A late eagle helped Adrien Saddier catch Chris Paisley at the top of the BMW South African Open leaderboard; his superb second round course record 9-under-par 32-31=63 contributing to a 36-hole total of 13-under 131 at Glendower Golf Club.

The Frenchman has reached the weekend without once dropping a shot and after a smart Thursday he was nothing less than scintillating on his second circuit. He began his lap on the back nine and for a second successive day made par at 10, 11 and 12. He then burst towards the top echelons of scoring with four red numbers in five holes at 13, 15, 16 and 17. He began the front nine with one more (at 2) which edged him to the head of the peloton, but left him four back of the leader with three to play. However an eagle-3 at the 522-yard par-5 eighth, sandwiched by birdie-3s at 7 and 9 drew him into a Saturday duel at the top. He is treading utterly new territory when preparing to sleep Friday night having never in his career been higher than T8 at the halfway point of a European Tour event. He and Paisley are four swings ahead of third placed Jacques Krujswijk with only the very late starters having a hope of altering that.

Grayson Murray remains sidelined with a shoulder injury, forcing him to miss out on the opportunity to defend his title at this week's Barbasol Championship.

We knew Murray was out of action due to injury but we weren't sure what the injury was until now. He clarified what's ailing him via social media, "Disappointed I won't have the chance to defend my title this week at the. @barbosalchampionship. Good luck to everyone in this years field! My shoulder is getting better every day so hope to be back on Tour in a couple of weeks." Murray is 100th in the FedExCup race so he could still return and attempt to go deep into the Playoffs. A more realistic scenario is that we only see Murray 1-to-3 more times before next fall. A setback is also possible meaning we wouldn't see him until next fall. Season-long gamers can cut bait unless they are in a league with extremely deep rosters.

Jhonattan Vegas is dealing with passport and travel issues ahead of this week's Open Championship, putting him in doubt for even teeing it up at Carnoustie Golf Links.

Vegas provided an update via social media, "Everything seems to be against me to get my visa and make @TheOpen. First, @UPS mechanical problem and passport is running late and second, weather thru NYC and flight is delay. Probably need to find another flight." Gamers should keep a close eye on this situation and be ready to swap him out on weekly lineups. He missed the cut last year in his Open Championship debut.

2016 Champion Golfer of the Year Henrik Stenson pulled out of the Scottish Open with injury but is planning to tee it up this week in the 147th Open at Carnoustie.

The 42-year-old has been the subject of speculation regarding his ability to play this week, one of his favorite tests of the year. The elbow problem stopped him having the pre-Open links test he prefers, but he was on the range Tuesday hitting balls alongside his coach Pete Cowan. The work they were doing was technically-based suggesting he is not favoring the arm and there were no outward signs of pain. Stenson did not talk after his session, but the Swedish press report that he has every intention of hitting the first tee on Thursday.

Recently retired John Peterson is already back in action as he earned a seat into the Barbasol Championship following a pre-tournament withdraw from Jim Carter.

Peterson was playing on a medical extension that ended at The Greenbrier in his latest start. He fell just 0.585 FedExCup Points shy of securing conditional status. He was on the record that if he missed retaining his card then he would head back to Texas and go on with a career in real estate. However, this week's field went deep down the priority rankings after some pre-tournament WDs, Peterson got the nod and has a chance to pick up some Non-member FEC Points. With his medical extension expired, he is no longer just 0.585 FEC Points away from securing conditional status. Peterson could pick up another start with a top-10 finish this week, giving him a nice goal to shoot for. He could shoot for the Web.com Tour Finals if he does want to give his golf thing another shot.

Jordan Spieth is not playing up to his usual standards as he preps for Carnoustie Golf Links at this week's Open Championship.

The Texas Longhorn has gone six straight starts without a top 20 now. He's actually gained strokes over the field in five of those starts so he hasn't been a complete trainwreck but the Spieth we are used to doesn't go long without cracking a podium finish, let alone go six starts without a top 20. First, it was the putter that ailed him but he's gained strokes putting in each of the last three starts. However, his ball-striking happened to disappear at that same time. In Spieth's short career he typically rounds into form before hoisting the hardware. It's not out of the question for him to repeat this week but it would go against the trends he's established before winning his 11 other PGA TOUR events.
