A record-tying 91 players made the cut at the PGA Tour's RBC Heritage tournament after 17 players had to complete their second rounds on Saturday morning.
Jesper Parnevik of Sweden during the second round of the RBC Heritage at Harbour Town Golf Links on April 19, 2013 in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. A record-tying 91 players made the cut at the PGA Tour's RBC Heritage tournament after 17 players had to complete their second rounds on Saturday morning.
The 91 to make the cut ties the modern-era record which was first established at the 1981 Travelers Championship.
The cut line fell at two-over after Jesper Parnevik missed a six-foot putt on the 18th hole.
"Everybody in the field at +2, put your envelopes in my locker..." Sweden's Parnevik joked on Twitter before the start of the third round.
Former winners Brandt Snedeker and Boo Weekley made the cut on the number as did fellow Americans Zach Johnson and Hunter Mahan.
James Driscoll, of Boston, has pledged $1,000 for every birdie he makes this week to victims of the Boston Marathon bombing.
Kevin Streelman birdied three of his first five holes en route to a one-under-par 70 to seize a share of the second-round lead before play was suspended Friday because of rain.
Streelman was tied with Steve LeBrun and Charley Hoffman, who finished their second rounds at three-under 68 and one-under 70, respectively.
