Russell Henley was ice cold on Thursday but bounced back with a bogey-free, 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the 100th PGA Championship, climbing inside the cut line with a 36-hole tally of 1-under 139.

The Georgia Bulldog is known for his putting prowess but he lost 3.4 strokes putting in Round 1. Perhaps a bit baffled by the slower speeds at Bellerive CC, he dialed in his distance in round two as he gained 2.9 strokes putting on Friday. The highlight came at the closing, par-4 18th when he splashed home a 25'9" birdie bomb. The cut line is currently hovering between EVEN and -1 so that final birdie provides a bit of security for Henley. The 29-year-old was a popular sleeper amongst DFS gamers and he's rewarded them with a cut made and a chance to go after his first career top 10 in a major. His previous best is a T11 which came at the 2017 Masters.

Past champ and World No. 20 Webb Simpson, a pre-tourney 10/1 fave outright, readies for this 10th Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club and checks in at No. 12 in the FedExCup standings.

The Wake Forest alum locked up an automatic selection to the Ryder Cup squad with a T19 at last week's PGA. That was his third straight top-25 finish and fourth consecutive top 20 in majors. Overall, the North Carolinian is 18-for-21 on the season with 13 top 25s and six top 10s, four of those top 5s, highlighted by his win at THE PLAYERS. He slots 2nd in all-time earnings at the Wyndham and is 8-for-9 with seven top 25s and five top 10s, including a win in 2011 as the 54-hole leader. The 33-year-old's scoring average in 34 laps on the par-70 layout is 67.18 with 24 rounds in the red and nine laps of 64 or better.

Past champ and World No. 25 Sergio Garcia, a pre-tourney 25/1 outright, makes his first appearance in the Wyndham Championship since a T29 in 2013 as defending champion.

This is the 38-year-old's fifth straight week of competition but he should be well rested. He's missed three cuts, including at last week's PGA (his fifth straight MC in majors), and only played four rounds at the no-cut WGC-Bridgestone (finished T39). In total, the Spaniard has missed five of his last six cuts on TOUR and checks in at 131st in the FedExCup standings with just six made cuts versus eight MCs on the season. He's one of 13 players who have advanced to the FEC Playoffs in all 11 seasons, so perhaps a return to Sedgefield CC will be just what the doctor ordered to keep that streak alive. Garcia is 4-for-4 here with three top 25s and two top 10s, including a win in 2012, his eighth (of 10) wins on TOUR.

Rickie Fowler has announced he'll skip the first leg of the FedExCup Playoffs as he looks to rest a partially torn oblique.

Fowler shared the news via social media, "News got out last week that I was dealing with an oblique injury the past two tournaments...it was confirmed yesterday, via MRI, that I have a partial tear in my right oblique" Fowler would add that he plans to return for the rest of the Playoffs and be fully healthy ahead of the Ryder Cup. We should expect to see him in Boston in a few weeks for the Dell Technologies Championship, barring any further setback.

Defending champ Henrik Stenson is searching for his form ahead of this week's Wyndham Championship at Sedgefield Country Club.

The Swede fired out of the gate with an 8-under 62 last year and then cruised home with rounds of 66-66-64. That was good for a one-shot lead, holding off a charging Ollie Schniederjans. He arrived on the heels of five straight top 30s last year but this time around he sputters in with MC-T39-T35 over his last three starts. A big concern for gamers has been his elbow injury that forced him to withdraw from the Scottish Open. "I can practice and I can play without any problems as of now, but can't really go after it in the gym." During his recent slump he's struggled on the greens (-6.2 strokes putting at Firestone and -3.7 strokes putting at the PGA Championship). His elbow is still a small concern but gamers should otherwise consider him a top-tier option this week in all fantasy formats.

Grayson Murray will be making his return from an injury layoff as he preps for this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Raleigh resident has been sidelined with June 10th (St. Jude Classic) with a shoulder injury. He missed a chance to defend his title at the Barbasol and was a pre-tourney WD a few weeks ago at the Barracuda. Before his injury, Murray 15-for-20 with seven top 25s on his CV. That still has him positioned inside the top 125 in the FedExCup race so Murray is likely using this as a tune-up ahead of the Playoffs and it makes it easier that we're playing in his home state this week. There is no need for gamers to jump the gun this week but if he shows promise at Sedgefield, then he could be worth a look next week at THE NORTHERN TRUST.

Wake Forest product Will Zalatoris has received a sponsor's invite and looks to cash in at this week's Wyndham Championship.

Zalatoris left college a bit early in hopes of kick-starting his pro career. He's yet to convert as he's 1-for-7 on the PGA TOUR (T68 at this year's Pebble Beach Pro-Am). The problem has been his short game as he's lost strokes around-the-green AND putting in all six ShotLink starts. On the bright side, he gained 4.6 strokes on approach during his start at the Memorial Tournament so the upside is certainly there for this 21-year-old with pedigree. Zalatoris reached as high at No. 8 in the World Amateur Golf Rankings before turning pro and now he heads back to his old stomping grounds this week. With local knowledge on his side, this could be a good week to take a chance on the youngster, but only in the deepest of fantasy formats.

Thorbjorn Olesen is currently without his sticks, but he will hope to still make an impression in the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden this week.

The Dane lies sixth in the Race to Dubai and high in the Ryder Cup rankings off the back of a summer of decent results. It started with victory in the Italian Open and since then he has had an on week always followed by an off. Take a look: 1-MC-2-MC-6-12-3-56. That kind of hints at him making the top ten again this week. More realistically, his third in the WGC Bridgestone Inivitational looks good in this company and in not contending at Bellerive (but pegging two 68s) he was not emotionally exhausted. Nonetheless, he has jetlag to deal with plus the current loss of those clubs in the netherworld of airport luggage backrooms. He was a winner in Sweden on the Challenge Tour and has twice finished T4 in the event, most recently last year.

T.J. Vogel continues to be a Monday warrior, firing a 5-under-par 34-32=66 during today's open qualifier at Bermuda Run Country Club, earning a seat into the Wyndham Championship.

Vogel has now punched his Open Qualifying ticket for the eighth time this season. He is just 3-for-7 in those starts but it would be a fitting end if he finally got rewarded for his efforts during the last event of the regular season. The Florida Gator has earned 50.75 Non-Member FedExCup Points along the way. The 200th spot in the cutoff for qualifying into the Web.com Tour Finals. Rod Pampling currently holds that spot with 64.22 FEC Points. Vogel will need to pick up at least 15 points this week to have a chance but that number will also likely move by week's end. Others to punch their ticket through Monday Qualifying included Mickey DeMorat (-6), James Driscoll (-5), and Stewart Jolly (-5). NC State's Stephen Franken was the odd-man out of the 4-for-3 playoff.

Adam Scott had a change of heart on Monday morning, pulling his name from the field at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The Aussie found himself on the FedExCup bubble (119th) before last week's solo third at the PGA Championship. That result jumped him to 70th in the Race to East Lake, which gives him a bit of wiggle room and allows him to rest after a big week at Bellerive CC. Scott had also dipped to 76th in the world after the WGC-Bridgestone but is now back inside the top 50 (45th). The Aussie has four top 20s over his last eight starts, so last week's big finish was not completely out of left field.

Stewart Cink grabbed a top 5 at last week's PGA Championship and will now get a bit of rest as he withdraws his name from the field at this week's Wyndham Championship.

The big-hitting 45-year-old led the field last week in strokes gained tee-to-green. A whopping 4.9 of his 12.7 T2G strokes came via the around-the-green department. Cink calls East Lake Golf Club home so he may have benefitted from experience on zoysia turf. If he wants to play his way to East Lake this year he'll need to post a few more big finishes as he currently sits in 55th place in the FedExCup standings. While Cink may be sitting this one out, we did pick up a few notable late entries on Monday morning, Hideki Matsuyama and Ollie Schniederjans.

Playing out of the penultimate twosome, World No. 7 Jon Rahm carved out a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the final round of the 100th PGA Championship to finish up his second appearance (T58/2017) on 11-under 269, down one spot into a two-way T4, five adrift of overnight leader and champion Brooks Koepka, who shot 66.

After opening in 68-67-66, the 23-year-old began T3, three back. He found eight (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation, losing 1.034 strokes tee-to-green. The ASU alum squared two bogeys at holes 4 and 17, outpaced by four birdies at 7, 8, 16 and 18, two from between 16 and 19 feet. He registered 1.636 putts per GIR and 2.372 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. For the week, the Spaniard tallied 17 birdies versus four bogeys and one double en route to his fifth top 10 of the season in 16 starts, all five doubling as top 5s. This was his 10th major, third top 25 and second top 10, matching his best of 4th at the Masters back in April.
