Open, but still survived the cut on the number at 1-under-par 72-71=143.

Mickelson played Torrey Pines South today. He sandwiched two bogeys with five birdies before limping in on the 17th and 18th holes. He's one of 19 golfers tied for 69th place at the midpoint; therefore a second cut of low 70 and ties will occur after 54 holes. This is otherwise known as the Made-(cut)-Didn't-Finish (MDF). Cool and wet conditions are expected to persist through Saturday. There may be some clearing midday but it's unlikely that anyone of the 87 remaining in the field will avoid the use of an umbrella.

Brendon de Jonge twirled a 6-under-par 31-32=63 in today's third round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship for a 54-hole tally of 9-under 199, good for the early clubhouse lead.

de Jonge began the day T40 and six shots adrift of the 36-hole lead. The 34-year-old took advantage of lift, clean and place conditions (on closely-mown areas) to bag seven birdies against one bogey. de Jonge opened with four straight pars before reeling off four consecutive birdies on Nos. 5-8 to turn in 4-under 31. He added par breakers on the par-4 11th, the par-3 17th, and the 108-yard, par-3 14th, which was converted from a par 4 to a par 3 for the second consecutive round due to course conditions. The Zimbabwean would square his lone bogey at the last after his tee ball found the water.

At 1-under 71-67=138, Trevor Immelman made the cut on the number at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

This is Immelman's first payday since a T49 at the CIMB Classic last fall. He went nine straight starts without one. However, his work is far from over. Because 87 golfers survived the cut, another cut of low 70 professionals and ties will fall at the conclusion of 54 holes. After a threat of inclement weather clears out this afternoon, the forecast for the remainder of the weekend is favorable.

Brendon Todd chased his opening 72 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 1-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round and missed the cut by two shots.

The defending champion traded four birdies with three bogeys in the second round. It's just his third MC in 15 starts this season, so he'll have to regroup for next week's Memorial. Other notables that missed the cut at TPC Four Seasons include: 139--Martin Laird; Charles Howell III; Morgan Hoffmann ... 140--Brendan Steele; Marc Leishman; Patrick Rodgers ... 141--2007 champ Scott Verplank ... 143--2013 champ Sangmoon Bae.

Benjamin Alvarado shot 3-over-par 69-73=142 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship and missed the cut by four strokes.

The Chilean poured in six birdies at TPC Four Seasons Resort-Las Colinas this week, but also absorbed five bogeys and a pair of double bogey-6s, both of which in his second round. He's now 1-for-4 on the season, but this week's start was his last via a medical extension in the reshuffle category. For the record, he fell $670,304 and 397 FedExCup points short of its terms for a promotion to the Major Medical category. However, Alvarado still has four starts remaining on a Minor Medical Extension with the same targets. He's also 281.760 FedExCup points shy of meeting the objective for conditional status. Overall, the slide from the reshuffle to the Minor Medical category isn't far and you won't notice the difference.

Overnight co-leader Søren Kjeldsen turned in a 4-under-par 32-35=67 for his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and owns a two-stroke lead over Maximillian Kieffer and fellow 36-hole co-leader Rafa Cabrera-Bello.

Kjeldsen was one of six atop the leaderboard at the midpoint. He opened with a birdie at the par-5 first and circled another five through 13 holes. He was maintaining the only blemish-free card until squaring a bogey at the par-4 17th. He then closed with a bogey-6 at 18 that yielded only two birdies among 68 golfers that came through today. The Dane celebrated his 40th birthday on May 17. He's a three-time winner on the European Tour but not since 2009. One of the perks for winning this week's test at Royal County Down Golf Club in Northern Ireland is a berth into the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational in early August. While Kjeldsen still has a long way to go to secure the tee time at Firestone, that he's in position to achieve it is a surprise. Despite improving form of late, he started the week slotted 303rd in the Official World Golf Ranking.

Rickie Fowler signed for a 5-over-par 35-41=76 following his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and sits at 5-over 218 through 54 holes.

Oh, what a difference two holes make. Fowler started the day just inside the top 10 on the leaderboard and opened today's stroll around Royal County Down with a bogey-6 at the first hole. He played his next 15 holes impeccably with a a birdie-2 at No. 7 and a chip-in for eagle at the par-4 16th. Now 2-under and lurking, the American lost his tee ball at the par-4 17th and clunked around until he penciled in an 8. Alas, he post the same number on the par-5 18th and compound matters. Links golf offers few opportunities to let off the gas. Today's cold and windy conditions didn't help. Fowler paid the price. Twice.

With a 6-under-par 32-33=65 in his third round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open, Maximilian Kieffer established the course record at Royal County Down Golf Club.

No one shows up on this famed piece of property and inquires about the course record, but the German doesn't need to now, anyway. The only thing is, it may not last long. Søren Kjeldsen is 6-under with two holes to play. Nevertheless, no one can take away what Kieffer accomplished today. He went 5-for-6 in scrambles with one bogey and countered with seven birdies. It's a remarkable turnaround from Friday's 76. Now 5-under 208, he's the 54-hole clubhouse leader in Newcastle, Northern Ireland. Incidentally, the previous mark of 66 was equaled by England's Tyrrell Hatton in the second round.

The restart of the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship has been pushed back three hours to 11:00 a.m. CT. UPDATE: Play resumed at 10:58 a.m.

With more rain overnight falling on an already saturated TPC Four Seasons, this delay is necessary. Flooding has been occurring throughout the Dallas Metroplex, so that they were even playing golf at all on Friday is a testament to the grounds crew. When play resumes, Roberto Castro will have one hole to complete. He'll be returning to the par-4 ninth. He's even on his round and 1-under for the tournament. The cut line is likely going to fall at 1-under 138, so he knows exactly what he needs to score. He needs the payday, too. The 29-year-old sits 208th in the FedExCup standings. Castro is one of 33 who were unable to finish the second round due to darkness. The start of play was delayed three hours in the morning.

Brian Gay underwent surgery on his left thumb on Tuesday, May 19, and remains out indefinitely.

Gay wife's, Kimberly, shared a post-op photo on Twitter, which you can see at the link below. Three days later, she tweeted that it's his second thumb surgery in eight months. It was in early October that Brian's caddie, Kip Henley, conveyed on Twitter that his boss was out with a thumb injury. Until Kimberley alerted her followers about the second surgery, we didn't know that Brian even had one. He hasn't played this season and figures not to return for months. So, expect him to open 2015-16 with a Major Medical Extension in the vicinity of 26 starts. The four-time PGA TOUR winner is 43 years of age.

Jimmy Walker followed his opening 64 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 3-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round, reaching the midpoint in 9-under 130 and share of the 36-hole lead.

Walker has to be happy to have snuck in his entire round today. Play was suspended at the beginning of the day due to unplayable conditions all over TPC Four Seasons due to four-and-a-half inches of overnight rain. Walker opened with six pars before lassoing his first of five birdies at the par-5 seventh hole. He covered bogey-5s at Nos. 12 and 15 with birdies at 11, 13, 14 and 16. His 12 birdies overall ranks second in the field to co-leader Steven Bowditch's 15. Walker will enter the weekend in pursuit of his third title of the season. You'll recall that he won thrice last season after failing to find paydirt in his first 187 starts on the PGA TOUR.

Overnight leader Steven Bowditch chased his opening 62 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 1-under-par 34-34=68 in today's second round to post 9-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole lead.

We're only two days into the tournament, but we've already seen most of the spectrum that the Aussie possesses. He putted the light out on Thursday, as he's often prone to do, and the added seven birdies today, but also incurred six bogeys. So, he easily leads the field with 15 birdies but drifts into a tie for the lead at the halfway point.
