The second round of The Barclays was suspended for darkness at 7:45 p.m. ET.

Mother Nature cooperated today, so only 40 golfers have yet to complete the second round, but all have at least 10 holes in the books. This includes Ted Potter, Jr., who is 1-under-par through 13 and 1-over through 31. The lefty had quite the conclusion to his day. After a triple bogey at the par-3 11th where he rinsed his tee ball and eventually three-putted from six feet, he drilled a birdie from 23'6" at 12 before pouring in an eagle attempt from 19'8" at 13. He's one stroke off the cut line at nightfall. Starting the Playoffs ranked 96th in FedExCup points, he knows that a missed cut could very well end his season. He'll begin his quest to advance when the second round is scheduled to resume at 7:30 a.m. ET on Saturday.

World No. 68 Emiliano Grillo pieced together a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the third round of the Fort Worth Invitational for a 54-hole total of 10-under 200, T2 on the leaderboard and four short of playing competitor and leader Justin Rose, who shot 66. UPDATE: Grillo will play out of the penultimate twosome in R4 with TOUR rookie Corey Conners.

The Argentine is eyeing his second TOUR title in 73 events, joining the 2016 Frys.com Open in his first start as a member and 65 starts ago. At the Frys, he came from two back with 3-under 69 and won a 2-man playoff (Kevin Na). After opening this week in 64-67, the 25-year-old began in solo 2nd, one back of leader Rose. He found nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing strokes off-the-tee and around-the-green, but gaining 1.747 on approach. The Bradenton, Florida, resident squared a lone bogey-5 at 15, slightly outpaced by back-to-back birdie-3s at 9 and 10, both from inside of 14 feet. He posted a pedestrian 1.846 putts per GIR and -1.287 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. Grillo missed three scoring tries from inside of nine feet.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 11 Brooks Koepka crafted a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the third round of the Fort Worth Invitational to reach 10-under 200, up one spot to T2, four short of 54-hole leader Justin Rose, who he'll be paired with in the final twosome on Sunday.

After kicking off with 70 and day-low 63, the FSU product began T3, three back of leader Rose. Playing out of the penultimate twosome, he hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 2.507 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 1.347 off-the-tee, No. 1 in SGOTT with a cumulative 4.122. The 28-year-old had one blemish, a double bogey-7 at 11, camouflaged by five birdies at 1, 8, 12, 14 and 18, two from between 16 and 35 feet. He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.889 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. Koepka is chasing his third TOUR title in 93 events, first since the 2017 U.S. Open 13 starts ago, where he came from one back with 5-under 67 and won by four. Both of his wins (2015 Phoenix Open) have been in come-from-behind fashion.

Overnight leader and World No. 5 Justin Rose tacked on a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the third round of the Fort Worth Invitational for a 54-hole tally of 14-under 196, good for a four-shot lead over Brooks Koepka and Emiliano Grillo.

The 37-year-old is chasing his ninth TOUR title in 315 events, second this season in 10 starts, joining the WGC-HSBC back in October. At the WGC, he was T4 thru 54 holes and came from eight back with 5-under 67 and won by two over three players, including Koepka, who he'll be paired with in the final group tomorrow. After opening with 66-64, the Bahamas resident began with a one-shot lead over playing competitor Grillo and hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, gaining 0.987 strokes approaching and 1.880 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 16, outpaced by five birdies at 1-3, 6 and 11. The Englishman posted 1.692 putts per GIR and 0.582 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. This is his 13th 54-hole lead/co-lead, first since the 2017 Masters, and is previously 3-for-12 converting, one for his last five.

World No. 4 Jon Rahm hung up a 6-under-par 30-34=64 on Moving Day at the Fort Worth Invitational, vaulting 30 places to T4 on 8-under 202, six adrift of 54-hole leader Justin Rose. UPDATE: Rahm will play out of the third-to-last twosome in R4 with Louis Oosthuizen.

After opening his second appearance (T2/2017) in 68-70, the 23-year-old began T34 on 2-under, three short of the overnight top 10 and eight back of 36-hole leader Rose. He hit nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, losing 0.606 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 1.590 off-the-tee. The Arizona State alum squared a lone bogey-6 at 11, outflanked by seven birdies at 1, 2, 6-8, 10 and 17, five from between 11 and 26 feet. He recorded 1.600 putts per GIR and 3.317 SG: Putting with 27 total putts.

Rory McIlroy withstood a terrible start to shoot a third round 1-under-par 37-34=71, earning him a share of the 54-hole lead on 13-under 203 with Francesco Molinari in the BMW PGA Championship at the Wentworth Club in Virginia Water, England.

The Northern Irishman and the Italian will head into the final round four swings clear of Ross Fisher, Branden Grace and Alex Noren. It's not quite head-to-head, but it's not far off and if the wind blows as it did early in the third lap McIlroy might have reason to fear being spooked because he was never comfortable over the first six holes. He made bogey-5 at the third, missing a tiny putt, failed to birdie the par-5 fourth, and then found trees and hit a shank (and a spectator) in making a double bogey-6 at the sixth. All credit to him, therefore, for what followed. He birdied the seventh and the 12th to make some recompense. Molinari had sped clear so McIlroy needed to act and did, circling 16 and 17. But on 18 he hit another spectator, drawing blood, and could only make par. He retains a strong chance of claiming a second BMW PGA Championship title.

Francesco Molinari was supreme in the third round of the the BMW PGA Championship on Wentworth's West Course; his 6-under-par 33-33=66 lifted him to 13-under 203 and a share of the 54-hole lead with Rory McIlroy.

Only two bogeys all week for Molinari and not one since the 10th hole on Friday. But to be flawless on this Saturday was sensational and the rest of the field struggled. He notched seven pars to start with, then closed the front nine with back to back red at eight and nine. He circled 12 and 14 before adding two more at 16 and 17. He now chases a sixth top ten in his last seven starts on the course, and has now had a share of the lead at the end of a West Course round in four of the last six events. He led last year only to be caught by Alex Noren. This time around he will go head to head with Rory McIlroy. They are four clear of three players tied for third.

World No. 20 Webb Simpson stalled out to a 3-over-par 36-37=73 in the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational and at 3-over 70-73=143, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 78 players from a field of 121 made the cut of 2-over 142. Simpson, a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, was highest up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the road. He checked in off a win at THE PLAYERS two weeks ago and had posted back-to-back top-5 finishes at Colonial, including a T3 in 2016 as 36-hole co-leader, and a solo 5th last year as a 36-hole co-leader and 54-hole leader. This is the 32-year-old's second MC of the season in 15 starts (WMPO) and snaps a streak of four straight top-25 finishes. He mustered five birdies against eight bogeys and ranked 104th in SG: Putting (-2.685). Other early exits include: 143- Aaron Wise .. 144- Xander Schauffele .. 145- Jason Dufner; Scott Piercy .. 146- two-time champ Zach Johnson; Patrick Cantlay .. 150- Ryan Palmer .. 153- Cameron Smith.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 323 Seamus Power was disqualified after the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational. UPDATE: Via PGA TOUR Communications in their second-round notes, Power was DQ'd for signing an incorrect scorecard.

As of press time, no reason has been supplied for the DQ, his first in 43 events. The 30-year-old handed in a 4-over-par 37-37=74 after R2, lowlighted by a double bogey-6 and triple bogey-7. Combined with an opening 73 for 7-over 147, he was going to miss the cut anyway, currently five off the projected cut line. The North Carolina resident, who entered the week 122nd in the FedExCup standings, is not in the published field at next week's Memorial Tournament.

Dallas resident Jordan Spieth pieced together a 2-under-par 34-34=68 during the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational, climbing more than 20 spots on the live leaderboard to reach 3-under 137 at the midpoint, seven shots off the pace set by Justin Rose.

The Texas Longhorn landed 13 greens in regulation to set up five birdie conversions. The longest came from 14'3" (fringe) at the par-4 10th while the other four were all from inside seven feet. The lack of putts dropping continues to be the story for Spieth as he ranks 108th in strokes gained putting on the week and 190th for the season. Today, he missed a pair of putts from inside six feet while he missed three chances from inside nine feet on Thursday (including a 2'10" attempt). Despite the balky putter, Spieth sits at T23 on the live leaderboard, seven shots behind the leader Justin Rose. He's always a threat to soar up a leaderboard but he will need to sync up his putting. Having lost strokes putting in 8 of his 10 ShotLink events on the season, it no longer seems like it's just a matter of time.
May 25 - 7:09 PM

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 68 Emiliano Grillo fashioned a 3-under-par 35-32=67 in the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational to reach 9-under 131, up one place to solo 2nd, one short of 36-hole leader Justin Rose. UPDATE: Grillo will play with Rose out of the final twosome in Round 3.

This ties the Argentine's best position thru 36 holes in his 73rd event. He was solo 2nd at the 2017 Arnold Palmer Invite, eventually finishing T7, and was tied 2nd at the 2016 Barclays, where he finished T2. The 25-year-old found 10 (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.051 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 2.180 approaching-the-green. He squared three bogeys at holes 18, 1 and 3, outflanked by six birdies at 10, 11, 13, 17, 2 and 4, three in the 28-33 foot range. The Bradenton, Florida, resident posted 1.455 putts per GIR and 3.364 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in both of those stats thru 36 holes at 1.480 and 7.661, respectively.
May 25 - 7:05 PM

World No. 236 Robert Garrigus withdrew during the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational citing a back injury.

This is the 40-year-old's 13th mid-tourney WD in 322 events, first since the 2016 Barclays. He was 2-over thru nine holes, 6-over total, when he called it a day. The Phoenix resident was making his third appearance, first since a best of T64 in 2008.. He opened with a 4-over 74, outbalancing two birdies with four bogeys and double bogey-6.
