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.

Bud Cauley spun a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-31=65 in the final round of the Hotel Fitness Championship to claim a one-stroke victory over Colt Knost at 20-under 268.

With this victory, Cauley has locked up his full status for the 2014-15 PGA TOUR season via the Web.com Tour Finals. He would have enjoyed conditional status, finishing 143rd in the FedExCup standings, but he is now in much better shape. This is the second consecutive year he dropped down to the Web.com Tour Finals after failing to keep his PGA TOUR card, having graduated last year as well. The Alabama prodcut circled seven birdies, with four of those coming on par 5s, at Sycamore Hills GC in the finale. While he didn't rank inside the top 10 in any notable statistical categories, the key to his week was likely limiting the mistakes. He tied for fourth with just five bogeys, and nothing worse, for the week. He also shared sixth with 21 birdies and his two eagles were tied for second. He will now set his sights on winning the Web.com Tour Finals money list in order to be exempt from all reshuffles on the 2014-15 PGA TOUR.

Patrick Reed swallowed a third-round 11-over-par 38-44=82 in the third round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to miss the 54-hole cut on the number at 5-over 218.

Reed was unable to find a single birdie at TPC Boston, squaring three bogeys and four double bogeys. Joining him without a tee time for the final round are Brendon de Jonge (218), Andres Romero (219), Scott Brown (220), Matt Jones (223), Freddie Jacobson (224) and Matt Every (227).

Russell Henley took control of the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 6-under-par 34-31=65 in the third round and assumes the lead at 12-under 201.

Henley caught fire on Sunday, circling seven birdies and surrendering just one bogey at TPC Boston. Three of his birdies stood above the others. They fell from 30'5" on the par-3 eighth, 19'10" on the par-4 13th and 12'6" on the par-4 17th. The Georgia Bulldog has been a spotty player this season. While he won The Honda Classic, he has just one other top 10 to go with 12 missed cuts. He's developing the reputation of a player that can get hot in brief spurts, so he is a legitimate threat to close out his third PGA TOUR win in just his sophomore season on TOUR. He began the week 62nd in the FedExCup standings and would crack the top five with a victory.

Hennie Otto cruised to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-34=68 in his final round of the 71° OPEN D'ITALIA and recorded a two-stroke victory.

The 38-year-old South African held the outright lead after 36 and 54 holes at Circolo Golf Torino's La Mandria Course before closing out his week at 20-under 268 with an eagle and 23 birdies against three bogeys and one double. It's his third European Tour title and first since 2011. Otto's breakthrough victory occurred in the Italian Open at Castello di Tolcinasco Golf & Country Club in 2008. David Howell took runner-up honors today two strokes adrift. The Englishman blistered the host course for an opening eagle-3 and seven birdies en route to a bogey-free 63. And in his last bid to give Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley reason to get excited, Scotland's Stephen Gallacher finished alone in third place three swings back following a bogey-free 65.

Robert Garrigus carded a pair of 2-over-par 73s at the Deutsche Bank Championship and missed the cut on the number.

While the result is the same, not all MCs are alike. Take Garrigus, for example. After sitting 3-over on the round through 13 holes, he holed out for birdie from the fringe 18 yards away at the par-4 fifth. He then drilled a 33-footer for par at the par-4 sixth to retain momentum. Birdies at 7 and 8 ensued (the latter from 10'7") to create a buffer entering his last hole of the round. Alas, after landing his approach into the par-4 ninth 44'2" from the cup, Garrigus four-putted for double bogey. Not only did it put an end to his chances at TPC Boston, but he's done in the Playoffs after arriving 88th in points. Of the 92 golfers that completed 36 holes, only 12 missed the cut. The others: 146--Brendon Todd; Harris English ... 147--2010 champ Charley Hoffman; Kevin Na; Stuart Appleby; Justin Hicks ... 148--Brandt Snedeker; Ángel Cabrera; Erik Compton ... 149--Ryo Ishikawa ... 150--Ben Martin.

Brendan Steele buried a walk-off birdie putt from 27'7" at the par-5 18th hole in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to survive the cut on the number.

Steele was down and up all day en route to an even-par 36-35=71. He traded four birdies with four bogeys and reached the midpoint in 3-over 145. While the final birdie was the most compelling, he also converted attempts from 45'9" and 25'6" at Nos. 9 and 16, respectively. Steele's Playoffs life hinged on that last one, though, as he entered the week ranked 76th in FedExCup points. The heavy lifting has just begun, however, as 80 golfers scored 145 or lower. So, another cut of low 70 and ties will fall once 54 holes are complete. It's the second time in as many weeks that the MDF provision is invoked. Prior to The Barclays, the last time it was needed in the Playoffs was at the 2008 Deutsche Bank Championship.

Jason Day posted a 3-under-par 31-37=68 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship, reaching the midpoint in 8-under 134, good for a share of the overnight lead with Ryan Palmer.

Day continues to struggle with his irons. While he split 12 (of 14) fairways at TPC Boston today, he landed only 11 greens in regulation. He swallowed three bogeys, all on his inward nine, but counterbalanced with six birdies, including five going out. The set featured conversions from 38'9" and 15'2" at the sixth and seventh holes, respectively. He also drilled home a bogey try from 10'11" at the par-4 12th where his approach resulted in a penalty for an unplayable lie.
Aug 30 - 6:23 PM

Jim Furyk spun a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to reach the halfway point in 4-under 138.

His opening 1-over 72 was just his second round of par or worse in his last 22. That dates back to the final round of the U.S. Open. So, it's a relief to know that it was just another blip. Today at TPC Boston, he split 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation. His notable conversion, if not the shot of the day, occurred at the par-4 15th hole. After striping his drive 283 yards into the fairway, Furyk holed out from 146 yards for eagle. He added another eagle at the par-5 third, this time conventionally, pouring in a putt from 53'2". He also circled three birdies, the longest falling from 16'10" at the par-5 seventh. Furyk walked off lurking just four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Matt Kuchar authored a 5-under-par 33-33=66 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship.

It's been a trying week for Kuchar, his caddie Lance Bennett and their loves ones. In the aftermath of the sudden death of Bennett's wife, Angela, Kuchar said on Golf Channel on Friday that the only time he considered withdrawing was on the first tee in the opening round. Forging on, after turning in a benign, 2-under 69 in the opener, Kuchar went crazy today, burying nine birdies against four bogeys. He hit 13 greens in regulation and possessed a strokes gained-putting clip of 4.650 for the round at last check. Today's notable conversions for birdie measured 28'2", 12'2" and 17'3" at Nos. 15, 3 and 8, respectively, but he also holed a look over bogey from 13'4" at the par-5 seventh. At 7-under 135, Kuchar is just one stroke adrift of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Aug 30 - 2:27 PM

Overnight leader Ryan Palmer settled for an even-par 37-34=71 in his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship to post 8-under 134 at the midpoint, good for sole possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Oh, golf. Palmer hit two more greens in regulation today (13), but squared three bogeys and a double to neutralize five birdies. He salvaged par just once after missing the GIR. His most notable conversions measured 15'9" and 18'11" at Nos. 5 and 12, respectively, both dropping for birdie.
Aug 30 - 1:39 PM

Russell Knox followed his opening, bogey-free 67 at the Deutsche Bank Championship with a 1-under-par 35-35=70 in today's second round to post 5-under 137, good for very early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Knox' lead will not hold, but that he rallied for a red number after opening with a double-bogey 6 at the 10th hole speaks to his grit. After landing his approach at the par 4 just 20'3" from the cup, he then needed four swipes with the flat stick to move on. Thereafter, he scored bogey-free, picking off three birdies along the way. Two of them ran longer than 10 feet, the highlight stretching 16'5" at the par-4 12th hole. He also poured in a par save from 10'11" at the par-4 sixth.
