Matt Kuchar's non-cut streak at risk after 72

FORT WORTH, Texas -- Matt Kuchar’s current PGA Tour-leading streak of 18 events without missing a cut could be in jeopardy after shooting a first-round 2-over 72 at the Crowne Plaza Invitational at Colonial on Thursday.

Kuchar, the winner two weeks ago at The Players, has made the cut in all 11 of his events in 2012.

In his streak, the consistent Kuchar has six top-10s and 16 finishes in the top 25. Last year Kuchar established a Tour record for the most money won ($4,233,920) without a tournament win.

Among the 83 Round 1 finishers so far, a 2-over score ranks in the middle of the pack, in a tie for 46th. The first-round average score is 71. Three dozen players remain on the course.

If Kuchar fails to make the cut, Luke Donald, not in the Colonial field this week, would become the leader in consecutive made cuts at 16. Sergio Garcia is next on the list with 15.
