Jeff Overton has been removed from the published field of this week's Wells Fargo Championship.

Overton eliminated the curiosity over his decision on Twitter, writing: "No Charlotte this week, sorry everybody. Back is very sore, going to rest and get 100% for @THEPLAYERSChamp next week!" While options run deep at Quail Hollow, gamers appreciate the advance knowledge. He shared 42nd place at TPC Louisiana on Sunday.

Jason Dufner settled for a 1-over-par 35-36=71 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, giving him a two-day total of 5-over 145 to miss the cut on the number.

A total of 72 (of 121) gofers will play the weekend. The golfers that started in the morning on Thursday appear to have gotten the better end of the weather draw, with seven of the top 10 coming from the AM/PM wave. Dufner was unfortunate to be on the wrong side of the draw this week, but still nearly found his way into the weekend, falling right on the number. The closing blow was a double bogey at the par-4 17th. Other notables to MC include: 145- Si Woo Kim, Bryson DeChambeau, Cameron Smith; 146- Pat Perez; 147- Kyle Stanley; 148- Zac Blair, Luke List, Beau Hossler; 150- Jamie Sadlowski (TOUR debut).

Scott Piercy pushed his way up the leaderboard in round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, styling a 4-under-par 33-33=66, reaching the weekend in a share of the clubhouse lead on 6-under 134.

Fighting through an illness, Piercy pieced together six birdies to camouflage a pair of bogeys. His irons and wedges were dialed in today as he set up seven birdie looks from inside 11 feet and converted on six of them, with none of his circles coming from long distance. The old adage states, "fear the injured golfer," and that certainly applied to Piercy today as he was cleary not 100% as he navigated Colonial Country Club. His lethargic body language perhaps helped him slow down mentally which helped on the greens as he gained 2.344 strokes putting over the field. Entering the week, he'd lost 10.2 strokes putting over his last 3 starts but currently ranks 9th in the field putting this week.

Kevin Kisner cruised his way toward a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, climbing to 6-under 134 after two days, claiming a share of the clubhouse lead with Webb Simpson, Danny Lee, and Scott Piercy.

Kisner was attacking flagstick all day, sticking seven approach shots inside 17 feet, with three landing inside a five-foot radius of the pin. On top of the steady stream of mid-range looks, Kisner also poured one in from 24'5" at the par-4 15th. After the round, he cited his recent struggles with the flat stick (losing strokes putting in each of his last two starts) but at the moment he ranks 5th in the field for strokes gained putting. Despite all the career success he's racked up, this will go in the books as just the second career 36-hole lead/co-lead for the Georgia Bulldog.

Danny Lee blitzed Colonial Country Club with a 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, signing the low round of the day (and week) to soar up the leaderboard, grabbing a piece of the clubhouse lead on 6-under 134.

The Irving, Texas, resident circled seven birdies today, offsetting a lone bogey which came at the par-4 15th when he couldn't save par from just inside six feet. He also let one slip away when he missed a 3'5" birdie attempt early on in the round. To make up for those short misses, he added a pair of bonus birdies from the 24-to-28 foot range. Overall, he gained 2.921 strokes putting on the day to pair with 3.276 strokes gained approaching-the-green. Lee has led/co-led after six rounds on the PGA TOUR, but this would be his first time lead/co-leading at the midpoint. With local knowledge on his side, Lee is one to watch closely over the weekend.

Webb Simpson styled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the second round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, staking out the top spot on the leaderboard at 6-under 134 as the afternoon wave gets underway.

Playing on the wrong side of the weather draw, Simpson didn't let that bother him as he's traded 10 birdies with just four bogeys over the opening 36 holes. The club that generally holds Simpson back is the flat stick but he sank four putts from outside 10 feet today, gaining 2.489 strokes putting at the time he walked off the course. On the week he now ranks 9th in that regard after gaining 1.827 strokes putting on day one. Simpson will likely get overtaken by someone in the afternoon wave, but if he doesn't this will be the second straight year he's found himself at the top here after two rounds. He went on to finish T3 last year after co-leading at the midpoint. There is clearly something that Simpson likes about this classical layout as he's now carded six straight rounds at 68 or better.

Tonu Finau flew up the leaderboard in round two of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, firing a 5-under-par 30-35=65 to rise 55 spots on the live leaderboard up to T7 at 3-under 137 heading into the weekend.

This is deja vu for Finau owners who opened with a 5-over 75 last week at the AT&T Byron Nelson before twirling a 5-under 65 on day two. This time around he was three better in R1 (2-over 72 yesterday) but still did most of his damage in round two. The highlights started early today as he splashed home a 20'10" putt for eagle at the par-5 first hole. His putter would stay hot as he drained five total putts from outside 18 feet today, gaining 2.642 strokes putting. This matches the low round of the week so far and goes in the books as his new personal best at Colonial Country Club (previously a 66 in R3 of 2015 edition).

A short missed putt for eagle at the final hole cost Francesco Molinari the sole clubhouse lead after 36 holes of the BMW PGA Championship; his 2-under-par 36-34=70 gave him a halfway total of 7-under 137.

The early signs were not good for the Italian who has a base near to the Surrey course. He made bogey at the 3rd and 5th, with a birdie in between at the 4th. But the back nine was a much smarter affair, as he ticked the 13th, 17th and 18th, the latter after he left a 8'0" eagle putt in the jaws of the hole. In his first six visits to the West Course he never finished better than T17. Since then he has four top tens in five starts. He's twice had a solo lead at halfway (in 2013 and 2015), but is yet to finish better than T5. He shares the lead with Scott Jamieson and Thomas Pieters, with two and a half hours play remaining after he signed his card.

Camilo Villegas finished 25 holes at 7-over before withdrawing from this week's DEAN & DELUCA Invitational. There is no injury cited at the time.

Villegas opened his week with a 5-over-par 37-38=75 that included just one birdie. The 35-year-old missed two putts from inside six feet along the way. He kicked off his second round on the back nine and kept the short-range misses coming. He missed putts from 5'4", 7'4", and 4'3" over his opening seven holes. Then at the par-4 17th he found water off the tee and later missed two putts from inside five feet. That was the last we saw of Villegas. There was no injury cited at the time of WD, but given the play-by-play directly before the WD, there is a decent chance this is a "frustation WD".

Scott Jamieson overcame a poor start to steer his way into a tie for the lead late in the second round of the BMW PGA Championship; his 2-under-par 35-35=70 gave him a 7-under 137 which equalled the clubhouse lead of Thomas Pieters.

The Scot was flagging early in his round, making a bogey-5 at the 1st and then adding double bogey-6 at the 3rd. There was a brief recovery with birdie-4 at the 4th only to give the shot back at the 5th. His response was magnificent as he ticked six of the next seven holes (6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12). That left him one clear of Pieters on 8-under, but a bogey at the par-4 15th and a failure to birdie either of the par-5 final two holes meant he shared honors with the Belgian. Should they not be passed it would be a third 36-hole lead on the European Tour for Jamieson (including ties, but not including the 36-hole victory he achieved with the weather-shortened 2012 Nelson Mandela Invitational).
May 26 - 12:09 PM

J.J. Spaun withdrew from the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational prior to his round-two tee time. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Spaund twirled a 1-over-par 35-36=71 on day one. Nothing in his stats indicated an injury but most noticable blunder was a missed putt from 18 inches at the par-4 17th. While his opening round was nothing to write home about, Spaun was still inside the cut line at that point. The PGA TOUR rookie was set to tee off at 7:11 a.m. CT this morning but he instead withdrew from the event. We will update if any more details surface.

Thomas Pieters cruised to a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in round two of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, moving a shot clear of Maximilian Kieffer and setting the new 36-hole clubhouse lead of 7-under 137.

The Belgian, whose last 72-hole strokeplay start was T4 at the Masters, picked off four birdies against a single birdie today. Stats are still unavailable on the European Tour website (we've asked them several times) but Pieters said later he hit a lot more fairways and greens in round two and, having had to work really hard for his opening 68, today's 69 was less stressful. It was a fairly simple formula for the big hitter as he two-putted for par most of the way and then scribbled birdies on three of the West Course's par fives (4, 12 and 17). The only other deviations from par were an early bogey at No. 3 and a birdie-3 at 9. Everything looks smooth so far for Pieters although he did say "my back hurts a bit" when discussing his round with host broadcaster Sky Sports.
