The PGA Championship cut line is key to golf bettors as it determines the outcomes of some head-to-head matchups, whether an outright they bet on makes it to the weekend, and of course, settles the popular cut line prop bet

PGA Championship Projected cut line update

The cut line for the 2023 PGA Championship was +5 after Round 2 came to a close on Friday. There are 76 golfers who made it to the weekend, with Scottie Scheffler, Corey Conners, and Viktor Hovland tied for the lead at -5.

With sportsbooks setting the cut line prop at 141 (+1) prior to the event, the Over cashed easily thanks in part to some windy weather on Friday.

Some notable players who missed the cut are Matthew Fitzpatrick (+6), Rickie Fowler (+6), Matt Kuchar (+6), and Jason Day (+8).
