While Scottie Scheffler, Max Homa and Bryson DeChambeau battle at the top of the 2024 Masters leaderboard, there’s plenty of other intrigue Friday at Augusta National. With players competing in the second round, the cut looms large. Here’s everything you need to know about the Masters cut — including who’s in danger of heading home.

How does the Masters cut work?

At the Masters, the top 50 players (plus ties) qualify to compete on the weekend. Eighty-nine players teed it up to start the week, and at the end of the second round, 60 players are inside the cutline. The Masters used to also have a 10-shot rule, meaning anyone within 10 shots of the lead made the cut, but that rule was abolished in 2020.

What is the Masters cutline?

With the final groups of the day finishing their rounds at Augusta National, the cutline has officially moved to six over. Just two hours earlier, that did not look as though it would be the case. As late as 6 p.m. ET, Data Golf had a 94 percent chance that the cutline would be five over. However, thanks to windy conditions and lots of late bogeys, the cutline moved to six over at 7:30 p.m.

Who missed the cut at Augusta National?

The 2024 Masters will be without quite a few big names this weekend. Dustin Johnson, the 2020 Masters winner, posted 13 over and will miss the weekend for the first time since 2021, while two-time winner Bubba Watson shot 10 over to will miss the cut as well. Champion Golfer of the year Brian Harman posted nine over to to miss the cut, and Jordan Spieth and Sam Burns both posted nine over to end their weeks early as well.
