Breaking down cut line for the 2022 Fortinet Championship

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

Update 9:49 p.m. ET With 73 players at -2 or better, and 15 exactly on the number, it looks like we’ve found our cut line with 21 players still to finish.

Corey Conners at even par can leave for the President’s Cup next week, as can Stewart Cink at +1.

Update 5:29 p.m. ET We have 18 players exactly on the number at -2, with a total of 70 at that score or better so far. The final two groups just teed off, and hopefully we’ll get in all 36 holes today so there are no weird cuts with people waking up at the crack of dawn to establish a cut line.

Some of the names that have completed their second round and can comfortably head to the airport include Webb Simpson (E), Charley Hoffman (E), Trey Mullinax (+1), Jason Day (+3), and Cameron Champ (+3).

Update 4:15 p.m. ET With plenty of players not even on the course yet, Max Homa holds the lead in his bid to repeat as winner of this event at -12 and done for the day.

But there are a whopping 24 players on -2 presently, which means that is the most likely cut line despite 42 players not having teed off for their second round yet.

The PGA TOUR has teed off for the second round of the 2022 Fortinet Championship on Friday, despite plenty of players still being on the course and finishing up a delayed Round 1. and with the first batch of morning players coming off the course, we’ll check in on the numbers they’ll need to play the weekend.

With the delayed draw this morning, nailing down the exact cut line might be a bit more challenging than usual. But around about 4:00 p.m. we should have a solid idea of what the final number should be for the first event of the 2022-23 PGA TOUR season, the last wraparound calendar until the circuit pivots back to a single-year method in 2024.

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 Fortinet Championship as of now?

Right now there are 64 players on -1 or better, and assuming softer course conditions today after yesterday’s weather, let’s figure -1 or -2 are the most likely numbers that will serve as the needed number today.

Who is not projected to make the cut?

Davis Riley opened with a +6 78 on Thursday, and he’ll need to go very low to have a chance. South Africa’s Dylan Frittelli and Australia’s Cameron Percy also have plenty of work to do, as they’re both at +3 after 18 holes.
