What is the Web.com Tour cut rule, and how is the cut line determined?


Every Web.com Tour event has a cut after two rounds, or 36 holes, down to a field for the final two rounds. As of the 2016-17 season, the cut rule is down to the top 65 players and ties, with those players getting to finish out the tournament regardless of how many players finish inside the 36-hole cut line.

In no situation does the Web.com Tour have a secondary cut after 54 holes to reduce the field for the final round. With so much on the line based on money -- namely getting inside the top 25 and top 75 on the regular-season money list -- the Web.com Tour does not deny players an opportunity to improve on the leaderboard in the final round.

All players who make the 36-hole cut are paid according to the Web.com Tour purse distribution guidance.

At the end of the regular season, there are four events comprising the Web.com Tour Finals, played under the Web.com Tour banner and featuring 150 players -- the top 75 in Web.com Tour regular season earnings and those who finished Nos. 126-200 on the PGA Tour's FedEx Cup regular season points list. Those four events all have a 36-hole cut as well to the top 65 and ties.
