Jones goes from cut to contention

WHITE SULPHUR SPRINGS, W. Va. -- For most of Friday, Matt Jones was in danger of missing the cut at The Greenbrier Classic.

He three-putted the first hole from 64 feet to fall back to even for the tournament. And when Jones missed a 6-footer to save par at No. 7, he had two strokes to make up in order to play the weekend.

Turns out, the Aussie not only made the cut, he'll start the third round in contention after a flurry of six consecutive birdies to end the round. Jones is 5 under after that 66 and three strokes off the lead.

Jones' barrage of birdies began at the 13th hole where he made a 13-footer. He followed with three more putts of 4, 15 and 13 feet, got up and down from beside the green at the par-5 17th and finished with a 12-footer for birdie at the 18th hole.
