There’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for The Farmers Insurance Open.
How is the cut line determined?

They’ll be divided into two groups between the North Course and South Courses at Torrey Pines in San Diego, California. 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.
