Masters: Notable names who missed the cut at Augusta

AUGUSTA, Ga. — Under the Masters new cut rule implemented this year, only the top 50 golfers plus ties make the cut. Sixty players advanced to Saturday’s third round. The cut was even par.

Larry Mize, who won the Masters in 1987, failed to maintain his Thursday magic, ballooning to a second-round 77 and he won’t play the weekend.

Fred Couples, the 1992 champ, also missed the cut, ending the fall Masters with 77, 73. Francesco Molinari, who finished fifth at the 2019 Masters after setting a record pace for the first three rounds, failed the November test with rounds of 72, 78.
