“Jarryd Dillas will finish his round Saturday morning at 9:15 a.m. but will miss the cut. His opening round 69 was the lowest score posted by a Bermudian competing in the tournament historically. Fellow Bermudians Nick Jones [+5, 71-76=147] Michael Sims [+1, 73-70=143] and Kim Swan [+28, 89-81=170] all competed but will not make the weekend.
