The top 70 (and ties) play on over the weekend and are guaranteed at least some money. If the number of ties pushes the number too high, all golfers involved in the tie are given an MDF and are treated as if they made the cut and get paid, but do not play on. Starting in 2008, rather than making them leave, they played on and a second cut was administered after the third round.
