The Masters cut line is key to golf bettors as it determines the outcomes of some head-to-head matchups, whether an outright they bet on makes it to the weekend, and of course, settles the popular cut line prop bet. 

Projected cut line update

Oddsmakers set the odds for the projected cut line for the 2022 Masters at 147.5 or +3.5 over par.

The 2022 Masters cut line settled at +4 (148).

Some notable names outside that +4 threshold included Padraig Harrington (+5), Jordan Spieth (+6), Brooks Koepka (+6), Mike Weir (+6), Xander Schauffele (+7), Justin Rose (+8), Francesco Molinari (+8), Fred Couples (+10), and Bryson DeChambeau (+12).

Betting on the cut line

Masters cut rule

The cut rule at the Masters for 2022 was the Top 50 golfers plus ties.

In 2020, the committee made a change to their longstanding cut rule where only the Top 50 players in the Masters field and ties advanced to Round 3 and 4. Previously, the rule stated that the Top 50 along with anyone within 10 strokes of the lead made the cut. 

Making changes to the cut line has been a part of the history of the Masters. The cut was first instituted in 1957 and was the Top 40 and ties until 1961. From 1962-2012, it was expanded to the Top 44 and those within 10 strokes of the leader. In 2013, it was expanded to Top 44 and those within 10 shots. 

Past Masters cut lines

Here's a look at what the cut line has been since the rule became the Top 50 and those within 10 shots of the lead.
