AT&T Byron Nelson Tracker

6:45 p.m.: Kuchar in with par at 18 and will miss the cut for the first time since the Shell Houston Open in April, 2017. The streak ends at 30. Jason Day, Dustin Johnson and Adam Hadwin now share the longest cuts-made streak on Tour at 17.

6:30 p.m.: Aaron Wise finished strong with a pair of birdies on seven and eight to shoot 8-under 63 in Round 2 and keep pace with leader Marc Leishman. Wise, 21, is now one shot behind Leishman going into the weekend. Brian Gay is currently third at 13 under with Jimmy Walker and Eric Axley T-4 at 11 under. And it looks like Kuchar’s cuts made streak will come to an end at 30. He’s 1 under through 17 and needs to hole out for eagle at the par-4 18th to have a shot at making the cut. Heck of a run, Kuch.

5:15 p.m.: It’s a good thing Ricky Barnes was going to miss the cut anyway, because he signed for an incorrect scorecard and took a DQ after shooting 1-over 72 in Round 2. Elsewhere, Aaron Wise is now 12 under for the week and just three shots off leader Marc Leishman with three holes left in his second round. One other situation to monitor – Matt Kuchar is right on the cut line at 3 under through 12 and trying to make his 31st consecutive cut. His current streak of 30 is best on Tour by far, with Jason Day, Adam Hadwin and Dustin Johnson next in line at 17.

4:30 p.m.: Aaron Wise keeps rolling, he’s 5 under through 12 and four shots off the lead at 11 under for the week. We know he’s got serious game as an individual NCAA Champion and winner on the Web.com Tour, and he keeps rolling coming off a T-2 finish at the Wells Fargo Championship. Seems like only a matter of time until this 21-year-old becomes a regular contender on Tour.

3:40 p.m.: Guys in the afternoon wave will need a ton of birdies to work their way up the board, and Aaron Wise is doing just that at 4 under through 9. He’s 10 under and five shots back of Leishman, who opened 61-66 to start the week. Sergio Garcia is at even par through six and in danger of missing the cut, which currently stands at 3 under. Speaking of the cut, Smylie Kaufman will miss the cut for the 11th straight week. But after an opening-round 77, a typical number for Kaufman these days, he bounced back with a 4-under 67. That’s his lowest round since the Sanderson Farms Championship in October and perhaps a sign that there might be light at the end of the tunnel for one of the worst slumps in professional golf at the moment.

2:30 p.m.: Well, that’s a little more like it from Jordan Spieth. He made six birdies on the back nine and shot 5-under 66 to get back in the mix. Now T-14 at 7 under for the week. And Marc Leishman also shot 5-under 66 to follow up on a career-low 61 Thursday. He’s at 15 under and holds a two shot lead over Brian Gay.
