The projected cut is even par. The top 65 players and ties make the cut.

“I’m looking forward to (getting home),” said McIlroy, who has played four consecutive weeks and seven of the last eight. “I don’t want to say it’s been a long four weeks, but it’s funny. I used to think four weeks in a row was nothing, and then I feel like I’m getting old because by the fourth week I’m like, a little achy, a couple things are hurting, so I’m looking forward to getting home.

“That’s not the reason I didn’t play very well this week, but yeah, it’s felt like a long four weeks.”

Here are some of the game’s biggest names and best players who won’t be playing on the weekend.
