Seamus makes Players Cut!

At golf’s so-called fifth major, Seamus made another cut at Sawgrass to continue his recent run of improved form. An awful day on Saturday knocked him back to the back of the field. However, a strong -3 on Sunday left him in a tie for 64th place to keep his FedEx Cup points total ticking over for the year.
