Breaking down the cut line for the 2020 Mayakoba Classic

The Mayakoba Golf Classic has entered day 2. We break down where the cut line stands throughout the day.

Final cut line: -1

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2020 Mayakoba Classic on Friday at 7:10 a.m. ET. The day began with Russell Knox atop the leaderboard with a -6 on Thursday. Knox tees off at 9 a.m.

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 Mayakoba Classic does not appear to have that.

What is the projected cut for the Mayakoba Classic?

3:53 p.m.: The full field is on the course or finished and the cut line now sits at -1.

12:45 p.m.: The second half of the field is hitting the course as we speak and the cut line remains at even.

As of 8:47 a.m. the cut line is at even par. 68 golfers are sitting above the cut line. 24 golfers sit at +1.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

3:53 p.m.: Graeme McDowell (+1), D.J. Trahan (E), and Brooks Koepka (E) all sit on the wrong side of the cut line.

12:45 p.m.: Justin Thomas tees off at 1:20 p.m. Brooks Koepka has four bogeys and three birdies to drop to +1.

Tournament favorite Justin Thomas shot a +1 on Thursday. Nick Watney, Gary Woodland, and Abraham Ancer all sit at +1.
