FINAL CUT LINE: The cut at the RSM Classic settled at -3. 65 golfers made it. Sungjae Im is the most notable to miss the cut.

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2020 RSM Classic on Friday at 9:30 a.m. ET. The day began with Matt Wallace and Camilo Villegas tied atop the leaderboard with a -6 on Thursday. Villegas tees off at 10:20 a.m. and Wallace tees off at 11:30 a.m., with both on the “Plantation” course on Friday.

We’re just getting underway, so there is a whole lot of golf still to be played. Potentially over half the field will be cut by the end of Friday, setting the field for the final two rounds.

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 RSM Classic does not appear to have that.

What is the projected cut for the Workday Charity Open?

12:56 p.m.: The projected cut is now -2 with all the golfers on the course.

As of 9:52 a.m. on Friday, the cut line is even and 76 golfers are projected to make the cut. 13 golfers are currently at even, and another 29 are at +1.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

12:56 p.m.: Sungjae Im, one of the tourney favorites, is at even par through six holes.

Some notable names on the wrong side of the cut line include Sepp Straka, Louis Oosthuizen, and Mackenzie Hughes, all at +1.
