Dustin Johnson has withdrawn from this week's World Golf Championships-Bridgestone Invitational due to personal reasons, according to USATODAY's Steve DiMeglio on Twitter.

DJ's history of withdrawals is well-documented, and he's entitled not to compete for whatever reason, but he'll be a notable absentee nonetheless. Expect an update prior to next week's PGA Championship. UPDATE: It took nearly an hour after DiMeglio's scoop, but Johnson has been removed from the published field.

PGA TOUR and Greenbrier Resort officials announced today that The Greenbrier Classic, scheduled for July 7-10, has been cancelled due to the devastating flooding caused by record rainfalls throughout West Virginia.

"We are heartbroken by the devastation that the residents of West Virginia are experiencing at this time and the reports of lives lost due to the terrible flooding," said PGA TOUR Commissioner Tim Finchem. The press release also mentioned that The Old White TPC, host course for the tournament, suffered extensive damage from the flooding and is beyond reasonable repair to conduct the tournament, TOUR officials said. Danny Lee would have been the defending champion after winning last year's edition in a four-man playoff to claim his first TOUR title in his 98th career start.

The third day of the BMW International Open at Gut Larchenhof was more or less a non-starter, as the leading 20 golfers never even teed off.

Play was suspended at 12 noon and the players never returned to the course. Just four hours and nine minutes of play was possible on day three. Round 3 will restart at 7.30am with the same order maintained for Round 4 but playing in threeballs. Henrik Stenson, Raphael Jacquelin and Kiradech Aphibarnrat, the 36-hole leaders, are scheduled to be the last group teeing off for their final rounds at 1.30pm.

World No. 62 Ryan Palmer fizzled out to a 5-over-par 38-38=76 during round two of the Quicken Loans National, finishing at 3-over 145 to miss the cut by three strokes.

Palmer entered the event as the 14th-highest rated golfer in the field according to the Official World Golf Ranking, but there is a reason the game is not played on paper. Palmer missed eight (of 14) fairways, found the water twice, and lost -3.554 strokes around-the-green during today's round. Palmer is one of the most consistent golfers on TOUR (52-for-62 since start of 2013-14) but not immune to missed cuts. A total of 78 golfers made it through the cut line at even-par 142 but other notables joining Palmer with early trunk slams include: 143- Defending champ Troy Merritt... 144- Luke List; Si Woo Kim; Tim Wilkinson... 145- Jordan Niebrugge; Vaughn Taylor... 146- Russell Henley; Rory Sabbatini (return from neck surgery)... 147- Adam Hadwin

Billy Hurley III scorched Congressional Country Club with a 6-under-par 33-32=65 in round two of the Quicken Loans National, giving him a piece of the 36-hole lead at 11-under 131.

BH3 is taking full advantage of local knowledge here at Congressional CC, gaining 7.980 strokes over the field with his approach game thus far. With his irons dialed in, it's just a matter of making some putts and that's exactly what he did today after missing his fair share on day one. During round two, he splashed home four putts from outside eight feet, the longest being a 13'8" birdie roll at the par-5 ninth hole. Gamers who followed the local or course history narratives are getting rewarded handsomely through two rounds. The Annapolis, Maryland, resident entered the week ranked 198th in the FedExCup race, but we can throw any notion of form out the window this week as Hurley III clearly loves the layout at Congressional.

Overnight leader Jon Rahm kept his foot on the gas with a 4-under-par 32-35=67 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, grabbing a piece of the 36-hole lead with Billy Hurley III at 11-under 131.

The ASU standout making his first start as a professional is showing no signs of nerves. On day one he flashed his brilliance on the greens and today he gained 3.831 strokes tee-to-green. Most notable were back-to-back iron shots that he stuck to inside five inches for tap-in birdies. The first was a 138-yard tee shot at the par-4 third and the second was from 168 yards at the par-4 fourth. Rahm is showcasing a versatile game, carding just two bogeys through his first 36 holes as a professional golfer. Hurley III and Rahm are three clear of the field as we head into the weekend at Congressional Country Club.

Webb Simpson coasted to a bogey-free, 3-under-par 35-35=68 during round two of the Quicken Loans National, reaching 7-under 135 at the midpoint.

The Wake Forest product split 10 (of 14) fairways and landed 17 greens in regulation. It was that ball-striking that put him in position to score throughout the day. His flat stick had other plans, as he splashed home just one putt from outside six feet, a 14'9" birdie roll at the par-4 11th hole. Despite the lack of lengthy putts made, Simpson walked off the course gaining 0.681 strokes putting, which is fantastic when you compare it to his 2015-16 baseline of -0.331 strokes per round. That same weapon (the putter) will be the wildcard that determines his fate over the weekend.

George McNeill has withdrawn from this week's Quicken Loans National with a back injury, he was 6-over through 27 holes at the time of the WD.

McNeill is having an interesting season, to say the least. He is now 6-for-18 with a pair of DQs and a WD. He opened the week with a 4-over-par 36-39=75 where he traded two birdies with four bogeys and a double. He started on the back nine today and swallowed another double bogey early at the par-4 11th. McNeill circled three birdies before reaching the 18th tee box. From there he found a greenside bunker, then water, and ultimately carded a triple-bogey 7 before walking off the course with the back injury. Gamers should steer clear of McNeill in all formats until he can show some semblance of form.

Arriving on the heels of three straight missed cuts, Rickie Fowler righted the ship with a 3-under-par 34-34=68 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National to reach the weekend at 6-under 136.

Fowler entered the week ranked first in bogey avoidance and you could see why today. He opened on the back nine and saved par from 7'10" (twice) and 36'11" in his first four holes. His lone bogey came at the par-4 14th hole where he could only advance his ball 40 feet out of the rough after an errant tee shot. It was his first bogey of the week. Fowler gained 3.501 strokes during his round today, and 87 percent of those came on his approach play (17 greens in regulation). Fowler is currently two off the pace set by Vijay Singh and in great position entering the weekend.

Hall of Famer Vijay Singh bombarded the back nine of Congressional Country Club en route to a 5-under-par 35-31=66 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National, staking his claim as the early clubhouse leader at 8-under 134.

The 53-year-old is not known for his work with the putter (121st in strokes gained putting) but he got the flat stick working today. He rolled in seven putts from outside six feet, including five from outside 10 feet. The longest was a 15'8" birdie splash at the par-4 fifth hole and he walked off the course gaining 2.912 strokes with the putter today. From holes No. 5 through 17, Singh played his ball at 8-under (eight birdies, five pars) but ended on a sour note by finding water at the par-4 18th, swallowing a bogey to wrap up the day. The Life Member has just one top 25 on the season, a T6 at the Honda Classic, but if his putter stays hot over the weekend we could see another one this week.

Robert Garrigus survived a double bogey to sign for a 2-under-par 36-33=69 during the second round of the Quicken Loans National to grab a very early stake on the clubhouse lead at 6-under 136.

Garrigus arrived as a course horse and he's digging into that course history bank to get into contention yet again. On the day, he landed 13 greens in regulation, but gained 2.927 strokes approaching-the-green, so his iron play was better than raw GIR numbers would indicate. On the greens, he splashed home five putts from outside six feet, including a 20'1" birdie blast on the par-4 11th hole. Through two rounds, he currently ranks ninth in the field in regards to strokes gained putting.

With a 7-under-par 32-33=65 in Friday's second round, Henrik Stenson moved into a share of the lead with Raphael Jacquelin at the BMW International Open in Germany. EDIT: Late in the day Kiradech Aphibarnrat made it a thee-way tie for the lead.

Stenson arrived at 11-under 133 through 36 holes following a bogey-free lap of Gut Larchenhof, a course where he's previously finished runner-up twice. The Swede, who pulled out of last week's US Open with "minor neck and knee issues", started fast with birdies at 10, 12 and 13 before adding another at 16 to turn in 32. He splashed further red at 1, 4 and 7 to match Jacquelin's halfway lead. For the second day running, Stenson his 12 (of 14) fairways while he's missed just 3 greens over his opening two rounds. Today, he needed just 28 putts, six less than in his day-one 68.
