Driving has been Hughe’s shortcoming this season as he has only hit 175 out of a possible 333. However, Hughe’s putting has carried him this week, as he sits at 12th in the field for strokes gained putting at 2.958

Nick Taylor the other Canadian in the field missed the cut by one shot finishing at two over par.

Hughes tees off tomorrow at 10:13, and is paired with American Jimmy Walker.
