Dudley Hart is listed in the published field of next week's Humana Challenge.

Hart hasn't played the PGA TOUR since missing the cut at Pebble Beach in 2012. He then had at least two fusion surgeries on his back before beginning the comeback trail on the PGA TOUR Canada late last summer. A T13 in an event on the NEC Series - Latinoamérica followed three months later. Regardless of how he fares next week, it's a shrewd choice as a return site since the cut doesn't fall until 54 holes are in the books due to the fact that three courses are used in the rotation. From a fantasy perspective, he's worth a flier only in the deepest of salary leagues. Hart has 12 starts remaining on his Major Medical Extension to earn $504,284 and retain status.

Playing the Nicklaus Tournament Course, World No. 142 Jason Kokrak tossed up a 5-under-par 32-35=67 in the second round of the CareerBuilder Challenge for a two-day tally of 14-under 130, currently T2 on the leaderboard and the new 36-hole clubhouse leader, bumping Zach Johnson.

The 32-year-old landed eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.538 putts per GIR, currently No. 1 in the latter thru 36 holes (1.444). He squared a lone bogey-5 at 10, offset by six circles at 1, 2, 7, 9, 13 and 15, taking 27 total putts. The Xavier alum will move to the Stadium Course in R3 on Saturday. He entered the week 3-for-6 on the season with three top 25s and one top 10, a T7 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms five starts ago.

Zach Johnson blitzed the Nicklaus Tournament Course with an 8-under-par 31-33=64 during round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge, vaulting into the early clubhouse lead with a two-day tally of 13-under 131 with play still in progress.

ZJ opened his day on the 10th tee and started the scoring with an easy birdie at the par-5 11th. He would add two more circles before making the turn. That is where the fireworks began, adding birdies on six of his next eight holes. It was all about confident putting today as he slammed home more than his fair share of lengthy birdies today. On top of the hot putter, he also chipped in for birdie at the par-4 first hole, his 10th of the day. Given the scoring environment in the California desert, it is unlikely this lead will hold by day's end but Johnson is still in great position to go after his 13th career win. He's been held winless since the 2015 Open Championship.

Kevin Chappell cruised to a bogey-free, 8-under-par 32-32=64 during round two of the CareerBuilder Challenge, posting the lowest round so far this week on the Stadium Course to reach 9-under 135 and throw his name back into the mix.

The UCLA product sputtered out of the gate with a 1-under 71 at the Nicklaus Tournament Course in R1. Moving over to the toughest course today, Chappell flipped a switch and was dialed in from the start. The scoring began with a 60'7" eagle hole out at the par-4 fifth hole. Pelting 17 greens in regulation, Chappell would add six birdies before his day was done. Today's round falls one shy of his personal best at this event. As he walked off the course today, he had climbed 88 spots on the leaderboard, just inside the top 20. The California native will now turn his attention toward La Quinta Country Club in round three.

Brooks Koepka announced that he'll be on the sidelines for the next 8-to-12 weeks as he tries to recover from a torn tendon in his left wrist.

Koepka ended 2017 by finishing dead-last in the 18-man Hero World Challenge field and then Doug Ferguson broke the news on his wrist injury. The big hitter returned to action with a solo 34th (of 34) at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, but will now opt for rest. In a statement released by his management company, Koepka was quoted saying, "I am confident in my doctors and in the treatment they have prescribed, and I look forward to teeing it up at the Masters." This is a big blow for the short-term outlook of the defending U.S. Open champion but in the grand scheme of things, this could just be a minor blip on the radar when he looks back later in his career. At least, that is the hope.

Rory McIlroy's return to action continued to impress Friday; he's bogey-free through 36 holes of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship after a second round of 6-under-par 34-32=66 for a halfway total of 9-under 135, T6 and three back of leader Thomas Pieters.

Other than grab the lead it's hard to know what more the 28-year-old could have done on his seasonal entrance. Having made steady progress on the first lap, he made in-roads throughout the early stages of his second, and then he left the course with a statement of intent for the weekend: a 25'0" eagle conversion on the 562-yard par-5 final hole. Unsurprisingly it drew big cheers from the galleries. Prior to that he had ticked four holes in the first 12. There were circled 3s at 9 and 11, but it was the birdie-2s he made at the fourth and 12th which shone. His irons were dialled in as he left himself just 4'0" at the former and half that distance at the latter. "Very satisfying," he said afterwards. "I always struggle to read these greens, the colour of them. I'm hitting good putts and they're sliding by the edges. I feel I deserved that one at the last."

Thomas Pieters holed out from sand with his final shot of the day in round two of the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, completing a superb bogey-free 7-under-par 33-32=65 to reach 12-under 132 at the midpoint and secure a two-stroke clubhouse lead over Ross Fisher. UPDATE:- Pieters remained in the lead at the close of play, one swing clear of Jorge Campillo.

That's some statement by the Belgian and means World No. 1 Dustin Johnson, who has just teed off his second round, has 12 strokes to make up. Pieters could only par his opening hole, the par-5 10th, and also couldn't take advantage of the 562-yard 18th but he sprinkled birdie-3s at 11, 13 and 16 to turn in 33. He made a fast start to his inward nine with gains at 1 and 2 to reach double digits under par before closing with another pair of par breakers, including that walk-off birdie from a greenside bunker at 9. Pieters was runner-up in this event in 2016 and also fourth in 2015 so has shown some great form here previously. Asked about the key to his 65 today, Pieters said: "I think ball-striking. I hit 16 greens today. The conditions are perfect, no wind. It's nice out there. So you need to take advantage of the conditions."

Austin Cook blitzed the Nicklaus Tournament Course in round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge, carding a bogey-free, 9-under 63 to find himself one off the torrid pace set by Jon Rahm.

The PGA TOUR rookie fired out of the gate with four birdies and an eagle over his first seven holes. That included a hole-out birdie from the rough at the par-4 second hole. He slowed his pace, but not by much, adding four more birdies before his day was done. Cook's clean card was all set up by steady driving, splitting all 14 fairways today. After an easy navigation today, Cook will head to the Stadium Course for round two, a course that is playing nearly two strokes harder than the Nick Tourney Course, at the moment. Remarkably, this isn't a career low for Cook as he fired an 8-under 62 during R2 of his victory at this season's RSM Clasic.

Taking on The Stadium Course at PGA WEST in round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge, Nick Watney coasted to a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 to put himself in a great position as he preps for the easiest two courses over the next two days.

Making his eighth appearance at this event, Watney was a perfect 5-for-5 with all top 35s before the course rotation changed in 2016. After back-to-back missed cuts, he appears to have these courses figured out now. Taking on the toughest test (Stadium Course), Watney kept a clean card while circling seven birdies at the Pete Dye design. A hot putter was the biggest asset today, rolling in six putts from the 8-to-13 foot range. Watney also holed out from 41'6" for birdie at the par-4 14th hole. Still trying to regain form after his 2016 injury, the California native is one to watch closely to see if he can piece together three more good rounds.

Andrew Landry cruised through La Quinta Country Club in round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge, styling a bogey-free, 9-under-par 34-29=63 to vault himself inside the top 5 on the early leaderboard.

Playing his second full season on the PGA TOUR, Landry is looking to cash in on some course knowledge. His first time at the CareerBuilder (2016) he posted rounds of 70-69-70 to miss the cut. Today was much different as he circled eight birdies and also added a bonus, hole-out eagle at the par-4 14th. La Quinta CC was playing very easy today (-3.49 RTP at the moment) but so was the Nicklaus Tournament Course (-3.32 RTP) which is where Landry will tee it up on Friday. The 30-year-old has an up-and-down season going with a pair of top 10s in six starts, but all other four landing outside the top 55. After this opening round, he could be eyeing down a third top 10 by week's end.

Odds-favorite Jon Rahm fired out of the gate with a bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62 while playing at La Quinta Country Club during round one of the CareerBuilder Challenge, good for the early clubhouse lead with play still in progress.

Rahm finished T34 here last year in his debut, failing to take advantage of the par 5s. That was not the case today as he converted on an eagle from inside 10 feet on the first par 5 he looked at, then circled birdies on the remaining three par 5s. With calm conditions in Palm Springs, this was about as easy as it gets out here on the PGA TOUR. Rahm splattered 15 greens in regulation today and will head to the Nicklaus Tournament Course on Friday. If this lead holds by day's end it will be the Spaniard's third career first-round lead or co-lead. He's gone on to finish T3 in both of those previous FRLs (2016 National, 2017 WGC-Mexico).

Making his first start at the Abu Dhabi HSBC Championship, Japan's Hideto Tanihara fired a bogey-free 6-under-par 32-34=66 to take a share of the first-round lead with defending champion Tommy Fleetwood.

Fleetwood had held the lead after the morning session at Abu Dhabi GC but Tanihara came in late in the day to match the Englishman's 66. On a truly international leaderoard, the pair lead by a shot from Paraguay's Fabrizio Zanotti, Belgian Thomas Pieters, Austrian Bernd Wiesberger, England's Ross Fisher and Aussie Sam Brazel. Like Fleetwood, World No. 71 Tanihara played in last week's EurAsia Cup so perhaps had some added sharpness. He certainly showed that in round one with a pair of opening birdies at 12 and 13 along with two more at 15 and 17 to turn in 32. He added another par breaker at the par-5 2nd hole and a walk-off circle at the 9th gave him a share of top spot. "Didn't hit fairways so much but I'm thinking more about playing smart golf and making good putts," said Tanihara later.
