The PGA Tour is headed into the weekend in Las Vegas for the 2020 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open. The second round has gotten underway Friday morning at TPC Summerlin, with the first half of the field in the process of teeing off.

Bryson DeChambeau entered the day with a one stroke lead at -9. He was followed by a five way tie that includes Scott Harrington, Patrick Cantlay, Austin Cook, Harold Varner III, and Nate Lashley. Harrington, Cantlay, and Lashley are all getting underway as we speak.

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 Shriners Hospitals for Children Open does not appear to have that.

What is the cut line for the Shriners Hospitals for Children Open?

2:03 p.m.: The cut line has moved to -4 as the second half of the field tees off at TPC Summerlin.

12:14 p.m.: The cut remains at -3. The first half of the field has teed off, and the second half starts teeing off at 2:35 p.m. ET.

The cut line opens on Friday at -3. There is currently a 28-way tie for 59th place. 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?

2:03 p.m.: Webb Simpson, Matthew Wolff, and C.T. Pan are among the -3 golfers yet to tee off who now drop outside the cut.

12:14 p.m.: Charley Hoffman and Ted Potter are moving up but remain at -2. Will Gordon and Fabian Gomez are going the wrong way and sit at -2.

As the second round gets underway, some notable names on the wrong side of the cut line include Charley Hoffman, Collin Morikawa, Paul Casey, and Charles Howell III at -2.
