With a pair of 5-under-par 66s, Robert Garrigus was the first to post a clubhouse lead at the midpoint of the Waste Management Phoenix Open.

Garrigus has turned in nines of 32, 34, 34 and 32 to reach 10-under 142. His opening round included an eagle from nine yards off the green at the par-5 third hole as well as four birdies. Today's loop of TPC Scottsdale featured six birdies, including a zero-putt hole-out from five yards, also at the third. He also rolled in birdies from 17'10" and 12'4" at the 11th and fourth holes, respectively. Despite those theatrics, Garrigus needed respective par saves from 10'3" and 12 feet at the eighth and ninth holes -- his last two of the day -- to remain double digits under par.

Sponsor invite Martin Piller continued his onslaught of Colonial Country Club twirling a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 8-under 132, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Webb Simpson.

Simpson posted his aggregate yesterday while Piller returned on Saturday morning to put his on the board. He was 1-under thru six holes, 5-under total when play was suspended on Friday due to darkness. The Dallas native and resident circled the ninth and the 10th after the restart, the latter a bomb from 44'4", but got so excited he canceled them out with a double bogey-7 at 11. He righted the ship from there, with further birdies at Nos. 13, 15 and 18, walking-off with a 19-inch gimme after hitting his approach from 122 yards stiff.

Kyle Reifers authored a 3-under-par 31-36=67 in the two-day second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to post 7-under 133, up two into a four-way T3, one back of 36-hole leaders Webb Simpson and Martin Piller.

The 32-year-old was even-par thru seven holes (beginning off the back nine), and 4-under total when play was suspended on Friday due to darkness. He returned on Saturday morning and immediately squared a bogey-5 on the 17th (failed scramble) to turn birdie-less 1-over. The Ohio native rebounded for four birdies and a bogey-free inward 31, circling Nos. 2, 4, 7 and 8, three from four feet and in with a long of 26'9" at the par-3 fourth.

Ryan Palmer orchestrated a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the weather-delayed second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational to reach the halfway point on 7-under 133, one back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Webb Simpson.

Simpson posted his aggregate yesterday, while Palmer returned on Saturday morning to post his number, up two on the live leaderboard into a four-way T2. He was 1-under thru eight holes (beginning off the back nine) and 5-under total when play was suspended on Friday due to darkness. The 39-year-old ended Friday's play on a sour note, with his first bogey of the round at the 17th, but erased that with birdie-3 from 15'11" at the 18th to turn 2-under. He chased with a hole-out eagle at the par-5 first from 53'5" away and nearly holed-out for eagle-2 on the second, with his approach from 65 yards ending just one inch from the cup for a kick-in birdie. Palmer stalled out from there however, erasing birdie at the eighth with bogey-5s on Nos. 3 (three-putt), 5 and 9, the latter two on failed scrambles.

One (of 61) who were stranded due to darkness in Friday's second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational did not return on Saturday morning to complete their respective rounds.

At press time, Fabian Gomez is the only player who did not return. He was 5-over thru 10 holes and 8-over total. With eight holes remaining and the projected cut at 1-over 141, the 37-year-old chose to call it a day. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 96 career starts and first since the 2013 RBC Heritage. The Argentine ranks 22nd in the FedExCup standings and arrived for his third DDI off a T74 (of 76) at THE PLAYERS. There is no current information indicating his WD was due to injury. Gomez is in the published field at next week's Memorial where he posted a T69/2013 in his only appearance.

Bryce Molder completed 15 holes at 3-under-par, to reach 9-under on the week, before darkness suspended play for the day. He will return to the course Saturday morning at 7:30 a.m. CT to close out the second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. UPDATE: R2 resumed as scheduled at 7:30 a.m. Saturday.

Molder started the day atop the leaderboard and showed no signs of letting up today. He circled birdies in five of his first eight holes to extend his aggregate to 11-under. The first two birdies come on putts from outside 11 feet, but the final birdie was the big whopper, holing out from the greenside bunker on the par-3 eighth hole. His fire got extinguished on the back nine, particularly on the par-4 12th hole where he took four shots just to reach the green and then two-putted from 4'6" to swallow a double-bogey, his first blemish of the week. The Georgia Tech alum currently ranks first in strokes gained tee to green this week and will now sleep on a one-stroke lead before returning tomorrow at 7:30 a.m. to close out the second round.

Jordan Spieth made a splash during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, signing a 4-under-par 31-35=66 to reach the midpoint at 7-under 133, just one stroke off the current clubhouse leader Webb Simpson.

Unlike day one when Spieth opened with a birdie bomb, he three-jacked his opening hole this time around, swallowing a bogey at the par-4 10th hole to kick things off. He bounced back with birdies in two of the next three holes to get his round back to red numbers. The Texas Longhorn missed the backstop by inches at the par-3 16th hole, leaving himself a near impossible putt, leading to a second three-putt of the round. Spieth picked up steam as he made the turn, though, circling birdies in four of his next five holes. A missed 17'2" putt at the par-4 third hole being the only thing that unchained the potential 5-hole birdie train. This goes in the books as the low round of the day, as well. Unlike last week, the Dallas native's ball-striking looks to be in top-shape as he's split 16 (of 28) fairways and landed 28 greens in regulation through two rounds.

Webb Simpson kept his foot on the gas pedal with a 3-under-par 34-33=67 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, grabbing an early claim of the clubhouse lead at 8-under 132.

The Wake Forest product split seven (of 14) fairways and landed 11 greens in regulation en route to a four birdie, one bogey effort. His lone blemish came at the par-4 seventh hole as he whiffed on a 4'6" par-saving attempt. On the flip side, he splashed in four putts from outside nine feet, so the new Matt Kuchar method of putting seems to be working out for Simpson who arrived this week ranked 184th in strokes gained putting. He's currently 18th in the field in that regard. The elite ball-striker should continue to give himself birdie chances over the weekend, so it will be intriguing to see if his new putting stroke holds up under more pressure as the week progresses.

Danny Willett tacked on a 4-under-par 29-39=68 to his opening 66 and has a three-shot clubhouse lead in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

If the Englishman fancies adding a win in the European Tour's flagship event to the Masters crown he won last month, he's certainly going about it the right manner after another strong day at the West Course. And yet, he'll feel he could be even further clear. Willett raced to the turn in just 29 blows (the lowest nine on the European Tour this season) after a run of six birdies in seven holes from the third. But coming home, he bogeyed 10 (offset by a birdie at 14) before dropping shots at 15, 16 and 17. He did at least end on a positive with a walk-off par breaker to post 10-under 134 at the midpoint. Willet piped 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation but surprisingly, given the strength of his short game, he was just 1-for-5 in scrambling. "I played great most of the day and then chucked a couple of horrid shots in there and it was nice to make birdie at the last after composing myself quite nicely," he said.

Webb Simpson styled a 5-under-par 33-32=65 during the opening round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, placing him at T2 just one stroke off the leader Bryce Molder.

Simpson started on the back nine and splashed in four putts from outside five feet before making the turn at 3-under. That wouldn't be notable for most golfers, but the Wake Forest product entered the week ranked 184th in strokes gained putting as he continues to make the conversion to a non-anchored putting stroke. The flat stick really picked up steam on his inward nine, firing in a 21'8" birdie on the par-4 second and then a 19'4" birdie bomb on the par-4 fifth hole. Believers in the infamous nappy factor will place all the credit on Simpson's wife having their fourth child just two weeks ago. Regardless if that's true or not, Simpson is now a serious threat to contend this week, as long as the putter can remain relatively warm. He arrived with an 0-for-2 record at Colonial Country Club but this is his first visit since 2010. This also matches his low round of the season (Sony Open/R3; CareerBuilder/R2).

Bill Haas survived a cold putter en route to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 33-34=67 during the first round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, placing him three strokes off the early pace set by Bryce Molder.

Haas split nine (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation, both more than 10 percent over the field average. Despite the great ball-striking, he couldn't convert on the greens, losing 2.336 strokes with the flat stick. His longest converted putt was a six-footer to save par at the par-4 fifth hole. Luckily, Haas didn't even need a putter on the par-3 eighth hole as he slam-dunked a 50'1" greenside bunker shot for birdie. The Wake Forest product owns top 25s in three of his last four starts here at Colonial Country Club, but he really needs to figure out the greens if he wants to remain in contention as the week progresses.

Afternoon starter Joost Luiten made it a three-way tie atop the first-round leaderboard at the BMW PGA Championship after shooting a 7-under-par 31-34=65.

The Dutchman matched the clubhouse target set by Scott Hend and YE Yang after trading nine birdies against two bogeys in his opening lap of Wentworth's West Course. The trio are a shot ahead of Masters champion Danny Willett. Luiten wiped out a bogey at the first with a birdie-2 at No. 2 and made further gains at 4, 6, 7 and 8 to turn in 31. He reeled off three more par breakers at 12, 13 and 15 to join the lead before swallowing a bogey at 16. But Luiten, who has eight top 15s from 11 starts this season, circled red at 18 to join Hend and Yang. His two dropped shots came after finding sand while he split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation and took just 25 swishes of the short-stick.
