J.B. Holmes provided an update to his followers on Twitter regarding his status following an ankle injury suffered late winter.

Holmes wrote: "Rehab is going well but it looks like I am done for the year. I want to make sure I am 100% before I get back out there. Thanks for the support." As we've pointed out before with the new wraparound schedule beginning in October, distinguishing between "year" and "season" is going to be impossible without confirmation, but we need to keep the door open that the implication is that he's out only for the season. Holmes ranks 232nd in FedExCup points, so it would make little sense for him to burn starts now instead of saving as many as he can for a Major Medical Extension in 2013-14.

Jonas Blixt turned in a pair of 4-over-par 74s at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, missing the cut by seven strokes.

Blixt found only 10 (of 28) fairways and 16 greens in regulation en route to his fifth consecutive MC. He erased four birdies with 10 bogeys and a double. At 138th in the FedExCup standings and fully exempt only through this season, the 31-year-old has some work to do to enjoy the same perks in 2015-16 that he has since breaking onto the PGA TOUR in 2012. He'll try again at next week's AT&T Byron Nelson Championship. Other notables that missed the cut at Colonial today include: 142--2006 champ Tim Herron; Sangmoon Bae; Daniel Berger; James Hahn; Sean O'Hair; Ryan Palmer ... 143--two-time champ Kenny Perry; John Senden ... 146--2011 champ David Toms ... 147--Jason Kokrak ... 148--two-time champ Corey Pavin ... 153--1987 champ Keith Clearwater.

Adam Scott snapped out of his funk with a bogey-free, 4-under-par 31-35=66 in today's second round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

The defending champ striped 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation at Colonial Country Club today. It's his lowest aggregate in 26 rounds this season. He connected for four birdies, including a round-long strike from 30'4" at the par-4 second hole. Scott parred the entire back nine before coming to rest at 2-under 138, eight strokes off Kevin Na's 36-hole lead. At last check, Scott's strokes gained: tee-to-green for the day measured 5.085, but he registered -0.531 in strokes gained: putting. But hey, every step forward counts. Given his recent form, we should both take nothing for granted on the weekend and embrace whatever he yields.

Overnight co-leader Kevin Na backed up his opening 64 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to post 10-under 130, good for outright possession of the 36-hole lead.

At the time he signed his card, he owned a two-stroke lead over Ian Poulter, who was in the opposite draw. The American split nine (of 14) fairways, hit 14 greens and lassoed five birdies, including a 10-yarder from just off the putting surface at the par-4 14th hole. His longest conventional conversions measured 25'5" and 22'4" at Nos. 10 and 13, respectively. Once again, however, Na bogeyed the par-4 18th. It's the site of his only two dropped shots this week. The 31-year-old will enter the weekend in pursuit of his second PGA TOUR victory. This is his 288th start.

World No. 1 Rory McIlroy won't be around for the weekend at the European Tour's flagship event after carding a 6-over-par 36-42=78 at the BMW PGA Championship on Friday.

Should we be totally surprised? The Northern Irishman has had a gruelling schedule both on and off the course recently and there was nothing in the tank at Wentworth today. He hit only nine greens in regulation, was just 3-for-9 in scrambling and finished at 5-over 149 which looks set to be four swings too many. Lacklustre turned to completely out of synch after the turn as he dropped five shots between the 10th and the 16th following a series of loose swings to give himself no chance of making the cut. A birdie at 17 stopped the rot but a messy bogey at 18 put an end to his misery. This is McIlroy's first missed cut on the European Tour since his home Irish Open last June, the event he heads to next. He told Sky Sports straight after his round, "Disappointing, obviously, but it's a weekend off which I probably need and I can get ready for next week."

Francesco Molinari added a 3-under-par 35-34=69 to his opening 65 to post the halfway lead of 10-under 134 at the BMW PGA Championship.

The Italian wobbled early in Friday's second round at Wentworth but finished with a pair of birdies to maintain his two-shot lead over the field. Molinari was bogey free in round one but made two in the first three holes today before clawing them back with par breakers at 4 and 6. After seven straight pars he produced a late spurt by circling birdies at 14, 17 and 18 to get to double digits under par, two clear of Argentine Emiliano Grillo. Last week's Open de España runner-up split 11 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation. He's missed just five all week.

With a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, Jordan Spieth shares the overnight lead with Kevin Na, Boo Weekley and Ryo Ishikawa.

Spieth walked off with a zero-putt six-yarder for birdie at the par-4 18th hole. Prior to it, he buried five birdies, four of which from outside 11 feet. That set included conversions from 24'10" at the par-5 first hole and 22'2" at the par-4 10th. Overall, the 21-year-old found seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation. Both of his strokes-gained split resided north of 2.615 at last check. This is a personal low in nine rounds of competition at Colonial.

Ryo Ishikawa spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, finishing with a share of the clubhouse lead.

The Bashful Prince joins Kevin Na and Boo Weekley atop the leaderboard, but Ishikawa was the first to emerge out of the afternoon wave at Colonial Country Club. He found only six (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, but navigated the course without a blemish while connecting for six birdies. The set featured three from outside 10 feet, including a walk-off 3 from 29'1" at the par-4 ninth hole. Ishikawa also holed out for birdie from off the green seven yards away at the par-4 17th. This is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 62 at the Wyndham Championship nine months ago.

Boo Weekley crafted a bogey-free, 6-under-par 32-32=64 in his opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial, good for a share of the clubhouse lead with Kevin Na.

The 2013 champ rolled his rock today. He found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation en route to six birdies, five of which from outside 12 feet. Weekley's longest taped 24'6" and 25'11" at the 14th and fourth holes, respectively. He also saved par from 14'10" at the par-3 13th to retain a clean card. At last check, the 41-year-old led the field in strokes gained: putting at 5.875. In his post-round interview on Golf Channel, Weekley acknowledged that he woke up on Wednesday with a stiff back. We should all play golf so well at less than 100 percent.

Kevin Na fashioned a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in today's opening round of the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial to snare sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Na has been playing exceptionally well in stroke-play event of late, so it's no surprise that he found a low one with preferred lies in play today. He converted birdies on half of his scoring opportunities, including rolls from 21'8" and 18 feet at the 11th and second holes, respectively. His only miscue occurred at the par-4 18th where he squared a bogey after landing his approach in a greenside bunker. This is his lowest aggregate since he closed out regulation with the same at last year's Memorial before losing in a playoff.
May 21 - 3:49 PM

Francesco Molinari posted a 7-under-par 33-32=65 to move into a two-shot lead after the opening round of the BMW PGA Championship in England.

Playing in the tougher afternoon conditions, the London-based Italian shot seven birdies and kept a bogey off his card to leapfrog Robert Karlsson at the top. Molinari is something of a course specialist at Wentworth having made the top 10 in each of the last three years and today's score matches the 65 he shot in round three when T7 last year. The Ryder Cup star also came into the event on the back of a second place in last week's Open de España so it's hardly a surprise to see him leading the way.

Padraig Harrington withdrew from the BMW PGA Championship early in round one after failing to shake off a shoulder injury.

Following a bogey at the first and a par at the second, the Irishman felt he couldn't go on and shook hands with playing partners Shane Lowry and Branden Grace. The three-time major winner had earlier pulled out of yesterday's Pro-Am after suffering discomfort in his left shoulder on Tuesday night following a gym session. Harrington was hopeful he'd be okay, telling the Irish Examiner on Wednesday, "Working on the principle I’ve never pulled out of an event injured, I believe I’ll make it. I’m an optimist. I was doing a gym exercise and it was a little bit unstable, there was a little bit of a niggle but I kept on doing it. I hit shots after the gym yesterday and it stiffened during the night and I struggled to sleep with it. I got up this morning and it’s what most people would call ‘a frozen shoulder’." We'll await a further update.
