AUGUSTA, Ga. – Leaderboard watching kicked up a notch at the Masters on Friday afternoon as the golf universe started to keep an eye on that projected cut line.
The top 50 players and ties make the cut here plus anyone within 10 strokes of the lead.
When Francesco Molinari finished his second round with a 67 to get to 7 under for the tournament that meant those at +3 had a shot at getting to the weekend. Jason Day and first-round co-leader Brooks Koepka are also at 7-under.
As of 3:20 p.m. ET, 66 players were going to make it, including Zach Johnson, who had an accidental practice swing on the 13th, is on the number.

The biggest surprise below the cut line at the moment is world No. 1 Justin Rose, who missed a par putt on 18 to finish +4, one off the cut line. Rose shot 75-73 in the first two rounds.
Meanwhile, Paul Casey, who is ranked 11th in the world and won the Valspar Championship a month ago, opened with an 81. Casey bogeyed the 18th on Friday to go 81-73. He finished sixth at the Masters in 2017, his third consecutive top-6 finish in three years. But he won’t be around this weekend.
