Breaking down the cut line for the 2022 Valero Texas Open

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

Update 9:39 p.m. The cut line was established at 1-under following the second round. Notable names that will be missing the cut of the 2022 Valero Texas Open include Rory McIlroy, Rickie Fowler, Bryson DeChambeau and Lee Westwood. Hideki Matsuyama withdrew from the tournament ahead of the second round.

Update 6:50 p.m. The cut at -1 is somewhat endangered, as 70 golfers sit there or better, including 11 exactly on the number. Of those 11, four are still on the course in Martin Trainer, Martin Laird, Brendan Steele, and John Huh.

Update 4:25 p.m. Aaron Baddeley and Zach Johnson are in the house at -1, which means they might be fine, and they might not if scores continue to drop. Right now 75 players are on that number, with 11 exactly on -1. That means just one player would need to move to -2 at this point to make that the cut number since the Top 65 and ties advance.

Camilo Villegas (E) and Jason Day (+2) are amongst those finished and heading home.


During the second round of the 2022 Valero Texas Open on Friday at 1:40 p.m. ET, it looks like the projected cut should be right around -1

The final groups will be on the course at 2:26 p.m. ET, and there’s a long way to go before we find out what the weekend field looks like for the Valero Texas Open. So keep in mind we could see the line move up (or down if the weather turns) depending on how things play out during the second round.

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 cut line for the Valero Texas Open?

Right now the projected cut has exactly 65 players, with eight of them exactly on the number at -1. Jhonattan Vegas just teed off and opened the round on the number, while Aaron Baddeley is +2 on the day to be at -1 overall.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

Jason Day and Graeme McDowell both shot +2 74 yesterday and are about to tee off. Cameron Champ is +2 after 16 holes, and it’s unlikely he plays the weekend.

Bryson DeChambeau also has work to do, as he’s at +1 before his 1:58 p.m. ET afternoon tee time as well.
