It's cut day at the Open Championship, and the top golfers in the world will be scrambling for position in order to make the cut.

Most of the top stars like Tiger Woods and Adam Scott are going along well, but others are struggling to make the cut and grind it out today.

The current cut line is at two-over par, so here's a live update on some of the top stars and where they stand.

Tiger Woods- (-6)

Tiger is currently six-under par for the championship and three-under for the day. He's shot a three-under 67, and has been pretty consistent all day long.

Woods is playing to a conservative game by using irons off the tee, and hitting the fairways and greens. His putter hasn't failed him, and he's made two birdie putts, plus a clutch ten footer for par on the seventh hole.

Tiger also made birdie on the last by holing his bunker shot from just off the green.

Overall, Woods should be able to make the cut, but he's probably focus on chasing the leaders.

Luke Donald- (-2)

Donald is at two-under par with a second-round 68. He's been pretty steady all day long, carding five birdies and three bogeys today. Donald's ball striking has been great and his putter is pretty hot as well. Overall, he'll make the cut, but he needs a low round tomorrow if he wants to contend.

Lee Westwood- (+3)

Westwood is in danger of missing the cut at three-over par. The current cut line is at two-over, but it may move to three-over as the day progresses. Westwood is still out on the course, however, so he may still have a chance to make a few birdies coming in to make it to the weekend. Otherwise, he may miss out on another major championship.

Rory McIlroy- (+2)

Currently, McIlroy is at two-over par with a poor round of 75 today. It looks like the 23-year-old will make the cut, but his shots at winning are now pretty slim. McIlroy only carded two birdies, and a string of bogeys and a double bogey lead him to a disastrous round.

It looks like he is still struggling to find his game, and his minor slump will continue. Of course if McIlroy can post two more good rounds, he'll walk away with a good finish.

Adam Scott- (-8)

Scott is at eight-under par right now, and is in solo second. He will make the cut, so all he needs to worry about is putting himself in a good position heading into tomorrow.

Scott is still out on the course, so he could make a few more birdies and move up that leaderboard. So far, he has been spot-on with his ball striking and putting, executing his game plan to near perfection.

Charl Schwartzel- (+1)

Former Masters champion Charl Schwartzel is at one-over par for the championship, and in danger of missing the cut. He still has a few holes left, so he can still get something going and make a move up the leaderboard to get under par.

Phil Mickelson- (+11)

It looks like Lefty won't make the cut at the Open this year. He was struggling all day, and shot an eight-over par round of 78.

Not good for Mickelson.

He only carded a single birdie today, along with three double bogeys and a few more bogeys. Well, he's too far back now, and will not be staying for the weekend.
