Padraig shoots a second round of two under par 70 on a day where he played much better but failed to convert many putts. He recorded three birdies in total and had just the one dropped shot on the par four 5th hole where he found trouble off the tee. His level par total was four shots off the cut line.
Padraig opens his account at the RSM Classic with a two over par round of 74 which leaves him way off the mark to make the cut for the weekend. He got off to a dreadful start and was four over par after five holes, a poor drive on the par four 14th leading to a double bogey after he found unchartered territory off the tee and had to take a penalty shot. He rallied well on the front nine recording two birdies but will need a very low round Friday to survive as the scoring will be low.
Padraig plays this week on the PGA Tour at the RSM Classic in Georgia.
Tee times: 2.28pm GMT with Kevin Streelman and Taylor Pendrith.
