Justin Rose arrived with some question marks regarding his health but put those to rest (for now) as he opened the 100th PGA Championship with a 3-under-par 33-34=67 to find himself inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard.

The 38-year-old put a scare in gamers when he withdrew from last week's WGC-Bridgestone Invitational. He cited back concerns but sounded optimistic in his pre-tournament presser this week (even though he didn't play a practice round). There was no practice needed as his short game was on full display today. He converted six putts from outside eight feet and also gained 1.4 strokes around-the-green. Rose will need to start hitting more than 10 greens in regulation if he wants to keep his name in contention but this is a good start for the Englishman. This will go in the books as his lowest opening round in a PGA Championship and the sixth time he's been inside the top 15 after day one.

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.

Paul Waring torched the Hills GC in Gothenburg with a second round 7-under-par 32-31=63 which vaulted him into a share of the 36-hole lead alongside Scott Jamieson and two clear of Thomas Aiken in the Nordea Masters.

The Englishman was a birdie machine on Friday as he continues his quest to land a top 30 finish in this tournament at the seventh time of asking. In fact, of course, he is on track to do a whole lot better than that. His front nine was apparently effortless as he ticked four birdies at the second, third, fifth and ninth. A bogey set him back on the back nine at the 11th, but he responded with par breakers at the 12th, 14th, 16th and 18th. T9 in the Trophee Hassan II and T11 in his next start at the Sicilian Open he hasn't made a top 50 since and needs it as he languishes at 147th on the Race to Dubai. This is only his second 36-hole lead of any sort in a four round tournament on the European Tour. The previous occasion was the 2013 Portugal Masters when he was T3.

Scott Jamieson caressed a wonderful 5-under-par 34-31=65 in the second round of the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden; good for a 36-hole total of 11-under 129 and a shared clubhouse lead of two shots with Paul Waring.

The World No. 191 has had a poor season since he re-located to the United States to be near his wife's family, however this week promises to completely change the tone of the campaign (he currently sits at 126th on the Race to Dubai). Both of his Friday nines featured fine scoring towards the end. He opened the front nine with four pars and a bogey at the fourth, but closed it with ticks at the sixth, seventh and ninth. An early red number at the 12th on the way home was rubbed out with blue at the 14th, but he then made birdie at 16, 17 and a tap-in effort at 18 to set the mark of 11-under which minutes later Waring equalled. He has shared three 36-hole leads in 72-hole events yet only once gone on to finish in the top ten.

Prior to his second-round tee time, Chris Stroud withdrew from the Wyndham Championship. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Stroud opened his week with a 1-over 71 to sit outside the top 110 on the leaderboard. His troubles came from tee-to-green as he lost 2.534 strokes off-the-tee and lost another 1.683 strokes on approach. Stroud was just starting to show some flashes of form recently but still entered the week ranked 149th in the FedExCup standings. Stroud was making one last push for the Playoffs but he does have his card locked up for another season, thanks to his 2017 Barracuda victory. This is his 14th career mid-tournament WD (321 starts, 4.4%).
