Breaking down the cut line for the 2021 PGA Championship

The PGA Championship has entered day 2. We break down where the cut line stands throughout the day.

Who to fade for the PGA Championship

Final cut: The PGA Championship cut line is settling at +5

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2021 PGA Championship on Friday at 7 a.m. ET and the last of the golfers will hit the course at 2:42 p.m. Corey Conners is the leader after one round, shooting a five-under 67 to take a two-shot lead into Friday over six golfers. Conners had two bogeys and a birdie in the early going to start his second round.

We’ve got a ways to go before the complete field is on the course, so there is plenty of time before we know how the cut line will be determined and who will be headed into the weekend.

How is the cut line determined?

The cut line at 36 holes is the top 70 players plus those tied at the end of that group.
