PONTE VEDRA BEACH, Fla. -- Phil Mickelson's streak of 11 consecutive made cuts at The Players Championship ended Friday after a 1-over 73 in the second round gave him a 36-hole total of 1 over.

The cut was even par.

Mickelson, the 2007 Players champion, wasn't the only big name to miss the weekend at TPC Sawgrass.

Ernie Els missed his fourth straight cut here after a 73 in the second round left him at 2 over. Vijay Singh, Nick Watney, Ian Poulter, Keegan Bradley, Graeme McDowell, Justin Rose and Billy Horschel also were casualties on Friday.

Horschel was on the cut line until he hit two balls into the water at the 18th hole. It ended his PGA Tour-leading streak of 23 consecutive made cuts that began at the FedEx St. Jude Classic last June.
