Update 3:55 p.m.: The cut remains at -4, and could still technically fall to -3, but that seems very unlikely. Brandt Snedeker, Charles Howell III, and Davis Love III are all on the right side of it. Webb Simpson started below the line today, but made it to -6 and is in contention.
Harris English and Jason Day finished at -3, so they’ll leave Georgia without playing the weekend. Adam Scott is -3 through 16, and will need a late birdie to survive. Kevin Kisner’s finishing score of +5 might be the biggest surprise so far. Talor Gooch leads in the clubhouse at -13.
Update 3:15 p.m.: The cut remains at -4 with the last golfers onto the back nine.
Update 12:50 p.m.: Right now a whopping 36 golfers are checking in at -4, making for one of the biggest bubbles we’ve seen trying to get home on that number, which is very likely the cut line. Brandt Snedeker, Wyndham Clark, Luke Donald, and Joaquin Niemann are amongst those at -4, meaning they would make the weekend.
Harris English, Jason Day, Graeme McDowell, Adam Scott, and Kevin Tway are amongst the group at -3, and they’ll all need to make up at least one stroke to play the weekend. 156 started the tournament, two are no longer here in Rory Sabbatini (disqualified) and Louis Oosthuizen (withdrawl), and 75 golfers would play the weekend as of now.
The PGA Tour tees off the second round of the 2021 RSM Classic on Friday at 9:30 a.m. ET. Right now Sebastián Muñoz leads at -10 after a gaudy 60 on the Seaside Course yesterday.
The final groups will be on the course at 11:30 a.m. ET. There’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the RSM Classic.
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.
What is the cut line for the RSM Classic?
Right now 29 players are tied at -4, which is set as the cutline for this event as of now. That might go even lower today as the best players in the world attack a course under ideal conditions for scoring.
Who is not projected to make the cut?
Harris English, Adam Scott, Webb Simpson, Jason Day, and Kevin Tway are amongst the players on the wrong side of the number as of now. Tway finished T2 last week at the Houston Open, but is -2 before he tees off at 11:00 a.m.
