Potter Finishes Well in Mississippi, But It's Not Enough
Saturday, October 3, 2020

    Ted Potter saved his best for the last nine holes at the Sanderson Farms Championship yesterday, but it wasn't nearly enough for him to make the cut, which came at 3 under par. Ted's performance for 27 holes left him at seven over par; he shot 5-over-77 without a birdie on Thursday, and had three bogeys and one birdie on the back nine yesterday.

    To his credit, Ted didn't give up, and he birdied the first three holes on the front and added one on No. 8 for a 4-under 32 and a second-round 70. But his 77-70-147 left him six strokes short of the cut line. 

    Except for Charley Hoffman, the first-round leaders at 8-under-par 64 all fell by the wayside in round 2. Hoffman's 3-under 69 put him at 11-under 133, two strokes behind new leader Keegan Bradley's 66-65-131, 13 under.

    Defending champ Sebastian Munoz added a 73 to his 64 and dropped to 7 under, tied for 12th; Kevin Chappell shot 72 and remained at 8 under, tied for seventh, and Jimmy Walker's 64-77-141 left him right on the cut line, tied for 45th. 

    Gator Camilo Villegas, looking to get a full exemption back, posted rounds of 69-69-138, 6 under, and is tied for 18th. Matt Every, who slipped in from the alternate list, blew his chance to make the cut with a poor final nine holes. Matt shot 1-under 71 on Thursday, and was still in the hunt after a 2-under 34 on the back. But he made three bogeys on the front without a birdie and fell back to even par. Matt made nine birdies and nine bogeys for the two days.

    Seminole Hank Lebioda made another cut with 69-71-140, 4 under, and is tied for 35th.
