World No. 192 Patrick Rodgers bobbed and weaved to a 3-under-par 33-36=69 in the second round of the Corales Championship, up four places to T3 on 8-under 136, four swings back of 36-hole clubhouse leader Hudson Swafford (67).
The 28-year-old improved to nine (of 14) fairways and found 13 greens in regulation for a second straight lap. For a second consecutive day as well, he rang up seven birdies, but gave some back with four squares at 5, 13, 16 and 17, playing his final six holes in birdie-less 3-over. All of the Indiana native's six circles came in succession at 7-12, and registered 1.462 putts per GIR with 28 total putts. His career-best finish among 13 top 10s in 158 previous events is runner-up three times, most recently a P2 at the 2019 RSM Classic, where after making the cut T65 on the number (70-70), he catapulted up the board with 61-62.

Overnight quad-leader and World No. 535 Tyler McCumber back-pedaled with a 1-under-par 34-37=71 in the second round of the Corales Championship, down two places to T3 on 8-under 136, four shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Hudson Swafford (67).
The 29-year-old, who finished T19 as an open-qualifier in his TOUR debut here in 2018, hit 11 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, both regressions from a Day 1 65. He carded five birdies at holes 4, 7, 9, 10 and 12, taking some gloss off with two bogeys at 1 and 11 (3-putt), and double bogey-6 at 13, which completed his scoring. The Florida alum, whose co-lead after R1 was his first lead/co-lead in 64 rounds played, posted 1.769 putts per GIR with 30 total putts. His career-best finish in 23 prior events is the aforementioned T19.

World No. 1414 Robert Garrigus withdrew during Round 2 of the Corales Championship with heat exhaustion.
This is the 42-year-old's 14th mid-tourney WD in 352 events, first since the 2018 Fort Worth Invitational. After opening with 2-over 74 (2 birdies, 4 bogeys), he was 3-over thru 17 holes on Day 2 (1 birdie, 4 bogeys), seven short of the projected cut line, when his tournament came to an end. The Idaho native ended the 2017 regular season with three consecutive top-10 finishes but has recorded just one in his last 48 starts (T8, 2018 Farmers).

World No. 166 Sam Burns styled a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Corales Championship for a 36-hole total of 8-under 136, up 26 places to T3, four back of clubhouse leader Hudson Swafford, who also shot 67.
The 24-year-old checked in off a T7 at the Safeway two weeks ago, where he was the 36-hole leader by two (64-65) before falling back with 72-70. This is his second Corales after T12 in 2019 (68-74-68-66). The LSU product striped 13 (of 14) fairways and hit 15 greens in regulation, recording 1.667 putts per GIR with 29 total putts. He opened with 69 (6 birdies, 3 bogeys) on 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 GIR. Burns is chasing his first TOUR win in 62 events, looking to better a T3 at the opposite-field Sanderson Farms in 2019.

Playing this season on a Major Medical Extension, World No. 368 Kelly Kraft signed for a 4-under-par 33-35=68 after the second round of the Corales Championship, up 14 spots to T3 on 8-under 136, four adrift of 36-hole clubhouse leader Hudson Swafford (67).
The 31-year-old, who's finished in the top 5 in each of the first two editions, carded his eighth round in the 60s (of 10) at Corales Golf Course. After opening with 68, including an walk-off ace, he improved to 11 (of 14) fairways and dipped slightly to 13 greens in regulation on Day 2 in the Dominican Republic. The SMU alum was 6-under thru 12 holes, camouflaging bogey-4 at hole 2 with seven circles at 4-6, 8 and 10-12, before stalling out with a double bogey-6 at 13 and five straight pars. He posted a tidy 1.462 putts per GIR with 26 total putts. This is Kraft's first made cut since a career-tying-best solo 2nd at the 2019 opposite-field Barbasol 62 weeks but just five starts ago, where he was T3 at the midpoint (65-67-61-70).

Playing this season on a Major Medical Extension, World No. 778 Sean O'Hair smoothed a bogey-free 5-under-par 34-33=67 in the second round of the Corales Championship to reach 10-under 134, up five places to solo 2nd, two short of 36-hole clubhouse leader Hudson Swafford (67).
Making his tournament debut and his second start of the season (MC, Safeway), the 38-year-old found 12 (of 14) fairways and dipped to 12 greens in regulation (from 15 in R1). Beginning off No. 10 tee, he penciled five birdies at 10, 14, 17, 4 and 8, registering 1.667 putts per GIR with 26 total putts. The Texan, who also opened with 67, owns four TOUR victories in 367 events, most recently the 2011 RBC Canadian Open 190 starts and nine years, two months ago, where he came from three back (T5) with 2-under 68 before prevailing in extra time over Kris Blanks.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, overnight quad-leader and World No. 345 Hudson Swafford finished with a hat-trick of red toward a 5-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Corales Championship, currently the 36-hole leader by two on 12-under 132, with Sean O'Hair, who also shot 67, his closest chaser at the moment.
If this lead holds up, it would be the 33-year-old's second 36-hole lead/co-lead in 169 events. His first came at the 3-course CareerBuilder in 2017, where he led by one (65-65) and won by one (71-67) over runner-up Adam Hadwin. On 12 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, the Georgia alum recorded 1.615 putts per GIR with 27 total putts, aided by a hole-out birdie-3 at hole 8 from a greenside bunker. In all, he squared two bogey-5s at 1 and 5, outflanked by seven circles at 12, 14, 3, 4 and 7-9. The Florida native owns one TOUR win, the above-mentioned CareerBuilder (now AmEx) 76 starts ago, where after leading at the midpoint, came from two back (solo 2nd) in the finale with 5-under 67.

Making his tournament debut, first-round quad-leader and World No. 260 Scott Harrington overcame a quadruple bogey-8 but still backed up after a 2-over-par 41-33=74 in the second round of the Corales Championship, falling 18 places to T19 on 5-under 139, a distant seven in arrears of 36-hole clubhouse leader Hudson Swafford (67).
After opening with 65, the 39-year-old slept on his first lead/co-lead after any round in 85 rounds played. It was a tale of two nines, going out in 5-over 41 (2 birdies, 3 bogeys, 1 quad), before righting the ship for a 3-under home half (3 birdies). The Northwestern alum landed nine (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, posting 1.667 putts per GIR with 27 total putts. His career-best finish, and lone top 10 in 27 events, is T2 at the 2020 Houston Open.
