FINAL CUT: The cut finished at +2. 71 golfers made it to the third round.

The PGA Tour is teeing off a delayed second round of the 2022 PLAYERS Championship on Saturday afternoon. Rain and wind have created difficult conditions that pushed the tournament back a day. The first round was suspended due to darkness on Thursday and golfers could not get going on Friday. The first round is wrapping and the second round is starting and attempting to push through the rest of the day.

The first trios teed off on Saturday at noon and the final groups will be teeing off at 7:01 p.m. ET. It’s unlikely the second round wraps on Saturday, so the wait for the final cut might head into Sunday morning. There’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the PLAYERS 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.
