The golfers projected to make — and miss — the PGA ...

The 2024 PGA Championship began with 156 golfers in contention for the Wanamaker Trophy. But the field will be much smaller than that for the final two rounds at Valhalla Golf Club.

Dozens of golfers will be cut from the major tournament before Round 3 gets underway in Louisville, Kentucky, Saturday morning.

The exact number of golfers in the remaining field is still to be determined, though, as Friday's Round 2 was suspended due to darkness while six groups were still finishing up the back nine. Second-round play will resume for those groups, which includes some golfers near the projected cut line, at 7:15 a.m. ET Saturday.

Xander Schauffele is halfway to his first major championship as he maintained his position atop the leaderboard in Round 2. After posting the best round in tournament history Thursday, Schauffele shot a 3-under 68 in Round 2 to push his score to 12-under.

But right on Schauffele's heels is 2020 tournament winner Collin Morikawa at 11-under. Morikawa shot a 6-under, tied for the best score of Round 2, to climb up to second on the leaderboard. Sahith Theegala, also eyeing his first major title, sits in third at 10-under.

Meanwhile, world No. 1 golfer Scottie Scheffler shot a 5-under just hours after he was arrested outside the tournament for not following police orders during the investigation of a pedestrian fatality. Scheffler, who faces multiple charges stemming from the incident, is tied for fourth with Bryson DeChambeau, Thomas Detry and Mark Hubbard at 9-under as he tries to become just the fifth player since 1960 to sweep the first two majors of the year.

Reigning tournament champion Brooks Koepka remains in striking distance at 7-under, tying him for 11th. Koepka is looking to go back-to-back at the PGA Championship for a second time in his career.
