Each Major has its own unique cut rule and the Masters have two criteria in place, one of which must be met to reach the third day on Saturday.
Attention has been even more intense this year because Tiger Woods stands a strong chance of winning a first Major since 2008.
Another big talking point is Rory McIlroy, who is the favourite to complete his career Grand Slam in Augusta.
Bryson DeChambeau and Brooks Koepka lead after round one on -6, but what does that mean for those lower down the pecking order.
What is the Masters projected cut line?
The cut will fluctuate slightly but all players inside the top 50 will be guaranteed entry to the third day – that is half of the overall contenders.
Any players tied on scores with a top-50 player will also remain in the competition.
In addition to this, any players that finish round two within 10 shots off the leader will also be sticking around for the weekend.
After day one, all players up to position 73 are within 10 shots of the leader, meaning they would progress if things stay the same.
