DJ, Thomas among stars to miss cut at The Open

Weekend golf at The Open will be without some of the world's biggest names.

Dustin Johnson, Justin Thomas, and Jon Rahm all failed to make the cut Friday, sending three of the top five ranked golfers home early.

Johnson shot 76-72 to finish at 6-over for the event, missing the cut by three strokes. His hopes of playing Saturday looked promising until he went bogey-double-bogey to end his second round. DJ played the 18th hole at 5-over par alone.

With Johnson failing to reach the required score, he becomes the fourth world No. 1 to miss The Open cut since 1986.

Although Carnoustie failed to show its teeth for some, Rahm and JT certainly felt its wrath Friday, imploding after both shot 69 in Round 1.

Thomas carded three straight double-bogeys during his front nine, leading to a 6-over 77. Rahm had his own ugly stretch, going 6-over on the last three holes of his opening nine en route to a 78.

Bubba Watson, Sergio Garcia, and Hideki Matsuyama are the other top-20 ranked players to miss the 3-over cutline.
