Contrary to what was previously believed, Kiradech Aphibarnrat is short of qualifying for Special Temporary Membership [STM] on the PGA TOUR.

The confusion was grounded in the previous formula for qualification versus the new path now that FedExCup points have taken root to define membership. In two starts, Aphibarnrat has earned 176.00 FedExCup points and $452,250.00. Effective for the 2013-14 season, non-members qualify for STM with only FedExCup points. (The old method used earnings.) So, while the Thai upstart has already surpassed what Ben Kohles earned in dollars as the 150th-ranked golfer in 2013, Aphibarnrat remains 102.29 FedExCup points short of what Justin Bolli totaled at No. 150 in 2013. Therefore, the only goal for all non-members to achieve STM in 2013-14 is to reach 278.29 FedExCup points.

World No. 28 Daniel Berger crafted a 4-under-par 34-32=66 in the third round of the Travelers Championship for a 54-hole total of 9-under 201, up five places to solo 3rd, three adrift of leader Jordan Spieth, who's topped the leaderboard after each of the first three rounds.

This is the 24-year-old's second appearance after T5 last year, where he was the 54-hole leader by three (66-67-career-best 62), but closed in 4-over 74. It's his 18th start of the season with six prior top 25s and four top 10s, highlighted by his second TOUR win two starts ago at the FedEx St. Jude Classic (as defending champ), where he came from three back with 4-under 66 to win by one. After opening in 68-67, the Florida State product found eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, losing 1.129 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 3.493 approaching-the-green, No. 1 in the latter with a cumulative 6.877. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 17, camouflaged by five birdies at Nos. 2, 10, 12, 13 and 18, two from between 17 feet and 26 feet, posting 1.714 putts per GIR and 1.822 SG: Putting.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 160 C.T. Pan smoothed a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-31=64 on Moving Day at the Travelers Championship to post 8-under 202, up 41 spots to T2, good for a share of the 54-hole clubhouse lead with David Lingmerth and the low round of the day thus far.

This is the University of Washington alum's second Travelers (T25/2015) and 23rd start of the season. He's recorded just two top 25s so far among eight previous cashes, but both doubled as top 10s, including a career-best T2 at the Farmers in late-January. The 25-year-old entered the week 88th in FedExCup standings and off six missed cuts in his last seven events. After opening in 70-68, he found 11 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation in R3, gaining 1.372 strokes off-the-tee and 2.829 tee-to-green. The Taiwan native circled six birdies at holes 3, 6, 11-13 and 16, five from inside of 11 feet with a long of 24'4" at the par-3 16th. He posted 1.667 putts per GIR and 3.620 SG: Putting, buoyed by two par-savers from between 11 and 13 feet. Pan is bogey-free now for his last 38 holes.

Will it be 410th time lucky for Richard Bland? We'll find out in Sunday's final round at the BMW International Open in Germany after the winless veteran finished day three tied for the lead with Sergio Garcia on 13-under 203 after a 5-under-par 34-33=67, the pair a shot clear of Joakim Lagergren.

There were two big moments for Bland today, both coming on the back nine. At the 11th he played out of water and holed a 20-footer for one of the most unlikely birdies of the season and two holes later at 13 he drained his approach from the fairway for eagle-2. From there he closed with five straight pars. Earlier in his afternoon lap of Golfclub München Eichenried, the 44-year-old, who started the day just one off the lead, bounced back from a bogey at No. 2 with a trio of birdies at 4, 5 and 6. Bland had a number of opportunities to secure his first win in an excellent 2016 campaign but couldn't take any. After a poor 2017, it would be somewhat out of left field if he saw off Masters champ Garcia to secure it here.

Sergio Garcia moved into a tie for the lead at the BMW International Open in Germany after crafting a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in Saturday's third round.

At 13-under 203, the Spaniard is level with Richard Bland of England, the pair one shot clear of halfway leader Joakim Lagergren. On an international leaderboard which shows nine different flags for the top nine places, it's a further two strokes back to Belgian Thomas Detry and Argentina's Andres Romero in T4. Garcia added to rounds of 66 and 70 with a seven-birdie lap of Golfclub Munchen Eichenried today. Starting his round one back, the Masters champion traded an opening birdie at 1 with a bogey at 4 after finding water before making circles on the par 5s at 6 and 9. On his second nine he sprinkled further red at 11, 12, 15 and 17 against a bogey at 14 and, with joint-leader Bland still winless on the European Tour, Garcia is a massive favorite to go on and complete victory in Sunday's closer and secure his 14th European Tour trophy. "I think it was a good, solid day," said the Augusta hero afterwards.

World No. 390 Boo Weekley handed in a 2-under-par 36-32=68 after the second round of the Travelers Championship for a 36-hole total of 6-under 134, up two spots to T4, two shy of leader Jordan Spieth.

The 43-year-old conjured six (of 14) fairways but peppered 16 greens in regulation, No. 1 in the latter thru 36 holes at 86.11 percent (31/36). He squared two, 3-putt bogeys at holes 4 (from 42'1") and 13 (from 44'1"), offset by a hole-out eagle-2 at 10 from 170 yards away, and birdies at 16 and 18, from 14'6" and 25'0", respectively. The Florida native and resident gained 3.397 stokes tee-to-green, No. 1 in SGTTG with a cumulative 6.875, but lost 0.573 strokes on-the-green, needing 32 total putts. This is his 22nd start of the season and second time he's been in the top 10 after any round. Weekley's season best among just eight made cuts is T37 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open, where he was T12 thru 54 holes.

Making his third appearance, first since T18 in 2014, World No. 4 Jason Day patched together an even-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the Travelers Championship and at 2-over 72-70=142, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 85 players from a field of 156 made the 36-hole cut of even-par 140 (17, T69 on the number), so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Day, a pre-tourney 11/1 outright, was the highest up the bookmaker's food chain to exit early, and after a MC at last week's U.S. Open by nine (79-75), he's now missed consecutive cuts for the first time since the Memorial and THE PLAYERS in 2015, 107 and 111 weeks ago, respectively. The 29-year-old cancelled four birdies with four bogeys in R2 on 10 greens in regulation after opening with three birdies against three bogeys and double bogey-6 in R1. Other notable departures include: 141- Trey Mullinax .. 142- 2-time champ Bubba Watson; Harris English .. 143- Lucas Glover; 2013 champ Ken Duke .. 144- Zach Johnson; Jhonattan Vegas .. 145- Justin Thomas.

World No. 17 Patrick Reed authored a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to post 7-under 133, up 17 spots to T2, one adrift of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

The 26-year-old outpaced one bogey with five birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation and will play out of the final threesome in R3 with Spieth and Troy Merritt. He gained 1.489 strokes off-the-tee and 1.506 approaching-the-green, recording 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.580 SG: Putting. The Texan squared the par-3 16th (failed scramble), overshadowed by five birdies at Nos. 1, 6, 8, 13 and 18, three from between 10 and 25 feet, culminating with a walk-off 3 at 18 from 13'5". This is his sixth straight Travelers, posting two previous top 25s and a best of T11 last year (70-67-68-66). Reed was the 54-hole leader five starts ago at the Wells Fargo, settling for T12 with a 3-over 75.

With inclement weather expected Friday evening and Saturday morning, Round 3 tee times at the Travelers Championship will be scheduled between 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. ET with threesomes off split tees. UPDATE: Round 3 tee times are now scheduled between 10:45 a.m. - 1:05 p.m.

Friday's second round is still in progress, so it remains to be seen how many players will make the 36-hole cut. One player who secured a later tee time and a start off No. 1 tee on Saturday is World No. 66 Anirban Lahiri, who fired a career-low bogey-free 7-under-par 33-30=63 in R2, good for the low round in the clubhouse and matching the low round of the week with 18-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling five birdies and eagle-3 at 13 (from 32'3"), posting a stellar 1.500 putts per GIR and 5.270 SG: Putting. The 29-year-old opened his tourney debut in 3-over 73 (three birdies, two bogeys and two double bogey-5s), and currently sits T17 on the leaderboard, up 108 places on the day. His previous best on TOUR (167 rounds) was 64 two times, most recently at the 2017 CareerBuilder/R3.

Making his tournament debut, open-qualifier and World No. 1947 Chase Seiffert fashioned a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to reach 6-under 134, currently T4 and two shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth.

This is the Florida State alum's third career TOUR start, second this season and second as an open-qualifier. He cashed his first check with T74/MDF at The RSM Classic back in mid-November (71-65-74) and prior to that, missed the cut in his pro debut at the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic on a sponsor exemption. In the unlikely event the 25-year-old wins this week, he would be the third straight former Seminole to win on TOUR, joining Daniel Berger (FESJC) and Brooks Koepka (U.S. Open). He opened with a five-birdie three-bogey 68 and hit nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation in Round 2, cancelling three birdies with three bogeys. However, the Florida native carded two eagles, the first a hole-out 2 at the third from 138 yards away, adding eagle-3 at 13 from six inches after nearly holing his second to the par 5 from 250 yards away. He posted 4.248 SG: Tee-to-Green, including 3.208 approaching-the-green, though just 0.313 SG: Putting.
Jun 23 - 2:24 PM

First-round leader and World No. 6 Jordan Spieth tacked on a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to post 8-under 132, good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead by one over Troy Merritt. UPDATE: Spieth is the 36-hole leader by one over Merritt and Patrick Reed, his 9th career 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 120th career start (112 pro), and is 4-for-8 converting, though four of his last five.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 23-year-old landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.627 strokes approaching-the-green at last glance. He circled four birdies at Nos. 12, 15, 1 and 3, three from inside of eight feet, adding a long of 35'7" at the par-4 third. The Texan took some luster off with double bogey-7 at 13 (tee shot OB), and bogey-4 at the fifth (failed sand save) that concluded his scoring. He posted a pedestrian 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.207 SG: Putting, missing one scoring try from 4'9" at 14. If the lead holds, it'll be his second 36-hole lead/co-lead this season (16 starts). Spieth was T1 thru 36 at the AT&T Pebble Beach (68-65), took the 54-hole lead with 7-under 65, and won with a closing 70.
Jun 23 - 1:56 PM

Joël Stalter finds himself in rarefied air after posting a superb second round of 4-under-par 35-33=68 to hit the halfway mark of the BMW International Open on 9-under 135 and holding a share of the lead with Joakim Lagergren.

The Frenchman has never held the lead (or shared it) on the European Tour, but then he has never, either, opened a Tour event with two sub-70 laps. Clearly he has taken to the challenge at Golfclub Munchen Eichenried, but he is also riding a little wave of form, having qualified for the U.S. Open and opened the Lyoness Open with a 68 for T5. He'll need to maintain the pace over the weekend, however. On Friday there were three front nine birdies at 1, 4 and 6, with dropped shots at 3 and 5. On the back nine there were three red numbers in four holes at 13, 15 and 16. He'll play Saturday with fellow non-winner Joakim Lagergren, hunted down by Henrik Stenson and Sergio Garcia, who are a shot back.
