Ben Martin was set to miss the cut at the Wyndham Championship, but instead suffered a disqualification, with no word on what caused the DQ.

Martin opened with a 3-under 67 and just needed an even-par 70 or better today. Instead, he four bogeys and a double with just two birdies to post a 4-over 74. Martin was four outside the cut line, so gamers should just treat this as a normal missed cut. The likely suspects for a DQ would be signing for an incorrect scorecard or using a non-conforming club. We will update if any news gets passed along on that front. In the meantime, Martin has dropped six spots on the projected FedExCup standings to 122nd but is still inside the top 125, which means his TOUR status is safe and he'll earn a spot into next week's NORTHERN TRUST in New York.

World No. 65 Byeong Hun An labored to a 3-over-par 34-39=73 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship and at 4-over 71-73=144, missed the cut by seven shots.

A total of 85 pros from a field of 156 pros made the cut of 3-under 137 so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. An, a pre-tourney 33/1 outright, was the highest up the bookmaker's food chain to depart early. He opened with a three-birdie four-bogey 71 and got worse on Day 2, outbalancing one eagle-3 and two birdies, with three bogeys and back-to-back double bogey-6s at 13 and 14. The first-time member though not a rookie will qualify for his first FedExCup Playoffs however, entering the week 96th in the FEC standings and projected at 94th. Other notable early exits include: 138- Scott Brown; Grayson Murray; Kevin Tway; Kyle Stanley .. 139- Chris Stroud; Luke Donald; Graeme McDowell .. 140- Nick Watney, Daniel Summerhays; Hao Tong Li; Brandon Hagy .. 141- Emiliano Grillo; Danny Lee .. 143- Ryan Palmer; James Hahn.

Ollie Schniederjans styled a 7-under-par 30-33=63 during the second round of the Wyndham Championship, rising 14 spots on the live leaderboard to enter the weekend in a share of fourth place on 11-under 129.

The Georgia Tech product started on the back nine and swallowed a three-putt bogey at the 12th to start the day on a sour note. It was all uphill from there, as he circled six birdies and an eagle on the final 15 holes. The putter was solid after the three-jack (+2.121 strokes gained putting by round's end) but it was solid striking that set things up, as his longest converted putt came from 11'7 for eagle at the par-5 15th. Today's lap matches his low round on the PGA TOUR (R1, 2017 John Deere Classic). This is also the lowest score thru 36 holes for Schniederjans, previously 7-under 133 at this year's Sony Open in Hawaii. Lastly, this matches his low position thru R2, tied for fourth at this year's Farmers Insurance Open, he'd go on to finish T9 that week. The youngster is only playing his 39th TOUR event and still searching for his first win.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, overnight leader and World No. 751 Matt Every backed up with a 2-over-par 34-38=72 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship, falling 18 places on the live leaderboard to T19 on 7-under 133, six adrift of 36-hole co-leaders Ryan Armour and Webb Simpson.

After a career-low 61, the 33-year-old led by one. He kicked off Day 2 with a bogey, double bogey-6 start, and never fully recovered, squashing four birdies with another bogey-5 and another double bogey-6. The Florida alum conjured seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 1.036 strokes approaching-the-green and posting a -3.102 SG: Total at the time he signed his card. He registered 1.692 putts per GIR and -1.575 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Anirban Lahiri tossed together a 4-under-par 32-34=66 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, heading into the weekend just four off the co-leaders at 9-under 131.

Lahiri opened the week with a 5-under 65 to sit just outside the top 10 after round one. He maintained his steady ball-striking on Friday, but couldn't keep up on the greens. After gaining 1.284 strokes putting in R1, he lost 0.209 today. At the midpoint, Lahiri ranks 3rd in strokes gained off-the-tee and 23rd in strokes gained approaching-the-green. Playing in his 56th career PGA TOUR start, the man out of Indian is still searching for his first victory. He'll need his putter to warm up this weekend if he wants to hoist the hardware this week.

Three-time champ and World No. 849 Davis Love III carded a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach halftime on 10-under 130, up five places on the live leaderboard to T5, three shy of 36-hole co-leaders Ryan Armour and Webb Simpson.

The 53-year-old, winner in '92, '06 and '15, found 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, gaining 1.599 strokes approaching-the-green though -0.252 around-the-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 14, his only blemish thru 36 holes, offset by five birdies at holes 1, 2, 5, 12 and 18, all from 13 feet and in. The University of North Carolina product posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.244 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts.

Vaughn Taylor tamed Sedgefield Country Club for a second straight day, recording a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to arrive at the midpoint of the Wyndham Championship on 11-under 129, two off the pacesetters at the top.

Taylor started his day on the back nine and came out firing with the flat stick. He knocked in a 21'5" putt to save par at the 10th, drained a 37-footer at the 11th, and then bombed in a 69'10" eagle putt at the par-5 15th. Remarkably, he gained just 0.903 strokes putting by day's end, which says alot about his putting work on the other 15 holes. A steady aerial attack has been the recipe for success this week, pelting 33 (of 36) greens in regulation, currently T2 in the field in that regard. Entering the week 119th in the FedExCup race, Taylor was not in any real danger of losing his spot in the Playoffs, but a big finish this week would go along way toward helping him make a deeper run toward East Lake.

Past champ and World No. 59 Webb Simpson twirled a 6-under-par 33-31=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 13-under 127, up two spots to T1, matching the 36-hole lead of Ryan Armour.

Play is still in progress but no one is going to catch the leaders. This will be Simpson's second 36-hole lead/co-lead of the season in 24 starts. He was a 36-hole co-leader seven starts ago at the DEAN & DELUCA (68-66), eventually finishing solo 5th with 67-71. The 32-year-old hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, posting 1.397 SG: Off-the-Tee though -0.431 around-the-green. He squared back-to-back bogey-5s at Nos. 8 and 9 (failed scrambles), camouflaged by eight circles at 1, 2, 5, 6, 10, 12, 14 and 15. The North Carolinian's split featured three from between 12 and 20 feet, recording 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.925 SG: Putting. Overall, this is his eighth 36-hole lead/co-lead in 232 career starts, previously 2-for-7 converting.
