The world's No. 1 player will not make the cut at the 2012 U.S. Open. Northwestern alum Luke Donald shot a two-over 72 on Friday during the second round of the tournament, but the golfer's nine-over 79 in the opening round on Thursday doomed his chances from the start. With the cut line still projected to be around five-over, Donald is set to miss the cut at +11.
Donald was able to come up with birdies on the fourth, ninth, and 14th holes on Friday, but the hole he put himself in on Thursday was simply too much to overcome.
American Michael Thompson remains the tournament's leader through two holes today. He is at -4.
