Duo share the lead as Johnson misses the cut
Adam Hadwin and Ryan Armour share the lead at the halfway stage of the 3M Open, but they will not have to keep Dustin Johnson at bay after he missed the cut in Minnesota.
Both Hadwin and Armour sit on 10-under-par after carding matching rounds of 65 on Saturday, and they are one clear heading into the third round. The duo have both won one title on the PGA Tour so far, and Hadwin is 4001.00 to lift the trophy this weekend, while Armour is 4001.00 to finish at the top of the leaderboard.
Jhonattan Vegas and Rickie Fowler shared the lead after round one, but neither player could keep up their form. Vegas' 69 dropped him into a share of third alongside Bo Hoag, Chez Reavie and Roger Sloan.
Fowler's two-over 73 saw him tumble down the leaderboard, and he is now tied in 26th and needs to bounce back this weekend.
Hadwin's form looks to have turned a corner after three missed cuts on the bounce, with the Canadian unable to reach day three at the Travelers Championship, Rocket Mortgage Classic and Open Championship.
Armour also missed the cut in two of his last three outings, but a fifth-place finish at the Barbasol Championship last ime out has put him back on the right path.
Hadwin says a change of mindset has helped improve his game, and he is determined to kick on when he tees off on Saturday.
He told the PGA Tour: "I gave myself opportunities. My speed control's been really good. It's been as stress-free a 65 as you're going to have.
"I think the biggest thing coming in this week; I've just been a little bit more committed to the process and less on the outcome."
While Hadwin and Armour can fight on for the title, Johnson will need to regroup after a shock early exit. The American could have moved back to the top of the world rankings with a strong performance, but he missed the cut in a non-major for the first time this season.
