The fourth and final major championship of the year is the 2018 PGA Championship at Bellerive Country Club in St. Louis. Halfway through the tournament, there will be a cut.
Here's how the PGA Championship cut rule works
- There is just one cut, which takes place after 36 holes.
- The top 70 players (including ties) make the cut. Any player in 71st place or worse is cut.
- Every player who makes the cut can finish all four rounds since there isn't a second cut.
- The PGA Championship has the same cut rule as The Open Championship.
- The Masters keeps the top 50 players but also has a 10-shot rule, allowing all players within 10 shots of the lead to make the cut, and the U.S. Open's cut is the top 60 players (including ties).

At most, 156 golfers will tee off at the PGA Championship and roughly half will make the cut. In 2017, the cut line was 1-over, so the 75 players who shot 1-over or better through the first two rounds made the cut. The cut line was 2-over in 2015 and 2016.

The PGA Championship's current format is known as the single cut, although the major championship used to follow a match play format from 1916 to 1957. When the tournament format switched to stroke play, there was briefly a double cut, meaning a second cut occurred after 54 holes, before the PGA Championship permanently moved to a single cut in 1965.
