Cutline probabilities at the 2021 Scottish Open

A total of 156 golfers are part of the field this week at the 2021 Scottish Open. And unfortunately, all of them cannot go into the weekend, as the organizers will impose a 36-hole cut to filter out the players. 

The top 65 players, including the ties, will qualify for the final two rounds at the Scottish Open. And the cut will be confirmed at the end of the second round. But the European Tour has already drawn a projected cut line.

And according to date golf, the current line is -3. The current cut probability is based on the round 1 performance of the players and can change pretty quickly. 

The Renaissance Club has been an easier course so far. But conditions can change on this course within a blink of an eye. So according to data golf, there’s a strong 68.6% chance of cut remaining at -3. While there’s an almost 30.3% chance of the cut getting down to -2.

There are currently 68 players who meet the expectations of the current cut, but it all depends on how players go about their second round at the Renaissance Club.
