It’s been a long, grueling offseason for golf fans everywhere. The Tour Championship wrapped up a full 18 days ago, but the PGA Tour is finally back this weekend with the 2022 Fortinet Championship from Silverado Resort and Spa in Napa, Calif.
All jokes aside, we have a professional golf tournament to watch this weekend, and that’s always a good thing. It’s not a particularly strong field, as Hideki Matsuyama and reigning champion Max Homa are the co-favorites to win this weekend, but it’s still a PGA Tour event nonetheless.
So, as we move through the tournament, let’s check out the live cut line and see who will be sticking around to play the weekend.
Historical cut line at the Fortinet Championship
The Fortinet Championship marks the official beginning of the new PGA Tour season, but it’s a fairly new event on the calendar. Last year was the first-ever running of the Fortinet Championship. The tournament was named the Frys.com Open from 2008-2015 and the Safeway Open from 2016-2020. Despite the sponsor changes, the season-opener has been played in Napa since 2014.
Let’s check out the most recent cut lines at the Fortinet Championship:
We’ve seen a consistent cut line at the Fortinet for six years now, and that shouldn’t change much in 2022.

Scores haven’t been stellar to start the first round, as seven players are currently tied in the lead at 4 under par.
