BETHESDA, Md. -- Some big drawing cards were packing their bags at the U.S. Open on Friday, even on a Congressional Country Club course that was pretty receptive to good play.
The cut, which included the lowest 60 players plus ties, was projected at 4 over when play was suspended because of darkness 8:05 p.m. ET.
Among those who won't play on the weekend were three members of the Golf Boyz, a foursome of American players who recorded and released a song and spoof video this week of them rapping goofing off in colorful attire: Ben Crane, Rickie Fowler and Hunter Mahan. The fourth guy in the group, Bubba Watson, birdied the difficult 18th to claw his way to 4 over.
Only one player from the top 10 won't make the weekend, world No. 10 Paul Casey, who has been sputtering lately.
Others getting the early boot include No. 13 Ian Poulter, No. 14 Nick Watney, No. 16 K.J. Choi and No. 19 Jim Furyk. Choi had won a tournament at Congressional in the past and Furyk's caddie is a club member.
Further down the world raking, Ernie Els, Justin Rose, Stewart Cink and Adam Scott were also at 5 over or higher when play was suspended. Scott was using Tiger Woods' caddie, Steve Williams, this week.
Cink, who was T10 after the first round, missed a four-footer on the 18th to shoot 77, missing the projected cut by a stroke.
