At 2-over-par 72-70=142, Matt Kuchar missed the cut on the number at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial.

Hey, it happens. Despite nine top 10s in 14 starts this season, he's also missed two cuts. It's why they stick the pegs in the ground. Kuchar split 14 (of 28) fairways and hit 24 greens in regulation at Colonial this week, but outbalanced six birdies (three in each round) with eight bogeys. Other notables that fell short include: 142--1985 and 1996 champ Corey Pevin; Kevin Na; Kevin Stadler; Brian Stuard; Ryo Ishikawa; Paul Casey ... 143--2007 champ Rory Sabbatini; Steven Bowditch ... 144-1999 champ Olin Browne; Pat Perez; John Huh; Nick Watney ... 145--Seung-yul Noh ... 146--Matt Every ... 154--Chesson Hadley ... 155--Rickie Fowler ... 157--1987 champ Keith Clearwater.

Matt Fitzpatrick struggled to a 3-over-par 37-37=74 in his second round at the Made in Denmark tournament and missed the cut by a shot.

Don't fall off your seat in surprise. At last week's D+D REAL Czech Masters, the young Englishman got up and down for par at the 72nd hole to secure his place in the 2016 European Ryder Cup team and his performance here smacks of a player feeling flat after an emotional high. Today, he couldn't get anything going and bogeys at 6, 14 and 18 along with 15 pars saw him land at 2-over 144, a shot the wrong side of the cut line. Other notables that will join Fitzpatrick and get the weekend off include: 144- Andrew Dodt, Brett Rumford, Gary Stal ... 145- Marc Warren, Andy Sullivan ... 146- Niclas Fasth, Ross Fisher ... 147- Ryder Cup captain Darren Clarke, Thomas Bjorn ... 150- Thorbjorn Olesen ... 152- David Horsey ... 153- Haydn Porteous, Eddie Pepperell.

Ryan Moore authored a 3-under-par 32-36=68 in today's second round of The Barclays to post 5-under 137, up nine spots on the live leaderboard to T2, and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

The 33-year-old is one (of 16) that have qualified for all 10 editions of the FedExCup Playoffs and he's making his 10th appearance in the kick-off event at The Barclays. He opened with a four-birdie two-bogey 69 and squared two bogeys again in R2, but overshadowed them with five birdies. The UNLV alum, who won his fifth TOUR title two starts ago at the John Deere, raced out to a blemish-free 4-under first half, circling Nos. 2 (16'5"), 4, 5 and 7. After the break, he outpaced a chip-in birdie-2 at 14 from 22'10" away with bogeys on 11 and 17, the latter a 3-putt from 87 feet. Moore is currently 4th in SG: Tee-to-Green with a cumulative 7.122 but 74th in SG: Putting (-0.801) and T84 in putts per GIR (1.875), including a 1.846 in R2.

Jordan Spieth caught fire with the putter en route to a 4-under-par 31-36=67 during round two of The Barclays, climbing to 4-under 138 to enter the weekend inside the top 10.

Spieth swallowed a double bogey at his opening hole after finding trouble in a greenside bunker at the par-4 10th. The Texas Longhorn rebounded nicely to play blemish-free over the final 17 holes. It was anything but stress-free, though, needing to save par from 7-to-11 feet on three occasions along the way. The highlight of the round came in the form of an approach shot, though. At the par-5 fourth hole he bounced his 194-yard approach shot just short of the green and it trickled to 2'3" from the cup for a tap-in eagle. This round was very reminiscent of 2015 Spieth as his tee-to-green game didn't sparkle, but he gained 3.166 strokes putting to vault up the leaderboard.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, Jamie Lovemark smoothed a week-tying-low bogey-free 5-under-par 34-32=66 in the second round of The Barclays to reach 2-under 140, up 69 places on the live leaderboard to T17.

Playing his fourth season on TOUR, the 28-year-old broke the ice and entered his FedExCup Playoffs debut ranked 43rd in the FEC standings. He kicked off with a two-birdie five-bogey 74, but rebounded in R2 for five birdies and 2.954 in SG: Putting. The USC product split nine (of 14) fairways and hit 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.615 putts per GIR. Four conversions dropped from between three and 11 feet, adding a 28-footer for birdie-2 at the 17th.

Jason Kokrak spun a 5-under-par 32-34=66 in today's second round of The Barclays to reach halftime on 2-under 140, up 71 places to T15 with play still in progress.

Making his fourth consecutive appearance, the 31-year-old labored to a two-birdie five-bogey 74 in the opener, but went eight shots better on Day 2. At the time he signed his card, he's at 5.026 SG: Total as opposed to a -1.874 in R1. The Xavier alum landed only five (of 14) fairways but hit 14 greens in regulation, posting 1.643 putts per GIR. His lone blemish was bogey-5 at the 10th (failed scramble), and kept it that way with a par-saver from the fringe (41'4") at the par-4 18th. The Charlotte, North Carolina, resident circled six birdies, including all three par 5s, after not birdieing any of them in R1. He holed-out for birdie-4 at the seventh from 25'7" away in the rough, and also dropped a 20-footer at the par-5 13th.

Bradley Dredge tacked on a 5-under-par 31-35=66 to his opening 63 to post 13-under 129 after two rounds of the Made in Denmark tournament, good enough for a three-stroke lead.

A shot off the pace at start of play, the Welshman roared to the turn with a rush of birdies, those circles coming at 2, 5, 6, 8 and 9. He couldn't maintain that pace on the back nine with a single birdie at 14 wiping out a bogey at 13 but the hard work was done by then. His afternoon lap at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort put him three in front of Joakim Lagergren and four clear of Richard Sterne and Thomas Pieters. Dredge was one of the obvious course horses coming into this week having finished second and sixth in two previous visits to the course. Now he'll be hoping to turn his 36-hole lead into a long overdue first European Tour win since the 2006 Omega European Masters in Switzerland.

Richard Sterne plotted his way round Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort to post a second round 4-under-par 33-34=67 which gave him a halfway total of 9-under 133, enough to lead the morning starters at lunch on day two of the Made in Denmark tournament.

The South African holds a one shot advantage over fellow finisher Tom Lewis, but when he signed his card Bradley Dredge was ahead of him on the course at 10-under. Sterne started his round on fire, making birdie at 1 and 4 before adding an eagle-3 at the short par-5 6th. He squared 7 and 10 but back-to-back circled holes at the 15th and 16th took him clear. He is seeking a sixth top 15 result of the season and although it is his event debut he was T3 in the Challenge Tour's Danish Open back in 2002. Should he lead at the end of the day it will be only the third time he has done so on the European Tour - and both previous occasions came in one fortnight in 2013, when T2 in the Dubai Desert Classic and winner of the Joburg Open.

Following an opening round 3-over-par 35-39=74, Henrik Stenson has withdrawn from The Barclays, citing a knee injury.

The Swede split just eight (of 14) fairways in round one en route to 11 greens in regulation. Very low numbers, especially by his lofty standards. The real cuplrit was the flat stick though, missing four putts from inside seven feet, losing 1.891 strokes putting on the day. Entering the week ranked 14th in the FedExCup race, he will be able to return next week at TPC Boston, if his knee is up to the task. This is the same knee (right knee) that required surgery last December.

Martin Laird torched the Black Course at Bethpage State Park en route to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-34=66 during his opening round of The Barclays, grabbing an early share of the clubhouse lead with Patrick Reed.

The Scot split just five (of 14) fairways but gained 2.61 strokes approaching-the-green to still manage 15 greens in regulation. While the iron-play was on point, he still needed plenty of clutch putting to maintain a clean card. On the day he splashed in five putts from outside seven feet and also holed a 22'2" birdie from the fringe at the par-3 third. Laird missed the cut at the 2009 U.S. Open in his Bethpage Black debut and returned with a measly T71 at the 2012 Barclays. He's off to a much better start this time around, but he'll need to hit more than five fairways per round if he wants to keep his name in the mix.

Tom Lewis had the European Tour's first ever 59 in his sights before stumbling late in a 9-under-par 28-34=62 in the Made in Denmark tournament, a lap which gave him a share of the lead with Joakim Lagergren and Thomas Pieters.

After sinking a 35-foot putt for eagle at his 13th hole (No. 4) to reach 12-under on the par 71 at Himmerland Golf & Spa Resort, the young Englishman just needed to par in to rewrite history. With a par 5 to come, the deck looked stacked in his favor but he missed a 5ft par putt at 5 and dropped further shots at 8 and 9 to see his dream go up in smoke. There had been 18 previous 60s by 17 different players (Darren Clarke had done it twice) before today but, once more, the European Tour's impregnable barrier couldn't be breached. Lewis, who lost his card last year, had put himself in position with a sensational run of seven birdies in his first eight holes and he came within inches of another at 9 which would have matched the European Tour nine-hole record of 27. He threw in three more circles at 1, 2 and 3 before the eagle at 4 but it wasn't to be. Still, the 62 was good enough for a three-way tie at the top, the trio ending the day a shot in front of Bradley Dredge.

Patrick Reed kept a clean card en route to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 31-35=66 during the opening round of The Barclays, giving him the early clubhouse lead.

The 26-year-old missed just four greens on the day, but did most of his damage with the flat stick. He opened on the back nine and saved par from 21'8" at the par-4 11th. His lag putting was great as his other eight holed putts before making the turn came from inside four feet. From there, he really stretched out the distance, splashing home four putts from outside 10 feet, including a 16'7" eagle splash at the par-5 fourth hole. Reed walked off the course gaining 3.48 strokes putting. Reed entered the week ranked eighth in the Ryder Cup standings, so his motivation to contend goes deeper than just wanting to make a deep run into the FedExCup Playoffs.
