An update at SergioGarcia.com explains why the Spaniard elected not to complete the Arnold Palmer Invitational where he withdrew during Sunday's weather delay.

Much was made of Garcia climbing a tree to the right of the fairway at the par-4 10th hole to hit his second -- indeed, it made for great theater -- but very little news surfaced as to why his third from the middle of the fairway went only 31 yards, well less than half the distance to the hole. As we learned today, he aggravated an injury in his left shoulder. It's the same malady that bothered him in Dubai several weeks ago. He added an injury to his left Achilles at Bay Hill. "It wasn’t an easy decision," he said in reference to withdrawing after 12 holes in the finale. "I wanted to keep playing and finish the round and the tournament even though it was not my best day, but soreness grew and decided to pull back to avoid further injuries." Garcia won't play again until the Masters on April 11-14.

World No. 236 Robert Garrigus withdrew during the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational citing a back injury.

This is the 40-year-old's 13th mid-tourney WD in 322 events, first since the 2016 Barclays. He was 2-over thru nine holes, 6-over total, when he called it a day. The Phoenix resident was making his third appearance, first since a best of T64 in 2008.. He opened with a 4-over 74, outbalancing two birdies with four bogeys and double bogey-6.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 29 Satoshi Kodaira carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational to post 7-under 133, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T3, three adrift of clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

The 28-year-old followed his maiden TOUR win at the RBC Heritage with a T32 in Japan and back-to-back missed cuts at THE PLAYERS and the Byron Nelson. He's back on track this week and is solid across all aspects of his game. The six-time winner on the Japan Golf Tour found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.119 strokes off-the-tee and 2.819 tee-to-green. He squared two bogeys at 10 and 16 (3-putt from 45'8"), outpaced by five circles at 1, 11, 12, 15 and 17, all from 10 feet and in. Kodaira recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.859 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 11 Brooks Koepka spun a 7-under-par 33-30=63 in the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational to reach 7-under 133, up 58 places on the live leaderboard to T3, three short of clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 28-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.290 strokes off-the-tee and 2.308 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 5 (failed sand save), smothered by eight birdies, including seven birdie-3s. The FSU product's split featured five conversions from between 11 and 20 feet, adding a hole-out birdie-3 at 14 from 47'9" away. He posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.392 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. Koepka checked in off a T11 at THE PLAYERS, highlighted by a day- and week-tying-low 63 (9-under), that included an albatross on the par-5 16th.

Justin Rose remained dialed in on day two of the Fort Worth Invitational, twirling a 6-under-par 32-32=64, reaching 10-under 130 on the week to stake his claim as the clubhouse leader with play still in progress.

Rose gained 3.204 strokes approaching-the-green in R1 but couldn't warm up the flat stick. It looked like more of the same today as he opened on the back nine with four approach shots inside 15 feet, walking away with four pars. The scoring finally picked up with a trio of birdies at 14 thru 16, all from inside 10 feet. Rose's irons remained dialed in all day, setting up scoring chances inside 17 feet on all but six holes. He would also add a bonus birdie (34'10") at the 6th. If this lead holds it will be his 13th career 36-hole lead/co-lead, first since the 2017 Farmers. Rose is 2-for-12 in converting those into victories, while 10 of the last 11 have resulted in top 5s. Gamers should expect the Englishman to populate his name near the top of the leaderboard all weekend.

Tommy Fleetwood sashayed into contention at the BMW PGA Championship on Wentworth's West Course, his second round 6-under-par 32-34=66 earning him a 36-hole total of 8-under 136 and solo third on the live leaderboard, four swings behind leader Rory McIlroy.

A first sub-70 effort on Fridays at Wentworth for the Englishman and potentially just his second top 20 in seven attempts. He is also on course to better his career-best effort of T6 in 2015. His front nine was flawless with birdies at the second, fourth and sixth. Coming home he gained a shot at the 13th, gave it back at the 15th, then raced home with a hat-trick of par-breakers. He had chipped-in with exquisite skill on the 13th, but when he did so again, at 16, it was outrageous luck; the ball was running fast, hit the pin, dropped. He was more straightforward on 17 (from 5'0") and on 18 (with a superb approach and two-putt).

Chris Stroud played 24 holes at this week's Fort Worth Invitational before withdrawing due to a knee injury. He was 2-over-par at the time of his WD.

The Texan steadied a 1-under-par 35-34=69 during round one. It was a ho-hum round that featured 15 pars, gaining 2.268 strokes putting around the green. He returned this morning and started his second round on the back nine. Stroud got plenty of action in the sand today, finding six bunkers in six holes played, swallowing three bogeys to reach 2-over on the week. He was still well within reach of the cut line which currently sits at Even par. Stroud also withdrew during round two of the Valero Texas Open last month, so it's possible this has been nagging him for some time. He hasn't posted a top 25 since the limited-field Tournament of Champions in January (T11). Gamers should steer clear until he shows any signs of regained form. This is his 13th career mid-tournament WD.

Rory McIlroy blitzed Wentworth's West Course for a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-33=65 in round two of the BMW PGA Championship in England, his 36-hole total of 12-under 132 currently good enough for a four-shot lead on the live leaderboard.

Two behind at start of play, McIlroy suffered early frustration as he missed birdies putts inside ten feet at each of the first three holes. But he got the circle count going with a gain at 4 and added further red numbers at 7 and 9 to turn in 32. He kept his foot on the gas by ticking 12 and 13, holed for birdie-2 at 14 and made it four birdies on the spin by draining a 30-footer at 15. With par 5s to come at 17 and 18 he was looking at building a huge lead but the 2014 champion here couldn't cash in further. Today's 65 matches his lowest lap at Wentworth, set back in 2009 when he posted T5. It's also his first bogey-free round in 26 attempts at the West Course. With conditions soft, McIlroy looks to be in his element and he'll be hard to stop on the weekend.

Satoshi Kodaira accomplished a rare feat on his way around Colonial Country Club, leaving the course with a 4-under-par 30-36=66 to his credit, four off the pace set by Kevin Na.

Kodaira started his afternoon on the 10th tee and started with five pars and a pair of bogeys. His round took a big upswing from there, circling a birdie at the par-4 17th and then adding a huge highlight at the par-5 first. After a 324-yard drive, he holed out from 234 yards for a rare albatross. There have been just 15 of these over the last five seasons and only one this season before today. Kodaira backed it up with a 27'1" birdie splash at the next hole. He'd tack on three more birdies before a disappointing double at the last. He missed a 5'2" putt on that closing one, one of three putts that he missed from inside seven feet today. A recent winner at Harbour Town Golf Links, Kodaira is establishing himself as having an eye for classical design.

Beau Hossler caught fire on day one of the Fort Worth Invitational, tossing together a bogey-free, 6-under-par 31-33=64, placing him just two off the pacesetter Kevin Na.

The Texas transplant signed for rounds of 72-76 in his Colonial debut last year, leading to a missed cut. He's fully healthy this year and his improvement continues to show. Today, he striped 12 (of 14) fairways on his way toward 15 greens in regulation. His highlight on the greens came at the par-4 third hole where he drained a 52'1" birdie bomb. Hossler would also add another long-distance conversion from just outside 36 feet (par-3 13th). This round will match his previous low on the PGA TOUR (the fourth time he's posted a round of 64). The 23-year-old has three career top 10s on his resume but he's still searching for his first victory.

Kevin Na was firing on all cylinders en route to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-32=62 during round one of the Fort Worth Invitational, staking his claim as the clubhouse leader.

Na didn't impress with traditional metrics (9 Fairways, 11 GIR) but he gained 2.267 strokes around-the-green and another 3.282 strokes putting. Starting on the back nine, he opened his day with five pars before turning up the heat. On the greens he dropped in notable putts from 24'7" and 46'6" at the 17th and 2nd holes, respectively. Right after the turn, he stiffed his 252-yard approach to 2'1" for a tap-in eagle at the par-5 first. Na walked off with another highlight, holing out from 92'3" at the closing, par-4 ninth. Making his 12th start at Colonial, this beats his previous-low round which was a 7-under 63 in R1 of the 2007 edition. If this lead holds then it'll be his sixth career first-round lead/co-lead with the 2016 Wyndham being the most recent. Two of those previous leads came here at Colonial and all five were shared with at least one other golfer. He's converted 4-of-5 into top 10s.

In-form Lucas Bjerregaard thrashed a bogey-free 7-under-par 31-34=65 in the first round of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth in England, opening up a one-shot lead over Dean Burmester and Darren Fichardt.

It's a further shot back to Rory McIlroy and English trio Matthew Fitzpatrick, Sam Horsfield and Richard Bland. Here's one for #Teamcurrentform. Bjerregaard came into the event after T5 in the Rocco Forte Open and T6 at the China Open. Contrast that with his course form which shows three missed cuts out of three with his last four rounds over the West Course reading 82, 73, 76, 74. He made a mockery of those numbers today with a string of birdies spread across his afternoon lap. Going out, the Dane birdied 2, 4, 7 and 9 to turn in 31. Further gains at 12 and 16 took him level with the two South Africans in T1 and he secured the solo lead with a walk-off birdie. It's the second tournament in a row he's ended Thursday as the first-round leader having shared top spot with Ryan Evans after an opening 65 at the Rocco Forte Open.
