RBC Canadian Open cut rule

During the RBC Canadian Open, competitors must meet the cut line to progress to the weekend rounds based on their performance. Set after the Round 2, the cut line separates those advancing from those eliminated. Players ranked within the top 70 positions (including ties) above the cut line secure their spot to continue competing, while those below are head home.

The specific score that establishes the cut line is decided by tournament officials to reflect the field’s overall performance. This rule ensures that the weekend rounds feature the most talented golfers of the week, maintaining the event’s competitive atmosphere.
