In response to a question on Twitter today, Bob Estes provided some insight as to when he hopes to return to competition.

Estes has been sidelined since the fall with an impingement in his left shoulder. He spoke briefly about the injury -- hey, it's Twitter -- and answered the query about his plan to resume competition, Estes wrote, "It's better. Hopefully late April or early May." The Zurich Classic of New Orleans is scheduled for April 24-27, so we'll hold our breath until then.

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.

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 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

After an opening 1-over 71, sponsor invite and World No. 511 Stuart Appleby withdrew prior to Round 2 of the Travelers Championship citing a back injury.

The 46-year-old made 23 starts last season, 20 of those on a Major Medical Extension (back) and didn't meet the terms. He wound up 143rd in the FedExCup standings so plays this season on conditional status. This was the Aussie's 11th start of the season, fifth on a sponsor exemption, and second mid-tourney WD, checking out after a first-round 76 at the Shriners, also on a sponsor invite. Overall, it's his eight career mid-tourney WD in 531 career starts. Appleby entered this week 242nd in the FedExCup standings.

Defending champion Henrik Stenson pieced together a 3-under-par 35-34=69 in his second round at the BMW International in Germany, nudging up four spots to T2 and, at 8-under 136, just one back from fellow Swede Joakim Lagergren.

Stenson has missed five of his last eight worldwide cuts, the latest at the U.S. Open last week, but during that poor run he did post T3 in the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth. And his play so far this week suggests another title push. Although he won this event at Gut Larchenhof last year, the Open champ has also tasted victory at this week's course, Golfclub München Eichenried, back in 2006 while he was also runner-up here in 2015. Stenson has made just two bogeys through 36 holes, his sole blemish today coming at No. 13 after he'd started par-birdie-par. He got back under par for the day with a birdie at 18 and found further circles at 1 and 8 to put himself in great position for a weekend title defense.

Joakim Lagergren landed eight birdies in a second-round 6-under-par 32-34=66 at the BMW International in Germany, vaulting 26 spots up the live leaderboard to first place with the morning wave virtually complete.

At 9-under 135, the Swede is a shot in front of compatriot Henrik Stenson and England's Richard Bland. Lagergren started his big move at Golfclub München Eichenried with a first birdie of the day at 11 and added another at 13 before giving it back with a bogey-5 at 14. However, he would finish his opening nine by connecting red circles on Nos. 16-18 to turn in 32. Coming home, he traded a birdie with a bogey at 4 and 5 but then assumed top spot on the leaderboard with gains at 7 and 9. Today's score matches the 66 he posted in round one here in 2013 before slipping all the way back to 74th. He'd arrived in Germany having gone into a slump (four missed cuts and no top 40 from seven starts) since finishing runner-up in the Qatar Masters followed by T23 in February's Dubai Desert Classic.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 424 Brett Stegmaier circled seven birdies in a nine-hole span en route to a 6-under-par 34-30=64 on Day 1 of the Travelers Championship in Cromwell, Connecticut, to sit T2, one back of leader Jordan Spieth.

This is the Connecticut native's fourth appearance and he's yet to play more than 36 holes, missing cuts in 2016 (by 10) after rounds of 72-77, as well as 2010 and 2006, the latter his professional debut. It's his 21st start of the season, posting one top 25 among just seven made cuts (T21, RSM Classic). The University of Florida product was also T2 after 18 holes at the Genesis back in February, eventually finishing T39 (66-75-68-72). He found nine (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, posting 2.659 SG: Tee-to-Green. Stegmaier offset a walk-off bogey-5 at nine with seven birdies, including four straight at holes 13-16, 18, 1 and 3, four from between 10 and 16 feet, recording 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.371 SG: Putting.

World No. 282 Johnson Wagner spun a season-low 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the first round of the Travelers Championship to sit T2, one shy of leader Jordan Spieth.

This is the 37-year-old's 11th Travelers with one prior top 25, a T17 in 2011 where he was T2 thru 36 holes (65-63) fading after rounds of 71-69. He's making his 20th start of the season, entering 140th in the FedExCup standings, and this ties his highest position on the leaderboard after any round. The Virginia Tech product was T2 after Rounds 2 and 3 at the season-opening Safeway, eventually finishing a season-best T3, which is his lone top 10 of the season. He squared a lone bogey-5 at five, offset by seven birdies at Nos. 1, 3, 4, 6, 9, 10 and 18, five from between 10 and 20 feet, kicking off with a pitch-in 3 at the first from 69'3" away. The Texas native hit nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 4.750 SG: Putting, currently No. 1 in the latter. His previous low this season was 65/R1 in Napa, though he did shoot 64 two times while teamed with Brian Harman at the Zurich.
Jun 22 - 6:44 PM

Making his tournament debut, World No. 6 Jordan Spieth twirled a season-tying-low 7-under-par 31-32=63 in the first round of the Travelers Championship, good a one-shot lead over Johnson Wagner and Brett Stegmaier.

This is Spieth's sixth career 18-hole lead/co-lead in 120 career events (112 pro). He's 1-for-5 converting those, winning the 2015 Masters (wire-to-wire). It's the 23-year-old's second 18-hole lead/co-lead this season in 16 starts, joining the Zurich Classic, where he (and teammate Ryan Palmer) were T1 after Day 1, eventually finishing solo 4th. He chased the Zurich with two missed cuts, T2 in his DEAN & DELUCA title defense, T13 at the Memorial, and T35 at the U.S. Open (73-71-76-69). The Texan found eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 3.059 strokes approaching-the-green and 5.233 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at nine (failed sand save), silenced by eight birdies at Nos. 1, 2, 4, 7, 8, 13, 14 and 18, posting 1.533 putts per GIR and 1.827 SG: Putting. Spieth's split featured four from between eight and 23 feet, needing 27 total putts. The 63 matches a season low which he'd shot two prior times, most recently at the WGC-Mexico/R3.
