Final update: The final cut was -4.

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2021 John Deere Classic on Friday at 7:45 a.m. ET and the last golfers will hit the course at 3:22 p.m. Sebastián Muñoz and Chesson Hadley entered the day tied atop the leaderboard at -8. Chez Reavie, Camilo Villegas, and Hank Lebioda finished the first round one shot back of the leaders.

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.
