While the majority of the top players at the 119th U.S. Open will play into the weekend, the gorgeous Pebble Beach layout proved to be too much for a handful of notables.
Justin Thomas, Tony Finau, and Bubba Watson were the notable names to miss the cut of 2-over par, with 79 players qualifying for the weekend after benign conditions led to quality scoring on Thursday and Friday.
Thomas' first major since missing the PGA Championship due to a wrist injury didn't go as planned, as the 26-year-old fired matching rounds of 73 to finish at 4-over par. Finau, meanwhile, shot a 72 on Friday after struggling to a 74 during Round 1.
Watson missing the weekend shouldn't be surprising, as the two-time Masters champion has only made the cut five times in 13 starts at the U.S. Open. The 40-year-old hasn't played more than 36 holes at the U.S. Open since 2016 at Oakmont Country Club.
