He drove into a fairway bunker and made bogey.Hideki Matsuyama of Japan covered his face with his cap after shooting 78 in his second round. Playing in a standout group with Rory McIlroy and Watson, the 17th-ranked Matsuyama had an 8-over total.Former Open champions Justin Leonard, Todd Hamilton, and Mark Calcavecchia all missed the cut. As did another, Ben Curtis, who visited three separate bunkers and took six shots in the sand to make 10 on the third hole. He shot 83.Paul Dunne was the joint third-round leader at St. Andrews in 2015, when he was an amateur. He didnt make the weekend in his first Open as a professional after shooting 77-78.
