Reigning Masters champ and World No. 5 Sergio Garcia labored to a 4-over-par 38-37=75 in the weather-delayed second round of the 99th PGA Championship and at 8-over 75-75=150, missed the cut by three shots.

A total of 75 players from a field of 156 made the cut of 5-over 147. Since winning the green jacket in April, his first major title in his 74th major appearance, Garcia has gotten progressively worse, posting T21 (U.S. Open), T37 (The Open), and now the MC. It's his second straight MC at the PGA and just his second in his last 15 majors. After opening with a 75 (three birdies, three bogeys, two double bogey-6s), the 37-year-old didn't fare any better in R2, outbalancing two birdie-4s with six bogey-5s on nine (of 14) fairways and eight greens in regulation. Other notable early exits include: 148- Justin Rose; Ross Fisher .. 149- Daniel Berger; Rafa Cabrera Bello; Bubba Watson .. 150- Jimmy Walker; Ernie Els; Brendan Steele .. 151- Branden Grace .. 153- Phil Mickelson .. 154- Danny Lee .. 155- Xander Schauffele .. 156- Thomas Pieters.

Jordan Spieth styled a 4-under-par 34-33=67 during the second round of The 147th Open, climbing 39 spots on the leaderboard to sit in a share of 11th place (3-under 139) at halftime.

Spieth circled birdies at 3, 5, 10, 11, and to climb inside the top 10. He dropped a shot on the difficult closing stretch but it was a three-shot improvement on the final stretch, compared to R1. Spieth is now 8-under par on Holes 1 thru 14 and 5-over on holes 15 thru 18. The Texan split just seven (of 15) fairways but gave himself plenty of short approaches from the fescue. "I'd certainly rather play boring golf, but missing in the right places, I kind of take pride in, okay, I miss that, but the hole opens up for me here, and it makes it not too bad." He entered without a top 20 since the Masters but he's got himself right back in the thick of things now, entering the weekend just three of the pace of co-leaders Kevin Kisner and Zach Johnson.

Due to inclement weather, the second round of the Barbasol Championship was suspended at 3:25 PM ET with players being removed from the course.

Davis Love III, 54 years young, got his lap completed before the stoppage, authoring a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-35=68 (preferred lies) to back up a five-birdie, one-bogey 68 in the opener. He reached the midpoint on 8-under 136, up 15 spots on the day to T13, seven shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Troy Merritt, who was also the first-round pacesetter. This is Love III's second Barbasol after a T67 last year at the former venue (RTJ Trail). The suspension was the first of the day, though the start of R2 was delayed by 2 hours, 30 minutes due to inclement weather. That after having moved tee times ahead by 1 hour, 20 minutes the day before.

Xander Schauffele made a big move up the leaderboard in round two of The Open Championship, tossing together a 5-under-par 35-31=66, jumping more than 25 spots on the live leaderboard into a share of third place (5-under 137), just one off the co-leaders.

It took Schauffele 10 holes to pick off his first birdie this week. Over the next 27 holes, he's circled six birdies and an eagle to offset two bogeys (three bogeys total on the week). Today it was all about driving as he used his distance but also piped 10 (of 15) fairways. From there, his putter caught fire as he needed just 24 swipes with the flat stick by day's end. The highlight of the day came at the par-5 14th where he rolled in an eagle from around 20 feet. The San Diego State product continues to be a big-game hunter. He has eight career top 10s with four of those coming at the U.S. Open (x2), the TOUR Championship, and THE PLAYERS. This won't beat Tommy Fleetwood's 65 from this morning, but this will be the second-best round of the day.

Pat Perez was blemish-free thru 17 holes before swallowing his lone bogey of the day, still managing a 3-under-par 34-34=68 to reach 5-under 137 at the midpoint of The 147th Open, currently one off the pacesetters at the top.

The ASU product split 10 (of 15) fairways and landed 12 greens in regulation. Those aren't the stats that you'd expect from a one-bogey effort. It was his short game that did most of the talking, needing just 26 swipes with the putter today. Perez has traded 8 birdies with three bogeys through 36 holes at Carnoustie Golf Links. His previous best positioning through 36 holes of an Open Championship was T20 in 2007, which happens to be when Carnoustie last hosted this event. Perez would go on to finish T20 that week which is his only top 65 at The Open in four attempts. There is clearly something about the layout that he likes since he arrived on the heels of eight straight (individual) starts without a top 35.

Overnight leader Kevin Kisner maintained his place at the front of the field after day two of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie but he's now tied for top spot with Zach Johnson on 6-under 136 following a double bogey at 18 in his 1-under-par 34-36=70.

Anyone who thought the American would just be Thursday's story looked to be badly mistaken as the World No. 33 cruised to the 18th tee with a two-shot lead after hitting 8-under. But after a loose drive, his second from rough found the Barry Burn in front of the green, forcing a double bogey-6. Prior to that sting in the tail, Kisner had outpaced bogeys at 8 and 10 with red circles at 5, 7, 9, 13 and 14. Back in August, Kisner had a piece of the lead after 18, 36 and 54 holes of the PGA Championship at Quail Hollow before slipping to T7 so it's no surprise that he did plenty of good work today. Inevitably, his putter cooled after he took just 22 swishes in round one (29 on his second lap) while he hit more fairways (9 of 15) and greens (13) today. On the live board, there are two other players at 6-under, Pat Perez after 14 and Zander Lombard after 8, so Kisner may lose his T1 position by close of play.

David Duval swallowed a 9-over-par 80 in round one of The 147th Open and then withdrew before his second-round tee time, citing an illness.

Phil Casey of the Press Association reported via social media, "Former champion David Duval withdraws from @TheOpen before second round due to illness. The 2001 winner shot 80 on Thursday." Duval has now had an early exit in each of his last 10 (individual) starts on the PGA TOUR. His last cut made came at the 2015 Open Championship (T49).

With a walk-off birdie at Carnoustie's tough 18th, Zach Johnson completed a 4-under-par 34-33=67 in round two of the 147th Open Championship in Scotland and posted the new clubhouse lead of 6-under 136.

That's one shot clear of Tommy Fleetwood and two in front of Rory McIlroy. Johnson won the Claret Jug in 2015 at St. Andrews and deserves the tag of tournament specialist having finished T14 or better in five of the last six Opens although he's never been higher than fourth at the midpoint. Johnson hit 7 (of 15) fairways, pelted 14 greens and took 28 putts for the second day running. In wet, rainy conditions on the Angus links this morning, the American swallowed a bogey at the very first hole but then didn't look back. He quickly atoned for that early dropped shot with red circles at 3, 4 and 6 to turn in 34 and picked up further shots at 14 and 18 (25 feet) to edge in front of Fleetwood.

Rory McIlroy continued his push for a second Claret Jug by authoring a 2-under-par 35-34=69 in round two of the 147th Open Championship at Carnoustie, nudging four spots up the live leaderboard to T4 on 4-under 138, just a shot behind pacesetter Tommy Fleetwood.

The 2014 champion now has a pair of 69s to start with this week although he had more control off the tee today, finding 47% of the fairways after hitting just 27% in round one. He hit one less green in regulation (13) today whilst needing 30 putts. The Northern Irishman opened with six straight pars before holing from 12 feet for a first birdie of a rainy morning on the links at 7. On his second nine, he outpaced bogeys at 12 and 15 with red circles at 10 (15ft), 13 (10ft) and 14 and also made a good par save from 15ft at 12. "A lot more irons off tees and a lot more conservative but ended up being the same score. So I'm pretty pleased with that," he said. McIlroy has made the top five in his last three Opens and yet, pre-event, there were still doubts over his ability to play this style of golf.
Jul 20 - 8:20 AM

With the low round of the week so far, a superb bogey-free 6-under-par 33-32=65, Tommy Fleetwood charged 49 spots up the board to claim the clubhouse lead of 6-under 137 after 36 holes of the 147th Open Championship.

That's currently T1 alongside Americans Zach Johnson (three to play) and first-round leader Kevin Kisner, who goes out this afternoon. With umbrellas up as rain descended on Carnoustie on Friday morning, Fleetwood made light of the poor weather, claiming six birdies and 12 pars. His first red numbers came at 4 and 5 before he added another at 9 to turn in 33. Coming home, this year's U.S. Open runner-up ticked 11 and 14 to move one back and then tied the lead by sinking a 12-foot birdie putt at 18. The Englishman hit 10 (of 15) fairways, pelted 13 greens in regulation and needed just 26 putts.
Jul 20 - 7:33 AM

Troy Merritt was locked in during round one of the Barbasol Championship, bombarding Keene Trace Golf Club with a bogey-free, 10-under-par 30-32=62 to give himself a three-shot lead with play winding down for the day.

Merritt striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 16 greens in regulation. His ball-striking was the main conduit to scoring but he also holed out from 34'3" for eagle at the par-5 sixth hole and splashed home four putts from outside nine feet. This was a very balanced attack as he walked off the course gained at least one stroke in all four sub-categories of strokes gained. Playing the first round at this week's venue, Merritt will now hold the course record here. This will be his second career first-round lead/co-lead, with his previous co-lead coming at the 2010 Sony Open (finished T20). This will also go in the books as his third-lowest round on TOUR (61, R2/2015 Heritage; 61, R3/2015 Quicken Loans National).
Jul 19 - 6:44 PM

Defending champion Jordan Spieth opened the 2018 Open Championship at Carnoustie in Angus with a 1-over-par lap of 34-38=72, good for T50.

Spieth landed only 47% of the fairways and 56% of the greens in regulation as he struggled to make headway on a mostly calm day in Scotland. True, he encountered some of the heavier breezes, but there was nothing too demanding and for a long while he seemed in control, ticking the second and fourth on the front nine, then the 11th on the back nine to make his way into the teeth of the course unharmed. Alas it all went wrong. He found the rough (twice) and sand on his way to a double bogey-6 at the 15th, slumped to bogey at 16 and added another at the final hole.
