Former World No 1 Jason Day and Tyrrell Hatton were among the notable names to miss out on the halfway cut at the 2020 Masters.
Day had been in a good position after carding two under par in the first round but plummeted down the leaderboard with a score of 78, six over par, on Saturday morning.
Hatton, the highest ranked Englishman, also failed to make the halfway cut – which is the lowest in Masters history at 144.

Others to miss out include Kevin Kisner, Matt Kuchar, Henrik Stenson, Gary Woodland, Jason Kokrak and Francesco Molinari.
Bryson DeChambeau, however, did manage to squeeze into the cut line.
One of the pre-tournament favourites, the American faced an anxious wait after a bogey at 18 left him at level par through 36 holes.
Meanwhile, World No 1 Dustin Johnson, No 2 John Rahm and No 3 Justin Thomas are all part of a five-way tie at the top of the leaderboard on nine under par.

Abraham Ancer and Cameron Smith are also nine under.
It’s the first time in history the top three players in the world are tied for the lead after the first two rounds.
England’s Danny Willett, who won the Masters four years ago, has made the cut after failing to do so in the last three years.
His fellow countrymen Tommy Fleetwood and Justin Rose joined Willett on seven under par.
Fleetwood is still looking for his first major title while Rose came runner-up in 2015 and 2017.
