Jordan Spieth settled for a 1-over-par 32-40=72 in his opening round of the Northern Trust Open.

Suffice it to say that Spieth won the front side, but Riviera won the battle on the vicious back nine. The wunderkind split six (of 14) fairways, hit 11 greens in regulation and swallowed four bogeys coming home to wipe away the early heroics that included a birdie conversion from 22'3" at the par-4 fifth hole and a hole-out for eagle from 124 yards at the par-4 seventh. He whiffed on three tries inside 10 feet, two of which for birdie late in the round. Riviera's learning curve is documented, but Spieth will go out in the morning and start on the 10th hole. Expect him to exact revenge.

World No. 65 Byeong Hun An labored to a 3-over-par 34-39=73 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship and at 4-over 71-73=144, missed the cut by seven shots.

A total of 85 pros from a field of 156 pros made the cut of 3-under 137 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. An, a pre-tourney 33/1 outright, was the highest up the bookmaker's food chain to depart early. He opened with a three-birdie four-bogey 71 and got worse on Day 2, outbalancing one eagle-3 and two birdies, with three bogeys and back-to-back double bogey-6s at 13 and 14. The first-time member though not a rookie will qualify for his first FedExCup Playoffs however, entering the week 96th in the FEC standings and projected at 94th. Other notable early exits include: 138- Scott Brown; Grayson Murray; Kevin Tway; Kyle Stanley .. 139- Chris Stroud; Luke Donald; Graeme McDowell .. 140- Nick Watney, Daniel Summerhays; Hao Tong Li; Brandon Hagy .. 141- Emiliano Grillo; Danny Lee .. 143- Ryan Palmer; James Hahn.

Past champ and World No. 59 Webb Simpson twirled a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 13-under 127, up two spots to T1, matching the 36-hole lead of Ryan Armour.

Play is still in progress but no one is going to catch the leaders. This will be Simpson's second 36-hole lead/co-lead of the season in 24 starts. He was a 36-hole co-leader seven starts ago at the DEAN & DELUCA (68-66), eventually finishing solo 5th with 67-71. The 32-year-old hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.397 SG: Off-the-Tee though -0.431 around-the-green. He squared back-to-back bogey-5s at Nos. 8 and 9 (failed scrambles), camouflaged by eight circles at 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 12, 14 and 15. The North Carolinian's split featured three from between 12 and 20 feet, recording 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.925 SG: Putting. Overall, this is his eighth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 232 career starts, previously 2-for-7 converting.

Ryan Armour put on a ball-striking clinic en route to a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-30=61, signing for a career-low score en route to the clubhouse co-lead alongside Webb Simpson with a two-day tally of 13-under 127.

The 41-year-old Web.com Tour grad entered the week ranked 187th in the FedExCup race. He's in need of a monster finish to crack the Playoffs and ensure he retains his TOUR card. So far, so good, as he's circled 14 birdies over two rounds while swallowing just one bogey. It was all about the ball-striking today as he gained 4.491 strokes approaching-the-green, landing 15 of his approach shots inside 25 feet, with the longest landing just 32'9" from the pin. Playing in his 103rd career PGA TOUR event, Armour is still searching for his first win. Armour is also searching for his first top 25 of the season. His previous low round on TOUR was a 7-under 63 in R2 of the 2008 Greater Milwaukee Open.

Derek Fathauer has withdrawn from the Wyndham Championship. He was 3-over thru 32 holes at the time of WD, and did not cite an injury.

Fathauer started his week with a 2-over 72 on Thursday. He returned to Sedgefield Country Club in need of a 5-under 65 to have a chance at playing the weekend. Three bogeys in the opening eight holes didn't help his case. His last measured strokes came at the par-5 15th where he found himself 11'3" after his third shot, but missed the next two putts before calling it quits. That included a miss from 3'10", his second missed putt from inside four feet on the day. Entering the week at 110th in the FedExCup standings, Fathauer is safely going to retain his TOUR card, and will have a spot reserved in next week's NORTHERN TRUST, if he's up to the task.

Prior to his round two tee time, Bryce Molder withdrew from the Wyndham Championship, putting an end to his 2016-17 PGA TOUR season. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Molder traded three birdies with a five pack of bogeys on day one. He lost 4.135 strokes off-the-tee as he split just five (of 14) fairways while hitting nine of his drives inside the 270-yard mark. The Georgia Tech product would have needed at least a 5-under 65 to have a chance to play the weekend. He would have needed a magical three rounds to vault up to a notable FedExCup number, as he entered the week 186th in the FEC race. Even with a WD, he is projected inside the top 200, which will give him a crack at the Web.com Tour Finals, if this WD wasn't due to a serious injury.

Søren Kjeldsen mastered Sedgefield Country Club in round two of the Wyndham Championship, penciling a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63, catapulting 78 spots up the live leaderboard to sit in a share of eighth place as the afternoon wave takes the course.

Making his tournament debut, it was a ho-hum, 1-under 69 in his opening lap. He appears to have the green surfaces figured out now, splashing home four putts from outside 11 feet today. That was good for +4.125 strokes gained putting on the round. Playing his first season as a PGA TOUR card carrier, the 42-old entered the week 154th in the FedExCup standings, and is projected at 142nd on the live FEC leaderboard. That will give him conditional status and a crack at the Web.com Tour Finals, if he decides to wants keep his talents in the United States for another year. Making his 56th career PGA TOUR start, this goes in the books as a new personal best for Kjeldsen, while also matching Kevin Na for the low round of the day, so far.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, top-ranked and World No. 9 Henrik Stenson tacked on a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 12-under 128, up one spot to the top of the leaderboard and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

If the lead holds, it'll be his fifth 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 170th career start, first since the 2015 TOUR Championship where he finished T2 (63-68-72-72). He's 1-for-4 converting, winning the 2013 TOUR Championship wire-to-wire. The 41-year-old hit 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting 2.510 SG: Approach-the-Green though -0.441 SG: Around-the-Green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 18 (failed scramble), outpaced by five circles at Nos. 13, 15, 4, 5 and 7, all from inside of 13 feet. The Swede recorded 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.669 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Kevin Na rocketed up the leaderboard in round two of the Wyndham Championship, piecing together a 7-under-par 30-33=63 to reach 10-under 130 after 36 holes, two off the early pace set by Henrik Stenson.

Na leaned heavily on the flat stick in his opening-round 67, but today he dialed in his irons and wedges. Before the day was done, he setup eight scoring chances from inside 10 feet, five of those from inside 5 feet. That was good for +4.349 strokes gained approaching-the-green, at the time he signed his card. Making his fourth appearance at Sedgefield Country Club, this is already his third time posting a round of 63 or better at the Donald Ross design (9-under 61 in R3 of 2010 being the best). This doesn't quite match Matt Every's 61 from Thursday, but Na's 63 does go in the books as the co-low round of the Friday morning wave (Soren Kjeldsen).

World No. 277 Johnson Wagner spun a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 9-under 131, up 29 places on the live leaderboard to T5.

This is the Charlotte resident's ninth Wyndham with two prior top 25s and one top 10, a T5 last year (66-68-65-67). His 64 is his lowest lap in 28 rounds, previously 65 (x2). The Virginia Tech alum arrived at 141st in the FedExCup standings, so needed to make the cut -- at least -- to qualify for the Playoffs. After an opening four-birdie one-bogey 67, he's accomplished that part. The 37-year-old landed seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting -0.510 SG: Off-the-Tee but 3.675 SG: Approach-the-Green. He squared bogey-5s at 10 and 18 (failed scrambles), offset by three birdie-3s at 8, 13 and 17, eagle-3 at 15 from 29'2", and a hole-out albatross at the par-5 fifth from 214 yards away. Wagner played the two par 5s at Sedgefield CC in 5-under, which has to be/tie some sort of record. He posted 1.538 putts per GIR and 1.633 SG: Putting, taking 26 total putts.

Hunter Mahan kept his foot on the gas in round two of the Wyndham Championship, carding a 5-under-par 33-32=65 to vault inside the top 5 with a two-day tally of 10-under 130.

Entering the week ranked 197th in the FedExCup standings, Mahan needs a podium finish just to have a chance at retaining his TOUR card and cracking the FedExCup Playoffs. So far, so good, for Mahan who has traded 10 birdies and an eagle with just two bogeys through 36 holes. A hot putter has been the key asset for the Texas resident, who has gained 5.353 strokes putting on the week (6th in the field at the time he signed his card). Mahan is playing the final season on his five-year exemption from winning the 2012 WGC-Match Play, and his game has seen a dip over the last two seasons. The veteran hasn't been inside the top 15 after R2 of an event since the WGC-HSBC Champions in October of 2015.

Johan Carlsson broke the challenge of tournament number one seed Matthew Southgate, winning their second round tie 4-and-2 in the Paul Lawrie Match Play at Golf Resort Bad Griesbach.

Early in the match it didn’t matter that Carlsson threw the second hole away with a double bogey-5 because he made another three winning birdies, plus a conceded one, to take a 3-up lead by the eighth tee. Southgate responded with a winning eagle-3 at 8 and also won the 12th with a birdie-4. But Carlsson was pouring the putts in. Southgate’s birdies at 10 and 15 were matched by Carlsson’s and he couldn’t respond to the Swede’s red numbers at 11, 13 and 16. The Englishman was 5-under through 16 holes, but the Swede progresses. He was approximately 7-under even with that double bogey.
