The first appearance at the Harbour Town Golf Links for Dutch Fork graduate Wesley Bryan is going along nicely.
The former USC golfer who is in his first full season on the PGA Tour is currently four shots off the lead after round two of the RBC Heritage presented by Boeing.
After a 2-under par 69 in round one, Bryan shot a bogey-free second round -a 4-under par 67 has him at minus-6. He started his round with three straight birdies on the front nine. His lone birdie on the back nine came on the par 4 13th.
Bryan knows that if he is going to have a legitimate chance at contending come Sunday, he will have to go low.
"Making the cut is always good, getting to play on the weekend," Bryan said.
"It looks like I'm going to have to put a couple of good numbers up on the weekend, make a run and that's kind of what we're preparing to do."
Also in that group at 6-under is Aiken's Kevin Kisner and Wofford graduate William McGirt, a native of Lumberton, North Carolina.
Former Gamecock golfer Mark Anderson, a native of nearby Beaufort, is at minus-3 for the tournament after a 1-under 70 in round two.
The Palmetto State's only PGA Tour stop resumes Saturday with weekend coverage on News19 starting a 3:00 pm each day.
Bryan is scheduled to tee off shortly after 1:00 pm Saturday. Anderson goes off at 10:17 am.
There is a strong Clemson contingent in the field. Sam Saunders, the grandson of the late Arnold Palmer, is at 7-under par. Former U.S. Open champion Lucas Glover is at 3-under par.
The cut came in at minus-1. Bishopville's Tommy Gainey shot a three-over par 74 and missed the cut by a couple of shots. Former Clemson All-American Ben Martin will also miss the weekend.
