Peter Uihlein misses cut at Masters: UPDATE

Peter Uihlein's stay at the first major in 2011 is over.

Uihlein opened his first-ever Masters tournament with an even-par 72, but ballooned to a 77 in Friday's second round.

The Oklahoma State University standout and former IMG Academies student recorded just two birdies en route to hitting nine greens during his second round trip around the famed Augusta National layout.

Uihlein finished at 5-over par, while the last spots to make the weekend was the group sitting at 1-over par.

Still, though, the experience of playing with defending champion Phil Mickelson and former U.S. Open champ Geoff Ogilvy was a thrilling time for the reigning U.S. Amateur champ.

Rory McIlroy leads the tournament at the halfway point, with Tiger Woods lurking three shots behind.

And one final interesting tidbit from the first two rounds - the last three major winners (U.S. Open champ Graeme McDowell, British Open champ Louis Oosthuizen and PGA Championship winner and the world's No. 1-ranked player Martin Kaymer) all missed the cut.

In Kaymer's case, he has yet to make a cut in four appearances at golf's youngest major
