Harris English stumbled out of the gate in round two of the Wyndham Championship but rallied on his way home to record a 3-under-par 30-37=67 and climb to 9-under 131 at the midpoint, good for a spot inside of the top 10.
The Georgia Bulldog started on the back nine this morning and sputtered with a bogey, double bogey, and just one birdie on his outward half. English stayed patient and the birdies started to flow in his way into the clubhouse. It started with a 33'1" birdie bomb from the fringe at the par-4 second and he would add four more circles before his day was done. Three of those last four were converted from outside of nine feet. English has now been T45 or better through 36 holes in seven of his last eight starts. He's turned all seven of those into top 20s and is well on his way to another this week in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Overnight co-leader Tom Hoge slowed his pace during round two of the Wyndham Championship, penciling a 2-under-par 35-33=68 to reach 10-under 130 at the halfway mark which is good for a share of the early clubhouse lead with play still in progess.
The man from Fargo hit nine fairways today (three more than R1) and 14 greens (same as R1). Despite the traditional stats being slightly better, the results were much worse. "I was in the rough a little more often and, you know, a little out of position where I got above the hole on a few of the pins coming in, have some fast putts and a little more work. Hopefully, kind of got that out of my system and go make some birdies on the weekend now." This opening 36 falls one shy of his career-best on TOUR. Funny enough, that low 36 also came at Sedgefield CC when he opened 62-67 during the 2015 Wyndham Championship. That was good for a share of the 36-hole lead that week and remains his only 36-hole lead on TOUR. Hoge went on to finish T38 that week. The TCU product is still in search of his first PGA TOUR title.

Si Woo Kim kept his foot on the gas with a 5-under-par 30-35=65 during round two of the Wyndham Championship to reach 10-under 130 at the midpoint and give him a piece of the clubhouse lead with play still in progess.
Kim entered with a boom-or-bust resume at Sedgefield Country Club. He's on his way toward another boom after trading 14 birdies with four bogeys on his opening 36 holes. Today, he piped 12-of-14 fairways and landed 13 greens. He started on the back nine today and ease into his day with nine straight pars. From there, his card got very colorful, converting from the fringe at the first to get things started. Overall, he ended with six birdies and one bogey, all on his homeward nine. Kim has now been better than the field scoring average in 10-of-14 rounds played at Sedgefield Country Club. If this co-lead holds by day's end then it'd be his third time leading/co-leading after 36 holes of a PGA TOUR event. The first time came at this same event, leading the 2016 edition before going on to win. His most recent 36-hole lead came at the 2019 Valero Texas Open (T4).

Cameron Percy lasted just 28 holes at the Wyndham Championship before calling it quits due to a rib injury.
Percy had this rib injury flare up at the Workday Charity Open and he returned two weeks later to miss the cut at the 3M Open then posted a T25 at the Barracuda Championship. That top 25 positioned him within striking distance of the FedExCup Playoffs, entering this week at 140th needing to reach 125th or better. The Aussie opened with a 1-over 71 then posted an even-par 35 on his outward nine this morning. His last shot of the day was a drive on the par-4 11th. He likely needed to make up three to five shots on the closing seven holes, depending on where the cutline falls. Instead, he will now have at least a month to rest up and give it a go again in the fall.

Chris Stroud swallowed an opening-round 74 at the Wyndham Championship and then withdrew from the event, citing a back injury.
Stroud continues to battle with injuries which has been the case for his entire career. Playing his 18th event of the season, this is his second mid-tourney WD and will officially eliminate him from FedExCup Playoffs consideration. Over his career, he now has 19 mid-tournament WDs in 365 events played. That's one of the highest WD-to-start rations you will see of anyone on TOUR, which continues to make him a high-risk option for weekly fantasy gamers.

Alternate and World No. 567 Vince Covello withdrew after Round 1 of the regular-season-ending Wyndham Championship citing a back injury.
This is the North Florida product's first mid-tourney WD in 11 career events and ends his rookie campaign at a projected 235th in the FedExCup standings. Beginning at 40th in the Korn Ferry Tour priority rankings and with the season shortened due to the pandemic, this was just his 10th start and only made one cut, a T47 at the season-opening Greenbrier. En route to a 4-over-par 36-38=74 today, the 37-year-old outbalanced one birdie with two bogeys (both 3-jacks) and a triple, losing 1.707 strokes off-the-tee and 2.574 on-the-green. He hit a more-than-respectable 15 greens in regulation, but posted a 2.133 putts per GIR, lowlighted by a 3-putt par at the par-5 fifth from 21'6".

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 218 Chesson Hadley fashioned a 5-under-par 32-33=65 in the first round of the Wyndham Championship with play suspended for the day due to thunderstorms.
With preferred lies in effect, the Raleigh, North Carolina, native landed eight (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation. He lost stokes off-the-tee (-0.653) and around-the-green (-0.214), but gained 2.288 on approach. The 33-year-old squared a lone bogey-5 at 11, outpaced by six circles at 10, 13, 14, 1, 4 and 8, all birdie-3s. He posted 1.600 putts per GIR and 2.895 SG: Putting, converting three scoring chances from between 11 and 22 feet, and also saved par 18 (his ninth hole) from 15'8". The Georgia Tech alum checked in 11-for-18 on the season with five top 25s, including a 17th at the opposite-field Barracuda two weeks ago, where he was T10 after 54 holes.

Past champ and World No. 115 Si Woo Kim tossed up a 5-under-par 33-32=65 in the first round of the Wyndham Championship with play suspended for the day due to inclement weather.
With preferred lies in effect, the South Korean found nine (of 14) fairways and 15 greens in regulation, losing 1.086 strokes around-the-green but gaining 1.278 off-the-tee and 1.849 on approach. He squared three bogeys at holes 2, 12 and 17, overpowered by eight birdies at 1, 5, 8, 11, 13-15 and 18, five from between 11 and 31 feet. The 25-year-old, who's currently T5 on the leaderboard, registered 1.533 putts per GIR and 2.275 SG: Putting with 29 total putts. When he won his first of two TOUR titles here in 2015 as the 54-hole leader by four, he fired a then-course-record 60 in R2 (68-60-64-67) en route to a 5-shot romp. Kim, who has yet to record a top-10 finish this season in 22 starts, arrived off a T13 at last week's PGA, his third top 25 of the campaign, where he was T13 after 54 holes (69-68-68-68).
