The restart of the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic has been delayed by one hour due to fog. UPDATE: Play resumed at 8:01 a.m. CT.

A Dense Fog Advisory for the area was in effect until 9:00 a.m. This explains the pair of 30-minute delays this morning. Phil Mickelson was walking to the first tee to begin his second round on Friday afternoon when what would be the last delay of the day struck at 2:15 p.m. His early reconnaissance work at Pinehurst No. 2 is looking extremely shrewd right now as the SJC seems destined for a Monday finish. Now that the fog has burned off in Memphis, the question remains for how long. Thunderstorms are expected to fire again right around noon.

In a battle of the undefeated, 8-seed Alex Noren got the best of 20 Brooks Koepka 3-and-1 in Round of 16 play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and advances to the quarterfinals to face 1-seed Dustin Johnson.

Koepka, the Group 9 winner, departs with a 3-1-0 record, while Noren will square off against Johnson a bit later, both 4-0-0. The 34-year-old Swede, who didn't have to play at all on Friday (due to Francesco Molinari's WD), never trailed in the match versus the younger American. He won the first and the third with pars, lost holes 5 and 6 with Koepka circling the fifth for his first birdie while Noren labored to double bogey-7. Noren won the seventh and ninth with 3s, the latter with birdie to go 2 UP, while Koepka narrowed with birdie-3 at the 10th. Noren extended to 3 UP thru 13 holes, and won at the 17th when Koepka hooked his tee ball to the par 3 into the hazard and conceded the hole and the match.

1-seed Dustin Johnson knocked out 44-seed Zach Johnson 5-and-4 in Round of 16 play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will do battle with 8-seed Alex Noren in the quarterfinals.

DJ was the Group 1 champ with a 3-0-0 record while ZJ was the Group 16 winner with a 2-1-0 mark and suffered his second setback of the week. Through four matches complete, the World No. 1 has yet to trail in the 60 holes he's had to play thus far. He'll be facing the Swede Noren in a battle of undefeated's. DJ took a 1 UP lead with a 14-footer for birdie-3 at the first, won the third on concession, and gave one back to Zach's first (of only two) two birdies on the day at the fourth. He extended to 4 UP by the break, winning holes 6, 8 and 9 (bookending that run with birdies), lost the 12th with par, but then brushed aside the elder Johnson with back-to-back birdies at 13 and 14, both from inside of 15 feet.

First-timer and 54-seed Hideto Tanihara upended 12-seed Paul Casey 2-and-1 in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will square off against 47-seed Ross Fisher in the quarterfinals.

The Japanese up-and-comer was an improbable winner of Group 5 with a 2-0-1 mark while Casey zipped through Group 12 with a 3-0-0 record. Tanihara never trailed in the match, though Casey got the contest to all square three separate times. The 38-year-old Tokyo resident went 1 UP with birdie-3 at No. 1, Casey leveled with par at the second, but he bogeyed five and seven, giving Tanihara a 2 UP margin. That scenario switched for Casey at eight and 10, with the Englishman getting back to all square with pars. Tanihara won the 11th (concession), lost the 13th to Casey's third birdie of the match, but then closed out with a birdie-birdie run on 16 and 17, both from inside of five feet.

47-seed Ross Fisher eliminated 13-seed Bubba Watson 4-and-3 in Round of 16 play at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face 54-seed Hideto Tanihara in quarterfinal action later today.

Watson was the Group 13 winner and departs with a 2-1-1 record. Fisher prevailed in Group 4 with a 2-1-0 record, advancing in a 2-man playoff. Watson took the early 1 UP lead with birdie-3 at hole 1, but the Englishman leveled it with a birdie-3 of his own at 2 (from 13'7"). Fisher won the third (with par), lost the fifth to Watson's second birdie from inside of 10 feet, and went 1 DOWN with bogey-4 at 7. Fisher squared the match at eight (par) and went 1 UP thru nine with another par 4, and never relinquished the lead from there. He went 2 UP with birdie-2 at 11 (21-footer from the fringe), went 3 UP with par at the 13th, and then knocked out Watson with a hole-out 3 from a greenside bunker at the par-4 15th.

42-seed Bill Haas outlasted 46-seed Kevin Na 1 UP in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face 14-seed Phil Mickelson (4-0-0) in the quarterfinals later this afternoon, while Na departs with a 2-2-0 overall record.

Haas was the Group 11 winner (2-1-0), advancing out of the Group Stage with a 6-hole playoff win, while Na was the Group 6 winner with the same record and also in sudden death. For the first time this week, Haas had to go the distance, with neither opponent reaching more than a 2 UP advantage, which is where Haas found himself thru nine holes. On the inward half, Na battled back to all square, winning the 13th and 14th with birdie-3s, but the Wake Forest alum won 15 with par and that's where the match would end with each players finishing with a final birdie at 16 and two pars.

62-seed Soren Kjeldsen sent first-timer and 48-seed William McGirt packing with a 5-and-4 triumph in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Technologies Match Play and will face 21-seed Jon Rahm (4-0-0) in the quarterfinals.

The Dane was the improbable Group 2 winner with a perfect 3-0-0 record while McGirt was the surprise winner of Group 15, also unblemished. This match was all square thru four holes, with Kjeldsen taking the par-4 second with par and McGirt leveling with birdie-3 at three from 21'10". The 41-year-old Euro circled the par-4 fifth (5'6") to go 1 UP and never looked back from there. He took a 3 UP lead with pars at eight and nine, went 4 UP with his fourth birdie of the match at the par-5 12th (14'5"), and closed out the 37-year-old North Carolina native with a 46-incher for birdie-3 at 14.

14-seed Phil Mickelson distpached 28-seed Marc Leishman 4-and-3 in Round of 16 action at the World Golf Championships-Dell Match Play and will meet the winner of the 42-seed Bill Haas and 46-seed Kevin Na match later this afternoon. UPDATE: Mickelson will face Haas in the quarterfinals.

The 46-year-old won Group 14 with a perfect 3-0-0 record while Leishman won Group 3 with a 2-1-0 mark, eventually prevailing in a 3-man playoff. Through four matches thus far, this is the furthest that Mickelson's been tested, but that said, it never was close. The Hall of Famer took a 1 UP lead with birdie at the par-4 third (from 13'2"), went 2 UP at four (concession), and went 3- and 4 UP, respectively, with a par-birdie finish to the first nine. He went 5 UP thru 10 (another concession), gave two holes back at 11 and 12, the former to the Aussie's second birdie of the match (par-4 fifth), but closed him out at hole 15 with a third concession of the match.

Rahm was the Group 7 winner with a 3-0-0 record while Howell III won Group 10 with a 2-1-0 mark, prevailing in a 3-man playoff. Rahm took an early 2 UP lead with a 20'3" birdie-3 at two and 27-footer to circle the par-3 fourth. He gave one hole back with a concession at the par-5 sixth, but won the ninth on concession to turn 3 UP. The Spaniard circled the 10th and 12th, both from inside of six feet to go 4- and 5 UP, respectively, and then closed out the elder Howell III with a 4'7" birdie at the par-4 14th. Rahm, who closed out Sergio Garcia yesterday by the exact same margin, will meet the winner of the 48-seed William McGirt and 62-seed Soren Kjeldsen match later this afternoon.

Making his tournament debut, World No. 82 and pre-tourney co-fave Graeme McDowell bogeyed his final three holes en route to a 1-under-par 32-39=71 and at 2-under 71-71=142, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 81 players from a field of 130 pros and two amateurs made the cut on 3-under 141 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. McDowell, a 16/1 outright, opened with a four-birdie three bogey 71 and began his second frame with a 4-under bogey-free first half, circling birdies at Nos. 2 and 6 and eagling the par-5 fifth. He came home in 4-over however, outbalancing birdie-3 at 12 with bogeys at 11 and 16-18. Other notable early exits include: 142- Ian Poulter; Matt Jones; Dominic Bozzelli ... 143- Graham DeLaet; 2012 champ George McNeill; Nick Taylor ... 144- Ryo Ishikawa ... 145- Seamus Power; Camilo Villegas ... 146- Andres Romero; Thorbjorn Olesen ... 150- Brandon Hagy.

First-round leader and World No. 334 Trey Mullinax back-pedaled to an even-par 34-38=72 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 9-under 135, down 10 spots to T11, two back of 36-hole tri-leaders Bryson DeChambeau, D.A. Points, and Bill Lunde.

The PGA TOUR rookie led by one (over Points) with a career-low 63. It was his first 18-hole lead/co-lead in his 15th career start, 12th as a member. The 24-year-old was even-par thru 13 holes on Friday when play was suspended and returned on Saturday morning (with 42 others) to play his final five in even, exchanging birdies at 14 and 18 with bogeys at 16 and 17. After circling nine in R1, he added seven in R2 on just 11 greens in regulation, but cancelled out all of them with five bogeys and double bogey-6 at the 13th just prior to the stoppage.

With lift, clean and place in effect, World No. 1033 Bill Lunde styled a bogey-free 4-under-par 33-35=68 in the two-day second round of the Puerto Rico Open to post 11-under 133, good for a share of the 36-hole lead with Bryson DeChambeau and D.A. Points.

The 43-year-old is making his 142nd career start on the PGA TOUR with one win to his credit, the now-defunct Turning Stone Resort Championship. He won the final edition of the event in 2010, which was played in Verona, New York, coming from four back with 6-under 66 to win by one over J.J. Henry. The UNLV alum's last full season on TOUR was 2015 when he went 8-for-18 with one top 25 and finished 197th in the FedExCup standings. He was 4-under thru 15 holes on Friday when play was suspended and returned Saturday morning to write down three more pars. The San Diego native found 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, circling Nos. 2, 3, 5 and 12.
