Potter Shoots 2 Under, But Misses Cut in Puerto Rico
Saturday, March 9, 2024

    Despite making a strong late charge yesterday, it was an early double bogey on Thursday that was enough to knock Ted Potter out of the Puerto Rico Open in Rio Grande, Puerto Rico. 

    Ted began early Thursday morning with a birdie on his first hole, No. 10 at the Grand Reserve Golf Club. He then made seven pars and another birdie on No. 15, finishing the back nine at 2-under-par-34. Then came a bogey on No. 1 after an errant tee shot led to Ted having to take a drop and falling back to 1 under. But a double bogey on No. 4 put him at 1 over, and a birdie at 7 led to an even-par round of 72. 

    On Friday, Ted was at even par after 15 holes when he birdied the 16th and 17th and finished with a 2-under 70, and 2 under for the 36 holes. But it left him two short of the cut line of 4 under. 

    Also missing the cut were Seminole Daniel Berger, by two strokes, and Gator Camilo Villegas, by one. Joe Highsmith held the halfway lead at 14 under with a pair of 65s, and there was a 6-way tie for second at 12 under
