He struggled through the tough stretch of the 1st-6th holes with three bogies though, finishing his round with a 72 to put him in a tie for 10th.

As for Furyk, the 2003 U.S. Open champ, he was steady throughout the day, posting a pair of birdies an a pair of bogies en route to a second round 69 to leave him at 1-under for the week.

Blake Adams had the hottest round on the course today, dropping four birdies in a five hole stetch from 7-11 and another on the par-3 13th to move himself into red numbers for the week. Ernie Els is doing his best as well, currently sitting one under for his round today and 4-over for the week.

The cut line is currently sitting around +8, but could move back as the day goes on.
