Cut check: McIlroy, Els in trouble

Right now, the cut line is sitting at 5 over, which while not the highest cut in PGA TOUR history is still pretty high and bad news for Rory McIlroy and 2008 Honda Classic winner Ernie Els. Both are 1 over through seven holes in the second round and both are one off the cut at 6 over for the week.

Boo Weekley and Rickie Fowler aren’t so fortunate. They both finished at 8 over for the week and are headed home.

The worst round of the day and the week, though, belongs to Mike Weir, who shot 85 to finish his two days at 22 over. This was the last start for Weir to fulfill his Major Medical, which he won’t do after four missed cuts in five starts.

Others flirting with the cut include Anthony Kim (5 over, through eight holes today) and last week’s winner, Luke Donald, who is 4 over for the week and 1 over through eight holes Friday.
