Rahm grabs lead at halfway mark at TPC Boston

AP | The Sun Chronicle Jon Rahm hits from the second fairway during the second round of the Dell Technologies Championship on Saturday

Round Two of The Playoffs goes this week in New England.

PGA TOURDELL TECHNOLOGIES CHAMPIONSHIPSite: Norton, Mass. Course: TPC Boston. And what a playoff atmosphere it ought to be.

While world number one Johnson's game went south, Spieth and Rose are trending upwards with identical scores for the second straight day.

Rahm is well aware that his emotionality on the course can at times hinder his play.

Chun's 68 followed a 66 on Thursday as she seeks her first win of 2017 after four runner-up finishes. Like Rahm, he is a big fan of TPC Boston. The par 4 has been lengthened 49 yards and now plays 510, with the fairway split in two.

McGirt said he thinks he needs a top-15 finish to advance, but he's not "100 percent sure". The field for the TPC Boston is at 96 players after Brandt Snedeker, Scott Piercy, J.B. Holmes and Henrik Stenson withdrew.

Though McIlroy may miss the cut, he is still projected to be among the 70 players that will go on to the BMW Championship in IL the week after next. Instead of six rounds, players have four tournaments to finish among the top 25 on a money list from these tournaments to get their PGA Tour cards back.

Next up is the Dell Technologies Championship, where McIlroy a year ago rallied from six shots behind with a 65 to beat Paul Casey.

But now, there are no fewer than eight women who, mathematically at least, could end the final Major of the year as No1. The World No. 2 is yet again playing in a tournament where she has the chance to emerge as the World No. 1 player .

The 22-year-old Spaniard continued to show what was at the heart of his meteoric rise - raw power - as he shot 5-under 66 to push into the lead halfway through the Dell Technologies Championship. Rory was 34th last week in NY. PGA champion Justin Thomas made 16 pars in his round of 71, while The Open victor, Jordan Spieth, who lost to Johnson in a sudden-death playoff last week didn't make a birdie until his 13th hole and shot 72. Stenson won the tournament in 2013 and was runner-up in 2015. "Just going to need to keep the birdies coming".

Rahm is playing the event for the first occasion and is really enjoying the venue which he is also playing for the very first time this week.

LPGA rookie Sung Hyun Park won last week in Canada, which put her in range of catching So Yeon Ryu in the points race to win LPGA player of the year. That is maybe the most incredible golf story of the year. His play over the last two days is a promising sign after missing the cut in three of his previous five starts.

Louis Oosthuizen (+3687 Bookmaker) Speaking of being at his best recently, Louis is like going on a career best run it seems.

Even though Rahm enjoyed a storied amateur career and impressed in spot PGA Tour starts previous year, he was still surprised at how well he did early on in his professional career. "I feel like I'm capable".

Justin Thomas' PGA Championship win was a big day for "bro" golf. Top-five finishes here the last two years have to excite you as a fantasy owner. Maybe the most important note here is that he is now holding onto the final position in The President's Cup standings by a thread.

"Well, he needs to do what's best for the team". I played a almost ideal back nine. Great top-five to open the playoffs.
