Cut check: Penalty could cost Johnson

That two-stroke penalty that Dustin Johnson incurred for being late to his first-round tee time could come back to haunt him. Currently at 2 over for the week, Johnson is one shot outside the current cut line.

The good news is that Johnson has only played three holes here in the second round (and is even par).

The bad news for Luke Donald, who finished in second here last year and in the top 10 each of the previous two years, is that he doesn’t have anymore holes to play this week. After a 68 on Thursday, Donald struggled to an 8-over 79 on Friday, sending him tumbling more than 100 spots down the leaderboard and well beyond the cut at 5 over.

It’s the first time Donald, who was making his season debut this week, will miss the cut in this event since 2007.

Others on the outside looking in include Zach Johnson, Y.E. Yang, Lucas Glover, Rickie Fowler and Mike Weir.
