Seamus Power had eight single putts in a second round 70 to make the cut on the mark in the John Deere Classic at TPC Deere Run.

The West Waterford man, 30,  is tied for 70th on two-under par, 11 strokes behind Patrick Rodgers (65-64).

Rodgers leads by two shots on 13-under par from former US Amateur champion Bryson DeChambeau (66-65) with Zach Johnson (65-67) and Charles Howell III (63-69) tied for third on 10-under.
