It’s Friday at the WWT Championship at Mayakoba, and with Day 2 comes the pairing of the field. We break down where the cut line stands throughout the day.

Update 7:20 p.m. ET 68 players ended up making the cut at -4 or better.

Update 5:35 p.m. ET We finally got to -4, with 65 players exactly on the number or better and about one-third of the field still on the course.

If it holds, S.H. Kim, Jason Dufner. Aaron Baddeley, and James Hahn will join Finau and Hoge at the airport.

Update 4:20 p.m. ET We’re at 79 players on the number, with 17 of the exactly at -3.

Tony Finau and Tom Hoge will need the number to stay there, as they’re both in the house on the exact score. Russell Henley sits one shot back of Sam Ryder now, as he makes the turn (his 10th, Tee No. 1) at -12 with a chance to take over the lead.

Update 1:40 p.m. ET There are 73 players at -3 or better currently, with 14 of them on the number exactly. Sam Ryder has set the target score at -13 after his early round this morning.

But that does mean Ryan Palmer (-2) and Justin Rose (-1) can start packing their clubs. And Matt Wallace will be going home as well as he’s -1 on his last hole of the day.

The PGA TOUR began the second round of the 2022 World Wide Technology Championship at Mayakoba on Friday at 6:55 a.m. ET. And with Sam Ryder currently the four-shot leader at -13, the focus now turns to who will play the weekend.

With the afternoon groups beginning at 11:35 a.m. ET. It should be about 1:00 p.m. before we have a solid idea of what the final cut line should be, but many participants will know they’re heading home after holing out on 18.

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.

What is the projected cut line for the World Wide Technology Championship as of now?

As of now the projected line is -3, with exactly 65 players on that number or better. But depending on conditions, it’s likely to go lower than higher. -4 likely puts a player on the bubble today.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

Jason Dufner (+2) and Cameron Champ (+3) after 18 holes have a lot of work to do to make the weekend. Collin Morikawa limped to an even par 71 on Thursday, which means one of the best players in the world will need some birdies in Mexico to play on Saturday.
