The 2013 Honda Classic rolled on during Friday's second round and drastic changes were made on the leaderboard.

Camilo Villegas was the leader after Thursday's action, but he was an entirely different player in the second round. He was seven over on Friday and did not make the cut. 

Luke Guthrie took over the top spot after shooting a 63, which is the lowest single-round score from any player at the tournament thus far. 

Here is a look at the updated leaderboard with a recap from the biggest storylines at PGA National from the first two days.

Biggest Storylines

Rory's Teeth

Golf fans looking for Rory McIlroy are much better off searching a dentist's office than PGA National.

With all that McIlroy has accomplished, it is easy to forget that he is just 23 years old. But when it is revealed that he hasn't had his wisdom teeth removed yet, it is pretty easy to remember how young he is. 

As ESPN's Bob Harig notes, McIlroy withdrew from the tournament due to the pain his wisdom teeth—which he said would soon be taken out—were causing him too much pain. 

Anyone who waited too long to have this operation knows how much pain these teeth can cause, and McIlroy should certainly see a dentist before his next tournament. 


Luke Guthrie's Excellent Second Round

The young Northern Irishmen's exit allowed another 23-year-old to shine on Friday. 

Luke Guthrie had seven birdies and no bogeys during his second run through the course. His 68 on Thursday was a quality round, but his 63 yesterday was truly excellent. 

It was an extremely promising showing from the PGA Tour rookie, and he proved that he is one of several young players capable of winning events this year. 

Now, he must show that he can play well on the weekend, and that Friday's round was not a fluke. 


Tiger's Mediocre Start

Tiger Woods broke even on the opening day. It was not a terrible performance, and it certainly left him room to put himself in excellent position with a good day on Friday. 

But after he finished Round 2, he was once again even. After two 70s, there is reason to seriously doubt Woods' ability to finish near the top of the leaderboard. 

Although he took second at this tournament last year, it will take a surprising turnaround for him to come close to repeating that accomplishment. 

In all likelihood, one of golf's major stars will not win the 2013 Honda Classic.
