Steele’s 135 strokes, after Friday’s round of 67, earned him the outright lead at the halfway stage, while fellow American James Tyree Poston joins Donald and Westwood one shot further back on four under.

World number three Brooks Koepka missed the cut after recording consecutive rounds of 74 at the PGA National, as 2017 champion Rickie Fowler, defending champion Keith Mitchell and England’s Justin Rose also missed out.
