2021 PGA Championship Cut Line: Webb Simpson Extends Streak

The cut line for the 2021 PGA Championship was set at +5 with 81 golfers making it to the weekend.

Oddsmakers had set the pre-tournament cut line at 2.5, which meant winning wagers for Over bettors.

One of the most interesting players to make the cut was Webb Simpson. The 2012 U.S. Open champion posted an early +5 through two rounds and thought his week at the Ocean Course at Kiawah Island, South Carolina was over. Throughout the day the cut line moved from +2 all the way up to +5, which was great news for Simpson who extended his longest active streak of cuts made in major championships (16).

As usual, there were many high-profile golfers who finished at +6 or higher, missing the weekend at the difficult Ocean Course. Some notable players outside the cut line include:

  • Mark Leishman (+6)
  • Xander Schauffele (+6)
  • Adam Scott (+6)
  • Sergio Garcia (+6)
  • Dustin Johnson (+6)
  • Justin Thomas (+6)
  • Tommy Fleetwood (+7)
  • Matt Kuchar (+10)
