Two Rebels will play on the weekend in Memphis.
Ole Miss sophomore and NCAA champion Braden Thornberry carded 3 birdies on the back 9 on Friday. Thornberry is taking advantage of extensive course knowledge at the TPC Southwind. He fired a second round 69, making the cut in his PGA Tour debut. His two day total of 140 (E) is better than 4 major champions.
Ole Miss and Jackson Prep product Jonathan Randolph looked to improve his opening round 68. But a rough stretch of three straight bogeys highlighted a 2nd round 73. Randolph makes the cut on the number at +1 overall. Regardless of the result, Jonathan will head to Wisconsin next week for the U.S. Open. He qualified for his first major championship earlier this week.
I profiled Randolph and Thornberry on Thursday. You can watch my report above.
The FedEx St. Jude Classic concludes on Sunday.
