World No. 390 Boo Weekley handed in a 2-under-par 36-32=68 after the second round of the Travelers Championship for a 36-hole total of 6-under 134, up two spots to T4, two shy of leader Jordan Spieth.

The 43-year-old conjured six (of 14) fairways but peppered 16 greens in regulation, No. 1 in the latter thru 36 holes at 86.11 percent (31/36). He squared two, 3-putt bogeys at holes 4 (from 42'1") and 13 (from 44'1"), offset by a hole-out eagle-2 at 10 from 170 yards away, and birdies at 16 and 18, from 14'6" and 25'0", respectively. The Florida native and resident gained 3.397 stokes tee-to-green, No. 1 in SGTTG with a cumulative 6.875, but lost 0.573 strokes on-the-green, needing 32 total putts. This is his 22nd start of the season and second time he's been in the top 10 after any round. Weekley's season best among just eight made cuts is T37 at the opposite-field Puerto Rico Open, where he was T12 thru 54 holes.

Making his third appearance, first since T18 in 2014, World No. 4 Jason Day patched together an even-par 34-36=70 in the second round of the Travelers Championship and at 2-over 72-70=142, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 85 players from a field of 156 made the 36-hole cut of even-par 140 (17, T69 on the number), so a second cut of low 70 and ties will take place after 54 holes. Day, a pre-tourney 11/1 outright, was the highest up the bookmaker's food chain to exit early, and after a MC at last week's U.S. Open by nine (79-75), he's now missed consecutive cuts for the first time since the Memorial and THE PLAYERS in 2015, 107 and 111 weeks ago, respectively. The 29-year-old cancelled four birdies with four bogeys in R2 on 10 greens in regulation after opening with three birdies against three bogeys and double bogey-6 in R1. Other notable departures include: 141- Trey Mullinax .. 142- 2-time champ Bubba Watson; Harris English .. 143- Lucas Glover; 2013 champ Ken Duke .. 144- Zach Johnson; Jhonattan Vegas .. 145- Justin Thomas.

Chasing an opening five-birdie one-bogey 66, World No. 89 Daniel Summerhays shot a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to reach the midpoint on 6-under 134, up two places to T4, two shy of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 33-year-old landed 10 (of 14) fairways and pelted 16 greens in regulation, gaining 2.522 strokes tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-5 at 17, saving bogey from 13'11" after hitting his second into the water, offset by three birdies at 15, 18 and 6, two from between 11 and 14 feet. The BYU alum missed three scoring tries from inside of 13 feet, lowlighted by a 3-putt par at the par-5 13th, but did save par from 11'8" at the first. He posted a commercial 1.875 putts per GIR and 0.308 SG: Putting, needing 31 total putts. This is the Utahan's sixth Travelers with two prior cashes and one finish inside the top 70, a T11 last year (68-69-65-69). He was the 54-hole leader three starts ago at the Memorial, settling for a season-best T10 with 6-over 78.

Making his tournament debut, PGA TOUR rookie and World No. 43 Wesley Bryan tossed up a 3-under-par 33-34=67 in the second round of the Travelers Championship for a two-day total of 6-under 134, up 15 places to T4, two back of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, the 27-year-old landed 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, losing 0.311 strokes off-the-tee and carving out 0.951 SG: Tee-to-Green. He squared three bogeys at 11, 4 and 5, the latter a 3-jack from 61'2", offset by five birdie-3s at 12, 14 and a hat-trick at 1-3, and birdie-2 at eight. The South Carolina alum's split featured four from between 12 and 30 feet, posting 1.615 putts per GIR and 2.894 SG: Putting. This is his 20th start of the season with four previous top 10s, highlighted by his breakthrough win at the RBC Heritage six starts ago. In his major championship debut, Bryan missed the cut at last week's U.S. Open by 14 after rounds of 76 and a career-worst 83. He kicked off this week with a four-birdie one-bogey 67.

World No. 17 Patrick Reed authored a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to post 7-under 133, up 17 spots to T2, one adrift of 36-hole leader Jordan Spieth.

The 26-year-old outpaced one bogey with five birdies on 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation and will play out of the final threesome in R3 with Spieth and Troy Merritt. He gained 1.489 strokes off-the-tee and 1.506 approaching-the-green, recording 1.643 putts per GIR and 1.580 SG: Putting. The Texan squared the par-3 16th (failed scramble), overshadowed by five birdies at Nos. 1, 6, 8, 13 and 18, three from between 10 and 25 feet, culminating with a walk-off 3 at 18 from 13'5". This is his sixth straight Travelers, posting two previous top 25s and a best of T11 last year (70-67-68-66). Reed was the 54-hole leader five starts ago at the Wells Fargo, settling for T12 with a 3-over 75.

With inclement weather expected Friday evening and Saturday morning, Round 3 tee times at the Travelers Championship will be scheduled between 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. ET with threesomes off split tees. UPDATE: Round 3 tee times are now scheduled between 10:45 a.m. - 1:05 p.m.

Friday's second round is still in progress, so it remains to be seen how many players will make the 36-hole cut. One player who secured a later tee time and a start off No. 1 tee on Saturday is World No. 66 Anirban Lahiri, who fired a career-low bogey-free 7-under-par 33-30=63 in R2, good for the low round in the clubhouse and matching the low round of the week with 18-hole leader Jordan Spieth. He hit eight (of 14) fairways and 12 greens in regulation, circling five birdies and eagle-3 at 13 (from 32'3"), posting a stellar 1.500 putts per GIR and 5.270 SG: Putting. The 29-year-old opened his tourney debut in 3-over 73 (three birdies, two bogeys and two double bogey-5s), and currently sits T17 on the leaderboard, up 108 places on the day. His previous best on TOUR (167 rounds) was 64 two times, most recently at the 2017 CareerBuilder/R3.

Beginning off No. 10 tee, World No. 341 Troy Merritt carded a 2-under-par 34-34=68 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to reach halftime on 7-under 133, up one spot on the live leaderboard to solo 3rd, one short of clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth.

The Iowa native found 11 (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, gaining 1.062 strokes off-the-tee and 2.531 tee-to-green. He squared a lone bogey-4 at 16 (failed scramble), outpaced by three birdies at 17, 18 and 3, two from between 18 and 32 feet with a long of 31'3" at the par-4 18th. The 31-year-old posted a commercial 1.786 putts per GIR and 0.113 SG: Putting, needing 30 total putts. He missed six scoring tries from 13 feet and in, though did save par two times from between six and seven feet.

Making his tournament debut, open-qualifier and World No. 1947 Chase Seiffert fashioned a 4-under-par 32-34=66 in the second round of the Travelers Championship to reach 6-under 134, currently T4 and two shy of 36-hole clubhouse leader Jordan Spieth.

This is the Florida State alum's third career TOUR start, second this season and second as an open-qualifier. He cashed his first check with T74/MDF at The RSM Classic back in mid-November (71-65-74) and prior to that, missed the cut in his pro debut at the 2013 FedEx St. Jude Classic on a sponsor exemption. In the unlikely event the 25-year-old wins this week, he would be the third straight former Seminole to win on TOUR, joining Daniel Berger (FESJC) and Brooks Koepka (U.S. Open). He opened with a five-birdie three-bogey 68 and hit nine (of 14) fairways and 11 greens in regulation in Round 2, cancelling three birdies with three bogeys. However, the Florida native carded two eagles, the first a hole-out 2 at the third from 138 yards away, adding eagle-3 at 13 from six inches after nearly holing his second to the par 5 from 250 yards away. He posted 4.248 SG: Tee-to-Green, including 3.208 approaching-the-green, though just 0.313 SG: Putting.
