Jarrod Lyle is planning on resuming his competitive schedule at the Web.com Tour's Midwest Classic on July 24-27.

After going 1-for-2 in events in his native Australia over the last few months, Lyle has three rehab starts remaining before he expects to return to the PGA TOUR at the Frys.com Open in October. He's on his second rebound from battling leukemia. "I didn’t think it was going to be possible a while ago, but now there’s that light at the end of the tunnel and that’s the PGA Tour again," he said last week. The 32-year-old has 20 starts on his medical extension in the reshuffle category to earn $285,825 and a promotion to the Major Medical category, a goal that is quite reasonable to achieve, but finding starts in the fall could be an issue without sponsor exemptions. Whatever happens, he's also expecting to continue playing on his home circuit when the PGA TOUR breaks for the holidays.

Peter Uihlein reached the break of the Puerto Rico Open in 6-over-par 77-73=150, missing the cut by four strokes.

He was a popular selection in many formats this week, but the non-member failed to fulfill the hope. He found only 12 (of 28) fairways and 21 greens in regulation at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Uihlein managed just four birdies while incurring six bogeys and a pair of double bogey-7s. Other notables that failed to survive the cut include: 147--Spencer Levin ... 150--S.J. Park ... 151--Bryce Molder ... 153--Nicholas Thompson.

Overnight leader J.B. Holmes followed his opening 62 at the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship with a 1-over-par 37-36=73 in today's second to post 9-under 135, good for a two-stroke lead after 36 holes.

Holmes opened with an unthinkable bad break at the par-5 first hole. After piping his drive 360 yards into the fairway, he nutted his approach to the front-center of the green, only to watch it roll out, curl right and into the water. He'd bogey the hole. After a birdie from 12'3" at the par-4 second, Holmes found water again on approach at the par-4 third, which he'd bogey. He'd go on to trade four birdies with two bogeys and a double bogey, the last of which occurred after he rinsed his drive at the par-4 finisher. Holmes' longest conversion of the round fell for par from just inside 13 feet at the par-4 seventh. He's been a nice run of late, so there's no reason to suspect that he won't figure into the equation at Trump National Doral on the weekend.
Mar 6 - 6:26 PM

Rory McIlroy pounded out a 2-under-par 36-34=70 in his second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

If McIlroy's close to his opening round didn't grab your attention, try today's, um, highlight (linked below) on for size. Cutting to the chase, after striping his tee ball into the fairway at the par-5 eighth hole, the Ulsterman rinsed his 3-iron approach left of the green. He then rinsed his 3-iron, giving it a quality sidearm toss into the drink. He'd bogey the hole, the third of four squares on the card, but McIlroy rallied for six birdies to post 1-under 143, coming to rest just five strokes back of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. His most notable conversions didn't travel as far as his 3-iron, but they're noteworthy nonetheless. After a 12-footer for birdie dropped at 2, he also negotiated tries from 23'11" and 21'5" at Nos. 7 and 17, respectively. After his round, he told Steve Sands of Golf Channel that it felt good at the time to hurl his club into the water, but discouraged kids from following suit. There's nothing like plying your craft in front of millions.
Mar 6 - 5:51 PM

Bubba Watson submitted a 3-under-par 35-34=69 for his second round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship to post 5-under 139 at the midpoint.

Today's loop around Trump National Doral was unique in that he went sub-70 without the benefit of a birdie. That's because Watson eagled the par-5 eighth and 10th holes to overcome an opening bogey at the par-5 first. Much like his eagle at the par-5 12th on Thursday, the lefty kicked in his third stroke at No. 8 today. His eagle at 10 came courtesy of a hole-out from a bunker 20 yards away. His longest conventional conversions dropped for par. The first traveled 16'2" at the 13th hole; the second ran 11 feet at 16. He also recorded a zero-putt five-yarder for par at 5. Watson signed his card sitting just one stroke off Adam Scott's 36-hole clubhouse lead.
Mar 6 - 5:35 PM

Alex Cejka crafted a bogey-free, 5-under-par 34-33=67 in today's second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 7-under 137 and assume outright possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This was as good as it gets in tricky scoring conditions at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico. Cejka split 10 (of 14) fairways and created 17 scoring opportunities. He buried five birdies, three of which on par 5s. He also walked off with birdie at the par-4 ninth. He's missed only seven GIR thus far and has just one bogey. Cejka is making his 287th career start on the PGA TOUR, but he's never won one.
Mar 6 - 3:40 PM

Andy Sullivan completed 36 holes of the Africa Open in 5-over-par 72-77=149 and missed the cut by six shots.

Don't feel too sorry for Sullivan. His win in the Joburg Open last week was his second European Tour victory in South Africa in two months and a smile has barely left his face. Needing a move today after an opening 72, he got on the wrong side of the risk-reward holes at East London GC and swallowed five bogeys and a double. Three birdies and an eagle-2 at 16 proved irrelevant. Other notables that missed the cut which fell at 1-under include: 144--Richie Ramsay; Raphaël Jacquelin ... 145--Oliver Fisher; George Coetzee ... 146--Richard Sterne; Michael Hoey ... 147--Tjaart Van Der Walt ... 148-- Grégory Bourdy ... 150--Chris Wood; Oliver Wilson ... 152--Peter Lawrie.
Mar 6 - 11:10 AM

In-form Byeong-Hun An posted two eagles and three birdies in a 7-under-par 33-32=65 to surge into the top 10 at the Africa Open.

The Korean is 5-for-5 on the European Tour this year and hasn't finished worse than T22. He's on track to keep that record going and perhaps delivering a first European Tour win after resuming normal service following his opening 73. An jumped to 6-under 138 via a bogey-free round at East London GC which started with a birdie at the first and continued with an eagle-3 at the third. Pars were his staple on Friday but he added birdies at 7 and 13 and took another leap with an eagle-2 at the short par-4 16th. He's currently five behind leader Matt Ford of England.
Mar 6 - 6:17 AM

Matt Ford posted the clubhouse lead of 11-under 133 at the Africa Open after touring East London GC in 6-under-par 34-32=66 on day two.

Ford, the joint first-round pacesetter with Kevin Phelan, took advantage of the calm morning conditions to paint his card with an eagle, six birdies, two bogeys and nine pars. The Englishman, who came through November's Q School at the 10th attempt, circled par breakers at 2, 3, 6 and 7 before swallowing a bogey at 9. Coming home, he birdied 10 and then holed out at the 12th for an eagle-2. Three clear at that stage, Ford traded a birdie and a bogey over the final six holes to complete an excellent opening 36 holes. So far he's split 25 (out of 30) fairways and hit 25 greens, missing just four today. Ahead of the afternoon wave starting their rounds, he's a shot clear of Spain's Eduardo De La Riva.

J.B. Holmes thrashed Trump National Doral's Blue Monster Course for a bogey-free, 10-under-par 32-30=62 in his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship.

Needless to say, he'll go to bed tonight with the outright lead and by four strokes to boot. Holmes split only seven (of 14) fairways, but he landed 15 greens in regulation to set up the brilliant round. While an eagle-3 at the 12th hole stands out -- he secured it with a tap-in after motoring his drive 376 yards off the tee and approach from 226 yards -- Holmes go to work elsewhere. He circled eight birdies, five of which from outside 11 feet including a pair from just outside 33 feet at Nos. 11 and 17. He also walked off in style, getting up and down from a greenside bunker at the par-3 ninth, pouring in the par save from 20-and-a-half feet. At last check, Holmes' strokes gained: tee-to-green clip measured 7.350. Remarkably, his score is just one off the course record set by Stephen Ames on the old, easier design in 2000.
Mar 5 - 5:36 PM

Thomas Björn withdrew during his opening round of the World Golf Championships-Cadillac Championship, citing personal issues, according to Mark Cannizzaro on Twitter.

Björn splashed his tee ball at the par-3 ninth before calling it quits. He was birdie-free 3-over with three bogeys through eight holes. This is his third mid-tournament WD in 112 career PGA TOUR starts. The first two occurred during the 2005 season.
Mar 5 - 2:15 PM

Mark Hubbard assumed outright possession of the clubhouse lead at the Puerto Rico Open with a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in his opening round.

As a fan of golf, you have to be pleased by this effort. It was one week ago today that the rookie was disqualified from The Honda Classic after opening with a 4-over 74 because he failed to register. (For a detailed rundown of the events of that day, click on the link to Alex Miceli's report at Golfweek.com below.) It was only two weeks before that when Hubbard made news by proposing to his girlfriend alongside the 18th green at Pebble Beach. The newly betrothed 25-year-old made more news inside the ropes today at Trump International Golf Club-Puerto Rico by exchanging six birdies with two bogeys. Four of the par breakers disappeared on his last six holes.
