The PGA TOUR rookie qualified for the no-cut money grab at Firestone when he won the John Deere Classic two weeks ago. We'll update you if an explanation surfaces.

The second round of The Honda Classic was suspended for darkness at 6:12 p.m. ET.

The entire late-early draw has completed 36 holes, but all 68 from the opposing wave are far from finished. (All four that have either withdrawn or were disqualified from the tournament were in the early-late.) All in the stranded wave have played at least three holes in the second round, two have as many as 12 in the books. At 8-under-par, Brendan Steele will sleep on a two-shot lead over 36-hole clubhouse leader Patrick Reed. Steele opened his second round with birdies on his first four holes. That stretched was sparked by a roll from 15'4" at the par-4 first hole and extended by a hole-out from a bunker 12 yards away at the par-4 second. His next two birdies disappeared from 8-10 feet. He will return to the tee at the par-3 fifth hole PGA National's Champion Course at 7:30 a.m. ET on Saturday to resume his round.

Brooks Koepka blistered PGA National's Champion Course for a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in his second round of The Honda Classic.

Playing partners Rory McIlroy and Dustin Johnson slammed their trunks today, but Koepka will play on at 2-over 142 thanks to today's 14-stroke improvement. He was outstanding, going 8-for-12 with eight birdies. Five of them traveled longer than 14 feet, including three from outside 21 feet. He even poured in a par save from 11'10" at the par-4 sixth. At last check, his strokes gained: putting measured 6.225 and he ranked second in the field through two rounds.

At 7-over-par 73-74=147, Rory McIlroy will miss the cut at The Honda Classic.

Blame whatever you want, but playing partner Brooks Koepka crafted a 6-under 64 today. Rather, McIlroy just never gave himself a chance to make a run. He missed half of both his fairways and greens in regulation. That led to eight bogeys and two doubles, so the five birdies he holed were far too few to secure a tee time in the third round. This is his first MC anywhere since the Irish Open last June. It's his first MC on the PGA TOUR since the 2013 Open Championship and it's his first official MC in a non-major on TOUR since the 2012 Memorial. The world's top-ranked player will try again at next week's World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship where he'll be a favorite. In fact, given that he won't have to deal with the scheduling snafus at PGA National due to the inclement weather, today's failure may wind up as a net-positive over a two-week period.

Dustin Johnson completed 36 holes of The Honda Classic in 12-over-par 77-75=152 and will miss the cut.

Consider that when DJ signed his card today, he ranked T2 with nine birdies (remembering that the late draw is just beginning its second round) but sat 138th on the leaderboard. Overall, he split 12 (of 28) fairways and hit only 19 greens in regulation. Where he couldn't capitalize on his scoring opportunities, Johnson swallowed six bogeys, six doubles and a triple. It's a disappointing way to open the Florida Swing, especially after a T4 and P2 in his last two starts, but it's a surprise given his record at PGA National where his only payday in three tries is a T46 in 2013. Expect a rebound at Trump National Doral next week where he tied for fourth on the overhauled track last year.
Feb 27 - 4:36 PM

Patrick Reed enjoyed his opening 67 at The Honda Classic so much that he tossed up another in today's second round after which he finished with sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 6-under 136.

Reed opened par-double bogey on the back side of PGA National today, but he righted the ship and played the remainder in bogey-free 5-under with five birdies. Four of those stretched 11-14 feet. At the time he signed his card, he led the field with 12 birdies. And while he's hit only two-thirds of his greens in regulation, that ranked T15 at last check. Reed loves to be a front-runner, but he'll have to remain patient until the cut falls. Given Saturday's brutal weather forecast, there's no telling when he's going to hit his next shot.
Feb 27 - 4:26 PM

Morgan Hoffmann withdrew from The Honda Classic prior to his second round.

Hoffmann opened with a tournament-high, 10-over-par 40-40=80. With play suspended due to lightning at the moment, and because he's in today's late draw, he'd likely only be prolonging an inevitable missed cut. This is his second mid-tournament WD in 65 career PGA TOUR starts. It drops him to 4-for-7 on the season. Hoffmann entered the week slotted 151st in the FedExCup standings, so he's failed to shiff the form that yielded a berth in the TOUR Championship in 2014.
Feb 27 - 12:03 PM

Using his opening 66 on the tougher East Course as a springboard, Wallie Coetsee jumped into the halfway lead at the Joburg Open.

The South African added a 6-under-par 33-32=65 on Royal Johannesburg & Kensington’s easier West layout to reach 12-under 131 at the midpoint. That put him one shot clear of the trio of early clubhouse leaders -- fellow home players Garth Mulroy and Tjaart Van Der Walt along with England's Simon Dyson. Coetsee (no relation to defending champion George Coetzee; note the different spelling) started his second round with a trio of birdies and added another at 6 before giving it back at the next. After seven pars he then burst into a tie for the lead with an eagle-3 at 15 before another birdie at 17 gave him sole possession of top spot. Having so far shot the joint low 18 of the week on the East Course, which is used for both weekend rounds, Coetsee must feel confident heading into the final 36 holes. That said, his performance so far is unexpected given that he's just 2-for-6 in this event and has never finished better than T49. The 42-year-old was T24 in last week's Sunshine Tour event.

First-round leader Nic Henning couldn't keep his surprise Joburg Open challenge going on Friday. So much so that he now looks set to miss the cut.

Having failed to cash in 16 of his last 17 events and not managed a top 20 anywhere since 2010, the World No. 1555 stunned his rivals with a 9-under 62 on Royal Johannesburg & Kensington’s easier West Course on Thursday to assume sole possession of the day one lead. That now looks like a brief moment in the sun after he endured a 6-over-par 40-38=78 on the tougher East Course today to post 3-under 140. His unfortunate lap of the par 72 included six bogeys and a double bogey-6 at 13 against just two birdies. Henning had slipped from leader to T74 when he posted and that was one shot outside the cut line of 4-under.
Feb 27 - 7:07 AM

Simon Dyson toured the tougher East Course in 5-under-par 33-34=67 to be one of three early clubhouse leaders on day two of the Joburg Open.

The Englishman's impressive lap of Royal Johannesburg & Kensington's tougher track elevated him to 11-under 132 at the midpoint. He's currently tied at the top with home South African duo Garth Mulroy and Tjaart Van Der Walt. Dyson opened with a birdie and reeled off three on the spin at 6, 7 and 8. Another par breaker at 10 was wiped out at 12 with his only bogey of the day but he found a final birdie at 17 to assume the joint lead. Dyson's 67 followed on from his 65 at the easier West Course on Thursday. The final two rounds are played on the East so Dyson is in good shape having shown today that he can shoot low there.
Feb 27 - 5:42 AM

Chris Stroud withdrew from The Honda Classic following his opening round.

Stroud turned in a 10-over-par 41-39=80 before calling it quits. He erased one birdie (from 23-and-a-half feet at the par-4 first hole, his 10th of the round) with five bogeys and three doubles. It's his tenth withdrawal in 226 career PGA TOUR starts. It also ends six consecutive paydays at PGA National. Today's aggregate is his highest since a second-round 81 at the 2012 PGA Championship. If an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you.
Feb 26 - 3:54 PM

Jim Herman turned in a bogey-free, 5-under-par 33-32=65 for his opening round of The Honda Classic to assume sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

The Web.com Tour Finals grad was one of the five bounced from the field when the second reshuffle of the season occurred after last week's Northern Trust Open, so perhaps he's connected with a little motivation given that midseason plight. He went 4-for-4 in scrambling at PGA National today, a slate protected with a zero-putt five-yarder for par at the par-4 11th hole. His longest of five birdies traveled 34'8" at the par-4 16th.
