Patrick Reed takes a two shot lead going into the third round of The Barclays, but there's a whole heap of superstars on his tail. Check out the second round highlights from Bethpage Black here...
Patrick Reed and Martin Laird lead after the first round of The Barclays.

Anyone who watched The Barclays will realise Jason Day is playing golf on a different planet to everyone else at the moment. He is absolutely munching his TaylorMade R15 460 driver off the tee, while his Spider proto putter was holing putts for fun, with a 29ft, and 33ft putts made in his final round.
Here are the pairings and tee times for the final day of the Barclays at Plainville Country Club. It's tight at the top. Will it be Jason, Bubba, Sang Moon, or....? Your guess is as good as ours.
Jason Day won the Barclays in an absolute procession, his 19 under par score was six shots better than second placed Henrik Stenson. The Australian golfer has continued his form from the PGA Championship and was in a different league to the rest of the field as he took his fourth title of the season.

Magnificent McIlroy becomes European Number One in style. He's won the DP Championship and the Race to Dubai. And here's now.
We are glad to hear that Andy Sullivan has taken nothing but positives from his week in Dubai at the DP Championship Tournament. He had led after all the first three rounds, but could not withstand Rory’s final day charge. Here's his take on his week in the office.
The race to become European Number One became a two horse today in Dubai. With Shane Lowry already feeling the heat on day one, Justin Rose had a slim chance of challenging Rory McIlroy and Danny Willett for the coveted position. However, Rose wilted in the heat of Dubai carding a 78 that leaves him in T48th position. Bogies on 4, 6, 8 and 10 plus double bogies on 12 and 17 has seen the Englishman hopes all but evaporate.
