South Africa’s Branden Grace managed to fight back on Friday to narrowly avoid the projected cut at the Bermuda Championship.
Grace did just enough with his second-round 70 to finish on one over par at the halfway mark of the event, the same score the cut was confirmed at ahead of the weekend’s action.
After a troubling opening round of 73, on Friday the 31-year-old fared a lot better with his round of one under to make some progress up the leaderboard.
In T58, Grace still has plenty of hard work ahead of him over the course of the next two rounds, but some more consistency could have him rise even further.

He will, however, start Saturday’s third round nine shots behind leaders Ryan Armour and Wyndham Clark, who sit on eight under par for the event.
The two Americans hold a one-shot lead over Kramer Hickok, who is on seven under, while Doc Redman and Ollie Schniederjans are a further stroke back on six under.
