Defending Champion Brandt Snedeker made his move up leader board shooting 3-under par round to make the cut and be around for the weekend hunt.
Snedeker playing in same group alongside Rose made for great first two days of golf.
Home town favorite Phil Mickelson squeaked in the weekend by making the cut by one shot at 1 under par for first two day of play.
Mickelson played little inconsistent with 5 birdies that were neutralized by 5 bogeys on Friday.
” I’m only seven shots off the lead on a golf course you can make up a lot of ground,” said Phil Mickelson ” I think my game is very close to clicking.”
Some of the big names that missed the cut this week was Tiger Woods who missed the cut by four shots, Jason Day by three shots, and the young crowd favorite Rickie Fowler by three shots.
Tiger will be playing four of the next five weeks in golf tournaments so missing today’s cut will allow him to pace himself for upcoming test and headed to Dubai next.
