Tyrrell Hatton entered the second round of the U.S. Open at 1-under par and tied for 11th. Through his first three holes at Torrey Pines he was still 1 under and had a 94.5% probability to make the cut.

But a double bogey on the par-5 13th hole followed by two bogeys on Nos. 15 and 17 saw the Englishman turn on 4-over 40. He dropped two more shots on 1 and 2 and two more on 6 and 8 en route to a 7-over 78. He signed for a two-day score of 6-over par and missed the cut by three strokes.

Hatton, the world No. 10, was one of just two players who missed the cut after opening with an under-par round.

The other was little-known Hayden Buckley, who was a surprising T5 after a first-round 69. The world No. 301, who plays on the Korn Ferry Tour, came crashing back to earth on Friday with an 82 to miss the cut by a mile.

Cameron Smith (72-75, +5), Zach Johnson (75-73, +6), Matt Kuchar (73-75, +6), Will Zalatoris (75-74, +7), Billy Horschel (74-75, +7), Tony Finau (74-76, +8), Abraham Ancer (73-77, +8), Webb Simpson (79-73, +10), Henrik Stenson (76-7, +10), and Justin Rose (78-77, +13) were among some of the marquee names who missed the weekend.
