For the first time, Phil Mickelson may have made the cut, but again this Old White TPC has claimed some big names, and it includes the name of Kevin Kisner.
Angel Cabrera is also in the tournament and for this weekend he is all done, and he is not the only one among the players. Former champions of Greenbrier Classic like Stuart Appleby, Jonas Blixt have also finished their time on the course. Cabrera at 4 over, Appleby at 9th over finished 147th and Blixt at 1 over.
The world ranking of Kisner is 24th, he shot a 70 Friday to finish at 2-over, he missed the cut by three shots. He was done pretty much by hitting only 18 of 36 greens in regulation. However, by the “shots gained” formula of the PGA Tour, he lost four strokes on approach shots to the field.
Si Woo Kim also hit the bricks at 1 over. This was the first visit to former World top-ranked player Luke Donald and he missed at 4 over.
The John Daly the ever-flamboyant, too, missed badly at 6 over. Dru Love, missing at 3 over lost to his father by 11 strokes.
Speaking about his performance in the event, Cabrera said, ”It is an interesting tournament as renowned players have come here to play. It was a solid say.”
On the other hand Potter, who is also in the tournament said “I got a good in the tournament with a couple of birdies right off the bat. Being here, I am very happy and I am looking forward to the weekend.”
So far, in this season, Potter has played only one other event of the Tour, he missed the cut at the U.S. Open. This is going to be an important event for Potter.
