Scottie Scheffler carded a 4-under 68 on Friday, June 7, to take the 36-hole lead at the 2024 Memorial Tournament. After the second round, he stands at 9-under with a three-stroke lead over Adam Hadwin and Viktor Hovland.

The conditions at Muirfield Village Golf Club were tricky on Friday, with wind hindering the players' flow. The cutline was set at 4-over after two rounds, and many top names failed to make it to the weekend.

In this article, we will look at five names who missed the cut at the Memorial Tournament.

It wouldn't be wrong to say that this week was a nightmare for Rickie Fowler. He finished at the bottom of the leaderboard after shooting 76 and 82 over two days at Muirfield.

The Friday round was especially forgettable for the two-time runner-up at Muirfield Village, particularly the front nine, where he made three double bogeys and three bogeys to post a 9-over 45. His first birdie of the day didn't come until the 15th hole.

Fowler hasn't looked like his best this year, and so far, he has made just one top-25 finish.
