Brian Harman spun an 8-under-par 32-31=63 in his opening round of the John Deere Classic to join the clubhouse co-leaders.

For a guy with a penchant of going low, it's saying something that this is his lowest aggregate since a second-round 63 at the 2012 RBC Canadian Open. Harman went 8-for-16 in birdie chances today and added a five-yarder from the fringe at the par-4 13th hole. His longest conventional conversions stretched 11'4" and 21'7" at Nos. 11 and 12, respectively. But since he two-putted three times from nine feet and in, including a miss from just 38 inches at the par-5 second hole, his strokes gained-putting landed at about 0.000 when he walked off.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 355 Tom Lovelady smoothed a bogey-free 3-under-par 33-34=67 on Moving Day at The Honda Classic, vaulting 33 places on the live leaderboard to T26 on 2-over 212.

The Jupiter, Florida, resident logs just the third blemish-free round of the week thus far. He opened with 75-70, one of 18 players to make the cut on the number, and is now bogey-free 5-under for his last 26 holes. Additionally, the 24-year-old was 7-over thru his first nine holes in Round 1, so it's been quite a turnaround. On Saturday, he landed seven (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 0.729 strokes off-the-tee and 0.885 around-the-green. The Alabama alum carded three birdie-3s at holes 6, 8 and 10, two from between 10 and 28 feet, posting 1.786 putts per GIR and 1.777 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. He entered the week 4-for-10 on the season with one top 25 (T18, Sanderson Farms).

Oliver Fisher thrashed a superb 7-under-par 33-32=65 to claim a share of the 54-hole lead alongside Eddie Pepperell on 16-under 200 in the third round of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters at Doha GC.

The 29-year-old Englishman scorched his way to the top of the leaderboard with a blistering finish that gives him a Sunday shot at a second European Tour title (his first was the 2011 Czech Masters). His front nine included three birdies at 3, 5 and 8. He added a fourth at 11 from 12’0" but bogey followed at the 12th. The best was yet to come as he closed with four par breakers in a row at 15, 16, 17 and 18. At the par-3 17th he converted from 10’0" before draining from twice that distance on the final green. Ranked 174th on the Race to Dubai he needed a good week to kickstart his season. Victory would revitalise his career. He and Pepperell lead by two from Sean Crocker who is himself two clear of five players on 14-under. "The most important thing for tomorrow is to go out and enjoy it," he said. "I'm good friends with Eddie so hopefully we'll have a bit of fun out there."

Defending champion and World No. 7 Rickie Fowler stumbled to a 6-over-par 36-40=76 in the second round of The Honda Classic and at 7-over 71-76=147, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 76 players from a field of 144 made the cut of 5-over 145, 18, T59 on the number. Fowler, a pre-tourney 9/1 fave outright, misses his second cut of the season in five events, second in his last three starts (Farmers). After missing his first two cuts at the Honda in 2010 and 2011, he had cashed in six straight, and today's 76 matched his worst round at PGA National (2011/R1). The Jupiter, Florida, resident is in the published field at next week's WGC-Mexico. He totaled 16 (of 28) fairways and 21 greens in regulation, overshadowing four birdies with nine bogeys and a double, and ranked 125th in SG: Putting (-2.903). Other notable early exits include: 146- Patrick Reed; Tyrrell Hatton .. 147- Ryan Palmer; Graeme McDowell; Brandt Snedeker .. 148- Billy Horschel; Charles Howell III .. 149- Russell Knox; Kevin Kisner .. 152- Chesson Hadley; Patton Kizzire.

Jamie Lovemark soared up the leaderboard with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 during round two of The Honda Classic, joining Luke List with a share of the 36-hole lead on 3-under 137, his first career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR.

The Jupiter, Florida resident is one of the longest hitters on TOUR but he's taking the recommended route here at PGA National, opting for less-than-driver quite frequently. Today, he blasted just one drive over 285 yards. The lack of drivers has yielded more fairways, splitting 11 (of 14) today en route to 12 greens in regulation. That was good for +1.575 strokes approaching-the-green (+3.148 SG:APP in R1). Lovemark does not appear fazed by these difficult winds which is a good sign for the weekend as the forecast doesn't change much over the next two days. Joining Luke List as 36-hole co-leaders, this will be Lovemark's first career 36-hole lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR.

Tiger Woods moved up seven spots on the live leaderboard after recording a 1-over-par 34-37=71 during round two of The Honda Classic, arriving at the midpoint on 1-over 141 which places him in a share of 14th place, just four strokes off the leader Luke List.

Woods showed a lot of promise in round one and it was more of the same today. He traded two birdies with one bogey over the first 10 holes. He was staring down a bogey at the par-4 11th but showcased his signature fist pump after sinking a clutch 12'8" par-saver. The 42-year-old was sitting inside the top 10 at that point but The Bear Trap won the battle with Woods today. Stepping on the 15th tee box he rinsed his tee ball which led to a double-bogey 5. On the following hole, he got too aggressive on his par putt and swallowed a bogey. In typical Tiger fashion, he bounced back nicely at the following hole, stiffing his tee ball to 12 feet before rolling it in for a birdie. While his off-the-tee game is still a bit rusty he is gaining 5.153 strokes from fairway to flag (approach, around-the-green, and putting). This is a tremendous start for Woods but he can't afford to let his foot off the gas because this week's course can sneak up and bite you quickly.

Battling blustery conditions, Luke List won the battle with PGA National's Champion Course during round two of The Honda Classic, sprinting toward a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to reach 3-under 137 on the week, good for the early clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With play completed, List co-leads with Jamie Lovemark and his 66 was the low round of the day.

Going off in a twosome alongside Thomas Pieters, the duo was able to race their way around PGA National and play much of the course before the heavy winds arrived. Other than a good tee time, List racked up this score with strong ball-striking, landing 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.804 strokes approaching-the-green. That included a 146-yard approach that landed inside two feet, a 205-yard tee shot that landed inside five feet, and a 279-yard approach that landed inside six feet. If this lead holds then it will go in the books as his third career 36-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR, with the latest coming this fall at THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. He went on to finish T5 in that event. With the course currently playing 3.33 strokes over-par, this should easily beat the field average by more than seven shots by day's end. One of the strongest rounds from anyone this year.

Julia Suri fired an impressive bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 in round two of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters but his 36-hole total of 3-under 141 was a shot outside the cut line.

The American had much work to do after his opening 74 at Doha GC and nearly played himself into the weekend after a round featuring five birdies and 13 pars. Four of those came on his opening nine, meaning he needed another two coming home but Suri could only find one more and four closing pars meant the axe fell. Make a mental note for future starts, though, that he can score well on this course. Others to miss the cut of 4-under 140 included: 141- Jordan Smith, Shubhankar Sharma, Matthew Southgate ... 142- Thorbjorn Olesen, Richie Ramsay ... 143- Jeunghun Wang (defending champion).

With a trio of closing birdies, Adrian Otaegui completed a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in round two of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters, his halfway total of 11-under 133 giving him the clubhouse lead. UPDATE: Otaegui ended the day as solo leader. He was also 36-hole leader at last year's Open de France, eventually finishing T7.

That beats the previous mark of 10-under and, with the day coming to a close, the Spaniard has a one-shot advantage over Erik Van Rooyen, Eddie Pepperell and Gregory Havret. Building on his opening 67, Otaegui started out with a birdie at Doha GC's opening hole and banked another red number at the 7th. The World No. 148 opened his back nine with circles at 10 and 11 before dropping his first and only shot of the week so far at the par-3 13th. That left him at 8-under but he stormed to the top of the leaderboard with gains at 16, 17 and 18. The 25-year-old has disappointing course form of MC-68-MC but was T5 after 54 holes of last week's Oman Open, eventually finishing T12, so had some confidence coming in.

Sean Crocker made eagle at two of his final three holes to give what appeared to be a modest second round at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters a dramatic late lift, the 4-under-par 37-31=68 ensuring him the clubhouse lead of 9-under 135. UPDATE: Crocker finished R2 in T6, two shots behind solo leader Adrian Otaegui.

Wow! What a finish. The American carded a bogey-free 67 on day one at Doha GC and set out with a birdie today. All looked good until he lost his way with bogeys at 6, 7 and 12 against just a single red number at 10. On the 14th tee, he sat over par for the day but a birdie there lit the fire and then he took just two blows on the short 281-yard par-4 16th and followed it with a walk-off eagle at the 539-yard closer. The 21-year-old is turning heads on the European Tour this year after two top sevens and a T16 from his six starts on this year's Race to Dubai. He has no official status on the European Tour and played his first four events of the season on invites.

Adam Schenk handed in one (of just two) bogey-free rounds today, styling a 1-under-par 34-35=69 during day one of The Honda Classic, placing him three off the early pace set by Alex Noren and Webb Simpson.

The PGA TOUR rookie battled with windy conditions today but may have gotten the tiniest of advantages today. The wind the seemed to die down at the very end of the day and Schenk went off in the final group of the day. For Schenk is was all about steady play on the tee box, striping nine (of 14) fairways to gain 1.93 strokes off-the-tee. The Purdue product played patient golf from there and it finally paid off with a 6'7" birdie conversion at the par-4 eight hole (his 17th hole of the round). Schenk joins Daniel Berger as the only golfers to record bogey-free rounds today. Currently 12th on the leaderboard, this will be the first time Schenk has positioned himself inside the top 15 after any round on the PGA TOUR.
Feb 22 - 6:42 PM

Webb Simpson soared up the leaderboard during round one of The Honda Classic, cruising to a 4-under-par 32-34=66, good for a share of the clubhouse lead alongside Alex Noren.

Simpson was steady in his tee-to-green game, splitting nine (of 14) fairways en route to 11 greens in regulation. It was his flat stick that really did the heavy lifting today, though. Simpson didn't miss any bunnies but he also converted four putts from outside 11 feet, two of them coming from 21+ feet. The Wake Forest product appears to be glad to be back on bermuda greens as he walked off the course gaining 3.694 strokes putting. This will go in the books as Simpson's seventh career first-round lead/co-lead with the latest coming at the 2015 Sony Open. Entering the week he was just 1-for-3 at PGA National but this is his first appearance since the 2011 edition.
