Jonathan Byrd is not listed in the published field of next week's Tampa Bay Championship.

All expectations were that Byrd would return to competition at this event. He's alluded to it on numerous occasions since having surgery on his left wrist on Oct. 29. UPDATE: A couple of hours after the field was released, Byrd posted the following message on Twitter: "Changed my start to Houston now instead of The Tampa Bay Classic [sic] ...missing a great tournament but need a few more weeks to be ready to go!"

Halfway leader Francesco Molinari threw in a 4-under-par 32-36=68 but now shares top spot with Byeong-Hun An going into the final round of the BMW PGA Championship.

For most of the day, the Italian's robotic tee-to-green play looked set to give him a clear advantage but he started missing fairways late in the round and finished with a bogey and four pars to end up at 14-under with An. The pair are two clear of Thongchai Jaidee. Molinari made birdies at 3, 7, 8, 12 and 13 to peak at 15-under but struggled coming in and couldn't cash in at Wentworth's pair of closing par 5s. He split 10 (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens in regulation, was 3-for-4 in scrambling and took 29 putts.

Boosted by a hole-in-one at the second, Miguel Angel Jiménez carded a 4-under-par 32-36=68 to move into solo fifth at the BMW PGA Championship.

This is becoming routine for the veteran Spaniard. Last week he matched Colin Montgomerie's record of nine by draining his tee shot at the 8th hole in round two of the Open de España. And now he has the European Tour's all-time mark for himself after a 10th ace, three of those coming this season. Jiménez followed his hole-in-one at the 154-yard second with a birdie at three and circled three more par breakers against two bogeys over the rest of his round. At 11-under 206, he's currently four shots behind leader Francesco Molinari.

Tommy Fleetwood holed his second shot at the par-5 4th hole in the third round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth on Saturday.

That dramatic three-shot leap combined with an eagle-3 at the 12th helped the Englishman card a 7-under 31-34=65 and climb up to third place on 11-under 205. "It was 198 yards, 7 iron," Fleetwood told Sky Sports TV. "It was a perfect shot, exactly where I went to hit it." It goes down as the 92nd albatross on the European Tour and is the third in this event (you can watch it here). He hit 12 (of 14) fairways, found 15 greens in regulation and played the par 5s in 6-under.

Try as he might but David Hearn survived the cut on the number at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hearn impressed with a 66 in the opener but blew up for a birdie-free, 5-over-par 35-40=75 in today's second round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and went an astonishing 0-for-14 in scoring chances on Friday. Still sitting pretty despite one bogey on his first 17 holes, the Canadian rinsed his approach at the par-4 18th. He'd roll another back into the water when a chip failed to clear the bank facing the green. Eventually, Hearn coaxed in a 50-inch putt for quadruple bogey to post 1-over 141. As one of 15 tied for 66th place, a second cut of low 70 and ties will occur at the conclusion of 54 holes. With the threat of inclement weather on Saturday, players will go off split tees beginning at 7:00 a.m. CT. The final group is scheduled to begin on No. 1 at 9:10 a.m.

Jonas Blixt turned in a pair of 4-over-par 74s at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, missing the cut by seven strokes.

Blixt found only 10 (of 28) fairways and 16 greens in regulation en route to his fifth consecutive MC. He erased four birdies with 10 bogeys and a double. At 138th in the FedExCup standings and fully exempt only through this season, the 31-year-old has some work to do to enjoy the same perks in 2015-16 that he has since breaking onto the PGA TOUR in 2012. He'll try again at next week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. Other notables that missed the cut at Colonial today include: 142--2006 champ Tim Herron; Sangmoon Bae; Daniel Berger; James Hahn; Sean O'Hair; Ryan Palmer ... 143--two-time champ Kenny Perry; John Senden ... 146--2011 champ David Toms ... 147--Jason Kokrak ... 148--two-time champ Corey Pavin ... 153--1987 champ Keith Clearwater.

Adam Scott snapped out of his funk with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The defending champ striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation at Colonial Country Club today. It's his lowest aggregate in 26 rounds this season. He connected for four birdies, including a round-long strike from 30'4" at the par-4 second hole. Scott parred the entire back nine before coming to rest at 2-under 138, eight strokes off Kevin Na's 36-hole lead. At last check, Scott's strokes gained: tee-to-green for the day measured 5.085, but he registered -0.531 in strokes gained: putting. But hey, every step forward counts. Given his recent form, we should both take nothing for granted on the weekend and embrace whatever he yields.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Na backed up his opening 64 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to post 10-under 130, good for outright possession of the 36-hole lead.

At the time he signed his card, he owned a two-stroke lead over Ian Poulter, who was in the opposite draw. The American split nine (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and lassoed five birdies, including a 10-yarder from just off the putting surface at the par-4 14th hole. His longest conventional conversions measured 25'5" and 22'4" at Nos. 10 and 13, respectively. Once again, however, Na bogeyed the par-4 18th. It's the site of his only two dropped shots this week. The 31-year-old will enter the weekend in pursuit of his second PGA TOUR victory. This is his 288th start.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy won't be around for the weekend at the European Tour's flagship event after carding a 6-over-par 36-42=78 at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday.

Should we be totally surprised? The Northern Irishman has had a gruelling schedule both on and off the course recently and there was nothing in the tank at Wentworth today. He hit only nine greens in regulation, was just 3-for-9 in scrambling and finished at 5-over 149 which looks set to be four swings too many. Lacklustre turned to completely out of synch after the turn as he dropped five shots between the 10th and the 16th following a series of loose swings to give himself no chance of making the cut. A birdie at 17 stopped the rot but a messy bogey at 18 put an end to his misery. This is McIlroy's first missed cut on the European Tour since his home Irish Open last June, the event he heads to next. He told Sky Sports straight after his round, "Disappointing, obviously, but it's a weekend off which I probably need and I can get ready for next week."
May 22 - 12:52 PM

Francesco Molinari added a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 65 to post the halfway lead of 10-under 134 at the BMW PGA Championship.

The Italian wobbled early in Friday's second round at Wentworth but finished with a pair of birdies to maintain his two-shot lead over the field. Molinari was bogey free in round one but made two in the first three holes today before clawing them back with par breakers at 4 and 6. After seven straight pars he produced a late spurt by circling birdies at 14, 17 and 18 to get to double digits under par, two clear of Argentine Emiliano Grillo. Last week's Open de España runner-up split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. He's missed just five all week.

With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Jordan Spieth shares the overnight lead with Kevin Na, Boo Weekley and Ryo Ishikawa.

Spieth walked off with a zero-putt six-yarder for birdie at the par-4 18th hole. Prior to it, he buried five birdies, four of which from outside 11 feet. That set included conversions from 24'10" at the par-5 first hole and 22'2" at the par-4 10th. Overall, the 21-year-old found seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. Both of his strokes-gained split resided north of 2.615 at last check. This is a personal low in nine rounds of competition at Colonial.
May 21 - 9:20 PM

Ryo Ishikawa spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

The Bashful Prince joins Kevin Na and Boo Weekley atop the leaderboard, but Ishikawa was the first to emerge out of the afternoon wave at Colonial Country Club. He found only six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, but navigated the course without a blemish while connecting for six birdies. The set featured three from outside 10 feet, including a walk-off 3 from 29'1" at the par-4 ninth hole. Ishikawa also holed out for birdie from off the green seven yards away at the par-4 17th. This is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 62 at the Wyndham Championship nine months ago.
