Pros miss PNC berth

Schouller, after a 1-under 71 in the opening round, shot a 79 on Tuesday, but his 150 total was good enough to make the cut for the final round. He ended with a 75 for a 225 total and a tie for 42nd place.

David Hutsell, from the Elkridge Club and the current PNC Champion, led the field with an 8-under 208.
