The cut line at the 2013 Masters was set at plus-four after Jason Day finished his second round at six-under par to lead the tournament heading into the weekend.

Former Masters champions and PGA Tour veterans Fred Couples (-5) and Angel Cabrera (-4) are among the leaders, and they will attempt to teach the youngsters over the next couple of days that old dogs can still fight.

Tiger Woods, a four-time green jacket winner, is within striking distance at three-under par.

Other former Masters champs like Phil Mickelson (+3) and Bubba Watson (+4) barely made it to the weekend.

Remarkably, 14-year-old amateur phenom Tianlang Guan (+4) made the cut despite receiving a one-stroke penalty on hole No. 17 for slow play. 

Other notable players weren't so lucky, and here are a few of the golfers you won't see this weekend.

Graeme McDowell

Despite being one of the golfers who usually shows up well at major championships, McDowell has had trouble at Augusta National over the years. 

The 2010 U.S. Open winner has missed the cut here at the Masters three of the last four years, and he missed the cut this season by just one stroke. 

McDowell was able to handle the first round fairly well, shooting one-over par, but he crumbled down the stretch on Friday, bogeying five holes after making birdie on No. 2. 

Y.E. Yang

The 2009 PGA Championship winner hasn't been a major player on tour for a while now. 

After finishing the 2010 Masters in eighth place, Yang has regressed every year, culminating with a missed cut on Friday.

Yang's first round was solid. He scored two birdies to counter two bogeys and finished the day at even par. Unfortunately, Yang struggled badly on Friday, shooting a five-over round of 77 that included a dreaded double bogey on No. 18 that ultimately sent him packing after two days.

Louis Oosthuizen

Last year's runner up to Bubba Watson, Oosthuizen couldn't rekindle the magic in 2013. 

That said, last year's excellent showing was somewhat of an aberration, as Oosthuizen has missed the cut in every other Masters he's appeared in.

He shot two-over par in Round 1 and then really struggled on Friday, shooting four-over par to finish two strokes outside the cut line.

Padraig Harrington

At one point, between 2007 and 2008, Harrington was one of the greatest golfers on the planet. He won three majors in that two-year stretch and was a player who seemed to always come through in the clutch. 

Harrington finished last year's Masters in a tie for eighth place and last year's U.S. Open in a tie for fourth, which made his missed cut this year at Augusta all the more unexpected.

His woes began on Thursday when he posted an abysmal score of five-over par. Harrington was able to clean up his game a little bit on Friday, but it wasn't enough to advance into the weekend. He ended up posting a two-round score of nine-over par.

Here is a list of all the golfers that missed the cut, courtesy of
