When it comes to “player to make the cut” bets in golf betting, it’s quite simple. The bet wins if the player makes the cut following the first two rounds. If the player misses the cut, the bet loses.
A typical PGA Tour event cut is the top 65 players, including ties, following the second round. The Masters cut is the top 50 players, including ties, while the PGA Championship cut is top 70 players, including ties.
Players who miss the cut do not get paid.
Typically, the odds for these bets are heavily juiced, especially for the best players. For example, Justin Thomas was -375 to make the cut at the PGA Championship. The odds do get better for some lesser-known players.
