2013 PGA Championship cut line: Brandt Snedeker safe for now, Dustin Johnson on the edge

Stuart Franklin

The cut line has moved to 3-over and a few notable players are right on the line.

Despite a lot of players posting red numbers, the cut line at the PGA Championship has moved from 2- to 3-over. That move saved a few players from the morning, like Brandt Snedeker and a few notable players are now attempting to play their way into the weekend.

Dustin Johnson opened the day at 2-over before running into some trouble early with a double bogey at No. 5. A bogey on No. 15 dropped him to 4-over and on the wrong side of the cut line. The 17th and 18th have played as the hardest two holes this week, not exactly an ideal stretch needing a birdie to make the cut. Johnson was able to do just that though, with a birdie on No. 17. Snedeker was on the wrong side of the cut line after finishing his round, but with the cut moving back a stroke, he will be safe for the weekend.

Davis Love III is now attempting to hang on. With two holes to play, Love is 3-over needing to avoid a bogey coming in. If not, Love will join Bubba Watson, Nicolas Colsaerts, Luke Donald and Ernie Els among the players who failed to make the weekend.

Woody Austin is going to miss the cut after incurring a four-stroke penalty for having accidentally playing with an extra club in his bag. Not only will the penalty keep Austin from contending this weekend, it could also keep him out of the FedEx Cup playoffs as Austin is just on the edge of qualifying.

Here is a look at a few of the players on the edge or the wrong side of the cut line:
