Which PGA Tour golfer has made the most cuts in their career?


On the PGA Tour, making cuts isn't easy. It means finishing in the top 70 of a field through 36 holes, and that's what gets a pro paid. Making cuts means making checks.

Over the course of a long career, making cuts becomes more difficult as a player gets shorter and their skills erode. That's what makes the PGA Tour record for most cuts made in a career so impressive, emblematic of a long, productive career.

Jay Haas holds the PGA Tour record for most cuts made in a career, making 592 career cuts on the PGA Tour. That's two better than next-best Tom Kite, who made 590 cuts. Haas played in 799 career PGA Tour events, meaning he made the cut a little better than a staggering 74 percent of the time.

Arnold Palmer made a remarkable 543 career PGA Tour cuts. That record is special particularly considering his superstar status. While the money on the PGA Tour in Palmer's heyday was minuscule compared to the modern PGA Tour, Palmer had managed to make a lot of money in off-course endorsements that didn't require him to play as often if he didn't want.
