Zach Johnson failed to go back-to-back at the John Deere Classic, losing in a five-hole playoff to Jordan Spieth.

Johnson began to run away with the tournament with four birdies to just one bogey in his first eight holes, but hopped on the par train for much of the back nine. He finally got on the board with a birdie on the par-5 17th, but a bogey at 18 dropped him into a tie with Spieth and David Hearn at 19-under-par 265. ZJ signed for a 3-under 68 in regulation. On the last playoff hole -- the par-4 18th -- he rolled in a long conversion from the fringe; alas, it was for bogey since he rinsed his approach after his tee ball came to rest behind a tree. He had a reasonable chance to win outright on the same hole as the second hole used in the playoff -- the order was 18-18-16-17-18 -- but his birdie run from 10'5" burned the right edge. The bright side is that Johnson will head to The Open Championship with his best finish of the season.

Kevin Chappell added a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to touch 8-under 132 at the midpoint and share the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

He's the fourth to wedge his way atop the leaderboard from the late-early draw, and he's the third non-winner among the bunch. This is Chappell's 133rd PGA TOUR start. He covered two bogeys with five birdies during today's lap around The Old White TPC. His only notable conversion dropped in from 12'2" at the par-4 14th hole.

Danny Lee chased his opening 63 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in today's second round to reach the break in 8-under 132, good for a piece of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Chad Collins and Bryce Molder beat him to the aggregate and the trio is unlikely to sleep on the lead, but none will complain about his position entering the weekend. Lee went 5-for-6 in scrambling with one bogey today. He countered with two birdies, consisting of a roll from 25'7" at the par-4 first hole and a three-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 ninth. He also poured in a par save from 10'1" at the par-3 15th where he found a greenside bunker off the tee. This is Lee's 95th PGA TOUR start; he's still in pursuit of his first trophy presentation on the circuit.

Bryce Molder smoothed a 6-under-par 32-32=64 in today's second round of The Greenbrier Classic to post 8-under 132 at the halfway point, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Molder totaled just 12 greens in regulation but connected for seven birdies, six of which from outside 10 feet. The most notables taped out at 21'3" and 35'7" at Nos. 14 and 16, respectively. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 seventh where he bogeyed, but he didn't miss from inside 11 feet all day. At last check, his strokes gained: putting for the round measured 4.591. Molder's only top 10 of the season came in the first event; he tied for third at the Frys.com Open. He arrived at Greenbrier slotted 102nd in the FedExCup standings, but is now in position to record his second PGA TOUR victory in 223 starts as a professional.

Victor Dubuisson tacked on a 1-under-par 35-35=70 to his opening 68 and shares the lead at the halfway mark of the Alstom Open de France.

The Frenchman shares top spot on 4-under 138 with Germany's Martin Kaymer and Spain's Rafa Cabrera-Bello and that trio will battle it out in a three-ball on Saturday with organizers hoping to quicken up play due to the threat of thunderstorms. Dubuisson hit 6-under after making an eagle-2 at 6 when holing his approach from 107 yards but gave those shots back with successive bogeys at 8 and 9. He took outright possession of the lead again with a birdie at 12 but dropped another shot at 17. After a difficult season, this is the perfect time and place for the Ryder Cup star to come back to life and he puts the return to form down to simply playing more golf. The 25-year-old took part in just five tournaments between January and April but this is his third event in a row and seventh since the start of May. Dubuisson hit only half the greens in regulation on Friday but is 12-for-16 in scrambling so far and his famed short game magic could make the difference this weekend.

Chad Collins answered his opening 65 at The Greenbrier Classic with a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in today's second round to post 8-under 132 at the midpoint, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Collins split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation, but he waited until his inward nine for all of his heavy lifting. After going out with eight pars and a bogey, he circled five birdies to cover one bogey on the back half of The Old White TPC. He walked off with a birdie conversion from 25'9" at the par-3 18th hole, but his longest conversion of the day disappeared for par from 26'5" at the par-4 first. This extends his consecutive cuts made streak to a career-best eight, but more importantly, it positions him to make a run at his first PGA TOUR title in his 123rd start on the circuit.
Jul 3 - 12:47 PM

With an up-and-down for par at his 19th hole of the day, Rafa Cabrera-Bello assumed the lead on day two of the Open de France.

After returning to the course this morning to complete a bogey-free 68 which put him in a four-way tie for the lead, the Spaniard advanced his score to 4-under 138 after following it up with a 1-under-par 34-36=70 in round two. That put him a shot clear of Tyrrell Hatton, Jaco Van Zyl, James Morrison, Daniel Brooks and Francesco Molinari. RCB now has an immediate shot at converting another halfway lead after he failed to do so (finished T11) when two clear after 36 holes of last week's BMW International Open. Today he suffered his first bogeys so far, dropping shots at 11, 5 and 7 but birdies at 14, 17, 6 and 8 allowed him to break par for the second day running at the testing Le Golf National which will host the 2018 Ryder Cup. So far, Cabrera-Bello has split just 13 of 28 fairways but he's kept his score intact by going 8-for-10 in scrambling.
Jul 3 - 8:09 AM

Rafa Cabrera-Bello was part of a four-way tie for the lead when the first round of the Alstom Open de France was completed on Friday morning.

The Spaniard was one of 42 players who had to return to Le Golf National to finish off after storms had disrupted play on Thursday and he safely made par at 18 to card a 3-under-par 34-34=68 and join Frenchman Victor Dubuisson, Austrian Bernd Wiesberger and South African Jaco Van Zyl at the top of the pile. Cabrera-Bello, who also had a share of the first-round lead at last week's BMW International in Germany, was bogey free on his opening lap after going 5-for-5 in scrambling. He picked up his birdies at 3, 4 and 15. Maximilian Kieffer was the leader at 4-under when storms halted play on Thursday evening but on his return this morning he dropped three shots in his final two holes to slip back to 1-under. Round two started as scheduled at 07:30 local time.

Danny Lee crafted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic and sits just one strokes off Scott Langley's overnight lead.

Lee is making his PGA TOUR-leading 27th start this week. The travel hasn't affected him negatively as he's fresh off his eighth top 25 of the season (T25, Travelers) and sits 57th in the FedExCup standings. At The Old White TPC today, the 24-year-old hit 15 greens in regulation and found seven birdies, including a pair from 11-14 feet. At last check, he led the field in strokes gained: tee-to-green with a clip of 4.750. His aggregate matches his career low first established at Pebble Beach in the first round of the annual stop on the Monterey Peninsula.
Jul 2 - 6:13 PM

Peter Uihlein withdrew from The Greenbrier Classic during his opening round, citing a neck injury.

Uihlein, who was competing on a sponsor exemption, completed 11 holes in birdie-free 4-over-par. He walked off after a par at the par-4 11th. This is his first mid-tournament WD in 17 PGA TOUR starts as a professional. If he's able, he'll try again at next week's Scottish Open. The European Tour member is 56th in the Race to Dubai standings.
Jul 2 - 4:58 PM

Maximilian Kieffer led the way at 4-under after 14 holes as day one of the Open de France started and ended with a thunderstorm.

A two-and-a-half hour delay at Le Golf National meant the afternoon starters faced a battle to complete their rounds and Kieffer still had four to play when a second storm halted proceedings. He'd arrived at 4-under after mixing six birdies with a double bogey-5 at No.2. His par breakers came at 1, 3, 5, 9, 11 and 12 and helped take him one in front of clubhouse leaders Bernd Wiesberger, Victor Dubuisson and Jaco Van Zyl, who all posted 68s. Two other players, Rafa Cabrera-Bello and Andrew Dodt, sit at 3-under and both had just a single hole to play before the storms returned. A total of 42 players will return to the course at 07:30 local time on Friday to finish up. Round two will also start as scheduled at 07:30.
Jul 2 - 3:10 PM

Jonathan Byrd spun a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63 in today's opening round of The Greenbrier Classic, finishing one stroke off the clubhouse lead.

Oh, them breaks. Byrd tied his career low today and doesn't even share the lead in his own wave. This is the sixth time he's signed for a 63 in 1,088 career rounds on the PGA TOUR. He hit 13 greens in regulation and converted seven birdies. Three of them found the cup from outside 17 feet, the round-long measuring 36'9" at the par-4 10th hole. He also recorded a zero-putt six-yarder for birdie at the par-4 11th. Byrd's greatest test to keep his scorecard clean was fulfilled when he rolled in a five-yarder for par from the fringe at the par-4 seventh. At last check, he ranked sixth in both strokes-gained stats. At 166th in the FedExCup standings, today's success couldn't have come at a better time. Now comes the hard part, to make it count.
