Henrik Stenson signed for respective rounds of 73 and 76 at The Honda Classic and missed the 36-hole by nine strokes.

The field of 144 enjoyed lift, clean and place on preferred lies during the first two rounds at par-70 PGA National, but the reigning FedExCup champion failed to capitalize. He split 17 (of 28) fairways but hit only 16 greens in regulation. That mismatch led to eight bogeys and two doubles against only three birdies. It's his first MC on the PGA TOUR since last season's Wells Fargo Championship, so his consecutive cuts made streak on the circuit ends at 13. However, in the last seven weeks worldwide, he's just 2-for-4 with no top 25s in stroke-play starts worldwide and a second-round exit at the WGC-Accenture Match Play. He'll try again at next week's WGC-Cadillac Championship where he hasn't played since 2010.

Brian Davis withdrew from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans following a 2-over-par 37-37=74 in the first round, citing a back injury.

The Englishman only made it 11 holes at last week's Valero Texas Open before withdrawing due to a neck injury, so he actually made progress today. During this week's navigation he split 10 (of 14) fairways but landed just six greens in regulation. With back-to-back WDs on his resume, gamers should steer clear of Davis until he can compete for an entire week. He moves to 1-for-8 on the season as he plays out of the 40th slot on the Web.com Tour graduate reshuffle.

George McNeill has been disqualified from the Zurich Classic after missing his second round tee time, he was 3-over through 18 holes.

File this one under odd DQ stories. McNeill was stranded on the course due to darkness during round one. He took to the course this morning and made a mess of the back nine in the process. On the par-4 13th hole he had a mishap on the green that led to a double bogey and then found water on his approach shot at the par-4 16th. Once again, that lead to a double bogey. He backed that up with two more consecutive bogeys to close the round, rinsing another ball at the par-5 18th. McNeill closed the round at 3-over 75 and did not care to give TPC Louisiana another chance today. This will go in the books as his second DQ of the season, the first coming at the Puerto Rico Open due to a non-conforming club.

Jhonattan Vegas torched TPC Louisiana in round one of the Zurich Classic, signing for an 8-under-par 32-32=64 to share the 18-hole lead with Brian Stuard.

Vegas had the putter working right from the get-go in round one. He rolled in a 12'6" putt to save par on the par-3 third hole and splashed one home from 14'10" on the par-4 fifth hole just to get things started. Vegas would tack one four more putts from outside 10 feet before the round was over. That includes the biggest highlight for gamers which came on the par-5 seventh hole when he dropped in a 10'10" eagle roll. This opening 64 matches his season-low round (Frys.com Open, R1). Vegas posted a T36 in his 2015 Zurich debut (67-71-69-69) so this easily eclipses his low round at TPC Louisiana.

First-round leader Hennie Otto was 9-under through 14 holes before the second round of the Volvo China Open was called off for the day due to the threat of lightning at Topwin Golf and Country Club.

The horn sounded at 3.50pm local time with the earliest of the afternoon starters still having three holes to play. Round two is set to resume at 6.45am on Saturday morning, with play in round three scheduled to begin at 10am. Otto peeled off seven birdies and an eagle in his opening 63 but, as we see so often, couldn't find the same spark a day later. A bogey at 2 got him off on the wrong foot although he did hit back with birdies at 3 and 7. The South African followed that with six pars and a bogey at 13 in his next seven holes so was probably happy to get off the course and hope for better fortunes the following day. That said, he'll resume just two shots behind clubhouse leader Felipe Aguilar.

South Korean Tae-hoon Kim highlighted an 8-under-par 33-31=64 at the Volvo China Open on Friday with a hole-in-one at the 13th.

Already 5-under for his round, Kim drained his tee-ball at the 177-yarder to accelerate further, eventually ending at 9-under 135. That's just two shots behind leader Felipe Aguilar. "It was about 165 metres but the view from the tee, we couldn't see the hole, only the top of the flag. I was aiming a little to the left of the pin and I just hit a seven iron, it was a beautiful shot and the galleries beside the green shouted out so that's how I knew," he said. As well as that eagle, Kim circled birdies at 5, 7, 8, 10, 12, 15 and 16. He swallowed his only bogey at 17. Kim's hole-in-one was the second of the week following Rikard Karlberg's first-round ace at the 16th on Thursday.

Felipe Aguilar jumped to the top of the leaderboard on day two of the Volvo China Open after hitting all 18 greens in regulation in a bogey-free 7-under-par 34-31=65.

The Chilean's flawless lap of Topwin Golf & CC took him to 11-under 133 through 36 holes, a stroke clear of Alex Noren and Bernd Wiesberger. Aguilar compiled a steady front nine, making seven pars and picking up birdies at the two par 5s (Nos. 4 and 8). He then hit the gas coming home, circling red at 10, 11, 14, 16 and 18. As well as perfect GIR stats, he hit 12 (of 14) fairways and took 30 putts. The 41-year-old has started the year slowly but revealed why after the round. "I missed several cuts by one or two shots and I wasn't putting very well, missing shots that I usually don't. I guess now I believe my doctors when they said I would struggle to recover my fitness from doing an ironman competition (over Christmas). They said I would struggle for about two months afterwards and I actually did because it's such fine margins in this sport. I haven't done much exercise in recuperating my body, but I have been doing a lot of work lately so hopefully this will do it."

Ted Potter Jr. returned to action with a 3-under-par 34-35=69 during the first round of the United Leasing & Finance Championship. It was his first competitive round since the summer of 2014.

The lefty suffered an ankle injury during the week of the 2014 RBC Canadian Open. It happened when he slipped on a curb at his hotel and broke his right ankle. Fast forward 21 months and two surgeries, Potter Jr. is starting to make some rehab starts on the Web.com Tour. That is one of the perks of a major medical extension as you are allowed five "minor league" starts to get the game back in form. Potter Jr. will have two starts on the PGA TOUR to earn 127 FedExCup points (or $326,004) and gain conditional status. If not, he will need to play his way through the Web.com Tour playoffs to get his PGA TOUR card back. His opening round, 3-under is just four strokes off the early pace set by Bhavik Patel and just one stroke behind the trio of golfers currently sharing second place. Not too shabby for a golfer that's been away from the TOUR for nearly two years.

Retief Goosen thrashed TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 7-under-par 30-35=65 during the first round of this week's Zurich Classic to sit just one stroke off the current leader Brian Stuard.

The South African came out guns blazing this week, rattling off six birdies on his outward nine. That all started with birdie rolls of 18'8" and 20' on the par-4 first and par-5 second holes, respectively. Overall he just needed four putts made from outside five feet today. Goosen's tee-to-green game was on point as well, striping nine (of 14) fairways in route toward 15 greens in regulation. He arrived with top 30s in each of his last three Zurich starts and now he's on his way to a fourth straight.

Brian Stuard ransacked TPC Louisiana with a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-33=64 during the first round at the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

It was all putting, all the time, today for Stuard. He splashed home par-saving rolls from 32'5" (par-4 12th) and 19'11" (par-3 17th), but that is just the tip of the iceberg. Stuard also fired in seven birdie putts from outside seven feet, four coming from 11 feet or longer. He walked off the course having gained 6.446 strokes with the flat stick, the third highest single-round putting performance for any golfer on TOUR this season. There is no way Stuard can maintain this pace on the putting surface but luckily this round gives him a nice cushion as he moves toward a much needed big finish.
Apr 28 - 6:12 PM

Carl Pettersson played eight holes at 5-over before withdrawing from the Zurich Classic of New Orleans due to a wrist injury.

The Swede found one (of seven) fairways one his way toward a pair of bogeys, two double bogeys, and a lone birdie. As you might guess, the birdie came on the one hole where he striped a fairway. He found water off the tee on his lone par 3 played, leading to a double bogey. This goes in the books as his third mid-tournament WD of the season. Pettersson is now 4-for-14 on the season and continues to struggle following the anchored-putter ban.

Hennie Otto blitzed his final nine holes to set a target of 9-under-par 33-30=63 at the Volvo China Open; by the end of play it was a figure no-one had matched and left him holding a 2 shot advantage over second placed Bernd Wiesberger, with four players T3 a shot further back.

The South African started from the tenth tee and played the back nine well, ticking birdies at 11, 15 and 17. But upon making the turn he set fire to the Topwin Golf & CC layout. He made red at 2, 3, 5 and 7 before adding icing on the cake with an eagle-3 on the 558-yard par-five 8th. His stats were naturally impressive: he hit 12 of 14 fairways, found 15 greens in regulation, saved par all 3 times he needed to, and required a mere 24 putts. The 63 gives him a fourth sole R1 lead on the European Tour, but his first since the 2003 British Open. This form is a surprise: he's made the cut just once in his last 7 European Tour starts.
