Highlights from round two of the RBC Heritage at Harbor Town Golf Links, where FedEx Cup Champion Patrick Cantlay took the lead

Patrick Cantlay hit the final four holes to open a two-stroke lead halfway through RBC Heritage, as Cameron Smith and Dustin Johnson missed the cut.

Cantlay’s sparkling run saw him tie the lowest round of the day with a four-under 67 at Harbor Town Golf Links, taking world No. 6 to nine under and ahead of closest challenger Robert Streb.

The FedExCup champion followed up a birdie from close range in the second by drilling 30 feet in the fourth, before undoing a bogey in the seventh by getting up and down from a greenside bunker to take a shot to par -handy four ninth .

Cantlay posted bogeys on 11th and 14th but started his impressive run by rolling in a 15-footer on the next. He then added more birdies at the 16th and 17th and finished his round by making another from 20 feet at the last.

“Obviously it’s a dream finish,” Cantlay said. “I finally rolled in a few putts, and it was really nice to see this weekend. It was a tough day out there, and I thought any round under par or around par would be a win for today. So to finish like I do puts me in a great position.”

Overnight leader Cameron Young is one of five players heading into the weekend three off the pace in tied third, while Jordan Spieth moved within four of a lead after a second lap 68 in difficult conditions.

Shane Lowry mixed two birdies with three bogeys in a one-for-72, seeing the Irishman drop six shots back, as Ian Poulter carded a three-under 68 to sit tied for 23rd alongside fellow England’s Luke Donald and Tyrrell Hatton.

“An over isn’t great today, but it’s not a disaster,” Lowry said. “Look, it was really, really tough there. I just need to focus on keeping the ball in play and getting my birdies when I have them because I think I’m playing pretty well at the golf to maybe challenge at the weekend.”

Consecutive 70s were enough to see Collin Morikawa make it safely through to the weekend, with Graeme McDowell surviving four of his last six holes to make the cut on the count, as Smith and Johnson both missed the cut at once. .
