Former Masters champion Zach Johnson was one shot out of the lead and couldn’t find a birdie over the last two, long holes at Whistling Straits. He wound up 11th in the standings, having started the week at No. 21.

“I didn’t hurt my chances,” he said.

Former British Open champion Stewart Cink made a birdie on the last hole Saturday morning to make the cut, and he wound up in a tie for 18th to remain outside the standings.

“I’m proud of myself the way I came back,” Cink said. “I played very, very well. I played probably some of the best golf all year the last three rounds. It hasn’t been a great year, but this is encouraging for me.”
