Currently, 69 players are at 2 under or better. Another 15 are at 1 under, currently just inside the cut line. Of those 15, John Merrick is the only one left on the course.
If Merrick can birdie his final hole, the daunting 18th, he will move up to 2 under and move the cut line with him. If that happens, big names at 1 under such as Camilo Villegas, Vijay Singh, Paul Casey, Ian Poulter and defending champ Henrik Stenson will not be playing the weekend.
Others at 1 over could have a say as the second round winds down, but for now it's all on Merrick. -- Nick Zaccardi
