On Friday, a cut will be made at The Masters, with the lowest 50 and ties qualifying for the weekend and the final 36 holes of the tournament. At the time of writing, the cut is around four-over-par.

One thing that is for certain though is that we will see a number of big names miss the weekend of action, with Jordan Spieth, Brooks Koepka and Xander Schauffele all missing out on Saturday and Sunday at Augusta National.

Other names that will miss out are Bernhard Langer, Stewart Cink, who also produced a hole-in-one during his second round, Justin Rose and Bryson DeChambeau.

In 1957, a 36-hole cut was introduced with the lowest 40 players and ties advancing to the weekend.

Only five years after that, the cut was then extended to include the lowest 44 players, however, just four years later, in 1966, the cut changed again to include anyone within 10 shots of the leader at the halfway point.

From 2013 to 2019, the cut included the top 50 players and ties, plus anyone within 10 strokes of the leader. However, in 2020, it reverted back to the lowest 50 plus ties, with those individuals making it through for another two rounds around Augusta National.

Funnily enough, those that do miss the cut are welcome to stick around and watch the action on Saturday and Sunday, but players will usually choose to fly home. This is the case unless you are the defending champion, with the champion being made to stay around to slip the Green Jacket on that years winner.
