Final cut: The cut line is settling at +2.

The PGA Tour has teed off the second round of the 2021 Wells Fargo Championship on Friday. Phil Mickelson shot a -7 on Thursday and holds the lead in the second round. He finished the first round two shots up on Keegan Bradley and Kyoung-Hoon Lee.

The first trios teed off on Friday at 6:50 a.m. ET and the final groups will be on the course at 2:22 p.m. ET. There’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the Wells Fargo Championship.

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.
