SPRINGFIELD, N.J. -- The leaderboard at the PGA Championship is stacked with big names like Jason Day, Henrik Stenson, Patrick Reed, Rickie Fowler and Jordan Spieth in the top 15.

The weekend figures to be star-studded, but the third and fourth rounds will be lacking a few of the pre-tournament favorites who failed to make the cut that was set at 2 over.

Dustin Johnson (+9): His exit from Baltusrol Golf Club came quickly as the world's No. 2 player shot a 7-over 77 on Thursday and backed that up with a 72 on Friday. Johnson finished ahead of only 10 players. He looked completely out of it from the start, never showing the sharpness in his game we've grown accustomed to this season, especially in his recent run of six straight top 10s. Johnson drove the ball poorly and putted the ball poorly, which is a bad combination that often leads to a Friday exit.

Rory McIlroy (+3): The Ulsterman was also sent packing Friday night, but his exit from the PGA Championship was filled with far more drama. The two-time PGA Championship winner was flirting with the cut line all day, and a 40-foot birdie on the par-5 17th -- his longest made putt of the event -- put him on the number to make the weekend with the easy par-5 18th still to play.

McIlroy piped his driver and had 210 yards into a par 5 in two, needing only a par to make the weekend. He came up short and right in the rough in two, and then required three chips to get on the green that resulted in a bogey.

The short game let McIlroy down in his first two rounds, as he finished 151st out of 156 golfers in strokes gained putting and 143rd around the green. Those short game woes negated his fantastic driving -- he was first in strokes gained off the tee -- and led to him heading home early.

Sergio Garcia (+5): The third member of the top 10 of the world golf rankings to miss the cut, he sputtered to a 73 on Friday in relatively easy, wet conditions that left him two off of the cut line. Garcia was loose off the tee and with his irons early and often Friday, which is not the norm for the sweet-striking Spaniard. After scrambling well early to make pars, eventually his poor play caught up with him and he faded outside of the cut line.

Other notables to miss the cut at the PGA Championship include J.B. Holmes (+4), Matt Kuchar (+6) and Tony Finau (+7).
