Memorial Tournament 2012: Rory McIlroy, Bubba Watson, Others Miss Cut

Tiger Woods might be playing well for a change at the Memorial Tournament, but a number of big names are going to miss the cut.

Rory McIlroy lost his World No. 1 spot to Luke Donald a few weeks back, and things have gone from bad to worse for him quickly. On Thursday, he started off well by shooting four-under on the front nine, but a quadruple bogey quickly erased that good start. He still managed to finish 1-under on the day, but on Friday, things got bad. He managed to par the 12th hole that derailed his round yesterday, but that's probably the biggest positive of his day: no birdies, three bogeys, and two double bogeys had him at 7-over for the round, 6-over on the tournament, and three strokes back of the cutline. He's in a serious funk right now - nothing's really going right with his game.

Masters winner Bubba Watson had seven bogeys scattered across his two rounds with only two birdies. Do the math and that's 5-over, not good enough to keep playing.

Other notables missing the 3-over cutline were Louis Oosthuizen, Angel Cabrera, Kevin Na, Jason Day, and Keegan Bradley.
