Patrick Rodgers slammed his trunk early following a 4-over-par 41-34=75 during round two of the Barbasol Championship, closing the work week at 3-over 145, falling short of the cut line by five strokes.
Rodgers opened the day with a hole-out eagle from 150 yards at the par-4 11th and tacked on a tap-in birdie at the par-5 16th hole. From there he played the final 10 holes at 7-over. On the day, he missed five putts from inside nine feet, three from inside six feet. He lost 4.274 strokes to the field putting today, and ranks 127th (of 131) in the field on the week. Bermudagrass greens seem to be his Kryptonite, at least early in his career. Other notables that will join Rodgers and get the weekend off include: 141- Lee McCoy, Auburn's Matt Gilchrest, Andrew Loupe ... 142- Nick Taylor ... 143- Tim Wilkinson, Scott Stallings, Jerry Kelly, John Senden ... 144- Hunter Mahan, Peter Malnati ... 145- Alex Cejka, Cameron Smith ... 146- Alex Redfield (recorded an albatross in R1) ... 147- Sung Kang ... 148- Johnson Wagner. With 82 golfers making it through the cut, there will be a secondary 54-hole cut, as well. Jul 15 - 8:21 PM
