Senden improved from his opening round of 72 with a round of 70 while for Scott his second round of 73 saw him slip twenty-six places from his opening round of 69.
Scott needed something special this week if he was to play his way into the US Open field and while he still has two events to do so over the next two weeks it appears his chances of doing so this week are all but gone.
The pair are twelve shots from the leader Justin Rose who is one ahead of Emiliano Grillo.
Senden is playing just his 5th event since returning to competitive golf after a break due to family illness and this was the second cut made in those five events.
Rose’s round of 64 was dampened a little by a bogey at his second last hole but he has his first win in the US in three years very much in his sights.
Rose like where his game is at ahead of the upcoming US Open. “Yeah, all aspects of my game are showing signs for sure, said the Englishman. “I think Sundays at The PLAYERS Championship I felt like I worked into a slightly different feel, which really helped Sean and I kind of dial in a few things we've been working on. We had a good productive week last week training-wise.
“I feel like if I didn't play here it was going to be a little spotty going into the U.S. Open. I felt like I wanted to play enough golf where I would have a good read on my game going into Shinnecock.”
