Dustin Johnson smoothed a 9-under-par 30-33=63 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-HSBC Champions to post 12-under 132, good for a five-stroke lead entering the third round.

DJ is playing the kind of golf any fan expects, but to race out to where he is at the midpoint is still a surprise. He buried 10 birdies en route to matching the course record today. He poured in his first six just seven holes into the loop. After a bogey-5 at 10 -- his only blemish of the round -- he added four more, including a walk-off 4 at the 18th hole. It's the seventh time that a 63 has been recorded since the tournament received the label of the WGC in 2009. It's the fourth such score at Sheshan International; all of the first three were recorded in 2009.

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.

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.

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.

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.

Brandt Snedeker completed 36 holes of the Deutsche Bank Championship in 6-over-par 72-76=148 and will miss the cut.

Sneds hit 24 greens in regulation, but had a tough time avoiding the big numbers. He squared nine bogeys and a double at TPC Boston. A nifty eagle-2 from just three yards away at the drivable, par-4 fourth today was reason to smile, but it didn't provide a spark. Since he started the week at 71st in FedExCup points, he won't advance in the Playoffs, but surely the more disappointing fact is that his chances of getting a captain's pick for the Ryder Cup team are near zero since he controlled his own destiny. Other candidates are playing well this week and Hunter Mahan won The Barclays where Snedeker missed the cut. It seemed like a match made in heaven given Sneds' affinity for Watson, but the stars did not align and the putts didn't fall.

Pat Perez withdrew during his second round of the Deutsche Bank Championship due to a bulging disc.

Well, that was a quick diagnosis. Clearly, Perez has been dealing with this, but we were made privy to it today. He opened on the first hole at TPC Boston and went out in 2-over-par 38 before calling it quits. With an opening 77 already submitted, he was 8-over through 27 holes. He entered the week ranked 87th in the FedExCup standings, so his Playoffs are over.

Chez Reavie is listed in the published field of next week's Chiquita Classic.

The second leg of the Web.com Tour Finals will be contested at River Run Country Club in Davidson, North Carolina. Reavie hasn't played anywhere since missing the cut at the Shriners last October. He would have surgery on his left wrist on Jan. 14. He'll no doubt receive a Major Medical Extension for 2014-15 offering nearly a full season's allotment of starts, so it's good to know that he's ready to return and test the wrist. And who knows, a successful run in the Web.com Tour Finals would offer a safety net that might come in handy in case he fails to meet the terms of his medical.

Ryan Palmer smoothed an 8-under-par 30-33=63 in his opening round of the Deutsche Bank Championship and will sleep on the outright lead.

And to think that he opened with a bogey-5 at the 10th hole where he swallowed an unplayable lie following his tee ball left of the fairway. Therefore, it was a highlight show. Palmer converted nine birdies despite hitting only 11 greens in regulation. Three of his par breakers stretched outside 12 feet, the longest measuring 23'1" at the par-4 fifth hole. His most challenging par save measured 10'4" at the par-3 third. He was perfect on 16 tries inside 16 feet. At last check, his strokes gained-putting clip read 5.073, good for tops in the field of 93. Palmer entered the week at 43rd in the FedExCup standings. He shared the 18-hole lead at the PGA Championship and sustained the form to finish T5.
