Defending champion Renato Paratore crashed out of the Nordea Masters at Hills GC in Gothenburg, Sweden despite a second round of 2-under-par 33-35=68; his 7-over 147 total fell seven shots outside the cut mark.

The Italian was completely up against it on Friday morning and in truth it was a face saving exercise because his first lap of 79 included two double bogeys and seven bogeys against just the two birdies. The second circuit was less destructive (three bogeys), but he responded with five birdies. Other notables that will join him in getting the weekend off include: 142- Richie Ramsay ... 143- Matteo Manassero ... 144- Gregory Bourdy ... 145- Nicolas Colsaerts ... 146- Alexander Bjork ... 147- Hideto Tanihara.

Benjamin Hebert crafted his way into the top ten at the Nordea Masters with a second round of 3-under-par 33-34=67 which gave him a 36-hole total of 6-under 134, good for T7 and five swings back of the leaders.

The Frenchman has taken to the Hills Golf Club in Gothenburg, Sweden. On Friday he started on the back nine and made seven early pars against a bogey at the 15th hole, but righted his ship with an eagle-3 at the 530-yard par-5 18th hole. Soon afterwards he notched back-to-back birdies at the third and fourth, then another par breaker at the eighth left him in a strong position only for a bogey to follow at the ninth. Nonetheless it is a strong 36-hole position for the 57th ranked player on the Race to Dubai, a position he has earned largely through stealth. He is 11-for-14 for the season, with second in the Belgian Knockout his standout performance.

Scott Brown shimmied up the leaderboard with round two of the Wyndham Championship, twirling a 5-under-par 31-34=65 to reach 7-under 133 at the midpoint.

Brown opened his week with a 2-under 68 to sit right inside the top 50. He made a big move today and he did some by pelting 16 greens in regulation. That allowed him four more birdie chances versus day one and he capitalized. Highlights included a 29'8" birdie bomb at the 4th and a 23'2" splash at the 8th. A return to bermudagrass often provides a spark to Brown and that appears to be the case this week as he currently sits in 4th place in strokes gained putting (+4.822 SGP thru 36 holes). Only two golfers turned in a lower scorecard this morning (Brian Gay, 63; C.T. Pan, 64). Brown started the week ranked 118th in the FedExCup standings so his job is secure but he would love to pad his FEC totals ahead of the Playoffs which kickoff next week in New Jersey.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, defending champ and World No. 19 Henrik Stenson smoothed a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship for a 36-hole total of 7-under 133, up 36 spots on the day to T9, four adrift of clubhouse leader C.T. Pan.

The Swede was solo 3rd and one back at last year's midpoint (62-66), crossing the finish line with 66-64. That was his sixth TOUR title in 170 events, third as a 54-hole leader/co-leader, and he's not won since. The Orlando resident found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, gaining 5.481 strokes approaching and 6.174 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at hole 6 (3-putt from 19'10"), offset by six circles at 12, 15, 17, 1, 5 and 7, all from inside of seven feet. The 42-year-old, who's nursing a sore elbow, posted 1.800 putts per GIR and -1.092 SG: Putting with 30 total putts. He opened with a four-birdie, two-bogey 68.

With his wife on the bag, World No. 194 C.T. Pan twirled a 6-under-par 31-33=64 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship to reach 11-under 129, up 10 spots on the day to the top of the leaderboard and good for the early 36-hole clubhouse lead.

This is the 26-year-old's 61st career event and if the lead holds up, would be his first lead/co-lead after any round. His 64 is a season low and ties his career best in 186 rounds, shot three times, most recently in R3 of the 2017 Travelers (finished T8). The University of Washington alum hit six (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 4.483 strokes approaching and 5.099 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 14, smothered by seven birdies at 1, 2, 7, 8, 15, 17 and 18, six from inside of nine feet with a long of 20'9" at the par-4 17th. Pan, whose career-best finish is T2 at the 2017 Farmers, registered 1.571 putts per GIR and 1.110 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. He kicked off with a six-birdie, one-bogey 65.

Peter Malnati is making a last-ditch effort toward making the FedExCup Playoffs and maintaining his PGA TOUR card, firing a 5-under-par 32-33=65 during round two of the Wyndham Championship, climbing inside the top 5 on the live leaderboard with a 36-hole tally of 9-under 131.

Malnati won the 2016 Sanderson Farms Championship to secure his status through the end of this 2017-18 season. He arrived in North Carolina ranked 164th in the FEC race. After a strong 36 holes, he still projects at just 135th so he will need to keep grinding over the weekend. Today, he found just eight (of 14) fairways for the second straight day. He dialed his irons in to gain 3.066 strokes on approach and then splashed home a pair of putts from outside 18 feet. One of those was an 18'1" par-saver at the 13th earlier in his round, to kept the momentum rolling. This will likely be the seventh time that Malnati has positioned himself inside the top 10 after 36 holes. One was the 2016 Sanderson Farms which he won but he also finished outside the top 10 in four of them.

David Hearn's putter went cold in round two of the Wyndham Championship but he still salvaged a 3-under-par 32-35=67 to reach 9-under at the midpoint, good for a spot on the podium on the live leaderboard.

The Canadian started his round on the 10th tee and set up six scoring chances from inside 15 feet before making the turn. Unfortunately, he only converted on one of them (6'3" birdie at the 12th). His striking remained solid as he gave himself five more birdie looks from inside 15 feet on his homeward nine, this time ticking off three more birdies. Hearn walked off the course gaining 2.838 strokes on approach but losing 0.566 strokes putting. Entering the week at 156th in the FedExCup standings, Hearn currently projects at 125th with his live positioning of T3. He'll need to warm up the putter over the weekend if he wants to earn back his full playing privileges after playing the 2017-18 season on conditional status.

Two-time Web.com Tour grad and World No. 386 Jonathan Byrd pieced together a 2-under-par 33-35=68 in the second round of the Wyndham Championship for a 36-hole total of 8-under 132, down two spots on the live leaderboard to T6, three short of early clubhouse leader C.T. Pan.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Clemson alum found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.372 approaching and 2.416 tee-to-green. He squared three bogeys at 12 (3-putt from 21'0"), 13 and 6, outpaced by three birdies at 10 (from 37'3"), 15 and 2, and eagle-3 at 5 from 37 inches. The 40-year-old recorded a pedestrian 1.857 putts per GIR and -0.363 SG: Putting, needing 32 total putts. He entered the week 183rd in the FedExCup standings and is projected at 166th.
