Some big names missed the cut at the 2015 U.S. Open

With the cut to the top 60 and ties coming at 5-over 145, 75 players made the weekend at the 2015 U.S. Open. However, a number of big names aren't playing this weekend at Chambers Bay.

Among them is Tiger Woods, who followed up a first-round 80 with a Friday 76 to miss the cut by 11 shots at 16 over par. Rickie Fowler, who played alongside Woods for the first two days of the championship, missed the cut at 14 over par (81-73).

Washington-area favorites Michael Putnam, who hit the first-ever golf shot at Chambers Bay, and Ryan Moore have the weekend off, too.

Two-time Masters champion Bubba Watson, who didn't enjoy Chambers Bay, won't have to deal with it anymore. So did two-time U.S. Open champion Retief Goosen. The defending champion, Martin Kaymer, was sent packing. Graeme McDowell, the 2010 U.S. Open winner at Pebble Beach, missed the cut, as did Miguel Angel Jimenez.
