Matthew Southgate made a fast birdie-eagle start and signed for a 5-under-par 30-35=65 in round one of the Aberdeen Standard Investments Scottish Open at Gullane in East Lothian, good enough for T1 in the clubhouse.

Right now, that's a shot behind on-course leaders Julien Guerrier, Robert Rock and Rickie Fowler. It's no surprise to see the World No. 165 up there as he's very much a links specialist. A popular pick in Ireland last week after his T5 in the Open de France, Southgate had to settle for T59 at Ballyliffin. But managers who kept the faith here are being rewarded so far after his quick burst from the gate this morning. The Englishman hit the top of the leaderboard early after his birdie at the opener and eagle-3 at No. 2 and he was out in just 30 swishes after a pair of par breakers at 8 and 9. He slowed on the back nine as birdies at 11 and 12 were wiped out by bogeys at 10 and 13.

Playing the Seaside Course, World No. 100 C.T Pan bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in the second round of The RSM Classic and at even-par 71-71=142, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 77 pros and one amateur from a field of 155 pros and one amateur made the 36-hole cut of 2-under 140. Pan, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, was highest up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the road and ended his consecutive cuts made streak at 12, which included three straight top-25 finishes on arrival. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, the 27-year-old rang up seven birdies but took the luster off with three bogeys and a triple bogey-7 on his first hole. For the short week, he totaled nine birdies versus six bogeys and the triple, and ranked T91 in GIR at 66.67 percent (24/36). Other notable early exits include: 141- Keith Mitchell .. 142- Jim Furyk; Michael Thompson .. 143- Stewart Cink; Sam Ryder; Whee Kim; Bill Haas .. 144- Chesson Hadley .. 145- Russell Henley .. 146- Bud Cauley.

Cameron Champ kept his game on cruise control during round two of The RSM Classic, coasting to a 7-under-par 33-30=63 to reach 11-under 131 at the midpoint which puts him in a share of second place, just three off the torrid pace set by Charles Howell III.

The Texas A&M product was slow out of the gate today as he missed a 7'9" par putt at the par-4 second hole. He figured out the greens shortly after that, ending with nine putts converted from outside seven feet today. That was good for 4.885 strokes gained putting. Ball-striking highlights included a pair of par-3 tee balls that landed inside five feet, including a 221-yard approach at the 12th which landed inside three feet. This matches the low round recorded on the Seaside Course this week (Jason Gore). After R1 Champ said, "length on this course is pretty much irrelevant." After gaining more than 9 strokes putting during his Sanderson Farms victory, he is continuing to prove that he's more than a one-trick pony. He has now signed sub-70 scores in 13 of his last 15 rounds played.

Nick Watney walked all over the Plantation Course at Sea Island Golf Club, posting an 8-under-par 31-33=64 during round two of The RSM Classic, flying into third place on the live leaderboard as he sits on 9-under 133.

Watney gained 2.198 strokes on approach in round one but couldn't catch fire with the putter. That changed today as he split 12 (of 14) fairways and landed 17 greens. It probably felt like another cold-putter day after a three-putt bogey to start his round. He needed just 10 putts over the next eight holes, aided by a hole-out eagle at the par-5 eighth hole. This is a season-low score for Watney and his lowest recorded since another 64 since R2 of the 2017 Greenbrier. Jason Gore has the honors of low score today (7-under 63) but Watney's 8-under 64 is the lowest relative to par today and also the lowest recorded on the Plantation Course on Friday. Watney arrived with a missed cut and solo 85th on his RSM resume so this will easily result in a new tournament best come Sunday afternoon.

Charles Howell III remains blemish-free at the midpoint of the RSM Classic, coasting to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 33-31=64 during round two at Sea Island's Seaside Course, giving him a halftime score of 14-under 128 which is three clear of Jason Gore and five shots clear of the rest of the pack.

CH3 piped all 14 fairways and landed all 18 greens on day one. He regressed today but not by much, still splitting 12 (of 14) fairways and finding 16 greens in regulation. His putter was strong again today, splashing home four putts from outside 13 feet. Yesterday was his lowest career round recorded at the Plantation Course and today was his second-lowest round recorded at the Seaside Course (R4 62 in 2010). Making his ninth appearance at this event, he is looking to pick up his fifth top 15 at the RSM and also hopes to secure the third PGA TOUR title of his career (529th career start). His last win came way back in 2007 at Riviera Country Club. This will be his eighth career 36-hole lead/co-lead and first since the 2010 Heritage. He is 0-for-7 in converted those to wins.

Playing the Plantation Course, local resident and World No. 45 Brian Harman carded a 4-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of The RSM Classic for a 36-hole total of 8-under 134, up four spots on the live leaderboard to T3, six adrift of leader Charles Howell III, who was also the 18-hole pace-setter.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Georgia alum found 10 (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, recording 1.733 putts per GIR. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 11 (3-putt), camouflaged by five circles at 13, 16, 18, 1 and 9. The 31-year-old, who finished T4 here last year, is chasing his third TOUR title, first since a come-from-behind win at the 2017 Wells Fargo. He's a St. Simons Island, Georgia, resident and trains at Sea Island.

Playing the Seaside Course, World No. 295 Ryan Blaum fired a 5-under-par 35-30=65 in the second round of The RSM Classic to reach 8-under 134, up 13 places on the live leaderboard to T3, three short of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jason Gore and six shy of the leader on the course Charles Howell III, who was the 18-hole pace-setter.

The Duke alum landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.583 strokes off-the-tee but gaining 0.737 on approach and 0.876 around-the-green. He squared three bogeys at holes 1, 3, and 8, outpaced by eight birdies at 3, 7, 9 and five straight at 13-17. The 35-year-old's split included four conversions from between 11 and 31 feet, and a hole-out 3 at 14 from 36'10" away, posting 1.500 putts per GIR and 4.011 SG: Putting. This is his third RSM with a best of T71/MDF two tries ago in 2017, and checked in 3-for-4 on the season with one top 25, a T20 at the Sanderson Farms three starts ago.

Jason Gore went wild at Sea Island's Seaside Course during round two of The RSM Classic, tossing together a 7-under-par 33-30=63 to reach 11-under 131 at the midpoint, placing him at solo second on the live leaderboard.

The Pepperdine product cracked the field this week via sponsor's invite. He entered with missed cuts in 16 of his last 17 PGA TOUR appearances but he's not letting that stop him this week at Sea Island Golf Club. Gore traded six birdies with a pair of bogeys at the Plantation Course on Thursday. Today he turned his attention toward the tougher Seaside Course and took it even lower. It was ball-striking that got the job done early but his putter warmed up by day's end. He rolled in four putts from outside 11 feet including a 26'8" birdie bomb at the par-3 17th. That was good for 4.990 strokes gained putting at the time he walked off the course. This is the lowest round (by two strokes) recorded at the Seaside Course so far this week.

Tommy Fleetwood has to win this week's DP World Tour Championship to capture the Race to Dubai for a second successive season and his bid remains firmly on track after a second bogey-free round at the Earth Course, a 5-under-par 34-33=67 which took him to 8-under 136 and up four spots to tied sixth.

That's three behind leader Matt Wallace. The equation for Fleetwood is simple; he has to take the trophy and then hope great friend Francesco Molinari finishes sixth or worse. With Molinari down in T27 on 3-under after a Friday 73, Fleetwood's hopes took a jump today. He had to grind out a score in Thursday's opener, adding some gloss with birdies at two of final five holes for a 69. But this morning he looked much more fluent, picking up shots at 1, 8, 10, 11 and 15. A look at his scorecard shows that all those birdies were on par 4s. If Fleetwood can continue to keep the bogeys away and cash in on the par 5s this weekend, what looked a long-shot could become a very realistic possibility.

Eddie Pepperell gave it a go at the season-ending DP World Tour Championship but his back troubles forced him to withdraw ahead of round two.

The Englishman recently made the journey to China for the WGC-HSBC Champions but was left in pain on the physio's table instead of teeing it up. With a few weeks of rest he hoped to compete this week in Dubai and opened the week with a 5-over 75 to find himself just one stroke in front of last place. He provided an update today on social media, starting with an apology to first alternate Benjamin Hebert and then saying "My back was good yesterday but unfortunately not right today. Pretty gutted and frustrated to WD today." A pair of wins this year has vaulted him to 35th in the OWGR but he remains a risky option for gamers moving forward until he can give his back a rest. As we know with back injuries, simply resting doesn't always do the trick.

Adrian Otaegui stayed in the mix after round two of the DP World Tour Championship at Jumeirah Golf Estates in Dubai, piecing together a 4-under-par 34-34=68 to reach 10-under 134 at the midpoint, good enough for a three-way tie for second place and one behind the lead of Matt Wallace.

Otaegui, a winner of the Belgian Knockout earlier this year, played a bogey-free opener to share the first-round lead with Jordan Smith and dropped just a single shot today, at the very first hole. It proved a very minor distraction for the Spaniard as he hit back with a pair of deuces on the par 3s at 4 and 6 along with another par breaker at 7. He stayed in the top two by splashing more red numbers at 11 and 14 but couldn't find the birdie at the par-5 18th that would have seen him tie Wallace at the top. Otaegui has resided in the top two after 36 holes on five previous occasions on the European Tour but gone backwards each time, finishing 10-7-13-6-19, so that's a trend he'll want to reverse this weekend even though it's a big ask in such elite company.
Nov 16 - 9:00 AM

Nicholas Lindheim fired a 5-over-par 36-39=75 (Seaside Course) during round one of The RSM Classic and then withdrew from the event prior to this second round.

Lindheim is no stranger to mid-tournament WDs, as this will be the sixth of his career in just 50 total starts. He's also backed out of a few recent events where he was an alternate. There was no reason cited today but he has cited illness and knee injuries in the past. Lindheim has used the Web.com Tour Finals each of the last two seasons to earn his playing privileges. It's hard to maintain status on TOUR when you are withdrawing from over 10 percent of events entered. Gamers can stay away until he proves a clean bill of health.
