Bluffton’s Bryson Nimmer put together a strong second round Wednesday at Skokie Country Club in Glencoe, Ill., shooting 3-under-par 68 to move inside the cut line after 36 holes at the Western Amateur Championship.
Nimmer was in danger of missing the cut after a 1-over 72 in Tuesday’s first round, but he got off to a quick start in round two. The former Hilton Head Christian Academy star and current Clemson All-American birdied his first hole and followed a bogey at No. 2 with an eagle on the par-5 third. He finished the front nine at 1-under and made three birdies against one bogey on the back to finish at 3-under.
Nimmer is tied for 38th and has a lot of work left to do to get back into contention. Australia’s Ruben Sondjaja leads at 12-under, one shot ahead of Brad Dalke and two clear of John Pak.
