Who will make the cut at the Masters?

It's Cut Day at the Masters, with the field reduced basically in half after the completion of second-round play on Friday. So who's going to make it to the weekend?

While it's still too early to tell the cut number and who will get to play the final two rounds, the Masters cut is defined at the top 50 players and ties, as well as any player within 10 shots of the 36-hole leader.

Up until 1957, the Masters had no cut. In '57, the club introduced a 36-hole cut for the top 40 and ties, as well players within 10 shots of the lead. In 1961, that expanded to the top 44. Then in 2013, it became the 50 and ties.

All players who compete in the tournament earn an honorarium for participating, including past champions who decline to play.
