I use the beginners method to solve the Rubik's cube and solve it in 50 seconds. Is there any way to solve it without F2L?

There are other methods like Petrus or Roux, but they all involve some form of block building. CFOP is the most popular method because it has a good balance of low move count and relatively small number of short and ergonomic algorithms.
