There's been no shortage of action during Round 2 of the PGA Tour Championship.

A small handful of players are plunging down the leaderboard and no longer appear to be in contention.

Two of the more notable golfers are:

Scott Piercy

Scott Piercy entered the day tied for second and only one stroke back, but no longer looks like a viable contender. 

Piercy has missed too many fairways and is four over for the round through 11 holes, bringing him to one-under on the tournament.

Piercy has been on fire in 2012. He has three wins and eight top 10s, so it's a little surprising to see him fade so quickly.

He still has time to climb back up the board, but it just doesn't look like it's his weekend.

Adam Scott

After nearly winning the Open Championship and having just come off consecutive top 10 finishes, Adam Scott looked ready to breakthrough in 2012.

Round 1 looked good for Scott, who finished two-under. Yet, Scott is back to his usual inconsistent ways.

Scott has battled inconsistent putting throughout his career and isn't putting well today. At four-over for the round, Scott finds himself eight shots back of the leader through 13 holes. He sits tied for 24th.

Golf fans have been waiting for a true breakthrough campaign from the talented Australian. It looks like we'll need to wait until 2013.
