The projected cut after Day 2 at the 2012 U.S. Open is currently set at 8-over. There are a few big names who are in serious danger of heading home early from the Olympic Club. The two biggest names in trouble are last year's U.S. Open winner Rory McIlroy who has finished their round at 10-over for the tournament, and this year's Masters winner Bubba Watson.
Waston is currently sitting at 10-over par through 16 holes, so he has very little time left to make up two strokes to be able to continue play over the weekend.
Local golfers that are on pace to make the cut are Joe Ogilvie who is currently at 8-over par through 16 holes, and Texas alum Ben Estes is 5-over through 13 holes.
