FINAL CUT: The cut is -3. 74 players made the cut and will play this weekend.

The PGA Tour teed off the second round of the 2021 Wyndham Championship on Friday and the race for spots in the FedExCup Playoffs wraps up this weekend. The Wyndham Championship is the final event on the regular season, after which the top 125 golfers on the FedExCup points leaderboard qualify for The Northern Trust next weekend.

The first trios teed Friday morning at 6:50 a.m. ET and the last golfers hit the course at 2:27 p.m. There’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the Wyndham 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.

5:30 p.m. — The projected cut remains at -3.
