PITTSBURGH (KDKA)  — Neal Shipley has made the cut at the Masters.

The Mt. Lebanon native and Central Catholic graduate carded a 4-over-par 76 on Friday at Augusta National Golf Club during the second round of the 88th playing of the tournament. The 22-year-old amateur finished the first two days of the tournament 3-over-par 147. He is tied for 30th place heading into the weekend. 

Friday was an up-and-down day for Shipley. The right-handed golfer started the day with birdies on two of the first three holes before carding six bogeys and one double bogey over the final 15 holes. 

Shipley had a strong showing on Thursday, shooting a 1-under-par 71. He was one of 31 players to shoot under par on day one. 

The 22-year-old golfer was the only amateur to make the cut. He also has a better score through two days than big-name golfers like Rory McIlroy, Phil Mickelson and Jon Rahm, who won the Masters last year. 

Max Homa, Scottie Scheffler and Bryson DeChambeau are tied for first place at 6-under par.
