Breaking down the cut line for the 2020 Workday Charity Open

The Workday Charity Open has entered day 2. We break down where the cut line stands throughout the day.

FINAL UPDATE: The cut line settled at -2. 67 players made the cut.

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2020 Workday Charity Open on Friday at 6:50 a.m. ET. The day began with Collin Morikawa atop the leaderboard with a -7 on Thursday. He entered Friday with a one shot lead on Adam Hadwin, and a two-shot lead on Nick Taylor, Hideki Matsuyama, Zach Johnson, and Aaron Wise.

Morikawa is off to a solid start, two under for the day. Hadwin tees off at 12:37 p.m., and has already been matched or passed by golfers on the front nine. Andrew Putnam has four straight birdies to open his first four holes and is now in second place at -7.

Half of the field has not teed off as of this article first publishing, and so we have a ways to go today before we know the final cut line. 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 Rocket Mortgage Classic does not appear to have that.

What is the cut line for the Workday Charity Open?

Brooks Koepka and Justin Rose are both +2 and on the outside looking in, but don’t tee off until this afternoon. Bubba Watson finished +7 on Thursday and has his work cut out for him when he tees off at 1:21 p.m. Patrick Reed is currently making the cut at -2, but he is +2 for the day through 7, so he is not moving in the right direction.
