Patrick Cantlay fired a final-round 5-under-par 33-33=66 to cash in on the potential he's flashed dating back to his amateur days in winning the Colombia Championship on the Web.com Tour.

He entered the day tied with Jim Renner and stepped on the eighth hole even par for his round. Cantlay rattled off a birdie-birdie-eagle run beginning on the eighth and added one more blow to the field with a birdie on the par-4 14th. He cruised to a four-stroke victory, with Renner the nearest competitor. Cantlay's win comes a week after he opened the season on the Web.com Tour with a T44 in Panama. It also virtually assures him a spot in the four-tournament race for a 2013-2014 PGA TOUR card, where he will be expected by many to walk away with PGA TOUR playing privileges for 2013-14.

The third round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational is scheduled to begin at 7:00 a.m. ET due to inclement weather forecast later in the day.

The PGA TOUR expects the reasonable threat for thunderstorms to arrive at about 10:00 a.m., so golfers will go out in threesomes off split tees. The final groups are scheduled to commence play at 9:00 a.m., so it could be a long day at Firestone in Akron, Ohio. Hunter Mahan didn't have a long day today, carding a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round. He suffered just one bogey, but absorbed it with six birdies. The set featured conversions from 20'11" at the 11th hole and 26'3" at 13, both par 4s. The 65 matches his low aggregate of the season (third round, WM Phoenix Open). At 4-under 136, he's seven strokes off the 36-hole lead, but the last of 11 inside the top 10 on the leaderboard at the halfway point.

In response to the report at Golf.com that Dustin Johnson has been suspended for six months by the PGA TOUR for violating its substance abuse policy, the TOUR issued a statement denying the claim.

According to GolfChannel.com, the statement reads, "With regard to media reports that Dustin Johnson has been suspended by the PGA TOUR, this is to clarify that Mr. Johnson has taken a voluntary leave of absence and is not under a suspension from the PGA TOUR." Rhetorical gymnastics aside, DJ is sidelined indefinitely. According to Golf.com, he's out a minimum six months. No matter what you want to believe, it's a lose-lose-lose situation for all involved. That includes gamers that are reeling in the wake of it all.

Sergio Garcia authored a putting display in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational en route to a bogey-free, 9-under-par 34-27=61.

Today's performance was as much of a culmination of an extended series of brilliant efforts as any. To say that he was in the zone is not hyperbole. Garcia split only seven (of 14) fairways, but he landed 14 greens in regulation and converted on nine of those looks, all for birdie, including each of his last seven holes. Five of his par breakers measured longer than 13 feet, the highlight dropping in from 25'5" at the par-4 17th hole. His only birdie going out occurred at the par-5 second hole. He one-putted the last 11 holes and took only 23 putts on the day totaling 133'10". At last check, his strokes gained-putting for day read 4.558. Garcia equaled the course record last submitted by Tiger Woods in 2013 and established a career low in PGA TOUR- and European Tour-sanctioned competition. Best of all, the Spaniard is the 36-hole clubhouse leader at 11-under 129.

Fabian Gomez lit up TPC Stonebrae for a bogey-free 10-under-par 28-32=60 in the second round of the Stonebrae Classic to assume the clubhouse lead at 14-under 126.

This goes in the books as the 22nd 60 in Web.com Tour history. There have been five 59s. He started fast, picking up seven birdies on his first nine holes, and then added a trio of birdies on the back nine. As to be expected, his statistics were excellent. He split 12 of 13 fairways, landed 15 GIR and putted to a 1.333 average. Gomez entered the week 36th on the Web.com Tour money list and will likely secure his return trip to the PGA TOUR should he hold on and win this week.

Overnight leader Nick Watney followed his opening 18-pointer at the Barracuda Championship with eight points in his second round to build on his margin.

At the time he signed his card for a 3-under-par 36-33=69, Watney's 36-hole clubhouse lead stood at six points over Jeff Overton. That's virtually nothing in Modified Stableford scoring, but Watney is showing few kinks. He's hit 29 greens in regulation and squared only two bogeys, both in today's round that included five birdies. He's played the par 5s in bogey-free 7-under.

Golf.com reported today that Dustin Johnson is serving a six-month suspension from the PGA TOUR due to a positive drug test.

Golf.com cited a source that said that DJ tested positive for cocaine. The report adds that it's the third time that he's been suspended since 2009. This falls in line with the golfer's reasoning behind Thursday's statement about taking a leave of absence to address personal challenges. It also adds substance to the rumors that have swirled around Johnson for some time. If the report is accurate, he could return to competition in early February. Currently fourth in FedExCup points, he'll likely remain alive in the Playoffs through the BMW Championship despite sitting out. He's currently 16th in the Official World Golf Ranking. Johnson turned 30 years of age in June. He has eight PGA TOUR victories.

Henrik Stenson spun a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

After opening the tournament with a 1-over 71 that featured three consecutive bogeys to close out his opening nine, Stenson was after a spark. Well, he got it. After striping the fairway at the par-4 10th hole where he kicked off his loop around Firestone today, the lanky Swede holed out from 108 yards for eagle. He chased it with a birdie conversion from 18'5" at the par-4 11th and would add two birdies the rest of the way, including a run from 11'8" at the par-4 18th. Only a bogey-4 at No. 14 spoiled an otherwise stellar round during which he hit 15 greens in regulation. Now 3-under 137, he's suddenly five swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Wes Roach smoked-and-mirrored his way to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-34=66 worth 12 points in his opening round of the Barracuda Championship.

Roach hit only nine greens in regulation, but he buried six birdies to finish six points off the overnight lead. He got away with one today, but he can't count on this kind of wizardry throughout the tournament. The rookie has four top 25s this season with a T4 in the other opposite event in Puerto Rico, but he showed up in Reno slotted 157th in the FedExCup standings and 151st in earnings. That's a direct result of missing 11 of 20 cuts.

The PGA of America announced on Twitter this afternoon that Dustin Johnson will not compete in next week's PGA Championship or the Ryder Cup in September.

The governing body operates both events. This merely confirms DJ's implication in his statement today that his leave of absence includes all otherwise obvious commiemtns in the short-term future. We shouldn't expect to see him throughout the FedExCup Playoffs, either. Meanwhile, in response to Johnson's statement earlier today, the PGA TOUR released its own in the following statement: "We have nothing to add to Dustin's statement, but we wish him well and look forward to his return to the PGA TOUR in the future."

Nick Watney came roaring out of the gate at the Barracuda Championship with a bogey-free, 9-under-par 32-31=63 worth 18 points.

He played like the odds-on favorite that he is today. Watney hit 14 greens and converted nine birdies, including on each of the four par 5s. His one-round total matches Jonathan Byrd's tournament record. En route to a T2 last year, Byrd spun an 8-under 64 that featured an eagle and seven birdies against one bogey. Unlike most on site at Montrêux, Watney is already exempt into next week's PGA Championship and his status on the PGA TOUR is locked up for the next two seasons, so he's playing for a spot in the FedExCup Playoffs. He started the week just 124th in points.

Marc Leishman swiped sole possession of the clubhouse lead at the World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational with a 6-under-par 32-23=64.

He's been in a groove for several weeks, so today's success is merely an extension of form. However, given today's news about Dustin Johnson, the Aussie may go in the books as the most forgotten overnight leader of the season. He won't deserve the oversight, but he won't care, either. Leishman landed only 11 greens in regulation, but he converted on eight of those looks. To put some perspective on his precision, all but one birdie measured longer than 10 feet, that a gem from 25'1" at the par-4 17th.
