Tiger Woods has his irons locked in ahead of the 118th running of the U.S. Open Championship, taking place this week at Shinnecock Hills Golf Club.

Still playing as an amateur, Woods made his Shinnecock Hills debut in 1995 when he posted a 4-over 74 in round one and then withdrew during round two with a wrist injury. He returned in 2004 and a sour start (2-over 72) put him in T40 after R1. He beat the field average by 7.268 strokes over the final three days but all that was good for was a T17. This time around he enters off a career-worst putting performance at the Memorial but it was also a dominant ball-striking week where he gained 11.2 strokes approaching-the-greens. If his irons and wedges stay dialed in while his putting goes back to normal then Woods could be right there in contention come Sunday afternoon. Using a veteran move, Woods has docked his yacht about 30 minutes away this week, allowing him to avoid traffic on his way to the course.

World No. 356 Michael Thompson painted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-30=63 on Moving Day at the Wyndham Championship to reach 11-under 199, up 38 places to T3 and good for the low round in the clubhouse.

The leaders are just getting underway but at the moment, a six-way T3 would bump Thompson 26 spots (from 158) to 132nd in the FedExCup standings. He'll need another low one in R4 if he wants to qualify for the Playoffs for the first time since 2014. After opening with 66-70, the 33-year-old began T41, one inside the cut line and four shy of the overnight top 10. He striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit all 18 greens in regulation, gaining 3.304 strokes tee-to-green. The Alabama alum carded five birdies and a hole-out eagle-3 at 15 from a greenside bunker, posting 1.698 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. His 63 is a season low (in 57 rounds), previously 64 at the Fort Worth Invitational, also in R3.

World No. 461 Thomas Aiken looked to be spoiling a great day's work at Hills GC when racking up a trio of late bogeys on day three of the Nordea Masters in Sweden but a birdie at the final hole completed a 3-under-par 32-35=67 and gave him a share of the 54-hole lead with Paul Waring on 12-under 198.

The duo are three clear of pre-tournament betting favorite Thorbjorn Olesen and Scotland's Marc Warren while it's a further stroke back to Germany's Maximilian Kieffer. Aiken started Moving Day two shots back but cruised into the lead with four birdies to the turn, holing from 15ft at No. 2 and 12ft at No. 8. Another gain at 12 put him at 14-under but the wheels threatened to fall off completely late as he swallowed bogeys at 15, 16 and 17. But a birdie at 18 for the third day running combined with a Waring square at the same hole left the South African tied for the lead and in position to win his fourth European Tour title and first since 2014. He converted 54-hole leads (two shots and three shots respectively) to win the first two of those trophies.

Paul Waring looked set to lead the Nordea Masters on his own going into Sunday's final round but swallowed a walk-off bogey-6 at 18, that disappointing finish completing a 1-under-par 35-34=69 on day three and putting him level with Thomas Aiken on 12-under 198.

The good news is that the duo are three clear of the field although Waring will inevitably be aggravated at taking six swishes on the par-5 closer which he'd birdied on Thursday and Friday. Starting the day tied for the lead with Scott Jamieson (75), Waring could never find the touch that had brought him 14 birdies in the first 36 holes at Hills GC. But for the first 11 holes he was solid, racking up nine pars and nailing birdie-2s at 5 and 10. The Englishman wiped out a bogey at 12 with birdie-3 at 17 but Aiken's birdie to Waring's bogey at 18 ensured a two-shot swing and a tie at the top. It makes life that much harder as he attempts to secure a first European Tour win tomorrow from this his 200th start.

World No. 81 Shane Lowry sleepwalked to a 1-under-par 35-34=69 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship and at 2-under 69-69=138, missed the cut by one shot.

A total of 72 players from a field of 156 made the cut of 3-under 137, 21 (T52) on the number. Lowry, a pre-tourney 22/1 outright, was highest-up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the road. For the short week, he conjured one eagle and three birdies versus three bogeys and while 2nd in SG: Off-the-Tee (3.378), was 104th in SG: Approach (-0.908) and 133rd in SG: Putting (-2.869). The 31-year-old's three-year exemption from his lone TOUR win at the 2015 WGC-Bridgestone has expired and his TOUR season is over at a projected 141st in the FedExCup standings. Other notable early exits include: 138- Russell Henley .. 139- Steve Stricker; 3-time champ Davis Love III .. 140- Brendan Steele .. 141- Daniel Berger; Peter Uihlein .. 146- Satoshi Kodaira .. 149- 2016 champ Si Woo Kim.

Past champ and World No. 25 Sergio Garcia carded a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship for a 36-hole total of 9-under 131, up 16 spots on the live leaderboard to T4, five adrift of leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 2012 winner hit eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.875 strokes approaching and 3.237 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 10 (missed par-saver from 4'6"), outpaced by four birdies, two in the 11-to-12 foot range, adding eagle-3 at 15 from 13'7". The Spaniard recorded 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.471 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. He's currently projected at 118th in the FedExCup standings (up 13 places) as he attempts to qualify for the FedExCup Playoffs for a 12th straight time. Garcia opened with a five-birdie, one-bogey 66.

Overnight leader and World No. 88 Brandt Snedeker navigated a 3-under-par 36-31=67 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship for a 36-hole tally of 14-under 126, currently good for a two-shot lead over D.A. Points.

Play is still in progress but nobody is going to catch Snedeker after posting the low 36-hole aggregate score of the season, previously 127 by Michael Kim (John Deere). He landed eight (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing strokes off-the-tee and around-the-green but gaining 0.659 on approach. The 2007 winner (Forest Oaks) went out in 1-over, outbalancing two birdies at holes 3 and 5 with three bogey-5s at 2, 4 and 9, but came home in blemish-free 4-under, adding circles at 11 and 16 and eagle-3 at 15 from 30'9". His birdie split included two from between 12 and 34 feet, posting 1.692 putts per GIR and 2.280 SG: Putting with 30 total putts. This is Snedeker's 10th 36-hole lead/co-lead in 306 events, previously 2-for-9 converting.

World No. 539 D.A. Points fired a bogey-free, 6-under-par 30-34=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 12-under 128, up two places on the live leaderboard to solo 2nd, two shy of 36-hole leader Brandt Snedeker.

The 41-year-old is making a late push to qualify for the Playoffs and has opened with a pair of season-tying-low 64s. It looks like he'll have to win this week to make the postseason, but if not, he's fully exempt thru 2018-19 from his third TOUR title at the 2017 Puerto Rico Open. The Illinois alum owns two career runners-up in 324 events, including a P2 at the 2012 Wells Fargo in Charlotte, so there's some good vibes in North Carolina. On eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, he carded four birdies and a hole-out eagle-3 at five from a greenside bunker. The Florida resident's birdie split included four conversions from between 10 and 16 feet, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.512 SG: Putting with 28 total putts. He also gained 2.543 strokes around-the-green and 4.269 tee-to-green.

With his wife on the bag, World No. 194 C.T. Pan twirled a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 11-under 129, up 10 spots on the day to the top of the leaderboard and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Pan is solo 3rd, three short of leader Brandt Snedeker.

This is the 26-year-old's 61st career event and if the lead holds up, would be his first lead/co-lead after any round. His 64 is a season low and ties his career best in 186 rounds, shot three times, most recently in R3 of the 2017 Travelers (finished T8). The University of Washington alum hit six (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 4.483 strokes approaching and 5.099 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 14, smothered by seven birdies at 1, 2, 7, 8, 15, 17 and 18, six from inside of nine feet with a long of 20'9" at the par-4 17th. Pan, whose career-best finish is T2 at the 2017 Farmers, registered 1.571 putts per GIR and 1.110 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. He kicked off with a six-birdie, one-bogey 65.

David Hearn's putter went cold in round two of the Wyndham Championship but he still salvaged a 3-under-par 32-35=67 to reach 9-under at the midpoint, good for a spot on the podium on the live leaderboard.

The Canadian started his round on the 10th tee and set up six scoring chances from inside 15 feet before making the turn. Unfortunately, he only converted on one of them (6'3" birdie at the 12th). His striking remained solid as he gave himself five more birdie looks from inside 15 feet on his homeward nine, this time ticking off three more birdies. Hearn walked off the course gaining 2.838 strokes on approach but losing 0.566 strokes putting. Entering the week at 156th in the FedExCup standings, Hearn currently projects at 125th with his live positioning of T3. He'll need to warm up the putter over the weekend if he wants to earn back his full playing privileges after playing the 2017-18 season on conditional status.

Brian Gay kicked it into high gear after a poor opening round at the Wyndham Championship, cruising to a 7-under-par 31-32=63 on Friday, vaulting more than 80 spots on the live leaderboard into a share of seventh place on 7-under 133.

Gay was outside the top 90 after an opening 70 where he split just seven (of 14) fairways. Typically a steady striker, that returned to normal with 12 fairways hit today and converted those into 14 greens. He sank a lot of mid-range putts but knocked in just one putt from outside 10 feet (17'5" birdie at the 13th). Gay also missed putts from 5'2" and 3'5" on his way into the clubhouse. The 46-year-old is the only golfer to post a score better than 64 this morning (C.T. Pan the only to post a 64). This will fall on shy of his personal best on the PGA TOUR (2018 Byron Nelson & 2008 OHL Classic) but it does beat his previous best at Sedgefield Country Club by two strokes. Despite his style of play seemingly matching up with the course, Gay has never finished better than T48 here in five tries.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 143 Keith Mitchell tacked on a 4-under-par 31-35=66 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 9-under 131, up eight places on the day to T3 and good for a share of the early 36-hole clubhouse lead with David Hearn and Peter Malnati. UPDATE: With R2 completed, Mitchell is T4, five back of leader Brandt Snedeker.

The Georgia alum landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, losing 1.024 strokes around-the-green but gaining 1.890 off-the-tee and 1.375 on approach. He squared three bogeys at holes 8 (3-putt from 7'7"), 13 and 16, outflanked by seven circles, including five straight at 1-5. The 26-year-old's split included two conversions from between 12 and 17 feet, posting 1.667 putts per GIR and 1.442 SG: Putting with 30 total putts. He entered the week 66th in the FedExCup standings and opened with a six-birdie, one-bogey 65.
