Charlie Wi crafted a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the FedEx St. Jude Classic to post 2-under 138, up 18 spots to T22 with play still in progress. UPDATE: Wi finished up at 1-over 281 on rounds of 70-68-73-70, currently T43 on the leaderboard.
The 44-year-old was 11th alternate when the field was published on Friday, so a lot of things had to go right for him to make his sixth appearance, particularly several sectional-qualifiers to the U.S. Open who then WD. His best is T28 in 2014 and he MC'd last year by 12 after 74-79. Wi's last full season on TOUR was 2014 and has primarily been playing the Web.com Tour since. This is just his second start on TOUR this season and in the first, he WD after a first-round 75 at Sanderson Farms in November, so, making the weekend in Memphis is a big deal. Wi opened with a 70 (four birdies, two bogeys, double bogey-5) and circled five in R2 against one bogey and a double bogey-6. This is his first made cut on TOUR since the 2014 Sanderson Farms 19 months ago. Fri, Jun 10, 2016 01:36:00 PM
