Update 4:00 p.m. We have moved to +2 as the cut line as play has fallen apart under tough conditions in Dublin. There are 72 players at that number or better, including 11 exactly at +2.
Collin Morikawa and Tom Hoge are both at +2 on the back nine, with Camilo Villegas the same thru 14 holes.
Cameron Smith and K.H. Lee stay tied for the lead at -8, but the old 10-shot rule is not in play this weekend.
Update 1:15 p.m. We’re still on +1 as there are 67 players at that number or better, with eight of them at +1 exactly. There’s a chance the afternoon rounds could get this to even par, but it seems less likely than not right now.
But at +2 and in the house, Patrick Reed and Brandt Snedeker likely can call the Uber. Mito Pereira and Matt Kuchar are at +1 and done, so they’ll need to hope the field doesn’t get too birdie-happy so they can tee off tomorrow.
Update 12:00 p.m. As the afternoon tee times start to take to the course, we can begin to know who will be here this weekend and who won’t. The cut line remains at +1, and that seems like it could be the number with 72 there or better, and 11 exactly on +1.
Stewart Cink (+5 thru 13), Jason Dufner (+6), Danny Willett (+9 thru 13), and Bryson DeChambeau (+10 thru 15) are among the players that won’t be around on Saturday.
The PGA Tour tees off the second round of the 2022 Memorial Tournament on Friday, and a group of six golfers are tied at -5 as the field heads back to Muirfield Village in Dublin, Ohio. Cameron Young, Luke List, Cameron Smith, K.H. Lee, Mackenzie Hughes, and Davis Riley are all holding 16.6% of the lead as play begins at Jack Nicklaus’ annual tour stop.
The first trios tee off on Friday at 7:00 a.m. ET, with the afternoon groups beginning at 12:00 p.m. ET. It should be about 1 p.m. or so before we have a true idea of what the final cut line might be, but many participants will know they’re heading home after holing out on 18 today.
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 Memorial as of now?
Right now the cut would be at +1, with 70 golfers making it to the weekend. There are 11 players at exactly +1 after the first round.
Who is not projected to make the cut?
Hideki Matsuyama was disqualified during his first round after some paint on his 3-wood was found to be non-conforming. Bryson DeChambeau, Danny Willett and Patrick Reed are all major winners sitting at +4, and they’ll need to get under par on Friday to have a chance to play the weekend.
