Boo and Bubba make the cut at Muirfield

Published on July 19, 2013 with No Comments

Milton’s Bubba Watson and Boo Weekley will not be able to do as much sight seeing in Gullane, Scotland this weekend.

Both former Panthers look to have made the cut at the Open Championship hosted at Muirfield this year.

Bubba Watson climbed up the leader board on moving day as he carded a two over par 73 to finish the first two days of the tournament at +1 (143).

Despite the two over par round, Watson moved from a tie for 15th to a tie for 11th as the conditions at Muirfield seem to be even more challenging due to the very sunny conditions in Scotland literally baking the course.

Weekley, who has one PGA Tour win this season at Colonial, was not so fortunate as he was very close to falling below the cut line, which started out projected at +6 and has grown to +8.

Boo had issues coming in, which put him very close to missing the cut as he double-bogeyed two of his final four holes, including a seven on the Par 5 17th hole.

Weekley, who started the day in a tie for 59th is currently in a tie for 70th place with fellow golfers like K.J. Choi, Geoff Ogilvy, and Paul Lawrie, the 1999 Open Championship winner.

While Weekley is on the line of making the field some other notable golfers are not so fortunate due to the conditions at Muirfield.

Marc Leishman (+9), Jim Furyk (+10), Luke Donald (+10), Justin Rose (+10), Mark Calcavecchia (+10), former Open champion Tom Watson (+11), former No. 1 golfer Vijay Singh (+12), Rory McIlroy (+12), David Duval (+13), and Nick Faldo (+15) all saw their weekend plans change.

Spaniard Miguel Jimenez currently is atop the leaderboard after round two at three under par after carding a 71 today, while round one leader Zach Johnson finished round two at four over par and fell to a tie for sixth at one under.

Tiger Woods capitalized on an even par 71 on Friday during his second round to end the day in a tie for second with Henrick Stenson, Lee Westwood and Dustin Johnson heading into the weekend.

This will be the first major in 2013 that Weekley has made the cut while Watson has made the cut at all three majors so far this season.
