Muirfield continues to get the best of the players at the British Open and as a result the cut line continues to move. After being projected at 6-over earlier in the round, the current cut is projected at 8-over. A few notable names are right on the edge of the line.
Bo Van Pelt and Fred Couples will make the weekend if things hold where they are as both are 7-over through two rounds. Couples bogeyed the 18th hole to drop to 7-over but it may not send him home early. Keegan Bradley may have played his way into the weekend with a birdie on No. 18 to finish at 7-over. Bradley bogeyed four holes on the back nine, including No. 16 and No. 17, but finished with a much-needed birdie.
Boo Weekley is currently on the wrong side of the line at 8-over. He had issues coming in, which could cause him to miss the weekend. Weekley double-bogeyed two of his final four holes, including a seven on the Par 5 17th hole. Jonas Blixt may also miss the cut after he bogeyed three of his final five holes. Blixt summed up his day on Twitter after the round.

U.S. Open champion Justin Rose won't be a back-to-back major winner as he finished at 10-over. Jim Furyk, Billy Horschel and Rory McIlroy join Rose on the wrong side of the cut line. Here are a few of the notable names who are either right on the line or won't be around for the weekend.
