The PGA Tour is in Bermuda for its final tournament of October with the 2020 Bermuda Championship. The second round got underway this morning, with the first golfers teeing off at 6:35 a.m. ET.
Peter Malnati opened the day as the tournament leader at -8, and he is on the front nine of his second round. Ryan Armour completed his round already and a one-under for the day has him tied with Malnati, who is even through three holes as of this article publishing.
The field contains 132 golfers, and upwards of half the field could be eliminated by the end of Friday’s second round. It’s worth noting Henrik Stenson withdrew due to a foot injury. 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 Bermuda Championship does not appear to have that.
What is the cut line for the Bermuda Championship?
5:44 p.m.: The second round was suspended due to darkness. Five golfers will finish up their round Saturday morning. The cut is going to end up at +1.
5:05 p.m.: The cut line has moved to +1 as the last golfers are wrapping up.
2:57 p.m.: The cut line has moved through the afternoon, but is back at even. There are exactly 65 golfers at the line, so look for some movement.
The cut line is at even par as of 1 p.m. ET. The entire field has either teed off or completed their second round at this point. There are 74 players tied or better than even.
Who is not projected to make the cut?
5:05 p.m.: Nick Watney, Bo Hoag, and Rafa Cabrera Bello all sit at +2.
2:57 p.m.: Brendon Todd, Camilo Villegas, and Bo Hoag are among those at +1 while still working through their rounds.
Some notable names on the wrong side of the cut line in the middle of the day are Jhonattan Vegas, Pat Perez, and Branden Grace at +1 after finishing their rounds. Bill Haas is at +3 after his round.
