Final update: The cut finished at +1

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2021 Palmetto Championship on Friday at 7 a.m. ET. and the entire first half of the field has hit the course. Wes Roach shot a seven under in the first round to take a one-shot lead over the next four golfers. However, Roach has collapsed early in the second round, with four bogeys over the first five holes.

The second half of the field starts teeing off at 12:15 p.m., which means we have a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the Palmetto 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.

What is the cut line for the Palmetto Championship?

6:50 p.m. — The round has been suspended due to inclement weather. The cut is almost certainly going to settle at +1, but we might not know for certain until Saturday if the round isn’t completed today.

6:23 p.m. — The projected cut remains at +1 with the remaining golfers on the back nine.

5:18 p.m. — The projected cut remains at +1.

2:20 p.m. — The projected cut is now +1 with the last few golfers starting their second rounds.

1:10 p.m. — The projected cut remains at even with 14 golfers at even and 15 at +1.

The projected cut is even as of 10:35 a.m. 16 golfers are at even and 17 are at +1.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

5:18 p.m. — Sungjae Im has moved to +1 with two holes to go, Martin Laird is at +2 with three holes to go.

2:20 p.m. — Russell Knox and James Hahn are going in the wrong direction, with plus numbers in the second round after only two holes to move them to +2 for the tournament. Martin Laird has sunk to +4.

1:10 p.m. — Koepka finished his day at +3. Laird is at +3 and Im is at +4 after one hole. J.T. Poston and Kevin Kisner open their rounds at +1

Brooks Koepka is the biggest name, sitting at +3 through ten. Martin Laird is at +2 and Sungjae Im is at +4 with both teeing off at 12:48 p.m.
