The fall schedule of the 2022-23 PGA Tour season trudges on this week with the Shriners Children’s Open from TPC Summerlin in Las Vegas. After two mediocre events to start the year, this will be the strongest field we’ve seen early in the new season.
World No. 4 Patrick Cantlay is the betting favorite to win the event, but four of the top 21 in the Official World Golf Ranking will be teeing it up in Sin City this week. So, what is the cut line for the 2022 Shriners Children’s Open, and which big names won’t be sticking around for the weekend?
Historical cut line at the Shriners Children’s Open
If you want to see the weekend at the Shriners Children’s Open, you better find a way to go low on Thursday and Friday. The cut line for last year’s tournament finished at 5 under par, and the mark in 2020 was 7 under. In each of the last two seasons, the Shriners Children’s Open winner finished in the mid-20s under par.
Scoring at TPC Summerlin largely depends on the weather and course conditions, though, as the cut line has fluctuated over the years. If the golf course is playing short and soft, we should have a birdie fest on our hands once again.
Let’s check out the last seven cut lines at the Shriners Children’s Open:
Based on the last two years, players will have to reach at least a few strokes under par after two rounds if they want to make it to the weekend.
