Brendan Steele fought back from an early-week quintuple bogey to claw his way back above the cut line, firing a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in round two, reaching 2-under 138 after two days of play at The Honda Classic.

Steele opened on the back nine in round one and found himself at 6-over after passing through the Bear Trap. He circled a quintuple 9 at the par-4 14th after finding water three times. He rinsed another ball at the following hole to record a double bogey at the tricky par-3 15th. Since that rough patch, Steele circled 10 birdies and an eagle to offset a four-pack of bogeys. The 33-year-old showed tremendous resilience and is now safely through the cut line with a clean slate heading into the weekend. On the down side, Steele has signed just one red number in 12 weekend rounds at PGA National.

Paul Waring held a one-shot lead after reaching 12-under through 12 holes of his second round when play was suspended due to bad light on day two of the Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club.

Thursday's early finish due to waterlogging and a delayed start today means this week's European Tour event continues to play catch up and irregular scoring updates on the ET's official website are only adding to gamers' frustration. Waring had posted a 65 on the tougher East course yesterday morning and continued oh the birdie trail with five more today on the West. His set included an opening pair and three straight from Nos. 9-11. A par at 12 left him at 12-under when play was called, a shot clear of clubhouse leader Darren Fichardt and Dean Burmester, who has three holes to finish off. Another South African, Jacques Kruyswijk, was a further stroke back on 10-under. The second round will resume at 7.00am Saturday.

Beginning on No. 10 tee, World No. 88 Ryan Palmer styled a 5-under-par 31-34=65 in the second round of The Honda Classic, tying the low round of the day thus far with Brendan Steele and posting the early 36-hole clubhouse lead at 9-under 131.

With preferred lies in effect for a second straight lap, the 40-year-old began with bogey-5 at 10 (failed scramble) but rebounded for a three-birdie train on holes 13-15, kicking off the run with a 43-footer at the par-4 13th. He squared one more at the par-3 17th, three-putting from 43'5", but then played his final 10 holes in 4-under, circling Nos. 1, 3, 5 and 8, each from seven feet and in. The Texan found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, currently pacing the field in SG: Tee-to-Green at 9.051. He's doing the majority of his work in that category, signing his card at 62nd in SG: Putting (0.591).

Rickie Fowler torched PGA National's Champion Course in the second round of The Honda Classic, signing a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to arrive at the midpoint on 8-under 132, good for solo second on the early round two leaderboard.

Fowler is having déjà vu at PGA National, opening with twin 66s, just like last year. In the 2016 edition, he claimed the title of 36-hole leader with his 132 aggregate before posting 74-71 over the weekend to finish T6 come Sunday night. Today, the scoring start right away, splashing home a 23'11" birdie at the par-4 10th to build confidence. He would maintain a steady putter throughout the round, converting five more putts from outside six feet. Fowler continues to play well at PGA National and should remain in the thick of things over the weekend.

Willy Wilcox opened his week at The Honda Classic with a 6-over-par 37-39=76 before withdrawing ahead of his second round tee time. No injury was cited at the time of the WD.

Wilcox missed the cut at the Waste Management Phoenix Open in his first of three starts on a medical extension. He's down to one start on that Minor Medical Extension after today's WD. Wilcox needs $41,049 or 55.399 FedExCup Points in his next PGA TOUR start to retain his TOUR card. The 30-year-old finished T5 on the Web.com Tour last week (Panama Claro Championship) so his game is not too far off. In his opening lap this week he circled one birdie but also swallowed three bogeys and a pair of doubles. Wilcox is very good at passing along information directly to his fans via Twitter so we will update if any more news pops up about a potential injury.

Prior to his round two tee time, Matt Every has withdrawn from The Honda Classic. No injury was cited, but he was 14-over after day one.

If there was anytime for the Florida Gator to break out of his slump, you'd expect it to happen in his home state. This wasn't the week, though, as he swallowed seven bogeys, two doubles, and a triple in round one while taking on PGA National's Champion Course. This goes in the books as his 16th straight missed cut and gamers can continue to avoid Every until he shows any sign of form.

Darren Fichardt posted a 6-under-par 31-35=66 in round two of the Joburg Open at Royal Johannesburg and Kensington Golf Club in South Africa, good enough for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead of 11-under 132. UPDATE: Fichardt remained clubhouse leader at close of play Friday although Paul Waring topped the leaderboard on 12-under after 12.

The local man was one of 98 players who had to complete their opening rounds on Friday morning after play was suspended Thursday afternoon due to waterlogging. After a further delay, Fichardt finished off a bogey-free 66 on the par-71 West Course and then matched that score on the tougher, par-72 East. The 41-year-old kicked off with a five-foot birdie at No. 1 and then ticked 3, 4 and 6 before taking the lead on his own with an eagle-3 at 8. He made his first bogey of the week at 10 and, after seven pars, made his 24th hole of the day a birdie-4 to set the clubhouse target. That's currently a shot clear of compatriot Jacques Kruyswijk and two in front of defending champion Haydn Porteous. "I haven’t stumbled into this position," said Fichardt. "It’s been a lot of hard work and a lot of perseverance. I have been working hard the past seven weeks and I think it’s starting to pay off."

Branden Grace withdrew from The Honda Classic following a birdie-free, 7-over-par 36-41=77 in round one. There was no injury cited the time of the WD. UPDATE: Grace alerted his fans via Twitter that he strained a muscle in his rotator cuff but expects to return next week.

The South African swallowed five bogeys and a double bogey without circling a single birdie in his navigation of PGA National's Champion Course. It was his third attempt at The Honda Classic, and he's now 1-for-3 with a T71 in 2013 still his best. There was no reason for the WD provided but we'll update if/when that information becomes available. Grace is currently committed to next week's WGC-Mexico Championship where gamers should be ready to jump back on board, unless an injury becomes apparent. UPDATE: Grace alerted his fans via Twitter that he strained a muscle in his rotator cuff but expects to return next week.

Wesley Bryan tore through PGA National’s Champion Course in round one of The Honda Classic, piecing together a 6-under-par 30-34=64 to grab a share of the early clubhouse lead with Cody Gribble.

The 2016 Web.com Tour Player of the Year is making his tournament debut, but did not arrive without course knowledge. Bryan finished T9 at the 2015 Web.com Tour Q-School event held at PGA National. He opened on the back nine today and circled two birdies before the turn to offset his lone bogey which came at the par-4 14th after missing a 5'1" par-saving attempt. After the turn, Bryan leaned heavily on the flat stick, splashing home three putts from 9-to-14 feet, leading to a five-birdie inward nine. If Bryan can hold onto his current co-lead, it will go in the books as his second-career lead/co-lead after any round (co-led after R2 of the 2016 John Deere Classic en route to a T8).

Cameron Percy withdrew during round one of The Honda Classic, he was 2-over thru 11 at the time of his WD. No injury news has been provided at this point.

The Aussie opened on the back nine with a bogey at the par-4 10th. He traded a bogey at the 17th with a birdie at the 18th before making the turn at a respectable 1-over 36. Percy swallowed a third bogey at the par-4 second after finding trouble in the fairway bunker and called it quits after his tee shot on the following hole. The Web.com Tour grad was making his second appearance at The Honda Classic, first since a T71 in his 2013 debut. There was no injury cited at the time of the WD, but we will pass along that information if/when it becomes available.

Making his debut at The Honda Classic, Cody Gribble pieced together a 6-under-par 31-33=64, grabbing the early clubhouse lead on day one.

The lefty arrived on the heels of four straight missed cuts, but you'd never know it by watching today's round. He split 10 (of 14) fairways en route to hitting all 18 greens in regulation. He is the first player in Honda history to land all 18 greens. Gribble walked off the course gaining 4.202 strokes approaching-the-green. His putter was not quiet, either, as he roped in six putts from 9'9" or longer, including a pair from just under 28 feet. If the clubhouse lead holds on by day's end, it will be his second lead after any round on TOUR, with the previous being after R4 of his victory at the Sanderson Farms Championship last fall.
