Jordan Spieth didn't win the Tampa Bay Championship but his final-round of 1-under-par 34-36=70 allowed him to finish inside the top 10 and earn Special Temporary Membership on the PGA TOUR for the remainder of the 2013 season.

Spieth made four birdies and three bogeys in a rather bizarre final round on the Copperhead Course, finishing his week at 5-under 279. His round included short misses for birdie and par, but a dramatic 16-yard hole-out for birdie on the par-3 17th and a seven-foot par on the 18th to finish off his round. He needed $101,295 entering this week to qualify for Special Temporary Membership, which was achievable with at worst a two-way T14. While he already had sponsor exemptions into Houston, Valero and the Byron Nelson, he's now allowed unlimited sponsor exemptions and starts.

Jason Day posted a 3-under-par 31-37=68 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, reaching the midpoint in 8-under 134, good for a share of the overnight lead with Ryan Palmer.

Day continues to struggle with his irons. While he split 12 (of 14) fairways at TPC Boston today, he landed only 11 greens in regulation. He swallowed three bogeys, all on his inward nine, but counterbalanced with six birdies, including five going out. The set featured conversions from 38'9" and 15'2" at the sixth and seventh holes, respectively. He also drilled home a bogey try from 10'11" at the par-4 12th where his approach resulted in a penalty for an unplayable lie.

Jim Furyk spun a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the halfway point in 4-under 138.

His opening 1-over 72 was just his second round of par or worse in his last 22. That dates back to the final round of the U.S. Open. So, it's a relief to know that it was just another blip. Today at TPC Boston, he split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. His notable conversion, if not the shot of the day, occurred at the par-4 15th hole. After striping his drive 283 yards into the fairway, Furyk holed out from 146 yards for eagle. He added another eagle at the par-5 third, this time conventionally, pouring in a putt from 53'2". He also circled three birdies, the longest falling from 16'10" at the par-5 seventh. Furyk walked off lurking just four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Matt Kuchar authored a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

It's been a trying week for Kuchar, his caddie Lance Bennett and their loves ones. In the aftermath of the sudden death of Bennett's wife, Angela, Kuchar said on Golf Channel on Friday that the only time he considered withdrawing was on the first tee in the opening round. Forging on, after turning in a benign, 2-under 69 in the opener, Kuchar went crazy today, burying nine birdies against four bogeys. He hit 13 greens in regulation and possessed a strokes gained-putting clip of 4.650 for the round at last check. Today's notable conversions for birdie measured 28'2", 12'2" and 17'3" at Nos. 15, 3 and 8, respectively, but he also holed a look over bogey from 13'4" at the par-5 seventh. At 7-under 135, Kuchar is just one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Overnight leader Ryan Palmer settled for an even-par 37-34=71 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 8-under 134 at the midpoint, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Oh, golf. Palmer hit two more greens in regulation today (13), but squared three bogeys and a double to neutralize five birdies. He salvaged par just once after missing the GIR. His most notable conversions measured 15'9" and 18'11" at Nos. 5 and 12, respectively, both dropping for birdie.

Russell Knox followed his opening, bogey-free 67 at the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round to post 5-under 137, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Knox' lead will not hold, but that he rallied for a red number after opening with a double-bogey 6 at the 10th hole speaks to his grit. After landing his approach at the par 4 just 20'3" from the cup, he then needed four swipes with the flat stick to move on. Thereafter, he scored bogey-free, picking off three birdies along the way. Two of them ran longer than 10 feet, the highlight stretching 16'5" at the par-4 12th hole. He also poured in a par save from 10'11" at the par-4 sixth.

Brandt Snedeker completed 36 holes of the Deutsche Bank Championship in 6-over-par 72-76=148 and will miss the cut.

Sneds hit 24 greens in regulation, but had a tough time avoiding the big numbers. He squared nine bogeys and a double at TPC Boston. A nifty eagle-2 from just three yards away at the drivable, par-4 fourth today was reason to smile, but it didn't provide a spark. Since he started the week at 71st in FedExCup points, he won't advance in the Playoffs, but surely the more disappointing fact is that his chances of getting a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup team are near zero since he controlled his own destiny. Other candidates are playing well this week and Hunter Mahan won The Barclays where Snedeker missed the cut. It seemed like a match made in heaven given Sneds' affinity for Watson, but the stars did not align and the putts didn't fall.

Pat Perez withdrew during his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship due to a bulging disc.

Well, that was a quick diagnosis. Clearly, Perez has been dealing with this, but we were made privy to it today. He opened on the first hole at TPC Boston and went out in 2-over-par 38 before calling it quits. With an opening 77 already submitted, he was 8-over through 27 holes. He entered the week ranked 87th in the FedExCup standings, so his Playoffs are over.

Chez Reavie is listed in the published field of next week's Chiquita Classic.

The second leg of the Web.com Tour Finals will be contested at River Run Country Club in Davidson, North Carolina. Reavie hasn't played anywhere since missing the cut at the Shriners last October. He would have surgery on his left wrist on Jan. 14. He'll no doubt receive a Major Medical Extension for 2014-15 offering nearly a full season's allotment of starts, so it's good to know that he's ready to return and test the wrist. And who knows, a successful run in the Web.com Tour Finals would offer a safety net that might come in handy in case he fails to meet the terms of his medical.

Ryan Palmer smoothed an 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and will sleep on the outright lead.

And to think that he opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole where he swallowed an unplayable lie following his tee ball left of the fairway. Therefore, it was a highlight show. Palmer converted nine birdies despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation. Three of his par breakers stretched outside 12 feet, the longest measuring 23'1" at the par-4 fifth hole. His most challenging par save measured 10'4" at the par-3 third. He was perfect on 16 tries inside 16 feet. At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip read 5.073, good for tops in the field of 93. Palmer entered the week at 43rd in the FedExCup standings. He shared the 18-hole lead at the PGA Championship and sustained the form to finish T5.

Jason Day fashioned a bogey-free, 34-32=66 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

When he is feeling good, he is one of the most dangerous investments on the PGA TOUR. With last week's T2 at The Barclays, he's assured a place at the TOUR Championship, but at seventh in the FedExCup standings, he's still outside the preferred bubble of the top five. Today at TPC Boston, Day split nine (of 14) fairways, but hit only nine greens in regulation. As his scorecard illustrates, he got up and down every time and was perfect on 17 tries inside 18 feet, including a par save from 12'9" at the par-3 11th. His longest conversion of the round dropped for birdie at the par-3 eighth hole.

Tim Clark has withdrawn from this week's Deutsche Bank Championship due to an elbow injury.

He had to call it quits at the turn of his second round of The Barclays with the same problem. At 38th in the FedExCup standings, Clark will advance to next week's BMW Championship, but the more relevant concern for gamers is his health long-term. Needless to say, if he plays at Cherry Hills, let him go it alone.
