What is the US Senior Women’s Open 36-hole cut rule, and how is the cut line determined?


At the end of the second round of the US Senior Women's Open, a cut is made to reduce the field for the final two rounds. The US Senior Women's Open cut rule is determined is a little bit different than the three other majors and from week-to-week on the LPGA Tour or the Legends Tour.

The US Senior Women's Open cut line is that the top 50 players and ties make the cut. There is no 10-Shot Rule, which would also include any player within 10 shots of the lead.

The US Senior Women's Open cut rule doesn't account for a difference between professionals and amateurs. They're treated the same by the US Golf Association.

The US Senior Women's Open cut rule may seem strict, but with a field of 120 players to start, the cut line falls in line with other USGA events, which are typically 156 players with a top 60 and ties. This is the first-ever US Senior Women's Open with a purse of $1 million. This major joins the Senior LPGA Championship in beginning to establish a stable of senior women's majors.
