Breaking down the cut line for the 2022 Sony Open

The 2022 Sony Open has entered Day 2. We break down where the cut line stands throughout the day.

Update 8:00 p.m. There are 73 players on the course at -4 or better, but some still have work to do to make it to Saturday. Keegan Bradley is -3 after 11 holes today, and will need to find at least one birdie or better to move along. Kevin Kisner is in the same spot on No. 8, while Webb Simpson and Harris English (both thru 9) are both at -4 and just need to get home in level par to make Moving Day.

Update 5:50 p.m. With plenty of players left on the course and some having yet to tee off, it does look like -4 will be the cut line for the event. Right now 65 players are on that number, and it’s more likely to go south than north in Hawai’i.

That means Camilo Villegas, Rory Sabbatini, Graeme McDowell, and Zach Johnson are all in the house on the number and will be playing the weekend.


The PGA Tour tees off the second round of the 2022 Sony Open on Friday, with Waialae Country Club in Honolulu hosting the event.

The first trios tee off on Friday at 12:10 p.m. ET and the final groups will be on the course at 6:40 p.m. ET. But there’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the Sony Open.

How is the cut line determined?

The cut line at 36 holes is the top 65 players, plus those tied for whatever the cut line score ends up being.

What is the cut line for the Sony Open?

Entering Friday, there are 19 players tied at -2, and 19 more at -1. Look for the cut line to be around -3 or -4 depending on how the course conditions are on Friday.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

Zach Johnson and Camilo Villegas both look to be in trouble at +2 after 18 holes. Graeme McDowell at even and Sungjae Im at +1 also still have some work to do.
