Who made the cut at the 87th Masters and who will be packing their bags early?

After play came to a halt late on Friday due to some treacherous weather at this year’s Masters, those who had yet to complete their second round were sent back out early on Saturday morning at Augusta National.

The top 50 players and ties who made the cut at the year’s first major will go back out on Saturday and attempt to get in as much golf as they can with the weather forecast showing no signs of letting up the rest of the day.

As you can imagine, conditions were difficult for those who resumed their second round on a damp course with the rain coming down.

Where did the cutline settle at the 2023 Masters?

For a long time, it appeared as though the cut was going to settle on +2 but a handful of bogeys by several players coming down the stretch saw the official mark shift to +3 in the end.

Did Tiger Woods make the cut?

Tiger fought and battled throughout the remainder of his second round in an effort to keep his incredible streak of made cuts alive at the Masters. He had made the cut an incredible 22 consecutive times coming into this year’s Masters, leaving him one shy of the all-time record.

After dropping two shots on the 17th and 18th coming down the stretch en route to finishing with a second round-73, it appeared as though the incredible streak may be coming to an end. Fortunately for Woods, and the rest of us, the cutline dropped to +3 ensuring that he will be around for the final two rounds of play over the weekend.

Woods’ incredible 23rd made cut in a row sees him tie the all-time record alongside both Gary Player and Fred Couples.

Who else will be around for the final two rounds at the 2023 Masters?

Some notable names who also benefited from the +3 cutline include, Sungjae Im, who made the cut for the third time in four appearances at the Masters. The South Korean has finished inside of the top 10 at the Masters on two previous occasions.

Billy Horschel, last year’s winner of the Memorial Tournament, also made the cut. As did, Charl Schwartzel, Keith Mitchell, Thomas Pieters, and Talor Gooch.

Justin Thomas stumbles down the stretch.

Last year’s PGA Champion saw his own streak of made cuts at the Masters come to a surprising end this year. After going out in 36 on his front nine during his second round, Thomas came undone on the back half, recording a double and four additional bogeys to sign off with a 42 coming in.

The difficult stretch included three dropped shots over the final four-hole stretch which not only moved the cutline to +3, but ensured that JT wouldn’t be around for the final two rounds of play at this year’s Masters.

Justin had made the cut in each of his last seven consecutive starts at Augusta National prior to this year.
