Guan Tianlang reached the midpoint of the HP Byron Nelson Championship in 7-over-par 70-77=147 and will miss the cut.

The streak ends at two. The 14-year-old finally showed that he's human. After a tidy opener in which he traded two birdies with two bogeys, he hit just 10 greens in regulation in the second round en route to five bogeys -- all consecutively beginning at the 14th hole -- and two doubles. His lone highlight among today's pair of birdies was a conversion from 18'9" at the par-3 13th hole.

Webb Simpson soared the up the leaderboard early in round two of the TOUR Championship and then held on late to post a 3-under-par 31-36=67, good for a share of the 36-hole lead alongside Justin Thomas and Paul Casey, all entering the weekend on 7-under 133.

Simpson was locked in from the start today, picking up four birdies in his first seven holes, including one at the difficult par-4 opening hole. We knew it was his day when an errant tee shot bounced off the top of an out-of-bounds fence and ricocheted back into prime position to attack the green. However, it all went downhill at the par-4 13th, as he blasted one into the trees off the tee and failed to get his (attempted) chip out back to the fairway. It resulted in a double bogey but also had lasting effects on his final five holes, missing the fairway on three of his final four drives. On the bright side, Simpson sits at first in the field this week in terms of strokes gained approaching-the-green. He will be happy to end today's round and hit the reset button before he readies for the weekend.

World No. 16 Paul Casey fashioned a 3-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 7-under 133, up one place to T1 and matching the 36-hole clubhouse lead of Justin Thomas. UPDATE: With play completed, Casey is T1, tied with Thomas and Webb Simpson.

The 40-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.143 strokes off-the-tee and 0.325 around-the-green, but gaining 0.752 approaching-the-green. He was bogey-free 4-under thru 11 holes, circling Nos. 3, 6, 7 and 10, before back-to-back bogey-5s at 12 and 13 (failed scrambles), completing his scoring with birdie-3 at 16. The Englishman's split included four from between seven and 11 feet, recording 1.692 putts per GIR and 1.580 SG: Putting, taking 28 total putts. He's currently No. 1 in SGP with a cumulative 4.041.

World No. 4 Justin Thomas carded a 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of the TOUR Championship for a two-day tally of 7-under 133, up five places to T1 and the new 36-hole clubhouse leader. UPDATE: With play completed, Thomas is T1, tied with Paul Casey and Webb Simpson.

The 24-year-old walked off with a 5'6" eagle-3, the first eagle of the day at the par-5 18th. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, the latter is the best of day thus far in GIR. The Alabama product gained 1.018 strokes off-the-tee and 2.298 strokes approaching-the-green, currently No. 1 in SG: OTT with a cumulative 3.407. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 14 (failed sand save), offset by the eagle and three circles at 5, 6 and 13 (from 13'8"), posting 1.733 putts per GIR and -0.065 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.

World No. 20 Patrick Reed fired a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the TOUR Championship to post 6-under 69-65=134, up 15 places on the live leaderboard to T2, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Justin Rose and the low round of the day thus far. UPDATE: With play completed, Reed is T4, one shy of a trio of 36-hole leaders, while his 65 remained the low round of the day.

This is the 27-year-old's fourth straight appearance with a best of T19 on debut in 2014. Today's lap was his 13th, brushing aside a previous-best 67 in R1/2014. The Augusta University product arrived at 23rd in the FedExCup standings and has opened the Playoffs with T20 as defender, T6 at the Dell, and 65th (of 70) and the BMW. He landed seven (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 0.831 strokes tee-to-green though losing 0.737 around-the-green. The Texan squared a lone bogey-4 at hole 9 (failed scramble), camouflaged by six circles at 4, 6, 8, 13, 15 and 18. His split featured two conversions from between 25 and 31 feet, walking off with his long of the day from 30'4" at the par-5 18th. Reed posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 2.737 SG: Putting with 25 total putts.

Nino Bertasio thrashed his second straight 6-under-par 32-33=65 at the Portugal Masters, enjoying a bogey-free lap of Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in round two and taking a one-shot lead over Lucas Bjerregaard and Marc Warren after 36 holes.

The Italian was playing in the final group Friday and set the new mark thanks to six birdies and 12 pars. World No. 409 started his afternoon round with a pair of pars and then moved to double digits under par with a burst of four birdies in six holes, those gains coming at 12, 14, 16 and 17. Bertasio stayed one behind with a run of six pars but made it a three-way tie with a birdie-2 at 6 before adding a go-ahead birdie at 7. With two closing pars he ensured his position as outright leader with 36 holes to play. The 29-year-old's last experience of a halfway lead came at the Challenge Tour's 2015 Irish Challenge. On that occasion, he kept his effort going to the finish before losing a playoff to Tom Murray.

With a bogey-free 7-under-par 32-32=64 in round two, Marc Warren matched the low lap of the day and joined early clubhouse leader Lucas Bjerregaard in a tie for first place after 36 holes of the Portugal Masters.

Afternoon starter Warren cruised to 11-under 131 thanks to five birdies and an eagle. The Scot also had a piece of the halfway lead in this event 12 months ago before finishing T12 so will want to cash in better on his flying start this time. Starting at the 10th hole today, Warren ticked 11 and then made a surge with a birdie-eagle burst at 16 and 17. For the second day running, he posted red numbers at 2 and 5 before joining Danish star Bjerregaard at 11-under with birdie-2 at 8. The 36-year-old came into the event struggling at 173rd on the Race to Dubai after a string of missed cuts this season but did show a flicker of form with T14 in last month's Made In Denmark.

Lucas Bjerregaard thrashed a bogey-free 6-under-par 31-34=65 in his second round at the Portugal Masters, reaching 11-under 131 at halfway and taking a two-shot lead in the clubhouse.

With scoring conditions still good at Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course, former winner Shane Lowry, England's Eddie Pepperell and South African George Coetzee all posted the early number of 9-under. Bjerregaard, who had opened with a 66 on day one, hit that mark with a burst of four birdies in five holes (4, 5, 7 and 8 on his front nine). The Dane then became the first player to hit double digits under par with a go-ahead birdie on the par-5 12th and doubled his advantage with another circle on the par-5 17th. Bjerregaard is clearly a big fan of this track having finished T12 and T9 the last two years and returned on the back of a top 10 at the Omega European Masters in Switzerland on his last start. Gamers who took note of those converging trends are sitting pretty although there are several players in the afternoon wave who could still displace him as the 36-hole leader.

Joint-overnight leader George Coetzee tacked on a 2-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 64 to reach 9-under 133 after 36 holes of the Portugal Masters, currently good enough for a share of the clubhouse lead with Eddie Pepperell.

Both Coetzee and Pepperell finished in the top five at last week's KLM Open in the Netherlands and the pair have carried that good form to Dom Pedro Victoria Golf Course in Vilamoura. It was more a morning of consolidation for the South African, who could only pick out three birdies on his early lap. His first came at No. 2 but a string of pars along with bogey-5 at No. 6 meant he reached the turn still on 7-under for the tournament. Coetzee birdied the 10th for the second day running to get his score going forward again and found a final circle of his round by ticking the par-3 16th. On the live leaderboard, he's a shot behind Lucas Bjerregaard, who still has five to play.

Brooks Koepka coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 32-34=66 during the opening round of the TOUR Championship, just two off the pace set by early leader Kyle Stanley.

The Florida State product entered the week 9th in the FedExCup race. It appears he is glad to be back in the South on bermudagrass as he peppered 14 greens in regulation en route to a four-pack of birdies, without dropping a shot along the way. It wasn't stressfree, though, as he saved par from the 7-to-10 foot range on three occasions. That was good enough for 2.165 strokes gained putting at the time he signed his card. Koepka finished T18 in his 2018 TOUR Championship debut and is making his first return visit this week.
Sep 21 - 5:29 PM

Daniel Berger brought the noise in round one of the TOUR Championship, cruising to a 4-under-par 33-33=66 to find himself two strokes shy of early leader Kyle Stanley.

Berger gained 1.439 strokes off-the-tee today but found just 10 greens in regulation from there. It was his strong short game that glued the round together, most notably a 22'9" par-saver at the 13th. The flat stick wasn't done yet, though, as he walked off the course with a 13'11" eagle splash that plummeted into the hole to help him reach 4-under on the day. Making his third appearance at East Lake, the Florida State product is looking to improve upon his already steady resume that includes finishes of T12 and T15 here. This certainly helps as it beats his previous best at East Lake by two strokes.
Sep 21 - 5:11 PM

Kyle Stanley breezed through East Lake Golf Club en route to a 6-under-par 32-32=64 during round one of the TOUR Championship, staking out his claim at the early clubhouse leader on Thursday afternoon.

The Clemson product split 11 (of 14) fairways and peppered 14 greens in regulation. That was good for 1.958 strokes gained off-the-tee and 2.632 strokes gained on approach. That kind of performance is nothing out of the ordinary for Stanley, but his short game was also smooth today, draining a 37'3" birdie bomb at the 4th, holing out from 13'1" (fringe) for birdie at the 12th, and then sinking an 18'4" birdie splash at the 15th. Stanley is making his tournament debut this week but had no trouble figuring things out today. This goes in the books as his low opening lap of the season and second lowest R1 of his career (10-under 62 at 2012 Farmers). If this lead holds it will be the third first-round lead/co-lead of his career.
