In his most recent blog entry, Blake Adams relayed that he will undergo surgery on his left hip on Tuesday as previously expected.

Adams wrote: "After a MRI, X-rays, strength tests, and a Bio-Motion exam, it was determined by Dr. [Marc] Philippon and his staff [at the Steadman Clinic in Vail, Colo.] that I should undergo Hip Arthroscopy Surgery rather than a Total Hip Replacement. This was certainly a relief because at my age (37), the idea of having a Total Hip Replaced is mind-blowing! Dr. Philippon will remove the cyst, the bone spurs, shave and reshape my femur, and repair a torn labrum. Prior to my appointment, I was aware of the cyst and bone spurs. However, the torn labrum was definitely news to me and to be honest, I have no idea when it tore! Regardless, I am happy and comfortable with the diagnosis and I am looking forward to getting healthy." He doesn't know how soon he'll be able to return to competition, but given the timing, expect him to take as much time as necessary. He doesn't want to burn even one start that would be more valuable attached to a medical extension should he need one.

The second round of the Puerto Rico Open was suspended at 6:21 pm ET due to darkness with a scheduled resumption of 7:00 am Saturday.

A total of 43 players (of 131) were stranded, with the tardiest of them all still with eight holes remaining. A delay earlier in the day (heavy rain) put the festivities back 1 hour and 55 minutes. Points kicked off with 64, in solo 2nd and one back, and was one of the lucky ones to get his second frame into the books. With lift, clean and place in effect, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit all 18 greens in regulation, outpacing a lone bogey-5 at four with birdie-4s at Nos. 2, 5 and 18, adding a 2 at the par-3 16th. That equates to a 3-under-par 35-34=69 for the World No. 634, currently tied with Bryson DeChambeau and past champ Alex Cejka for the 36-hole clubhouse lead on 11-under 133.

One day shy of his 32nd birthday, Scott Stallings withdrew during the second round of the Puerto Rico Open.

At press time, there has been no word from any sources as to the cause of Stallings' early departure. Beginning off No. 10 tee, he was 1-under-par thru 15 holes, scribbling one birdie and 14 pars, but 4-over total after an opening 77 (three birdies, eight bogeys) when he packed it in. This is the Massachusetts native's third mid-tourney WD in 167 career starts, first since the 2016 CareerBuilder Challenge. He is in the published field at next week's Shell Houston Open so gamers should keep an eye out for any updates.

Dustin Johnson continued his relentless march at the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club in Texas, topping Group 1 with a perfect 3-0-0 record after beating Ryder Cup colleague Jimmy Walker 5-and-3 and advancing to the Round of 16.

Johnson looked set to win this one in record time after powering into a 6-up lead through seven holes. That was a combination of his own excellence (an 11-foot eagle at 6 along with birdies at 1 and 7) and poor play from Walker (bogeys at 2, 4 and 5). Walker avoided further punishment by chipping in to halve No. 8 and repeated the trick for a winning eagle at 12 after he'd birdied 11. The rally cut Johnson's advantage to 4-up with six to play but the No. 1 seed wasn't going to tolerate any further erosion of his lead and halved 14 by draining a 23'3" par putt. That knocked any remaining hope out of Walker, who bogeyed 15 to confirm Johnson's dominant win. Today's victory followed a 3-and-2 success over Martin Kaymer and 5-and-3 win over Webb Simpson so DJ has yet to play the 17th or 18th holes this week. His last-16 opponent will be 44th seed Zach Johnson.

Making his PGA TOUR debut and first start anywhere in 21 weeks, World No. 1152 and open-qualifier Cyril Bouniol spun a bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the weather-delayed second round of the Puerto Rico Open to put 6-under 138 on the board, up 44 spots on the live leaderboard to T27.

The Frenchman, who graduated from Abilene Christian in 2011, has played 42 career events on the Challenge Tour, including 15 in 2016. He was in the money 13 times with three top 25s and one top 10, finishing 87th in the Road to Oman rankings, which is Category 14 status for 2017. The 29-year-old, who resides in Fort Worth, Texas, played one full season on the European Tour in 2015, cashing just six times in 20 starts with a best of T36. He opened with 71 (four birdies, three bogeys) and came back on Day 2 to circle five birdies on nine (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, including three straight on holes 1-3 to begin his inward nine.

Hideto Tanihara beat Japanese compatriot Yuta Ikeda 3-and-1 at the World Golf Championship-Dell Technologies Match Play at Austin Country Club, winning Group 5 with 2.5pts and confirming the exit of fifth-seeded Jordan Spieth.

Tanihara's victory over Spieth on day one and halved match with Ryan Moore yesterday meant he controlled his own destiny. And he rendered the Spieth v Moore match (eventually halved) meaningless after beating his higher-seeded countryman today. Tanihara (54) took the lead against Ikeda (37) with a kick-in birdie at 2 and, after the next was shared in birdie-2s, doubled his advantage with another circle at 6. The match lacked quality from there as Tanihara won the 8th with bogey to go 3-up while Ikeda's only wins were with pars at 10 and 14. Tanihara won 12 to keep daylight between him and his rival and closed out victory with a winning birdie at 17 from 13'11". This surprise group win for the World No. 60 sets up a Round of 16 clash with England's Paul Casey.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 147 Bryson DeChambeau painted a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the weather-delayed second round of the Puerto Rico Open, the current clubhouse leader on 11-under 133 and posting a new career low on the PGA TOUR in his 79th career round. UPDATE: R2 was suspended due to darkness (stranding 43), but DeChambeau is still sharing the clubhouse lead, joined by D.A. Points.

The first-time member (though not a rookie) had previously shot 66 six times, most recently at the 2017 Sony Open/R3. This is his 27th career start (22 pro) and his 12th start of the season. The SMU product checked in at 163rd in the FedExCup standings with just four previous cashes and a season-best T27 in his last start at the Valspar -- on a sponsor exemption -- with laps of 67-70-72-73. He kicked off with a five-birdie one-bogey 68 and chased with seven birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation, highlighted by four straight circles on holes 5-8. The Web.com Tour grad posted 1.563 putts per GIR and used the putter 26 times.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 325 Tim Wilkinson painted a bogey-free 9-under-par 29-34=63 in the weather-delayed second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach 10-under 134, tying the clubhouse lead with Chris Stround and matching the low round of the week -- and course record -- with first-round leader Trey Mullinax.

The Web.com Tour grad is the sixth player (seventh time) to put 63 on the board at Coco Beach. His career low in a now-433 career rounds is 8-under 62/R3 of the 2008 Sony Open, but this would be a new low in relation to par. Beginning on No. 10 tee, the 38-year-old went out in 2-under with back-to-back birdies on Nos. 14 and 15, and then came home in 7-under 29, holing out for eagle-3 at 2 and circling five straight on holes 4-8. He split 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 17 greens in regulation, recording a stellar 1.438 putts per GIR and 25 putts total. This is the Kiwi's sixth appearance in Puerto Rico and after an opening 71, improves to 3-for-6. He has two prior top-25 finishes with one top 10, a T6 on debut in 2008.

The second round of the Puerto Rico Open was suspended at 11:35 a.m. ET due to heavy rain with players being removed from the course. UPDATE: Play is scheduled to resume at 1:30 p.m.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 343 Chris Stroud hung up a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 10-under 134, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. He was on his final hole (par-5 18th) in three and had just missed a lengthy birdie try when the horn sounded. The 35-year-old chose to finish up, knocking in a short come-backer to complete an 8-birdie one-bogey lap. Playing this season on conditional status, he's making his fifth start of the season, entering the week 2-for-4 with one finish inside the top 70, a T13 at the RSM prior to the holiday break. Chasing an opening 69 (five birdies, two bogeys), the Texan improves to 6-for-7 in Puerto Rico. His best so far (and lone top 10) is T9 in 2014 (73-67-68-65).

Soren Kjeldsen followed up his impressive Wednesday win with a 4-and-3 victory over Emiliano Grillo in round two of the WGC-Dell Technologies Match Play, securing his spot in the Round of 16 and eliminating 2-seed Rory McIlroy in the process.

The Dane was a wrecking ball on day one, but fell behind early today. After a par-bogey start, Kjeldsen found himself 2-down. He responded with three birdies over the next four holes to square the score, all on putts from inside six feet. The duo traded blows over the next three holes before Kjeldsen escaped from the pack to win four straight holes after the turn. The Dane arrived this week with an 0-4-1 record at this event, but he's now secured his spot in the Round of 16 after back-to-back wins, knocking out World No. 2 in the process. Kjeldsen will have a rest day tomorrow as his would-be opponent Gary Woodland has withdrawn from the event for personal reasons.
Mar 23 - 7:09 PM

Due to heavy rain in the area, round one of the Puerto Rico Open was suspended at 5:06 p.m. ET with play set to resume at 7:00 a.m. on Friday morning.

While the morning wave got ideal scoring conditions this morning, the afternoon wave did not get so lucky. Golfers played through off-and-on weather throughout the day, but the officials eventually deemed it too much and sounded the horn just after 5:00 p.m. ET. There were 36 golfers left stranded on the course, with one of those being last year's 36-hole leader, Rafael Campos. The local favorite is currently 5-under thru 15 as he's traded seven birdies with two bogeys so far. Last year he finished T8 at this event, his first top 25 in nine tries at Coco Beach Golf and Country Club.
Mar 23 - 5:42 PM

After an 0-2-0 start to his week in Austin, Texas, Francesco Molinari has withdrawn from this week's World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play, citing a wrist injury.

The Italian swallowed four bogeys in his match today against Thongchai Jaidee. The Thai would go onto to win 5-and-3 to eliminate Molinari. The Italian could have played spoiler in his final match of group play but instead called it quits, citing a wrist injury. With this WD, 8th-seeded Alex Noren will advanced out of Group 8 with a 3-0-0 record with a free win gifted to him tomorrow.
