Charl Schwartzel was eliminated in the first round in the Jones Bracket of the World Golf Championships-Accenture Match Play Championship by Russell Henley, who recorded a 1-up victory.

Thanks to a piping-hot slate in recent stroke-play competition, Schwartzel likely populated many a pick sheet this week, but it was Henley that didn't waver. After opening a 2-up lead with par-birdie, the PGA TOUR rookie didn't let go of the lead despite losing four holes later. He also picked up three wins, one with a biride and two with pars. He advances to face Jason Day in the second round. Due to the considerable delay due to inclement weather, the third round and quarterfinals are scheduled for Saturday. The semis, the championship and the consolation will be contested on Sunday.

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.

Julien Quesne carded a 5-under-par 32-35=67 to take a one-shot advantage after 36 holes of the Volvo China Open.

The Frenchman leads Peter Uihlein and defending champion Alexander Levy by a single stroke after an excellent display at Tomson Shanghai Pudong Golf Club on Friday took him to 8-under 136 at the midpoint. The two-time European Tour winner split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. He also went 4-for-4 in scrambling. Quesne is clearly in a groove after a T4 in Shenzhen last week and was flawless on his opening nine with five pars and birdies at 2, 4, 7 and 9. He added another pair of par breakers at 13 and 14 before swallowing his only bogey of the day at 17. "I played much better today, so that was the main reason for my good score," said Quesne. "I felt very comfortable and hardly missed any shots, so it was a very good day all round. My performance last week definitely helps build the confidence, so I felt good at the start of the week and I’m still feeling good now, but there’s a long way to go."

Hudson Swafford recorded a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-35=67 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Swafford pounced on the par 5s at TPC Louisiana today, going 4-under on the quartet with an eagle and two birdies. The eagle was a gift. After his second at No. 18 landed in the rough left of the fairway and 112 yards from the target, he spun his third back into the cup. (You can view the shot at the link below.) His only other notable conversion traveled 13 feet for par at the par-4 15th. Swafford landed 15 greens in regulation on the round and came to a stop just three swings adrift of the overnight co-leaders.

Sean O'Hair hung up a 7-under-par 30-35=65 for his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, one stroke off the pace of the overnight co-leaders.

O'Hair came out with guns firing at TPC Louisiana today. After finding the fairway at the par-4 first hole, he promptly jarred his approach for eagle from 123 yards. He chased with a birdie-4 at No. 2 and a par-3 at the third. At the par-4 fourth, his approach came to rest in the rough right of the green. No problem as he converted the tricky shot for birdie from 17 yards out. Another par-birdie run followed before O'Hair rolled in a 14-footer for yet another birdie at the par-5 seventh to get to 6-under. He birdied the par-5 11th before finally dropping his only shot of the day with a bogey at the par-4 12th. The 32-year-old later walked off with birdie from 11'11" at the par-5 18th. Overall, he hit 14 greens in regulation and ranked second at last check in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.862.
