Beau Hossler recovered from an early error but still managed a measly 1-over-par 34-37=71 during the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational dropping him eight spots on the live leaderboard as he heads into the weekend on 5-under 135, five off the pacesetter Justin Rose.

The Texas Longhorn product tossed together a blemish-free 64 on Thursday but that was out the door, quickly, today. Starting on the 10th tee, Hossler found trouble on approach at the par-5 11th and ultimately settled for a double bogey on the second-easiest hole on the course. He bounced back with a 14'6" birdie splash at the 12th and even picked up an eagle at the par-5 first hole. Hossler would also save par twice from the 10-to-14 foot range. All that still wasn't enough to offset a few more bogeys. On the positive side of the spectrum, Hossler is still well-positioned for a weekend run as he continues his search for a maiden TOUR win.

Sponsor invite and World No. 409 Ben Crane patched together a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational, falling three spots on the live leaderboard to T11 on 5-under 135, five adrift of 36-hole, clubhouse-leader Justin Rose.

The Oregon alum landed eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, losing 0.384 strokes approaching-the-green. He squared two bogey-4s at holes 8 (3-putt from 62'1") and 16, slightly outpaced by three birdies at 1, 5 and 17, all from 10 feet and in. The 42-year-old posted 1.833 putts per GIR and 1.389 SG: Putting with 27 total putts. He avoided a further slump on the leaderboard by brushing in four par-savers from between five and 10 feet.

Ben Silverman was coasting along at Colonial Country Club before a late blemish erased most of his profits, settling for a 1-under-par 32-37=69 during round two of the Fort Worth Invitational, good for a spot on the top-10 bubble at 5-under 135.

It was a stellar opening 15 holes for the PGA TOUR rookie who converted six times from outside nine feet today. That included a pair of par-savers from the 9-to-12 foot range, a 13'9" hole out from the fringe, and a 22'4" birdie bomb at the par-5 11th. However, he swallowed a bogey at the 16th and then found water at the closing, par-4 18th. To compound the error, he then three-jacked from 12'7" to pencil a triple-bogey 7 at the final hole. On the bright side, this will be the first time he's positioned himself inside the top 20 after 36 holes for the entire 2018 calendar year. After a hot start to the season, Silverman has really cooled off. Gamers should keep an eye on the Canadian over the weekend to see if he's ready to return to form.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 259 Alex Cejka lost ground with a 1-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational, dipping two places on the live leaderboard to T10 on 5-under 135, five shy of clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

This is the 47-year-old's seventh appearance, first since a T31 in 2011. Overall, he's now 5-for-7 with a best of T26 in 2008. The Las Vegas resident opened with a five-birdie, one-bogey 66 and carded four against three on Day 2. He found 11 (of 14) fairways and nine greens in regulation, down from 13 in R1, losing 1.339 strokes approaching-the-green. Cejka's split included two conversions from between 15 and 25 feet, adding a hole-out birdie-3 at 5 from 32'1" away. He registered 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.123 SG: Putting with 25 total putts.

Local resident Tom Hoge caught fire in round two of the Fort Worth Invitational, styling a 4-under-par 31-35=66 to reach 5-under 135 on the week, good for T10 on the live leaderboard with play still in progress.

the TCU Horned Frog striped 11 (of 14) fairways and landed 14 greens in regulation. That helped keep this round relatively stress-free. His putter was the biggest asset for most of the day, splashing home four putts from outside 11 feet including a 21'2" bomb at the par-3 eighth. That flat stick did come back to bite him at the par-4 14th, three-putting from 12'10" including the final miss from just 2'2". The Fort Worth resident posted a T17 in his 2016 Colonial debut and he's well on his way to another strong finish here in Fort Worth.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 29 Satoshi Kodaira carded a 3-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the Fort Worth Invitational to post 7-under 133, up five spots on the live leaderboard to T3, three adrift of clubhouse leader Justin Rose.

The 28-year-old followed his maiden TOUR win at the RBC Heritage with a T32 in Japan and back-to-back missed cuts at THE PLAYERS and the Byron Nelson. He's back on track this week and is solid across all aspects of his game. The six-time winner on the Japan Golf Tour found 10 (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, gaining 1.119 strokes off-the-tee and 2.819 tee-to-green. He squared two bogeys at 10 and 16 (3-putt from 45'8"), outpaced by five circles at 1, 11, 12, 15 and 17, all from 10 feet and in. Kodaira recorded 1.667 putts per GIR and 0.859 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

Tyrone Van Aswegen steadied a 3-under-par 33-34=67 during round two of the Fort Worth Invitational, climbing inside the top 10 with a two-day tally of 6-under 134.

The South African traded five birdies with two bogeys in R1. The putter was the only thing holding him back and that was true again today. Van Aswegen pelted 15 greens in regulation (+3.099 strokes gained approach) but didn't make anything outside of eight feet. The highlight of the round came at the par-4 seventh where he stuck his 167-yard approach to 8 inches for a tap-in birdie. Currently T6 on the live leaderboard, this is a big improvement over his performance here last year (76-75 to miss the cut).

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 28-year-old hit eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.290 strokes off-the-tee and 2.308 around-the-green.

The FSU product's split featured five conversions from between 11 and 20 feet, adding a hole-out birdie-3 at 14 from 47'9" away. He posted 1.500 putts per GIR and 3.392 SG: Putting with 25 total putts. Koepka checked in off a T11 at THE PLAYERS, highlighted by a day- and week-tying-low 63 (9-under), that included an albatross on the par-5 16th.
