Dudley Hart is scheduled to compete at this week's Wildfire Invitational on the PGA TOUR Canada.

The event is contested at Wildfire Golf Club in Peterborough, Ontario. Assuming he honors the commitment, it will mark his first sanctioned start anywhere since missing the cut at the 2012 AT&T Pebble Beach National Pro-Am. Hart underwent at least two back fusion surgeries in the last four years. He hasn't played regularly until his 2009 season was cut short at the end of May. Perhaps his appearance at the Wildfire indicates a return to the PGA TOUR this October. Whenever he's back, he'll be equipped with a Major Medical Extension to earn $504,284 and retain status.

Prior to his round two tee time, Bryce Molder withdrew from the Wyndham Championship, putting an end to his 2016-17 PGA TOUR season. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Molder traded three birdies with a five pack of bogeys on day one. He lost 4.135 strokes off-the-tee as he split just five (of 14) fairways while hitting nine of his drives inside the 270-yard mark. The Georgia Tech product would have needed at least a 5-under 65 to have a chance to play the weekend. He would have needed a magical three rounds to vault up to a notable FedExCup number, as he entered the week 186th in the FEC race. Even with a WD, he is projected inside the top 200, which will give him a crack at the Web.com Tour Finals, if this WD wasn't due to a serious injury.

Søren Kjeldsen mastered Sedgefield Country Club in round two of the Wyndham Championship, penciling a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63, catapulting 78 spots up the live leaderboard to sit in a share of eighth place as the afternoon wave takes the course.

Making his tournament debut, it was a ho-hum, 1-under 69 in his opening lap. He appears to have the green surfaces figured out now, splashing home four putts from outside 11 feet today. That was good for +4.125 strokes gained putting on the round. Playing his first season as a PGA TOUR card carrier, the 42-old entered the week 154th in the FedExCup standings, and is projected at 142nd on the live FEC leaderboard. That will give him conditional status and a crack at the Web.com Tour Finals, if he decides to wants keep his talents in the United States for another year. Making his 56th career PGA TOUR start, this goes in the books as a new personal best for Kjeldsen, while also matching Kevin Na for the low round of the day, so far.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, top-ranked and World No. 9 Henrik Stenson tacked on a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 12-under 128, up one spot to the top of the leaderboard and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

If the lead holds, it'll be his fifth 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 170th career start, first since the 2015 TOUR Championship where he finished T2 (63-68-72-72). He's 1-for-4 converting, winning the 2013 TOUR Championship wire-to-wire. The 41-year-old hit 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting 2.510 SG: Approach-the-Green though -0.441 SG: Around-the-Green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 18 (failed scramble), outpaced by five circles at Nos. 13, 15, 4, 5 and 7, all from inside of 13 feet. The Swede recorded 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.669 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Kevin Na rocketed up the leaderboard in round two of the Wyndham Championship, piecing together a 7-under-par 30-33=63 to reach 10-under 130 after 36 holes, two off the early pace set by Henrik Stenson.

Na leaned heavily on the flat stick in his opening-round 67, but today he dialed in his irons and wedges. Before the day was done, he setup eight scoring chances from inside 10 feet, five of those from inside 5 feet. That was good for +4.349 strokes gained approaching-the-green, at the time he signed his card. Making his fourth appearance at Sedgefield Country Club, this is already his third time posting a round of 63 or better at the Donald Ross design (9-under 61 in R3 of 2010 being the best). This doesn't quite match Matt Every's 61 from Thursday, but Na's 63 does go in the books as the co-low round of the Friday morning wave (Soren Kjeldsen).

World No. 277 Johnson Wagner spun a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 9-under 131, up 29 places on the live leaderboard to T5.

This is the Charlotte resident's ninth Wyndham with two prior top 25s and one top 10, a T5 last year (66-68-65-67). His 64 is his lowest lap in 28 rounds, previously 65 (x2). The Virginia Tech alum arrived at 141st in the FedExCup standings, so needed to make the cut -- at least -- to qualify for the Playoffs. After an opening four-birdie one-bogey 67, he's accomplished that part. The 37-year-old landed seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting -0.510 SG: Off-the-Tee but 3.675 SG: Approach-the-Green. He squared bogey-5s at 10 and 18 (failed scrambles), offset by three birdie-3s at 8, 13 and 17, eagle-3 at 15 from 29'2", and a hole-out albatross at the par-5 fifth from 214 yards away. Wagner played the two par 5s at Sedgefield CC in 5-under, which has to be/tie some sort of record. He posted 1.538 putts per GIR and 1.633 SG: Putting, taking 26 total putts.

Hunter Mahan kept his foot on the gas in round two of the Wyndham Championship, carding a 5-under-par 33-32=65 to vault inside the top 5 with a two-day tally of 10-under 130.

Entering the week ranked 197th in the FedExCup standings, Mahan needs a podium finish just to have a chance at retaining his TOUR card and cracking the FedExCup Playoffs. So far, so good, for Mahan who has traded 10 birdies and an eagle with just two bogeys through 36 holes. A hot putter has been the key asset for the Texas resident, who has gained 5.353 strokes putting on the week (6th in the field at the time he signed his card). Mahan is playing the final season on his five-year exemption from winning the 2012 WGC-Match Play, and his game has seen a dip over the last two seasons. The veteran hasn't been inside the top 15 after R2 of an event since the WGC-HSBC Champions in October of 2015.

Johan Carlsson broke the challenge of tournament number one seed Matthew Southgate, winning their second round tie 4-and-2 in the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

Early in the match it didn’t matter that Carlsson threw the second hole away with a double bogey-5 because he made another three winning birdies, plus a conceded one, to take a 3-up lead by the eighth tee. Southgate responded with a winning eagle-3 at 8 and also won the 12th with a birdie-4. But Carlsson was pouring the putts in. Southgate’s birdies at 10 and 15 were matched by Carlsson’s and he couldn’t respond to the Swede’s red numbers at 11, 13 and 16. The Englishman was 5-under through 16 holes, but the Swede progresses. He was approximately 7-under even with that double bogey.

Ernie Els has withdrawn from the Wyndham Championship, citing a rib injury to put an end to his 2016-17 season. He was 4-over thru 27 holes at the time of the WD.

Els entered the week ranked 213th in the FedExCup race, needing a win to crack the Playoffs and keep his full TOUR status. Instead, he opened with a 1-over 71 and started round two with four bogeys and a pair of birdies before the turn. The 47-year-old was playing in the final year of his exemption from the 2012 Open Championship victory. Playing out of the Past Champion category next year, starts won't come as easy, but as a 19-time winner, his options will be a little more abundant than, say, a PGA TOUR rookie who failed to keep his card.

Martin Laird twirled a 4-under-par 33-33=66 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, but a personal issue has forced him to withdraw before the second round.

The Charlotte resident traded six birdies with a pair of bogeys on Thursday to find himself in the hunt. There is no further information on the personal issue that is forcing the WD, but it must be serious since this is his first mid-tourney WD of his career (236th start). At 55th in the FedExCup standings, Laird will have a spot in next week's NORTHERN TRUST, if he chooses to peg it.
Aug 18 - 8:59 AM

Scott Hend cruised Nadarola Bay GC in 6-under-par 31-35=66 to hit the halfway mark of the Fiji International on 7-under 137, in a four-way tie for the lead with Daniel Pearce, Gavin Green and Jason Norris.

The quartet of leaders are two clear of the field after 36 holes and Hend might have been on his own but for a late bogey at the par-5 17th hole, his only error of the day. Earlier he had bounced through the front nine, making an eagle-3 at the par-5 first before ticking 4, 6 and 9. He made birdies at 11 and 16 prior to his bogey and admitted afterwards: "I missed a lot of putts but I still walk off the golf course in a good position." This is the third time he has held a share of a European Tour halfway lead; he is 1-for-2 in converting the win. Only Jeunghun Wang boasts a better world ranking than Hend's No. 93 and the Korean made the cut mark on the line at 2-over. Hend has a good chance to win his third ET title at the weekend.

World No. 9 Henrik Stenson twirled a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62 during round one of the Wyndham Championship, placing him one off the early lead set by Matt Every.

The Swede added this event to his schedule to ensure he reaches the minimum 15 starts required to maintain membership. His flat stick didn't care why he was entered, it came to play. Before his day was done, he'd roll in three putts from the 20-to-21 foot range, gaining 3.96 strokes putting on the round. His always-steady ball striking was reliable, as usual, pelting 16 greens in regulation. Stenson had used this event three times in the past as a springboard toward 15 starts (MC-MC-WD) but none since 2012 when he was just rounding back into world-class form. His fortunes were much different this time around, as this will go in the books as his new career-low round on the PGA TOUR. With Sedgefield boasting soft and receptive greens, he'll need to keep his foot on the gas for three more rounds in order to stay in contention.
