Past champ and World No. 311 Rory Sabbatini crafted a 1-under-par 34-35=69 in the second round of The Honda Classic to reach 2-under 138, up seven spots on the live leaderboard to T5, one adrift of early clubhouse leader Luke List.

The Arizona product is making his 11th appearance with four prior top 25s among seven cashes and missed cuts in his last two tries (2016, 2017). He owns two top 10s, including a T9 in 2004 (CC at Mirasol) and a win in 2011 in his first visit to PGA National. The South African's victory in 2011 (as 54-hole leader) is his most recent of six PGA TOUR titles. He kicked off this week with a four-birdie three-bogey 69 and carded another 69 with three circles against two squares on nine (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation. The 41-year-old registered 1.769 putts per GIR and 1.576 SG: Putting with 29 total putts.

Local resident Louis Oosthuizen settled for a 2-under-par 37-35=72 during the second round of The Honda Classic, giving him a two-day tally of 1-under 139, still good for a seat inside the top 10.

Oosthuizen finished with a fury on day one but couldn't build on that momentum today. He missed a pair of scoring chances from inside 10 feet on his opening four holes, swallowed a pair of bogeys before the turn, before finally circling a birdie at the par-4 12th. It was converted from 22'2" while his second birdie came two holes later from just 2'2", a day full of "2s". While a round of 2-over 72 doesn't sound great on paper, the current field average is 73.42 meaning Oosthuizen still beat the field by more than one stroke today. After his opening round he said this, "When I'm here, I play almost every day, so it feels the same thing. It's just a few more people walking with and watching you." That local knowledge could pay off over the weekend, making him an appealing option for DFS Weekend Slates.

Past champ and World No. 55 Russell Henley pieced together an even-par 33-37=70 in the second round of The Honda Classic to post 2-under 138, up three spots on the live leaderboard to T5, one shy of early clubhouse leader Luke List.

The Georgia alum was solo 2nd thru 36 holes (on 10-under) when he won here in 2014, his second (of three) TOUR titles. He raced out today with three straight circles at holes 1-3, each from between 11 and 28 feet, but then played his final 15 holes in 3-over, overshadowing a walk-off birdie-4 (from 28 inches) with bogey-5s at 4 (3-putt from 23'10") and 12, and double bogey-5 at 17 (tee ball in the water). The 28-year-old striped 12 (of 14) fairways and hit 12 greens in regulation, recording 1.177 SG: Off-the-Tee but -0.558 SG: Approach and -0.951 SG: Around-the-Green. He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.918 SG: Putting with 28 total putts.

Thomas Pieters raced his way around PGA National's Champion Course in round two of The Honda Classic, smoothing an even-par 36-34=70 to reach 1-under 139 at the midpoint, good for a current share of 11th place with a very good chance to crack the top 10 before day's end.

The powerful Belgian went off at 6:45 a.m. local time this morning alongside Luke List (their third, Danny Lee WD'd during R1). With nobody in front of them, they were able to cash in on the back nine before the heavy winds arrived. Starting on the 10th tee, he traded three birdies with a bogey before giving that one shot back on his way into the clubhouse. The early scoring average on the back nine is +2.52 so Pieters' score of 1-under 34 beats the field average by 3.52 strokes. Pieters piercing ball flight looks great in the wind, but he'll need to hold on for two more rounds. World No. 42 has three worldwide wins since the start of 2015 but he's still searching for his first PGA TOUR victory, making his 22nd start this week.

Overnight co-leader and World No. 45 Webb Simpson birdied his final hole to salvage a 2-over-par 35-37=72 in the second round of The Honda Classic, dropping four places on the live leaderboard to T5 on 2-under 138, one back of early clubhouse leader Luke List.

The 32-year-old circled birdie-3s on his first (10th hole) and his last, from 13'10" and 7'6", respectively. In between, he squared bogeys at 15 and 2, and ate double bogey-7 at 18 after hitting his third into the water. The Wake Forest alum found nine (of 14) fairways and mustered eight greens in regulation, losing 2.456 strokes approaching-the-green but gaining 1.204 around-the-green. He posted 1.750 putts per GIR and 1.185 SG: Putting with 26 total putts.

Battling blustery conditions, Luke List won the battle with PGA National's Champion Course during round two of The Honda Classic, sprinting toward a 4-under-par 34-32=66 to reach 3-under 137 on the week, good for the early clubhouse lead with play still in progress.

Going off in a twosome alongside Thomas Pieters, the duo was able to race their way around PGA National and play much of the course before the heavy winds arrived. Other than a good tee time, List racked up this score with strong ball-striking, landing 13 greens in regulation, gaining 2.804 strokes approaching-the-green. That included a 146-yard approach that landed inside two feet, a 205-yard tee shot that landed inside five feet, and a 279-yard approach that landed inside six feet. If this lead holds then it will go in the books as his third career 36-hole lead/co-lead on TOUR, with the latest coming this fall at THE CJ CUP @ NINE BRIDGES. He went on to finish T5 in that event. With the course currently playing 3.33 strokes over-par, this should easily beat the field average by more than seven shots by day's end. One of the strongest rounds from anyone this year.

Julia Suri fired an impressive bogey-free 5-under-par 32-35=67 in round two of the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters but his 36-hole total of 3-under 141 was a shot outside the cut line.

The American had much work to do after his opening 74 at Doha GC and nearly played himself into the weekend after a round featuring five birdies and 13 pars. Four of those came on his opening nine, meaning he needed another two coming home but Suri could only find one more and four closing pars meant the axe fell. Make a mental note for future starts, though, that he can score well on this course. Others to miss the cut of 4-under 140 included: 141- Jordan Smith, Shubhankar Sharma, Matthew Southgate ... 142- Thorbjorn Olesen, Richie Ramsay ... 143- Jeunghun Wang (defending champion).

Course horse George Coetzee showed his liking for Doha GC once more, blasting a 6-under-par 34-32=66 in Friday's second round at the Commercial Bank Qatar Masters to jump 34 spots up the leaderboard to tied sixth after 36 holes.

At 9-under 135, the South African is just two shots back from leader Adrian Otaegui. Coetzee had a run of 2-5-12-7 at this venue from 2013 to 2016 and today's 66, his third lowest round in Qatar, sets up him for another big finish. An opening pair of birdies set the three-time European Tour winner on his way and he bounced back from a bogey at 6 with another gain at 7. Coming home, he ticked 12, 13, 16 and 18 to climb into the top 10.
