Scottie Scheffler almost missed the weekend of a tour event for the first time since the FedEx St Jude Championship in August 2022 – but the world No.1 was never in danger of missing the cut.

If you somehow avoided the news of how Scheffler almost missed his tee time after being arrested by local police in Louisville, make sure you get up to speed, but make sure you come back to find out the big names who won’t be here this weekend because, well, they just didn’t play very well…

Tiger Woods +7

Woods says he will carry on playing until the day he thinks he cannot win anymore and you have to wonder whether that day is coming. The four-time PGA champ carded a 77 on Friday to add to his opening 72 and we’ll see him again at Pinehurst.

Phil Mickelson +4

Heartbreak for ‘Lefty’, who flirted with making PGA Championship history this week. He remains tied on 27 made cuts in the championship with Jack Nicklaus and Raymond Floyd.

Ludvig Aberg E

We were talking him up on The bunkered Podcast as one of the four favourites alongside Scottie Scheffler, Brooks Koepka and Rory McIlroy. Alas he is the only one of the quartet heading home early. The Swede’s major record now reads 1-MC.

Jon Rahm E

Rahm has not won a tournament since the Masters last year and, whether the move is directly related or not, he has looked a shadow of himself since joining LIV Golf. The Spaniard cut a miserable figure as he missed the mark by one.

• 7 things you missed from day 2 at the PGA Championship

Michael Block +7

There won’t be a Block party in Kentucky this week, as the popular PGA pro makes an early exit. He’d certainly like another go at his first two holes on Thursday after going +5 early doors.

Adam Scott +3

The Australian inexplicably hasn’t missed a major since the 2001 US Open – but he won’t play the weekend here after rounds of 72 and 73.

Matt Fitzpatrick E

It appears that Bob MacIntyre might be the most likely Brit to end 94 years of hurt in this tournament. Former US Open champ Fitzpatrick followed up a promising opening 69 with a frustrating 73 to miss out on the weekend.

Wyndham Clark +4 

What a grim start to major season this has been for the reigning US Open champion. He followed a first-round 71 with a 75 at Valhalla and many of his woes came around the soft greens of Valhalla.

Make sure you keep up to speed with everything going on at Valhalla in our PGA Championship hub!
