U.S. Open Cut Line 2012: Cut Projected At +8, Eliminating Some Notable Names

Only the top 60 players (including ties) will move on to Round 3 of the 2012 U.S. Open, and right now the cut is projected at an overall score of +8. West Chester's own Jim Furyk has no need to be concerned about that, sitting tied for first at 1-under. He's tied there with Tiger Woods, who is showing some of his more recent good form. Lewisburg, PA native Jason Bohn is also secure, currently tied for 41st place at 6-over. They may be safe, but some notable names will not be playing this weekend.

2011 U.S. Open winner Rory McIlroy is one of those names, who is well above the cut at 10-over. He shot at 77 in Round 1 and a 73 in Round 2, falling prey to 2012's significantly more difficult course. 2012 Masters winner Bubba Watson is also at +10 and will likely not see Round 3.
