Playing the Seaside Course, World No. 100 C.T Pan bobbed and weaved to a 1-under-par 38-33=71 in the second round of The RSM Classic and at even-par 71-71=142, missed the cut by two shots.

A total of 77 pros and one amateur from a field of 155 pros and one amateur made the 36-hole cut of 2-under 140. Pan, a pre-tourney 20/1 outright, was highest up the bookmaker's food chain to hit the road and ended his consecutive cuts made streak at 12, which included three straight top-25 finishes on arrival. On 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, the 27-year-old rang up seven birdies but took the luster off with three bogeys and a triple bogey-7 on his first hole. For the short week, he totaled nine birdies versus six bogeys and the triple, and ranked T91 in GIR at 66.67 percent (24/36). Other notable early exits include: 141- Keith Mitchell .. 142- Jim Furyk; Michael Thompson .. 143- Stewart Cink; Sam Ryder; Whee Kim; Bill Haas .. 144- Chesson Hadley .. 145- Russell Henley .. 146- Bud Cauley.

Anders Albertson made quick work of Sea Island Golf Club's Plantation Course, coasting to a bogey-free, 6-under-par 34-32=66 to jump 55 spots into a share of 10th place on the live leaderboard.

The Georgia Tech product survived day one with an even-par 70 which actually beat the Seaside scoring average by just over a stroke. After missing just one fairway at the Seaside Course, he found 12 (of 14) fairways today at the Plantation Course. That puts him inside the top 10 this week in terms of accuracy. That has allowed his approach game to shine, missing just five greens in regulation through two days of action (T2 in the field). Low rounds are becoming commonplace for Albertson who already has six rounds of 67 or better this fall. That helped him secure a T5 at the Sanderson Farms and he's now in a position to make another weekend run. Albertson went 20-for-23 on the Web.com Tour last season with 14 of those doubling as top 25s.

Cameron Champ kept his game on cruise control during round two of The RSM Classic, coasting to a 7-under-par 33-30=63 to reach 11-under 131 at the midpoint which puts him in a share of second place, just three off the torrid pace set by Charles Howell III.

The Texas A&M product was slow out of the gate today as he missed a 7'9" par putt at the par-4 second hole. He figured out the greens shortly after that, ending with nine putts converted from outside seven feet today. That was good for 4.885 strokes gained putting. Ball-striking highlights included a pair of par-3 tee balls that landed inside five feet, including a 221-yard approach at the 12th which landed inside three feet. This matches the low round recorded on the Seaside Course this week (Jason Gore). After R1 Champ said, "length on this course is pretty much irrelevant." After gaining more than 9 strokes putting during his Sanderson Farms victory, he is continuing to prove that he's more than a one-trick pony. He has now signed sub-70 scores in 13 of his last 15 rounds played.

Playing the Seaside Course, Hall of Famer and World No. 586 Ernie Els enjoyed a bogey-free, 4-under-par 33-33=66 in the second round of The RSM Classic to post 6-under 136, up 20 spots on the live leaderboard to T10, eight shy of 36-hole leader Charles Howell III.

Playing this season on a Top 50 Career Money exemption, the 49-year-old arrived 3-for-3 with a best of T36 two starts ago at THE CJ CUP on a sponsor invite. This is his third RSM after back-to-back missed cuts in the last two editions. The South African, who already used his Top 25 Career Money exemption, finished 209th in the FedExCup standings last season. He made five cuts and missed nine (with one WD), lowlighted by six straight MCs to end the season. Beginning off No. 10 tee, the Florida resident hit 10 (of 14) fairways and 13 greens in regulation, posting 1.630 SG: Tee-to-Green. He carded four birdies at holes 10 (from 42'7"), 18, 4 and 9, recording 1.692 putts per GIR and 2.294 SG: Putting. Els opened with 72 on the Seaside Course (4 birdies, 2 bogeys).

Chase Wright kept his name in the mix with a 1-under-par 34-35=69 while playing Sea Island's Seaside Course during round two of The RSM Classic, arriving at the midpoint on 6-under 136 to hover around the top 10 after 36 holes.

The Indiana Hoosier peppered 15 greens on day one but landed just 11 today. He dropped two shots today including a lowlight at the par-4 eighth when he appears to have flubbed a chip which explains his -1.222 strokes gained around-the-green. On the bright side he gained 2.559 strokes putting to make up the difference and then some. That strong putting performance has him well positioned to make a weekend run at Sea Island. Wright has now been inside the top 15 after six (of 14) rounds this fall.

Playing the Plantation Course, World No. 163 Sean O'Hair twirled a bogey-free, 7-under-par 33-32=65 in the second round of The RSM Classic to reach the midpoint on 6-under 136, up 77 places on the live leaderboard to T10, eight adrift of 36-hole leader Charles Howell III.

The Texas native and resident finished 106th in the FedExCup standings last season going 12-for-22 with four top 25s and one top 10, a T2 at the Valero Texas Open. He checked in 0-for-3 on the season and this is his fifth cash in seven RSMs with four prior finishes between 15th and 20th place. On eight (of 14) fairways and 14 greens in regulation, the 36-year-old carded an eagle-3 at 16 and five birdies at holes 2, 4, 8, 11 and 18, the latter a hole-out version. He opened with 1-over 71 on the Seaside Course (1 birdie, 2 bogeys).

Derek Fathauer kept his foot on the gas with a 4-under-par 35-33=68 during day two of The RSM Classic, reaching 6-under 136 at the midpoint to sit right on the top-10 bubble.

Fathauer is making just his second start of the season as he plays on conditional status. He opened with a 2-under 68 on the Seaside Course, played in cold and windy conditions. The scoring was a bit easier today and a move to the Plantation Course also helped his cause. Despite just seven (of 14) fairways hit, Fathauer recovered to pelt 14 greens in regulation. That led to five birdies and he dropped just one shot along the way. The Floridian is very comfortable down here in the Southeast and as one the of the top putters on TOUR he's never afraid of a shootout. That might unfold this weekend as the weather looks to cooperate much more than day one.

Playing the Plantation Course, World No. 121 Brice Garnett painted a bogey-free, 7-under-par 32-33=65 in the second round of The RSM Classic to post 7-under 135, up 57 spots on the live leaderboard to T8, seven short of 36-hole leader Charles Howell III.

This is the 36-year-old's fifth RSM, fifth cash, with a best of T29 last year (65-69-68-72). He checked in 3-for-4 on the season with one top 30, a solo 5th at last week's Mayakoba. The Missouri native and resident piped 12 (of 14) fairways and peppered 16 greens in regulation, registering 1.625 putts per GIR. He rang up seven birdies, highlighted by four straight at holes 7-10, one of those a hole-out variety at 9, taking 27 total putts. Garnett opened with a three-birdie three-bogey 70 on the Seaside Course.
