Henrik Stenson is questionable to compete in this week's BMW Masters at Lake Malaren in Shanghai, China.

This is the first event of the new Final Series on the European Tour. Stenson hasn't played anywhere since securing the FedExCup with a victory at the TOUR Championship during which he played through soreness in his right wrist. The concern is that he hasn't felt an improvement from the discomfort. "I am hoping to get it sorted out over the next couple of days," he said on Tuesday, "but at the moment I’m not in great shape and I’m not certain of playing this week." After receiving treatment and having reportedly undergone an MRI, he participated in Wednesday's pro-am. Next week's WGC-HSBC is a co-sanctioned event on the PGA TOUR, so gamers will want to keep a close eye on his form at the BMW Masters. "It’s very worrying," Stenson added, "especially as this will be the first week of a seven-tournament stretch for me."

Dustin Johnson tried to recover from his opening 74 at the RBC Canadian Open, but still missed the cut by two strokes following a second-round 68.

Seventy-two professionals and one amateur (Taylor Pendrith) survived the 36-hole cut at even-par 140. DJ converted five birdies today, but they weren't enough to overcome three bogeys. Given the fact that Jim Furyk and Graham DeLaet matched the course record in the morning, Johnson had a realistic shot of getting to the weekend. He had cashed in eight consecutive starts before today's disappointment. Other notables to failed to survive include: 141--2005 champ Mark Calcavecchia; Charley Hoffman ... 142--Seung-yul Noh ... 143--2002 champ John Rollins; 2010 champ Carl Pettersson; Hunter Mahan ... 144-Luke Donald; Jason Allred ... 146--1998 champ Billy Andrade ... 151--Erik Compton.

Scott Piercy weaved a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open.

After just two rehab starts on the Web.com Tour following four months of being sidelined for surgery on his right elbow, you'd have forgiven Piercy if he missed the cut at Royal Montreal today. Instead, he's 3-under 137 at the midpoint, good for a share of 28th place seven strokes off the 36-hole lead. Now, he did stumble on Thursday, hitting only seven greens in regulation and erasing one birdie with three bogeys, but he went 5-for-5 in scrambling today and picked off five birdies. The set featured a five-yarder from the rough at the par-4 second and conventional conversions from 23'2" and 14'9" at Nos. 9 and 15, respectively. He also nearly aced the par-3 fifth where ShotTracker lists his birdie putt at one inch. Piercy isn't yet exempt for 2014-15 and he's sure to receive a medical extension, but he may not need it if he can keep this rally rolling on the weekend in Canada.

At 13-over-par 78-75=153, Scott McCarron missed the cut at the RBC Canadian Open by 13 strokes.

If you're going to miss a cut, you might as well miss it by a mile. McCarron hit only 13 greens in regulation and found two birdies at Royal Montreal. He also squared 11 bogeys and two doubles. This was his final start via a Major Medical Extension. For the record, he fell $618,656 short of fulfilling the terms. Only a victory in Quebec would have achieved that objective. McCarron also came up short of securing conditional status by $445,441. A two-way T2 would have done the job there. Of course, given that there are only two open events remaining this season and he's in the field at next week's Barracuda Championship, which he hosts, reaching the goals of the medical this week were largely irrelevant. In fact, he's now inside 12 months before he becomes eligible for the Champions Tour (on July 10, 2015), so his focus is likely on the senior circuit.

Richard H. Lee withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open during his second round, citing a thumb injury.

Lee flighted his approached into a greenside bunker at the par-4 16th hole, and then walked in. He was even-par through six holes and 4-over through 24 at the time. It had to be a tough decision to swallow since Lee entered the week slotted 125th in FedExCup points and 122nd in earnings. If he's able, Lee will try again at next week's Barracuda Championship.

Overnight co-leader Tim Petrovic backed up his opening 64 with a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 10-under 130, good for a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead with Jim Furyk.

No letup for Petro, who went 7-for-8 in scrambling with a bogey-5 at the 18th hole today, his ninth of the round. He also rolled in five birdies, including conversions from 18'2" and 13'2" at Nos. 3 and 6, respectively. Perhaps the highlight of the bunch was an eight-yard hole-out from the rough at 15. And for good measure, he saved par from 40'7" at the par-3 fifth where he found a greenside bunker off the tee. Anything he does at this point is a bonus.

Graham DeLaet torched the Blue Course at Royal Montreal Golf Club for a 7-under-par 31-32=63 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open to post 8-under 132 at the break and sit two strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This year's edition of the tournament marks the 60th anniversary since Pat Fletcher was the last Canadian to win his national championship. DeLaet's form has been inconsistent of late, but at 38th in the Official World Golf Ranking, he's highest among his fellow Canucks and therefore the most reasonable to end the drought even though he's never won a PGA TOUR event. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 14 greens in regulation today en route to nine birdies against two bogeys. Four of his par breakers dropped in from outside 10 feet, including conversions from 30'1" at 14 and 21'9" at 1. He also poured in a par save from 10'9" at the par-3 13th and a bogey putt from 20'9" at the par-4 18th where he found water off the tee. At last check, DeLaet's strokes gained-putting for the round measured 5.494. He's the fourth to card a course-record 63 and the second today (after Jim Furyk)

Jim Furyk was nearly flawless en route to a bogey-free, 31-32=63 in his second round of the RBC Canadian Open.

He missed only two (of 14) fairways and one green in regulation at Royal Montreal today. He picked off seven birdies, all of which from outside 10 feet. The most notable measured 49'11", 19'4" and 20 feet at the 11th, 13th and first holes, respectively. He missed thrice from inside nine feet, thus capping his strokes gained-putting split at 3.165 at last check, but his consolation is early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at 10-under 130. He hasn't won a PGA TOUR event since the 2010 TOUR Championship, but he rolled into Canada in red-hot form. Today's score equals the course record established in the second round of the 2001 edition of the tournament. Both Scott Verplank and David Morland IV turned in 63s that week. Verplank won by three strokes. Furyk's held up throughout the day, so he'll sleep on a share of the 36-hole lead.

James Driscoll withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open prior to his second round.

Driscoll was slated to go off the 10th tee at 8:20 a.m. local time. He opened with 8-over-par 38-40=78 with one birdie, seven bogeys and a double. He hit only nine greens in regulation. This is the first time in 237 PGA TOUR starts that he's withdrawn during a tournament. (Three were as an amateur.) If an explanation is released, we will relay it to you.

Camilo Villegas withdrew from the RBC Canadian Open during his second round due to a wrist injury.

The Colombian started on the back of Royal Montreal Golf Club's Blue Course today and went out in 2-over-par 37 before calling it quits. He was 5-over through 27 holes. It's his first mid-tournament WD since the 2012 RBC Heritage with a back injury. He entered the week ranked 95th in the FedExCup standings, so he likely doesn't have to sweat out a spot inside the top 125 to qualify for the Playoffs and retain status for 2014-15.

Tim Petrovic smoothed a bogey-free, 31-33=64 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, good for a share of the overnight lead with Michael Putnam.

Petrovic was the last man in the field when Benjamin Alvarado withdrew on Wednesday. The American has been limited to seven starts this season due to Past Champion status, but he proved today that he needs only one to change everything. After opening with a standard-issue par at the par-4 first, he strung together birdies at 2, 3 and 4, the last disappearing from 59'5". He added a birdie from 11'7" at the par-3 seventh and an eagle-3 at 12 where he knocked his second to just 39 inches. This is Petro's lowest aggregate on the PGA TOUR since he closed out a T2 at the 2012 Frys.com Open with the same.

Michael Putnam spun a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 in his opening round of the RBC Canadian Open, good for sole possession of the clubhouse lead.

Putnam is having another season like his rookie year of 2007, but he's going to retain fully exempt status this time. He's 99th in the FedExCup standings despite no top 10s and only three top 25s. That's what can happen when you cash in 19 starts. Today at Royal Montreal, he striped 11 (of 14) fairways and went 4-for-4 in scrambling en route to six birdies. His longest measured just 12 feet at the par-4 second hole.
