Patrick Reed ripped TPC Deere Run for a 8-under-par 32-31=63 in his second round of the John Deere Classic to set the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 12-under 130.

And that includes a bogey today. Going off in the first threesome off the 10th tee, Reed sandwiched an eagle hole-out from 37 yards at the par-5 17th with seven birdies, three of which disappearing from outside 11 feet. The longest of the set measured 19'5" at No. 5, but he also poured in a par save from 26'6" at 12. He's played his last 26 holes in 13-under.

Ben Martin experienced a day to remember in the opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans after which he signed for a bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62.

Martin is fresh off a T3 at Harbour Town, so his game travels. He hit 15 greens in regulation and poured in 10 birdies en route to the course record and personal low on the PGA TOUR. (Eight before him, including Andrew Svoboda in the morning wave, had shared the previous low of 64 at TPC Louisiana.) Somewhat amusingly, Martin connected four sets of birdie-birdie-par on his first 12 holes. Four of the eight birdies dropped in from beyond 10 feet, the longest measuring 26'6" at No. 5. He then holed his ninth birdie of the round from 19'6" at 13. The final par breaker was arguably the most impressive in that he chipped in from 18 yards at the par-3 17th. At the time he signed his card, his strokes gained-putting clip sat north of 4.030. Martin will sleep on a two-stroke lead and with a smile on his face.

Andrew Svoboda torched TPC Louisiana for a bogey-free, 8-under-par 34-30=64 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans, good for outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

This was an incredible round of golf. Svoboda hit 15 greens in regulation and poured in eight birdies, six of which on his inward nine. The set featured conversions from 19'8", 24'6" and 12'7" at 1, 17 and 18, respectively. He didn't miss inside 20 feet! At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip sat at 3.157. Today's score goes in the books as his career low in his 33rd PGA TOUR start, and he's the eighth to match the course record.

Peter Hanson motored to a 7-under-par 33-32=65 in his opening round of the Zurich Classic of New Orleans to steal outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Hanson is making just his eighth start of the season devoid a top 30 in a full-field, stroke-play event. At 149th in FedExCup points and not far removed from a back injury that interrupted his schedule in 2013, he's not necessarily popular in our world. That may have changed today. The Swede hit 12 greens and limited the damage to a lone bogey at the par-4 first hole where he accepted a penalty for an unplayable lie off the tee. Elsewhere, he connected birdies at Nos. 11-13, the last dropping from 15'1", and then went birdie-birdie-birdie-eagle beginning at the par-3 third where he holed out from off the green eight yards away. He then connected on a 22-yarder at 4 and a conventional conversion from 12'10" at 5. However, Hanson saved the best for last when he jarred his approach from 183 yards at the par-4 sixth for eagle. The cherry on top is that today's aggregate matches his career low on the PGA TOUR.

Shaun Micheel is scheduled to compete in this week's WNB Golf Classic on the Web.com Tour.

Two months ago, Micheel learned that he had blockage of 99 percent of his right coronary artery. After having a procedure to alleviate the problem, he traveled to South American and finished T52 at the Chile Classic. Out since, he alerted followers on Twitter on April 17 that he was back in the hospital for more treatment: "Finally out of the OR. Doc fixed the RCA and Circumflex along w/2 more arteries. Hoping it holds...tired of hospitals!" On Wednesday, he learned that he gained entry into the Texas stop on the secondary circuit. At the time he tweeted the following, he was first alternate: "Heart surgery on Thursday and getting on an airplane right now for Dallas. Medical technology is amazing."

In an update at ESPN.com, Tiger Woods' agent, Mark Steinberg, shared that the world's top-ranked golfer is recovering as planned following surgery to heal a pinched nerve in his back on March 31.

"[Woods is] doing a little bit more and more each day," Steinberg said. "He's getting to the point of light chipping and putting and the doctors and trainers seem to be pleased with where he is. He is on schedule but we don't know what that schedule means. I don't know when he intends to be playing competitively. But I expect it to be this summer. I know that's a wide range, but as the weeks go by we'll be able to pinpoint an approximate time. It's still a little early for that. Nothing that has gone on from the day of the surgery until today gives me any pause to amend what I said then. I know that's broad and vague but we can't pinpoint a specific time until we're further along. ... This is about the next 10 or 15 years, this is not about the next 10 weeks. This is not about targeting any specific tournament. If he needs to wait one or two or three extra weeks he will. He's thinking about this very, very long term."

At 8-under-par 34-30=64, Brooks Koepka shared medalist honors at today's open qualifier for the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Koepka birdied half of the holes at LaTour Golf Club in Mathews, La., to offset a lone bogey at the par-3 eighth hole. Having exhausted all of his seven allotted sponsor exemptions, he's relegated to four-spotting to pursue Special Temporary Membership for which he's only seven non-member FedExCup points shy. To fulfill the objective, he needs to finish no worse than solo 64th at TPC Louisiana. David S. Bradshaw also co-medaled today with a bogey-free, 8-under 33-31=64 that included an eagle-3 and six birdies. Dustin Morris finished alone in third at 7-under 32-33=65 with an eagle-3, six birdies and a bogey. The final berth into the tournament proper went to Garrett Osborn, who survived a four-way playoff. He completed regulation in 6-under 32-34=66 with an eagle-3, five birdies and one bogey. The field at TPC Louisiana is now complete at 156.

Matt Kuchar splashed in from the greenside bunker on the 72nd hole to secure a one-stroke victory at the RBC Heritage.

At last! After three consecutive close calls, Kuchar finally got his. He was nearly perfect on the front nine with six birdies for a 6-under 30 before coming in at 34 on the back and post a 64. He was bogey-free and flushed his tee ball to 51 inches at the par-3 17th, but promptly three-jacked for bogey. It seemed to be just another chapter of disappointments, especially when he landed his approach at the last 19 yards short and in the sand. But the golf gods finally acquiesced when his blast landed softly and curled in for a closing birdie and 11-under-par 273. He started the day four strokes in arrears of 54-hole leader Luke Donald, who settled for runner-up honors. While Kuchar would have eventually qualified for the PGA Championship, today's win clinches that berth.

Lee Westwood breezed to a seven-stroke victory at the Maybank Malaysian Open.

Westwood posted 18-under-par 65-66-71-68=270 for an outright wire-to-wire triumph over a trio of runners-up in Nicolas Colsaerts, Louis Oosthuizen and Bernd Wiesberger. The Brit missed 17 greens in regulation, but limited the damage to three bogeys and a double. He was bogey-free in the finale at Kuala Lumpur Golf & Country Club. "It’s a golf course that suits my game," Westwood said. "It’s very tight in certain areas. I played well, I putted well, and the short game is good." This is his first victory anywhere since the 2012 Nordea Masters. It also secures a berth in this summer's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Luke Donald blitzed Harbour Town Golf Links for a 5-under-par 35-31=66 in the third round of the RBC Heritage and enjoys a two-stroke lead over John Huh with 18 holes to play.

Donald got things started early with a 23'2" eagle on the par-5 second, but alternated two birdies with three bogeys on the rest of his front nine. He was blemish-free on the back, gathering four more birdies on his way to the clubhouse. In addition to the eagle, he had three other birdie conversions from between 14 and 20 feet. His irons were on point, landing 14 GIR for the second consecutive round, and he is tied for second with 72.2 percent for the week. The Englishman has experienced no shortage of success in his recent visits to Hilton Head Island. He's cracked the top three in four of his last five attempts to slip on the tartan jacket, but has yet to emerge with a win.

Kevin Na completed 36 holes of the RBC Heritage in 6-over-par 72-76=148 and missed the cut by two strokes.

After trading two birdies with three bogeys in the lid-lifter, Na went 0-for-11 in par-breaker chances in the second round, which he concluded on Friday. It's just the second MC in his last nine starts, a run that has included three top 10s and another three top 25s. Other notables that failed to survive include: 147--2006 RBC champ Aaron Baddeley; Roberto Castro; Cameron Tringale ... 148--2012 RBC champ Carl Pettersson; 2002 RBC champ Justin Leonard; Hunter Mahan; Marc Leishman; Tom Watson ... 149--1999 RBC champ Glen Day ... 150--five-time RBC champ and all-time earnings leader at the tournament, Davis Love III; Hideki Matsuyama ... 153--1984 RBC champ Nick Faldo ... 154--Russell Henley; Will MacKenzie. The third round began at 12:20 p.m. ET with golfers grouped in threesome off split tees. The leaders are scheduled to go off the first tee at 2:20 p.m.
Apr 19 - 12:52 PM

Ben Martin backed up his opening 69 at the RBC Heritage with a 3-under-par 33-35=68 in his second round to post 5-under 137, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Martin was alone atop the leaderboard and bogey-free in the round until incurring a bogey-5 at the ninth hole, his last of the loop. Prior to it, he rolled in four birdies, including conversions of 14'1" and 12'8" at the 13th and fifth holes, respectively. The PGA TOUR sophomore -- his rookie season was 2011 -- is a Clemson product, and the RBC is the only TOUR event in South Carolina, so there's some synergy in play as he chased his first victory this weekend.
