FINAL UPDATE: The cut line finished at +1.

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2021 Charles Schwab Challenge on Friday at 8:10 a.m. ET. Sergio Garcia and Jordan Spieth paced the field on Thursday, shooting seven under in the first round. They held a two-shot lead on Jason Kokrak and Erik Compton.

The first trios teed off on Friday at 8:10 a.m. ET and the final groups will be on the course at 2:50 p.m. There’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the Charles Schwab Challenge.

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.
