Cut check: McIlroy close to safety


The second round of the Valero Texas Open is winding down and there are currently 81 players at 1-over or better at TPC San Antonio.

Among them is Rory McIlroy, who added this event to his schedule to get more practice in before next week’s Masters. McIlroy is 2 under through 14 and is in pursuit of his first sub-70 round in his last six.

In the clubhouse and sitting a little closer to the projected cut line are Charl Schwartzel (+1), Ian Poulter (+1) and Shell Houston Open champion D.A. Points (+1). Defending Valero champ Ben Curtis is on the course at 1-over with four holes to play.

Among those currently on the course with ground to gain are Gary Woodland (+2/14), Scott Brown (+2/15), Cameron Tringale (+3/16) and Robert Karlsson (+3/10).

A number of notables have already completed their rounds and will not be around for the weekend at TPC San Antonio. That group includes David Toms (+8), Vaughn Taylor (+6) and Jonathan Byrd (+3).

John Daly, Chez Reavie, Nick O’Hern and 1997 champion Tim Herron are all in the clubhouse at 2-over and will have to hope a number of player fall back and allow them to move inside the top 70 and ties.
