Tiger Woods roared to the top of the pack, claiming the lead at the Arnold Palmer Invitational with a 6-under-par 33-33=66 in the third round and improving to 11-under 205.

Woods snapped his ugly streak of three bogeys to end the second round with a par save from 11'1" on the opening hole and was off to the races from there. His first birdie came at the par-5 fourth from 8'7", and he added birdies from inside four feet on the sixth and seventh holes before making the turn. He started his inward nine with a birdie from 15 inches on the par-4 10th, but dropped his only stroke of the day on the par-4 13th when he went from a fairway bunker to a greenside bunker and couldn't convert the sandie. A 17'5" birdie on 15 set the stage for him to join Justin Rose in the lead with an eagle from 19'10" on the par-5 16th. As others crumbled around him, he calmly parred the final two holes to post the clubhouse lead. He will try and claim his eighth title in this event in Sunday's final round.

Overnight leader Jon Rahm kept his foot on the gas with a 4-under-par 32-35=67 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, grabbing a piece of the 36-hole lead with Billy Hurley III at 11-under 131.

The ASU standout making his first start as a professional is showing no signs of nerves. On day one he flashed his brilliance on the greens and today he gained 3.831 strokes tee-to-green. Most notable were back-to-back iron shots that he stuck to inside five inches for tap-in birdies. The first was a 138-yard tee shot at the par-4 third and the second was from 168 yards at the par-4 fourth. Rahm is showcasing a versatile game, carding just two bogeys through his first 36 holes as a professional golfer. Hurley III and Rahm are three clear of the field as we head into the weekend at Congressional Country Club.

Webb Simpson coasted to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-35=68 during round two of the Quicken Loans National, reaching 7-under 135 at the midpoint.

The Wake Forest product split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 17 greens in regulation. It was that ball-striking that put him in position to score throughout the day. His flat stick had other plans, as he splashed home just one putt from outside six feet, a 14'9" birdie roll at the par-4 11th hole. Despite the lack of lengthy putts made, Simpson walked off the course gaining 0.681 strokes putting, which is fantastic when you compare it to his 2015-16 baseline of -0.331 strokes per round. That same weapon (the putter) will be the wildcard that determines his fate over the weekend.

George McNeill has withdrawn from this week's Quicken Loans National with a back injury, he was 6-over through 27 holes at the time of the WD.

McNeill is having an interesting season, to say the least. He is now 6-for-18 with a pair of DQs and a WD. He opened the week with a 4-over-par 36-39=75 where he traded two birdies with four bogeys and a double. He started on the back nine today and swallowed another double bogey early at the par-4 11th. McNeill circled three birdies before reaching the 18th tee box. From there he found a greenside bunker, then water, and ultimately carded a triple-bogey 7 before walking off the course with the back injury. Gamers should steer clear of McNeill in all formats until he can show some semblance of form.

Arriving on the heels of three straight missed cuts, Rickie Fowler righted the ship with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the weekend at 6-under 136.

Fowler entered the week ranked first in bogey avoidance and you could see why today. He opened on the back nine and saved par from 7'10" (twice) and 36'11" in his first four holes. His lone bogey came at the par-4 14th hole where he could only advance his ball 40 feet out of the rough after an errant tee shot. It was his first bogey of the week. Fowler gained 3.501 strokes during his round today, and 87 percent of those came on his approach play (17 greens in regulation). Fowler is currently two off the pace set by Vijay Singh and in great position entering the weekend.

Hall of Famer Vijay Singh bombarded the back nine of Congressional Country Club en route to a 5-under-par 35-31=66 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader at 8-under 134.

The 53-year-old is not known for his work with the putter (121st in strokes gained putting) but he got the flat stick working today. He rolled in seven putts from outside six feet, including five from outside 10 feet. The longest was a 15'8" birdie splash at the par-4 fifth hole and he walked off the course gaining 2.912 strokes with the putter today. From holes No. 5 through 17, Singh played his ball at 8-under (eight birdies, five pars) but ended on a sour note by finding water at the par-4 18th, swallowing a bogey to wrap up the day. The Life Member has just one top 25 on the season, a T6 at the Honda Classic, but if his putter stays hot over the weekend we could see another one this week.

Robert Garrigus survived a double bogey to sign for a 2-under-par 36-33=69 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National to grab a very early stake on the clubhouse lead at 6-under 136.

Garrigus arrived as a course horse and he's digging into that course history bank to get into contention yet again. On the day, he landed 13 greens in regulation, but gained 2.927 strokes approaching-the-green, so his iron play was better than raw GIR numbers would indicate. On the greens, he splashed home five putts from outside six feet, including a 20'1" birdie blast on the par-4 11th hole. Through two rounds, he currently ranks ninth in the field in regards to strokes gained putting.

With a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in Friday's second round, Henrik Stenson moved into a share of the lead with Raphael Jacquelin at the BMW International Open in Germany. EDIT: Late in the day Kiradech Aphibarnrat made it a thee-way tie for the lead.

Stenson arrived at 11-under 133 through 36 holes following a bogey-free lap of Gut Larchenhof, a course where he's previously finished runner-up twice. The Swede, who pulled out of last week's US Open with "minor neck and knee issues", started fast with birdies at 10, 12 and 13 before adding another at 16 to turn in 32. He splashed further red at 1, 4 and 7 to match Jacquelin's halfway lead. For the second day running, Stenson his 12 (of 14) fairways while he's missed just 3 greens over his opening two rounds. Today, he needed just 28 putts, six less than in his day-one 68.

Prior to the start of the second round, Jason Gore withdrew from the Quicken Loans National, citing strep throat as the reason.

Gore opened his week with a birdie-free, 5-over-par 38-38=76. He carded three bogeys and a double. He was off his game in all facets, losing 4.079 strokes tee-to-green and 1.904 strokes putting. Gore entered the week ranked 133rd in the FedExCup standings, so his work is not done if he wants to make his way back to the FEC Playoffs for a second straight season. Given the nature of this illness (strep throat), we should expect no long-term implications and treat him as normal the next time he tees it up.

Raphaël Jacquelin tacked on a second-round 4-under-par 34-34=68 to his opening 65 to post 11-under 133 after two rounds of the BMW International Open in Germany, good enough for the joint clubhouse lead with Henrik Stenson. EDIT: Late in the day Kiradech Aphibarnrat made it a thee-way tie for the lead.

The Frenchman has made just a single bogey through 36 holes, that coming on the par-3 8th today, and continues to thrive on Gut Larchenhof's gettable par 5s. He birdied all four in round one and registered circles again at 3, 7 and 13 today. Jacquelin picked up his other shots at 6 and 12. When he signed for his 65, the four-time European Tour winner was a shot clear of Henrik Stenson but the Swede produced a late birdie to join him in top spot. Earlier, play was suspended for 48 minutes from 08:02 to 08:50 local time due to a threat of lightning.

Wesley Bryan blitzed Congressional Country Club with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 to kick off his week at the Quicken Loans National, placing him two strokes off the round one leader, Jon Rahm.

The Web.com phenom is making his tournament debut at Quicken Loans National this week, but had zero troubles getting comfortable. He striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 13 greens in regulation. It was his flat stick that really did the damage, though, which is no surprise for gamers who have been following him on the Web.com Tour. The most notable putt was an 11-footer to save par at the par-4 11th hole. Bryan needed just 26 putts to make his way around Congressional today. The trick-shot master is playing with no PGA TOUR status at the moment, but it's hard to imagine it stays that way for long given his 2016 performance across all tours.

Making his first start as a professional, Jon Rahm ransacked Congressional Country Club to the tune of a 7-under-par 32-32=64 to stake claim of the early round one lead at this week's Quicken Loans National.

Much like a baseball player after using a donut in the on-deck circle, Rahm has to feel like Congressional Country Club is a cakewalk after taking on Oakmont last week. He opened his scoring with a 26'9" birdie blast on the par-4 12th hole. Two holes later he showed the diversity in his game by landing a 181-yard approach to 18 inches for a tap-in birdie. The ASU product would continue to dial it in from long distance on the greens, splashing home two more putts from 27-to-30 feet before round's end. It's unlikely to see this performance continue on the greens, but the previously top-ranked amateur in the world is certainly proving he belongs on the big stage as he makes his first start as a pro. In limited PGA TOUR action, Rahm had posted rounds of 66s twice, so this goes in the record books as a new low round. Not a bad way to start your career.
