What is Make The Cut in betting?

May 18, 2023

Make TheCcut is a term used in golf to describe what happens on half the course during the midway stages of a golf tournament.

Since the tournament consists of four rounds, the field is halved after the opening two games (36 holes of golf), meaning players who fail to reach a particular score after the start of two rounds eliminates; they fail to advance.

Due to the large attendance at golf tournaments (often more than 120), for a player to advance, they usually have to secure themselves in the top 70 on the tournament leaderboard to play on the weekend.

It ensures that the pitches are not too disrupted by those too far away to contest over the weekend and that game completes on time.

How does Make Cut work in sports betting?

The Make the Cut market is trendy in golf betting, especially regarding the four major golf championships.

The player stats for each course are very important when placing cut bets, as this will determine the low earnings of the players who will play in the final two days.

One example of a bet is predicting that Tiger Woods will ensure he’s in the top 70 on Saturday night as the second round draws close.

If he is not, the bet will be lost, and the player will receive no bonus from the tournament organizers.
