Scott Stallings made a run at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial title in the final round with his 4-under-par 29-37=66, but a late double bogey likely ended his chances at a third TOUR win.

He was sizzling at the start of his round, circling six birdies without a blemish on his first nine holes to take the lead at 13-under. He maintained it when he erased a bogey at 10 with a birdie at 11, but his round fell apart at the par-4 15th. After missing the green long, he duffed a chip into a greenside bunker and took two shots to get out before holing a 6'3" putt for a double bogey. Stallings would par in to become the first in the clubhouse at 11-under 269, which is two strokes behind Boo Weekley who has six holes left to play.

Chris Kirk signed for a pair of even-par 71s at the John Deere Classic and missed the cut by two strokes.

Some thrive in shootouts and some die. Kirk arrived at TPC Deere having cashed in 22 consecutive starts dating back to last season, but he'll be forced to start anew at next week's Open Championship. He buried seven birdies against five bogeys, but was stung by a triple bogey at the par-4 18th hole in his opening round where he rinsed his approach and couldn't find the putting surface until his sixth whack. Other notables that missed the cut include: 141--Brian Stuard; Ben Martin ... 142--Kevin Streelman; Billy Hurley III ... 143--Pat Perez; Robert Garrigus; Patrick Rodgers ... 144--Jason Bohn; Jason Allred ... 146--Roberto Castro ... 147--Scott Stallings ... 148--2001 champ David Gossett.

Bud Cauley has crafted a pair of bogey-free, 4-under-par 67s to begin the John Deere Classic.

Cauley remains on fire. After sharing fourth place at Greenbrier on Sunday, he's gone 11-for-11 in scrambling at TPC Deere Run and converted four birdies in each round. Today's set featured rolls from 14'9" and 13'1" at Nos. 4 and 6, respectively. At 8-under 134, the 24-year-old is four strokes back of the 36-hole co-leaders.

Overnight co-leader Zach Johnson turned in 4-under-par 34-33=67 for his second round of the John Deere Classic to post 12-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole lead.

ZJ muscled out today's score. He went just 3-for-6 in scrambling with three bogeys, but compensated with seven birdies. The set included conventional conversions from 14'5", 20'10" and 16'3" at Nos. 8, 13 and 14, respectively. He also circled a zero-putt four-yarder at 10. At the time he signed his card, he co-led the field with 15 birdies at the break. Expect another dark red number on Saturday.

Charles Howell III enjoyed a 3-under-par 35-33=68 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

Well, he had a good time in places, shall we say. CH3 hit only 11 greens in regulation and swallowed four bogeys, but he rolled in three birdies and recorded two eagles. The first eagle came conventionally, sort of. He drove the green at the par-4 14th, and then drilled home the putt from 36'6". (Howell III chased that with a par save from 20'6" at the par-4 15th). Then, after circling a birdie-4 at No. 2, he jarred his tee ball from 132 yards for a hole-in-one at the par-3 third. So, he penciled at least one of every digit from 1-6 on today's card. It's the second time in seven weeks that he's recorded two eagles in the same round (first round, Memorial, eagle-2 and eagle-3). At 8-under 134, he's four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead at TPC Deere Run.

William McGirt backed up his opening 64 at the John Deere Classic with a 5-under-par 36-30=66 in his second round to post 12-under 130, good for outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

McGirt finished three strokes lower than anyone in the late-early draw through two rounds. He went just 3-for-6 in scrambling for three bogeys today, but manufactured eight birdies, including six on his inward nine (the front side of TPC Deere Run). Three of his conventional birdies disappeared from outside 13 feet, the longest stretching 22'1" at the par-3 third hole. He also holed out for birdie from seven yards away and in front of the green at the par-3 seventh.

Tim Clark torched TPC Deere Run for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his second round of the John Deere Classic.

When you open birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie-birdie as the South African did today, you expect to take it deep. So, props to Clark for making that run count. He hit 14 greens in regulation and total eight birdies, the longest measuring 17'2" and 36'8" at Nos. 3 and 4, respectively. At 7-under 135, he's strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Patrick Cantlay did not tee off as scheduled for his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

The rookie was slated to go off in the last threesome off the 10th tee at 2:15 p.m. CT today. He was not replaced in the field probably because no alternates were on site or immediately available. UPDATE: PGA TOUR Media alerted its followers on Twitter that Cantlay withdrew due to a back injury. This gives gamers reason to be concerned as he had been sidelined for months due to a fractured vertebra.

Brian Harman spun an 8-under-par 32-31=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic to join the clubhouse co-leaders.

For a guy with a penchant of going low, it's saying something that this is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 63 at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. Harman went 8-for-16 in birdie chances today and added a five-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 13th hole. His longest conventional conversions stretched 11'4" and 21'7" at Nos. 11 and 12, respectively. But since he two-putted three times from nine feet and in, including a miss from just 38 inches at the par-5 second hole, his strokes gained-putting landed at about 0.000 when he walked off.

Rory Sabbatini lit up TPC Deere Run for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-32=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic, good for a piece of the clubhouse lead.

The South African has done very little in the last couple of months, so today's round is a bit of a surprise. Sparked by a red-hot putter, He went 8-for-16 in birdie chances, two of which on par 5s. Five of his birdies measured longer than 13 feet. The notables stretched 21'10" and 21'11" at Nos. 4 and 12, respectively. At last check, his strokes gained-putting sat at 3.758.
Jul 10 - 1:50 PM

Zach Johnson continued his assault on TPC Deere Run with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic.

He signed his card with the clubhouse lead. ZJ ranks second in all-time earnings at this tournament, yet today's score is his lowest in 43 competitive rounds. He split all 14 fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation en route to eight birdies, including on all three par 5s. The only par breaker that disappeared from outside 10 feet measured 18'8" at the par-3 12th hole.

Todd Hamilton opened the John Deere Classic with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-32=64, good for very early possession of the clubhouse lead.

Talk about capitalizing on getting the last sponsor exemption. Hamilton went out in the second threesome off the 10th tee at TPC Deere Run today. He'd go on to hit 16 greens in regulation and convert seven times for birdie. Three of his rolls stretched longer than 11 feet, the longest measuring 18'9" at the par-3 seventh hole. This was his first round of the 2013-14 season. It's his first red number since a second-round 70 at last year's Open Championship and equals his career low on the PGA TOUR first set in the third round of the 2008 Frys.com Open.
