PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 445 Denny McCarthy enjoyed a 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open for a 36-hole total of 5-under 139, up 29 spots on the live leaderboard to T6, four back of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Ryan Moore.

The 25-year-old is making his tourney debut and checked in 160th in the FedExCup standings. He's just 4-for-11 on the season but has found some form of late, posting a career-best solo 4th at the opposite-field Corales and a T43 at the Houston Open on a top-10 exemption. The Virginia alum kicked off with a five-birdie, five-bogey 72 and circled four birdies on Day 2 along with an eagle-2 from 5'9" at the par-4 fifth after driving the green. On seven (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, he gained 1.640 strokes around-the-green and 2.429 on-the-green with 26 total putts. The Jupiter, Florida, resident's split included two conversions from between 14 and 18 feet and is currently 2nd in SG: Putting thru 36 holes (4.109).

World No. 395 David Hearn navigated a 4-under-par 35-33=68 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open to post 6-under 138, up nine places on the live leaderboard to T3, three in arrears of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Ryan Moore.

Playing this season in conditional status, the 38-year-old got in this week as an alternate. It's his seventh VTO, sixth at TPC San Antonio. Hearn's results in the Texas Hill Country are mixed (and alternating), missing cuts in 2011, 2013 and 2017, and finishing T11 in 2012 and T13 in 2016. The Wyoming alum checked in at 178th in the FedExCup standings with four made cuts on the season and one top 25 (T17, RSM). He's missed five cuts, including by 10 at last week's Heritage (81-71). The Canadian opened with a three-birdie, one-bogey 70 and carded five circles on Day 2 against a lone bogey-5 at hole 1. He gained 3.603 strokes on-the-green with 24 total putts, including two conversions from between 17 and 37 feet.

Brooks Koepka plans to return from a long injury layoff, setting his eyes on next week's team event, the Zurich Classic of New Orleans.

Koepka was last seen at the Sentry Tournament of Champions, finishing last in the field. A torn tendon in his left wrist was the culprit that caused the decline in play and forced him to the sidelines. According to Doug Ferguson of the AP, he also underwent a treatment that injected some bone marrow from his hip into the wrist. Koepka was in a soft cast for two months of that 15-week layoff. Easing into action, the defending U.S. Open champ will make his first appearance at next week's team event, choosing Marc Turnesa as his playing partner. Koepka made this a family affair last year, finishing T5 while tag-teaming with his brother, Chase.

Keegan Bradley conjured up a 1-under-par 35-36=71 during the second round of the Valero Texas Open, maintaining a spot inside the top 10 on 5-under 139.

Bradley was dialed in on day one, gaining 5.408 strokes approaching-the-green. His ball-striking cooled off today, but his flat stick pulled a 180 to somewhat save his round. After losing 1.731 strokes putting in R1, today he sank three putts from outside nine feet to gain more than a stroke in the putting department. In three previous trips to the Valero, Bradley is 2-for-3 including a T9 back in 2011. Bradley has posted par or better in all four of his weekend rounds at TPC San Antonio which bodes well for his chances this week.

Defending champion Edoardo Molinari missed the cut in the 2018 Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco; his 75-74=149 insufficient to make the weekend.

It was a bad day for last year's play-off contenders because Paul Dunne, who Molinari defeated 12 months ago, also shot 149. They missed the cull by two swings. Other notables that will join them and get the weekend off include: 149- Chris Wood ... 150- Scott Jamieson, Stephen Gallacher, 151- George Coetzee, Eddie Pepperell ... 152- Danny Willett ... 154- Pablo Larrazabal

Ashun Wu wasted a superb start to post a second round 33-40=73 and hit the halfway mark of the Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco on 2-under 142, five swings behind leader Alvaro Quiros.

The Chinese golfer flew round the back nine (his first), posting birdies at 10, 14, 16 and 18. At that stage 6-under, he was just one back of the long time Friday leader Quiros. It stayed that way until he was four holes from home. He made bogey-5 at the sixth, bogey-6 at the eighth and a calamitous double bogey-5 at the ninth to drain all his pre-weekend excitement. He's looking for a first top ten since September's Portugal Masters (T7).

Beginning off No. 10 tee, past champ and World No. 101 Martin Laird styled a 7-under-par 30-35=65 in the second round of the Valero Texas Open to reach 6-under 138, up 61 spots on the live leaderboard to T3, three adrift of clubhouse co-leaders Zach Johnson and Ryan Moore.

The 2013 winner reeled off six birdies in his last nine holes, including five straight at 1-5, which ties a career best. In total, he racked up nine circles on 14 greens in regulation with 26 total putts, and matched the low round of the day thus far with Johnson. It's also a season low for the 35-year-old (35 rounds), eclipsing 67 (x3), most recently in R1 at last week's Heritage. On 10 (of 14) fairways, he gained 1.224 strokes off-the-tee and 2.048 approaching-the-green, and squared two bogeys at 12 (failed scramble) and 18 (3-putt from 25'9"). The Scottsdale resident kicked off with a four-birdie, five-bogey 73.

Joakim Lagergren grafted for a 1-over-par 37-36=73 which left him T7 on 3-under 141 after 36 holes of the Trophee Hassan II at Royal Golf Dar Es Salam in Rabat, Morocco.

The Swede heads into the weekend four swings back of the leader Alvaro Quiros after a day of wild ups and down. He gave a shot away at his first hole (the tenth), but got it back at the 12th. He gave another shot to the card at 13, again it took only two holes to retrieve it. Once more he dropped a shot straight away, at 16, but on this occasion it took him seven holes to atone and this time the immediate response was even worse than before: double bogey-6 at the sixth. He closed with a birdie-2 at the ninth (his second there this week) which pushed him into the top ten and made dinner taste sweeter.
