There is one list that Tiger Woods sits atop of this week: notable players missing the cut at Chambers Bay. Though that’s hardly a surprise given his recent form.
The cut fell at five-over 145. A total of 75 players will play the weekend.
Among the other notable players missing the cut at Chambers Bay: Bubba Watson (70-77), Rickie Fowler (81-73), Graeme McDowell (74-74), Hunter Mahan (73-74), Bill Haas (73-73), Ryan Moore (75-74), Victor Dubuisson (74-73), Brian Harman (69-79), Miguel Angel Jimenez (69-79), Russell Henley (71-77), Marc Leishman (73-77), Gary Woodland (74-77), Brendon Todd (78-75), Erik Compton (76-74), Retief Goosen (77-71), Charley Hoffman (76-70), Lee Janzen (73-73), Darren Clarke (77-80), Lucas Glover (73-83), Jamie Donaldson (74-77) and Martin Kaymer (72-74).
