Unless the cut line moves a stroke, Ben Crane will be headed home early from TPC Four Seasons. At least it will be a short trip for Crane, who lives in nearby Westlake and finished his first two rounds at 2 over after a pair of 71s and one shot outside the number.
Crane isn’t the only notable player on the wrong of the number.
Anthony Kim is in the clubhouse at 3 over after a 71 Friday. So is Tommy Gainey. Charlie Wi, who lost in a playoff to David Toms last week, Justin Leonard and Sean O’Hair are all headed home early as well.
Among those fighting so stay inside the cut? PLAYERS winner K.J. Choi, who is 1 over for the week and even through three holes in the second round, and defending champion Jason Day, who is also 1 over after playing his first three holes in Round 2 at 1 under.
