Details of Charles Howell III's DQ after the second round of Wyndham Championship:

GREENSBORO, N.C. -- Charles Howell III was disqualified prior to the start of Saturday's third round of the Wyndham Championship for using a non-conforming driver during the second round. Howell had shot a 68 on Friday to get into a tie for 10th at 6 under, five shots off Patrick Reed's lead. But PGA TOUR rules official Tony Wallin said he was alerted to a possible problem when he received a call from John Mutch, another TOUR official, around 7:30 a.m. on Saturday. Mutch, in turn, had heard from the USGA. The issue centered on a weight port cover near the toe on the bottom of Howell's TaylorMade driver that came off while he was hitting balls prior to the second round. There is a hole under the cover that is used to put hot wax in -- and without the cover, the driver has a hole in it which makes it non-conforming.
