Jason Day is listed in the published field of next week's Memorial.

This is the event that the Aussie circled when he elected to rest an injured left thumb over a start at THE PLAYERS. (He had also eschewed the RBC Heritage three weeks prior.) Day is 31st in FedExCup points, but has made only four starts this season. He's played only once (T20, Masters) since winning the Match Play three months ago. It's great news that he's verbally committed to Muirfield Village, but expect an update on his status prior to the opening round.

Troy Merritt fired a 10-under-par 31-30=61 in today's third round of the Quicken Loans National to post a record-setting, 54-hole tally of 14-under 199, good for the clubhouse lead.

Merritt carded six birdies over his first two rounds at RTJ Golf Club and nearly doubled that total on Moving Day, circling 11 birdies on his record-breaking loop. The 29-year-old's 61 set several tournament records, including: Best 18-hole score (previously 62 by Anthony Kim/2009, Hunter Mahan/2009 and Nick Watney/2011); and best 54-hole aggregate (200 by Tom Pernice Jr./2008, Anthony Kim/2009, Tiger Woods/2009 and Justin Rose/2010). His 11-birdie total was the most he's carded in a single round (281 career rounds) and his 61 tied a career low (2015 RBC Heritage/round two). Merritt began the day at 4-under (T35) and seven shots adrift. He landed 16 greens in regulation and his 11 conversions included five straight to open the round and four consecutive on Nos. 12-15. Remarkably, Merritt squared a bogey as well, three-putting from 37'5" on the par-5 eighth.

Michael Hoey blitzed Gregory Havret 7&6 on Saturday morning to reach the quarter-finals of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Match Play in Scotland.

The Northern Irishman was an unstoppable force in this last 16 clash at Murcar Links GC in Aberdeen and reached the turn 6up on his French opponent after five front-nine birdies. Havret's only success came at the fourth hole where he made eagle. Both players recorded double bogey-6s at the 10th before sharing pars at 11 and Hoey closed out the contest with a winning birdie-3 at the 12th. As a former winner of the Alfred Dunhill Links Championship, Hoey is a fine exponent of links golf and this victory follows an emphatic 5&4 win over Sweden's Kristoffer Broberg in the last 32. He'll now play Thailand's Kiradech Aphibarnrat (a 4&3 winner over Thomas Aiken) in the last eight. The other quarter-finals this afternoon are: Robert Karlsson v Richie Ramsay, David Howell v Chris Wood, Marc Warren v Tyrrell Hatton.

Patton Kizzire torched Golf Club at Thanksgiving Point for a 10-under-par 29-33=62 in today's second round of the Utah Championship.

The Web.com Tour's money leader hit 15 greens in regulation and connected for 12 birdies. That equals the most in a single round in Web.com Tour history. It's the sixth occurrence and first since Luke Guthrie in the opening round of the 2012 Cox Classic. Kizzire circled seven going out on the back side, including five in a row at one point. After reaching bogey-free 9-under through 14 holes, he double-bogeyed the par-4 sixth hole, and then walked off with three more birdies. At 15-under 129, he's four shots clear of overnight leader Kelly Kraft, who traded four birdies with two bogeys en route to a 2-under 35-35=70. Four golfers are five strokes in arrears of the 36-hole lead. Despite Kizzire's success in this his first year on the circuit, he entered this week winless in 20 career starts.

Nick Watney completed 36 holes of the Quicken Loans National in even-par 70-72=142, missing the cut by two strokes.

Playing alongside Tiger Woods as Watney did for the first two rounds can have its drawbacks, but the 2011 champion has struggled putting four rounds together for several months, so it's impossible to know if the grouping (that also included Bill Haas) was a distraction. Watney split 18 (of 28) fairways and hit 25 greens in regulation but traded seven birdies with seven bogeys. Other notables who missed the cut include: 141--Fabian Gomez; Gary Woodland; Daniel Summerhays; Scott Pinckney; Martin Laird; Andy Sullivan ... 142--Sangmoon Bae; Sean O'Hair; Johnson Wagner; Stewart Cink ... 143--Scott Brown ... 145--John Senden ... 146--Chris Stroud; Stephen Gallacher ... 147--Daniel Berger.

Overnight co-leader Ryo Ishikawa walked off his second round of the Quicken Loans National in style, burying a birdie try from 31 feet to score 3-under-par 36-32=68 and post 11-under 131 at the midpoint, good for outright possession of the lead.

Ishikawa closed with three consecutive birdies, in fact. His penultimate rolled 12'10" at the par-4 17th hole. He collected seven birdies on the day, including respective conversions from 20'3" and 10'5" at Nos. 1 and 6 to help offset four bogeys, including a pair of three-putts. At last check, he co-led the field in eagles (one; the hole-in-one in the opener) and birdies (13) and leads in putts per greens in regulation (1.552). The Bashful Prince also ranks inside the top 10 in both strokes-gained stats. He's piped 19 (of 28) fairways and hit 29 GIR. Ishikawa will be gunning for his first PGA TOUR title this weekend in his 116th start. He's one stroke clear of Kevin Chappell and Rickie Fowler.

Alex Noren did not commit to next week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational.

Noren joins Rory McIlroy (ankle) and Chris Kirk (hand) among the eligible taking a pass. The Swede qualified when he won the Nordea Masters in early June, but he hasn't pegged it anywhere since missing the cut at the U.S. Open in what is his only start since the win. Noren also withdrew early from The Open Championship, but details as to why have not surfaced.

Billy Hurley III added a 1-under-par 38-32=70 in today's second round of the Quicken Loans National to post 2-under 140 at the midpoint, low enough to make the cut.

Hurley III's ball-striking guided him to both red numbers at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club thus far. He split 10 (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation today en route to three birdies against two bogeys. His longest conversion ran 15'3" at the par-4 13th hole. In better news, BH3's father has been found. This is the entire press release from the Police Department in Leesburg, Virginia, where a missing person report was filed: "Willard (Bill) Hurley was located safe and sound this afternoon in Texas after a citizen recognized him from earlier media releases. The citizen contacted the local police department who responded to confirm his identity. Mr. Hurley left his residence in Leesburg on Sunday July 19, 2015 and was reported as missing by his family on Monday July 27, 2015. Mr. Hurley stated to our Detective that he is fine physically and is simply travelling. Mr. Hurley did not wish to reveal the reasons behind his departure."

Sam Walker posted a bogey-free 6-under-par 33-33=66 to share the halfway lead at the Madeira Islands Open – Portugal – BPI with Sweden's Pontus Widegren.

The duo share top spot on 11-under 133 and are a shot in front of first-round leader Antonio Hortal, who added a 71 to his opening 63. Walker was fast out of the gates with birdies at three of his opening four holes before staying steady in the strong winds with a run of 10 pars. He made another jump with a chip-in eagle-2 at 6 and added another birdie at 7 before completing a clean card with a pair of pars. The Englishman split only 8 (of 14) fairways at Clube de Golf do Santo da Serra on Friday but found 14 greens in regulation and was 4-for-4 in scrambling. Walker is a three-time Challenge Tour winner and clearly has a comfort level this week despite the tournament officially being classed as a full European Tour event. "It was tough out there," said the 37-year-old. "But if you played with the wind a little bit you’d create some chances and that's what I did. I play with a fade so I can use the wind to my advantage a little more than other people."

Jimmy Walker found only four (of 14) fairways at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club on Friday, but he still authored an 8-under-par 31-32=63 in today's second round of the Quicken Loans National.

The diameter of a hole in golf is just 4¼ inches, but it had to look much bigger to Walker today. Despite his imprecision off the tee, he hit 16 greens in regulation, and then connected for an eagle and seven birdies. His eagle was a gift at the par-4 second hole where his drive found a fairway bunker. From that lie 112 yards out, the 36-year-old holed out for the 2. Meanwhile, five of his birdies disappeared from outside 10 feet, including a 10-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 12th. His longest conventional conversions ran 30'8" and 22'6" at Nos. 4 and 7, respectively. Walker also salvaged from just outside 10 feet at the par-3 11th. At 8-under 134, he's just one stroke off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Second seed Marc Warren of Scotland beat Fabrizio Zanotti 3&2 at Murcar Links GC on Friday to book his place in the last 16 of the Saltire Energy Paul Lawrie Matchplay.

In a match where neither man could ever open up daylight, the two players arrived at the 14th tee still all square after the Paraguayan had levelled their last-32 contest again at the 13th. But a par put Warren back in front, he went 2up with a birdie-3 at the 15th and the local favorite closed out his opponent with a winning par at the short 16th. Warren, who edged out England's Richard Bland by 1 hole in the opening round of the 64-man straight knockout tournament, will now play Nicolas Colsaerts (a 4&3 winner over Trevor Fisher, Jr.) for a place in the last eight. With top seed James Morrison losing to Johan Carlsson, Warren is now the highest seed left in.

Tiger Woods has risen into a share of the 36-hole clubhouse lead at the Quicken Loans National with a 5-under-par 34-32=66 in today's second round.

With a 3-under 68 on Thursday, the 39-year-old tournament host is 8-under 134 at the midpoint. He opened the tournament with bogeys on three of his first four holes, but has since rattled in a field-high 12 (at the time he signed today's card). Today's set of six included conversions from 10'6", 19'10" and a fist-bumping-inducing 35'9" at Nos. 18, 4 and 8, respectively. Overall, Woods has striped 18 (of 28) fairways and landed 28 greens in regulation. With iron play the leading factor of success, at least early at Robert Trent Jones Golf Club, it's no surprise that his aggregate 4.778 in strokes gained: tee-to-green is outpacing his aggregate 1.226 in strokes gained: putting. But above all of that, it's refreshing to see the former top-ranked golfer in the world capitalize on scorable conditions. His game will no doubt be tested on the weekend.
