Jason Kokrak feasted on TPC Four Seasons Las Colinas in round two of the AT&T Byron Nelson, firing a bogey-free, 8-under-par 31-31=62, good for low round of the day to reach 12-under 128 at the midpoint, five shots clear from solo-second Billy Horschel.

Kokrak was no slouch on day one as he traded six birdies with two bogeys. He took it to another level today as he was throwing darts all day long. Kokrak circled eight birdies today, and all of them came on putts from 14 feet or shorter. He walked off the course gaining 3.738 strokes approaching-the-green, but it's been a balanced attack thus far, ranking inside the top 15 in all of the strokes gained sub-categories. This falls two shy of the course record set by Keegan Bradley in 2013, but it does go in the books as a new career low on the PGA TOUR for Kokrak. His previous best was a 63 in R1 of the 2013 CareerBuilder. In Kokrak's only other 36-hole lead (2016 Northern Trust) he would follow it up with rounds of 70-68 to finish T2.

Scott Jamieson overcame a poor start to steer his way into a tie for the lead late in the second round of the BMW PGA Championship; his 2-under-par 35-35=70 gave him a 7-under 137 which equalled the clubhouse lead of Thomas Pieters.

The Scot was flagging early in his round, making a bogey-5 at the 1st and then adding double bogey-6 at the 3rd. There was a brief recovery with birdie-4 at the 4th only to give the shot back at the 5th. His response was magnificent as he ticked six of the next seven holes (6, 7, 9, 10, 11 and 12). That left him one clear of Pieters on 8-under, but a bogey at the par-4 15th and a failure to birdie either of the par-5 final two holes meant he shared honors with the Belgian. Should they not be passed it would be a third 36-hole lead on the European Tour for Jamieson (including ties, but not including the 36-hole victory he achieved with the weather-shortened 2012 Nelson Mandela Invitational).

J.J. Spaun withdrew from the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational prior to his round-two tee time. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Spaund twirled a 1-over-par 35-36=71 on day one. Nothing in his stats indicated an injury but most noticable blunder was a missed putt from 18 inches at the par-4 17th. While his opening round was nothing to write home about, Spaun was still inside the cut line at that point. The PGA TOUR rookie was set to tee off at 7:11 a.m. CT this morning but he instead withdrew from the event. We will update if any more details surface.

Thomas Pieters cruised to a 3-under-par 34-35=69 in round two of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth, moving a shot clear of Maximilian Kieffer and setting the new 36-hole clubhouse lead of 7-under 137.

The Belgian, whose last 72-hole strokeplay start was T4 at the Masters, picked off four birdies against a single birdie today. Stats are still unavailable on the European Tour website (we've asked them several times) but Pieters said later he hit a lot more fairways and greens in round two and, having had to work really hard for his opening 68, today's 69 was less stressful. It was a fairly simple formula for the big hitter as he two-putted for par most of the way and then scribbled birdies on three of the West Course's par fives (4, 12 and 17). The only other deviations from par were an early bogey at No. 3 and a birdie-3 at 9. Everything looks smooth so far for Pieters although he did say "my back hurts a bit" when discussing his round with host broadcaster Sky Sports.

Dallas resident Kelly Kraft cruised to a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round one of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, staking out an early claim of the clubhouse lead, sharing that title with Derek Fathauer and J.T. Poston.

Playing in a home game this week, Kraft kicked off the week with a 5-birdie effort, highlighted by a hot putter. Throughout the day he sank three putts from outside 15 feet, including a 39'11" birdie bomb at the par-3 16th. Kraft would walk off the course gaining 2.79 strokes putting over the field. All of those chances were setup by steady striking, giving himself 10 birdie looks from inside 20 feet today. That kept the round relatively stress-free, despite the blustery conditions he had to play through. Kraft is making his 51st start on the PGA TOUR and this will go in the books as his first lead/co-lead after ANY round.

J.T. Poston breezed through Colonial Country Club in round one of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, recording a 5-under-par 32-33=65 to grab a share of the clubhouse lead alongside Derek Fathauer and Kelly Kraft.

Poston had a rough time at last week's AT&T Byron Nelson, posting rounds of 78-72=150 (+10) to easily miss the cut after earning a paycheck in nine straight starts before that. He didn't let that result keep him down for long, and hit the reset button to clear that from his mind. Today's bounce back involved some stellar ball-striking to smother 15 greens in regulation, gaining 4.515 strokes approach-the-green. Highlights on the green included a pair of splashes from 11-to-14 feet but most of his damage was done from short range, thanks to that strong iron and wedge play. Playing his 19th career event, this will be his first lead/co-lead after ANY round.

Grame McDowell coasted to a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 during the opening round of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, staking out a spot one stroke off the early lead on Thursday with play still in progress.

The Northern Irishman steadied 10 (of 14) fairways en route to 11 greens in regulation. Three of his four birdies came from long distance, two on converted putts from the 17-to-21 foot range with the other coming on a hole out from 36'3" at the par-3 fourth hole. It wasn't all smooth sailing for the Ulsterman, though, as he needed to save par twice from outside nine feet to maintain the momentum. Opting to make his tournament debut here instead of traveling to take on a renovated Wentworth, McDowell looks to have made the right decision early on the in the week.
May 25 - 1:36 PM

Derek Fathauer breezed through Colonial Country Club on day one of the DEAN & DELUCA Invitational, styling a 5-under-par 31-34=65 to claim the early title of clubhouse leader.

Fathauer led off his day with a birdie bomb from 31'5" to really set the tone. He slowed his pace from there, but would still go on to knock in five more birdie putts ranging from 6'6" to 12'8" before his round was over. Driving accuracy wasn't on the menu today as he split just five (of 14) fairways but recovered nicely to land 15 greens, allowing his best weapon (putter) to go to work. Fathauer would walk off the course gaining 2.901 strokes putting. Slow starts have been an issue for Fathauer recently, as he's positioned himself outside the top 55 after R1 in each of his last nine starts. If he can maintain this lead by day's end it will be his fourth lead/co-lead on the PGA TOUR with two of them resulting in top-5 finishes by week's end (2017 CIMB Classic, 2016 OHL Classic).

Johan Carlsson carved a superb 6-under-par 30-36=66 to take the clubhouse lead midway through Thursday afternoon at the BMW PGA Championship over the West Course at Wentworth.

The big Swede is making his fourth appearance at the European Tour's headquarters without once suggesting that he had this round in him. He's finished T71-MC-T33 and never before broken 71. To better that by a full five strokes he started by obliterating the front nine, ticking three straight at 3, 4 and 5 before adding circles at 7 and 9. A bogey followed at the 10th but he atoned in style with back-to-back birdies at 11 and 12. There was a final par breaker at the 15th before he dropped a shot at the last, leaving him with a one shot advantage over a group of three at 5-under, Francesco Molinari, Scott Jamieson and Kiradech Aphibarnrat. "I putted really well," he said afterwards. "And on top of that you've got to hit a few good shots out there on this golf course, as well."

The changes to Wentworth made little difference to Francesco Molinari as the course horse tied the first-round clubhouse lead at the BMW PGA Championship in England with a 5-under-par 34-33=67.

Molinari joined early pacesetters Scott Jamieson and Kiradech Aphibarnrat thanks to a pair of closing birdies at the revamped West Course, making the surprise of an opening bogey a distant memory. The Italian recovered from that dropped shot at No. 1 with a circle at 4 and added another birdie at 8 to turn in 1-under. After a pair of pars to start the back nine, he accelerated with red numbers at 12 and 13 and made it a three-way tie at the top with a 4-4 finale on the par 5s at 17 and 18. Molinari was a hugely popular pick with gamers this week due to some eye-catching converging trends. He was T6 in the PLAYERS Championship on his last start and has made the top 10 in four of his last five visits to Wentworth.

Kiradech Aphibarnrat cruised Wentworth's West Course in 5-under-par 31-36=67 to take a piece of the clubhouse lead alongside Scott Jamieson on day one of the BMW PGA Championship at Wentworth.

The Thai was quick out of the blocks today, scribbling circles at four of his opening seven holes. Those birdies came at 2, 5, 6 and 7. After turning in just 31, he picked up further shots at 12 and 13 to go clear of the field on 6-under but made his only bogey of the round at the par-3 14th. With the two closing par 5s to come, Aphibarnrat would have hoped to splash further red but he needed five swings at 17 and, at the last, left his putt for birdie and the outright lead in the jaws. Still, that's a fine morning's work and, having shot an opening 68 but only finished T60 last year, he'll hope to make a better job of the remaining 54 holes this time.

Scott Jamieson took advantage of benign conditions on the first morning of the BMW PGA Championship in England and posted the clubhouse lead with a bogey-free 5-under-par 33-34=67.

Right now, that's one clear of Italian Nino Bertasio. The Scot has only broken 70 three times in 20 laps at Wentworth but beat his previous best 18 by a shot today after keeping bogey off his card. Jamieson made his first move at No. 4 with a birdie at the West Course's opening par 5 and followed it with another circle at the par-3 5th. He made his second '2' of the round with birdie at 10 and added red numbers at 13 and 16 before settling for a pair of closing par 5s. Jamieson has a habit of starting fast and, before this week, he'd finished round one in the top 10 in seven of his last 19 tournaments. He's been in decent form with three top 25s in his last five events, highlighted by a third place in March's Indian Open.
