Can't cut it: Stricker's streak ends at The Players


PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. – The PGA Tour's longest active cuts made streak ended on Friday when Steve Stricker missed the weekend at The Players Championship.

Stricker shot 74 on Friday to miss the cut at 6 over for two rounds. He was looking to make a 50th consecutive cut. The last cut he missed was at the 2009 PGA Championship.

Three of the next four longest active streaks also ended Friday. Gary Woodland had made 22 cuts in a row but shot the same two-round total as Stricker. Webb Simpson missed the cut as well, ending a streak of 18 cuts made. Hunter Mahan shot 76 in the second round to miss out on a 17th consecutive cut.

The new longest current streak belongs to 36-hole co-leader Matt Kuchar. Like Mahan, Kuchar had made 16 consecutive cuts since failing to get to the weekend last year at the RBC Canadian Open. With his 17th cut in a row this week, Kuchar is the new mark of consistency on Tour.
