Ángel Cabrera withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship prior to his second round.

The Argentine was scheduled to go off the 10th tee at 3:40 p.m. CT. He opened with 4-over-par 37-37=74 with three birdies and seven bogeys. This is his seventh mid-tournament WD in 238 PGA TOUR starts; it's his second in his last four. His last occurred at THE PLAYERS due to a back injury. If an explanation is released for today's decision, we will relay it to you. Cabrera started the week slotted 152nd in the FedExCup standings, but he's fully exempt through next season.

Gary Woodland had himself a day at TPC Four Seasons, signing for a 6-under-par 31-32=63 following his second round.

Woodland needed something special today to get to the weekend. He opened with a 2-over 72 that included one bogey, one double and one triple. He found it early and often on Friday. Starting on the par-4 10th, Woodland would snipe his first of five birdies on the par-4 11th. But the highlight occurred on the modified par-3 14th where he holed out from the tee box (in the fairway) from 104 yards. It's his first ace in 463 rounds on the PGA TOUR. (You can view the shot for yourself at the link below.) He reached the midpoint in 4-under 135 and sits four swings off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 29 - 5:09 PM

Jordan Spieth twirled a 5-under-par 33-31=64 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

The hometown favorite connected for seven birdies at TPC Four Seasons today. That set included a tap-in at the modified par-3 14th hole. He also swallowed two bogey-5s, but still signed for his lowest aggregate of 18 competitive rounds at TPC Four Seasons. Prior to today, Spieth hadn't scored better than 67, so even with the adjustment to overall par today, it was his best round. At 6-under 133, the 21-year-old is just three strokes in arrears of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 29 - 5:00 PM

Nick Watney spun a bogey-free, 4-under-par 34-31=65 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

Watney birdied both par 5s at TPC Four Seasons today and added birdies at the par-4 11th and par-3 14th. He now has nine birdies against just two birdies at the break. He signed today's card at 7-under 132, just two shots off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 29 - 4:54 PM

John Senden followed his opening 67 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with another to post 5-under 134 at the halfway point.

Those not good with numbers are going to have nightmares with today's wrinkle. Senden scored 2-under today and 36-hole par at the tournament is 139 due to the shortened 14th hole, which he happened to bogey with 4 today. But he's just four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.
May 29 - 4:47 PM

Luke Guthrie is 5-under-par 69-65=134 through two rounds of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship.

He traded six birdies with two bogeys. The squares included a 4 at the 14th hole, which is normally a par 4, but is being played as a 104-yard par 3 today. Guthrie closed with birdies at 17 and 18 to climb within four swings of the 36-hole clubhouse lead. He arrived in Irving, Texas, ranked 129th in the FedExCup standings.
May 29 - 4:34 PM

Jeff Overton crafted a 4-under-par 32-33=65 in today's second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship, reaching the midpoint in 5-under 134, four strokes off the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

Overton hasn't been relevant most of the season with only one top 25, but he's 98th in the FedExCup standings. He's poised to pad his record if not finally pick off his first PGA TOUR win. This is his 257th career start. He connected for an eagle-3 and four birdies at TPC Four Seasons today. They covered bogey-5s at Nos. 15 and 18. Yes, he birdie the modified par-3 14th hole.
May 29 - 4:23 PM

Jon Curran chased his opening 67 at the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship with a 6-under-par 29-34=63 in today's second round to post 9-under 130 at the break, good for early possession of the 36-hole clubhouse lead.

No need to adjust your device as overall par today is 69. As we relayed earlier, the 14th hole is being played as a 104-yard par 3. It's a 406-yard par 4 on the scorecard but unplayable conditions in the fairway precluded its traditional setup. It's also precluded the access to data beyond scoring, such as fairways hit, greens in regulation and measurements of all shots. But we do know that Curran buried eight birdies at TPC Four Seasons today, including a 2 at No. 14. He also squared a pair of bogey-5s on his inward nine.
May 29 - 4:14 PM

Rory McIlroy followed his atrocious, opening 80 at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open with an even-par 34-37=71 in today's second round and will miss the cut.

After squaring nine bogeys on Thursday, McIlroy's only hiccup today was a double bogey-6 at the 15th hole. He had buried birdies at Nos. 7 and 12, so it merely wiped away a red number. He's in the books at 9-over 151, four shots outside the cut line. McIlroy is a first-time host of this tournament, so you can't rule out that distractions related to the learning curve of how to juggle those duties with his game impeded progress. The Irish Open concluded five consecutive weeks of competition on two continents with two victories, so he may have merely run of out gas. We'll see the world's top-ranked next in three weeks at the U.S. Open at Chambers Bay.
May 29 - 1:16 PM

Retief Goosen withdrew from the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship prior to the second round, citing a neck injury.

Goosen was slated to go off the first tee at 10:30 a.m. CT, which is three hours later than originally planned due to the overnight rain and subsequent delay due to unplayable conditions. He opened with a 7-over-par 37-40=77 during which he went 0-for-10 in scoring chances and squared seven bogeys. This is his fifth mid-tournament WD in 279 PGA TOUR starts.
May 29 - 11:28 AM

Due to unplayable conditions, the second round of the AT&T Byron Nelson Championship began at 10:00 a.m. CT.

Four-and-a-half inches of rain fell overnight, so the three threesomes went off split tees three hours later than scheduled. This includes John Rollins on No. 10. The local resident shot 7-over-par 40-37=77 in the opener. While the tournament is underway, the par-4 14th hole has been modified. On the scorecard, it's 406 yards, but an unplayable fairway has forced officials to reduce it to 104 yards. It will still be a par 4, no doubt to maintain ease in record-keeping. UPDATE: Because of the significant change, the hole will be played as a par 3 today, giving TPC Four Seasons an overall par of 69. Lift, clean and place is in effect in closely mown areas only.

Joint overnight leader Maximilian Kieffer put it in reverse on day two of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open and fell back after a 5-over-par 37-39=76.

The young German had 12 pars and two birdies on his card but his other four holes featured three double bogeys. They came at 3, 11 and 18 while he bogeyed 8 for the second day running. Despite his frustrating day on the Royal County Down links, at 1-over 143 Kieffer is only four shots off the clubhouse lead held by Bernd Wiesberger and Richie Ramsay. As it stands he sits T16 so all is not lost.
May 29 - 9:53 AM

Defending Dubai Duty Free Irish Open champion Mikko Ilonen saw his reign ended after posting a 6-over-par 36-41=77 in round two at Royal County Down on Friday.

Coupled with an opening 75, that left the Finn down at 10-over 152. It currently puts him T134 and although scoring conditions are tough he won't get into the weekend with that score. Ilonen gave himself genuine hope after wiping out bogeys at 12 and 15 with birdies at 17 and 18 to return to 4-over. But he dropped shots at 3, 4, 5 and 6 and swallowed a double bogey-5 at 7 to kill off any outside ambitions of a successful title defense. For the second day running he hit just 8 greens in regulation.
May 29 - 9:32 AM

Shane Lowry had to putt with his wedge and driver in the second round of the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open but muddled through and will survive the cut.

The 2009 winner of this event started the day at 1-over and is believed to have snapped his putter at the 12th, his third hole of the day, after taking a bogey-6. After swallowing three more bogeys in his next five holes, a weekend off looked more than likely but credit to him for digging deep, finding three birdies against two bogeys on his second nine and returning a 3-over-par 40-35=75 to post 4-over 146. As it stands, that's currently T58 but it's getting better as the afternoon goes on with the mixed weather making scoring conditions extremely tough at Royal County Down. The top 65 and ties play the final two rounds so gamers who pinned their hopes on Lowry will be okay. In fact, he's only seven off the clubhouse lead so can't be ruled out of a title bid yet, especially when he gets a proper putter back in his hands. Today he split 10 (of 14) fairways, found 11 greens in regulation, was 2-for-7 scrambling and took 32 putts.
May 29 - 9:08 AM

Richie Ramsay authored a 4-under-par 33-34=67 to assume joint ownership of the clubhouse lead at the Dubai Duty Free Irish Open.

He's tied at the top on 3-under 139 with Bernd Wiesberger after equalling the Austrian's low 18 of the week. Ramsay had the chance to take the lead on his own but bogeyed his final hole of the day, the 9th, after failing to get up and down from a greenside bunker. Before that, the Scot had won his battle with Royal County Down and the changeable Irish weather by circling birdies at 12, 13, 16, 1 and 4. So far, he's 11-for-15 in scrambling over the first 36 holes so a hot short game is serving him well. Having grown up playing links golf in Aberdeen, Ramsay's strong showing so far should come as no surprise.
