2012 Masters Cut Line: Watson, Olazabal Miss Cut

PGA veteran Fred Couples may be leading the 2012 Masters after two rounds at -5, but the tournament hasn't been gravy for all of its elder statesmen. Two-time champions Tom Watson and Jose Maria Olzabal both missed the cut line, which settled in at +5, with both finishing at +7 after completing their rounds on Friday. 2003 Masters winner Mike Weir missed the cut after also finishing his two rounds having shot seven over par.

Other notable players to miss the +5 cut line include 1987 Masters champion Larry Mize, 1985 and 1993 Masters winner Bernhard Langer, 2011 British Open champion Darren Clarke and 2009 U.S. Open winner Lucas Glover.

Favorite Rory McIlroy is one shot off the lead at -4, and Phil Mickelson is also well within striking distance at -2. Tiger Woods, on the other hand, sits way off the lead at three over par.
