Hunter Mahan posted a 6-under-par 31-35=66 on the host course in his opening round of the AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

Mahan arrives in form and with a solid track record at this event, so today's effort is not surprising. He hit 16 greens and converted seven birdies, the longest of which disappearing from 14'8" at the seventh hole. He'd incur a bogey at the par-4 17th, failing to get up and down from the rough right and short of the putting surface. Mahan's aggregate is two strokes higher than Russell Knox, who played Monterey Peninsula Country Club's Shore Course today -- site of Mahan's second round on Friday -- but they are tied in relation to par.

With a 1-under-par 33-38=71 in his third round of the Volvo China Open, defending champion Alexander Levy is one of four atop the leaderboard after 54 holes.

Levy tore off four consecutive birdies to open the day at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club, but he played the remainder in birdie-free 3-over and settled into a co-lead with Hao-Tong Li, Ashun Wu and first-round co-leader David Howell at 8-under 208. "It was the perfect start for me," the Frenchman said, "but after that I got a little bit nervous, because I haven’t played well for three months now so I haven’t been in this position for a while. It’s nice to be back at the top of the leaderboard, but I have to get used to it again. I’m just really happy to be playing some good golf again, that’s more important than me worrying about winning the trophy again. I’ll need to have a good round again tomorrow, but it’s not easy on this course because you can’t be too aggressive." He and the others own a four-shot cushion over another foursome, including Sweden's Magnus A. Carlsson, who carded a field-low 65.

The third round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans was suspended at 12:14 p.m. CT due to inclement weather. UPDATE: In a brief interview on CBS at 3:30 p.m., the PGA TOUR's Vice President of Rules and Competition, Slugger White, said that the tournament will go into Monday if necessary to complete 72 holes.

Here we go again. For the third time in as many days, tournament officials have been forced to stop the action. This could be a lengthy delay, too, as significant rain is encroaching on New Orleans. Six of the 71 golfers that survived the cut have as many as five holes in the books in the third round. This group includes Scott Brown, who went out in the first threesome off the 10th tee. He's even on the round and 6-under through 42 holes. Lift, clean and place was in effect for the first two rounds. It is again for the third.

Despite a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, Rickie Fowler missed the cut on the number.

It takes only one crooked number to lose in a shootout. To wit, Fowler penciled in a 6 at the par-3 17th hole in the opening round. He also bogeyed the par-5 second en route to an even-par 72 (that also included an eagle-3 and two birdies). This puts an end to a consecutive cuts made streak of 17, but he'll start anew with a guaranteed payday at next week's Match Play. Other notables that failed to survived today's cut include: 140--Harris English; Charles Howell III; Zac Blair; Will MacKenzie; Troy Merritt ... 141--Robert Streb; Jamie Donaldson; Bo Van Pelt ... 142--2007 champ Nick Watney; 2010 champ Jason Bohn ... 143--Brendan Steele ... 144--2008 champ Andres Romero; Martin Laird; Marc Warren ... 147--Scott Piercy ... 148--Tony Finau.

At 3-under-par 69-72=141, Steve Stricker missed the cut at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans by two strokes.

It's a phrase not associated with Stricker in almost three years. This is his first MC in 37 starts (2012 PLAYERS). Twelve of his paydays during the streak occurred in events with no cut. He found only 14 (of 28) fairways and 24 greens in regulation at TPC Louisiana this week. Nine birdies weren't enough to offset six bogeys. We'll see him again in two weeks at THE PLAYERS since he failed to qualify for the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship for the first time since 2006.

Jason Day hung up a bogey-free, 7-under-par 34-31=65 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans and posted 12-under 132 at the break, good for outright possession of the 36-hole lead.

No one is going to catch him, so Day will be the target beginning the third round late this morning at TPC Louisiana. He went 5-for-5 in scrambling and picked off seven birdies in the second round. The highlights stretch 24'1" and 33'11" at Nos. 9 and 15, respectively. The Aussie is proving that course history, or lack thereof, usually takes a back seat to current form among the elite. And remember, he'll be defending at next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship, so he's on his way to being an even more popular selection in fantasy circles if he keeps playing like this.

Justin Rose enjoyed a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Rose's success at TPC Louisiana is one of the reasons gamers hop aboard for the week. He fulfilled the faith with what goes in the books as his lowest of 26 competitive rounds of the course to get to 9-under 135 and sits three strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He hit 14 greens and rolled in six birdies, the longest from just 12'1" at the par-4 fifth hole. This personal low also extended his streak of red numbers at TPC Louisiana to 13 dating back to a second-round 67 in 2012.

Marc Leishman returned to TPC Louisiana this morning to polish off a 9-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of the Zurich Classic of Louisiana.

Leishman was laying 4 in front of the green at the par-5 18th hole when the horn sounded on Friday afternoon due to inclement weather. When play was called for the day, he had to return at 8:00 a.m. CT today to finish the hole and the round. Alas, the Aussie couldn't salvage par to tie the course record. But the bogey was barely a stain on an incredible round, especially when you consider where his focus was in recent weeks. Overall, Leishman hit 15 greens in regulation and converted 10 birdies. Half of the par breakers rolled 10-14 feet conventionally, but he also holed out from lies off the green from 18 yards at the par-3 ninth and six yards at the par-4 16th. At 7-under 137, he's just four swings adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Bernd Wiesberger reached the midpoint of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans in bogey-free, 7-under-par 69-68=137 and sits four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

In the field on a foreign exemption, the Austrian has capitalized. He's split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation both rounds. After finding three birdies on Thursday, he rolled in four today, including respective conversions from 33'8" and 11'6" at the 17th and ninth holes. His appearance at TPC Louisiana could have been defined only as a tune-up for next week's Match Play and THE PLAYERS the week following, but he's making the most of it. His best finish in 12 previous starts on the PGA TOUR is a T15 at the 2014 PGA Championship.

Hudson Swafford added a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-33=66 in today's second round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to post bogey-free, 11-under 133, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Jason Day has since gone one lower to establish the final 36-hole lead.

Swafford created 15 opportunities to score again today, but instead of authoring a highlight-reel eagle, he calmly poured in six conventional birdies, three on each nine. What's more, the only par breaker of any length measured 13'1" at the par-4 16th hole, the antepenultimate of his round. Adding further perspective to his balanced attacked, when he walked off, he ranked outside the top 10 in both strokes-gained splits. It remains to be seen if today's afternoon wave can challenge, but the wind is up a bit as inclement weather from the west encroaches. There is a Tornado Watch for most of southwestern Louisiana through this evening, but it's several parishes from New Orleans.

Francesco Molinari alerted his followers on Twitter today that he's going to compete in next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Match Play Championship.

The commitment deadline for the event is later today. When Tim Clark withdrew earlier this week and Molinari didn't soon follow with news of his own that he wouldn't replace the South African as an alternate, you had a feeling that the Italian would figure out a way to green-light his appearance at TPC Harding Park next week. "Good news, the wrist is better and with the doctors' ok I'm leaving Sunday for San Francisco!," Molinari tweeted. "MatchPlay here we come!" It was just a few days prior to Clark's WD that Molinari tweeted that he was out until mid-May with a wrist injury, but clearly he wasn't considering the possibility of sneaking into the field of 64. Remember, he needs to hit only one ball to collect FedExCup points and official earnings in the Match Play, but he's also guaranteed three matches with the new round-robin format, so we'll have to take him at his word that he's ready.

Seung-Yul Noh withdrew from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans during his second round with a back injury.

The defending champ struck his second shot at the par-5 18th to 96 yards from the hole, and then walked off. He opened the loop with birdies at 10 and 11, but bogeyed 16 and 17 to return to even on the day. He was 1-over through 26 holes. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 104 PGA TOUR starts.
