Roger Sloan of Merritt opened the Web.com Tour’s Cox Classic in Omaha on Thursday with a one-under 70.
Sloan was tied for 82nd heading into today’s second round. The top-60 and ties will move into the weekend. It’s important for Sloan to make the cut and do well, as the top 75 players in money will move into the Web.com Tour playoffs.
Sloan went into the tournament 89th in money with $51,573. He will have to earn at least $13,000 — and probably more — to move into the top-75.
He started Thursday with a birdie on the No. 10 hole, then made 12 straight pars. After a bogey on the fifth hole, he parred No. 6, then went birdie-bogey-birdie to finish.
