Kris Blanks received positive news regarding what was discovered during his surgery on Thursday, Feb. 28.

In fact, it was what the surgeon didn't find that may have Blanks back inside the ropes sooner than later. No structural damage or tear in any of the soft tissue in Blanks' left shoulder was evident. Dr. Frank Cook cleaned out scar tissue and smoothed down part of a bone to give the golfer more mobility. Blanks may even participate in the Hootie & the Blowfish Monday After the Masters Pro-Am on April 15 if he's feeling up to it. "All in all it’s as good as can be expected, now we just have to strengthen it back up and get ready to go," Blanks said. "It’s just a matter of rehab and recovery, but it will take three or four months until I’m back out there." We'll earmark summertime as a possibility for now. Whenever he returns, Blanks will have three starts on his Major Medical Extension to earn $257,451 and retain status. As a graduate of 2012 Q School, the time he misses now will contribute to another medical in the reshuffle category in 2013-14 if he needs it.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 82 and pre-tourney co-fave Graeme McDowell bogeyed his final three holes en route to a 1-under-par 32-39=71 and at 2-under 71-71=142, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 81 players from a field of 130 pros and two amateurs made the cut on 3-under 141 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. McDowell, a 16/1 outright, opened with a four-birdie three bogey 71 and began his second frame with a 4-under bogey-free first half, circling birdies at Nos. 2 and 6 and eagling the par-5 fifth. He came home in 4-over however, outbalancing birdie-3 at 12 with bogeys at 11 and 16-18. Other notable early exits include: 142- Ian Poulter; Matt Jones; Dominic Bozzelli ... 143- Graham DeLaet; 2012 champ George McNeill; Nick Taylor ... 144- Ryo Ishikawa ... 145- Seamus Power; Camilo Villegas ... 146- Andres Romero; Thorbjorn Olesen ... 150- Brandon Hagy.

First-round leader and World No. 334 Trey Mullinax back-pedaled to an even-par 34-38=72 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 9-under 135, down 10 spots to T11, two back of 36-hole tri-leaders Bryson DeChambeau, D.A. Points, and Bill Lunde.

The PGA TOUR rookie led by one (over Points) with a career-low 63. It was his first 18-hole lead/co-lead in his 15th career start, 12th as a member. The 24-year-old was even-par thru 13 holes on Friday when play was suspended and returned on Saturday morning (with 42 others) to play his final five in even, exchanging birdies at 14 and 18 with bogeys at 16 and 17. After circling nine in R1, he added seven in R2 on just 11 greens in regulation, but cancelled out all of them with five bogeys and double bogey-6 at the 13th just prior to the stoppage.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 1033 Bill Lunde styled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 11-under 133, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Bryson DeChambeau and D.A. Points.

The 43-year-old is making his 142nd career start on the PGA TOUR with one win to his credit, the now-defunct Turning Stone Resort Championship. He won the final edition of the event in 2010, which was played in Verona, New York, coming from four back with 6-under 66 to win by one over J.J. Henry. The UNLV alum's last full season on TOUR was 2015 when he went 8-for-18 with one top 25 and finished 197th in the FedExCup standings. He was 4-under thru 15 holes on Friday when play was suspended and returned Saturday morning to write down three more pars. The San Diego native found 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, circling Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 12.

Past champ and World No. 178 Alex Cejka fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to reach 10-under 134, up 13 places on the live leaderboard into an eight-way T4, one back of co-clubhouse leaders Bryson DeChambeau and D.A. Points.

This is the 46-year-old's seventh appearance with three prior top 25s and one top 10, his sudden-death win in 2015. That remains his lone TOUR title in 337 career starts. At the 2015 edition, Cejka led by one after 36 holes (70-67), T5 thru 54 holes with 75, and joined a 5-man playoff with a closing 69. This is his 11th start of the season with one top 25 among six cuts made, a T14 at the Valspar in his most recent start (68-70-72-69). The Las Vegas resident opened with a five-birdie one-bogey 68 and with lift, clean and place in effect for R2, circled six on 14 (of 14) fairways and 16 greens in regulation. He got 17 holes completed on Friday, returning on Saturday morning to 2-putt the par-5 18th for a walk-off 4.

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. UPDATE: Round 2 resumed as scheduled at 7:00 am Saturday and at completion of play, Points is co-leading thru 36 holes with Bryson DeChambeau and Bill Lunde.

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 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: With second-round play completed on Sat. morning, DeChambeau co-leads with D.A. Points and Bill Lunde.

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.
