US Open cut line 2020: Projected cut, rules, updates for Friday’s leaderboard

A handful of top golfers are flirting with the cut line at the 2020 U.S. Open on Friday.

The top of the leaderboard at Winged Foot has plenty of contenders who can contend for the major championship. That includes Day 1 leader Justin Thomas and Patrick Reed, who sunk a hole-in-one Thursday and trails Thomas by a stroke entering Round 2. Rory McIlroy and Louis Oosthuizen are two other former major winners sniffing around the top 10.

Meanwhile, players like Jordan Spieth (+3), Tiger Woods (+3), Justin Rose (+3) and Phil Mickelson (+9) are in danger of missing the cut if they don’t reverse course Friday. Collin Morikawa, the 23-year-old upstart who won last month’s PGA Championship, is 6 under through 18 and also may not make it to the weekend.

More than half of the 156-player field miss the cut at the 2020 U.S. Open.

Here’s everything you’ll need to know about the U.S. Open cut line, rules and results as players jockey to make the weekend.
