Thursday’s competition at the Jack Nicklaus Signature Course at Reunion Resort saw the completion of round two after thunderstorms halted play on Tuesday, and the start of round three in the qualifying event.
Once again, windy conditions made the Nicklaus layout a tough test, as just four players – Miller, Dan McCarthy, Evan Beirne and Bruce Woodall, who all shot 1-under 71 – broke par for the round.
The demanding conditions were reflected in the scores of the field, which averaged 78.07 over the first two days. Zero players have shot less than 70 for the week. The cut-off number for exempt status sits at 4-over and conditional status is at 8-over through 36 holes.
The Florida qualifier will move 18 players into the exempt status category on PGA Tour Canada for 2014, with the rest of the top 40 plus ties receiving conditional status.
