FINAL CUT: The cut line finished at even.
The PGA Tour has teed off the second round of the 2021 Genesis Invitational on Friday, and it’s been a wild first two rounds. Sam Burns climbed into a sizable lead in the morning on Friday as he moves into the back nine. He had a two shot lead after the first round and has extended it a couple strokes through ten holes with the first half of the field on the course.
The first round was a rough one for Bryson DeChambeau and Justin Thomas, who shot a +4 and a +6 respectively. Both are dropping further on the front nine in the second round. Barring a huge back nine, neither will not the cut for this tournament. There’s still plenty of time left, but with half of the field still to hit the course, DeChambeau and Thomas have their work cut out for them.
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 this is not one of those tournaments.
