David Hearn closed out his second-round, 1-over-par 36-37=73 with birdies on his last three holes to make the cut on the number at the RBC Canadian Open.

Hearn lost in the playoff at the John Deere Classic two weeks ago, so he's been in form, but it's impossible to understand the kind of pressure the small contingent of Canucks feel at this tournament. After Thursday's 70, he hit only 10 greens in regulation today en route to six bogeys. He grinded out five birdies overall, including a run from 12'3" at the fourth hole. However, that wasn't as impressive as conversions from 20'9" and 47 feet to end his round, especially with the opportunity to play the weekend in the balance.

William McGirt crafted a 5-under-par 31-35=66 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage, earning a piece of the overnight lead.

We've stated it here before, but it happened again today. McGirt found another gear with his putter despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation. He connected four birdies beginning at the second hole, the last three of which measuring 11 feet, 14'9" and 20'11", respectively. He made the turn with another birdie conversion at 9, this time from 11'6". After a bogey-6 at 15, his only blemish of the round, the North Carolina native rolled in a par save from 12'4" at 16, and then holed out for birdie from a bunker 14 yards out at the par-3 17th. At last check, his strokes gained-putting split, which doesn't include the jarred bunker blast, sat at a gaudy 4.757. He arrived at Harbour Town ranked 32nd on the PGA TOUR in SG-P, but has just two top 25s in 14 starts.

With a 5-under-par 31-35=66 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage, Scott Langley shares the clubhouse lead.

Since a solo third at Copperhead five weeks ago, Langley is 0-for-2. That mini-drought figures to end at Harbour Town where he hit 12 greens in regulation and circled seven birdies today. He holed six of them on the front nine, but the only of notable distance measured 17 feet at the par-3 14th. He also salvaged a par from 11'1" at 3.

Steve Marino turned in a 1-over-par 36-36=72 for his opening round of the RBC Heritage.

Today's loop of Harbour Town marks his first live action since he missed the cut in México five months ago. While we could speculate that he's still dealing with an injured left knee, there hasn't been any news to indicate why he's been away. Marino hit only eight greens in regulation today, but still managed four birdies, including conversions from 12'11" and 15'5" at the 16th and fourth holes, respectively. He got to 2-under at one point, but closed with bogeys on three of his last four holes, all as a result of missing the green in regulation after a poor drive. At least check, his strokes gained-putting split sat at 2.712.

Greg Chalmers withdrew from the RBC Heritage during his opening round due to a back injury.

The lefty split the expansive fairway at the par-4 18th hole, his ninth of the round, and then walked off. He was 5-over-par through eight holes with no par breakers, three bogeys and a double. It's just his third mid-tournament WD in 349 PGA TOUR starts. It drops him to 8-for-14 on the season. He started the week slotted 109th in FedExCup points.

Matt Kuchar spun a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his opening round of the RBC Heritage and assumed outright possession of the clubhouse lead.

Once again, he shook off the previous week's disappointment. He hit 14 greens and circled five birdies, including conventional conversions from 23'7" and 17'8" at the 13th and second holes, respectively. He poured in a walk-off five-yarder from the fringe for his final birdie at the par-4 ninth. Of course, we'll await what happens on Sunday as the final rounds have been his nemesis of late. In his last five starts, he's closed with 74, 74, 75, 72 and 74, the last of which at the Masters. The positive spin is that he's putting himself in contention time and again, so the theory is that it's only a matter of time before he slams the door, but gamers will settle for a respectable conclusion over the fade.

GolfChannel.com reported today that Jarrod Lyle is planning to return to competition at the Web.com Tour's Price Cutter Charity Championship on Aug. 7-10, not the Midwest Classic two weeks prior.

Rex Hoggard cited Lyle's manager, Tony Bouffler, as his source for the scheduling. (On Sunday, we relayed news from the Herald Sun in Australia of the earlier date.) Lyle is expected to tee it up for three consecutive weeks and burn through his remaining rehab starts. Whatever actually happens, it's great news that he's full steam ahead on his competitive comeback.

Jason Day's withdrawal from this week's RBC Heritage stems from continued discomfort in his left thumb.

Day ended a six-week break at the Masters following his victory at the Match Play due to the injury. He tied for 20th after surviving the cut on the number. He'll now rest for another three weeks before returning to competition at THE PLAYERS on May 8-11. "I think it's all good but after having to miss so long last time I didn't want to take any unnecessary risks," he said. "I am confident it won't be a long term issue."

Garrick Porteous turned professional today.

Porteous will make his debut at this week's Maybank Malaysian Open. He missed the cut at Augusta National by eight strokes (12-over-par 76-80=156). "It was a huge honor to play my final event as an amateur at the Masters, but I am so excited to finally be turning pro," he said. As a result of his decision, the 2013 British Amateur champion is no longer exempt into the U.S. Open. He concluded his amateur career slotted seventh in the World Amateur Golf Ranking.

Jason Day has been removed from the published field of this week's RBC Heritage.

He shared 20th place at the Masters in what was his first start since winning the Match Play due to an injured left thumb. Day has logged only four starts this season, so he seems destined to land at the membership minimum of 15. Yet, he's currently 19th in the FedExCup standings.

Carlos Ortiz finished off his second Web.com Tour win of 2014 with a final-round 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the El Bosque Mexico Open.

Ortiz bagged seven birdies to just three bogeys in his final navigation of El Bosque GC, ending the tournament at 13-under 275. He entered this week second on the Web.com Tour money list, and has wrestled that spot away from Alex Cejka with this title. Next on his list will be the battlefield promotion straight to the PGA TOUR that comes with three wins in one season. Considering his first win was just two starts ago at the Panama Claro Championship, he's putting off some serious heat.
