FINAL UPDATE: The cut line is -3. 66 golfers made the cut.

The PGA Tour is headed into the weekend in Jackson, Mississippi with the 2020 Sanderson Farms Championship. The second round is getting underway Friday morning, with the first golfers teeing off at 7:05 a.m. CT.

We’ve got a four-way tie heading into the second round at -8. Charley Hoffman, Jimmy Walker, Kevin Chappell, and Sebastián Muñoz share the lead heading into Friday. Michael Gligic and MJ Daffue are in second place at -7.

The field contains 144 golfers, and upwards of half the field could be eliminated by the end of Friday’s second round. We’ll be tracking the cut line over the course of the day to see who makes it into the weekend and who is headed home.

How is the cut line determined?

The cut line at 36 holes is the top 65 players plus those tied at the end of that group. Some tournaments will have a second cut after day three (54 holes) if that initial group is 78 total players, but the Sanderson Farms Championship does not appear to have that.

What is the cut line for the Sanderson Farms Championship?

3:03 p.m.: The cut line remains at -2. The remaining golfers in the field to tee off are officially underway.

11:19 a.m.: The cut line has climbed to -2. The first half of the field has teed off and the second half will tee off starting at noon.

The cut line opens on Friday at -1. There is currently a 19-way tie for 65th place, so all 19 would make the cut. Of course, there’s a whole Friday of golf, so this will change plenty before the end of the second round.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

3:03 p.m.: Nate Lashley, Sam Ryder and Carlos Ortiz all closed out at -1 for the tournament. Henrik Stenson and Brian Stuard both finished at even. Dylan Frittelli, Branden Grace, and Sam Burns all finished at +2.

11:19 a.m.: Sepp Straka, Wyndham Clark, and Michael Kim have all bogeyed early and are on the wrong side. Brian Stuard is two over for the day to drop to even for the tournament.

As the second round gets underway, Hunter Mahan, Luke Donald, DJ Trahan, and Rory Sabbatini all sit at even. Jhonattan Vegas is at +1, Adam Long is at +2, and KJ Choi is at +4.
