    Ryan McCormick on an odd situation which led to him playing an older model ball… “I teed off on No. 10 and realized when my ball was on No. 11 green that I had a different ball than I normally play, like a different version of the Pro V1, so last year's ball. I was in the hotel putting around today and just threw it in my bag, didn't think of it. I got up on No. 11 green and noticed it was different. So I played it on No. 10 and No. 11 and realized that I didn't have any other balls, because the one-ball rule, can't play any other ball, so I had one ball to play.

    “It was insane. Hit it in the fescue on No. 12 and I'm honestly thinking DQ'd. If I don't find this ball, I'm going home. We found it and, luckily, thanks to Darron (Stiles) and Trace Crowe, they had the same ball, was able to get a few two holes later. I mean, that aside, I'm just happy to be playing, it's nice. It was stressful.”

    McCormick on his mindset throughout the round… I mean, it's the most rattled I've ever been in my career. I can't believe I did that. Yeah, it was very rattling, so I'm happy to be playing the weekend.


    The 36-hole cut of 7-under 135 ties Korn Ferry Tour records for low 36-hole cut score and low 36-hole cut relative to par

    The lowest 36-hole cut score in Korn Ferry Tour history was established earlier this season (5-under 135/Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Kansas Wichita Open Benefitting KU Wichita Pediatrics)

    This marks fifth time in Korn Ferry Tour history a 36-hole cut is made at 7-under par

    Fishburn stands inside the top five through 36 holes for the fourth time in his career and first time since the 2022 Simmons Bank Open for the Snedeker Foundation (T4/finished T13), in addition to tying his career-high 36-hole position (T3/2021 Nationwide Children’s Hospital Championship/finished T34)

    Fishburn ties career-low 36-hole score at 12-under 130; he previously recorded 10-under 130 at both the 2020 and 2023 Blue Cross & Blue Shield of Kansas Wichita Opens

    Making his 112th career start on the Korn Ferry Tour, Jack Maguire (T3/-12) holds his highest 36-hole position since co-leading the 2020 LECOM Suncoast Classic (finished T7); his 12-under 130 also marks a career-low 36-hole total (previous: 11-under 131/2016 WinCo Foods Portland Open/finished T4)

    Maguire leads the field with 16 total birdies (all birdies)

    Walsh ties career-low 36-hole score at 12-under 130, matching his 14-under 130 from last week’s Price Cutter Charity Championship presented by Dr Pepper
