He also finished as low media member.
Beem, the 2002 PGA champion who effectively retired from competitive golf to work full-time as a Sky Sports TV commentator, posted 1-over 141 after two rounds to make the cut at Baltusrol.
Regardless of what happens over the weekend, it’s been a memorable week for the 45-year-old Beem. He shot 69 in the first round, his first sub-70 score in a major in nine years, and followed with a 72 on Friday. This is his first made cut at the PGA since 2012.
He took to Twitter shortly after his round on Friday to share his excitement:
Holy crap, I made the cut!!! Thanks for all tweets, sorry I can't reply to them all!!! Cheers!— Rich Beem (@beemerpga) July 29, 2016
