Ryan Armour put on a ball-striking clinic en route to a bogey-free, 9-under-par 31-30=61, signing for a career-low score en route to the clubhouse co-lead alongside Webb Simpson with a two-day tally of 13-under 127.

The 41-year-old Web.com Tour grad entered the week ranked 187th in the FedExCup race. He's in need of a monster finish to crack the Playoffs and ensure he retains his TOUR card. So far, so good, as he's circled 14 birdies over two rounds while swallowing just one bogey. It was all about the ball-striking today as he gained 4.491 strokes approaching-the-green, landing 15 of his approach shots inside 25 feet, with the longest landing just 32'9" from the pin. Playing in his 103rd career PGA TOUR event, Armour is still searching for his first win. Armour is also searching for his first top 25 of the season. His previous low round on TOUR was a 7-under 63 in R2 of the 2008 Greater Milwaukee Open.

Shane Lowry launched up the leaderboard with a 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, reaching 9-under 131 after two days at Sedgefield Country Club.

The Irishman peppered 16 greens in regulation today, and received up-and-down putting with the flat stick. On the positive side, he sank four putts from outside nine feet, including a 34'11" birdie bomb at the par-4 11th. On the down side, he missed four putts in the 6-to-11 foot range, perhaps leaving a few more strokes out on the course. After 36 holes, Lowry has just two bogeys on his card to record the lowest 36-hole score of his PGA TOUR career, previously 11-under 133 at the 2016 PLAYERS. Lowry entered the week ranked 145th in the FedExCup race. While he already has his card locked up for another season (WGC-Bridgestone win), Lowry would love to crack the top 125 and earn a debut spot in the Playoffs.

Derek Fathauer has withdrawn from the Wyndham Championship. He was 3-over thru 32 holes at the time of WD, and did not cite an injury.

Fathauer started his week with a 2-over 72 on Thursday. He returned to Sedgefield Country Club in need of a 5-under 65 to have a chance at playing the weekend. Three bogeys in the opening eight holes didn't help his case. His last measured strokes came at the par-5 15th where he found himself 11'3" after his third shot, but missed the next two putts before calling it quits. That included a miss from 3'10", his second missed putt from inside four feet on the day. Entering the week at 110th in the FedExCup standings, Fathauer is safely going to retain his TOUR card, and will have a spot reserved in next week's NORTHERN TRUST, if he's up to the task.

Prior to his round two tee time, Bryce Molder withdrew from the Wyndham Championship, putting an end to his 2016-17 PGA TOUR season. There was no injury cited at the time of WD.

Molder traded three birdies with a five pack of bogeys on day one. He lost 4.135 strokes off-the-tee as he split just five (of 14) fairways while hitting nine of his drives inside the 270-yard mark. The Georgia Tech product would have needed at least a 5-under 65 to have a chance to play the weekend. He would have needed a magical three rounds to vault up to a notable FedExCup number, as he entered the week 186th in the FEC race. Even with a WD, he is projected inside the top 200, which will give him a crack at the Web.com Tour Finals, if this WD wasn't due to a serious injury.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 291 Sam Saunders navigated a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship for a 36-hole total of 9-under 131, down one place to T4, three shy of clubhouse leader Henrik Stenson.

The 30-year-old, in the field off his top 10 at the Barracuda (solo 8th), striped 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, posting 0.924 SG: Off-the-Tee and 1.548 SG: Approach-the-Green. He squared bogey-5s at 10 (3-putt from 30'9") and 6, offset by four birdies at 15, 17, 2 and 5, two of those 2-putt varieties and a long of 30'4" at the par-4 second. The Clemson product lost 0.227 strokes around-the-green and 0.808 on-the-green, posting a pedestrian 1.938 putts per GIR.

Søren Kjeldsen mastered Sedgefield Country Club in round two of the Wyndham Championship, penciling a bogey-free, 7-under-par 31-32=63, catapulting 78 spots up the live leaderboard to sit in a share of eighth place as the afternoon wave takes the course.

Making his tournament debut, it was a ho-hum, 1-under 69 in his opening lap. He appears to have the green surfaces figured out now, splashing home four putts from outside 11 feet today. That was good for +4.125 strokes gained putting on the round. Playing his first season as a PGA TOUR card carrier, the 42-old entered the week 154th in the FedExCup standings, and is projected at 142nd on the live FEC leaderboard. That will give him conditional status and a crack at the Web.com Tour Finals, if he decides to wants keep his talents in the United States for another year. Making his 56th career PGA TOUR start, this goes in the books as a new personal best for Kjeldsen, while also matching Kevin Na for the low round of the day, so far.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, top-ranked and World No. 9 Henrik Stenson tacked on a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to post 12-under 128, up one spot to the top of the leaderboard and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

If the lead holds, it'll be his fifth 36-hole lead/co-lead in his 170th career start, first since the 2015 TOUR Championship where he finished T2 (63-68-72-72). He's 1-for-4 converting, winning the 2013 TOUR Championship wire-to-wire. The 41-year-old hit 11 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, posting 2.510 SG: Approach-the-Green though -0.441 SG: Around-the-Green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 18 (failed scramble), outpaced by five circles at Nos. 13, 15, 4, 5 and 7, all from inside of 13 feet. The Swede recorded 1.750 putts per GIR and 0.669 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts.

Kevin Na rocketed up the leaderboard in round two of the Wyndham Championship, piecing together a 7-under-par 30-33=63 to reach 10-under 130 after 36 holes, two off the early pace set by Henrik Stenson.

Na leaned heavily on the flat stick in his opening-round 67, but today he dialed in his irons and wedges. Before the day was done, he setup eight scoring chances from inside 10 feet, five of those from inside 5 feet. That was good for +4.349 strokes gained approaching-the-green, at the time he signed his card. Making his fourth appearance at Sedgefield Country Club, this is already his third time posting a round of 63 or better at the Donald Ross design (9-under 61 in R3 of 2010 being the best). This doesn't quite match Matt Every's 61 from Thursday, but Na's 63 does go in the books as the co-low round of the Friday morning wave (Soren Kjeldsen).
