FROM what looked a nailed-on exit, Simon Dyson made the half-way cut in the Welsh Open at Celtic Manor.
After a first round marred by a triple-bogey on the last hole, Dyson endured a roller-coaster second round that, after starting on the 11th, lurched from an opening birdie to a double-bogey six and three other dropped shots interspersed with no fewer than six more birdies.
That put the world 168 on two-under-par for the round and three-over at the midpoint. The projected cut was three-over.
But as scoring grew more difficult throughout the afternoon in yesterday’s round, the cut was moved to four-over.
That enabled York-born Dyson to battle on in today’s third round and the final round tomorrow.
Harrogate GC’s John Parry, meanwhile, was among the leading 15 after he had a two-under-par 69. The overnight leader was Wales’ Liam Bond.
